Nashville "Pilot" (10/10/2012, Spoilers)

Wed, 10/10/2012 - 22:18
Interesting idea for a series. Is this really the first Nashville or country music based series? If so, credit the show creators, because this clearly is an idea for a series that is way overdue. I wouldn't be surprised if this series isn't too far off of some of the real drama that happens around Music Row. I was interested enough, even though I'm not really all that into most country music.

So far, it's very country music oriented... but with the Juliette Barnes character having some vague similarities to a Taylor Swift-like performer, I wonder if the parallels will continue to show the crossover between country music and pop.

I also wonder how fictional they will keep this version of Nashville, or whether they'll start to feature drop-in guest stars from the real world of country music.

I'll keep watching for now, if only because there isn't a whole lot else on Wednesday nights.

Thought they might actually win for once (or at least not come in last) but oh well....

Also I didn't save last week's episode, but didn't some of the women sit out the challenge? Thought you couldn't sit out the same people 2 straight challenges

Tivo XL4 menu problem

Wed, 10/10/2012 - 21:34
Have a new Tivo XL4 and have noticed a problem sometimes when deleting Tivo suggestions while they are recording.

In the Tivo Suggestions, I hit the clear button to delete an active recording, the menu with the 3 options comes up [Stop Recording, Stop Recording and Delete and Cancel]. Occasionally, the focus isn't on the delete menu, but still on the list of Tivo Suggestions. If you try to use the back arrow to dismiss the screen or hit the clear button again, it blanks out the entire screen (just black).

Sometimes you can hit the TIVO button to restart the menu, but a couple of time all I saw was a blank screen with only the live channel window. You have to unplug the TIVO and restart it to clear the problem.

The software is up to date. Anyone have any ideas?

Supernatural - "What's Up, Tiger Mommy?" - 10/10/12

Wed, 10/10/2012 - 21:09
Well. This isn't wasting time is it? Okay jumbled thoughts for now so forgive. I'll have to watch again to pick up more stuff.

Is it just me or was the music really odd. Almost comedic. I didn't like it. It didn't fit the feel of the episode to me.

But Cas didn't hug back so does it count as their first hug?

Crowley red demon eyes finally! Red smoke! Dude. So classy.
"The winchesters, well they have a habit of using people up, and watching them die bloody"
How can you not love him. He's smarter than everyone.

Sorry but
Spoiler: Jared looked amazing. I can't get over how much I love his hair. The hammer is awesome! Really glad he didn't give that back. Please tell me they take that with them. We need more cool weapons like that. The demon knife is awesome but old hat.

And Sam instantly tries to comfort Dean when he says people he doesn't need end up dead. Oh Sammy. I really need to know why he didn't look for Dean.

Cas at the end. Wow. That was not good.

ETA: Sam with the trick! If he stopped hunting how did he learn to keep the demon inside by saying it backward? hmmm.....

Arrow - Pilot - 10/10/12

Wed, 10/10/2012 - 21:00
Owes a lot to Nolan's version of Batman and I had to get used to Stephen Arnell after several years of watching Justin Hartley on Smallville but overall, not bad.

Green Arrow was one of the few things I liked about Smallville at the end, so I'm looking forward to seeing this interpretation of the character and his DC universe... SP safely in place for now.

I Have Moved and Need Some Advice With Transfers

Wed, 10/10/2012 - 18:31

I have a TiVo Premiere and just moved and I have a new cable company that sets all non broadcast channels to 0x02 copy protection. My previous company did 0x00 except movie channels and such, which was not a problem. What I like to do is record sporting events and transfer to PC and edit commercials, back them up to external hard drive, and watch later. Now I can't always do that depending on the channel.

I am open to some sort of workaround since I have only one cable option here. Is there any video capture solution where I can perhaps record to my PC and/or play my copy protected programs on the Premiere and show my TV screen on my PC and record the image? I prefer to be able to do this in HD but I will settle for standard def or using component cables to convert an HDMI quality which I guess is the next best thing. HD takes up a lot more hard drive space anyway.

I really only want nothing more than to do what I was doing with my old company. These are programs I really can't pay to own, either, so that's why it's such a big deal to me. Plus it's a hobby.

Anybody got a suggestion? I have researched and I have found some possible solutions but I'm not clear they'll work and they're expensive enough that I'm out of some money if they don't do what I need them to do.

Help? Thanks!

Prime Time on TiVo App

Wed, 10/10/2012 - 14:56
On the program guide in the TiVo iDevice app does anyone know how to change the prime time button to show guide information starting at 7:00 instead of 8:00? Some people tend to forget that for half of the country prime time starts at 7:00.

Shortcut for Toggling between HD and SD menus?

Wed, 10/10/2012 - 14:56
Is there such a shortcut that I could program into my Harmony One?

One post said: Thumbs Down ; Thumbs Up ; Pause ; Pause would work, but I get no effect from that sequence.

Thanks in advance.

Content Ratings in HD Menus --- Where

Wed, 10/10/2012 - 14:54
I cannot find the content ratings in the HD menu system on my new Premier (with the latest firmware). They are still showing up in the SD menus. What am I missing?

MOCA Networking Adapter

Wed, 10/10/2012 - 13:40
Hello Everyone

I was thinking of switching out from Wireless AP Bridges to connect all my TVIO's and switching over to MOCA Adapters.

