  I do not like the new white color they put in replace of the yellow. If it's not broke, then why fix it????? Why did TiVo do this??? Usually companies make changes because of cost, but I don't see how this could be a change because of cost. Any answers??

Hi shellie0803,

 

The new color scheme brings TiVo BOLT’s more modern color look to Series 4, 5, and Mini.

it's not a more modern color look.  They removed color and it looks more plain and makes the font harder to read. Nothing modern about it.  If the management was smart they would have taken the amazing color theme from the Series 4, 5 and Mini to the BOLTs.  #TIVOUIFAIL

This new white color is HORRIBLE! The white is VERY hard on my eyes! Much harsher to look at and read. PLEASE change it back to the yellow color ASAP!!

Wow. Is that what they're calling it now? Modern?

 Modern you say? Really? Who told you that? Better yet - how has all of this alleged modernization been working out for you guys? Be honest, has the feedback been favorable? Probably not. I know because in the past, anytime I brought up TiVo to someone who already had TiVO, we would go on and on about all of it's positive aspects but now, when I run into anyone with one, the first thing that they mention is how TiVo has become a company that fixes things that aren't broke just to imitate other companies that frankly aren't as good. That instead of putting their money toward more detailed marketing (because amazingly, most people do not know the difference between a TiVo and an average DVR), TiVo instead elects to ruin their positives in the most annoying of ways. Yesterday at work, this woman and I started talking about TiVo with a non-TiVo user and the 1st thing we talked about was this "ugly new highlighting" thing. We practically said it at the same time!

 

So "modern" or not, I don't believe ANYONE ever complained about the look of TiVo so it would only make sense that your company stop focusing on things that weren't an issue and start focusing on better marketing.....and please add an option to choose the highlight color (in other words, please ask TiVo to FIX their mistake). We'd REALLY appreciate it.

 

Thank you,
