TiVo has partnered with Yahoo! to provide online scheduling via Yahoo! TV. One must link a Yahoo! account with a TiVo web account to utilize the service. While this new scheduling functionality is redundant, Yahoo! provides an easily browsed grid guide which is conspicuously absent from TiVo’s site. Previously, TiVo and AOL had a similar online scheduling relationship.

- Yahoo! and TiVo have partnered to give you the ultimate remote control: the Web!
- Now you can schedule recordings on your TiVo® box from any internet connection.
- From any Yahoo! TV episode page, just click “Record to my TiVo box”.
Your request will be automatically sent to your home the next time your TiVo box connects. Please allow one hour if your TiVo is connected to broadband through your home network, 36 hours if your TiVo uses dialup.
