    what about backing up settings if not content to a computer?
    if my tivo became faulty and needed changing, i would loose all my series links, suggestion data etc. as well as hours of programs

    Funnily enough I was also going to post about this today, we should be able to at least back up our settings either to a remote server or usb stick

    The US TiVos already have an online season pass manager, and VM shares the same codebase so the code is there. (see here for UK / US differences)

    Note it also mentions backing up SPs from one TiVo to another.

    As I've already mentioned this a few times I hope it's "in the list"

    doesnt tivo only record it once because it recognises it has a copy already.
    Happy to be corrected as I've not tested, but for season passes I don't get duplicates so not sure why I would with wishlists.

    Would prefer the channel filtering so I don't get, say, radio programmes.
    eg Doctor Who - new only, gives the BBC7 radio episodes as well as TV.

    Wishlists does display all versions - but only records one of them.

    Are you certain that the "other" recordings are not recorded suggestions.
    I have noticed a few times when opening a folder for a wishlist recording that I have duplicate/triplicate recordings that are suggestions.

    PS just had to clear out a few unwatched recordings Tivo was at 99% full :eek:

    Anyone recently setup a series link for Dr Who and noticed how long ot takes to scroll down the upcoming episodes due to it listing every single regional version of BBC One :(

    It's just clutter that's not needed! When will Virgin understand the issue ??? :(
    Suppose just the same as the Pin number issue it's one they will ignore, everyone on this forum told Virgin about the Pin so now they have launched the top thread in the Tivo Virgin forum is guess what.... the Pin number issues.

    Virgin just listen to your customers, especially the ones who know how Tivo 'should' work

    No I turned suggestions off. My disk space usage is in the high 90s so I prefer to keep the recently deleted programmes instead

    Yesterday I got 2 copies of points of view recorded and that was after deleting 2 others from the to do list. Each time I deleted 1 another appeared a few minutes later!

    Did you ask for one copy?

    That's unusual. It may be due to poor guide data meaning they are not identified as being the same. Or, as OzSat hints, it may be due to you setting the recording options to record every episode, instead of first-run only or first-run and repeats.

    I have quite a few generic wish lists, and they avoid recording duplicates.

    Also, if it is listed as a Sh*** type id - then it will record multiple copies as there is no way of TiVo currently knowing they are the same.

    Thanks very much for the update Keir.

    It was very welcome and answered several questions that I had.

    If I may add a couple of questions;

    Are there any plans for a an Android/Apple/Microsoft app to remotely program and manage your home Tivo? A little like the SKy+ app...

    If so do you know of a likely time line?

    Secondly (or thirdly depending on your point of view) do you know what other HD channels are planned for 2011 for example adding Universal HD...?

    Thanks no doubt in advance.

    I wonder if its too late now to ask for the blue button filter to remember that when I show the guide I still want favourites or HD or whatever the last thing I chose before going into standby.

    Its a wishlist so I would only expect 1 copy of each weeks episode.

    But it may not be an episode as far as the data is concerned - I'll check later.
