I watched a episode a few days ago thought it was pretty good, caught another tonight (Raising Gazorpazorp) was one of the funniest TV shows I've ever seen.
I received an email today stating that Video On Demand for Comcast customers was FINALLY AVAILABLE in my area!!!!!
I've been waiting for this for a couple of years. I went straight to my TiVo and YEP... IT'S THERE!
I live in Dover, Delaware about 70 miles away from Philadelphia... but I would guess this is now available in Philly too.
I was thinking we were never going to get it.
This will definitely save us money because that big stupid cable box that we pay $10 a month is going the heck back. The only reason we kept it on one of the TV's was because it was the only way to access VOD... now we can just add another TiVo Mini. Not only are we being charged for that box, but I believe they are also charging us something like $7.50 for the Multi Media Card or whatever it's called that goes in our XL4 because we were told that the card would have been free however we have a box so it negates the free card. Or some BS like that.
Anyway... good day... just wanted to pass it along in case people didn't notice the email in their inbox. Actually, I wouldn't have noticed it in my regular gmail inbox because it's labeled under the 'promotions' tab. I only noticed it because it was visible on my iphone.
What is the max single drive size you can use in the hr10-250? I've seen people say 1.5 tb. I have successfully used a 1tb.
When I try my 1.5 tb drive the image fails to install. I've tried both MFStools and the bootdisk version of mfslive.
Also what is the shortcut for the recording amount screen (shows how many hours used and how many left?), in the "to do" screen?
Since about the end of Feb 2014 with 20.3.8 loaded Netflix no longer works on my TIVO Premier for me and an unreported number of others. TIVO Engineering is supposedly trying to figure our why but so fan they apparently have not found the cause or the fix.
Has anyone else experienced this error? I went to the TiVo site and forced the PRO to make a connection. That didn't solve the problem. Rebooting didn't solve it either :(
Can anyone offer me some insight on this? It's frustrating :(:down:
WeatherNation TV, who got some attention recently as a Weather Channel alternative given the DirecTV retransmission spat, wrote to let us know their Roku channel is now available. Beyond regional interactivity, the app also provides live video… which looks pretty good windowed, but there’s work to be done on full screen resolution/quality. The virtual channel […]

Will my S3 show 3D content either as a downloaded 3D movie or 3D channel on Comcast? I just bought a 3D TV.
I have a Roamio in one room connected to a mini via ethernet in a second room.
I use an HD antenna and receive only OTA broadcast channels. I'm new to Tivo's and everything set up easily and works great (with very minor glitches). I'm very pleased with the setup and happy to be rid of cable bills. Here's the rub. I called to switch my internet service to Comcast (strictly wanted internet). They offered me a deal for 20mpbs internet, limited basic cable and HBO as a bundle for one year at a price cheaper than I can get for internet alone. Seems like a no brainer, but I have a few questions that hopefully someone familiar with Comcast/Tivo can answer. 1) I understand I can get a free cable card but since I don't plan on paying their HD technology fee will the broadcast networks be HD as they they are now using the antenna? 2) If the price isn't reasonable after the first year I plan on going back to the antenna - does installing/removing cablecards have any negative impact on Tivo? 3) I assume I will not have to pay Comcast any sort of fee (equipment or otherwise) for the Mini, correct?
There are several benefits to hooking up Comcast to the Tivo (HBO/On-demand/etc). Any other potential downsides anyone sees. I can always get a cable box, hook Comcast up to a spare HDMI on the TV and leave the Tivo setup the way it is using the antenna.
Interesting story on companies selling your internet data without your permission (or your permission is buried in the ToS). Really scary.
I'm getting a new Roamio Pro delivered today. I'm currently on a business trip until 3/19. I'm having it delivered to me at my temporary location, so I can't really use it or plug my M-Card in. In the mean time I would like to at least hook it up to a TV and make sure it turns on. Do you think since I have some time I should run Kick Start diagnostics and make sure everything is alright? If so, what specifically should I run?
"Ira Bahr, the former Dish Network exec who oversaw the product planning and marketing for the satellite TV giants Hopper whole-home HD-DVR, has been hired as the chief marketing officer of DVR pioneer TiVo..."
I purchased Mlb.tv premium about a month ago for the first time.
I am unable to activate MLB.TV on Tivo. Here are the steps Ive taken.
Click on activate now
I fill in all of the fields
click on "save and continue to activate"
Then I get the following error:
We are sorry, but you have reached this page in error.
Please try the action again and, if the problem continues, contact Customer Service.
I have tried on my win 7 PC, my win XP PC and my iphone. Same error on all 3.
Also, the MLB.TV on my Roamio says 2013 MLB. It gives me an activation code to enter at mlb.com/tivo, but I get the above error when I go to mlb.com/tivo.
I brought this issue up to @MLBFanSupport on twitter and was told that TiVo is not supported for spring training and most likely tivo will push out an update for opening day of the regular season, but I found users on this forum stating that they were able to wacth spring training games on their Roamios.
Thank you very much for your assitance.
