    So I guess there's no more access to Netflix through the SD Menus.....

    I was just moving through the Menus and the Roamio Pro randomly reset the HDUI.

    This evening I checked my Premiere and the SD channels were Zoomed again, even though the display said Panel, so it also had defaulted back to Zoomed with no interaction on my part.

    This Incorrect Aspect Ratio is also affecting Netflix.

    If the Aspect Ratio is not correctly set to Panel before entering Netflix, then any Netflix SD content is either Full or Zoomed depending on what the setting was prior to launching Netflix. I vaguely remember this happening with a SW version before, maybe a year ago, but that could have been an NDA thing, I can't remember for sure.

    You can test with "Everybody Loves Raymond" S01E01

    Netflix has always kept whatever aspect setting the Tivo was using prior to the launch of netflix. Nothing new with that except the changing ratio issue is causing folks to see that happen more frequently.

    Now that I think about it, you're right.

    I'm extremely pleased with the update. It looks gorgeous and modern. Amazing what the font and color change does for the UI. Performance on my XL4 is fantastic, the fastest and most responsive any TiVo I've ever owned has been. Even the speed of the Xfinity and Netflix apps seems to have improved. I'm impressed as heck!

    Update is nice, faster that's always good.
    Anyone know if there is a way to turn off a couple of the features like

    can one somehow get RID of the list to the right of My Shows.. the new list?

    Also, when making a new recording of a show that one MAY already have in the My Shows list, the first option is now "watch what you have in queue" instead of record this episode, so the click click click would actually take one to watching a show instead of recording something.

    I don't know what people are calling "snappy", but from watching live TV and pressing the "List" button, it can take a full 5 seconds before my recorded shows list finishes displaying.

    I hardly call that snappy, but it may well be an improvement.

    There is supposed to be a way. I don't remember how and the youtube video seems to be gone andI haven't gotten the update yet. I suggest you root around in the settings.

    Don't remember the exact steps, but yes, you can go back to the old style My Shows. Hit the "A" button. In the the box that comes up, select the last item, "Show Categories". I'm pretty sure the option to disable it is in there.

    This seems to be quite variable; I'm on the record as saying "snappy" certainly isn't what I would call this. Improved, yes. Snappy, no....

    While in My Shows press "A" for options. Change categories to "Hide".

    The way I'm seeing this on a Roamio, is when in the guide, and picking a future (or currently buffering live) 1st airing of something (or even a repeat of a different episode number), the record button gives a menu that could mislead somebody to think they already have it in My Shows.

    All it takes is to have a recording of the same program name existing in My Shows (or a pre-existing TDL entry with these same parameters). If none exist, you might not see this.

    This is especially noticeable when recording the first airing of a news slot (like on CNN), where the program has the same name, the data is generic, and doesn't use episodes, but may sometimes use the NEW tag (which seems to make no difference).

    This is something I consider likely to anger people who "trust" the TiVo to know what it is doing, the first time it happens, and they miss an episode of something that won't re-air soon, or won't ever, leaving the only option left to pay for a rental or purchase of that episode (when Hulu doesn't have it).

    Once past being "fooled" once (shame on TiVo), missing this possibility in the future may be considered by some as a "fool me twice, shame on me" scenario. I don't feel it would be right to call this a true "fault of the user", even once aware of the issue existing.

    I'm sure somebody will come up with some convoluted argument that this is a feature that is operating properly and as-intended.

    Got the update overnight. Not immediately that excited, but it's good to see Tivo trying to improve the Premiere even tho you know they want to sell Roamios. It seems a little faster and hopefully will be at a consistent speed.
    The variable speed of the old UI made the slow days even more noticeable.

    I saw they specifically mentioned the speed in the email. I no longer have Premiere units but I'm curious if the speed actually improved.

    sweet home, al
    yes, greatly improved (not to roamio levels).

    i've noticed a much faster response time when using the remote to navigate and execute commands within the hdui menus. the menus respond and populate more quickly, and using "jump" commands like "page up/down" and "end/top of list" are much more responsive.

    Cool. I gave my sister my XL4 so she'll appreciate the bump. I'll put her on the priority list.

    I'm still in the camp that insists they've improved, but not "greatly" or to "snappy" levels. Yes, improved....no, not snappy. But I like most everything about it. I did eliminate the third column in My Show...no need for it.

    Anyone having an issue with their external drives since getting the update?

    I came home to find an "External Storage Missing" screen. I'm assuming this was after the update forced a reboot since there is no evidence of my power going out today. I've restarted multiple times but it keeps failing to recognize my external hard drive. I definitely don't want to lose all of my recordings.

    Any suggestions?
