Houston we have a problem.....my Tivo Roamio updated with no issues. My minis no such luck. I've rebooted both minis. It takes you to the old UI and then my screens go blank. Anyone else have the same issue? Any recommendations on how to fix this?

I have it downloading on the mini now. I went and added the mini to the list on the priority upgrade page. Do that wait a bit then force a connection on the mini. It will take a bit of patience to navigate to network settings but it works.

The Bolt+ updated fine.
My Minis (centered TiVo logo) aren't happy. On both I have had to pull the power twice due to blank screens when I initially turned on the TV. After the reboot, both keep flickering with the TiVo click sound. Then, they go to a blank screen. I'm not sure what's happening. Will pull the power a few more times.
I have one on the shelf not hooked up I will try out later that has 20.7.4

Here's what i did. I selected my mini on the priority update page. Waited a bit and forced a connection. Getting to network preferences takes a bit of patience but you'll get there. Once it downloads pull the plug to update. The thumbs down screen won't stay on long enough.

Glitch?
On my Mini:
Press Guide and select a channel. It goes to full screen. Press Guide again and the channel I was watching appears in the small box. Fine. Go back to that channel in full screen.
Now when I press the back button, it takes me to the guide but the preview window is blank.

On my Mini (gen3), it never shows a preview screen... I was in my kid's room the other day, and when I went to menu, it did show a preview, but then I clicked Zoom and back to the menu again, and it was gone - never to return to this point. I assumed it was a glitch, as I had never seen the live tv pip before on the Mini... So is Hydra supposed to show the preview window?

My instant impression (after about two minutes) is that the menus are nowhere near as intuitive. E.g., I couldn't find the To Do List.

I assume that will get easier with experience!

Pretty, though. Kinda nice to feel like I've finally left the 20th century behind. ;)

Mini:
Go to Guide and select a channel and watch the channel in full screen.
Press TiVo home on remote. Then press Guide. It takes me back the the very first channel in the lineup instead of the last channel I was watching. Also, there is no preview window of the last channel I was watching.

There's a lot to like about Hydra.

One thing that wasn't obvious in the demo videos is that there is no longer an audio dropout when going from Live TV --> TiVo Central or from TiVo Central --> Live TV.

One thing that surprised me is that you can't resume watching a show with a single click. I would expect that strip along the bottom to immediately resume playback of wherever you were (if in an episode, resume from that point; if not in an episode, resume watching the next episode in episodic order) if you hit "Play." You have to drill into the show to initiate playback. Maybe I'm missing an option setting somewhere.

You can set-up Home Shortcuts.
Menu > Settings > User Preferences > Home Shortcuts

Couple of impressions. The back button is used a lot more. Not hitting left to back out. The amount of channels in the guide is quite large and gets small on my large screen from a distance. And oddly the fan in my bolt seems like it is running a lot faster lol. I can hear it a little now

It's been years since I've had a dropout doing that in my setups. That's more equipment related. They fixed that a long time ago.

I'm still waiting for the Hydra update. But I din't sign up my boxes for Hydra until 8:50AM EDT. I decided to update three boxes. Saving my Main Bolt and my Mini connected to it for later.
