    This only works when there is an ad available when you hit pause.

    OK, after several tries I got it to work. You have to start with downarrow to get rid of the ad, or else the first select will go to an ad screen. I forget whether I had to add a right arrow as I used to in order to get rid of the progress bar during the sequence.

    I was able to get this to work on my XL4. When the TiVo is in SD screen (menu) it fills the entire screen, while in HD it fills the upper left hand corner.

    Now that I can see how far off my overscan is, is there an adjustment that I can make to the TiVo to fix it?

    No, the adjustment would have to be to the TV.

    Like my TV, which has the "feature" that overscan cannot be adjusted or turned off on HDMI inputs, but can on composite or component inputs. I wonder what genius decided HDMI should have overscan at all, let alone be non-adjustable. Next time I buy a flat-panel I'm paying more attention to things like that.

    Trouble is, it's really hard to determine these things until you've already got the beast home.

    Stuff like Picture-in-Picture bugged me on our plasma. It'll only do the PIP for composite or an NTSC RF channel. Nowhere is it documented that it won't do PIP with two hi-res sources.

    I recently rebooted one of my new S4 Premieres, and sometime after that it started with two lines of very tiny text on the left edge of the screen. I see "16:9" and "fps" in there, haven't looked too closely at the rest.

    I was trying SPSPS to get the play bar to go away quicker, and that was not working. But did I trigger some other code that did these two lines of text?

    I'm rebooting now and I imagine that will make it go away.

    There was a "tips and tricks" page on Tivo web site that is not there any more. It explained how to program the remote to turn off/on both DVR and TV at the same time and I have already done it for one of my remotes but I don't recall the process.

    I appreciate if somebody helped me with that.

    Is there a complete list of these codes to be accessed easily?

    This week I bought a Roamio after a great nine-year run with a couple of Series 2 boxes; really got my money's worth!
    Everything is wonderful except two frustrations:
    1) The loss of the numeric shortcuts 5 & 6 on the remote control for Find by Time & Find by Channel. Is there any other shortcut or backdoor way to get that functionality back? I use them several times a day, and it's a real pain to have to dig through menus to get at them each time. (Buttons 7, 8 & 9 apparently are currently unused.)
    2) Purely cosmetic, but I really miss the old TiVo GUI. Is there any backdoor way of getting it back?

    Would you settle for a front door way? In Settings -> Displays there is an option to change the TiVo menus. Select the SD menus. Then the TiVo will use the old GUI, including the shortcuts.

    Thanks for the reply, cwb3106!
    In my Roamio TCD846500, Settings > Displays only offers the following:
    – Closed Captioning
    – Lights on the Front of the DVR
    – Customize Discovery Bar
    – Video Window
    ...but nowhere in any of them do I see anything about changing the TiVo menus. And I'm not seeing anything in the other Settings menus, either. Am I missing something?

    No, I think cwb3106 is wrong. On the new Roamio, I don't believe the old TiVo GUI is an option at all, via any front or back door.

    The Roamios never had the SD option, and one of the last updates removed it from the Premiere line.

    Which one? I am up to date (I think?) with 20.3.8-01-2-746 on a lifetimed Premiere and the option to switch to SD menus still exists.

    You're correct. Just tried it, and that option still exists on my Elite. Seems odd the same OpVer (20.3.8) has a difference like this.

    I think what I may be remembering is when I first hooked the Mini up to it, it required me to switch to the HDUI. I don't know whether that is still true or not.

    I wonder whether the SD menus are really still in there with Roamio, and only a secret backdoor/key combination remains to be discovered.
