Person of Interest OAD 10/30/13

Thu, 10/31/2013 - 07:23
Not a lot of talk about this show which has really become a new favorite for me... not bad considering I dropped my SP on it twice in the past. The last two episodes were particularly good... more Shaw/Root team-ups please!!!

VideoReDo Problem

Thu, 10/31/2013 - 06:49
Have not seen this reported of late. I used the TiVo Desktop software to transfer titles to my PC, and I edit out the commercials using VideoReDo.

This has worked flawlessly for a month. Now, when I try to open a transferred .TiVo file, VideoReDo reports that it cannot open it. I have not changed or updated either the VideoReDo program or the TiVo desktop.

I upgraded to windows 8.1, but it has been working fine after that update.

I am perplexed and have also posted this problem on the VideoReDo user forums.

Has anyone come across the problem, or, if you have, did you find a solution?

Survivor - Blood vs Water : OAD 10-30-2013

Thu, 10/31/2013 - 06:40
Wow, how insecure is Kat? For a minute I almost wanted her to not lose the challenge, but I got over that.

Not surprised at all that Laura B managed to talk herself out of the game. Those girls seemed to be dying for any reason to not vote Vytas off and despite Laura B saying she felt at home with that tribe, she never really fit in. Katy seems to be doing an excellent job of blending into the background and keeping her own mouth shut.

From the previews for next week.
Spoiler: Merge time, no big surprise. The Redemption challenge looks to be to cling to a pole as long as possible. That should favor Laura M to return to the game. I'll bet they continue Redemption Island and bring someone else back at the end.

Fun stuff.

American Horror Story: Coven - S03E04 - OAD 10/30/13 - "Fearful Pranks Ensue"

Thu, 10/31/2013 - 05:45
This is a strong season. I am really enjoying it.

I liked the callback to Tate in the first season (I'm assuming the kid in the skeleton costume was a wink to the viewers).

That mistress has an excellent track record of getting shot in the head during trysts. (First season spoiler): Spoiler: That's the actress that played the young version of the maid.

I've been waiting and wondering what character Dennis O'Hare would play this season. I finally realized that he's been the mute butler. It took seeing him clean-shaven with a pompadour, in the flashback, to recognize him.

So I guess Queenie didn't voodoo-project her attack onto Kathy Bates, after all.

Tivo Suggestions aren't counted in disk usage?

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 23:38
I've had Tivo Suggestions turned on now for about a week and I'm cueing up a lot of HD movies. However, the disk used percentage doesn't seem to reflect the Tivo Suggested recordings. Has anyone else noticed this? I'm not sure what effect this would have as the disk is gradually filled to capacity... I assume that the older recordings would start to be deleted. In my case, it will take awhile before this is an issue, as I have a 1.5 TB drive installed.

Revolution S02E06 - A Monster in the Backyard

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 23:26
Of course Monroe is not really dead. Rachel switched the drug for the lethal injection. She'll finish digging him up to start next episode.

Who is this new creepy guy that just rode into town? Was Aaron just doodling on his comic book and drew the same symbol he later saw on the wagon? it looked a lot like the Patriot's seal / symbol.

And why is nobody interested in turning the power back on?

Possible answer(s) - it would give too much power to the Patriots. They need to defeat the Patriots before restoring electricity.

Also, it's not clear to me why they left the tower. What happened after Randall shot himself and the nukes landed far away in Philly and Atlanta?

2 Majors Typos in Ad for Roamio

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 22:08
Not sure how to bring to Tivo's attention directly but noticed 2 typos in one of the ads for Tivo on my homescreen. It's for the "Get out of home steaming" feature. It reads "You can now access our new out-of-home streaking feature when you upgrade to a Romaio Plus or Pro DVR"

Not sure how to attach photo to posting but can email it if someone needs to see it from Tivo

How to disable MoCA

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 21:05
How do I disable the MoCA adapter on the Pro?

I have FiOS and a MoCA router.

I have two basics and two pro's on my network.
Since the green switch bug has been fixed, I plugged my ethernet cables back into the pro's.
I still had problems, otehr people reported no problems, so I suspected my switches, so today I went and bough 4 new switches.

After replacing all 4 switches, and plugging ethernet back into both pro's, my network "died".

I've been pulling my hair out to try and figure out what is going on.
I eventually suspected a loop, and I enable loop detection on my main HP Pro Curve switch, and yes, ports get disabled on loop detection.

I think that both tivo's are bridging ethernet and MoCA, and having three bridges on the network is causing loops.

How do I disable the MoCA adapters on the Pro, I just want them to use ethernet?


Error V403

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 20:35
I finally received the new software for the premiere and I am getting a error V403 on wireless connected Tivo to a wired Tivo, but I can transfer show off wireless one to a pc in the same room via wireless then the bedroom Tivo which is wired. Does anyone know why?

I have a Premiere 4, is it worth upgrading?

