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.
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).
