Cablecard self install - Charter

Fri, 07/26/2013 - 23:47
Finally got around to getting Cablecards for my TiVos. The CSR at the local Charter office said just put them in and they should activate automatically, but the emergengy instructions in case it doesn't automatically activate apper to be for a standard digital cable box reset.

The online intructions say to record numbers on the cablecard, install the card then call Charter with recorded numbers and numbers on the screen, then install the Tuning adapter.

Which is correct?

The CSR?


The instructions on the Charter web site?

Any insights appreciated,


Suggestions stopped recording

Fri, 07/26/2013 - 23:01
I have a Series 3 and an HD - and both of them have stopped recording suggestions! I've had these boxes for many years and this has never happened. Just noticed it today.

The Series 3 has not recorded a suggestion since 7/18 and the HD since 7/23. They both have >100 GB of space in deleted shows, and they both (historically) record suggestions daily.

I rebooted the Series 3 since it was the worst offender and it didn't record in 12 hours. Just followed an instruction I found online to change setting to not record suggestions, restart, change setting back to record, reboot. Have done that but won't know until tomorrow I guess if that worked.

Anyone else experience this with tried 'n true Tivos?

Also - haven't restarted my Tivo in forever, but didn't get the Tivo guy just static when it restarted. Got the wait screens but not the animation - that used to be the best part! Where's Tivo Guy? This isn't right!

When using FF to get to live - audio stops

Fri, 07/26/2013 - 15:45
I've recently upgraded to a Premiere 4 and love it but there is one bug driving me crazy.

When watching a delayed live channel such as a baseball game but I'm back in time...

then I fast forward towards real time...

when I hit real-time it reverts to 'play' but the audio is not present. I have to hit the 5-sec rewind button to get the audio back.

Anyone have any ideas or seen anything similar?

moca install trouble

Fri, 07/26/2013 - 14:45
I'm trying to install moca on my DSL from AT%T. I have the POE filter on at the box incoming cable just before a 3 splitter coming into the house.

plugged the WAN into the modem/router (it is an actiontec GT784wn) plugged the router to the actiontec Moca adapter, plugged the coax cable from the wall to the actiontec moca adapter and then into the tivo.

I still get cable (noticed its a little slower to come in) on both TVS

In the other room is my premier 4 and it is not detecting moca.

The COAX light is not showing on the MOCA adapter. Power and ethernet are green. How do I troubleshoot from here? is my modem/router compatible? do I need to enable something?

Anyone else having this problem?

CableCard "errors" 2XL/4XL w/Moto card

Fri, 07/26/2013 - 09:29
I've posted previously regarding SNR #'s and Signal Strength issues. Comcast has replaced some grounding blocks that certainly displayed issues and the SNR#'s have improved to TiVo standards but I've still got image issues and the Uncorrected Errors and Corrected Errors are crazy high numbers.

I've reset both my machines a couple times which clears the cache but I've still got ridiculous I believe issues there. TiVo says should have near 0 - could some of you just post #'s from the cable card diagnostics page for your Uncorrected and Corrected numbers and maybe include the SNR# recorded also. The connect time is shown in seconds and I don't know that I'm concerned with that, I'm more interested with maybe establishing a ratio of the uncorrected to the corrected.

I don't believe that there's a difference in machines and i mentioned it's a Motorola Card


Big Brother 07-25-2013

No surprise that Kaitlyn went home. She really was the best choice. Get her out while you can.

I wonder if Aryn is going to keep her deal or totally screw them over. Should be an interesting week.

Why is my space disappearing on my HD3?

Fri, 07/26/2013 - 04:24
I have an HD3 TiVo 1350 which supposedly has 1241 SD hours. To save space, I record in SD.

When I left for a 3 day trip, I deleted as much as possible. I had recordings to protect from a few years ago (but not on KUID). When I returned Sunday, all was well, but my deleted recordings were down to about 100. It seemed like I page upped fewer times and noticed that was odd.

(Usually, I have 200-400 deleted recordings, and can page up about 20-25 times to the top.)

Yesterday, I went to undelete a program, and there were only TWO programs in my undelete file, and I sure didn't record 100 shows and had also done daily multiple deletes. It seems like many recordings have disappeared too.

So, I diligently removed more programs that I figure I won't watch, and got up to 67, I think. This morning, there are only 54 programs in my deleted file.

What could be happening? Where are my programs going? What should I do to stop this shrinking of my HD?

Any ideas or suggestions? Do you need more information from me? Thanks.

PBS Station Promotes Spot-On Fake Reality Shows to Illustrate Sad State of TV

Thu, 07/25/2013 - 20:21
To demonstrate the sad state of television programming, PBS station WNET is promoting a series of fake reality shows that are absurd and idiotic but sadly, would not look out of place on TV. As part of the campaign the station produced thoroughly convincing trailers for three of them: Long Island Landscapers, Clam Kings, and Meet the Tanners. The campaign urges viewers who have “had enough of bad television” to support WNET.http://www.thirteen.org/tvgonewrong/




Court sides with Dish Re: Commercial Skipping

Thu, 07/25/2013 - 02:23
In other news, the 9th Circuit sided with Dish in Fox's lawsuit against them regarding the Hopper's channel-skipping feature.


