Bates Motel S1E1 OAD 3/18/13 First You Dream, Then You Die (spoilers)

Mon, 03/18/2013 - 16:39
Very much looking forward to this tonight. Carlton Cuse from Lost and a producer from Friday Night Lights are behind it.
I love Vera Farmiga in anything, (she plays Mother) so I cannot wait to see how she turns her son into a psycho.
From what I have read, this takes place in the present day, not during the time the movie was based in.

Has anyone figured out why the Netflix App...

Mon, 03/18/2013 - 15:51
Keeps switching in and out of 1080p24hz, with accompanying black screen? I have two internet providers, 6 meg and 20 meg, and it does it with both. Constantly. I've changed to the Google DNS settings, nothing seems to work. No problem with Netflix HD content that's not 1080p24hz, and I have multiple AppleTVs and Blu Ray players that display Netflix, and everything else, just fine-- again, though, no 1080p24hz. I know I could just turn it off, but it looks so good. Same problem using both Yamaha and Onkyo receivers (with scaling turned off, I believe), but all of the TVs are Sharps, if that matters (The Sharps definitely display 1080p24hz, they even display native PAL without a converter, fyi). I'd appreciate any advice. Thanks

The Amazing Race - OAD 3/17/2013

"Phil, we quit"

"I'm sorry to tell you that you've been eliminated from the race."

Seemed kind of an odd way to accept their decision of quitting. Even more so when the rednecks got to the mat last and found out that they weren't eliminated.

New thought on Tivo Premiere VOD GSM-7/11 Errors

Mon, 03/18/2013 - 11:49
Just a thought. Originally Comcast cable cards installed in a TiVo was only one way. Now, somehow, the TiVo premiere is able to send a request to select an Xfinity VOD program. Is this request sent via the coax or might it be going through the Ethernet/Internet connection? Could this thing with the GSM errors be the result of a bad or corrupt message being sent to Xfinity VOD via the Internet? Is it possible that the problem is not on the cable tv side but on the Internet side? Does anyone know if Comcast made some Internet modification recently?

channel signal strength on XL4

Mon, 03/18/2013 - 11:33
I have a new XL4 and I wanted to check out what the signal strengths are- not that there is any problem, I just wanted to see if the strengths were good or marginal. I went to the settings/channel menu and when I select channel signal strength I get a message saying that I can't get signal strength because I don't have any digital channels. Of course ALL my channels are digital.

I don't have this problem on my two tuner Premiere.

Is this some kind of bug?

Segmentation fault with MFSLive

Mon, 03/18/2013 - 09:07
I encountered this error when trying to swap a 2TB for a 1TB HDD in a "HD model 652":

Quote: backup[941]: segfault at c ip 0804DC82 sp bfb29508 error 4 in backup[8048000+ c001]

restore failed: -:success

segmentation fault I'm using MFS V1.4 The drive being imaged is a 2TB taken out of a model 652 (HD). The destination HDD is a 1TB HDD which was never installed. Ythe 2TB will go in another 652 later.
I have done this before (successfully) with the same boot CD. From what I have read on this, it seems it's something that happens inside the O/S, not from a boot CD. Does the source or the destination drive have anything to do with this? Is a 2TB drive a problem here?

2TB HD died, still under warranty; options?

Mon, 03/18/2013 - 09:00
I have my 2-year old Premiere on a UPS, but a power surge fried the cable card and the Tivo is stuck on an endless loop ("Powering up..." screen, then reboots).

Tivo support said the hard drive was toast.

I popped the original HD back in, and after getting a replacement cable card, it is up and running again.

1) Should I just go through Western Digital and get a replacement hard drive since it's still (amazingly) under warranty (based on the serial number)?

2) What are the chances that I could "revive" the old 2TB hard drive to get any shows off of it, or even clone it to the new hard drive once it arrives?

3) If #2, then best options to accomplish that? Hook hard drive up to PC and run diagnostics on it? Spinrite? Others?


P.S. I can't think of anything absolutely essential on the hard drive that I need, so I might save myself the hassle and just put the new drive in. Just want to know my options

What other TV shows need a fan funded movie?

