"Unable to Connect to Netflix"

Sun, 08/12/2012 - 19:51
I have a Premiere. Since Friday, I haven't been able to connect to Netflix. The red Netflix page shows briefly, and then an error message appears saying that it's unable to connect to Netflix, to try again, or to go to Netflix's website for help.



It had worked for years, and nothing about my internet service or home network has changed. I can watch YouTube and Hulu videos on TiVo, but not Netlix. Also, the Netflix service is working at home on other devices. Just not on TiVo.



I spoke three times with Netflix yesterday, troubleshooting. I did the same with TiVo today, calling three times and going through every conceivable troubleshooting option that they could think of. Hot reboots, cold reboots, changing settings, checking my network, trying to de-authorize the TiVo, connecting the TiVo directly to my modem (thus, bypassing any router), and more. One rep. actually suggested that I try using the TiVo from a different location, meaning I either have to move or ask a friend if I can install and watch my Netflix account via my TiVo from their home. I didn't try that.



As of today, the status is that someone from TiVo will be calling me within the next 72 hours. So apparently I must stay home from work for the next three days and wait for them to call.

Any user experience on this issue would be appreciated. Everything that both TiVo and Netflix suggested has not worked.

Tnt Hd season pass problems

Sun, 08/12/2012 - 17:27
Hi ya,

Anyone having problems with Tnt on the thr22 with the seasons passess. I have 4 shows as season passes. Rizzoli and Isles, Franklin and Bash, Falling Skies, Perception and it keeps removing the season pass to do recordings. When I go to the "view recording history" It says this about all the recordings "This program will not be recorded because its channel has been removed from your lineup.". Tnt is still in the channel line up and has never been removed.

I have tried everything. Deleting the season pass and re-doing it. restarting unit. After I have redone the seasons passes within several hour or by the next day, it removes all the seasons passes to do recordings with the above message.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Ed

SSD cache for Tivo - anyone speak Chinese?

Sun, 08/12/2012 - 15:36
I would love to get my hands on a WareMax HybridCache - it's a transparent SSD cache for a SATA hard drive. It goes between the hard drive and the Tivo: http://vr-zone.com/articles/waremax-...ing/12554.html

It looks like it's the closest thing to the old cache card from the Series 1 Tivo's. Talking more about it here: http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb...t=cache&page=2

Look towards the bottom of page 2...

Anyway, in all the googling, all I see for apparent end users having this product are forums in what I can only assume is Chinese - since I'm only an English speaker. Apparently they did ship in Taiwan, but I haven't seen any mention/sighting of them outside of Taiwan. Probably squished by a patent or some other BS :p If anyone can read the forums - are there any clues as to what happened to it? Or even cost - if it was more than a couple hundred bucks I wouldn't bother. But I suspect they were shooting for under $100.

Premier 4

From Engadget:

TiVo Premiere 4 confirmed early, promises a 4-tuner DVR for the masses
By Jon Fingas
Aug 9, 2012 10:51AM


TiVo owners who've wanted to record any more than two shows at a time or use more recent technology like MoCA have had to look towards the wallet-busting Premiere XL4, at least if they didn't happen to rely on a cable provider bundling the Premiere Q. Thankfully, TiVo has told Zatz Not Funny that a more affordable Premiere 4 option is on the way. The new DVR will still require QAM digital cable or FiOS TV for its tuners to sing, but its 500GB of space will likely lead to a significant price cut versus the 2TB-touting XL4 -- if also a whole lot of deleted old shows. MoCA, an eSATA port and a single CableCARD slot will carry over, so there's few other penalties in store for those who pass on the XL4 flagship. We don't have any official word on the launch strategy so far, although one loose-lipped rep has floated the rumor of a release within the next one to two months at $250 price tag. If true, the Premiere 4 will go a long way towards satisfying TV junkies who are more concerned about catching every show in a crowded prime time slot (and a lower cost) than digging through months-old archives.

delete - keep until suggestion

Sun, 08/12/2012 - 10:55
I didn't realize that 'delete' and 'keep until' were two separate lines and mistakenly deleted a half-watched movie, which also rapidly disappeared from 'recently deleted'. I wasn't paying enough attention and made the mistake because when I highlighted the 'delete' line I saw a 'right arrow' and I assumed that meant there were options. Instead, selecting the arrow deleted. I think it would be nice if that little arrow were not displayed.

