    Maybe we're not using the same terms. What I've seen used elsewhere:
    Small - The program info banner that comes up when you first enter a program or change the channel.
    Medium - The half-screen overlay that comes up if you press Info. (As opposed to the half-screen Guide that comes up with Select.)
    Full - The full screen guide that comes up when you press Guide.

    If I press Guide and bring up the full screen Guide, then press Guide again I get the small banner briefly - not the Medium banner. Same if I press Clear.

    I'm fine with that, I haven't even really noticed it until I saw it pointed out here.

    If you did mean the Medium (half-screen) banner, can you post detailed steps to repro? I'm using a TiVo Premiere Elite.

    You're right it's the "small" banner. But pressing "clear" IMO should never result in an overlay appearing. The whole point of clear is to clear any overlays so to me it's a bug. The SDUI guide behaves as expected still.

    I don't have the update yet but how are people going about "clearing" the guide now in the HDUI?

    You mean getting it off the screen? I just hit Guide again, or Clear.

    Yes that's what I mean. I thought hitting Guide or Clear just brought up a different mini-guide. Or do you mean to hit it twice?

    I noticed a bug last night. Had two programs recording and while in the guide i could not change channels... meaning, normally you can pick a program in the guide and Tivo will warn you that you have to cancel a recording.. it did it once, i didnt allow it to change, but then later on tried another show and "select" did nothing.. did not bring up the warning nor change to the channel i wanted.

    I had to go to my shows.. cancel the recording manually, then i was able to change the channel.

    What if you clear the guide and enter the channel number?

    I don't have the update yet, either, but it looks like one feature you missed on the changelog is the ability to sort channels in the guide by name.

    That's new, right?

    How are people liking that feature? Seems cool, especially for spouses or guests who don't/won't memorize channel numbers.

    I surprised no one has mentioned this change, but the pause ads are now gone!

    I have a problem with this one

    3.2.9 Performance improvements still do not lead to a completely fluid user interface, mostly due to the delayed, live, internet-based loading of certain information, such as the discovery bar, and program graphics. Some screens take up to 6 seconds to finish drawing/updating everything.

    I still think people are trying to compare this UI to an old text based interface that will never compare in terms of speed. I have had nothing take up to 6 sec on any screen.. even back on 14.9.2

    Is the HDUI as close in speed to the POS interface my cable company provides, No that was lighting quick. But is was completely basic, ugly as hell and screwed up

    I wondered about that this morning. I couldn't recall seeing them at all yesterday, but am away from my TiVo's right now so I couldn't verify.

    I believe that the "New" mentioned in 3.1.7 was there in 14.9.2 - I noticed it there yesterday.

    If correct, that's huge! I'm Very tired of having to dismiss the obnoxious exhortations to watch "Morning Joe". These annoying forced interstitials alone are enough to keep me from ever taking a look at the show.

    I have seen these a few times, mostly saying "Shouldn't you be watching Morning Joe". They look a little different now with the new HD look, but they are still there, unfortunately.

    Whichever adman that decided that annoying the customers with the "Morning Joe" ads was a good idea should be fired!

    I thought this feature was new but maybe not. Now when I hit the info button and I see what is on the other three tuners on the Elite, I can select the tuner I want instead of cycling through the tuners.
    Was this a feature before? I don't remember ever being able to select a specific tuner.

    I know with the two tuners models you were always able to go to the other tuner.

    Seems to me we are praising stuff that should have been in the original UI. The fact that the Netflix and Amazon "apps" haven't been touched is pretty embarrassing. My Roku just got a new Amazon VOD app and it is great. My Blur-ray player has a better Netflix app. Tivo should be miles ahead of a company like Roku.

    I love the Tivo...especially since I'm a chord cutter. I just find myself using my AppleTV to do Netflix which I really shouldn't have to do.

    Any thoughts on the ability to sort guide channels alphabetically? Has anyone tested?

    New feature, right?
