    the only reason DRM would change is if the upstream rights from content providers chnaged in some way. Since that isall done with license and FCC rules I higjly doubt any upstream change would go in unnoticed, thus I highly doubt there is any change in the DRM.

    Now, we will finally see what the rights look like on the digital content that comes via cable card so I expect some issues with that such as happens with Macrovision when the head end equipment at a cable company is not set correctly etc..

    the simple explanation would be the differences to accomadate the new file format of digital straight to the drive for S3 line and how to work with that for MRV/TTG

    Is there anything besides the wishlist thing that this adds for S2?

    Same thing happend to me - actually did the priority list while at work after i saw the announcement in the afternoon then came home 3 hours later and saw the pending restart on all 3 of mine - and they all got the update late last night or before noon

    Sorry for making the system work overtime :(

    Lucky you, I signed up when I first saw the post and still no update. I just did my nightly connection and still no update. i wonder if the request site really does anything or will everyone get it eventually? That would explain why you got it in 3 hours and I didn't.

    I didn't even know about the update until about 7 minutes ago.

    Sometimes people are actually watching a recording at 2 am. I thought it used to ask if you wanted to restart.

    I see from an earlier thread that I'm not the only person with this problem.

    I check my TiVos this morning and found both with the system install displayed. I didn't do a forced restart and if they restarted at 2AM, then it was still working on it 5 hours later (or both had crashed).

    Anybody know how long it should take to process the update after restarting?

    Is it just me or does the graphics look much sharper and more elegant?

    The S2s now have the S3/HD graphics.

    I signed up yesterday morning, forced a connection yesterday afternoon, and had the update installed in half an hour on my S3. My S2.5, which I also put on the priority list, did it all on its own at some point.

    I like 'em too, but at first the dots on the NPL seemed out of focus.

    Here are some bad comparison pics old on the left and new on the right

    Another new feature is that several things seem more asynchronous. For example, when you go letter-by-letter when finding programs to record by name, you previously had to wait after each letter for TiVo to compose and display the resulting list. Now you can continue to move the cursor around to choose the next letter immediately, and the list of shows appears when it's available.

    Maybe I just never noticed this before, but previously, when I was in Now Playing and I looked at programs on my other DVR, the Info button did not show me the additional info. Since my 9.1 update, I notice that I can now get the additional info on programs on my other DVR.

    This is really irritating. I hadn't signed up, figuring that I wouldn't get the update for a while (which is fine, and often a good idea). But one TiVo updated last night while the other didn't (even after a force update today), so now MRV doesn't work. So I've just put the second TiVo on the Priority list and will have to wait to see how long that takes.

    I don't know why they had to break MRV between 8.x and 9.x with this update. And they could set up a way to attempt simultaneous updates for all TiVos in an account.

    That's the key point in all this. None of us here probably have the specifications and source code, and without all that, we have to defer to those that do with regard to these things we don't know.

    It looks sharper, but I'm pretty sure (by now, after going back and forth on this since I first saw the new style on the S3) that it isn't really. AFAICT, the resolution is still 720x480. I think it's mostly due to increased color depth. In the old versions of the icons, you could see GIF-like dithering; the new ones are smoother.
