One of my Tivos received 7.2.1a last night. It did not come with any messages
about the update. I don't see anything obviously changed in it.

Any idea what is new? Perhaps the video ipod/PSP transfers?

No, it was not for the Yahoo, etc services. I had those before the update and they are on my units that just have 7.2.1. I think they have said no update is required to get the new HME apps.

Nope, this isn't related to the new online services.

It's just some behind the scenes stuff...nothing that a customer would notice at all.

Cheers,

TivoPony,

Does the 7.2.1a require a reboot and is it being rolled out to everyone right away?
Yes it does (all software updates do), and no, this is just the start. Some minor behind the scenes tweaks. You can look and look, but you won't see anything different. ;)

What "behind the scenes stuff" exactly?

It tracks how much porn you watch. Now cut it out and go watch something wholesome.

Every Tivo software release has bugs and Tivo then has to send out updates to fix them.
I don't know that you are wrong, but if it were fixing a noticable bug, the Pony's comment about not being able to see a change is wrong.

and if the bug is not noticable, then both statements are true.

My Tivo got 7.2.1 today and one the features it told me was it can record a program if the previous program is running minute or two over.

7.2.1a is what the OP is talking about. :)

I was transferring back some recent LOST episodes, that I had archived to my Pc via the Tivo Desktop, today while I was at work. I got home this evening and was greeted with a message saying i had the new 7.2.1a, and I went to my Now Playing list and 2 of them didn't transfer back. I tried to initiated the transfer again and nothing is happening. I think 7.2.1a broke my go back function somehow.

Cmaeditor, sorry to hear about that. My suspicion is that your unit rebooted to install 7.2.1a, and that's what stopped your transfer. But it should resume just fine. If you still can't transfer after trying again, please drop me an e-mail with your TiVo Service Number.

I agree with Pony; there is absolutely no difference you will see between 7.2.1 and 7.2.1a. Sorry that we can't be more specific.

I will have to check to see if I got 7.2.1a on my Tivo. I was watching a show slightly delayed in the buffer and about 1 am I got the "Welcome Powering Up Screen" I figured it was probably an update and switched over the buffer on the other DVR which was on the same channel (Some coincidence isn't it). I checked back later on and things were normal with the Tivo, but there was no messages about an update.

I hope 7.2.1a contains the framework and billing/tracking for VOD. Who needs Netflix, TiVo can go it alone! Or maybe it's the code to add that invisible watermark to our content, so TiVo is in the free and clear when some dumb schmuck loads his shows on BiTorrent.

Though I'm betting it mostly has to do with powering the myserious TiVo-branded network adapter which should be dropping shortly. ;)

The thing I've noticed is my DVD TiVo has not spoiled any disks today, 6 good in a row, usually 3 failed to 1 good ratio.

UPDATE

Well the run of no failures was short lived, I'm back to spoiling 3 or so disks to get one good burn. Hmmnn...
