    That is great! Thanks for sharing, since I don't "do" Twitter.

    Finally. Woot.

    I'll miss the quirks of the current Netflix app.

    The old spontaneous reboots when connections were lost.
    Dubbing out of sync.
    Shows starting out with video in fast forward, with normal dubbing.
    No way to tell if you've seen the content before.
    Queue reordering constantly (probably Netflix fault, but frustrating nonetheless).
    And, on and on.

    Glad to see that Tivo woke up and found themselves trailing the pack in 2010. Looking forward to the Netflix update. Now if they update Amazon VOD to allow for Prime Streaming, they truly have the Premiere box on the market.

    After years, two major updates in a year. Ipad Streaming. Is this the same company? Not complaining just happy to see it.

    It doesn't reboot anymore when a connection is lost. Although the Netflix app drops and takes you back to live tv. At least that how it worked when I was messing around with the app in the v20 software.

    Although I never had an issue with videos ff, or out of sync. The netflix app on my TiVos have been pretty much solid and very consistent with playback compared to other devices with Netflix. And when Netflix has been down on other devices, I could always go to my TiVos and it would still be working.

    Their booth display seems kind of ironic, though:

    Those are my pics from CES last year - I didn't make it to Vegas this year. But I've seen these displays used more than once and figured it'd be representative.

    Random episodes not showing up in the list due to the 100 episode limit.

    The first time I went to watch Star Trek:TNG on my TiVo season 1 only had 5 episodes listed.

    I'm not sure though if this Netflix update will be enough to get me to move back from using my PS3. I just recently picked up the new PS3 Media/Blu-Ray Remote I absolultely love it. That combined with PS3 Media Server I can get almost all my media on my PS3. I even have TiVo Desktop set up to download certain shows to my server and they can stream to the PS3 via transcoding.

    I thought this was a problem, but they do seem to give you at least 1 episode from each season. For example, I was doing a 24 marathon and was watching them in reverse order. Season 1 only had like the first 3 episodes. After watching the 1st episode, it removed 20 or so episodes from Season 8 and all the episodes from Season 1 were on the list. Not perfect, but we work with what we're given.

    Engadget got a preview of the new Netflix interface on TiVo, which I can't link to. :)

    But go to Engadget, the article name is "Updated TiVo Netflix, YouTube interfaces and iPad streaming hands-on"
