I dont know if this has been reported by anyone yet... In RC12, if you attempt to tune a channel in the guide that does not have any guide info, it will not tune the channel. Subsequently, any attempt to tune any other channel (with or without guide info) while that guide screen is up will fail as well. It is necessary to exit the guide and bring it back up again - and then you can tune a channel that has guide info. I've discovered this on channels that have recently been added by my provider, but have not received guide data yet from Tivo.

That is true with the classic UI also. And I find channel up & channel down will tune to the channel. I have one channel that never has information.

I got this intriguing message last night for the first time. Hydra on Roamio Pro, with nothing being recorded at the time and no active Minis. Also I was trying to watch a Netflix show, not a cable VOD.
My Mini VOX had almost the same message once. No VOD, but the rest was the same.

Software Version 21.7.2.RC12:

Issue#1 for me:
If I’m watching a live tv show and hit record I often get a copyright warning that the show can’t record.

However if I hit guide and then record the channel I’m on it works fine.

Issue #2 for me:
The grids guide doesn’t scroll. You have to go a page at a time. With the lack of the Live Guide this is annoying.

The other night I wanted to see CBS2, NBC5, ABC7 and FOX32 on the guide while watching NBC5. Not possible. I had to tune to CBS2 to keep it on the screen with the other channels.

YES. Blue circle for two days now. My shoot-from-the-hip theory is that Tivo's servers are messed up, because it seems to be occurring when I try to access content that needs to phone home (show descriptions, etc.)

It started here last night. All was working great until new years day. I wonder if someone came into work hungover and did something they shouldn't have.

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.

You're assuming its only happening on Hydra though. As i said the app is not working either. So it isn't Hydra specific.

Have had that happen many times the last few years, well before Hydra was an itch in the developers' pants. So it's not just a Hydra thing.
