    Just connect to the service. When it checks your account status, it should automatically download the update, if you signed up on the priority list.

    Mine is installing now. Started download about 3:51PST, just changed to Pending Restart about 2 minutes ago, forced a reboot and now looking at the "Installing an update... This will take a few minutes" screen.

    My update is installing now. I signed up on the first day, if it matters.

    Screen says "Installing an Update...This will take a few minutes"
    It's been a bunch of minutes.

    Didn't it use to say "An hour or more"?

    Now it says an hour, possibly longer.

    I didn't sign up until about a week after the Priority page went live and I still got it today. I'm guessing there aren't that many people who signed up so they're all getting it today.

    I signed up a while ago and I'm not getting it, at least not this minute. So they must be staggering it even among we few, if only by minutes or hours.

    Mine hasn't shown up yet (just checked a few minutes ago).

    Altho if there is truly no Netflix update I don't know that I care.

    I'm checking it out now. This box is soooooooo aggravating to use, compared to my Roamio. I try not to use it too much.

    I sometimes wonder if my two-tuner is slower than most. I have one new unit, still in the box. Maybe for kicks I will try it, with no hard drive upgrade.

    Also, I now have a "Network and Phone" choice now, on my Tivo "Settings" menu???

    Please tell us what changes you all are seeing after the update. Is the program truncation fixed?

    Both YouTube and Netflx support DIAL, but I tried it with both apps and had trouble. The YouTube app restarted the first time. Then the video I played got stuck in a loop where it would play the first 10 seconds, then pause and restart. The Netflix app restarted the first time too, then when it came back up it had an error on screen which I could not dismiss with the remote. So I disconnected the iPad app from the TiVo and the TiVo rebooted. On the plus side I briefly played with the Netflix app directly on the TiVo and navigation seems faster then I remember. Start up time is still slow, but the app itself feels more usable. Although still not as fast as my Roamio.

    The main HDUI does not feel any faster. I don't really see anything in there other then what Margret listed. Also I do not see What To Watch Now, but maybe I need to force another call to get that?

    Edit: After more testing DIAL for Netflix does not work. It actually does the same thing as the app on my Samsung TV. You start a video and the app just reboots. Then the iPad app says "unable to play video on remote device". This works fine on my Roamio.

    Edit 2: After the box settled down a bit the HDUI actually does seem a bit faster then I remember. I haven't used the Premiere much since getting my Roamio, but compared to the little bit of navigation I did before getting the update it does seem slightly more responsive. Although maybe it was just in need of a reboot and that's why it seems faster. I'll reserve judgement on that for people who use their Premiere units more frequently.

    Edit 3: Forced two calls and still no What To Watch Now. They must need to flip a switch on their end for that.

    About 30 minutes which included the download.

    I would imagine things could be a little slower now that more people might be attempting to pull down the software.

    I was hoping that with the addition of DTA that a 2 tuner Premiere could now be used as a Mini host, but nope. :( With the Roamio you can borrow all of the tuners for a Mini except the one that's currently in the foreground, which means a 2 tuner Premiere could technically support a Mini now even with live TV. So the limitation is completely artificial now.

    Me too, I've done it a bunch of times. I guess they roll it out little by little, not really sure.

    Just checked my Wife's XL4. It made an automatic call at 3:51pm and it says pending restart. She's got a bunch of stuff recording tonight, so it'll have to reboot on it's own at 2:00am.

    Yeah according to TiVo tech support, the boxes don't restart on their own anymore because of too many complaints from customers who are interrupted while watching live television.
