    I'd immediately order a Mini (or two!) if that was part of the update.

    I get the impression not yet, because Margret replied to someone earlier stating this year rather than this update.

    It seems like the fall may be their drop-dead date for a number of things all happening at once. Along with new snappy DVRs, they should also have the Minis mostly fixed and hopefully Android support for the Stream and the new DVR's integrated transcoding.

    It'll be nice if they finally have the whole-home lineup running on all 4 cylinders.

    Maybe it is something to do with the imminent obsolescence of the TiVo Desktop software and a possible replacement.

    Agree, once dynamic tuner allocation is in, I will probably pick up two. I am also hoping for a new faster 6 tuner model. Based on the naming change from Elite to Premiere 4 and Premiere 4XL, I am hoping we see Premiere 6 and Premiere 6XL. With 3TB and 4TB drives becoming common they could make an appearance, especially with a home lineup like they are setting up with a more centralized hub and spoke concept. Cable cards can handle up to 6 streams, so I am crossing my fingers.

    It worked for all four of my 2-tuner Premieres as of today. It could mean there's another one coming, or as previously suggested, just taking the TSNs regardless. I wasn't even logged into my account.

    It's also good PR to always keep us thinking they're actually going to fix and/or add something (and hopefully not break, or take away, something, as is also fairly common).

    It's being replaced. The current version won't be available much longer. The new might well need the new tivo update to function.

    Looks like the update is confirmed for this month. I am not expecting anything major right now based on her comments in twitter. but wouldnt be surprised if there is a lot of background software things addressed. I think the database change in the fall precluded this

    TiVo recently sent me an email encouraging me to grab the free version of TiVo desktop before it's no longer available. Why would they bother doing this if it will soon be completely useless?

    All the TiVo desktop needs to do is provide a way to transfer the show off the Dvr's.

    Why would you assume No Longer Available = Completely Useless?

    Tivo is just no longer going to make a free version available. Mostly due to support issues with Windows 8. The paid version which includes the codecs that Win 8 does not, is still available and will be for the foreseeable future, IE its not being cancelled.

    Don't read more into this than there is.

    Ditto for both of my boxes. Quite excited!:up:

    OOOH!! Man I would love if they'd bring Android support for the Stream. I just hate that they are currently snubbing such a large group of customers who use Android. In fact the current lack of Android support was one of the reasons why I purchased a Premiere 4 instead of the Stream. Personally I wish the Stream supported MoCA but that's for another thread :p

    I'm personally more looking forward to seeing if they fix the incorrect and missing channel logo issue that has been an ongoing problem for years.

    Same here.

    See, and some people get their underwear in a knot when I (admittedly) get on my soap box with TiVo development.

    I am upset, but at the same time not surprised that the DTA for the Mini will get pushed back.

    I can't wait until the fall when everyone anticipates the new products along with some updates for their existing ones, and TiVo announces a delay until first quarter 2014 which ends up being 2nd quarter 2014.
