    Updated 1/6/2012: Added yes/no list for features included in the 20.2 release.

    I thought I would start a thread where we could start speculating about what is coming next (early next year). I will keep this post updated with any speculation you'll care to share with me. I will include your TCF ID in the list so we can see if there is any consensus.

    3DUI, operating at approximately 10% of the speed of the current HDUI. :)

    The biggest new thing I would like to see is Prime support. I hope you're right on that.

    As far as old items, I'd like to see the HDUI completed. Every screen. I have a reasonable expectation they will do this.

    - I'd love to see a better Netflix UI, with search and queue management. This would be my #1 request. (Being able to see what is available in HD would be nice too)

    - A Youtube update that actually allowed us to view 720p and 1080p video - AND didn't log me out every time!

    - Please, no social media integration! Don't give them ideas. I use my TiVo to view content, not tweet/post about it.

    If I got that, I'd be happy. Anything else would be gravy, Ple

    For those of us with cable service that sets EVERYTHING 0x02 "just because they can," it's a pain to have to watch something in a different room (or use Slingbox) because that's where it was recorded.

    I think we will get the streaming before the major update but I've added it to the list.

    Well, if you start a year back and extrapolate forward to next year, you'd have to speculate that absolutely nothing noticeable will happen in the next year.

    I won't repeat what already has been listed. Is this a Wish List too?

    HDUI Parental Controls (should be included in HDUI Completion)
    Screen Saver for paused recordings
    1Hr Live Buffer/Tuner (or selectable 1/2Hr or 1Hr)
    Better Conflict Management (Conflicts show in the To Do List with ability to change priority for one showing)
    Guide indicates upcoming scheduled recordings
    Auto Padding when Tuner Available (Time selectable)
    Overlapping Padding when Tuner does not change channels
    Cooperative Scheduling between 2 Premieres

    This is not a wish list. This is speculation as to what the TCF community thinks will be included in the next major release.

    I will put you down as someone who thinks the Premiere platform is dead and TiVo will not release any new features next year.

    Sadly, what Tivo posts on Twitter means very little based on the Premiere track record so far, so it's not dead but it's certainly not pining for the fjords (old Python joke).

    You can speculate about new features all you want, but it's really a waste of time and there's a zillion other wishlist threads here anyway. Hop over to Coffee House forum and see for yourself.

    Actually. Margret on Twitter has been quite accurate on just about everything she's responded to on Twitter. Sure, she's made a few mistakes but overall I would say that 90%+ of what she's posted has been accurate. I would recommend that you stop monitoring this thread since its meaningless to you and as you put it, is a "waste of time".

    On the social media front I think there's a good chance they'll integrate GetGlue. DirecTv is adding it to their set-top boxes and it's a good fit for Tivo as well. (Not that I like the idea at all mind you, I just think it's an idea that's probably getting some traction with Tivo.)

    Hey, if they want to integrate social networking, how about adding a custom TV centric social network where people who are watching live TV can alert the TiVo scheduling software of changes in schedules due to breaking news, long winded politicians, sports events, etc. That might be the first useful social network ever created.

    Here is what I would like to see;

    1) HDUI Completion - this includes HD Guide IMHO

    2) HD HME APPS - (Hulu, NetFlix, Vudu etc) Yes tivo premiere can run them, the iPhone 3G could so don't fool your self a remote computer or server can do the heavy lifting.

    3) HME app store with active development using, remote servers not local PC's
    *Social networking integration (Facebook, Twitter, Get Glue) only if done like Boxee not a full interface to read and, post from only collect media likes of friends as recommendations, and post them as well using the thumbs up/down rating system.

    TiVo can do an a lot with this platform, it has plenty of power, more so than other DVR's that have been on the market from other vendors its a matter of listening to the user community and, active aggressive advertising of the product and, offering things that truly make TiVo a huge cut above the rest.

    And what happens when a bunch of people send erroneous info?
    I would pass on that.
