As I've said before, the FAQ is not in-your-face enough. It really should be a popup for new users.

If you go to my website and click on the Forum, you'll see what I'm talking about.

Also, the TiVo Community FAQ is nice, but the questions are phrased in such a way that only some who is ALREADY intimately familiar with TiVo could find answers to their questions. And finally, 2/3rds of the questions in that FAQ are not ones that are asked frequently!!

I'm working on a new FAQ here. It's hardly what I consider finished, but I'll keep working on it.

We're working on that. This isn't my forum so I can't do it but I have asked the local mods to do so.

Feldon, I hear you. However, this is all that I can personally do right now, so how about giving me a break? :)

And though I already mentioned it in the FAQ new ideas thread, the vB conversion changed the URLs of many of the threads the FAQ points to. I've already run through this copy, updated those I could find new URLs for and deleted those for which there was neither an old nor new working link. All a FAQ maintainer has to do is copy the HTML over to the real FAQ.

...But FWIW, I posted some helpful hints in the thread in my signature. Newbies may find it useful. </horn>

Done. Thanks for the help.

I also updated a bunch of other little things in the FAQ like changes because of the new forum software, a few things that aren't true anymore with the current software, and info on the AT&T box.

As for changing the format of the FAQ or removing old questions (that are still correct), I'm leaving all decisions on that to the creators of the FAQ.

In the TiVo FAQ section, which you are asked to read before posting questions to this forum, there is a link to a web site for www.tvquest.com .... this is suppose to contain Tribune's current schedule and lineup data . However, I can not get to this Web site. Says that the page does not exist. Is this a valid web site URL ?

TVQuest does appear to be defunct. Zap2It has Tribune data and lineups also.

If you mean the amount TiVo jumps back when you go from FF to play, take a look at Otto's backdoor code list. He mentions how to modify it in there: Codes

There is a need to update some info in the FAQ.

The 800# for Philips re: Remote Replacement issue is invalid :(. The one given to me by Tivo support is:

877-459-5415

Unfortunately, it is always busy! Does anyone else have a working number for the Philips Remote Replacement issue?


:( :( :(
