I suppose if anything weird is going to happen, it WILL happen to me! The same thing happened when I went to register for the Spring update.

I would guess it is still a week off. I know she replied to someone on twitter that she was working on getting teaser screens up for all to see.

The real question is will it bring any new functionality to the TiVo. New screens are nice, but added features are better.

I'm hoping for performance tweaks in the Elite/XL4.

I also wonder if this update enables Adobe Air 3.0 support.

I'd say it's further out than that. As far as I'm aware, no one has received a pre-release version yet. Historically TiVo releases a pre-release version of the software to a handful of randomly selected boxes and then after no less than 2 weeks, releases it to every one (unless a major problem is found).

I am talking about the initial early pre-release roll out. The priority signup is usually for the early release. Or at least it was last update iirc.

Looking back at the last time the priority list went active, the actual (not pre-release) software was released the next day. That's obviously not happening this time.

I think we were all spoiled by the spring update. The Spring Update was a huge improvement, at least for me. The guide is light years better than the old one. The UI was faster. OSD was in high def. Overall just a very positive experience.

I think TiVo has a lot to live up to after that update. I just signed up both TiVo boxes without issue.

I think this was the original Spring Update notification:
http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb...d.php?t=485471

So as someone indicated earlier, last time it took almost 6 weeks between the signup page going live and the first boxes getting the priority update.

The Fall Update won't be out for several weeks as TiVo is still accepting beta participants.

No dammit, don't give credit where there's none due. They didn't do us any favors by giving us that spring update other than MRS. How quickly do we forget that we are still waiting for a completed user interface 2 and a half years after the product was released to the public.

Considering they launched the product with 50% of the screen completed, bumping that up to 70% after two years doesn't deserve a round of applause.

I agree. Not sure what happened during the first year of the Premiere but this past year deserves applause to TiVo for finally getting things done and out.

Now let's get that HBO Go app contract signed and out!

Same for 'On Demand'.

A lot of us lost OD when we upgraded to Premieres. It's not a deal-breaker for me but I'd like to have it since I pay for it with my cable co.

Yeah it looks good. It definitely hints at some new features in the season pass manager.

She will probably send one out soon. She just upped the To Do list.

Is there also a way to turn off the "live tv window". This can be a problem when recording sports because you risk seeing the end of the game when you are trying to start a recording.

Update: Found my answer.

If you'd rather permanently turn off the Video Window, from TiVo Central, select 'Settings & Messages' > 'Settings' > 'Displays' > 'Video Window.'

Note that when you bring up Guide you get the Video Window regardless of this setting.

Thanks... I saw that also. I am using the SD menus right now and so I don't see the game in progress I press the Tivo button before I turn on the TV so the menu is up before the TV come on. If I was unable to turn off the video window in the HD menu than that would not have worked. I have not used the HD menus yet but am going to give it a try after the Fall update.

Funny enough, I don't hate it when in the my shows or now playing since I'm thinking about what I'm going to watch and I don't keep track of new shows and such. I DO find it annoying when searching/organizing/downloading as then it gets in the way.
