    Sounds like TiVo is currently beta testing a new UI named "Palms".

    Can't wait to hear what this is new UI is all about?

    I've been involved with TiVo beta before. Wholehome streaming and mobile streaming (android). Rule one is never post, text or give any public info about beta!

    Yeah, I was surprised at that post shared here from DSLReports. He must have alternate identities to keep him from being kicked out of the Beta program.

    Some leakage is always inevitable, such as the project name. Major leakage will get you kicked out. Anonymous major leakage will get *everyone* kicked out. They've had to completely drain the pool twice in the lifetime of the program...

    Interesting! I can certainly understand why a mass beheading may be necessary. I do respect a company developing technology or devices who need things under wraps. If they spend the time and money to develop it, then they deserve the rewards, and let the competition do their own work.

    In this case, if TiVo cares to identify the leaker, it should not be all that hard to determine the most likely suspect(s), as it is unlikely too many of their beta testers reside in Bellingham WA as b10010011 does.

    Being a beta probably means it's far along and release not far away? Just glad to hear TiVo hasn't abandoned TiVo DVRs.

    I've been in various betas in the past that were scrubbed because of leaks, it's very disappointing to have one Richard ruin it for everyone.
    I wouldn't make that assumption, I've done enough beta projects with enough vendors over the past 20 years that I've had more than a few that died on the vine, and what became TE4 was in beta for a very very long time.

    Cannot wait for all the "it's new" haters to talk about how bad Palms(TE5) is and you should downgrade(upgrade) to TE3/4.

    That will become the TCF nickname 20 minutes after it is released and a few bugs have been found.

    inb4 the flurry of threads about how TE5 sucks despite having never used it, and 4,000 separate posts asking for downgrade instructions for hardware that doesn't support being downgraded (here's looking at you, Bolt Vox OTA)

    For those that like TE4, good for them. I don't plan on touching TE3. And if they can make TE5 without discontinuing TE3 or TE4, good for everyone. The more options the better. All I care about is not removing what I like, which is TE3.

    Now, where is TiVo_Ted or someone else to calm our fears (hopefully)?

    I'm not sure TE3 will ever "go away", at least for Roamio/Premiere platforms that currently run it (given the age of the Roamio, I can't imagine it'd run Palms very well - it isn't spectacular under Hydra as it is) but aside from the minor fix last month, it's basically frozen in time.

    TiVo_Ted no longer works for TiVo, hasn't since early 2020.

    As an aside, I wonder if the recent decision to stop activating plans on existing Premiere hardware is related to the "new hardware" that's supposedly coming down the pipe. Perhaps Palms becomes the next-gen of TE4, for Roamio and newer, while the existing lifetime fleet of Premieres are allowed to stay as-is, like the existing lifetime S3/HDs.

    TE4 sucking had nothing to do with it being new. It's about good things that were removed and bad things that were added to the Tivo OS.
