A few people (allegedly) on the tivo community forum and over at pvrblog have noted overlayed “banner” ads when fast forwarding their TiVo’s
Although it may have just been a test run of the banner ad:
This is an update since I suggested the original post: about an hour after I sent in the post, the ads on my Tivo stopped. I haven’t been able to get them to reappear since so I could snap a picture. This must have been another test of some sort.
Although this won’t stop me from pausing/fast forwarding later tonight to see what’s doing on my series 2 TiVo.
adrants coverage | another tivo community thread looks like it even accidently displays during non-commercial content! Hopefully that’s a bug (hopefully the whole thing is a bug) Link to official tivo customer support page
