    Mine is working well also. The interface UI is great.
    Really enjoy that you can explore a show and view cast to find other shows to watch. Also great search options.

    I had few issues. Late 2010 when purchased 'my shows' list would freeze with many shows in the list. A later update resolved that.
    My hard drive was failing after year and half. Once replaced issue was resolved.
    Doubling it to 2tb was worth it.
    Tivo servers had issues last spring/summer with network outages for on-demand.
    Customer service confirmed this.
    Recently remote was not responding to commands. Replacing battery resolved this.

    Much better than the cablevision and fios dvr's. Glad I chose Tivo over Moxi and HTPC.

    I wanted to add my experience as well. Went from Series 3 HD to XL4 with Tivo Stream. First I got it at Best buy with their 4 yr warranty. Currently they are matching online competitors. Since Crutchfield doesnt charge tax when shipped to my state, I asked them to match - and they did. No sales tax on the XL4 or the warranty.

    The HDUI is not as slow as I thought it would be. Certainly not as fast as my old S3 but not a deal breaker. I love love love the Fios Moca connection. I plugged my PS3 into the XL4's ethernet and now my Amazon Instant video streams super fast with no bufferring at all!

    To top it all off downloading my recorded shows to my iphone just before I go to bed and having the shows there on the train ride to work is the icing on the cake.

    Thank you Tivo!

    My S4 XL and Elite have been working great also. And with an early release of the next update, I've finally converted from the SD menus to HD. The improvement in Season Pass modifications by doing them in the background finally did it for me, along with improvements in response time for the HD menus.

    I love my 2 Premieres so much (1 w/cablecard, 1 w/OTA only) that I've just replaced our TiVoHD with a Premiere 4 and have purchased another Premiere for my daughter to replace her S2 when she graduates college next month. With the HD menus, the iPad/iPhone apps and streaming we nearly have the whole home TV setup we've longed for since getting our first TiVo over 12 years ago.
