Browse TV & Movies entries missing

Mon, 10/08/2012 - 18:15
Notice that the new 'YouTube' option now shows up under the 'Find TV, Movies & Videos' menu, but now all entries usually listed under 'Browse TV & Movies' are no longer displayed. I have tried reconnecting to the Tivo service and rebooting the unit several times to no avail. Is anyone else experiencing this anomoly?

Cablecard, Time Warner & NFL channel

Mon, 10/08/2012 - 17:25
Two weeks ago Time Warner finally added the NFL Network. I cannot make it work on either TV through Tivo. Both boxes have cable cards and they tell me it's not their problem.

Anyone had issues with this?

I've restarted both boxes; done the programming from ground zero and still nothing. I'm hesitant to pull out the cable cards - they were installed by TW.

I've been waiting years for this channel and nothing.

I'm also sick of the cable card losing sound frequently. Seems we need a better alternative.

Comcast On-Demand Problems

Mon, 10/08/2012 - 15:48
I have a Premier 4 that is a few weeks old and I have just now started to really get the time to watch some shows from Comcast On Demand. The problem is, about 80% of the time, I get some sort of error saying to try again or contact Comcast and I cannot access the show that I am trying to watch even though it is from a channel that I have access to. There is no consistency as to specific channels or shows. Usually it does not work but sometimes it does. Naturally, I contacted Comcast about his three times and all 3 times I was given the run around and told that the M card is provisioned correctly and that it must be a problem with the TiVo. If anyone has any information on this issue, or has had a similar problem and found a solution, please post back. I remember reading a thread a while back about people having their On Demand not work at all and a Comcast rep here on the forum fixing the issue, but I cannot find the thread and my issue isn't the same as it works sporadically.

Comcast Xfinity On Demand for Tivo expanded?

Mon, 10/08/2012 - 15:01
Hey All
Got an e-mail this morning from Tivo saying that Xfinity On Demand was now available! Am in Olympia, WA. It's not showing up yet, but checked the Tivo web site, and it looks like it has launched in Western Washington, Portland, OR, all of Colorado, parts of Kansas City, and a number of other areas. Is anyone else seeing this yet?

Homeland S2E02 "Beirut Is Back." OAD 2012/10/07 ***spoilers***

Mon, 10/08/2012 - 10:17
Wow, wow, wow!

Color me as sucked in.

I was on the edge of my couch as Carrie was running from the gunshots.

I'm currently listening to to "No Easy Day" about the UBL(sic) kill. We gotta believe the writers did, too.

The Red One and Red Two scenario is pretty much how he describes it, although they didn't have different missions for the two teams. The SEALs do drop in with small teams and get out intact. They had instructions that it was not to be an assassination "if he's naked and unarmed."

BUT he does say that the briefing rooms are radio shielded faraday cages so even if you did smuggle in a phone or transmitter, it wouldn't work. So much for Brody's warning.

They also mirrored how the SEALs gathered all of the computers, notebooks CDs and thumb drives from UBL's house in what the CIA said was an intelligence bonanza.

Some WTFs: How did Carrie color her dyed brunett hair back to blonde so fast? That wasn't a wig, it was hair dye. Even a guy knows you have to die it back and you don't get the black roots and highlights from a bottle. Besides, didn't she enter the country as a brunette with that hair color and picture on her passport?

Why didn't Carrie's escort Major go with her?

She also should have covered ALL of her hair to go to the mosque. Notice that the other women had no hair showing.

Most importantly the end. Saul has the Brody confession. WTF: Why would it be with a Hesbolah guy in Beruit? Wouldn't Abu Nazzir have had an agent in DC pick it up and get it to him?

Speculation: Spoiler: Now we gotta guess for dramatic purposes that Saul is either the mole or for whatever reason doesn't turn over the SD. In the previews we have "He knows the real story" and Brody kills somebody in a bloody attack and buries him in a ditch. Gotta be Saul who hasn't told anybody. How Saul could have been the mole while giving the green light to the hit is a mystery.

Amazing Race : 10/7/2012

Mon, 10/08/2012 - 07:49
The twins impressed me this week. I think they would get under my skin if I had to be around them for long, but they do have a great attitude and work ethic and they seem to be smart. I hope they go far in the race.

Too bad about Amy and Daniel. Another good team screwed by a bad cab driver.

I like the show so far this season - off to a good start!

30 Rock | "The Beginning of the End" | 10-04-2012

Mon, 10/08/2012 - 07:27

When "TGS" returns from hiatus, Liz (Fey) is alarmed by Jack's shockingly bad fall programming line-up. Meanwhile, Jenna (Krakowski) prepares to be the ultimate bridezilla, enlisting a reluctant Liz to be her maid of honor, and Kenneth (Jack McBrayer) and Hazel (Kristen Schaal) invite Tracy (Tracy Morgan) to a dinner party.


some good laughs.

like the "tanking nbc" premise for the final season, which should make for some absurd story lines.

VM "TVAnywhere" Discussion Thread

Mon, 10/08/2012 - 04:47
With the imminent release of the VM TVAnywhere App and Web Portal I thought we may as well have a single thread in which to discuss it.

From what I have seen of it so far in reports on the web, it certainly looks like it's going to be almost brilliant.

Though I wasn't in on the alpha or beta testing, I am going to be one of the lucky ones who will get their hands on the released version a little early and I will be blogging about my experience with it for anyone interested.

