    I received 14.9 today. Funny thing happened.... I did the restart and th Tivo got stuck on the last screen. Stayed that way for an hour. Meanwhile, the recording light went on for a scheduled recording. I checked my iPad app and it connected and showed that the recording was occurring. After trying all the buttons, I did a cold reboot and the same thing happened. Called tech support and they suggested disconnecting the ethernet cable and restarting again. Problem fixed. Reconnected the ethernet cable, restarted, and all is well.

    I just got the update. Hate it. Frankly I'm so worn out by all the BS from Tivo I don't have the energy to explain why.

    Received the update this week on both my Premiere boxes.

    The Guide is so much quicker! Everything else seems about the same. Really hoping streaming is enabled soon. Time Warner's Copy Once flag on EVERYTHING is really cramping my style - especially now that Tivo took away the graphic that lets me know if a show is transferable or not.

    Hmmm how long as the "no transfer" logo been missing? Maybe its a sign that 'tivo' will enable streaming?

    They are no longer appearing since my Tivos moved from 14.8 to 14.9 this week.

    @sbiller - that's the best news I've heard all day! (re: @tivodesign)

    Both of my Non-Elite Premieres got the update last night. I thought it may never happen as I have read through the threads.

    Only looked at it for a moment. Had the Program Data has run out message...I told it to connect. It seems about the same at first glance. We'll see how it goes.

    I now have The only noticable differences i am seeing is the reboot time is much faster. The font in the service connection menu seems much brighter and the "My Shows" menus seem slower if possible using the HDUI. I will play with it more today. I will be migrating over to the other 14.9xx threads since i now have the update.

    Updating now. I had an issue with browsing my premiere with a 140060 I just brought back to life.

    I wounder if it might be caused by the pending restart?

    Still looking to see if it's known issue with the premiere or not.

    Edit= I can now browse and copy. :)

    I bought a TiVo premiere for mom for Christmas. It immediately updated to - first call after guided set-up. It was on 14.5 something out of the box.

    As I'm using OTA, I often find myself checking the signal strength feature to adjust the old rabbit ears as weather conditions change. After the update, I noticed the signal tone isn't working when a channel is selected and coming in with a relatively strong signal. In other words, there's no tone except when I'm moving the antenna around on a weaker channel. Odd and slightly annoying as I'm not always able to see the TV screen and must rely on the tone signal.

    Was also hoping for overall improved tuner performance with the update. Doubt that can be fixed by a software update, though. I find hooking up the antenna through the Tivo box brings worse performance than having it directly hooked up to my Vizio HDTV.

    Does anyone else using OTA find this true?

    It is pretty hard to tell because your TiVo splits the signal to it's 2 tuners and your TV doesn't. If you have a week signal the split can be enough to cause a difference in reception. My OTA signals vary with the weather also and there are times I have to rotate my antenna (I have a larger roof mounted antenna with a pre-amp and power rotor). Just the nature of OTA.

    Tonight I got my first lockup (no response to remote) and reboot ever after getting yesterday on my Premiere. The box took about 5 minutes to come back up.:mad:

    You were in the SDUI? Please describe in detail. You could press buttons on the remote, see the yellow light blinking on the TiVo with each button press, but there was no response from the TiVo?
