    I also want to add my personal thanks to Margret. I appreciate the openness about the changes and the rollout. I also REALLY appreciate the priority request list. I got the update sometime Saturday night/Sunday morning. It's nice to finally be one of the first ones to get an update instead of waiting until everyone else already has it (usually about 2-3 weeks).

    Yeah, I figured. I'm just really glad I didn't miss the boat.

    Margret's "insider" involvement takes me back to the feeling we all enjoyed when TiVo was "new" and we all had insider tips and tricks along with a feeling of belonging to the future of this inovative product. Well ----- it's back!!!!

    I emailed Margret on Friday afternoon at 1:47 eastern time but as of last night didn't have the update on either of my boxes. Should I email again or is it already in the system and it just takes time? I didn't force any calls so it could have come in early this morning with the 2:00 call.

    Thanks to everyone here and to Tivo for the work on the priority list.

    I also want to thank Margret for her weekend replies to my emails about the missing "Native" resolution feature. Her attitude is a breath of fresh air at Tivo.

    I believe most people who got on the priority list had to force the call

    I can't imagine how forcing a call would make a difference (except getting the update before the scheduled call.)

    I asked to be on the priority list yesterday. I will intentionally NOT force a call. I'll update with results.

    [Added: Did not force any calls. Didn't get the 20.2 at 3pm Monday. Did get it 5pm Tuesday.]

    I too would like to thank Margret, it is so nice to have the open dialog like we did in the past. It keeps us all excited about our TiVo's, to know what the upcoming plans are and especially when we get to try out the software a little before the general public release.

    Very nice and please keep up the great communication.

    Hey, I like to thank TiVo-Margret too for her one post.

    Unless I'm missing a whole lot of TiVo Inc. love that I missed posted somewhere else around here.

    :D

    I emailed her on Friday at 3:17 PM Pacific Time and my update showed up on Sunday.

    I did force the connection few time before then and restarted my box.

    Make sure you have the latest software in place and double check that you provided correct TIVO unit credentials.

    P.S. I love the new update it makes the TIVO UI faster and much cooler to interact with. Great job everyone at TIVO keep it up. Now I will keep my eyes open for Preview and Elite boxes and well as some promotion for current Tivo owners.

    Got an auto-reply saying the list is full. Guess I'll have to wait.

    I actually have a TiVo Premiere XL just haven't updated my list below yet.

    I emailed margret yesterday but haven't yet received the update. I tried forcing a call but it just says succeeded. Anything else I can try?

    Thanks

    Margret said on Twitter that it will take a couple of days to process all the requests from this weekend.

    Of course (being cynical) now that Margret has begun making customers happier, executive management will conclude that the related costs are too high, and she will be reassigned...

    Thank you, Margret & your team! Looks great.

    Like some others I am confused why my 480 channels are coming up as 720p but guess I can live with that to have the HD menus.
