Download Manager problem with CNET podcasts

Wed, 11/27/2013 - 16:30
I have been having problems getting some CNET podcasts ever since the Fall update. I sent in a report to Tivo and they told me to do a Clear and delete of program info and todo lost. I really don't want to do this since I'll have to re-enter all my season passes again. I have posted my description of the problem below. Does anyone have any other suggestions to try?
Here is a description of what is happening:

1. I select the download manager
2. It lists the following items
2a. Circuits
2b CNET News HD
2c. All CNET HD Video Podcasts

A. I select 'circuits'
Aa. It shows a screen with various options on what to do with the season pass. I select modify, then cancel season pass
Ab. It asks me to confirm the cancel and I select Yes
Ac. It trhen goes back to the options screen and it still shows that I have a season pass.
Ad. When I go back to the download manager, it still lists 'Circuits'

B. From the download manager I select 'All CNET HD Video Podcasts'
Ba. The screen goes right back to the download manager with no error. It never even gets to the option screen.

C. from the download manager I select 'CNET News HD'
Ca. It shows the option screen where I pick 'modify season pass', then 'Cancel season pass'
Cb. It asks for confirmation and I select yes. It goes back to the option screen where now it asks if I want to create a season pass'. This is how it is supposed to work.
Cc. WHen I now go back to the download manager, it no longer shows the CNET News entry

Description C above is how the download manager is supposed to work. Of my 3 season passes for podcasts, item C is also the only one that is downloading any shows.

I would be happy if I could just clear out the 3 items in download manager and start again but I can't delete them (except for the only one that is working).

Are Distinct IR Code Sets still available for multiple Tivo's?

Wed, 11/27/2013 - 15:28
Does anyone know if the new Roamio Tivo's still allow you use distinct IR code sets (with differing base addresses) for multiple Tivos? I've purchased a Roamio Pro.

Do you configure the base address in the same way as in the past?

This would allow me to continue controlling my multiple Tivos (and all of my other devices) with a single universal remote.


Problem converting with kmttg

Wed, 11/27/2013 - 15:25
I went to use kmttg to convert some files I've already copied over from my TiVo. I found out how to start that process, but I'm getting errors doing it, and I'm not sure why. Other than selecting the file, the only option I picked was "decrypt".

Everything else seems to work, but not this. Here's what I'm seeing. Any advice?

Does TIVO work with Centurylink Prism TV?

Wed, 11/27/2013 - 14:11
I am considering switching from Cox to Centurylink. The only reason for this switch is that Centurylink offers fiber-driven gigabyte internet in Omaha.

If I move my phone, internet and cable to Centurylink the pricing becomes attractive.

Does anyone know if Tivo will work with Centurylink's Prism TV? The sales people claim that it does - I just want to make sure.



The Blacklist 11/24/13

Wed, 11/27/2013 - 13:55
I'm sort of surprised there isn't a thread here yet from last Sunday's episode. I thought that parts of it were excellent TV. Spader really saves this show, all the FBI/CIA/NSA actors are dreadful, but Lizzy, Spader and whomever is the bad person of the week have been worth watching. The bad guy for this episode and next has a great chemistry with Spader.

I could see Spader in the Emmy conversation if this show lasts.

Premiere as "mini" w/o subscription?

Wed, 11/27/2013 - 13:18
Thinking to upgrade my old Premiere to Roamio: question is, what to do w/ the old Premiere?
I don't have Lifetime on it... I would swap the cable card to new Roamio...
option is to try and sell the Premiere, or use it as a mini-like remote box.

Is a premiere still usable for MRV transfers and streaming from a Roamio and/or S3, without an active subscription? (obviously no live TV w/o sub or cable card).
or is it completely dead w/o a sub?

otherwise , how much is non-lifetimed 320g premiere worth? :)

6 Tuners Help

Wed, 11/27/2013 - 12:59
I've upgraded from an S3 and have a 6 tuner plus roamio.
I was wondering if there is any way to display what all 6 tuners are tuned to without cycling thru all of them?

when I try to schedule a recording. Has anyone been able to find a solution?

Supernatural - "Rock and a Hard Place" - 11/26/13

Wed, 11/27/2013 - 10:34
Well. That might have been the most unsexy sex I've seen on this show. At least last season with Sam and Amelia we just got the awkward kiss but this. Well.. I just don't know what to make of it. The entire lead up to it was so awkward to me. And not in the usual good way Dean is awkward. It was almost like bad acting on Jensen’s part. I can only assume it’s because of the absolute lack of chemistry with him and the actress. I wasn’t feeling it. At all. And I'm sorry this is superficial of me and maybe just me but... Spoiler: ...the actress 1. isn't that hot 2. didn't have the great bod I was expecting for some built up fantasy porn star, it looked like Jensen struggled when he was picking her up 3. wasn't a good actress IMO at all
Okay that aside, I did like how Vesta called Sam out on his insides being dead. That's twice now. Sam get a friggin clue here. Ugh. It was odd though because obviously not the same scenario with Sam but that scene reminded me so much of Veritas in You Can't Handle The Truth calling out Soulless Sam. Creepy.

And Dean trying to tell Sam was heartbreaking. He knows this is all going to blow up in his face and now he can't seem to do anything about it. I'm a bit tired of Zeke popping in and out whenever he wants (although for the love of all that is holy, Jared does that transition so well it's astounding to me). It also seems from the previews that Spoiler: it's all coming to a head with Zeke!!! I'm scared for next week. It's the winter finale and it's going to be harsh.


Duration of channel info display?

Wed, 11/27/2013 - 08:11
Is there any way to control the time that the overlay with the channel and program info stays on the screen when changing channels? Or even control the position? I hate that is always obscures the current score info that seems to be at the bottom of the screen right where the overlay sits on most sports broadcasts :-).

New to Tivo have a question!

Wed, 11/27/2013 - 07:14
I'm sure this has been answered many times, but on a season pass why does it record every episode when it's set to "new only"? Is the only other option to record a specific channel,time and day? From what I found this is the only fix...

"COPY TO THE OTHER BOX" Transfer Settings questions...

Wed, 11/27/2013 - 05:03
I finally got my Roamio Plus. I see a feature in my tivo.com account where I can copy the season pass manager to another box. My question is.. does the source box need to be connected? I have disconnected all my old tivo boxes and the M cards as well. Can I still do the copy thing? Seems like it would work since it's showing all my season passes even though the box is not connected.

And also, what is the best way to transfer all my shows from the HD to the Roamio? Use the tivo desktop software to transfer to computer, then from computer to Roamio?

Music & Photos delay with 20.3.7.x software

Tue, 11/26/2013 - 23:23
Starting with 20.3.7 software on both my Roamio Pro and series 4 units I have to wait several seconds when selecting Music & Photos from TiVo Central before anything appears. Anyone else seeing the same delays? I think it's something to do with 20.3.7 software since I'm seeing the problem on 3 different units.

Transferring folders

Tue, 11/26/2013 - 21:09
I think I know the answer, but I wanted to see if anyone came up with a better way to copy a folder from one Tivo to another without selecting each one in the folder.

I am in a process of setting up a new Roamio; I started transfer from an old Tivo HD one program at a time, but now I am looking at a folder with 250 programs. I am considering looking for a complete 8 season series on DVDs instead.

This post actually belongs in "wife won't delete programs" thread. I have to buy a new Tivo every few years because of that.
