Here's a suggestion that would address one of my pet peeves. When I'm watching something recorded on Tivo and I get interrupted by the real world, I will often just hit the Tivo button to bring up the menus. This pauses my show, and cuts off the sound. (Or maybe I was just in the menus for some purpose when I walked away from the Tivo.) Yes I know I could hit pause, but I don't like to walk away and leave that static image, due to the risk of burn-in. When the menus "time-out" 10 or 15 minutes later, Tivo switches back to "Live TV" and on comes the volume, full blast. Very annoying. It's like a 15 minute alarm clock that demands you go back to the Tivo, which is exactly what I'm forced to do, to cut off the sound. It would be very nice indeed if when Tivo automatically switched back to live tv after the inactivity time out (which it does as a "screensaver" function I'm sure) it would mute the volume on the audio outputs. At the first touch of the remote, it could un-mute. It's a simple thing to do, and it would prevent all those unwelcome interruptions.
