    If that were true no one would ever get an update. They restart at 2:00am unless you have a scheduled recording. If you do it reboots during the next open time slot. I stay up late and I've been in a lot of betas (weekly updates) so I've seen this happen a lot.

    Just forced a connection, and no update here either. Been on the list for a while (not sure exactly when I signed up though).

    It used to but that isn't the case this time. I was on the phone with tier 2 support last night for over an hour and he read me the email from the head engineer about this update. It's labeled a manual update, which means that after it downloads the update it will say "pending restart" until it is manually restarted. That's what he called it. I'm just repeating it. I know this was the cast last time as well since I had one Premiere that downloaded the 20.3.1 update and was stating "pending restart" which I didn't restart for two weeks until it ran out of guide data and I had no choice but to.

    I am EXTREMELY pleased that they FINALLY enabled Dynamic Tuner Allocation on the Premiere. Finally. Finally. Finally. Finally. Finally. I can't wait to get home from work today and test out live TV on my Mini with PLS that I bought in March that I do not use!

    If we could just get Android support, I can die in peace.

    Good luck to you :) Let's hope this time next month we'll see the out of home streaming come to the TiVo Stream so Premiere users can enjoy it too. Maybe this is when the Android app will be updated to support it...

    That seems like a strange change to me. Most users will never see the "pending restart" message unless they go looking for it. Maybe I am missing some new message TiVo has installed to reboot manually on TiVo Central (or somewhere similar)?

    I don't believe these are linked. Reports are that the update to OOH is weeks away, while Android support is seasons away.

    Any first hand experience with the new Youtube app's speed? Is it still as painfully slow as the current version?

    I agree with you there, it's not the best implementation but I'm guessing the engineers have their reasons. As far as I can tell there isn't any notice that a restart is pending aside from the Network Connection screen and System Info screen which as you've pointed out, a user would have to be watching out for.

    You know, I got an e-mail from TiVo last night about the OOH Streaming "Now Available". There was a picture of the Roamio and the Stream in it, and I honestly LAUGHED OUT LOUD when I saw that the picture of the Stream in the e-mail had a red text ballon overlaid of the picture that contained the caption "Coming Holidays 2013". You just have to laugh. Let's see how long that gets delayed...

    I think TiVo should give every Premiere subscriber a free TiVo Stream as an apology for any number of reasons that have caused us to be dissatisfied with our experience.

    I was excited thinking my premiere would finally have decent apps for hulu, Netflix, youtube etc. Netflix is especially embarrassing crashing, CC stuck on screen, slow interface etc. I think I’m going to have to finally throw in the towel and buy a roku 3. =(

    They could use the "Messages" area for something that is actually helpful...
