    Engadget is confirming that MRS is enabled in this release. Zatz shouldn't have gone to bed, he got scooped!

    But there is no way to test unless you have multiple boxes with the new update.

    I believe their source is TiVo. Of course the devil is in the details. Does streaming obey copy restrictions on digital content?

    If yes, then yawn. If no, then they may have just sold another Premiere

    No streaming ignores the copy flags since it streams rather than copies. I think Aaron meant more to test performance rather than verify it exists.

    Yes. I can't check it out since my other boxes did not get updated.

    The whole point of streaming is to enable streaming of content flagged as copy once. This will allow you to stream most content that is flagged by cable companies.

    My Discovery bar is now only showing four items. And it won't scroll to other items like it used too. That should please some people.

    Did't the progress bar used to show minutes and seconds? Now it just shows minutes.

    It's also still upconverting to 720P even when 480P is checked.

    FF is the same as before too. I like it anyway.

    This is definitely a nice change. I only wish all my boxes got the update, or at least my Elite too since I use my Elite the most often.

    The settings menu is different. Looks almost HD now.

    Not sure I like the discovery bar now. The shows are labeled such as top pick okay, popular on web, my shows, etc. same as Aaron though I can't scroll anymore.

    Mine looks like it's SD with an HD TiVo guy. The text is not sharp like it would be in HD.
    The background is different though.

    Yes, Multi-Room Streaming is coming with this release, but it is enabled a little bit differently, so it won't be turned on until everyone has been updated.

    Hulu Plus is now integrated into Search.

    (It isn't any fun if I tell you *everything*, right?)

    Only if you do once it rolls out to everyone so we can confirm we found it all.

    Looks like my un-upgraded units show only minutes - so perhaps no change there.

    You guys are, in my mind, the Apple of DVRs, but I hope you'll release more detailed release notes than they do :) More transparency is better than less, always. Especially when you have a technically adept user base and community like us nerds here

    Yeah I am seeing the same.

    Yes the minutes under the progress bar is new. Previously we only saw arrows at least in the HDUI.

    The skip time is centered again.

    The guide looks good. I hope there are plans to add functionality though. It would be nice to see more added at least under options.

    Also from the latest tweet you can stations in search results now.
