    Was hoping that someone could test that it works on something other than my laptop.

    Have you managed to get the program to load? I know it won't control your TiVo yet, but just want confirmation it loads up ok on another laptop.

    Yeah, really small and kind of randomly positioned. Not sure it adds much other than clutter. Hm.

    I wonder if TiVo want it to be there because it's their product? Strange how it was only on the guide previously.

    One thing that annoys me about Tivo compared to V+ is that when switching between menus the audio cuts out from the TV stream. Have they fixed that?

    TiVo Remote works here, on a Windows Vista SP2 laptop. It doesn't remember the IP address but it does control my TiVo.

    Should this be in a separate thread?

    It opens fine on Windows 8, you just get a smart protect warning but just ignore it.

    Preston,...
    I'm in Preston and still on 15.1 this morning.
    Anyone know of any changes to the schedule?

    Cheers,

    I tried a reboot in Portsmouth area this morning with no luck. Just have to wait a bit longer I suppose.

    That's a shame - I was hoping that it might be like the series 1 where it downloads the update but doesn't run it until 2am. If you re-booted it it would start straight away.

    The box is rebooted as a part of the software upgrade.

    When the update starts the box is taken over by it and it downloads - installs - and reboots.

    It you do not have the new software on - you do not yet have it available.

    The updates take place in the early morning (around 1-2am).

    Both boxes updated overnight without any problems. Menus seem a bit faster time will tell.
    Both boxes found by network ( Cat5 cables were already plugged in) the multi-room streaming looks like it will be good when fully implemented. At present can only use it as a way of checking what is already recorded on other Tivo

    Did I read somewhere there is a default user name and password when http-ing into the box?
