    I like the Discovery bar too!:D

    I've found some content with it that I otherwise might have not run into.

    I find content through suggestion recordings. I don't think I have ever found a single useful thing about the Distraction Bar! Die Die Die!!!

    Margaret confirmed that the HD NPL for networked devices will only work with Premier devices. I am OK that it will not work with my S3's but rather disappointed that it will not work with my PYTiVo shares - I hope that the devs can figure out a way to trick it to work, but I realize that is just wishful thinking...

    It is interesting that none of the screen prints show the discovery bar... I wonder if they are really planning on killing it?

    Conflicts in the To Do list? That sounds like it will be AWFULLY cluttered.

    Don't get me wrong, it sounds like a nice experiment, but I'm not sure how much 'noise' it will add to the signal of usefulness of to do list stuff.

    If you look at the picture you will see

    C Show (will record & conflicts)

    I would guess like most of the menus it will have various options otherwise no reason to list the C setting.

    I think it just has its place and these screens don't need it.

    It makes sense on search, but not on Season Pass Manager. I could see it going either way on To Do list, but it just seems like it would eat too much of the space there. It definitely doesn't make sense on remote TiVo screens.

    Why no update to HD on any of the settings screens? I would think those would be the easiest to convert.

    You'd rather have the settings screen in HD than the To Do list or Season Pass screen? Personally I'd rather them not waste time on screens I never go to, or at least do them last.

    It's likely a matter of priority. They're the least used in general. What benefit they might have in ease is made up for in volume; there are a lot of them. And for whatever reason Tivo is moving at a glacial pace as it is updating the ones we get.

    HD menus with full art are available for your pytivo shares now. Head over to the home media section and look for vidmgr, an HME add on for pyTivo.

    I haven't used vidmgr, but I have used a number of other HME plugins in the past - they are never very clean, you have to go several menus deep to access them and it just isn't the same experience. I know a lot of effort goes into these tools, the fault lies with TiVo's wonky hme implementation.

    I will stick with the SD mode...

    I do think TiVo should consider making external video shares show in this new and improved format. In my opinion it is one of the biggest features TiVo has over its competition and it would bring value for them to expose it a little more openly.

    So TiVo... My wishlish is to allow streaming and HD menues from external video shares - treat the video share like another Premier Device.

    I wouldn't expect it unless they end up doing a new and improved TiVo Desktop. As much as we love it, I doubt it gets as much use. If it did I don't think TiVo Desktop would be as outdated as it is.

    I think they are going in order of which screens are used the most. The settings screens are accessed FAR less often than the todo list and season pass manager. Plus, they are only two screens- the settings are dozens of screens.
