I think that's called Quality Testing - not
No software can be or ever will be perfect, so I still buy the asset protection\didn't stress test network link theory.
The asset protection one I'd say was the most likely.
My Tivo lost its network connection again early this morning so I did some more digging and found that, although Wishlist results are accessible locally, Search and Browse are not.
Again, that's just weird because don't they all rely on the same meta-data?
The HD screens use network data, the SD screens use traditional tivo cached data.
Search/browse is a HD menu, wishlists are SD.
Another side effect of this is that extended episode data e.g. "Series 9 episode 3" (HD menus) is not accessible to wishlists (SD menus)
If it was in that data, we'd be able to set a wishlist for a particular series
e.g. the following should only record series 9 of CSI,
but actually doesn't work because the HD/SD datasets are different:
The first frame is from the HD menu, the rest SD
actually old S1 users can successfully do the above since altepg now has (S9ep3) in the description !
Okay. Thanks for the explanation mike. Interesting.
There not silly
Keep everything out of the consumers reach so it means theres less they can fiddle with and means without it connecting to their servers its just paper weight
It's probably not old news over there, but stateside Premiere owners (i.e., people with more money than me) have been discussing and complaining about this since it first came out.
Apparently loss of internet means having to shift back to the SD UI to get anything done.
I don't know if that means that stuff isn't stored locally, or if you just can't get to it without some kind of internet magic.
The UK version doesn't even allow you to totally switch to the SD UI for now playing screens / tivo central etc normally
...but since they've enabled USB keyboards, we can now can get to it by pressing the "secret" F11 key on an attached keyboard.
Really? Did not know that. May have to have a play
Had a play last night and got it to work; but only the once
As I recall, it doesn't work from the Home screen. F11 only takes you to the SD Home screen if you are not already in a Home screen.
