cool . this is gay, i have to post some **** b4 i help others with links here owe well.
Any idea how to Group the Now Playing List on a Series 1 TiVo? I've turned on the sorting feature but can't seem to find anything that allows me to group programs into a common folder. This is apparently the default setting for Series 2. Is this feature even available for Series 1?
Thanks in advance,
You can't group them into a folder, but you can sort them alphabetically, which may be sorta just as helpful, kinda sorta.
Thanks...that's what I was afraid of.
Any updates on when DirecTV TiVos will get version 6?
HA! Fat chance.
DTV is dumping TiVo, most likely. No HMO yet, why would they do it now?
One of the guys over at DBSForums.com that works at DirecTV said it was due out as early as the middle of January, but said HMO was likely not a part of it. He said it may have folders, but wasn't at liberty to divulge much else about the other planned features. I just was curious if anyone else has heard any updates on whether the release is still on schedule for January?
This seems odd with their announcement about going with their own (NDS?) DVR.
Maybe they're hedging their bets and allowing them the out of keeping TiVo on board in case their customers really hate the new box.
OK, I have Philips HDR212. I want to slow down the modem for compatibility with my CallVantage line, I've entered the codes in the calling prefix, and it still doesn't help. I tried dialing out through dialup on my computer and it goes through fine, I can connect and everything so its something that I must be doing wrong on my Tivo. Any suggestions.
I have a new Humax DRT800 (apparently running s/w vers 5.4.1), do I really have to hack the backdoor code just to get access to the Disk Usage Stats? I really don't want to take the time to pull the disk out and go through all that hassle. I can't believe TiVo hasn't made that statistic more easily accessible (or have they and I'm an idiot?) I mean what are they afraid of disclosing by allowing "normal" people to see it? It is really useful to know how much disk space I have free. Maybe I will try to start a compaign at Microsoft to get that information removed from Windows! Ugh!
What model is your box? If it is a DIRECTV R10, then it is the new box that already has version 6. If it is another brand model that is a series 2 box then that means the update may be starting to release to these boxes.
Mine is a new box, just recently purchased. Do know of any capabilities for version 6? I'm particulary interested in what can be done with the ethernet connection since I have a home computer network.
I APPRECIATE YOU HELP YOU GAVE ME THE ANSWER I NEEDED ANDA COUPLE OF MORE TRICKS I WILL USE THANKS AGAIN. THIS WOULD BE A GREAT IDEA TO POST THIS FOR OTHERS WITH THESE ISUES. THANKS AGAIN DAN
Thanks for your response. This was really more info than I wanted. I wanted the shortcuts which I printed, I am not ready to mess with backdoor programs.
Anyone have a code for "rewind to start" during playback? I currently use "skip to end" - "now playing" - "select" and "play" to do the same thing.
I know for a fact that I've somehow gotten it to do this accidentally in the past. It would be nice to be able to do it on purpose sometimes.
Thanks for any help!
There is no code here. Simply use your skip-to-end button while it is in skip-to-end mode. Pressing this button repeatedly toggles back and forth to the beginning and end so you can go to either place during playback. If you have the thirty second skip enabled, you will need to disable it to change it back to skip-to-end using Select - Play - Select- 3 - 0 - Select (listen for three dings) as it will only keep advancing thirty seconds while in this mode. You can simply enter the same code to get it back to thirty second skip mode or to get it in that mode if not already. If you need to use this code, enter it while playing something back from the now playing list.
I've found that:
1-slower, more deliberate key presses work better
2-press "pause" first-it seems to set up commands better--not necessary, but, tivo responds to the commands more reliably
I've hooked a few cameras into a video modulator that merges into TiVo. I've programmed these to go on channel 80.
My question: How do I QUICKLY view those channels live (for example if I hear a doorbell). I can use the LIVE TV button IF nothing else is being recorded--however, if something is being recorded, it takes like 10 steps to get to a channel I want. Is there a shortcut to go instantly to that channel to watch it live?
Also, is there a way to tell TiVo to record this channel ALL THE TIME UNLESS I tell it to record something else. Basically, I'd like 160 hours (my capacity) of video surveillance minus whatever useless dribble I've decided to record off of network TV.
Thanks in advance. I did search through the archives but couldn't find the hack I was looking for.
To record the security video I'd recommend setting up several daily manual recordings of 2 - 6 hours each. That's 12 2 hour recordings or 4 6 hour recordings, but you can do what ever you want. Then when you set up a recording of regular tv, it will ask you if you want to cancel the manual recording set for that time or if you want to not record what you just scheduled.
