Web based program guides that allow TiVo scheduling?

I really love TitanTV. Is there any way to use it to program recordings on my TiVo Roamio? If not are there any other similar web based guides that will?

I know TiVo has one on their site but I don't particularly like it.

Thanks

Titan TV has added an option called "Shobot" which allows you to schedule shows to your TiVo. Only a small number of shows show the Shobot icon in the program description box.

Click on one of those icons, click on the 'Other' box, and scroll down to TiVo to sign up for the service.

I have no idea if it works, or how well it works. I only found it when I was trying to find out what the annoying icons were!

It's been quite awhile ago since I used it, but it used to work fine...

This looks like a great option but it kept returning this error when I tried to link my TiVo account to it;

"Sorry, we're currently unable to link your TiVo account to your Zap2it account. Please try again later or contact customer support."

Hmmm....don't know what to tell you. I just unlinked my TiVo boxes from Zap2it, and when I tried to link again, I got the same error you did....

EDIT: when I tried again, I made sure I logged in to TiVo.com first, then when I tried I got this error message --

An error was encountered while trying to link your TiVo® device(s). Go to TiVo.com and make sure you have a TiVo® Series2™ or Series3™ DVR.

Go to TiVo.com »


So, apparently Zap2it is only looking for S2 or S3 machines. I have an HD (which is S3) and an XL4, so I'm not sure what the problem is...looks like they haven't updated their process in quite some time...
