    Eeeew. I was trusting this from some other posting. Can a second person confirm that this was never possible or exactly what changed, if anything???

    If you type in a channel number with the guide up, it will stop after 4 digits (or however many yours is set to use). Previously it would "loop back" to the beginning of the channel number.

    For example, let's say I want to go to channel 503 and I accidentally hit 5033. Previously I could just type "0503" and it would overwrite the channel, because the cursor skipped back to the beginning of the channel number. Now it just stops after 4 digits, so you're stuck going to 5033 before you can correct the mistake.

    Not sure if this will help and the quality isn't that great







    When I select "Parks and Recreation" ---> "Season Pass & other options", there is an option to "Modify next recording" ---> "Cancel next recording". This would cancel the recording I selected because it is the next recording. There are no other episode airing on any channels between now and then. When I select "30 Rock" ---> "Season Pass & other options", the option is now "Record next episode". This is because between now and the time of the recording I'm selecting, 30 Rock is airing in reruns on various channels. The only way to delete the 30 Rock recording is to go to "Upcoming" and scroll down until I get to the episode and delete from there. Because it's a week away, there are many episodes to scroll past before I come to the one I'm trying to delete.

    Most of us got it by emailing margret @ Tivo.com and providing TIVO UNIT number, you can find it at tivo.com when you log into your account.

    But I am not sure if she is still accepting individual requests.

    This update should be rolling out to customers over next few weeks.

    This is apparently HDUI.

    You said that was not the behavior before in the guide. But was it not the behavior before in live TV also? Because it doesn't wrap in live TV either...

    I may have a new one I haven't seen anyone else comment on yet, since this is an action I regularly perform the response was not as expected.
    SDUI
    Watching a live show buffered with about 20 minutes delay, I pull up the guide, ask it to record a show in the guide, adjust the stop time and SP settings, when done it drops me to the guide at the END of the buffer, i.e. Live, having forgotten where I was in the buffer before setting up the recording.

    The only complaints I have about the HDUI (and I realize they existed prior to this update, but I always used SDUI previously) are:

    The inability to completely remove the Discovery Bar (aside from the fact it takes some time to load, I don't like jumping to the Bar when I'm scrolling to the top of the list in My Shows)

    and

    The inability to remove You Tube from My Shows.

    It's my feeling that I not only paid for the hardware, but I'm paying for the service. As long as that's the case, I feel that I should have some control over what appears on the screen.

    Although I do have other complaints about the HDUI, including some of the latest changes with 20.2, which I think have been captured by others in this thread.

    In 20.2 you can remove YouTube from My Shows. There is a setting for YouTube in the Video Providers list. Uncheck it and it's gone.

    This is not new to 20.2 and doing this is really disabling these providers, which is not what I want to do. When you uncheck items on the “My Video Providers” list, they are removed as a search source and all menu references are removed, including entries on the “Find TV, Movies, & Videos” list where I would expect all enabled providers/sources to be listed. I simply want to remove the few duplicates that appear in My Shows, allowing me to maintain the My Shows exclusively for locally saved materials. By few duplicates I mean that only Hulu Plus, Netflix, and YouTube appear in My Shows while the complete list of providers adds Amazon Instant Video and BLOCKBUSTER. So the TiVo isn’t even consistent in its duplication of video providers between “Find TV, Movies, & Videos” and “My Shows”. I reported this to TiVo a long time ago. On the scale of issues I consider it fairly minor, but it is a UI design element that makes me question the design sensibilities of the folks at TiVo. Aside from being just another screw up, I am wondering if there is a program where certain providers can pay TiVo to make their service more visible/prominent in the UI.

    According to a tweet from Margret, filters in the guide will come back, but no eta.

    http://twitter.com/#!/tivodesign/status/158071012087443456


    I did come across something odd in the SDUI. I was browsing suggestions on my one TiVo and some of the shows recommended were on channels I don't get. I then went into channels and removed the channels. Then when I went back into suggestions at the bottom of the list, it was freaking out. I don't know how to describe it really. On the last page the top three items kept blinking and moving like the list kept trying to rebuild itself. It was only on the last page though. Skip also wouldn't jump to the top.

    Maybe I am the only one who feels this way but:

    I do not agree with categorizing the new coloring of the SDUI screens (all blue) as positive. What was once an interesting, colorful and useful set of screens has now been reduced to one boring set of blue screens. It's not only boring, but you don't know as readily what menu you are in.

    I am not saying we need the dancing Tivo guy back, or even the background animation. But please bring back the varying colors. Yes I know it "matches" HDUI screens now...but for those of us who still find the HDUI unacceptable (my wife prefers the larger font of SDUI for show titles and doesn't need any of the other bells and whistles) turning the SDUI into a "sea of blue" is NOT a positive change.

    If others chime in and disagree with me, fine. But I think you jumped the gun on characterizing this particular change as positive.

    BTW crxssi, I really appreciate you pulling together all of this info - well done!

    One man's boring is another man's consistency. To me, colorful stuff looked too amateurish (almost childish), and jarring, it looks much better now.

    Yeah, it is not necessarily a positive thing- or it depends on your point of view. For an SDUI user, it is less positive than an HDUI user (since many of the menus are the same). Personally, I find it better even in the SDUI, since it is less distracting (since less things change, and of course, no more animation). At the moment, I don't have a "neutral" level, since it would be even more complex. I am curious, of course, what others think about it, too...

    Thanks

    I think I saw this mentioned in a thread somewhere. The ability to switch audio stream (SAP) via the info button now actually works! I think this is the first time owning a TiVo where I got this to work. For example I was watching an NBA game and was able to use the Info menu to select alternate audio track which was in Spanish in this case. I had tried same thing before with my Premieres and S3 OLED and never got it to work prior to 20.2 software.
