    It looks like TiVo is finally adding a mobile site at m.tivo.com. I can't wait until this is live. It has long been a requested feature to be able to schedule recordings and season passes from a mobile phone. Unlike the Verizon deal, it looks like everyone will now be able to use this feature without any type of fees.

    Yep, don't work here either yet. DNS doesn't resolve properly on either my iPhone or Mac.

    Seems to work, haven't actually tried scheduling yet. Looks good on the iPhone. :)

    /edit: Actually, this seems faster/easier than using the full web interface--as long as I know what I'm searching for I think I prefer the mobile site.

    Ok it seems like I can do everything when I am not logged in, but once I log in I cannot search (says unable to find any programs ...) or schedule anything.

    Anyone want to try signing in? Its beta so I am sure this will get fixed.

    Ok this is weird. When I have selected my Tivo HD, it does not work, but it will work with my Tivo S2.

    edit: now its working awesome!

    Tried it from my desktop and it worked like a charm. It will be nice to use this slimmed down version on my blackberry.

    the TiVo mobile site works for me on my Samsung BlackJack 2 using the AT&T service. I think it is a great addition, i just hope there is more functionality in the future. Like being able to view your todo list from your phone. that would be awesomeness.

    Update: I changed to the G1 Android Phone by HTC and on the T-Mobile Service. and this site works on this phone as well. which is awesomesauce!

    Definetly the todo list would be awesome.

    Oh yeah I hope those who paid for the Verizon app know about this site and cancel. Then again they should of known not to buy it in the first place. ;)

    The ToDo list is not possible. Even the main site can't show you this info. If you are signed up for TiVoCasts or Guru Guides then TiVo does know your season pass list. However, they have never provided a way to show this on the site, and I doubt there is any ability on in the TiVo software to delete these remotely.

    I was able to get all the way to the final recording request screen and then it told me the show did not appear in my Guide data. After that all of my searches came up with no results. :confused:

    That being said, it works much better on my PalmOS Treo than TCO did.

    I didn't see a login on the first screen...so I went thru finding a show and told it to record..then I got the Not Able to find the show in your listings, as others did.

    I was able to login on that screen however, and further searches rendered proper channels and successful recording submissions (i hope).

    This is a lot like the one DirecTV has. Both Tivo and DirecTV's desktop versions are bloated. I often use the mobile DirecTV version on my desktop because it is faster. Probably will do so for Tivo, too.

    Good to see this.

    Big :up: from me as well. I ahve an AT&T tilt phone and hated that I could not do one of the things on that that would come up once a month or so.

    Now when someone mentions a show I can look all adorkable and set it to record right while we are having the conversation about it.

    ETA - windows mobile 6 Smartphone, I went all the way through to record on a DT and have the recording scheduled to go. No hiccups

    A bit off topic, but anyone know if there is a mobile Amazon site for VOD? It seems like there is for everything except digital downloads...

    I'd love to be able to order a movie to download to the TiVo from my Internet Tablet, but even though it supports Flash and I can view most flash based sites on it, Amazon's is a no-go.
