Besides those pause ad complaints?


And I don't recall this major annoyance being mentioned here:


In the find shows screen, when you start the search, there is a display of the search progress in the top 1/3rd of the screen. But as soon as there is a hit, the display is covered up by the found show's description and you no longer see the progress. So one has no way of knowing whether the search is finished or still continuing.


Now THAT"S ANNOYING!

Unless you push the lefty-arrow to make the description disappear, but yeah, it annoys the bejeebers out of me.

yeah a few times recently people have been shocked at my lack of familiarity with current commercials...someone kept telling me how funny the ads for The Tick were, finally saw one the other day when I was watching Undeclared and had some (user-caused) remote control problems

Absolutely. Coupled with the fact that there is significant slowdown in the machine/OS when trying to switch show displays or move back to create theme so I can see the search progress.

But unless your using your show search feature as a way to check to see if your unit got the CG data from the last nightly dial-in, why would you want to see the search progress?. I mean it's just the +7day count read-out. And if you are using it to verify the fullness of your CG then just do as toots says and use your left "

Thanks Toots for the tip, works just right! How did you ever figure that one out?


As to wanting to see the progress? When I know I'm going to have a conflict I like to check and see which of the programs can be deferred. The first hit is usually the one at the conflicting time which is of no interest, so I want to know the progress of the search and not sit there as a dummy trying to figure out whether the search is over and no repeats were found. Now thanks to Toots I can search efficiently.
