Fast Forward a few months... I was actually hoping for a moment with Edith and her Aunt in Geneva.
And, the biggest problem was that it didn't seem like 8 months had passed for anyone else. The same men were still after Mary. Rose's ball was still being planned - I never realized it was going to be so many months later. That gentleman that likes Isobel didn't appear to have made much progress with his flirtations, and then suddenly we get to see it play out. That all kind of annoyed me.
Love, always love, seeing Violet and Cora's Mom together. What a hoot!!
Paul Giamatti was fun - and I enjoyed that whole story with the American's and all their money versus the English hanging onto titles and both being so bloody obvious about it all. Not like you would have seen in the first season, to be sure.
OH! and Mr. Carson and Mrs. Hughes. Wahoo! :D
What else? I know more of you watched this...
I can't figure out what should go into what. Here's what I have: antenna tv, TiVo, blue ray player, xbox, internet is through the phone company and smart tv. Any suggestions on what the configuration should be? THANKS!:)
Helix is pretty confusing and full of wtf-ness but the show I have the hardest time following is Lost Girl. I've watched all of the new episodes this season and am pretty confused. I feel like I missed half a season or something but as far as I know I haven't missed anything.
So, Seth Meyers had his first "Late Night" last night. Who watched? I did.
Monologue was basically "Weekend Update" while standing up. Still, it had its funny bits. I wonder if it's always gonna be like that. It seems so unnatural while standing.
Speaking of sets, his desk set is really small with a tiny seating area for guests. What's up with that?
I have a Tivo Premiere Elite XL4. It is almost two years old. I have a problem with two shows in my Deleted Shows folder. They will not permanently delete.
(i) hard boot (power off/on) with shows Deleted and with shows not Deleted
(ii) kick start option 57
(iii) kick start option 58
(iv) kick start option 54 -SMART Test
(v) playing the shows through:
--show 1 crashes the Tivo intermittently
--show 2 plays after a long delay (black screen) at the beginning.
(vi) various combinations of the above
I am fairly certain that they are corrupted but have exhausted suggestions I've found to remove them.
It wouldn't be a priority for me except that it is causing other problems. The two files take about 30% of the total space on my Tivo (the disk full percentage changes between 60% and 90% depending on whether the shows are deleted or not.) Together, the files are about 7 hours of playback, so the size doesn't make sense.
Even when the files are deleted, the Tivo is deleting recently recorded shows and canceling recordings (out of space) despite the 60% used indicator. This is what prompted me to start investigating.
Short of deleting and reinstalling everything, has anyone seen this problem or have suggestions.
Glad it's back. More glad that Shakira and Usher are back.
Looks like Shakira and Blake have a little something going this year.
It sometimes amazes me when no chairs turn, then even more so when someone I think is lousy all 4 chairs turn. Bad ears I guess, too many years working in a data center.
I recently bought a Roamio Plus and copied over our Season Passes from our trusty old Tivo HD. However, although we had been using "regular" SPs for The Daily Show and Colbert Report on my old Tivo, when we moved to the Roamio they started recording multiple shows per day, instead of just the 11:00 and 11:30 showings.
So, I went ahead and set up Wishlist searches using Martin Tupper's excellent advice (I tried to link it but wasn't allowed). However, even though I "named" the Wishlists after creating them, they appear in "My Shows" using the first keyword from the search, e.g. "-A humorous slant on top news stories". Is there some way to fix this? I'd much prefer that "My Shows" would state the wishlist name ("The Daily Show") instead of the keyword. Perhaps I'm missing something obvious, but I can't figure out how to correct this.
Title says it all, really.
I got an email this morning stating that the final eight episodes of BB are now available to stream.
So, if you've been waiting to see them or if you want to re-watch, there they are!
If your receiver switches to TV Input (instead of staying on the input that the Tivo is connected to) after several seconds after turning your TV on, this is the explanation. The Tivo does not support HDMI-CEC. When a TV that supports HDMI-CEC does not detect that a HDMI-CEC compatible device is connected, it will tell a HDMI-CEC receiver to switch to TV Input.
You can disable HDMI-CEC. But that will also disable ARC. And you will have to add another cable to get audio from the TV to the receiver.
The best solution is for Tivo to implement enough of the HDMI-CEC spec to keep the TV from deciding to change the receiver's input.
There are other threads complaining about the lack of HDMI-CEC support in the Tivo. I am detailing a real world problem that this is causing. This is going to become more and more of an issue as people buy new TVs that support HDMI-CEC.
