Cable card not getting all channels

I have a comcast M card in my Premiere. It has worked fine for about a month. Tivo rebooted and now I am not getting all of my channels. I am not getting any about 100. What do i do?

PyTivo transfer issue

Fri, 05/10/2013 - 03:12
I have a S2 Tivo and an S3 Tivo. I installed pyTivo and set it up according to the installation instructions.

Both Tivos see pyTivo.

The S3 can pull: 1) HD & SD video in standard Tivo format (.tivo files), 2) HD video that has been decrypted (.mpg), and HD video that has been decrypted & re-encoded as mpeg4 (.mp4).

The S2 can pull: 1) SD video in standard Tivo format (.tivo files), 2) HD video that has been decrypted (.mpg), and HD video that has been decrypted & re-encoded as mpeg4 (.mp4).

ISSUES
A) The S2 cannot pull HD video in standard Tivo format (.tivo files). The transfer never starts -- the S2 says there was an error.

B) I cannot push anything from pyTivo. When I pull up the pyTivo home page in my browser, I only see "Web Configuration". I do not see the sections "Pull from Tivos" or "Push form video shares". In the pyTivo box, after "scanning for tivos", it lists my two Tivos. So it sees them, but they do not appear on the home page.

Live TV cut off by recording

Thu, 05/09/2013 - 22:40
This is a weird one - I was watching the live TV buffer today on my P4 - (no other tuners being used), and had scheduled to record something on the same channel I was watching, starting soon.

I was probably 20 minutes behind real time in the buffer - when the recorder commandeered the tuner I was viewing and re-changed the channel - (to the same one I was watching) and started recording.

No other tuners were being used.

The entire buffer was blown out and skipped up to the current real time moment as it began recording. As a result, that 20 minutes I had left queued up were gone.

Why didn't it user any one of the other idle, THREE tuners just sitting there? :confused:

Premiere XL4 and Mini connectivity question

Thu, 05/09/2013 - 21:37
Hi all, I'm seriously considering pulling the trigger on a XL4 and mini to replace my two cable company provided crappy dvr's. I just want to confirm that i am un derstanding what I have read on connecting these two together. The XL4 will be in the living room. I happen to have my incoming cable, cable modem and router right next to where the XL4 will be. The incoming cable is on a splitter, with one split going to cable modem and other to dvr. In the bedroom I don't have any Ethernet connections, just the coax cable going to the dvr. So if I understand right, all I would need to do is plug the XL4 into the router(with of course the coax going to XL4) and the mini into the coax cable in the bedroom and these will communicate? I don't need to purchase a moCa adapter to make these work together? Thanks so much!

I read that made me smile I really hope it happens. Especially as a limited run with less episodes. Damn it we need this to happen.

What should I be watching out for?

Thu, 05/09/2013 - 19:11
Hello,

I am about to take the plunge for a Mini. What should I be watching out for?

Our home has effectively one TV in the family room. Each of three boys has a TV in their room for video games. Every kid's bedroom, the home office and family room is wired with a 24 port 10/100 switch with gibabit fiber backhaul to the server rack, so network bandwidth "should" be ok. The only coax we have in the house goes straight into the family room.

One son just loves live sports, sometimes causing contention for the Tivo in the family room. We have looked at having our house drilled and coax pulled into his room, plus cable box, but I am not too keen on that idea. We saw the Mini and figured this might be the perfect solution, not just for him, but for all of the kids.

We all enjoy Netflix and Comcast on-demand. We enjoy watching shows on the server, served up via Streambaby and PyTivo. We enjoy watching family videos the same way and also perusing pictures from the server. We also enjoy some audio stored on the server. If we get a Mini for my son's room, what issues are likely to arise? I can already see that the other two boys might also want a Mini.

How much bandwidth do they consume? Is the thin-client Tivo experience similar to sitting "on the console" of the XL4? It seems that direct use of Streambaby will be gone, as well as Netflix. Maybe Xfinity will work; I am not too sure. I can't decide from the posts if multiple Minis will or won't work on a single XL4, or if each mini will grab a dedicated tuner.

