1. TiVo Remote Control Hacks > 16. Activating the Node Navigator

Activating the Node Navigator

Surf through all TiVo’s menus—even a few you can’t usually see—via this backdoor menu system.

Perhaps you want fine-grained control of overshoot protection [Hack #12]. Or maybe you want to access the advanced functionality in the WishLists [Hack #17]. To get to either of these means poking about into menus where the sun doesn’t usually shine.

This is the ultimate rabbit hole through the system; this is TiVo’s internal representation of where everything is. Every menu screen in the system, whether standard or otherwise hidden, is represented by a menu node. Each one of the menu nodes you see in Figure 1-6 will zip you straight to its respective menu screen on the system. What makes this particularly difficult is that the nodes are numbered, not named, which may cause you to end up in the wrong node. More than just a nuisance, this can actually make alterations to the way your TiVo software works.
