    Since upgrading the Premiere to the Roamio, I no longer follow the Premiere forum (I am sure I am not alone). And the thread for the survey is there, not here.

    New survey came out today. TiVo is very interested in the feedback about the new Roamio (good and bad). They want to know when/how we watch TV especially how we find what to watch.

    Nothing exciting. Mainly just general feedback questions.

    Stupid survey. Lots of the booze/beer I had never heard of. Told them that and they then proceeded to ask dozens of questions about a product that I just said I never heard of.

    Strange, I've been doing these surveys for a few years now. Didn't get an email about this new one like I usually do.

    I've noticed people always start talking about a new survey about a day or two before I actually get the email. It seems Tivo sends the email out in different groups, so you probably just have to wait a day or so. I haven't got mine either.

    +1. I thought this was odd. After telling them I've never heard of (for example) Apothic liquor, they ask six specific questions asking me to rank my feelings about it. Where's the button that says "I don't know it, how can I rank it".

    The choice "Agree less" really isn't appropriate in this case. Survey fail in this aspect.

    And then questions about certain brands, "Are they urban?", "are they smooth?". I just told you I've never heard of them! How can I answer this?!?

    And on and on ...

    +2. I had only heard of a couple, so I mostly just answered straight 5s (other than on the "this is my only choice" question, which always got a 1) to avoid skewing whatever results they were hoping to garner from the survey. Re: the later questions, do any people actually think about liquors in those ways? Even for the ones I had heard about, I just marked the choice that said I don't think of it that way or whatever it was.

    Oh well. I've done stupider surveys that didn't involve the chance at winning prizes. Just seems like they won't get much value from their answers. :)

    I actually enjoyed the adult beverage quiz, I knew a good 3/4 of them and had opinions on those same 3/4.
    There were only a few I hadn't heard of, but they did ask about my goto wine, so I enjoyed answering questions about it.

    The liquor questions were awful. I straight up didn't know like 3 of the 4 brands they were asking about, but they kept asking me questions about them! Also, their beer choices were generally not good beers. Come on, do test marketing for things that don't suck, TiVo! :)

    I didn't get the questions...probably because I listed my occupation as "marketing/advertising/consultant"

    Horrible survey on the alcohol crap. I have never consumed alcohol in my life, and never will. I pay no attention to brands and after going through minutes of the same stupid questions I can't answer, I finally backed out (a dozen "backs") so I could opt out of that entire line of questioning.

    I find it amazing that companies still can't comprehend how to make proper surveys.

    The rest of the survey was interesting, and I made sure to comment on how I want all the crap OUT of My Shows (HD recordings, video providers, what to watch, etc) and the ability to create *CUSTOM* folders.

    The section where they asked for feedback on several different functions (SP, WL, etc) was the first time I've seen them do this. I spent some time crafting my most significant (IMHO) wants & dislikes. I hope they are sincere in asking.

    As a heavy WL user, I had quite a bit of feedback in that area for them.

    You can still win, just skip the part about alcohol. They give you that option.
