    Yep, I'm having this problem with 11C, too. Turn on the TV, no audio, change the channel have audio on new channel, change channel back and have audio on channel was on when powered on the TV. Very annoying.

    Answering my own question...restarting the system made the sluggishness go away, as far as I can tell.

    Saw the ads for the first time last night. I'm not networked, and they're still there. Has anyone else noticed some commercials (if you actually watch one), have the ads as well? I forgot to fast forward last night and an Esurance commercial came on and in the top right was a window that was Esurance sponsored with a "Press Thumbs-up" for more info.

    Or is this the same thing everyone has been talking about (i.e. the pause ad)?

    The thumbs-up ads have been around for a while now. If you fast forwarded you most likely would have seen a billboard ad, which has also been around for a while.

    The "pause menu" and the ads it contains is what is new in 11.0c.

    I have seen this bug once before (a few months ago). I don't have a tuning adapter. A reboot fixed it.

    Haven't ever seen one of those billboard ads overlayed while fast forwarding through commercial breaks (but then, I almost always scoot through breaks with 30-second-skips).

    Is there a link somewhere that shows what a billboard ad looks like? I don't believe I've ever seen one. Is it a market thing maybe where not everyone would see them?

    Thanks for the link. Wow, I've never seen one of those (thankfully). I have seen the little 'thumbs up' icon which is actually usefull if you want to record the show they are talking about, but never one with anything linked below it nor an ad in the middle of the screen.

    So for those who get them, the banner ads only show up when FF-ing, or when... ?

    It only displays during FF or rewind. This was done since it's harder to miss during ff/rew than the thumbs up ads.

    The banner ads used to make a "ding" sound when they were displayed, but I haven't heard it do that for a while now so TiVo must have taken that out.

    This is a pre-existing feature. I don't remember what software was out at the time, but during the 2009 Super Bowl, I "double recorded" the same channel so that I wouldn't miss The Office.

    *sigh* does anyone realize that DVRs such as TiVo are responsible for marketers trying to find ways of getting their message out? I mean we can skip thru ads with ease. In the past I've seen some annoyingly blatant attempts at product placement. It's no surprise that we now maybe spotting ads. Hopefully TiVo will find some middle ground that will satisfy both it's customers and sponsors.

    Just saw the commercial listing last night when I paused a program. I have to admit - it is irritating.......

    Tivo really needs to overhaul. Add real HD menus - update them in an exciting way and refresh the company. Add native support for the streaming stuff instead of resorting to Java or whatever they're doing making each add-on have its own seperate screen and feel. Moxi has no ads and no monthly service. It's not there yet, but I think within 2009 Moxi will really gain steam.

    Moxi will never get there until it supports ota and that's not going to happen any time soon.

    I don't know anyone who doesn't have cable of some sort. I don't think as high a percentage of people solely use OTA as you think. And that number will only go up as the years go by, for cable of some sort. Especially if you're investing in a box like Moxi.

    All I know is what I just read on it an hour ago, I'm just saying Tivo needs to step it up and get with 2009.

    They support a third, OTA-only tuner plugged into its USB port.

    oddly enough - Moxi is starting to get knocked in actual hands on reviews for its unintuitive screen navigation and having too much on the main screen etc..
    Java does not make things different - partnering with different companies makes things different. So Netflix will not look like Amazon - just the way it is.
    TiVo has a no monthly fee option of lifetime and a reatil Tivo HD and lifetime is 700$ for a first time TiVo buyer. you do not get 250Gig of hard drive but an expander will take care of that.

    PS - a device with no installed base will not have ads by default, who would want to put ads on it. TiVo barely has enough subs to attract advertising attention.

    I like TiVo having a competitor but Digeo better have a cash pile that will last them through 2010 at the least

    I don't think that's quite what he meant.

    Amazon and Netflix certainly want their services distinguished, but that doesn't mean they need to function like completely separate applications.
