Speculation by users is fun, not fact. The only real promised item that is late, very late, is android streaming and to a lesser extent remote iphone streaming. Everything else is just for the enjoyment of it.

There is no doubt tivo is better than a comcast dvr! Those are pain.

That was my complaint when I went from a 2TB drive with the ELite to a 3TB drive with the Roamio Pro. The My Shows list was really becoming more difficult to look through. I could not imagine 24 TB of shows. If they would introduce profiles it would go a long ways to help with the organization of the shows.

I think that's part of the reason TiVo implemented the 2-column thing in the My Shows screen. The left part you can filter out just TV show, just movies, just kids shows, etc. As part of being able to show less stuff without actually having to implement a complex mechanism to filter.

If you participate in the monthly TiVo surveys you can see that it's pretty clear that they are working toward some sort of tagging feature.

It could easily be implemented in a way that was completely invisible to people who have no interest. Just make it 100% optional. Have a setting box somewhere to setup custom tags... and then when creating a season pass, have an option where if you want too, you can assign one of these tags.

Find the whole thing confusing? Great, it won't really effect you at all. Just ignore it.

It's not hard to imagine a simple way to implement it.

At first I was excited for the 2-column view, but I found myself never using it and eventually just turned it off. If I could bring it back, but have it filter by tags, that would be incredible. As it is now, it's pretty useless for me.

We haven't made the jump to Tivo yet, but when we do I really hope they have some kind of tagging/profile scheme in place. We currently use RecordedTVHD on our Windows Media Center and it works pretty well. There are a few things that could be improved, but I'd never want to go back to just one big list of shows. We have a profile for each family member.

I would imagine tagging is especially useful on the Mega. Maybe this is the start of a cloud Tivo.

Problems are, what if the tagging feature is not optional and invisible and it screws up the entire experience for everyone including those who couldn't care less for profiles and tagging? The other problem is how accurate would the tags be and who manages it? I mean Tribune Media has been known to not be accurate with their program descriptions let alone their categories, and who knows if TiVo would want to do it in house or just outsource it.

With RecordedTVHD you add a show to one or multiple profiles and every instance of that show is listed under that profile(s) including future recordings. You are always in control and not dependent on the shows having any special metadata. You can even delete (really just hiding it) a show from one profile while it's still remains in the others. The last person to delete the show actually deletes it.

A folder per show isn't "un-tagged"

I totally agree. I mean yes I can definitely imagine having that many shows if they're not in folders could be a problem obviously, however if they are all in folders it's much easier to manage and scrolling through would just be as simple as using the channel up and down buttons, plus as others have mentioned, the implementation of the My Shows left column is very helpful in this situation.

Anyone figured out how to set up a Season Pass 1 or 2 months out - not wishlist.

use search (or categories) to find a new fall show, select, and setting an sp will be an option.

A cool new feature is being able to set the SP for "Any channel"

Yep. That's already come on handy a few times.

I tried that last night for NFL football and when I checked the upcoming shows on various channels, it didn't include them all. Any idea why?
