The Amazing Race - "Like James Bond Again" - 3/3/12

Mon, 03/04/2013 - 10:57
I am having a hard time getting into these teams this season. No one is really that exciting, although I do know that the Youtube hosts annoy me greatly, to steal Special Agent Shepherd's line.

I think something was lost in translation with the dad there... I believe that he maybe had a small tear in the muscle and tendon, but I still don't believe that if it was fully torn/ruptured that he would have been limping around the beach like he'd just twisted his ankle or something. I've seen people in other sports after they tear their Achilles... their foot is usually not working like it should. They can't flex/point/move it at all.

TCD2004A and TCD24008A

Mon, 03/04/2013 - 10:29
I was wondering if I could transfer a (larger) hard drive from my Tivo TCD24004A to a Tivo TCD24008A unit ?

Thanks in advance.

Streamed shows stuck in Deleted Shows?

Mon, 03/04/2013 - 10:29
Wondering if anyone else has seen this - I was irritated to find some recordings got deleted yesterday to make room for a long HD recording I scheduled. The irritation was because prior to scheduling it, I checked and verified that there was well over enough space in my deleted recordings folder to accommodate the new show.

Well, trying to figure out why this happened, I looked in the folder and lo and behold there were hours of HD recordings there that had NOT been permanently deleted to make room. Instead TiVo deleted recordings in My Shows that I hadn't watched yet.

When I tried to permanently delete them manually, they refused to budge. I guess that's why the "live" recordings had to go.

I would have just chalked this up to "one of those odd TiVo things" (OTOTT), but then I realized the common denominator - all the shows that were stuck in Deleted Shows and couldn't be removed had been watched and deleted from my iPad! Streamed, not downloaded. Other shows that were chronologically between the stuck shows but had not been watched with the TiVo app got deleted automatically without a problem.

I could, BTW, recover the shows, or re-delete them, but couldn't permanently remove them. A reboot fixed it, but what gives? Thought someone should know about this, since I couldn't find it mentioned anywhere.

This was on an original Premiere.

The Americans S1E5 COMINT OAD 2/27/13

Mon, 03/04/2013 - 10:19
Being a female spy is some nasty sex work! When the contact was whipping Elizabeth and she became a helpless, cowering, pleading victim, I was like "WTF, she could beat the crap out of this guy". Then I realized she was playing it that way because it was the smart thing to do. Very cool.

Nina rinsing her mouth out with the tea - excellent touch by the writers that really made me feel disgusted right along with her.

John Boy really screwed up an opportunity with the codes.

Red Widow OAD 3/3/13 S1 eps 1 and 2 Pilot, The Contact

Mon, 03/04/2013 - 09:58
Haven't decided if I'm going to keep watching this. From the previews (at least the ones I saw) I did not realize it was going to be about the Russian Mob and drug smuggling. Those topics don't usually interest me. That husband sure was good looking and the actor who played him seemed to be a big enough star to be worth more than one episode. I'm sticking with it for at least one more week.

Vikings S1E1 OAD 3/3/13

I've been looking forward to this one. Kind of a GOT appetizer.

Thumbs no longer work on Pandora?

Mon, 03/04/2013 - 09:01
Has anyone else noticed that the thumbs buttons no longer work when listening to a Pandora station? How are we supposed to improve our stations? I'm hoping this is just a temporary glitch as a result of their upcoming 40 hour monthly free limit.

New Normal

Mon, 03/04/2013 - 07:39
The episode of The New Normal scheduled to be shown on 3/5/13 is a "new" episode that is not listed as new in the Zap2it guide and is not on the To Do List if you have your season pass set for new episodes only.

This episode called "Para-New-Normal Activity" was to be the Halloween-themed episode and was originally scheduled for 10/30/12. However, it was pre-empted by Hurricane Sandy coverage by NBC News.

The Walking Dead, 3/3/2013, "Clear"

Poor Morgan.

And how did Michonne get the picture?


New harddrive, stuck in boot loop

Mon, 03/04/2013 - 05:30
Does anyone have a truncated image for a TCD 652160? I noticed when copying my old hard drive to my new Seagate, there were some errors, but it did finish copying. Now it's stuck in the Powering Up loop, I can't seem to get it to accept the Kickstart codes now either. Wanted to try to force it to get new software.

The new drive is a 1Tb Seagate Barracuda.

Lost surround sound

Sun, 03/03/2013 - 22:39
So out of the blue I've seen to have lost my 5.1 from my premiere unit. I've double checked to make sure it's outputting Dolby digital, and that's all set correctly. Double checked the optical connection as well as my receiver. Right now, it looks like there is some setting on my TiVo box that is keeping it from outputting 5.1

Both recorded media as well as live content is only outputting in 2.1

Any suggestions would be appreciated as nothing sucks more than watching a great movie on HBO in 2.1


All-Star Celebrity Apprentice.

