    Funny how their own chart does not include the series numbering information, yet their TiVo+ announcement used the term "Series 6". It's like the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing. (Also, the left hand probably meant to write "Series 6 and later", but that's another discussion.)

    In System Information, why no space between Series and the number? More weird things.

    Companies need to adopt standard terminology and stick to it. Even a small difference like that can hurt search engine optimization and marketing results, and adversely impact translation and localization for global markets (because without guidance vendors may translate "Series 6", but just copy "Series6" which many users won't be able to read).

    TiVo_Ted said a few days ago that it was being taken off-of-sale until the current cable issue with it is fixed.

    Tuning adapters aren't working, but apparently they figured it out.

    Does Dobly Vision work with Sony TV? XBR-940E.

    Depends on the model. It's in new high-end Sony models, and it was added as a firmware update to other recent permium Sony models, but if made before 2016 it's unlikely to ever get that update. My big Sony is older than that, is not an Android model, and came with Dolby Digital, Digital Plus, and Pulse, but probably won't get further updates. However I've recently added an Anthem preamp which does support Dolby Vision.

    That model received Dolby Vision in a January 2018 firmware update. So if you've kept it updated, you've got it.

    Sorry that is incorrect. I read more about it. Tivo Edge doesn't support the Dolby Vision level 5 profile yet which is used by the Sony TV. So for now, I will wait till TiVo updates the edge with full support DV on Sony TV before I order it

    My statement is not incorrect. The TiVo EDGE is incorrect. :)

    Probably but the Tivo_Ted guy mentioned in the other thread that the Edge will support Sony TV low profile DV. They have the firmware and are testing it. Will see. Apple took less than a week to issue the new firmware so I don't think it will take TiVo too long.

    I suspect you're correct but not based on what Apple did. It took OPPO months to support Profile 5 via YCC. Apple always used Profile 5 -- initially via RGB. If TiVo is sensibly using Profile 5/RGB Sony users can hope for a speedy update. If they used Profile 4 it could be more challenging. But it all depends on various things.
