    Isn't that the same as Margret fixing the problem?

    And she did fix a captioning problem I discovered after some update years ago. I reported it in a thread, she replied to me in a PM, and a slipstream update fixed it fairly quickly. I call that "Margret fixing a problem".

    I hope he's not on the forum because he's busy or something with potential updates.

    I'm still hoping Hydra is still going to be optional. I have zero intention of switching. TiVo Will Redesign Guide (to sell ads) has be a bit worried. Was hoping he'd comment on this.

    I haven’t gone anywhere! I’ve been working on a few hot things internally and haven’t had a chance to breathe. I’ll try to jump into a few conversations today and see where I can help. I still care!

    Glad to see you're vertical and doing OK. Do remember to breathe though. Very important.

    We still have no plans to require customers to upgrade to TE4. However, I can tell you that more than 50% of our eligible installed base are now running TE4, with fewer than 1,000 downgrades. And before you say it, yes I understand that downgrading is very painful so these 2 stats don't exactly compare. However, we continue to monitor feedback on TE4 and have plans to continually address user concerns. Updates to the mini guide, My Shows, etc. are all examples of this.

    That's actually really good uptake for Hydra/Mira. I'm kind of shocked by those numbers. I would have guessed it would be much lower. I really hope we are never forced to upgrade, but if we ever are forced to upgrade, having a live guide option is absolutely vital (see that dead horse over there....yeah, I just beat it).

    Plus, the back-burnered/2nd-cousin PC-->TiVo box transfer capability?

    Considering at least 3 cable companies just switch to Hydra, I am not surprised

    I was only reporting on direct, retail customers. I have no idea what the take-rate is for TE4 on the MSO side of things.

    Thanks for all you do Ted, glad you are still here!

    BTW, I noticed on the new 4k firestick, there's an option for which OTA DVR you want to choose. Of course the only option is the Fire TV Recast, BUT- and a big butt :D , there is the option to choose another if there were to be one. Hopefully maybe possibly the Tivo OTA can be another choice.

    We're going to need some inside information on upcoming deals. I have a friend who just installed an antenna and he needs a lot of inexpensive Roamios.

    Interesting numbers on the retail side (and thanks for providing them)! I'm with some of the others here that I would want PC to TiVo show transfer capabilities restored before looking at upgrading (if you have any input into that). Not sure if the Live Guide would be an issue with us as although we are use to it after 18 years, we just don't use the guide much at all.

    TE4 - I used to be able to upload content to my Tivo using TivoDesktop and push capability, or pyTivo and pull capability. Would like to see either of these features restored!
