I enjoyed this episode.
It was nice to have the characters confirm my thinking that another news organization saying they have 2 sources doesn't count as one of your sources.
The whole "this is going to be funny later" comment with the BB was highly amusing.
I did think it was strange that McAvoy would eat some pot cookies at a party he was hosting.
I really enjoyed this episode. There seemed to be subtle humor all throughout.
What of the time bomb watch? Just pure fun by the writers? Or more to it?
Well Last night, I decided to just stop trying to use the TIVO Wireless N Adapter.
Every couple of weeks it would drop the connection to the network. I think it was related when the IP Lease Expired. I had set it to a static IP Address to try to avoid any issues.
Without fail every 2 weeks it would crap out and the TIVO would get DNS / GAteware errors. The Box could not connect to the TIVO Service anymore.
In the end, I decided to take out the TIVO Wireless N Adapter and use a Dlink DAP-1522 Wireless Bridge. Haven't had any issues since.
Just posting my own personal experiience with the Wirelss Adapter. Everyones milage may vary.
I used to be able to play my Tivo recordings using WMP, now it just hangs and must be killed.
Any suggestions on how to debug this?
Windows 7 64 bit
WMP 12 (the latest)
Hello - Looking for folks with experience using Apple AirPort Extreme and Express. I am looking at using one of each to improve the wireless reach in my home...I am hearing that adding one or two expresses to the network is useful.
How does your TiVO perform streaming HD? I am using a Premiere Elite
All of a sudden, tonight, my TivoHD is showing horizontal lines no matter what I'm watching... Live TV, paused TV, a recording, a menu, etc.
This is appearing using both the Composite and Component video outputs. So I don't think it is the TV, because they are on different input sources, and others (DVD, Wii, etc) do not show this problem. In fact, the Wii was tested using the same Composite input on the TV. It only showed the horizontal lines when the Tivo was being used as the source.
Here is a video of the issue as caught by my camera on my phone. It is especially noticeable around 0:13 & 0:14. I fear there is an internal problem with the Tivo, unrealted to the typcial hard drive failures I've experienced in the past. This unit is exactly 5 years old this month.
Any ideas as to the cause & solution to the problem?
So I'm seeing these things called "commercials" during the baseball game broadcasts that I've been tuned into... during those commercials there've been commercials stating that the NFL Sunday Ticket is now "FREE" with DirecTV.
Am I mis-hearing this? Has it gotten to the point that DirecTV is no longer able to command the premium fees that they used to get for the Sunday Ticket package?
I know a few years ago they had the NASCAR Track/Race pass package that they used to charge for and they wound up having to make that free for all DirecTV subscribers as they couldn't get enough paid customers for it and/or couldn't turn it into anything other than a loss leader for themselves. Is that what the Sunday Ticket is for them now too?
I'm sure that there are up charges of some sort with this "free" plan, but I'm just amazed that the NFL and/or DirecTV have gotten to the point that they have to offer the games for free. I guess it's a sign of the damage that has been done to the package compliments of the NFL RedZone channel existence on other providers.
I had a slice upgrade to 6.4a go south on me and now the only way I get video is to record the program???
Anyway, can I just copy the root and active partitions, leaving the media partitions alone, from a working unit on to the bad drive and have a working drive with the old recordings? Can it be that simple???
Or, does somebody know something about only having live video if recording the program? It's not the unit. I have tried several and the problem remains, regardless of which HDVR2 I install it in.
I have a Tivo HD that displays a snowy image only on cable channels. What you'd expect from a weak signal. I tested my cable connection with another identical Tivo and no problem so not a weak incoming signal. OTA channels are just fine. This is Time Warner analog cable no cable cards or tuning adapters. I'm guessing maybe a bad RF input? If so can it be replaced. Any ideas appreciated.
Is the only way to do this is by pressing the zoom button?
Seems like there should be some kind of Exit button or why can't I press left until it goes back to the recorded show?
How do I remove the suggestion that pops up when I pause? I want to leave TiVo suggestions on, but I don't want this suggestion to display when I pause.
Is there a button I can use to go directly to My Shows rather than having to press the TiVo button twice? I have a Harmony 900 remote and I read somewhere that a List button was mapped on one of the TiVo models in the Harmony database, but I haven't seen one yet.
