    Quit saying that and trivializing other people's issues. Perhaps YOU don't pause very often, trying to look at things on the screen. Perhaps YOU don't find it that annoying. Perhaps YOU don't think it blocks too much of the screen. But others might, and their concerns are perfectly valid.

    JUST BECAUSE IT IS NOT A BIG DEAL TO YOU DOESN'T MAKE IT NOT A BIG DEAL FOR OTHERS.

    The solution is to use the SPSP code.

    So use the code and be done with it. Still not a big deal.

    I agree with you.

    Unfortunately, some people don't respect that others can be bothered by things that don't bother them. It's a selfish attitude. Kind of sad that people can be so self absorbed.

    I don't think it'll ever get to the point of full screen or ads during pause - because by that time everything will be IPTV on demand and we won't need Tivos anymore.

    For whatever reason, the pause pop-up ads on playback on my two new Roamios have all gone away.

    Expect that to be temporary...

    A reminder that those discontent with the ad size and locations should sign up for the Tivo Advisors panel. There are surveys sent out that address these exact topics and allow Tivo to collect and aggregate the data better than on TCF.

    Has anyone else noticed that they're implementing the pop up "thumbs up" ad in the upper right hand corner of your screen when one of their partner's commercials come on, like they used to? I saw it the other night with Bounty paper towels.

    I've been seeing the Charmin one ever since they started that campaign. Haven't see the Bounty one yet, or any others for that matter.

    Too bad the networks don't buy into this. I miss seeing the "press thumbs up to record" during an ad for a show.

    They have been showing one for "Almost Human" in my market now for a while where they want you to press thumbs up to record. I bet even if you press thumbs up it continues to spam you with the ad at every opportunity.

    Yes. But they have been doing that for years.

    Because ads are not going away. Sometimes they disappear for a while, especially when promotions are changing. Other factors seem to affect it to, although we don't know what they are.

    The only thing for sure is that they always come back.

    Yes. This is the only TiVo ad that I don't mind at all.

    Unfortunately, you are probably correct... ;)

    I know I just haven't seen it for a LONG time. I thought maybe they discontinued that form of ads.

    I just saw it last week (commercial thumbs ads). Although I admit it had been a loooong time since I had seen it prior.

    For some reason I keep having to redo the Select Play Select Pause Select (Easter Egg) to get rid of the ads. I'll do the spsps and then the next day the ads are back.
    Anyone else having this issue ? I hate the damn pause ads !

    I know that if the TiVo reboots you have to re-enter the code. (Some SPS codes persist across reboots, such as the one for old-style 30-second skip, but others like this one get reset when you reboot.)

    The ads don't bother me so I never use this code. But from what I understand a reboot is the only thing that should be resetting it.
