Now that the Roamio is out, every time I see any mention of a Premiere update I feel hope, which is quickly overridden by fear of that.

You too? Usually instead of fear, I get really pissed off.

Hey TiVo is not Apple LOL!
That is it's not an update that backfills prior gen equipment.

So anything TiVo puts out is a gift to us Premiere owners.

Yes by expectations are set low.

I am pretty sure we paid for that "gift" with either a large lifetime payment or many monthly payments.

Hey I wouldn't mind an iPad if TiVo and Apple team up and give us a huge discount for current subscribers. Hurrah for corporate synergy!

Relax... TiVo isn't going to kill their own products. My guess is the extra time is so they can spread the rollout over a few weeks/months to handle the resulting increase in support calls. No rollout goes perfect, people will end up calling support.

Yeah, TiVo may not intentionally kill their own products, but they don't exactly have a very good track record and no one has any faith in their ability not to screw it up. Look at how many years it's taken to get the Premiere where it is today compared to what it was marketed as when it was released in 2009, and in the end they had to release an entirely new product.

It's now the end of October and still no word on a date for the release of this update. Not even a mention on their website like they did for their past major releases.

The stated date was "end of October", right? In that case, I'd bet that the update will be released next Tuesday, the 29th. Gives them a chance to get past the weekend issues on Monday, and a few days left in the week to handle all the support calls that come in from the new update.

With Thursday being Halloween, I doubt they would release it then. It's not an official holiday, but so many companies have contests and parties that it's not a good idea to schedule a major release on that day.

Of course, this assumes that they still plan on releasing the update this month.

The priority update page, coupled with the announcement last week sounds like confirmation to me. Sometime next week is my guess. I've got a Primer Ellite I want to give to my parents to pair with a Mini. Really looking forward to the DTA update...

Worse yet, the Premiere x4 does NOT stream Netflix without freezing and it also does NOT display Photos if you have a MAC. False advertising.

I agree. My concern is however that if they release it just before Halloween, that if there are any problems Wednesday into Thursday, no one would be available Thursday and too hung over on Friday.

Meh...maybe...maybe not....just because she says sign up on the priority list today doesn't mean it'll be released today...

They usually do this stuff on Tuesdays, so it'll probably hit tomorrow and today is the last day to get on the Priority list.

No, was referring to "office party" where they are in the office but not working.

No Netflix update mentioned in Margaret's summary of the release

Premiere XL4 Netflix is unusable
No support for MAC on TiVo desktop so that display Photos feature does not work as advertised either
Bad moves TiVo

Well... I know it's in the works and I had pegged it at better than 50/50 a simultaneous launch with the Fall update. Guess it's not quite ready. Hopefully soon (as a Premiere owner). At least the HTML 5 YouTube and DIAL arrived, so we know the framework is in place?

I was thinking the pullback of profiles for the roamio may be linked to the overall readiness of a new netflix app.

Has anyone tried the to send a URL to the Premeir using the utility on KMTTG yet? Just an interesting test to see if the Opera browser is up and running on the Premiere.
