    Anyone want to speculate what this summer has in hold for the update? The field test email messages appear to have been sent out, at least I have received one which I haven't responded to yet. Granted once the NDA is set you can't really comment so I thought I would bring it up, for myself to participate I may have to put the original drives back into my Roamio's which won't be too bad since this coming weekend I'm replacing my basic Roamio with a Pro.

    Other than possible Android Stream support, anyone care to speculate what the summer has in hold for Tivo users?

    3 column My Shows
    Native streaming over cellular connections
    New Amazon app (hopefully with Prime support)
    Android Streaming
    TiVo Mini UI matching the Roamio UI
    Maybe something in the social arena

    I've never participated in any TiVo field trials, but if they are just now sending out beta invites I'm wondering if the Summer Update will be released more towards the end of summer rather than, say, sometime in June.

    How long does a typical beta for a major TiVo release usually run? I would guess 2 or 3 months without having any experience with them.

    Hopefully Amazon streaming as well as the Android Stream support. And a new Mini UI would also be nice.

    I haven't heard a peep from the field trials program for a LONG time... several years now, I think. I had to go and actually check and see if I was still signed up, which I am. I wonder how they select which people get invited to which programs.

    You have to have non upgraded TiVos in your account for one thing.

    The problem now is that with four and six tuner Tivos, I don't have extra Tivos lying around like in the old days when two tuners was the max. So I wouldn't want beta software on a DVR I need to use on a regular basis. Plus beta testing is time consuming. Having to dedicate up to an hour or more each day to do the testing properly.

    I just did the TiVo advisors' panel May survey.

    Very short one this time.

    No questions about Android, Amazon, etc. I was hoping they would ask for feedback on Comcast On-demand. They need to work on improving that.

    Interested in my desktop/laptop/etc. OSes. (Android wasn't one of the options though ChromeOS was.) Presumably just for TiVo Desktop purposes.

    They've barely been interested in Android at all in these surveys.

    Of course this is reasonable, since there are more Android devices in the world then all other OSes combined. An insignificant market.

    Sometimes it is worth going in and creating a new record. At one point they requested you do this since they added more questions and changed something. If you didn't do this, you may not show up on the list of candidates.

    you realize the Comcast app works better on tivo than their own box? And that Comcast owns the app?

    No need to ask about Android. The answer is known, no need to ask the obvious!

    Not too much I want. The XoD app is a disaster, but then again XoD is kind of pointless when you have a TiVo. Just for platform parity, I guess I'll put my vote in for streaming on the Android side of things...

    I speculate that there won't be a summer update. I bet it's closer to late fall/early winter. ;):p

    Considering it crashes all the time, yes.
