Arrow Tivo 20.4.2 Summer Release

I stumbled across this in Twitter by accident.
http://www.tivo.com/priority_20_4_2

Margret has announced they are taking the TSN for the next release very shortly.

Never mind, this was already posted by the group earlier today. : )

Just wondering . . . why would anyone rush to get on a priority list for an update with no clue about what it updates? Has Tivo published a summary of the changes anywhere?

Who's "in a rush"? Just because it's a priority list doesn't mean anyone's "in a rush"....

Someone needs to brush up on their definitions of "priority."

Standard def..........the right to take precedence or to proceed before others

Seems pretty clear to me.....huh?

Maybe clear to you....just because someone signs a priority list doesn't mean they're "in a rush"....I don't believe your "definition" indicated someone is in a rush In a rush indicates great urgency. Precedence does not...

If you wanna keep splitting hairs, be my guest....but I'm through.

Odd, with the latest download a TiVo with lifetime or evaluation will do manual recording again even without a current TV guide download. (not that most anyone would have a use for such a feature ) With the last software it screamed for a connection all the time and wouldn't do any recording. Now I am wondering if TiVos without service with do manual recording without a subscription like some of the old Series 1s will do. (if I remember correctly ) I will have to hook a unsubbed Premier up and test it. Odd that they would change that back to how it was before.

Got an email from TiVo with the following info:



Hi xxxxxx,

Within the next few weeks, your TiVo Premiere DVR is scheduled to automatically receive the Summer 2014 software update, including new features, a new design and an enhanced TiVo experience.

Updated, modern design: Premiere’s HD interface has a fresh, new look and feel
Zippier performance within TiVo menus: Navigate through menus quicker so you can find what you want faster
New categories in My Shows: Categories in My Shows automatically organize your recordings by genre so you can find a recording faster than ever

These new features are available solely when using HD menus. If you’re not using HD menus yet, switch by going to TiVo Central > Settings & Messages > Settings > Displays > Choose TiVo Menus.

Also, this update has it's own webpage. Hoping the "zippier performance" is really noticeable on the Premiere. Sadly, no mention of Amazon Prime Streaming.

http://www.tivo.com/serviceupdates

Also, this feature is not listed in the email quoted above but is in the website:

On-demand and web app options now in Guide: You're no longer limited to live TV when browsing the Guide. With on-demand and web app options now included, browse shows from yesterday, today or tomorrow and watch them anytime with the click of a button.

I look forward to better performance on the XL4. Crossing my fingers for a faster experience.

I'm also looking forward to zippier performance. I picked up an Amazon Fire TV recently, and this little box puts all other TV boxes to shame! It's speed is amazing. I've also played a bit with a newer Samsung TV with a quad core processor in it (similar to the Fire TV processor). I hope the next box TiVo puts out has a similar processor. There's no need to put up with this lagging and slowness in today's electronic equipment IMHO.

I don't there's going to be a "next box".

As to the Summer update? The only feature I'm really interested in right now is Folders for different users (aka my Kids). Until they do that, I can't use a Roamio as a whole family DVR.

Do you mean that you doubt there is going to be a next box? You think the roamio is going to be the last?

Since the last update things have been very slow and our premiere locks up and restarts frequently. Any chance that this update will improve performance or stability is well worth the risk of being an early adopter. It can't get much worse than it is now, so bring on the update!

We've had month-to-month Tivo service for nearly three years now, and this update will determine if we try for $99 lifetime or part ways with Tivo.

That's what I've read on the Roamio Forum. As far as I know they are getting out of the Hardware business and want to focus on software.

Sounds about right—I just signed up for priority update after getting the email about the update today. So if general release is coming that soon then priority has to be now or very soon.

It was a pretty quick update considering the Premiere's menu is completely reskined. I like the new font choice (compared to the old Premiere version). Seems easier to read.

Sure hope they fix the bug where a duplicate recording is created if you try to change recording options of a show in a season pass/wishlist. This is annoying. Goes without saying that more speed is always welcome.
