    "Press DISPLAY button for more info"

    I'm pretty sure thats what it says, I'm not in front of the TV right now. But go to Now Playing List and select a show and you should see that text to the right. Has that always been there? Where's the DISPLAY button on the Peanut? Is this new text? I don't recall ever seeing it.

    It says "Press INFO button"

    The "function" has always been there, but the text was added in the 6.x software release.

    I have to double check mine when I get home.. but I could of sworn mine didn't say that.. thats what I originally thought it said and I never questioned it cause it made sense.. but I could of sworn that twice recently I read "press DISPLAY button" thats what inspired me to post the question.. I'll check again and reply back with whether or not I'm losing my mind.

    IIRC, when for some reason the TiVo thinks you are using the old remote will change the message. Because the older remotes didn't have an info button, only the display button.

    I know my Series 1 DTiVo has a display button, not an info button, and any messages reflect that...

    And I know that sometimes when the TiVo first boots is assumes that you have the old style remote with the single livetv/guide button (which confuses people when they press live tv and get the guide) rather than the newer remote with separate buttons.
