Sure it's off topic (even off forum) as it belongs here...
Ads now blocking content
Off topic for the sub-forum, not off-topic in the thread
Son, I was posting Tb worth of Tivo images for series 1 & 2, Directv, hughes, etc. before you were a gleam in your mama's eye so let's keep it cordial.
Just logged in from a third computer, and those terrible bottom pop-ups are showing on this forum again (and since this is a little netbook with a very small screen, they are a HUGE problem now).
Bottom pop-ups? Like with titantv.com? Someone found a new way to piss us off. Is this a great country or what?
In all fairness, 108 likes for 185 posts is an impressive like-to-post ratio.
By that measure, I don't think anyone beats Tivo_Ted
someone up-thread says they cannot remove the pop-up ads from the bottom of their screen. For me, when they first appear on my screen, there is no dismissal feature -- but waiting just a few more seconds, I do get an extra "X" in the ad's upper-right corner, and clicking that does remove the pop-up. I'm running an older version of Firefox, if that makes a difference. It's annoying at first, but learning to be patient has lowered my stress levels.
The same removal "X" is on the bottom pop-up used on titantv.com and killing the ad sticks over page changes.
Ironic that this forum, full of complaints about Tivo inserting ads, is inserting an almost continual series of ads at the bottom, compounded by erratic behavior when I attempt to delete them. I hope the forum solution of charging users to avoid the ads does not inspire Tivo to seek more revenue!
They're back? There are gone from titantv.com and moved to tvguide.com as of last week.
We who complain about TiVo ads paid for the service, and the equipment. We who paid for the forum here don't get those ads. Notice the common thread.
Tivo, just stop the ad insanity already!!!
