What they need to do is add the feature they showed at CES 2010. Where you could have multiple "my shows" lists to accomodate multiple people.

That would also be good for shared shows between premieres. I have 3 and it would be nice to show each one (like now) or have the option to show ALL as a shared now playing list.

I too would love the multiple users in the my shows area, I forced a connection today at 4:21. After it finished the next call was scheduled for today at 5:44, why would it want to connect after less than 2 hours? I am sure it was today not tomorrow checked at 5:55 and says last successful connection was at 5:48. Next connection Wednesday at 2:29 AM

Parental controls has been in the TiVo software since close to the beginning (2002, software version 3.0). KidZone was added back in 2006 (version 7.3) as an optional replacement to Parental Controls (you could use one or the other). So KidZone isn't being replaced by Parental Controls, it's just that Parental Controls are being added to the HDUI, while KidZone is not.

I wouldn't get your hopes up. I haven't seen anything saying any new HD screens are coming. I would guess more optimization and the apps we know about along with parental controls. .

I would guess the update after this they would start working on new HD screens and features. This would also be hopefully after the Preview and transcoder are launched so more optimization and bug fixes in respect to those functions.

Yeah, I am not holding out great hopes, myself. I dropped Netflix and have zero interest in watching YouTube on a TiVo or in parental controls. So I am only interested in possible bug fixes and performance improvements. Crossing my fingers...

I remember seeing tivodesign post that the new HD menus are NOT in spring update.

In regards to the HD menus, everyone just needs to relax and be patient. These boxes have only been out for a couple years. Give TiVo some time to implement them.

He did put a at the end of it... I can't imagine anyone seriously suggesting that finishing the product two years after selling it to consumers was the right way to go.

Wasn't the spring update supposed to be out by the end of the month, and isn't that... today?

Don't forget the beta test.

Do any beta testers here have the new software yet?

they COULD be talking about the current interface

it's doubtful beta testers would have the "new software"...the last software they touch before a final product rolll-out is probably a "release candidate" which, while essentially the shipping product, is still not the officialy released "new software".

Me and a couple of other people sent a tweet to @tivodesign about the spring update. Not quite ready yet. Maybe Early Summer? Who knows...

You do know that Spring technically goes until June don't you.

At least it's not like years past, when the "Fall/Winter" update would arrive in April.

My best psychic prediction is . . . maybe by the end of next week or next weekend? It's cloudy here so my psychic waves are not going thru very well

By the way, people in the beta program are bound by an NDA, so don't count on them saying stuff in a public forum.

fieldtrials.tivo.com if you wanna test. Might take a year before they finally contact you. (took 3 years for Microsoft to finally ask me, but once your in your IN for life or until you request out or don't do your homework)

Very often NDA restrictions are lifted just before a product ships so that's not entirely true!

Actually Beta NDA agreement's never end when the product is release.

I have signed NDA's for products that came out over 6 years ago that I am still not allowed to talk about (or will be ever).

fun fact: testers arn't even allowed to discuss what there testing with each other (99% of the time) since it could influence there opinion and they want only your experience (if you don't know how to do something they need to see it)

It must all depend on the software or hardware companie's NDA agreement. I too have been an a beta and an alpha test site for products for many years. There comes a time when we are told we may discuss the product publicly, but are still limited in WHAT we can say about the beta program and our partcipation in it. We have never been discouraged from discussing our own experience with others in the program as we're even given access to discussion groups where we can share info and solicit the help and assistance of other users.

So, it must all depend on the company you are testing with. And, in my case, it's not a small company!

In the Tivo Beta Testing they are encouraged to interact with each other, and even have their own forums to post in.

Do they also allow you to talk about how your a tester in public forums? (how could you know that unless your a tester?) but thats awesome if your are!

@tivodesign posted that the spring update is not quite ready:
