Holly and Joshua are called to the center of the stage
Joshua - Safe
Holly - Bottom 3
Elise and Skylar to center stage
Elise - Bottom 3
Skylar - Safe
Colton, Phillip and Jessica to center stage.
Jessica - Safe
Phillip and Colton - Neither has been in the bottom 3 and the one in the bottom three this time is:
Elise is single out and after the usual fake out is told she is safe.
That leaves Holly and Colton. And the person eliminated from the competition is
-I wondered in the performance thread if this was the week Phillip or Colton landed in the bottom 3. I was right about that but I never expected one of them to actually be voted off.
-This is a huge boon to Phillip. If there is an army of teenage girls out there voting he is no longer splitting votes with Colton.
- I had a feeling Jessica would be safe after almost being eliminated. Those who get saved seem to ride that save for a week or two.
- Jimmy and I are in complete agreement on Elise. She needs to be rocking out and building on the audience that loved her Led Zepplin performance.
- I still don't understand the love for Joshua
- I imagine Ninny is banging her head against a wall knowing she has to watch Hollie again next week. But I think Hollie earned it last night.
- I think Jimmy might be on to one of the issues with Jessica. She is only 16 but both Hollie and Skylar (both 18) have more youthful enthusiasm.
- I honestly believe Skylar is the front runner now.
And once again - fricken' Hollie dodges a bullet.
WHY CAN'T SHE JUST GO AWAY!!!
Oh well, at least she wears cute outfits and tonight was no exception. She can't sing great, but she does have good fashion sense.
As for Colton, I have been meh about him all season, and he really stank it up last night, so it wasn't shocking. I really am surprised that Elise didn't go home, but she is much better than Colton IMO.
I think now that Colton is gone, all his votes will swing to Phillip. He is almost guaranteed a spot in the final. It will be interesting to see who will be standing next to him...
Want to watch your HBO subscription on DirecTV over HDMI? Good luck with that. Without any proactive customer outreach, DirecTV rolled out a misguided anti-piracy update last week that now requires an encrypted connection between the set-top and television to view HBO. In theory only very old HDTVs lack this 'HDMI Copy Protection' (HDCP). However, DirecTV's implementation appears flaky as some newer, capable sets are also impacted and no longer able to display HBO over HDMI. DirecTV's response to customers: switch to component cables.
Or cancel DirecTV and get the shows for free.
I have a couple of questions someone might be able to explain. First after installing the new Tivo day before yesterday I found that there are times that the Tivo peanut remote sort of just doesn't work. Some or all the buttons do not respond. Sometimes hitting some other button reawakens it and other times I need to go to the Tivo itself and push a button (which I haven't had to do since I was a kid and had a tv with a rotary tuner). Although I am not planning on using this remote in the future, if it is defective I should get a new one before warranty is up.
The other one is I have updated my Harmony One for this Tivo and have noticed that the commands provided by Logitech aren't all there, and I have found a couple of them that don't work such as the Activate. I know I can 'learn' the remote but was wondering if others ran into that also?
Thread rename request for Happy Hour
Some people want the images and videos to be in separate threads.
Rename the "Images that make you giggle a little." thread as
"Images that make you giggle or say WTF"
Rename the "Videos that make you say WTF" thread as
"Videos that make you giggle or say WTF"
This works better than just beginning new threads. It keeps the history of each thread and it also stops people from posting in both the new threads and the old threads.
when I press Tivo button and select button simultaneously the amber light that lights up on all my other Tivo remote to tell me I'm in learning mode never lights up. It lights up when I press buttons but just won't go into learning mode. Any advice?
I am one of the lucky users who is in one of the right locations in the SF Bay and now have Xfinity on Demand on my Premiere Elite!
It worked very well last week ... for a couple of days, until Saturday.
Since Saturday (4/14), I can still access Xfinity on Demand, browse the shows / movies, see which are free or for a charge, and select one.
But when I select "Watch now", I am getting a black screen and, a few seconds later, an error message saying I should try disconnecting and reconnecting the cable, and if that does not work, I should contact Comcast with error number: SRM-8001.
