Had vm install new stuff to my house and one of the boxes was the new tivo box (replacing the v+) I wouldn't have chosen it but it made the contract over 10 quid cheaper a month than the standard box so went for it.
Anyways after a week of using it I'm struggling massively to find out what I'm doing wrong as it never seems to just "work".
My mum is a technophobe and only just got the hang of v+ with vm on demand (loved it in the end),so getting her to adjust is slow going. It seems she manages to create espress series links when browsing channels (a lot of the time my niece is down so a lot of cartoons!) as programs have just finished within that time slow but isn't clear, ok that happens and it's very different to v+, how do I add a pin requirement for adding series links so she knows to exit it and move on to the next listing to change to that channel?
It's stupid, she and my sister managed to setup links to 2 kids shows (one was on two channels at the same time and one on another so was recording 3 channels). Now I don't mind this but it seems tivo can't assume the very basics, we paused the f1 racing on bbc1,we had work to do so went back to it 30 mins later only to see it on a kids show, it changed channel even though we paused it!
Why does tivo assume recording have priority over a paused channel!? It's done this three times now (footy and other sports). All because it wanted to record these express links.
Is there a way to make pause the top priority?.
Next thing, it's not overly fast which is a shame, it's always on and making a loud hdd whiring, even though nothings recording and we really don't want it to be precaching the channel we are on as we haven't paused it. Is there a way to turn the hdd off I. E stop it using it while we don't need it?
And another point, why do we have the terrible flipping Internet version of bbci player? It takes yonks to load and you can fast forward and if you press either fast forward or dpad more than once without a second pause it begins skipping masses of time or you can skip at 1min intervals, pathetic...my v box in the next room is better! Am I being stupid here with the BBC on demand?
And finally, why is the box always on predicted search? If I put in formula 1 I'd rather hit enter that it search the whole listing for fo, it lags like mad and I'd like to disable it if possible?
Am I just being retarded and these are easily changeable but I've missed it in the manual? It's annoying as I'm told this is meant to be the best thing since sliced bread and I'm struggling to just watch the shows I want to watch as it's being to clever for its own good compared to the v+ boxes I've used.
Any helps appreciated as I'm going g mad with this(also sorry for poor spelling and grammar, in phone.. Takes ages haha)
