    Most of my shows are set up as KUID and Keep at Most to All, with the exception of the news programs and Letterman. News programs are set at 2 for keep at most and 10 for Letterman. My understanding of KUID was if I had Keep at most to a set number, say Letterman, that once I reach that number if I had KUID set, that Letterman would stop recording after 10 shows were on the DVR.

    The only time I saw space reserved in advance using KUID was on the old Replay TV DVR.

    If what your saying is true than my Roamio Pro shouldn't record new shows at all. I have 30 SP, 24 are set at KUID, keep at most set to all. I have a few shows going back a few years (transferred from my other Tivos) and at most I've been up to 30% full, as I do try and delete shows that I know will never watch at the end of a television season.

    Space is reserved on the TiVo for KUID recordings. But only for episodes currently in the guide (i.e. about two weeks out). So the issue of prematurely running out of space due to KUID is overstated above.

    Yes, this is true for the most part.

    Just wait for when they decide to run a ''marathon'' of shows you have a KUID season pass (or ARWL) for, and the guide data doesn't distinguish between new and repeat.

    That link doesn't work but I found settings at https://tivo.com/tivo-tco/1clickoptions.do

    However, this only applies to recordings scheduled from the web site, when you select programs to record or season passes from TiVo.com

    I would love to have a way to default to KUID for new season passes I create from my TiVo's guide or search results, just as you can on the web site. TiVo obviously sees some value in having that as a feature or they wouldn't have added it to their site, so hopefully it makes its way to the UI of the DVR itself.

    I was just about to ask about this exact thing as I would like my season passes to have different defaults than what is set within the Tivo. I am assuming this can't be done on a permanent basis.

    I have 28 SPs and ALL are set KUID. Never have a problem with space (never more than 35% full)...but I never keep more than five eps of any hour-long program and no more than 10 of any half-hour program. Sports programs I delete immediately after watching. I stay pretty current...

    I have around 130 Season Passes. If I only had a fifth of that then there would not be an issue with a 3TB drive. But with a much smaller drive it would be an issue.

    Really? I KUID basically everything. I also manage the space available, although with the XL4, the Olympics are the only thing even close to filling the thing up. It's like a bottomless pit!

    What I want to know is... is there a way to HIDE the timeline while paused? I've been using TiVo since 2004, and I've never found a way.

    Use the Select-Play-Select backdoor:
    S-P-S-Pause-S - Toggles the fast disappear of the Play bar. Also makes the pause ads disappear. You will never complain about ads again (they do show up on delete screens still - but those go away when you delete).

    Many folks use a programmable remote and make the pause button issue a pause and clear command to do this.

    Thanks. Didn't think of that. Makes sense.

    I use the TiVo remote. The bar is usually nice, but on occasion, I want to see a score or some other graphics up on the screen while it's paused...

    While paused, pressing fast forward (frame advance) also clears the bar. On my remote, this is more convenient for me.
