    sorry- not new. I have used that since I got my Premiere well over a year ago. I don't think this does anything when in the new guide, however.

    I can make those changes on my TV. Just hitting up button and going through different resolutions until I hit 1080i.

    things i've observed so far:

    setting the clock (sps9s) results in it being displayed center in the hd menus. this was causing very bad screen drawing, re-drawing, and data population problems on my box. toggling off the clock solved the problem completely.

    the hd menus are very much more responsive and fast enough that i could for the very first time bear to use them on a daily basis. except ... there are way too many jarring re-draw changes when you transition from one mode or screen to another. i don't see how audio and video dropouts and resolution changes can be acceptable in any situation whatsoever although, given a trade-off between speed and an assault on my eyes, i'd have to give the edge to the speed as they were completely unusable before this os release and now they merely induce headache if i spend more than 15 minutes in the menus.

    and a question on function: with the tivo live guide up--channels on the left and times/shows on the right--i see a future recording with two check marks in the right frame that i want to cancel. before i would just select it and hit the 'clear' button. now here's what i have to do:

    select show by hitting the select button
    cursor down to 'season pass & other options'
    <endure a jarring, 3 second transition to another screen>
    cursor over and down to 'modify next recording'
    cursor over and select 'cancel next recording'
    confirm that i do indeed want to cancel the recording
    <endure another jarring video transition going back to guide>

    now i realize i can get out of the guide completely and go into the todo list where my 'clear' command works as it used to. but the procedure above completely removes most of the benefit of having upcoming recordings flagged in the guide and you just cannot imagine how bitterly i've complained about this being missing over the last 6 years. sure hope i'm missing a quicker way here.

    Removed, since it was never verified either.

    I don't want to sound dense, but I am not sure I understand your description....

    Note added to existing entry.

    Did you mean HDUI or SDUI? I don't see any difference in the SDUI performance. And it has always been fast enought for regular use...

    Interesting find. Can someone verify this HDUI behavior change? For now I will just add it.

    I never had any idea so many people wanted a stupid clock on their screen. I don't even want a NBC or CBS logo or whatever on my screen. Why would you want more crap on the screen than they already force down your throat? I have a $4 clock sitting next to the TiVo.

    LOL!
    I have to admit, I am perplexed by the demand also. I *hate* anything on my screen while trying to watch TV, just like you. Besides, I have a wall clock just a few feet away. But, to each, his own!

    for me, it's not so much the clock as the time-counter which tells you where you are in the show. i know you can simply hit 'play' to bring up the bottom status bar but most of my tv is a background activity and i like it to be as hands-off as possible.

    right at the moment i'm testing out the hd menus and have had to remove the clock and i keep looking up at 'hell on wheels' recording playing wondering how far from the end it is. perhaps if it were a better show i wouldn't look so often! [g]

    Here is an odd behavior, is anyone else seeing this:

    In both the Live Guide and Grid Guide and Mini-Guide, The Current Days listings DO NOT have any NEW tags. I noticed this yesterday and today it is still doing it.

    But if I move to tomorrow or a future date in the Guide the NEW tags are shown.

    We removed two items from "Browse TV & Movies" -- but it doesn't look like anyone noticed! (I guess we made the right call?)

    I can verify it with a couple of twists.

    If the season pass recording is the next episode set to air, regardless of channel, it's as he states.

    If there are are other episodes airing before it, reruns on a different channel, "Modify next recording" isn't there at all. Instead, you get "Record next episode". There is no way to cancel the recording without going to the To Do List. There is, however, a new option(to me at least) under "Season Pass options" to "Get another Season Pass". This lets you set up a Season Pass for the show on a different channel than the one you already have it on.

    If someone wants to test the above, pick a show you have a Season Pass for but isn't yet in reruns and then a show you have a Season Pass for but know is also airing in reruns on a different channel prior to the recording you're selecting. My choices were "Parks and Recreation" and "30 Rock"

    I wouldn't notice if the whole feature was removed. I never used it. If I'm looking for something to watch, I look at my shows and the guide. If I find nothing there, I look at hulu. If I'm looking for something in particular, use search. If I find nothing there I read my kindle. :) (I would check amazon, but amazon prime isn't supported, so...)

    20.2 apparently does not prompt you when the Tuning Adapter goes Offline. You have to look at the Diagnostic to see that the TA is Disconnected. (My TA is hidden behind the AV cabinet so I cannot see the light)

    I have had a few TA issues since 20.2 (none before)

    Hmm I am now curious though and will have to glance at it tonight. I am the same way though. With so much recorded content at hand, I can't keep up as it is so I rarely go into that section.

    Can anyone add more detail to this update? Does it mean that weak signal channels that were previously not locked in, will now be locked in - however, if the signal is weak won't it be pixelated? And therefore what is the point. :thumbsdown:
    Or are they also doing a better job with these weak signals, and making them watchable? :up::up:

    I'd say so. Only time I go there is when TiVo does those Fall TV collections, so I can see what's new.

    A bug on MRV just came to light as I just got MRS last night, when watching a program from another TP using MRS at the end of the program you get the menu option delete or keep the program, if you select the delete, the TP will say you have deleted the program but it not true as the program is still on the other TP. You can delete it at that point by hitting the clear button or select the program and the menu gives you the delete option. You get the same option when watching a program on your TP itself (not using the MRS) that menu item at the end works as before.
