Stuck on: Pls Wait... Acquiring Channel Info

Sun, 05/19/2013 - 06:34
Double checked similar threads. My problem wasn't among them.

Background:
Came home a couple days ago and discovered we had a power outage while I was out. Surge protectors and UPS devices were reset and all was well aside from my Tivo Prem. XL. It had a frozen start up screen. The drive had started to hiccup from time to time three months back and I had ordered a replacement drive from Weaknees as a precaution. So after insuring it wasn't coming back, I pulled and replaced the old hard drive.

Install and setup went very smoothly. Cable service set, network connects fine, then I get the message shown in the title and I'm at 50%.

Can someone explain this note from the weaKnees instructions to me and share if this might be the issue?

"Note: After installation of your new drive certain channels are not available, you will want to call your cable company and verify that the HOST ID and DATA ID that they have matches the TiVo's CableCard setting screen."


Thank you.

Premiere-"Problem tuning antenna channel..."

Sat, 05/18/2013 - 23:10
That's not the exact wording.I'm going to have write it down! lol

This is just started today,although I lost this channel briefly yesr=terday,but,it came back.

Some days agao,our local Channel 12 went digital and when I punched it in on the Tivo Premiere,it was there,so I did a rescan.All was fine.

Today,I lost it.All the other channels are fine,but,they're digital and UHF.

One thing I should note: No Channel ID,or program info.The Tivo lists it as "UNKNOWN."

Diagnostics says : "program lock= NO"

I've searched,read and tried to 2 usual fixes: restart and rescan.

Note:

1)On my Sony Bravia LCD TV it's fine.
2)Tivo says : 82 % signal lock.
3)An old Samsung SIR T151 digital converter box I have,locks it a bit slow,but,it works fine.

Note: I haven't activated the Tivo Service yet.

btw: Is the Tivo Channel list different than the Zap2it data for my postal code(K0L1Y0)?Their data is out to lunch.Only locals here are: 6 CJOH[CTV],11(soon 11.1)CKWS [CBC],12.1 CHEX[CBC],27.1,(30.1 -only 5kw xmttr),35.1[CTV]

Mini Audio problems with sound bar

Sat, 05/18/2013 - 22:04
I'm having trouble with audio from my mini when trying to play audio through sonos playbar (soundbar). The mini is hooked directly to the tv with hdmi cables (as are my Roku and Apple TV). Audio goes out of the tv with a digital audio out cable directly to sonos playbar.

Roku and Apple TV work fine, but no audio from mini. I do get audio from mini if I disable sound bar and play audio through tv speakers.

Any suggestions on how to fix would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Dave

Orphan Black 5/18/13 "Entangled Bank"

Well, I've come to the conclusion that this is a somewhat goofier and dumber show than I had hoped. But that's OK...it's a GOOD goofy and dumb.

They do love their classical farce, and they do it so well. And they do love not even going to Wikipedia to research their science (identical twins don't share fingerprints; I thought everybody knew that!). But it's still a lot of fun. I like that things actually move along, that people actually talk to each other. And of course Maslany continues to astonish. It's just too bad there are only two episodes left this season.

TIVO Desktop doesn't see my DVRs

Sat, 05/18/2013 - 21:24
I have been using Tivo Desktop for awhile but about 6 months ago it stopped seeing my DVRs. I don't think I did anything with any of my settings. Today I spent most of the day on the telephone with Tivo and cleaned and reinstalled the software, changed from Bonjour to Beacon and back again. I still don't see anything. Any suggestions? I am not terribly sophisticated with computers or routers.
Thanks.

Guided Setup stuck in "pending restart" loop

Sat, 05/18/2013 - 19:06
Setting up a brand new XL4. Each time I go through Guided Setup, it successfully connects and downloads, then finishes "loading info" and says "pending restart" to install an update. I restart, during which it does say "installing an update" with no indication that it failed. But when I restart Guided Setup, it gets to the same spot and is "pending restart" again. I've gone through it probably 10 times!

I've tried it with an without an M-card inserted.

Thanks for any ideas!

SD "My Shows" menu

Sat, 05/18/2013 - 14:23
Since I am getting ready to do a lot of work in the basement so I decided to treat myself to a second Mini. So I went over to BB in St. Louis to pick one up. Although it barely rained there and it didn’t appear to rain a home, I was greeted with my network in shambles (lightning strike, power surge ??). I ended up losing a 24 port Gb switch and an 8 port Gb managed switch. It took a long time (and a lot of reboots) to get my existing Premiere, XL4 and Mini to see each other again. The major causality here was that when you bring up the other machines “My Shows” it will only show them in SD, not HD. I’ve tried every setting I could think of but no go. I've also forced them to connect to Tivo several times. The Mini seems unaffected.

Any thoughts

Fix The Website

tivo.com/activate doesn't work for new subscribers and hasn't for over a week now.

I got a Tivo last week and since then.the above link hasn't worked -and that was confirmed by a forum member.

I would suggest :

-Be able to activate and deactivate online!

TiVo Premiere not recording audio

Sat, 05/18/2013 - 11:30
I'm going to ask this question here since calling Tivo customer service goes nowhere.

