    I'm curious what people are doing with tvmaze and similar sites. What do you get from adding all your shows to a list there?

    It sounds like organizing your weekly watching, but for me, Tivo means turning it on and seeing what's waiting for me. Yeah, Netflix and Prime have to be polled separately and I often don't see shows on the night they come out.

    I do go to futon a few times a year to check for new shows. And epguides occasionally if I'm curious how many eps are left.

    For me personally, I ditched Tivo and I don't have a DVR anymore because almost everything I watch is on demand now.

    I still have TiVo, but there's also a lot of streaming stuff I watch. So it's extremely convenient to have all my To Do from all sources in one place.

    One weird thing I've found myself doing recently is for HBO shows, I'll record them to my DVR as a "reminder" to watch them, then go to the TiVo 4K streamer and watch them on HBO Max. The resolution is 1080P which is "upscaled" to 4K. And if for some reason I lose my internet connection (as what happened a couple of weekends ago), I still have the recording to fall back on. Since HBO is commercial free, I'm fine with this. The problem with On Demand from most channels is that they have a ton of commercials, which I can skip over on my DVR. Obviously if you have a no commercial tier, streaming is a better option, but for my situation, I'm not going to pay for that while I can still record stuff on my DVR.

    I watch very little streaming, and still use TiVo (in addition to DirecTV Genie)... so why you ask...

    I enter all the series I watch on FutonCritic. It gives me a calendar of upcoming broadcasts. It's accuracy is close to 100%.

    I like to make sure that every show that is supposed to record, does record. DVRs aren't perfect (well, their guide data, that is), and while 98% accuracy may be good, I want 100%. So every week I print out the next couple weeks according to FC, and compare to my DVRs To-Do Lists. I find TiVo is about 95% accurate, and DirecTV is about 98.5% spot-on. Having said that, Billions was not set to record on DirecTV this past Sunday. No idea why, a rare miss for DTV.

    Also, I may have added a new series to my watch list several weeks before, well before the guides have it, so using FC reminds me to finally set an SP when it's ready to record.

    It's just being anal/OCD about my TV watching.

    I use MetaCritic for new series. I check it every couple weeks, looking at the next six weeks or so. Adding any new shows I want to try to FC.

    Why not just set a "Bookmark" in TiVo as a reminder?

    Well, for one I don't have a regular TiVo, just the streamer (I have the DirecTV DVR...HR54).

    Second, I don't use the TiVo streamer EXCEPT to watch HBO Max at this point, so I'm rarely on there unless I have something specific to watch (well like the stuff I reminded myself to watch on my DVR. So a bookmark is useless unless I actually see it. I tend to use my Roku and Firestick as my "go to" devices. Mostly Roku since it integrates well with my Harmony remote.

    Nothing I watch on demand has commercials except for my baking shows on Food Network. Probably because I have CBS All Access and AMC Premiere. Everything else I watch on HBO/Sho, Hulu, Netflix or Amazon Prime.

    I can't give up TiVo because the UI is so far superior to anything else. Especially FF/RW. Even for HBO I record programs on TiVo and watch them that way rather than streaming. Plus I do watch a decent number of network shows still, including the news... where good FF is absolutely indispensable :)

    We got our first TiVo in 1999... we're on our third now and have transferred our initial lifetime service purchase to each one; generally we don't upgrade unless there's an option to transfer. To me it's still one of the best deals we've ever made.

    Sorry for venturing further off topic...

    I have 3 streaming devices I use (Android TV, TiVo, and Roku) with 3 streaming apps I use (Netflix, Amazon Prime and Plex) and I can never remember how to FF/RW well, regardless of concerns about the visual quality. I end up far from where I wanted to be, frustrated, and button mashing to get close.

    The ONE thing I've found with streaming of any type is the FF/RW is usually terrible. My DirecTV receiver and the TiVo before it worked much better. Even the streaming TiVo device isn't great at it.
