How the States Got Their Shapes

Thu, 10/04/2012 - 13:01
This show has been moved to H2 from History Channel. I conclude this because, while the new episodes do appear on HC, they are delayed, are at odd times, and show up as reruns according to TiVo. The H2 episodes are at standard times (8 & 8:30 Eastern/7 & 7:30 C&M on Saturday) and show up as new.

New episodes have been broadcast as of 9/29/12, but you can still catch them if you record tonight.

EW Article: When is it okay to reveal a spoiler?

Thu, 10/04/2012 - 10:18
Interesting article discussing when it is okay to reveal a spoiler.

http://insidetv.ew.com/2012/10/03/sp...le+Feedfetcher

It mentions Kurt Sutter of SOA releasing a spoiler while speaking about an actor's death in real life:

Quote: The Sutter post was an extreme case. I couldn’t imagine writing the headline “Sons of Anarchy Creator Reacts to Actor’s Death — Spoiler Alert!” That would be tacky, to say the least. I could have noted the spoiler was coming in the story’s body text and perhaps should have — it just wasn’t on my mind given the seriousness of the context. Discuss!

Problem with the Find Programs->Tivo Suggestions menu

Thu, 10/04/2012 - 10:18
I have a brand new TiVo Premiere XL4. When I go to the Find Programs->TiVo suggestions menu the menu items, show name, day and date are jumping around the screen. Anyone old enough, it looks like the vertical hold is shot and its rolling really fast. It's just the menu, the area around the menu including the TiVo icon are fine.

It started out that I could go to the menu and it was fine but when I scrolled up or down the bad behavior started. Now the bad behavior is in place when I go to the menu. I can select an item, which item seems to be up in the air and the program info is displayed fine. I go back to the menu and it's still messed up.

When I first got the system the menu seemed fine but then I had a little adventure. Because my privacy status is opt-out I started out with the standard def menus. I changed, temporarily, to opt-default so I could try the HD menus. Hated them, but that again is another story. Went back standard def menus and opt-out. When I went back to SD menus is when the bad behavior started. I suspect, and this is a wild guess, that TiVo HD menus left a bit of cruft on my system when I turned it off.

Has anyone seen this kind of behavior? Any suggestions for fixing it. With a new TiVo I tend to use this menu a lot to thumb things up and down to get the system up to speed on what I like. I've tried forcing a reconnect to TiVo and restarting the system. I've restarted the system a number of times in fact after trying a series of increasingly unlike fixes all which have not worked.

Thank you.

I think getting rid of Angie was the right move, but Russell is really not very good at challenges either.

Xfinity Xbox360 OnDemand app with cable cards only

Thu, 10/04/2012 - 08:06
I currently have Comcast TV service with two TiVo Premieres that have cable cards. Due to silly charges by Comcast, I wound up turning in my one and only digital box (Scientific Atlanta 2200) in order to avoid the $10/month charge Comcast was imposing. It was an SD box and I wasn't using it much anyway.

The only advantage of having it was being able to access OnDemand content (in SD), but I didn't watch much of that anyway so I just turned it in.

Well, I'm thinking of possibly getting an Xbox360 in the near future. I see that Comcast allows you to use it to access their OnDemand content. Therefore, I thought I might do this and gain back access to OnDemand.

I am also aware that an XBox live gold subscription of some kind is needed. I have seen it offered for as low as about $4/month so it might be worth getting.

A few questions though. Will the OnDemand material through the Xbox360 be in HD? Also, I have been informed on another forum that at least one digital box is needed in order to use the Xfinity OnDemand app on an Xbox360. However, Comcast's own site states that a "Comcast set top box or Cable Card" is needed. I am subscribed to an eligible TV package too (Comcast "preferred") so can anybody verify if I can have just my 2 cable cards and still be able to use the Xbox360 to access OnDemand material?

Here is what the Comcast FAQ page stats about it:

http://xbox.comcast.net/faqs.html

(2nd question down)
Q: Do I need the Comcast set top box connected to the TV along with the Xbox 360?
A: No, the Xbox 360 running our XFINITY TV App essentially acts as an additional cable box for your existing cable service, but you must subscribe to XFINITY TV with On Demand, which means that you will have a Comcast set top box or Cable Card connected to at least one TV in your home.


Now, it is also debatable & questionable when they say "you must subscribe to XFINITY TV with On Demand". Technically, this isn't done with my cable cards. Or does that simply mean I have to be in an eligible TV package (which I am) even if I don't truly get it at home and/or currently have the needed hardware? Not sure.

Ultimately, I'd love to just see the Xfinity OnDemand feature come to my Premieres for my area (Atlanta) like they are SLOWLY coming out in other markets, but who knows when that will actually happen.

