Vod app temporarily unavailable v301

Sun, 04/21/2013 - 13:50
Both of my Premiers, P2 and P4, started with this error today. I am in the Boston area and up till now the on demand has been working perfectly. I have forced a couple of connections and rebooted the tivos to no avail. Is anyone else in the Boston area having a problem? I checked my account and the settings have not changed. I do not want to call tivo or comcast if this is a common problem with other users today also.

Series 3 HD 648250B Troubleshooting Help

Sun, 04/21/2013 - 12:29
Hi all, looking for some help with my series 3 OLED display HD Tivo please.

Yesterday after a power outage my Tivo would not restart after power came back on. Stock on the powering up screen.

After searching the forums and checking several items I have found the following:

1) I could not get the hard start trick to do anything, screen stays the same
2) The unit is making a clicking noise with a sequence of 6 clicks then 2 clicks several times until all seems to stop
3) I do have a bulged top on capacitor board location #C701

From what I have read so far the bulged capacitor definitely needs to be repaired but am concerned about the hard drive as well due to the clicking noises which seem to me to be from the hard drive trying to start.

Looking for advice/suggestions on what is the best way to proceed.

Thanks in advance,
Tim

Considering TiVo - need some input

Sun, 04/21/2013 - 11:06
Didn't see a "newbie" forum so will post here, mods can move if it's in the wrong place.

Looking at replacing a whole house AV system in a house we just bought with a TiVo setup using HD antennas for OTA programming and high speed broadband for Internet streaming (Netflix, Amazon, Hulu plus, etc.)

Based on info from the TiVo site it appears this could be done using the Premier TiVo boxes but need to check that they will in fact connect with a home wifi network. Also, will they stream 1080 programming if it is available? Any reliability issues with the boxes themselves (we have TWC now and the Scientific Atlanta boxes suck)? Anything else we need to know to make this work (if it will...)? Thanks in advance! :)

Intermittent audio

Sun, 04/21/2013 - 09:36
I have two TiVo's, One is a Premier4 the other a TiVo HD. On both I have had over the years an irritating audio problem. The sound will drop out (picture okay), and come back on with no intervention of myself! This can last from one second to 5-6 seconds. If I use my TV tuner to watch same channel/program, I have no such drop outs. This can happen as much as 3-4 times / hour, sometimes it won't happen at all for several hours. I've had two different TV's over this time, and in each case the problem has been the same, so I don't think it's the TV's fault. I have read of some other cases of audio drop-outs, but it is usually while some other process is taking place, this is during times that no action on my part or the TiVo is doing anything, except showing a program (note channel or program doesn't matter)! It also appears on the playback of the recorded program. Is this a hiccup of the TiVo or what? Are others experiencing this also?
Thanks for any help, Don

As soon as the girls said, "It should be the Pam and Winnie show," I knew they were history. I hate when the editing is so obvious from the very start.

How unfortunate the police officer was on the side of the road with a radar gun. Something about that whole thing seemed "off" to me. I'm sure it was all real, and they were speeding, but, it was definitely something that made me go "hmmmmmm."

TiVo Series2: "Searching for signal on: Basic Cable In."

Sun, 03/31/2013 - 23:52
I just set up my TiVo Series 2 single tuner TiVo with basic cable and a digital converter box. I chose "cable without a box." I actually made it through Guided Setup (which proved difficult before). I was so excited, then found that I could not watch live TV. The message "searching for signal on: basic cable in." shows up on every channel.

It will only show one channel. Channel 4. This is the same channel the converter box is set to. It is showing the ABC channel when the TiVo guide thinks its HSN.

The wiring is as follows:
Cable from wall->digital converter box
Cable from box->TiVo
AV Cord from TiVo-> TV

I then tried to set it up as "antenna with box." This gave me what looked like the option to change channels, but the same channel showed up each time I "changed" the channel.

Side note: this is a used TiVo purchased from eBay. The TV I'm connecting it to has been previously used with the digital converter box with no issues.

I'm at a loss of what to do next. I'm assuming I just need to pick the correct setup option. What would that be for basic cable with a digital converter box?

If you think it's something besides that, let me know any other suggestions. Please! Kinda ready to pull my hair out :)

Game of Thrones S03E01 - 03/31/13

Sun, 03/31/2013 - 22:05
No thread yet?

I REALLY loved that the opening credits shows Winterfell burning. That was truly awesome.

Dani is really coming into her own.

