Interesting and informative Q&A thread over on the TiVo Community Forum from Keir at Virgin Media.

I'm hoping they make an update so that if my TiVo is recording a suggestion it will record from the HD channel and not the SD equivalent. Had my box since Wednesday and loving it but all my suggestions are being recorded in SD even when there is an HD version!! same with wish lists on auto record. Lots of SD recordings when there are HD versions available. Can't seem to find a setting that will change it so that it will always take the HD version.

Agree,But it does start to notice that you are only recording HD Channels,I still get a few SD but a lot more are now suggesting the HD versions.Really do need a option.
Regards wishlist when setting for eg i did psychoville if you move down to category it gives you options and one of them is HD and its works.It set mine for bbc hd on the 5th may at 10

Found a facility I like..... Recording from Radio.

Not just any Radio - Radio 4 Xtra, so I can record complete series of Dick Barton + McLevy + Rumpole et al.

V+ wouldn't do this - I'm well chuffed.

In case i have missed anything, is there a way to be able to set up a series link or wish list which only records series from the beginning?

Example, I have never seen Scrubs and want to watch it from the beginning not half way through a series. I have noticed ComedyHD have series 1 episode 1 about to start. But when I select this episode and do a series link from it, it sets every Scrubs episode to record, anything from series 1 to series 9. I don't want it random like that.

I also find even when I put 1 thumbs down on something in the discovery bar, it continues to appear on there. Even after a couple of days......
Is this possible?

I also am looking forward to reminders, being able to always get HD recorded if a suggestion is available to be recorded in HD, a programme stops when you press stop and not having to pause first and would like the predictive text on demand like when you search and browse for things.