How do Premieres stream to each other?

Thu, 10/04/2012 - 07:53
I just added an XL4 to my network so I can now stream between my XL and XL4. While setting up the XL4, I had an interesting discussion with the Brighthouse reps helping with the Tuning Adapter/Cable Card install. When they heard I'd be streaming between the two, they insisted that I needed a filter on the coax leading to my house so that the streaming wouldn't go out to the neighborhood. I explained that my understanding was that the streaming was done via my ethernet network, but they insisted it was done through the coax.

Given that I see increased network traffic when I'm streaming, I'm pretty certain they're wrong, but thought I'd check here.

Desired Feature: Season Passes

Thu, 10/04/2012 - 07:33
I didn't see a thread yet for desired features for the Stream. I'd love to be able to set up "season passes," so that I could automatically download specific shows to my iPhone as soon as they record. I move the same 2 shows every morning onto my iPhone, it would be nice to automate the task and wake up in the morning with the shows already on my phone.

CableCard bent pin, no CableCARD menus problem

Thu, 10/04/2012 - 03:46
Short version: Missing channels on my Tivo HD so Comcast switched my 2 S-Cards to 1 M-Card. CableCARD menus don't work and can get basic cable channels only. Figured out that the Comcast Tech bent a pin in CableCARD slot 1. After unbent, reactivated with comcast, everything (CableCARD menus + all channels) working for 5 min, then back to basic cable only and can't access CableCARD menus.

What should I try next? Would Tivo be helpful in this situation? Why would the card work for 5 minutes then stop?

Long version:
- Got Tivo HD with lifetime years ago. Comcast was out of Mcards so they gave me two S-cards. Been working since then until:

- 9/29/12: subscribed to Showtime on Comcast's site in the morning. Wasn't getting it by that evening so called in. They said it would take more time.
- Another day passes and still not getting it, I notice more channels that I used to have are missing. they schedule a truck roll.

- 10/3/12: Tech arrives, checks signal levels (good), blames cablecard being old tech, especially the S-Cards. Didn't bring any Mcards despite my specific request during scheduling to make sure the tech had one. He goes and rummages around his truck and finds one. Kinda scuffed up so who knows what the source or condition was. Puts it into Slot 1, calls activation. Can't activate because when we try to go into the CableCARD menu, it says: "Your cable provider has no supplied any information for this card." He inserts firmly and ejects and repeats many times to no avail. Tech advises me to go exchange the card at Comcast office and leaves.

- I go exchange the card and put new one in. Can access the CableCARD menu, call into activation line, give them all the numbers, they send the activation signal. Can get basic cable channels but nothing above that, like ESPN, etc. Still no Showtime. A few minutes later, I can't access the CableCARD menu anymore. Phone people say that it takes a while for the card to download info so wait an hour.

- Four hours later it isn't working, call back in, they send activation signals, still nothing. They schedule appointment for Friday for CableCard expert bringing 5 Mcards.

- I decide to eject the card and try it in Slot 2. Gives me the Error 161-1 (or something like that). Switch it back to Slot 1 and notice its very hard to insert during the last portion of travel. It had been like that each time but I wasn't paying attention.

- Shining flashlight into the slot, I could see that a pin is bent. Looking in from the front of the Tivo HD, it is the bottom right corner pin. It's been squished over so it's touching the next pin over on the bottom row. Must have been bent while the tech did multiple ejects and reinsertions in the morning.

- I disassemble Tivo and straighten the pin out as much as I can. Try slowly inserting the card and it feels smooth going in. Take it back out and the pin looks mostly straight now. Reassemble and plug it all back in.

- CableCARD menu now works. I can go through all those diagnostic and config screens now. Get onto Comcast chat and they resend the activation signal. ALL CHANNELS WORK! Even showtime! Thank them, cancel appointment, have them notate the bent pin on my account.

- 5 minutes later, Showtime goes black. CableCARD menu goes back to: "Your cable provider has no supplied any information for this card." Channels back to basic cable.

Fifth Gear: Velocity Channel premiere 10/3/2012 (possible season discussion)

Wed, 10/03/2012 - 23:57
For those of us (including me) who complained that the US version of Top Gear doesn't have enough fast cars, well Velocity (the channel formerly known as Discovery HD Theater) appears to have heard us. They brought Fifth Gear to our shores.

For those not aware, this is actually a continuation of the original TG:UK when it was cancelled in 2001, before it was reborn the next year under Jeremy Clarkson. Original hosts Tiff Needell, and Vicky Butler-Henderson, both race car drivers, came over from the original Top Gear and are still with the series 10 years later.

