I think it would be awesome if TiVo added an option that let you record a block of shows without having to select each show to record separately. For instance last week Sci-Fi ran repeats of the end of the first part of season 2 for BG, SG-1 and SG-A they also ran Firefly and a couple other shows. I know you can set it to record from a certain time to a certain time, but then you lose the ability to delete as you go along, with the marathons the total record time could be over eight hours. I think it would be great if you could select a record marathon option and then use the down button to get as far as you wanted in the marathon and then hit the select button to go to the recording options screen. With all the great shows on cable and all the marathons on 24/7 t.v. it seems like a no brainer!
