TIVO Recorder - How to Program your TIVO to record TV shows via the Internet

TIVO series 2 recorder

If you have TiVo service directly with TiVo (sorry DirecTV DVR doesn’t work) you can benefit by using the internet to automatically have your TiVo be programmed remotely for recording shows.  

TiVo is a popular way to record television.  What is good about TiVo is that you can pick your television shows and movies to record for you and you can watch them when you have a chance.  You can rewind live TV and even pause it so you don’t miss anything.  TiVo records the television to a hard drive making it easy to navigate through multiple recordings.  If programming times change TiVo knows to record the show at a different time.  While VCR’s have programming features it does not offer many of the features of TiVo.


TiVo is great if you hate to watch commercials on television, you can fast forward through them.  You also have a complete listing of television shows and this makes it easier to find television programming that would be of interest to you.

Navigating by your remote control can be frustrating at times when you are browsing the list.  If you are looking through the guide you might find that if you have a lot you want to set up to record you might like the feature of programming your TiVo online.

You can program you TiVo by going to their website or you can sign up with Yahoo! to configure it into part of MyYahoo!.  You need to have a series 2 TiVo recorder which will allow you to record two channels at the same time.  The online scheduling is set up for the series 2 recorders.  If you go onto tivo.com you will see online scheduling on the left side of the menu bar.


You will need to sign up and create an account with TiVo. They will confirm you are the owner of the equipment by sending a message directly to your TiVo.  You will then confirm the referenced information.  Once you have set this up you will be able to log into their online schedule and be able to pick and chose which programs you want to be recorded while you are browsing online.  TIVO will automatically update your requests for you in your equipment and you never had to use the remote to set up the recording.

Unfortunately the built in TiVo on DirectTV does not support this feature at this time.  You can however log into DirecTV’s website and search and browse the schedule listed on their website.  You can then program the shows from your remote control.


You might want to checkout tvguide.com for listings as well you can specify your area and whether you have cable or satellite TV.  They offer a good set of recommendations and descriptions are well presented.
