Any similar process for BOLTs?
Any similar process for BOLTs?
My guess is it would be similar, if you have a Bolt you could try to start the reset using codes above and see if it gets it going (there are prompts before it's erased so you can back out).
Indeed. The above "Roamio" steps worked to initiate the downgrade process on my BOLT, displaying the attached warning dialog as confirmation:It's the same for Roamio and BOLT.
Note that the RF and VOX remotes can be toggled to IR mode, so you wouldn't need some older IR-only remote for this rollback workaround.The thing that will help new users the most is to stress the necessity of using an old IR remote. Do that, and the "downgrade" should work for you.
You may have better luck by switching your remote to IR mode before initiating the downgrade button sequence.I just got a renewed Roamio OTA which ...ended up on ?Hydra rc11. I tried to do the downgrade as described upthread and other places but it gets stuck in a "Downgrade Error". And pressing "Try Again" about 50 Times doesn't help.
Ok, good to confirm -- as it wasn't mentioned in the previous post.I did press select.
1.) Go into Menu- Help- Reset to Defaults- Repeat Guided Setup- Select
2.) Press Thumbs Down 2 times (NOT 3!), now press Rewind 2 times,
Now press Select (not Enter)
Roamiowill immediately go to that right arrow screen, then screen blank, then you'll get a message letting you know that the rollback process has begun
Of course, the channel guide icons *can* be displayed in the gen3 UI, you just have to enable them.It was a familiar face and fun to mess around in the old ui. It came up with the live guide, I noticed the guide had no channel icons. I found it lackluster compared to Hydra.
Yikes, @TiVo_Ted may want to take note of this if there's a glitch in the targeting for the new Hydra update that just started rolling out. It sounds like your box was somehow erroneously included in the initial "random 5000" boxes, perhaps a list that was compiled prior to your rolling back. Regardless, a major goof/bug on the part of the update process.Roamio - the first time I did upgrade on purpose with the "new experience" prompt - but I hated Hydra and found this thread and downgraded successfully even though I knew I would lose all my recordings. That was last week. I absolutely DID NOT ask to upgrade again (no one in the house but me) and yet this morning it's upgraded to what looks like a slightly newer version of Hydra 21.8.1.RC6-848-6-848 without my OK. I guess I can downgrade again but I am nervous about what will happen next and losing all my recordings again and how to stop this. Is Rovi trying to kill off their loyal old Tivo customer base (I've been with them since series 1 in 1999)?
Help! I tried Hydra and hated it so I followed this thread to downgrade successfully last week - just got my Tivo working again and recording shows again after losing everything in the downgrade. Now this morning, the Tivo has re-upgraded me to Hydra again without my permission! What can I do now?
FYI... As suspected:Roamio - the first time I did upgrade on purpose with the "new experience" prompt - but I hated Hydra and found this thread and downgraded successfully even though I knew I would lose all my recordings.

I looked into the reason why someone might have gotten the update after downgrading. Because this was a test that included an email and on-screen message, we had to pull the random list of names early. That list was created on April 12th. The emails and on-screen message went out just after the update started on Tuesday the 24th. Anyone who downgraded between those dates probably got accidentally put into the new upgrade group. I'm sorry we missed this scenario, and hopefully not too many people got caught in the middle.
That's the 'Replay' button.Just to be sure, rewind is the button above the "A".
Quite possibly not, as I'll be directing a couple other threads with unhappy Hydra Mini users to your post. (i.e. Minis running Hydra that refuse to downgrade to the OS being run on their host DVR.)Ok after trying to figure out what step I was doing wrong I called Tivo to ask what they say the procedure is. Turns out the issue isn't the procedure. Seems the issue is on the Tivo software side and its a known issue that popped up and they are looking into it. I wonder if any Bolt downgrade has worked in the last day or two.
Try putting your remote control into IR mode before attempting the downgrade button sequence.Hi everyone. I just purchased a new Roamio Pro. Guided setup forced the new Hydra on it. When I tried to downgrade to the older UI, using the two thumbs down, two rewinds and select, nothing happens. Am I doing something wrong or is it not working?? Thanks for any help.
