I searched (even used Google to search this site) and didn't see any specific mention of this. If it HAS been, please point me in the direction of that thread -- thanks.

I'm sure many have noticed that the TivoHD has a default ugly gray screen when changing channels and loading data. Well, on the other Tivos, when I connected to Tivo Desktop to stream my music (just for relaxing or background noise when I go to bed) the screen was black as the music played.

Now it's this hideous gray, which apart from being much brighter than black and making it harder to fall asleep to, doesn't even dim out over time to kind of soften the effect of its brightness.

Slowish menus I can deal with, but is this something wrong with my unit or just software that hasn't been (or there is no plan to) updated yet?

Nothing wrong with the unit. Go to Settings, Video, Letterbox Color and change that from grey to black. You should get a black screen when playing music, as well as when changing channels and loading data. Worked for me.

Thanks, I'll try that. Weird tho, the ACTUAL letter boxing I get on non-HD channels is black. whys this unit come default to gray? Looks pretty ugly, especially with the shinier new UI.

*edit*, worked perfectly. Thanks man :up:
