    I thought the latest software version for non-sat S1s was 3.0, but according to

    http://support.tivo.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/311

    it's 7.3

    Anybody know anything about this?

    Both of my S1s are currently under the weather, so I can't check that way.

    At one point the Series 1 TiVos were given a daylight savings time "update". Maybe that is what they mean. Don't remember the software version changing on the TiVo itself though.

    The software versions of TiVo Series 1 have lot of differences between them or else they would not have released different versions. TiVo software version 3.0 or higher directly supports the TiVo TurboNet Ethernet adapter without the additional software hacking needed to enable basic network connectivity. This method is more direct. This was not possible with the lower versions.

    That would be news to me. The 3.0 software release for the s1 standalones came out in 2002 and they wouldn't even provide an update in 2007 when the DST rules changed dismissing it as a "display issue". At that point I started tinkering around with the timezone settings to try to work around it and forum user jberman took that and came up with a way to tweak the timezones with a tcl script which TiVo officially adopted and continues to use to this day.

    Except it isn't the TiVo TurboNet Ethernet Adapter because it's not a TiVo product.

    And your post does nothing to address my question.

    That looks like a typo. Wouldn't be the first time that Tivo had incorrect info on it's website. I sold my last S1 Philips box just a couple of months ago and it was at 3.0. I can't imagine why Tivo would push a new SW update for S1 boxes.

    The latest for the S1 is 3.5d and for the S2 it's 6.4a.
