    We are in the process of authorizing TiVo Premiere households that signed up for the Priority List to receive 20.4.6aRC1. It should be available by the end of the day.

    Here are some other changes in the release:

    - OnePass replaces Season Pass

    - Ability to add a link to a streaming movie and have it appear in the “Streaming Movies” folder in My Shows

    - Updated Amazon Instant Video app (with Amazon Prime) will be available on TiVo Premiere boxes
    Note: It may take 24-48 hours for the app to appear after the update.

    - If you are running the 3.5 or later version of the TiVo app for iOS, you will be able to “move” shows that were recorded on your DVR from copy-protected channels. (Once the download has been completed, the original recording will be deleted from your DVR. Downloads must be initiated while on your home network.)

    - Additional screens are now available in “HD Menus” style: “Find by Time”, and “Find by Channel”. They are located under TiVo Central > Manage Recordings & OnePass.

    - Amazon Instant Video now appears alongside other apps in My Shows

    - Fixed the issue where some Mini customers would see a V87 error when they tried to watch an episode that was still recording on the DVR

    - Fixed an issue where some customers would see a blue spinning circle when trying to create or update a Season Pass (now OnePass)

    - Fixed an issue where duplicate recordings were happening when a user deleted a single episode from a Season Pass (now OnePass) and created a manual recording instead

    - Fixed a problem where modifying a Season Pass in SD menus would set it to record on “all channels"

    - Addressed an issue with SDV related to a specific operator configuration. (This is the only difference between 20.4.6 and 20.4.6aRC1.)

    For those not on the priority list, I expect the full rollout to be complete on Premiere by the middle of March.

    Up Next: Our 2015 Spring release will make VUDU available on Premiere boxes.

    Great since I signed up very early I hope I am one of the ones that get it today. If not I will wait :). Ever since I replaced the master bedroom with a XL4 from a mini my wife asks me "I thought you said I was going to be able to use amazon with this". And I say soon.

    This release does have additional performance improvements. We made changes to My Shows when adding OnePass that make it faster.

    the priority page took my 2 premiere TSN's twice once at the beginning and the other time was before the premiere update was pulled. Hope it comes soon.

    I checked when I got home it made a call at 405 which was 40 min before I got home and no update was pending. I'll check later tonight.

    If you reenter your TSN, the Priority page does not tell you if it is already in the database.

    it used to hope the TSN(boxes) don't go to the back of the line so to speak instead of being one of the first it goes to being one of the last before the general rollout.

    I got the new Amazon app with prime before my premieres got the RC1 update. Strange.

    I also got the new app for Amazon and do not see any slowness from watching it on Tivo vs a PC.

    I just forced an update at 8pm PST and my Premiere says Pending Restart. Will reboot after Gotham is done recording. :)

    No luck for me this evening. I signed up early on. Any idea how long we should expect it to take to hit everyone on the priority list?

    I'm one of those lamenting the loss of ungrouping the My Shows list in the HDUI, so I've switched my Premiere XL4 to SD Menus to ungroup the list.

    http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?t=525757

    However, when new programs begin recording or transferring, the summary screen shifts left with no user input then the entire list shifts down causing the highlight bar to lose its place.

    Sadly, this bug has been present for over two years (since v20.2.2), but hopefully there will be enough HDUI users switching to SD Menus to get the "ungrouping" feature back and complain so TiVo engineers finally address it.
