Tivo cooling project / Quiet Tivo

Mon, 12/10/2012 - 10:35
I've just had my first noisy fan trouble after a little more than a year, and while the cooling threads here have been helpful, I need a bit more information for a cooling project I'm interested for my Premiere XL.

It was easy enough to remove the fan, blast it with compressed air and lubricate it from the access plug, but I know that one day it will be buzzing loudly again.

Fans in the 50x50x25 size are quite rare, and that thickness is important to generating the right static pressure for the case.

The stock fan is the COFAN F-5025L-12F, and for a fan that is so expensive, it REALLY sucks, and not just in terms of reliability. Here are the stats I found on one site:


5025L12V
Amp:........0.10
W:...........1.20
RPM:........3500
CFM:.......12.26
H2O:.........0.084
dBA:.........22.1

I'm researching other fans that I've seen mentioned in various threads here, but for my cooling upgrade project, there is some other technical data I'd like to have.

When "system information" reports the temperature, exactly where is that measured?

Is it an ambient temperature?

Does it monitor the CPU temperature separately?

It says my case temp right now of 34c is "normal".

Has anyone seen the temperature response curve that the Tivo uses for spinning up the fan when things get warmer?

I have a lot of ideas about how to keep critical components cooler and happy, but don't know what the system monitors (S.M.A.R.T. for the drive?) and which are most failure prone over time as a result of high temperatures.

I'll share my cooling ideas later, but for now I'll just say they don't seem to have been contemplated much on the forum so far.

Got the fall update...bugs still there!

Mon, 12/10/2012 - 08:47
Watching football yesterday. Switched between 2 recording games, switched back without pressing live TV in between and...Tivo forgot the progress again. I'm convinced that this will never be fixed. FAIL!

How Do You Block Deleting From Other Tivos?

Mon, 12/10/2012 - 00:40
I don't want other Tivos on my network to be able to delete my programs while looking at my stuff through the network, and vica versa. When I had a Tivo Series 2 & a Tivo Premiere it wouldn't allow us to delete each others programs. Now that I got a Tivo Elite XL4 hooked to my network it allows me to go into the other Tivo and delete their stuff.

I'm afraid I will delete their stuff by mistake, or they will delete my stuff by mistake. How do I turn this feature off?

Dexter S07E11 "Do You See What I See" 2012-Dec-09

Sun, 12/09/2012 - 23:35
I thought Dexter was extremely lucky that Estrada did not recognize Dexter from his parole hearing. Although (if the hearing was open to the public) Dexter could have claimed he was just checking Estrada out.

I believed Hannah when she told Dexter that she did not poison Deb. Which only leaves one person who could have drugged Deb's water -- Deb. I'm 90% sure that is what happened. I think Deb must have realized that the former junkie's testimony was not worth much, and so she decided to take drastic measures to split up Dexter and Hannah. She could not have anticipated Dexter coming forward with the pen, but I think Deb knew (or hoped?) Dexter would choose her over Hannah and that when Dexter takes a dislike to someone, bad things happen to them.

I wonder if Dexter left any hard evidence at the cargo container. Dexter was NOT wearing gloves when he first opened the door for Estrada. So even if Dexter takes care of Estrada before Estrada talks to the cops, LaGuerta may still be able to place Dexter at the cargo container. But even that is not proof that Dexter is a murderer.

I don't see how either Dexter or Deb can think arresting Hannah was a good idea. Did Deb think Dexter would kill Hannah? Besides the fact that the chain of custody of that pen is broken, why would Dexter believe that Hannah will not tell all she knows about the Bay Harbor Butcher?

The Amazing Race "Take Down the Million" Season Finale 12/9/12

Sun, 12/09/2012 - 21:40
WOW-I cannot BELIEVE the Beekman Boys won! :eek:

I was on Team Chippendales all the way-but if it wasn't them, I wanted it to be the Beekmans. Glad that the Twinnies were Phillimenated in the first hour. :rolleyes:

Jaymes and James were such good sports-coming in second would suck so bad! But at least James-or is it Jaymes-got his mom a new car! ;) Such nice boys :D

Season 21 was a little "meh" for me...but I still love this show. You can't make this stuff up. People are just funny!

