    I just checked and was able to delete content from another Premiere when browsing from MRV.



    I also like how some of the symbols(transfer, recording, check marks, folders) now match waht it shows on the HD menus. I guess since they didn't convert the screens they decided to just change the sybols to look more like the SDUI?

    :eek:

    Wow another thing that is new is I can now download from Amazon, transfer from another Premiere, record two shows, and watch a previously recorded show, all concurrently.

    Previously I don't remember being able to download from amazon and transfer from another box.
    So it's now allowing five concurrent streams.

    Make that six concurrent streams. It is also transferring content to another box while also doing the other five things.

    So it's now doing six concurrent streams!!

    Have we confirmed that they HAVEN'T enabled the 2nd core?

    Very cool. I didn't try a transfer yet, but it is nice to see the remote deletion.

    We will probably have to wait and see what the other forum says.

    While that is all great, it does nothing for those of us with no MRV and no desire to pay yet more service fees. Again, I question their priorities.... I would rather have my single Premiere work better before hearing about iPad-only apps and MRV enhancements.

    For example- how about updating the ancient Netflix module? Or fixing the HDUI so it runs much faster? Or stopping some of the annoying freeze bugs! Sorry, just frustrated.

    (Yes, I know, you have no problems with any of your 20 TiVo's)

    Probably makes little or no difference if it is enabled or not. Not until/unless the UI is threaded. That is the better question to be asking.

    This could be entirely due to necessary improvements made to enable streaming.

    Hey look now when you want to stream a show in the future, you will also be able to delete it off the other TiVo after watching it. It also looks like you will be able to stream while doing multiple other things including possibly streaming to another TiVo while also streaming from another TiVo.

    Improving MRV in my opinion will only add to the streaming experience not take away from it.

    Dude-- not to start a war, but you have problems, and we all get it. But this is a post about some new features apparently included in 14.8. No need for this kinda post here just because it does not apply to you.

    I have a P and a THD, and this is sounding pretty cool, and could help me move up from my THD.

    Great news indeed! Perhaps this was something that came out of the iPad development. Out of curiosity does the "clear" button work as a shortcut for remote deletion as well (which is what I use for local deletion), or is just via menu. I always hoped that "play" button would initiate a transfer from remote unit as well instead of having to go to menus for that, but I assume that hasn't changed. Maybe if streaming is enabled in 14.8 at some point the the "play" button will initiate streaming.

    Now if only 14.8 fixes mine and others "does not respond to remote control" issue I'd be extremely happy...

    You are right, of course. No war needed. I have just been pissy lately, sorry. It wasn't helped by being unable to use my TiVo properly for 4 days until yesterday because a drastic cable lineup change and TiVo dropped the ball. And two lockups on top of that.

    As innocentfreak said, it could be another step to non-TiVo streaming. We should be happy for ANY improvements.

    Yes the clear button works. Actually that is how I normally delete things. I had to go back and try it again to make sure that is what I did before.

    And like deleting locally, deleting with the clear button is very quick.

    My Premiere is with the UPS man. This is great, specifically deleting from another box, and I may grab another LT Premiere.
    I have 2 series 3 THX machines and they sell for enough that it's a small adder to jump to Premiere.

    I agree that the Netflix module is ancient, but having played with the new module on my Xbox 360, I find it a hell of a lot easier to just go to the web site and add stuff to my Instant Queue.

    The HDUI isn't all that slow for me. I almost never get a blue ring. I tend to think that the speed of the HDUI is out of their control and lies with the Flash Player. I wonder if this is something TiVo can fix, or something that Adobe needs to fix.

    What I do want is parental controls in the HDUI. Or I need the same TiVo search the HDUI has in the SDUI. Either one will work for me.

    I don't want a war either and in fact will make a simple comment and bow out but those of us who have problems with these things all the time and have to catch flack about it from the family sit in bewilderment when they keep adding things we don't care about when some very basic core functions are still broken after a year.

    The problem though is everyone with problems assumes that is all they did. They hear about a new feature and almost immediately complain they didn't fix their issue. I see it on everything these days from games to hardware.

    We don't know what background updates also occurred. Since this update definitely changed things related to networking, it seems clear to me that there was probably some more optimization done there also.

    I haven't come across any basic core functions that are still broken or ever were, but then it may be features I don't use.

    I wonder, can you disable this feature?

    Hypothetical scenario: Your spouse gets mad at you, goes into the other room and starts remotely deleting your favorite shows. :eek:

    ;)

    No and also no confirmation screen. It would be nice to have user profiles where you could enable or disable remote deletion per user. Based off the mock up screens from the premiere launch there is still the possibility. The remote delete screen is still the sdui so who knows if it is how it will look assuming it gets updated to hd eventually.
