It looks like the long promised software update to the DirecTiVo boxes is finally here. Users are TiVoCommunity are reporting receiving 6.4a on their units. As announced last July, the update includes the Recently Deleted folder in the Now Playing List, Overlap Protection (clipping), and DirecTV’s Remote Booking – aka online scheduling. There are reported to be a number of cosmetic changes to the menus as well, making them resemble the current standalone boxes more closely.
Unfortunately, that seems to be it. While some were hoping the update would activate the USB ports and networking, that doesn’t seem to be the case. So the DirecTiVo units still lack many of the features of standalone TiVos.
