Still not sure what a collection is??
TiVo Central>Find Tv, Movies, & Videos>Browse TV & Movies>Collections> (select a collection)>Record this collection.
If you accidentally do this, it may record things you want now, but start recording things in the collection in the future, which you don't want. The collections might dynamically update, and may add/remove things from the collection. But, since I don't use this option, I don't know if it dynamically updates what is in the collection, or if it remains static.
Perhaps a user of collections can enlighten us.
It's not the source of my mystery future scheduled recordings with the large red circle with the small blue folder (as they display in the TiVo Live Guide, for me). They just have a single blue check mark in the ToDo list, or if exploring the program and viewing future instances of it (for me).
TiVo has some weird sh*t going on with their servers, TSN mappings, and user accounts. Corruption of any of these can cause plenty of weirdness, or many varieties, manifesting in many ways.
[GLOOM & DOOM]TiVo doesn't give a sh*t about us retail folk anymore. They want their MSO contracts, and it would be bad if retail Roamios operated better and/or more reliably than the boxes the MSO partners lease.
We're all just "legacy" leeches on TiVo's mind/middlemind/service teats.
I just hope we get enough time to make lifetime pay for itself, before TiVo gets bought, and retail is just "baggage" that comes with the package deal.
Even TiVoMargret seems to be too busy with things other than us retail folk, and I doubt we'll hear much more than announcements of the "Summer Update", likely to become a lackluster "Fall Update", possibly intentionally, to make us forget the big things to come that we heard about, so we'll just be happy if issues get fixed, and maybe the android people will finally get a lackluster official android support...
Yeah, I'm losing faith in TiVo, as a company for retail users... Tivo finally made a good piece of hardware, then gets rid of the hardware design staff, so they can focus on being a cloud for future MSO ventures...
The whole world is going to hell. Just turn on CNN if you don't know about it. Why should I expect TiVo not be be one of the next disasters.
All I want is what is broken, to be fixed, and three years to break-even on lifetime service. But, I have a feeling the retail channel will become the test-bed for TiVo to perfect their MSO offerings.[/GLOOM & DOOM]
[SATIRE]Oops, went off on a bit of a tangent there. Oh well, I typed it, might as well post it and give the fanboys something to attack.[/SATIRE]