How to deactivate & reactivate Netflix?

Sun, 12/09/2012 - 21:12
For last few days my series 4 & S3 TiVos all were not able to connect to Netflix. I keep getting V301 errors. So I finally got sick of it and went to Netflix account and deactivated all devices. For S3 then I was able to re-pair it to Netflix by entering new activation code and now the S3 is working fine with Netflix again. However for the Premiere units there doesn't seem to be any way to deactivate and/or reactivate a unit. If I recall correctly for series 4 units one had to enter Netflix login & password, but I don't see anywhere to reset that information to start over. WTH? I'm try net connect now to see if that does anything but surely there must be a way to disconnect a TiVo from Netflix? System Information shows a Netflix ESN number and I don't see a way to clear that...
Anyone else been able to re-activate a series 4 unit with Netflix?

S3: remote partially working; same problem on "network" remote app and front buttons

Sun, 12/09/2012 - 20:57
Original S3 (with OLED display)
My remote is occasionally only partially working; a system restart fixes it (have to pull the plug, can't navigate menus to restart).

When this happens, it affects the IR remote (peanut) and also the network remote via iPad or iPhone app connecting as a virtual remote, and the buttons on the front of the TiVo.

So I'm wondering if this is some strange state the TiVo software gets into, rather than a remote problem?

What doesn't work: TiVo button, select, record, live TV (sort of works, doesn't switch tuners)
What works: arrows, numbers, channel changing, pause, play, thumbs down/up, rewind 8 secs, skip forward, a few others.

This has happened 3 times in last week now.

I recently upgraded to a new hard disk from WeaKnees, the old disk had died and would not boot.

Anybody ever heard of something like this? Any ideas on how to get TiVo and select remote button presses to work again?

Tivo and Logitech Harmony 700

Sun, 12/09/2012 - 20:51
I have a Tivo HD. I am trying to program my Logitech Harmony 700 to wk with the Tivo. I can get most controls on the 700 but vol up and down is not listed. Any suggestions? Thanks for any help.

Will Stream work over ac wireless bridge?

Sun, 12/09/2012 - 20:22
I have two Netgear's ac routers (one configured as a bridge). This gives me wireless speeds allowing streaming of bluray movies and seems on par with MoCA. I plan to connect the Stream to my primary router but my Tivo is wired to my bridge.
Will this work?

Cable Issues

Sun, 12/09/2012 - 18:42
I have an original Tivo and a Premiere. I've never had a problem with either of them. However, for the next few months I'm house sitting for some friends. They get their cable/internet through a small local company. That company does not have M-Cards and I'm not worried about that because my friends don't have a cable box/digital tiers anyway. However, when I connect the Tivo, like I usually would, it doesn't work. When the Tivo is not connected, you have to turn on the tv, then hit select on the cable remote to turn on the cable. When the Tivo is connected, the screens stays black and says it is searching for a cable signal. The cable company tells me that they are not compatible with Tivo. Is this true? Is there anything else I can try?

Considering Tivo - Existing Mediacom DVR customer... ??'s

Sun, 12/09/2012 - 17:25
Hello all,
I am an existing Mediacom customer who's paying their DVR/digital fees.
I'd like to stop paying mediacom for the DVR and associated fees that go with it.

We will have two primary TV locations... Family room in the basement w/ the biggest TV and where I plan to put a Tivo. However, we will still have a TV in the main floor living room where we'll also watch TV.

Is there a way to utilize the recorded content on the basement TiVo and watch it on the main floor TV?

HD Stuck in GS Mode

Sun, 12/09/2012 - 13:44
My TiVo HD started giving a warning message about low programming several weeks ago. Called support. They said to reboot. This worked for a couple of weeks then the programming counted down to zero in spite of manual updates, rebooting, etc. Now it is stuck in the Guided Setup. Everything works ok until the very last step and I get an S03 message.

