Have you ever given yourself a giant forehead-smack because you forgot to schedule a TiVo recording? Of course, you can do it over the Web, but if that's not an option, try a mobile phone.
TiVo and Verizon Wireless have launched TiVo Mobile, an application that lets you schedule recordings on a Series2 or Series3 box from a cell phone. In order to download and run the app, you'll need a compatible Verizon Wireless phone, such as the Samsung SCH-a950, LG Chocolate, or LG VX8300, and you'll have to pay a $2.50 monthly fee.
The app features the same familiar TiVo interface, allowing you to browse program listings, as well as search for shows. It will also offer customizable channel lists, recommendations, and a view of the most popular/recorded shows.
