    Oh how I wish. Today, Quckmode is going wonky on me. Picture this. I am watching a show and want a snack so I press Pause. Until today, all I had to do is press the Play button. Nope. Now I get the floating Quickmode toggle window which either turns Quickmode on or off. Each and every time I pause the show. I cannot just press play without that toggle. Is this not happening for you?

    You have options when the QuickMode toggle window appears:
    • When the QuickMode toggle window appears, press Play and it will go away without changing the quick mode.
    • After pressing Pause, press Pause again to continue playing with no QuickMode toggle window at all.
    • When the QuickMode toggle window appears, press Clear and the QuickMode toggle window will go away without changing the quick mode.
    • Do nothing but enjoy your snack and the QuickMode toggle window will time out and go away with no changes.

    Activate the 'Quick Clear Play Bar' SPS code?

    It can be set using KMTTG.

    Sure, the toggle comes up telling you to press select to toggle it on/off, but you’re free to ignore that and just hit play to resume your show.

    I am surprised that people are finding no use for quick mode. I actually hacked up KMTTG to automatically start quick mode when I start watching a show. There are only a few things I turn it off for (music, some movies, some shows that already have fast speaking dialog). I didn't even want to come back to tivo until they had it (WMC got me hooked). Wish it had a configurable speed - at least add a 1.5... Some of us really like to watch (more) TV.

    This is why we can’t have nice things. And why General release stuff has to be super simple.

    Tell me about it. If the Magic 8-Ball was invented today, the instructions on the box would read..1) Open lid on top of box, 2) Gently remove plastic ball with round glass window facing you 3) Holding ball in your hand gently rock/shake it left to right 4) Look at round glass window for the ball's prediction/fortune. WARNING: Do not attempt to open ball, ball has no user-serviceable parts inside.

    for me it doesn't. Hitting play does nothing until I press OK and that brings up the dialog with either turn on or turn on QuIck Mode. If it's on, then I have to go through the cycle to turn it off.

    That shouldn’t happen. Mine just shows the status (off or on) and gives directions to press select to change it. I don’t want to change it so I don’t press select.

    It shouldn't but for me this is what happens. I am watching a show and press pause. Then I press play. Nothing happens. I press play again and get the quickmode popup. If quickmode is off I have to press OK which turns it on but I don't want it. So I have to press play again which brings up the popup and I press ok which turns off quickmode. Oddly enough a few days ago I didn't get this behaviour at all. No quickmod popup.

    No idea why it would do that. That does sound pretty annoying.

    You “have to” press ok? No, you don’t. If you press play, you get a HINT that IF you press OK, quick mode will turn on. The play bar will go away by itself or you can hit clear (return) or hit play again.

    You don’t HAVE TO press OK. It is a suggestion not a requirement.

    1. What happens if you press pause when the video is already paused? That should unpause it.

    2. Pressing play will also unpause. Your play button behavior is unique to just you, so I suspect either a bad remote control or interference that is disrupting the play button function. Can you try a different remote?

    3. Is the remote in IR mode or RF mode? The LED on the remote blinks red if in IR mode and amber if it's in RF mode. RF mode in theory is subject to less interference but you can toggle to the other mode and see if it helps.

    4. Everybody gets the quick mode pop-up when they pause. As long as you don't press Select or OK, it doesn't get activated. We all just ignore it.

    5. You can also use the instructions on that web page to perform a global reset of the remote, then re-pair your remote with the Tivo.

    I have to hit play then select when I pause a live or record show or hit skip 30 second forward. Then I have to 10 second rewind 3 times to get back where I was when I paused. It don’t matter if Quick Mode Off or On. 20210407_193045.jpg

    My rewind is only 6 seconds, so it's even worse. :cool:
