    Hmmm...hadn't considered the Rhaposdy angle. They're part of Real Networks correct? I've never had much luck with their products...always buggy...kind of like v9.1. Let's hope it doesn't spread any further. ;)

    Could make you wonder if this was an accident and they were caught flat footed....

    Tivo came out with a fix, and very quickly I might add, isn't that what it counts at the end?

    What if Pony posted here before the fix was available, but can't quote any date on a fix, you think he would received any better reception? I'd imagine we get a lot of "I don't believe there is a fix until I see it" kind of comments. If I were Pony, I wouldn't want step in here one way or the other.

    Given what I know about software V&V process, I have to believe that these fixes have been in the pipleline for longer than a couple of weeks. They may have decided to break some of them off into a shorter-term release for customer sat issues, though.

    Here's hoping the silence is indicative of hard work and many hours trying to correct 9.1, thats forgivable because we don't have to wait xx months for a fix.
    If thats the case good job TiVo team.

    Thanks demon & carroca. I had never noticed my S2 showing that in four years, but I'm glad to know about it now. But I didn't look at that status screen much to begin with.

    Here's hoping 9.2 solves many of those problems out there. I really hope CableCARDS become more robust in future updates. Maybe by then I'll be interested in what Mediacom has on digital cable and upgrade my service for my TiVo HD.

    If a fix exists now, but my TiVo doesn't get it for another month, does it really matter to me?


    TiVo, fix my TiVo. I'm tired of rebooting my box.

    Ok, so someone's gotta ask. I just got 9.2 today, for all of the Tivo HD'ers that haven't yet added a drive with WinMFS...does this update allow Tivo HD owners to do the super easy Kickstart method of adding external storage like the Series 3 owners. Or better yet...gasp....has anyone with 9.2 tried just plugging in an external drive and praying to the Tivo gods that it's plug-n-play?

    I come to this forum to find information, and to find out about bugs and bug fixes. If Tivo is not aware of the issue, yeah, we want to talk about it until they get it, but they have a fix now, and is rolling it out, so what does this "I want my fix NOW" talk do us?

    Since not many have gotten the 9.2, and you have it, the better question is:

    Have you?

    Hello all.

    Yes, I'm swamped. Sorry, but hanging out on the forums, communicating with all of you just hasn't been possible as of late. Very busy times.

    TiVoJerry is out of the office at the moment (and actually, I just got back into the office). He'll be back soon.

    The 9.2 software is a Series3/TiVo HD only release, and just entered the 'test the waters' phase last night. It's going out to a small number of customers to measure the impact on the call centers. We do this with every release, it's part of the process leading to a wider, full scale rollout.

    It does offer official support for verified eSATA devices. As the tivo.com/expand page says...more on that later.

    There are other goodies in the release too, features and bug fixes alike. Nope, we do not provide release notes. Sorry if that bothers some, but trust that the average TiVo subscriber is not into the same level of detail as folks here on the forum. We do what we can, but detailed release notes are not on the horizon. Beat the horse, but don't beat the Pony. Thx.

    Don't expect to hear much out of us regarding this release for now...it's not released yet. It's just simmering...it'll be soup soon enough. ;)

    Thanks Pony! While you had to leave some questions unanswered, it's still nice to know Tivo's watching/listening.

    No no, and I can't...I have a Seagate 750 that's still in the box and waiting for confirmation. I'm hoping someone else has one that's open or from another system or that they're making or something. I don't want to open it until I know that it will work and that Tivo is not going to just allow their own proprietary "Tivo Drives". I'd bet money that they're coming, and most likely are the "exciting new product" that the external drive link on Tivo is talking about. If that is the case then I want to still be able to return the Seagate drive, because if I can't use it for Tivo I have no use for it.

    Someone could also PM Spike and see if he has gotten ahold of the new 9.2 and tested the kick start method for the TiVo HD? Or someone could help him obtain it as well ;)

    thanks tivo pony you are very kind being a public messenger for tivo on these message boards.
    I wanted to know if anybody else finds the language of verified device as odd? I know that tivo hard drives have been talked about for awhile but am i the only one worried that we will lose the opportunity to add stuff. I have a tivo hd but i would be worried about losing kick start 62 functionality with the 9.2 update. Thoughts?

    Thanks TivoPony. Since the 9.2 update is specific to S3/THD units then I would presume there will be no priority list and the rollout should happen fairly quickly once the floodgates are open (considering the S3/THD user base is much less than the S2 user base).

    So close,...
    Thanks Pony, anything simmering for us S2 users. My DT wish list and season passes took a beating with the 9.1 release and I would like to know if I can stop recreating them all or not. This is a huge tedous task that I can really do without.

    Dagnabbit -- I had a "pending restart" for my newest TiVo HD -- but it was from 8.1 to 9.1. :(
