    Do you have an Elite or are you P/PXL?

    Must be P/PXL, as the shipping level of code on an Elite is 14.9b

    Then if someone has 14.9a on non-elite they must either be in a beta or they started a rollout of 14.9.

    It does seem unlikely, but certainly within the realm of possibility.

    Not a hoax. I was told by TIVO tech support to force my TIVO online to receive this update as I was having some issues that they thought it would correct.

    So, do you actually have 14.9a on your box? What issues that you had does support think 14.9a will fix?

    Yes, after 3 forced connections it appeared.

    I was having a problem where the menus in the HD interface would freeze for about 30 sec or so. If I was watching something off the external HD box it would cause the box to become "unpaired" losing the content on that box and any programs on the main box that were shared between them.

    Now in waiting mode to see if it happens again. Did not occur that often, but when it did might loose 70% of more of my recorded shows.

    Well, so far then you are the first reported non-Elite user with 14.9a. Do you see anything new? Has it resolved your problem?

    Now you just need to describe these issues in sufficient detail so the rest of us can call support because we're experiencing the same ... ummm ... "issues"

    Has the interface performance changed at all in your estimation? Does the HDUI seem to be running faster?

    same, if a limited roll out has started others would be reporting it by now.

    What's the exact version (as it appears in the system info screen)? Should be something like 14.9a-01-2-746.

    I thought that shows were striped across multiple drives, and you weren't watching on one drive or other other..

    I was told to force and would get the update too, but haven't gotten it yet.

    Knuckles, what was the issue that you were having where they told you to force a connection to get 14.9a?

    I had times where there was nothing in My Shows, and times where certain shows were missing. Some of my season passes had not descriptions, just channels and time. When they recorded you could see they were recording, but they didn't display under My Shows. When I switched off the groups, I could then see them. The tech told me to force a few connections and I would get the update. I forced and had a long update like there was new software, but after a reboot I was still on 14.8.

    yesterday when I forced a connection just for haha's to see if anything was there and I had a long update as well. The loading info part took 45 minutes to count from 1 to 100 %.

    I thought for sure I was pulling something but nothing.

    I wonder if the box actually did grab software, as that's how long it took, but is not ready to install yet. No pending restart or rebooting didn't install anything.


    I wonder if a kickstart software reinstall would install something newer.


    My experience has always been when a loading info takes that long there is a software update, but there wasn't. So I'm wondering if tivo is actually up to something sneaky, such as sending the software out, but haven't flagged it for an install yet. Maybe to update all boxes at the same time?

    I highly doubt it though.

    No, that isn't possible. If you have a large lineup (like digital cable), it isn't uncommon for the connection to take a long time. If you don't see pending restart, then a new update has not been pushed to your box.

    In fact, TiVo would not want all boxes updating at the same time. This is why they do rollouts so there aren't support nightmares.
