    I don't have FB. On Twitter, TiVo says it is having a "thing" concerning the future tomorrow on FB Live. The Tweet is messed up in formatting (done by @TiVo_Ted), but two items caught my attention: user accounts and dimming. Also, that's 4:30pm EDT :)

    Anyone who watches, I'm sure TCF members would like to know what is taking so long to release the Mini WiFi adapter and the next TE4 release.

    I just went to Twitter to get a link, and Ted's post has been replaced by one that is pretty but has no text.

    The tweet from Ted had text across the front of the picture. That's where he mentioned the user accounts and dimming. It ran off the right side, so there may have been more. I guess we'll know tomorrow. Maybe he'll drop in here with something. The day is young. He hasn't been here since July 1.

    This is what was deleted from Ted's post:

    New features and a new look are launching soon. Bookmarks, account switching, dark mode, and so much more — before long, you’ll be able to see what’s happening even faster.

    I have no idea why or what it means.

    When I do a search that quote comes up about twitter's redesign which will have account switching, dark mode, etc.

    Sounds like Ted's tweet was a bungled RT from twitter or something like that, not about Tivo. But there is something happening on Facebook tomorrow.

    What did they say? Have not seen a video posted or any facts on what went on. Did anyone watch?

    It's still going, though a phone call meant I only just started watching. Here's the live link:

    Edit: Can we try this?

    Other than an opportunity to win a box, not worth it to anyone even barely familiar with TE4.

    Re: the contest ... watch the vid and take a screenshot when you see a guy holding a TiVo remote; then email the screenshot to social@tivo.com .

    Small tour of the offices and interviewed a few people, then at demo time they showed Autoskip.

    Very "casual" event. Nothing a TCF person would need to watch. Except maybe for the contest for a Bolt + year of service.

    Didn't really get to a lot of questions. I miss Ira's Q&A's. Bring those back occasionally, Ted. :)

    Mostly just walked around and chatted with a few employees, then demo’d AutoSkip and Screen Reader; Ted did clarify that rollback to TE3 was possible, but at the expense of recordings & settings.

    Ted also mentioned that they were starting-up a newsletter, again, and how to subscribe: send an email to social@tivo.com with “newsletter” as its subject.

    Zero mention of streaming box apps or the wireless adapter for Minis.

    Even the contest isn't really that good. A 500GB Bolt with only 1 year of service. I'd enter to win a box with lifetime service, but 1 year of service seems not even worth the effort.
