    I know that, what does that have to do with my question whether it's available On Demand?

    And most of the Premium content if you're a subscriber, i.e. HBO, Showtime, etc.

    In my findings about 75% of the shows that air on network/cable are available. A majority of them only have the last 3 episodes and/or wait a week before making the episode available ondemand.

    All the shows that are currently airing on premium networks are available right after the show airs or by the next morning (including every episode from the season thats currently airing). But if you want to watch older premium channel content it isn't so easy.

    Example: Comcast only gives you a couple episodes each week of old HBO shows, unlike HBO Go that lets you watch every episode.

    I'm on the preferred list and only just now got the update... 12 days after others first reported it...

    I would "PREFER" to get it sooner... :)

    I haven't noticed any difference yet. I was hoping for todo screen in HDUI...

    and also non-network local content (like pets available for adoption at the local shelter).

    Just out of curiosity, did you re-enter your TSN on the Priority Page when this new minor update was released? The entries from the Spring Update weren't carried over to this one. I got my update just a couple days after I entered my TSN.

    When that happens, we just hit up eztv.it and download the show, then move it to the TiVo. They have extensive links for most major shows.

    I not saying ON-Demand is the only way to get a missing show, just saying it is an easy way to do it, if/when OD is available on my TPs.

    This "minor" update has managed to screw up the metadata transfer - again.

    Not sure yet but the discovery bar is now gone from my unit after this minor update - I have all that Customize Discovery Bar stuff unchecked.

    If this is true and holds..........YAY! Finally after 2 years!

    I was wrong about this. It was a different problem involving starRating.

    Never even happened for me. I went in and unchecked everything and Discovery Bar changed but is still there.

    There have been several problems for me with this "minor" update.

    1) I'm getting audio glitching (as others have reported) that is fixed by the jump back button. It for me however only seems to occur on Podcasts such as CNet. I can play the same Podcast from the Now Playing list twice and I may get the problem the first time, the second time, both times or neither. It usually goes away within 10-15 seconds into the podcast without rewinding, but it is annoying nonetheless.

    2) The NEW indicator seems to have disappeared from the NPL as well as the folder icons.

    3) The currently selected item in the list doesn't appear selected when getting to a list for the first time. This can be in the now playing list or in a folder. Moving the selection makes the highlight show up. Selecting the item without the highlight also works, but sometimes the item that is actually selected isn't the item I wanted.

    4) Pressing the clear button to delete from the remote while in a folder on in the main NPL doesn't do anything (I expect it to delete the show).

    All these problems showed up around the time I got 20.2.1.2, which ironically doesn't actually do anything for me since I don't currently have Comcast, and even if I did, I don't live in an area that they have turned on OnDemand for.

    I'm seeing somewhat the opposite problem. Almost everything is flagged as NEW, including anything transferred to the TiVo. But this Premiere doesn't do much recording (still haven't installed the CableCARD). I'll check the other one tomorrow.

    Not seeing this problem.

    Nor this one.

    Discovery bar back on today. Weird that it was off all of last night and didn't slow down or crash the Tivo. I guess they are slowly polishing things with the interface. In the past, if the discovery bar was not displaying, the entire interface would slow to a crawl. Since it was still snappy and working fine without it for many hours last night, I was hoping they removed it with the new upgrade (depending on settings).

    Short lived buzz for me.:(

    Items 2 - 4 seem to have fixed themselves. Item 1 remains.