Sun, 03/03/2013 - 22:21
Didn't even know this was starting. Thank goodness for DVRs.

General thoughts.

Amarosa is a terrible person. I've heard of her but I don't think I've ever watched a season with her in it.

Trump just can't let people respond to his questions without interrupting. Is he that much of an a&$ or is it just editing? Of course, I know the answer. :cool:

Amarosa is a Terrible person.

Brett had every right to come back. Why did he have to justify his position numerous times?

Amarosa is... Ugh. :down:

Gary busey is still crazy.

I'm rooting for Penn again.

Can't wait for next week.

Once Upon a Time - S2E15 - "The Queen Is Dead" - OAD 3/3/2013

Sun, 03/03/2013 - 21:47
"Evil will always triumph, because good is dumb."

I figured Cora would just stab Johanna after Regina put the heart back. Why didn't Cora knock the dagger out of Snow's hand the same way she knocked the gun out of Charming's hand?

Why oh why would Snow and Charming have to go so nuts about finding the dagger? They didn't need to put their hands on it. Obviously, Cora and Regina had no idea where it was. Let Rumpel know they're looking for it, but have no idea where it is. As long as they don't have it, they can't do whatever.

Do you guys think that's the real dagger? What better way to keep your enemies from looking for it, than to give them a carefully crafted simulacrum!

They dropped a zillion hints that Neal is Peter Pan. Well, ok, they basically came out and nearly said it. :) So why would you leave Hook tied up in the basement? There's poison on his hook... stab him with it and you win a free boat! If Neal didn't know who he was, I could chalk it up to Inept Emma. Neal should know that Hook must die. I know, I know: not in the script!

computer keyboard problem

Sun, 03/03/2013 - 20:47
For the second time by laptop keyboard is going. Certain keys will not work. It's a Dell and I've only had it a couple of years. My former Dell did this after a short time too. Stupid of me to buy the same brand but I thought it was a fluke since I've had luck with them before.

Last time I bought a new keyboard that I inserted in to my laptop that didn't work, so Dell said it was the Motherboard and essentially I needed a new laptop, which I then bought from them...duh

So now this. I would call them but it's out of warranty and I know the drill now.

Does anyone know if those keyboard that you plug in to a USB port may work?

..and can anyone recommend a reference for finding a better laptop than Dell. I think their quality has declined on personal pcs. :confused:

Channel Name change = Redo Season passes?

Sun, 03/03/2013 - 20:03
So a channel had a name change from nicjr to nicjrP (I've seen these types of things happen from time to time).

but I notice my season pass recordings don't reference the new name...so I don't think it's going to record anything. Is it just awaiting game for my Tivo to update to the new name in the season passes? Or do I have to delete and recreate them all for that channel?

OTA in Chicago Area

Sun, 03/03/2013 - 19:59
I'm a recent convert to OTA. I live in Oak Park, a suburb of Chicago, and have a question about ABC. There are two 7-1 channels: WLSDT and WLSSTA. I assume these are two transmitters, but the weird thing is only one works at any given time. Example: the week before the Academy Awards WLSDT came in scrambled, and WLSSTA came in fine. However, the day of the Academy Awards WLSDT was suddenly clear and WLSSTA was scrambled. Since then it's switched back and forth two more times.

Does anyone know or have a theory as to why this is happening and, if so, how can it be fixed?

I have the antenna (a Mohu Leaf) connected to a Tivo. Since I'm in a condo complex I can't have an exterior antenna, and this one actually works very well minus this one issue. So if there is no way of resolving the signal strength issue of these two channels, and if I have a season pass with Tivo for a show on ABC, will it record both channels, or will it pick the one with the strongest signal?

Zero Hour Canceled!

Sun, 03/03/2013 - 18:48

They got me again. I figured this was pretty safe. LOST-ish, Anthony Edwards, you'd think after Top Gun, and ER, he'd be safe.

I was going to watch Red Widow, but I'm going to Tivo it and not even think of watching it until its renewed. I think if they keep this up, networks will be forced to do it Netflix-style and release an entire season. This is happening way too often

On the plus side The Americans was renewed.

Wish list recording sucks!

Sun, 03/03/2013 - 17:10
I setup a wish list to record NASCAR so I would not have to worry about what channel it was on. Well come the race today NASCAR did indeed start recording but did it record on Fox at 1080? No, it recorded on the 480i feed:(

I called TS and they said, yep that's how it works, it uses the lowest resolution feed. HOW TOTALLY STUPID!!! What idiot thinks I want to record an low res?

Maybe someone with a brain will realize that this needs to be fixd.
