    Is there a quick way to record all the world cup games that will be showing on television with my Tivo rather than selecting each game individually?

    I have never used that feature or heard of it. How do I go about doing that?

    Play around with it first, it is actually pretty straightforward once you take a look. Like a season pass where you can enter words or descriptions.

    I ended up setting up a Season Pass.

    Find 2014 FIFA World Cup (Game 1 is on ESPN - June 12).

    Set Season Pass; record new only; extend live recording by however much you want.

    This will record the games on ESPN.

    Step two: Modify Season Pass (add channel); add ESPN2

    Step three: Modify Season Pass (add channel); add ABC

    (I totally stumbled across the 'add channel' to Season Pass feature).

    I knew they were showing games across all 3 networks, but didn't want to set up a Season Pass for each channel. It allowed me to add ESPN2 and ABC as part of the Season Pass and now shows games from all 3 channels in my To Do List.

    I extended each game by 1 hour (not sure if that's really needed), but w/ a 6-tuner Roamio, why not?

    Games are also being shown on Univision...so, I suppose if you wanted to add those game in (as opposed to or in addition to games on ESPN2/ABC), you could do that as well.

    Where is this feature? Did you setup just a normal season pass?

    If I weren't at work (working) ;) and was in front of my TV, i'd try to walk back through it for you. I'll see if I can recreate it this evening. But I was totally taken aback by it because i'd never seen it as an option before.

    I did set up a normal season pass (starting with Game 1 on ESPN).

    Well leave! :p

    Yes please let me know because I just tried to edit a SP and didn't see any option to add channels to it.

    Do you have a retail Tivo? Or a Tivo from a cable company?

    Retail TiVo (Roamio Plus purchased from BB)

    and if i could leave, i would :)

    Edit:
    In reviewing my SP List (online), it shows as 3 separate Season Passes, but i know that i was able to add ESPN2 and ABC from the original SP setup, initially created on ESPN.

    All of the games are being shown on ESPN, ESPN2 or ABC. The games being shown on Univision are a subset of those games but obviously in Spanish. No need to add Univision unless you prefer to hear your futbol in Spanish.

    Not all the games in Spanish will be on Univision, some of the games will be on UniMas.
    For Cable subs the games on Univision will simulcast on UDN(Univision Deportes) and the UniMas games will simulcast on Galavision.

    All Games will also be streamed on futbol.univision.com and the Univision Deportes app for tablets and smartphones(No Login Required).

    It should be easier to find.

    If you're using the iphone app, searching for 'world cup' or 'soccer' will not give any of the world cup games as results.

    You have to seach for '2014 FIFA'.

    I signed up for an account on this website just to post and tell you thanks for listing these instructions. It would have taken me two months to figure this out on my own. Thank you so much!!!

    Has anybody been having problems with their WC recordings? I've been getting occasional breakups where the picture freezes and starts back up about a second or so later but that second is not recorded. Not sure if it's the broadcast or my 3tb hard drive I put in a couple weeks ago. I have Verizon Fios.
