Now that Roamio is here, will the Premiere HDUI ever get finished?

    agreed. and I am a little bitter that tivo didn't throw premiere owners a bone to upgrade. I put up with a lot of pain with my two units and I bought them on first day of launch some 3 years ago which was at a premium price.

    Would have been nice to have done something for us who basically were beta testers for 3 years.

    I would let it wait awhile. Maybe there will be some upgrade deals in the not so distant future.

    I bought my Elite on release day for full price. Not doing that again...

    I don't fall for the victimization cries of people who are early adopters.
    No1 forced you to be the first out of the gate to adopt a new technology & then see it fall short on your expectations.

    Best bet is to buy any new tech or automobile after the 1st or 2nd year to avoid new intro bugs.

    There is no prize for being early to this party. Only regrets from the unfulfilled expectations.

    Wether you bought the premiere on day one or you bought yesterday....this platform has been a major letdown. Plain and simple. Slow, buggy, incomplete.

    I bought my first Premiere in September of 2010, my second in February of 2013, and my third in March of 2013. To be honest, after the massive updates in 2012 where they added more HD menus and optimized the processor with the updates before 20.3.1, I was the happiest guy in the world. Everything worked perfectly for me then the 20.3.1 update screwed everything up. If TiVo ever fixes it to the way it was before that update, that would be awesome for me.

    Yea. I would be overjoyed if TiVo would just push the old pre-20.3 software back on my Premier. The missing channel thing happened maybe once every few weeks then, now if I start channel surfing I'm lucky to get through a dozen channels without it cropping up.

    Agreed 100%, and also agree that I don't want to be an early adopter for the Roamio Plus I want to get to upgrade my Elite. I've only had the Elite for a little over a year (got it from Woot for $300 on one of their sales), and while it is a slug with a few bugs it does the job generally speaking. I can wait a few months to see if Tivo has any refurbs or wants to sell excess stock to Woot or someone else again. Or maybe they'll finally have a decent whole-home bundle with a couple of Minis for the holidays etc.

    Never going to be an early adopter for Tivo, that's a way to catch a lot of arrows in the back.

    I have two Premieres and love them. I'm more curious. The latest HD additions, especially the season pass manager and seeing what's on other TiVos in HD was a welcome addition.

    I would think that Premiere owners would be the perfect guinea pigs for HDUI changes. We test them out for the Roamio users, so they don't push a bad update to their latest and greatest TiVo.