I have a TiVo Premiere and for the past few months I have encountered a unique (?) problem. Occasionally (once-a-month or so) I go play a show that I have recorded and there is no sound/audio. The show is there, fully recorded but there is no sound. Playing the show again, there is still no sound. A show that I recorded at the same time will have sound. This problem is not specific to any time, show, network, etc. It is quite random.

At first I just assumed that there was a problem from the broadcasting station but quickly found out that is not it because my Tivo Series 2 records some of the same shows and the audio is fine. And on Wednesday I encountered the problem "live". My girlfriend started to watch "Law & Order: SVU" and there was no sound. I stopped the recording and there was still no sound. I hit "swap" on the remote to change the tuner and then returned with another "swap" and the sound was working fine.

I assume this is some random internal issue with Tivo. Does this happen to anyone else? Can this be fixed?

Game of Thrones - Are fans enjoying this season? (no spoilers)

Sat, 05/18/2013 - 06:28
Are GOT fans enjoying this season? I'm asking because I am SO far behind on the episodes (have watched through "Walk of Punishment" which had a big "Jamie" ending). I haven't read the threads past that episode because I avoid spoilers.

So far, I've been a bit "meh" on the episodes, because half the time they're talking about people whose names I don't recognize, and partway into the ep I start feeling a bit lost. By the end of each episode (so far), I've been pulled back in, but it's been a chore to get there.

Is it worth trying to catch up on the 4 unseen (tomorrow will make it 5) episodes?

Kmttg - broken?

Sat, 05/18/2013 - 01:14
I have, for the past 6 months, been trying to get kmttg to work as a service on my computer. Now, I have built another computer, and I get the exact same error messages and problems on the new machine (ruling out all hardware causes for my problems). Finally, after finding a tip on an obscure blog, I've messed with the Javaw.exe file, and am making some progress, but now all I can get is a "Status=start_pending".
It never starts.

I've run everything as an administrator, I've added shows to the transfers list (I know you need at least one), I've run the files from their folder locations rather than from the GUI.... and yet it doesn't work.

All I want to do is have auto transfers work, and be able to see my PC from my Tivo menu to pull shows when needed.

The amount of hoops I've been having to jump through has made me wonder whether or not kmttg is actually being used by anyone, or if it's abandon-ware and I'm wasting my time. Because to me, it seems like it's totally and completely broken - more than any software I've ever encountered.
So - it is even possible to get it to work? It seems no....

I'm using Windows 8.

Controlling 2 devices on my slide remote?

Fri, 05/17/2013 - 23:27
Good afternoon everyone.

I'm at a loss here. I recently bought a Vizio soundbar to hold me over for 6 months to a year until I get a new place and upgrade to a full stereo system. I've had some luck and was able to program my slide so when I hit power, both devices come on, and when I use the volume buttons, it only adjusts my soundbar. Great right?

The problem I've been running into is that if my TV or soundbar don't come on, I have to then get up or grab the other remote to turn the device on/off. 1st world problem I know.

But I was reading and the Tivo website says I should be able to control multiple devices, or program them by pressing the number 1 or 2 button function on my remote. However, I can't figure out for the life of me how this works It doesn't seem to work, or it doesn't even explain how to control multiple devices. Any help or suggestions?

See bottom section for learning up to 3 devices.

channel programming doesn't match:(

Fri, 05/17/2013 - 22:55
Hi Everybody.

I live in Coral Springs, FL, and we have the worst cable company in the world. last year, we bought two Tivo Premieres for $99 each and the life-time buyout fee of $399 per machine. I love the Tivo interface, and the ability to share recordinsg across the network.

Recently, our cable company ditched its analog channels permanently. all channels are digital now. We don't have a cable card nor use the cable provider's decoder box, we just buy the basic cable package plus extended channels, for a total of about 99 channels( the lower 99).

we dont get any pay channels, but are fine with that.

one of the major problems with the changeover, was that the Tivo program guide doesn't match any of the new channels, even after running all updates and re-scanning all the channels. its been two months now, and still no correction. The channels are the "same" in the sense that lets say that channel 19 is the CW network, but channel 19 doesn't have any content on it, Channel 19-1 and 19-2 have the content( one is SD and the other is HD ). This renders the program guide useless, because it will record the blank channel, and not the -1 or -2 subchannel that has has the actual content.

Does anybody have a possible solution for this conundrum?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Returning 2012-2013 Shows, Cancelled Shows, 2013-2014 Previews

Fri, 05/17/2013 - 19:53
The other night, while playing around with our new Premiere 4, I found a screen which showed me three options:
  • Cancelled 2012-2013 Shows
  • Returning Shows
  • 2013-2014 Previews
I thought it was a pretty great feature and I got to watch the "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D" preview which was fun.

I have two questions:

1) When I was done watching the S.H.I.E.L.D video, I wanted to get back to the list of 2013-2014 Previews, but I couldn't figure out how to get back. It looked like I was now in the YouTube app. How should I have returned to the list of Previews?

2) Since I didn't know how to get back one level in the menus, I pushed the TiVo button and I haven't been able to find my way back to this listing of shows. :o Can anyone tell me how to return to this feature so I can watch more previews?

Thank you very much for any help!
