Post "Aquiring Tivo Service Information"?

I'm sitting here looking at my Dtivo, and it is tuned to channel 100 at 2 am in the morning pacific. It has a nice banner along the bottom of the screen telling me it is 9% done with 28 minutes left to go.

This seems much live the old 2 am download comercial stuff, but I have never seen anything like this. The channel is named TIVOR.

The little banner tells me to press select for more info. When I press it, it tells me:

"The reciever is currently recieving data to keep your Tivo service up to date. To watch a program..."

This is completely new to me.

Comments?

This is the new "downloading from the satellite" thing. It tunes to a special hidden channel (actually just transponder 1, but let's not quibble) and gets data from the satellite. Mainly Tivolution Magazine and Showcases.
