    It's always worked but if you did a lifetime transfer, check your TiVo configurations in your TiVo online account - the TiVo names seem to swap when the transfer finally goes through.

    ditto...that is, on TCO. Not on Yahoo, though.

    So the reason I haven't gotten 8.1 on my S3 yet is because of you, huh? Thanks a lot, CrispyCritter. :rolleyes:

    What you talking about Willis? When I lived in California for 4 years the Oscars were just as live as they are here on the East coast. They just started 3 hours earlier.

    You are describing endpad plus. This is the biggest thing I miss from the DirecTiVo's. I'd love to hack the S3 just for this reason..

    I also wish Tivo would add this option. It's the only feature I miss from the FiOS DVR.

    With the FiOS DVR, all recordings are padded automatically (2 minutes) when doing so doesn't create a conflict with another program. I don't understand why Tivo hasn't added this capability.

    It's best to keep reading in a thread before replying... a later post of mine clarified I was "inspired" by endpadplus, and I expressed the same disappointment that I lost that enhancement when "upgrading" to the Series 3.

    Any idea if the guide date may show up with 8.1 and in-the-clear QAM? I am talking about the local rebroadcast HD channels via cable. Right now Tivo can tune them, but no guide data.

    Which means that for the next person, it will take 12 attempts :)

    Any word on QAM remapping? This is really all I am waiting for.

    BeyondTV does the same thing, with infinite +/- on either end of the recording. With three tuners, my BTV box never had to cut anything.

    And this had me very confused the other day, when it kept prompting me to schedule recordings on my series 1....

    I always thought this was a broadcast issue. I see it from time to time on my Series 3. But I also saw the exact same thing on the over-the-air HDTV tuner I used previously, whenever there was a weak signal.

    I've had a succesful schedule from yahoo before.

    Is there anywhere that lists all the upgrades with 8.1? The only thing I've seen implemented for 8.1 is a delete folder? What other features or improvements are there?

    I'll "third" this. Has anyone been able to check for this? A lot of people are waiting for this feature.

    I should have clarified -- Yahoo won't integrate digital and cable listings, and, when I select OTA only, the digital channel listings are screwed up. So, yes, it does work, but not as well at TCO.

    This update is really cool! I like the free space indicator and the integrated bittorrent client that downloads movies directly to the Tivo! :eek: :up: :up: :up:
