    Later tonight we will begin updating TiVo Roamio, TiVo Premiere, and TiVo Mini boxes with the 20.4.4 "Fall Update". There is still time to request an early update at tivo.com/priority. Customers that don't request a priority update will be automatically updated near the end of this month.

    Here are some of the changes:
    - You can set a Season Pass to record on all channels, instead of just one
    - You can set up a Season Pass even if there is no episode airing in the next two weeks. (Shows may appear in Search up to six months before they first air.)
    - New Home Shopping Network app in Apps & Games
    - Updated Spotify app with an enhanced playlist and new look (in Music & Photos)
    - Fixed the bug where Panel model would reset to Full mode after a restart
    - Fixed a problem where some deleted shows never left the "Recently Deleted" folder
    - Note: this release is required in order to use Android Streaming once the new Android App is released (expected at the end of this month)

    I am expecting one more update this year, most likely in late November.

    Thanks I am definitely excited about the new season pass options.

    Does this also address the reboots some of us have had randomly since the last update?

    I'm inclined to think Vudu will show up before the November update. Based on nooneuknow's posts, it's probably already in the current Tivo software.

    I think Amazon Prime will be the big news of the November update.

    I can stop using the trick of using a wishlist, and then switch over to a season pass within two weeks then. :)

    I also wish when you're going through the deleted folder list and do something with one of them it stays there, instead of snapping back up to the top. When you have around 800 programs in there, that's a big pain in the backside.

    +1 for season pass features (all channels and 6 months ahead)!

    Thanks Margaret!

    these will all be very useful to operation and welcomed, thanks for the improvements and the "heads up"...signed up and waiting for the priority list upgrades to begin! :)

    margret - will you be starting a "release notes" thread in the premiere forum?

    When can we get the actual Stream updated itself?

    If not, I'd just uncheck the SD version of the channel in the channel lineup. This way only the HD channel is available to choose from. Much easier.

    This is not necessary anymore since the Premiere and Roamio share the same UI.

    yes, understood, but this thread is in the roamio forum, where premiere users might not think to look.

    also, i know it seems redundant, but the hardware is different, and each might react differently to the same software - like the same software might react unexpectedly on different computers.

    I understand what you mean, it needs to be posted in both threads because Premiere users may not check the Roamio threads same as Roamio users may not check the Premiere threads.

    Looking at Margret's post count, she's not on the forum that much. About five times since the summer update. Same goes for her Twitter page. Either she does not have much time or she may have more important things to do.

    One main problem with both the Roamio and Premiere threads is every time someone has a problem they start a new thread instead of posting the issue in Margret's update thread. It gets very difficult to keep track of issues.

    It is probably easier on Margret to have one master thread to cover each update.

    Not always an option. For example I get Fox Sports 1 in HD and Fox Sports 2 in SD only and the same with History channel and H2 which is SD only.
