Not sure this has been covered, but it would be cool to check and do things to your todo list online at work so to speak. Similarly to checking your Netflix queue online and rearranging things, i.e. richer access to your Tivo features remotely or outside of your home network.

Yeah, a long time request has been an Opt-In system for people to have their units upload personal info to TiVo Central Online. Right now TiVo doesn't do it because their privacy policy forbids them from uploading any personal information to their servers. But it would be nice if users had a way to opt-in to having their To Do list, ratings, etc, available online.

In addition to this, when you have your tivo's networked, why couldn't you be able to pick shows to record from a tv guide type of menu (from tivo central) instead of looking at each channel individually. Kinda like recording from the guide menu on your tv.

I'd love to see these type of features just available from a networked computer in my house.

It would be nice to have an interface (even one similar to what is on the TiVo) available via a web browser so that I could make changes to season passes, etc. Right now all that is available is the list of programmes currently stored on the TiVo.

I get that through Yahoo TV, the whole grid of my listings. The minimum time it takes from setting the program to record to actual recording on TiVo was only 20 minutes, i.e., the program starts in 15 minutes and you just sent a record message, you would only miss the 1st 5 minutes.

I know that I would find it helpful to be able to view my TODO list online while I am picking programs from the TV listings from the TiVo site. I mean since you would have to log into your acct before you could select the program you wanted to have recorded, I don't see why it wouldn't be possible to have the TODO list availible.

Because that would require specific data from your TiVo box, and a lot of it, and it would be timely. It would take a lot of resources to pull and store that data from every Tivo, and keep it secure.

I think something like tivo to go software could do this on your home network and not need to SEND personal data. Also having this set up on a Networked PC would allow central control over multiple TiVo to do lists. This could also help avoid conflicts ( a second TiVo could record the conflicted show)

Maybe Tivo could make the http on the box more robust and then you could just use DNS and router changes to view the information you are requesting.
