    The question I have…Is this crap taking up room on my hard drive? I bought my Tivos to get away from commercials and they’re touting it as a a special feature. I pay every month for the channel guide, they need to let us opt out of the commercials.

    All TiVo’s have a small part of the hard drive reserved for TiVo’s use. This is outside of the advertised capacity so it never interferes with user recordings. This space is used for video in Showcases, promos, etc.

    Other applications, like this Lexus one, are using Home Media Engine and it is server driven. The TiVo is only a display client, so it isn’t using any space on the TiVo. Same way the Yahoo applications work.

    Is there a way I can re-order the menu? I don’t even need to take things like “design your own lexus” off, but I want to put the stuff I use on the top so I don’t have to page down to find it. Specifically I want to take Live365 and Podcaster and move them to the top, the rest can stay ordered as it is.

    Unfortunately, no. That’s something a number of people have wished for.
