The only time I have experienced Tivo taking too long to change channels is if the black Format button on the front has been bumped onto Hybrid




A time-poor geek is hardly a geek at all

Its one of the direction arrows to get program info back. Use up and down channels to change more quickly, or press enter after you have entered a number. It is the same with all freeview tuners.

hi, no its not what i mean,before i used those remote short cuts when i changed channel it only took a sec or two to change with the channel information already at the top of the screen and the banner bar at the bottom,there was no need to use the direction arrows to get program info back!i only ever used the up and down channels to change the channels,this is the short cut that i used on my remote to stuff my tivo up (its to make the progress bar fade out faster)SELECT-PLAY-SELECT-PAUSE-SELECT,i have two tivo's and both now have this problem so its gotta have something to do with those shortcuts,

Check your line/signal quality? Perhaps your signal is weak/fringe ?

Yes, do a "Clear and Delete All" from the settings menu. You will loose all your season's passes and viewing preferences, but at least the banner settings will be reset.
