Your TiVo Experience
The TiVo® Experience gives you access to robust entertainment options. Here’s where you can find helpful tools to get the most from your TiVo® DVR – including how the system works, how to use it and how to troubleshoot if you run into issues.
Watch this video and check out the links below on how to get the most out of your TiVo experience.
Add up to four TiVo® Mini devices to TVs in your home, and you can pause a show in one room and play it in another – giving you a true whole home experience. When you use your TiVo Mini, you’re actually streaming your shows from your main TiVo DVR. Use your TiVo Mini the same way as you would use your main DVR: search your My Shows list, pause, rewind, skip ahead and more.
Most Midco customers will see the newer TiVo® Experience on their DVR – though some older TiVo devices don’t support the newest update.1
