    Hi folks,

    Last night we rolled out a new version of TiVo Central Online (http://www.tivo.com/tco/) that includes the ability to sign up for TiVoCast programs and manage your subscription online.

    Right now we have entries for CNet, iVillage, and Heavy. In the future we will be adding additional content choices. (For now, NYT is managed via Showcase, and Rocketboom is managed via http://www.tivo.com/rocketboom/ but eventually those two will move to TCO as well.)

    Please let me know if you have any feedback! Enjoy.

    Best regards,
    Stephen

    Cool. You can finally manage how many episodes to keep. I'm been wanting this since the beginning :)

    Although, it would be nice to have an option to keep all episodes on the TCO page but thats not a big deal.

    Unfortunately there are a number of reasons why we are not offering "keep all episodes" -- the maximum for any of the series is 10.

    Once you hit 10 episodes, you won't download any more until one or more are deleted from Now Playing.

    Best,
    S.

    Hmm, I'm not sure I understand. You mean these episodes are KUID? Why do they not work like any other season passes and delete old episodes when you are at the max?

    TiVoStephen,
    Is there an API for us developers that want to TiVoCast our own content to our TiVos? And documentation or links would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    David

    Is there a way to cancel these things? We have an iVillage thing downloaded repeatedly, and cannot find any place to cancel the subscription.

    Hi bicker,

    You should be able to cancel the Season Pass from the To Do list of your DVR.

    Let me know if you have trouble.

    Best regards,
    Stephen

    EDIT: I gave the wrong answer before.

    Thanks for the progress TiVoStephen. Glad I can manage them all from one place. This should set TiVoCast up nicely for an influx of new content now ;) :up:

    Nothing major but I added the CNet tivocast and the manage page calls it "Current ("CNet")" which just looks weird. Also, the channel image url points to the wrong location so beside the name I just see the text "virtual Channel image". I'm guessing its because of the following html code is missing the source:

    Code:
    <img alt="virtual Channel image"  src="" width="142" height="37">

    Another bug (in FireFox), if you do "Edit Recording Options", the page information is way over to the right side of the page header instead of below it.

    Also, the "Keep Until" line says its "fifo". I'm guessing the end user isn't suppose to see it displayed like that.

    Another question I have is why you don't see these recording options when you create the TiVoCast initially.

    Rainwater, the shifting issue is being addressed, but I can't reproduce the Keep Until line saying "fifo" -- is this for a single recording or a Season Pass?

    I hate to keep bugging you but another bug :)

    Manage Guides allows you to change "Other recording options". Probably best this isn't an option since you shouldn't be allowed to pad downloaded content since that doesn't even make technical sense.

    Go to Manage Guides, click Edit Recording Options on the CNet guide, then under Other Recording Options you see "Keep Until: fifo".

    Hi folks,

    Looks like we made a mistake -- the "Manage Guides" section is not supposed to list TiVoCast subscriptions. Instead, you will manage that on the DVR under the To Do list.

    We will be updating TCO in the near future to change the behavior of the "Manage Guides" section.

    Best regards,
    Stephen
