    I just looked at this thread today and signed up now. I know I should be paying more attention to this but the last time I checked I saw Premieres were NOT getting the update and I was so depressed I just didn't bother to come back until I read it on Engadget. How long should it take and what should be the differences so I may tell when it occurs?

    The only way this makes any sense is if some lowly intern is assigned the task of taking the new entries that appear in the "priority" list and manually updating some other system. So when s/he missed 1000 of them, they were going to stay missed until someone checked his work. Of course, they missed many more than 1000 since so many have to send margret a special e-mail to get the update.

    If the systems were at all integrated it would seem possible to re-run the "flip the switch" program to update the "distribution" system from the "priority" list.

    Ehhh... The only problem is that people were not getting an update early - not that their units wouldn't get the update at all.

    I gather your ads are larger when you hit Pause during playback. That should be a clue.

    I'm still not bothered by the "larger" ads....they don't happen all the time, and, as a matter of fact, not much at all.

    At least during replay, I will get occasional occurrences of a quick repeat of material, i.e. a second or less will repeat itself during play. I will have to see if it is also happening while watching "live."

    This started when I got the update.

    I got the update last night. I had signed up for the priority list within a day of it being opened. I did NOT send anyone my TSN saying I didn't get it when the rest of you did.

    Enough time has passed for the general roll out to start happening.
    Maybe you just happened to be first on the gen pop list. :D

    Found a bug in the new software. I have a season pass for 'The Voice'. Since it now is live, I went into the ToDo List and selected an episode and modified it to end 5 minutes late. Instead of the item in the ToDo list simply extending its scheduled time, my Premiere XL4 created a NEW/Duplicate entry with no title that added the 5 minutes. This resulted in two copies of the show with one that looks normal that was not extended plus a second copy with no title that is 5 minutes longer.... Its 100% repeatable.

    yes, this has happened to me once, exactly as you described. the padded sp recording was listed below the unpadded recording in my shows with "rec:" before the title.

    The same thing happened to me, only it was for something that was airing later in the evening (which was going to be delayed because of a sports overrun).

    I don't have the update yet, but I saw that happen on my Roamio after the most recent Roamio update.

    i've tried connecting 3 or 4 times to the service, no go. Still stuck with 2.1.3 it seems. I'm on the priority list. Any other way to force a download and update?

    Best,

    What is the big deal? We'll get it when we get it. It's a matter of days or weeks, not years.
