    Thanks Joe. The menus look a bit faster, and while some SD screens have been repainted, it is less jarring than when the background popped.

    While not 100% HD, this should help quiet (at least a bit) the naysayers who would continually argue that these screens would never change. Clearly, it is now a matter of "when".

    Clear dumps the entire channel number buffer.

    Even on HDTVs we still have to worry about where TVs crop their display. (Some are VERY aggressive.) So we still have regions we call title-safe and action-safe. We could bleed to the edges (but not show data there) but when we looked at that the banners felt really large on TVs that don't crop.

    Preview is considered part of the Series4 product line, so yes it will get an update to these new screens, but not as part of *this* release.

    sweet my elite got the update to.

    Both my premiere and elite have it (thanks margret!)


    I really like the little things from this update.

    -SD Screens use same background so it "looks" complete
    -little dots added to the Show screen that breaks up the episodes from the options (play all show, view upcoming...)
    -Clock! How did we never have a clock their!
    -i dont remember if it always said New in the program list if you had new episodes but i find it useful
    -top bar seems different. Cant put my finder on it but it seems less cluttered and has more info

    note: i only been using this for 10 mins...

    TiVoMargret -

    I thought i saw a tweet that said this was the first time you ran an update for the software. If that is the case i hope you run them ALL for now on. This update is defiantly one of the best the premiere owners have had.

    Cant wait for MRS now that i have the update on both my boxes.....


    Now to have a 3rd premiere to replace my tivo HD so i can stream everywhere :)

    Do I have a bug with the Mini Info Banner? Most of the time it does not display the progress bar, below the Info Bar. Every now and then it is displayed but it seems random.

    The only time I see the progress bar is when going from Guide to LiveTV,
    Swapping tuners or changing channels does not bring up the progress bar.

    EDIT: The Progress Bar seems to disappear behind the Mini Info Bar most of the time and the location of the Mini Info Bar drops down the screen.

    Ok, so the select button brings up the mini-guide which is great, but it causes one problem - How do I do the Select-Play-Select-Pause-Select code?

    EDIT....never mind...just figured it out. Bring up the mini-guide first, then try it. I figured I'd still post this in case somebody else was trying to figure it out.

    What about Parental Controls? Super-disappointed this STILL isn't implemented for the HDUI over 18 months after launch...

    Downloading the update now... About how long did it take to reboot and install after the download? Just wondering if I should do the reboot now or wait till later tonight.

    I emailed mine immediately and didn't get in...(yet?). I was over my parents and they got it on both of theirs.

    One minor change I noticed. In the guide, if you type in a channel number you don't receive, it would put the next highest channel number at the top of the guide. Now it puts the previous channel at the top of the guide.

    In my case, our HD channels start in the 500s, so I used to always bring up the guide and type "500". It would show me the guide so that "503" was the first channel listed (the first channel after #500 that I receive). Now, it puts "492" at the top of the guide (the last channel before #500).

    I preferred it the other way, and obviously it's something very minor, but I figured I'd mention it as a difference.

    About 30-45 minutes. I wasn't monitoring it, but it takes a bit.

    Tonight it is then... WAF will be home before that will be able to get done, wouldn't go over well if they couldn't watch TV.

    Another thing that's a little awkward: the screen jumps around when you do things to shows selected from the guide (schedule/cancel a recording, change recording options, explore a show). Specifically, the live TV window goes from the upper right corner to full screen for a second or two, and then back to the upper right corner. It feels pretty awkward.

    Not intended as a complaint...just something that Tivo development team might want to make sure is on their "to do" list to clean up for a future release.

    Start to finish (including reboot) was between 45 minutes and an hour. Probably about 15-20 minutes for the call, then about half an hour to reboot/install.

    Yea, I'd actually consider upgrading to an elite if I could stream from it to my existing premiere which I could move to another room. (Though I'd definitely wait for all the bugs to shake out before making the jump :).