Messages - delete all at once?

Sun, 08/12/2012 - 10:43
At least once a week I select some programs online to be recorded. I've configured to not get an email confirmation. I do get messages that the programs have been recorded, or not. I can see from the first screen what has and hasn't been successful. After exploring the failures, I'd like to be able to bulk delete all the messages - now it seems I have to open each in order to delete it.

Value Question?

Sun, 08/12/2012 - 10:33
I have a S3 TCD648250B with a new 1TB drive upgrade and PLS running like a champ. But I really need to upgrade to a Tivo S4 4 tuner. What is the value of my S3?

What is "Now Playing on HP"?

Sun, 08/12/2012 - 10:33
On my TiVo menu is a "Now Playing on HP" line. If I select this, there's nothing playing. I'm guessing HP is my desktop computer. Is this where I might see something I'd purchased, like from Netflix or Amazon?

Or something streaming?

How would I test this with a free selection?

I have a wireless home network and Comcast cable for internet, but the TiVo itself is hard-wired, modem and router, not wireless.

Managing YouTube from my computer works pretty well

Sun, 08/12/2012 - 10:08
After reading all the discouragements here about TiVo and YouTube, I have settled on a few work-arounds.

I manage YouTube from my computer, selecting subscriptions, playlists, ... I clear the lists online as soon as I've watched the program, before adding anything else, have learned that since I've set it to display newest first that if I add a series or sequence I should add it backwards, learned to clear subscriptions on my computer and add what I want to see to Favorites.

Now the TiVo displayed navigating arrows work, yes slowly, but they do work, sometimes I get the choice to vote an item up or down (the last one in the queue I think). TiVo/YouTube wants to sequentially play everything in the Favorites list, so keeping the list cleared of all items I'm finished with is working.

As well, it's taken me a while to negotiate YouTube on line, and I've got this working adequately. I wouldn't have even known where to start if it hadn't been for all the help and complaints here.

Thanks,

Sylvia

not telling TiVo all the channels I receive?

Sun, 08/12/2012 - 09:53
TiVo asks me what channels I receive. If I do not select a channel that I do receive, I'm assuming that TiVo won't look there for suggestions. (For instance excluding the children's channels, or the shopping channels, ... )

Can I still access that channel from TiVo, live TV ... ?

TiVo premiere with slingbox solo

Sun, 08/12/2012 - 07:23
Can't find this and TiVo support won't verify this for me. Best buy is having a sale on the sling box solo and I want to connect it to my TiVo. I currently am using hdmi cables and do not want to change to composit. I was wondering if I could use both RCA and hdmi at the same time.

I'll only use hdmi with tv and RCA with streaming to my phone/iPad. Does this work?

Thank you!

Kickstart is unresponsive

Sat, 08/11/2012 - 21:57
Our TiVo (HD -- TCD652160) restarted yesterday and got stuck on the Welcome! Powering up... boot screen. It never gets beyond that.

Over the past 24 hours, I've immersed myself in the collective Internet knowledge, trying to figure out how to diagnose my problem. Finally, I found the Kickstart codes over at weaknees (sorry, I'm a noob and can't post the link...).

My suspicion was the disk, so I tried code 54 to get into the SMART diagnostics. The problem is that I get the amber and red LEDs when I press the remote's pause, and after entering the code the LEDs turn off, but then nothing happens. Nothing. Still the same boot screen.

I figure that either the disk drive is so broken that the TiVo OS isn't getting loaded, or (since I suspect the Kickstart codes are contained in the boot ROM) the CPU is fried.

There's no serial connection on my box, so I can't get into the console terminal in any way I can figure out. Is there a serial connector inside the box?

I fear my only hope is to send the TiVo in for service, but would like to attempt to revive it on my own. Any ideas?

THR22-11 Needs Phone or Network

Sat, 08/11/2012 - 21:47
We originally ordered the Tivo HD DVR from DirecTV. When the installers arrived they told us we had to have a phone line to get our local channels.

Based on the "experts" info we went with the HD DVR and hated it. This was half right.

After emails and calls to DirecTV to see if this is true we were told it was not. But again only half right. They told us we did not need a phone line or network connection.

You do need the unit to be able to do it DVR calls via a phone line OR network connection.

Ironic thing is after my initial connection direct thru my router I connected the unit remotely with the DirecTV Cinema Connection Kit and our WiFi network.

Experts....Yah Right
