Suggestions for your Tivo 3 Series

Competition is creeping up with many companies making their own DVRs. I've tried almost all of them. I can say this much. Tivo is easy and fun to use. Here are my suggestions that would make Tivo an even better match for the home user.

A)Dual Tuners....Sounds like a pain in the ass, but the cable company (Time Warne) has Scientific Atlanta DVRs. Can't say they are the greatest thing on earth. But the one thing that got me hooked was the ability to record 2 shows at the same time.

B)Suggest an alternate time of recording. I noticed that if you choose to record something and it's going to interfere with the time of another recording, tivo will let you know. It would be nice to have tivo search for another time or day that same episode, show or movie will be on see if it can schedule it then.

C)DVD-R Capability. I know Pioneers done it already and Sony has one that can do it to tape(terribly I might add). How bout a standard one now. Specially since DVD-R burners are dropping in price or make it USB compatible with the Tivo. That's what USB is for!

D)Portability-I heard that you folks are already at work on this one. Trying to work out some kind of "rights management" scheme tho. Can't wait to see this go portable since that is where it's headed.

E)User Surveys on the Tivo-Wha? bug the common Tivo user? Well, I know you can tell our viewing habits and such, but what about what the common user is thinking. Make it optional so it doesn't twist the viewers arm.

Doesn't a Season Pass do this already? I know when "3rd Watch" was still on on Fridays, my TiVo would grab the rerun of the new "Touching Evil" at midnight instead of the 9pm showing, since "3rd Watch" had a higher priority.

No, when you schedule someting and there is a conflict it will show what conflicts and give you the option to override that by setting that Season Pass as a higher priority.

The OP is looking for TiVo to tell you at that time there is another showing and potentially give you additional options.

Or I am completly off base, which if true just ignore what I said.
