    No update for me, either. And I signed up for the priority list over a week ago. Just to confirm I was on the list, I tried re-entering my TSN and the page told me that box was already on the list.

    I'm a little bummed, but if not getting the update on the day it's released is the worst thing that happens to me this week, I think I'm going to be all right ...

    Yep this will definately be the deciding factor on whether or not I continue a relationship with Tivo. I dont see any major updates after this one for the Premiere. I could be wrong about that, but with the Roamio in full swing I just dont see Tivo sinking a lot of money into major updates for the Premiere. Maybe a little fix here and there, maybe not.

    That means you have the software and you just need to reboot the TiVo to have it install. You can force a restart now as long as you have a block of 30-40 minutes where it doesn't need to record anything. (Messages & Settings->Help->Reset TiVo->Reboot)

    The Priority list doesn't seem to be first come first served. I added my wife's TiVo like the day after it went live, but forgot about the Premiere in my office. I just added that one like a week or so ago. Both of them got the update first thing yesterday. (around 3:45pm)

    :(

    This is really disappointing. I'd have loved to use a Mini with my 2-tuner Premiere. I never, ever watch Live TV. :(

    I know. One of the reasons I checked was specifically for you. :)

    Thank you for the information. I do certainly appreciate that you'd think of me when checking/reporting such a thing.

    Nothing here yet. And I signed up the first or second day the priority list was announced.

    Well the C501 error when accessing Music & Photos to use Pandora is still not fixed! This after 3 updates, Fall 2012, Spring 2013 and now Fall 2013.

    For those not familiar with the error, when using the HD menus this error comes up and Music & Photos is not usable. If you switch to the SD menus, Music & Photos works great.

    I have called twice on this issue, latest was tonight after discovering the latest update did not correct the problem. Tech support tells me they are working on the issue but do not have a resolution yet. I told them it has been a known issue for over a year now and is extremely frustrating. They gave me two months credit for my grandfathered $6.95/month multi-room discount.

    When I received the email asking to do a quick survey, I gave the rep high marks but made sure to voice my frustration in the comments. :mad::mad::mad:

    Something fairly minor I noticed was fixed/improved in 20.3.7:
    All my HD channels are in 1000+ range (and I take all SD channels out of my lineup) and most have 6+ characters as callsign. 20.3.1 software would truncate characters such that channel # + name was mostly a bunch of garbled "...". 20.3.7 software fixed that such that nothing truncates anymore and I can see the full channel # + name from My Shows lists.

    With all the banter about the Netflix app, doesn't Netflix write and maintain it. I solved that issue already and bought a pair of Rokus. Best money spent, not only Netflix but Amazon Prime and a host of others that Tivo could never support. I'll skip the Mini for the garage and just get another Roku ...

    I don't use my Premiere and Elite much directly anymore since getting my Roamio, but before that I used Pandora almost every day on my series 4 units and never saw that C501 issue. Do you have TiVo Desktop installed/enabled by any chance? If so perhaps try shutting it off to see if that helps.

    Centerville,...

    I must admit. I was so frustrated with my two-tuner Premiere and my Elite, that I just knew the Roamio had to be better. Of course, seeing all the speculation about the new hardware/software, helped me along. The awesome Mini arrival/performance, also helped a lot.

    Reading some of the complaints on these forums, may have influenced me. Like when you buy a new car and then read online, about certain problems, then you actually start to "Look/Listen" for them. But, the truth of the matter for me is.......................

    The Roamio is so unbelievably better than the Premiere, even recording and playback, that if you purchase one, you may never use your Premiere again.

    Yes, the Roamio is a joy to use, compared to my Premiere. This is just my opinion, along with a few others here.

    I had high hopes, but it did not work. I stopped the TiVo Beacon Service and killed all the TiVo processes running on my PC.

    Was hoping it would help, but also that would make me even more frustrated with TiVo support if they still hadn't figured it out.

    Thanks for trying.

    Makes you wonder if it always was?

    So long as the user is okay with only watching recordings (as I certainly am) then yes, the restriction certainly is artificial. And Dan's experiment shows that even that restriction wouldn't be required all the time. Now, it seems like there's no reason a 2-Tuner Premiere couldn't technically work with a Mini. It's just that TiVo doesn't feel like supporting it. :thumbsdown:

    Why are so many people talking about the Roamio when this is a Premiere thread. Come on we don't need to hear how great the Roamio is, we already know damn it.
