Re: Remind

This has been discussed ad nauseam before.

All tuners on TiVo boxes are used for recording and the only way to provide a reminder is by reserving a tuner by setting it to record.

If you are in front of the TV when the reminder is issued, you can decline the recording. If you're not there, isn't it better to have it recorded so you don't miss anything?

Re: Remind

I was looking for the same functionality, and ok, I can live with record and remind with the option to cancel the recording. I've got plenty of space on my box if I miss the prompt, since it's not recording any suggestions... whole other story...

but here's the thing. I'm on my iPad and thought I know, I'll set a record and remind for my old TiVo upstairs to watch that new fake Dr thing on BBC. Then when I've done feeding cats, brushing pegs, I can wander up and if I'm idly filling time listening to some radio thing over the TiVo and don't notice the time, it'll flag up.  

But I can't set to record and remind using the tv anywhere app, only record. So how do I make that happen, or something like it, if I'm not sitting in front of it when I remember to remind myself. Or am I missing something..

and btw the forum interface is truly rubbish if you want to ask more than a tweet)

Re: Remind

You are correct that you can't set a Record & Remind from the TV Anywhere app but why would you want to, given that you are not too far away from the TiVo or V6 that you want reminded on?

Yes, it would be great to have it but no real inconvenience.
