Apologies for the delay in responding. I was out of the office last week on vaction and just returned today.
In regards to 720p delivery, some of your HD channels have transitioned from 1080i to 720p60. As part of our ongoing work to improve and modernize the way we deliver HD channels, we are transitioning all of our HD streams to “progressive” format. We are making this change in conjunction with the transition to MPEG-4. This means that some channels that were delivered in 1080i will now be delivered in 720p60.
The progressive format offers a number of advantages, and is an important component of the transition to IP video delivery.
In addition, the transition to progressive format allows us to offer a uniform HD experience across all devices, apps and screens, ensuring a consistently excellent experience.
The interlaced format reduces the effective resolution of 1080i significantly. Most video delivery is moving toward progressive formats. Many leading HD channels already deliver video in 720p60, and the progressive format renders motion more effectively.
Based on extensive testing and research, we’re confident the combination of MPEG-4 encoding and the progressive format will allow us to deliver superior video performance to our customers.
Wow, really? All the "advantages" and "benefits" here are for Comcast versus the consumer. This will not improve the quality of video on our existing TV's and only continues Comcast's trend in reducing that quality.

HBO Go was just released for TiVo's today but Comcast/Xfinity is not on the list of providers (one of the few major cable companies not present in fact).
"If your TV provider is not listed, access to HBO GO on Tivo® is not offered as part of your HBO subscription. Contact your TV provider and ask for HBO GO on Tivo®."
I believe it took quite some time before access to HBO Go was supported through Roku devices and I'm hoping that won't be the case with TiVo's.
Any help or information you can provide is appreciated.

Jordan, Does this mean we can access an existing mailbox with POP3 and IMAP? We'd like to keep my wife's PC configuration with POP3 as it is but still allow access from her phone or tablet via IMAP (and we've configured it so mails aren't deleted immediately when downloaded to the PC).
