Re: Can I set reminders

Hi as nodrogd has stated, it will also record but if you have set reminders I presume you are in & watching, it's very easy to just cancel the recording, once the reminder has kicked in, and changed the channel for you. Regards Micky

Re: Can I set reminders

With the TiVO firmware, no.

Virgins previous boxes had a tuner dedicated to Live TV with another 2 tuners available for recording, so the Live TV tuner could be used for reminders. From the outset it was decided that all tuners on the TiVO would have recording ability to accomodate features like automatic recording against preferences.

Then what happens when a reminder is set & all the tuners are occupied with recordings? The only workaround was therefore to set a "Record Reminder", & hence the programme is always recorded.