Here is another thread with further explanation and additional work arounds:
The season 6 premiere of "Beyond Scared Straight" on A&E is this Friday night, however the guide indicates that it is a repeat of a season 3 episode (probably because they have similar episode titles as both episodes take place in the same prison).
Might want to set up a single show record in case the guide is not updated before it airs.
I cut cable and watch OTA mostly on Roamio.
However, I noticed that there are unscrambled channels still coming in from my cable.
I know Roamio (basic) works with both OTA and Cable... however not sure how to set this up so that I don't have to manually replace coax for OTA and cable? Is there a splitter that works with remote?
Also, how does Roamio take care of channel setups and season passes if we switch between OTA and Cable?
Ok, so I have some hearing damage and so I often leave the captioning on.
I have recently moved up from a Premiere XL to a Premier Pro and have an issue on the Roamio
With the captioning on, and set to 3/4 transparent, when there is a lot of horizontal movement behind the captioning, they sometimes appear to "quiver".
The Roamio is plugged into the same input on my receiver/same input as the tv as the XL was, so its not an artifact of the LCD image processing/settings on either of them.
Has anyone else seen this behavior?
Do I need to be concerned about Intellipark in my new HDD?
If my Tivo works 24/7 then the HDD never stops so why should I be concerned about Intellipark?
Good evening everyone.
I think I'm going to be sad, but I think my Roamio is a bust. I've had it 3 weeks now, and about once a week, maybe slightly more, it starts to artifact. At first it just has a few video blemishes, but then gets gradually worse over 30 minute period. At first it's just video, then audio starts to dip in and out.
Now, I've only left it for about 30 minutes to see if it would solve itself, but every time it happens, I restart the box and all is perfectly fine after the reboot.
Anyone have any thoughts?
Oh, how I've missed this show in all its goofy, over-the-top glory.
More specifically, how I've missed James Spader and the chemistry he has with, apparently, the entire human race.
I've had a HDXL w/ a M card (Comcast) for a couple of years and, up to about a week ago, had no issues.
Now however, I've had a couple of incidents where channels or whole lineups would not be available. These seem to come and go... For example, we lost Fox SD & HD on Sunday afternoon and it we noticed that it was back tonight. However, it looks like one of our local PBS stations has been out for a while.
I haven't tried replacing the CC yet, but figured that it may be the next step. Having stated that... is it possible that the CC port is bad on the TiVo and that I'll need to replace the whole unit?
Just seeing if anyone else had similar experiences...
I am very very sorry if this has already been answered on another thread, but I've been searching and my frustrations have gotten the better of me. I just want to copy/clone my Tivo HD's hard drive (1TB). I've looked up and downloaded MFSLive and JMFS I can't figure out how to do it.
Can someone please advise me?
I'd like to copy the drives using my USB drive enclosures (aka put the new HDD and the Tivo HDD in USB drive enclosures and clone that way). I tried to follow the instructions on the MFSLive web site and burned a bootable disk, which didn't work. I also downloaded & opened WinMFS in Windows 8 via bootcamp and the drives don't show.. >sigh<
So again, can someone please give me a step by step? I have no idea what I'm missing... thanks in advance!
On friday my Tivo S3 got a software update to 11.3b7-01-2-652 and now all my channels except for the basic channels now say "This channel is not authorized".
Anyone else having this issue?
I called Verizon FIOS because I thought it was their issue, they came out and change the cable cards, cables, ONT and everything looked good on their end.
I can even take out the cable cards from the 2-series 3's that are not working and put them in to my Series 4 and I get all the channels.
Tivo support said maybe 1-2 weeks for a fix. :(
Wow, this season is turning out to be one of my favorites! A lot of interesting things happening, unfortunately all bad!
One thing I was thinking about. Earlier, Frank befriended his oldest daughter without telling her he's her Dad. He just wanted to get a piece of her liver. When it turns out that Sammi was not a match in his anger Frank blurts out that she was his daughter. At that point Sammi gets real mad at Frank and kicks him out of her trailer. A while later (I'm not sure its in the same episode or another) Sammi changes her mind and is willing to do anything to help Frank, including now getting him hard drugs or even breaking into Shelia's house. The big question is why did Sammi have such a major change of heart.
My theory is that Sammi is really after the money that Frank may get from claiming that he broke is leg on Shelia's front steps and/or any other money or possessions Frank may have if he dies.
And I still think Frank will NOT die, although I'll bet you the season finale will have Frank on death's bed and then we'll have to wait until the next season (I'm hopefully assuming its renewed for at least another season!) to see if he really dies, which I'm still saying he will not!
