    It's a known issue, see this thread:

    http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?t=405090

    it sounds like the fix is in software version 11.

    No idea if it's related, but I seem to be having more problems with TiVo recognizing my Internet connection than before the update. I frequently get the "service not available" message when going to Downloads and Youtube menu.

    I have 60-70% consistently on my wireless strength and have seen no corresponding problems with Internet access from my computers.

    Both of our Tivos (an HD and an S3) haven't received the update yet. Is it still rolling out?

    As far as I know, it hasn't started to roll out yet. Mine still haven't got it either.

    We still are in the pre release phase where a select few get picked at random to see what the calling volume is on the call center, and if any last minute bugs are found. This normally takes to weeks. So the roll out should start up pretty soon.

    Well, today marks two weeks since the initial roll out has started. So maybe we all will see v11 in the near future=)

    They wouldn't happen to have an advanced push signup list like they have had in the past would they?

    I'm in no rush........I just want them to get it right, especially after the disaster I had on the last update.

    They have never had them for the S3/HD... They don't really need them either. Every time I have gotten on here and seen people talking about the new update has been release, it is either on my Tivo already or I force a connection or two and I have it. As far as I can tell it is not like on the S2 where they roll out over a couple of weeks from at least my experience. That said, the new update has NOT been released yet.

    anyone else notice this bug? you watch something recorded and hit guide and browse the guide for a while, with the show still playing in the background, decide to watch something on live tv, go back to your recorded program and it starts where you initially hit the guide button?

    seems it should mark the resume point at where you were when you left the program not where you were when you started browsing the guide...

    Both of our S3's got 11.01-01-2-648 this evening. I went ahead and manually rebooted before 2am and both upgraded without any problems.

    Yup, looks like the floodgates are open for the S3 fall release now, my units got this update tonight. Hopefully Netflix streaming will follow shortly once many/most S3 owners have the update.

    I just got the series 3 update to 11, and i don't have this feature.
    its not just me, right?

    saw this on my friends series 2 a few weeks ago, thought it was kind of neat, and i wish we would have gotten it.

    she's been making fun of me, because she can't believe her series 2 got something i didn't ;)

    My S3 received 11.0 tonight. After rebooting the first thing I noticed was that 480i (SD) content now shows up in wide screen format on my Sony KDL-40XBR4 TV. The TV is reporting that the signal is 16x9 480i (anamorphic widescreen). Under 9.4, SDTV was reported as 4x3 480i, so it looks like the TiVo is incorrectly setting the anamorphic widescreen flag to true for SD (HDMI only). 720p and 1080i data is still 16x9 (wide screen) as it normally is, but now 480i/p is as well.

    My settings:
    S3 connected directly to TV via HDMI (no audio receiver)
    Video output set to Native resolution
    TV Aspect ratio set to 16x9
    Aspect correction ratio set to Full.

    I found some work arounds / fixes:

    1. Changing the aspect correction ratio from full to panel resulted in a normal square display, I guess this is okay, but it's just masking the problem since the graphic overlays (grid guide, trickplay bar, etc) are still wide screen as are the HME applications. Basically in this mode, the TiVo is stretching the SD to make it wide screen and then squashing it to make it normal again. It doesn't exactly match width I get if I set the TV to normal mode and the aspect correction to full.

    2. Changing the TV aspect ratio to 4x3 fixed the problem, but that's not really a solution since the menus then display in SD (480i).

    3. On a whim I tried switching from HDMI to component and interestingly enough the problem does not occur with component, but I would rather keep using HDMI as I have no more component inputs free on my TV (plus I don't like the mess of cables).

    4. Since my TV maintains separate settings not only for separate inputs, but also different resolutions, I worked around this by changing my TV's "auto-wide" feature off for the HDMI input that my S3 is connected to. When on, this feature automatically switches to wide screen when it detects a 16x9 signal. I left it on for the other inputs, so it will still work with my PS3. I then manually set the TV to display 480i/p content at 4x3 and 720p/1080i content at 16x9. With these settings, even though my TV reports the 480i/p TiVo video is 16x9 (wide screen), it will display it as 4x3 (normal).

    Personally I was glad to see it's not there in 11.x and hope the S3 software never gets that ad disguised as a "feature".

    Please let us know when it is released then the people who have been using it can post about it. They have been talking about it rolling out here for at least 2 weeks and because you haven't received it yet it hasn't been released? :confused: everyone that says they have 11 must be lying about it because it hasn't come out yet. :eek:

    The first post of it was Thursday night just short of exactly two weeks before I posted that. The minimum testing time is two weeks period. Basically I was just saying don't even look for it until after two weeks from the first report of it. Now I am taking a second to go check my Tivo, because someone reported getting it... Still have 9.4 but I am forcing a connection.

    Same

    I have tried forcing a few connections this morning after reading that others got it last night. My S3 is not picking up the update. I'm still on 9.4

    I get to quote myself... nice. Anyways, the update took a little longer than usual and said pending restart after it was done. I am restarting now.

    Edit: After restart version 11.0-01-2-652
    Edit: Note that I am connecting via broadband. Your result are almost guaranteed not to be the same if you still use dial up to connect.
