    Margret tweeted last night that all requests to 6am pt yesterday were processed. I sent mine at 1:30ish pt yesterday. :( Regardless I keep forcing calls as if that will do something. You'd think I'd learn after 11 years! Hahaha

    With all those questioning speeds, i have to say, unless you are using a basic cable box with a Basic Guide, the HD Guide speed on the Tivo is on Par or faster then others i have seen. Compared to Direct TV's new HD guide and the Fios HD guide, there is really no speed difference

    On the upside you should be in the next group to get their early release... yesterday she announced those that made it in by 5am and again 6am pt got the updates. If they work this weekend, maybe they'll get the 7 and 8 am pt groups in today?

    I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

    The *GUIDE* speed in the HDUI is OK. It is just most everything else that is "slow" :)

    That is inconsistent with what Margret's Email autoresponse said. It specifically said that the priority list is CLOSED and everyone will now have to wait for the "normal" process, which will take up to the end of the month. Although you can keep hoping if you like. ;) (I will too)

    Well take the Guide out of the equation and include "everything else" and it is still on par. I spent the Christmas week playing around with the new Direct TV UI and was actually shocked how slow it was(i am a big DTV fan boy also)

    My inlaws have the new Fios 1.9 UI and while it looks sharp, it isnt blazing at all.

    Many of us are comparing to the SDUI, not other cable-company/sat boxes. As long as moving from the SDUI experience to the HDUI experience is painful, there is a problem...

    It is painful.

    Same for me. I was shocked that it was done already.

    I got mine from Marget. Tivo made me feel like I matter again. I hope they can keep this up. :)

    Signing up for the priority list is what is closed. She announced that on her twitter feed. I would link that tweet for you, but I haven't figured out how to get URLs for individual tweets since Twitter changed their site.

    Anyway, those that got in before ~16 hours ago (So about 7pm ET) should still get their updates. But nobody else can register.

    It would be beneficial if TiVo added a priority sign-up web site like they had in the past. I'm sure it wouldn't be a lot of engineering effort to automate the process.

    I've noticed the TiVo guy is definitely higher res in the SDUI screens, he looks much sharper, but of course everything else looks the same (resolution wise)

    The "this channel is not available" style messages when you tune an unsubbed channel looks to have been updated to HD as well.

    Pressing Select brings up the mini-guide immediately. Pressing it again goes to the small banner. I'd rather it work like it did before: right arrow brings up your last banner choice and cycles through them as you press (not advocating bringing back the mini channel-only banner, though)

    The old banner is still there if you use SDUI.

    I can't wait. Still emailing my information in hopes they will see it and add more. (Sent it 3 times now)

    Missed the sign up because I had to work a 14 hour day Thursday, then all day Friday and when I got home I wasn't even thinking about going online and seeing what's up with tivo.

    The problem then is the HDUI will never live up to your expectations. If you compare the SDUI on the Premiere to the HDUI on the Premiere it will never be the same speed.

    Not without some design changes, no.

    It probably never will be, but that doesn't mean it *has*to be or *had* to be that way.
