TiVo Home, your entertainment headquarters.

The starting point for the TiVo Roamio OTA VOX™ experience is the TiVo Home screen. Get there by pressing the TiVo button on the top of your remote. From here, you can go to My Shows, where you’ll find all your recorded and streaming content, or browse for something new to watch. Even better, you can do it all using your voice! The Home screen is also where you can manage your OnePass™ requests, see what’s scheduled to record, or customize your experience.

Complete control with the power of your voice.

The TiVo VOX Remote™ takes the functionality of the classic TiVo remote and adds a super power: voice control. The VOX Remote lets you speak naturally and gives you the ability to narrow your search results as you go. Search for shows, tune to a channel, ask for recommendations... it's all on the tip of your tongue.

Here are some things you can do with voice:

•    Tune to a channel: “Watch HGTV.”

•    Browse for something specific: Start with "Show me Chevy Chase movies." When you see the resilts, narrow your search: "from the '80's, on Amazon."

•    Tell the remote to “Skip it” for skip-enabled shows and jump past the commercials instantly.

•    Look for shows on your favorite apps: “Show me kids’ shows on Netflix.”

•    Search for a genre or your favorite star: “Are there any cooking shows with Paul Hollywood?”

•    You can even ask for your favorite sports team: “When are the Warriors playing?”

Watch at your own pace.

The SkipMode™ and QuickMode™ features give you more control than ever before over your entertainment experience.    


The TiVo Roamio OTA VOX skips entire commercial breaks with the sound of your voice on certain recorded shows. Just say “Skip it” to jump past the commercials.1 If you like buttons, you can also press the SKIP button on your remote to use the SkipMode feature. You’ll know SkipMode is available on a show a few minutes after a show has finished recording — just look for the SKIP icon next to the show title in My Shows.


What channels and times are eligible for SkipMode? See complete list.



QuickMode lets you watch recorded shows and sports 30% faster than normal speed — without the sound getting squirrely on you. It’s great for getting through the dull stuff without missing any of the action. When you’re watching a recorded show, turn QuickMode on by pressing PLAY then pressing SELECT when the TrickPlay™ bar appears.
