    It probably will very shortly. If I thought that would make it go away permanently I would order a hard drive tonight.

    I am kind of liking it. Been gone since about 10am today. I will let you know if it ever comes back. It shows on all of my other TIVOs.

    Wish I knew what caused it. Others I am sure upgraded their HDD but that is when it started. Was there before and not once (just checked) has it shown after.

    So what's up there if there is no discovery bar? Just empty space? If I disconnect my Roamio from the internet the discovery bar is replaced with an error message. Not really an improvement.

    I wish we had the option to remove it and make the My Shows list use the whole screen, like when I browse to another TiVo. Even if it stayed in TiVo Central.

    I sure wish there were one more option in the Discovery Bar config screen: turn it off.

    It would not be as annoying if there were a less subtle indication that there is no more "up" to scroll.

    I find myself moving up through a list (say, My Shows) and, thinking there is more to the list that will scroll, I hit the up button again, resulting in me landing in the Discover bar.

    Indeed, if TiVo is looking at those menu stats, they would think that I actually use and like the Discover bar, when the reality is I only land on it in error.

    But it would be really nice if I could config it to disappear.

    I probably do that a dozen times a day. A small thing but annoying.

    It's a sign of a poorly designed UI.
