    I know what you're thinking--since there was room for a show in the NP List, there has to be room for it in the RD Folder. But there is a weird algorithm in the delete process that can cause a problem.

    It clears the RD Folder by date recorded, not deleted. So if you delete a very old recording, it is possible it will bypass the RD Folder and just *poof*.
    Just tried it (living dangerously, ain't I? :eek:). It asks for confirmation. This makes it a very handy feature, with basically no downside. :up:

    Can you delete the entire Suggestions folder in one shot?

    How about the Recently Deleted folder? Lots of people ask about being able to do that, although I've never really felt the need.

    Got the upgrade on the HD this morning but not the S3 yet. The update killed my HD. My TV wouldn't display anything. I did a hard reboot by pulling the plug and I got the Tivo screen "Please wait screen" but never got to the intro or anything else. Nada. Came back later tonight (after work) and pulled the plug again and checked all the cable connections (external drive, USB, HDMI) rebooted again and it came up. Go figure.

    Reread my original post:

    So as an example, one station I receive has 9.1 in 1080i and 9.2 in 480i. When I switch from 9.1 to 9.2 the banner for 9.2 reports the resolution as 1080i; when I change back to 9.1 the banner for 9.1 reports the resolution as 480i.

    Also, my PSIP complaint - if a station has PSIP data wrong (e.g. a VPID of 0 or an incorrect VPID), the S3 will show proper signal strength but only a grey screen.

    All my other ATSC receivers assume a "baseline" VPID if the PSIP data is bad or missing.

    Somebody has to ask -- is there in-the-clear QAM support in this upgrade? I am talking about the guide data for QAM ... It is almost 3 years now since I first asked about it :(

    Nope. And you aren't the only one to complain about :) However, you do have to confirm a folder deletion, so in theory, it should never be by accident.

    Not on my THD (with 9.4). Although the status bar is one hour in length, the green bar is only 1/2 hour in length. It just keeps shifting forward in the one-hour status bar, 1/2 hour length maintained at all times.

    Maybe you had a recording that just completed on that channel or something?

    Mine is definitely 1 full hour. Green bar covers the full scale, and I am able to rewind all the way back 1 hour.

    No, I have the full half hour green bar and it just keeps shifting to the right, maintaining the 1/2 hour length.

    jrm01 is correct. Wile the bar shows the current hour you are in, it is only filled in for a half an hour. I checked this morning.

    Too bad that (at least for most users) the buffer remains at 30 mins. as always. Had my hopes up!

    Here's a stupid question:

    I never record Suggestions, in part because I don't want TiVo to change tuners unexpectedly. I fully understand that recorded Suggestions don't use up any available space on TiVo's HDD. My question is, can a recorded Suggestion be kept for a designated time or even 'until I delete' using the same options that are available for all other recordings?

    Thanks for any info!

    Yes, you can go in and change how long it is kept for. This will effectively make it like any other recording you have.

    Looks like that, at least for now anyways. I think the real beef behind this update is SDV Tuning (also possibly some back end youtube stuff), which is S3/HD only. I wouldn't be surprised if some of the other smaller features (CC, Guide over recorded program) show up in a later update for the S2, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

    If you have 9.4 on your S3/HD and 9.3 on your S2, have you been able to transfer SD shows between them? I know in the past all the versions had to be the same to do the transfers.

    (I've got 1 HD, 1 S3, and 2 S2s...)

    if you hit Info again it will show the correct resolution. I noticed this on my s3 HD and if I click info after I am on the new channel it fixes and reports the correct resolution.
