    the only thing in tivo is kids shows! I honestly think this has happened only one other time!

    What about others? How often do you get completly caught up? It is snowing so we are going to watch movies and play board games assuming we can get the kids to stop playing battlefront 2!

    Never. For me to get caught up it would take several weeks of only repeats on for that to happen. I am usually right on the edge of losing recordings so I couldn't imagine the amount of time it would take me.

    I have never gotten caught up. Every time I make a decent dent in my recordings, I lose it all the next day with more recordings

    Right now I'm pretty close to being caught up. I only have about 4 or 5 hours to catch up on. Of course, Sopranos, Big Love, The Next Food Network Star, and Malcolm are on tonight....

    I'm also making my way through SG:1 on DVD, have seasons 1 & 2 of Buffy sitting here, eps of Life on Mars on my computer, series 1 of Clocking Off, series 2 of Shameless, series 2 & 3 of Teachers...all on DVD.

    I'm close !

    I lost about 6 hours a week of shows because of cancellations this Winter and, lately, reruns have hammered me. It's rare that I can watch reruns of anything. Now, the loss of the 3 hour SciFi Fridays shows have hurt me again - though Dr. Who brings that down to 2.

    First, let me say that I DO NOT USE TIVO CORRECTLY. I usually watch what I've recorded that day the same night, yes there are times I don't get it done, but for the most part TiVo is pretty empty.

    I'm pretty caught up on my Moxi. On one of my TiVos I'm a couple of shows from being caught up. On my other TiVo (the one with 2 hard drives) I've got so many shows that I don't know how I'll ever get caught up! The TiVo with the 2 hard drives is located in the guest room so I don't spend as much time in there.

    We're pretty close and might be caught up this evening.

    Of course, that doesn't count almost the whole first season of House that I've been recording so that we can watch it this summer.

    Not much! We are snowed in! I've never been cow tipping, I like animals and I'm not really from here!

    From my link, above:

    "Finally, attempting to tip a cow is a patently dangerous activity. Despite the animal's reputation for being placid and slow-moving, a cow is easily capable of hurting someone when provoked or nervous; a herd of cows or a bull (easily mistaken for a cow in the dark) would be even more dangerous."

    Be afraid, very afraid !

    There's nothing worse than a Mad Cow !

    It depends on what you mean by "caught up." We have several prime-time shows that we watch and we're close to being caught up on those, but we also have SPs for several other shows that we just record "in case" and sometimes they get watched and sometimes the next episode just records over it. Plus I've got a couple of shows that I can't record on TiVo due to conflicts so I download them and I'm saving them on the computer until summer.

    Okay, newbie to tivo question time.

    I am usually caught up on tv shows because we watch it that week - mostly the night before the new episode comes on. I do have quite a few movies now on my tivo memory and will be putting them on dvd.

    Question is this, how do you record a whole season or such of a tv show without wanting to watch it? (as someone said they did for House)
    And do you record it on the tivo and then let it sit there? How is that done without it being erased or it interfering with other recordings. I am asking because today when I was trying to extend the save till date on a couple of shows I got the message 'if I keep till -blank date- then it will not record this and that show'. How do you get around/past that?
    I find this a frustrating pop up when I am trying to program for new movies or extend the life of something that is on there.

    Lots of people have added larger capacity hard drives to their TiVos and have tons of space to record stuff. My S1 has 180+ hours so I have tons of stuff saved on there. I've got about 50-60 episodes of New Yankee Workshop set as KUID because I'm too lazy to record them to a tape. I really wish TiVo had a batch play/save feature. My S2 has only 40 hours so I don't keep things on there very long, but I can move stuff from there to my computer and then back when I want to watch. I'm saving Veronica Mars for the summer and my wife is just now starting on the second season of Grey's Anatomy.

    was close about 2 months ago, but now I could watch 4 hours of recorded shows for about 3 weeks straight ( figured about 70 hours to watch)

    I emptied out programs on all three Tivo's this afternoon. This is the first time I can ever remember all three being empty since I got my first one in 02'. Oh well plenty coming up this week to watch.
