    Is there a way that I can program my TiVo box to record a show from my Win 10 laptop?

    I forgot to program it to record the Super Bowl. We are on a trip and won't get back home until tomorrow.

    Thanks

    Sign into Tivo online then go to the guide and find what you want to record.

    http://online.tivo.com

    Another way is sign into Tivo online go to what to watch > sports and the game is listed in there.

    I clicked on that link, which opened using Edge, the browser that came with by Surface Book. When the website opened, it said that my browser is not supported. When I clicked on the Learn More button, it said my browser is Edge 18 and it is fully supported.

    Also easy with the TiVo app on your phone.

    Open Internet Explorer on your Surface and go to TiVo Online (or install Chrome).

    I installed Firefox and was able to open that page, but now it is asking for a sign-in. I have no idea if I have an account or what the password might be. I tried the email addresses I might have used to request a new password, but none of them were accepted.

    Can I create one now? I don't have any of my billing account into with me. :-(

    You need to use your TiVo account (email address and password). Have you ever accessed your account on tivo.com as it's the same account for TiVo Online and the app.

    If you don't have Login credentials (email/password), you'll need
    Service Number and Media Access Key:

    I was able to get to TiVo online using Firefox, but it wants my serial number, which I don't have. I'm trying the phone app now. It said it would send me a password. Still waiting...

    Pete Moss is using a Premiere. Will he have to have a Stream to do what he wants to do?

    That happened to me. This is the software I use to transfer shows to my Bolt. It still works, sort of.

    Thanks, I didn't know that. I'm pretty new to this. I thought I had read somewhere that to do anything from my phone I had to have a Stream. I just downloaded the Tivo app and set up a recording, easy peasey.

    The point is the software works for what I'm using it for, or at least I think so.

    A lot can be done with Online. It needs Chrome, IE11 or the new Edge. I use it with IE11 all the time.

    But can the person use the software in spite of the message? I'm just saying in my case it seems to work.
