Has anyone else noticed extremely slowed down responses in pretty much all
of the UI interaction with the TiVo since the ToGo upgrade? I have one TiVo
that didn't get the upgrade (Humax DVD burner, no upgrade available yet) and
three that I had upgraded. Those three all exhibit the same new behaviors
of, in PC language, seems like a lot of memory paging going on. I don't see
any other posts here about slow-downs after this upgrade, so maybe, uh, my
power cords are kinked. ;]

Thanks,

Ray at work

Extremely slow? No.

Most have noticed some things slower, other things faster.

On my S2 SA Tivo, the first screen takes longer when "Tivo" is first
pressed. But paging through the program guide is about 3x faster.

I noticed this weekend also that changing channels (i.e. channel
surfing) is quite a bit faster on mine. It took me so long to notice
since I channel surf so rarely now. But the NCAA tournament has brought
back some old habits ;-).

YESSS.

That is why I am checking this NG today. I have noticed a slowdown
recently. I have only had my TiVo for a couple months but it has definitely
slowed down since the upgrade. I was looking to see if there is some way to
defrag the hard drive or something like that. I have also noticed that my
live TV appears to be skipping frames recently. I am looking for any info I
can find.

Very shoddy software being delivered by Tivo.

You'll have to wait a while for the Comcast developers to straighten
the Tivo programmers out.
