    But you can count on about a dozen of the first people to notice it racing to their computers/phones and starting threads! ;)

    (I wonder if the mods get advance notice? "Mod alert! Mod alert! Man the merge buttons!")

    They could make Tivo Desktop somewhat relevant again by adding desktop streaming capabilities

    That old application isn't worth the effort. I would rather see them create a web based TiVo stream solution.

    Get the Android version done, then a nice browser based TiVo to Go and they would be in really good shape.

    Only wish that TiVo was faster at updating software. They tend to be extremely slow and not fully forth coming with what is being fixed or updated. Don't get me wrong. I enjoy my TiVo's a lot. Just would like to see bugs fixed faster. Also, on the premiere line, it would be nice doe the UI to be updated so that it can be a little faster. I've read an update to the UI is coming next year. Hopefully that is the case. :)

    It's unlikely the UI will get any faster. The Premiere line is limited by an underpowered CPU. If you want a faster UI get a Roamio, it has a much faster CPU and a much faster UI.

    I still think if the UI was moved into the cloud or something it would be faster because it wouldn't rely on the CPU or the GPU just the speed of the internet connection it's attached to.

    More likely they will force everyone to buy and IPAD for the UI.

    Instead of using a remote control you would load an app on the iPad and use it to control the TiVo.

    I already do that in some sense. The iPad TiVo app is a lot faster than the Premiere interface so I use it whenever I can.

    Now that the Roamio is out, every time I see any mention of a Premiere update I feel hope, which is quickly overridden by fear of that.

    You too? Usually instead of fear, I get really pissed off.

    Hey TiVo is not Apple LOL!
    That is it's not an update that backfills prior gen equipment.

    So anything TiVo puts out is a gift to us Premiere owners.

    Yes by expectations are set low.

    I am pretty sure we paid for that "gift" with either a large lifetime payment or many monthly payments.

    Hey I wouldn't mind an iPad if TiVo and Apple team up and give us a huge discount for current subscribers. Hurrah for corporate synergy! :rolleyes:

    Relax... TiVo isn't going to kill their own products. My guess is the extra time is so they can spread the rollout over a few weeks/months to handle the resulting increase in support calls. No rollout goes perfect, people will end up calling support.

    Yeah, TiVo may not intentionally kill their own products, but they don't exactly have a very good track record and no one has any faith in their ability not to screw it up. Look at how many years it's taken to get the Premiere where it is today compared to what it was marketed as when it was released in 2009, and in the end they had to release an entirely new product.

    It's now the end of October and still no word on a date for the release of this update. Not even a mention on their website like they did for their past major releases.
