    I got my update during the day yesterday so when I got home I checked my Network Status and saw the Restart Pending message.

    Being impatient, I wanted to soft reboot my Tivo PremierXL immediately, but from the HD Gui I could only find Standby. If I flip back to the SD UI, I know exactly where to find the restart TiVo (with 3 thumbs down confirmation).

    In the end I pulled the plug on my TiVo and naturally after several minutes of rebooting, I got the Blue Screen of External Drive Death. So I pulled the plugs on both, started the external drive and then the TiVo and hoped and prayed that they will come up paired - which they did.

    Can you restart the TiVo from within HD UI? And if so, where is it?

    Not sure why they moved it. I didn't know where it was for the longest time either, until someone here pointed it out to me.

    I hope they get this fixed so we can get it before the end of tomorrow. I doubt it would be sent out over the weekend.

    Yes, but I've unplugged it. TiVo support says "the update is locked on my machine, and they can remotely unlock it in 24-48 hours". I can't see how that can happen since it keeps rebooting before it gets up all the way.

    I just got the update. The HD wishlist screen is nice because it shows much more of the title before cutting off, and gives you a short description without having to select each entry.

    BUT...I think I found a bug. I don't see any way to set a wishlist to "HD only" unless you have it set to auto-record a wishlist.

    Previously, "HD" was a top-level category when selecting a category (e.g., HD: Movies: Drama). But now, there's no longer "HD" in the category listings.

    As far as I can tell, the only way to set a HD requirement is by turning "Auto Record" on. If you do, there's a "Get only in HD" flag you can set. If you set the flag to "YES", the wishlist will only show/record HD versions of the shows. BUT, if you then set auto-record to "NO", it does the complete opposite of what it should - it includes only the shows that AREN'T in HD.

    Wishlists that were created in the previous version of the software seem to still work correctly, but there doesn't seem to be a way to create a new "HD only" wishlist without setting it to auto record.

    One use-case scenario would be to try to answer: "What upcoming sports are in HD (without auto recording them)?" I'm pretty sure a bug makes it impossible to answer that with the current software. It wasn't previously.

    Showed up for me today. DIAL seems present but doesn't work (i.e. my Premiere shows up in my iPhone Netflix app but it just causes the Netflix app to load on the Tivo without loading the show I wanted).

    Just got it here. That was the fastest update I've ever had on a Tivo. When I hit the restart it installed in 14 minutes.

    Received the update on a stock XL4 and within 30 minutes of seeing the message my screen went black. Figured the cable went out. Came back hours later and still the same. Tried to watch a pre-recorded show from yesterday and it showed as all black as well. Tried my bedroom Tivo (S3) and that was working. Unplugged XL4 and everything is working fine now. It recorded some but not all of my shows. Weird.

    Still nothing for me and I signed up the moment Margaret first mentioned the priority page was available for this update.

    You might try and email her if you wanna go to the trouble. I sent her a message with my TSN and she flipped the switch and I had it like 5 minutes later.

    Got the update on my Premiere tonight and I can confirm that HTML5 apps now run on series 4 units with this release. Like the bug with the Roamio introduced with 20.3.7, however, an arbitrary web page doesn't automatically get focus when starting it up, so you can't use arrow keys to navigate, scroll, etc.

    I know someone already answered you, but it really bugs me how RESTART was moved to the Help menu - so I had to post - just to express my frustration at where RESTART is loacted :mad:

    What is with the icon of a Red Circle Slash now on copy protected shows when browsing a Remote DVR?
    Now you cannot tell the status of the recording, Blue, Green, Yellow, Yellow-Exclamation, also cannot see if it is still recording.

    It makes it look like you cannot even MRS-Stream the show, although you can, The regular icons were fine, this just looks wrong.

    Is anyone else seeing this awful change, Blue dot replaced by Red Circle Slash for copy protected recordings.

    With this update is the new HTML5 YouTube app supposed to look the same as on the Roamio? Mine still looks like the old YouTube app.

    Should I have "What to Watch Now", because I don't, but won't miss it.

    Looks like they fixed the DST bug in the ToDo list where shows after the time change would appear an hour off. Now all looks good on my box after Saturday.

    I don't seem to have a new YouTube app either. It looks exactly the same as the one I've had for months.

    I did notice that I no longer have to have the app open to play videos from my tablet on the Tivo. It will start the app automatically when I press play on my Kindle.

    The Netflix app on Tivo seems to work the same way as YouTube, but since it takes so long to load, the Netflix app on the Kindle times out before the Tivo app has finished loading.

    What to Watch Now" is on my Premiere. It's very slow to load though. I never use it in the iOS app so I don't expect I'll use it on the TiVo either.

    I saw a gigantic pause ad last night that took up around 1/4 of the screen. That was annoying. I guess TiVo decided the pause ads weren't big enough.
