    My Tivo must have updated overnight. Lost 30 second skip and clock which I was able to put both back. I can not get the Thumbs Down, Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down, 7, 8 to work in the now playing list. I miss having the show discriptions display without having to select each individual episode or show.

    Was this feature eliminated with the latest update?

    I don't have a TiVo that can use that particular code, but i seem to remember that it is TU TD TU 7 8. But, I could be wrong. :)

    It doesn't matter which one it was, the hack was eliminated in 6.3e.

    I probably would have seen that if I had the interest to read the 6.3e threads. :)

    Revert back to 6.2? That's about the only option.

    DRAT! I just noticed this. GRRRR.. Why did it have to be taken out? I know it is only one extra click per show to get the episode information, but dang. :(

    I can't find the TiVoPony post where he talked about why this went away from the standalone box.

    Seems like it was a victim of a change in the development platform or middleware they used.

    Perhaps we could push TiVo to get it back in all platforms. I can't imagine anyone not liking it. I find it very valuable on the now playing list but I wish the detail preview was on more screens and could display details of seasonpasses, wishlists, etc.

    I just got the 6.3e patch, and I can't seem to get my 30 second skip back. Is it still SELECT-PLAY-SELECT-3-0-SELECT?. I get buzzes when I type in the 3 and 0..

    I'm going to miss that feature more than anything else...

    Ignore the bongs when entering the 3 and 0. Although it can entered while watching live TV, it works better while watching a recording.

    Slow-0-Record-Up and Select-Play-Select-3-0-Select restored nicely on my SAT-T60 after this week's reboot, fwiw.

    What does "Slow-0-Record-Up" do?

    I believe that this command will sort the Now Playing list by name.

    No code needed for that. It is already available by pressing Enter at the Now Playing List. You can then sort by date or alphabetically.

    That code is still needed for series 1 DirecTV TiVos like the T60.

    I was so disappointed today when I finally made a phone call on both my units (after about 300 days). When I saw that 6.3e was on my HDVR2, the first thing I thought of was, "uh oh, I betcha that TU, TD, TU, 7, 8 is not gonna work."

    Oh, woe is me.

    Lousy... I should've never made that phone call. What was I thinking?
