    It would be nice if some sort of instruction screen would pop up after an update to teach you this stuff. I assume there are at least some people out there that don't check forums like this and will turn the tv on one morning and wonder why the TiVo is different all of a sudden.

    No, they are there. We accidentally left them out of the screen shot. (Sorry!)

    Red Circle = recording now
    Two blue checkmarks = Season Pass will record
    One blue checkmark = One-time recording will record

    Please PLEASE tell me I can use this if I'm using KidZone. I really hate being stuck in SDUI because I use KidZone.

    Edit: Margret sent me a msg saying on Twitter that KidZone still forces you to use SDUI.

    No updates yet, but one of my Premier boxes kindly informed me to "Upgrade to Premier" at the very bottom in TiVo central. Forced connect and it went away.

    TiVoMargret - Do you always work this late? Not that I'm complaining. I love getting the latest update info direct from the expert, but it's got to be after midnight where you are.

    Thanks for working above and beyond!

    TiVo's in California, so if she's at HQ, it's 10:20PM right this minute there.

    Edit: For the record, it's cool all this info is being given. That's great stuff! Not thrilled with the KidZone thing, but I'm still eagerly looking forward to the rest of it.

    Summary of Changes

    As seen in pictures, the guides have been updated. With the update we gained and lost.
    GUIDE
    Gained
    Recording indicators. Double Checks for season pass recording set to record and single checks for manual recordings. Note: There is no Season Pass indicator only shows scheduled to record are marked.

    Lost
    Filters. I don't see any option to filter by content in the guide now.

    Dislike
    You have a preview window in the guide whether this is enabled or turned off. This seems to be par for the course with TiVo though, but it would be nice to not have it. You can't turn the preview window off so you have to pick a show from My Shows to watch while browsing the guide otherwise you risk spoiling a show that is currently being recorded just to use the guide.


    Menus


    All screens now have a HD background and box even though the text is still SD. Hard to describe so hopefully someone can take a screenshot. This seems to help with menu transitions see next.

    Menus are a little more animated and seem to flip when going between menus.

    On the Find Screen there is a dotted line seperating the search and OTT providers like youtube and Netflix.

    Discovery bar now only has 5 items and under each picture is a category such as Popular on Web, My Shows, etc. This is so people know why it is recommended. Unfortunately this also dulls and shrinks the images and the whole screen looks faded as a result. You can no longer scroll left to right either.

    Under Search you now have an option to create a wishlist for your search. Say for example you wanted to search for Alcatraz and it wasn't in there yet at the bottom of the results above Youtube now you have the option to create a wishlist for Alcatraz.

    Under Search you can now search for channels, by channel name such as NBC. this gives you the ability to select the channel to watch live. It will take you to live tv first and then ask if you want to cancel the recording if something is recording on both tuners.

    Time is now displayed in the upper right hand corner of TiVo Central.

    Streaming is official this time ;)

    Android App is launched

    Yes, I'm in California, and although it is past my bedtime I have a bit too much adrenaline to sleep. In addition to my regular design responsibilities, in this case I was also responsible for running the software release. (My first one ever.) So, if there is *anything* you don't like about this new release, it is almost certainly my fault. :)

    I had an amazing engineering and program team to work with, and what you see in this update is just the beginning. There are more great things coming to Premiere in 2012.

    I second the thanks to Margret. It is great to have regular feedback here and on Twitter. Feeling more like the old days where the people hanging out here were the "in crowd" and had the latest info direct from the source.

    If it's true that Amazon Prime Streaming is available, then I like that.

    Also I really hope the Netflix app gets an update. Of all the things I have that do Netflix streaming (Wii, 360, PS3, PC, iPhone, iPad, PC, Sony Blu-Ray Player, TiVo Premiere), the TiVo is by far and away the worst interface.

    Isn't that the truth! Look at my signup date. Then the number of posts. There's a reason why my post count is so low, compared to others who signed up around that time. :)

    I definitely can't wait to see what else is coming. I am going to try and let the changes soak for 24 hours before giving any real feedback. I am also curious to see if my opinion matches others since everyone has a different view on what the best design is.

    Good luck on the release, and Thanks for dropping in on us.

    Perhaps the confusion is Amazon streaming vs. Premiere-to-Premiere streaming. The P-to-P streaming is coming, but not until the roll-out is completed to all users.
