    It is not 100% HD yet, but it has improved the situation. I think settings, etc are still SD but the guide and info bars are now HD

    The Marketplace says the app isn't compatible with my device (Toshiba Thrive) so I guess this version is for Android phones only? :confused:

    How do we add users like in this pic, is this a new feature or has it always been there?

    Agree on both counts! This rollout is fun. Feels like the old days... before everyone started hating on TiVo.

    That was an accidentally leaked pic, it is not yet available, and it's not clear if it will actually be incorporated in the future.

    I don't think thats a leaked screen. It looks like the mock up screens from the Premiere press release "demo" a few years back. They were posted on Engadget at the time.

    Just got software version 20. I love how you can now see "Live TV" when looking at the guide.

    Leaked may not be the correct word, but they didn't mean to show it since it wasn't going to be in at launch.

    Thanks. I always wondered why they did not "repaint" the SD backgrounds in the premier's fire drill fix-it days. Seemed a good way to disguise the lack of HD. Have all of the old SD menus received this treatment?

    As far as I have seen yes.

    Also this has been applied to the SDUI.

    Two things I noticed, one great and the other not so much:

    1) While browsing the episode guide, you can create a wish list for a specific episode!
    2) In live TV, if you make a mistake with the channel number, you used to be able to just "wrap-around" and correct the number. For instance, if I tried to do 1004 and accidentally hit 1014, I could type 10141004 and it only took the last 4 numbers. Now, it just stops at 1014. Not sure how to correct this. Nor does it immediately jump to 1014 - still waits for a timeout or a press of enter before continuing. Worst of both worlds!

    I'm not entirely sure I like that. This was there before, so it's not new if you were using HDUI. A year or so ago, there was some poll from TiVo asking if we wanted the ability to have a "Default channel" that the TiVo goes to in certain circumstances. I'd like that to be here. Let me pick what channel shows up there if nothing is recording.

    I've not looked at 100% of the screens, but the SDUI looks a lot more crisp than it did on my last software revision (19.22). They have a different colour, and while I don't think the SDUI is actually HD, it "feels" like it. TiVoGuy is crisper, and the background is darker - I dunno, hard to tell.

    I will say this - enough of the UI is still the old SD screens. Even if you go through Netflix to get a show, you head through old SDUI type screens. ToDo List, and everything under setup/config is still SDUI. There's enough of it that it doesn't feel (to me) that the HDUI is completed, much less a whole lot different from the last software revision. Granted, didn't use HDUI exclusively, I used SD, but I did look at it from time to time. I could be wrong about it being the same number of screens in HDUI vs SDUI, but I don't have a list to prove it one way or the other.

    Here's a short video I shot - pointed the iPhone4S at the screen, and moved around a handful of menus. Not meant to be comprehensive, but you get the idea. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mfTf4X1sAjg[/media]

    I'm hoping this is a starting point, because it still feels like there's a lot to do. The SDUI looks nicer, but it's still the SDUI. All those sexy tweet pictures don't get seen if you're using SDUI. I would have HOPED that the stuff from live guide and what not made it into SDUI, but it didn't. It's the same old screens we've known for ages.

    And.. I'm still stuck in SDUI, because of my family's use of KidZone. I still can't use HDUI because of that. Sigh.

    Not that it makes a whole lot of difference, but the reboot "Please wait, just a few minutes more" is definitely more HD than before. :)


    Clear button doesn't work?

    1. This is really old. They just never announced it when it was added.

    2. At least for now just hit left and it should clear the channel banner. Then just start over. I tried to see if I could find another way, but that seems like it so far.
