    After going through a bit of a nightmare with the TiVo site - as there are THREE separate places to submit custom RSS feeds to TiVo - AND NONE OF THEM WORK...

    I finally got the true method for getting them added from a TiVo employee. Here's what he told me:

    Basically, the end result of that is to tell you to email this address: tivo@samba.tv

    I can say it does work - I submitted two of them, and they showed up two or three days later on my TiVo. I was initially concerned that it would show up on the Hotlist app, which I was totally NOT interested in. But submitting to this email address DID work.

    That their site is such a mess that they still have all these old non functional "Add an RSS feed" links speaks to how disorganized their site is. I sent them a nastygram about that, which I'm sure someone read, and got deleted, but hey. To their credit, the guy who told me about the procedure above did say the following, but AFAIK, it hasn't changed anything.

    As a point of reference, here's what I sent them when I last asked for something to be added:

    Thanks for posting Joe! I was just looking for this too.

    I'd like to see WGN's newscasts made available as Tivo web videos.

    Not sure how to make this happen.

    That's a live stream. You can't add something that doesn't have its video clips available in an rss stream.

    Thanks. I was wondering about that.

    I'm hoping WGN will make the changes needed so that their Tivo audience can watch the WGN news again.

    We really miss it and I know a lot of other WGN America viewers do too.
