Subscribe to a podcast on TiVoYou can subscribe to audio podcasts on your TiVo and then listen to them over your home theater. Here's how!
Hi, there, I?m Molly Wood, here with a Quick Tip on how to subscribe to podcasts on your Tivo. This works for standalone Series2 and up TiVos that are connected to the broadband Internet. You can subscribe to pretty much any video podcast you want and watch it on your TV instead of on your tiny iPod screen or your computer. Here?s what to do. Press the TiVo button on your remote, and then choose Music, Photos, and Showcases. Scroll way down to Podcaster, here. You?ll find some podcasts pre-loaded and you just select them to subscribe. But if you want something that is MYSTERIOUSLY NOT LISTED under, say, Science and Tech. Oh, I don?t know, like the Buzz Report. Then you?ll have to choose this wonderful option: Enter a URL. Now, remember, the URL you?re entering isn?t a specific link to the show. You need the subscription URL. Often, but not always, it ends in XML. In the case of, say, the Buzz Report, you?ll find it by going to podcast.cnet.com, click the RSS button, and then use the link that?s meant to be put into podcast software. So, let?s type that in here ? And that?s it. Now your video podcasts will show up on your TiVo as soon as a new episode is released. And you can enjoy all the Buzz Report you want. For CNET.com, I?m Molly Wood, and you?re welcome.
