    riddick21: I assume that you got the update yourself? If so, can you please take the time to answer the questions that Globular mentioned, if you can?

    In other words, did it just say "ESATA has now been enabled," or did it give instructions and information about where to get (and what) drives?

    That is a big improvement to me!

    Now they just need to get the Unbox content in widescreen, and HD... :)

    Does anyone know if the "Video Lag On 30 Second Skip and Instant Replay" has been addressed? That would really make my day (and most of my evenings watching TV!). :)

    ...and is this a typical TiVo test (pre)release, or is it generally available? Is there a priority list? etc.

    30 second skip seems to be snappy again.

    The exact wording on the eSATA message is:

    "This update includes official TiVo support for expandable storage solutions from TiVo partners. Adding more recording time to your DVR is as simple as plugging in a verified eSATA drive. Please visit www.tivo.com/expand for more information."

    The refered to URL is not active yet. I have no idea what "verified eSATA" drive means or what that means for folk already using the backdoor.

    I have gotten the update. My S3 is still happy with my 500G Seagate drive. Reference to this drive now shows under system information.

    That's good. Now where's the sign-up page so we can opt-out of all future TiVo updates?

    Sometimes I envy S1 owners.

    I certainly hope that the pixelation/macroblocking ( and now fast-forwarding video ) related to SA cablecards is also fixed...

    Can anyone verify if the "all video and backgrounds" vanishes bug has been fixed with 9.2? What i am referring to is the dreaded black screen where all you get is the TiVo menus, no video on cable channels and no playback on now playing list. Only way to rectify is a reboot.

    I am not sure if that is what people are referring to when they say the menu bug is fixed.

    Thanks

    has anybody with 9.2 encountered stuttering previously, if so does 9.2 fix this issue?

    Can anyone confirm if they fixed the lockup that occurs when a manual recording is "selected" in the Season Pass manager? This might only apply to a unit without CableCARDs.

    Is there a Priority Page set up for 9.2? I have 9.1, but I have yet to be put on the 'guest list'..... Additionally, I have connected a few times, but it has to be downloaded/installed.

    Since you HDers like to hog these threads ;)... I gotta ask, is this only released for HD systems or has it shown up on some S2s as well?

    Fantastic! Anyone with a S3 have 9.2 yet?

    Edit: Just forced a connection and didn't get it.... sigh. 9.1 is excruciating.

    Good to hear. I still can't fathom why they didn't pop in here last week and say, we know, we're working on it, it will be out asap.

    Now I can turn back on suggestions :)

    It said something about certain drives being supported officially by tivo but didnt give a list. I assume tivo will come out with a branded drive soon. I have gotten a chance to play with this update yet but hopefully it fixed the enormous amount of pixelation I have been getting lately.
