SD has sucked for at least 5-7 years
This may seem like a silly question, but will MRS work with the SDUI? MRS is the feature I will miss most about DirecTV when I am finished switching to Tivo, but, if I could get it on Premier, it might be worth trying the new boxes out. My concerns are:
1. Will the OTA tuner work well enough?
2. If the HDUI is too slow, will all the regular Tivo functions, including MRS work in the SDUI?
I got the new 20.2 update yesterday evening. So far it is a lot faster and exceptionable to me. I been one critic about the Slow HDUI but if it does not slow down in the next week I'll change my view.
Well, I picked up a Premier from BB to try out. Signal strength is not nearly as good as on my HD Tivos. Does the 20.2 update address the OTA reception issues at all?
I think it's been pointed out here that "signal strength" is a somewhat arbitrary number that is not necessarily comparable from one model to another. What counts is the number of reception errors, especially the number of uncorrected errors since those result in picture glitches. IOW, if there are in fact reception issues, you can't tell it by looking at the "signal strength" numbers.
i thought id throw my 2 cents in here too. i hated how slow the HDUI was when i got ym first premiere. BUT after using it for the last year, you just get used to it. DOes it break the experience? No. Will it ever stop my from buying another premiere? No. Will it stop me from recommending it to someone? No. In fact, i just recently bought another premiere for my living room. I can also say, that it is a noticeable difference in the HDUI speed from a year ago. Combined with the streaming out now, and the tivo android app, I must say, tivo is heading in the right direction. who knows what a year from now will bring lol?
Yes, I was actually looking at the SNR numbers since the signal strength numbers were obvious calculated differently. I actually see fewer uncorrected errors so far on 188.8.131.52, but the SNR numbers are down 3-4 dB on the Premier.
Only if you feel a need to be entertained while selecting your entertainment.
How do you know if you are running the new HDUI? I see i'm running 184.108.40.206 and hd menu version 1-9/2011.10.14-1818. I don't see anything that says 20.2
New version is 20.2. You'll see it on the Sys Info screen when you have it.
Here is the new flash and hd ui versions.
I definately don't have it. Hope to get it soon and see the difference for myself. thanks sbiller
