Can't get one pass for The Comedians

Mon, 03/30/2015 - 16:58
Well I actually did set up the one pass, but it won't schedule in the to do list. I set it up by going to the guide. I also note that a search via iPad app won't find the show. I suspect this issue will clear up in a few days, but I wondered why this glitch occurs.

(The Comedians is a new series premiering on FX starting April 9.)

HBO's Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison Of Belief

Mon, 03/30/2015 - 15:08
Parts of this expose of Scientology's practices and abuses are mind boggling. High executives were exiled to "The Hole", basically a prison for months and years. Mothers were separated from the babies because the babies were annoyances. Physical abuse. Mental abuse. Dirty tricks on people who tried to raise the alarm about the inner goings on of Scientology.

There was one scene that described a literal game of musical chairs. Exiled members in The Hole were forced to play musical chairs where the person who "lost" would be kicked out of Scientology and everybody beat the crap out of each other so he or she wouldn't lose.

I can understand people using various methods of self help to improve themselves and to remain on the straight and narrow but at some point you have to realize your belief system is wrong and damaging. It's strange to me that whole families of parents, children and grand parents turn their backs on members who simply question Scientology. Every religion should have a come when you want and leave when you want with no repercussions philosophy.

Scientology seems to be a California thing. I don't know if it has any presence around here. Certainly not a big presence. I first started hearing about it about 20 years ago because one of my favorite jazz pianists, Chick Corea was a proponent of Scientology and there were occasional dust ups because of its cult-like status when he'd perform over seas.

One thing that may just be a coincidence but then again... The Church Of Scientology was virulently against this documentary and the day after it was broadcast on HBO, hbo.com isn't available. The website is up but it just resolves to a black page.

Here's Scientology's rebuttal to the HBO documentary: http://www.freedommag.org/hbo/ As described in the documentary, these guys don't mess around, they attack.

Upgrade Tivo Plus, download one pass settings

Mon, 03/30/2015 - 11:06
Hi Everyone,
I'm getting ready to upgrade my Tivo plus with a bigger HDD. I have a lot of shows in one pass. I'm not to worried about the recorded shows, but I don't want to have to input all of my one pass shows.

So is there a way to download them and upload to the new HDD?


Ultimate Spiderman (Anyone watching?)

Mon, 03/30/2015 - 10:02
I started this one on Netflix and I can't help myself. I watch this thing and I'm always left on the verge of busting out laughing. Between spidey cracking wise and breaking the fourth wall I find this show immensely entertaining. I'm on season 3 now and it's still good.

SNL - 3/28/2015 - Dwayne Johnson/George Ezra

Mon, 03/30/2015 - 09:49
I really like Dwayne as a host, I thought The Rock Obama could have been better, but as cold opens go I thought it was funnier than most, especially since it was fairly quick.

I thought the highlight of the night was the wrestling skit, I was LMFAO through the whole thing.

And as usual the mix on the musical guest just seemed to be awful, well, that and the fact that George seemed to have an issue getting his W in "Who" out, but he did it the same way the whole song, it just sounded real odd to me.

Setting controls on a mini for airbnb room

Mon, 03/30/2015 - 09:25
I am setting up an airbnb rental in my basement, and I would like to use a mini to provide cable access for a TV there. However, I would like to set this mini up in a manner so that ONLY streaming of the cable TV stations is allowed. Specifically, I do not want this mini to be able to access or change and recordings, settings, etc., on my Roamio plus. My concern is the security of my accounts while still providing access to cable TV stations. (I'd actually be OK with this mini setting up recordings, etc., but it would have to be on a separate account.)

Is this possible? Or would it make more sense to set up the TV in this room in a different manner? The room does have access to WiFi (at streaming speeds). Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

annoying android delete button

Mon, 03/30/2015 - 07:04
The new android app is nicer in many ways, but I've just noticed one annoying feature: I click on a show in "my shows" I read the description and see that I don't want the recording anymore, so I click the little trash can icon at the bottom.

That doesn't delete the show, it merely pops up a one item menu that says "delete", so I have to click on the menu item.

That doesn't delete the show, it pops up a confirmation dialog which I have to click on to say "yes I meant that".

That finally deletes the show :-).

What is with the extra menu popup in the middle of this sequence?

The Last Man On Earth S1E7/8 - 3/29/15

Mon, 03/30/2015 - 04:36
Well, for all those who were combining in the last thread about what a doosh Phil is, I'm guessing these episodes didn't help any.

Younger on TVLand

Mon, 03/30/2015 - 01:06
You would think with this show having a Showcase in TiVo it would be a breeze to record...but of course it's on a Viacom network, which means their listings (aka the impossible OnePass for The Daily Show which will never be resolved) are created by people who have no business making up TV listings.

When I set up the OnePass, it had the first two episodes airing on March 31 as new half-hours consecutively...which makes all the sense in the world. Now though, Viacom decided to re-send the listings out to make it an hour premiere in an hour timeslot with 101 and 102 in it. This of course makes the TiVo think the Thursday rerun is also new, but it's just repeats of 101 or 102.

Not hard to delete them, but Viacom really needs to learn how to use the (R) flag like everybody else.

So does anybody know how The Major got away from the Germans?

Did I blink and miss it?

And any clues who Sara Hastings is/was?

Empty "My Shows" Folder cannot be deleted

Sun, 03/29/2015 - 23:17
I set up a One Pass for the Late, Late Show. Probably accidentally included streamable episodes. After deleting the One Pass the folder remains at the top of "My Shows" taking up space. How do I delete the folder? There is no One Pass to delete. There is no Wishlist to delete. The folder just sits there and lists streamable episodes of the Late Late Show.

Losing wireless connecting during amazon playback

Sun, 03/29/2015 - 22:44
I've had a problem with my roamio losing it's wireless connection a couple times. Each time it happened while accessing netflix. Netflix will come up, usually slowly. I may or may not get into a show from the netflix menu. I try restarting my wireless router but that doesn't fix it. The only fix it a restart of the tivo.

Any idea what the problem is? I'm pretty sure my wireless setup is fine, as my other devices are still able to access the wireless network when the roamio can't.

Walking Dead / Talking Dead - 3/29 - Conquer

Pretty good finale. Morgan is back! But he looked so deflated after he met up with Rick again.

Download Manager not working

Sun, 03/29/2015 - 22:23
I noticed I haven't gotten any of my web downloads for the past week. When I go into Download Manger and chose a show, it does a quick transition like it's going to another screen, then immediately goes back to my list of shows. I can't dig deeper into each show.

Anyone else have this problem?

Tried a reset to no avail. Also a member of beta testing but I'm not sure what the latest version is.

Best 2TB for TiVo HD/Series3?

Sun, 03/29/2015 - 19:40
I'm considering three different drives to upgrade TiVo HD/Series3 units to 2TB: WD20EURS, WD20EURX, and WD20EZRX

Amazon has all three for similar prices, any recommedation for which I should use? Does it actually matter which one I choose?

Also, I plan to use wdidle3 to disable Intellipower regardless of which one I choose.
