    Maybe a stupid quesiton, but I couldn't find the answer in the manual. How do you enter text with the remote? I can't sign into netflix because I can't figure out how to enter text.

    You have to hit "select" while on the blank space to bring up the keyboard. I agree it should come up automatically.

    Or use a USB keyboard, wireless ones are great with TiVos.

    Even with a USB keyboard or the TiVo app, you still have to press select to enter the text field.

    Goober96 is correct, it does not come up automatically.

    I wasn't trying to say you don't have to select the text field. I was just pointing out that text entry is much easier with a keyboard and not everyone knows that they work.
