    This new update seems faster on both HD and SD.

    I cannot, however, access Netflix or Hulu or youtube from the SD menu.

    Clicking VOD from the main SD menu brings up "network unavailable" even though I can access the Tivo service and my HD Tivo.
    Access is fine through the HD menu, but I don't like using it because I can barely read the small font of the HD menu.

    Does anyone know if this is universal with the update, or just a problem with my Premiere?

    For my premiere XL, the new update makes the SD menu MUCH slower but the HD menu is now usable whereas it wasn't before.

    tho the sub categories in the now playing list, are nice, I will never use them, just like the sub categories under search.

    So far not a fan of the font. But I guess that's not that big of deal.

    See no change in menu speed. tho my premieres have always been pretty fast in that area.

    It's the same font that's been on the Roamio. IMHO it's pretty, but perhaps not well-chosen for the "ten-foot interface" (i.e. it's not as legible from my typical viewing distances).

    One thing it does do, I just noticed today, is to reduce the visual difference between the HD menus and the remaining SD screens.

    Really? I think it aggravates the difference...it's MUCH more visible.

    Both the new HD font and the (unchanged, I think) SD font have a kind of squarish aspect ratio on a 16:9 display, where the old HD font (which I think was actually the same as the SD font, just rendered at a different effective aspect ratio) looked vertically stretched in comparison. This seems to have more impact on my perception than the different font weights, at least if I'm not paying close attention. Anyway, the bottom line was that I noticed how I didn't notice the HD -> SD transition in the menus as much. :)

    Anyone else run into the issue where their Tivo Mini and XL4 no longer work together? I called in and they said it was a known issue and should be coming out with a release.

    Both of them have internet connection but they just don't see each other.

    i remember reports in one of the threads, if not this one, try the roamio thread.

    i don't have a mini so i don't understand the setup, but someone said they had to access the menus to designate the host for the mini, and someone else said they had to reboot their equipment.

    Hmmm... Mine is working fine. I have two mini's and both are working with the XL4.

    Did your mini's pick up the new Tivo software?

    I don't want to jinx it, but it's been a week since the update and I haven't seen a single advertisement! They used to show up when I pushed pause and in the Tivo Central screen.
    I did email Tivo's feedback and maybe they blocked them on my unit? Some people report they're still there, bur maybe they listened to my complaints?

    Yes it did. The error keeps saying there is no internet connection on the top, but I can do the network test and connect to Tivo service on the Mini and the XL4 both.

    I have reset both units and they still don't see each other. The support did say it's a known problem.

    Did you check in Settings whether the XL4 is still listed as the host for the Mini? If it isn't, you'll get the no internet connection message.

    [​IMG]I've come across a menu glitch/easter egg in the Remote & Device Settings menu. Since the update when I switch to this menu two new options briefly appear, TiVo DVR Connection and Power Saving Settings. The only info I came across so far on was for the latter. http://help.virginmedia.com/system/...&LANGUAGE=en&COUNTY=us&VM_CUSTOMER_TYPE=Cable
    and http://community.virginmedia.com/t5/TiVo/Power-saving-options-in-newer-firmware/td-p/2039310
    Makes me wonder if this is something yet to come in a future update or if it's left over coding. If anyone has more info on either of these settings I'd love to hear more.

    If this is implemented, I hope that the the existing standby is still available. I use it to avoid recording EAS messages but want the 30-minute buffers there when I go active.

    Thanks. I went in and re checked it and selected it again and everything is back up and running. I guess the update knocked it off which one the host was.

    Thanks again.

    Finally, I just got the update last night. Liking it so far. As others have said, it's somewhat faster that before in the HD menus. Netflix is still sloooooow. I like the new font and colors. No problems with my 50yo eyes at 10 feet from my 47" LG. Liking the sub categories, but every time I change the order, they just revert back to default. Anyone else see this happening?

    are you pressing the "a" button to save your settings before exiting "my shows left column"?

    go to my shows, press "a", make your changes, then press "a" again to save before you exit each screen. the direction to press "a" to save the changes is at the bottom of each screen.
