    Is there a way I can tell my Tivo to keep my seasons passes, just not record any of them for the time being?

    Just setting up a Sky+ box, so want to see what it can do, with the Tivo on "standby".

    Presumably just powering off the Tivo would do it, but there are things on there already recorded what I want to watch, so was hoping to leave it powered on.

    regards,

    Greg

    Having both a TiVo and SKY+, I would suggest that you leave the TiVo recording
    as the SKY+ sometimes has a "FAILED RECORDING".

    I am considering getting rid of the Tivo, it too has let me down occasionally, not changing channels, even with endpad missing the end of programs, occasional green screen.

    So I wanted a trial run without Tivo ;)

    Regards,

    Tadley,...
    When you switch from TiVo to Sky+ you will change "occasionally" to "constantly". I wouldn't have a Sky+ box if they paid me to use it.

    My Sky+ thoughts!!


    My No 1 Tivo Broke......

    Went and got Sky+

    Decided it was not "Plus" at all...

    Went to that famous auction site and got me another Tivo....

    guys,

    I really don't want this to turn into a Sky+ vs Tivo thread. Can anyone answer my question?

    regards

    Greg
