    That has nothing to do with hydra. The lag is a tivo server issue. It's been affecting all users lately on gen3 and 4 UI.

    Oh is that why mine have been so unusable, to the point my wife has asked that we get rid of Tivo.

    Read through the threads a bit. I have read multiple posts from people on both UI's lately complaining about blue spinning circles.

    Well at this point it does not really matter, if the wife wants it gone she is going to get what she wants. It has been going on since we "upgraded" to the new UI basically making what was a wonderful piece of hardware into an unusable one.

    While using the grid guide?
    I don't think the grid guide needs to be connected to the TiVo server. I am only surfing the grid guide and I am getting delayed responses to button clicks and the info at the top takes 5 to 10 seconds to appear.

    Something sounds wrong with your setup then. Browsing the guide for me is very fast. Is this the host or a mini? When i move around the guide the info at the top while not instantaneous certainly isn't even a second for it to appear.

    I just added a bolt. Already have a Romeo pro. The bold gets V66 error. Can't watch any channels and also won't stream from the Romeo.
    I believe I bought an expensive paperweight

    Something is definitely not right. I have a roamio and not seeing that issue at all.

    I’ve been saying the same thing for weeks. Developers should be fired.

    Finally got it working. Called comcast and they sent an initialise signal to the bolt, then had to hard reboot the bolt (unplug and plug back in)

    Just got the Mini and add me to the list of users with a Bolt and the V66 issue. Tivo chat doesn't seem to have a date for a fix and it has been a long time from what I can see of others with this problem.

    The V66 errors are resolved for the vast majority of users with RC9 and/or RC11. If you are still having issues on RC11, I suggest you try rebooting your router and then reboot each TiVo box (unless you are using fixed IPs, in which case you have a different problem).

    Just saw a v66 on my Mini Vox that is running RC11. This happened after a modem and router reboot. At that point the Mini couldn't do Live TV. Thumbs Down > Thumbs Up > Play > Play which has worked in the past didn't work this time. I had to reboot the Mini to get back to Live TV.

    If you don't use static or reserved IP addresses for the TiVo equipment, then rebooting the router may change the IP addresses assigned to some devices. When rebooting your router in these cases, you should also reboot all network devices.

    D/U/P/P resets the UI only...your problem was that the Mini had a different address for the host TiVo than was currently assigned. That required resetting the network adapter.

    A Mini VOX is weird. When I power mine off, the device shows up in My Shows grayed out. Usually that only happens to devices that are there before having power removed, and never to a Mini with the classic UI. Probably I shouldn't be surprised at networking stuff using a TiVo.

    I'm getting a V66 error (No TV Channels). First saw it yday and now, again today once I turned on the TiVo. Clickling "OK" takes away the error. Anyone else experiencing this? I see this on a Bolt with the latest Hydra update

    Is the V66 on the main box then try recording one channel then going live to another channel, this will "kick start" the tuners. Have had several clients with this issue on the new Vox. This fixed most all of them. Have not tried this on a mini. fingers crossed

    Since V66 is a CableCard signal issue why would rebooting your router fix it?

    I have two Bolts I just received. Neither one would work even though the CableCards work fine in my old boxes.

    I’m on Comcast. Sounds like TiVo has another mess on their hands.
