Replacement XL4 -> Refurbished Elite

Wed, 05/08/2013 - 01:43
Bought a new XL4 in January. Mid March started having major pixellation on numerous HD channels, some with total signal loss. It was intermittent and would effect different channels at different times, although there was a core of channels (707,709, 710) that were always unwatchable.

Comcast (San Francisco) was out four times. Signal always tested OK. They replaced the cable from their terminal on roof to equipment, replaced the cable card. Finally connected cable that went to XL4 to old Series 3 in bedroom and the Series 3 had pixellation. Reversed connections and connected cable from bedroom Series 3 to XL4 in bedroom and it was fine. That seemed to eliminate the cable as the source of the problem. Must say that Comcast was very aggressive in trying to find the problem.

Called Tivo and they sent replacement. Arrived today and to my surprise it was a refurbished Elite. I know the Elites became the XL4 about April, 2012.

So basically I have a refurbished Tivo that is at least 1+ year old. Who knows how long it's been sitting around or why it's been sitting around so long. I actually thought I was going to get another XL4. I didn't realize they would replace with an old refurbished unit.

My question is should I be concerned? Is this normal? I will be setting up tomorrow. I sure hope it works because I don't want to go through the replacement process again.

Thanks for reading...I know I went on a bit long.

Streaming problems

Tue, 05/07/2013 - 23:27
I have problems streaming Netflix through my TiVo DVR. As many as twenty times during a film it will stop to recover the material. I thought my wireless router might be the problem, so I replaced it with a more powerful one, but no real improvement occurred. FYI, the router and the TV/TiVo are about twelve feet apart.

Any suggestions welcome.

The Cleveland Show - 5/12

Tue, 05/07/2013 - 21:00
The new episode of The Cleveland Show that was supposed to air on 5/5 but got pre-empted by the end of the rain-delayed NASCAR race will air on 5/12 at 7 PM (Eastern/Pacific). If you have an SP, you might want to make sure that the episode is set to record, as the guide probably thinks that this episode aired last week.

Note that the new episode already scheduled for 7:30 will air as well.

Voice activated searching or qwerty questions...

Tue, 05/07/2013 - 20:29
5 year TivoHD guy, just purchased the XL4 with lifetime comes in Friday (got a pretty good deal too!) and bought the last Slider remote around (Fry's, $59.99 they still have some in other states like Texas and Georgia :) BUT I'll tell you what I really want and you tell me if it's possible please :)

OK, I am also a long time Logitech Harmony guy, old school peanut style Harmony 680 & 620. One button turns everything on/off, does so much more too, completely 'smart' remote but I really like the look of the Slider and love that qwerty but I think I want to keep my harmony and explore other options for text input.

So it it possible to do voice searching through the tablet apps (my current android app) for TivoHD is pretty limited. Just acts like a remote. What i want is the ability to use the tablet or phone app to do text input onscreen? Somehow use voice searches or qwerty to the tivo premiere xl4? or is the tab app self contained in the app. It searches on the tab then if you find it, you send it to the tivo (much like online now)

I love the slider but giving up the extra Harmony functionality just for hte occasion text input seem silly.

Your thoughts are appreciated,

Need help with delete shows

Tue, 05/07/2013 - 19:34
My dad accidentally delete a bunch of shows all at the same time. He did it one by one if that makes a difference. I was able to recover some of them but when I tried to recover more I just get a blue circle and nothing happens. Same thing happens If I remote connect to TiVo and go to recently delete folder. What does this mean and can I still recover the many shows that is sitting in the recently deleted folder? Thanks

Cable Card needed for playback?

Tue, 05/07/2013 - 19:00
I have a bunch of shows recorded on my Premiere that were recorded from premium cable channels from my current cable company. I'm about to move to a place that is served by a different cable company. Will I still be able to watch my existing shows when I no longer have a card from my old company?

Settings & Messages background is live TV

Tue, 05/07/2013 - 18:22
Situation: Two (2) TiVo Premieres in one household. One has a nice blue, high contrast background when using the "Settings & Messages" menu, while the other shows live TV. Take a look at the attachment - It's a real challenge to use the Settings & Messages menu with live TV in the background.

Of the two Premieres, the solid blue background one is easier to use. Any thoughts how to make the live TV background one behave like the solid blue background one?

Revolution S01E16 - "The Love Boat"

Tue, 05/07/2013 - 14:26
Watch out for level 7 in the Tower. Some bad mojo going on there. Did Grace know that sending her jailer down would give her her freedom?

Do you think it's nano-bots?

Premier & Elite Units Losing Cable Signal

Tue, 05/07/2013 - 14:07
I have two Tivo units in service an elite 2TB and a Premier Standard which was upgraded to a 1 TB drive. On a reoccurring but infrequent basis (perhaps once a month roughly ) one or the other will seemingly stop receiving its cable feed, no error msg occurs but when you attempt to watch live TV on any channel the guide info is displayed but no audio or video signal, as a result scheduled recordings do not take place. A simple reboot of the tivo returns everything to normal. My suspicion is that this is a Cable Card Issue, wondering if others have experience this problem and if there is a fix for it..

My Cable Provider is TimeWarner..

Wireless HDMI, anyone tried it?

Tue, 05/07/2013 - 10:09
For a porch (w/in about 30ft of my XL4), I'm looking to use this Actiontec wireless HDMI device. This should enable my porch TV to watch whatever is on the XL4.

Anyone tried this?

Want Live Tv in 5 rooms - What's best way?

Tue, 05/07/2013 - 08:58
I will be moving into a house and want Live Tv and ability to watch recordings off my Elite in at least four other rooms. The rooms have coax. I have Comcast Cable.

Looked at stream - Don't like because of ios only, video quality, and no hdmi out.

Looked at mini - Don't like because it ties up Elite tuner and needs subscription.

Can I do this with additional cable card Tivo's but no added subscriptions? What can a cable card Tivo do (or not do) without a subscription? Which cable card Tivo model(s) can I use?

The Mentalist - 05/05/2013 - Red John's Rules

Tue, 05/07/2013 - 07:33
So we now have a list of seven suspects:

Bret Stiles, Gale Bertram, Robert Kirkland , Sheriff Thomas McAllister , Brett Partridge, Ray Haffner, and Reede Smith.

So how did Red John know who was on the list? I am guessing he, or an associate, broke into Jane's apartment and saw it.

I don't know how RJ knew about the girl from Jane's past though.

Loved how the revelation of the handshake (mentioned in previous episodes and confirmed in this one) is the one thing that could reveal RJ.

Bruno Heller talks about whether or not the list is accurate, and the upcoming season. He also discusses whether or not Jane could be Red John. Spoilers beware:

Upgrade TiVo Hughes DVR40 to 1T (power adapter issue)

Mon, 05/06/2013 - 22:35
I fell for the 1T upgrade from Weaknees. I am a novice at computer hardware and I have a question. They surprised me by sending a SATA to IDE Adapter which threw a slight curve in my direction as I prepare to upgrade. One of the capacitors (see below) was bent against the the other one and is slightly loose. Should I take a chance and attach the adapter or get a replacement from WK? WK emailed me said it was no problem...

They also sent a new IDE cable at first saying I could still use my orig IDE cable or the one they sent; but they say "If your kit also came with a new IDE/drive cable, then be sure to replace the TiVo's cable with the included in your kit. So guess I should use it, right? I'm confused, thought this would easier but now they are confusing me with the adapter and the new IDE cable. Any help/ideas? I've contacted them but they have limited hours and it's hard to get a response let alone a person's name.
