In what may be one of the final Series2 platform updates, TiVo has launched a priority request page for the Fall 2008 Software (9.3.2). This S2 refresh consists of just a few UI tweaks, designed to spotlight broadband content and emphasize Swivel Search:
This service update reorganizes some of the TiVo Central menu choices, specifically adding a menu item for Video on Demand content from TiVo and it’s partners. If your DVR is connected to broadband, you’ll be able to enjoy the latest movies, television shows, and web videos directly from this menu. You’ll also find a new way to start Swivel Search anytime you pause a program!
Thanks to TiVo Community member tewcewl, I’ve got some exclusive photos of the new look to share. What you’ll notice in these pics is a new Videos on Demand menu item and that Music, Photos, & Too Much Other Stuff has become Music, Photos, & Showcases – with Showcase content indeed demoted to a sub menu item. More significant, when pausing programming you’ll now have an option to pull up additional info via Swivel Search as shown in that top image.
I assume these modifications will also make their way onto the Series3/HD platform later this year – as I doubt TiVo is ready to roll with that massive interface overhaul. Though, I’d love to be wrong…
