TiVo HD update

Ben Drawbaugh

It's been just over a week since the launch of TiVo's HD DVR for the rest of us; and it hasn't been all peaches and cream. Initial shipments of pre-upgraded models from Weakness and the like were delayed because TiVo modified the MFS file system and it wasn't until recently that a crafty hacker released a new tool that supports the format. But that's not even the worst of it, as many early adopters with Scientific Atlantic CableCARDs were reporting pixelation problems on the second tuner. Well, TiVo was quick to respond and the TiVo HD got it's first software update yesterday which addresses the problem. So if you don't have it already, force a call and make sure you're running version 8.1.7b1-01-2-652.

Update: According to TiVo Lovers Blog, 8.1.7b1-01-2-652 just isn't doing all that much, especially for Scientific Atlanta CableCARD and S-Card users. Still having issues? Shout it out!
