We’ve been DirecTV users since it began. When Tivo came along, that seemed like a natural extension. I frequently use the web to check the DirecTV listings but just discovered I can also program the Tivo via the web.
Let’s say I’m sitting here in the Coffee Zone, surfin’ and slurpin’ and see that there’s some special on HBO tonight but I won’t be home to watch or record. Just log in, find the channel and program, click the Record to Receiver link and you’re set.
