    two features i've noticed i would like...

    1. on series 1 you name the program and the channel is irrelevant. its not clear if this is true with the VM box. should be channel independent
    (not sure if bug or wishlist or is happening but not clear and i've not investigated enough yet!!)

    2. HD/SD channels should overlay on the same channel number. ie transmit HD by default and if you scale down to SD on the TV, let the box deal with it and scale down the picture....
    (in fact why don't VM do this anyway, it will free some bandwidth!)
    then all recordings will be HD anyway.

    then it begs the question, can wishlists set the pic quality is HD/SD as well as season passes.

    2nd post on this - PLEASE let us disable PIN requirement. I have no kids and I even have to enter a PIN to watch the Sky at Night before 10pm. This is ludicrous.

    Not to mention "Click" at 1:30 or 4:30 am! Completely pointless :(:mad:

    +1 for this idea.

    IMO it would be best to implement it as not bringing up a PIN request at all if the PIN is set to 0000 (no GUI alteration required).

    On the Kindle, one of the sort options (the default one) is Most Recent. It lists all the items in order of when they were last accessed, with brand new items appearing first.

    This would be very useful on the TiVo. If you're halfway through a film that was recorded a few weeks ago it's a pain in the neck trying to page down to it.

    Putting all on-demand content in one place would be a great improvement. At the moment it's scattered all over the place, which means finding something involves trawling through the sluggish interface several times. Now all the BBC content has moved the iPlayer app it's even more ridiculous!

    the remote record function is next to useless. Tested it the other day to see how it goes. Out of the four programs I selected, two of them won't record due to clashes. The Web interface needs to be able to give you some sort of feedback from the TiVo to say, "yes, I will record it".
    Especially for one off episodes. If I tell Tivo to record an indivudal program, I WANT IT RECORDING.

    Or, TiVoWeb would be nice.

    One thing I thought would be nice last night (and I'm quite suprised it doesn't already do it) is folders in the suggestions folder. I was looking through my suggestions folder yesterday and had about 160 programs, quite a few of which were different episodes of the same program. Scrolling through them all takes ages, so it's a bit annoying when trying to find the earliest episode of a particular show and also the folders would make it far easier to delete all the episodes of a show that I wasn't interested in.

    I spent some time clearing out unwanted suggestions, to just leave the ones I thought I might watch at some point, to try and make the folder easier to navigate but that was a very slow process.

    Please, please, please, please, please, please can we have the skip-back and skip-forward (after REW/FF) as a option and not permenently enabled as I hate it and it adds more viewing time than it is supposed to save :(

    I mentioned this before & someone suggested a work around, by deleting the shows you want to keep & then recovering them, they are then placed in folders in the my shows screen.

    Allow a basic level version of tivoweb running on the tivo it'self the virgin remote recording just dosn't compare at all.

    At least the schedualing, SP setting and NPL listing including the rss feeds are things I use all the time.

    Also display text module is brilliant as it has many uses. Caller ID display for instance in our house and just saying hello when I'm abroad.

    Another item I would like to see in the Apps section is Radioplayer granted it doesn't currently have any kind of usable App but im sure Virgin / TIVO could work with them to bring to all the TIVO boxes
