    Morning All,

    Dumb question: How do you get teletext on TiVo. I'm pressing text button but get nothing.

    Thanks :confused:

    Teletext was switched off in 2009.. it's no more (although the brand still exists as a web site).

    Do you mean the red button? That's on its way, allegedly in the first quarter of the year.

    ??? does red button not work on a TiVo? It works brilliantly on a V+? So only menu access to i-player?and no BBC sports multiscreen? :confused:

    The more I hear seems to indicate that I was right to stick with V+ despite the "bargain upgradeto TiVo" I was offerred 6 months ago!

    Pressing the red button on the TiVo simply launches the iPlayer app.

    What I miss is the interactive & multiscreen. It seems TiVo just launches the BBC iplayer & nothing else. Fat lot of good that is????:(
