    So theyre sending it out in the daytime :eek: ?

    Would make more sense to send it out at 3am.

    I don't read that as the update being done during the daytime - I still think it will be overnight but of course people could still be watching TV early in the morning.

    What is more strange for me is that the box will lose recordings etc. if switched off during the upgrade.

    Didn't the series ones use two partitions therefore if the update failed it didn't matter and would just try again later?

    I've just checked and I got the message as well.

    It does specifically say that the update will be done overnight.

    Would be good if it did use a separate partition so it could rollback, and if it scheduled itself for a window when it wasn't recording anything.

    At least, that's how I'd have designed it, but who knows ?! :)

    Yes I got that message, but only when I went to the Home screen, which I rarely do so it was good I noticed it!

    Since the OS isn't on the hard drive on the VM Tivo I'd be surprised if you could lose all your recordings any more than you could during a power failure... you could lose any that are *currently* recording, I guess..

    Got the message last night as well, then when I went up to bed I noticed that all the lights were on on the TiVo, so hoping I'll come home to find the update has been performed, or it had just crashed and was rebooting, but they seemed to stay on for longer than they do during a reboot!

    I'm in the Aztec zone (Bristol, not Crystal maze).

    When all the lights go on - its the start of a reboot.

    During a software update there is a reboot - but even then the lights will only show all at the same time for 1-2 seconds.

    When they all are on and stay on - it is time to worry.

    29th November is the date for the Spotify TiVo App launch

    You'll need to be a spotify premium subscriber to use it.

    I've received a letter through the post now advising of the update. You can't say they haven't given us enough warning!

    Indeed, it all seems terribly organised. A far cry from the days when we hoped in vain for a system message or two for our S1 TiVos, only to be eternally spurned :)

    Got the update last night. Everything does feel snappier, but that could be my imagination.

    The guide catch-up integration improvements are fantastic - definitely how it should have been done in the first place.

    There is now a whole bunch of networking stuff in the menus, but I can't test anything as I'm waiting for a wireless bridge that I ordered.

    And best of all, TiVo man now appears in the menus and TV guide!

    If you are still waiting and there is anything you want me to report back on or test for you, just let me know.

    Can you post your software version, flash version, and HDUI version from the System Info screen?

    Thanks!

    Ok,

    So i've just wired up the tivo updated last night and dhcp'd an ip address of my local lan. Here are the ports that are open


    • Nmap scan report for 192.168.1.63
      Host is up (0.0031s latency).
      Not shown: 997 filtered ports
      PORT STATE SERVICE
      443/tcp open https
      2190/tcp open tivoconnect
      2191/tcp open tvbus

    Https predictably responds with an htttp auth, anyone know how to get a set of credentials - it must be something to do with the way the ipad app authenticates or some such.

    tivoconnect is a tcp service that disconnects when you try to type much to it.

    tvbus is a tcp service that swallows input and doesnt respond.

    I dont know if either of those 2 services are well understood yet - off to try to find out

    I'd rather see a picture of the TiVo Man. Anyone? Thanks!