I did the cable disconnect / reconnect - did not help.
I restarted the tivo box a few times - did not help.
I called Comcast, who had no idea what I was talking about (told me Tivo does not support on demand ...).
I have a Comcast tech coming over on Saturday, but am wondering if he'll be able to help ... wondering if the issue is on the tivo end or comcast end...
Frustrating, as it was working beautifully until Saturday....
I was just setting up new Comcast service for my Mom and Dad in New Hampshire when I was told by the rep they won't be able to use their Tivo in just a few months, it will no longer be compatible with Comcast. Has this been out there, he said he just got this today, or is he just selling me on the Comcast DVR?
He said they are starting this in the Northeast, doesn't sound good for us Tivo users.
What do you all know about this.
I am 95% over the air so it won't bother me too much but I know it will a lot of you.
OK, They got me. Didn't expect Scott to be her dad! Nor was I expecting the wheel chair! I loved when he got all "I'm the adult here" right before being pushed into traffic.

Last Wednesday I purchased a Premiere to replace my Series 3 box from a private seller; unopened box. After setting everything up, including installing my CableCARD, transferring all content and Season Pass from the old box, everything was running well. Easy Breezy. Loved my new Premiere and its iPad companion. Thursday afternoon I sold my Series 3 with Lifetime, as I no longer had any use for it.
Then Friday afternoon I'd noticed I wasn't receiving some of my subscribed HD channels. I made a phone call to Verizon to have them add the channels to the card. After a reboot, the Premiere went into the dreaded startup loop. Then soon after, the green screen of death. I then went online and researched the issue. After many hours and a phone call to TiVo, we determined the hard drive had failed. This was less than two days up and running.
TiVo issued an RMA and hit me for a temporary charge of $108 to ship me out another box the same day. Meanwhile, I transferred the content from my Series 3 to my Mac, as I hadn't yet boxed and shipped it to its new owner.
I received the new Premiere yesterday. One week to the day that I'd purchased the first one. Upon its arrival, I opened the box and got started with the setup. Things seemed to be going well, but after the setup process the UI wasn't in HD, and there was no option to switch to it in Settings.
I made another call to TiVo and was initially told that I was using old software even though Settings showed I was on 20.2.0a. After many attempts at correcting the issue, I was told that my box hadn't received many required packet(?) updates, or something along those lines. It was going to be a day or so before I was to receive them because there were some known issues TiVo was having at the time. Ok. Fine. I could wait some more, if this was in fact an issue.
While on the phone with TiVo customer support, I had rebooted the box and consequently lost access to the CableCARD. We had no idea how this occurred. Now not only was I not able to use the HD UI or use any of TiVo's on demand services (the box was telling me I wasn't connected to the internet, though I was) but now I wasn't receiving any channels. This same box was broadcasting my channels just moments before, prior to the reboot.
The CSR told me that the card had to be paired and that a call to Verizon would be necessary. I called Verizon and was told the card was paired and looked fine on their end. I called TiVo back and explained. They said Verizon was wrong and suggested I call Verizon back. I did. Same story. By this time, I'm pretty much siding with Verizon on this issue, because TiVo'd been failing me big time. Who, in their right mind, would think that it may not be the box?
After calling TiVo again, it was suggested that we call Verizon together. We were on hold waiting for the CableCARD department to pick up, when I was told by the TiVo CSR that he couldn't wait any longer; their policy was to only hold with cable companies for a maximum of 5 minutes.
It was now just passed 7 o'clock. TiVo support was closing for the day. I had placed my first call to TiVo at 2:30. This fruitless process took nearly 5 hours and I was still without TV. I'd also had to stay home to receive the delivery from UPS, so I hand't left the house all day.
I called TiVo first thing this morning, requested a return, and cancelled service. I've been a TiVo subscriber since 09 and have suggested the service to others, but I was not going to spend another 5 minutes setting up yet another TiVo box. I will not be having another Premiere shipped and I no longer own the Series 3. It's back to the horrible Verizon box. At least it works. This was an awful and unfortunate experience I felt like sharing. Better luck to you.
