    How is the performance with apps? specifically YouTube and Netflix. Any improvement?

    They seem the same to me (on a Roamio Pro).

    Anyone else having a problem seeing recording from other Bolt's or Roamio's in the new interface? I can't see my basement Roamio Pro recording from my living Room Bolt and vice versa.

    I can see recordings from my other Roamio, but can only stream them, not transfer.

    I have my first gen mini working fine now. Had to explicitly add the mini to the "early request" list. Once the download completed and installed I had to reboot twice to get the connection to the upgraded DVR working.

    BTW..navigating to the "My Shows" list from a mini running 20.7.4 connected to an upgraded DVR (via Devices on the host DVR) returns an old SD list. I thought I was back on a Series 2 for a moment. ;)

    My experience so far: I successfully updated my existing Bolt and Mini. Then I tried installing a new Vox Mini. It took me through the guided setup once and installed an "important update". Then it brought me to the guided setup a second time - still with the old interface. It goes through all the steps with green check marks until then end where it throws a "could not verify info" - error S308. Several retries and a power cycle haven't helped.

    I use Control4 universal remotes. I will have to map over the BACK key to really use the new interface (which I like very much so far!).

    If the new Vox Remote is Bluetooth does anyone know if I can still have the Control4 network interface doing its thing but use the Vox remote via Bluetooth in a pinch. The Tivo Bolt is in a closet within Bluetooth range. I don’t think I can use the RF functionality currently if I have Control4 in use. It’s IR only.

    Also, can I get the new Mini and just use that remote with the Bolt?

    Thanks!

    I’m having the same problem as you. My house I have a bolt and a mini. The bolt updated no problem and the mini finally updated after unplugging and rebooting about 4 to 5 times. Now I’m at my in-laws house and got their bolt working no problem but their three minis after seven reboot still won’t work and are doing what you described.

    You'll need to submit their TSNs and wait for Hydra to be available via a forced network connection.

    If you wait long enough on the black screen, you'll get an Opera error page saying that an invalid URL was submitted. I think they have a scripting problem.

    For those in the future. I submitted all three for update. Downloaded at the same time. While my Bolt was rebooting, I rebooted the minis. One came up fine. The other may have but I left it for a while and it may have timed out. I unplugged and it came up fine.

    I did not select my Minis when I requested the early access to my Bolt and now when I go back to that page, it says I have no eligible devices to update. Any suggestions? Is there another way to add the minis to the early access list?

    Thanks in advance for any assistance!

    I'm sorry, but I haven't had a chance to look into this. I've been focusing on general upgrade issues. Has anyone else tried this functionality?

    I've gone back to the early access page and all my active boxes, that were not already submitted, were listed. Check that they show in your active devices list. They should just show up.

    Overall, yes.

    There are a few nuances but so far it is pretty consistent.

    I still prefer lists to tiles for things like my recordings and would like options in that but the overall navigation is pretty clean.

    My Mini is back up and running. Had to take the upgraded Roamio offline so the Mini would stop freaking out. I requested the update for the Mini via the update page (I had not done so originally) and about 90 minutes later it downloaded the update. Now it will play nice with the Roamio again.

    Initially the Mini wouldn't tune live TV; told me there was a Cable Card problem. But it would play recordings. A reboot brought back live TV.

    A rough update, unfortunately :(

    You can turn Tiles Off for My Shows.

    Menu > Settings > User Preferences > My Shows Options
    Show Episode Strip: No
    Go to episode list: Yes

    Same here Ted, 3 Minis in the loop trying to connect to an upgraded 500GB BOLT. Anything you can do to help would be appreciated.

    Thanks Diana, just checked again and none of my boxes are there any longer. Says I have no eligible devices, very odd. Thanks for trying!
