    One thing I've noticed is there used to be a glitch with the 30-second skip, where if you skipped repeatedly and quickly, eventually the screen would freeze on one image while you kept skipping, and you'd have to wait a sec for it to unfreeze and catch up, and then skip a little more slowly. Now, with admittedly very limited experience, it seems you can skip freely.

    I emailed Margret yesterday, and got it this morning.

    I seem to remember many people having problems with the priority list not taking their numbers, but that was after I had mine on the list. I wonder if the people who were on the list before that got "lost."

    So I got the update but I didn't get the "what to watch now" feature. What should I do to rectify the situation? also did they update the netflix app cause it's still the old version?

    I received the update a few days ago. First noticed it when I was using my mini. Saw the "what to watch now" and three new TiVo videos in my list. Yesterday was the first time I actually looked at my Premiere. There was a message waiting for me indicating the Fall update had been applied but the Premiere DOESN'T have the "what to watch now" item??? Strange.

    Correction in my case -- I see those red circles when remotely viewing my Premiere on my HD.

    No you can't, at least not between a Premiere and an HD. S3 and earlier units could only do MRV. Which actually copies the show to the other TiVo. The reason those shows have a red circle is because the are protected and can not be copied. However Premiere units support streaming, called MRS, and it works with any show regardless of the protected state. So that red slash icon only applies to MRV which is not really used much any more in households that have multiple Premiere/Roamio/Mini units.

    In previous versions of the HDUI the icons next to shows did not look any different then they did if you were using the TiVo directly. The only indication that a show couldn't be copied via MRV was a red slash icon on the right under the description and a lack of a Transfer option in the show's menu.

    Dan, I corrected my post before you posted this. I meant MRV...not MRS...

    Really liking:

    HD Wishlist menu - MUCH faster than the old SD menu. Took forever (40+ seconds) to populate my 33 lists. Now it's just a couple of seconds before I can start browsing the list. And no, only a few are set to auto-record.

    Group delete - Yea! They finally fixed the group delete issue. Now when the last item in a group is played, it drops back to My Shows and the preview window reverts to live TV so you can delete the group with Clear/Select. I use this a lot to delete YouTube groups (trailers, users, etc.) after viewing the group.

    Group play info - It used to show playing 2 of 5, etc. in a bubble floating above the info box, now it's at the bottom of the info box. Just text on black background, no bubble.

    Noticed:

    Manufacture Brand - Used to just say Tivo, now says Tivo Customer Support. Roamio's have the same info.

    Tivo Service Level - changed. Used to be xxx0xx, now it's xxx7xx. Might change every time there's an update, this is just the 1st time I noticed.

    Recording Capacity - Reduced from 318 hrs to 316 hrs. But if I ever get in a situation where I wish I had those 2 hours, I'd better start watching shows!


    Edit: I just signed up for the priority list on Sunday the 20th. Got the update the night of the 30th. Not forced, just noticed it the next morning. So I don't know what the priority order is.

    That's just a guess anyway. They may have just changed the guess slightly and that's why that's different. Digital channels are recorded in their pure digital format, so the amount of space required for an hour of content can vary wildly from show to show and network to network. It all depends on the settings the broadcaster uses to encode the video. I calculated it once and TiVo uses an estimate based on 15Mbps. Channel can actually be as high as 20Mbps and as low as 12Mbps for HD. So they're just guessing based on an average. If you were to actually fill your TiVo to the brim you could potentially be +/- 50 hours compared to that estimate.

    Browsing from my Tivo HD to shows on my XL4 there has been no change. The only items that have the red slash are web videos I've put in my XL4 via Tivo Desktop (they always do). I do not have any Premium channels with my cable service.

    I did notice I do not have any green or blue dots, but I do have yellow and yellow exclamation and red for currently recording. But I think it has always been that way.

    Also, browsing the other direction(XL4 to THD), everything has yellow exclamation except currently recording (red loop). Even a green and a blue on the THD show yellow exclamation on the XL4 browser.

    I noticed on some screen shots in the Roamio forum that capacity for 2TB HDs was 316 hrs, not 318 as the THD and XL4 have always shown until this update. But since it's a loss of 0.6% capacity, it's a non issue.

    It is definitely noticeably more a local ff/rw experience from the mini now, it looks as if we're getting close to double the framerate while ffwding.

    Also noticed recently delted folder populating much quicker.

    Also not seeing 'WtWN'.

    I emailed margret yesterday and got the update last night.
    nice to be able to watch some live football on my mini now.

    If you want it soon you can still sign up. I signed up a few days ago and got the updates the next day on my Premiere & Elite.

    I would guess within the next week or so. You can still add yourself to the Priority list. If you don't see it within a couple of days after that, the OP of this thread has been tweeting for people with issues the email their TSN to her and get on the list. She's always very helpful with Tivo users.

    Still have not gotten either of my Premiere's updated. Tried re-adding to priority list, but was already on it. Then I sent an email to Margret. We'll see if that helps.
