Last night, after fooling with my TiVo for almost two weeks, I managed to get the guide data working thanks to the fine folks at TiVo Canada. This morning, after waiting the required 8 hours for the TiVo to index all the data it got in overnight, I have a fully functional, completely guided TiVo for the first time ever. I set up season passes based on shows I like, and I even created a wishlist to search for my favourite episode of Buffy The Vampire Slayer (Once more…with feeling).

I gave it a thumbs up when the 90’s show was on Much Music, and a thumbs down to the Tony Danza show. Now we’ll get to see what the full power of the TiVo is all about. If I loved it before when it was a crippled digital VCR, I can’t wait to find out how it works as a fully functional unit!
