Upgrade to TiVo Desktop Plus

Sat, 01/12/2013 - 15:36
So I have been trying to update the TiVo desktop software to TiVo Desktop Plus. I own a key for it that I bought for a series 3 device. This process is how it is supposed to be done.

The menu is not available on my computer:
3. Open the free version of TiVo Desktop software and select "Upgrade to
TiVo Desktop Plus" from the "Help" menu. Enter the License key provided on
the "Order confirmation" page and enjoy.

Does any one know the reg key for this? I could not find an ini file to add it too :confused:

Vanishing act, my PC under Now Playing

Sat, 01/12/2013 - 14:26
I am a long time user of Tivo Desktop, in fact I paid for Tivo Desktop Plus when it first came out.

I have recently upgraded to a Premiere XL4, quite often when I transfer a movie to my Tivo Shared folder when I go to Now Playing on the Tivo, my PC is no longer on the list.

Usually if I log off of Windows 7, and log back in the PC reappears under Now Playing and I can then transfer the show or movie to the Tivo. My question is, is there a quicker way to "refresh" the Now Playing list to get the PC to reappear? Leaving the Now Playing list and go back to it does nothing, I believe rebooting my Tivo or resetting my router also works. I was just wondering if there was a quick way to do this, from Windows or the Tivo?

V106 Not In Your Account

Sat, 01/12/2013 - 11:40
Every few days one of my premiers starts complaining that I can't get to my other premiers, the other premiers on not on my account. Nothing has changed on my account (according to tivo.com) and my MAK is correct on all of my DVRs. A reboot seems to fix the problem.

It is getting old having to constantly reboot these DVRs.

They are all connected via ethernet switch not through a router, so I am not sure what to do...

Is this a known problem with the current release ?

Banshee, 01-11-2012, Pilot (on Cinemax)

Sat, 01/12/2013 - 11:22
The first episode of this new show was broadcast Thursday, 1-11-2012, on Cinemax.

This was a good show. It had action, sex, and mystery. I hope they can maintain the show quality.

Give it a try. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Does comcast/cable cards still require an installer?

Sat, 01/12/2013 - 10:41
So I'm very tempted by an offer from Tivo for a premier but I'd need to get a new cable card for it. I know when they brought down the cable cards for my TivoHD they required an installer to put them in my Tivo.(that was back in 07) Are they still requiring this or can you just go down to the local office and pick one up?

Fringe - 1/11/13 - The Boy Must Live

Sat, 01/12/2013 - 10:12
It's all coming to an end, episodes 99 and 100 next week. I've loved this show from episode 1.

So, episode 98, I'm a bit confused. Why would the boy just walk off the train? I'm like, "Finally, some answers..." And he poofs. Looking forward to next week.

Mistakenly Ordered HBO Through TiVo - How

Sat, 01/12/2013 - 09:46
Today I checked my Comcast cable bill and there was a charge for HBO. I know I never ordered HBO and so I called to cancel. They told me it was done through the TiVo. They cancelled HBO but I still owe the prorated charge.

I have 2 young kids so it is possible they clicked something by mistake. Is it possible to order HBO without entering a password or something? Is there a way to disable HBO ordering completely? The Comcast guy mentioned that a movie have been ordered through the TiVo. Recently I ordered a movie via Amazon and had it sent to the TiVo for the first time. could that have triggered the Comcast order? I'm confused. Thanks.

'Vampire Diaries' gets a spinoff series

Sat, 01/12/2013 - 03:56
http://www.deadline.com/2013/01/cw-e...by-julie-plec/

Quote: The CW is piloting The Originals, a potential spinoff of the network’s flagship series The Vampire Diaries, in consideration for next season. The project, from Vampire Diaries co-creator/executive producer Julie Plec, will be introduced as an upcoming episode of Vampire Diaries that will air April 25, serving as a potential backdoor pilot.

Unable to properly fast forward on one station

Sat, 01/12/2013 - 00:38
I have two different Tivos. Both experience different problem fast forwarding on one particular channel but not others.

The problem is the worst on my wife's Tivo, which is an S3 HD . Every time she fast forwards when she hits play she ends up exactly where she started unless she fast forwards well beyond (2 minutes past!) the place where she actually wants to go. And even then it is really hard to get playback to resume at a particular point, such as the end of an ad break. This is incredibly frustrating for my wife and as we all know, an unhappy wife is not a good thing!

On my Series 3, which is older, fast forwarding on this channel is more reliable but I occasionally see the same issue. Also on my S3 for some reason it takes 2-3 seconds for volume to come back up when I resume play after fast forward.

The channel is CBUT (2). Our cable provider is Wave Broadband in WA. Both Tivos have two cablecards.

I would love any kind of solution, workaround, suggestion, etc. You are my only hope! :)

Had strange issue -- stopped recording on all tuners, no output

Fri, 01/11/2013 - 21:32
Last night/early this morning on my Premiere 4 at around 12:45AM, I had noticed that the video was hung on something I was watching (actually dubbing to my other recorder to watch faster than realtime then I could nuke it).

Anyway, going back to live TV or trying to show any of the recordings showed a completely black screen. I *was* able to stop a recording, and while in this state I was able to successfully transfer the (partial) recording to my computer, and it was complete, at least for that small section.

I even tried starting a new recording, and let it go until the scheduled recordings were done.

What really happened was no recording was happening after the problem started… (All of the recordings were truncated at the same time, and the new recording wasn't there at all after a reboot, since there was no signal).

I did see a different message when I was trying to change channels on the 4th tuner when the problem was happening -- something along the lines of it not being able to get the signal, "trying again".. Not the normal "Searching for cable signal" message.

A reboot fixed things (but of course I lost one recording. Luckily on my other Tivo I had in the buffer one of the shows recording, and was able to get the rest of ONE of the other shows)..

Weirdest problem I've seen on a Tivo.

Note I was doing transferring at this time, and possibly APPROXIMATELY at the same time, one of my transfers was failing with the same weird issues that sometimes happen -- e.g. it can't transfer from paused point. I get the same weird errors in kmttg once in a while, and usually just waiting a few minutes fixes it. This might be completely unrelated, but it was happening at about the same time.

No Suggestions after a week

Fri, 01/11/2013 - 20:58
I installed 2 tivos last week. After hitting about 20 shows with thumbs, I have only 2 scheduled suggestions on one box and zero scheduled suggestions on the other box. Tivo help had me do a bunch of stuff a few days ago include wipe out my thumbs and start over. Both boxes are TWC cable card and tuning adapter setups. Any ideas?:confused:

Channel changing issue

Fri, 01/11/2013 - 20:26
My series 2 has refused to change channels since I changed my channel lineup to the full premium and HD lineup. Before this everything was recording fine, in the 2-78 channel range, but now when I choose ANY channel to record it says it is recording the selected channel, but after recording and trying to view the channel it's not the right channel. I added the IR cable and went through the channel changing tests where it says to watch to see if the tv channel changes. The weird thing is that the channel on the cable box changes but the tv does not.
Any ideas?

Thank you, Dave
