I don't know how wide spread the problem is, but it is reported
to have affected several users of the Comcast HD recorder.

It seems there's an easy fix:

Don't watch American Idol. :-)

That said, it's nice that TiVo and MythTV lack this misfeature.

How do you Tivo rumpswabs like your popup ads?????

http://www.engadget.com/entry/1234000100038148/

I'm not paying $13 a month to be a beta tester, TiVo. I'm not happy
about seeing TiVo-sponsored ads at all, and then to screw it up like
this is ridiculous. (This on top of all their other software problems
lately too.)


That Tivo sure is "cutting edge"
