    I don't recall my machines randomly rebooting. On occasion if I reboot my router, the Premiere and Premiere XL will lock up. It will turn on OK, but the minute I press the TiVo button to get my menu, the miniature screen goes in the right upper corner as usual, and the rest of the screen remains blue forever. It's like it's frozen. That's the only issue I've experienced. Recordings will still complete if they are in progress. The remedy was to pull the plug for a few seconds and plug back in. This only happened maybe once per month.

    I use antenna only. I have no cable. I wonder if these random reboots are happening to people who use cable cards? Maybe it's a hardware issue based on some odd signal coming from the cable company?

    I received the new version on one of my machines and haven't noticed a single thing different yet. Sometimes TiVo sends a TiVo message with their update so you can read what the update entails. I received no message with this update. I've only had it for 2 days. I may notice something in time. Maybe the monthly lockup after rebooting my router will be gone away.

    Using page up/down in the guide seems very fast now.

    Transitioning from full screen tv to the guide and back, I no longer have audio dropouts from the live TV sound.

    I would doubt a new app would show up so quickly. Normally that will become available on all boxes at the same time.

    Good question I just was going to ask, after all my Tivos were updated I tried to update my Mini, nothing happened, except for software updates why does the Mini call in at all ?

    Account status updates since a service plan is required for it? That's a good question.

    Is that with the audio setting on Dolby Digital and connected via HDMI to the television with sound coming from the television? That's where I've noticed the audio dropping out to be the worst, and found changing to PCM audio to lessen the severity of it.

    It gets the current account status. It also gets a list of boxes on the account it is authorized to stream from. I would imagine there is quite a bit of configuration it gets from the connection as well.

    But the real question is: Does this fix the random "channel not authorized" messages I get for no apparent reason (which usually require me to reboot the unit to get the channels back)?

    All my content on FiOS is DD and the audio only drops out around 20% of the time between transisitioning to full screen and back with the previous software. I haven't checked it with the new software yet.My TiVos got the update yesterday and had pending restart. But I never looked this morning to make sure they were installed last night.

    Do you happen to have a Cisco/Scientific Atlanta cablecard? If so that's an issue with the cablecard firmware. Comcast has been rolling out a firmware update to their customers that fixes that issue, I would imagine other cable providers who also use this brand of cablecard are rolling out this same firmware update since it was a known issue that was addressed in the Cisco firmware release notes.

    Any changes you've noticed on the Mini since receiving this update?

    I wouldn't read too much into it. There may be nothing specific to Mini. The Mini just follows the same software track as the other series 4 devices. Netflix on the Mini would be nice to have ...

    I got the update on my P4 (did not check my XL4 yet) and can not say that I noticed anything except having to redo my SSPS88S feature!
