Have a question, we have the answer.
As part of the upgrade, the Guide now shifts in blocks when arrowing up/down and left/right. For example, when arrowing down, the Guide currently displays Channels 1-8, the previous version would just add the next 1 channel, and now displays Channels 2-9. The new guide shifts an entire block of 8 channels and displays Channels 9-16. In addition, when arrowing right, the Guide shifts in 2-hour time blocks instead of 30 minutes at a time. Finally, if you continue watching the same channel during a show change, an Info bar will display and give you the information on the next show.
Press the TiVo button twice for quick access to My Shows.
Previously, folders were created only when there was more than 1 episode under the title in the My Shows list. With this upgrade, every Show/Movie title is a folder, and the number indicated to the right, is the number of episodes within that folder, to better organize your recordings.
The next episode will play automatically after the timer runs out. (The countdown clock timer length is set as 30 seconds ). Press BACK on the remote to exit this feature, at which point the delete episode overlay is displayed.
After watching more than one episode and then pressing BACK, you will be able to delete all episodes that were watched with 1 click.
Press OK/Select on the remote (while “play” is in the highlight), the episode will immediately begin playing
With this new TiVo upgrade, OnePass settings and recordings are not affected.
The background images can be turned off by accessing TiVo Home > Menu > Settings > User Preferences > Video Window & Background > Display Background Images > No. This quick and simple process will need to be completed on each individual piece of TiVo equipment in the home.
