The Newsroom - Ep. 16 OAD 2013/08/18 "One Step Too Many" ***spoilers***

Mon, 08/19/2013 - 14:56
So it runs out that Sorkin used exactly the same edited tape premise as what happened in real life at CNN?

So Jerry didn't think that General whatsisname would watch and complain?

I know. The general is batty enough to think that Charlie and Mac were Jehovah's Witnesses but he's spot on with the truth about the sarin.

<<----- More work for Stephen Root

Jeeze. When is HBO gonna drop the Flash-only site?

Am I too fast for my XL4?

Mon, 08/19/2013 - 14:02
I was watching a recorded show and hit the 8 second back button. I needed a little more and did it a few more times. I then went forward a little and it was too far so I hit back again. My XL4 then froze and did a reboot. This has not happened before and the recorded show was fine after the reboot. Is it possible that I was too quick and the XL4 didn't know just what I wanted?

Help with slide remote code

Mon, 08/19/2013 - 13:40
I have a LG NB2520A Sound Bar and would like to control it with my slide remote but when I go into setup for AV I do not see LG any other way I can get my slide remote to work with my new sound bar? TV power volume mute and input work great but no AV control.

Just a heads up that most comedies from FX are moving to FXX in September. Check your series recording options

I just cut the cord

Mon, 08/19/2013 - 12:05
I have had Directv since the 90's, and I called today to shut it off.

With a 3 year old and 8 year old that watch Netflix and Hulu it just doesn't seem worth it.

We have 3 Apple TV's that we use for Netflix and Hulu. I have had Tivos in the past but they all died and were replaced with Directv DVR's.

If I wanted to add a DVR I guess I have to go with Premier for over the air?

How is the interface for Netflix and Hulu on the Tivo?

Anything else to consider?

Fox Sports One (and Two)

Mon, 08/19/2013 - 11:15
I noticed this started up this weekend and Fox (the OTA network) has been shilling this for days and even during the SNF they had last night. As of now, there's nothing compelling to watch on it. Eventually they will have some MLB games, so I might watch it then. The NFL show they were pushing just seems like the normal Fox pre-game show with a "B" team crew. I'll pass.

Multi Room streaming failing - 1 way only

Mon, 08/19/2013 - 09:35
I have a premiere xl4 in my living room and a regular premiere xl in my bedroom.

I often use the multi room streaming to stream recordings on the xl4 to the regular xl.

About two weeks ago I was streaming a program. Playback was fine then about 30 minutes into the recording the playback started to stutter severely. Eventually playback failed, I received an error about a loss of connection to the xl4 and the xl4 disappeared from my my shows list.

I had to restart the xl4 for it to reappear in my my shows list on the regular xl.

But since then multi rooming streaming to the regular xl never works.

I can browse the list, start playing. But it immediately starts to stutter then fails.

Over the past two weeks I have tried multiple times to restart every piece of the system.

I restart the router, the xl4 and the regular xl.

I even did a full factory reset on the router.

Now if I stream a recording hosted on the regular xl to the xl4 that plays absolutely fine.

I don't think its an issue of the quality of connection and the available bandwidth of my internal network.

Everything is connected via wired ethernet direct to the same router.

And high bandwidth hd video streaming from other services such as netflix, hulu and amazon work flawlessly on both boxes without any delay.

Also in the living room I have another media streaming box that works absolutely fine.

I have tested downloading a show to my xl from the xl4 and then works but the transfer rate is painfully slow.

Grouper and TiVo Partner to Put TV and Movies Front and Center of the Social Scene

Mon, 08/19/2013 - 08:52
SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/19/13 -- TiVo Inc. (NASDAQ: TIVO), a leader in advanced television services and the creator of digital video recorders (DVRs), and Grouper, a technology-based social club, announced today a partnership that will integrate TV and movie themes into the novel Grouper experience. The partnership, rolling out in late August, will create integrated brand experiences in select markets by offering TV trivia during Grouper gatherings, themed parties and photo challenges.

