    What quality is your show recorded at? With lower quality recordings, there is less data to push. I have one box using the TiVo G adapter and the other is using a Linksys wireless-B. I tried watching a High (SP) Quality show while it was being transferred and it kept pausing. If I get a second TiVo G adapter to replace the B, is there a good chance that I'll be able to watch High (SP) Quality shows while they transfer?

    These shows (I'm watching one right now, live through the feed) were recorded on High (SP) quality.

    Nice. Do you have WEP encryption enabled on your wireless network? If so, is it 64-bit or 128-bit? I might just have to break down and buy another TiVo adapter!

    You do ask all the hard questions, don't you? :) Lemme see if I can figure out the answer here.... WEP 64-bit.

    LOL! Thanks. :) I think I might have to try to eliminate all "B" devices from my wireless network (I'm reading here that this can affect performance), buy that second TiVo adapter and try it. Going from 128-bit to 64-bit WEP sounds scary to me - hopefully, I won't have to do that. Thanks for the info.

    First I must say thanks to Robomeister for starting our own Pioneer owners thread :D I had thought of doing this a while back after seeing the Humax and other "clubs", but I was only a rookie here :rolleyes:
    I even tried a Panasonic recorder in my first year of ownership since I was frustrated in not being able to edit on the hard drive. But the Pany was so clunky to operate and didn't hold a candle to my 810 in terms of elegance--tivo!
    Okay...I own the DVR-810H-S. I currently have Cox cable, non-digital, expanded basic w/o a cable box.
    I only have tivo basic, but I'm quite satisfied with that.
    But now I'm thinking of dumping cox and going with Dish Network. I met a local vendor and their running a great special right now.
    But I remember seeing something somwhere about an incompatability between satelite and either my pioneer or another DVR. I believe it had something to do with the TV guide. But now I can't find that info.
    So, does anyone know what this is??
    Thanks!!

    Standalone TiVos can control Dish receivers just fine.

    Thanks megazone
    Now that I've slept on this delema, do you know if my tivo basic machine will have access to the tv guide for the direct tv,
    so that I can use my unit just as before?
    Thanks again

    About a week ago, I tried to view a just burned disk. At first try, I got an error message screen. Second try, the disk's menu displayed. But when I tried to play the first selection (tv show) on the disk, there was a sort of winding up noise that got more intense and sounded like it was straining or getting "tighter" as it sounded like the this winding sound was slowing down. The program never even started to play. I unplugged my 810 and after it booted back up, it refused to read any dvd disk inserted--blank, recorded (dv-r) or a commercial movie. Hellllllllllp!!
    I read the post here of someone looking for a replacement burner for their humax, with the bad news.
    Does anyone know if I can replace my internal burner. I'm hoping I don't have to return it to pioneer..
    Thanks for any help!

    My burner is fine, but I was wondering this myself this past weekend. Does anyone know anyone reliable who fixes Pioneer TiVo burners?

    I have a Pioneer DVR-810H and I love it. It is extremely easy to record my favorite shows and take them with me when I travel. One thing I've notice though is that I don't seem to be able to create DVD's of programs that I recorded on my other TIVO. Transferring and watching the programs works fine but I'm not able to include them on a DVD that I want to burn. Is that a designed in issue or am i just doing something wrong?

    Thanks for any enlightenment I may get from this forum.

    Ick_the_TivoDude,

    Regarding transfering shows from another TiVo to burn on the Pioneer. That will not work. It is described in the manual that you can only burn shows that were recorded by the TiVo with the DVD writer. You cannot burn shows that were transfered from another TiVo.

    I just joined this group. I was searching for info on my pioneer DVR-810H-S and found you. I've had it for quite a while 2-3 years so it is out of warranty.
    In the last 4 months it has stopped playing some of the backup copied dvds. When that happens it locks it up and I have to unplug it to get the DVD out. I use name brand dvd-r.
    I have use the lazar disc to clean it - is there anything else I can do?
    thanx

    robomeister,

    Thanks for the clarification.

    Hmmmm......read the user manual, now that's a novel concept.

    Seriously, I appreciate your reply and thanks for not busting my chops for not seeing it in the manual. Some forums can really be harsh about that.

    I love it even though, recently, it is hanging everyday. I get the green screen but, mixed with whatever it was displaying at the time it hung. Don't know yet if it is 7.3.1 or the HD. I do plan on upgrading the HD but, I don't want to do it yet if it is still going to hang. I hate having to power it off, sometimes it hangs the display while recording. Red LED on and the drive sounds busy but, the unit is hung. I thought maybe it was the component inputs so I tried the SVid, same result.

    I love the fact that it has 480p output and an optical audio out as well. Need to save up some $$$ for a bigger disk and scour the forums for any solutions.

    Great TiVo though!

    I have one Pioneer 810-H (activated Feb 2004) and also an original model Phillips Series 1 (activated July 1999).

    Recently I have not been able to view rented DVDs in the Pioneer unit. DVDs that I have recorded on the unit seem to work fine. Recording seems to work fine.

    Symptoms:
    1. Periodic horizontal lines across the screen
    3. Darkening of the picture after the horizontal lines

    Is there some way to clean it or adjust it to get rid of this problem?
