    That UI looks different, too.

    I just forced an update to get the new software.

    EDIT: No software update available on my Roamio.

    Clicking on a tile now brings up the above new screen (to me at least). Sort by Date/Season.

    Looks a lot like TE3, from what I remember. Dave Zatz said this release would pull back some of the Hydra UI paradigm. I like and am used to Hydra after using it for a year, so not sure I want to go back.

    It used to be standard practice for them to have limited rollout a few weeks ahead of general rollout.

    Um, new UI looks better in those two pictures. Wonder if they fixed the "grid" too? Guess we will know soon enough.

    but for only one user to mention they got it and others not get it yet seems strange

    It's a mistake or a real slow rollout. We'll know if the actual release has a different RC number that someone hit "Send" and not "Save". :)

    What I would worry about is if they stopped the release due to a bug. :eek:

    My sister got it on a Roamio that I had given here. It was signed up for prior pre releases.

    I got 21.8.3.RC2 a few days ago Saturday (at least that’s when I noticed the new autoplay next episode feature). It confused me because TiVo did not send a message through the message system with update notes and neither the TiVo website or this forum had anything about it. It’s rare that I get ahead of the line for something like this as I didn’t specifically sign up for any early access to a rollout.

    So far, the update seems stable to me. I haven’t encountered any noticeable bugs yet.

    Oh, wait maybe it’s because I signed up for the Mira beta testing?! Did everyone just get update 21.9.1.RC1?

    kidding...:p
