You can make the progress bar appear by pressing the play button while the video is playing. I know that sounds counter-intuitive, but that will bring up the progress bar for ~3 seconds.

That is sad, I do that all the time and didn't even think about it. Maybe it is, indeed, time to add that trick code thing.

I can never get these codes to work. I am sure I am not doing something correctly - I have tried from a recorded show and from live tv - but it just doesn't seem to do anything.

That use to be an option, with an actual screen to set it, back in the S1/S2 days. But when they came up with the brilliant idea to put adds up when you paused they removed it.

The SPSPS code is one of the trickiest codes to enter for some reason (probably because it has to do with avoiding the pause ad ).

Go into Showcases and play one of the videos that are in there. This is usually the most sure way to get the codes to stick.
If you have the Tivo sounds enabled, you should hear three dings when the code is accepted.

Really? I did not know that. That must be why TiVo programmed the backdoor pause code in the first place, to give users an option when they change the functionality of the UI. They did the same thing when they changed how the FF button works and gave us SPS88S.

If it is any consolation, I had to do it three times before it started working. I did it while watching a recording.

Seemed to be mostly about Apps and specifically asked about Amazon original series which are exclusively available via Prime streaming. Maybe an Amazon streaming app is coming.

How did everyone answer the first question?

I commented on being able to change the length of the Live TV buffer (couldn't really think of anything else ).

I told them I wanted them to fix tivo.com so it worked better for finding & subbing to pod casts along with auto backing up our settings to tivo servers for when we switch DVRs or replaced hard drives.

Finally got survey. Tough decision. My top three are custom directories, Android streaming, and settings backup. I chose:

Allow the user to create custom, nested folders such that recordings can be directed to or moved to/between specific places. This will create a much more organized system where the user can store things in a way that makes sense when there are many dozens or hundreds of recordings. Part of directory control also means allowing the user to delete the useless/obsolete "HD recordings" directory.

There are still serious flaws in their survey response logic. Take this for example:

Hulu plus-

* Have used this feature, and would use it again

* Have tried this feature, but would not use it again

* Have never tried this feature, but am aware of it

* Not aware of this feature

What do you select if you are aware of the feature, have not used it *on TiVo* and don't plan to because you don't like it? No selection fits that. Choosing "Have never tried this feature, but am aware of it" is closest, but indicates I don't have or can't have any opinion about it, which is wrong.

Same thing with movies, there is no selection when you don't want to see it in theaters but do plan on watching it on TV vs. you don't want to see it in theaters and have no intention of ever watching it. Maybe they don't care what happens if not watched in a theater? Odd.

Would love the ability to turn off the apps from displaying on my Mini and Roamio -- never plan to use them.

Would also like the ability to attach an external hard drive and use it to back up recorded shows instead of expanding space. When my Premiere bit the dust, we lost quite a few shows we hadn't watched (and also lost movies we purchased through Amazon).

You mean in "Now playing"? You can do that now...

That is probably not going to ever happen because of DRM or low demand. Most programs can be re-recorded and TiVo isn't positioning their product as a permanent video repository. I don't think it is a bad idea, just extremely unlikely to be ever considered. TiVo doesn't even provide a way to backup your settings and ratings and never has, and those are more important because they represent a significant time investment and are EASY to backup and SMALL and can be stored anywhere and without DRM or complex issues (except the ability to re-import).

Movies "purchased" (I use that term loosely) through Amazon can be re-downloaded.

Yeah, this bugs me a little. It is very rare that I want to see a movie bad enough that I will go to the theater.
Depending on the movie and if I have any interest in it at all, I will answer "probably will go see it" even though I don't really plan to, because I *will be* seeing it on DVD/Blu-ray at some point.
If that screws up TiVo's intention, so be it. They should write better surveys.

I asked for the return of closed captions at the first FF speed. Had I seen this thread first, I may have gone with the longer buffer (steve614). I think that has a better chance of happening than mine, and I should have thought of that.

Well, it really can't be "in addition to" because they specifically asked for a single, most important/wanted change. Some people have a higher priority than custom folders or profiles (although I can't fathom why ).

Also, as discussed in other threads, custom folders and profiles really are two separate features. There is SOME overlap in functionality and some similarities, although custom folders are far more flexible (but also more complex). I suppose asking for "one and/or the other" would still kinda fit as a single wanted change, though. But I don't want people to start thinking they are the same or interchangeable. For example, in my case, as a single user, I would have little use for "profiles", but custom folders would be exceptionally helpful.

Agreed on "folders" vs "profiles." Much better to have folders. But in this survey everyone can mention the one thing that is most important to them, and ALSO put wanting folders in the text section of what changes to the Roamio would make them more satisfied. They don't have to choose one or the other.

There is hope. I'm glad we had the chance to let them know AGAIN about the need for Amazon Prime.
