The Big Bang Theory "The Extract Obliteration" OAD 11/1/2012

Lots of good zingers in this episode.

And the bit with the chess clock was priceless.

Stream Survey

Thu, 11/01/2012 - 21:55
Took a survey from TiVo today with regards to the Stream. Some of the questions asked were would I be interested in watching Stream shows on other devices such as Roku, Apple TV, PC's and game consoles. Some other questions were about streaming and downloading unprotected shows outside of the network. One that I really hope comes to fruition is downloading protected shows to a device. They made sure to state that if protected shows were downloaded to a device, it would be deleted from the TiVo.

Hopefully better things are coming for The Stream

666 Park Avenue set destroyed in hurricane Sandy

Quote: It could be three weeks before the destruction is repaired. In the meantime, producers of the supernatural drama are considering remote filming or relocating to Cine Magic's SoHo studio.

Nashview 10-31-12

Thu, 11/01/2012 - 14:08
Only comment I'll make is I'm glad I stuck with the show, as I do not like country & western. Last night's show IMO was the best one so far this season, with all the different plots and turns taking place.

"Luther" starts shooting 4-episode Season 3 this month

All four episodes will be "perfectly dark, chillingly formed".

No ETA on when season 3 will air.

Replacing mainboard in HDVR2, but preserve content?

Thu, 11/01/2012 - 12:01
My HDVR2 has gone belly up and I've isolated the problem to the main circuit board. I have a spare unit that I could swap the mainboard from. My question is, if I changed out just the mainboard, keeping the keycard, would the recorded contents of the hard drive be accessible, or is the hard drive content inextricably keyed to the mainboard?

Hard Drives known to work in the Premiere

How about we make a sticky with a current list of Hard Drives that are known to work as upgrades in Tivo Premiere units?

TH22 Season Pass Manager NOT RELIABLE

Thu, 11/01/2012 - 10:57
I know others have posted similar issues. But, wanted to post my own thread.

We have TWO DirecTV Tivo's. BOTH are having a difficult time recording season passes for common shows like Modern Family, Glee and Raising Hope. I've spoken to DirecTv, they wanted to replace these with their new HR34 POS.

Any thoughts on how I might fix this? I've removed the shows from the season manager, and then re-added them (with a reboot between).

We're very close to walking away from DirecTV and just investing in two Tivo's and over the air HD. DirecTv seriously sucks worse than cable providers now.

Sons Of Anarchy "Ablation" 10/30/2012

Thu, 11/01/2012 - 07:19
I almost threw my shoe at the tv when Bobby said that they have to bring proof of Clay's shenanigans to the table and then decide what to do with him. Here's what they should do - shoot him. NOW! Now, Jax is basically forcing his mother to be a whore to get criminal pillow talk from Clay. That's being a good son. I'm pretty sure that Clay will get suspicious and either kill Gemma or force her into some other ridiculous plot twist.

Nero, you're crazy. Run as fast as you can from Gemma. I wonder how he's going to take it when Gemma goes back to Clay. Since Clay is aparently unkillable, I assume Nero probably won't make it to next season.

Tara, stop clocking people with your broken hand but if you're going to do it, you should have punched Gemma in the face 4 or 5 times. I still maintain that Tara is the dumbest woman on tv.

I wonder if Clay said "A black guy did it" as an excuse every time he got in trouble as a kid.

Juice is the un-gangsterest motorcycle gang member I've ever seen on tv. I've noticed that he's no longer seems to be the club's super computer hacker. Unser's the go-to guy now for police intel. That seems more realistic.

Survivor: Phillippines 10/31/2012

Thu, 11/01/2012 - 06:51
Well I am sad that RC is gone. I will miss her bikinis and her strength. I would have been much much happier if she could have held on to win immunity and perhaps Skupin gone home instead.

Denise is a tough cookie, but Abi surprised me by how long she held on. I don't like her but she's no pushover.

Glad they've merged, glad the jury is started, now begins my favorite part of the game.

SP mod for Sandy delayed shows

Thu, 11/01/2012 - 03:13
As noted in several threads in this forum, various shows have had episodes delayed due to Sandy. In most cases, the networks have simply delayed the scheduled episodes by a week or so. Unfortunately, if your TiVo did not receive an updated schedule before the scheduled time for program airing, your TiVo will 'believe' that the episode has already aired, and if you are using a default Season Pass for the series (or have the SP set so that only New episodes are recorded), you will NOT record the actual airing of episode if it is in the next few weeks (see the 28-day rule).