This is a show that's only on DirecTV as far as I know. It stars Chloe Sevigny, who plays a transvestite hit person. It's really quite good IMO. I know it sounds strange, but If you have a chance, you really should check it out. Be forewarned, it has graphic nudity, with Chloe showing her breasts frequentlly and then panning down to male parts down below. Please, Lord, don't let that be Chloe!
I remember hearing about a big update in the pipeline. Talk about more HD screens. Was the fall mentioned as the timeline?
Here's the story. I bought and then upgraded a used sony svr2000 with two 120gig HD's with the success of that upgrade I attempted to upgrade to a 9th tee airnet card to access the internet wirelessly for the daily programing and after some bad advice, or my lack of understanding telnetting into the tivo and ping it. When I pinged it it rebooted and was no longer able to call out using the modem but I could use it for manual recording. I bought another svr2000 a few years later and this time I used a 9th tee ethernet card and it successfully uses my broadband cable for the daily calls.
My question is that since my two 120 gig HD's are still good and already tivo formatted, can I simply put them in the other svr2000 without doing all the steps I originally did to increase the storage capacity?
I think all the mods were to the HD's and not the motherboard. Keep in mind it was YEARS ago when I did this upgrade. I do still have the mfstool cd and don't have a problem redoing the steps, I'm just looking for the easy way out. I just don't know if the bigger drives are "married" to the old mobo.
I recently received this letter from Cablevision (Optimum) --
"Important Information About Your Cable Service: As of
August 21, 2012, all of your televisions will require a digital
cable box in order to continue to receive service. Without a
digital cable box, your TV cannot access iO TV (access is
limited with a CableCARD)."
I have 2 Tivo's in my house -- but what concerns me is my "older" one (Series 2 DT DVR). It is currently set up with two inputs -- one directly via coax to the DVR, and the other through the cable box to the DVR. That allows me to tape 2 shows simultaneously (which has become more common in the past few seasons). As of 8/21, the direct connection will no longer work. I had this verified by the cable rep.
It sounds to me there are only 2 options left to me (unless I am missing something here) -- either purchase a 2nd cable box (which Cablevision will provide free for 1 year) or upgrade this Tivo to a new one. This particular TV is not a HDTV... yet.
I think I've found the one I want to buy... what I am wondering is:
#1 Is this a good Tivo to purchase, since I'm new to Tivo, I've done as much research as you can... but never actually owned one... weigh in and help a NEWBIE out.
#2 What's the right price for this unit with Lifetime service? I know what the whole thing would cost if I bought it retail... what's a good price point if I buy it used?
Thanks in advance for your help! :up:
Note: this might be a change for the west coast only
Originally, NBC had planned to air the Women's Marathon on Sunday at 6 AM Pacific time. However, because they decided to air the Federer-Murray tennis match starting at 6 Pacific, the marathon will now air live in the west, starting at 3 AM Pacific on NBC.
Found this one at Best Buy:
Western Digital - My Book Essential 2TB External USB 3.0/2.0 Hard Drive
Is this drive Tivo compatible?:confused:
I recently moved to a home that won't support DirecTV, so I've gotten the next best thing Comcast + TiVo. For the most part it's fine, but with this new setup my Samsung UN46D8000 no longer automatically switches into 3D mode as it did when I had the DirecTV HD DVR. I can manually switch it into the correct mode, but thats not ideal. Since this is the same TV, same HDMI cable is this because TiVo does not adequately support this feature, or is it due to the Comcast input?
I contacted TiVo support but they just blame my TV -
Thank you for contacting TiVo Customer Support. I would be glad to help you with your 3D issues today.
The TiVo Premiere does support MPEG-4 3D programming. This seems to be more of an output format issue on the TV end. Side by side 3D is a type of 3D (there are a plethora of different formats, just check any 3D YouTube video on your computer and it will give you about 5 options on how you would like to view the 3D).
I suggest putting on a 3D channel, your 3D glasses, and using your TV remote to toggle settings in the TV. Maybe select "side by side" viewing and see what happens. If that fails, I would actually suggest contacting your TV manufacturer support and have them walk you through the steps. If that fails, feel free to contact us back and we can continue helping you resolve your issue
