I am trying the downgrade process on a new "reconditioned" Bolt they just sent me as a replacement. Loaded at first with Hydra. I went to Repeat Guided setup. Did the thumbs down twice and rewind twice. On second push of rewind heard a "ding" like it took the sequence but after when I try to press "select" it gives the bad sound like when it can't do anything and pressing enter does nothing (with only 2 thumbs down). Is anyone else having this issue or am I doing the procedure wrong? Or does it not work anymore? Thanks.Indeed. The above "Roamio" steps worked to initiate the downgrade process on my BOLT, displaying the attached warning dialog as confirmation:
p.s. At least for the present I'm sticking with Hydra (until I get my OnePasses backed-up), so I can't say whether selecting the downgrade option required any additional confirmations.
Ok I think I was getting the "rewind" button wrong. I was using the << on the circle as that rewinds The one above the A goes back like 30 seconds but if thats the rewind for the procedure thanks - I'll try.Just to be sure, rewind is the button above the "A".
I really hope it's not broken. But it's a possibility.
That's the 'Replay' button.Just to be sure, rewind is the button above the "A".
Ted a few people are having a problem getting the mini to downgrade. Have power cycled...cleared and deleted and repeated guided setup many time with no result. Installed another one here a couple of weeks ago with no problem. Is there any help you can give? Mini 9300 with a Roamio OTA host here. Thanks.Yes, this is the downgrade process I had asked a couple of people to try before posting. I guess the testing is done! I really really really hope people understand that by doing this you will lose everything on your box - recordings, OnePasses, preferences. Everything! For those of you that still choose to roll back, I sincerely hope we'll get you back. We are listening to your feedback and working on how to bring back some of the functionality you feel is missing in gen4.

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.That's the 'Replay' button.
Rewind is the double-left arrow button (<<) to the left of the big yellow 'Pause' button (||). Above the 'A' button, but not immediately above.
@CaseyK24, you may also want to try initiating the downgrade process with the remote in IR mode. (edit: see this post for an example)
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.
