    Was just scrolling through my guide and now there are a few selections for Tivo+ selections....

    I didn't think Tivo+ was coming to the Roamio platform??

    Too much work to squeeze Tivo+ ads' square peg into TE3 Live Guide's round hole. Fine by me.

    No idea to know what TE3 or TE4 is. I am running software version 21.9.7.v3-840-6-840.

    It does not seem to intrude on anything, Tivo+ selections are on every other page or less. The Tivo+ program comes up just fine, feels more like streaming an app on Tivo, Like Netflix, except it is only the program playing with few options while playing.

    I’ve had it on my roamio pro TE4 for months as well. The lines in the guide come and go with service connections or updates Currently they are gone but it’s happened before and they come back randomly. I’ve never launched the program and accepted the TOS though. And I never did get pre roll ads... knock on wood

    Which means that you're on "TiVo Experience 4," the most modern of the TiVo user interfaces. Some people love it, some people less so (it's missing certain of the beloved features of the earlier user interface, TE3)--in the latter case, some people have chosen to remain on TE3 (TiVo has made that possible for all its TiVo box models except the specifically-denominated Bolt OTA model and the Edge platform).

    I'm not having any problems at all with my Tivo systems, 2 Roamio's and 3 Mini's as they are now.

    My biggest improvement to my TiVo was moving out of Southern California and Spectrum to Lubbock, Texas with Suddenlink and no more Tuning Adapter requirements!

    The system just works now, probably why I'm not current on what's going on in the Tivo world, I've not been searching for problem resolutions in 9 months!

    I am looking forward to trying out the new Tivo streaming service next month, maybe it will replace my Roku...

    Version 20.... means TE3 the original older experience. And version 21.... means TE4 the new “Hydra” experience

    I too have had the ads in the guide for a while now. What has changed is the grey screen before a recording which in time I would assume will lead to an ad before my recording is played. Gives me a few seconds to pick or scratch something; or grab my drink. Not a big deal!!

    I officially have pretty roll commercials on my Roamio. I also learned that hitting ff one time allows you to keep closed captioning while watching your show.

    The new Tivo service is Sling TV. You can try it now if you wish.

    No.

    TiVo is releasing an AndroidTV powered stream dongle which will offer steaming apps from the Google Play store in the TiVo UI.

    It will integrate streaming shows with a live TV guide that’s compatible with Sling TV’s live programming.

    The hardware is based on Sling’s current AirTV Player device but the software will be different.

    This new product has nothing to do with TiVo+ except for the fact that it’ll be available on it.
