Live TV button not switching tuners

Fri, 01/18/2013 - 19:43
I've just noticed the last few days that my live TV button on my remote no longer switches tuners. This is on my TiVo premiere 4 tuner. The only difference is I recently started using a TiVo slide remote. I can't remember if it started before or after the switch. I pulled out my old remote and get the same results. I also unplugged my bt dongle and still had the same results. The only thing I haven't done yet is reboot the TiVo.

Has anyone else run into this?

Wow I just found all my newbie posts from 2002 when I got my first TiVo....I was such an excited newbie!:). I'm getting a kick out of reading all my questions and discoveries.

The funniest part is how excited I was about the 500 gig modded machine I got on eBay - my 2002 self could never imagine the 2tb wonder that is about to arrive.

Here's hoping I have the same enthusiasm for the TiVo world in 2013 that I had in 2012:)

Hard drive failing?

Fri, 01/18/2013 - 14:51
Series 3 with upgraded drive. Two or three times during a show the pic will pixel and the sound will go for a second or two. Happens on just about every program recorded. Acts like a record with a bad place in it. Does this mean the drive is going.

Strange behavior in My Shows

Fri, 01/18/2013 - 11:02
On my TiVo Premiere DVR, I sometimes get a "phantom" show listing in a folder of shows. This "phantom" show shows up as a blank line which cannot be selected or deleted in a folder.

Once a show gets a phantom listing, it will always be there and really confuses the TiVo app on my iPhone.

Is there any way to clear this out?

Is it slow for everyone?

The forum's been VERY slow this morning! I click a link, it hangs for several minutes before finally showing the page. The status bar says "Waiting for idgtechnetwork.com".

Sloooow Web site

Fri, 01/18/2013 - 09:25
I'm having a real problem accessing any TCF page with any speed at all. This is NOT happening with any other Web site I access. When I try to go to a TCF page, the browser says its waiting on idgtechnetwork.com and it waits and waits and waits to connect....sometimes taking a minute or more to get to the TCF page. I'm using the latest release of Firefox. It doesn't seem to be as bad with Safari. I'm on a Mac using OS 10.7.5. Any thoughts? This just started this morning...

i watched this relatively closely and didnt see the reason why he changed his plans and instead shot himself. obviously having the gun handy was either a backup plan or THE plan from the start

was daddy getting on AF1 supposed to mean he was the mastermind?

i want one of those briefcases that scramble my signal !

Anyone seen this strange behavior before?

Fri, 01/18/2013 - 01:45
I set up three transfers to my main TivoHD. The first from the bedroom TivoHD and then two from the PC.
When I see the transfers are done, I look in the NPL and notice one of the shows (from the PC) isn't there. So I initiate another transfer. Back in the NPL the transfer didn't show up (or so I thought).
Come to find out it was transferring the show from the other Tivo instead of the PC. I had three copies of the same show from the other Tivo.
I had to unplug the bedroom Tivo to get the main Tivo to transfer from the PC.

Weird.

WTF... Missed recording because "account closed"

Fri, 01/18/2013 - 00:06
So last night I went to go watch The Daily Show and I noticed it was missing. I go over to the the History and it says the show was not recorded because my account was closed and I needed to call TiVo to reactivate. This TiVo has lifetime service and the show immediately after it, The Colbert Report, recorded just fine. Has anyone else ever seen this error? Luckily this show repeats several times, so it was no big deal, but had that been an important network show I'd have been mad.

Comcast Chicago - Tivo starting to cut off early

Thu, 01/17/2013 - 22:37
The past week every channel has started to cut off the end of shows, about 30 seconds too early. It's not just one channel, it's all. This is Comcast in Chicago. Tivo is set to the correct time - I forced a connection just to make sure, before and after I checked. It matched the time of my iPhone perfectly.

Anyone else noticing this? I can't pad all recordings with an extra minute because some would overlap.

:mad:

King of the nerds

Grey's Anatomy: "The End is the Beginning is the End" (OAD: 1/17/13) SPOILERS!

Thu, 01/17/2013 - 21:47
This thread is inspired by tonight's (1/17/13) episode of Grey's Anatomy, so I'm going to pose some questions and I'm not going to conceal them in spoiler tags.

IF YOU DON'T WANT GREY'S ANATOMY SPOILERS, DO NOT READ!

OK, here goes:

Five doctors sue the hospital and win a $75 million settlement. The insurance company finds a loophole and doesn't have to cover the loss. The hospital has to pay but doesn't have the money. So it decides to declare bankruptcy and close its doors.

Is this something that happens in the real world?

Is this something covered by federal law or state law?

Which Chapter covers a nonprofit hospital's bankruptcy?

Where does the winner of the lawsuit stand among the creditors? At the top? At the bottom? Can the bankruptcy court reduce the winning plaintiff's settlement to pennies on the dollar?

"Season Pass and Other Options" GONE?

Odd HR10-250 Weather Related Reboot

Thu, 01/17/2013 - 19:13
I have a brand new HR10-250 box and it's snowing pretty bad here and I have had to go out a few times to deice the dish to get service back but my box does a weird thing and not sure I can turn this feature off? (if it is a feature) Once I deice the dish, our service is perfect til the ice builds backup on the dish and we lose signal and I get that but what I don't get is why my box reboots itself when I lose signal. As soon as the signal drops to nothing, box will reboot and I get the message..Welcome Powering Up. I have a brand new HDD in the box and I doubt that's the issue as it only happens when I lose complete signal?

Charter self install cable cards

Thu, 01/17/2013 - 17:13
I just got off the phone with Charter and they told me that they no longer do professional installation of cable cards, and that I can pick them up at the office when I return their dvr box.

Is there anything I should be aware of regarding steps I need to take regarding installation for my premiere? I'm anticipating the worst in regards to this set up - is it more complicated than popping in the card and running through the on screen setup?

If there is any where online that I can find instructions for dummies, that would probably be the most helpful. I didn't find Charter's website to be particularly useful in this regard.

SyFy's Continuum has Air Date issue

Thu, 01/17/2013 - 17:08
FYI - The new to SyFy series Continuum shows Original Air Dates of middle of last year (probably when they aired in Canada or where ever the show came from). Thus, a Season Pass set as 'NEW' will not catch the new episodes. Set it as New & Repeats if you want to catch the show....
