    I don't know the extent of it but I'm pretty sure my basement workout room HD got a software update within the last couple/few months.

    You got a ceton card to? Mine has been working good. but sometime the guide does not update till theres 4 days of programing left.

    Also i added more memory to my computer and playready stopped working. Any hardware changes to the computer brakes windows drm playready program forcing a reinstall on windows 7.

    But i havent used my tivo hd in a month and my tivo still keeps working.

    Its nice being able to record 6 channels at one time)

    I got the USB. I don't check the guide data so I have no idea when it updates. I just know I'm not losing it. ;)

    Yes, I changed the processor and Playready broke. MS is anal about DRM, IMHO. As I said, not as consumer friendly as Tivo, but it works well for me.

    Huh.....wasn't paying that much attention, but thought something minor on the GUI changed fairly recently. Mea culpa.

    Your cable system doesn't carry the local sub-channel that is showing MeTV?

    Me-tv is the only sub channel they dont carry. But they are talking about adding it. I watch a lot of me-tv.

    I can stream ten Netflix videos at once. I don't of course as that would be ridiculous but I can. Kind of ridiculous you need two OTA tuners just for one station also.

    I have it set so i can record on cable card or antenna. So if all cable tuners are in use it will record the locals from the antenna. and if the 2 antenna tuners are in use it will record from cable.

    Dont now what im going to do with my tivo hd. i had to upplug the tuning adapter for 5 hours so the gc file would update. tivo needs to fix this.

    If you like MeTV, you should check out Antenna TV

    Do those Monkees reruns include the part at the end of the later years shows when they had guest artists on?

    If they EVER do a Series 3/HD update I would like to see a toggle on the conflict screen. That is: when there is a scheduling conflict (involving 2 programs already set to record and you trying to put another 1 on)... it would be good to allow us to hit 1 button (enter/last for example) and let the user flip between the 2 shows - instead of now, if you would rather it not cancel the 1 but are ok with it cancelling the other - you have to back out of the recording, go into the To Do List and manually delete the (other) recording that isn't offered on the recording page. Again, it should just allow you to toggle the 2 conflicted shows and pick which one to not record (instead of totally relying on the priority order of Season Pass). Not sure of Premiere - but it would be a good policy change in general.
