Geek Tip: Download Mini Shows with TivoCast

Did you know you can use your TiVo and an internet connection to download cool content from the web? TiVoCasts are short, cool features that only last about five to ten minutes, so they don't take up too much space on your TiVo's hard drive.
My favorites are ThreadBanger (alternative craft and sewing projects), Ultra Kawaii (adorable pet videos — what? It's a guilty pleasure), The Onion, (hilarious short news clips from the seminal newspaper), and Break.com (viral videos popular on the Internet that week). To get your TiVoCasts, just go to "Find Programs" from your TiVo home screen. Click on "TiVoCasts" and you can search categories or for the name of TiVoCast. You can also do it online, too!

TiVoCasts show up on your "Now Playing" screen with all your shows and most are on a weekly schedule. Oh and did I mention, it's totally free with your TiVo subscription?!

And now with TiVo Desktop Plus 2.6 you can get pretty much any video podcast on your TiVo. It is great - but also evil because now I'm watching FAR TOO MANY vidcasts because it is just so easy to do, and watching it on my TV is so much better than watching on my laptop.
