    I've had my roamio a few months and am flummoxed . . .

    If I'm watching a recorded show, and hit the Tivo menu button, the show will keep playing in the corner.

    How do I get back to full screen? If I press live TV, it switches to, well, live TV. I just want to pop the recorded show back to full screen.

    Mission...
    To turn it off permanently (which is what I do):
    TiVo Central - Settings & Messages - Settings - Displays - Video Window - Off

    As it mentions in that screen you can use the |> (slow) button to temporarily toggle it on/off.

    So for case where you want to return to full screen while the Video Window is showing in the corner press slow.

    Thanks . . . at least I don't feel quite so silly for missing something totally obvious. Seems a little buried . . .

    (I actually like the video window - except for not being able to get out of it)

    The Zoom button should pop you back to what's playing in the upper corner.

    ^^^ this. The zoom button is great for getting out of menus.

    I believe I saw this useful mnemonic on one of the Tivo.com help pages [paraphrased]:

    To get back to full screen press the Zoom (as in "Re-zoom") button.
    :)

    Thanks, that's been driving me crazy. I guess the clear or back buttons would be too obvious.

    I had been using the guide to leave the Tivo menu, the press guide again and you are back to full screen.

    I'm looking forward to trying the zoom button tonight. I just hope it doesn't also change the zoom setting.

    Now I really know how to do it - works just as promised with no ill effects.
