Organizing programs in the Now Playing List

Print this page


If you are using TiVo with SD menus, all of your recorded and downloaded programming can be found in the Now Playing List.

NOTE: Have TiVo with HD Menus? See Organizing programs in My Shows.

In the Now Playing List, you can choose to:

  • List all recordings individually, or arrange Season Pass, WishList Search, TiVo Suggestion, and HD recordings in Groups (folders).
  • List programs and groups alphabetically, or by the date recorded (with the latest recordings at the top of the list).
  • Delete an entire folder by pressing CLEAR on your TiVo remote.

About Groups

Turning on groups puts like programs into folders. For example, a folder will be created for each Season Pass when more than one episode appears in the Now Playing List.

A program can appear in more than one folder. For example, if you have a Season Pass to a series that stars an actor for whom you also have an auto-recording WishList, the title of each episode will appear in a group for the Season Pass and in a group for the WishList. There is only one actual recording on the hard disk, however, so if you delete a program from one folder, it is deleted from all folders.

NOTE: If you accidentally delete a program, you can recover it if you act quickly. For instructions, see How Do I Recover a Deleted Program?
