I think he means he went from the DirecTiVo to the regular DirecTV DVR.
To those of you complaining about slow menu redraw times: Try changing your screen type to "Smart Screen" instead of "16x9 Widescreen". All HD/SD content will still be passed over component/HDMI in native resolution...the only difference will be that the TiVo menu system will now be in SD. Doesn't really change its appearance or functionality, and it draws much faster.
Ah yes, reading it again now, that makes more sense.
Now THAT'S a tip I look forward to trying when I get home! Thanks, Saxion!
Why would this make the Menu System "Standard Def"? I thought native for the Menus was 720? At any rate, I tried this and not sure if it's any faster... Is there any downside to switching from 16:9 to "Smartscreen"?
Thanks. I am aware of that...just pointing out a change in the behaver with 8.1. Not a big concern for me, just a change to get use too.
The only downside I found using the "Smartscreen" was that it seemed the aspect button (panel/full/zoom) no longer worked. This is with a Sharp Aquos 32" LCD. This was an issue for me since Sci-Fi broadcasts a number of their shows now in letterboxed WS, so using the zoom feature is nice. I actually prefer the menus in the 4:3 aspect, but I can live with them stretched til they fix that.
I still have not received the 8.1 update. Patiently waiting. I just got my S3 in January, so I may be one on the very end of the list.
Has anyone had this problem, when going to photos, music and more, and choose Nikon HD, I get an error #43-501. Any ideas why?
I have seen the same. No idea why.
I doubt very much when you bought your S3 or when you activated your service for it has anything to do with when you will receive the update. The service number theory however is interesting. It was discussed earleir in this thread.
I remember hearing that Nikon HD doesn't work for anyone... S2 or S3. I could be wrong about that, though.
I'm too lazy to do a site search but it could be because it's waiting for Tivocast and that's another week or two out.
I hate to break it to you, but it's VERY unlikely that the Series3 will ever be able to transfer HD recordings to your Series2 boxes..
You've allowed a certain amount of optimism to exist that it might happen; you shouldn't do that.
If you don't delete them, they will stop downloading. Unlike a SP, it will not remove the oldest to make remove for new ones.
What's the over-under on being able to transfer SD recordings FROM the Series2 boxes to the Series3?
Nah, Nikon HD is an HME menu item, it's been on the S3 long before 8.1 and TiVoCast were brought up...
I'm still hopeful and I will be until the day comes and they either deliver or deny.
No year. Very clever
What is the likelihood that of MRV between 2 T3's?
