    Sorry if this has been posted: my searching led to lots of stuff about the diagnostic screen from TIVo central, but that's not what this is about.

    I suddenly have this unwanted line of diagnostic output on my screen. An example looks like this: "Mode: COMPLETED || Recording: 3422193 || Output's Source: 720x480@29.970fbps/4:3". I think I may have turned this on inadvertently while trying to enable 30-second skip.

    That might someday be useful, but in general I don't want it up there. How do I get rid of it?

    Somehow you (presumably) managed to accidentally press:

    Select -> Play -> Select -> Instant Reply -> Select

    to turn that on. Same sequence turns it off, do it while watching a recorded program. Then do something that refreshes the overlay, like hitting Play a few times to toggle the green bar. And it should be gone.

    That did it. Thank you very much! Definitely something I hit while trying to enable the 30-second skip, then.
