    Was it recording at the time? Because it always works for me!

    TiVo did not do two things they should have done:
    1) Allow use of the Vox microphone in the search box instead of this T9 stuff. Whatever you say into the mic would be searched with the list of results appearing on the screen when you let go of the microphone button. (Makes sense to me!)
    2) Include the new search method into the Wishlist search fields (whether it would be the T9 or my suggested Vox search).

    Yeah, both would be worthwhile additions, but the T9 mechanism is a good start. The glass is 1/3 full.

    I thought they could also have allowed the user to select one of the T9-generated text substrings as the basis for a Wishlist, the same as is allowed for the explicit strings entered on the Search box.

    Well I came back for a hot SECOND. This post is very amusing to me...

    Shall I go over the "rules" on this "problem"? I think not...

    I bet you thought I would. Believe me, I am tempted...but NAW...:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::D

    OK, Hint: (on TE3) Get out of the recording with the Live Button...It works sometimes that way...but don't be "near" the end (forget about on a Mini...that's a real crapshoot)!

    It does sound like someone is "trying"...Just like they tried to modify the Android App (they actually did get the resume point on that problem better!)

    HAPPY HOLIDAYS ALL!!! (color for you, JOE!)

    I can’t offer an opinion on what you perceive from each statement.

    So is this due to CEC or did I just not know this existed before? While I'm on another input, if I press play, it changes the input to the one my Tivo Roamio is connected to. It even starts playing if I had something pauses.

    Regardless of how it happened, I love it! With my Samsung TV, if I'm using my Chromecast, it takes like 10 presses of the input button to get to my Tivo input. Now it only takes 1 press (and 2 presses to get back to the chromecast), which is awesome. This makes watching football on both inputs and switching back and forth much easier than before.

    I am liking the continuous play ability for episodes that are in a folder. It is even nice to be able to just highlight a folder and select Play and have it play episodes in the folder. I am finding though that when the folder only has one episode that hitting the Play button does not always seem to work. Is anyone else noticing that?

    Thanks,
    Merg

    Yes I am seeing that too. I'm also noticing you have to press a button twice before it'll do the requested action

    Yes, and as yet I haven't figured out why certain shows work this way and others not. But I haven't spent much time on it either.

    I’ve seen it when returning to the shows list. From places like drilling into the episodes list. Or coming back from watching a show.

    Yeah, once you've gone into a folder you can't play cleanly from the folder list until you've exited the menu system altogether to live TV and started fresh.

    Ah, that makes sense (even if it shouldn't!) ... I'll give it a try tonight.

    Not just the play button, I'm finding I have to hit any button twice. Almost like the first press wakes the remote, and then it works after that.
