TiVo Software 9.3 Priority Page For Series2 Up – Come And Get It!

TiVo has started the official roll-out of software revision 9.3 for the Series2 – Series3 & TiVo HD units still have to wait a bit. If you want it first, then get over to the TiVo Software Priority Request page and sign up. Any units with TSNs starting with 110, 130, 140, 230, 240, 264, 275, 540, 542, 565, 590, 595, or 649 are eligible.

And why would you want this release? Well, TiVo emailed me a few benchmarks comparing 9.3 to the existing 9.1 release.
Live TV to TiVo Central – 1 second faster
Now Playing Scrolling – 1 second faster
Channel Change Up – 1 second faster
Confirm recording -> Confirm – 3-5 seconds faster
Create Season Pass – 5-10 seconds faster
Season Pass Manager Priority change – 30 seconds faster

Performance improvements are a big part of 9.3, as well as some new features such as Progressive Downloads, as previously reported.

    Progressive downloads are a nice positive surprise for the Series2 since I don´t think TiVo previously announced they would bring the feature to the Series2.
