1. TiVo Remote Control Hacks > 17. Enabling Advanced WishLists

Enabling Advanced WishLists

Advanced WishLists allow you to specify combinations of actors, titles, and so forth for TiVo to find and record.

TiVo’s WishLists, while being pretty powerful, are limited in how granular you can get. You can ask for shows only by actor, title, director, category, or keyword—not a combination of two or more. Advanced WishLists bring the “and” to WishLists, allowing you to specify movies directed by so-and-so, starring what’s-his-name.

It’s not clear why TiVo exposes the Advanced WishList system—perhaps because it cannot be explained in the two to three sentences the make-it-simple philosophy the TiVo requires.

To activate the Advanced menu off the Search Using WishLists menu, start the Node Navigator
