    not quite sure how its an "ad"

    you pause a show. the name of the show shows up in the pause bar. if you wish to get more information about the show, schedule a season pass, whatever, you can do it from the pause screen.

    at least, from what i saw. maybe i missed something

    It could be, but some how I'm thinking it's either going to be Budweiser or Pepsi:D

    Not sure if I missed this, but I just noticed that my S3's are showing more hours of capacity with this last update.

    I now have 143 HD hours instead of 131 on one of them with a 750GB external.

    I doubt you actually have more capacity though. They probably just changed the way it calculates space. It is always a guess anyways.

    I think the update is coming pretty quick for me because I just went to do a "connect to the TiVo service now" and it says "this option will be unavailable until a scheduled software update occurs at 2:00 am."

    I woke up to the "preparing software update" screen on my TivoHD at around 4:40 this am. Later, I checked the system info screen and noticed I now have 21 hours of HD recording capacity instead of 20.
    How'd they manage that?

    2:00 am is when a Tivo normally reboots itself when it has downloaded a software update. The statement I bolded above tells me your Tivo has downloaded the update and is waiting to reboot at 2:00 am.
    But, you don't have to wait that long. You can manually reboot to install the software NOW.

    You were right, I did a reboot and it says "preparing the service update. This may take up to an hour, possibly longer."

    It's just an estimate. They may have tweaked the formula.

    I just got the update on my series3!!! The screen says "Preparing the service update. This may take up to an hour, possibly longer."
    Can't wait to see how this turns out...hopefully netflix will be streaming in the days to come!

    My Series 3 is still not picking it up. I guess I'll have to wait and see if it grabs it tomorrow.

    I received the upgrade last night. Everything is fine except it broke video transfers from my Mac back to the TiVo. It didn't even show my Mac as an available download source for video. Music transfer worked. I don't know if photo transfer worked, I use Aperture for my photos and TiVo Desktop only supports iPhoto.

    I hunted through tivo.com and downloaded the latest version of TiVo Desktop for the Mac (v1.94). (Complaint: They could make it easier to locate this on the web site.) The new version fixed the Mac to TiVo video transfers problem.

    I was running TiVo Desktop v1.93. I don't know when v1.94 came out, I haven't checked for a new version in months.

    Just got my 11.0 update today. I noticed that before my Tivo (which has 1.5TB of storage) said it could record up to 198hrs of HD video, now it says up to 215hours of HD.

    It was a bit disconcerting to see that "You have received the Fall Service Update!" message again, after having received it a week or so ago...

    You might have had the pre-release version a week or so ago and then got the final version.

    There were two updates. One was "Fall Service Update" and another was "Feature Update" - you probably got the latter one first (seemed everyone did - especially those complaining about getting that message more than once).

    Nope, I actually do read those after-the-fact messages, and I do know what it said each update was. :D I also got a Feature Update reasonably recently (prior to the first service update, if memory serves).

    Interestingly, the earlier "Fall Service Update" had my Tivo down for about an hour, while the one earlier this evening only had me down for about 10 minutes. Also, my System version (after that first service update) was 11.something.p6 or something like that, while now it is 11.0-01-2-652 - so I'm guessing George is right.
