Channels suddenly dissapearing

Tue, 09/11/2012 - 00:29
My setup:
San Francisco, CA: Comcast
2 Tivos in home: 1 Premiere & 1 Comcast Cable Box in room.
1 Tivo HD in other room

About two weeks ago I found recordings on a few HD channels didn't happen, and eventually realized it was because Tivo couldn't find a signal on those channels. The message on these channels is "Searching for signal on this cable channel..."
This problem got worse over the ensuing days to the point where at least 25% of my channels wouldn't work. Then it plateaued and has not got worse.
For example:
ESPN on both standard and HD are both effected (38 and 724)
Comcast Sports is effected in HD, but mostly working in standards (720, 40)
Many channels Comcast Sports2 (721) work with no problems at all.

I checked the signal strength of channels that are still working fine and it's around 40-43. Channels that are a bit fragmented around in the 30-35 signal strength range (standard def only, haven't found any HD channels that are fragmented; HD are either working fine or not at all). Channels that aren't working at all are 0 signal strength.

My non-DVR Comcast cable box (which I once used for OnDemand access) works fine, in the same room. They split off from the same source cable, and I have tried both cords into he cable box with no problems at all.

My Tivo HD unit in the other room works without problems, with all channels in the 40ish signal strength range.
These are all units that have been working from between 1-3 years, and this problem is new.

I have tried restarting my TIVO Primiere box, as well as re-seating the M card a few times. No help.

Any suggestions or ideas as to what might be causing this issue?

"The Mindy Project" pilot free on Amazon

Mon, 09/10/2012 - 22:17
I looked at the free stuff over the weekend on Amazon, and "The Mindy Project" pilot is free.. and the main episode itself is commercial free. (They have some promos for other shows beforehand and maybe after, but you can just FF through it.)

I thought it was amusing. I like Mindy Kaling though, so I may be biased. It wasn't *GREAT* however.. Worth watching at least a few more.

Timberland Uk Sales Steady Week

Mon, 09/10/2012 - 21:46
Steady Week timberlandbrands.com:timberlandbrands.com]Timberland 6 Inch
Steady week this week.
Ran early mornings Monday and Tuesday – just 25 mins / session around Shipley Glen – it’s nice to get out first thing especially when the weather’s good.
Didn’t do anything Wednesday then ran with Bingley Harriers Thursday evening. Tough session (for me) as the fast boys were out. 1 hour 15 around Cottingly timberlandbrands.com:timberlandbrands.com]Timberland Uk Sales, Harden Moor and St Ives.
Friday morning out again around Shipley Glen for a quick trot.
It’s my wife’s 40th this weekend and her party was last night so I’m feeling a bit sluggish today – will try and get out for an hour a bit later though – got to keep things ticking over.?

Is there a way to learn what new series will be on Hulu Plus?

Mon, 09/10/2012 - 21:41
I saw a couple of new season pilots on Hulu Plus (Go On, The New Normal, to name two) but it occurs to me that their appearance on Hulu might be just to build pre-season buzz and the run of episodes might not actually appear on Hulu Plus through the season.

Is there a way to tell in advance so I know what programs I can catch on Hulu Plus vs. those that I need to add to set up a TiVo SP for?

best way to set up Series 2?

Mon, 09/10/2012 - 21:08
I've just moved to a new house. The new cable company installed a phone/internet modem in the den for the main TV and main computer. I want to set up my Series 2 TiVo with my older model TV in the bedroom. But I can't do the Guided Set-up with a phone line because apparently the phone lines only work where the modem is ... on the other side of the house. And I'm confused by the broadband connection options. I see conflicting info about what kind of adapter to get. I see customer reviews that the TiVo wireless adapter isn't that good. Why does this have to be so complicated?? The cable company won't help me because they "don't support TiVo." And I'm not sure how TiVo can help if they don't know how my cable company set me up. I hate being so helpless! Suggestions appreciated.

CBS 9/9 - Pacific time zone

Mon, 09/10/2012 - 20:41
I realize this is cutting it close, but because of the length of the U.S. Open match, CBS is not airing Hawaii 5-0 in the Eastern or Central time zones, so it might not air in the Pacific time zone either.

Can I sell this Tivo with Lifetime?

Mon, 09/10/2012 - 19:52
Order Shipped April 7, 2008 1 TiVo Product Lifetime Service gift subsc $399.00 $399.00
Order Shipped April 7, 2008 1 180-hr TiVo HD DVR $299.99 $299.99

Above is from my account.

I just ordered a Tivo Premiere with Life time and wondered if I can sell on my lifetime associated with the Tivo 3 (I also have a now unused Wireless adapter)?

How do I do that? Will a new owner automatically get lifetime when they turn on the box?

I searched but the answers all came from 2008 and earlier which may no longer be valid.


Signal lost TiVo stopped recording altogethe

Mon, 09/10/2012 - 18:47
I have a season pass setup for NFL Football and yesterday it only recorded the first 10 minutes of the Falcon's game because the Tivo temporarily lost the signal.

The recording should have been about 4-1/2 hours in duration and the signal was only lost for a portion of that time - why would it stop recording the rest of the program?

Can anyone explain why this would happen?

I really missed not having the game to watch when I got home yesterday.

Tivo Premier and Tivo XL4

Mon, 09/10/2012 - 17:13
I just purchased the XL4. The XL4 replaces my standard Premier. The old Premier was upgraded to 2T hard drive.

My question is, If the XL4's hard drive goes out, can I install the standard Premier hard drive (with the software still installed) and the XL4 boot from that hard drive?

pyTivo install was a breeze but I can't wrap my tiny brain around pywin32

Mon, 09/10/2012 - 16:25
While visiting family I’m trying to enhance their Tivo experience a bit. I’ve successfully installed pyTivo on their desktop but I would like it to run as a service. The pyTivo install was easy enough (it’s the second time I’ve done it) but I feel like an idiot when it comes to pywin32.

I installed pyTivo about a month ago. I’m leaving soon so I thought I’d take another shot at installing pywin32. My brain is locked as to where to begin. Do I extract pywin32 into its own directory, the python27 directory or the pyTivo directory? I assume I have to run setup.py from a cmd window but I further admit my cluelessness regarding the pywin32 read me file instructions.

“setup.py' is a standard distutils build script. You probably want to:
% setup.py install” (Huh?)

Can someone give me a push to get me started?
