TivoHD - All programs moved to Recently Deleted?

Sun, 03/31/2013 - 19:51
We came home today and everything is in our Recently Deleted folder. Has this happened to anyone else? Anybody know how this is possible? We have to manually un-delete ~100 shows! :mad:

On demand doesn't seem to have it. iTunes has none of it. And Amazon doesen't have it Bbca was supposed to be showing it but two episodes of the more recent show were on instead. I missed the first showing. Anyone know how I can get this?

The Vampire Diaries "American Gothic" 3/28/2013

Sun, 03/31/2013 - 17:39
Anybody else still watching? I find myself letting a couple of days go by before watching the latest episode.

The whole vampire being able to willingly turn off her/his humanity like a switch to be really stupid. To me, that is. I could see it being a rare thing like something only a powerful witch can do but it seems like any ol' vampire can do it any ol' time. It's a plot point that makes Elena more interesting and entertaining. I guess that's a good thing since the whole VD universe revolves around her. However it seems to be making her more like Katherine while Katherine probably becomes more like the old Elena because of Elijah.

Klaus annoys the heck out of me. I hope he gets his own spinoff so he can get off this show. One of the most powerful beings on the planet spends his time pining and whining after an 18 year old airhead in some podunk town. He's so small time.

Will this drive work in my Tivo?

I have this drive sitting around, thought I'd put it in my Tivo HD.

Will it work?

Issues attempting to burn a DVD

Sun, 03/31/2013 - 15:43
I am using Roxio Creator 12 to attempt to burn edited Tivo files to DVD.

I transfer the Tivo file from my Tivo Premiere to my computer using Tivo Desktop. I edit the transferred file using Roxio Creator 12's "Edit Video - Advanced" Button. [ Roxio VideoWave ] I am able to edit the Tivo File and save the resulting work in a DMSM file.

After finishing editing I now click on the DVD button in VideoWave - this transfers my work to MyDVD which should allow me to create a DVD of the edited Tivo file.

Shortly after MyDVD starts via the process I have described so far, I get the following Error Box.

Error Box is displayed as follows:

Title of Box

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library

Message in Box

Runtime Error!

Program C:\Program Files(x86)\Roxio 12\VideoWave13.exe

- not enough space for thread data

Starting up MyDVD independently - without any video file loaded up - causes no issues. About 5 seconds after I try to load the file DMSM file I saved earlier [ edited Tivo file ] I get the same error box as I have described.

I have almost a TB of free space on my hard drive. Any thoughts to what the problem is?

Best regards,

Shark Tank - 3/29/13

Sun, 03/31/2013 - 04:56
Really enjoyed Shark Tank this week. I WANT ONE OF THOSE Stop Drop thingies, and was surprised at Robert and Damon's reactions saying that they couldn't see the need for one. Was glad that they got a deal.

And wow, that young girl was impressive! By far one of the best presenters ever on this show!

Using Premiere with Stream, Baby, Stream

Sun, 03/31/2013 - 01:30
I'm trying to use Stream, Baby, Stream with my premiere.

I can do so quite easily with my Windows laptop.
I have not been able to do so with my Linux server.

I'm 99% sure the issue is with my network configuration, which is more complicated than usual.

I have the following devices connected together in series:
  • a phone jack
  • an ADSL2 modem (in bridge mode)
  • a hub
  • a wireless router
  • the premiere
The laptop is connected to the wireless router.
The Linux server is connected to the hub.

My dsl service comes with several static IP addresses. The wireless router and the Linux server have static IP addresses. The laptop and the premiere do not, but instead use DHCP with the wireless router.

The premier can see Stream, Baby, Stream on the laptop, but not the Linux server. I assume that's because the premier is sending out some sort of broadcast request for "showcases" that the router is forwarding to the laptop (inside its local network) but not to the server (outside its local network).

Can anyone explain the problem to me, and even better, provide a solution?



Inside Pixar on Bloomberg

Sun, 03/31/2013 - 01:15
No, it's not on CNBC. :D It's been rerun a few more times.

I recorded it recently and am only have halfway thru it.

I glanced at http://www.bloomberg.com/video/insid...D1VNWEEYA.html and it looks like what was aired.

Premier not updating

Sat, 03/30/2013 - 21:33
Got a message today that my Premier has not updated in 10 days. I manually told it to connect which it did, downloaded the file, and started to load the data into my machine. It gets to 7% and stops. I only have 3 days of program information left. Any suggestions? I am getting ready to restart the machine, I hope that fixes it.


Bates Motel S01E02

Sat, 03/30/2013 - 21:08
Interesting episode. The other son is interesting. He is obviously going to start trouble. I think he likes Norma as well as Norman (if you catch my drift) but is angry about it and jealous of Norman.

Again we get Norma showing her body to Norman and get to see his reaction. It is all very weird.

