    That is what has always been stated, but I wonder if it has more to do with the fraction of machines connecting via broadband vs dial up.

    One interesting thing I noticed on my one Original Series 3 with the new software, and had been upgraded with a 1Tb hard drive, is the the HD record time went from 144 hours to 157 hours (same as the TiVo-HDXL). Both TiVos provide 930MB of record time storage so that works out to about 6MB per hour of HD recording, I think that is correct from what i see as the record space a 1 hour HD program takes.

    see post # 8 this thread. As good a guess as any.

    Got 11 last night too! :)

    Can't see much difference, other than slightly different menus and 13 more HD hours (on a 1TB drive).

    Got it on my Tivo HD, not on the S3 yet. Don't see much difference besides the menu re-arrangement. navigating seems a little snappier. but could be just the reboot.

    Interesting. I came home to find a Fall service update. I can now rent Disney (and only Disney) movies from CinemaNow. Rented movies can be stored up to 30 days, but once you hit "Play" there's the same 24 hour viewing time limit as Amazon Unbox. There's a URL to www.tivo.com/cinemanow in the email notification too. But I have not seen the same features others are mentioning seeing with the Fall update. System version is still 9.4....

    Edit: forgot to mention that I can also rent movies from a service called Jaman. Is this old news?

    My TiVo also got the update.

    So far, about the only thing I see is on TiVo Central, where there appears to be a new menu option, "Video on Demand & YouTube" that takes you to the old "Download TV, Movies and Web Video" applet which used to be under Find Programs & Downloads. (which is now renamed "Find Programs").

    Of course, not being in the US, I don't have netflix, disney, or anything else, just YouTube, the video downloads, and the one true media thing.

    Also, I got the message stated above, but there's a second one dated the 20th that reads:

    Piscataway,...
    I received a message on my TiVoHD that it was updated with the software but it still shows 9.4 and a re-start did not fix. Anyone had this before, will it eventually show up in a few days?

    So, from reading more I may have received the 'feature' update and not the 'Fall' update, no real reason to have posted.

    I just received the new feature update. With me having the TivoHD, my version only went to 9.4 instead of 11.

    9.4 is the current software and has been for the past 6 months. The feature update, which I got yesterday, was not the fall update.

    I got this "feature update" message, too. Just coincidentally, I was trying to view U-tube videos while the update was apparently taking place, and strange things were happening. Then I noticed that my daily download had completed just a few minutes earlier, and this morning the update message showed up.

    Funny thing is, Disney and Jaman have been on my Downloads menu for at least a couple of weeks.

    It's not that unusual though as TiVo always waits a while before announcing the new features. I believe they did the same thing with YouTube.

    This falls into a category for which there are no effective regulations requiring closed captioning. Folks need to make their needs known to their Members of Congress, or this will not change.

    Got mine yesterday. Fell asleep last night on the couch and woke up to a screen with a black and white snowy, ghost-type image on the screen. Tivo was unresponsive and so was I. Went to bed and when I got up, it must have restarted.

    Today while watching live TV, the Tivo froze during a commercial. I was able to rewind and play and the time bar kept advancing but I was never able to get to the present. It would not go past the point where the commercial froze.

    I changed channels and they worked fine, then re-tuned to the stuck channel and it worked.

    I have Fios, two cable cards and the Tivo with the OLED display (I think that's what it's called)
