    In the recent past, hasn't RCN received the latest updates after the retail general release?

    Edit: yes I see they are still behind the retail release, so I would assume based on the pattern the Retail units should get DTA before RCN.

    Agreed. I would guess a late August release to retail based on this revelation from Jason.

    No problem... Based on the lack of enthusiasm to my enthusiasm from the community I guess I should change the title of the thread... :confused:

    This is good news if TiVo can really get DTA rolled out in the coming weeks.

    Great news.

    Sam, lol, we are a fickle bunch, aren't we? DTA is already somewhat being taken for granted as "coming soon" while we're now distracted by the new shiny object called the Series 5.

    I see it as great news. This fall is turning out to be pretty big... what I'd consider to be Tivo's lineup of products finally running on all cylinders for the first time in a long time. DTA, powerful DVRs, possibly integrated stream, and maybe Android Stream support. It should be pretty cool.

    Yep, 6-tuners and DTA with integrated stream support would be outstanding!

    I keep reading DTA as digital tuning adapter so that might be why.

    I suppose that I interpreted the following statement, "That upgrade will have a lot of enhancements around MultiRoom and around the way a tuner is allocated for use with the Mini" to mean Dynamic Tuner Allocation... perhaps they've done something different and we won't have true DTA... who knows. Regardless, I'm pretty excited about the amount of new stuff we'll have to play with this fall.

    No, you're probably right, that does sound like what they're referring to.

    However, the problem is that this thread never spelled out what was being referred to by the initialism "DTA." For me, the first thing I think of when I hear DTA is Digital Transport Adapter, not Dynamic Tuner Allocation. That confusion about what DTA stands for (in this thread) could be why there isn't more interest.

    LoadStar is correct. I know DTA is talking about Dynamic Tuning Allocation, but it isn't the first thing that pops in my head when I read DTA.

    Just in time for the fall TV season! It will be much appreciated here, as we go from one to three TiVo Mini's, and 3 to 4 people as the fall season looms a month away!

    EDIT: Capitalization
