    Does anyone know how to make a change to the "Channels I Watch" list using TivoWeb? I'm away from a week and I just noticed that next Wednesday's epsisode of Six Feet Under on More 4 is not going to record because of a clash with Desperate Housewives.

    Looking for a solution, my first thought was to record on more4+1, but I seem not to have added it to CIW. Looked around in TW and can't find a way to add it.

    Next thought was a Manual Recording, but that only lets you choose channels in CIW!

    Solution is to record DH on Sumday, thus freeing SFU to record on Wednesday, but my original question remains. Is it possible?

    Sorry but no, I don't think so.

    Yes it's possible, but not by any of the default menus (that I know of). You can use the web remote to do anything, but only if you know the keystrokes (because of course you're doing it blindly).

    I'm recording something (batch save to VCR) at the moment so I can't figure out what the keystrokes are. I'll edit this post in an hour or so with what the keystrokes needed are.

    edit: keystrokes for adding more4+1 (using the Sky channel number, modify to freeview/cable as appropriate):

    livetv (doing this first ensures next tivo press takes you to tivo central)
    surfdown (channel page down)
    surfup (to ensure we're at top of menu list)
    down (to select "My Preferences")
    surfup (to ensure we're at top of menu list)
    down (to select "Customise Channels")
    surfup (to ensure we're at top of menu list)
    select (to choose CYR)
    num6 (to select more4+1 on sky ... wait a few seconds to ensure channel selected)
    right (takes you back to CYR or FC menu) ... all done !!, livetv now to quit
