    "This may take up to an hour, possibly longer."

    English, as spoken by lawyers. :D

    If the box can't handle loss of power during an update, then it's improperly designed.

    I should have checked earlier. I have a pending restarts but had been watching news and playing Xbox Live all day. My power had gone out for an hour but since all my electronic devices are on a UPS it never affected me.

    I like all the new features but my auto-transfer (push) folder, that resides on my Desktop, is messed up.

    The movies do not show up in one folder, when viewing from the Premiere and Premiere Elite. Also, all of the movie Titles are gone. 'Folders" are enabled and show up on everything but my Auto-Transfer folders.

    I'm going to create another folder in the Tivo Desktop, transfer movies to it and see if they "Group"

    It took my first Elite 45 minutes for the update to finish.

    How do I do this? I'm using the standalone .exe pytivo and push all my videos to my TiVo. This is so frustrating. I just finished transferring over a bunch of series. :mad:

    I believe that it has been reported that this is only for existing content on your TiVo, shows you move from now on should present in folders properly.

    Looks like TiVo made some pretty significant database changes on the back end - this is just a little artifact from those changes.

    Try it and let us know if it works for you...

    I knew that gut feeling of not deleting those series from my PC after transferring them would pay off. Just didn't expect it to be this soon. I was going to give my DVDs and Blurays to family, but now I may just put them in storage.

    Any idea if a series' picture can be displayed on the TiVo now? Also, has the episode order changed at all? I recall that after the last major update, unless you manually changed the file dates, your episodes would be out of order after the transfer.

    I think that conclusion exceeds the evidence. All I'm seeing is that some of the group data got deleted.

    I don't have any push-created folders on my TiVo right now, but my oldest series (regular recordings, but possibly transferred from another TiVo; I don't remember) got ungrouped. Other groups stayed.

    Any time there is a "preparing update" phase in a software update, there is some kind of database change. Whether it's "significant" or not is up to debate.

    Me thinks we'll be waiting a while before Netflix gets any changes.

    Same here. All pytivo pushes are no longer in groups. I tried to create a new group without success using the same method that worked before the update.

    If I push exact same video twice it doesn't group without seriesId set in metadata file, but it does group when seriesId is set in metadata file, which is consistent with previous behavior.

    I watched three episodes of Nikita on Netflix from an Elite last night. It did great. The only issue it had was when it blanks out for a second or two when it switches to 1080P24. But once it does it continues to stream for the entire episode. I definitely prefer to use my TiVos for Netflix over my dozen other Netflix devices because of the Native resolution output.

    I love what it can do now, but now I find that if I record a single show from the guide, the screen blanks out for just a split second and then refreshes to show a check mark next to the show. I remember it was instantaneous before the update.
