    Wow...TiVo is now using a different font for the version number. I guess they're typing up the system info in MS Office using Comic Sans now. ...and I thought TiVo was all Linux based. Maybe they're really running Windows Vista in the new version. That will be SO much better than Linux. It will be completely problem free now. [/sarcasm]

    I think they've just given up. They know the community no longer takes their ability to make meaningful software updates seriously, and that's why they started using Comic Sans to illustrate their place in the world.

    14.9 also adds new startup text in Comic Sans while it's booting. Here are the screen shots of the ones that appear after "Almost there, just a few minutes more".

    On a serious note, 14.9 is now rolling out to Premiere boxes on RCN. Not sure why we haven't heard anything for SA customers.

    Maybe so RCN customers can test it first, then it can be released to us?

    Still no screen shot by the OP.

    Time for everyone to move on. Nothing to see here.

    I would think it would be the other way around since it is much easier for TiVo to deploy updates to stand alone users. They really can't afford to have any major issues with RCN. Although I guess the user base is so small it could make sense.

    RCN needs it first since it adds streaming support based off the RCN posts. RCN is launching the Q/Preview over the next week.

    They should add a footnote on Tivo's retail packaging that "by purchasing this box, you are Tivo's least important customer"

    What a fortunate coincidence! Thumbnumbitus usually clears after about a 2 week period. I can go back to forcing connections.

    With the remotes able to control via the network, can someone develop a macro/widget/program to automate this? Thumbnumbitus is a preventable condition.

    This might even be a better plan than my remote control manipulating robot.

    No, I'm still going to go with the robot for the long-term daily update solution.

    Makes sense to me. They are rolling 14.9 out to RCN over the next two weeks and then I would imagine they would start 14.9 for the Premieres after that.

    Oh, you're a hardware person. That can work.

    Hardware is the necessary evil that allows my software to run.
