    Add a playlist option to the on demand music so I don't have to keep selecting the next song. Also add a "genius" mode like iTunes so you can play one song and it creates a playlist of similar taste in music.

    Profiles so each member of the household has their own "my shows"(now playing) list.

    That would be really good, especially as our family's viewing tastes are getting increasingly polarised.

    I feel like this was mentioned during early previews, or something. May have been wishful thinking on my part of course. :rolleyes:

    As already mentioned:

    1) The ability to turn off PIN requirement. This is incredibly annoying. I don't have kids in the house!!!
    2) Start the guide from the current channel rather than from 100

    Plus:

    3) Show the time the show runs from and til in the information banner, or at least some kind of 'progress' bar so that you know exactly how much of the programme has been missed.

    That's about it. Overall very impressed with the performance of this box.

    Another thing which makes a complete mockery of the PIN system is that the Horror Channel (149) are currently showing "The Dead Zone", which is really a post-watershed show, at 12pm and it does not require a PIN.

    Don't know if anyone else has mentioned this but would be very nice if the 28 day rule could be extended. e.g. to 3, 6 or maybe even 12 months. So many programs get repeated continuously and I don't want to re-watch something after just one month. Can't imagine it adding too much load these days.

    would love a folder/s in recordings and my shows named his and hers.
    my folder, sports and man stuff.
    Her folder, lots of foody type stuff, eastenders and the like.

    instead of trolling through loads of dross :cool:

    When watching a recording, pressing My Shows should take you to the page and select the recording you are watching, not some random recording.

    I keep deleting the wrong recording by mistake :)

    I'd like to have the old 60x fast-forward speed back, at least as an option.

    Currently the fastest speed is around 30x, so it takes twice as long to advance anywhere. The next speed is 20x, so the fastest speed is only 50% faster. After using the box for a month, I don't think it is fast enough.

    (This is another of those little things which make the new TiVo experience slightly worse.)

    Would be nice to have suggestions put into folders.

    For example at the moment I have about 4 episodes of Poirot in my suggestions would be great if these were grouped.

    Oh and I know its been mentioned many times but............

    Get rid of the damned PIN................GGrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    Agree about the suggestions, have over 100 of them and it's a complete mess and too slow to scroll through them....

    If you create an auto-record Wish List, it becomes a folder and any Suggestions that match it go into the folder. I have some very generic Wish Lists purely to help organise Suggestions.

    See item #32 in the Hints and Tips thread.

    Have an easy way to get to the top/bottom of My Shows. I have loads of pages (Currently on 98% full but has been higher :eek:) and it takes ages to get from earliest to latest one page at a time.

    The skip button >| (underneath FF) does that ;)
    Skips from top to bottom of any list.

    So it does. Thank you very much. It seems to toggle as well.

    I've found if you delete the suggestion then recover the program from the recently deleted folder they get their own folder in my shows (i.e if they're all Piorot's).

    Agreed it's a bit of a chore but the end result is a folder that's wanted, it's a shame that TiVo doesn't rid me of housekeeping!

    Thanks for that I must give it a try :up:

    Just hope this is a feature they will add, as with 3 tuners the suggestions keep mounting up :cool:
