    I am hoping the HD My shows for networked DVR's will work for my PyTiVo shares as well... I have a lot of stuff in my media library and would really love to see that interface improved.

    I actually like the discovery bar, I just wish they had better pre-caching so it was ready to load when I bring it up.

    I would love it if they would send an e-mail out about the update so we had an idea of when to expect it!

    Why not just release the update, and have a message on the TiVo stating what is new?

    I'd like to see what the To Do screenshot looked like before the recordings had started. Would the X have been there prior to 8:00 pm?

    exactly...no need to send an email out saying what features are coming. When the box gets updated, you have a message on the TiVo telling you about the upgrade.

    In another tweet, Margaret indicated that MoCa is/will be supported.

    MoCa support has been around since the Elite/XL4 launched. They come with MoCa. She is just saying it counts as wired with MoCa. I assume it has always been the case with the Stream, but maybe I am wrong.

    The series 2 dual tuners got a change of software so that they no longer had the time slip feature when they no longer had a subscription. I think this took place earlier this year or last year. It was actually a downgrade rather than a update, so maybe saying older boxes aren't getting updates is correct.

    I had not heard that. I know this is true for the Premieres.

    Do you have a S2DT that you witnessed this, or could you be mistaken?

    I buy and sell a lot of Tivos, so I was interested to test to see if a S2DT would not have the time slip after the update. And sure enough, when I allowed a unsubscribed S2DT to connect to the 'mother ship' it updated the software so it would no longer do the time slip. Before they could still be used for time slip even though they showed 'closed' on the system info screen.
    This has made the older software S2DT Tivo worth a little more than the latest software S2DT ones that are now only parts boxes because of the update. Some people use unsubbed Tivos for security or sports manual recording or time shifting. I am actually surprised that Tivo didn't do this software change earlier, but they probably didn't because Tivos are rarely used in this way. Especially because it is technically against the Tivo agreement.
    I haven't checked to see if the single tuner Series 2 have this update.
    I am surprised that more people don't use Tivos for security camera recorders, as their quality is much better than the commercial recorders. Course they only record one channel, but the cheapness of old Tivos are such that you could have a pile of them recording for a fraction of the price of a commercial version. Those commercial version recorders quality is so terrible. You see it all the time when some guy robs a bank and the quality is so bad a mother couldn't even recognize her own son.

    That's just the bank being cheap and getting lower quality equipment. There are plenty of them that give you high quality. You just have to pay for it.

    You are probably in the minority. Or at least a small majority.

    Indeed, that would improve it greatly. But the BEST IMPROVEMENT EVER to it would be to allow the user the option to TURN IT OFF.

    * More screen space
    * Less distraction and annoyance
    * Less CPU and network being sucked away- could improve other rendering
    * No more accidentally ending up there when navigating and being STUCK for several seconds

    But this will never happen.
