If those ads are being downloaded via internet, they need to start paying me for the data each month.
I have Plex Pass lifetime myself. Old HDHomerun for backup OTA. Ive been waiting for them to release a 6 tuner cablecard unit before upgrading. Also have a 4 tuner Premier to fall back on, hoping it wont support the ads. I really miss SageTV to be honest. That was the best DVR/Server I have ever owned, but both SageTV boxes have stopped working, so I shut the server down.I'll reserve judgement until I see how it works on my system. If it ends up being intrusive and not easy to skip, I can always move over to my HDHomeRun + Plex backup. It works really well and can remove the commercials completely after the recording is finished.
Do you have a mini? If so, when you try to play a recording from the Bolt+, does the mini also play the pre-roll ad? If not, I might just use a mini and keep the bolt disconnected from the TV.I am now getting pre-roll advertisements every time I start a DVR recorded show on my lifetime Bolt+.
Under system info, I believe TE3 Software version is 20.7.4.RC2With the risk of being shamed - how do you know if you have TE3? I currently have three Premier XL units, all with Lifetime service. So far, I've seen no preroll ads.
Yea, I plugged in my Premier to get the software version, and noticed that it wouldnt even work with TE4. I had never paid attention, since it is my backup.Hmm, well since they have Premieres they HAVE to be on TE3 correct? Since a Premiere cannot run TE4? So they would not see the "Get New Experience" app since a Premiere cannot run it?
Your advice good for someone checking a Roamio or Bolt though.
Guide ads were one of the reasons I dumped DirecTv and their overpriced DVR/HD/Multiroom package.Can confirm pre-roll ads have been removed from my system after calling Tivo on Sunday.. HOWEVER, the guide ads are stil there. Will call them today. These are extremely annoying, i have memory of where specific channels are, now everything is all dorked up.
