Thanks for the detailed writeup, I'll have to check tonight and see if it's showed up on my Roamio Basic. These UI updates come via Internet right? No connection to TiVo needed?
Correct. I believe that it checks for and brings down available updates to the HTML5 code every time it starts up. When I started the player on my Roamio I got the selection of defined Profiles and when I'd selected on it showed me a once-only "Welcome to the new Netflix UI" screen (I'm sure it was worded differently).
I do believe that TiVo requires connection to the TiVo service to display the option to start Netflix. I rebooted my TiVo this morning (once again when it switched to after it being idle overnight it had lost its HDMI connection and had to be rebooted
). After I rebooted it couldn't contact TiVo service for a while and didn't give me the option of starting Netflix or any other online service.
