    Did Hulu get worse too? I was sort of thinking of switching my subscription over from Netflix since that app got so bad, so disheartening to hear Hulu is no better?

    TiVo doesn't support Hulu. It is Hulu+.... totally different thing. With Hulu+, you get to pay money for the privilege of being forced to watch commercials! And you can't even watch everything available on Hulu. One of the stupidest service offerings I have ever seen.

    Agreed. I'm on month 2 of my 6 month free offer and I've accessed Hulu+ twice. I look for other ways to access content. It rarely has anything so exclusive that makes it worth watching commercials.

    Agreed. Almost all of it are questions that have been asked several times before.

    Another new survey today. Lots of questions about remotes. Added my general feedback at the end:

    * Add Android support for the Stream. It is crazy you don't have it at release time.

    * Add support to stream content from Premiere to inexpensive add-on boxes with no fees.

    * Focus less on features and more on performance, stability, bug-fixes, and enhancements to the core DVR functionality of the Premiere- menus, guides, watching recorded content

    * TiVo Android Tablet version app is so slow it is almost unusable. Very disappointed.

    * HDUI is too dependent on live Internet connection. Not enough caching. Performance still needs improvement.

    * Still no way to store all settings, channels, ratings and preferences in case of hardware failure.

    * Would love to have adjustable (faster than realtime) playback speed, with adjusted audio.

    They asked if there were buttons you don't use, and buttons you wish you had.

    I asked for a Closed Caption toggle button.

    Is the 'Zoom' button essential on the Premieres?

    I never use it on my TivoHD, and voted that it wasn't very useful.

    I hope I don't ruin it for you guys. :p;)

    I use my zoom button all the time to get out of the guide and go straight to live tv.

    Zoom button is quite useful for watching SD programming. I use it probably once a week, which is 1,000 times more than I use, for example, the replay key.

    I use the Zoom button many, many times a day with the HDUI on my Premieres. Since you use the Zoom button to get back to the full screen of the content playing in the upper right corner.

    I voted not very useful. Seemed like they were fishing to see if people would name that button as not useful on their own in an earlier question.

    Maybe they should just make it programmable so that you can put any other learned remote function on there.

    For feedback I complained about the horrible YouTube app and the lack of Amazon Prime free streaming.

    That would require a learning remote.

    Excellent and I also wish I thought of that. I requested a sleep button. I also use Zoom after pressing Guide and when pressing other buttons when viewing the HD screens.
    I complained about the latter and the slide remote that starts glitching right after the 90 day warranty expires.

    I guess I'm spoiled since the slide and the glow remote both have learning ability. I should have added in my feedback that they should all have that feature since I can't get my TV power button to work without it.

    I asked for native resolution again so my video processor can clean up the video.

    tivo's had learning remotes for years and years. what's the difference if they let you program 2-3 buttons or 10?

    I think the 4 colored buttons were pointless- either make them useful in the US (even if the UI would "learn what you want"- for example maybe you could have a screen to pick that blue toggles CC on and off)- or make them programmable so i can add sleep timer from my tv and the like. They're almost pointless now.
