    Oh, the law of averages applies equally so given that I have had SO MANY units shipped back and forth it was bound to happen. It would just be better if TiVo would fix the issue or stop wasting my time (and shipping costs).

    I have had the 9.4L for 2 weeks.
    I came down this morning to a blank screen and unresponsive remote. I unplugged and let it reboot. I now have the 9.4 "official" release.

    I wasn't happy about the changes to the Wishlist, but my TivoHD has been rock-solid with no freezes/reboots in last 2 weeks, so I am satisfied.

    My TiVo is still constantly rebooting after getting 9.4 installed on it. :( It is now completely useless.

    TiVoJerry, just in case you didn't see my PM about this... please check your PMs. :)

    I got my update early yesterday morning. So far so good. I'm really happy with it.

    What changes?

    I got it on all my HD TiVo and even the original TiVo that got 9.4L got updated last night. I can see no difference between 9.4L and 9.4.

    TiVo drops the letter when they roll it out for general release.

    I finally got my 9.4 and my YouTube. I can see I'm going to be in trouble. Can someone give me the URL for YouTube Anonymous, just in case?

    9.4 hit my S3 two nights ago. Freaked me out a little, I went to turn on the TV late and noticed that my TiVo was in some kind of standby state...the clock wasn't showing and I wasn't getting any video out from the box, but I could hear the HDD whirring frantically. I had experienced the reboot problem a few weeks ago and swapped out HDDs as a result, and thought at first that it was happening again.

    After calming down, I thought that it could also be the service update so I decided to leave it until morning. Sure enough, the next day it was fine with the happy little 'You have received a service update!' note in my message queue.

    No issues thus far, and I am enjoying the new features.

    Hello all,

    Just got the update but was not expecting it. (haven't been on the forum in a while.) Didn't like that it rebooted after I hit record for a show that was buffered, but no biggie.

    Features updates seem ok, glad to finally have a realtime cc on/off feature though like someone mentioned, cc on mute would be nice but doesn't seem feasible. One question for those who have the update: Is the search by call sign a feature for OTA or am I missing something? I have FIOS and with so many channels it can be a pain if you don't know the channel # of a station. M

    My apologies if this has been answered or is newbie question as I did do a quick search before posting.

    I got 9.4 yesterday and tried out You Tube which actually looks better than I thought it would. I did have an issue with YouTube when using trick-play. It caused the audio to go out for about 10 seconds, but overall it works well. So streaming H.264 via an HME application works. I'd like it if the TiVo software gained the ability to transfer and store H.264 videos but I have a feeling that would significantly more work since the TiVo software was never designed to store anything other than MPEG-2 files.

    Other than You Tube, the Closed Caption toggle is also a godsend.

    Finally I found the network diagnostics menu that someone mentioned previously. It's in the Phone and Network screen and displays a "transfer history" screen that contains the speed of network transfers in Mbps as follows:
    1. Transfers to a PC/Series 2 TiVo
    2. Transfers from a PC/Series 2 TiVo
    3. Transfers to a S3/HD TiVo
    4. Transfers from a S3/HD TiVo
    5. Video Downloads
    6. You Tube (This only shows up after you use YouTube)

    So for people who care, you no longer have to estimate or use math to figure out your transfer speeds.

    So far I'm pretty happy with 9.4. I wasn't having many problems with 9.3, so I wasn't exactly waiting for a major fix for anything, but the handful of new features are nice in general. I think the ability to bring up the guide in a recording is the biggest advance; that and being able to jump forward and back 24 hours in the guide with one click.

    I was actually expecting the Youtube application to be SD based on previous applications (like Unbox and Swivel Search), but I was happily surprised to see the menus were in HD! I just hope they will plan on going back and updating Unbox and Swivel Search to high definition menus, because its pretty odd to navigate through the menu system and go from native HD menus (or at least close to HD given the text and icons are stretched SD) to an SD menu to click on Youtube, and then back to HD menus in Youtube itself.

    Probably to be used for a future enhancement. Meaningless right now.