Doesn't impact Tivo directly right now, but should they one day decide that trying to be cozy with content partners won't pay the bills, they have some legal leverage to do the same.

Tivo stream and fios

Wed, 07/24/2013 - 22:12

For those of you with FIOS service...I am in the process of converting from Xfinity to FIOS - will have FIOS installed next week. I have four TIVO devices - a TIVO Premiere 4, a TIVO Premiere, a TIVO 3 HD, and a TIVO Mini. I will not have any FIOS boxes. I am debating the value of also obtaining a TIVO stream. Do the various FIOS apps allow you to stream/record to IPADs and other mobile devices and have a good selection of shows and movies? Or would a TIVO stream give me a lot more options and flexibility?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts....

Your favorite Law & Order Franchise detectives.

Wed, 07/24/2013 - 20:03
There were so many! But I was just wondering what everyone's favorites were.

Go to this link and there's a list.


There are so many, but I think this'd be my top five:

1. Lennie Briscoe. One of my favorite characters on TV period.
2. Robert Goren (CI) Love his mental instability.
3. Munch (SVU): He makes me laugh
4. Zach Nichols (CI) Weird choice, but he really grew on me in his one season.
5. This one's a toss up. I loved Alex Eames, but I also enjoyed Captain Danny Ross (CI)

(List however many you like.)

cablevision has a 10 tuner dvr!!

Wed, 07/24/2013 - 18:27
wow! just read over at fierce cable website where cablevision now has a 10 tuner dvr that lets you record 10 shows at once!!! Makes me wish cablevision was available in my area! I hate to say it but tivo seems to be getting further and further behind.:eek:

Prop mistakes in The Killing.

Wed, 07/24/2013 - 13:55
In a recent episode radio communications between officers played a central role. Obviously noone involved with obtaining props for the show is an amateur radio operator.

In the show the cophouse base radio was repeatedly shown tuned to the 20-meter ham band which is exclusively assigned to the amateur radio service in the US not public service. And, even if they had FCC special permission to use it, it is not particularly effective for local communications.

And finally, one of the detectives used a handheld radio to communicate with the base radio but handheld units are not manufactured for this band.

Let the "so whats" begin. ;)

Tuning adapter question

Wed, 07/24/2013 - 09:32
I have two Motorola tuning adapters and both exhibit the same behavior, so I believe I can rule out a hardware issue. That said, I'm wondering if anyone else is experiencing the following:

Every time my cable company experiences an outage or my power goes out, my tuning adapters go out of sync with a flashing amber light and has caused me to miss recordings especially if I'm traveling. No matter how long I leave them, they will never go back in sync unless I power cycle them and this usually solves the issue. There are times however, where multiple power cycles are necessary to get them back in sync. My cable company (Bright House) seems clueless as to why this is happening and can't seem to produce an answer.

Yet another frustrating issue with tuning adapters and SDV...

Series 2 with DTA - TiVo scrambling video

Wed, 07/24/2013 - 03:10
I have an old Series 2 (AT&TiVo) that is now connected to a DTA. I set up the DTA over 6 months ago, and everything has been working fine.

But today, after maybe a week of not watching this TV, I turn it on and find that all of the video looks scrambled. This is on every channel. The TiVo menus look fine, only the channel video is scrambled. I assumed a problem with the DTA and power-cycled it.

However, that didn't fix it, so I hit Standby on the TiVo, which enables RF passthrough so I can see the DTA output directly on the TV. Low and behold, the video looks just fine. All of the channels look good.

But when I go back to the TiVo, all the video is still scrambled. I restarted the TiVo, which didn't help at all. Then I re-ran Guided setup to repeat the cable box setup. That didn't help either, as all through Guided setup the video was scrambled still.

How can the TiVo be scrambling what appears to be a perfectly good video signal? Could it be a hardware failure? I wasn't able to find any similar reports on the forum.

Thanks for any help.

Herbal Remedies For Actinic Keratosis

Wed, 07/24/2013 - 01:27
What is Actinic Keratosis?
Actinic Keratosis is a skin disorder in which involves very small, elevated rough and reddish bumps on the skin when a person has had a lot of sun exposure lately. This condition is common and most apparent in those with fair complexion and neat skin. The severe form of this disease can lead to skin cancer but at initial stages this disorder is less harmful but causes major discomfort. The bumps and lesions formed on the skin due to Actinic Keratosis are reddish in color and their texture is quite rough.
How is it caused?
Actinic Keratosis is caused due to several reasons amongst them all the major reason is excessive exposure to sun. People having fair skin are more prone to this disorder and those with blue or green eyes or even blond or red hair. Those who have had a kidney transplant in the past are also at a higher risk of suffering from this disorder. Medicines that usually suppress the immune system can also be a major cause of origination of Actinic Keratosis. Not just this severe sunburns and old age is also an eminent factor that leads to this skin disorder so one has to be very careful especially those with very fair complexion.
