After receiving some feedback, I have started this thread to allow for the normal forum discussions for the "Urgent Pad Recording Alerts" thread. POST URGENT ALERTS ONLY TO THE FOLLOWING THREAD: EAST: http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?t=422910 (other time zone threads and links will be added here if this works as planned) To get the intended results, the alert thread should be subscribed to with the setting of "Instant Email Notification". Only post to the alert thread when you are letting other users know of schedule changes for later that day caused by live sports or other television events. Your will receive an instant email notification when anyone posts to the thread. You will also need to visit the TCF website to receive another instant email notification again later. Please post for entire network changes, not just a single show. For example, when the earlier game/event ends and the lineup for the remainder of the day is determined, a post could state: "CBS prime time lineup pushed back 54 minutes for Sunday 3/29." Details for individual program times could be included. PLEASE DO NOT POST FOR LATE RUNNING SPORTING EVENTS. You should automatically pad your sports recordings anyways. Most of us that plan on time-shifting a sporting event don't want to know anything about it (overtime/extra innings) before we watch it. This should come in handy if the thread is used properly. PLEASE SUGGEST AND COMMENT IN THIS THREAD ONLY - posting general discussion or replying to other users directly in the alert thread will defeat its useful capabilities.
