TiVo has quietly started rolling out system software 9.3 to TiVo Series2 owners. In addition to what I suspect is under the hood bug squashing and some minor presentation updates, Megazone reports the replacement software adds progressive downloading (view Amazon Unbox and podcast content as it comes in) already available to Series3 and TiVo HD owners. I assume those (we) S3/HD owners will also be subject to an update at some point, but I haven’t yet seen any reports on the forum. Keep an eye on tivo.com/priority to get in early.
The New England Comcast-TiVo rental units will also be getting a series of improvements:
the next software release for the Comcast DVR with TiVo Service is now targeted to begin rolling out next week, beginning with the towns surrounding our Derry NH cable system, and will be rolling out to the other systems where Comcast DVR with TiVo service is available over the following few weeks. To recap, this software release will include a firmware fix for the reboot loop bug on DCH boxes (aka the “8888” display bug), enable Dolby Digital output for DCH boxes, correct the Guide HD filter behavior, and include other bug fixes.
