    During one of my many daily manual connections, Tivo downloaded and updated the software on my TE3 Bolt from 20.7.4d.RC8 to 20.7.4d.RC13.
    Again, I'm not sure what if anything was fixed or changed.

    I just did a quick connection, and my Roamio Pro just updated from RC8 to RC13 as well. So whatever is in it, Roamio's are getting it as well. It was a *very* quick update.

    Got the update on my Roamio OTA Series 5 this afternoon. At first glance, I don't see any noticeable difference. Too bad the new TiVo corporation doesn't publish release notes like they used to...

    Thanks for the heads up. I just tried making a few manual calls to the TiVo Service on my Premiere (TCD746320) and haven't received any updates. Still on version RC8.

    Just checked my Bolt and it was pending restart. Did that and updated. Can't notice anything. I am sure it's just my crazy brain but it felt a wee bit snappier.

    My TE3 Bolt and Roamio both were Pending Restart this morning, and ended up going from RC8 to RC13 after the restart. No idea if there's any changes. Looks the same to me.

    Before this morning, when was the last time you restarted? :) Maybe it's just the reboot that helped -- I know it does for my PCs and phone.

    My Roamio Plus was "Pending Restart" this morning, and I forced a connection on my Roamio Pro, so both have now updated to RC13.
    Still haven't noticed any changes.

    I think this is a change: In 1P manager, if you move right on a program, there is a large thumbnail above the options.

    HEY! There You Are (I haven't been here for a long time)...LOL. I usually keep a good record of the updates, but the last one I had in my log was 4b.RC3 on 11-19-2019, but I actually have 4d.RC8. IDK what happened. Do you know when that one was released, Joe? I was going to do a connect because the stupid guide did not have info for Bill Maher tonight and I saw the update (I was shocked, but Not excited or hopeful). I can't reboot it till around 1 am..it's busy...LOL. Is this a long update or a short one?

    Hope you are well and got your shots, Despite "our" "governor"!!! I got my 2nd last week. I am 65. Weird, I Never get a flu shot, but I got this one. No side effects with the Phizer one.

    OK, take care Joe and be safe and well.

    Super short. The restart on my Bolt and Roamio seemed to take as long as just a normal restart without an update. Going from RC8 to RC13.

    Was wondering why my guide is out of date and noticed my Roamio Pro was pending restart, so I rebooted it. It was done in about 3 minutes.

    I haven’t watched an update in a long time, so I don’t know how they work these days, but there was no additional reboot as part of the process. Just one and done.

    There are more changes to the 1P manager. Seasons of Manifest now lists "2019,2020 and 2021". The new L&O doesn't display Season 1, only Year 1". These may change.

    A major fix in this release is that you can now correctly connect to a TE3 box that is in standby from another Tivo. I also noticed that the Tivo App also connects again to a Tivo that is in standby.
    I tested this connecting to a Roamio Plus and a Roamio Pro from both my Bolt and Android App.
    We've been waiting for this fix since 2018! I hope it sticks around for a while.

    Will need to see if it resolves similar Mini issues when trying to connect to a host DVR in Standby mode.

    Thanks for the heads-up.

    I've seen this before with some shows on TE4. Horrible, IMO, I like seeing shows broken down by season, not year. With year some season 1 could be say 2019, some season 1 could be 2020. And so on. So 2019 could have season 1, 2020 some season 1 and some season 2, 2021 some season 2 and some season 3. Have seen this with some older shows too, from 60s, 70s, 80s etc. A total screw up IMO, why would they even consider doing that, majority of shows run in two years, start in fall, end in April/May whatever. When looking for a show where I recorded the entire series I am usually looking for an episode from a specific season. Have no idea what specific YEAR/years that season was. Was only TE4 before, if now migrating to TE3 bummer..........................

    Just curious, why put a Tivo into standby? I USED to, thinking there would be power saving. But tested with a kill-a-watt, almost no difference. So I stopped using it since it could cause issues like the one I guess they fixed with this update. Can't say if standby could increase drive life, it does not completely shut down the drive, some say it's better for the drive to leave it running "normally" at all times but again I can't say.
