Is there a picture somewhere of what's supposed to show up on the Front Panel of the S3? I see a clock and when something is recording I see a red light to the left of the clock. But in another thread I saw someone mention being able to see what's recording...I don't see anything except the red dot....should there be something else there somewhere? Oh, and I also get Ready, Set, TiVo when I reset the unit. Anything else I'm missing?

if you don't see the program names, it means one of two things:

1) You are recording suggestions
2) The names are turned off under front panel options in settings.

I'm not recording suggestions I'm recording using season's pass. I don't have an option to turn names on/off in the DVR Front Displays menu....only options there are LED Lights (On) and Clock(Bright).

3) You're in Standby. (The lights still show up in Standby, but not the names.)
I have the clock on...that's off in Standby, right? Clock on but no names so I don't think I'm in standby mode. Don't know what else I might be missing besides the names. Again, is there a picture somewhere that shows the layout of the front display?

The front panel is simply a dot-matrix OLED. If it is blank, there is a likelyhood its cable came unplugged form the mainboard.

Thank you! That's exactly what I was looking for. My manual doesn't have Appendix A. Now that I look more closely at the manual, it's missing pages 118-130. :confused:

Looking at the front panel pic, looks like I'm getting everything except the Titles of the program being recorded. Guess I'll give TiVo support another call.

Thanks again for the help!
