    once they have the data on their servers a lot more is possible. I always saw cooperative scheduling as too complex for a TiVo to process while it had all the real time stuff going on.

    HME seemed the next way to go but it seems they did not want ot make a lot of DVR APIs public to HME. :(

    but this is a way to go as well. More than cooperative scheduling I really just wanted one pleace to manage all my season passes on the various TiVo at one time. With dual tuners cooperative scheduling in itself is not such an issue anymore but having a screen that would list all my season passes and which TiVo they are on and then view upcoming shows and which are set to record or not would be fairly easy to design (though a LOT of work to code) the only new function would be to cancel a season pass or recording.

    That would give us "manual" cooperative scheduling by making it easy to move stuff around. really all I need and Iwould feel better doing it myself I think then having a program moving shows around to where I have to hunt them back down

    Very Cool!

    Now let me edit the passes, move them to another box, etc. through TCO!

    How do you do that on Tivo Central Online? I'm not seeing it.

    Duh! Now I read it again. Someone put me down for the running of the least attentive forum member of the month.

    It'd be nice to have, would be difficult, too, especially if it is real time. I haven't hacked my Tivo this way, but is it possible to access a Tivo's SP list through TivoWeb with the port 80 opened on the router and forwarded to the Tivo box?

    Editting will be extremely tricky. Because TCO isn't dealing with real time data and doesn't transfer it back realtime, dealing with conflicts would be real difficult to pull off. I wouldn't count on it anytime soon.

    I have been changing the configuration of recordings online for years on my ReplayTV and it is very nice even though changes only get pushed once a day.

    TiVo can update every 15min or less.

    Imagine the ability to view and edit a full list of your season passes, reorder in bulk with no waiting, change KUID, # to save, first run only, en masse.

    Now add even more feature like grouping season passes and shutting them down out of season without having to delete them, moving a season pass from one box to another.

    It can be done, it doesn't have to be complicated, and it would be AWESOME!

    Sure, in addition to TCO TiVo should provide access to the scheduling engine for HME apps and then someone will write a killer app for LAN control as well.
    Still these are features that really should be on TCO.

    This sounds like a job for the Gurus. Are they up to the task?

    I did Clear And Delete after a Instant Cake upgrade. Would that cause the SP not show up? I'm running 7.3 and did another download.

    I was going to redo my ID's in the HME however those was there even with 7.2 :up:

    Oh I'm drooling! I would so be in heaven if we had the ability to do this. I'm so confused between my 2 S2 TiVos and my MCE setup... There are so many season pass duplicates and triplicates and no easy way to clean them up without running all over the hosue with a pad of paper and a list written of what's on what...

    Not to drag out an old thread, but, does the TiVoMagic keep thumb data and all? Just want to confirm?

    This makes the possibility of doing an internal upgrade to our HD almost as likely as just popping on a My DVR Expander.

    I just visited my account at TiVo.com, and I can't find where I signed-up for Guru/KidZone Guide features. I vaguely remember doing so years ago, and my TiVo's System Information page says, Opt Status: Optedin (is that it?), but I just wanted to check.

    Does KidZone actually have to be turned-on for my Season Passes to get backed-up online to the mother ship? Or is just being signed-up for it enough?

    Are the season passes restored right away (1 or 2 calls?) or does it take some time before they filter back?

    Thanks...

    You must subscribe to at least one Guru guide for the unadvertised feature to 'work', I do not think you actually have to have the KidZone feature turned on. I do not know if it will start repopulating the data if you force a couple of calls, but it will begin to appear within a day. Just put in your new drive and be patient (assuming you are using a Guru guide). Then enjoy.

    If I misstated, I will be corrected by one of the fine TCF or TiVo folks.

    Would it suffice to subscribe to one category, but go into Customize and uncheck all its shows, yet still get the stealth backups?

    I don't know. Maybe check 1-2 shows just to be safe?

    I just wish that the powers-that-be at TiVo would just go ahead and make backups to the mother ship an official, explicit feature, automatic for everybody! I mean, backing up one's computer is standard best practices. Why doesn't TiVo just do it, anyways? The programming is already coded; just pull the trigger!
