Like someone said earlier, you have to wait for the spinning circle to load, and then press skip. Maybe adds 5 seconds?I'd think it interesting that since you've got it use and maybe mention your thoughts. I've never used TE4/21.* so I can't tell what to expect. Is it in fact a simple 'SKIP' to get to the 'DVR EVENT'! maybe express your displeasure in a CHAT where you'll be asked for the DVR ID etc, you'll be able to save the CHAT and that I'd say documents your displeasure. In a CHAT ENTRY I'd add the DVR ID, 21.* info etc.
How great a nuisance is it?
The real irritant is how much I spent to better avoid ads (and rental fees) only to have the company I gave that money to serve ads at me.
If I had known tivo was going to be an ad filled experience I wouldn't have even considered it. (I also have 'sponsored' items on the big list of shows you see when you push the tivo button. There aren't any now or I'd take a picture)
