    Is it just me or does it seem like lately in the past 2 weeks there has been a lot of TIVO news.

    - TIVO/Comcast VoD Alliance
    - TIVO Premiere Software Update 14.8
    - TIVO Premiere and Hulu Plus

    Usually it's month without nothing. Now it like stuff is pooping. Just IPO.

    What could come next?

    I think this should only count as one thing since I think 14.8's main feature was the addition of Hulu+.

    Remote deletion from other Premieres and they also upped the number of things the Tivo can do at the same time with regards to recordings, transfers, downloads, and playback.

    Yeah. Aaronwt posted a thread about it in the premiere forum. It mentions the remote deletion. He also found he was able to download from amazon, transfer a recording to a premiere while also transferring a recording from another premiere, while recording two shows and playing back a third recording. All of this was happening at once on one box.

    You don't know that...

    Apparently there are several Networking improvements as well. We won't have a full list until the final release is pushed.

    Will give TiVO lots to talk and crow about during the Earnings Conference Call set for tomorrow. This convergence of events did not happen by accident.

    And the icons! Don't forget the updated icons.

    Seriously, they look way better. Just tonight I realized that circles are actually circular now.

    I kinda think that the text and graphics overlay of the "SDUI" is actually rendered in 720p now (as the background has always been), but I've been wrong about that before, so I'm not ready to commit to it.

    Yeah, I missed the remote deletion. always a pain to go back to the other TIVO HD in my house to delete what we have transferred. Small Pain but a good add.

    Did not know about the earning calls. Well they have positives to talk about now.

    When I checked the transfer history I did notice that the Amazon download was much slower than normal. The transfer history showed around 4mb/s while normally it's over 30mb/s when it's by itself. But the transfers to/from the other TiVos were still over 40mb/s.

    Either way this should bode well for streaming content between premieres, if/when they implement it.
