    No...4 is the meaning of life. 42 is and has almost always been the meaning of life, the universe, and everything. RIP DA, you were taken from us way too soon!

    42 is the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything. Unfortunately the computation which revealed that answer did not also reveal the question :D.

    So it looks as though the Premieres will get the same Netflix player which is now on the Roamios (and Roku 3s, Xbox 360s, PS3s and PS4s among other things). The player features Profiles and the Kids UI; it runs very smoothly on Roamio and someone hacked a Premiere after a recent update added the Opera platform to it to make it run the new Netflix player and reports that it its only a little less responsive. EDIT: I was wrong about that--it was moyekj, who report here that he got the HTML5/Webkit version of the Netflix UI which came with Roamio (also with Profiles and the Kids UI) to run on his Premiere and that it was markedly slower than on Roamio. Indications are that this new one eschews the use of Webkit, replaced with a custom layout/rendering engine optimized for their UI, which ought to run more smoothly on slower platforms.

    My PS3 gets profiles but my Roamio still doesn't. I haven't discovered anything that indicates that this update will add (return) profiles to the Roamio. It would be a curious development if the Premiere got profiles but not the Roamio. My Blu-Ray players still use an older Netflix UI (with Grey bars), still get profiles and the ability to "restart from the beginning". And I don't have to deal with random Netflix reboots .....which are still an obnoxious reality with the Roamio Netflix UI.

    But one can always hope.

    You're right--Roamio is the only one of the four devices I have with that UI which doesn't have profile support, for reasons unknown (Roku 3, PS3 and Xbox 360 being the others). I'd forgotten that.

    Nothing yet but as in the past I would expect TiVoMargaret to post a thread with changes once it starts to roll out.

    Is that yes to the software update or to the C133 problem, I had the C133 problem on and off last night in CT, I wonder if the people that service the TiVo servers have been pulled off to help with the servers for the ACA ? :D

    No it just means when you go to your Specialist now and they try to do an MRI, EKG, ECG, CAT Scan, X-Ray, etc on you they won't be able to get the machine to tune properly! :/

    I got it on my Roamio basic. Just bug fixes, right? I don't see anything obviously new; Netflix still doesn't have profiles. (If and when they add them back it's probably not going to take a firmware update).

    My Roamio connected at 5pm automatically and nothing. At 11pm, I forced a call, just for giggles, and sure enough, it is now "pending restart".
