    I have recently started using this feature, of playing music on, ahem, my television.

    It takes me about 20 clicks to get there and get it playing.

    Is there a shortcut/macro?

    Also, if I want to check something out on TiVo, and go elsewhere--even momentarily--then I must go through all 20 clicks again. This is too tedious a procedure to do again and again.

    It doesn't continue to play while I'm perusing the TiVo menu etc., making simply playing the radio far preferable to this potenially fine service.

    I want to check to see if there are any other ways of using this feature (as well as the others under Music, Photos, Products, & More) that I'm missing before I post it as a suggestion.

    If you add channels to My Presets it reduces the number of clicks slightly. I think it brings it down to 5 or 6:

    TiVo
    Music photos & more
    Live 365
    My presets
    Select a preset
    Select play

    I'm not counting cursor movement as "clicks" - perhaps you are?

    I'm counting ever press of my thumb/finger as a click. I have several presets selected.

    No shortcuts, huh? (I've been making computer macros since WPDOS 4.0!)

    You must hate setting up wishlists...

    Heheheh. Nah, I don't mind the multi-clicks of setting up a wish list, but I don't want to go through all those steps every time I want to see a show! <g>

    Now, there's a thought . . . figure out how to go there via wishlist or -- not, I don't think I can do that with anything but the cable company's music stations.

    There must be some shortcuts . . . I can't believe Tivo would set up all these nifty add-ons and have them so labor intensive to access.

    I wonder if many people use these (Music, Photos, Products, & More) like Yahoo, etc. ?
