thanks for the reply, DVDKingdom... but I don't think you seem to understand the problem.

The problem is the fact that the application has <no title>, that with each reboot, there is no placeholder left in the windows registry that tells it to hide the icon again when the computer reloads... thus, the *USELESS* system-tray TiVo icon returns back again.

It would be an absolutely brilliant idea to include an option in the TiVoDesktop application settings that will enable you to hide that system tray icon if you so choose... or at the very least, for the TiVo application programmers to put a name or tag on that icon so that we could make the "Hide inactive system tray icons" more permanent... instead of being annoyed by seeing it return again after each reboot (loosing it's previous settings).

Heck - if you want to run the TiVo desktop app, why not just select it from your START menu... and if you want to see it more often, why not make a desktop icon for it - or better yet, toss it in your Quick-Launch menu.... but please don't force me to always deal with this useless icon in my system tray - when all it really does is remind me that the System Service is running just fine (ex: Systems Services are those things that run on their own, in the background, without you ever having to deal with them - unless you choose to do so)

BJ411, thanks for the suggestion, but by doing that, you would disable PC-to-TiVo features such as Back-To-TiVo and "Music & Photos" features. I personally enjoy being able to listen to whatever mp3s are on my computer, in the front room's entertainment center or master-bedroom while entertaining or getting ready for work... rather than only being able to play them in the home-office/den room's computer speakers.

I switched to Galleon instead... by switching, it resolved the minor icon annoyance... and added several other cool features! http://galleon.tv/

greg_burns is correct. It does stay hidden for myself as well.

...UNLESS you are using Vista in which case you have to catch the icon in "TiVo Desktop: Server Off" - and only then will it stay hidden after each reboot (I never have this problem in XP-MCE)
