Penn & Teller: Fool Us - Anybody Watching?

2 hours 22 min ago
Is anybody watching Penn & Teller: Fool Us on the CW? This is one of the best magic television shows ever broadcast. If you're into magic or you like Penn & Teller, this show is a must view.

The production values are great. The selection of magicians that they are showcasing are first rate.

I think most magic on TV is usually pretty shlocky. This show breaks the mold.

Mini and a Error V87

Mon, 09/01/2014 - 22:58
I have noticed an issue recently with my Mini and my Roamio Pro. If I start the playback of a recording that is still recording, the playback will fail at about the 50 minute mark. By this time, the show has already finished recording. When the playback fails, it says that communication has been interrupted with the Roamio and lists error V87. When this happens, I can immediately start the playback again, although I need to fast forward from the beginning of the show.

Anyone else seeing this or have a resolution?

Thanks,
Merg

Mini RCA

Mon, 09/01/2014 - 22:13
Is it possible to hook up the Mini with an old RCA connection? My TV does not have HDMI.

The back of the Mini has a green plug for Component, and a yellow one for A/V.

Apple Network Doesn't work/Unwanted Recordings

Mon, 09/01/2014 - 18:22
Two weird issues with my New Roamio.
It won't connect to my Apple Wifi Network, even though 4 others have connected fine, or remain online. I also have a Comcast Wifi running and it connects to it fine. So to get all the home network use out of it, I had to change all my other Tivos to the Comcast Wifi.
Tivo support couldn't help at all.

I am also getting shows recorded even though "Suggestions" is turned off.

Too weird.

C133 Error On 9/1

Mon, 09/01/2014 - 12:41
Anyone having issues connecting to the tivo.com site or the TiVo service today? Oddly enough I am able to get to http://status.tivo.com/ but not the regular TiVo home page. The status site says that everything is operational. The network connection test on my Roamio states that the service is not found. Nothing has changed on my TiVo or router. Originally the TCP port test stated I needed to open port 37 on my router but subsequent tests were successful and the DNS test was always successful. I am able to get the 5 tiles at the top with suggestions and they are refreshing. After restarting the TiVo I no longer get the tiles at the top and I am getting the C133 error.

X Factor UK on AXS TV

Mon, 09/01/2014 - 10:35
X Factor UK is now being shown the day after its UK showing on AXS TV here in the US.

Simon Callow is the only judge that I know. They are going through the audition phase now. The first episode was last night, the second one is tonight.

On Verizon FIOS, it is channel 569.

FIOS to TIVO

Mon, 09/01/2014 - 10:17
Thinking of switching to Tivo from FIOS Quantum.
Right now I have the Main Media Server box, and 3 Mini type boxes.
Overall not a bad experience.
I'm wanting to get a Roamio Plus and 3 Minis.
Has anyone switched over and whats your take vs FIOS?
Also a big feature I want to make sure Tivo has is if I record any TV show, HBO movie ect on the Tivo, I can either stream that show to my iPad when I'm out of town or even Download that movie to my iPad and watch it without an internet connection, like on a plane.
This download feature to my iPad is a main reason I want to switch, so I just want to make sure this feature works without any other 3rd part software.
Finally, I understand I need just one Cable Card from Verizon, one CC will give my Roamio the ability to record multiple shows??
And then there is the question of monthly vs lifetime.
I've done the math and spend about $650 a year in FIOS rental fees, and if I buy the Tivo boxes and lifetime it would take me about 2.4 years to break even. But since these Roamio boxes are a year old I'm not sure if I will hang on to them past 2 plus years.
Thanks and let me know.

Need help with Sonos PLAYBAR remote code for Premiere

Mon, 09/01/2014 - 07:49
I am using Premeire with a Sonos PLAYBAR.

This has worked out well but I am having an issue where the volume starts dropping on the Sonos PLAYBAR over time.

I've learned that I need to program remote code separately for the PLAYBAR which could solve this problem.

Has anyone done this? If so, do you know which remote code specific to Sonos PLAYBAR that should I enter?

Please help. Thanks.

Can I still get a lifetime transfer/discount?