If we do install a mini in my son's room, what about the experience might be disappointing?

Many thanks,
Marty

Randy Jackson officially leaving American Idol after this season

Thu, 05/09/2013 - 18:08
I know it was mentioned in the AI thread for this week, but if anyone is like me, they might not be following the weekly threads.

Quote: "Yo! Yo! Yo! To put all of the speculation to the rest, after 12 years of judging on American Idol I have decided it is time to leave after this season," he says. "I am very proud of how we forever changed television and the music industry." http://www.eonline.com/news/416905/r...-american-idol

If rumors are true, the entire rest of the judging team, as well as the producers of American Idol, will also be leaving, and major changes to the show are planned for next season.

Second Tivo Premiere

Thu, 05/09/2013 - 18:05
I have two questions:
1. Is there a search function on this Forum?
2. If I buy a second Tivo for another room do I need to pay an extra monthly charge? My intent is simply to view the Tivo I now have in another room. If there is another way to do this, what is it?

Motive on ABC uses original Canadian air dates

Motive begins on May 20th and is now in the guide, but it's using the original Canadian OAD's so you'll need to set your SP or ARWL to record repeats

KMTTG fails to trasfer in batch mode (command line)

Thu, 05/09/2013 - 16:04
I have an issue with KMTTG. Every time I attempt to transfer shows off of my TiVo, it will stop at "RUNNING 'REMOTE NP List' JOB FOR TiVo: DVR-7775" and will eventually tell me "ERROR: RemoteInit - (IP=192.168.1.2, port=1413): Read timed out" The weird thing is that if I run this program in GUI mode, it has no problems downloading shows. I'm wanting to get this setup because this is on a headless server, in which I'd rather not use a GUI through VNC and I'd want to schedule this program to execute. I've tried Google, but it doesn't seem like anyone else has this problem.

Arrow - S01E23 - "Darkness On the Edge Of Town"

Well, Ollie, that's certainly a fine mess you've gotten yourself into.

Malcolm Merlyn's been one step ahead of you all this time and he whupped you good to boot.
(And have you thought about investing in a real mask?)

As expected, the device created by Dr. Brion Markov creates earthquakes.

And I'm willing to bet that Spoiler: Malcolm will run it through the old subway tunnels to set it off.

I did like Felicity at Merlyn Global though and Diggle's method of rescuing her.
(Although him having a job there was a tad convenient now, wasn't it?)
(And a "teraflop of data"?)

And back on the island, can Ollie prevent Fyers from downing that Ferris Air jet?
(And if Yao Fei is dead, who continues to teach Ollie how to be a baddass? Slade?)

Tommy, Tommy, Tommy. You can just see the darkness rising in him.

All in all, setting up nicely for the season finale.

Real World: Portland - Full Season

Thu, 05/09/2013 - 12:47
Nia, who apparently prefers to argue when she is wearing just a bra and panties, has added some pretty amusing drama to this season. As in all recent seasons, it's hard to like any of these people, but I felt a little bit bad for Jordan when Nia clearly provoked him over and over again until she got a reaction out of him. Her one-sided recollection of the night was too much. I would think what she did, pushing him hard in the face, would have been enough to get her kicked off the show, but I'm glad that didn't happen.

Program Data Will Run Out

Thu, 05/09/2013 - 12:10
I reviewed all the posts on this subject and they're pretty old.
Is anyone still dealing with this issue?
When I spoke to support today, they said noone else is having this problem.
=============
Series 3 - connects sucessfully every day - cox cable w/TA
Got the message "program data will run out......"
I didn't believe it because I could see data way past that date.
After that date, the data was only there when looking at the directory on live tv. Search function wouldn't show anything.
Repeated the complete guided setup and message went away for a few weeks then came back.
Went in and reset the zip code (only takes a few hours to download instead of all day with new guided setup) and message went away for a few days. Now it's back again.
TIVO says to connect to the service twice in a row then restart so I'll give that a try.
The tech says noone else is calling with this problem so if others are maybe we should start calling and calling.
