A screen that displays, in chronological order, upcoming scheduled
recordings (e.g. 10 PM - "Law & Order - Ch 4; 11 PM - The Daily Show -
Ch 45; 11:30 PM - "M.A.S.H." - Ch 117), especially when shows are being
flagged for deletion to make space, and you're not sure what they'd be
replaced with. Scrolling through the alphabetized lsiting to check for
dates and times is too complicated, and my cable system has too many
channels to scroll through the entire programming grid to see what's
been chosen.

Yes, it would be nice to have, although the feature is in DVArchive
(although that software can be tricky to install, it;s worth it).

Aka a To Do list - this has come up many times.

And yes, it is very nice to have one of those.

Tony D will crucify you for that one ;-)
It's a TiVo thing so it must be bad.

I agree I would like a one page summary of what I am recording too. It is
probably not important if you only have the prime time lineup queued but if you
have themes set up for obscure shows you could come home to find you have a
hard drive full of some TVland marathon and you missed something you really
wanted to see. I know I can do a "find shows" on all of my themes after each
lineup update but that is not really a good answer.

The to-do list is nice but I can't figure out why Tivo people say the
words with reverance. I find it strange that people are mystified as to
what their machines will record. I would hazard to guess most Replayers
have multiple networked Replays and DVArchive which has powers and
abilities far beyond normal to-do lists. LOL

BTW don't hold your breath for any new software features. I think RTV 5x and
below is a dead product. If anything you will lose features although I think
Jack Valenti has backed off a bit on the IVS and CA "problem".
If RTV does get a strategic partner in the movie business this might change
tho.
In real life I doubt any of this will apply to the 5x and below. D&M wants to
sell new hardware, not prolong the life of old hardware.

Why don't you comment on things you know. Beta testing of 5.1 is
completed and a new beta starts soon.

So the right answer is 5000 and below?
Does the 5.1 beta work on 50x0s and 450xs?

I don't know about "Most" but I will tell you that in *MY* case
DVArchive (and the features that make it possible) were key factors in
my decision to REPLAY as opposed to that "T" word

It wasn't for me, since I hadn't heard of DVA then (although it's
certainly a reason to be glad I did). When I first bought a Replay
(one of the first 2020, with v1 software), TiVo was associated with
AOL (and "AOL" makes anything seem bad). Also, I didn't care for the
appearance of TiVo or the cartoonlike image they use.

I still wish the DVA docs would tell you about 239.255.255.250 so I
wouldn't have had to wait over a year for DVA to work.
