    I'm OTA as well. Didn't occur to me to rescan. I'll try that. I wonder if scan time has improved. The Premiere is the slowest scanner I know of. Even a $50 pocket digital TV I have can make a full scan in about 2 mins.

    That's the TV stations' fault, not the Tivo's clock.. You need to just use padding.
    (Plus, that wouldn't help for all shows, since the amount of padding needed is different for different shows.)

    Don't you just turn off the lower #s in channels I receive to do that?

    For reference,

    I sent Margret my 4 TSNs this am at 8:17. Download is now processing on all 4 boxes!!!

    I got no notification. I just tried a connection to tivo about once an hour or so since this morning.

    It is REALLY great to have someone from TiVo watching and posting and interacting with us! Thanks, Margret- you have a LOT of fans here at TiVoCommunity.

    Add me to the list of people who would like to see "official" release notes every time there is an update.

    I do, but I'm in a two market area where I receive Milwaukee and Green Bay stations, but only the Milwaukee ones get HD equivalents on my cable system. I keep the Green Bay stations in 4:3 SD on the single-digit channels because there are times shows are pre-empted on the Milwaukee stations in HD and because of weather situations.

    Yeah, looks like I missed the boat. I Emailed her at 11:22pm EST tonight and got an immediate autoresponse saying her Priority List is full so I will have to wait, but all Premieres would get the update by the end of the month.

    As usual, I will be dead last getting an update. Oh well. At least she is helping us and giving us lots of great info!!

    You think seconds on a clock are distracting compared to delay-loaded discovery bar junk and live TV previews while trying to look at a guide?? :)

    I unfortunately found another thing I don't like about the new discovery bar. You can no longer thumbs up or down items on it. You have to actually select the show to do so and even after that it doesn't show whether you already rated it.

    I don't care that the priority list is closed, I'm emailing mine anyways in hope I can get it sooner.


    Sighs, can't believe I missed this one, crys. Never expected something like this from TiVo

    work sucks, had to work 14 hours yesterday, then all day today. By the time I found out about this it was to late.

    It's still slow as molasses. Took it HALF AN HOUR to scan my channels. That's nuts.

    Still, it found 19 more channels than I had before this software. That's interesting. Granted, most are ones I don't care about, but that it found more via a software update is interesting.

    Also noticed that movies now have the year they were released appended to their titles when looking at them in the live guide (both styles, too.)

    Absolutely. A normal clock that only shows hours and minutes would be fine. This isn't mission control. As for the discovery bar, I never even notice it.
    Live TV in the corner while the guide is up is fantastic. Hate missing something while I'm searching to see what else is on.

    LOL. Yeah. I don't really see where seconds are needed. I bet if it were put up to a vote, most people would say take seconds off. I would, too.

    I *hate* the discovery bar. I can't HELP but notice it because it robs me of space that could be used for something useful. And the delayed load/change, to me, is severely distracting. I will probably never really be satisfied with the HDUI as long as I can't turn it off (or at a very minimum, make it instant and static).

    Well, to each their own. I think TiVo needs to make it optional, like they do with the live TV on the other menus. Giving users options is *always* better.

    I don't know if that one in particular is hide-able but TiVoMargret previously in this thread showed where to go to disable the other PIP items. She also said you can temp hide them like you can in the current version by hitting slow motion still.

    Sam B. asked me to shoot a video so he could see some of the new visual elements and get a sense of speed. There's a lot to like here, but I find the UI still too sluggish - specifically when populating things. Having said that, I won't go back to the SDUI and have used the HDUI nearly exclusively since launch.

    Thanks for the video Dave. Now I know what to expect if I ever get the upgrade.

    Thanks for the excellent video!

    I agree that there are some nice and exciting new elements. And it does seem faster. But, to me, it still suffers from being too slow. It is likely I will STILL not give up the SDUI for this. It is another step in the right direction and I am surprised how quickly this was pushed after the last update. Coupled with the Android App and Margret's participation on this forum, things are looking MUCH brighter than they ever have.
