Now's about the time I start thinking about planning a vacation for next year. Even if I can't afford to go anywhere, I love to research places I would want to go. You know where to look — books, magazines, the Internet, and TiVo! Yes, TiVo!
This ingenious and innovative tip is made possible by the Wishlist function (Wishlist, if you don't know, can be accessed when you're in the Find Programs & Downloads menu).
Add the name of a city you're interested in as a Wishlist, and set it to automatically record programs. TiVo will present you with shows that feature your possible vacation place, and you can bone up on your destination while relaxing on your couch!
