Benefits of TiVo service include but are by no means limited to: Season Pass (TiVo automatically finds and records every episode of a series all season long, even if the network schedule changes); TiVo Suggestions (the unit finds and records shows similar to your favorites); WishList (TiVo finds and records programs that feature your favorite actor, director, team, or even topic); Smart Recording (TiVo detects line-up changes for you and suggests programs to match your interests, if desired); Showcases (exclusive entertainment plus recording shortcuts from some of the most popular networks on TV); and TiVo Live TV guide (which provides listings for 14 days of programming).
For playback, a handy status bar shows you right where you are in a recorded program. A supplied multibrand remote operates key features on many brands of TVs and audio/video receivers. Connections include two sets of AV outputs, a single S-video output, and an RF (threaded coaxial) video input for cable or a local antenna. The unit is even software-upgradeable for compatibility with future features.
