Talking "watched program" marker

One great thing about TiVo is that many programs can be stored on the same unit, and they can be watched in any order. However, with a long list of programs, I don't know if a program has already been watched from the "now showing" listing. It would be nice if a flag can be set after a program has been played back, with the user option to clear that flag (for deletion priority). When TiVo needs space for new programs, the watched programs can be deleted before unwatched "yellow exclamation" programs. This feature would allow me to keep my recordings as long as possible, without having to delete watched programs to keep the listing organized.

This is a great idea. Ideally, TiVo would accommodate "watched program" markers for multiple users (ie "family TiVo"). That way, I won't save a program for someone else in my household to watch if they've already watched it. Once all users have watched a show, it's ready to be deleted sooner than shows that haven't been watched by everyone.

I agree that a watched program indicator would be nice, and even better if it could handle multiple 'users'.

Further, I would like to see the multiple users concept extended to suggestions. With indicators as to who's suggestions caused a program to be recorded. As more storage is available, this becomes more of an issue.

And if there were multiple users, would you need permission to delete another users recorded programs? This regardless if watched, or not.

Something else to watch out for, sometimes I will 'watch' a show and then later want to record it to a VCR. (I don't watch it when I record it to VCR because I like to pause and/or repeat as needed while watching.) If the 'watched' indicator was automatic, I would like to be able to reset it so that my wife did not think I was done with it and delete the program before I could 'save to VCR'.
