    I watched a dLife Tivocast and then deleted the program. TiVo then downloaded the same program again. Every time I delete the program, TiVo will download the same video again. Is anyone else having this same issue with 8.1?

    I have been having the same problem, which started when the TivoCast service was made available with the recent service update. I had to delete a show numerous times in a row before it permamently ceased future downloads. I assumed it was resolved, but apparently it has not and hopefully it will be corrected, when the full suite of functionality is updated. As everyone is aware, we are not able to manage the TivoCast downloads via S3, but rather via the Tivo website.

    I am now seeing occasional brief audio drop-outs with slight video glitches on OTA recordings (my Series 3 is set up OTA-only). These are very brief interruptions, and are not a major problem, but I cannot remember seeing this before the upgrade.

    ...and that is VERY limited. The only thing you can do is specify how many eps to keep. You can't specify how long to keep the episode (though you can do that on your TiVo after it downloads). You can't even delete a TiVoCast SP. It's ridiculous.

    I feel stupid posting this but...

    How on earth do I use TiVoCast? I can't find anything on my machine that ever approaches the word, or how to access the function.

    I'm running 8.1.1-01-2-648 BTW.

    I just know it's going to be something simple and I'm just a big dumb idiot. :)

    It's not on our Series3 boxes (yet). You have to visit tivo.com

    The receiver-side of the interface to control subscriptions isn't functional for Series 3 units yet; there was some sort of last-minute hiccup they're in the process of fixing. However you can go online (www.tivo.com/tivocast) and start subscriptions to them and they'll make it to your system for viewing. You just won't be able to unsubscribe until they fix whatever is broken... and I gather they expect that to happen within a matter of hours, not days/many days.

    My SD recording of BSG had audio dropouts but NO pixelation. It was the first time ever I'd experienced the dropouts. Little "blips" of new sound a dozen or so times thru the episode.

    Jeez, too bad for 8.1 huh? :(

    chsscgas, sorry to hear about this issue. We haven't seen that in a long time. Can you please e-mail me (estephen@tivo.com) with your TiVo Service Number?

    Thanks,
    Stephen

    since I got the 8.1 update I get pixelation when I change channels, but its only when the channel is tunning in. Not that big of a deal but it kicked in with the update.

    Same problem here. Schedulled just one show of CNET, watched and deleted it and , immediately after, a download of the very same show started.

    Thanks for the reply. I have tried and tried again to restore the skip but no joy. I hear the invalid key drum boom sound when I press the 3 button or the 0 button. TiVo customer care will not help me with this unsupported feature. Is the series 3 TiVo 30 second skip programming the same as series 2? I don't understand why it doesn't work for me.

    Yes, the sequence is the same for a Series 3:

    While playing a recorded program -

    Select - Play - Select - 3 - 0 - Select

    Works fine after the update - you must be missing something.

    Though not frequently, I have started to notice brief audio silences when watching a recorded show. It always has happed on a high definition channel. Today I noticed it once. I will start paying attention and see how often it reocurrs. I had thought it was the cable signal, but after reading some posts, I wonder if it is the TIVO?

    Now wondering....

    Today I deleted a program from a group (total of 3 programs in the group), then got the message that the group was empty and to press the left arrow. When I do, I return to the NPL and the group is still there! I move into the group and the remaining 2 programs were still there!

    Anyone else seen this?

    FYI, no problems at all with my Feb 25 (last Sunday) BSG recording on my S3 with 8.1.1. Could have been your source had issues.

    I've seen that as well. I deleted a program out of the HD Programs group, there were probably like 6 programs in there and it said the group was empty. Sure enough went back in and it wasn't.

    Don't blame the S3 by default; check with a different OTA tuner if you can.

    My local HD stations have dropouts in video and audio all the time, and it has nothing to do with the TiVo; in fact the S3 is noticeably less sensitive to dropouts than my other ATSC tuners have been.

    Too many similar occurrances after 8.1 to be a coincidence since I never had these issues before.
