TiVo Beginning Early Roll-Out Of Software Revision 9.3

Reports are surfacing on TiVoCommunity.com of a new 9.3 software revision which is starting to quietly appear on units in the field. And reader ‘mrmac14′ reported in a community comment that his Series2DT is now running 9.3.X.9-01-2-649. Early reports indicate the 9.3 updates brings progressive downloads to the S2 platform (the S3/HD got that in 9.2) as well as performance improvements with MRV transfers as well as with menu speed.

For those who are new to the process, when they’re getting close to a new release TiVo will first trickle it out to a handful of randomly selected boxes. Kind of putting a toe in the water to make sure everything is OK and no show stoppers were missed during beta testing. The next step is usually an early release, where they start a slow roll-out and put up a priority page for people who want it faster. And then, finally, the last step is full generally release where all the boxes are updated. So, barring TiVo finding an issue, it looks like 9.3 will be officially appearing on a TiVo near you soon.

Thanks to reader MickeS for calling my attention to this in a comment.
