    Hi TiVo Premiere owners!

    Later today we will begin releasing the Fall Update (20.3.7.1a) to TiVo Premiere boxes.

    Here are some of the changes:
    - "What to Watch Now" available from TiVo Central
    - Press the C button in the Guide to filter by genre
    - Updated WishList screens in HD
    - Removed "Browse Web Videos" -- you can find web videos in Search, or use the "Web Video Hotlist", AOL.on, or YouTube apps
    - 4-tuner Premieres that feed TiVo Minis no longer need to "reserve" a tuner so the Minis can watch live TV
    - TiVo Minis can now remotely manage the To Do List and Season Pass Manager of TiVo Premieres
    - new (HTML5) YouTube app with DIAL support
    - advanced help for troubleshooting whole home network and box connectivity issues (Help > Whole Home > Streaming > Advanced Help)
    - fixed the freeze in the Signal Strength meter, where it would report the same signal level for all channels
    - fixed the issue where some boxes with Tuning Adapters stopped recording TiVo Suggestions
    - support for out-of-home streaming through a Roamio Plus/Pro in the home (and eventually TiVo Stream, when that update is released next month)

    I expect the update to be available after 4pm Pacific to anyone who was signed up on the priority list before midnight last night. If you signed up today, then your box will most likely update after 4pm tomorrow.

    Hopefully the no sound after fast forwarding through the live buffer issue has been corrected.

    Interesting. This implies then that HTML5 is indeed enabled in 20.3.7 software for series 4 units.

    Margaret,

    Are you telling us there is no update to NETFLIX!!!!

    Please clarify. Netflix app is "so wrong" and your tech support tells
    me personally there are aware of the issues.

    Again, please answer this!

    What's the deal Margret, why is there no Netflix update? For months we've been waiting for a fix for Netflix and now we're seeing this isn't so? This is not good. For the amount of time it's taken for a new update to be created, a fix for the Netflix app that TiVo broke in the last update should have been first on the list. Speaking of which, why is there no word on the truncated program description being fixed? What out of touch reality is TiVo in where they cannot fix simple problems that they created and instead introduce new hardware? I would be embarrassed to work for TiVo.

    I will say this much. If there is no Netflix update in this release then one of their Level 2 tech support guys flat out lied to me.

    It's that simple.

    Dumb Tivo newbie question... how do you sign up on the priority list? If you don't sign up when could you expect to get the update?

    The priority list is found here http://tivo.com/priority

    Go to Settings & Messages then Account & System Info then System Information then enter on the website the TiVo Service Number on the TV screen.

    They seem to be able to update the apps independent of the software. A few days ago the Netflix app on the Roamio suddenly had profile support, then a couple days later it disappeared. So they seem to be able to flip a switch at the head end and update the apps. So even if Netflix is not included in this update we might still get an update eventually.

    Unless what you described is exclusive to Roamio and Stream, Dan. Let's not forget that the visual aesthetics of the dark blue coloring and new fonts aren't coming to the Premiere yet (if ever) as well as the faster performance.

    Faster performance is impossible, that's a hardware issue. But both the Roamio and the Premiere are capable of running Adobe Air apps, which is what Netflix is, so there is no reason the new Netflix app shouldn't be capable of running on the Premiere. Unless it's just so miserably slow that it's completely unusable.

    TiVo has added several apps outside of a large scale update. Dan's comments are likely right on the money. It could simply be that Netflix themselves are not yet ready, Dave Zatz normally has some good insights on these sorts of things, and his article included updates to Netflix.

    Yet still no Netflix update available upon software rollout even though they've had several long months to figure it out.

    Anyone get the update yet? I've been trying since 7:00 EST and nothing. I singed up on the Priority page when they opened it up.

    How do you force an upgrade? Just connect to tivo service. Or is there another way to do it?
