TCD746500 w/75 hours=TCD750500?

Thu, 02/07/2013 - 07:48
I've got a chance to buy a new Premiere 4 at a very good price, and it has the 75 hr. drive, which I want, but is a TCD746500. I was under the impression that the 750500 had the bigger drive while the 746500 had the 45 hr. drive. The box does say "expanded edition" and "75 HD hours" so I assume I was mistaken.

My question is- will I be missing out on any features of the 750500 by buying the expanded edition of the older model?

Supernatural - "Everybody Hates Hitler" - 2/6/13

Thu, 02/07/2013 - 07:02
Well that was kind of fun. I'd say it was a filler episode but there were a few references that were important. And the new set is just amazing!! I love that they kind of have a home again. Once Bobby's house burned down they were left without a place to go and this place is safe and secret and I'm betting they keep it that way!

Smart Sam is so awesome. He's in heaven with all the stuff in that bunker to research and read. And Dean in the bathrobe with the sword. :up:

And that ending scene. Dean going for the beers and changing his mind and getting out the good stuff.
Dean: So you're a Man of Letter now? Good. :):):)

No controversy again this week for the brothers. We got some hurt Sam and protective big brother again. You know I'm a sucker for that! The Golem was actually cool and I didn't see him being a "good guy" so to speak. And they left him with Aaron and went home. They are learning! (not that they had much of a choice but still, when has that stopped them?)

And Sammy cursing TWICE! First saying "Son of a bitch" when they got inside the bunker than later "How about you screw yourself, nazi bastard"... why do I like that so much? Maybe because it's not expected out of our nice boy.

And on a final note, Dean never fails to entertain me with his very uncomfortable reactions to being thought gay. When we thought Aaron was hitting on him, that entire sequence should have been eye rolling because it's so typical of the "oh I misunderstood our vibe" thing that's always done but Jensen's facial expressions are just gold. I could have that happen every episode.

Okay I think that's all I got. Thoughts?! :)

Suburgatory "Body Talk" OAD 2/9/2013

Thu, 02/07/2013 - 00:29
When Sitcoms Collide!

The episode opens with Tessa and Ryan at the lunch table. Ryan has just told her that he has to eat 30 grams of animal protein at every meal.

Ryan is chowing down on on big ass drumstick, and his plate is loaded with meat.


This has sent my physicist husband off onto a Sheldon-like riff about how much 30 grams of protein would actually be, demonstrating how many quarters it would take up to make a mass that was 30 grams.

Spoiler: the quarter is 5.670 g, according to The US Mint

And mocking me because I had forgotten how many grams a quarter weighs.

Thank goodness for TiVo. ;)

Problems publishing own RSS feed

Thu, 02/07/2013 - 00:03
I've been banging my head against a brick wall for the last few days trying to get my personal RSS Feed working on my Series3 Tivo box.

My box is connected to the Internet and I am able to view the Whitehouse RSS videos. I used the Whitehouse XML as a starting point for my XML.

My RSS info comes up on the Tivo box but when I try to play the video, I get this error:

The service timed out before it was able to retrieve your video to play or download. The may be caused by a temporary network outage, please try your request again later

I can view the XML file and associated video through my browser. I know my Tivo is on the network as I can play the Whitehouse videos without a problem. The XML file is pointing to the correct video file because the video will play when viewed through the browser.

I've encoded the video to be the same format as the Whitehouse video and I have the correct MIME type for the video (video/x-m4v).

I'm at a loss for what to try next.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

XL4 Doesn't Show Up on HD

Wed, 02/06/2013 - 22:35
I want to transfer shows from the XL4 to the HD, but the XL4 Doesn't Show Up on HD. The HD does show up on the XL4, though, and I am able to transfer shows from the HD to the XL4 just fine. Has anyone encountered this? I have contacted Tivo support 3 times, and they haven't been able to figure it out.

Super HD Rocks on the Premiere!

Justified S2E05 OAD 2/5/2013 "Kin"

Wed, 02/06/2013 - 19:50
Wow, lots of guest stars in this one. I was happy to see Winona, especially, and disappointed her appearance was so brief.

Was Josiah an old character making a return, or someone new the show treated like an old foe of Raylan's? I'm trying to track how Boyd knew to go right to him to find Drew Thompson. Either way, I don't guess he'll be making another appearance now!

My one nitpick with this episode is Colton not telling Boyd about Ellen May. Yes, Boyd would be ticked about it, but it's clear the worse outcome for Colton is going to come from not telling him. This feels like an action Colton is taking because the plot needs him to, not because it's what the character actually would do.

Lost TiVo Desktop with latest upgrade

Wed, 02/06/2013 - 19:07
After the latest upgrade, I don't see my TiVo desktop on my ToDo list anymore. The Desktop shows up on my TiVo Series 3, and the TivoToGo status in System Information is 'a,a,a'. After rebooting all around, the TiVo desktop still doesn't show up. (And this even after I transfer programs from the Premiere to TiVo Desktop).

Any thoughts?

FWIW, the TiVo desktop is on Windows 8, 64-bit and is the current version.


Getting service on a used TiVO?

