    I've noticed that the navigational issues seem to have been fixed. I didn't have the other problems that folks were experiencing, so I can't tell you what else is fixed.

    There is another thread already going about eSATA being official now...

    Oooh... 9.2? I wonder what bugs they fixed... and which they added. ;)

    Could you elaborate? There are so many minor, little gotchas in 9.1 that I'm not sure exactly what you refer to as "navigational issues".

    Thanks!

    Menu navigation... popping out to the wrong location when navigating and altering the To Do List, Suggestions Folder, etc. All of that seems to be functioning properly now.

    I'll beat one of my favorite dead horses again. Why oh why doesn't TiVo tell us what is in a release? Instead of hundreds of posts from us blind users about what may or may not be different, just tell us. They can always put gazillions of disclaimers on the What's New page so as to prevent liability for those changes.

    If they really had a What's New page, and even had a list of bugs discovered as time goes by, wouldn't we be MORE inclined to have patience with them, rather than the rants & raves that always surface?

    prolly never happen, but it's still my .02

    Thanks! I was hoping that would be a simple, slipstream bug-fixin' release, and it looks like it is! :up: :up:

    I agree with you 100%, but the last time I said this in TCF I got flamed to a crisp for daring to suggest a company should be forthright with its customers.

    I've been here a WHILE and I agree with you 100%. TiVo's communication has gotten worse and worse over the years. A little forum post is all it would take "Fixes are coming soon." "Here's what's been fixed in 9.2:" etc etc.

    I'm in software development and our customers DEMAND those sorts of things before they upgrade. Even our POTENTIAL customers have demanded to see things like average bug resolution time, etc.

    It is quite interesting that when they first launched the TiVo HD that TiVoPony chimed in on the forum and told is that the fix was on the way for both 8.1.7 b and c, but once 9.1 dropped he hasnt bothered to tell anyone anything about impending updates or fixes. I agree they are starting to drop the ball, probably since they are using all manpower to handle the problems and trying to fix them :)

    Well, in general marketing people (which TivoPony is) are much happier about touting new feature updates than bugfixes.

    The last time I saw them comment on this, it was some nonsense about competitive disadvantage... even though the info couldn't possibly be of use to any competitors.

    Unfortunately, with corporations in general, the default policy on everything seems to be secrecy. Though that's not usually the case with release notes for software... but I guess that Tivo, oddly, doesn't see itself as being in the software business. :thumbsdown:

    Which is odd when you think about it, because most users are happier about bug fixes. :)

    OK, before the thread gets completely hijacked, what's the word on the eSATA support? Is it for any eSATA disk? What's the maximum size? etc. etc. Pony, inquiring minds want to know! I desperately need more storage.
