There are 4 ways to find shows and movies that are in line with your interests:
TiVo® WishList® Search is the ultimate way to find shows and movies on your favourite topics, actors and teams. For example, if you're interested in a specific actor, you can create a WishList® Search that will constantly search for him or her in the background and set your TiVo® PVR to record every movie or show he appears in.
To refine your search, you can enter keywords, actors, titles, directors, and genre or category of programming.
If you’re in the mood for a comedy, drama, action movie or TV show, but not sure what to watch, you can use TiVo®'s browse feature to see what’s on in a specific genre or category. Or, you can explore our many themed collections.
To do this, follow these steps:
This feature gives you access to the most popular shows, movies, sports and kids’ entertainment available to watch right now. Accessible from the TiVo® Central screen, the What to Watch Now feature may just become your go-to destination when you get home, instead of the channel guide.
TiVo® Suggestions get to know your preferences based on what you record and how you rate shows. As a result, this feature will select shows and movies you might like, and will record them automatically.
Use the and buttons on the TiVo® remote to rate shows through the TiVo® Service from Cogeco. You can give a program up to 3 thumbs up or down.
Good to know:
All of your suggestions will appear in the TiVo® Suggestions folder in the menu on the left. The Suggestions are identified with a TiVo® icon.
To review or edit how you’ve rated shows using the and buttons on your remote, go to the Suggestions folder.
There, you’ll find a list of recordings. At the bottom of the list, select the option Improve my TiVo® Suggestions, which will take you to a list of all your rated titles. You can then select a title, and add or remove thumb ratings using the and buttons.
You can select which categories of content you would like to appear in the Discovery Bar by following the steps below:
After you reset your ratings, it may take a few days before TiVo® starts suggesting programs again.
Don't forget to use the and buttons to rate shows and movies. If no shows are rated, TiVo® will only have the keywords of the titles you record to rely on; e.g. “cartoons”, “action”, and “renovation”.