I get no signal when hooking up my Tivo HD via HDMI cables. It worked in the past but since moving the unit to a different room the hdmi port is not working, I have tried different cables and no luck. If I wiggle the cable the pictures appears for a second.
Is there a DYI to replace the HDMI connector? If so where do I get the part.
If I need to send it out how much might it cost and wheer are some places that do the repair because I wish to keep the lifetime service I have on it.
Hi guys, looking for some help.
The 1 TB hard drive on my Tivo HD XL has burned out (TCD65800).
I cannot get it to be seen by winMFS or any other tools (not spinning), so I think I have to start fresh.
I picked up a 2 TB WD green drive and I have a forum .tbk image for the TCD65800.
Can anyone recommend a specific procedure for getting that image onto the new 2TB drive and any tips for optimizing?
I't not clear to me how to use winMFS to do this, if at all possible.
Is there some other way or tool to get that drive prepared?
All of my PCs are Win7 and I have admin rights.
Thx for your help!
I have to say to me at least it was one of the funniest episodes I've ever seen. The narrator's gravely voice slowly and accurately recounting what was going on in Cartman's stomach was insane. And of course the dramatization on the boat ... wow.
I am still laughing at the Magical Helicrapter, 7-turdy-7, and Poo-Choo Express ...
I know he's "only" a celebrity, but being a child of the 60's/70's, having a household that loved music and dance, and having the television be my babysitter for prime American Bandstand years, I am truly saddened by the death of Dick Clark.
Watching the various clips, artists, Dick's expressions, tone and introductions just put me right back there.....
He, and American Bandstand were truly, not only a backdrop to my life, but also part of it and a foundation for loving and living a life filled with music.
I've posted before, on this thread about possible availability of episodes of AB from late 50's through the 60's and early 70's. Most of you thought they didn't keep episodes, but that some clips were available.
Does anyone have any news or updates on possible availability of AB episodes (early ones)?
I'd like to re-live my youth...somewhat.....and watch them.
I was following notes from my old post
to manually upgrade my HR10-250 from 6.3e to 6.4a with the DVRUpgrade slices from here
. I double-checked that installSw.itcl had reboot changed to exit, but I must have been looking at or running the wrong one, because it decided to reboot anyway.
So, my TiVo restarted and it did boot to the main menu, but I hadn't swapped kernels (with dd from hda6 to hda3), I hadn't copied over any of my hack directories or rc.sysinit.author and I had not made any of the tivoapp patches. So, I've lost all my hacks and telnet on the booting system.
I hooked the drive up to a PC and booted the MFSLive CD. The first thing I tried was to switch the bootpage back to the old working system (root=/dev/hda7 ...) and tried to power on, but the power on message just stayed on screen for a long time without moving to the next boot screen.
So, I took the drive out and looked at it with MFSLive. I made dd backups of each kernel /dev/hda6 and /dev/hda3, then copied 6 over 3. I was going to try to manually copy all my hack folders from /dev/hda7 to /dev/hda4, but looking at the /dev/hda7 files and folders, I noticed many of the files are missing or not visible (even with ls -a). For example the old /busybox is empty. Most of the old folders and subfolders are there, like /enhancements, but the files seem to be missing.
I wonder if the files are possibly still there, but just not visible to MFSLive? Would starting up with the bootpage pointing to the old root /dev/hda7 have caused the files to be deleted?
What is the best way to proceed? The current state of things is that an unpatched 6.4a system is on /dev/hda4 with the hacked kernel on /dev/hda3. Telnet is not working, so I have the drive connected to a PC with MFSLive.
Can I rollback and get my 6.3e system working on /dev/hda7 again (even though switching the bootpage back didn't work)? Then I would be able to telnet in and could try to copy all my hack folders over and patch the 6.4a system on /dev/hda4 from the old system with telnet.
Or would it be possible to use MFSLive or another CD to run Superpatch on the 6.4a system on /dev/hda and get telnet working from scratch?
I'd like to keep all my recordings if possible.
Please let me know the best way to proceed without getting into more trouble.