Unit is TCD635160 upgraded to 1TB HDD about two years ago when I started having problems with the external dive. I used the 500gb external drive into my computer and it seems to work ok (formatted to NTFS using WinXP) but don't really know if the orig 160gb drive was bad or not.

This recent problem didn't begin until I got a cable card from Time Warner and a Tuning Adapter for HD channels.

I'm using ethernet cable to my router.

Any suggestions?

Only getting picture on 2 of 4 tuners

Sun, 12/09/2012 - 11:03
I've just gotten a new XL4, replacing my old Series 3. It's running with a SDA with Charter Communications.

I was able to get the CableCard authorized and paired yesterday, and I'm now receiving all the channels I should get on two of the four tuners. On the other two tuners, in most cases, whenever I try to tune to a channel I get a message that says:

"This channel is temporarily unavailable. Press SELECT to try tuning to this channel again. Contact your cable provider for more information."

Late yesterday, Tivo Support said I should wait for all the channels to load to all the tuners. It's been about 20 hours, and I suspect the problem is something else. I could live with 2 tuners, but I don't want the Tivo to try to record Season Passes and other programs on unworking tuners and get nothing but black screens and error messages.

Any chance that either (1) my CableCard (M stream) is limited by Charter to only two streams, or (2) my SDA (MTR700) is somehow limited? Any other ideas or suggestions? The Charter reps I've talked to so far don't seem to understand how four tuners could possibly work through one CableCard.

Pandora stops playing

Sun, 12/09/2012 - 10:34
I pay for the unlimited, commercial-free version of Pandora and turned it on through my Premiere last night. It would play for about an hour and then just stop almost like it went to sleep. To restart, I had to hit the select button on the TiVo remote and the music would come back. Any ideas about what might be causing this from the beautiful minds of this forum?

JukeBox no longer plays via HDMI?

Sun, 12/09/2012 - 08:49
Its been a while since we have used JukeBox. Went to use it yesterday for some backgound music at our Christmas party.

Loaded and ran fine, played fine on a TV connected via component cables.

But refused to output any audio via the HDMI connection. Tivo works fine / normal on this connection to my reciever, but not JukeBox.

If this is yet another example of DRM getting in the way of properly working connections, I'll abandon the HDMI connection to my reciever to projector.

Just thought I would ask if anyone has thoughts on why only Jukebox / HME is not outputting any audio on HDMI?

I did try changing from DolbyDigital to PCM output and back but nothing changed.

Channels not tuning

Sun, 12/09/2012 - 08:23
I have Time Warner Cable with tuning adapters. I also have a Premiere Elite (XL4) and a regular Premiere. I noticed a problem the last few days and am not sure how long it has been there. This happens on both Tivos. If you are in the HD channels (700-800) and if you surf channels by using the channel up or down on the remote some of the channels will not tune in. It is different channels all the time and if a channel does not tune you can't get it to tune if you use the buttons and select the numbers. As you scroll up and down some channels will not tune but as you come back to them they will tune in and maybe others will not. It seems quite random. It works fine on the "lower" channels. Can anyone else duplicate this? Thanks.

Corrupt - Delete Me

Sun, 12/09/2012 - 07:37
I'm messing around getting my Season Passes to align exactly between an S4 (Premiere Series 4 - 2 tuner) and a new P4 (Premiere 4 - 4 tuner).

Transferring all the S4 SPs online into the new P4 worked - but the upcoming To Do lists do NOT align. Some upcoming things for the S4 are completely missing from the P4 - surprising since the P4 has two more open tuners!

So - I figured the ORDER of things in SPs might make a difference and tried to realign them online - which resulted in Corrupt - Delete Me (pictured) on the P4 - this has been like this for over an hour now. These things do not show up on the online UI....but they do show up on the iPad UI.

I'm going to hope/assume these "corrupt" SPs go away eventually? Or am I going to have to do something to help clean them out? (I already tried running the Manual > Connect to the TiVo service now....didn't clear them out). hmmm

Anyway I figured out that re-ordering the priority on SPs online might not be the way to go - next step - after hopefully all these corrupt files get cleared out - is to realign them on the P4 box itself and hope that the "missing" To Do List items wake up.
