Kingwin IDE to SATA Adapter

Thu, 03/07/2013 - 12:18
Has anyone had luck with the Kingwin IDE to SaTA adapter bridgeboard? My hard drive baked just fine using it with my desktop but stalls in the tivo at the "Powering up, just a few more minutes" screen. I've seen a couple bad reviews here on the boards about the kingwin adapter, but has anyone actually been successful?

Interrupted Recordings

Thu, 03/07/2013 - 08:30
I've had my xl4 and premier since 2/15 and have lost three recordings in process. While Tivo CSRs have told me this can happen with software updates, I've learned here that these won't occur during an active recording. They also told me that I should not have the tivo's plugged into a surge protector and that I should protect my boxes with an extended warranty...really? Some helpful fellow tc members pointed out that the boxes should be protected with UPS units. I have done this and still have incomplete, 15 of 60 minutes, recordings. Furthermore, when a recording is interrupted, it doesn't restart when the box comes back online...even comcast dvrs do this!

Any ideas? If my wife misses Justified again, I'm dead meat!

shark tank 3-1-13

Thu, 03/07/2013 - 08:18
boy they really shy away from medical stuff. that woman thought she had gold with all her sales, nope

the peanut thing just seem blah to me. i wouldnt invest

they were scared to death of the tatoo thing too. i guess the fear of lawsuits does stop some products from getting off the ground

the shoe thing to me seemed like a side hobby and not really doing to do so well. i do think the market is very hard to get into and be successful but in a year when they do a follow up we will see the real story

heck on dateline sunday some lottery winner was told how much it costs to even enter the shoe industry and she barely had enough money for a single shoe lol

Seinfeld - Lost Episode shown locally in NY last night

Thu, 03/07/2013 - 07:28
I remember years ago, there was some controversy with the episode "The Puerto Rican Day Parade" and it was pulled out so syndication. I'm a pretty regular watch of the show in syndication and last night, for the first time I can remember since the original run, they showed that episode. I believe it was the penultimate episode of the series (if you don't included the clip show that aired prior to the finale). It was weird in that I remembered very little about the episode, and, in hindsight it just wasn't all that funny. It was almost as if I was watching it as a new episode.

Does anyone else recall seeing it played in syndication at their location? Does TBS play it? I wonder why it was put back in the rotation?

MRV Help

Thu, 03/07/2013 - 06:59
I have just setup my new P4. I have 3 other Tivos on my network. A HD, S2DT, and a 2-tuner Premiere. Those 3 see each other in the now playing menu and can transfer videos between them. The P4 shows in each of their now playing list and they show in the P4's also. However, when I try to access any of them from the P4 to transfer from them I get an error message that there is a network problem and it cannot display any shows. When I access the P4 from any of the others the message says there are no shows. There is one in reality. It is the Tivo welcome video but the others do not see it. I have tried both wired and wireless. Hard and soft resets, multiple downloads from tivo all to no effect. I checked on My Account and they are all enabled for MRV. Can anyone help?

Should I sell my premiere with lifetime to get XL?

Thu, 03/07/2013 - 05:30
So I am considering selling my lifetime premiere I bought new about 2 years ago in order to get a premiere xl with lifetime since I just bought a stream to test it out, but if it doesn't work I'll return it and considering buying a mini.

Questions though:

1.) How much is my tivo premiere worth with standard HD and lifetime?
2.) The xl only has digital tuners, will that be an issue? (I use FIOS)
3.) will the mini or stream take up on of the tuners and allow people to continue to use the TiVo on the primary tv?

Survivor Caramoan : OAD 3-6-2013

Thu, 03/07/2013 - 04:01
The Fans team finally wised up! I have to wonder how much of an accident it was that Shamar got sand in his eye.

On the Favs side, I'm finding Cochran's little insights to be amusing. Also, as goofy as he is, I'm entertained by Phillip and from what we can tell, most everyone else is as well. Who'd have thunk it?

More water challenges, still no puzzles! :up:

POE at tap

Thu, 03/07/2013 - 02:21
I have a question my cable provider Cox will soon be using Tuning adapters and they include poe filters in the setup kit. I would like to use moca for the premiere tivo in the living room. Do I need to put a poe filter on the tap if I have them on the tuning adapters and cable modem? seems like overkill.

Should I watch Jericho?

Thu, 03/07/2013 - 01:14
I am pretty sure I read that it doesn't really end. Should I watch it or am I just going to cause myself TV pain?

Tivo Stream Place-Shifting

Thu, 03/07/2013 - 00:49
I'd like to see Tivo Stream be able to place shift outside of my home network like Slingbox, Vulkano and Belkin @tv Plus.

Do you plan on buying a TiVo Mini at launch?

Do you plan to buy the TiVo Mini at launch or shortly thereafter?

So, I have 2 TiVo Premieres...

Wed, 03/06/2013 - 21:42
I am paying $12.95 a month for the first TiVo and $9.95 a month for the second one.

I am wondering whether I could get a cost savings by going with a Premiere 4 and a Tivo Mini on the other TV, or whether I should leave well enough alone.

Premiere deal $230 off

Wed, 03/06/2013 - 17:48
It looks like they are offering the bundle with $400 service instead of $500. Am I reading that right? It also looks like they're not doing it for the XL4.

Season pass - corrupt shows after transfer

Wed, 03/06/2013 - 17:20
Recently got a new premiere to update the old HD. Will the season passes shown as 'corrupt - delete me (updating)' ever resolve as those shows come back into the guide, or do I really want to just delete them?

New remote, light won't stay on

Wed, 03/06/2013 - 13:27
After many years of use several of the buttons on my Sat-t60 rm-y809 quit working so I bought a replacement. I was able to program the correct remote address but cannot program it to control my TV because the light won't stay lit after pushing & holding the TV & TiVo buttons. I tried to hold the TV & select buttons to do a factory reset but the light won't stay on. I also tried to use the learning function but again the light won't stay on. Can anyone help?

Revolution returns March 25 -- major character dies (no spoilers)

Wed, 03/06/2013 - 12:45
Looks like a major character bites the dust in the return of Revolution March 25. No spoilers (for the upcoming season) in the story...and it looks like PLENTY of action in the returning ep.

TiVo Desktop/TiVo To Go Update

Wed, 03/06/2013 - 11:15

Thank you all for your patience as we develop a solution for this issue. I wanted to provide an update which may help answer any questions you may have.

Fortunately we’ve identified the issue is a result of a bug within the TiVo DVR software and are planning on a patch for TiVo Desktop which will allow transfers to start functioning again. This affects Series 2, Series 3, and Series 4 DVRs. We are currently in the testing and validation process of the patch and will make it available as soon as possible. Once this patch is made available and applied, the transfer feature will be functional.

At this time, 3rd party applications and devices such as ReadyDLNA devices, Windows Home Server devices, Roxio Toast/Popcorn for Mac, the transfer feature’s availability will depend on how strict those devices are in allowing Transfers from a TiVo DVR with this bug. For reference, I’ve been made aware that Mac Software such as Roxio Toast continues to allow transfers but devices such as Netgear’s ReadyNAS which use ReadyDLNA are not allowing transfers.

Until a software update is made available for TiVo DVRs, these 3rd party devices and software may not allow transfers.

We have addressed this bug in the latest Series 4 release and expect to deploy an update on Series 2 and Series 3 which will address the bug as well. The availability date for these software updates is still to be determined.

Once I have more information around availability of the TiVo Desktop patch I will be sure to share.

Thank you again for your patience.”
