Hearst Television contracts with Time Warner, Bright House, Insight Cable expired

Mon, 07/02/2012 - 15:54
Heads up. Hearst Television's contract with Time Warner, Bright House, and Insight Cable systems has now expired.

They've extended carriage out under the current contract through July 9, but Hearst is stating that negotiations are "at an impasse" with all three systems.

If negotiations aren't complete by July 9 (and Hearst indicates that they are not ongoing at this time) Hearst stations will likely be blacked out.

Thinking of going from FIOS to RCN

Mon, 07/02/2012 - 14:55
Am I crazy?
Trying to lower my bills a bit. I have a premier and an S3 and I was thinking of taking RCN's deal on the 4 tuner Premier and their streaming capability with their media extenders. I'd sell my S3 (with lifetime and 1.5TB drive) and save a bit of cash.

Anybody that have RCN, especially in Boston, are the 50Mbit speeds really truly 50Mbit and do they throttle or cap?

Also can I MRV between my owned premier and their premier?
Can I upgrade the internal hard drive in the RCN premier?

The NHL 2012 Off-season thread

Mon, 07/02/2012 - 14:25
I don't expect too much action here :)

So far, this is the most boring FA period I can remember. There's really only 2 big names (Parise and Suter) and neither have signed anywhere yet.

Another somewhat big name is Semin, and I wonder who will take a chance on him.

Upgrade to HR34, what do I need?

Mon, 07/02/2012 - 14:07
I am currently paying the $10 HD fee (and getting that credited back for 12 months), and I have lifetime TiVo service (now called Advanced Receiver).

If I upgrade to an HR34, will I be forced to also pay for MRV (Whole Home) even though I don't want it?

I'll need to be upgraded to SWM (to support the HR34). Anything else to worry about?


Elite only sees networked computer on reboot

Mon, 07/02/2012 - 12:37
This seems to have started only recently. In My Shows on my Elite it does not show see my computer unless I reboot the tivo, then it's there. Everything is "hardwired" via ethernet cables to a router.

Any thoughts? Thanks.

How do I update my email for Tivo alert notices

Mon, 07/02/2012 - 11:16
So I recently changed my email, so I go to tivo.com and update my email to the new one. Yet, all of my tivo alerts are still going to my old address. Is there somewhere else I need to update my email?


Falling Skies - Young Bloods

Mon, 07/02/2012 - 08:52
Anyone still watching? I think the episode was interesting in both how the little kid is growing up and being pretty smart and brave and the glowing spikes on the other son. The daughter thing was sort of a waste of time.

Inside Men

Mon, 07/02/2012 - 07:35
I've only watched the first two eps of this four-part BBC mini-series but so far it's superb. It's a crime drama about three employees who plan and execute a heist at the security depot where they work. It starts with the heist itself - which is thrilling, brutal, terrifying - and then goes back and forth in time to show how it all came about and how it all turns out. Steven Mackintosh gives a great performance as the manager of the depot; a quiet, reserved man who isn't quite as mousy as he first appears.

Highly recommended!

The Newsroom S01E02

Mon, 07/02/2012 - 07:21
I think discussions of this show might have to be bifurcated into discussing the characters and the relationships on one hand, and the "News" and the "Politics" on the other.

I'm starting to have problems with both.

The news/politics scenes are written as if someone went to Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly, and asked them to write an SNL style sketch of what they think the "lamestream" media is. It's extremely left wing and partisan, but yet totally unaware that it is, or at least is trying to deny that it is.

At least in the West Wing they admitted that this is a liberal Democratic president and were proud of it.

Here, their complete unawareness is entering self-parody, even if they pretend that Will McEvoy is a Republican.

The characters - well, they're just Sorkinisms too. Why is Macenzie so obsessed about having to tell everyone that Will is a nice guy? Who gives a crap?

I'll stick with it for a while though.

So sick of losing remote

Sun, 07/01/2012 - 23:36
C'mon...This is getting old. YEARS now. The F'ing Tivo loses the ability to receive remote commands and after about 10 minutes it reboots. GIVE ME A BREAK. Software is not that hard for God's sake. F'ing fix it Tivo!!!!!!

