    My overnight restart went fine and I had the update this morning. Good stuff so far! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the new ToDo List!

    Based on this quote from Margret:

    I think it's a valid conclusion.

    Well my tivo now has a list of over 200 non grouped recordings all missing most of the program information.

    Currenly trying to delete a few and re-push to see if new pushes can be grouped. Even if that works, this is going to be a LONG rework to fix Tivo's very obvious bug.

    Why would they remove so much information for all these recordings for the update? Database changes fine, but you have to update ALL the data not just parts of it and leave hundreds of useless recordings in a MySHows list.

    MAJOR FAIL tivo.

    As I was greeted by the THX splash screen, this morning; I assume my XL4 received the .2 update today(?)
    I have not experienced any of the aforementioned problems/bugs(?) as of now.

    Having said that, this XL4 TiVo is used at its most basic function. Record and transfer non copy protected material to the S3 on the network. (don't ask... simply put logistics.)

    In the previous version, initiating a recording would initiate the old "Please Wait" popup while it was setting the recording.

    So I think they've improved this, but I'd imagine making it completely fluid is something they'll do in a future update.

    I like the new screens very much, but I noticed something that I don't believe has been mentioned.

    When I look down the todo list starting on November4 (the day the clocks change) all shows are listed 1 hour later then they will really be on. The times are correct when I select the entry and display the information. I didn't notice it at first, but finally realized that it was showing the Daily Show recording at 12:00AM and Colbert at 12:30AM and both were listed on the next day because of this.

    Has anyone else noticed this? I hope that when the clocks do change that all these shows will be recorded correctly.

    After some more searching I did find where it has been mentioned. I haven't found anywhere where it has been discussed or whether it will be a problem come November 4. I did send a note to TivoMarget in case she didn't see the problem mentioned in 1 or 2 posts mixed in with 5 pages of discussion of the grouping issues.

    Search the forums. TiVos have been recording in GMT+0 since the beginning of time so daylight savings time changes will not affect season pass recordings.

    Yeah, it's pretty clearly just a problem with the way the To Do List is generated, since the correct times are on the individual entries.

    The To Do List just doesn't take the time change this Sunday into account. Worst-case scenario, it should fix itself on Sunday, with probably a patch in the next minor update so it doesn't happen again in the Spring.

    I cut power twice during the preparing stage. All worked fine.

    The mini guide no longer comes up when playing back recorded shows by pressing Select :(

    That's a GOOD thing IMO. It means you can enter SPS backdoor codes normally without an extra select messing things up. Note that during Live TV the Mini Guide still works and that's where it makes a lot more sense to have it anyway. You can still bring up the full guide in playback mode anyway.

    I use the mini guide ALL THE TIME while watching recordings to set other stuff.

    The grey color on Season Passes with no upcoming recordings is barely visible too. It's indistinguishable from the others.

    The contrast is not great but I can certainly tell the difference on both my TVs. That is probably more a function of TV calibration/display settings.

    I can't believe they still didn't add the "Sort by Original Air Date" option to the NPL... :thumbsdown:

    The issue I have with this feature is so much stuff seems to be missing the OAD info that I'd only have a couple things actually sorted. I like the idea though.
