    I see a Blockbuster there. And it seems to have a whole bunch of other services and you can add some "local" stuff with TiVo Desktop. Is there way to add Netflix or Hulu service service to the menu?

    Also, can you delete stuff like those little games they put on the menu. It doesn't seem like it belongs there and takes up space.

    Do you have a Premiere? If so are you using the HD or SD UI? Netflix is available on all Series 3 and Premiere TiVos. Hulu+ is only available on Premieres and is located in different places depending on if you are using the HD or SD UI. Sorry I can not remember more details.

    I have an RCN TiVo, so I think they change the menus. My guess is that it's based on whomever they are promoting.

    Oh so my TiVo is like a "locked phone" where they install whatever firmware they want on it and you can't change it.

    Yes, RCN's Tivo that it rents out to it's customers, is different from a regular Tivo.

    Everyone's Tivo is like a "locked phone".

    Yours just has fewer features.
