You cannot set a particular start time. You have to use the FFWD and TAB to move forward quickly to where you want to be.

The option is not available on the new SkyQ boxes either.

What!! No functional backwards compatibility.

Wait a minute - you could do this on V+ but not on TiVo.

I missed this when I replaced my V+ with Tivo but I have recently discovered that if you connect the Tivo to your LAN, the TV ANywhere app on the iPad becomes a (very expensive) remote control, but rather helpfully includes a progress bar at the bottom of the screen that you can drag along to where you want it to play (similar to youtube).  Very useful, and quicker than the FF buttons that I was having to use.


Just another VM user trying to help, so no guarantees that my advice will work .
If my suggestion is helpful, please mark it as helpful; it may help others. Just want to say "Thanks"? That's the Kudos button.

Good call, @Argy, and in addition the TV Anywhere app 'remembers' your Guide setting of Favourites, if you so wish.

Shame it doesn't reflect your default series link settings.
