    When im used to messing around in the premiere menu, then go to the room where the series 3 hd is, there is no comparison on how fast the menu is (the series 3 takes miliseconds where the premiere takes seconds to navigate.)

    It isn't until this point you realize just how slow the menu's are in premiere. The menu takes several seconds to refresh the page where its usable as we all know, and it does this for every single level, and even if you go back, waiting on the preview panels.

    Let's hope thats fixed in the next release. Not caching content, how did it make it out the door without something that basic? No wonder the unit is so slow can you imagine the hit the servers take if all of us are surfing our menu's and nothing is being cached locally? The more premieres out int he world i bet the worse its going to get.

    That's the reason many switch to the classic interface on the Premiere. It is even faster than the Series3.

    Performance of the HDUI must improve significantly it TiVo expects that to be a selling point. The only thing worse than a SDUI is a slow HDUI.

    Green with envy? :rolleyes:

    When they make the Premiere compelling enough many of us will simply upgrade to it. It's not there yet though.

    Anyone who doubts Steve Jobs' reasons for avoiding flash, just try out a TiVo Premiere in HD and then SD menu modes! I HATE flash in every medium... I'd be thrilled to see it become completely extinct. Apple essentially completely rejecting it will help push it in that direction, I hope.

    i would love them if they were as fast as the SD menus. As of now, I'm stuck with SD.

    You just need more processing power. No issues with PCs and flash. Hopefully if they implement the second core and they optimize it for two cores, it should be much faster.

    The issue isn't processing power, it's the efficiency of flash itself. It's a resource hog. This makes it slower than the alternative frameworks, no matter what platform you're running.

    When attempting to enter text for a You Tube search, the HDUI is so laggy and frustrating that I have to wait a few seconds before I can enter the next letter. Or I could keep entering commands on the remote and then a few seconds later the HDUI will do a catch up.
