Tivo Self Install

July 3, 2019

WELCOME TO THE TIVO® EXPERIENCE!

The TiVo experience instantly gives you total control of the TV programming you love, and much more! The TiVo digital video recorder (DVR) also connects to the Internet and gives you access to an entire universe of on-demand movies, TV shows, and web videos (and you can stream shows from your TiVo DVR to every room in your home!).

Also, with six tuners and 150 hours of HD recording capacity (enough for 300 episodes of “Modern Family”), you can say good bye to recording conflicts! Press the TiVo button on your TiVo remote control to get to the TiVo Central® screen, the starting point for all of TiVo’s amazing features.

ONEPASS - YOUR TICKET TO LIMITLESS ENTERTAINMENT.

OnePass gathers every episode of a series available anywhere and adds them all right to your My Shows list. Now you can watch a series from beginning to end, or start on any episode or season you want. If it’s not available on TV or video on demand, OnePass fills in the gaps with episodes from providers like Netflix, Hulu, HBO GO, and Amazon.

To create a OnePass, find a show you want to watch, then choose “Create a OnePass.”

MY SHOWS. FIND. WATCH. REPEAT.

All of your recordings and streaming videos appear in the My Shows list. To get to the My Shows list from any menu screen or from live TV, just press the TiVo button twice. (Just press it once if you’re already on the TiVo Central screen.)

The My Shows list includes categories that make it easy to find what you want to watch fast. Want to see all the kids’ shows you’ve recorded? Select Kids. Or lists of TV shows or movies that don’t include kids’ shows? Select TV Series or Movies. Plus, ‘Video Providers’ takes you right to all of your video on demand options!

STREAMING SHOWS

With your TiVo DVR, you can easily stream shows to your iOS® device (iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod Touch®) using the TiVo app. (Streaming means watching a video directly from another device; there’s no need to wait for the video to transfer or download before watching it.)

You can also extend your TiVo experience into other rooms in your home with the TiVo Mini. The TiVo Mini lets you watch live TV and stream recorded shows from your TiVo DVR.

THE DISCOVERY BAR AND TIVO SUGGESTIONS - MAY WE MAKE A SUGGESTION?

TiVo is the only entertainment experience that understands what you like because only a DVR with the TiVo experience keeps track of your programming likes and dislikes and make suggestions accordingly.

TIVO SUGGESTIONS

You can rate any show — whether it’s live, recorded, or listed in the program guide — by pressing the THUMBS UP® or THUMBS DOWN® button on your remote. You can give a show up to three Thumbs Up (great!) or three Thumbs Down (terrible!). TiVo Suggestions uses these ratings to create a list of shows you might like. The more shows you rate over time, the better TiVo Suggestions will get at finding interesting shows for you.

THE DISCOVERY BAR

The Discovery Bar appears at the top of most TiVo screens. What you’ll see in the Discovery Bar depends on you! Often, the Discovery Bar displays ideas for shows you might like based on what shows you record and mark as your favorites. The Discovery Bar also displays lots of other great viewing options: popular shows or sports events that are playing on live TV, items from your My Shows list, TiVo Suggestions, new video on demand shows, and more!

QUICKMODE

QuickMode lets you watch a show 30% faster, while also letting you hear what everyone is saying! No chipmunks allowed. QuickMode is available while you’re watching a recorded show, or if you’re “behind” live TV (for instance, if you have rewound a show that’s airing live).

  • Just press PLAY to bring up the status bar, then SELECT to start QuickMode.
  • Press PLAY and SELECT again to watch at normal speed.
