Find shows not finding some shows

Wed, 12/05/2012 - 12:09
When we look for shows by name some shows are not listed (Parenthood & Survivor for example). If we look at old copies and look at up coming episodes they are there. I had a daughter try on her TIVO and all was good. Rebooted TIVO but that didn't help. Any ideas?

PyTivo Vidmgr and Streambaby icons hosed

Wed, 12/05/2012 - 11:22
with the new update. Instead of the following displaying on my Tivo:
  • PyTivo Video Manager
    stream, baby stream!

It now looks something like
  • pyTivo/2/video/3/Manager
    stream/2/baby/3/stream

I am doing this from memory so it may not be exactly like that, but close.

Is there a fix for that?

NCIS - 11-27-12 - Gone

Wed, 12/05/2012 - 11:18
I sort of surprised that there wasn't a thread on this already, so since I finally was able to watch this last night I thought I would start one.

The subject was a little difficult, but I what set this episode apart for me was seeing Alex Kingston. Her character wasn't too much different that her part in Doctor Who; and there seems to be a similar relationship with Gibbs as River does (without the marriage) to The Doctor. I hope I seen he character again.

Series 3, HD or Premiere; considerations with OTA & SDV?

Wed, 12/05/2012 - 08:59
Sorry for another one vs the other thread, but I have specific concerns that need answers. After doing more research I have come across various issues between these three models.

Concerns/issues:
1. OTA performance; the consensus seems to be the Premiere is worse than either Series 3,
2. SDV; Is the Premiere any better than either Series 3 with TWC systems with their TA?
3. Overall problems with basic functions; recording, playback and Guide usage for example. I don't envision doing any Internet video watching. I may want to do transfers to a PC.
4. Other than the display which many seem to like, would the HD be a better choice over the original 'three' since it is more 'green' and has some newer components?

The Series three are attractive for the possible better OTA performance and price. The Premiere is attractive for being considerable newer with the assumption SDV with the problematic Tuning Adapter would work better.
Coming from a 7 year old designed DVR, I'm concerned about getting a 5 0r 6 year old design vs one that is only two years. ;)

Repeated manual recordings disappearing from season pass list

Wed, 12/05/2012 - 08:38
I record 11 hours of CNBC in high DEF every day using a repeated manual recording. I have been doing this for the last four or five years.

Recently I got updated to version 20.2.2-01-2-746. Since then I have had my manual recording season pass entry disappear three times. The first time I assumed I'd done something wrong, so I re-created the entry. That one lasted about two days. Then I re-created it for the third time and it lasted for about a week.

I'm wondering if anybody else is seeing the same problem?

Sons of Anarchy - "J'ai Obtenu Cette" 12/4/12

Wed, 12/05/2012 - 07:32
"I Got This".

Pope dead, Clay and Tara in jail. Bobby resigns as VP. Disappointing IMO. We know how long people stay in jail on this show.

Glad Tig is still around and hopefully Smits will be back.

Hard disk supply

Wed, 12/05/2012 - 03:34
I happened to have a Western Digital Red (WD10EFRX) on my desk, so before I used it for its purchased purpose I thought I'd try it in TiVo. Unfortunately it's a 'no boot', so it looks like we can add WD Reds to WD Greens as discs which won't work in TiVo. (And yes I was using an 'approved' adapter.)

Did anyone ever find out exactly why some discs work and some don't? The reports seem to suggest that it's discs which use 4kB sectors (rather than 512B) which the TiVo IDE controller can't cope with. Although the WD firmware translates the 4K sector to 512 it appears there is still something the TiVo controller doesn't like.

If this really is the cause of the no boot then there is a potential long-term problem here. Since Jan 2011 all new product HDs (well big capacity ones anyway) are supposed to be made with 4K sectors (so-called "Advanced Format"). If 4K sectors aren't going to work in TiVo then we are going to reach the point where we can no longer get new discs for our S1 TiVos.

It would be ironic if our S1 TiVos were finally nailed by the lack of HD supply! :(

Thoughts anyone? Is the 4K sector really the reason why some discs work and some don't?

Anyone watch "Elementary" on CBS?

Wed, 12/05/2012 - 01:33
I have been watching and enjoying the show but have not seen any mention here.

It is your basic crime consultant that "sees" things that the cops don't and then is able to make leaps of logic and deduction. The character is put together fairly well. He is an ex drug addict that has a companion with him to help keep him straight - even though he swears he is off the stuff and it was just an experiment. His companion is a female named Watson. It is very Monk-like in that he has his own quirks and such.

