    First, with all of the bugs mentioned earlier, why are you in such a hurry? Second: http://www.tivo.com/priority_20_4_2

    I was certainly not in a hurry... but I got it anyway. ;)

    I don't use the SD menus. Is there a big Bug for HD GUI users? So far both my boxes seem to be running great, but maybe I'm missing something...

    I'm still waiting for the Spring Update! I know I can request "priority" updating for the Summer Update... Does anyone know if 20.4.1 is rolled into 20.4.2.?

    Everyone should have gotten 20.4.1 a long time ago. If you don't have that, I doubt you'll get 20.4.2. You might want to give TiVo a call about that.

    Got the updates, one TiVo at a time over a three day period.

    For future reference, I was wondering when the unit actually installs the update. On my first two units, it was just suddenly there. On the third unit, when I went into the System menu, it simply showed "restart pending". I forced a restart and it installed in about 30 minutes or so. There was plenty of time for this to happen on its own from the time I got the update mid-morning, i.e., no recordings scheduled for several hours. Perhaps it waits to install on its own in the middle of the night?

    With the new update, it is like night and day navigating the HD menus compared to previous versions. So much better!

    I agree. SO much better now. If mine had come this way I never would have complained about it. :cool:

    I noticed two weeks ago that I still hadn't gotten 20.4.1 on my Premiere XL4, either. When it updated I was hoping I'd just get the latest software update, but it only upgraded to 20.4.1. I finally got 20.4.2 yesterday.

    On my Premiere, I got my update yesterday.

    The Great Martian War is starting tonight and I found it in the video guide in the future, but I don't see any option in the new update to set up a season pass, where did it go?

    On Channel 337 BBCAHD in the future, I get options for "Record this Show" "Recording Options" and "Explore this Show" none of which lead to "Season Pass & other options".

    However, on channel 338 in the future, it does offer "Season Pass & other options".

    ?

    sweet home, al
    have you tried to force a connection, and looked again? i've also had a couple of issues recently with trying to set up a sp, but they eventually cleared up after a couple of days. i thought it was caused by guide info, interesting...

    Confirmed here on my Premiere as well... I noticed the weird stretch, then press the aspect button to go from Panel, to cycle through the rest, and return to "Panel" and it's fine again... not sure what triggers the problem, but it seems to happen overnight for me?

    It seems to be triggered by the HDUI rebooting (whether you are there to notice it, or not), where at least the whole box isn't rebooting (or sometimes that happens too).

    It's not limited to Premieres. The Roamio folks are having the same thing happen, HDUI reboots, aspect changing with false aspect mode reporting, and some have noticed more random reboots of the whole TiVo.

    My XL-4 received the update.
    Nothing excites me about the latest update; especially the extra layer in the my shows list... Never mind I just found the menu to hide the left column. Saw a mention about press "A" button, is this new or are there other functions the letter buttons do?

    As you might deduce, I am far from a power user of the tivo ui.

    The final sentence in this post is what is surprising since "The Great Martian War" is a one-off movie, not a series.

    Agree. With my Premier XL it has made a huge improvement that was immediately apparent. At least it is tolerable now. Before, there were times I felt like just pitching it into the dumpster the lag/unresponsiveness was so bad.

    Got my update over the wknd. Font looks crystal clear to me, so anyone who can't read it must have other issues. Interface is def faster. Only thing I had to do was to get rid of the category sidebar when viewing my recordings. Haven't had time to test anything else, but hope to be pleasantly surprised.
