Now if the clock setting will survive a re-boot that would be great as the 30s skip does now.
The update appeared today. It looks great, thanks for the hard work making the TiVo better.
Unfortunately, this does nothing meaningful on my TiVo. It aways switches my TiVo to channel 9.
I press the following on my slide remote:
SELECT - brings up the mini-guide overlaid on whatever's on TV
PLAY - dismisses the mini-guide and goes back to whatever's on TV
SELECT - brings up the mini-guide, again
9 - switches the mini-guide to channel 9
SELECT - changes the TiVo to channel 9
So now I'm on channel 9. I don't see a clock.
The detailed release notes are great - exactly what is needed to help get your heavy users back on board (of course I can only speak for myself).
The inclusion of this option is very welcome. I hated the fact that the fourth press of the FWD button was ignored. This is my favorite change to the software so far...
Try switching to the SD menus temporarily, play back a recorded show, and then try the SPS code. The mini-guide, etc. in the HD menus can lead to problems when trying to enter them.
Been stated several times. you need to hit select twice to start with
Wow, great seeing the release notes posted as well as the new Netflix and Youtube apps (and I don't even have a Premiere).
Don't see any mention of MP4.
It has been reported that the London Olympics will be broadcast in 3D.
Perhaps by ESPN3D which requires an MP4 capable Tivo Premiere.
There is no mention of MP4 capability for the Premiere although this post mentions that:
I can't seem to be able to get to all my subscriptions in the YouTube app. The UI is weird. I use the right arrow to go to subscriptions, click select button and it immediately starts playing the first video in my first subscription. I tried going to info with the up arrow at that point but it has no visible way to go,to any other subscriptions be they users or channels. Help! I must have my Nerdist and Geek and Sundry!
Yes I can seek outmthemvideos individually but that defeats the purpose of having my YouTube account linked!
The summer Olympics will be broadcast on the channels of NBC Universal. ESPN does not have rights to the games.
The original post mentions Cox customers now being able to receive "Plus Pak" channels.... those channels are mpeg4. New mpeg4 Verizon FiOS channels apparently work too.
So at least in theory mpeg4 is working. But it's hard to guarantee it across the board without any additional fixes from Tivo, as so few MPEG4 deployments are out there right now.
I guess we need to hear from more users with mpeg4 channels in their lineups (if any) to try to get a consensus.
It's interesting that this comment is posted to a thread started by Tivo's UI vice-president. If I were in charge of Tivo and someone under me let such a preposterous error get put into product, I would be firing that person the next day.
I think this sums up Tivo's care of their customers in a nutshell - we do what best for our business relationships and not what's best for our customers.
As mentioned many times, Tivo did NOT develop this Netflix app, Netflix did, there's no sacking to be done at Tivo, Inc for this issue.
Still no update here in Newark CA :-( Bay area....just tried to force it but nothing...
What error? This seems to be working as Netflix designed. So far, I have not heard of any bugs on the Netflix application, just intentional programming decisions by Netflix.
Do I like these decisions, no. To me, it is lazy and annoying. To the point that I'm considering dropping Netflix for Hulu Plus, I sent an email to Netflix to complain. I'll be doing that on their facebook page as well.
For not the first time in my life i seem to be wrong, its not the hard drive making all the fuss. I took the damn thing apart and plugged it in with its top off.
As crxssi suggested it does indeed seem to be the fan raising so much hell.
This thing has been driving me crazy its so damn noisy, my wife is afraid its going to catch on fire.
Does anyone know if the fan from a TiVo S2 will work in a Premiere, or did i see a thread someplace that pointed to an aftermarket bolt in?
As always..thanks in advance!
Sorry, the fan is specific to the Premiere. When mine started failing, I thought the hard drive was exploding. I could not believe how much quieter it was when I replaced the fan.
Mine was still under extended warranty, but the insane hassle of sending it back, being without TV for a week or something, losing my "one replacement" on the warranty, and losing all my settings, programming, and recordings was not worth the price of the fan and the 5 minutes it took to install it.
I think you have to do it kinda fast. It took me several times on the first Tivo (and in the interim I was also getting switched to channel 9). Once I guess I got the right rhythm it worked. I like it.
When I went to do my second Tivo I must have gotten the rhythm down because it worked the first time. I just wrote the instructions on a post it note that I put right in front of me and I could do the sequence quickly.
PS: Make sure you are hitting SELECT that one extra time in the beginning, so it's Select - Select - Play - Select - 9 - Select.
I had experienced this issue on numerous Amazon HD video downloads (SD always worked fine). Happy to report the problem appears to be fixed on a handful of test cases.
