    The Audio drop-out between TiVo Central and LiveTV seems much shorter.

    For the SF and Chicago markets I guess we have to wait until this evening to see if the SkipMode function shows up?

    Can't wait to give this software update a spin. I wonder if the SD to HD feature needs to be ENABLED on TIVO end before it starts working. Or takes some time to take effect.

    I just noticed. That's one in the plus column.

    Here's a few things I've noticed with this update:
    1. No more audio dropout
    2. Feels faster (I think it actually is, but had no way to measure it)
    3. YouTube loads in just over half the time. (Used to take 10 seconds, now takes 6)
    4. YouTube navigation is quicker.
    5. The HD channel from an SD channel is not working for me.


    Overall, quite happy with this update.

    Agree with 5, disagree with 1.

    I live in Palo Alto, CA. I'm wondering if we will get the skip function as a San Francisco suburb, or if it is limited it SF city limits? Does anyone know? We use Comcast.

    I don't get my Roamio for a few days, but I'm looking forward to testing the ship function if we get it here in Palo Alto!

    My Roamio should arrive on Friday. Can I assume that the software update will be available to everyone by then?

    When do you get the dropouts?

    The only time I have any issue is when changing channels and my receiver has to switch to/from dolby digital/pro logic.
    There used to be a couple second delay when switching from Tivo Central to live tv. That's gone now. (for me)

    Your mileage may vary.

    Guessing you guys are talking about the dropout when going to Tivo central? If so it is better with this release, but still there.

    Updated mine as well. The channel logos are a big relief. My cable company's labeling made the ESPNs and some others a booger to decipher. Now I can just look at the logos. I see where Quickmode can be useful for some things. I do wish there were two levels though

    Thanks for the Release Notes, Margret.

    Also, like others, I'm looking forward to having SkipMode - hopefully the nationwide rollout to Roamio's isn't too far away. I'm sure no one would complain if TiVo went ahead and enabled it nationwide for the Priority List. :)

    I think the dropout going from TC or other menu (except the guide) is smaller.

    I've had two dropouts when watching normal channels that were not there when I did a rewind. I was waiting to check this.

    Not that it matters, but my video issues seem to have been fixed today also. I lost two channels while they were working on the problem and they work great now. This was before the update.

    Joe,

    So you are still seeing the "Odd Audio Dropouts" we've been dealing with here?

    Correct. No quantitative figures, but I've had two. I'm not watching TV right now. We'll see how tonight goes. Holiday is over. It was hard, but I didn't buy that 4k TV I was looking at for a week. Maybe next year. That assumes I can give away three Sony 32" panels I have now. :)

    Well at least a good data point to know it hasn't been fixed. Thanks for the update.

    I agree with all except the audio dropout is still there however it's like a sec if that now. The preimer switching from tv to guide to tv is sluggish. Might clear up. Only one of my minis got the update but not sure what it changed as the mini had the logos and quick play. Tuned to fox in sd as well as cbs and tnt and never got a message to watch in HD. I'm on Mediacom.

    Restarting now.

    I could see why it might take another connection to get the SD to HD functionality to work. I would give it a day or so.
