    And yesterday it was right in the middle. Probably moved since the bottom now houses all of the show related data.

    Question from someone who's just gotten back into the Tivo waters.

    I tried to start a "Connect to Tivo Service Now" to bring in the update and got a message saying that service was temporarily unavailable because of a scheduled update at 2:00 AM.

    Anything I can do to bring down 20.2.1.1 now, or do I just need to learn a small modicum of patience?

    I disagree. Not petty at all. We have all the right to want the clock positioned as it originally was.


    I'm going to reserve judgement until I actually see how the clock looks on the top of screen, but I can already say that I don't like the idea of it being there. Although, I do appreciate the engineers efforts to address the clock issue.

    Margret - Excellent summation of the update. Thanks!

    I believe that message will come up if the update is already downloaded. The network page probably says "Pending Restart", so all that person should need to do is reboot to install the update.

    Margret:
    Thank you so much for posting here and a big thanks for summarizing the update 's features and likely upcoming update features. A little communication goes a long way, especially for longtime TiVo users like myself.

    Now who at Amazon do we have to pester to get them cracking on an updated TiVo app with streaming???:D

    One more huzzah for Margret for posting the 20.2.1.1 update information and to the engineering team for the special treats! Fact is, even if the updates and treats aren't what one is personally excited by, you gotta love the efforts.

    Thanks.

    I suspect that the redesigned guide screens are taking up that real estate now and was the reason it was moved in the first place. Based on feedback and a desire to provide added value the Devs at TiVo moved this "undocumented" and "unsupported" feature to a location that was more convenient for the user and just as important, available for the devs.

    I see no issue in asking the question, but at least acknowledge the attempt...

    Trying out the new netflix app now. Any info on controls? Back/left pauses it instead of going back to the main screen. Play pauses it instead of showing the current time. The info button doesn't do anything. Up works like back and takes you to app.

    The communication about the last couple of updates is fantastic. It makes the wait between the updates much better as you know what's coming down the pipe, and approximate time frames for deployment.

    Thanks for the release notes Margret!

    Here is what the clock looks like:

    I am slightly blind in my right eye so unless I look directly at the clock its out of my field of vision.

    This sounds very similar to how the Netflix app works on my AppleTV.

    In the HDUI go to My Video Providers and turn the netflix and youtube app's on and off. That got them working for me.

    Wow. This is great and the feedback and notes and engineers attention to the community is fantastic. Reminds me of DirecTVs CE program which has been a huge success and really helped them push their in house DVRs to where they are in a short time.

    YEs thanks. I rebooted one of my TiVos remotely from my HAVA HD. I'm getting into Netflix right now. The first time it didn't come up so I went into the video provider section and when I tried Netflix again it came up.

    Mine is now up with 20.2.1.1 applied.

    However, the NetFlix app wants me to sign in with my username and password... I don't have a slider/keyboard remote, just the peanut. How exactly can I input that?

    Or is this something I have to wait up to four hours for the signatures to exchange?

    Click select on the name/password field and an onscreen keyboard comes up

    Ah, thank you. For some reason that didn't work the first time.

    That this on-screen keyboard is different that the TiVo one for searching is jarring. I guess that's because this app runs through Flash(?) and is implemented by NetFlix.

    I got the update. Woo!

    My reaction:
    I like the more fully featured Netflix and Youtube apps - although they feel a bit sluggish. The UI is very different and takes time to get used to. Youtube quality is appears to be HD, although it would be nice if it told me what kind of quality stream I was viewing in the info panel.

    This is my first time using the HD UI (couldn't before due to lack of parental control), and it looks nice. Definitely slower though. I'll have to use it for a while and see how I like it.

    First thing I did was turn off the live TV and playback window in the top corner. Very annoying that it would not pause when hitting the TiVo button to go back to the menu. I'll also probably disable all recommendations above, hopefully that will improve the responsiveness of the UI.

    One odd thing... when I switched to the HD UI, the screen blacked out for about 10 seconds. Then the HD home screen appeared. Strange. (Not a TV issue, my TV switches modes fast)
