Well at least they finally showed some of the nastiness the live feeders have been treated to.

Last night was not much of a shocker. Everyone (including Elissa) knew she would be the target this week. Hopefully the veto episode will have a little more action.

TIVO Premier Lifetime Subscription $199

Sun, 07/07/2013 - 15:08
I purchased a used Tivo premier off craigslist for $40. The previous owner had the Monthly service $14.99 1-year commitment; month to month thereafter. After the 1 year commitment Tivo offered them the chance to upgrade to lifetime for $199 which they declined. When I called to switch the account into my name the $199 lifetime service offer on the account was still valid and I was able to purchase it.

series 3 won't transfer from premiere

Sun, 07/07/2013 - 13:13
Sorry if this a repeat but I couldn't find anything. We have two series 3s and a premiere networked. We can transfer from 3s to premiere no problem. And from 3 to 3 no problem. The problem is from premiere to 3s. TiVo says it will add to list even though there is nothing else transferring and the blue light will stay on after you remove todo list but the blue light will not go out. Sometimes you have to reboot and maybe the light will go out, maybe not. This just seems to have started within the last 2 weeks. Before, worked fine. Have not changed any thing on our end, network, etc. I will list some info about the machines below. Thanks for any help in this matter.

Sun, 07/07/2013 - 07:21
I have some .avi files that i sometimes watch on my laptop and sometimes watch on one of my tv's off one of my tivo premiers. I store these files on an external hdd on my network and use tivo desktop to transfer them to my tivo.
They still play fine on a computer but the audio is missing when i try to play them through either of my 2 premiers.
Thanks for your help.

R.I.P. Boxee: 3 lessons to learn from Boxee’s demise

Sat, 07/06/2013 - 20:05

Pretty fair analysis looking at some of the mistakes made by Boxee. TiVo appears to be avoiding many of them which may be the reason they are still around after so many years...

80gb PS3 that plays PS1 & PS2 games with original boxing materials for sale !

Sat, 07/06/2013 - 17:38
So ya, seems I need to sell some more of my personal belongings to make bill money since my family had a few hard hits this month.

Any questions you have may be asked here or via the ask seller a question thing on eBay.

All details about other included items can alo be found at the listing, Ty.

Even if you yourself are not interested please forward this post / eBay link to any of your friends who you think may be interested.

This is also mentioned in the listing but one thing that makes my system unique is the backwards compatability since this system is an early model and from what I understand, this is something removed in later models.

Sony Playstation 3 PS3 Console Fully Backward Compatible w/ PS1 & PS2 Games

Also, yes... to some of you the price may seem high but it's not just the system being sold there are other items. That said, it is an Or Best Offer listing so it's not like Im sayin pay me whats listed heh.

How can I extend/boost the HDMI Output to go 40'

Sat, 07/06/2013 - 17:20
Does anyone know a reliable way to extend/boost the HDMI output from a TiVo Premiere XL4 to go 40' or more over an HDMI cable to a TV?

I'm using a 40' Monoprice RedMere HDMI cable but the signal from my TiVo is to weak. I see mostly static and about 5% of the setup screen.

However, my Blu-ray player has no problem with the same 40' distance.

I would expect there has to be a reliable device that would boost the signal strength from my TiVo enough to go 40' but I have no idea what it would be.

Please let me know if you have any thoughts or ideas.

Installed pyTivo - Now What?

Sat, 07/06/2013 - 16:31
I have installed pyTivo successfully on my Ubuntu server.

It starts fine and I can see my server when I go to MyShows on my Tivo.

But how do I see all my Tivo shows, in order to transfer them to my Ubuntu server??

I tried going to my local ip in firefox and the only thing that shows up is 'Settings'.

Is there a gnome GUI that I use to transfer files from my Tivo to Ubuntu? So confused.

Thank you!

Received a small 2in black box with Tivo Logo by FedEx ??

Sat, 07/06/2013 - 14:18
FedEx showed up today with a package. It contained a Black felt bag with a small 2 inch square box with fold out AC prongs, DC car plug and 2 USB ports. It has a TIVO LOGO on it. Also 2 USB cables with different mini plugs on them ans a small adapter to go from a mini to a larger type of plug.

