    As it usually happens around 2am then I would assume it to be 2am on the 23rd, in your case.

    Noticed the tivo guy on the now showing list this morning, so that shows I have 15.2 (still checked ;))

    Quite a bit faster in the menus, and the major thing is the ability to use a keboard remote ( iphone/android app) for text entry

    and only one major change-moan so far:

    Films no longer show the year in brackets in the my shows list
    (even those films recorded before 15.2),
    which is a pity as that was a good way of telling them apart from shorter recordings :(

    Also just tried my usb wireless keyboard... and IT WORKS!
    The keyboard is a bit bulky to keep near the TV, might have to buy one of these mini-keyboards now ;)

    YES! Must get one ordered.

    That said, I have read somewhere that we will all be receiving free Bluetooth Tivo remotes when they enable that function.

    Surprised this morning to find I had the update! Why do I always forget I'm in the Knowlsey area, not the Liverpool area?

    The only time I've noticed an improved speed is when typing a channel number in, it changes instantly now or jumps to it on the guide instantly rather than having to wait. First time I've been able to change channels that quick on digital cable!

    I'll have to try the keyboard later as well, sounds good, and have to try apwheeler's programme.

    It doesn't allow watching recordings yet - but it does allow deleting from the other tivo - maybe useful for now if you have duplicate recordings.

    West London - update went smoothly for me.
    The free version of Peanut Remote in iPhone working fine for me (after I remembered to enable network remote control from TiVo settings).
    TiVo Desktop doesn't find it though.

    For me, displaying My Shows completely now takes about 4 seconds, rather than about 8. So roughly twice as fast.

    Although any improvement is welcome, to feel fast it would need to be about 50 times faster.

    Just got the update. Both my boxes continually winge about their network address being 'invalid' so none of the android apps work. Will try rebooting and if necessarily resetting them.. clearly a glitch.

    Multiroom streaming works, FSVO 'works' - every programme is marked 'cannot be played due to broadcaster restrictions' even BBC ones.


    grr a quick look with wireshark shows the network is working fine but TiVo seems hardcoded to reject my addresses. Thanks VM. I'll have to move the tivos on to their own VLAN which is going to make 3rd party app access 'fun' to put it mildly... never tried to bridge multicast before.

    YES! Finally! No more PIN protection in this child-free house :D

    Also, is it me or are all the (main) screens now in HD? They certainly look like they are; or at least they've been updated somehow as they all look nice and clean and clear now!

    On the downside, and in no way related to the update, Sky have forced VM to follow their lead and not allow access to any already-recorded content from channels to which you are not subscribed; ie movies :mad: :(

    I noticed a few SD screens when I was testing, but not sure if there are fewer or more.

    Still reserving judgement.. The EPG fell over with a red doughnut of death when I tried to go into it. Didn't have time to do anything other than reboot & hope it works this evening.

    Lots more potential though - especially if we can get the remote protocol doing useful stuff.

    Again, sorry but no such problem here. Hope you get it sorted though :(

    I'm finding the update has really improved menu performance, much quicker moving from menu to menu but seems to be resetting 'favorites' back to 'all channels' in the guide alot ?

    TIVO_York99 - you're not the only one...

    Had a panic last night when TiVo went into cyclic reboots (now I know what others have moaned about!) just after midnight.

    Panic was unnecessary as still no update at 02:00 :-(

    I think I'm missing something.

    When you press the little red button to record something, it doesn't give an option to add pre- and post- minutes to the recording time as it did before the upgrade. It has a default of one minute before and four minutes after (which is not much use) and I have to go back in again to change it to the settings I want.

    I can't seem to find anything in Help & Settings to change it to the default values that I want??

    Thanks to the vocal minority, the padding is now forced. :( Apparently VM think this is an improvement.

    It does seem a bit silly not to be able to adjust the default settings

    Well then, here's a note to anyone from VM who might be looking in: Please give us the ability to set our own default.

    That is all.

    I still get horrendous lipsync issues on itv/itvhd despite the update. I was hoping that would be cured.
