I've been away from the TiVo family for five years now (I can't believe that I remembered my username here!) but, after a recent move and switch to Cox I have decided that it is time to come back into the fold. I simply could not abide by a UI that actively discouraged me from watching TV, and that is all Cox is willing (or able) to provide. I have ordered a Premiere; that much is set in stone. I have a few questions, and while some of them have been answered (no, the entire UI has not yet been high-definitioned) others remain unanswered in the year-old reviews I've found. I'm hoping this friendly (and missed) community might be able to help me out. 1. Has a software update been released that taps into the second processor core yet? 2. Are the delays between menus that plagued reviews a year ago still a common occurence? Thanks in advance for your help. I'm glad to be coming back into the TiVo fold and am looking forward to my new Premiere. Any tips or tricks for a "newbie" that you are worth sharing?
