    That is indeed the issue I had when recording click on bbc news, it's not down as an episode so all showings get recorded as tivo doesn't know any better. I just pull up the bbc iplayer now instead to watch it

    Any information on when some of the numerous bugs are going to fixed? I personally was assured (back in February) that there would be frequent and constant bug fixes and enhancements up until public go-live. Weekly updates were indicated. Clearly this has not been happening.

    Tend to agree, I really expected for other bugs to be fixed and new features added before full release. I find it really odd that you can now setup Facebook access on the web but still no apps on Tivo itself?

    AE8 also seems to have introduced a weird issue with the pin reseting back to default and also my GUI crashes on the red circle sometimes with no cleary pattern why.

    Thanks Keir but my Tivo is not picking up these "new" HD channels. Even when i try to type the channel number in directly it jumps to numbers either side :confused:

    Guess I'll try again. Is there anything I should do to force an EPG update? Apologises if this has been asked before and please feel free to point me to the appropriate stickie.

    My box is still recording some sd versions instead of hd suggestions and is my biggest gripe with the box and a lot of others have got the same problem,I notice you have stated that it should do already and yours is already doing that(i wish) does that mean vm are not gonna do anything about it?

    i checked and had the channels and set a recording. the recording is in my shows but I haven't watched it yet.

    looks like we're no longer getting the "your lineup has changed" messages.

    I believe the TiVo Premier in the US lets you switch off all the Flash based interface and return to a simple TiVo "Classic" look.

    It does, but that's not what's being asked. VM will never go for turning off the Flash menus so I think the issue shouldn't be clouded with that.

    The Premier in the US supports the old style on screen guide as a separate option and that's what would be nice to have.

    Another vote for the "alternative" semi-transparant programme guide. I've owned several TIVOs, both here and in the US, and have always used that guide, as it is far quicker to scan through the channels that I use most.

    Is there any possibility of keeping the video mini window when setting a season pass? I like the way I can set recordings whilst watching something, even watching a recording, but when you go out of the HD menus and select the season pass option you're dumped into an SD window and lose the programme you were watching.

    It does seem odd that when you set a series link from the discovery bar or search screen it uses an HD interface but uses the SD interface elsewhere.

    I hadn't discovered that, I'll have to have a play. Was doing mine from the main guide.

    I know it has been mentioned in the wish list thread, but worth another, are there any plans to make the VMT box DNLA compliant, so that files on network attached devices on a home network can be streamed and played?

    I agree with regards to the different UI screens, some are in HD and some in SD, the SD screens really ruin the whole experience and VM should have had all this rolled out when TiVo went live it should look amazing and all screens should be flawless.

    Not only that but the Live TV ptictures jumps all over the place form PIP to full screen and back. Total mess and makes it look totally amateurish

    The poster removed then himself.

    As the thread looks odd without them - there isn't much point in it remaining active.
