I have been using a WD 1TB DVR expander with a TiVo Premier for the past 14 months. All of a sudden TiVo is not recognizing it. There had been no changes in the setup. I have now reset the TiVo twice and then tried to run the SMART tests, but even then the drive wasn't recognized. I have reset the TiVo w/o the drive for now, but really want to fix this problem. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Is there any other place where I can purchase the AV breakout cable for the mini??? I will eventually need it when i put one in the family room as that tv doesnt have hdmi.
I see tivo.com has it but the shipping is almost as much as the cable!
Best buy didnt have them
Haven't seen this discussed yet. Right now I have 3 Tivos in the closet, each on a separate remote channel. My old Tivo HD and Tivo Series 3 are on their last legs, so I was thinking of replacing them with a Premiere 4 XL and a Mini (these are distributed through the house, so I need the outputs as well as the tuners - 5 tuners instead of 6 is fine). Do the Minis have the same support for multiple remote channels, and if not do they share the "universal" channel with the regular Tivos? I don't want any surprises with one remote suddenly controlling multiple boxes. :)
I purchased a Western Digital 1.5TB, model WD15ears to upgrade my TIVO model 652160. I copied from the old 160GB to the new 1.5TB using MFS COPY in WINMFS.EXE and expanded the size. It worked really great for about 3 months. Yesterday I turned on TV and TIVO was dead. I powered TIVO off and back on and could not get past POWERING ON screen. I copied from the old 160GB to the new 1.5TB using MFS COPY in WINMFS.EXE but did not expand the size. I installed 1.5TB back into TIVO and all worked great. I copied from the old 160GB to the new 1.5BTB using MFS COPY in WINMFS.EXE and I did expand the size. Again I could not get past POWERING ON screen. I believe it may be a bootpage or kernel problem. I am looking for answers. Where can I get the TIVO software for1.5TB drive? Thanks.
Soul Man, The Exes and Hot in Cleveland start with new episodes on Wednesday June 19th.
What, no thread yet.
I thought it was a very good beginning of the season. I thought I recognized the actor playing Warlow and I confirmed it at IMDb - Rutger Houer!
I just knew when Sookie and Jessica got to the house Bill would be back to his more "normal' looking self. But he now has powers that even he does not know about. And surprise surprise - He can't be killed with a wooden stake! I wonder if any of the other "true death" methods would work on him: silver bullets or beheading (are there any others?)
Anyway, I'm quite glad that its back!!!
only 2 eps before the team is back together? they really cant bear to be without each other can they? i find it really hard to believe that even with the child at risk, that mom would give michael up. she's done some very difficult missions in the past. but maybe in her anger toward mike she was just thinking of herself.
and yes i believe she should have been savvy enough to spot the fake.
i dont remember seeing any subtitles like 'scum drug lord' so i hope they get a chance to put them back on the screen asap lol
First, wow, when I put the title in, this one came up -
Babylon 5, "The Quality of Mercy", S01E21, OAD 8/17/94 *spoilers*
That aside, what an interesting episode.
Sally and Glen. I thought from the start the girls at the school were going to be doing some initiation thing on her.
Peggy. Poor Peggy. She gets shafted by Don again and her great work taken away. Did he really do that to save the day or because he didn't want her to get credit.
I think she needs to find a new company to work for with no Ted or Don around. I couldn't believe they were sneaking off to the movies together. But then the way that office works everyone with any position is off in the middle of the day for hours on end. It's crazy.
Bobby Benson had me confused. I need to rewatch that whole bit with him and Peter again.
Just a heads up. the Stream will not currently work with MPEG4 content. Our system uses MPEG4 for cable channels, and MPEG2 for broadcast. The only ones that will stream are those encoded in MPEG2.
Not sure if TiVo is even aware of this issue.
Final season of "Futurama" starts at 10:00PM EDT on Wed. 06/19 on Comedy Central. First 2 eps. in a 1 hour block, repeated at 12:01 and 2:03.
I started having problems with my TiVo HD so I called TiVo Customer support and they told me to Clear program information & To Do List. I figured I would do that before I did "Clear & delete everything" next. Well I did it and now the TiVo displays this screen and is in an endless loop. Im not sure if I need to buy a new HD and re-image or not. I had no success trying to enter the kick start codes either.
definately getting a tivo tommorrow, but debating buying the premiere 4 and upgrading the HD or buying the xl4. when I look at it on the surface it looks pretty good a 2tb hd from newegg for 80 bucks and get the premiere 4 for 250 and by the time i pay tax on the tivo. Im still saving about 80 dollars vs buying the premiere xl4 out right with maryland tax but is it worth voiding the warranty and not having the thx? With the money I would save I could get 2 minis instead if 1.
The only thing im a little jittery about is upgrading a hd for the first time in a tivo and screwing it up
I live in the Indianapolis area and use the OTA to get HD local channels.
WISH-TV has suddenly stopped updating their schedule data - Regular Directv and other OTA schedules show up fine but all there is on WISH-TV is "Regular Schedule".
Glitch or some contractual thing?
I have not seen much discussion of games around here for years. However, I'd like to start some discussion/suggestion.
I love playing the games that are on my Tivos. Wordsmith and Rockswap are my favorites. Wordsmith is considerably different on the Premier as you cannot see the tiles that will be revealed until you play a tile.
Rockswap annoys me when all the levels are completed the game simply offers a congratulations and moves on. It seems to me that if like Wordsmith it stored the score, or date, etc it would offer some additional challenge.
What do you think?
I just got a XL4 and transferred my season pass manager from my old XL to the XL4. The list transferred for the most part (a few said corrupted, I am just going to add those again) and my shows are now set to be recorded. Except for one thing.
Some of my shows say "New" even though they are not, when I go to the guide it doesn't show as new; at first I though the guide had it wrong. This is sort of creating the issue of defeating the purpose of 4 tuners since real new shows are not being recorded because of conflicts. For example, The Voice is recording this evening although it is a repeat from last week. The guide shows it is not new, and I have The Voice set to record only "New". Yet, my To Do List says it is "New". Is there anything I can do? If it is just because the TiVo is new and will go back to normal soon, I will just adjust my To Do List, I was doing that weekly with 2 tuners anyway.
What to do? What to do!?:eek:
I'll watch something else, of course. I will miss the show, and may go insane though.
I started a Kickstart 58 yesterday. After less than 5 minutes, it went to a screen saying "Installing service update."
18 hours later, it is still on the same screen. Is it safe to pull the plug and reboot?
I just hooked up a new Vizio HD tv to an older series 2 TiVo and the picture is black and white and very poor quality. this is thru the r/w/yellow cables since series 2 doesn't have hdmi. I had another lcd tv hooked up fine - what gives?
I have two TiVo Premiere XL4's utilizing Motorola cableCARD's. I noticed today that the firmwares are quite different from one to the other. Recently my cable company pushed out a firmware update to both of my Motorola tuning adapters but not the cableCARDS. I have a pretty good relationship with my cable company and wondered if I should give them a call and ask them to push out the latest firmware to both cableCARDS or just leave it alone. I have had some issues with one TiVo intermittently with regards to tuning some channels and this happens to be the one with the older firmware. I've documented the reported statistics as they appear for each in the TiVo CableCARD Status screen.
FW Version: 02.65, 02.01, 03.25
HW Version: 0469927002
I have a fantasy that I could upgrade my way way old-school 80GB TiVo to a 160GB using MFStools or wahtever that stuff is.
But then I am afraid that the "Lifetime Service" status will disappear.
What should I do?
=== === ===
Does anyone want to buy an 80GB analog TiVo with Lifetime service?
