1. TiVo Remote Control Hacks > 7. What’s Your TiVo Doing?

What’s Your TiVo Doing?

Out of the corner of your eye, you see TiVo’s red light flicker on. Ever wonder just what your TiVo is up to?

The red light on the front of the TiVo box always raises some curiosity. “Just what is it doing? I didn’t think there was anything on right now it should be recording.”

The most obvious way to find out is to go to your Now Showing screen to check out what’s being recorded, signified by the red “recording” light next to a particular show. But that means interrupting what you’re currently watching. To most of us, that hardly seems like a worthwhile thing to do.

You can also peek into the mind of your TiVo. This hack overlays your currently playing show with a small information bar on the screen, which says things like Input0: InputRecording* 40 || Mode: COMPLETED (PlayRecording) when TiVo is recording—in this case, channel 40.
