Channel change

With my old V+ box I could set it to change to a certain channel ie. when my tv switched on in the morning it would automatically turn on to the news channel I’d pre set the evening before .. I can’t seem to find this function on my TiVo box ? Am I correct in thinking this isn’t an option anymore??

Re: Channel change

This can be done very easily on TiVo or V6 by leaving it on the channel you want in the morning. This, of course, also worked for V+.

Re: Channel change

I’m not rocket engineer but I knew that .. what I’m saying is you could make the V+ box change channel at the start of a show by pre setting it, that way when you watch a different show at night and fall asleep you you don’t wake to a blank screen when the tv turns itself back on .

Re: Channel change

Neither am I but the referenced thread tells you how to do it in V6 and why it has to work that way on boxes running TiVo software.

Re: Channel change

So the only way to do it is to let the show record simultaneously if I don’t catch the reminder before the channel changes? And I guess just cancel the recording and delete when my TV set turns on
