By default, the video you were watching when you entered the Home screen continues to play
in the background. Similarly, on most other TiVo menu screens, a video window located in the
upper right corner plays the current video as well.
  • To watch the video in full screen, press the Back button on your remote control.
  • You can choose how to display a video on the Home screen, or choose to turn it off completely. Just select Menu > User Preferences > Video Window & Background.
  • To turn video off on all screens, set Display Video to No.
  • To continue to display video, set Display Video to yes. You can then choose how to display it on the Home screen by modifying the Video on HOME setting:
  • Full screen (background): The currently-playing video is shown as a full-screen video inthe background of the Home screen.
  • Video window: The currently-playing video is shown in the top-right corner of the Homescreen.

See below on where to find your current RSSI level:

  1. Open the Main Menu
  2. Select Device Settings
  3. Select Network & Internet
  4. Check the RSSI level for the wireless network the set top box is connected to
