    How do I remove this? TWC streams almost all the channels in HD from the lower 1-100 and 1200+ I have all the channels I normally watch in my favorites like 2, 4, 7,11 etc. When i change the channel on any of these i get this prompt and if i Press D it takes me to the 12xx equivalent which is also in HD. So is there anyway to get rid of this prompt?

    Not a helpful comment! All my Tv's are HD, this is a issue with the software and how the cable card is being interpreted by Tivo i suspect. I don't believe there is an option to turn this off.

    Try removing the duplicated 12xx HD channels from your Channel List.

    For me, one of the great things about using a TiVo with FiOS is that SEARCHes *ONLY* return shows and movies on the channels that I subscribe to. With a FiOS STB or DVR, all of the Premium channels are returned when you SEARCH for a movie. With my new Roamio, yes I did have to sit down and eliminate a few hundred channels but now it's done, SEARCHes work great, and if / when I get the new software I'll see if I ever get the "Press D..." message. ;)

    I went through and eliminated about 100 checked off channels in the upper scan that we don't watch. What i found is that while it does not give the option to press D for HD it does have a slight lag when changing channels now. I guess it is either deal with the lag or the prompt. shame

    As a retired Senior Citizen, I watch (recorded) shows at all hours of the day. There's a big thread here about 'Blue Spinning Circle of Death'. I only see that during Prime Time and maybe on the weekends. New TiVos (compared to my S1 and ReplayTVs) just love to talk to 'Mother' - all that data (pictures, descriptions, birth dates, etc...) has to be kept somewhere.

    You could try re-selecting those channels and see if the lag disappears, or you could wait and see if it gets better outside of Prime Time. I can't see what you did creating the lag...

    I contacted Tivo about this and apparently they are aware of it and suggested is provide feedback on their website b/c like most issues unless they get a lot of complaints they will not bump up new issues as a priority. I filled out the feedback and sent it but more people need to do the same to fix this. Oh well

    Is this message really that bothersom? Really? It's so small and last as long as the banner. It's not like it shows up in the middle of the screen in the middle of the show!

    That is not the point, to some yes it is bothersome when it was not there prior to the update! The lag is a bigger problem that Tivo is aware of.

    I have no lag so it must be isolated. I'm happy with this update are there things I still don't like sure but TiVo is not going to tailor its software to please me 100%. Nor should anyone else think that.

    No one is asking for specifics and I'm very happy hey are still developing the software, but updates that introduce issues are called "bugs" and need to be addressed. When Tivo themselves admits there is a known issue than enough said!

    Again I have no lag. In fact my minis are faster in playing recordings and the dreaded audio drop coming out or in to TiVo central is all but gone. I haven't had a blue spinning circle either and all is working great!

    Read post #7, the lag is a result of eliminating duplicate HD channels to remove the prompt. Glad you are not having issues but it is a known problem Tivo is aware of so enough said.

    Is it just hd? I've eliminated ever sd channel in the lists that has an HD channel and no lag.

    No, it has nothing to do with SD. This is why you are not seeing the lag, comparing apples to oranges here.

    So HD channels being removed from the available channels create a lag but not removing SD channels. Not seeing why they would be different they are channels regardless of resolution. But I guess anything is possible.

    I removed hundreds of channels from my Comcast lineup, it only takes about 10 minutes and done.

    The OP does not have any SD channels because TWC has a auto tune to HD feature. So if the OP selects channel 2 it will be in HD and not SD. The problem is the new TiVo feature thinks 2 is an SD channel and the watch in HD just sends him to an exact HD duplicate channel in the 1200 range.

    in order for him to do what you did he would have to remove all the auto tune to HD channels in the lower channel list and keep the duplicates in the 1200 range. The OP wants to keep the lower auto tune to HD channels and eliminate the upper HD duplicates.
