Tivo Mobile Site

I have a Windows Phone and was wondering how usable the m.tivo.com site is for the following things:
-Search for and set recordings (both single and series)
-View Guide
-Edit recording settings for series and singles (i.e. tell it to record 30 minutes extra)
-Delete recording
-View upcoming recordings

I'm currently using WMC, but will be buying a Roamio and 3 mini's soon. I know there is no Windows Phone app for Tivo and may never be one. I just want to make sure the mobile site will be functional enough for me to do the tasks above.

Yes, that is correct, TiVo discontinued the mobile site.

Well that certainly changes things. I assume I could try to pinch and zoom using the regular site. Can the non mobile site do the above things?

I don't own a Tivo so I don't have an account to log into. If you want to give me your account info I'd be happy to log into your account and set some recordings and delete some things I wish there was an easier way to test drive things before buying, but the 3 closest Best Buys don't even have working Tivo displays so I have to rely on the forums and YouTube to get an idea of how things will work.

The OP does not yet have a tivo.

The only thing that does not work from the mobile website is to delete a show.

Thanks, I can live without the ability to delete things as long as I can set a recording while not at home.

you can always install KMTTG on a pc, RDP into that pc with your phone and use KMTTG to completely manage the tivo. A long ways around, but it works.