And for all that, it is enjoyable and I wondered if anyone else was watching it.

MoCA for Premier and Premier 4

Wed, 12/05/2012 - 00:29
Since my powerline adapters are kind of a washout I am looking at MoCA for my Premier and Premier 4. As I understand it, I need two MoCA adapters -- one for the cable modem/router and one for the Premier. The Premier 4 doesn't need an adapter, though, correct? By the way, neither box is in the same room as the router. Does that make any kind of difference? Thanks.

not recording season pass episodes

Wed, 12/05/2012 - 00:19
It seems that every time the tivo reboots it changes the recording option for that days episode from a season pass. I check the recording history and it shows the episode and says 'not recorded as it was not in the guide' but when I check the epg it is there. This happens on a regular basis as the machine seems to reboot at least once a week sometimes more. I have to now check each day that the days episode is still showing to record. I only have one season pass that is a daily record, so really have no idea if it would do it to all or not.

The only way to make sure it records (if I check it before the time is due) is to do a manual setup. Even though the show is showing in the guide it wont set it up automatically

Also I thought the rebooting was supposed to happen in the middle of the night to minimise any inconvenience. Mine reboots during the day and during peak evening viewing time.

Any help would be appreciated, this is very frustrating

iTunes 11 doesn't work with Mac TiVo Desktop

Tue, 12/04/2012 - 22:53
Hello, newbie here but longtime TiVo user (10 years this Xmas!).

So, I installed iTunes 11 and it has busted TiVo Desktop's ability to access my music and photos on my iMac, running 1.95a (NEW - oh yeah, 2009 new).

After a lengthy web chat with a TiVo tech support rep (who seemed fairly knowledgeable) and at his request, I turned off the firewall and checked again - still I cannot access my music and photos through my iMac.

Any ideas?

I can remove iTunes 11 and go back to iTunes 10.6.something but would prefer not too, Apple needed an extreme iTunes makeover and iTunes 11 is it.

This has worked since I bought this iMac in July 2009. Must mention that I'm running 10.7.5 (Snow Leopard, have not yet made the Lion leap).

Sons of Anarchy -- no sound?

Tue, 12/04/2012 - 21:06
Am I the only one who doesn't have sound on Sons of Anarchy tonight?

Usually with the extra-long episodes I save them for the next day so I can go to bed early. Tonight, I wanted to watch the finalé. Good thing...it would have sucked to try tomorrow and have to wait for another showing. Now I can try to get one overnight.

Wireless cable tv extenders and tivo

Tue, 12/04/2012 - 20:44
Do the wireless cable extenders work with the Tivos? How about the old Series 2 Tivos?

I'm just looking for options for my garage which is detached and I don't want to run a coaxial cable across my driveway and patio to get tv in the garage. I have a series 2 tivo but i can't get it to connect to my network to transfer shows from my other tivos.

Just thinking maybe wireless cable extender might solve the problem.

Cox Orange County HD Channel Screw Job

Tue, 12/04/2012 - 19:52
Cox in Orange County California has implemented a complete screwing of long-time digital HD subscribers using Tivos!:mad:

A number of the channels you might have received for years in premium HD tiers have been removed for good. Many HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, Starz subchannels have been blocked. You will only get a few of the premium channels from each. A number of miscellaneous channels such as the cooking channel HD have also been block.

So now you get to enjoy viewer channels on your Tivos for the same or even higher prices:eek:

Why you ask? It so Cox can try and squeeze even more money out of their shrinking pool of customers. You now have to sign up for their TRIO service for 30 to 50 bucks a month and use their crappy DVR to get all the HD channels you were getting before.

Over the last few months I've notice HD channels disappearing on my Tivos and my regular Cox digital STBs.

I just installed a new Tvio XL4 over the weekend and had to roll a tech out to check out the line. I showed him the missing HD channels and he didn't say a word about TRIO. He just ran around checking signal strength and noise levels. After pressing him he finally called his supervisor and was told to tell me those channels are not available to non TRIO subscribers. Gee Cox thanks for informing me that my channels were being decreased but my month fees were not.

I love the new XL4. PQ is much better then my old HD unit. Too bad Cox has gone down the toilet. I think a 26 year customer that spends over $200 a month with them should be treated more open and honestly. Oh well I guess I need to start looking for alternatives.
