    hello

    i just started using the online scheduling, and it's awesome. i like it better than scheduling from the tivo itself.

    the thing is, the online site lists all channels. so, sometimes i search and find a show, and hit "record" -- and later, on the tivo, realize that channel isn't part of my cable package. so, i get a blank screen recorded.

    i've removed these channels from my tivo, and they don't show up when i search for shows. but when i search online, they do show up.

    is there anyway to tell my online thing to only show channels i have listed on my tivo?

    At this point in time, TiVo Central Online can only pull up a list of all the channels associated with your channel lineup, even if you have them deselected on the unit itself. Pulling that information from the DVR would be a violation of our current privacy policy. Plus having that information for all of our customers would require a lot of server space to store.

    That said, we are researching ways to make this possible in future.

    Well, I would definitely click an "agree" box to let you guys sync my channels.

    I'm just discovering online schedulling, and it is incredible. I prefer to schedule everything this way, since typing is so much quicker.

    I only wish the channels were limited to what I've selected on my box, and that I could stop getting the alert messages on my TiVo message box.

    Since I schedule everything online, I get too many messages. A simple "web" icon next to the program in the To Do List would be much better. I don't need a note.

    I can not sign into TiVo central online. Can not sign in at all to manage account. I keep getting the following error:

    "Gateway Timeout
    The proxy server did not receive a timely response from the upstream server."

    TiVo support suggested another ISP. Tried three different ISP and still have the same problem. TiVo support is no help. Any thoughts?
