    Sorry if this was mentioned in the other thread. It was a bit long and this issue has been discussed so many times I thought it was worth it's own thread.

    I restarted my Premiere the other night and sat there expecting to wait 6-10 minutes for it to restart.

    It only took about TWO minutes. Just to make sure I wasn't crazy, I went ahead and restarted a second time and it was still around two minutes. I didn't actually time it but the reboot was MUCH faster than it used to be.

    Oooops.. Didn't realize there was a summary on the first page. I didn't actually time it. It just felt like two minutes.

    It's nice to know that Tivo is truly innovating. It only took them a little over a decade to reach this benchmark. :D

    I don't think they did anything other than enabled both cores. This seems to have a huge affect on startup time (but not much in the HDUI). I doubt TiVo actually wastes very much development resources on how fast the Tivo starts up since it is meant to be on all the time.
