It's easy to set our FIOS "cable box" (QIP 6200-2) to turn on at a certain time, and tune to a specific channel, via the "reminder" feature of the program guide. And that's great for the occasional one-time specials we don't want to miss.
But, like most people, there are certain shows we want to watch EVERY WEEK.
So why is it so hard (impossible, apparently) to set weekly recurring reminders?
This isn't rocket science, and this isn't a new idea. Believe it or not, this was possible long ago, back when cable-TV was delivered via --- an actual cable!
