So did I just cross paths with the worst saleman in the world?

Discuss

Re: General TiVo Discussion Part 3

Just got it installed today. Not had much time to play about with it, but impressions so far. Love the display of genre of tv/film that I like and then it gives you what's available all over tv, on demand etc, love that it allows you to plan future new episodes of programmes that's new series ain't on yet. Not keen on the fact that you have to revisit a current series link and amend it to only record new episodes. Two week guide is a plus. Tried you tube, great but haven't worked out how to stop a video I'm watching without coming out of it all together. Will mess about later. So far pretty impressed.

I've not got to the point of completely trusting the 'new' setting, so for nearly all* my shows I use new & reruns.

If the 'new' tag gets left of the EPG data, the show won't record. The downside is that by using new & reruns, you may have to delete some shows that it's recorded that you've already seen.

In fairness, I think the EPG has got a lot better than it was a year ago when I first got Tivo, and there's not as much risk of a new episode not recording these days as there used to be, but I err on the cautious side.

* If I'm not that fussed if I do miss a new episode, then I will use 'new'. For example Law and Order SVU on Universal, where there isn't an ongoing storyline, so it's not a biggie if you miss one episode, and to not use new would give you lots of deleting of old episodes.

Instead of Express series link, use Explore this show->Get a series link->Options.

Cheers, that was kind.



Not keen on it recording stuff it thinks I might like. Well had a play, not the amazing bit of kit imo that some have enthused over but some very good things about it. Reminders will be a big miss, but all in all a improvement but not a massive improvement on my HD box. Certainly wouldn't have paid top dollar for it.

You can turn it off if you want. I leave it on and just ignore it because it deletes these shows automatically if space is needed. As you use tivo more, the suggestions will be more to your likeing, especially if you use the thumbs up and down button.

Re: General TiVo Discussion Part 3

The thing I don't quite understand with having TiVo for 4 months now is when you go into screens like planned recordings you lose the recommendation bar + live TV window, is that likely be rectified in the next code update?

Wouldn't have thought so. Some people don't want it there at all. (Not me, btw. I don't have a problem with it!) It's not needed all the time.
