    Update - My Premiere just re-updated sometime around 4 AM from 20.7.2.RC22 to 20.7.2.RC24, and now the menus are sluggish and slow to respond to button presses. RC22 had actually sped up menu responsiveness, now it's even slower than it was before RC22 arrived last month. I hope this is just temporary while the new software settles in.

    Got this update last night. Will take some getting used to. I don't like how much white there is. That's not attractive for night-time viewing. Oh well. Not like I can do anything about it.:(

    I concur, can't stand the white, incredibly annoying.

    I hope you all send your feedback directly to Tivo. I just sent a email via their contact page requesting a change to something better than bright white.

    So did none of you "it burns my eyes!!!!" folks have or see a Bolt? this has been the Bolt color scheme since day one.
    I honestly don't care, white/yellow, it generally works the same and has a Tivo LiveGuide so I'm good with it.

    A good point (or viewing in a darker room).

    But yes, you indeed can let TiVo know. Maybe it can throw some grey into the white, toning things down while still being professional and "cool."

    I think I see the problem. All white has become brighter. With the HD menus, they have reduced the font so the change isn't too bad. But there are a lot (most) of Premiere menus that are still SD. The older fatter font and increased brightness is quite bright. If you have your Premiere set to all SD menus, it must be really bad.

    I think the new monochrome scheme is ugly, but I can deal with it for the most part. What I can't deal with is that they gave absolutely no thought to some of the screens like captions settings. If you highlight any light grey text, the white highlight makes it completely unreadable. All other text colors get reversed when highlighted, but not this one. I put that squarely in the bug category. I would be fired if my software went out like that. Well maybe not fired, but I'd never live it down.

    And no, I've never seen a Bolt. This update makes me glad I never bought one. I'll hold my nose until Hydra.

    Judging from the public screenshots of the hydra interface I've seen I'd vote for this format that some folks seem to think is horrible, me? it looks just like my Bolts, totally NBD in my book.

    At least on Hydra, light grey text changes to dark grey when highlighted in white. This is Programming 101 level stuff.

    Called TiVo yesterday transferring a Roamio Basic lifetime service. While I was on phone I inquired about SkipMode on Premieres. I can confirm NO 746 PREMIERES two tuner Premieres get SkipMode! Only some of the four tuner models. Direct from TiVo!

    And you actually believe that a Tivo CSR knows anything about a Premiere (much less any Tivo in general)?

    Every time i called them about an issue they have been lacking the necessary knowledge and have always been wrong. Seriously. I can't remember how many times they said "Your hard drive has gone bad" when i've called about various problems over the years (it wasn't my hard drive). Or when they say to "clear and delete" or "rerun Guided Setup" that of course never fixes the problem. Or all the times TCF members call to report a widespread issue that several members are having and they said they aren't aware of such an issue. And it's even worse since Rovi has taken over and moved support overseas where the CSRs have probably never even seen a Tivo in person ha ha.

    I have very little faith in Tivo Support.
