    Is this menu item (Coming soon!) going to stay in my TiVo Central forever? (Philips series 1 standalone).

    It looks like it. Tivo seems to have forgotten about the series 1 owners. Though they did remember us long enough to put this crap ON our tivos, just not remove it.

    I have the same problem with a Sony Series 1 TiVo and it has been that way for 3 months or so. I think it was suppose to be for the special VIP transfer but they never gave us the info.

    Yeah..I posted about this a while back. Sure would be nice if we could get TivoPony or someone like that to read this and get it fixed at Tivo...as the only way I've heard to remove it is a "wipe out and start over" of your settings on the tivo.

    "A special TiVo party invite" was something for when tivo wanted people to host a Tivo party 9like a tupperware party) to help promote Tivo. It had nothing to do with the S3 or the VIP transfer offer.

    Whatever the case, will TiVo ever remove it from my TiVo Central?

    On my Philips Series 1.

    Clear and Delete EVERYTHING! (sorry to have to say that) :eek:

    I got rid of it just before the fall season. Wait until after the fall season is over and you've watched all of your recordings... then do the CADE.
    It will get rid of it. :up:

    Sorry, that's not an acceptable solution. Sure would be nice if Tivo would acknowledge this problem and actually fix it.

    it's been stuck on my Series 1 TiVo for a long time as well. I think it keeps TiVoShanan's new promo videos from appearing in TiVo Central. :(


    Good thing for backdoors. :)

    Folks, sorry about this.

    We're studying the issue.

    It has been removed from most Series1 boxes, but in other cases it is persisting, and we're trying to find out why.

    If you have this promotion stuck on your Series1 unit, can you please e-mail me (estephen@tivo.com) with your 15-digit TiVo Service Number?

    Thanks,
    S.

    P.S. Jeff, from my understanding, it shouldn't prevent any other promotion from appearing there in rotation.

    TiVo Party just disappeared from my Series 1 last night. Rats, it made me feel special, like I was invited to something for a change :).

    You beat me to it, pokegol. Yes, we fixed this issue last night. Apologies for the delay and the problem. It will not recur.

    Best regards,
    Stephen

    Hmm... I wonder why the Series 3 promo never showed up on TiVo Central. Were Series 1 owners supposed to get it?


    when I get home tonight, I double check to see if it's still there. if it is, I'll email you my service number.

    Thanks -- it just disappeared from my Philips HDR212 in the last couple days. I was tired of it...
