    Big Netflix announcement today that they're unifying the UI across devices to a brand new experience. Unfortunately, among the many many devices explicitly mentioned, Tivo was not one of them. That said, anyone pop into nflx on TiVo this morning to check?

    The profile enabled app that showed up on TiVo a few weeks ago looks nothing like the one Netflix is showing off now. Perhaps that is why they pulled it in order to push the new UI out. Hopefully they will do it soon.

    Sorry I was referring to what you can do while watching live tv or recordings, not while in netflix.

    Exactly.

    Funny thing is that as of just now it hasn't yet been pushed to my ps3 which was the first device in the press release iirc.

    I haven't gotten it on my PS3 either, which is surprising since they tend to try everything on the PS3 first. In fact the banner content ad that's been a regular part of the PS3's player for a couple of months is missing. Whatever; I hope that it comes to my Roku 3 soon; I'm most interested about how it will perform on it.

    Profiles would be nice. We just signed up for Netflix with the Roamio and my profile is littered with a whole bunch of sappy chick flicks. The GF loves it and I can't find a way to remove them form my profile.

    Well my ps3 updated but for the first time ever I didn't have to install an app update. It was just...there, this morning. Pretty slick new interface.

    My ATV has not changed, nor has the TiVo.

    The ATV isn't changing. Netflix made that clear when they announced the new UI. Since TiVo is using the HTML5 app, it will surely come to the Roamio's. It is just a matter of when. I can't imagine it will take that long but we will see.

    It looks like my netflix updated today. When i launched netflix i got a message about improved searching and graphics. Now when i play something pressing info shows resolution but no more bitrate info. Even worse pressing info again no longer hides this info. And now my roamio is showing c33 error even though network diagnostic checked out. C33 fixed itself 10 minutes later but now i have a c501 error. Wonder if this is all due to Netflix?

    My Vizio TV, which uses HTML5 apps via Yahoo! apps service, still hasn't been updated. It got the profiles update the day it was released so I'm surprised it didn't get the update yet.

    It's good to see the TiVo app got updated so quick. It looks nice. And you can change the audio/subtitles during playback which is nice.

    [Sigh] Par for the course for TiVo again. (And I know TiVo apologists will probably say this is Netflix's fault but it's up to TiVo to give Netflix thumbs up or down on actually making it available to TiVo users).

    The app is working fine for me. I'm hardly bothered by how they format the debug info on the screen. You can hide the debug info by hitting up while it is paused btw. It is certainly no failure on TiVos part as everything is working fine on my end.

    I just tested it out and I have the update as well. I noticed the info bug and was like wtf? if you press info enough times really fast it finally goes away :D

    Hopefully they fix it though. Not many people may think of going rapid fire on the info button. It is repeatable though. Takes about 10+ clicks and every other click when it should go off I see a weird transparent block over half of it.

    Works really nice so far other than that.

    I don't believe that's true. Netflix's whole purpose of going to the HTML5/Webkit platform was to stop having to ask for the OEMs help or permission when they want to change their UI. They change the UI as easily as they change their web page and I don't believe that they ask OEMs for permission to do it anymore than they ask the web browser producers for permission to change their site.

    I'm sure that if TiVo relays a bunch of complaints from their customers about the new UI being buggy or performing intolerably poorly they'll back out of it and investigate. I'm sure that they'll take any complaints about the style of the UI as relayed through TiVo into consideration as well, though those aren't likely to push them to change.

    I have been able to press info and get bitrate into for a couple weeks.
