    Thanks for the (sad) report.

    Are things like this just idiosyncratic to each user? Or did TiVo just not test TiVo+ in the wild, before releasing it? Or did TiVo just not care?

    Who knows why TiVo keeps doing this. Repeatedly they have added some new functionality and put lots of effort into marketing it as the most wonderful thing ever, but then put minimal effort into a half-assed barely-functional implementation. To make matters worse, they pick some older functionality that we loved and that worked great, and quietly remove it or break it without notice or comment.

    Remember the videocast aggregator? Was so wonderful, simply to find my Internet videos there on my TiVo box, waiting for me. (And think how wonderful it could be nowadays in the YouTube, etc. generation.) Sigh, I only discovered this functionality shortly before TiVo abandoned it.
