Can I "reset" the progress bars in the Tivo Menu?

After you watch a show there is a blue "progress bar" next to the title letting you know if you stopped watching in the middle or finished at the end. Is there any way to reset that bar either individually, at the folder level, or on the whole machine (folder level would be the most preferred).

My son uses it to know if he's watched an episode or not. But once he watches them all what do we do?

thanks

1. Press select in the My Shows to get to the program info and you should see Resume Playing, press right arrow and select From Beginning.

2. Play the recording and press ->| once to put it to the end, and again to jump to the beginning. Multiple presses just alternate to the beginning or end.

3. Press << or >> while playing and then each press of ->| will move to the next tick mark (15 or 30 minute) in that direction on the green progress bar onscreen. (slow way) Press Play to resume normally.

When you are done, press left arrow. If you are within the last 5 minutes, it will ask to either keep or delete. If you are back at MyShows, you can delete either by going into the program info and select delete. Alternatively, pressing Clear does delete whether you are on the Myshows with the show highlighted or within the info screen.

If you choose to keep the show, the Tivo will delete ONLY when it requires space following any suggestions and emptied Recently Deleted Folder.

Have your son do it. It's your TiVo, yes?

He's just making a joke. I.e., your son's the one watching the shows, make him reset the bars on YOUR TiVo. You know, like how you expect if he borrows the car to not leave you with an empty tank, etc.

Your TiVo, your rules .

So is there a single key sequence to handle every case?

Something like
Play, Skip to Beg, Left, Down
Play, Skip to Beg, Left, Down
Play, Skip to Beg, Left, Down

Could be done by TCP remote if so.

Basically I found it more putting the progress mark at the beginning instead of the end.

So from menu select play from beginning, skip forward 30 seconds, left to exit show. Then select the next one.

Why are you needing to reset the bars, just curious. Your son uses it to tell if he has watched them, are you then wanting to track whether you have watched them?

That's an interesting idea - Multi-user progress bars.
If TiVo would just implement profiles there would be an easy UI for it.

He's 5. He'd watch the same episode over and over again pretty happily. Now that he controls the tivo himself its helpful for him to be able to mark them. But when he gets through them all we need to reset them so he can start over.

Pressing PLAY on a folder of shows will start playing all of them from the oldest to newest, from the beginning of each show.

that would be WAY too much show for one sitting. We limit him to one episode of a show a day.