There are two ways to mitigate this problem:
1) Check the schedule shortly before the next airing of the series and manually force recording or
2) Temporarily change the SP to Record All Episodes. If the selected station also airs past seasons of the series in non-prime time, you may need to delete the unwanted episodes. However, assuming your TiVo is not almost full, this option should allow you to not miss the delayed episodes.

Once all the delayed episodes have been aired, it should be safe to use your normal SP settings.

cable noise

Thu, 11/01/2012 - 03:05
I have bad interference on several analog channels and digital breaking up (sometimes going out completely) figured was time for new drop. Cable tech came out did something no other ever had disconnected every run from splitter and hooked to meter, said I have very bad noise on every run (all 20 years or older) they are going to replace drop and rewire house. I've had the interference on the analog for years (not as bad as it is now) many techs have tried to fix could not will the rewire do it?

Stuck at "Preparing" while "Getting Program Info"

Thu, 11/01/2012 - 02:47
It's been stuck at this screen for over an hour now. I've read other threads, but couldn't find one that particularly covered the Premiere model. Not sure what all info is important, but here is what I do know.

1. Connected to antenna only
2. Connected via ethernet cable
3. Premiere model # TCD746320
4. AFAIK, stock HDD

I've unplugged the unit once only to have it hang-up in the same place each time. Unit was purchased on eBay.

Fall Update and MRV

Wed, 10/31/2012 - 23:53
Back in April i reported here that I was having trouble with seeing my other TiVos and could not get MRVing to work. It happened around the last update in April??. After numerous calls to TiVo support, switching out all my switches, a new Verizon router, It all now works with the Fall Update. TiVo blamed my network, but it now seems like it was TiVo's software. why couldn't they figure this out??????

Supernatural - "Blood Brother" - 10/31/12

Wed, 10/31/2012 - 21:09

Sam didn't just give the bitchface at the end. He's about to snap. How many complete conversations can these two brothers have without ever saying a word. That reach for the weapon. Dean's slight shake of the head. That was intense.

I don't know what to make of Benny. Why did I feel for him? At first I was thinking "we don't care about this much of his back story!" then all of a sudden BAM I'm getting misty. "Why'd you do it?" I think he wishes Dean had dumped his soul in some random grave.

So much to process. Best episode of the season IMO. More thoughts later. Must go to bed.

Oh and that preview!
Spoiler: "you left me to die for a girl!?!" noooooooo

Boardwalk Empire S3E07 "Sunday Best" OAD 2012/10/28 ***spoilers***

Wed, 10/31/2012 - 19:50
Who called it, huh?

As we mentioned it makes no sense that Gillian needed a dead Jimmy. I was sure that that the floor lamp behind the tub was going into the water.

Harrow certainly knew that Jimmy was already dead. What purpose did it make for Gillian to scream "My dear boy is gone!" BEFORE they found the body?

Harrow has his picture-perfect family and it includes the kid. Gillian may not be long for the world.

Did we ever hear that the Commodore put Jimmy in his will? At the start Jimmy didn't even know that the Commodore was his father.

Treme Season 3 - ** spoilers to date **

Wed, 10/31/2012 - 19:16
Methinks this is last season of Treme.

There's a lot revisits to the same stories.

Sonny is off the wagon.

DJ Davis is doing a music project and getting fired from / quitting his job at the NPR station.

Toni is chasing corrupt cops.

Lt. Terry is chasing corrupt cops.

Nelson is making deals.

Big Chief Lambreaux is getting ready for Mardi Gras.

Ladonna is runinng the bar.

Antoine is teaching music.

Janette is being a chef. I was sure that Jacque was going to walk as an illegal. He had a panicked look in his eyes when that management lady laid down the law.

But Man, I love dat music! I bought the soundtrack CDs for the first two seasons.

Fall Update and SDV

Wed, 10/31/2012 - 15:42
Both of my Premiers that updated seem to be unable to to tune SDV channels now. I get the channel unavailable message. This is on Cox Phoenix. I have power cycled the tuning adapters, no joy. Anyone else?
