I go for recorded content. Either from my servers or my TiVos. The TiVos had no problem with recorded content with the internet connection down.

There was a time I recall that if the internet was down, I couldn't navigate the TiVo UI on my Premiere at all -- I couldn't even initiate playback of recorded content. The issue was discussed here.

I've a feeling it's been fixed by now. It'd have to be, otherwise TiVo would be an even bigger laughingstock.

yes, this is the most intrusive of anything. My mother actually thought her remote was breaking before I realized what was going on.

Yes I'm affected all the time by this. It used to be a quick succession of button presses to delete show after you are done watching. Now, half the time I go through the usual muscle memory sequence my button presses are ignored until the dialog becomes functional and responsive to button presses.

I should try and re-train myself to use following sequence to delete a show I just finished watching instead to avoid the above issue completely (and as a bonus skip the annoying commercial):
Pause, Left, Clear

Using Pause before Left prevents the "keep or delete" dialog from showing up at all.

Since above sequence uses Pause and I have SPSPS enabled I still get a brief instant of a Pause ad, so it's not perfect, but better.
