Thumbs up New Feature That Will Come In Handy In This Area!!!

One of the new features of this Vb3 software that should come in very handy in this area, is the ability to SUBSCRIBE TO A FORUM.

Now in the last version, you could do this but it would only show in your User Control Panel (USER CP). In this version when you do, you can ask it to send you daily or weekly updates via e-mail of what has been posted!!!

You will find this option on the main thread list for this area under FORUM TOOLS. Drop down the box and select Subscribe To This Forum. You then will be asked what option you care to use to receive the updates!

Hope you like it, I know I will.

(Be sure you have tivocommunity.com in your approved list for any spam filter.)

That'll be useful for those of us (me) who forget to check this section. Thanks for the head's up.

No explicit complete list; just change the forum number on the link above (or add more separated by commas).

You can find forum numbers by looking at the URL to view threads in each forum.

Can you get RSS feeds for individual threads?

It does not appear to be so. (Its not something that particular feature supports).

Also as a side note: I'm not 100% sure on this, but I'm pretty sure that the RSS feed will only update (i.e. put new activity at the top of the list) upon the creation of a new thread, not on a subsequent post to that thread.

For this forum, knowing when a new thread is created is probably all that is needed. But I can see how that would cause a bit of an issue in other forums.

I see that the email notice sends notification of threads that have been updated. But can you change it so that the link takes you to the new post?

Thanks,
Mike

You are correct. And I now find this causing a problem. Not knowing if there are any additional posts to several of the SPA threads is requiring that I check this forum daily. And that negates most of the benefit of an RSS feed.

So the questions becomes, is there any way to change this? Or go back to the old feed?

The complete makeover of the forum's HTML means that significant changes would have to be made to my scraper for the old feeds to work again. Nothing insurmountable, but since I figured I was the only one who finds the built-in feeds insufficient, I haven't bothered to do anything.

Speaking as someone who scrapes the forums regularly (see my signature), the changes required are really simple.

Well, I'm not smart enough to do it (heck, I still write programs in COBOL--really!), but I vote someone do it. I think it may be more popular than you think.

And thanks for creating it in the first place.

Why do no other DVRs handle the season pass like Tivo does. You can tell the box to record all shows on a channel, but not on all channels at any time. Also, they usually keep multiple copies of the same show.

I believe your question would be better answered in a different thread and different sub-forum. I suggest "TiVo Coffee House - TiVo Discussion" or "TiVo Suggestion Avenue."

Handy

What would make it even more handy is if we could configure the e-mails to be sent just before prime time, rather than midnight (which is just after primetime).

I suppose maybe I could change it by picking a time zone near London. Or is the sending of the e-mail not based on anything in my settings, but rather the servers?

Chris

edit: changed (which is just after midnight) to (which is just after primetime)

Hmm, I guess subscribing to the SP Alerts thread in digest format isn't too helpful when an alert is posted for something airing the same day. I got the SP Alerts update at 1:16am that included a post from yesterday regarding the two hour airing of 24 last night. Is it possible to change the timing of the digest email?

I've been subscribed to this forum for a while, but it hasn't sent me an email in months. Anyone else having issues?

I also get emails almost daily from other forums here and I get ones from Season Pass Alerts at least a couple of times a week. Not sure what is wrong with your alerts.

I think some of the confusion may lie in what should be subscribed to. People should subscribe to the Season Pass forum - not this thread - for the needed updates and alerts.
