    Am I to assume after the rollout completes additional apps are to be released or is this a strong rumor floating?:rolleyes:

    Assume what you want, there has been no promise of this.

    Rumor was around a new Amazon app, not much else.

    same here. my hdui was not entirely stable last night :)confused:), reset itself, back to stretched on 4:3. once you select your choice, it will stay until the next reset.

    I just e-mailed Margret about this bug and also posted on her Twitter feed...

    Well, that resets the HDUI. I assume a reboot would have the same effect. But does it revert for anything less?

    Just got off the phone with TiVo Tech support and found out that this update also fixed the heartbleed bug that was going around a few months ago (just for the sake of fixing it he said) as well as adding something called "embedded Switched Digital Video" support which I'm guessing that those external adapters won't be needed soon. I'd love to find out more about it but I was told it was more of an engineering question and we all know how difficult it is to get in touch with them.

    When starting a movie on Netflix hit the TiVo info button and you will get a lot of Netflix information on the left upper part of your screen inc. if you are getting Netflix super HD. (This was also true before the update)

    Not true...certainly depends on your internet speed. I'm still seeing initial quality at 480i before it gets up to 1080p or super HD. And I'm on a medium tier high speed connection (50 DL and 5 UL).

    i waited about a day to comment on any speed improvments to let the update settle. it's a big improvement for my pxl, but i guess "snappy" is a relative term that's perceived differently by each user. maybe the number of tuners or individual networking is affecting the performance for different users?

    overall, i'd say greatly improved performance for me, much better than "tolerable", and a lot better than expected. :up:

    Update hit my boxes and I literally wept at the beauty. Words cannot express how pleased I am.

    I've mentioned this before, on the 20.4.2 software my 5 year old 320GB Premiere has always seemed "snappier" then my 1 year old 500GB Premiere 4 and my 1 year old 500GB Premiere. All on the same network, same cablecards. Could just be the hard drive or software cache?

    Oh, come on! Now you're just trying to make those of us who didn't sign up for the priority list feel bad.

    This is interesting—we only have 30 Mbps down.

    Prior to the update our premier behaved exactly as you describe, and the tivo or receiver would drop a few frames with each quality change. This made the first 30 seconds or so of every title pretty painful to watch. Since the update it appears to be in HD from the first second (confirmed via receiver that video is 1080p by 5 seconds in) and no more frames dropping.

    Also, when scrolling through the menus before the update, there would be over a one second delay with each button press, and images would be slow to load once the screen finally responded to a previous button press. Now everything is instantaneous—so I can actually browse on the tivo rather than browsing on another device and cueing titles for easier playback on tivo.

    Odd that the performance improvement we've seen wouldn't be similar for everyone else too.

    Same here.

    Would be an issue, except since I first got HD in 2004 I have refused to watch anything in SD on principle.

    Checked my Premier XL4 around an hour ago and saw "pending restart". I manually restarted and was up and running within a half hour.

    The HD menus are much quicker, and so far I like the new look and feel.

    Well done, Tivo!

    I signed up for the priority update yesterday and got it this afternoon. I like the look of the Roamio UI but I'm in the camp that doesn't think the speed is that much of an improvement. I'd say slight improvement if anything.

    That said I do like some of the new features such as the grouping in My Shows. That's nice.

    I'm trying to be patient... but I forced a reconnect yesterday and it d'loaded a file for about 20 min, then I restarted it but nothing new.
    I know someone said the deadline had passed to sign up but I went and put in my # and got nothing to say it was too late to sign up. . Just waiting...
    Menu slowness is the only downside on both my lifetime Premieres.

    same for me since 2005, except for one show on one channel not offered in hd. the show only airs a few weeks each year, so no it's no big deal.

    I'm really not. Man I didn't even think it would come across like that. :confused: It's coming for you guys next week starting the 14th of July. There's still time to sign up for the priority list. I signed up yesterday and got it today. TiVo tech support said that the priority list is still up and will be pushing out the priority update between now and the 13th so if you sign up now you should get it sooner.
