    the first thing i do after a tivo reboot is to restore the 'quick hide' of the bottom status bar using sps[pause]s. this has become impossible to implement in the hd menus unless there is a showcase recording and even in the sd menus you need an ad so you can pause, hit the down arrow, then hit play and proceed with the code.

    problem is, for 3 days now i have had no ads nor are there any suitable showcase recordings. other than saving a previous recording that has the ads (are they embedded or served on the fly?) what options do i have?

    thanks,

    well, i got no bites whatsoever on this thread. it would be nice to know if there's a way to find a program with an ad so you can do the sps(pse)s thing to quick-clear the time bar. as it was, i had to wait 7 days for one to finally show up.

    it's highly ironic to have to depend on an ad, (which, considering how much i pay for tivo service, i strongly object to) in order to enable a needed feature. there's gotta be a better way!
