1. TiVo Remote Control Hacks > 10. Sorting the Now Playing List

Sorting the Now Playing List

If you want the sorting abilities of OS 4.0 while still using OS 3.x, then this hack is for you.

One of the major new features of TiVo OS 4.0 is the ability to sort the Now Playing list in more ways than just the default reverse-chronological order. OS 4.0 also allows you to sort the items in the list by expiration date or in alphabetical order.

This sorting ability is actually built into OS 3.0 too; you’ll just need to enable the backdoor hack. To enable sorting, enter the following remote control sequence at the Now Playing screen:

After the three thumbs-up rings, a menu bar at the bottom of the Now Playing list will appear, stating “Press ENTER for sort options.” When you press Enter, your TiVo will zoom to a Now Playing Options screen, presenting you with the ability to sort by Newest (by record date), Expiration (by expiration date), or Alphabetical (by program name). You can also simply hit 1, 2, or 3 at the Now Playing screen as a shortcut to sort by those same options.
