    I did not sign up for the priority page and I also got 20.7.2 (today I believe). Not really sure what's different except for the colors of the menus and the Tivo logo now being 100% grey.

    ok, that blows. This was always very convenient..

    (Though one place it NEVER remembered your place was Recently Deleted.. If you have more than a page of recently deleted, entering a show and back left would always put you back up at the very top of the list.. Which was a pain the few times I was trying to find a specific episode to un-delete.)

    Just signed up for the update, forced connect ~60 seconds later and it downloaded. That seems oddly fast, maybe update has simply been pushed out for all? Anyway installed fine on my 3TB WD drive, no lost channels either (Roamio OTA)

    Yeah, problem with me also. I have Lasik monovision, and the new light menu colors on my Roamio is not enough contrast for me. I NEED the original high contrast colors back.

    I'm sure I won't be the only person with eye contrast issues that will need a solution for this problem.

    To me that's not a minor problem. That's how I tell if my Tivo rebooted. If it resets to the top I check if there's been an update then I go around the house checking to see if I need to set the clock on various appliances after a power outage.

    You don't. These are the colors that TiVo has been using on the Bolt since it came out. The Roamio/Premiere now have the Bolt user interface, including its colors and icons. The same thing happened a year or so after the Roamio came out; the Premiere got an update that gave it the Roamio yellow. Now we're all on Bolt white.

    TiVo has never allowed you to choose colors; you're stuck with whatever color combination is currently in favor at TiVo headquarters.

    We probably won't see another color change unless TiVo releases new hardware (in which case the new colors may be exclusive to the new hardware for a year or two). Although it looks like we may see an entire revamp of the UI rather than just color tweaks the next time TiVo makes big changes. (Search for "Hydra" to see videos.)

    I think i'm in the minority but i'm looking forward to Hydra. I like the darker color scheme. It's similar to what i had with FIOS Quantum.

    I'm looking forward to Hydra as well. But assuming it will still be rolled out, I plan on trying it out on one TiVo first, before I commit to using it on all my TiVos.

    I only have a Roamio and a mini so unless it is like most updates where it has to install on both i won't be able to test it on one.

    Overall, I think the new interface is an improvement. The color palette has moved into the more current palettes that seem to be prevalent on the web and apps nowadays. Kudos to TiVo for not going to the full low-contrast route with the text colors that so many web sites seem to have done. That garish yellow bar is gone. Finally. Yea!

    The menus appear to have been reorganized a bit. Once I found things, the new menu structure seems to make more sense to me. Another plus.

    I'm still seeing some fundamental architectural issues with the software. BUGS! But that's not surprising.

    With a designer in charge of Software Engineering at TiVo, one can expect to see that the priority will more of "how it looks" and less of "how well it works."

    Actually, the Hyrda color palette we have seen reminds me more of DirecTV than Fios Quantum. I have had both in the last two years with Quantum still in the house. Fios is garish, not dark.

    I didn't mean exactly alike but it does have the same guide colors. As well as some of the black translucent color.

    I have no idea what you are talking about. And I have Quantum currently. They are nothing alike.

    20.7.2 is horrid, visually, practically and otherwise too. My Roamio HD received it but my Plus hasn't. Since the update the HD is slower and there are stuttering issues with streaming from the Plus. The HD is in the den with hubby so I'm not constantly exposed to it. I don't know why the Plus didn't receive it and I really don't want it. :( Well... at least now I know it's not dying, which is why I came here today.

    For what it's worth several users commented they thought it seemed faster. Seems about the same to me. I haven't had any issues streaming with Netflix on our Roamio Pro. I've not tried Amazon Prime or Vudu yet.

    As I mentioned in another thread, I'm waiting to see if my wife comments on the changes at all as I have not mentioned the update. :)

    I never got the update, my Roamio and three Minis were all on the list. Looks like it's broken again for some.

    I'll be glad when my Roamios and Mini get it. I want a consistent interface across all my TiVos. Since my Bolts are my main TiVos that I use.

    I find that I'm disappointed with TiVo updates more often than not. They should have a "do not update me" list instead of a Priority Update List...
