Missed that last line? Subscriber Stephen R. suggests you take advantage
of closed-captioning and the TiVo® instant replay button to ensure
you catch it the second time around. "After you read what they said,
you can turn the CC off and continue watching," he explains. "Many
TVs nowadays have a ‘CC on when volume muted’ option so you can easily
turn on and off the CC just by pressing the mute button." (Bonus
tip: Use CC and press the FWD button once to speed through slow, dialogue-heavy
parts of programs like the news, opening monologues of talk shows, etc.,
and still get all the good stuff. You’ll be able to read the dialogue
and finish the program in nearly half the time! When you want to hear
something real time, just hit instant replay.)

been a good scary hour-long drama — with the exception of Lost (on
some nights)," says Chris K. from Menlo Park, CA. "Supernatural
looks to be changing that. On the surface, it might seem like another WB
teen pin-up show about brothers with an X-Files subplot. But it is in fact
the only truly exciting adventure hour on TV right now. Former X-Files staff
work on it and the two leads are engaging and likeable." Find out if
it’s super-natural to enjoy an episode yourself and schedule a recording.

I warned you good things were coming as soon as this fall if you connect
your TiVo® box to your home network. And sure enough… running
from October 1st-8th, look for a new menu item on TiVo Central called "Exclusive
Navy Football with CSTV!" The Showcase makes it easy for you to schedule
a recording of the upcoming Navy-Air Force football game to air on CSTV**,
but there’s more:
- You’ll have the option to download an additional hour’s worth of
exclusive bonus content, including interviews with coaches and players,
season highlights, a documentary on Navy football, and a documentary
on the 1963 season with Roger Staubach!
- Plus, you’ll even get game highlights and post-game materials a few
days after the whistle’s blown.
now so you don’t miss the next exciting opportunity to get more with
Just so you know… Showcase content, including video, does not reduce the recording capacity of your TiVo DVR, nor does it tie up your phone line. Be sure your TiVo DVR is connected to your home network or plugged into your phone line to receive TiVo Showcases. Depending on your DVR model, programming source and schedule, some customers may not have access to Showcase video programming.
Talk about cash when you need it most…the first of 17 winners in our "Passion
Pays Off" Sweepstakes is Larry R. from Florida, who got the news of
his $1,000 winnings in the midst of an Ophelia evacuation.
You could win, too! Every time you successfully refer someone to the TiVo®

entered in a weekly, random drawing for a chance to win $1,000.

mind "Jeopardy." William O. from Timberlake, NC claims the TiVo®
service has made watching every TV show a game: "While watching our
favorite shows, we like to play TiVo Blooper Challenge. A game played
by two or more players. When you see a blooper be the first person to
announce "TiVo Blooper Challenge." The person with the remote
then rewinds the show to a point a few seconds before the contested blooper.
For example, a blooper could be when a person on the show is reading a
birthday card and then in the next shot you see them open the card. Or
scenes being out of order. If upon review, the other player(s) agree you
found a blooper, then you win the remote. Everyone at my house enjoys
using the TiVo remote. This is a nice way to share the fun." size="2">
