Sometimes I jump the gun a little too fast
While we are at it, has anyone noted it would be good to have the status bar change to LIVE or something like that when you actually catch up with the program that you are recording and watching at the same time? Would save me a bunch of skip forward key presses to make sure I am actually at the end of the recording and now watching live.
Pretty sure the poster was just confused and was actually watching the end of a show which was started as a live recording buffer. When you reach the end of those it can look very similar but does not offer Delete unless it was literally launched from My Shows.
Actually, what I was watching was started from My Shows... it like I said before might be a litteral timing thing where it has to happen within a certain timeframe and maybe I did it a second too soon or something.
Or maybe, as in my case, your TiVo was "messin' wit ya" (That's my story and I'm sticking to it ).
1. When you get to the end of the show, pause it. Then hit the left arrow. It will not ask you to keep/delete.
2. Or just left arrow when at the end of the show. It will now ask you to keep/delete.
In what way is this relevant?
In another thread I was reminded that the "green circle of death" was replaced with the "blue petals of death". Does anyone know if this was new to 20.2 or did that appear in 14.9???
New to 20.2. Was not part of 14.9
All they would have to do is put one of the verticle, white hash marks at the beginning and the end.
Well, to make matters worse, in another thread someone said they still seen the green circle too. That is something I have NOT encountered in the 20.2 update.
Probably another case of someone not saying what UI they are using.
if that was me, i'm currently still trying the hd menus and i was in them last night when i was running some intensive kmttg task such as spm re-order or new show finder and while that was running i ran some other task on the elite directly and got a spinning circle (unsure if it was blue, blue-green, or green) for nearly 3 minutes. i promised to try to re-create those conditions so i could report for sure what it looked like, but i'm updating my os and haven't had the opportunity. i've noticed them several times since i installed kmttg over the last week although up until last night it's only been for a few seconds at most.
if you have kmttg installed and want to try to recreate it, you might start a re-order of your spm, then, with a live hd channel playing in the thumbnail start a todo list or something intensive. i wouldn't recommend doing another spm re-order though!
HDUI progress bar (when playing something other than the live buffer):
In addition to being below the bar, the format of the time counter is different. Rather than being h:mm it is "n min" if less than an hour, "n hr" if exactly a multiple of an hour and "nh nm" otherwise. The total recording time at the end of the progress bar is also in the new format. Examples:
I've only had my Premier a week, and think I read thru all of this stuff, but two new negative things that I have noted:
1) When I record a sporting event I pad the time and then watch it in the Live buffer. When the game ends I use the Info button to stop the recording and then go back to My Shows to delete it. When I press Clear I get the "x" next to the recording but it just hangs there doing nothing more. If I back out to another area and come back the show is still there (X is gone). If I Select the item and then select Delete it, I get the check mark but again it just hangs there. If I back out and come back and press Play I get an error message about recording errors. If I just wait 15-20 minutes it deletes just fine.
2) I have programmed the TiVo for 30-second skip. If I hit the advance button 3-4 times quickly the first image is frozen until the skips are all done. It used to provide a new frame for each of the skips. This makes it harder to quickly move thru 3-4 minutes of commercials. Also the IR key works the same way. Hit it 3-4 times and the one frame freezes until the system catches up instead of providing a new frame for each 8 seconds.
BTW, there seems to be one bug fix that only affects a few users. I have had a S3 and a HDXL connected to my Yamaha Receiver for four years. I always selected Video Output on the TiVo to be 1080i. However, any time I turned off the AVR that was always reset on the TiVo to 720p. I have noted at least 5-6 other users of Yamaha AVR with the same problem.
Now with the Premier when I set it to 1080i it stays that way without problems.
Actually, I am having lots of problems with trying to delete various types of programs. Several times now, I have tried to delete programs a dozen times without success and then having to PLAY the video, get an error that it could not be recorded due to a channel problem, get kicked out, then PLAY it again, which it then does without error, THEN I can delete it. It is very odd.
Your experience is remarkably similar to mine. It happened to me twice before, and it just happened to me AGAIN TONIGHT. I am adding it to the list, now.
Just had a spontaneous reboot. Had recorded the last half of an episode of "The Twilight Zone" on MeTV, selected "Explore this show". It initially just began ignoring remote commands when I reached "Episodes" but eventually started responding again. The second time I tried , it again wouldn't get past "Episodes" and then after about a minute, rebooted.
Sounds reasonable to me, I got 78Mb/s over wired ethernet (100Mb).
FWIW, I am also seeing this behavior. And I agree, it has a negative effect on usability. I wondered why I was going way past where I wanted to be more often than I used to.