Mon, 03/18/2013 - 08:35
Friday Night Lights? That would be interesting. Movie--> TV Show --> Movie

Dead Like Me? Oh wait they got one it sucked.

Pushing Daises? Is there enough of a fan following?

My P4 Review

Mon, 03/18/2013 - 07:05
After a week, this thing kicks ass. It has been great so far during hockey season as we can record our primetime shows with buffers and still watch the hockey game. Speed is dead on to what my 2 tuner was which I had no issues with the HDUI. The moca bridge has been great also as I was able to get rid of a moca adaptor

How Technology is Changing the Way We Watch TV (VIDEO)

Mon, 03/18/2013 - 07:04
This weekends Engadget Expand panel discussion, moderated by @rjcc, with Jim Denney, Product Marketing Manager of TiVo and representatives from Boxee and Sling. IMHO, Jim does a good job of explaining the TiVo value proposition and hints at some of the things we'll see explored in TiVo's future products and services.


SSD for Tivo Premier

Mon, 03/18/2013 - 05:09
I read a post dated 08-26-2010 regarding adding a 512 GB SSD drive in a Tivo HD. from TexasGrillChef
Now that SSD have come down in price, I am thinking of buying an SSD and install in my Tivo Premier.

Can someone give some me some info on how to do it.
Like for example...
Do you add the SSD as an external device ??
Or installed it internally ?? If internal, how do you configured so that Tivo would boot up ???

Any other info/help will be appreciated.

Spoiler warning for the Walking Dead

Mon, 03/18/2013 - 01:49
Some body got a hold of screeners for the last two episodes of the walking dead. They've made screen caps of MAJOR spoilers and are being spread around the internets. Over at 4chan and reddit, trolls are putting these images in unrelated discussions and intentionally mis labeling them.

Personally I'm going to stop reading forums for two weeks. I've read these are show killing spoilers.

Conflicting Remotes

Sun, 03/17/2013 - 23:29
My 90-year-old mother is in a nursing home and very dependent on her TiVo (Premier) and Vizio TV. Her new roommate has an LG TV. It turns out that Vizio and LG televisions use the same coding in their IR remotes. Result: two old ladies sitting in their wheelchairs turning each other's TV on and off and changing each other's volume. They had no idea what was going on, and it took me awhile to figure it out. (At least the TiVo keeps them from changing each other's channels as well.)

Both are on Medicaid, can't afford new TVs (Medicaid takes all but $35/month of whatever income you have). I can't give my mother a new TV; Medicaid would consider that "income." A little box of electronics in the sub-$100 range would probably be acceptable. The TVs are about 8' apart, there's no way to separate them further and IR bounces all over the room.

A possible solution would be a small receiver that uses different IR codes AND has a controllable AC socket that the TV can be plugged into. But for under $100?

Any suggestions?

Using the "tv input" button on my Tivo remote

Sun, 03/17/2013 - 19:53
I have a Panasonic HD TV. Model # is TH-42PZ85U. It is exactly 5 years old.

On my TV, when I want to change the source input(e.g., changing from "HDMI 1" over to "HDMI 2") my regular TV remote can do this quite easily. My TV remote gives me an on screen display and allows me to go up or down between the source inputs.

I have a Tivo premiere with the "regular" remote control(not Glo, not slide remote, etc.)

I tried to program the "TV input" function on the Tivo remote. If I repeatedly hit the "TV input" key on the remote, it will allow me to scroll DOWN the TV input sources. However, it does will not allow me to go UP.

Also, the Tivo remote does not allow me to hit the source number. On my TV, HDMI is numbered 1, composite input is number 4, etc. My TV remote allows me to hit "1" or "4" and jump to the desired input.

Anyone know about this? Is there a way that I can set this up so that it will allow me the same functionality on the Tivo remote for this task that I am able to do with the regular remote?

Stream baby and TiVo Mini?

Sun, 03/17/2013 - 17:56
I really like my mini - Comcast on demand works, tunes live TV well, but Stream baby stream shows up in the app list, sees my network, navigates through the folders, shows the video file - I go play then it gives an error (on all and any file).

Is supposed to work? or an I just wishing?
