I saw a Motorola 514517-002-00 M-Card MediaCipher Cable Card listed on eBay. Will this model work in my Tivo Premiere?
I have several premieres & a Series3 Tivo. All are working great. I know they can take extra storage via their eSata interface.
I have some working spare drives (250GB-500GB) lying around and a hard drive enclosure for them that has USB and eSata connections. Will something like this work with premieres and/or S3? or does it really have to be one of the certified ones like the WD units/models?
I'm considering getting rid of the cablecards on my series 3 (I have another Tivo I would use w/ cablecards still). The idea is two use this Tivo just for HD local channels or any other unencrypted channels that might be available. Has any one tried this with FIOS? In the DC/VA area?
Does anybody know how to block certain channel providers (YouTube, etc..) on the mini? I can disable/block YouTube on the roamio, but I have not found any way to do this on the mini yet.
FX announced that "The Americans" had been renewed for a third season... :up:
Perhaps we will have the ability to add On Demand, OTT, etc. to our My Shows queue in the near future? Personally, I'm not really too interested in the social sharing aspects associated with my TV viewing...

OK, I used jmfs to upgrade from stock 320GB to a new 2TB WD20EURX on my TiVo Premiere. You guys were great and it worked fine, or so I thought....
This all transpired 3 weeks or so ago. After a seemingly smooth day 1 and maybe 2, the unit got very sluggish, and eventually got to where it was rebooting, and wouldn't complete a connection to the TiVo Service. It would take a VERY long time, and then hang forever on the Loading Info step. It seemed to try to function during this, but all of the recordings were cut short. Some by a few minutes, some by half an hour.
So.... I opened up the unit, removed the new 2TB WD20EURX, and re-installed the stock 320GB drive. It booted up, connected to the TiVo Service, and loaded pretty quickly. It has been acting just fine.
As a note: Before I installed the 2TB WD20EURX I did run the WD Data Lifeguard Diagnostics, long test on it, and it passed.
Do you think I just got a bad transfer/copy and need to try again? I used jmfs and two USB/SATA cables on an old Windows XP box.
Any help will be appreciated.
I think this might have been just a bit too soon for Tony. It's he and woo teamed up with 3 others. He now doesn't have the numbers. The 3 girls in his old alliance aren't going to trust him, so he can't go back there.
The better move would have been to get rid of one of jeremiah or spencer, then have him, woo and LJ team up with spencer and tash to kick off the 3 girls. Then he has a group of 3 within the power 5.
This now puts spencer, tash and jeremiah in huge control.
I got my Roamio Plus yesterday, but I had band practice and didn't have time to set it up.
Today I stood in line at Charter to turn in two boxes and pick up a cablecard. The Charter boxes don't work anymore since Charter up(down?)graded to digital.
I actually didn't have any problems getting Charter to paid the card to the tivo. I was amazed! I usually have to threaten FCC complaints, have a tivo/charter threesome and eventually have a truck roll. Not this time!!
I put $99 lifetime on my HD and put that in the kids room.
Now to spend the next few months scouring ebay for a couple cheap MoCA adapters and then I'll buy a mini for the computer room.
Yay!! I have 6 tuners!
My Tivo stream sounds like an airplane coming in for a landing. Has anyone else had this problem. I thought I had read that this was just something I would have to deal with but called Tivo today and was informed I could pay $79 to replace it.
My Premiere's un-modded HDD died early this morning. It was stuck on the'Welcome! Starting up...' screen. No sweat, I wanted to get a new Roamio anyway. I ran up to Best Buy and picked up a 75 hour model for $176 (they price matched Amazon) and I added a 4 year warranty for $35.
I got the Roamio activated, CableCARD working, it rebooted to install an update and all was going fine except it says that my Western Digital My Book AV DVR Expander 1TB eSATA (part number WDBABT0010HBK-00 0611B) is an Unsupported device. I called TiVo and they wanted to know what my Drive ID was. I don't know and their advice was to buy a new Western Digital My Book AV DVR Expander 1TB from them for $130. They would not give me a part number.
Why won't my WD DVR Expander work with Roamio? I have found a similar WD eSATA (part number WDBABT0010HBK-NESN) at another online store for $88. Will this work with Roamio? Thanks!
Anyine have any ideas on this?
I am transferring a bunch of shows over to my new Roamio (wirelessly,,,,,,,,,,,,,,slow, I know!) and I can't seem to launch any of the Game aps. It just sits there showing the waiting icon...........not moving..........then blows me out to live tv.
Really enjoyed it. Bill Bob was great.
Got my TiVo Roamio Pro yesterday and did the Verzon web Based Self install.
Within minutes I was up with all 6 tuners and Premiere Channels working.
Comcast should take a page out of Verizon's Playbook. My son has a horrible time getting activations done properly by Comcast.
And in the end... so we come to the final season of Californication. A show, much like its sister SHO Weeds, probably lasted a few seasons too long. Having said that, I thought last season was a revitalized Cali, so that gives me hope for this last season. Plus, I've watched every episode as they've aired, so who am I kidding, of course I'll watch the end.
So Hank is trying to clean up his act, play well with others, and make a living writing for TV. We'll see how long that lasts. Runkle looks good, ever since Evan Handler lost a bunch of weight a couple seasons ago. And maybe since the daughter is off on her world tour, we won't see her until the end. I always thought she was a weak link in this show.
Took me a couple of double takes before I realized that was Michael Imperioli as the TV guy.
I am having 2 issues with podcasts (on my Roamio Basic):
- A general issue with all of them where the beginning of the podcast video (just a sec or 2) is all messed up. This happens on all my podcasts now.
- An issue with Cnet podcasts: I am now getting SD versions of most (all?) of them instead of the HD versions I used to get.
Anyone else seeing the above? Any thoughts on how to fix either issue?
