TiVo Opens Beta Test for Update
TiVo is preparing to beta test a Fall software update and is opening the program to any Series2 customer. TiVo users can submit their service number into a pool, which will be drawn from randomly. The update will be delivered to units automatically.
Although TiVo isn't saying what's new in the release, blogger Dave Zatz said he expects "the slowdown issue seen on certain units (including mine) will be addressed. Secondly, the whispers tell me WPA is coming to the TiVo-branded wireless adapter. Last but not least, I fully expect to see better organization in the Music, Photos, & Spam area — including a dedicated TiVoCast menu."
