    Yesterday I was watching a recorded episode of Stargate: SG-1. I had to go out so I paused the playback and turned off the monitor. When I got home, I turned it back on, and decided instead of continuing to watch the show, I'd watch something else first. So I pressed the LEFT button on the remote, and this screen came up:


    When I pressed SELECT (or maybe it was LEFT again) I was back in the Stargate: SG-1 folder which had both the episode I was watching and one other episode; from there everything seemed to work OK again. I even tried resuming playback, pausing and repeating what happened before, but it didn't show the above screen again.

    Just thought you'd like to know. :)

    I've seen this several times. It usually happens if you start watching a program in Now Playing, from the beginning, while it's still recording. If you watch it all the way through (so that the program stops recording while you're still watching it), when you 'Left' back out of the "Delete/Keep" screen you usually get this 'No information' screen.

    I reported it to Tivo a while back -- I don't think it's regarded as a serious issue, and I'd agree, given I'm still getting unwatchable pixellation on some channels.

    Finally, proof: 500 channels, and nothing on.

    Interesting that the screen has Page Up and Page Down arrows also. Wonder what happens when you press them.

    I've seen that if the Now Playing list changes while in an item. For example - hit 'Clear' on items then select before the NPL has time to update and contract. That will often cause this to appear once the list consolidates. Seems like a pointer error - the unit can't 'follow' the item when its index in the list changes.

    The strange part if that's the case is that it still knew it was a program I'd given one thumbs up to.
