No, I have not gotten 9.4. I think it might be coincidental. but maybe 9.4 is more sensitive to odd brand drives? It did specifically say that Seagate Freeagent is known to cause problems (although I have not had any). I noticed earlier in the thread about Seagate external disks coming out designed for DVRs. Maybe TiVo has made a deal with Seagate and Seagate told them the Freeagent will not work on a DVR? It is most odd that they singled out the Seagate Freeagent.