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 20:00
I recently bought a Premiere 4 (3 weeks ago) used for a great price. I have since upgraded the HDD to 2TB. I am toying with the thought of selling it and buying the Roamio Plus. I know that it has an extra 2 tuners and the HTML5 interface is a bit faster, however I am not sure whether or not it is worth selling it and spending the extra money to upgrade. I figured I would ask you kind folks since I'm sure someone was in the same situation. Any input is much appreciated!

MoCA Ethernet Issue

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 19:54
I need some assistance, Maybe this issue is easy and has been answered before but as someone at the end of his rope im waving the white flag and asking for assistance none the less.

I have the basic 4 tuner Roamio and so far I love it..till I decided to set up a MoCA network.

I have had my tivo up and working for about 2 weeks now and its been great, I had it connected over wireless and it worked fine. I then decided to do a MoCA network so that I could set up a mini in the future. I got the 2 adapters set up correctly as all the lights are on and functional.

I got the ethernet cable going from the 2nd adapter to the tivo and after I reset the tivo it now shows up in the settings that it has ethernet connection and even lists the IP and MAC information.

However the box says it has no internet connection and when I test the network it says that the ethernet cable is unplugged. I took the cable out of the tivo and put it into my Macbook and it worked flawlessly got right on line and everything.

Put the ethernet cable back into the tivo and once again on one screen it says connection type ethernet, lists the IP and MAC address then says on another screen that its unplugged.

Am I missing something?

Also there is no MoCA option in the network settings. Im assuming this will remain the case till i get internet connection working?

To sum up..help

My Shows - can't see programs in other device

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 17:59
Just spent 45 minutes on the phone with Tivo support, but no resolve to the problem. I have 3 units (details below) and two are having problems seeing each other's shows.

1. Bedroom is a Premier
2. Mancave is a Premier
3. Family is an HD

1 and 2 see each other, but won't show each other's programs in My Shows.
1 sees 3 and also can see 3's programs. 3 also sees 1 and it's programs
2 sees 3 and also can see 3's programs. 3 also sees 2 and it's program.

I can transfer between 1-3 and 2-3, but not 1-2.

Hopefully I explained. That clearly.

Anyone ever have this problem?

Is Kmttg not supposed to work with Windows 8?

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 17:33
This is odd.

I have both versions of java installed. I unpacked kmttg as I was supposed to. It downloaded all the tools, successfully accepted my MAK and pulled up my playlist.

Yet, whether I try and download via curl or java, I get errors. With java, something in red saying "bulk dump error" and with curl, I get a long red error that is vertical lines with numbers. And this is after it actually allows the download to start, sometimes getting as far as 30 percent before stopping.

Is it a windows 8/kmttg compatibility issue?

Netflix profile support?

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 15:43
Does the Netflix "app" on the Premiere XL 4 (with latest fall update) support "profiles" in Netflix?

Or does it only work with the main account?

I login to Netflix with a sub-account/profile and choose movies to add to instant queue. When I sign in to Netflix on the Tivo, will it see the sub-account/profile queue or only the main account queue?

Toshiba "expander" dying. Can I transfer to another one?

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 13:26
I have used a Toshiba hard drive in place of the Tivo expander for several years. The Toshiba is making lots of noise so it may be on its last legs. Before it croaks can I transfer everything on it to another external hard drive? If so, will the Tivo recognize it?



DVR Expander on Roamio... More than 1 brand?

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 12:42

Has anybody had any success with a "non WD" eSata hard drive connoted to the Roamio with any success?

I am a new user and would appreciate any feedback.

Thank you so much.

All my best,

Sons Of Anarchy "Los Fantasmas" 10/30/2013

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 12:00
I hope Wendy od'd. Not because I dislike her character or subplot but because I want Tara to know that she's ultimately to blame for that death.

Gemma hasn't been barred from that hospital yet?!?!?

There were some good special fx involved in the guy getting run over.

The Latino gang bangers dress really silly.

Slow IN-HOME Transfer Speeds after Update

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 11:51
Ever since the Tivo app update my IN-HOME transfer speeds have been very slow! Did the new Tivo app change the way the downloading goes for the in-home streaming? It seems like I use to be able to transfer a movie in 20-30 minutes. Now it takes double that.

Anyone else notice their transfers IN-HOME slower?

Walking Dead renewed for S5

Not a big surprise, but it's nice that it's official...and new showrunner Scott Gimple will return.

What's wrong with my TiVoHD?

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 08:58
Symptoms: Non-repeatable dropouts of video and audio during playback every few minutes on all recordings. TV blinks grey for a split second and the audio drops out for a second or two. Audio does NOT drop out if fed directly from TiVo to Receiver, but it does drop out if feed through HDMI and TV.

I tried rebooting and I saw the startup screens twice, meaning it rebooted itself during the first boot. Took the HD out (Seagate SV35 1GB) and ran SeaTools for Windows on it, passed all tests including the Long Generic. Booted up fine after that. Didn't have time to test it after that to see if the problem went away.

Checked capacitors on TiVo's power supply, none were bulging.
