Our biggest complaint with our DirecTiVo before it died: speed, or rather lack thereof. It's a common complaint.
TiVo software version 9.3 will significantly speed up nearly all of the common tasks that customers do with a TiVo. No longer will the DVR pause for nearly a minute while it reorders Season Pass priorities or stall for half a minute when a Season Pass is created. Users will see between 10 and 30 second speed improvements in these areas.
In addition, the interface will feel crisper, with TiVo Central (the default dashboard that pops up after you press the TiVo button on the remote) loading 1 second faster. Scrolling through the Now Playing list of recordings and changing the channel will also now be around 1 second faster.
Confirming a recording will be between 3 and 5 seconds faster in version 9.3 compared to 9.2.
The bad news: no new features. But hey, the old ones will work faster!
