    I'm actually hoping I don't download the update today. Updating during the middle of a hurricane is just asking for trouble. The power could blink out during the update. Not sure why TiVo decided to release today.

    That's exactly what happened to me 15 minutes ago. Power went out during the download. Re-downloaded and restarting now.

    Exact same thing just happened to me 30 minutes into the install. Argh. Reinstalling now.

    Interesting experience, I connected my Elite and waited until the download had completed and then went to my XL and connected. The XL actually did the download and progressed through the install passing the progress of the Elite. Pending restart was first visible on the XL. Now both are in the "Preparing the update" aspect of the update after a "restart"!

    How long for the preparing and back to "live TV"?

    Depending on the size of the actual update it could be up to an hour. I think the last update took a good amount of time. Let us know how long it takes for you.

    I'd have to agree with the 45 minutes after the "one hour warning" screen. My XL did actually accomplish the entire operation faster than my Elite. I've not checked anything out yet.

    I'm still questioning my "intelligence" of attempting this with Sandy approaching and we've had very substantial winds this PM.

    Everything working except not getting HD listings from a networked Premiere. Probably have to update that one also.


    *Update - Now it's working. Nice

    My Premiere connected at 4:30 PM EDT and downloaded the update. I figured it was better to do the install now then at 2 AM when the hurricane winds are forecast to be a lot stronger, so I did the install (not really having a choice). I'm now at the "preparing the update" screen. The Premiere is connected to a UPS so I have some leeway if the power goes out, but the person who decided it was a good idea to release the update today should be demoted, especially considering it takes so long to install.

    I'm guessing the box can recover if the power is cut during the preparing stage, but still...

    Edit: update finished. Right about 45 minutes as has been reported

    That is why your TiVo should be on a UPS, just like your computer is...

    Mine is...

    "Pending Restart," with a 3-hour recording gap coming up between the news and Castle. Yee-haw!

    Mine is on a UPS, but that doesn't help if the UPS battery drains before the update finishes. Fortunately this wasn't a problem in this case.

    All three of my units upgraded in just under and hour and are on the new software. Really enjoying the latest updates. I really like the ability to remotely play a whole group of shows like you can locally. Lots to explore, but so far I would say a huge update and lays the groundwork for the TiVo mini that I can't wait for either.
