    Are you sure it wasn't a "Feature Update" message. I got one of those today on 9.4, it talked about Jamon and Disney.

    There are two updates, one just gives you some more movie PPV options and does not change the software version, the other will change the software version to v11. Only a few TiVos are getting V11 now (I have only one out of four that has v11)

    I probably misunderstood the msg, but I would have sworn it said the fall update...yes, it talked about Disney and several other download sites...

    Since V11 is slowly trickling out, when can the rest of us expect to see it...we only have a week until 1 Dec and the start of the Netflix service...

    If memory serves, it was about a week ago people started reporting getting v11.
    So that leaves at least another week before the main rollout.

    Tivo's version information display is using the Serles 1 DST code. :D

    The announcement about Netflix only said December, not December 1. For all we know it could roll out December 31 (I hope not).

    I read soemwhere else in this forum that the netflix thing was not going to need an upgrade to the TiVo software. Not sure where I saw it.

    I too have gotten the Jamon and Disney update message. It arrived on Thursday. Problem is IT WON'T STOP TELLING ME ABOUT IT!!!

    I deleted the message (message list is empty), and EVERY TIME I come back to my TiVo after being away for a few hours, the message reappears! After selecting "done with this message", I go to the messages window, and there are no messages. Something crazy is happening.

    It's happened 3 days in a row now. I just rebooted it. Let's see if it's really gone.

    Did that happen to anyone else?

    Oh, I didn't check beforehand, but after the reboot, I have s/w version 11.0.P3-01-2-652

    I got the message every day since the 20th ???

    I can't tell if it also reboots every day or not.

    The version is 11.0

    Same here. I've had that stupid message show up every day since I got the update. Yesterday I went in and deleted it (and a couple other messges about lineup changes and the fall update), and then I got it *again* today. Ugh. Is this going to happen every day from now on?

    Tonight when the unit's not recording anything I'll try a hard reboot and see if that helps.

    Good to know I'm not the only one. At first I thought it was a fluke, but now it's becoming an irritation.

    And I have both the Fall 2008 update and the Feature update. And the damn feature update keeps reappearing every day.

    After all, I got the Fall update on Friday, then the Feature update on Saturday (OK, maybe it was to be official since it never popped up the first time). Then on Sunday was a bit wierd, but today... it's getting a bit much...

    Yet another way to spend money. Not my idea of an "update".

    Figure that your personal objectives are not necessarily the same as TiVo's company objectives. You can't evaluate how effective an "update" is without understanding and using as criteria their objectives, not to mention knowing how much they spent.

    Beyond that, I'm also getting the message daily. It is either a bug, and if so, then we just need to get over it, and wait for a fix; or it is deliberate, and then we just need to get over it.

    After the reboot, it STILL shows up. "We just need to get over it?"

    When I get home this evening, I will definitely be calling TiVo to complain. Either they don't know it's not going away, OR, they know about it, and it's free advertising. Either way, that's wrong. It's more like NAGvertising.

    With a name like bicker, I'd expect more complaining from you :)

    This may be a coincidence, but in the past few days I have noticed some interlacing issues when there is a fast screen change. This just started happening in the past few days. I was upgraded to version 11.

    You know, now that you mention it, I have also noticed some odd interlacing artifacts. I have received the update. However, I am not sure if it was on the BD player or the Tivo. I will have to look into this.

    Which word was unclear? :confused:

    It is your prerogative to complain about anything you wish.

    No, in the latter case it isn't wrong. You simply don't like it. That was the point.

    I complain about whining, mostly. :D

    I really doubt that TiVo intended for the message to keep coming back. It hasn't done that on my box, so unless it's only supposed to come back for some people one of these behaviors must be a bug.
