Audio delay after pause in 20.4.6?

Mon, 02/09/2015 - 09:00
Ever since my box got 20.4.6, I'm noticing the following problem:

- Start watching a recording
- Pause playback
- Resume playback
- Video resumes right away, but there's now a delay of about 2-3 seconds before the audio resumes.

I'm running HDMI to my receiver, and from the receiver to the TV. Nothing in my setup has changed, and I never saw this pre-20.4.6. Anybody else seeing this?

Has Madam Secretary been pulled from the schedule?

I don't see any listings for it.

Can I Keep iTunes Rental Movies Forever on iPad Air?

If you are one of the group members who like to rent and enjoy movies from iTunes Store, you may also wonder if there is any way to escape from the deadline of those rentals – that is to say own the movie forever on your iPad as above. Since the iTunes rentals are protected by DRM, we need a DRM removal tool to get rid of DRM and then the movie can be turned into unprotected videos.

Here Pavtube ChewTune is such an easy-to-use yet professional DRM media converter to remove DRM from both purchased and rented iTunes videos and convert iTunes M4V rentals to playable video formats for iPad Air, iPad Mini and iPads. Once the DRM is removed from the rentals, you are able to keep the DRM-free iTunes movies on your iPad to enjoy at anytime you like.

As a wonderful iTunes DRM removal tool, it can also good at recording your authorized videos or movies downloaded from a "Digital Copy" (typically bundled with a DVD or Blu-ray Disc), Amazon Instant Video, BBC iPlayer, etc. to many other commonly used formats for viewing on practically any compatible electronic devices.

Guide: Remove DRM and Convert Rental iTunes Movies for keeping on iPad Air, iPad Mini and iPads

Step 1. Load your iTunes M4V rental to Pavtube iTunes to iPad converter (For Mac users: ChewTune for Mac). You can either browser to file location or drag and drop source iTunes file to the app.

Step 2. Choose the optimized profile for iPad Air, iPad Mini and iPads. Click on the drop-down list at the opposite side of "Format", and then choose "iPad > iPad Air HD Video(*.mp4)" format. Or select other video format for you iPad series tablets.

You can also keep iTunes Rentals Forever on iPhone 6, iPhone 6 plus, iPhone 5S/5C.

Step 3. Is necessary, you could set video and audio parameters such as video and audio codec, bitrate, frame rate, etc so that better video and audio quality can be transferred to your iPad tablets.

Step 4. Hit the "Convert" button to start iTunes M4V rental to iPad MP4 recording.

Since Pavtube ChewTune records source DRM videos in 1:1 video and audio quality, it would take as long as the source movie length for the whole DRM video to iPad conversion process.

Once it completes, open output folder, locate the created MP4 file.

Freely launch iTunes and transfer local contents to iTunes, and then sync files from iTunes to iPad after connecting your iPad to computer with the USB cable.

Empty folder won't go away

Mon, 02/09/2015 - 01:30
I have an empty folder that won't go away. Anyone ever experience this? Basically it just says:

Parenthood (0)

If I select it, it says that there is nothing in the folder. I cannot delete it.

One interesting thing is... when I had an episode in there, it showed two folders both displaying "Parenthood (1)". I selected both and hit the clear button to delete... but only one folder disappeared and it went back to displaying "Parenthood (0)".

Tivo Desktop download

Sun, 02/08/2015 - 23:24
I purchased a license for this, but never received a download link for it. Does anyone know where I can get a copy of Tivo Desktop Plus? (I do have a code for it, just have to input it)


Better Call Saul - PILOT - 2/8/15

This show needs an episode by episode discussion, just like Breaking Bad.

Still digesting it, but Tuco is back!

Can't set a season pass for Better Call Saul

Sun, 02/08/2015 - 21:42
I have a Roamio Pro. I tried to set a season pass yesterday for BCS. I got a blue icon that showed the TiVo was thinking, and then it stopped. So, tonight I notice its not recording. I'm a little pissed, I search for the show, find it, and tell it to get a season pass. It takes about 30 seconds of thinking about it, but the pass doesn't take. So I record what is left of the show manually, and set it to record tomorrow's showing. But I can't set a season pass. What's going on? I've had a TiVo since 2000, and this is the first time this has happened to me.

