Pause bug in the Fall update

Wed, 11/14/2012 - 21:26
I'm seeing a bug on my Elite when watching Live TV. If I am behind the current time and fast-forward up to current time and hit Pause just at the right time, the TiVo will show the progress bar as paused, but live TV will just continue right on playing.

If I then press Play, it jumps back to the point where it should actually be paused at and plays from there.

Tonight I had a few minutes so I played with it to see if I could repeat this, and I found that I could do it almost repeatedly using the following steps:

Go back in time any amount of time.
Fast-forward and let it go all the way to the end of the live buffer.
Wait until the progress bar switches to the single green play triangle icon.
At that instant, press Pause.
If you get the timing just right, the TiVo will show as paused but continue to play.

I can do this over and over now. Luckily, I know the simple workaround is to wait just a bit longer before pressing Pause, but it was very annoying the first several times it happened.

NCIS - "Shell Shock, Part 1" - 11/13/12

Wed, 11/14/2012 - 20:23
My TiVo, or cable, cut out in the middle and I lost 20 minutes or so - minus commercials...
I'm totally asking for spoilers. :)

Who is Randall Kersey? Was he on a video at the store? Where'd they get the video? Did the alley stuff really happen?

I saw the tattoo guy, and the wife,
Captain Westcott's brother shows up
Westcott and Gibbs are looking at a still from the video, they talk, Gibbs is so smart! "Face the fear." :)
'I'm wondering where they got that video? It was much clearer than VHS.'
Therapy all around... Cute pic!
'What's this IJI? And who is Kersey?'
They go to Kersey's house.
'Oh! He's bad!'
Then credits.

It was the weirdest thing! Never any pixelation or stutters - played normally all through - then I was still so confused, and saw that I only had 40 minutes recorded. Weird!

Can anyone help fill in the blank? Thanks!

Survivor: Philippines - 11/14/12

Wed, 11/14/2012 - 20:16
Good for Skupin. I'm really tired of Abi and hope they can pull Lisa in next week and split the vote 3-3 for Abi and Pete to flush out her idol. If Lisa really can't break from her original tribe that has treated her like crap then it makes sense to vote her out next but i hope it doesn't come to that.

Black Friday?

Wed, 11/14/2012 - 19:54
Does Tivo do any sales on black friday usually? I am ready to upgrade tivo's and have been holding off for the tivo mini, but that doesn't seem to be happening soon.. so now just hoping for some kind of sale

Football Description - What Language is This

Wed, 11/14/2012 - 18:59
I was going through the upcoming football games on my TiVo. The description for this one seems a bit unusual. Anyone have a guess as to what's up with it. I can surmise what it is saying, but it's not English or Spanish.

"Matchen spelas pa Metlife Stadium." (I couldn't even find the special character for the "a."

Edit: Found it. å for på

Wireless Networking Causes XL 4 to Reboot

Wed, 11/14/2012 - 18:27
Here is a case in which wireless networking causes TiVo XL 4 to reboot during the "transfer program" feature.
Specifically, programs are on a S-3, to be transfered to XL 4, via wireless bridge.

After selecting a program on a Series 3 to be transferred to a XL 4.
The XL 4 reboots.
Also noted: on the S-3 I could select programs on the XL 4 to be transferred; but they would not complete.

Problem started:
After, swapping a time warner supplied cable modem, for a new Zoom Model 5350 Cable Modem w/4 port router and "N" wireless.
The "5350" was default configured, except to set primary network ssid, and enable WEP encryption and set the password.

Troubleshooting results:
With limited info supplied on Zoom cd and online, I was not comfortable with changing settings I knew little about. So, I turned off the built in wireless in the Zoom. Re connected the original stand alone wireless router. (Original wireless router is connected to Zoom cable modem router output.)

Programs can now be transfered to XL 4 and no reboot, and from XL 4 to the S-3.

If anyone can help with wireless setup for the Zoom. I would be willing to give it another go. Their user manual leaves a lot to be desired...

Otherwise, the Zoom will be replaced with a Motorola SB6141 modem.
The SB6141 modem will connect to old wireless router (that is working.)

TIVO Noise Reduction + Routing its output to another room

Wed, 11/14/2012 - 17:55
So I have a tivo premiere right now in my bedroom and have noticed its pretty loud. I was searching around for noise reduction methods and noticed a few people say its not even in there rooms, they simply route the output all around the house so it doesn't matter where the box is.

That sounds awesome! Can someone explain to me how to do that or link me?


P4 + Life = $650 after discount - Deal or no Deal?

Wed, 11/14/2012 - 15:44
I'm not totally jumping up and down about this deal, however adding 3 years service here for $40 is way better than risking 3rd party sales - and you can't buy that outside of Tivo.

We would like to upgrade our standard Premiere with Life to 4 tuners. Just not sure when to do it.

Also - they don't seem to publish actual HDD specs.
Is the Premiere standard 45HD Hour HDD any bigger than the one in the 4 tuner P4?
It doesn't make a ton of difference - we usually record and delete right away - and if it gets too full, transfer shows over and move into iTunes to watch on AppleTV3 at our leisure.

