    I'm assuming you are working overtime as we all have picked up on. Both my tuners are in use, so will force a connection again and see if I get it this time around. Looking forward to the changes coming. :D

    Took 20 minutes to reboot/install. I don't see any differences yet. Netflix looks the same. Guess we will have to wait till next week.

    I signed up on the priority list within a few hours of it going live. I just forced a connection and didn't get the software (unless the software is only a few MB). I double checked on the priority page and it said I already signed up.

    Still nothing this morning. Looks like I'm in the black hole as well.

    Last time I signed up after a few days and got it day 1. This time I signed up day 1 and didn't get it.
    I guess the lesson to learn is don't sign up for the priority list for the first few days it goes live.

    I entered my TSN in the priority list last night, and got the update. It's installing now.
    Any idea when we will get a list of what it contains?

    me too.

    Another priority page Fail ?

    I signed up my six boxes the first day.

    The page said I would be in the first batch.

    I just checked and the page tells me that I am already on the list.

    And nothing.....

    I emailed my TSNs in, since I jumped on the Priority Page signup, and nothing was updating. The last of all the Premieres I'm shipping out now have it.

    Those were some of the longest "this might take a few minutes", "preparing the update", and "installing an update" screens I've seen in years...

    At least I ship with new drives, and had a consistent wait for them to update. They did it in two stages of downloading and updating, both very long wait for each one (the download, the update, the download, the update).

    If I didn't know any better, I'd have considered a drive was bad, but they all took a long time. Once all done, everything ran nice and fast (menu navigation and such).

    No complaints here. I swapped some cable cards and Tuning Adapters around, and it took less than 20 minutes to get all my channels. :up:

    I hope the new owners like them...

    Thanks, TiVoMargret (and all your clones, doing so much work)! :) :up:

    You noticed that too, huh?

    That must be part of the items that will be switched on (updated) at a later time. :rolleyes:

    I think I got it? My quick clear code is off, usually indicating an update. But Netflix looks exactly the same.

    Hah, see she is human and even eats dinner. :)

    Even though I don't have a Premiere or Roamio (2 S3 OLEDs still), I appreciate having a TiVo representative around that's passionate about the company and product and posting information and updates for those of us here on the forum that feel the same way.

    Thank you!

    I just observed a strange behavior with 20.3 8. I record all NFL Football games, with 1 hour padding. In the past, the TiVo would allocate 2 tuners for the 1:00 games, and a 3rd tuner for the 4:25 game. 3 tuners would record till 5:00, then just the late game. Today, only 2 tuners were allocated and recording from 4:25 till 5:00 and 1 tuner from 5:00 on. My Shows only showed the two 1:00 games. At 5:25, still 1 tuner allocated, but My Shows now had all three games, with the 4:25 game now 1 hour in progress. FOX had the 1:00 and 4:25 game. It seems that 20.3.8 figured out it didn't need to allocate another tuner to record the same channel.

    The up side is smarter tuner allocation will give the user more recording options. The down side is if you want to watch the 2nd game (or show) you have to wait until the first one finishes before it will show up in My Shows (you can still watch it live). Also, History in the HDUI does not show any of the games, using option show (all). Recording History in the SDUI doesn't show them either. I will add that they are recorded from a Wishlist, not individual Season Passes. This is very confusing. Tuners get smarter, and logging gets dumber.

    I sure wish Margret would post those release notes.

    The same thing happened to me. I couldn't start watching the second game until the first stopped recording. Since I pad NFL games by 1 1/2 hours (in case of overtime) I had to wait an hour and a half before I could start the second game. Also there was about an hour in the middle of the game that I could not watch. Even though it looked like that hour was there on the progress bar (Green bar) it would just freeze and when I tried to fast forward it would just jump about an hour ahead. Couldn't rewind as the same thing would happen. Do not know if this was because of the new "using one tuner" deal.
