    Later today we will begin authorizing boxes to receive the 20.5.6 software update. The update will go to TiVo Premiere, TiVo Roamio, TiVo BOLT, and TiVo Mini boxes over the next month. There is still time to sign your box up at www.tivo.com/priority if you want to be one of the first to receive it.

    Here are some of the changes in this release:

    - TiVo Roamio boxes will receive QuickMode. (QuickMode is already available on TiVo BOLT and TiVo Mini. QuickMode is not supported on TiVo Premiere.) QuickMode plays video at 1.3x normal speed with pitch-corrected audio. To turn QuickMode ON, press PLAY while watching video, and then SELECT.

    - TiVo Roamio boxes (and their connected TiVo Mini boxes) IN SELECT MARKETS (currently San Francisco and Chicago) will receive SkipMode. (SkipMode is already available on TiVo BOLT and their connected TiVo Mini boxes in all markets.) When shows are marked with the SKIP icon, SkipMode allows users to quickly resume their show during a commercial break by pressing the D button or CHAN UP.

    - TiVo Roamio and TiVo Premiere boxes will now display Channel Logos in the Guide. (TiVo BOLT and TiVo Mini boxes already display Channel Logos.) To turn off channel logos, press the A button when looking at the Guide and change the “Show channel logos” option.

    - When watching an SD channel, and an HD channel is available, a “Watch in HD” banner will appear, and pressing the D button will tune to the HD channel.

    - OTA channel scanning is now about twice as fast.

    - fixed an intermittent issue where the box would become unresponsive in live TV

    - fixed an intermittent issue where HDMI was “not permitted” after a software update

    - fixed some YouTube playback performance issues

    Can you tell us why SkipMode is only available in those two markets when it's available nationwide on the Bolt? Is it just a marketing thing? Or is there some sort of licensing/legal issue?

    And sadly no fix for the audio dropouts? Guessing we have to put up with it until the Spring update.

    Since I knew it was coming, I watched. Took a long time to download, the "loading..." jumped in 15% increments. Power cycle right now. It's my way, sorry if offends anyone.

    I'd sign up for priority if Skipmode was nationwide on the roamio. Already have tried out Quickmode and logos on the mini and don't feel the need to rush.

    Much appreciated. Perhaps the lineup issue web site could have an option to report incorrect logos? I have two or three that are wrong. Obviously this is a cable problem, but MSNBC, TBS and HDNET are wrong for me. Thanks. You're doing a great job.

    Seems the people who code the program guide don't talk to the people who do other program internal displays. We have a "new" icon battle brewing. :rolleyes:

    Oh, 20.5.6.RC14-USA-6-846. Really?

    Tivo Central looking normal now, had to make a second service connection to get the Logos to appear- they were enabled after the update but did not appear.


    Real Nice!

    On my Basic I had to wait a couple minutes for the logos to show. Not sure I like them yet.

    However, the Watch in HD isn't working on either box. We have plenty of premium and non premium channels that have both SD and HD (who doesn't on Comcast right!!). I get no notice on the SD version to watch in HD.

    Actually, these were scheduled by TiVo. However, twice in one day did give it away. One of my Premieres is also getting it. The other will wait until tomorrow morning.

    Definitely would like to know this as well. Joe is lucky. I have at least 50 that are missing/wrong. I think mainly because my cable system shortens many of the common call letters in order to add "D" or "HD" to the end. I can even give you the actual logo PNG files, as I had them all correct on my old WMC system, many of which I made myself starting with other files from various sources.

    My Youtube seems like it's working again. I do here an occasional pop in the audio, but this could be content. I'll test more.

    Anyone else able to test to see if the Watch in HD is working for them? Isn't working for me.
