Can someone help? KMTTG error?

Mon, 06/10/2013 - 12:29

I set my clock back all the way to February 13th as I have had to do for the last few weeks. I even tried to set it back beyond that. Then I tried downloading in java instead of curl. I restarted my computer. My internet connection is obviously fine. It was working less than an hour ago and now, I get this....

Anyone have any ideas?

Game of Throne character accents....does it matter?

Mon, 06/10/2013 - 10:55
Since the show takes place in a fictional land and a fictional time, do the accents of the characters matter to you?

Do the accents HAVE to be British or could it work if the characters had various American accents?

Shows you are no longer enthusiatic about but still watch

Mon, 06/10/2013 - 09:59
I recorded the season premiere of Falling Skies last night and I realized, that I just don't really care about it. But I'll still watch, to see if it's worth watching still. The first two seasons I really looked forward to watching that series.

Are there shows that used to be one of your favorites but now, you are just kind of watch because you always have?

BTW, we might have had this thread before. Sorry about that if it is.

six WD20EADS-00S2B0 HARCHV2AA 2TB Western Digital hard drives - PM me an offer:

Mon, 06/10/2013 - 07:21

six WD20EADS-00S2B0 HARCHV2AA 2TB Western Digital hard drives - PM me an offer:


I just received a shipment of six WD20EADS-00S2B0 HARCHV2AA 2TB Western Digital hard drives, as replacements for some degraded/defective ones I sent back. They're factory recertified replacements, still sealed.

PM me if you'd like to make me an offer. If you'd like, I could pre-image them for either TiVo HD (model TCD 652160), or 2-tuner Premiere (model TCD 746320), or there's many Do-It-Yourself for free methods you can get the details of which, around the forums. I don't need them, because I already bought EURS AV-GP replacements, when Newegg had them on special.

I know some don't like/trust 4K drives, so I figured these 512-byte sector ones may be of interest to some of you.

OHHHH! Don got busted!

Geez, Sylvia, why couldn't you have just sent a Thank-You note? :p;)

Megan: "I'll talk to [Sally]"
Don: "No!" :D:D

Well, Don seems to have talked Sally out of this for now, we shall see if it rears its ugly head later...

..oh, and the rat blood on Peggy's floor was NASTY!

Only 2 more eps til the season finale! :(

Game of Thrones S3E10 06/09/2013 'Mhysa'

Mon, 06/10/2013 - 06:10
They really short-changed us on Jaime's return. I wanted to see Tywin's reaction!

I was wrong about Tyrion and Sansa going to Winterfell, but it sure looks like Arya is going down the path of being a killer.

And now we know how Edmure spent his wedding night and Blackfish is still alive.

How did Arya get behind the guys that put the direwolf's head on Robb's corpse? that part was a little forced.

I'm sure I'll have more to say ;)

$79.99 Mini at Home Depot.com??? OOS for now

Mon, 06/10/2013 - 05:05
I thought that it was strange, but when I clicked on the advertising link http://www.homedepot.com/p/t/2041952...0#.UbWfXPmsiSo, I saw the $79.99 price.

The item name says "TiVo 4 Tuner Mini Whole Home Streaming DVR" but the picture, Tivo item number and description below it, are the Tivo Mini. I'm sure that it's a place holder. When the item comes into stock, the price and item name, will be adjusted.

Mad Men on Time Warner 6/9/13

Sun, 06/09/2013 - 23:37
Here's a heads up for TW subscribers on the West coast.

I have been recording this for years on Channel 479 AMCHD on Sundays at 7PM.
It did not record tonight and I had no upcoming episodes. The reason given in the recording history was: Program removed from Channel Guide. A search for Mad Men found it now on Channel 479 AMCPHD at 10PM. Same channel but a different description. I had to delete the old season pass and create a new one.

Strange V58 error problem

Sun, 06/09/2013 - 22:25
Yesterday I turned in one of my three Cox Cablecards. I sold the unit and no longer needed it so...a big $2 a month savings.

Anyway, today my Elite started giving me the "Channel not authorized, V58" message, along with a black screen. A reboot fixed the problem, but only for a couple of hours.

I called the 800 number for Cox cablecard activation. I explained to the rep my problem and told him that I had just turned in a CC, the day before. I asked him was it just a coincidence.
He said "I see the problem. The card that you turned in was the number one card of the three". I think that he called it a Lead card. He switched the number three card to number one and it fixed the error instantly.

I have never run into this problem before and I thought that I would pass it on. Honestly, I thought that he just sent a "Hit" to the card, but he said no, he didn't.

Why are TiVOs no longer sold in Australia?

