    Does anyone know if this fixes the Standby problem?

    You're not supposed to ask questions like these. After all, it's either fixed or it's not fixed...

    Hm... if someone asks me if they should buy a Tivo, should I list every bug I haven't personally confirmed has been fixed (which would include all intermittent bugs and all bugs I haven't personally encountered)? After all, I wouldn't want to mislead anyone.

    For the record, I own 2 tivos, and I've bought 4 as gifts for other people.

    I know that the S3 doesn't have TTG. This fix also includes the code needed for the Amazon/Unbox thing, which is what I was asking about.

    I found out in another thread that it will work on the S3, but thanks for your "help". :rolleyes:

    Not sure if region matters, but I did a force connection today (due to Gateway error from this morning) and got the update and I am in Florida here.

    Is a WAN-connected Toshiba SD-H400 under "Basic TiVo" considered a "Broadband Series 2" for the purposes of this update? I'm pretty sure it doesn't qualify for TTG with just the "basic" service so don't see how the 8.1a would be useful/needed.

    would seem to indicate they plan to roll unbox before the next major service update....

    I had some KidZone (KZ) related issues after the update yesterday. My box would not relock into KZ after 4 hours. I restarted the box and it did not start up in KZ. I can manually enter into KZ via the Nowplaying list. As a last effort, I turned off and then on KZ, confirmed my KZ settings, and entered KidZone for the night. Until this point it had worked flawlessly.
    Tivo is the best third parent I have ever had.

    Well I got 8.1a on my S2. I didn't have any of the channel change transfer issues, but I did have 1 show that I could never transfer because there was some blocking in the video stream.

    On a whim I tried it again and it still wouldn't transfer so it looks as if 8.1a isn't a panacea for ToGo transfer issues. Oh well.

    My 8.1a issue is bad. Now, my wireless internet will not work and my tivo resets every 5 minutes, if the wireless adapter is plugged in. Needless to say I don't know if my tivotogo issue is fixed.

    No doubt. I'm tired of Tivo releasing software with new features such as this Amazon stuff over releasing software that fixes the gazillion bugs that the community took time to list out for them in threads like you mention.

    I'm sooooo tired of the bug where Tivo loses its spot while navigating the Tivo Suggestion list. I'm guessing this bug would take very, very little programming time to correct, yet Tivo continues to press on delivering new features instead of correcting the long list of outstanding issues. Am I the only one that feels this way?

    Yes.

    It isn't a zero-sum game, just because they are adding enhancements doesn't mean that they are not working on bug fixes, too. They just take time and need to be tested. Patience, grasshopper.

    I was on the phone with customer support for about an hour. We did finally get my network adapter connected, but it still resets every few minutes if it's connected. This sucks!

    No comment on the possibility of a failing HD?

    I got the update last night. The following "phone home" connection failed. I tried to force a connection, Tivo responds with "no network adapter" error.
    Next, I restarted the Tivo without the adapter plugged in. After Tivo was back up and running, I plugged the adapter back in.
    All is good again. :)
