Do that but it is a waste of time.

And now my laptop has a SSD it is a waste of read write cycles.

Overall, I like the Tivo Premiere, but for me all these screens and functions are a bit overkill..... and feel the same way towards Microsoft's latest operating systems, namely 8.1 and Windows 10. To each his own......
But the time spent posting here is about the time it takes to read the manual.

Don't know if Tivo can do this, but in any case, perhaps I should re-name my AVS Forum handle "Pointless OCD".

When I first got a TiVo I had trouble figuring out how to "stop" a recording. I finally figured out that the 'Live TV' button stops the recording. The left arrow will take you back one screen but the recording doesn't stop, and will continue playing in the small video window. You still have to press 'Live TV' to actually stop it. 'Live TV' stops the recording immediately, marking the spot where you left off.

If you use the Netflix app, then you have to re-learn how to stop that recording. 'Live TV' will stop it, but takes you clear out of the Netflix app. I finally figured out that the up arrow will "stop" a playing Netflix movie, and leave you in the Netflix app.

You, like many others new to TiVo, bemoan the lack of a stop button on the remote. But you, like the others, always fail to say what exactly you want the stop button to do. That may seem like a foolish statement but it really isn't. We went through this in another TiVo thread and ask a bunch of people what they want the stop button to do and they will give you an assortment of answers.

The neat thing about TiVo is that it may not have a stop button but it generally has a button to do the assorted things people want their stop button to do. One simply has to learn how the unit works by using it. I use a Harmony remote and lo and behold it has a stop button. I never bothered programming it for my TiVo because anything I would want it to do as a stop button would be redundant with another button on the TiVo that does it already.

The bitterness of poor quality lasts long after the sweetness of the low price is forgotten . . . life is too short to drink bad wine
