Is there a bar that can be displayed to show where a person is in the show like Tivo has?

currently no. but it is an often debated feature in the forums. rumor has it that the next version of the software 5.0 will include this function. No date as to when it will be released though.

If you hit display while watching a recorded show, you will see the time elapsed in the upper right-hand corner.

Gee, I hope a status bar is not forced on us. I haven't seen the Tivo status bar, but if it appears when you fast forward, or skip ahead, that would ruin the surprise of whatever show I'm watching.....


i.e. I have found my favorite shows to be more entertaining now that I have no idea how close I am to the end. Before ReplayTV, I'd be watching some hour long show, glance at the VCR clock, and realize that this episode concludes in X minutes. That made it far easier to predict the end, or determine if it's a two part episode. Now that I have to press Display to see how much time is left in the show, I can enjoy my program more without the knowledge that they will wrap up the whole thing in 10 minutes.

I wish I had your willpower.


I must hit the display button about 4 times during the course of a 1 hour show.

Wouldn't an option for a status bar be good?

Oh you were being sarcastic


I don't know if a pony would be a good thing though .. who's gonna clean the mess up .. certainly not me!!! :)

Any mention of a 'status bar ' in this forum will get you tons of sarcastic

remarks. *Do a search for the many reasons why. ;)

Hmmm, I thought this was a troll post but I do think that Dan was asking a real question and I think that he got a good answer from Ico-Jones. Thanks Ico, for doing the right thing. If I had gotten here when you did I probably would have been rude.


Bad honus, no treat.


Also, where is this rumor of a status bar in 5.0? I've heard no such rumor (though I've seen a few comments made in jest).

OMG!!! I created a monster. You guys/gals get serious here don't you.


Yes, I was asking a real question. Thanks Ico for the display answer.

I love the status bar in TIVO. I miss it AND hope they add it to 5.0 or what ever version comes out. It sucks without it.

I don't understand this sentence. Do you mean "I must have" ? ;)