The Great Escape "USS Hornet" 7/1/2012

Sun, 07/01/2012 - 23:22
The other thread was marked no spoilers, so I created this one.

When the previews showed an aircraft carrier I thought it might be the Hornet, it's just across the bay from Alcatraz that was in episode 1.

Unfortunately episode 2 didn't improve on episode one. It at least it doesn't look like the getting caught by guards is guaranteed. As these people didn't see the first episode they are either sneakier than the players from the previous episode or the guards were told to back off some. The whole thing seems to take place over an hour or two, one stressful morning, but not the drama they seem to try to hype.

What was most disappointing is how little was mentioned about the Hornet. It's the ship that recovered the Apollo 11 crew. We even saw the Airstream isolation trailer on the flight deck and all the people just ran past it without taking notice.

Tivo won't record when TV is off

Sun, 07/01/2012 - 20:59
I have a 6 month old Tivo Premier and I have an intermittent problem - When I first turn on the TV, I can't rewind. It's like the Tivo went to sleep, and when I turn on the TV it wakes up. But it's not just when the TV has been off for a long time.

Just this afternoon we were watching the Olympic trials. We stepped out of the house for a bit, so we hit record, then turned off the TV. When we got back and turned on the TV 20 minutes later, we couldn't rewind, and the missing time wasn't recorded either! The "recording info" said 40 minutes, but there was only 18 minutes recorded and we could see the splice from the point where we turned off the TV to when we turned it back on later. WTH?

We've had a number of other problems with Tivo randomly just not recording the shows it's programmed to get, and the only time it happens is when the TV is off. Really frustrating, when that's the only reason we have it! Does anyone have any ideas?

Channel 1 - On Demand Question

Sun, 07/01/2012 - 18:51
Is the Channel 1 for Comcast On Demand support to work or Show Up?? It says searching for signal when I tune to 1.

I have the On Demand functionality via Tivo Menus OK.

Olympic Trials

Sun, 07/01/2012 - 17:21
Anyone been watching?

Looks like Phelps is going to have some serious competition in the pool this summer.

Gymnast Danell Leyva on the high bar. Spectacular!

Sad to see Nastia Liukin looking like she's past her prime already.


Sun, 07/01/2012 - 16:43
More and more shows are releasing full length episodes on YouTube which is great but I find it extraordinarily difficult to find and then play these using the standard Tivo search function and the peanut. It's literally not worth the amount of work involved. Am I missing something or is searching with the letter selector and the peanut really the only way to go?

Deleting all of a Particular Title

Sun, 07/01/2012 - 16:34
I have 120+ episodes of the same show configured to never delete and I want them all gone. Is there a way to nuke the entire show in one shot?

tivo hd - clearing & deleting how long - NEVER MIND THIS POST

Sun, 07/01/2012 - 15:41
I read some other threads, so I am hoping I don't have a issue. I am trying to clear and delete Tivo HD and the message says this make take an hour. After 3 hours I powered off and back on and it is still deleting? Normal?


Windows: Right-click and send to tivo?

Sun, 07/01/2012 - 15:09
I'd like to be able to just right click on a file in the Windows explorer and send to the TiVo. I have PyTivo setup and it works great, and has for several years.


Queen -w- Adam Lambert Kiev

Sun, 07/01/2012 - 14:06
I know we have some Queen / AI / Adam Lambert fans here so I wanted to share this youtube of their entire concert in Kiev last night before today's Euro 2012's grand finale football match (0 0 at this moment). These full concert youtube future DVD promo videos tend not to stay up long so if interested check it out soon.


Can no longer copy shows from one tivo to another

Sun, 07/01/2012 - 11:02
Since about June 18, almost EVERY show I record on any of my 3 Tivos will not copy to another tivo, they all have the red circle with the diagonal line... which I think means the show is copy protected. What gives? This is true even for shows that before June 18 were NOT copy protected and I could copy (such as Lois & Clark on Hub). Is something broken in the latest Tivo service release? Is this a bug? I think this really limits the usefulness of my Tivos! I've tried restarting all three Tivos... no change.
