    I was pretty meh about the update until I saw that it has recording indicators! That was one of the things that bugged me most about Tivo. I like scrolling through the guide to see what will and will not be recorded without having to go back and forth to my to do list. :up::up::up:

    I will do my best, but you may find more than I remember. (I've had this update for awhile now.)

    Looks like (by the live icons and text on right) the results now show you the different content providers right in the list - select to view. That should make it a but less menu cascadey and help get people to content quicker.

    Works for me.


    I just noticed the menus have a sort of animated flip style to them when changing from TiVo Central to My Shows, and they seem to be a tad quicker.

    Also with regards to search. You now have an option to create wishlists based off your search. For example if you search NBC, above Youtube results for NBC, you now have an option to create a wishlist for NBC.

    Here's a higher-res version of the Virgin Tivo guide (with recording indicators), which is probably pretty close to what we're getting:

    We don't have Season Pass indicators assuming that is what those triple circles mean. We only have what is being recorded so far.

    That's not new. It's been that way for a very long time, I think since the Premiere came out. You could always create Wish Lists if you scrolled all the way to the bottom of the results.

    Oh I'd like those Season Pass indicators. The DirecTV DVRs have something like that, which were carried over from the old Microsoft UltimateTVs (that may be patented or similar, though. Maybe why we don't have them in the US?)

    Didn't give me the option on my Elite. I tried it and I only got results and Youtube.

    No "to be recorded" indicators? :confused: That's disappointing.

    What does that greyed out line at the bottom mean? Is that a non-subscribed channel or something? I assume being integrated the TiVo UI has more information about channel availability than stand alone US TiVos

    It's not on my premier either.

    Really looking forward to this update, hopefully feedback is good so the full rollout can begin soon.

    To Be Recorded indicators are there with double blue checkmarks.

    Yeah guessing that is a channel they don't get since I believe they can't add/remove channels.

    This is just a guess, but it may just be like that because it is the bottom row. For example, if you look at the "My Shows" (Now Playing) list, the text of the bottom 2 (or 1.5) listings on the page looks faded out, as a stylistic indicator that there's more to the list if you scroll down.

    Double blue checks would indicate season pass, correct? Single check would be manually set to record?

    Still it would be nice if there were Season Pass Indicators in the guide. I also don't know if blue arrows were the best choice since they don't jump out at you. Green or yellow might have worked better.

    Also there are no filter options to be found unless I am missing them since they aren't under options. I am really surprised by this.

    Yeah it looks like it.

    Sorry for all the single line replies as I keep finding things. Someone needs to make a thread tonight or tomorrow compressing all of this so it is easy to find.

    The Discovery bar also I noticed isn't near as bright and colorful. The pictures are muted and shrunk to fit the labels underneath. It would be nice to be able to turn off the labels and have the old images back. It really dulls the pages now. It is amazing the difference when jumping between my Elite, which doesn't have the update and XL which does.

    TiVo Central now displays the time in the upper right corner under the discovery bar in line with TiVo Central.
