· I Am Sometimes Vocal
Thanks for this info. I was wondering and hoping it would work (not for me because I am not going to this). I was wondering if the interface would be the same, but of course it would (will). I would not want tiles for that and anyway, the internet interface was made by comcast and resides on their servers. Years ago I asked Tivo, Inc to talk to Comcast about the skip button code not being recognized, but of course they ignored the problem.Xfinity on Demand App is not working. When I click on the logo for it, I get a message that it is currently unavailable.
Comcast made tens of thousands of paying customers debug their X1 for over 6 months...and that was after it was in beta in thousands of homes for many months...but they just rolled on. I would never have one!!!Judging from all this activity here, we now are ALL being asked to participate in the Beta.
Maybe @TiVo_Ted can open a thread listing what has been fixed already thru patch and also as he goes, list the fixes that will be in the next update and when it might come out or comes out.It would be nice, and create less clutter, if people would scan the posts before reporting a problem.
For example, many people have reported the V66 problem and TiVo_Ted has acknowledge it and they are working on it.
Sorry and thanks. I just looked and he opening that last night. I am not on here all the time like some are (not you!). I like to enjoy my Tivo. Some people are getting snotty in here...again...as usual (again, not you!).
Read, read, read and decide. I personally won't upgrade until they add the Live Guide that they seemed to have forgotten, a few more updates and a downgrade app that does not delete your recordings or 1P's. Probably going to get the voice remote w/dongle to have it. Sooner or later we will have to upgrade if you want voice commands and new mods.So what's the general consensus? It sounds like there are a lot of bugs. Is there any compelling reason to upgrade now instead of waiting?
Was that from Gen4 to Gen3? I need to be able to transfer to my XL4, which will never be on Gen4 since it won't be available. Right now Tivo Online works for transfers, but of course the interface sucks so so bad. Don't you think there are hardly any options and is a pain?...I did one today using tivo on line via my browser.
That's interesting. On Tivo Online? Where do you see that? When I go to Manage and Transfers, there is no dual screens or dragging. All I see is the recordings on the From Tivo and check boxes to transfer and you can select the To Box.It was gen 4 to gen 4.
But the interface was simple and easy. Both systems on the screen, drag whatever you want to copy from one machine to the other.
Did they clean up the interface? This is the first time I've had two TiVo's at the same time so I don't know.
Truthfully, the more I read, the more I see the X1 rollout all over again. Who tests this crap, I would really like to know? At this rate, it might not be good enough to try until Xmas 2018...SAD.I do not like how when I open my show/all shows (which is the only list I ever use) is no longer says "resume playing" and instead just says "play". It was helpful before to know ahead of time if I was going to start the show at the beginning or not. (unless I am missing something with the new update).
Oops, sorry I read that post wrong, did not see it was about the App, BUT I am going to make a separate thread for the Resume Point for Gen3. IT IS TOTALLY CRAZY WHAT IT DOES in many different situations . I think its worse in the last few updates and am totally not surprised it is screwed up in Gen4...One thing I have been noticing consistently is when I resume a partially watched recording on the TV from the Android app, the recording always starts from the beginning.
This was not an issue pre-Hydra.
I just saw this. This is the way it has been forever. I got an XL4 in 05/2012 and had to run it in SD Mode because the HDUI was really slow and it went to the servers for many local functions, as it STILL does to this day, hence the Blue Circles. SD Mode was fast, but not pretty. They got rid of it with the Roamio Series (I got a Roamio Pro--Gen3!), probably because the processor was faster (not really fast enough). Those of you who have Bolts are lucky. Some of us not rich users cannot replace our All-In Roamios. Also if you use Moca (I do), to disconnect from the internet, you have to first change to ethernet (and you actually need the lan cable plugged in to change it...) and then unplug the lan cable. All this while their stupid Network Change Dialogue asks you Everything over, when it knows what was there anyway (yes, they made some changes to this over the years). To THIS day it does that. It's not that hard to fix small things. They have always been lazy in coding, which is why I would never go to Gen4 for Several (MANY) more updates...If you disconnect your Tivo from the Internet, the blue circle goes away instantly. This is just bad programming by TiVo. If you don't get your payload back in 10 sec, you should just fail gracefully.
