This feature is available on:
What you’ll see in the Discovery Bar depends on you! Often, the Discovery Bar displays ideas for show you might like based on what shows you record and mark as your favorites. For example, if you record the show “American Idol,” the Discovery Bar might display thumbnails for other shows, like “So You Think You Can Dance.” It all depends on what you’re interested in and what’s available to you.
The Discovery Bar is also displays lots of other great viewing options: popular shows or sports events that are playing on live TV, items from your My Shows list, new video on demand shows, and more!
The Video Window is located in the upper right corner of the TiVo Central screen and most other TiVo menu screens, unless you choose to turn it off or temporarily hide it. The Video Window continues playing the show you were watching when you entered the TiVo Central screen.