Problem With Streaming ... error

Wed, 11/14/2012 - 13:20
I get this error message a lot "Getting more of the show. Please wait a moment, then press PLAY".

When I use the HuluPlus and Netflix apps through Tivo Premiere, I usually do not have a problem with streaming.

I use PlayOn and PyTivo for most of my viewing.

Anyone got any idea how I can determine which software in the loop is causing this??


record 2 area-codes?

Wed, 11/14/2012 - 13:11
I am located in Southern California and can pull in stations from both San Diego and Los Angeles. But is there a way to program my Premiere for both areas? Currently I only have it setup for San Diego (because those stations are strongest) but my wife wants me to add a second antenna aimed at LA so that we can pick up the additional channels there.

I think I would have to buy a second Premiere and 'aim' it only at LA, but then we get into switching between different tuner/DVRs -- which has poor WAF.

Receiving slingbox feed

Wed, 11/14/2012 - 12:35
I have a TiVo premiere connected to the Internet. Is there away to log into a slingbox account and view the slingbox feed on my Tv, through my TiVo? The TiVo premiere obviously picks up specific websites, such as Netflix,etc. but there is no actual browser. thanks.

Phantom Live TV /guide commands interrupting playback

Wed, 11/14/2012 - 12:17
I have Charter cable with two cable cards and a tuning adapter. It works pretty well a majority of the time. I've been having an intermittent problem that has gotten worse the past few days.

Basically, I'll be watching a recording with nothing currently being recorded on the TiVo, and suddenly it looks like I'm repeatedly hitting the guide and live TV button over and over again. The guide will pop up and then shortly thereafter my program will be interrupted and it will go to live TV. It will then flash the guide and then the progress par over and over in sequence.

When this happens, my place in the recording is lost and it starts from the beginning when I go back to it.

Sometimes it will happen rapidly and other times slowly. When it happens slowly, I can sometimes prevent it from interrupting playback by hitting clear repeatedly.

Going to other menus doesn't make a difference - it's not really an issue that only occurs in playback, but it is the most annoying there since it causes my place in the show to be lost.

Rebooting the TiVo doesn't always help. Same for the tuning adapter. In fact, the symptoms continue if I actually unplug the tuning adapter.

I am using a harmony 880 remote and have watched carefully and actually attempted to block it to see if it is coming from the remote. It doesn't seem to be.

So far it doesn't seem to have interrupted any recordings. Probably because the behavior would seemingly result in simply switching to the show being recorded.

What can I do to troubleshoot this odd behavior?

TiVo Series 3 TCD648250B With LIFETIME & Upgraded to 150 Hours (eBay)

Wed, 11/14/2012 - 10:49
I am selling a Series 3 (OLED Screen) with lifetime on eBay, that I upgraded a few years back (1 TB Drive). Works great, but recently purchased a Premiere, and it killed me to see it just sit there. It includes the power cord, glow remote and wireless adapter (I finally hard wired my house).

I only have a reserve on it because I am shipping it for free, so I don't want to loose my shorts on shipping.

Check it out and let me know if there are any questions.


Mankind - The Story of All of US

Wed, 11/14/2012 - 10:26
Anyone watching on History? I saw an internet ad and thought it premiered yesterday but it was about the Iron Age. I guess it is in reruns. Watched about half an hour before going to bed. Didn't like Brolin's narration much but will set up a season pass.


Wed, 11/14/2012 - 09:29
I have a SD-DVR40 and it is stuck in the powering up mode. I believe this means it has a bad hard drive. Can I replace the 40GB HD with an 80GB HD and will it take a fresh hard drive off the shelf or do I need to do more to the drive?

S3 Tivo, Comcast, No HD

Wed, 11/14/2012 - 09:20
I am using Comcast cable in Florida with a Tivo S3. I also have Comcast cable boxes in bedrooms. One channel, SNY, channel 785, shows in HD on TVs with comcast boxes but not on TV with Tivo. Could it be a problem with the cable cards? They were installed in April of 2010.

I haven't called Comcast yet. I am hoping to avoid that because it is always such a dreadful experience.

Thanks for any help.

Sons of Anarchy - "Crucified" - OAD 12/13/12

Wed, 11/14/2012 - 08:24
"Sons live, Redwood bleeds". I love Otto. Otherwise kind of a bleh episode for me. I guess I expected more since it was an expanded episode. The whole "we have to find evidence against Clay" thing is being dragged out way too long. Isn't killing Piney enough to get a bullet to the head?

Oh and Maggie Siff is horrible.

3 left.

Boycott Tivo-Tebow

Wed, 11/14/2012 - 07:56
This is disgusting. Apparently Tivo is courting the Jocks for Jesus demographic. I will not buy another Tivo unless they dump this side-line kneeler who wants to shove his religion in everybody's face.

I guess some idiot in the marketing department thought Tivo-Tebow sounded cute. No, it's offensive to anyone who believes in freedom of and from religion.

Tebow is the kind of self-righteous hypocrite Jesus himself denounced. Tebow should stay in his closet and pray in secret as Jesus commanded. Instead he does Lord, I thank thee that I am not as other men - I'm a superjock with a commercial endorsement.

Tivo has become the Chick-Fil-A of consumer electronics.
