    dsabine,

    I'm not seeing any delays at the moment here with 2 S3's both running 11.0. It took 5 seconds and 3 seconds to perform the 2 actions you listed and a music video download started in less than 1 minute. I know that I've seen others post regarding post-upgrade activity slowing things down for the first day or so as typical. I haven't seen this myself but thought I would mention it.

    Whooops.... well, I power cycled... still on "Almost there. Just a few minutes more..."

    EDIT: *phew*, all good.... up and running with 11.0-01-2-652. The unit shows up to 21 HD hours, or 184 SD hours.

    I also received the new firmware on my Tivo HD. I tried Video on Demand at about 7:30AM EST and it seemed to work flawlessly. I tried it again at around 9:30AM and saw the delays that others have described.

    I agree with wmcbrine that it may be a server problem. Or it might be an Internet infrastructure problem that is beyond Tivo's control.

    It's seems very premature to be bashing Tivo for this.

    I'm mainly bashing TiVo for me waking up to a blinking green power button and a dead TiVo. If this happened during my vacation I'd be screwed. After pulling the power I had to wait maybe a half hour for it to do it's thing and come back to life. This is NOT a good way to roll out an update.

    I have the same version on my TiVoHD, as of this morning. I did have a P03 version earlier, but I guess that was an interim update.

    You had 157 hours of record time before V11 but TiVo did not calculate the number correctly, the total partition for holding recordings is 930GB using a 1TB drive, that did not change with V11 but TiVo is now using an estimate of a little over 5.9GB/hour of space for HD recordings. An standard TiVo-HD now has 21 hours of storage show up. The TiVo-HDXL had software 9.41 that fixed the space calculation and has 157 hours (of HD) with the same 930GB of disk space.

    Same issue this morning. Got the message service had been updated, which I could not delete. Got an error about data could not be received. Went to the spinning wheel channel update screen. Rebooted everything.

    Came back online, but system ran horribly sluggish. Took forever to go from one TIVO screen to the next. Still could not delete the service update message. Could not see my list of recorded shows.

    I thought my externally hacked 1TB drive took a dump. Disconnected it, rebooted, TIVO saw it wasn't there and gave me an option to say goodby to it forever. Declined that option. Shut down external drive and HD box for several minutes. Powered up drive, then TIVO, and finally back to normal.

    I am officially annoyed that TiVo can have a major software revision (to 11.0), clearly a major branch point from the S2 software, and still have SD menus! Why can't they make the VOD menu HD?!

    I don't know what your issue is, but in general, pyTivo works with 11.0. I tested several things yesterday.

    My TiVo is also on the "Preparing the service update..." page with purple replacing the black colors. I'm assuming it started the update at 2am, so I'm going to unplug then plug it back in.

    Update: The install must have already been complete when it was frozen, because after unplugging/plugging back in, the TiVo seemed to do its normal startup and started okay. Software version is 11.0.

    Can you do a warm boot on your THD without any problems normally? I had read that one of the Western Digital drives had an issue with warm reboots but only with the S3 model so I'm curious if this is somehow related.

    Works fine on all my S2s also. This is a new TiVoHD and I had not tried it with 9.4 so can't say that 11.0 is the problem. It is acting like the transfer speed is VERY slow - i.e. no problem with choosing the file and starting the transfer. The blue LED comes on, etc.

    The TiVoHD is on a 4-port switch in my den with the only other thing being a S2 which isn't having a problem.

    Fall Update
    Per talking with support is to include Netflix however it may be slow to release.
    ______________
    I have noticed the slowness . changing items like, Live and going to recordings.
    Viewing a recorded show - 5+ seconds to start the show. Sometimes the audio starts with no video (black screen).

    I contacted Tivo support and the rep had me do a cold reboot.
    1. Unplugged everything (2 cable cards, power, digital, internet) except the HDMI cable and DVR Expander.
    2. Let sit a good 15 seconds.
    3. power up
    4. Add cable cards
    5. Add everything else.

    The slowness is a little better however, when watching a recorded show, it still took almost 5 seconds for the show to appear (black screen for 5 seconds when you're not use to it seems very slow).

    Any other sugesstions?
