Using Your DVR From Afar

The whole point of using a digital video recorder is convenience.
Rather than arranging your schedule around television shows, you watch
what you want when it's best for you. But you may be running out the
door for a weeklong trip, forgetting to plot out which shows will air
while you're gone. Or you might learn of a new series or show while at
work, unable to get home in time to record it.

This week, I was reminded of how setting my TiVo digital video
recorder to record programs can be done more conveniently: through
remote online access. I did so using two methods: TiVo Inc.'s own Web
service, TiVo Central Online at, and Sling Media Inc.'s
downloadable SlingPlayer software program, which works when Slingbox
hardware is attached to your television. Other remote recording
solutions also are available using computer-based programs.
