1. TiVo Remote Control Hacks > 15. Viewing “Hidden” Recordings

Viewing “Hidden” Recordings

Display previews, Showcase content, and advertising in the Now Playing list.

TiVo holds more than just your preferred programming; it also records content for its Showcase and the advertisements that periodically show up on the main TiVo Central screen. TiVo, Inc. contracts with some cable companies to provide this content late at night, and then instruct your TiVo to record it.

This hack lists this half hour or so of programming as “Teleworld Paid Program” in the Now Playing list.

Tip

Remote control hacks are often context-sensitive. If you paid attention carefully, you’ll notice that this sequence of remote button presses is the same as the sequence used to display TiVo’s suggestions in the To Do List [Hack #14]. The sequence has an entirely different effect when applied on the Now Playing screen.
