OMG -I cannot even do ordinary reminders on my i phone let alone on my smart TVs which are not all that smart at all!

I have seen this option on the TV's however I switch them off at the power point at night so probably would miss them anyway as do not watch that much TV anymore due to the pathetic programmes that are on, and have been for a while.

No, I prefer either streaming services or on-demand video. That way I still get to watch tv on my schedule but I don't have to worry about remembering to set-up a reminder.
I don't, but, but mum does, and I find them really annoying because they often turn her TV on when no one is there to watch it, or change channel before you've finished watching your previous programme.
I would if I knew HOW to program the remote!
So instead I have to send reminders by email - BUT I need to have the laptop infront of me to get the reminder! Very annoying.
VCR was much easier to use.
All the time. My husband and I both do. We were a little surprised when one day we returned home and unexpectedly found the TV on untl we realised the reminders truned it on automatically. Oops.
No, but I always regret it when I don't and I've missed something because I'm either in the kitchen, or doing anything but considering the programme I wanted to watch.

I will be setting some now, thanks for the reminder!
Glad I could help. :)

Yes I do it helps a lot. I often do other things while the TV is on so reminders are quite useful in not missing stuff I want to see.
Yes I do. I sometimes forget so as soon as I see a show I want to watch I make a reminder.

My 'reminder' is auto-setting the VHS Tape/VCR, to tape a tv programme for me.

I don't 'live watch' tv, as way too many adverts., so with tape, I can not only time-shift, but also fast fwd. the ads!

All positive!


NO, we certainly don't know how to 'set reminders'! As for the tv ads? We change channels, until the ads have finished, or I'll & to the kitchen & do something in there, during the ad breaks. Some of the shows, have an ad break every 6 or 7 minutes! Ugh!

No - if anything I put it on my phone with a reminder but that would be only if there was a particular show I wanted to see; otherwise I watch the shows like or put a dvd on.
