TiVo is a digital video recorder, which provides an electronic television programming schedule. The features of the schedule include "Season Pass" schedules which record every new episode of a series, and "WishList" searches which allow the user to find and record shows that match their interests by title, actor, director, category, or keyword. TiVo also provides a range of features when the TiVo DVR is connected to a home network, including film and television show downloads, advanced search, personal photo viewing, music offerings, and online scheduling.

The inconvenient of TiVo is it requires you to find a Media Access Key buried deep within the TiVo’s menus and enter that to pair a device. What’s worse, this pairing process doesn’t connect with your TiVo account. If you want to program your TiVo while out of the house, there’s a separate account and credentialing process.
