    What I am finding is if the previous PC->TiVo content was pulled with metadata they show-up as a folder and play fine.

    If the content was pulled to the TiVo w/o metadata there is no folder and they don't play. But if you delete them and recover them, you can play them once. also if you randomly scroll though the My Shows list they occasionally do show a folder and will be playable. The New UI appears to be folder/group dependent, even single recordings appear as a folder.

    Is the bug still there where all/my/favorites channel guide selection on the host box limits the connected Minis no matter what is selected on the Mini's guide?

    You were right. Here's what I did, maybe it'll help others with Mini problems:

    1) pull the Mini's power
    2) pull the Mini's ethernet connection
    3) wait a bit...just a minute or three
    4) apply the Mini's power
    5) after it restarts you'll get TiVo Central with a "no network" error message
    6) plug in your ethernet connection
    7) wait 15 to 30 seconds for the "no network" error to go way
    8) go to Live TV


    UPDATE: Live TV only played for a brief period. Now it's back in the loop. Ugh.

    What if you enter it while on Live TV? Does the clock show? Does it go away if you change the channel or go into the menus and back to Live?

    Most of these don't seem to be working, but 30 second skip is now the button default and doesn't need the code. Someone else is reporting that clock works but it doesn't stick.

    hitting the skip button, jumps 30 seconds, not scan 30 seconds. If that is what you meant?

    What about slip? Some of us prefer that.

    Yes. Thank you. I loathe the skip. Harder to see where you are and to control.

    Yes if you enter it during live tv the clock seems to stay put, but only on live TV, not on recordings.
    Watch a show, and clock goes away.

    Another behavior change is that every show in My Shows is treated as a folder. So if you select a single recording, it opens into a folder with only 1 item in it rather than going directly to the Play screen. Extra unnecessary click.

    Then after you watch and delete the episode it goes to an empty folder rather than back to My Shows.

    edit, no now I don't see clock after going to a few recordings.... it's fickle and unusable but at least it looks like it's something they can fix

    Surprisingly you can't thumb up/down a show you're watching. You'd think that wouldn't be something they'd omit.

    Mission...
    How about Select-Play-Select-Pause-Select (quick clear play bar). When enabled and you use trick play (e.g. 30 sec skip) does the play bar clear quickly or hang around for several seconds?

    Quick play bar clear doesn't work. I've been trying.

    Given how much they have neutered suggestions other than recording them (no lists, no management of thumbs), I’m even surprised they still support thumbs at all.

    Basically, that is two buttons they could give back on the remote and few would miss them.

    WHOA! Real nice, I was not a big fan of Margrets hydra video, but now that I have the real thing- this is excellent. it uses the screen real estate properly and everything looks lively and organized. A++ good work TiVo!!
