    7 years of Tivotion on my part is finally worth it with this update bringing me more than I could hope for from Tivo. This is as good as it has ever been for me.

    Thanks for the early upgrade Margret!!

    I am starting to think that with my Tivo Premieres I may not need the Rokus and PS3 anymore to meet my streaming needs. Just hope Tivo can keep moving in the direction they are now and not get bogged down again.

    These are great products for those of us who have cut the cord!

    I was away on family business and missed the chance to ask to be included in the preview of 20.2

    I'm updated and finally able to use the HDUI again! It's polished, quick and functional -- with a stylish design refresh too! It just works--feels like the old TiVo.

    Thank you Margret for adding me to the priority list.

    I had to replace my seagate 2tb drive because since the 14.9 update my tivo would randomly reboot and lock into a reboot loop. The resolution was to unplub wait 30 sec and plug back in. Would be fine for a day or two then back again. So I was exscited to see the update to 20.2 Sadley the result was that the bug remained. I had no issue with the drive up to the new updates from 14.7 to 14.9 I did test the drive to see if it was a hard drive problem no such luck. I did some reasearch and found the recommended upgrade drive to be western digital. (I had thought I had a WD drive for my 2tb.... turns out i was wrong) So I went out purchased a new 2tb drive and made sure that it was WD.. I used wdidle to check the settings. Noticed that the original drive was set to disable, matched this setting and have no issues since the update. I am a little disapointed that the Seagate drive Was now imcompatible, But Find that the perfomance from the WD seems to be far better then the seagate was.

    Overall I would say that the 20.2 update is huge success, as with all software there will be some minor issues such as mine, but I would say that the Update is created to work with the original specs not after market upgrades. That said I think its great that TIVO is now working hard to make a reality the promises of the past for the current TiVo generation!

    I am a little intrigued that we skipped so many revisions in the software, and jumped to 20.2 prehaps some light can be shed on this?

    regards...

    I believe that the issue of version numbers has to do with cable company branded versions.

    if its the same type of Tivo as your other one with the update, you can just clone the hdd over and voila the update is done.

    This is a merge of the version they gave to Virgin for their Tivos. To be more correct, I believe it is bring the two branches together to make it easier to develop both.

    From what I understand, TiVo is going to eventually get *all* Premieres unified to the same software version.
    I think TiVo jumped our stand alone Premieres to v20 to allow room for the other (cable company provided) platforms to develop further (if needed).

    Yes, I got 20.2 a few days ago, and it's a really nice improvement. Margret, if you read these replies, congrats to you and to Tivo!!!!

    This makes the Premiere the best DVR money can buy again! Just keep improving it, please!

    Thanks again.

    Or better yet, by starting to recommend TiVo to your friends, family, and coworkers. Something I unfortunately had to stop doing doing about 6 months after I got the Premiere. 20.2 won't turn it completely around for me quite yet, although it is a HUGE step in the right direction. Let's see what the Spring update does, first :)
