I agree, BTW, you can join in too!
FWIW, I've been LMAO reading the latest posts to this thread. I hope Margret can read it with a sense of humor, too.
This is what i have been trying to say in a few of my posts in this thread, if you don't want to do as the OP asks, for whatever reason, don't post to this thread, start another Thread as in I don't want to help Margret and this is why This is what I am calling respect for what Margret is asking for.
This Thread is already getting out of hand an has little to do with what the OP (Margret) wanted, not good for further participation in this form of TiVo people.
In the past, a "New features" message would show up when new TiVo software was released. This message never included bug fixes. So if a new version contained only bug fixes, there was no message.
I work in software development in a large company, and we have tech writers that spend a lot of time putting together public release notes using information pulled from the development organization. In general, unless it is something that the customer can see (performance, new or changed features, bugs reported by customers), it doesn't go in the release documentation. So from this perspective, soliciting reported changes from customers and making comments on those observations actually makes sense, in a weird way. For example, one does not want to spill the beans about changes being done in anticipation of some as yet unannounced new functionality. And one does not want to go into detail about tweaks done to some proprietary algorithm.
So thank you, Margret, for your effort
Are we any closer to be able to stream our free Amazon Prime content to our TiVos? Now that the software supports streaming, it seems more doable. Please, Margret!
Sorry if this was asked before but why were the filters removed from the live TV guide? I use them all the time during sporting events and movies. Is there a way that TiVo could consider brining them back.
The software has supported streaming (of netflix) for quite a long time.
An answer on this would be nice, and I'm sure appreciated by all.
bad form to quote myself, i guess, as a general rule. but i think i've found the cause of this problem. if you set the clock in sd mode it is displayed in the middle of the screen in hd mode. but my comparison with it on and off show clearly that it causes drawing, re-drawing, and performance problems. removing the clock solved the problems in the quoted text above. hope this helps others.
Number 1 complaint about the premier now is that they removed filters! Hd still has them. was going to upgrade the hd to an elite, but without filters not going to do it as the hd tivo has become the main tivo now.
I think my number one complaint with 20.2 is that it still doesn't make a note of its place in the My Shows list when I press play, and then when I back out into the list later it ends up in the wrong place. This is especially concerning when I intend to back out and immediately delete whatever I was just watching. I use the SDUI.
If you don't like her request, could you please just decide to ignore the thread? Instead of detracting from it? Thanks!
Yes, no worries.
I have been pointed to the changelog thread, and I will use that as a double check along with our internal notes. I promised I would write something up, and I will.
TiVoJerry did say this forum helped his skin.
I'm copying some of this another thread with the hope you can explain why this change was made.
There is a problem when you want to do a one time recording of a show from the Guide and want to add time to it. If the show is not the next airing, you're forced to scroll through "Upcoming" to find the episode you want to record. This only happens with the HDUI.
Pick a show that's in heavy repeats(Office/Simpsons) or airs nightly(Letterman/Leno/Conan). In the HDUI Guide, select an episode airing sometime in the next 7-10 days and try setting it to record with extra time. When you go into "Season pass & other options", the choice given is "record next episode". Next episode is not what you're trying to record. You have to scroll through "Upcoming" to find it.
Also just setting up a simple season pass for a show defaults to whatever channel has the next showing instead of the channel that the season pass originated from. For example if I use the guide to set up a season pass for 30 Rock on NBC which is channel 808, the season pass might actually get set up for WGN which is channel 709 since they show reruns in the morning. The user shouldn't have to change this because it should automatically default to the channel that the season pass originated from using the guide.
Yes, another example of having to scroll through "Upcoming". I should have included this.
In fact, if you select a show that is already set to record, you run into this as well. There should be buttons to "modify recording options" and "cancel this recording" on the first screen that pops up when you select it in the guide. The only options are "record as planned" and "season pass and other options". If you select "season pass and other options", you get the behavior you already described.
Also, I didn't find a good way to change the recording options for a show you are watching and recording at the same time. Clicking info->select used to bring you to a menu where you could change options or cancel the recording. Now the only options are to continue recording or stop recording. This is a step backwards.
Yes Kudis @ Margret for takin time away from her busy job to address issues we are experiencing with our devices...
