However, I am well aware of the reported performance and stability issues related to the new HD UI. The most common and disruptive behavior appears to be DVR lockups, requiring a hard reboot (aka pulling the plug). While many have chosen to work around this by running the original SD interface full time, for now we’re keeping the Premiere, with its incomplete and sluggish HDUI, on our secondary TV — where we rarely watch recorded programming or much of anything else that requires flipping through the menus. However, the days of caution may be behind us.
Earlier this week, TiVo’s Twitter account reported there would be two software updates hitting in the near future. The first landing at the end of this month, the second poised for a May delivery. As it turns out, the plan has changed. And last night 14.1c started rolling according to employee Margret Schmidt and forum reports. Perhaps addressing that most pressing lockup issue. Or, maybe not.