As for the rest.. fastest hour on TV. If we can't get more episodes can we at least get 2 hour episodes? I'm ready for the next episode already!

Good stuff, but how did Andrea not survive that attack? I mean I knew she wasn't making it out of the episode alive, but c'mon she made it out of the cuffs and couldn't take down or avoid zombie Milton?

Latest (MFSlive ?) mfstools source wanted

Sun, 03/31/2013 - 19:54
Where can i find the latest/greatest sources for the mfstools ? I have been looking around, the origial sources seem to be older than what is being compiled into MFSlive-1.4, but the sources for MFSlive-1.4 can only be downloaded from the forum page by members, and i guess that shop has been closed to new members for some years now, so it's not accessible to me.

Thanks!

TivoHD - All programs moved to Recently Deleted?

Sun, 03/31/2013 - 19:51
We came home today and everything is in our Recently Deleted folder. Has this happened to anyone else? Anybody know how this is possible? We have to manually un-delete ~100 shows! :mad:

The Vampire Diaries "American Gothic" 3/28/2013

Sun, 03/31/2013 - 17:39
Anybody else still watching? I find myself letting a couple of days go by before watching the latest episode.

The whole vampire being able to willingly turn off her/his humanity like a switch to be really stupid. To me, that is. I could see it being a rare thing like something only a powerful witch can do but it seems like any ol' vampire can do it any ol' time. It's a plot point that makes Elena more interesting and entertaining. I guess that's a good thing since the whole VD universe revolves around her. However it seems to be making her more like Katherine while Katherine probably becomes more like the old Elena because of Elijah.

Klaus annoys the heck out of me. I hope he gets his own spinoff so he can get off this show. One of the most powerful beings on the planet spends his time pining and whining after an 18 year old airhead in some podunk town. He's so small time.

Will this drive work in my Tivo?

I have this drive sitting around, thought I'd put it in my Tivo HD.

Will it work?

Issues attempting to burn a DVD

Sun, 03/31/2013 - 15:43
I am using Roxio Creator 12 to attempt to burn edited Tivo files to DVD.

I transfer the Tivo file from my Tivo Premiere to my computer using Tivo Desktop. I edit the transferred file using Roxio Creator 12's "Edit Video - Advanced" Button. [ Roxio VideoWave ] I am able to edit the Tivo File and save the resulting work in a DMSM file.

After finishing editing I now click on the DVD button in VideoWave - this transfers my work to MyDVD which should allow me to create a DVD of the edited Tivo file.

Shortly after MyDVD starts via the process I have described so far, I get the following Error Box.

Error Box is displayed as follows:

Title of Box

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library

Message in Box

Runtime Error!

Program C:\Program Files(x86)\Roxio 12\VideoWave13.exe

R6016
- not enough space for thread data

Starting up MyDVD independently - without any video file loaded up - causes no issues. About 5 seconds after I try to load the file DMSM file I saved earlier [ edited Tivo file ] I get the same error box as I have described.

I have almost a TB of free space on my hard drive. Any thoughts to what the problem is?

Best regards,

Scott

Shark Tank - 3/29/13

Sun, 03/31/2013 - 04:56
Really enjoyed Shark Tank this week. I WANT ONE OF THOSE Stop Drop thingies, and was surprised at Robert and Damon's reactions saying that they couldn't see the need for one. Was glad that they got a deal.

And wow, that young girl was impressive! By far one of the best presenters ever on this show!

Using Premiere with Stream, Baby, Stream

Sun, 03/31/2013 - 01:30
I'm trying to use Stream, Baby, Stream with my premiere.

I can do so quite easily with my Windows laptop.
I have not been able to do so with my Linux server.

I'm 99% sure the issue is with my network configuration, which is more complicated than usual.

I have the following devices connected together in series:
  • a phone jack
  • an ADSL2 modem (in bridge mode)
  • a hub
  • a wireless router
  • the premiere
The laptop is connected to the wireless router.
The Linux server is connected to the hub.

My dsl service comes with several static IP addresses. The wireless router and the Linux server have static IP addresses. The laptop and the premiere do not, but instead use DHCP with the wireless router.

The premier can see Stream, Baby, Stream on the laptop, but not the Linux server. I assume that's because the premier is sending out some sort of broadcast request for "showcases" that the router is forwarding to the laptop (inside its local network) but not to the server (outside its local network).

Can anyone explain the problem to me, and even better, provide a solution?

Thanks!
