    I think having the show title above the progress bar when paused would be nice. I was really surprised it wasn't there (I'm a Tivo newbie).

    Good idea. When paused, it should display the show title, the channel, the time and <Select> for more info, which would bring up the standard info overlay.

    I think if they were to add this, it should be an option, not the default. Personally, I often pause a show to look at some detail in a particular scene, and I already feel like the progress bar (sometimes with an ad even) blocks the screen. I wouldn't want even more info blocking the screen that I would have to clear in order to see things in the scene. To each his own, I guess, as long as they're optional. :)

    They can't do that because that's where they put the ad. :(

    I've seen people refer to Ads on their Tivo... But in the month I've had mine I've never seen any ads. So I don't know where they appear.

    Just press the Clear button while the screen is paused and all on-screen graphics will disappear.

    The appear above the green play bar and can be quite large.

    You may or may not know this but if you press Right on the D-pad it will show the main banner with the show title.

    Yes, I know I can do that. It's just already bad enough having an ad take up that space some of the time. I don't want program info to always take up that space, requiring me to press Clear even more often than I already need to.
