VOD Ads When Turning On

Last night on one box and then again this morning on another I am getting some VOD page display when I turn things on. Anyone else? This constant pushing of VOD is getting way too intrusive.

Do you have pop ups disabled on your STB?

I only get the ads on Fridays when trying to access the guide or any menu.

Yes, they are disabled.

I'll try to get a picture. It just happened again but when I tried to turn off and on again it didn't pop-up. So, twice on this box today alone but it's not every time I turn on.

They are going to show every Friday, because of the Friday Movie Night Specials. You can turn them off in the menu by disabling pop up alerts.

I found a new Show Recommendations (or something like that)option in the Setup menus. I disabled it. I think this may be the pertinent setting.

Again, this is not pop-up alerts. This is under Promotions and these are coming up on other days (I posted on Thursday).

In that photo above it tells you to go to Menu | Settings | Television | Promotions.

There is no setting like that they showed. You have to turn off Pop Ups and Interactive TV

I guess we're on different software versions then. I have tried to upload another photo but it's not working right now. I'll try again shortly.

Here ya go...




Again, this is separate from Pop-ups. That is still another menu option and I've had that off for weeks.

This menu item is not present in Southern California VHO3.

There was a message on the box today that they were going to upgrade the menus, maybe that option is part of the new menu?

I just saw the message, thanks for the heads up. It's not here in VHO3 yet. I can't wait to see what this change breaks!

I am in Tampa, we have not received the new vod update here. so the pop-up block thing still works for everyone who hasn't received the new update.

So that means they changed the way to prevent the VOD popups with the new update. No one will know that.
