    What was the fiix? I also may be having some brightness issues.

    One little trick I learned that I think helps a little bit is if you hit the play button first and then hit the RW button it does jump back. The same doesn't work for the FF though. Maybe Caavo can implement this in the next update for both RW and FF. That would be a good work around for me.

    As for the ring gestures, I've been using them, but they are more difficult to use. The instructions say it should be a 120 degree motion, but for me it requires about 270 degree motion. Anyone else have a similar experience?

    My Samsung TV has an option in the settings to "Reset Picture". That did it. It's been working perfectly ever since.

    I've been using the Caavo now for a couple of week and so far its been pretty good for a replacement of my Harmony, but had mixed results with its search,
    - When I tried to use its search, it seems to favor paid content and doesn't know about what is available on demand from Spectrum. (it didn't identify my Spectrum DVR during discovery, so maybe that's it... or maybe it isn't supposed to do this). It does find live content that hasn't been showed, and if it took me to that, then I could hit record. But, more often than not it takes me to the wrong channel. For example, I searched for Game of Thrones, when an episode was playing live, and it took me to the wrong HBO channel. I tried the search a few times and then abandoned it for now.
    - As a remote, its been pretty reliable. My Harmony kept losing WiFi multiple times a day. The one quirk is that I thought I read that you could still use your regular remotes and it would stay in sync. I've not completely trained the family on Caavo yet, so they are using the Spectrum remote and Roku remote. There doesn't seem to be a way to switch input to go to the Roku from the cable box, so they get stuck there. It makes sense since its all going to one TV input, but should the Caavo notice that the TV remote is asking to change input and intercept that somehow? Not sure that's even possible.

    Any news on if/when Caavo will be able to access DVR recordings on Tivo?

    Which version of Tivo. We are using the new UI and can access all our recordings on any Tivo we own through Caavo. Just a side note, someone already is seling their Caavo in Craigslist in my area for $50. Someone is not happy.

    Hey now! I just won a free Control Center + lifetime sub via Caavo's CES promotion on Facebook! Check out their Facebook page for how to enter as I believe that they are doing something every day!

    have been using control center for a few weeks now and it has worked perfectly. My lists within "Watch" works with netflix, hulu and amazon , unlike the original caavo that only worked with netflix. My only complaint is it is limited to 4 devices, if it had 8 it would be awesome, maybe the next version will

    But they didn’t use the caavo to control the devices. Just switch, it appears. They used the native device remotes.

    How do we do the jump back on TiVo using the Caavo remote?

    There are to ways. You can either do a long press of the rewind button or you can set the circular ring to have that capability.

    I tried following the directions to set the ring for that and the option to change the ring settings wasn't where the instructions said they would be. I'll try the RW button. Thanks.

    Did you go to Caavo > Settings > Devices > TiVo > Control Settings > Ring Gesture and then select “Skip Back/Skip Forward”? Once you do that you then need to run your finger around the outside ring in a circular motion and it will skip.

    BTW - If you select the last option (“Disabled -Skip Back/Skip Foprward Primary”), it will reverse the long press/short press options for the Rewind/FF button, i.e., a short press will skip and a long press will FF or Rewind. Also, while it is not very clear, if you select the second option (“Rew/FF”), it will reverse the long and short press commands of the Rewind/FF button so that a short press is skip and long press is Rewind or FF, PLUS it will also then still allow the ring for FF and Reverse.

    When I go to Caavo > Setting > Devices > TiVo > Control Settings, there's no option for Ring Gestures. The only options are Auto-Switch Settings or Change Control Type. Neither of those takes me to Ring Gestures.

    Hmmm - that’s strange. For me there are three options and the middle option is “Ring Gesture”. I have a TiVo Bolt. Maybe it depends on the type of TiVo? You should probably have an online chat with Caavo. I’ve found them to be very helpful.
