    Press Thumbs Up To Record

    Anyone know how this works on the DTivos? How does the DTivo know to display the 'Press Thumbs Up To Record' on certain show advertisements?

    Did anyone see the BMW commercial Saturday night that showed the Press Thumbs logo in the upper right corner? I wonder if that was just a glitch in the system, or if BMW found a way to replicate what DirecTV does for their advertisements. I hope it wasn't the latter. That would suck to be harassed even more by ads!!

    This has been used for ages for NBC TV shows. Tivo has been getting more folks on board with it lately. They send a signal down, probably in the vertical blanking field, and the Tivo displays the screen icon.