Sun, 06/09/2013 - 22:08
There are a lot of online articles about TiVOs being 'dead' in Australia. Are they still supported? I have a TiVO and I'm thinking of buying a second one but don't want to spend the money if they will soon die!

Tivo N Wireless adapter as Wireless Router

Sun, 06/09/2013 - 21:57
Hi all,

I have a B/G wireless router.
I bought 2 Tivo N adapters and configured one as a Bridge (connected to a port on my port on my wireless modem) the other N adapter is connected to my Tivo. They are connected as per the user guide and working perfectly.

My question is: Since the Bridged N adapter is acting as a wireless router and my PC can see it, can I use that for PC wireless internet connection?
When I try to connect to the Tivo signal on my PC is asks for my security password.

Anyone know how to connect?

Fallingg Skies 6/9/13 "On Thin Ice/Collateral Damage"

Sun, 06/09/2013 - 21:32
Well, THAT was annoying! The recording of the first episode cut out with "So what's this bad boy supposed to do, anyway?" and the second one started with the camera pulling back, apparently after the response.

So...what's that bad boy supposed to do, anyway?

Incompatible video signal

Sun, 06/09/2013 - 19:42
We moved our TiVo Premiere upstairs today from the downstairs location, where all was working well. The Premiere replaced an S3 HDTiVo which was working fine with Netflix and Amazon and YouTube.

The Premiere has been giving me "incompatible video signal" messages when I try to watch, for example, Portlandia or Arrested Development. It's fine with old episodes of Cheers or movies.

The connections comprise coax into the Premiere, HDMI into a Denon receiver, and HDMI out to the Sharp Aquos TV. Occasionally, we get audio (of Arrested Development) and no video. We have assured the quality of the connection between all the HDMI cables, all of which functioned perfectly before the Premiere swap.


How well will a Tivo Premiere work alongside a GoogleTV-enabled HDTV?

Sun, 06/09/2013 - 19:01
I have a Tivo Premiere unit (with cableCARD) which is the standard cable box for Grande Cable in Austin, TX.

I'm considering purchasing a new HDTV, and have been particularly drawn to the new LG HDTVs, largely due to the qwerty remote, and the true LED (local dimming) features. However, these TVs are also built-in with Google TV.

How well would this work with a Tivo box with a cablecard? It would seem that the Tivo in this setup is already the central unit; would having Google TV be a conflict (would it be attempting to provide TV guide data, DVR functionality, etc), or would it work as an additional layer to add TV-App functionality, Google Play, Web Browser, etc, without issue?

Trying to decide whether combining the two is going to be overkill and cause a problem... Thanks for any suggestions.

Premiere owners with Time Warner

Sun, 06/09/2013 - 18:44
I have 2 Premieres that I strictly use with an attic antenna. We recently sold our house and will be moving into a rental temporarily. I can't install my attic antenna at the rental so I'm looking at subscribing to cable and where I live that's Time Warner. They use SDV here so a tuning adapter would be required. They charge $2.50 per month for the cable card and tuning adapter.

I've never used a cable card but it seems as though every cable card thread on here is one problem after a other. So what are my chances of having a positive experience? Is there such a thing with a TiVo, a cable card and Time Warner? I'd really prefer to keep my TiVos vs the rental stuff from Time Warner.

Transer Videos to external hard drive for Tivo playback?

Sun, 06/09/2013 - 18:30
I've been using an LX195 home server with Streambaby for kids videos which has worked fine.

However, would there be a way to remove the home server? Having a dedicated box for this purpose seems to be overkill for me.

I was thinking about adding an external hard drive to the Premiere which my kids share. I have about 75 movies in MP4 which total about 150GB.

What's the fastest/easiest way to get them onto the Tivo? Can I put them on a harddrive and then just connect to the Tivo? Would the Tivo see the movies?

The other option would be to manually transfer them all but it could take several days at least. That process just from testing a movie seems quite slow.

Please let me know if you have any ideas. Thanks.

Changing "Keep Until" date trashed metadata

Sun, 06/09/2013 - 18:10
I had some movies I recorded more than a year ago marked KUID (2 "Boston Blackie" and one "Falcon"). I decided that, while I may eventually watch them, I would rather they go away than miss recording something else, so I changed the date to today's date. Didn't notice at the time, but now the show up in the NPL with the name "Rec:69 TCM 10:45AM". I used kmttg to get the metadata for one of them, posted below.

Code: time : 2012-05-26T14:45:00Z
iso_duration : PT1H15M
showingBits : 0
displayMajorNumber : 69
callsign : TCM
programId : 147192_1656750080 Note the programId. It is completely bogus. As a comparison, the programId for a different "Boston Blackie" film ( never set to KUID) is MV000156570000.

The TiVo is running 20.3.1
