    Well the NDA and emails that I'd gotten in the past were pretty specific that you can't discuss items in testing, but over the years many of those items are now mainstream and in common usage.

    just because one is paranoid that doesn't mean no one is out to get them, on the other hand sometimes a cigar just is a cigar.

    You've got a lot of folks here that have been around the block and tested for assorted entities, I know I'm a very long term centercode/betabound tester and I'm aware of the limits of discussions around those as I am about the kinds of items Tivo has talked about in the past vs anyone talking about a current beta and I'm not seeing people discussing that, or maybe they are and I'm just too dense to notice it :)

    What I have noticed in the past is that Dave Zatz does seem to have folks in the betas talking to him since way back when I was in a beta and saw something on his site that we'd just started testing less than a week earlier that was definitely not public knowledge (or someone in Tivo was giving him inside info, in which case GO TIVO!)

    Something additional for the new White House Chief-of-Staff to look into . . . . ;)

    I've heard speculation elsewhere that any rollback would involve factory reset (loss of all programs, thumbs, etc.), and I think that's a reasonable assumption.

    If you really had all day to "play" with it, then your job would be make it crash, then reproduce the conduction that cause the crash and report that back. Have fun. :)

    Yes, doing an alpha or beta is all about finding bugs, loosing recorded shows, your windows update breaking your PC, etc, be careful what you wish for!

    looks like Premiere won't be on Hydra. Just in time for me to give up on Tivo.

    I think it was pretty obvious that Premiere would be baselined at this point. Maybe that was just me...

    even if the bugs were reported it seems like they sometimes still slip through to the final

    Yes the premiere is rather under powered. It has enough issues with speed as it is.

    20.7.2RC22 had a noticeable improvement in the responsiveness of my premiere. No skip mode as of yet.
