Hello. I'm not a newbie, but I'm stumped by this one.
Quick background; I have an S3, tried to go down the cable-card route for the channel mapping of the free HD network channels (cbs, nbc, etc) but they wanted to charge me for an entire digital cable package (they claimed they could not offer cablecards on the analog cable package). This was after I had the cards for about a month and got the first bill. So fine, I took the cards out, reran guided setup, and that's when I realized that I could run guided setup with "use digital lineup, will get cablecards later" option and the Tivo could successfully see channels 901-905 which were the free broadcast HD channels (nbc, cbs, etc).
Now for the current situation. I just bought an HD unit, upgraded the HDD from stock, and have been trying to get it setup to replace an older S2 unit in the bedroom. I'm working to copy over shows, etc. I have it hooked up in the family room next to my S3 unit, both hooked up to a 2-way coax splitter (5-2400MHz). Coming into the house is also another of the exact same splitter. Anyway, I have rerun GUided Setup several times to tell the TivoHD "use digital lineup, will get cablecard later" but I cannot tune channels 901-905 when it's complete. At this point I'm scared to try and re-run it on the S3 "just to see what happens" in case I loose the channels there too.
To be clear; these are cable-TV rebroadcasts of OTA unencrypted digital channels that I'm talking about. I'm not trying to steal cable or anything else.
So what's going on? Why could I re-run guided setup on the S3 after the cablecards were removed and still see the 901-905 channels, but when I rerun guided setup on the HD I cannot?
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!
I think I have found why I am having some issues with TiVo Desktop, the registry settings are missing.
Someone gave me the registry settings for a Windows 7 64 bit machine,
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ Run section of the registry, with
C:\Program Files (x86)\TiVo\Desktop\TiVoTransfer.exe
From the same section, the TivoNotify service starts with
C:\Program Files (x86)\TiVo\Desktop\TiVoNotify.exe /service /registry /auto:TivoNotify
the TivoServer service with
C:\Program Files (x86)\TiVo\Desktop\TiVoServer.exe /service /registry /auto:TivoServer
and the TranscodingService service with
C:\Program Files (x86)\TiVo\Desktop\Plus\TranscodingService.exe
I was wondering if someone on here might understand the registry some and be able to let me know the Key Names, Types, Values?
On the chance that this thread generates some interest............!

OH HELL NO.
Someone better tell me right now that Tyrion isn't dead or I'm going to lose my mind.
Of course he's not dead. They wouldn't do that. Would they? Would they? I'm freaking out right now!!!
"The Tivo Stream requires you to already have a Tivo Premiere Q box, a home gateway version of the Premiere, and TiVo service at $15 a month, or you can buy the Stream box for a one-off fee of $500."
I'm guessing they are confusing the premiere lifetime cost with the Stream device? Because $500 would be way outa line.
Good story for TiVo the company...
After updating to 6.4a, I no longer have the network options in Setup, Settings, Phone when accessing the DTivo w/the remote control. I've used the "slicer routine from ptvupgr...com".
It doesn't show the ip or mac addresses and it doesn't give the "edit phone or network settings" option @ the "Phone Setup" page.
It can connect to the internet however as it was able to run "tweak.sh".
This clearly can not be a normal part of the slicer routine....?
Anybody else seen this happen?
Surely there must be a better way to restore this without pulling the drive and rerunning ptvnet cd.
I've been searching various forums but haven't been able to find anything on this issue.
Ever since the last update I have been getting this message from time to time on our TiVO premier. I then have to unplug the unit and allow it to reboot and the problem resolves but it happens at least twice a month. Is anyone else having this problem? Any idea why its happening or how to get it to stop?
Seem like SyFy channel is F**k up, both Lost Girl and Eureka will not record when a season pass is set up. On the TiVo each episode has to be selected manually. On the SA box you cant even do that. Anyone know what is going on here?
Well I'm dumping Directv can't see myself paying $100 a month anymore. I do have a question I have to return the access cards can I still watch the shows recorded on the tivos? or do they have to have access cards to watch anything that's recorded on them.
This story is cracking me up
"Sons" creator Kurt Sutter -- aimed at the stars of "The Devils Ride" ... a Discovery Channel reality show about the Laffing Devils motorcycle club in San Diego.
Sutter's tweet read, "Watched Devils Ride. Probably get in trouble for saying this, but I'm pretty sure my SOA actors could kick the sh*t out of this 'real' MC."
Obviously, the Devils weren't happy about the statement.
TMZ spoke with a guy named Sandman -- a very scary member of the club -- who tells us, "I am concerned that Kurt's creative mind is stuck in make-believe land with his recent comment on twitter."
Sandman adds, "Here's a reality check for ya Kurt ... I am sending a personal invitation to your pretty faced Kurt Cobain look-alike star Jax to come down to San Diego and prove your point."
Yes, Sandman just challenged Charlie Hunnam to a fight.