What specific adapter are people using now? I looked up the NEtgear MOCA Adapter and it appears to be discontinued.


secret TiVo upgrade codes HR23 and HR24

Wed, 10/10/2012 - 13:16
Forgive me if this is a known fact, but I'm on a phone and didn't find the answer in a quick search. I've been away from DirecTV since TiVo left it several years ago. I'm now moving into a new Miami building that uses Hotwire Communications for tv, phone, Internet so I can't use a CableCard TiVo. Only option left was to get DirecTV with TiVo. The buildings managers tried to stop me from putting the dish on the balcony but I prevailed with the law on my side. But the the installer shows up with genetic DirecTV DVRs instead of the TiVos I ordered and told me they don't have them in stock, order from SolidSignal. Then the tech looks at my HR23 used to test the system and tells me he can put in a secret code to get the TiVo interface downloaded to it and suggests I get the HR24, the latest technology box, and he'll do the same thing with that. I watched him enter a secret code on the remote and pulled a switch on the side of the receiver and it appeared to be downloading new software. Didn't have time to wait, had to get back to work, but is this legit? And will an HR 24 with TiVo software on it have any more functionality than the HR23 or the TiVo-branded box?

Again I apologize if these issues are already known.

Tivo Stream "download" feature possible with Slingbox?

Wed, 10/10/2012 - 13:12
I've been told that Slingbox have been doing for years what Tivo-Stream is now doing.

Question for Slingbox users... is it possible to "download" to iphone same way as Tivo-Stream is offering now?

Ethernet Over Coax (MoCA) question

Wed, 10/10/2012 - 11:38
I have a home that has numerous coaxial jacks throughout. They aren't be used with my TiVos at all (lines installed on outside of house are being used for TiVo). However, there are splitters on some of these unused inside coaxial lines. One line from outside feeds 2-3 rooms/jacks (depending on line) inside the house.

I would like to maybe use these coaxial jacks for networking purposes (for future TiVo and/or other PC needs). Could I possibly use a MoCA kit of some kind over these coaxial lines even though they have splitters on them?

Upgrade drive vs DVR Expander - Pros and Cons?

Wed, 10/10/2012 - 10:22
I'm looking at increasing the capacity of my Premiere, which is now three months old. I've read through the various posts about upgrading the disk, and it looks like it's fairly simple to do. I liked the upside on that option that you end up with a backup TiVo disk. I've also been looking for info on using the WD Expander, but there isn't so much info on that.

Does anyone know what the advantage/disadvantage is to each solution? The cost is going to be about the same for a new drive or the Expander through Amazon.

Anyone any thoughts on the reliability/noise of the expander unit?

no signal on 1 tuner, fine on the other. Mcard with Fios

Wed, 10/10/2012 - 09:29
i've done a good bit of searching on here, but can't seem to find the exact same scenario. A lot of people have a pixelation problem, mine though is a total drop of signal.

So here's the problem- i have a TivoHD with an MCard on Fios. Things were working just fine until recently. Noticed that on one tuner (tuner 0) i often have no signal. The other tuner works just fine though. I can get it to behave sporadically (reboot fixes it for a short while, or sometimes recording on the good tuner and changing channel on the bad one kicks it into gear, only for it to go bad in a few minutes).

In the diagnostic screen, here is what i see for the bad tuner when it's not working:

here's what shows up on the GOOD tuner

Now, when i get the bad tuner to kick in, this is what i see. note that the RS uncorrected just goes up very quickly. it was at over 500 in a matter of a minute or so. Also, the QAM kept flipping between 256 and 64, with the signal strength flipping between 87 and 93 (that was flipping with the QAM)

what the heck? i have another TivoHD in another room that is working fine with the same setup (1 MCard). the problem one DOEs have a longer run of coax between it and the ONT, and it's old rg59 coax... but i can't believe that this is the issue since it's been working fine for about 11 months now. The tivo itself is about 4 years old, so i'm wondering if it a tivo hardware issue.

in another thread, i've read that an attenuator may help for similar issues, but that thread was more for a pixelation problem, so i haven't tried that yet.

any thoughts? i'll be calling verizon when i get home tonight, but wanted to have some educated info before dealing with them.

Can I use my TiVo with ClearQAM (i.e. no CableCARD) ?

Wed, 10/10/2012 - 07:54
I'm not getting my cablecard's until Friday, but my TiVo Premiere XL4 will be delivered today.

On my coax line, I do receive a handful of clear qam channels...

Will I be able to fool around with my TiVo before installing the cablecard?

Mythbusters - Titanic Survival

Wed, 10/10/2012 - 06:40
Has anyone watched this? Usually I get annoyed by the people who complain they got things wrong, but this episode had me scratching my head.

All during the build team's experiment I was thinking:

1. The guy in the picture obviously only had one big rocket
2. I doubt he was skilled enough to time various rockets
3. He did not have a specially shaped surfboard or a handhold
4. Corey's ride was nowhere near 30 seconds

At least at the end they redeemed themselves and busted the myth. Usually they bust it first and then try to duplicate the results.

I also did not like what Adam and Jamie did.

1. Why would you use "authentic" prop wood? The movie is supposed to be recreating the Titanic. You need to use the type of wood which would have been on the Titanic.

2. By their own hypothermia results they should have concluded that Rose would have been too frozen to blow her whistle by the time the boat came back to rescue them. Therefore they both would have died either way.
