    TiVoJerry stated in a post in the TivoHD forum that they intend to roll out the update by account - i.e. send the update to all boxes registered to an account as close together as they can.

    Found another cable box bug with S2DT. Two days ago I had two suggestion programs recording at once. One was recording via the internal tuner and a second via the cable box. I went to kill the recording on the internal tuner as it was not anything I was interested in seeing. When I killed the recording, TiVo changed chanels on the cable box to chanel 01 and stopped recording the show it was working on.

    Yesterday, I had another suggestion program recording off of the internal tuner. The 2nd tuner (neither internal nor cable box) was not recording at the time. When I killed the recording the cable box again changed to channel 01.

    The first time I was willing to call it a fluke, but as the behavior is repeating I'm more inclined to call it a bug now.

    Hahahaha... thanks for the laugh... I needed it today.

    It's sort of like putting a note on the mirror in your bathroom: DEAR DENTIST: I have a toothache. Please call me to make an appointment.

    One of my tivos (DT) got the update and the other did not and like everyone else, we lost the ability to transfer shows.

    Another weirdness though... I signed up for the priority list and when I got home last night the single tuner series 2 said pending restart and I restarted it. The system came back really quickly and there was no change in version number.

    I did this a few times with the same results. I forgot to check it this morning, but has anyone else seen this happen?

    When the DT got it, I restarted, and after an hour it was good to go.

    I found a bug since the 9.1 Update. I use the "Serial connector" to change channels and when you change a channel you see the last channel you had on for about 2 sec before you see the channel you switched to. I used to be able correct this problem when I reran my "Serial Setup" but not this time using 9.1. It's aliitle annoying.

    It's even worse. Unfortunately for us, the dentist is walking around with a button on his lapel. The button says: ASK ME IF I GIVE A FLYING F*** ABOUT YOUR PROBLEMS!

    It's sad, and unsurprising, that this update is so buggy.

    That's a gross misstatement. For many of us (I dare say the majority who wouldn't bother posting) this update has been seamless. I've had no problems at all with the update on my S3.

    You haven't noticed a slower UI or the frozen video on 30 second skip? The former may be in my head, but the latter is definitely changed.

    I have a Tivo Series 2. Before the Fall Update I had more than 100 Seasons Passes. Now there are 99. The programs show up in the To Do List but I cannot access them for changes in the Season Pass screen. Also Manual Recordings are not showing up in the Season Pass list but again they are in To Do List and when I add a program to record that conflicts with either a Season Pass that was numbered higher than number 99 or a Manual Recording, I get the conflict message.

    Has TiVo limited number of Season Passes?

    Anyone else having this problem?

    Thanks for any feedback.

    I'm running into that, too, and nothing I've tried has fixed it, either. I'm not just getting blackscreen, either; when the picture comes in, it's weird and jerky and pixelly for several seconds before it stabilizes.

    Addendum to my other post:

    When I go to Browse by Channel, not only does it default back to the lowest-numbered channel every time you exit that screen, but also, if I page to, say, 8pm in channel 2's listings, if I left arrow back to check a different channel, then right arrow to get the listings to pop up, it's no longer at 8pm, it's defaulted back to midnight, or the earliest show listed for that day. Another really annoying change that translates to lots of extra paging down. NOT happy about this!

    Just remember when calling these things bugs that TiVo knows what's good for you. In many cases TiVo may have determined you are better off with the change/"bug."

    If you find one in this thread we'd be better off with, please point it out.

    Some of the "bugs" reported in this thread I will not encounter since I may not use my Tivo in a particular way.

    I have noticed a slight lag in the UI when populating screens, but nothing I would consider alarming. I just got the update, so the Tivo may need time to "sort things out", or at worst, a reboot.

    As for the 30 sec. skip, I use it often and I seem to remember the video freezing before the update as well as after. I haven't noticed a change in this function. :confused:

    I didn't notice this but you're right...

    I thought folks from Tivo monitored this site. Is there a better place to report our problems?

    So I turned my TiVo on today and was informed that the Fall update was downloaded to my TiVo. Great I thought....until I went to watch a 16x9 program that I moved from my computer to my TiVo. Now the aspect ratio is all screwed up.

    Last week I moved a 16x9 program to my TiVo and everything played fine on my wide-screen TV. Today, after recovering that same program from my Deleted Items folder, I notice that the aspect ratio is all messed up. I get black bars on the top and bottom and the picture is elongated on my screen. This never happened before. All my wide-screen shows played perfectly fine.

    Anyone else experiencing the same thing? This is going to be very annoying if it isn't fixed soon.

    Well for the first time ever my living room TiVo locked up! I had to unplug/replug just to get it to reboot. Thanks 9.1! Not to mention the colors went crazy again on my TiVos! At least I know the work around of hitting the TiVo button then live tv button fixes it. The prettier GUI is well worth all these problems wouldn't you say?!
