    downloaded it. turned on the football game, didnt really notice much of a picture quality difference unfortunately.

    also, the directions say to press SQ then options in order to see your current numerical connection speed (in the lower left corner). When i do this, all i see is 3 dots down there.

    anyone noticing anything significantly different from the old version?

    Mine shows the number. Also when it's on HQ it does look better.

    Seems to work better although ive noticed this

    Audio doesn't seem to work in wifi HQ

    And for some reason I think SQ looked better on 3G than HQ does.

    Still both are better than before though.

    Ah, i guess it only shows the connection speed on SQ, not HQ. strange.

    i have slingplayer on the iPad and the video quality is much better in my opinion. i wish this new update brought better video. maybe regular tv will look better than football, which has a ton of movement.

    for reference, im using the pro-hd with the latest firmware.

    edit: just watched some non sports programming. picture was pretty sharp. didnt notice much of a difference between hq and sq though. the picture is kind of dark for some reason (my phone's brightness is usually around 40%. boosting it to 100% made the picture nice and bright, but prob kills the battery).

    I'm not so impressed with the update
    -no more "audio only" option
    -the autodetect screen size only works on startup, switching between STD, and HD broadcast sticks with whatever the app starts standard or letterbox. This used to happen on my solo a couple years ago in both Mac and windows clients.

    I hope they at least fix the auto detect. I'm on a 3GS with a slingbox solo that's totally up to the most current firmware.

    also a bit underwhelmed myself.

    does anyone know what the 'new guide' feature is? the guide looks the same to me...???

    On mine, whenever I switch between SQ and HQ, it always sends the TiVo back to the "Now Playing" screen. What's up with that?
