Backup settings to VCR
After reading a post about someone who lost all of their data recently, and the fact that many folks have asked for someway to backup the setup info on their Tivos, this "solution" popped into my head. Its not really a backup, but its a way to record all the info on the Tivo easily.
Just put a tape in the VCR, start it recording the Tivo output and then sit with the remote and go through all the important Tivo menus. Display each of your season passes & wishlists, page through your channel lineup, etc. Pause for a few seconds on each screen so you can really see what's there. When your done, stick the tape somewhere safe and if you every have to redo the Tivo setup for any reason, at least you'll have a definitive copy of what it looked like. Of course, you may need to update the tape periodically depending on how many changes you make, but its better than writing it all down.
