I have an LG UF770 that runs webOS. I didn't mean that the TiVo is preventing me from using non-TV features on the UF770. What i meant to say is that because the UF770 is not managing the channels directly, i can't use the integrated Live TV app.
The TiVo is incredibly slow. My overall TV viewing experience would be much better if i wouldn't have to wait ages for the thing to turn on. The lag in response for any input is frustrating. Not to mention that in order to control it i either have to use the TiVo remote instead of the UF770 remote (or bring up the virtual remote on the UF770 which means i have to do an extra action every time i want to send input to the TiVo).
Long story short, i don't want to manage two devices when i could manage only one, the better performing one, and benefit from all the smart features it has to offer. It's supposed to be a seamless experience.
I hope you understand the general idea without having to go into detail about what features i'm missing on.
