    Love updates! Any word about streaming music in a format other than MP3. Have many tunes ripped in a lossless format that will not stream to TiVo and have to use my PS3, XBOX360 or networked iPod dock to get them to receiver. Really want a Netflix update.

    I like the new version, HD guide both live and grid are nice. NPL is fast. Well done. Can't wait for my other Tivo Premiere to get it so I can do MRS.

    The Discovery Bar can be customized, option under the Display Settings.

    Margret, thank you for being vocal and giving us some info. Tivo employees posting on these forums are rare these days. The fact that you are poking your head out makes me believe this is truly going to be a great update.

    Way back in the day, Tivo employees used to post release notes on this forum. It took the guess work out but also allowed experienced users to give instant feedback to any changes they didn't like. Please consider doing this. It hurts me to come here and bash what used to be my favorite gadget as often as I do. I want Tivo to be my favorite gadget in the house but I'm a gadget geek and Tivo just keeps falling lower and lower on my list of favorites.

    I've been on this forum for almost a decade (longer than any other forum I post on) and much of love/hate relationship has to do with this forum. It's the only gadget forum I am a part of. I wish Tivo would embrace the users of this forum once again.

    The first wave of the update started rolling about 1AM EST last night. I was asleep, but just grabbed three quick pics and put my post up here:

    Hmm I never use it so I didn't check, but I'm fairly certain it used to be there. I also remember it being in the TiVo Search app for the Series 3. Maybe it was removed at some point and came back.

    Let me rephrase... my PR contact emailed me about 1AM that it was live. :) Regardless, I shut down about 10:15PM. I don't like blogging in the evening - takes away from family time (and TiVo watching).

    Update: Your timing also seems to support Engadget's coverage (11:48PM) and I didn't check, but also maybe when Margret started tweeting pics.

    I see they also have an official Android App now.
    margret tweeted the link

    EDIT: I guess I was a little late:eek:
    I see innocentfreak posted it seven hours ago. I missed it when I was reading the posts on my phone.

    has anyone tried it out yet?

    Thanks for all the info and keeping the community informed Margret. It has been lacking for the last few years so glad to see someone trying again.

    Is this the major release that you talked about in December or is a bigger one coming (full HDUI Maybe)

    just wondering. Great job and im hoping to see it in my elite soon!

    Well, these modest incremental improvements are all very nice, but I am really looking forward to seeing Max's more attractive cupcakes...

    Cant wait to get this. I do all of my streaming from my PS3 so that is not a huge concern for me.

    The only thing i noticed is it looks like the info bar is in the lower part of the screen now.... that would bug the crap out of me. I like the info bar pinned to the top I hope it can be moved

    She said it could not be moved. The idea is that it won't cut off heads now. Which I like, honestly. It will take some getting used to , but nothing important happens at the bottom of a show anyway. :cool:

    I agree 101% the new location just seems "weird" since its new. But I much rather see the upper 2/3 of the screen. good job TiVo!

    Yah, I loaded it up on a Sprint EPIC I have laying around. Only played with it a few minutes, but was first happy to see it worked on my model (not all apps will...) and seems pretty equivalent to the iOS app. Found my Premiere no problem.

    It doesn't go all the way to the bottom. Although I kind of wish it did (as well as the sides) - it'd look a little cleaner I think.

    That is my point, i would rather it consume the entire section, instead of floating in the screen. That is one thing i hate about the current guide is the floating aspect
