    I stumbled across this in Twitter by accident.
    http://www.tivo.com/priority_20_4_2

    Margret has announced they are taking the TSN for the next release very shortly.

    Never mind, this was already posted by the group earlier today. : )

    Just wondering . . . why would anyone rush to get on a priority list for an update with no clue about what it updates? Has Tivo published a summary of the changes anywhere?

    :confused: Who's "in a rush"? Just because it's a priority list doesn't mean anyone's "in a rush"....

    Someone needs to brush up on their definitions of "priority."

    Standard def..........the right to take precedence or to proceed before others

    Seems pretty clear to me.....huh?

    Maybe clear to you....just because someone signs a priority list doesn't mean they're "in a rush"....I don't believe your "definition" indicated someone is in a rush :D In a rush indicates great urgency. Precedence does not...

    If you wanna keep splitting hairs, be my guest....but I'm through.

    Odd, with the latest download a TiVo with lifetime or evaluation will do manual recording again even without a current TV guide download. (not that most anyone would have a use for such a feature ) With the last software it screamed for a connection all the time and wouldn't do any recording. Now I am wondering if TiVos without service with do manual recording without a subscription like some of the old Series 1s will do. (if I remember correctly ) I will have to hook a unsubbed Premier up and test it. Odd that they would change that back to how it was before.

    Got an email from TiVo with the following info:

    Also, this update has it's own webpage. Hoping the "zippier performance" is really noticeable on the Premiere. Sadly, no mention of Amazon Prime Streaming.

    http://www.tivo.com/serviceupdates

    Also, this feature is not listed in the email quoted above but is in the website:

    On-demand and web app options now in Guide: You're no longer limited to live TV when browsing the Guide. With on-demand and web app options now included, browse shows from yesterday, today or tomorrow and watch them anytime with the click of a button.

    I'm also looking forward to zippier performance. I picked up an Amazon Fire TV recently, and this little box puts all other TV boxes to shame! It's speed is amazing. I've also played a bit with a newer Samsung TV with a quad core processor in it (similar to the Fire TV processor). I hope the next box TiVo puts out has a similar processor. There's no need to put up with this lagging and slowness in today's electronic equipment IMHO.

    I don't there's going to be a "next box".

    As to the Summer update? The only feature I'm really interested in right now is Folders for different users (aka my Kids). Until they do that, I can't use a Roamio as a whole family DVR.

    Do you mean that you doubt there is going to be a next box? You think the roamio is going to be the last?
