    I have a Sony receiver and this has always happened to me. I thought it was just the optical cable re-synching to the audio stream from the TiVo. I generally have to hit instant replay a couple of times to get it back.

    At every release, this question comes up, and the only answer we get, if any, is "policy". Yes, it would take effort to come up with a public list that didn't reveal unannounced functionality that would appear in internal release notes, but the lack of release notes with bug fixes is a bit unexpected given the normal industry practice. :rolleyes:

    Oh yeah... cosmetic thing when viewing wishlists - it shows what should be a lone & character as &, when showing the terms and any category lists.

    I don't know if "not responding to over half of keypresses" is a feature...but the little light on the front indicates it received the signal...but it does nothing. And the menus are S-L-O-W...and take FOREVER to draw. This is especially true with Now Playing. Nothing hacked, nothing special, just a regular Series 3. Just got the update today and am not happy :(

    Be aware that Tivo may need to reindex guide data after the update, causing reduced performance for ~48 hours.

    Here's a "new" feature for your list. There is now a TiVo-Slow shortcut which takes you into the Messages and Settings menu. At the main menu hit the slow button.


    * - I say "new" since it's actually a resurrection of an old shortcut, but the old one took you directly into the System Info screen.

    Good find! I go into Messages & Settings quite often so this will be useful, thanks!

    Does this update enable the e-sata for series 3 HD?

    If not, anyone know when this will officially be supported?

    I hope it doesn't mess up what we already have when it's enabled.

    DEAR TIVO ENGINEERING:

    RE: MRV PROBLEM - BOX UNABLE TO SOURCE TO MORE THAN ONE OTHER BOX

    If anyone from TiVo is interested I've written a detailed description of the problem I've been complaining about complete with screen photos, detailed equipment descriptions, hookup info and what I've tried to do to resolve the problem.

    Contact me by PM and I'd be pleased to email a PDF of the report to you.

    This is really annoying. Thankfully, the actual skipping hasn't been slowed down, only the display of the image, but it's still a pain.

    It seems like these releases are never quite right...

    I've had SP channel remapping problems since 9.1 showed up and also, whenever I reenter the SP list, it now always takes me to the first entry regardless of where I was in the list the last time I was there. Not everybody is seeing this, but I have a lot of entries in the SP list .. 74.

    I posted my issues in this thread:

    I have noticed stale video images. The first time I noticed it was when watching a TivoCast and then watching another TiVoCast program, if I go to watch another TiVoCast program I see a stale image (of the last program I watched) for a fraction of a second before the video changes to the current program I am watching. I can reproduce this as well over and over again by opening a TiVoCast watching part it and then watching a different one.

    Anyone else noticing this problem? This is on my Series 3

    I also notice the 30 sec skip issue.

    I just got the 9.1 two days ago and I HATE the manual recording screen redo.

    For those of you who haven't seen it, let me walk you through the old way / new way:

    OLD WAY:

    - Go to FIND PROGRAMS / MANUAL RECORD / BY TIME & CHANNEL / FAVORITE CHANNELS
    - Scroll up/down to date, scroll up/down to channel, then you can scroll up/down to a specific timeslot.
    - **** then you can press the back button, change channels, and the program listing is updated for the new channel _AT THE SAME TIME SECTION THAT YOU JUST USED_.
    - This way, you can browse quickly through all the channels to see what's on at 9pm for the next 2 weeks.

    NEW WAY:
    - Go to FIND PROGRAMS / MANUAL RECORD / BY TIME & CHANNEL / FAVORITE CHANNELS
    - Scroll up/down to date, scroll up/down to channel, then you can scroll up/down to a specific timeslot. Notice that the program guide always begins at midnight of the day that you selected.
    - When you press the back button to change channels, the program listing resets back to midnight on the new channel, forcing you to scroll through the days' programming.
    - This way, you can NOT browse through all the channels to see what's on at 9pm for the next 2 weeks without having to scroll through an entire day for each channel that you're looking at.

    Does anyone have a way to report this as a bug, or is there a reasonable workaround/fix for this way-too-annoying "feature" that obviously didn't go through enduser QA usability testing?

    I would suspect manual recording is not used often if ever by most which is why this and other issues related to manual recordings cropped up. I use it only sparingly for shows where guide data is messed up and I would otherwise end up with a zillion repeats of the show - those shows are on same schedule every day so perfect for repeat manual recordings.
    Sounds like you use manual recordings a lot? Any specific reason why?

    Manuals are often useful with sports, esp. where there are overlaping events or the TiVo dictated 1/1.5/3hr extensions don't fit the bill.

    Try setting up a recording for a show that's on 9:00 PM a week from next Wednesday with the guide. You can do it but you'll have a sore thumb.

    He was referring to the browse by channel menu, not the VCR style recording setup.

    Anyone else noticed that Amazon Unbox downloads now are in a "Amazon Unbox" folder AND also in the main list (the same way a HD recording is in both the HD folder and the main list)? At least that's how it is for my download of "Disturbia", and I don't remember it being this way before. Seems like overkill to me...

    They also seem to have moved all the text on the screen to the left in order to fit in the "Amazon Unbox" logo to the right (where the channel logos are). This seems to have resulted in less space for the title of a recording, though I can't verify that.
