    Stephen Colbert "TiVo'ed" Jimmy Fallon in one of his opening sketches on the premier of the new Late Show with Stephen Colbert:

    He wasn't using a peanut remote though. ;)

    It's an MSO TiVo, probably RCN.

    How can you tell? My Premiere shows a programming grid similar to that sometimes (I only get there by accident...).

    You get that TiVo Mini Guide when you press Select on LiveTV.

    But, in the TiVo Mini Guide, the TiVo Record Icon is a Red open Circle, in front of the program Title.

    Not a solid Red dot after the program Title.
    The selection bar is also solid yellow, not a yellow outline.

    So this must be some sort of mock-up, unless the MSO TiVos have a different UI.

    Yeah, that and look at the fonts too. They don't look "retail TiVo-ish" to me.

    Yeah, Jimmy Falcon can't push the Mini Guide down from his end with his hands on a stock TiVo (I saw the bit when it aired). So it's probably some kind of a mockup.

    Could it be a DirecTiVo?

    Definitely not. The guides look like the old series 3 ones on DTV.

    I didn't expect this TiVo-spotting to generate so much discussion. :rolleyes:

    It was definitely "faked" but the graphics looked like someone did take the current Mini guide from the Roamio and modify it a bit (i.e., the filled in red circle). The sound effects and animation were obviously being overlayed manually as Colbert pretended to use the remote.
