Programme Planner

Will we ever get a simple programme planner like previous Virginmedia and NTL boxes had? Or has the "upgrade" to tivo spoiled that facility for subscribers?

Re: Programme Planner

You could actually do what the OP wants to do but it's not actually using the full power of TiVo to record and watch programs at your convenience.

You would use the guide to choose and Record and Remind each program you wanted to watch. TiVo would turn the channel over for you at the appropriate time. Ignore the fact that TiVo records each program as well. It will manage its storage and delete each program as it needs space.

There is the added benefit that TiVo has recorded if you are not actually in front of the TV in real time.

Re: Programme Planner

I, personally, find it easy to program the TiVo.

What is it that you find difficult and what would you like it to be like?

Re: Programme Planner

I'm not clear what answer you want if you can't explain why the TiVo planner is too difficult for you and what you expect in a simple(r) one.

Re: Programme Planner

go to the guide select a program you want and press record, I'm pretty sure it can't get much simpler

I think the problem lies with what you mean as a "Programme Planner". Myself and the other respondents would define this as the Guide.

What do you mean by it?

 

Nice to be able to post again, after their mistake (removed by the Censorship team).

Re: Programme Planner

As I mentioned previously the first post has all the clues but here goes, "Will we ever get a simple programme planner like previous Virginmedia and NTL boxes had?" Previous NTL boxes did not have the capability to record therefore  if we ever got back to a "simple programme planner" like NTL boxes had it would plan our viewing not recordings it's all rather self explanatory.
