Ah yes, start the new year off with the threat of a class action lawsuit (the usual whine of losers world wide).ddrultramix said:How rude to get adds put on our menu of Tivo! Is it in the fine print some where that Tivo says they can do this? If not, its court time.

I would call it "non-intrusive" because I can ignore them if I want. Tivo does not force me to watch them. Most of the time, lately, I have not bothered with any of them. They used to be better, but now, not much so.audiocrawford said:Non-intrusive?
I wouldn't exactly call appearing and disapearing ads in different places in the main menu of a consumer entertainment product "non-intrusive".
The one about "riding in the car, car"...Nissan, I think? I enjoyed that one.BigHat said:I actually have watched the car ads and have enjoyed them.
We just don't think it's that big of a deal. I'll go along with it as long as it keeps Tivo in Business. and like the guys said "Just don't read them". The problem with our country is everyone is too lazy to work so they find a way to sue.ddrultramix said:Let's put it this way. It's nice to have ads on my Tivo or It's nice not to have ads on my Tivo. So you guys want these ads. I'm disapointed and ashamed of your silliness. The ad industry has gotten to you.
My only real beef is that they rotate position. If there was always one in the middle, and always one at the end, it's much easier to deal with. Unfortunately, sometimes there is only one in the middle, or vice versa, and very occasionally none at all. It's just consistency for me - I like to know where the UI is going to be when I'm going for it. Same with my PC - those windows features that hide "unused" links in menus drive me batty. I just like to know what the menu is going to look like before it loads.timr_42 said:I would call it "non-intrusive" because I can ignore them if I want. Tivo does not force me to watch them.

I don't think many would disagree with this point, but keep in mind advertisements typically keep costs down for the consumer.ddrultramix said:Everyone, we all know it. It's just nice to have NO ads at all.
