    That is odd behavior. Sounds like a reboot is in order, followed by a connection to the TiVo service.

    You joined TCF 5 years ago and this is your first post?

    What previous model TiVos have you had and what model do you currently have?


    What you've go going on sounds much too "designed" to be a bug or glitch.

    Not even boxes for upcoming shows or PPV? At least some of those are ads. (Like the discovery bar on Tivo -- but I'm not claiming they're necessarily ads on Tivo, though the stupid paper towel one of course is.)

    I haven't noticed. Nothing TiVo has done has prevented me from watching my content the way I've always done. If they ever interfere with that then I will have an issue. But everything has been unobtrusive so far.

    That sounds perfect. I would prefer for ads to be targeted to me for something I am interested in. If I have an interest in them, and I notice the ad, then I might look at them.

    I have looked at stuff on the TiVos over the years that has caught my eye. I have no problem with it. And I've received discounts or coupons because of it. Someone mentioned the Bounty coupon. Mine showed up recently. My GF uses Bounty so I will give it to her the next time I see her. A $1 off coupon is like having a dollar bill in your hand. And they do add up over time.

    I want to thank TiVo for introducing me to Charmin Tailgating Potties!