Mon, 09/01/2014 - 07:49
I have an original Philips TiVo that I bought way back in 1999. I remember that at one point I was able to get a 199 dollar credit towards new lifetime service on a new premier.

Anyone know if I can still do that?

I'm about to upgrade everything as I am moving away from direct tv and going ota and Netflix/Hulu.

A 200 dollar discount on a new Roamio would be sweet.

One quick note. Amazing how the original TiVo unit has only now after 15 years given up the ghost. And it was the modem that crapped out, not the hard drive! Something to be said for those low revving 90s drives and longevity I guess.

Falling Skies "Shoot the Moon" (8/31/14) [SPOILERS!]

Sun, 08/31/2014 - 23:47
Does anyone believe that the Volm let Lexi crash into the power plant without beaming her out?

Is anyone still watching?

Daddy! Come save the puny humans!

The good guys can one-shot all the eshfeeni ships, but don't have the tech to find Tom's beamer? :rolleyes:

Shades of Ellen Ripley with the flamethrower.

I must admit, I did get a little misty eyed at the father/daughter goodbye scene. (When Lexi was a brunette).

I opted to make this post about part 2 of the finale, instead of both eps.

New to Tivo, cable cards, and TAs - all is not well

Sun, 08/31/2014 - 21:25
I have two problems (1 - pixilation on a number of channels and 2 - no SDV channels are being displayed - error V52). Here are the details.

I have a Roamio Basic w/4 tuners and have Brighthouse (Tampa) as my cable provider. I purchased and installed the unit last May and had Brighthouse perform in install. My first tuning adapter was defective so they replaced it and all was good (Tivo performed well and all SDV channels were accessible for at least 30 days). We leave Florida in the summer but I always leave my DVR on so that I can capture my favorite programs while we are away. When we got home the other day it appeared that the summer recording was all there. I actually checked that it happening while we were away and made adjustments using the iPad remote app. The first thing I noticed was that many (but not all) recordings were very pixelated. The pixelated recordings were also only on a handful of channels (ABC, FOX, and several sports channels but not NBC, History, Discovery, and others. When I tune the problem channels to just watch them they are also pixelated (some minor, some severe). I am also now unable to tune in the SDV channels even though the diagnostics look OK and the green light on the TA is on steady. I've gone through many reboots/restarts but to no avail. The cable company is sending a tech out after Labor Day so hopefully he can figure it out.

Do I need gigabit ethernet for Mini?

Sun, 08/31/2014 - 20:22
I have the Roamio in the house and the Mini in my separate office. Do I need to run gigabit ethernet for best results? Do I need Cat6 cable to do this?

lifetime discount

Sun, 08/31/2014 - 17:53
Hi,
I am a soon to be new TiVo customer and was wondering when TiVo usually have discounted lifetime subscriptions. Thanks.

minimum MoCA performance

Sun, 08/31/2014 - 17:20
I recently installed a Pro + 2 minis for a friend and she mentioned that one of the Minis has complained about no connection to the Pro, but the situation usually resolves itself pretty quickly.

I checked the network status on all 3 and what I found is that the 2 minis see each other with 280Mbits TX/RX rates and they each see the Pro with only about 120-140Mbits TX/RX. From what I've read that should be enough data rate for them to do their jobs correct?

I'll probably have to crawl around under the house to see how the connections are split (every time I turn around I find another coax cable with a splitter with all 3 ends coming/going into walls and floors so I have little idea of the total topology, grrr).

I did install a PoE filter where I thought it would work best. I found a coax amp and a 1:4 splitter in a closet in the garage. I'm pretty sure that this is fairly far out in the chain of splitters, but only a crawl under the house will likely prove that. I installed the filter just after the amp. I'm guessing that if I installed the filter between the Pro and the two minis that I would have a lot more than half rate, or could that be the cause? (When I'm over there later I guess I can remove the filter and double check, but I wanted to get some idea of the effect of the filter before I do any more experiments.)

Would another amp hidden in the crawl space on the run to the Pro possibly cause the rate to halve?

And could the half rate they are getting possibly be the cause for the occasional "no connection" errors in and of itself, or at least a smoking gun for the cause?
