    Hey All....

    Just noticed the priority list is back for the coming fall update.

    www.tivo.com/priority

    Figure I start a post where all the guesses and rumors can be in one place !

    Those are probably some of the more noticeable changes. We also know there are some code updates for the Stream and to prepare for the Mini.

    Tivo recently announced a DLNA initiative, so it'll be interesting to see if that is incorporated yet, or still down the road. The press release said, "The [DLNA] solution will ship in Q4 2012."

    Spring update priority signup started on 4/4. Update rolled out 5/10. If they follow the same schedule this time plan on 4-5 weeks.

    It's unlike Tivo to release anything after Thanksgiving, so I strongly suspect this will be coming pretty soon for priority signups and the phased rollout will be completed by then.

    Amazing - managed to catch a 1st day "sign-up"! Great!

    I don't get here frequently. My TiVo's just seem to do what I expected of them when I bought them - record and I watch at "my" convenience!!

    Do they still do these updates on the older models boxes? I assume no, and we're just getting guide data. Which is OK, really.

    This update will be for Premiere boxes. Older units haven't gotten any new updates is a couple years, sadly.

    You know, I cant even complain about it. They work fine, and how much can you really expect out of old tech?

    Within 3 days, what is the typical length? Within a day? I've never done a "priority" list before, so I'm ignorant on the ordeal. Also, I've never seen the authorizations ordeal either.

    Usually within the first 2 days. It depends on 3 things: What time the box connects to the mothership, what time your box is officially provisioned to download the update, and what time the Tivo reboots to actually install the update.

    For example -- The tivo automatically calls the mothership once a day. If it connects at 12 noon but isn't provisioned by the Tivo servers to get the software until 5pm later that day, then it missed its chance that day unless you manually force another connection after 5pm. Otherwise it will wait until the following day to download the software. (btw, I'm just using these made up times as an example.)

    Then, once it's downloaded, by default the unit will reboot typically at 2am that night to install the software... unless you force a reboot sooner. So mathematically, that's where they come up with the 3 days. (1-2 days to download, then waiting until 2am to reboot and install.)

    If you sign up on the priority list, the fastest way to get it is to force a connection once it's officially available (the folks here on the boards are very fast to announce it), then force a reboot once you get a "pending restart" message on the System Information or Settings > Network screen. This way you'll likely have it in a matter of hours of release.

    Otherwise, if you just let the box do it on its own without forcing connections or reboots, it'll have it running anytime within those 3 days.

    (* I'll go ahead and point out now that forcing connections will not speed up delivery of the software if your box is not yet provisioned to receive it. Most priority list signups are provisioned on the first day, but it's not a guarantee.)

    Back in the day, the update would come out fairly soon after the priorty page went live.
