2016 Tivo Software Update

Does anyone have any further info on this update... Is it still being tested or is it ready to be rolled out? Is there a schedule for the update rollout?

Re: 2016 Tivo Software Update

It's rolling out now. I got it last week. Beware. At the moment there's a glitch that stops TiVo recording whilst in standby so leave it on all the time when you do get it. Also can make it run (even) slow(er). Try thumbs up thumbs down play play on your remote. You should hear a beep. It does seem to tell it run better.

I hope they have suspended the roll out until they have a fix. Rolling out a fix that hobbles the ability to record, which is a significant part if not whole purpose of the TIVO would lead them into trouble not only with their customers  and possibly ofcom but also open them up to legal challenge as the ability to record programs whilst away has been impaired and that would be, in my non legal opinion, an understood part of the consumer contract of TIVO use.

Any TIVO using legal mind out there care to give us an opinion?

Re: 2016 Tivo Software Update

In my very humble opinion it's a minor niggle. Leave the box on. Sorted.

Re: 2016 Tivo Software Update

Will we know of we've had it (ie visually) or is there a version number I can check for?

The easiest way is to see what the heading is if you press Home, followed by 1.

If it says Manage Series Link+, you have the new software.

Re: 2016 Tivo Software Update

I think I found a fix for both standby issues and slowness. It worked on my box. I posted in this thread:
