    Nada. Maybe tomorrow. (Haven't we previously determined that multiple dials in the same day have no chance of getting an update if the first one doesn't?)

    Well I think George was lucky to get his. As TiVoPony said this is a small release. Next week we should see a larger amount of us get it.

    I tried a second force call to the server (via wireless connector) and it went through everything in about 5 seconds. So when it gets here it gets here.

    Are you refering to AC3 tracks via wireless/ethernet or are you talking about digital channels? If your referring to music I think you'll still need to get the plug in for that.

    On the channels I had problems with sound TW simply removed the digital tracks that were causing me problems.

    A few observations...

    When I rebooting the S3 remembered the channels I had selected and unselected. That seems to be fixed. It seems that the graphic icons for the checkmarks next to the channels has been updated maybe? They seem different anyway.

    Paging through the Grid Guide seems fast (I can't remember how fast it was before). The only issue is that the HD logo that shows what shows are in HD take some time to appear.

    The Digital Photo viewer is not in HD.

    My TiVo didn't go into the dreaded reboot loop like it has been. In fact my CableCards seem happier (but considering I don't know what ECM and EMM counts mean I am not certain of this).

    The HD folder has a new icon.

    I am not seeing PRODUCT WATCH feature.

    I don't know much about photography but wouldn't the picture itself have to be in HD? And this wasn't on the list of things TiVoPony said would come with this release.

    I believe they said that was suppose to be fixed with this release. I guess you won't know until you get it though.

    MRV works(a bit, I think). I'm currently transferring a show from an S2. No problems with setting up the transfer. But I press play and I'm just getting a blank TiVo menu screen.

    Will update you after the transfer.

    Edit: sigh. Not quite there, it looks like. I lost patience and interrupted the transfer, hoping I'd be able to play it then. I have a partial recording of 27 minutes on the S3, but when I play it says it was not able to detect a signal on the channel. I'm currently trying to transfer a complete show.

    Edit2: Nope. got the same thing on a complete 30 minute show. It's listed in full on the S3. It has a disk usage of .61 GBytes on the S3. But the S3 is reporting it can't detect a signal.

    All the intermediate signs were good: the S3 was reporting the transfer; it was appearing with a blue dot on the S3 now playing list during the transfer... But it looks like something else needs to get done.

    Edit3 (the day after): It's clear that MRV is NOT supported in this release. TiVo is still trying to figure out why I can do the very partial MRV that I can; I'm not going to make any more comments until they get back to me.

    Thanks for the update Pony and Jerry. Was wondering if there are plans to add HD only tags to wishlists anytime soon? I didn't see that as one of the new features and I know it's been very frequently asked about in this forum and is something the DirecTivo units had. Thanks again.

    So does, or does not this update fix the reboot loop problem? I never heard anything definitively, only 3rd party. I still have the old version, but I haven't had a reboot loop since Saturday when I did the "antenna"/gs/cc/gs fix.

    Well digital photos are typically much higher res than even HD (My photos from my Nikon D80 for example are 3872x2592). My XBOX 360 for example will show my digital photos in HD resolutions. I thought at CES someone had said the S3 was running the new 8.1 software and that the photos were in HD resolution. Not a big deal (the bugs were far more important), but I assumed this version would have that feature.

    Before the update when I had rebooted my S3 it would usually go into the reboot loop. After installing 8.1.1.S1, my S3 did not go into the reboot loop like it usually did after it rebooted. TiVoJerry told me this version fixes that issue. So far so good! :up:

    I've seen in the past where you have to force a second call-in to get MRV working properly. Initiate another call on your S3 (and perhaps even the S2). Then try again and let us know.

    I presume this includes WPA2 as well?

    Unless you are using a < 1 megapixel camera, your pictures are MUCH higher resolution than the 480i that the S3 outputs it at.

    I don't. That'd be nice, sure, but he'd have said that if it was the case.

    Doesn't the S2 have WPA2? If so, I'd expect this release to bring the S3 up to WPA2 as well.
