    Before this was the fast way to schedule a show from a browser, it was the lightweight mobile web interface and worked great. Now it just redirects you to get their app and other useless account mgmt stuff (when you click on Current Customers), the scheduler part is gone. So if you're on a PC, you have to navigate their slow main site to do anything.

    Wah. :(

    Dang. I liked that interface. It felt both Tivo-like and mobile web-like.

    I guess they want people to use the iOS and Android apps instead, which doesn't help if you don't have one of those devices.

    I have an android phone but i would typically use the mobile scheduling on a browser from a PC since it was much quicker than going to TiVo.com to schedule a show.

    I just got off a web chat with a TiVo support rep about this issue (before I saw this thread) She advised to wait and try the site again in 24 hours. She seems to know absolutely nothing about the issue - certainly not that it has been down this long. I hope it comes back. I always used that on my Blackberry.

    I was really disappointed to see that they made this change. I used m.tivo.com to schedule things when I was away from home all the time, and now it's nearly impossible to do so.

    ETA: the TiVo app is just annoying. Nearly everything you click gives you a error that essentially says "This function doesn't work with your TiVo". It's like a slap in the face for somebody that's been a TiVo customer and evangelist for over 10 years.

    But anyone who is "with it" has one of those devices. Who cares about the Neanderthals?

    Well something is going on, if you go to m.tivo.com now you get a generic IIS7 home page not that crap they had before.

    Did any of you mention this on forums.tivo.com? You will get official results.

    Well, it now redirects to http://mobile.tivo.com/Portal/content/Tivo/Mobile/Site/Default.aspx , which gives the options for 'TiVo Walkthrough', 'Explore Products', and 'Current Customers'.

    None of these get me to scheduling. This bites. And I can't seem to get the iPhone app to schedule anything, probably because my TiVo XL isn't new enough.

    Maybe some hope. From the "Current Customers" page.

    Doesn't get you anywhere, just back to the landing page. Scheduling still a work in progress?

    Yeah, I noticed a few days ago that it had been taken down. Too bad, I used it when away from home to schedule recordings easily. Unfortunately, the recent update to the iOS app is a pain to use.

    And it has nothing to do with scheduling from a PC, which is the subject of this wah thread.

    True, but it is a way around the problem for the majority of us.

    Don't understand. I just went to tivo.com on my PC and scheduled a recording. Also from my tivo app on android?

    Obviously you never used m.tivo.com before.