And he ain't done yet ... Sandman continues, "And tell him to wear those shiny white kicks too. I hope he's a size 11, I could use some new shoes."
So Sutter says something rude on Twitter and this Sandman guy feels the need to insult and challenge Charlie (aka Jax) to a fight? WTF.
I just bought a series 2 TiVo at a garage sale.I was hoping to just use it as a DVR,I'm finding out I can't without a sub.I'm just learning about TiVo and the lifetime sub.I want to find out more about my TiVo.I should mention that it was new in the box,plastic still on it,any help would be appreciated.I should mention I do not want to do a subscription and do not have a phone line.
When I turned on my TV this morning and hit the TiVo button, I got a pop up message about now having the new release. I read through the message then selected the delete option. But instead of deleting it, it left it in the messages. I had to go into the messages screen to really delete it. Nothing like the very first thing you encounter in the new release being a bug - very confidence inspiring :-).
I recently upgraded TiVo units and am offering my TiVo TCD648250B (250 GB) Series3 HD with a lifetime subscription for $330.
This device is particularly useful if you've decided to "cut the cord" and drop either cable or satellite and get your programming via the Internet and free over-the-air broadcast signals.
It is in great working condition and comes with a brand new, never used remote control (not the original), composite A/V cable, HDMI cable, telephone cord and power cord. It works with cable (cable cards must be provided by your cable operator) and over-the-air TV signal, but does not work with satellite.
A factory reset was performed to bring all settings back to new. It comes with a fully transferable Lifetime Subscription service at no extra cost to buyer.
Shipping to contiguous US is additional $25.00 via UPS or USPS priority mail. Local pick-up in the Cleveland, Ohio-area is also available at no charge.
I'll be happy to e-mail pictures of the unit to any interested buyers, just PM me.
I recently installed my first Tivo in years (Tivo Premier XL) in order to drop my $175 a month Direct TV. With all the great OTA reception I'm getting, combined with Hulu/Netflix, I'm very impressed.
I downloaded the Iphone app today - and it is absolutely awesome! I particularly like the way you can launch directly into an episode of a show on Hulu right from the app (i.e. "get from" hulu sends you right to that episode on Hulu).
However, when I try the "get from" option for netflix, instead of sending me directly to that show/episode (which it says it is doing in the App), it launches the main netflix app and just sits at the main screen.
Is there a setting I am missing, or is this a problem with the netflix app?
Just got the update and already frustrated with the controls and lack of info on what they are now. But the main one is when in a video and you want to back out and get back to the netflix menus, how do you do it?? All i can figure out is to hit the clear or Tivo button to exit Netflix entirely!
Youtube, well thats another story entirely!!
I went through the channel lest and unchecked all of the channels that I didn't want on my channel guide when I set up the THR22, don't need to see the game channels, Spanish, porno and OTH channels that I don't receive etc, but now they are showing up in my guide!
WTH? Now my guide it polluted with all the channels I don't want to see. IT was fine yesterday, neatly groomed so I would only see the channels that I want to view. The channels are still unchecked in the channel list.
I am recording a lot of programs today, so can't restart the THR22 now, will have to wait until Monday to try.
Anyone else have this happen?
I have restarted the tivo, added the ip address of the computer to tivo. Restarted computer. Clicked on the apply button in pytivo but my tivo no-longer shows pytivo under
showcases and apps. How do I fix this?
I just got my first TiVo ever off eBay, thats right Im a complete newbie, and while I wait for it to ship I have a few questions for you experts.
Model #: tcd746320
45 hour DVR
1) Does this TiVo stream from online sites? (Hulu+, Netflix, Etc.)
2) Is this TiVo able to stream video files from a PC? If yes, is there a SMALL distro of linux that is compatible with tivo to do this? I want to be able to have a dedicated server to keep all my dvd backups on so I can just browse through them on my tivo and play them with a single interface.
I want to use a server and not have to physically have them on the tivo .
3) The tivo I bought says it has 2 tuners, am I able to connect a Cable Card for my cable AND an antenna for over the air channels? or will I have to constantly unhook my cable and hook up my antenna?
4) Does the tivo work as a digital converter box for my antenna?
5) Am I able to put the recordings my tivo records onto a flash drive and transfer them anywhere?
6) Does it have a normal RCA input to record anything else? (xbox, a dvd player, etc)
Thats all I need for now, I've been reading up trying to gather as much info about tivo as possible. I see that they are pretty open to modifications to tivo so if you know any cool hacks / tricks I can do to this let me know!
I have been using the TiVo App for my IPad and IPhone for most of the last year with no problem. Today I Started the app and it told me I needed to enable the network Remote Control. I followed the instructions to do this and it turned out the TiVo was already set....so why does it keep telling me on the iPad and phone that it needs to be enabled. I tried everything I can think of, and it just won't let me past the menu to enable the Network Remote Control.
