Setting a reminder in TiVo

Hi, can anyone tell me how to set a reminder for a t.v. programme in TiVo?  I don't want to record it, just want a reminder to pop up and tell me it's time to change channels to view the show.

Thanks

Christine

Re: Setting a reminder in TiVo

To set a reminder you have no choice but to record the programme. The V+HD boxes had a dedicated tuner for watching Live TV, & this tuner was always available to switch your viewing when you set a reminder. The TiVO can record on all three tuners, so the only way to make sure a tuner is available at the time a reminder is set is by setting a recording.

thanks, I couldn't find a way but thought it was just me.. I've just switched from the old V+HD box and used to use the reminder option quite a lot.  Think Virgin doing away with this is an oversight.

Re: Setting a reminder in TiVo

It is not really an oversite as you can't use the tuner for another channel if you are watching the programme anyway.

And if you happen to be out of the room when the programme remind pops up - it records anything you may have missed.
