What is the best way to test the TV tuner on a series 2 Tivo?

Wed, 08/22/2012 - 10:16
I have a few Series 2 lifetime Tivos. My friend wants to get one of them from me.

At his home, he has Charter cable TV service. He believes that Charter gives him an analog stream from his cable jack. He would like to plug a Tivo directly into the wall with a regular coaxial cable and record shows without any type of a set top box involved.

I would like to test my boxes to see which one has the best quality TV tuner. However, He does not live close to me so there is no way that I do this at his house in person. Also, the cable service at my house is NOT analog. So I cannot test it that way either.

Is there any way to test these boxes at my house before sending them to him?

Thanks!

What? No thread? Was anyone still watching?

I was kinda pulling for Andrea, but Kevin winning is good too. I just didn't want his stalker to win. :eek:

Losing signal occasionally

Wed, 08/22/2012 - 09:22
My Premioer loses signal occasionally. Seems to happen around 10:00pm when I'm trying to record BREAKING BAD! You can tell that this is a serious matter. :-)

The loss is temporary and I see no further trouble for many days. I keep a Sci. Atlanta connected to backup the TIVO which fails much more than the Sci. Atlanta. It records the show lost to the TIVO, so the problem is surely related to TIVO losing signal.

Face Off is back - Spoilers OK

Glad to see this show back, not sure what a 4th judge is going to add with all the guest judges lined up. I'm glad that mohawk guy went home last night, he was a tool and in way over his head, he bombed that first challenge and was a pain to work with.

Dirty Jobs

"Dirty Jobs Down Under" premieres tonight (Wed Aug 22) on the Discovery Channel. This is a spin-off series and doesn't show up under a normal Season Pass because of the title change. Same concept, but this time Mike Rowe is in Australia doing Dirty Jobs.

guide data

Wed, 08/22/2012 - 00:15
I have a new Tivo Premiere with both Verizon FIOS and my off the air antenna configured.

I have guide data, it appears, for all of my FIOS channels. But I have no guide data for my off the air channels -- say "to be announced" for all of my off the air antenna channels.

Any ideas? I've connected to the Tivo service repeatedly and there is no more guide data to download. :(

However, the guide on Tivo.com's website shows my digital stations with guide data.

Thanks!

Question about cable cards & FiOS

Wed, 08/22/2012 - 00:02
I currently have a TiVo + cable card that is paired with FiOS. I have a second unit on the way. To my understanding, pairing is necessary to view channels that are copy-protected, in the case of FiOS - HBO and Cinemax.

What I'd like to do if possible is pair the existing cable card to the new unit so I can get HBO. Can I just go through the whole process again or do I need to pick up a new card? I don't care about HBO on the second unit and when I do need to use this, can I just move the card to this unit without having to pair it?

Channel lockouts

Tue, 08/21/2012 - 23:19
I have a simple yet frustrating problem with a new Tivo Premiere.

I use both Verizon FIOS and an off-the-air antenna. My thought was this way, for local channels, my family doesn't have to remember to tune to channel 502 for channel 2, or channel 505 for channel 5 -- they can just use the off the air antenna to go to channel 2.1 or channel 5.1.

So I've edited my channel list to remove the SD channels 2, 4, 5, 7, etc. and also the FIOS HD channels 502, 504, 505, etc. That way I just see 2.1, 4.1, 5.1, 5.2, etc. in the guide.

Everything is great in the guide. Only the channels I want to appear actually appear.

But then a family member decides to watch channel 7 (ABC) for example. They don't go to the guide. They don't type "7-1". They type "7".

And the TIVO dutifully goes to an SD poor picture quality channel that shouldn't be tuned.

With Dish Network, I was able to "lock out" these standard def versions of the channel. And if someone typed "7", for instance, the Dish DVR would go to channel 7-1 instead of channel 7.

Please, someone, tell me there is a similar option for Tivo so I don't go crazy with my family asking me why the picture is so bad when they tune to channel 7 standard def instead of channel 7-1 high def!

Thanks,
Robert

Weird network problem

Tue, 08/21/2012 - 21:09
Hi all,
Have a weird situation going on. Recently upgraded my home network. That means I got a new wireless router, as well as a wireless bridge/range extender. I currently have two Tivo HDs. Set everything up, and everything was fine. One tivo is hardwired to the bridge. The other is wireless using the b/g adapter. Could transfer from one tivo to the other, and from computer to tivos no problem. Now, the tivos cannot see each other. THey dont show up in the Now Playing lists. Both can connect and transfer from the computer as well as both can connect to the tivo service. If I reboot both machines, they show up in the respective now playing lists, and even let me transfer between the two, but eventually they both dissappear from the now playing list. The only other time I have had something like this happen was before I got the bridge. I got one N adapter, and hooked it up to one tivo, keeping the other b/g. It would work for a bit then stop. Reboot and it would work for a bit then stop. I am by no means a network specialist, and am sure it is something very simple that I am missing, but I just cant see it. Any help?
Thanks.

Live With Kelly CoHost rumor (SPOILER RUMORS ETC.)

Tue, 08/21/2012 - 19:30
So I'm not going to spoiler this.

TMZ is reporting that the new cohost is Michael Strahan.

http://www.tmz.com/2012/08/21/abc-st...host-live-abc/

Quote: Michael Strahan was picked to partner with Kelly Ripa on her morning syndicated show ... this according to staffers at ABC in New York City.

Several staffers told TMZ ... the talk in the building is that Strahan -- who played in the NFL and won a Super Bowl ring -- will be announced as the co-host.

Strahan's rep was seen outside the building on 67th and Columbus a short time ago grinning from ear to ear.

Strahan tried out for the gig in June and apparently impressed the suits.

BTW ... Strahan is 6'5" ... Kelly is 5'3". Dancing should be fun.

I don't like this. I usually watch this as my daughter and I are getting up and around and ready for the day.

And I don't care for Strahan. I mean, I like him-actually a lot, but not in this format. I get really, really tired of the flirting. But it was clear he was a front runner, Kelly clearly loves him.

I'm not all that excited.

Help! message 86...

Tue, 08/21/2012 - 18:35
So... I have a series 3 (almost 4 years old), and last week started to get the S03 error. Long story short, I downloaded tivo desktop, C&DE.

Today I started up all my season passes again and started transferring my shows back to tivo. Everything is working fine when I get the 86 error. It said to check the tivo server, so I did that, no change. Tried to transfer another show, and it worked! Sadly, it hasn't worked again. 86 every time. Then I rebooted, no change.

The tivo is recording from the season passes fine, but I can't record new shows, or start new transfers. Is this something I have to wait out until my current transfers end (about 20)? Or am I just screwed?

S2 dual tuner tivos and Comcast, Malden, MA

Tue, 08/21/2012 - 18:10
This issue has probably been dealt with here but I can’t find the thread.

I’m visiting relatives in MA and trying to help with their Tivo v. Comcast issue. They have 4 S2s, two single tuners and two dual tuners. The two dual tuners will not work with the Comcast equipment. They have Motorola boxes connected in front of all 4 tivos. The dual tuner tivos can’t change the channel on the cable boxes. I haven’t spoken with anyone from Comcast yet but my relatives had a service call and were told the dual tuner tivos don’t work with Comcast equipment.

Is there any kind of a work around for this issue or has Comcast Massachusetts succeeded in extorting its customers into settling for the Comcast DVR?

Thanks in advance.
