I've checked the FAQs, and I can't find an answer to this question.

Got everything set up, and it went beautifully. Now I just have one question:

Is there any way to change the title or information of a program?

If, for example, zap2it is unhelpful enough to label 6 upcoming programs "Figure skating" -- mixing up various events of Canadian nationals and U.S. nationals -- and you would like to label a program by the more informative: "Canadian nationals: Pairs short program." It makes it incredibly hard to figure out whether you're grabbing everything, too.

Or, at the very least, can these be renamed when you're transferring to DVD?

Thanks.

There is no support for changing the title on the TiVo. My guess would be that if you are using either a built-in DVD recorder or TiVoToGo to burn a DVD that the displayed menu cannot have its title changed either.

If you have "hacked" your TiVo to enable adding hobbyist software such as TiVoWebPlus, then the title can be changed.

Once you've done a basic hack of the Tivo, a formidable-sounding task but really not so much, you can make a number of easy user modifications. Editing titles is one of them.

There is a way to do this albeit a laborious one. Transfer the file to your computer through TiVo2Go. There, you can rename the file in your folder to whatever you want. Finally, transfer it back.
