I meant the way to avoid the distraction of the error noise when hitting Left is to mute the audio. No effect on the rollback, which I did on a basic Roamio (which I had upgraded). My OTA 1TB BF box was delivered with 20.6.3 installed. It went to Hydra during initial Guided Setup.Mute the TV? Maybe I am missing something though? Didn't need to do that on my brother's bolt earlier in the week so guess something has changed?
Connect your main Tivo to the servers one more time. Then try the mini again.I spent several hours last night trying to rollback my TiVo Mini (TCDA93000) from Hydra with no success. I followed the instructions in the OP to the letter.
I first rolled-back my Roamio Pro and repeated guided setup. I immediately enabled MoCA. Everything worked flawlessly and gen3 is up and running without issue on my Roamio Pro.
Following the OP's instructions, I then repeated guided setup on my Mini. The Guided Setup had the "old" gen3 interface as noted. After the first run through Guided Setup, it said a service update was available and the box would have to restart. After restarting, I had to complete Guided Setup once more. Everything seemed to work fine, but when the Mini finally booted up, Hydra was still installed. I tried completing Guided Setup a few more times with no success.
What am I doing wrong? I can't stand Hydra so I really hope I'm not stuck with it on my Mini.
There are 2 ways to get Hydra.So, what stops TiVo from downloading the Hydra to your TiVo again?
By far the easiest way to get the proper gen3 or gen4 UI on a Mini is to connect to a DVR running the UI you want.I spent several hours last night trying to rollback my TiVo Mini (TCDA93000) from Hydra with no success. I followed the instructions in the OP to the letter.
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.
