    Yep. I am hoping this addresses both SDV pixelization AND GSAS issues with certain channels.

    The downstairs THD is no longer getting the hits on SDV channels. I think we can safely call it fixed. I hope they get the general rollout started soon... Dont they know its not nice to tease the animals! ;)

    That is really great. Thank you so much for your help in identifying the issue.

    I take it you have never suffered from GSWD/GDODWS (green screen with siren - not a 'normal' Tivo crash screen but a blank green screen sometimes with a siren noise - linked to HGTV/FOODHD/Comedy Central HD/Versus)?

    Grrrrr! (Sound of animal being teased.)

    Nice Work SCSIRAID! Fingers crossed the fix works in TWC SW Ohio.

    They spent all of their developers hours/$$$ of the Series 4. No new features for us.

    Fortunately, no. That one ive not seen.

    It does look like the 'no suggestions with TA' problem is still there though.

    I get tons of suggestions with mine. Weird... I used not to get suggestions, but that was before I got the TA. I wonder what your problem is.

    The only net effect is that it will speed up transfers, right?

    It won't make them playable (/editable!) in Quicktime without time-consuming and lossy conversion, right? (I may have asked this in another thread long ago, sorry)

    There shouldn't be any lossy conversion (or conversion of any kind). It's just a different container. On my PC it takes about 1 hour to download an hour long HD show and less than 15 min to remove commercials and convert it to mp4 (quad core), so for me the download is the long pole in the tent.

    I'm not sure about quicktime, but something like ffmpeg should be able to repackage the audio/video stream in an mpeg-PS container without reencoding. That is what the TiVo is doing, it just makes sense to move this processing off to a computer which can do it much faster.

    Update: I just checked and VideoRedo, which I bought a little while ago, can edit MPEG-TS files directly.

    That time is normal if your tuners are tuned to HD stations.

    1) Better - Tune your TiVo to SD stations

    2) Best - Tune your TiVo to stations that receive no signal.

    You should find that your transfer times improve significantly. My understanding is that the bottle neck is the TiVo CPU.

    Hello all,

    Yes, 11.0f is indeed a bug fix release and contains no new features. It is still in the Customer Support Ramp phase where we release to a fixed number of units and evaluate the impact to our call centers. Once that period ends, we usually determine that we can release to all boxes at full speed. If you don't have it now, you won't get it until the full rollout begins....and that doesn't take too long.

    SCSIRAID is correct that we put a fix in for the SDV pixelation issue. He may not realize it, but he was actually an integral part of pushing TW to reach out to us with extremely technical results that allowed us to find a fix. This simply would not have been possible without his tireless effort working with TW. He is awesome. [​IMG]


    A few other things we fixed:
    • S2 units couldn't browse the recordings of an HD model that had a TA attached
    • Antenna stations with mismatched TVCT and PAT table entries have no video
    • Online scheduling not showing current Now Playing and To Do Lists
    As TiVoMargret said, we expect to have this release completed by the end of the month (barring unforeseen circumstances, of course).

    Thanks for the update TiVoJerry. I look forward to receiving the update on my units. I have a great signal from 3 local stations but no video, maybe this will fix that problem.

    Regards

    Just curious how the S2 works with the Tuning Adapter & what benefit you get from it? The S2 does not take a card so how can it even utilize the Tuning adapter for SDV channels. I was under the impression that without a card there was no need for the Tuning adapter unless channels were in SDV in the analog lineup.

    It doesn't... he's saying that a TiVo HD with a TA wasn't browsable over the network (for MRV) by an S2.

    Yes, there are a number of us here who realize what we owe to SCSIRAID!

    Please tell me there's also a fix for the occasional failure to tune SDV channels? There is a manual workaround for this (tune up 2 channels, then back down) which is documented in the TiVo support pages. But when it happens for a scheduled recording you just lose the recording. I lose an average of two recordings a week due to this.

    Hi Jerry,

    Thanks a lot for the update! Is there any attempt in this version to fix GSWS (green screen with siren)?

    Thanks,

    I was apparently picked for an "early" release of 11.0f. Not sure if it is of interest to you since it does involve a TIVO HD with drive updated to 1TB but please see message #5416 on page 181 of the Tivo Drive Expansion and Drive Upgrade FAQ in the Tivo Series 3 HDTV DVRs thread (can't post link because I haven't posted 5 times) for the experience I had this past week with a WD10EADS tweaked with wdidle3 to disable IntelliPark and 11.0f.