Wed, 02/06/2013 - 18:36
I currently have a Premiere unit with lifetime service and was thinking about purchasing a second unit, I was waffling back and forth if I should get the Premiere 4 (no interested in the XL models as I have no need for THX) and decided that with two units I don't really need a 4 tuner unit.

So the question is, if I buy a used Premiere that currently does not have service does TiVo allow me to add it to my account and purchase lifetime service on the unit for the reduced price of $399 (vs the regular $499)?

Any special hoops I have to jump through to prove its in the same location as the other unit?

I figured I'd ask here before I purchase a unit or raise a red flag with TiVO.



Local Channels for my "Property"

Wed, 02/06/2013 - 13:24
My condo complex has 3 channels for local origination on our cable system, which is operated by Comcast.

Because they aren't available on the general Comcast system, Tivo Lineup support says that they are "Property" channels and can't be included in a lineup that I can select.:confused:

Any suggestions on how I can view these channels with my Premier XL's?

The Following - The Poets Fire - 2/4/13

Wed, 02/06/2013 - 10:31
Not that great IMO. Maybe each week there will be a "surprise" follower, like Maggie this week, but I guess it wasn't really a surprise. Very little Natalie Zea :( I'll keep "following" the show to see where it goes but I'm starting to lose interest already.

Dogs smell!!

Wed, 02/06/2013 - 08:51
As some of you may recall - We have a new puppy. She's doing great. Almost potty trained, great attitude and spirit...good stuff. I taught her to sit on the first day she was home with us!

I am very odor conscious. If I don't have candles going, I have mulling spices simmering on the stove, etc..

Dogs kind of smell...well...like dogs.

I don't want to bath her too much - I figure that's probably not great for her skin or fur, right? I do it about once a week with some gentle puppy shampoo (that smells like dog to me, btw)

I saw some "freshener" sprays at Pet Smart to use in between baths, but it didn't smell that great to me. It kind of smells like dog, too :o

Are there other places that have them that have a wide variety? Any other suggestions?

It's not putrid or anything - you can't smell her when you come in the house - but when we're cuddling or something (she's very cuddly with GF and me), it's just not very pleasing.

Moving season passes using tivo.com doesnt work

Wed, 02/06/2013 - 08:39
I have a Premiere, and am trying to move my season passes to a Premiere4

I am using the www.tivo.com, season pass manager

I moved them, and about half showed 'corrupt-delete me', a known problem for shows that are no longer active in the guides. My problem is that quite a few WERE still active shows!!! So I deleted the new season passes and moved the Season passes about 10 at a time, and the first 20 moved with only 3 corrupt ones.

Here is where the problem now occurs. I cam move more over to the TP4, and the SP Manager on the website says they are moved, BUT THE TP4 doesn't show them!!

I tried clear program info and todo list, and the web SP Manager shows the machine has no season passes, even though there are 15 shown on the tivo, so something broke.

I CAN make season passes and might have to manually make the 27 missing ones.

Anyone seen this? And I can't run 'clear and delete everything', as I spent 6 DAYS moving all my recorded shows to the new TP4

TIVO HD: Not Getting Full Recording

Wed, 02/06/2013 - 08:02
Not sure if anyone else is having this problem. I have a TIVO HD, with a Verizon FIOS, Cable Card.

Some of the programs I have been recording are skipping to the end, and I am getting only "half" a program.

Last night, I got 15 minutes of "The New Girl" It recorded the beginning played for a bit, then it seemed like a slight pixalation issue occurred, then boom, its at the end of the program, only 15 minutes total recorded..

It happened to me on Shark Tank last week as well, and "the Following" as well.

Is this a cable card issue or a Tivo HD issue?

Not sure if anyone else has been having this weird problem.

I am going to try and record some stuff off my antenna to see if it is a cable card issue, but wanted to know if anyone else has had this problem.

Thanks for the help.

Buggy Season Pass Options?

Wed, 02/06/2013 - 06:15
I am switching from DirecTV to Comcast and TiVo. One thing I have noticed is that the options for setting season passes do not seem to work well. On most shows, I only want to record New episodes and not reruns. This works fantastic on DirecTV's DRVs but not so much on TiVo's. I have read through several threads on here related to specific shows but just curious why TiVo has such a tough time with this when DirecTV seems to have it nailed?

Tivo Premiere - before I buy Moca's

Wed, 02/06/2013 - 00:42
I have two Premiere's and both are very good at streaming from YouTube (HD files), Netflix, Hulu+ but I cannot multi-stream without almost immediate video stutter.

The network is wireless-G using four (4) Linksys routers three have DDWRT and are in bridge mode - each Tivo has its on bridge. The main router is standard Linksys GUI connected to a SB5101 cable modem. The house is a 1965 sf two-story.

I understand that some folks have had success with multi-streaming wireless to their Tivo's and since I have great success with watching streaming tv and movies I thought maybe I don't have something configured in the wireless.

If I go the Moca route - it's going to cost about $228 just for the Moca's - I need 3 so I might as well get a 4th and use it or sell it on ebay.

I'd appreciate any feedback here.

Thank you in advance.

Moving between show details with channel up/down

Wed, 02/06/2013 - 00:24
Hello all!

Is there a way on the Premier when viewing a recorded shows details to move to the next or previous show? On my TivoHD, I could use the Channel Up/Down buttons to move between shows within the same group?
