    There have been mentions about an update to the TS4k. Can people post what changes they are seeing, what was and was not fixed?

    Good to see some of the major issues being addressed. No mention of issue with forced HDR though which many have complained about too and cited as a reason to return their TS4K.

    Is there any option for turning off HDR and/or DV altogether? If not, they really need to stop effing with permissions for controlling the settings. Sure, make HDR/DV on by default, but FFS let us turn it off.

    Im sorry but that is like one sweat droplet off of a bottle of beer on a hot day. Im so glad it can actually control AV equipment correctly now. I have two and have moved them to TV's I dont use that much until Tivo decides whether they are serious or not.

    In the thread on Reddit, the Tivo spokesperson indicates they're aware of the HDR issue, and that they'll fix it soon. How they intend to fix it is unclear from the responses. This is at least encouraging enough for me to keep my TS4K. I'm near the end of 30 days and I was considering returning it.

    I was one of the first people to discover this update early this morning when it froze and crashed and rebooted with an update. I posted in the Facebook groups but forgot to on here! Anyways this is new and now it will turn my tv off (before it only turned it on). Still doesn’t control the volume or mute but I haven’t tried re programming the remote to see if codes stick now

    Oh look they added the menu that was there all along from my other topic, but didn't you know - add descriptions and stuff or actually properly title the options. How fun. Sigh...

    Is there a description somewhere on what these switches actually do? I don’t use CEC much, sorry.

    As far as I know...
    1. Turn off CEC Entirely
    2. Wake Tivo from CEC
    3. Sleep Tivo from CEC

    Because that user story didn't get completed before the go live deadline. Deadlines often run against the intentions/goals of the developers.

    Update made my CEC worse and that new menu option did nothing to stop it from taking over my inputs.

    I’m back to turning off CEC on my tv.

    Just a ridiculous example of rushing something to the public without adequate testing/features

    Just got this email from TiVo about yesterday’s update... (I wish they would send emails about updates to the regular TiVo’s I still have no idea what the latest v8 TE4 update did or what bugs it fixed lol)

    I got that too. And that’s not my experience with CEC.
