    I checked www.tivo.com/priority and there is no information with respect to 9.1. I forced a connection with my S3 & S2 this AM and no updates.

    Usually the Spring and Fall Updates, when they first come out, are limited to x% of the unit population to determine if there are any adverse impacts to customer service, etc.

    At the time of my posting, it's still before business hours in California, so I expect TiVoPony or someone else to make an announcement sometime today regarding it.

    Woo Hoo!! This is exactly the feature I have been waiting on! I am a big UNC fan and want to get all of the football and basketball stuff. However, my "NORTH CAROLINA" Sports/Basketball or Sports/Football WishLists also pick up all of the North Carolina State crap I don't want. This is great. Can't wait to get the update and play around with it.

    One thing I have noticed so far is that TiVoCast downloads seems much faster to me. That looks like a very nice improvement. It used to take forever to get the longer episodes.

    I wonder if there will be any fixes for ""Viewing is not permitted using the DVR's HDMI output. Try another TV input" message issues?

    I am not aware of any such issues.

    Some older Sony HDTVs have a bugged firmware that must be fixed before it will work reliably with most modern HDMI devices. I'm not sure there is anything Tivo can do about that.

    What is the make and model of your TV? Mine is a Sony R60XBR1 (a 60" Sony SXRD HDTV) and I get that from time to time. I have to switch to another input and then back to fix it.

    I am having issues with my SXRD's picture (the optical block issue that many have experienced and why Sony extended the OB warranty until next year) so I might see if they can update the firmware on my TV as well when I have them fix it.

    I don not want to hijack this thread, and I was in the process of bumping an old thread on the subject, so if anyone has any ideas on this please visit the "Viewing is not permitted using the HDMI port..." thread.

    George, what are some of your optical block symptoms? Sometimes the reds on my SXRD 60A2020 can look too strong. However, I have yet to do a serious calibration on my set. Just using presets and have copied others settings from AVSForum.