So Emma was able to type in pictograms for translation? Not buying it. I'm guessing it was too much hassle to explain, so they just glossed over it.

The cops and the town "taking care of things" is a little dark. I wonder how long before they protect Norma instead of prosecuting her.

I do like how we have all of these unexplained things. Makes me want to continue watching. I find it interesting how the set designer uses all of these things that are old, kind of a throw back to the original movie. The school teacher wears Peter Pan collars and cardigans. She looks like she stepped out of the fifties. Norman was watching black and white TV, the record player was a seriously old system. I didn't recognize the song, but I bet it was appropriately old.

Doctor Who S07E06 "The Bells of Saint John" 3/30/13

Good start to the second half, but I'm not thrilled with the villain of this arc.

I was concerned briefly that Clara was going to die in every single episode.

TiVo Mini and the "black" screen on Main (Premiere 4) TV

Wed, 03/27/2013 - 15:28
I am having a problem since I got my Mini installed. Here is my setup:

1 - Living Room - TiVo Premiere 4 - Connected to the router via ethernet
2 - Bedroom - TiVo Mini - Connected to internet via MoCA

I noticed that I get the "black" screen often in my main tv when I select a channel. I then go channel down or up a couple of times and then the channel shows up.

I called my cable company, and had one of their cable card technicians come over. He spent two hours in my house. Everything was fine from Cox part, signal in my house, tuning adapter and cable card. He was getting 89 signal strength across the board.

He mentioned that the problems comes from TiVo Mini since the Premiere 4 thinks that a tuner is busy because of Mini.

Have you heard anything about this? Anybody experiences this? I am seriously thinking of returning my Mini and canceling the subscription, since this is driving me crazy. I have also missed a scheduled recording twice now, because of this problem.

Thank you in advance!

CBS renews a whole bunch of shows

Wed, 03/27/2013 - 15:04

I think the Mentalist was the only one that was really on the bubble but it looks like they'll get to extend the Red John story another season.
The Good Wife didn't have exceptional ratings but it's close to syndication numbers so that was pretty much expected.

Skipping on HD

Wed, 03/27/2013 - 10:08
Hey guys I am a new Tivo user as of yesterday...We decided to trade in our two cable boxes for an XL4 and Mini, the Tivo rep at my work(Best Buy) has been hounding me to buy Tivo so I finally caved...

Here is my issue, I have the mini setup in the bedroom and it will display the Tivo display and SD channels perfectly fine. When I switch to HD its like the TV is displaying 5 FPS instead of 60FPS and no audio or very broken audio.

Now my HT and networking knowledge would tell me all the info is not getting to my TV. How do I remedy this, it is happening with both Ethernet and MoCa the ethernet is coming out of a piece of Sonos equipment which I have never had bandwidth issues with in the past.

Is MoCa not as reliable or as fast as Cat5e or Cat6? Do I need to drop a home run into my bedroom?

Quick layout for an idea....Fios comes into my attic and hits a splitter that goes down into bedroom and living room which are right next to each other. Then another two lines run to my sisters laundry room in her Apt.

The ethernet line is running from the Airport extreme in the laundry room to behind my HT system where it goes into a Monster 10/100 switch and runs out to various devices including the XL4.

Do I need to upgrade the switch? I am not a networking guy I know HT so I am at a loss.

Smash - "The Bells and Whistles" - S2E08 - 3/26/2013

Wed, 03/27/2013 - 09:40
I wrote a whole paragraph and then realized I didn't really know how I felt about this episode. :) Two incredible songs (Sam's number and the Hit List 'journey' number), but the rollercoaster of "love this character, now hate this character, now love them again" is exhausting. Jimmy as a ******bag is annoying, and it's been annoying for weeeeeeks. I can't believe Jeremy Jordan didn't bitch and moan about how much everyone would hate his character.

I can't decide if I want to see Ivy's mother return or not. I think it's going to be a pretty lengthy story arc. :/

What's the hold up with XFINITY OD?

Wed, 03/27/2013 - 09:34
Seems like the XOD roll-out is on pause. I don't think the list of cities on TiVo.com has been updated for 2 or 3 months. I'm selfishly interested in Atlanta :D and curious as to what the hold up is...

Tivo deletes programs - claims lack of space

Tue, 03/26/2013 - 23:40
All of a sudden in the past couple weeks, my Premiere has started deleting shows due to a supposed lack of space, yet I consistently have greater than 50% space available.

I've even deleted ALL of my saved programs to see if that would fix it (apparently, a completely empty tivo = 17% full), but it still will delete a new show within ~24-48 hours of recording it, and the "History" menu says it did it for lack of space.

FYI, I have no season passes set as KUID, and my ToDo list doesn't look any different than it has in the years I've owned this Tivo. This is a new problem that's started recently.

I'm currently trying the Clear Program Info/Guide Data option to see if that does anything
