Setting up OnePass on your TiVo

First, find a show you'd like to create a OnePass for:

  1. If you know the show title, actor name, channel, or even keyword you want finding it is easy!
  2. From Tivo Central®, select 'Search, OnePass, & Manage' then choose 'Search.'
  3. The next screen has a grid of letters. Use the arrow buttons on your TiVo remote to move around the grid, then press SELECT to choose a letter.
  4. As you select letters, a list of possible matches sorted by popularity appears on the right. For example, if you enter the letters HOW, you might see matches for the TV show "How I Met Your Mother," the on-demand movie "How To Lose A Guy In Ten Days," and the director Ron Howard. Results are sorted by popularity, with more popular matches appearing higher in the list.
  5. Keep selecting letters until you see what you're searching for. If you make a mistake, press CLEAR to erase everything, or press REWIND to erase one letter at a time. Insert a space by pressing FAST FORWARD.
  6. Keep selecting letters until you see what you're searching for. If you make a mistake, press CLEAR to erase everything, or press REWIND to erase one letter at a time. Insert a space by pressing FAST FORWARD.
  7. When you see what you're looking for, use the RIGHT arrow to move to the right side of the screen, highlight the show or person name, and press SELECT to view the information screen.
  8. Select "Get this show" to record the next showing or to set up a OnePass.

 

Select your recording and OnePass options:

To use the default options simply highlight “Use these OnePass options” on the left side and press select to finalize.

Choose from the available options to change how your recordings are handled:

  • Include: Choose to include recordings, streaming videos (from sources like Netflix, Hulu, HBO Go, and more), or both in your OnePass results. Remember, streaming videos don’t take up any disk space (OnePass only).
  • Start from: Choose a starting season for the OnePass (e.g., current season, season 1, or new episodes only).
  • Rent or buy: Decide whether to include episodes that need to be purchased before viewing. Note that the TiVo Service will not purchase the items for you; you will have the option to purchase them at the time of viewing (OnePass only).
  • Record: Skip reruns or watch them all? Choose ‘New only’ to avoid reruns. (Recordings only.)
  • Get in HD: Choose how often to get the HD version of a show: always, never, or if possible. Note that if you choose ‘always’ and a show is not available in HD, it won’t be recorded. Likewise, if you choose ‘never’ and a show is only available in HD, it won’t be recorded (Recordings only).
  • Keep at most: Set the maximum number of recordings to be saved (Recordings only).
  • Keep until: Choose how long to keep recordings (Recordings only).
  • Start recording: Start recording up to ten minutes before a show is scheduled to begin (Recordings only; available only before recording starts).
  • Stop recording: Set a recording to continue - for a few minutes or up to three hours - after it’s scheduled to end. You can change this setting when you set up the recording, or while the recording is in progress (Recordings only).