Hide the scrolling sports score ticker feature

Sun, 02/08/2015 - 21:28
No avid sports watcher wants to see scores of sporting events if he or she is recording multiple simultaneous sporting events or watching a later event first.

So please Tivo introduce a feature to cover the scrolling score ticker at the bottom of the screen.

I must confess I have been known to attach a piece of paper across the bottom of my tv to block out the scores.

It seems like Tivo could easily introduce this feature. Their trick play bar sure covers up a good chunk of the bottom of the screen when it is displayed.

Let me press a button or select a menu option to make this happen when I must block the scores.

The Walking Dead "What happened and what's going on" 2/8/15 | Talking Dead 2/8/15

Sun, 02/08/2015 - 21:25
Finally, a happy ending to an episode.
My first reaction to Tyreese's bite was that now they'll chop off his arm and he'll be even more useless, then a second later I thought, nope, he has to die.

I was wondering where the torso's were. Now I want to know why, what's the story there?

and for the record, I don't believe for a second that a walker would have been able to sneak up on him like that.

Netflix - My List?

Sun, 02/08/2015 - 20:39
I'm sure this is probably a NetFlix issue, but since I primarily use my Tivo for NetFlix:

Where in the heck did they move the "My List" to? It used to be right on the main NetFlix page once I chose the profile on the Tivo. Now, all I get is "recently watched".


TiVo Roamio OTA laggy FF & RR

Sun, 02/08/2015 - 19:34
I have had the TiVo Roamio OTA for about 45 days or so. It is real laggy FF & RR. Meaning after I press the remote 3-5 seconds before it responds.

Is this a common problem?
Any fix besides rebooting it?

Thanks for your help.

One Pass Survived HDD change

Sun, 02/08/2015 - 18:52
OK, so I upgraded my HDD today and after it started up all my onepasses were gone which I knew would happen. But one survived. It was house of cards. Why did this one survive? Are certain ones saved differently?

CableCard or Digital Converter?

Sun, 02/08/2015 - 18:48
I just purchased a Tivo Roamio, I have Comcast Xfinity service.
Is it better to use the Tivo with a digital converter or with Cablecard(s)? What are the pros and cons of each scenario?

Can I record 4 channels at a time in both scenarios?

Does the Tivo control everything, meaning I only need to have the Tivo remote for all my viewing or will I have to juggle remotes?

Discovery bar

Sun, 02/08/2015 - 17:43
Has anyone have this just not show up? I upgraded the HDD today and ever since it hasn't showed. Everything else so far works just fine.

Dolby® Atmos®

Is TiVo capable of using the new Dolby® Atmos®?

TIVO Stream Purchase?

Sun, 02/08/2015 - 17:03
The Tivo web site states that the Stream is out of stock, and provides a link to Best Buy.

Best Buy has none available for sale, nor was I able to find another on-line retailer.

Is it safe to assume that the Tivo Stream is at the end of its product life cycle?

Is a next generation Tivo streaming product in the pipeline?

Black Sails XI (2/8/15)

Sun, 02/08/2015 - 16:29
This is the second week in a row where they did what I thought they would take the rest of the season to do...last week, the return of Flint to his captaincy, and this week the fall of Ned Low!

So I assume the rest of the season will be Flint vs. Vane...which probably means that'll get resolved next week. :D

I have to give Vane credit...when he sends a message, he crafts it carefully to eliminate any possible ambiguity.

Grimm S04E12 "Maréchaussée" 6 Feb 2015

Sun, 02/08/2015 - 11:33
Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't understand why Henryetta said that there's no way to make Juliette a non-Hexenbiest. Didn't Nick do that exact thing to Adaline back at the end of season 1?

Why can't he do the same thing to Juliette? (Feed her some of his blood, IIRC)

New remote with no numbers only available from Tivo

Sun, 02/08/2015 - 11:05
Create a new remote without the number keys. A smaller lighter remote.

Sell it as an optional accessory in your store for those that might be interested. I know I never use the numbers to tune in a channel nor use the shortcuts.

This might be a decent selling accessory to have in the Tivo store.

New Hard Drive

Well I got a new 3tb in the mail yesterday. This morning I tackled this. Couldn't of been easier. 15 min to install and reboot and 5 min phone call to mediacom and I was back up and running.
