Advertisements I'm new here, so please forgive me if this has been brought up before. But has anyone organized a letter writing / phone calling / attention-getting campaign to get release notes? Tivo is a software company, and software companies should provide release notes. If we tried to release software to our client without release notes, we'd be fired. Not that I want to "fire" Tivo (I sort of want to marry it), but I do want some release notes. In fact, I kind of feel like it should be illegal for software to be upgraded on any device -- especially an upgrade we can't opt-out of -- without accurate release notes being distributed to the user. And this portion of the post at "showthread.php?p=5604258&&#post5604258" (sorry, I'm too new to make URLs) by TivoPony has me incensed : "Sorry if that bothers some" and "We do what we can" are particularly infuriating. I don't care about what the average Tivo subscriber wants. Tivo's gotten several "average" subscribers because of me- I've pimped them pretty hard to my friends, family, and coworkers (and the occasional random person on the subway, but I'm not sure if he subscribed). The least they can do is give me release notes. I'm sure they're using version control/change request management software-- pull the changes from those tools and give them to us. Anyway, I am now attempting to redirect my anger from TivoPony to something more productive. What if we all called their customer support and sent a polite (was "an angry") letter each time there was a release? Also, everyone with a blog could write an angry article about this situation, and we could all vote for the blog article(s) (or maybe just vote for the best written blog article) on digg (or wherever) to get more attention. Ideally, we could get some podcasters to mention the cause as well. So, would this be pointless? We need to be noisy outside this forum in order to get change implemented. I'm not sure we could make a difference, but it seems like we should try. Unless you've all already done something like this and gotten nowhere.
