3. The TiVo Shell > 45. Save Multiple Shows at a Time to Your VCR

Save Multiple Shows at a Time to Your VCR

Dumping multiple shows in succession to your VCR is impossible with the default TiVo interface, but this is nothing a little hacking can’t get around.

Ever want to save more than one television show from your TiVo to your VCR? You have to save one, wander off for the length of the show, come back, save the next . . . lather, rinse, repeat. All you really want to do is set your VCR to record for 8 hours—the length of a VHS tape at EP quality—tell your TiVo to play those 8 one-hour shows in succession, and leave the TiVo and VCR alone. With the default TiVo interface, you just can’t do that.

But using a little hacking in the form of a batch save script, you can.
