Let the fun begin


TiVo Central, your entertainment headquarters.

The starting point for the TiVo Roamio™ experience is TiVo Central. Get there by pressing the metallic TiVo button on the top of your remote. From here, you can go to My Shows to see everything your DVR has recorded; search and browse for something else to watch; see what’s scheduled to record on your To Do List; or manage your favorite OnePasses.


Entertainment in the palm of your hand.

With your TiVo remote control in hand, you can now search, discover and explore a vast universe of entertainment—all in just a few clicks. Get a feel for our innovative remote capabilities, like QuickMode, to help you master your entertainment experience.


QuickMode lets you enjoy recordings, and any shows or games you’re watching with a buffer, 30% faster than normal speed—without the sound getting squirrely on you. It’s great for getting through the dull stuff without missing any of the action. When you’re watching a recorded show, turn QuickMode on by pressing “Play”, then pressing “Select” when the TrickPlay™ bar appears.

See how QuickMode let’s you watch it all, but faster.
