    Don't have it either, but at this point I'm not reading any benefits over 14.8....in fact some things are worse.

    Neither do I, but I am not sure I care one way or the other. My Premiere works well the way it is. Being OTA and only having 1 Premiere means streaming doesn't matter to me and I am not sure there really is anything else in the update that is of any interest to me.

    I can't understand why people want software updates from TiVo anymore. They are mediocre at best. We haven't had an innovative update in years. Nothing to get excited about here folks.....

    14.9 fixes some serious bugs like the blank screen bug and the HDUI 10 minute hang. If I had those issues, I would be quite excited.

    I appreciate a new thread on this, as TiVo has not changed how they roll out software updates since i joined, but there are always those new to the process with their hands out "ME ME ME". Hopefully this will cut down on the noise on the treads where the real data is, comparions of features, bug fixes, and any reduction in lag (even if minimal).

    I imagine with the bigger update expected next year the whining will be tremendous.

    Oh- I don't have it yet either, but I'm not clear yet if I will see anything, as I do not have any of the major slowdowns to the HDUI. Mostly slower than I want while scanning and deleting.

    +1 on the new thread :up:

    I'm still patiently waiting on the update for my Premiere. I will admit to executing a few extra connects over the past few days. Maybe we should start a thread to bring back the priority upgrade list!

    It's nice to see progress from time to time, even if it is just a few baby steps that usually lead to falling over and messing oneself.

    Oh, and still no 14.9 here, on either Tivo.

    Yea.. I am patiently waiting, as is one of my relatives who also has a Premiere. A couple times a day, I force a couple of connects just in case, but I'm not gonna make a big deal about it. If it was the "major" update that is scheduled for "early next year", I would be a bit more anxious I suppose. I like new stuff. :)

    It will probably be several more days before anyone else gets 14.9. The first batch is usually just to see if anything blows up. And if it doesn't after a while they will roll it out pretty quickly.

    I don't think I want it either from the sound of things.

    looks like it will be a few weeks until everyone gets it according to a tweet.

    If that holds true this is one of the longest roll outs I have seen that wasn't on a S2

    Is it just a delayed roll-out, or have they decided the current release is another cluster*** of epic proportions that's causing a bunch of glitches?

    or... in other words... what did the tweet say?

    Hasn’t it been causing reboots? One person is having to send their Tivo back.

    Actually the number of 'I just got 14.9.2 and....' threads and post seems to have stopped since Sat. Could they have stopped rolling it out because of all the issues being posted?

    Anytime there is an update there is the possibility of the TiVo being borked. This has always been the case. Fortunately I've never personally had an issue. But everytime there is an update it seems like someone, somewhere has a major issue.

    I'm guessing this is a little longer that normal as the SOAK period is over an extended holiday. I bet they initially anticipated starting the drop earlier in the month, but delayed due to some quick Elite bug fixing.
