Netflix remote shortcut?

Still playing with Netflix and the updated TiVo software (that SuperHD is AWESOME!) but one question for you guys and gals - has anyone found a shortcut on the TiVo remote to jump straight to the Netflix screen? I can't find one. Failing that, a short cut to the Apps or Favourite Apps screen?
At the moment it's a fair few presses to launch (albeit quick to load after the first time). Browsing through the selections is a little tedious on the TiVo - Search capability is nice and prompt though.

You can also use either the TV Anywhere or regular Netflix app. A TV Anywhere search includes Netflix shows. The Netflix app has a little multiple screen icon near the top right and your TiVo should appear as an optional destination even when the app is not loaded.

What's the Super HD that you mention?

I'll post on this shortly. It seems to be available on the majority of movies and TV series I've looked at on Netflix but not all (UK TV series in particular don't appear to have it, but the newer US ones do).

Silly question I know but how do you exit a program and go back to the main netflix screen? I've tried the back button but it doesn't work. When watching a tv series this means you have to sit through the end credits to get to the next episode.

Press stop. Then a screen comes up and you can select Browse and go back to the Home screen

Jon when you say regular netflix app areyou referring to the app on the tivo box or an ios or android device?

Jon said...

Yeah, sorry Boycey, I wasn't very clear.

I meant you can select what you want to watch using the IOS or Android Netflix app then, within that app, choose the TiVo as the destination. This will cause the TiVo's Netflix app to load if it is not loaded already.

It removes the need to use the TiVo remote to either launch the app or select what you want to view.
