    So here is what I've seen so far:

    1) HuluPlus loaded very quickly there is network bug identifier displaying the channel PBS Kids in the bottom right corner of the screen as I'm playing SuperWhy! Never seen that before.

    2) Loaded KmTTG and pushed webtab to www.starfall.com
    Webpage rendered quickly with no navigation-- preloaded to a flash section.
    Was informed by page that flash player was missing.
    Reason (Opera SDK not activated yet possibly)

    3) Netflix loaded quickly to menu, but have not tried to load a video yet. Waiting my turn daughter jumped onto tv to claim ownership. Smart for 2yrs old. Same interface no change yet.

    4) Tivo Launchpad loads quickly, hit Flingo and launched my que from Flingo Desktop.. Playing Winnie the Pooh, recorded from Tivo but at the time, captured by USBmyTV card...mp4 format streaming from PC. =) Still no Fwrd/Rew =(

    Still have not tested Youtube on this release..

    This is the store that is suppose to be active

    Apps have not changed. As Margret mentioned above the 20.3.8 update added "support for new apps (some of which may start appearing next week)." So the new Netflix app may show up next week or the week after (Dec 23rd).

    It's nice that TiVo can update the applications independently of the system software and w/o a reboot. Flash player and HD menu software are now dated November 6th and 5th.

    Signed up on the priority list last week and still no update love, even after emailing Margret my TSN yesterday. Guess I'll just need to wait. Hopefully I get it by the time the masses get it.

    Mine finally showed up after midnight (previous check was 8:00pm).

    I got all my boxes update before the snow/ice storm today, just in case we lose power, I don't want it trying to do an upgrade.

    This, on Roamio. The old HTML5 one looks much the same as the Flash one with some added features.

    Not the same as the Roamio one is it? That one does not use Webkit, but a custom layout/rendering engine optimized to their application.

    Similar issue here, although for me the Guide seems to lose its place every half hour on the half hour, probably due to refreshing with most recent data.

    It's visibly the same interface? Interesting. I'd have thought that it might require a firmware update.

    In order to see the new Netflix you have to launch it from the beta KMTTG as described above. In the section of remote, click the dropbox that says NETFLIX HTML. No this is a complete re-write there is a separate section for KIDS and then the General. It's flashy and quick. I did not see a prompt to choose profile so it's using the account profile. I watched it prebuffer the video of Superwhy before launched so it's running smooth. Using the beta I will try some other things to see how far I can take it. It seems this version has opened navigation to the browser.:cool:

    This re-write reminds me of HuluPlus.

    Enhanced Functions: Hit ZOOM from here you can search, pull account information, Exit KIDS , Exit Netflix.

    Instead of the traditional REW/FWRD push UP and a mini window with pictures similar to what you get from Streambaby move the cursor left to right to increase-decrease length of video. Once you find where to start just hit SELECT.

    The one thing this version lacks is the ability of "Start Over".. I thought if I hit info on the video of selection it would give me choices. Not that I see anyone figure where this ability went?

    Here is the tool I'm using that brought me where I am now.
    ==================================================
    Opera SDK 4 is using this --> http://www.opera.com/docs/specs/presto2.12/

    These are all the technical specs of what this bad boy can do. The presto 2.12 is the latest rendering engine

    Sent this command from KMTTG web
    opera:about
    Here it will identify LINUX kernel, Tivo version and the subdirectories Opera is installed in
    including the plugins and other interesting data that has been hidden from us.

    Replace your current kmttg.jar with beta version in this zip file:
    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0S...it?usp=sharing
    Then run kmttg and from Remote tab, Remote sub-tab press the "HME Jump" button with "Netflix (html)" as the selection to launch it.
    (This also should work to run html version of Netflix on series 4 units).

    Roamio shipped with a version of this UI, and changed to this at some point middle of last month. In Netflix's technical blog post they say:
    That "new rendering engine" is a replacement for Webkit, which I thought would be hard coded, though apparently not, if it can run on the Opera SDK platform. What do I know :rolleyes:? I have no background in web tech.
    It briefly had profile support which was yanked for unexplained reasons. Everything else I have with that UI (Roku 3, PS3, Xbox 360) has profile support and "Profiles" is present on the line with Search (magnifier), Kids, Tools (cog) and Exit (profiles is represented by the icon of the currently selected one). When this UI first showed up it had profiles for about a day.

    You no longer need the beta version of KMTTG, the new version v1p0k release has been updated to support launching the HTML5 Netflix.

    Both of my boxes were updated yesterday (Thanks Margret!!).

    So far, it is very early on, the "re-tuning" channel seems to be working. I tested it this morning and a couple of channels were black but I waited a few seconds. They did finally tune!! It was a second or so after the channel banner disappeared but they did tune. Before it didn't matter how long I waited they would just be black. I of course just jinsked my self.....:p

    I can't say for sure that this is related, but since I received this update Friday night, I can no longer transfer recordings between my Premiere and my Series3 HDTiVo. I have tried restarting both, renaming them, turning Video Sharing off and on, and nothing works. The S3 TiVo tells me that the S4 has no recordings (although it does), and the Premier tells me that the S3 "My Shows could not be displayed because of a network problem." There is no network problem that I can detect. Both units can connect to the TiVo server and get updates.

    I had zero issues transferring shows between these two units for over a year before this update. What did you do, TiVo????

    If you haven't done so already, try disconnecting both boxes from the network connection (i.e., ethernet cable or wireless adapter) for about 30 seconds, then reconnect. If it is a network glitch, this "soft reset" could clear it up.

    That's weird my version of KMTTG just showed regular Netflix from the dropbox until I replaced it with beta. Will check into that update you mentioned. I confused my family, they launched Netflix this morning and said that's not what daddy was using last night where did it go? This is the yucky version.

    Of course the new version supports it. Just download from SourceForge and replaced the old directory. Good to go. Now we wait for these new apps to appear.

    I just observed a strange behavior with 20.3 8. I record all NFL Football games, with 1 hour padding. In the past, the TiVo would allocate 2 tuners for the 1:00 games, and a 3rd tuner for the 4:25 game. 3 tuners would record till 5:00, then just the late game. Today, only 2 tuners were allocated and recording from 4:25 till 5:00 and 1 tuner from 5:00 on. My Shows only showed the two 1:00 games. At 5:25, still 1 tuner allocated, but My Shows now had all three games, with the 4:25 game now 1 hour in progress. FOX had the 1:00 and 4:25 game. It seems that 20.3.8 figured out it didn't need to allocate another tuner to record the same channel.

    The up side is smarter tuner allocation will give the user more recording options. The down side is if you want to watch the 2nd game (or show) you have to wait until the first one finishes before it will show up in My Shows (you can still watch it live). I will add that they are recorded from a Wishlist, not individual Season Passes. This is very confusing.

    Also, the black channels are still there. No amount of time will acquire them.