"We look forward to working together with a brand that shares our passion for bringing people together, and we are excited for how this will improve the experience for our members," said Michael Waxman, Grouper Founder & CEO. "When people meet for the first time, TV and movies are often times the ultimate ice-breaker conversation. This partnership will facilitate our goal of bringing people closer together by injecting pop culture into the mix."

Without a doubt, Grouper and TiVo share a lot in common. They both shattered the traditional rules of their industries: TiVo invented the DVR and in the process reinvented the way we consume television and changed an industry forever; and Grouper improved on traditional ways people meet by organizing meet-ups between two groups of friends, rewriting the cultural rule book and re-defining friendship and love. In addition, both brands are focused on bringing people together, with Grouper's mission to end loneliness by uniting people offline, and TiVo's by providing the ultimate television experience and giving consumers all video content, anywhere, anytime.

"We're ecstatic to partner with an innovative, emerging brand with a young, connected demographic that understands and seeks what TiVo delivers -- a television experience that brings together the best of all television -- streaming apps and cable TV -- anywhere, anytime and on any device," said Doug Bieter, TiVo's VP for Consumer Sales and Marketing. "Grouper's passion for creating a personalized, fun experience for their customers captures the essence of what we do for lovers of TV. We look forward to seamlessly supporting the Grouper experience with TiVo technology in a variety of capacities."

TiVo and Grouper expect to announce additional brand integrations in the coming months, leveraging TiVo's innovative entertainment experience into Grouper's renowned social events. Check out www.tivogrouper.com for further updates.

True Blood 8/18/13 "Radioactive" ** Spoilers **

Mon, 08/19/2013 - 06:32
Well I'm glad that's over.

I can't believe Eric was only in 30 seconds of the finale. This episode could have been 30 minutes long and still seemed boring. The entire second half after they killed Warlow was useless, other than the last 10 seconds to setup the next season premiere.

Disappointing conclusion to what was surprisingly a decent season.

Dexter S08E08 "Are We There Yet?" Spoilers

Sun, 08/18/2013 - 22:57
Okay, I didn't see that coming... Zach getting "Brain Surgeoned." I was hoping they'd carry on with his mentoring for a bit more. That was very entertaining.

Really enjoyed the episode a lot.

Big Brother - 8/18/13

Sun, 08/18/2013 - 22:43
Looks like Helen is in big trouble if she doesn't win POV. Meanwhile, Elissa is absolutely pathetic. Seriously, why did she even come on the show?
I loved the have/have not comp! It's nice to see them finally come up with something unique for a change. It almost felt like I was watching a completely different show. :)

Migrating from a Premiere to an Xl4

Sun, 08/18/2013 - 21:06
I just purchased an XL 4 as I wanted to set it up with the mini and stream.

Question - what is the easiest way to get the premiere shows I have to the new Xl4? Can I copy them over or can I possibly switch the drives out, as the premier I have is a 2 TB drive? I know I can easily move the season passes over.

Thanks for the help and my apologies as I am sure thsi has been posted but google\search was not helpful.

I have a TWC installed coax amp. Can the coax cable that the power feeds into be split and used as a cable tv source?

Sun, 08/18/2013 - 19:58
Didn't you think - like we were supposed ta - that The Swede was (is?) going to ax murder the family?

Where did he get the fancy clothes? Stole them from another victim?

Anybody else notice that Mrs. Toole's chin tattoo can spell MILF?


Transferring from RCN

Sun, 08/18/2013 - 19:52
I'm currently using an RCN Tivo Premiere, dual tuner. I also have the WD Tivo Extender connected.

I may be moving soon, and will lose RCN. Question is this: is it possible to transfer shows off the RCN Tivo to a newly purchased Tivo Premiere?

Using a Tivo Wireless N adaptor on a PC

Sun, 08/18/2013 - 19:11
I have an extra Tivo wireless n adaptor - and a PC with no wifi. Can I use the Tivo adaptor on my Windows Vista PC?

The wifi network is password protected. Where do I select the SSID and password when the adaptor only connects to the PC through its ethernet port?
