Worth it for a TiVo upgrade? Or wait...?

I was going to wait until all the bugs were ironed out before upgrading my Tivo to the V6, but the stream to tablet feature sounds useful.

What's the latest on the V6 - worth upgrading now for an existing customer?

Thanks.

There have been relatively few issues with V6. Some people have experienced an issue with recording on standby, that's not affected mine.

HAYU currently doesn't work.

Just be aware that streaming and downloading to a tablet etc is dependent on licensing restrictions, so not all content can be accessed this way.

But I have to say, I personally think its a decent upgrade.

A mate who has had a play with my V6 is in the process of ordering one, which kind of speaks for itself.

Well yes and no. Its a good thing. Unless your an SU and your better half is convinced you've got some mystical power* to render the app non functional. Just to spite her. And you get asked 4 times a day if theyve fixed it yet.

*Disclaimer Su's have no powers, mystical or otherwise
