    Yup, but start blaming your TiVo!

    My guess is that it is major bug fixes that couldn't wait for a more complete release. Why would they bother with minor bugs?

    Just got it. Don't notice anything different yet. Seems faster but probably my imagination. Wasn't having any problems to re-produce.

    Very bummed that it's not 8.1. Been checking this forum daily since early November for the "November update". It finally gets here and it's 8.0.1c. :mad:

    ok how about just "bug fixes"? ;-}

    i take it the audio/pixelation thing is only happening on digital broadcasts?

    Maybe it's too early but I think they fixed the loss of analog channels. Just checked all my analogs and they tuned OK on both tuners.

    I am bummed too about the november update too, but if you look closely, it was never said November 2006. They were probably referring to November 2007, or 2008.

    The update has caused my machine to go into a constant reboot cycle. Anyone seen this before?

    It definately didn't fix the duplicate channels in the guide bug. I had re-run guided setup last weekend to get rid of them and now after the upgrade and reboot Their Back!

    Time to run guided setup over again.

    After the update my Tivo went into an endless reboot cycle as well.
    To fix it, I pulled both of the cable cards out, powered up and when it started to complain about not having the cablecards inserted, I inserted them back into the Tivo. It took a little bit for it to get itself running happy again (about 10 more minutes) but so far hasn't rebooted anymore.

    I checked the cablecards, and it appears as though my slot 2 is causing the problems. If I insert either card in slot 2, after a minute it causes a reboot. Slot 1 has no problem. So it looks like I'll have to phone Tivo tommorrow and see if they have a fix.

    One good note, it appears as though channels 40-50 are tuning on both tuners now.

    another update to my problem. It is apparent that it is either cablecard inserted in either slot that will cause a reboot. Ugh. Damn Tivo.

    I didn't either, but I know my TiVo rebooted 'cause I had to repogram 30-second-skip.

    Ditto here, I assumed we had a power fluctuation or something. (basically because we lost power Monday for 2-3 minutes for no apparent reason)

    I forced the update and it fixed the issue of losing one tuner on analog channels 40-50. It did have to reboot twice, but the fix was well worth it.

    I hoped this update might address this use... http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?p=4654779#post4651991
    (see below in that thread for some 8.0.1c issues I've faced.

    However I think its to early to tell if this really fixed the issue. Reboots did solve the problem for a little bit... well for me anyway.

    looks like the reboot somehow caused a hard drive error on my tivo. I did a complete format and it looks like it's working now. Here's a link to the topic that helped me.

    I'm going to have to phone back Tivo and tell them that this was a tivo error, not a Time Warner problem like they told me. The cs told me they had never heard of this error occurring before, so I'll have to change that.

    Were the Beta testers testing the 8-01C or the 8.1?

    Well... the one picture that ended up on the thread of folks setup had a 'recently deleted folder' and from what Ive heard... 8.0.1c doesnt have that.

    The guy at Tivo I talked to said HE was running 8.1 on his personal box.

    So, I don't know what this update did. I still don't get channel 121, I thought they said next update would take care of missing channels.

    So does anybody know what this update did except change the b to a c?