My iPhone
Wife's iPhone
my iPad
Apple TV
my Macbook Pro
wife's Macbook Pro
streaming radio in my bathroom
4 airport expresses connected to speakers around the house
Roku box
Mac mini in my TV cabinet

How about your homes?

DirecTV HR34 or THR22 reliability/buginess vs. TiVo HD?

Mon, 10/08/2012 - 00:04
So, I'm totally satisfied w/the reliability of my TiVo HD (other than the stock hard drive going bad/getting corrupted once). The stock drive's no longer in use.

I've been a TiVo user since 2001 (Series 1s, Series 2 DTiVo for 5 years, and a Series 2 SA for a bit, besides my TiVo HD).

I got sucked into going (back) to D* via some reps at Best Buy but the install hasn't happened yet, so I can back out. I'd be going w/the HR34, mainly for more disk space, On Demand and lower monthly fee (than the THR22).

Would I be disappointed w/the reliability and buginess of the HR34 vs. what I'm used to? Serious bugs and problems requiring reboots to resolve on TiVo HD (and my prior units) are almost unheard of. Same goes w/missed recordings.

http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=209109 re: the latest software release for the HR34 gives me pause.

Any satisfied TiVo users make the leap to the HR34 or THR22? Bad idea?

I am bummed that I will no longer be back to transfer shows to my PC to archive them. I use kmttg for that and a someone time consuming workflow to archive to AVCHD right now.

I still need to run some numbers to see if it's worth the savings of ditching Comcrap and going back to D*.

Hell on Wheels 10/7/12 "Blood Moon/Blood Moon Rising"

Sun, 10/07/2012 - 22:49

Holy crap.

I can't believe they killed Lily. I knew when they killed Mr Toole and fatally wounded the Swede well before the battle that the battle was going to be bloody, but I really didn't see that coming.

And the Swede, he's really just a big ol' bald Norski Injun-wannabe Rasputin, isn't he? He'll be back, even if he was fatally wounded, tied up, and dropped off a railroad bridge into a river.

Should be an interesting shift in dynamics next season!

CBS Houston Monday night lineup pre-empted for MNF

Sun, 10/07/2012 - 17:54
Texans play on MNF this Monday (Oct 8). CBS Monday night lineup is being preempted.

It looks like the 7pm sitcoms (HIMYM & Partners) are being shown later that Monday night (Tues super early AM), and the 8pm sitcoms (2BG & MikeMolly) are being shown the next night. I don't watch H50, so I can't help there.

My TiVo did catch the changes, but wanted to give y'all a heads up just in case...

Go Texans! Kick some NYJets bootie! :up:

MOCA help/input needed Central FL Brighthouse network

Sun, 10/07/2012 - 17:17
I need some help trying to figure out my home network using MOCA and Tivo Premier XL4 with Brighthouse tuning adapter.

i have a par of Netgear MCAB1001 MOCA adapters. i was able to set those up and they are working fine. so my home network is supporting the MOCA, they are working in default settings, no problems.

i enabled MOCA on my Premier XL4 which is connected to a Brighthouse Tuning adapter. the Tivo box cannot find a MOCA connection.

does anyone know if the tuning adapter is the problem or is there more to the MOCA settings that i haven't figured out?

i live in Orlando, anyone local dealt with this issue? i am trying to set up Tivo Stream and i need the Tivo factory ethernet port for the Stream to work.

any and all input is appreciated. i am not super techy, but i can mess up stuff pretty easily.... ;)

Premiere Elite XL4 and 30 Second Skip Feature

Sun, 10/07/2012 - 17:09
The new Elite now offers the 30 second scan feature but it not as quick as the old 30 second skip feature whcih you used to be able to program in yourself. I tried to program in the old 30 second skip feature using the old Select-Play-Select-3-0-Select code while watching a pre recorded show but that no longer works because when you hit Select it brings up the reduced guide at the bottom of screen. Anyone know a work-around on this or another way to program in the old 30 second skip since the scan feature for me is way too slow.

Another great episode.
Glad to see the plot moving along. This did not drag.
ROOTs quest continues. Nice little plot twist near the end.
Don't know why more people aren't talking about this show?
I try to get people at work to watch it, just to have someone to talk to about it.
No luck.
One guy started in the middle of the season and couldn't get into it. :(

iPad app can't find compatible devices..help!

Sun, 10/07/2012 - 16:08
I am tryIng to set up moca and stream....please help me!!
1. With my N adapters, I was able to use the TiVo app on iPad no problem
2. I moca'ed my house...it's awesome
3. Added TiVo stream

Now, I cannot even find compatible devices to even get on the app. It wants me to sign on as away device. This is so annoying!

I have cycled everything, network remote is "on", deleted and put app back on, made sure settings in my account are proper, called and wasted many many minutes with TiVo support.

Advice please.

No signal live, okay for recording

Sun, 10/07/2012 - 15:07
I have a most vexing problem. I have a TiVo Premiere (2 tuner) with a M card installed. It has been working fine, but we had all manners of cable issues today. At one point my 2.5 Mbps down was running at .29. I hadn't been getting any live TV on one tuner but was on a second due I think to the TiVo recording on the other channel.

It is looking like recording is working fine and that will result in video display on that channel but there is no live TV. I have restarted my TiVo. Where should I go from there?

Why is The Simpson's Treehouse of Horror on so early?

Sun, 10/07/2012 - 14:59
I'm glad because I hated when they showed it after Halloween, but I wonder why they're showing it so early this year tonight. I hope it doesn't suck.
