    I remotely connect to my PC from work and when I have time, I schedule downloads/load up my pyTivo queue etc. I have noticed that you can https:// to your tivo to see whats on it (content-wise) but I dont see any way to ...

    1) check the version of the software its running
    2) initiate a software update
    3) delete recordings
    4) "reorganize" recordings
    etc

    Anyone know if this is possible? I am new to the forums; thanks.

    First, setup an account on Tivo.com

    Then you will have one or two choices depending upon if you have a smart device (iPhone, iPad w/ 3G, Android phone, some Android tablets w/ 3G, Amazon Fire w/3G) to do things away from home.

    If you don't have a smart phone, you will have to use any browser to do what you want on the computer of your choice.

    If you have one of those devices, you can run the free Tivo app to do what you want. A big plus of the apps is that you can use them when you are home too.