There was NO paperwork, no instructions, no nothing. My best guess is that it is a universal phone charger?? (by the way none of the adapters fit my phone)

Just wondering why I got it?? Never ordered it and can't find it anywhere on Tivo site??

Do they ever offer service discounts for new customers?

Sat, 07/06/2013 - 10:37
$15/month or $500 lifetime is a little hard for me to justify for (seemingly) just guide data. Do they ever offer service discounts for new customers? Thanks.

Transfer $6.95 plan to Premiere 4?

Sat, 07/06/2013 - 09:07
I have a Premiere on the $6.95 plan, and am considering upgrading to a Premiere 4 so i can add a mini to a spare bedroom.

Before I buy a new Premiere 4 from Amazon.com, I was curious if anyone has recently been able to transfer to the TSN for a Premiere on this plan to a newer model?

I saw several older threads from 2009 and earlier and know it could be done in the past but policies change.

Thank you

Premiere 4 Keeps Crashing

Sat, 07/06/2013 - 09:02
My Premiere 4 started crashing (re-starting) last week. It would still be under warrantee except I upgraded it to a 2TB drive myself as soon as I got it (March, 2013). I think it is crashing when I press the TiVo button (but not every time; I can't intentionally reproduce this) to look at My Shows but it may have done it on its own a couple of times. I am using the HD menu. Does anyone have any advice for me?

Can anyone help me with Music, Photo & Video Transfers?

Sat, 07/06/2013 - 08:40
I am using Tivo Desktop version 2.8.2 (412369). I have a directory under Videos to transfer that has about 20 videos in it. I have checked the box to automatically download the videos to my quad tuner DVR, but the DVR only shows 3 files. The Tivo :confused:desktop application says the programs will show up in the bottom of the "now playing list" if they are not automatically download, but I do not see the videos in the correct folder or at the bottom on the "now playing list". I am sending the videos to my premier quad tuner Tivo. I have looked for the videos using the standard Tivo menu and the HD Tivo menu and all I see are the three files. The files are all saved as mp4 files. IS there a limit on the number of files or type of file like ***** or mp3?
Thanks
:confused:

Cox Oklahoma City SDV and Tuning Adapter

Sat, 07/06/2013 - 00:04
A while back, COX sent us letters asking us to pick up tuning adapters for an impending SDV switchover which was supposed to happen on 6/27/13 for Oklahoma City.

At first, the TAs were not available and the cox reps didn't seem to know anything about tuning adapters, let alone the switchover.
After waiting a couple of weeks, I passed by a local cox store and found they were available and picked one up for my Premiere XL.

Anyway, I hooked up the TA and called Cox again to provision it and this time got someone that seemed to know a bit more about TAs and cable cards and he said he would give it hit and come the switchover, the blinking light would go solid and the device would be functional.
However, 6/27 came and nothing happened, one week later still nothing. I can still tune to all the previous channels on my Premiere and there has been no further update from Cox.

I unplugged the TA and shelved it. Just wondering if anyone out there may have any more current information.

Thanks.

exceeding format limits

Fri, 07/05/2013 - 23:11
i know on fat 32 if you try to copy a file bigger than 4 gig you get an error unable to write file once the pc gets to the 4 gig byte of the file

and i think on the mac it immediately said unable to copy file without even trying to copy.

i was wondering what happens on the tivo if you try to record over the partition size limit if you get any warnings.

i have a series 4 based tivo and lately there has been a lot of redundancies in the repetition of deadliest especially the same 2 or 3 episodes and even episodes that dont match titles and even corruption of the signal (blip) like you get when a satellite transition does not go smoothly yes cable gets their signal from satellites and repackages the signal for cable).

the box had a 320 gig drive and it is now approaching 400 gig of a 2 tb drive and i wonder if when the drive gets fuller than 320 gig there is no warning such as a drive failure or such if all that happens is if it writes over old data like the buffer does and security dvr does.
