That's the place holder they use for ads.
I don't mind them and if I don't like it I just hit the clear button.
These days, it's impossible to go anywhere without being bombarded with ads. Without even knowing it, you're being advertised to. With new technology comes news ways to advertise. In a world society built on currency, things are only going to get worse.
A rare, wise first posting. Welcome to TCF.
Hmm. I don't hear a "bong" sound. And I do not have sounds disabled.
If it bothers you, you could try programming the pause button with UP-PAUSE-DOWN. That would clear the ads after pausing, and unclear them before unpausing.
They will certainly get worse if nobody raises an objection. Blindly accepting them as a fact of life guarantees that they will be.
I never cease being astonished at the willingness of so many TiVo users to see this blight on the UI and say "Thank you sir, may I please have another?"
"Raising an objection" only has value and impact when Robert's Rules of Order applies. It doesn't apply to the mass-market. What matters in the mass-market is how lots and lots of people spend their money. The only significant voice is where people direct their purchases.
There is nothing blind about accepting facts of life. Again, if you don't like the facts, then spend your money differently. Whining about something isn't the same as making responsible purchasing decisions.
I've had the Verizon Fios TV service for a week. Love the quality, price and channels offered. HATE THE DVR!!
It only has a 160 GB drive. Cannot be expanded and cannot have an external drive attached. Worse, it miss calculates the amount of hard disk space. 5.5 hours shows as 84% full. Verizon admits this is a firmware problem and plan to fix it "sometime."
I just ordered a TIVO HD unit with a 1 GB external drive today.
Welcome to the fold. You'll probably be in heaven with the TiVo DVR. Even with the annoying pause ads, it's still not as annoying as most of the Cableco DVR's. Kind of puts things in perspective.
And if The Facts of Life are really that annoying... try Diff'rent Strokes... that Ms. Garrett really knew her way around TV.
Yeah, that really says a lot about a product -- it's annoying -- just not as annoying as the others......
Give it time - if TiVo has its way and keeps on increasing the ads little by little it will catch up soon enough.
I have two S3's, one with CableCARDS, one without. Both are running Software Version 11.0c-01-2-648.
One displays the Search option when paused, the other doesn't. One connects via broadband, the other by phone. Is the broadband connection the determining factor regarding the Search option display?
I temporarily set the S3 which connects by phone to broadband. Nothing changed. Must a time interval or download take place after a broadband connection is established to enable the Search option?
Really mature post. Grow up.
Talking to yourself?
ooh, and you got the last word currently.
I was keeping relatively quiet waiting for Roy to step in his own leavings... he typically does.
I'll take your word for it - he's on my ignore list. I've had all of his garbage I can stomach.