Except for one, the other current hosts also have racing backgrounds: Jason Plato and Ben Collins, whom TG:UK fans would remember as the man the BBC was trying to stop from identifying himself as the second "Stig." Only host Jonny Smith doesn't have a racing background. Ben Collins was not in this premiere episode however.

The show came to the US once before via Speed Channel. Tiff and Vicky were joined by a couple of other hosts who are no longer with the show. Speaking of The Stig, another Stig was featured in the Velocity Channel premiere episode: rally legend Stig Blomqvist, who was showing the proper way to drive an Audi A1 Quattro around a frozen lake.

Personally, I've always liked Fifth Gear, even during its Speed Channel run. I thought the chemistry between the hosts was better than Adam Carolla's The Car Show and certainly better than TG:USA. The presenters certainly have a lot more street cred than the hosts of those two shows.

Like Jeremy Clarkson, Tiff Needell can come off as a bit arrogant, but not nearly over the top as Jeremy. Vicky Butler-Henderson I think does a good job of keeping his ego in check. The others are new since the Speed Channel airing of the series so I don't have a real opinion of them yet.

Oh and for the fast cars: this episode's main topic was a showdown between several exotic convertibles including the Mercedes SLS convertible.

Hart of Dixie Season 2

Wed, 10/03/2012 - 20:49
I enjoyed the first season of this show. Glad to see it back.

I'm glad Lemon and George broke up. I don't really care if Zoe and George get together, actually I like Zoe and Wade together. Lemon working at the bar could be fun.

I'm glad Ruby is sticking around. She and Levon are good together.

changed providers

Wed, 10/03/2012 - 19:38
We recently changed from DirecTV to Dish as our provider. Our den TV is old and only has the coax input. The DirecTV receiver connected to the coax input of the TIVO and the TIVO used the coax out to run to the TV. The DirecTV coax output was on channel 73 and somehow we were able to tell the TIVO to look at channel 73 on the coax for the input. Now that we have the Dish receiver its coax output is on channel 60. How do I tell the TIVO to look at channel 60 of the coax? If I go to the "Video Hookup" section in the settings, it tells me to use the red, white, yellow direct hookup between the Dish receiver and the TIVO and it won't allow me to select the coax connection. I can't use the red, white, yellow direct connection in the den because the Dish system has just one receiver that feeds both TV sets. The Dish receiver is in the bedroom (with another TIVO) so only a coax cable runs down to the den TV from the receiver in the bedroom. I need the den TIVO to allow me to select the coax connection between the receiver and TIVO and to look for the input feed on channel 60. The den TIVO is a Series 2 TCD140060. Help!

Series 2/lifetime 140060

Wed, 10/03/2012 - 19:35
with an upgraded Weaknees drive (I THINK 160G). I also upgraded the fans: The original fan made way too much noise for a bedroom.

http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb...d.php?t=493620

I recently verified that it still works, at least to the extent of booting up, authenticating to the network, updating the software and doing a reset.

This unit is destined for Goodwill or other such disposition unless someone can convince me otherwise. Unfortunately, I don't have the time to craft an eBay auction, monitor it, deal with vetting the purchaser, etc.

At any rate, I'm posting this here in the event someone is interested, since this is a venue of enthusiasts. Thanks.

Actual disk size in XL4?

Wed, 10/03/2012 - 15:05
Something weird with the display on the TiVo XL4 that I noticed. The display on "My Shows" says that my disk is 36% full.

However, third party app shows the total space used by all of the programs currently on the TiVo is 1867 GB (~1.8TB). So how can a 2TB drive be 36% full if it already has 1.8 TB of data on it? What is TiVo reporting when they give the percent full?

Just curious. I keep expecting the meter to suddenly climb to 100% with the next program it records, or to give an error saying it has run out of space unexpectedly.

Songbox Solo for Auction

search not finding programs

Wed, 10/03/2012 - 13:14
Every once in a while, a program that I KNOW exists isn't found in search. For example, I wanted to record the presidential debate, so I searched for it, and "Presidential Debate" came up as a program option. But when I chose it, it said there are no programs available to record. Huh? Obviously there are. I was able to set up a manual recording (called "Presidential Debate" and available on numerous channels). But even then, when I went back to the search results under "Presidential Debate," it said no programs are available to record. (At the same time, it showed a check mark and said my program will record, which makes no sense.)

What is going on? Obviously the program is in my guide data since it came up while browsing time/channel. Why doesn't it come up in search?

This has happened, occiasionally, with other programs. Not just special news events, either -- there was some network show I had to do a manual recording for when it didn't show up in search.
