CNET on TiVo

Nice little feature on TiVo at CNET's website today: http://reviews.cnet.com/4520-10165_...?tag=cnetfd.ld. Discuss lots of things like backdoors for Series 1, 30 sec skip, and shortcuts. Also has some links to other TiVo articles.

One mistake... You don't need to turn on backdoors to enable sorting. If that's all he was going to show, then he could have skipped a bunch of steps.

yeah, but its for the benefit of 3.x software (DirectTiVo users). I think the video mentions this as well, that 4.0 already has it built in.

I know it was for 3.0. However even in 3.0 you can simply go into Now Playing and enter the SORT command. Backdoors do NOT need to be enabled first.
