    I just got a new service update for Fall 2007. The software version is now 9.1.L5. The main improvement TiVo promotes with it is superior wish list functionality.

    Anyone else get this update? More impressions later...

    You're not a beta tester are you? If you are the TiVo "police" will yank this.

    Interesting - how did you get it?

    I just forced a connection and I don't have it.

    Update:
    Forced another connection and now have a service update installing on my Series 3. Ditto on my Series 2 DT box.

    I just noticed I had a "Pending Restart" when I got home today. I only noticed that because my To Do List did not seem to go out as far as it normally does. So, I was going to check my network connections.

    So, I did a manual restart, after more than an hour, it announced it had installed the Fall 2007 update. That was that.

    Jumping from 8.3 to 9.1, the changes must be more substantial than just a WishList improvement.

    This sounds like a limited random post-beta release, which means the rollout should be pretty close.

    I wonder if this release will synch up the original Series 3 and the TiVo HD software. I love software updates!

    Welcome to the forums "GrantParkGuy". I see that this is your first posts here since you registered almost a year ago.

    Are you pulling our leg?

    Mine is installing now.

    Maybe this is the software update for TTG & MRV, but they won't be activated until they flip the switch on the System Info screen?

    Advanced WishLists!

    - Multiple Keywords and/or Title Keywords
    - Multiple Actors and Directors
    - Any combination of Title Keywords, Keywords, Actors, Directors, and Category in a single WishList
    - Negated, Optional, or Mandatory terms
    - User-defined name for a WishList

    For example, you could define a WishList for movies with Sally Fields but without Burt Reynolds.

    Cool stuff!

    Edit: Received the same update on my S2 at the same time, so this is a global update, not S3-specific.

    This must be for real (or a really big mistake) - my series 3 and series 2 both now have 9.1.L5 on them.

    Been wanting smarter WLs for some time now - wonder what else is new?

    Both my S2 and S3 were upgraded last night too!

    Now just turn on MRV and I'll be a happy camper!