I just bought tivo to avoid crazy expensive $12 monthly rental for the STB box from verizon. I don't record any shows and bought tivo DVR to replace my STB. But, it looks like, tivo doesn't even allow the tv guide (even though, it is being provided by the cable provider and not really a tivo feature). Now, I am in a situation, where I am paying $5 for the tuner card from verizon and being forced to $15 subscription cost for tv just to get the "tv guide". Not sure, if it just me OR there are lot of people feeling the same pain. I hope, tivo could do something about it.
I am looking to replace 3 VZ DVRs with a Roamio Pro & 2 Minis in the near furfure (waiting for the next round of deals). I currently own a 2TB OLED S3 w/LT as well
I have VZ FIOS, ONT to GigE Actiontec router. RG6 quad shielded COAX and CAT 5e from the router to the rest of the house. I also have 2 Actiontec Rev F wireless routers (I've been sitting on them for separate MoCa networking if needed)
The new TiVo units are to be placed in the same spot as the FIOS ones so there is existing COAX (obviously) and CAT 5e as well (2 home run to the GigE router, 1 via Linksys switch)
Is there a consensus on what is best to use speed/transfer/stream/response wise (Roamio > Minis) since all things equal MoCa (from reading various threads) is pretty much plug & play with the FIOS Actiontec
I have a Tivo Series 1 (model PTV300, software ver 3.0.01-1) with CacheCard and upgraded hard drive that has been chugging along great for years. A few weeks ago I started to get a message that the daily call was failing. The test call works fine but repeated attempts of the daily call always fails. Sometimes it gets as far as 80% indexing but never completes. The two errors I see are Failed while loading series and call interrupted (I see this long after the call when all data has been download and when it is way into the indexing process). In desperation I tried a kick start 57 which put me in a GSOD loop that I couldnt recover from.
I restored a known good backup from years ago to a brand new drive (actually now have tried 2 new drives) and as per some Internet research I increased the swap file partition to 128MB for the 120GB hard drive I am using.
I still can not complete the daily call indexing and the kick start 57 still GSOD loops. I have also tried to redo guided setup and also done a complete erase/reset of data but cant complete the calls needed to get through setup.
Im baffled as I know the backup I have has worked in the ancient past and two brand new hard drives from different manufactures cant both have problems. Anyone have any ideas? Also any ideas why I cant recover from a kick start 57 (I would love to fix that while I have everything open)?
Fox just announced another set of renewals for next season:
The Mindy Project
also, Fox announced that there will be a third season of Masterchef Junior
(which has not aired its second season yet)
Fox had previously announced renewals for:
Bones (expected to be its final season)
Glee (executive producer Ryan Murphy says this will be its final season)
and I think Family Guy as well
Noticeably absent (for the moment, anyway - I suppose Fox needs something to announce at UpFronts): Dads, and Almost Human
The only two shows I know of that are not coming back are The X Factor and American Dad (the latter is moving to TBS).
Urgh, more non-linear storytelling. Guess I shouldn't be surprised. Unfortunately too much of this "spring arc" will be taken up with how WW cursed them, how Hook found his boat, how he got away to NYC to warn Emma, etc.
The only hope I have is the "slip-up" that Emma noticed when she found Charming and Snow in the apartment, how they mentioned "losing a year". She asked how they knew it was a year, and they kinda shrugged it off. She's right: they shouldn't know about it, just like Emma didn't know about her time in Storybrooke (fire in her apartment got her to move to NYC, etc). Makes me wonder if any of this new Storybrooke is real, or at least "as it appears".
Good to see Granny and Jiminy back. And I pegged Emma's suitor as a bad guy immediately. :)
And damn them for remembering that Snow needed to get pregnant. It's probably Peter Pan's baby anyway, to further rot and collapse the family tree. :eek:
We just moved to a temporary house for 3 months while we are remodeling. We have standard cable (Time Warner) and no cable card.
For some reason we don't get CNBC, which is my wife's favorite channel. I did a channel scan and found an additional 300 or so channels, most of which are blank.
We get the channel right above and below CNBC, but on that channel we get v52 error.
Calling to get a cable card is a complicated process because we are not the people on the account.
Anybody know a listing of alternate channels that we can try or a way around this? I am going to call time warner, but I fear that because it works on their box and not on tivo that I am just going to get grief from them.
Wow. I wonder what Brendon and Rachel's cab driver did wrong to take them from first to seventh in just the length of a cab ride to the airport. Given that the first six teams were virtually guaranteed not to be eliminated, that was incredibly dangerous.
It was very suspect that Dave and Connor floated past the place where they were supposed to deliver the food, yet were able to walk it back upstream, deliver it, walk back downstream, and still complete the task before anyone else. Since the Afghanimals and the Cowboys delivered their food first, I'm not sure what they were doing between delivering the food and getting the next clue that allowed Dave and Connor to finish first.
Joey and Meghan probably would have finished last anyway, because they're just not very skilled. But forgetting to tell their cab to wait when every other team did so was all it took to ensure their elimination.
So that's three episodes this season, and all three have shown the second-to-last team check in while the final team is still completing the last task. Does that mean the producers have realized that creating fake drama about who gets to the mat first is stupid and they're going to present it more truthfully now? Or were these three situations just so obvious and inevitable that they didn't think they could get away with it?
