    Is there any way to remove the following new "features"?

    Yahoo! Photos
    Yahoo! Weather
    Yahoo! Traffic
    Browse & Buy Movie Tickets
    Live365
    Podcaster
    SameGame
    Wordsmith
    Skull & Bones​

    Failing that, is there anyway to push them to the bottom of the list with the equally useless "New Music at Best Buy" and "Nikon: Legends Behind the Lens"?

    I don't think there's a way to do this right now.

    It'd be nice if TiVo started using something similar to the subscription manager at apps.tv so we could get control of that list. With all of my Galleon apps, and now those Yahoo! apps, the list is long and disorganized, I agree.

    I like some of the new features. It would be nice if you could reorder them. I would like to see my music at the top so I would not have to page down to see it.

    I'm hooked on the "same" game with the marbles.

    I'd be fine with the new features and even their placement IF I could put my personal server at the top. I don't like having to scroll down to the next page for the thing I access the most.

    I'd settle for that. I'll never use any of the new features, but if I could float them below the features I want, such as the programs running on my own servers, that'll be just fine with me.

    Well, I was just playing with it, and it seems it "remembers" where you were in the menu, like the Now Playing list does. So there were no extra clicks to get to my server. Like other TiVo menus, I don't care for the excessive clutter in the interface, but at least it's not completely intrusive.

    That said, I did find one of the features I enjoy - the weather forcast. That one impressed a lot of friends today, LOL. It's perfect for me, as I don't need super detailed info (I am one of those people that generally just looks outside, LOL) but it's nice to know when snow is coming/etc.

    Question: I have 3 TiVos, and the new Yahoo "services" appear on one and not on the others. We didn't do anything to get them on the one machine. If I want them on the others (not sure if I do or don't), do I "sign up" as mentioned above? Why would I have gotten them on one machine only?

    Sounds like luck of the draw. We have two TiVos and they're rarely updated within a week of each other.

    Is there any update on this? I just discovered all those Yahoo! links and I'd rather just see galleon and the apps I wrote! Either turn it off or at least alphabetize it! Maybe a thumbs down (or 3) to move it to the bottom?
