|Record Every Episode of Your Favorite Shows |
The TiVo service keeps track of the latest TV schedule, and automatically records every episode of your favorite shows, even if the day or time they air changes. All you do is find the show you want by searching or browsing the TV listings, and then specify whether you want to record all episodes or just the new ones.
|Record Two Shows at Once |
TiVo DVRs have two tuners, so they can record two different TV shows at the same time. You can even play back a third show that you’ve already saved while two new shows are recording.
TiVo HD DVR and TiVo Series3 HD DVRs work with the following configurations:
Does NOT support:
|Control live or recorded shows |
TiVo DVRs can: Pause live or recorded shows (live TV can stay paused for 30 minutes), Rewind (3 different speeds), fast-forward (3 different speeds), instant replay, slow motion, frame forward, frame reverse, skip-to-tick (jump ahead or back in 15 minute increments in recorded shows), jump to the beginning of a show, the end of a show, or the point being broadcast live at that moment.
Search for shows
You can search for shows with a specific word in the title or episode description, like "House". You can search for shows in a particular category, like “Cooking” shows about "Chocolate", or "Football" programs with "Giants". You can even find every movie with Johnny Depp, or every movie directed by Steven Spielberg. If it is available on your television lineup, the TiVo service can find it and record it for you.
|Record by actor, director, or keyword |
Use a TiVo WishList search to find every show with your favorite actor, director, keyword, or sports team. Your TiVo DVR will save your search, and if you like, automatically record every new show that matches it.
|TiVo Suggestions |
TiVo Suggestions are personalized shows selected to match your preferences. Any time you watch a live TV or recorded show, or see something you like or don’t like in the Guide, you can rate that show by using the THUMBS UP or the THUMBS DOWN buttons on your remote control. When the TiVo DVR has empty space, it will automatically record shows that are liked by other people who like the same shows you do. This is an excellent way to discover new shows that may interest you. TiVo Suggestions never replace any shows you request, or prevent them from being recorded. Suggestions are always the first programs to be deleted when it’s time for one of your shows to record.
