    Channels, Signal Strength but it's a diagnostic with real time information, so I don't mind the SD.

    I found a solution for the blinding highlight bar. I use my glasses left over from the solar eclipse, and the new interface looks much better now.

    Why would I want to wade through a bunch of threads that have nothing to do with my model of TiVo when there should be something about it in the Roamio forum? That makes no sense.

    Actually it makes perfect sense, especially since you were unable to find posts about it in the Roamio forum.

    When i don't find my particular issue in the Premiere forum or the Series 3 forum, i then go to The Help forum and the Coffee House forum and i usually find pertinent posts there.

    This software update had been out on all models for about a month before you started your own thread, but by then there were already many existing threads about this huge change on those other two forums, many of which contained posts from Roamio owners.

    Or i just google it and invariably get pointed back to TCF.

    So, a change to the Roamio user interface, there's nothing about it in the Roamio forum, I should just assume that there will be something about it in a general TiVo (i.e. non-Roamio) forum. As i said before, that makes absolutely no sense. I guess if I had looked in the Help Forum and Coffee House and found nothing there, then I should have made a search in a general Non-TiVo DVR forum since that is the same logic.

    Yes, absolutely. And also in the Help forum while we're at it.

    Do you think such a huge and sudden change in an interface is only limited to the discontinued Roamio model?


    But had you looked in the Help forum or Coffee House forum you would have immediately found your answers. Not sure why you'd bring up a Non-Tivo forum, that doesn't make sense and is not the same logic.

    I don't get why you think it makes absolutely no sense to check the Help forum and/or the Coffee House forum when you don't find your issue in the Roamio forum. The fact that there were so many existing threads discussing this update in both of those forums is a clear indication that those are the forums that are most useful.

    Why look through forums at all? Just use the search box at the upper right. Type in "change" or "colors" or "hate" or your keyword of choice, and lots of threads are listed.

    As a Roamio Basic / OTA owner, in order to 'stay current', my Watched Forums are:
    Since I use kmttg, pyTiVo and pyTiVo Desktop and I plan to upgrade my HDDs, I find that LURKing in these forums keeps me abreast of useful information.
    I cannot grasp how SO MANY folks can believe that they are the FIRST to discover things that have such a global / wide-reaching effect that THEY must create a NEW thread and start yet another rant. Granted, I've always been more interested in technology so I've never taken a psych course but, like watching today's youth on certain reality shows, I'm constantly surprised (and somewhat saddened). :rolleyes:

    Why look through the forums or use SEARCH when it's so easy to just create another rant / (ahem) thread - it's the "IN" thing now :cool:, or haven't you noticed... :rolleyes:

    :D

    It's pretty easy, those are the users that just want TCF to be a Google where answers are tailored just to them, it's the selfish "me first" mentality that shows up all too often on the web, why should you search when you can make your very own thread that's all about you?

    Seriously there are about a bajillion of these threads on TCF right now, multiples in almost all the sub-forums, it's gotten to the point of ridiculousness.

    Don't forget those members who will reply to a post with the same response that can be found a few posts earlier.

    Unbelievable. I come here, look through the Roamio threads for something about my issue. I look through several pages of threads and since I see nothing about it, I post a question and all i get is crap thrown at me. If one person had posted in the Roamio forum, like I am, we wouldn't be having this useless back and forth. But guess what? If someone comes looking through the Roamio forum now for the same answers I did, they will find a thread explaining it.

    And yet, there were no posts in the Roamio subforum. Imagine that?
