    Just hooked up MoCa between Elite and Premier. Got 67.x Mbs transfer rate. I'm amazed.

    There's 2 splitters and an amplifier that data has to travel through. I've ordered another adapter to put my other Premier on MoCa.

    No sure if this has been mentioned but holding the Replay button will instantly go to the beginning of a recorded program.

    Not if you have enabled 30-sec skip.

    STRONGLY disagree. The change is very positive! The varying colors and animations rendered the menus all but unreadable for me. If you must have those, maybe they could give us a choice to turn them on or off. I find the new readable menus a VERY positive change!

    Got a Tivo message today stating that my software was updated today. Still appears to be the same though: 20.2-01-2-748. I have had this version for over a week now. Don't ever remember getting a Tivo message telling me my software was updated either.

    If it was the same message I got, it didn't say "today" and it was informing you of all the new and wonderful things in this release, maybe in the hope that you will not notice all of the flaws. I think they probably waited until all Premieres were updated before sending out the message.

    Yep- they always wait for the update to be pushed to everyone, and THEN send the update message. I always thought that was extremely odd.

    It makes sense from a workers point of view.
    If you were the "worker", which would you choose?

    Worker sees block of Tivos get the update.
    Worker initiates messege to that block of Tivos.
    Worker sees next block of Tivos that get the update.
    Worker initiates messege to those Tivos.
    Etc, etc...
    OR
    Worker passes the time waiting until all Tivos are updated by surfing the internet and playing solitaire. Sends general messege to all Tivos once the rollout is complete.

    :p

    To be fair, with this particular update, it makes a bit more sense as one of the changes being touted is Premiere to Premiere streaming which requires that both Premieres be at 20.2.

    MoCA is awesome. I've had it for two years between my Tivos, it has always downloaded 4X faster than I could watch it, even with commercials cut. :up:



    Can I just say I LOVE STREAMING LIVE TV!!!

    I just think it would be better if the message, itself, were part of the update and required no "worker" work at all!

    Good point, but they could include a message about everything else, WITH the update, then send out another message after everyone is updated.... when they actually turn on the streaming.

    Don't know if this applies to anything but when playing a previously recorded show on the HDUI, using the left arrow at the end of the show doesnt end said show and ask if you'd like to keep or delete it but instead continues to play what's left of it "credits" and goes back to your Now Playing / My Shows list.

    I rather liked that behavior.

    Not seeing that behavior. Still works as before. Were you perhaps not as close to the end of the actual recording as you thought you were?

    Agreed. This status bar needs to be adjusted so that it is immediately obvious that an entire program was recorded. As it is now, I keep thinking that part of it (beginning and end) was cut off.

    It's always within the last minute / 30 seconds when I do it.

    Like under the SDUI I hit left arrow it asks to keep or delete. Under HDUI the preview windows shows with it still playing and I go to my shows list.

    Or if I let it run to the end the preview window comes up paused with an automatic shove to my now playing list if that makes sense.

    Very odd. I'm running the HDUI and, as I said, I'm not seeing this behavior.

    Very odd in deed because I just left arrow'd and got the keep or delete. So maybe it's a litteral timing thing where I was doing it a second to soon or something, I dunno but here's hopin it keeps working.

    At least it didn't get added to the first post as my report of the changed behavior of the up arrow did. It went away as soon as someone else reported it wasn't happening to them.
