    Never used an s3. Are you saying you could click thru the contents of a folder without actually opening the folder?

    Also, now the ch +/- is used to page the whole now playing list, so did they have a different button for that on the s3?

    The context I usually used it was as follows. Let's say in My Shows you have a show highlighted and then press "Select" to see all details of a show. In SDUI you could then press channel down to immediately jump to show details of the next show down in the list with 1 button press. With HDUI you have to back out of show details (Left arrow), scroll down to next entry (Down arrow) and then press Select.
    Where I found this particularly useful was for non-auto record Wishlists when you use "upcoming" menu to view a large list of upcoming matches from which you want to choose a few to record. Very often you need to see detailed show info to decide whether to record or not. With SDUI I could just use channel up/down to quickly go through show details in the list. It's a lot more tedious and with 3x button presses now using HDUI.
    There are other examples of such lists where this is useful as well, such as viewing ToDo list or History lists, etc.

    Huh. I don't think I was ever prompted to press remote buttons for any type of identification purposes. Does that happen if you try to set up a device without entering a model or something?

    And agreed the harmony software isn't very well designed. I remember my Prontos fondly but gawd were they slow!

    Every time I set up a new device for my Harmony it asks me what it is then it has me press a few buttons on the original remote to verify. Like power, select, a number and something else. I think you can skip that step, but I always do it for TiVo because I know it needs this part to learn the remote code.

    Wow I never noticed that. Maybe I'll set up a new TiVo (before I delete the current one) to see if it prompts me this way. Thanks.

    Ohhhhh! Zoom works on the TiVo Netflix App as a back button! I knew there had to be a way. Thanks for the thread OP. :)
