TiVo's current firmware is SLOW and CLUNKY as hell, so an upgrade is LONG overdue.
Granted, it will take a few months to be rolled out but as the news is now official, we all have something to look forward to!!
Have you not seen the reviews from the trial areas! They just put extra pictures for paid for on demand stuff you might not subscribe too, to try and tempt more money from you, whilst slowing the interface down even more and making it more convoluted to actually watch and record tv. There is no mention of bug fixes or anything that benefits the customer, just a marketed ploy to tick the SKYQ-esque box.
How can I tell which is the latest version of firmware? My Tivo has slowed considerably in the last few months, yet recently, I have noticed the box has some "new" features and I am beginning to wonder if these are connected.
If it's true what thanksfornothing suggests ("There is no mention of bug fixes or anything that benefits the customer, just a marketed ploy to tick the SKYQ-esque box."), then I am afraid the Tivo's remaining lifespan in my living-room is limited.
