    Low isn't worthless. Automatic standby is great plus it shouldn't spin down the disk.

    Where is there a guide to what the various power saving settings do?

    Standby didn't used to be "worthless". A TiVo in standby did not record the EAS messages.

    Any word on premiere updates? I should be on the priority list, but haven't seen anything come my way.

    Thank You

    Thanks, but I already looked at the Settings screen, and it says nothing about which choices do and do not spin down the disk drive, or how soon, or how often.

    I already looked at the thread you mentioned — and thanks for providing the link — but it seems like just a lot of speculation. Nothing official. I'm hoping to locate some official information from TiVo Central.

    I have the same question regarding the Mini. While my Roamio Plus got the update weeks ago, my Mini hasn't received it (nor has my Premiere). I believe my Media Access Key is registered for priority updates, which should cover all three of my TiVo units, no?

    We only record three one hour shows per week currently.
    So 3-6 hrs of spinning the HD vs 168 hrs without spindown sounds pretty good to me.

    To light users like us- we may actually be at the point where SSD's could actually work since 24/7 buffering is no longer employed by choice.

    with comcast we have weekly tests, sometimes more. at least now most come between 2am & 6am, but they used to air them throughout the day, multiple times each week, sometimes multiple times each afternoon.

    i eventually wrote complaint emails to the fcc and comcast when actual alerts had become so bad during a few months time span a a year or so ago. one night there were 5 rain warnings in about an hour, almost every ten minutes...during primetime...for thunderstorms - no floods, no tornados, just lightening and rain.

    I thought it used the TSN. Anyhow, my Roamio and Mini received the update on Monday. Only my Premiere is on the hot list and that has been delayed.

    I get one monthly and one weekly. It's by county, so says the message. Philly, being the home of Comcast, probably doesn't have any emergencies anyhow. :D

    Consider yourself lucky. My system runs EAS tests at least 2 times per week in the early morning hours.

    FWIW, my OTA-only 4-tuner Roamio got hit with 20.4.6 this afternoon. I wasn't on the priority list, so this must be the general rollout. Most of my season passes (multiple per show) were converted to single all-channel OnePasses. Season passes that weren't multiple are still single-channel. We'll see how much trouble is caused by poor choice of recording channels with no prioritizing. The most obvious pie in the face so far is having no option to ungroup My Shows. That will probably make watching shows in broadcast order somewhat more cumbersome.

    That explains it, then. Thanks. I'll register my Mini's TSN for priority updating now.

    Just got the update on my Roamio that was not on the priority list. I look forward to playing with it this weekend.
