    Patch is going to be delayed for a while. A bug has been discovered where you would change channels and the wrong channel would come up. This has only affected a small portion of the beta boxes in the LA market, but it was significant enough to cause the patch to be pushed out. Code is being sent back to Tivo for revision and then it will be resubmitted for testing again.

    How ironic this happened when the FFWD Ad program was announced.

    Since the only real improvement with 6.2 is folders, they can take as long as they want.

    Having folders is actually a really nice feature. Also, the speed improvement
    is very noticeable (especially using the channel guide).

    Well I guess I can hack and add it manually, I wanted to add a large drive so I was looking forward to the LBA48 support. Maybe I'll just go ahead and throw 4.0 on it then I won't have to worry about those pop up ads and I'll have network support and LBA48.

    Guess I'll have to sweet talk my server friends at work :)

    Would you rather have a steaming pile in January or something that actually switches to the correct channel in June?

    You can have folders, or at least similar groupings already with a simple code that's found on these very boards.

    6.2 can wait, I'm happy and content with what I have now.

    How can you have similar features as folders with the older software?

    4.x which was only released on the standalone boxes actually works on the DirecTiVo series 2 machines. 4.x has folders.

    I don't believe a word of it. We all know what this is about. The bond is broken.

    Now, where was that article about Comcast and Tivo? Must be prepared...

    Why can't the idiots that program this stuff discover such bugs before it rolls out in the first place. Seems there is nearly 6 months from when you first hear of a new "upgrade" and the time you actually get it. And all for what? Not much improvement or fixes in any newer version I've seen.

    Don't do much computer programming do you? The bugs come out in useage, sometimes in some machines and not others, sometimes under very specific circumstances. The only real way to find them is extensive use. Be glad that they are doing this right.

    Very true and insightful statement, dtremain. Couldn't have said it better myself.

    Of course, I'm a programmer... :)
