Person of Interest OAD 10/14/12

Sun, 10/07/2012 - 16:17
Another great episode.
Glad to see the plot moving along. This did not drag.
ROOTs quest continues. Nice little plot twist near the end.
Don't know why more people aren't talking about this show?
I try to get people at work to watch it, just to have someone to talk to about it.
No luck.
One guy started in the middle of the season and couldn't get into it. :(

iPad app can't find compatible devices..help!

Sun, 10/07/2012 - 16:08
I am tryIng to set up moca and stream....please help me!!
1. With my N adapters, I was able to use the TiVo app on iPad no problem
2. I moca'ed my house...it's awesome
3. Added TiVo stream

Now, I cannot even find compatible devices to even get on the app. It wants me to sign on as away device. This is so annoying!

I have cycled everything, network remote is "on", deleted and put app back on, made sure settings in my account are proper, called and wasted many many minutes with TiVo support.

Advice please.

No signal live, okay for recording

Sun, 10/07/2012 - 15:07
I have a most vexing problem. I have a TiVo Premiere (2 tuner) with a M card installed. It has been working fine, but we had all manners of cable issues today. At one point my 2.5 Mbps down was running at .29. I hadn't been getting any live TV on one tuner but was on a second due I think to the TiVo recording on the other channel.

It is looking like recording is working fine and that will result in video display on that channel but there is no live TV. I have restarted my TiVo. Where should I go from there?

Why is The Simpson's Treehouse of Horror on so early?

Sun, 10/07/2012 - 14:59
I'm glad because I hated when they showed it after Halloween, but I wonder why they're showing it so early this year tonight. I hope it doesn't suck.

Review of TiVo Premiere Elite XL4

Sun, 10/07/2012 - 14:14
Recently got a TiVo Premiere Elite XL4 TCD758250. This is my 5th TiVo. I have been a TiVo user since the original TiVo 1 which I bought in 1999. Have done many upgrades but this one didn't need any or at least yet.
Posted my review on Squidoo.
Could use some Squiddo likes if you like it or any comments.

Picture Quality

Sun, 10/07/2012 - 13:54
I have a TIVO Premiere. Can you please tell me what is the difference in picture quality if I record using any of the following?

Best, High, Medium or Basic. Other than more storage space on my TIVO is there any detectable difference in what I am recording and watching on my TV?

Disappearing Shows

Sun, 10/07/2012 - 13:30
It appears shows I've streamed or downloaded via Tivo Stream are disappearing. Nothing shows that that have been deleted, but they are definitely gone from my list of shows. This is a bit troublesome (especially with HBO content) when I want to watch a show my wife has watched already via an iPad, or that I wanted to save to watch again later. Anyone else experiencing this issue?
I'm still trying to track the issue, but my Tivo used to hover around 80-90% full before the stream. Ater the stream, my Tivo is usually 50-60% full. That's when I started noticing the problem.

Nashville is available on iTune for free.

iTunes has the pilot of Nashville available for free. I've been looking forward to this one.

Little People Big World: Wedding Farm - new series starts Nov. 13, 2012

Sun, 10/07/2012 - 12:22
Little People Big World is returning to weekly TV.

TLC has announced it will premiere Little People Big World: Wedding Farm -- a new weekly series that will follow the Roloff family as they operate a new wedding venue on their recently expanded Oregon farm -- on Tuesday, November 13 at 9PM ET/PT.

In addition to chronicling Matt and Amy Roloff's attempt to refurbish a historic barn and launch the new wedding business, Little People Big World: Wedding Farm will also show viewers the day-to-day lives of the couple and their four children -- including Molly preparing to leave for college.

Little People Big World ended its original six-season run on TLC in 2010, however the family has continued to star in a series of occasional specials for the network since then.

According to TLC, the network will also continue to produce additional specials despite Little People Big World: Wedding Farm, which will initially consist of six one-hour episodes.

Little People Big World: Wedding Farm is being produced by Gay Rosenthal Productions -- the same production company that produced Little People Big World -- and executive produced by Gay Rosenthal, Joe Freed, Sven Nilsson, Amy Roloff, and Matt Roloff.

Possible new TiVo Owner

Sun, 10/07/2012 - 12:22
Hello All,
New to the forums.
My question is this: We are TWC customers and are looking at TiVo Premiere. We have basic cable and HD box, was wondering what we will be charged for if we switched to TiVo.
I understand the Cable card rental, but not sure of other cable charges. would we still be billed for basic cable.
I was just curious before we made the move, thank you in advance and sorry for the newbie question.

Grimm 10/12/12 - Evansville, IN - WFIE Pre-Empt

Sun, 10/07/2012 - 11:34
For those in the Evansville, IN viewing area who don't watch Grimm while or shortly after recording...

14 WFIE placed a banner on the 10/05 episode several times stating that *next* Friday's episode (10/12) would be pre-empted in favor of the broadcast of the Reitz @ Mater Dei high school football game.

It goes on to say that the new episode "The Bottle Imp" will be broadcast later that night at 1:05 AM. Okay, so that's technically Saturday morning, but you get the gist.

I checked my SP and schedule last night...it doesn't list the game, but the same Grimm ep at 8:00 PM and 1:05 AM. Given that this is a local one-off schedule change, I doubt that it will make it into the TiVo schedule properly before air time.

So I changed my recording to the 1:05 AM showing. Given how bad the local stations seem to be with these late-night re-broadcasts starting/ending on time, I think I'll play it safe and recorde the programs before and after as well...no way I'm staying up until one in the morning to make sure it records on time!

GSOD install new blank drive - now just flashing

Sun, 10/07/2012 - 11:10
Having trouble with my TiVo Premiere. When I powered it up a while back I got the green screen message that there was a problem and was told to let it run for a while. I let it run for about 15 hours and it never resolved itself, it just kept rebooting and so forth in what I presume was an attempt to repair the drive.

Figuring I had a bad drive combined with the fact that I had a spare 1TB 5400 RPM drive that had not been used yet I decided to replace the drive.

I installed the drive and powered up the TiVo. I'd initially get the "Welcome! Starting up..." screen. Then after a moment it would go off then a few seconds later it would flash back on for a moment along with all the LEDs then they'd all go out and repeat the cycle every 10 seconds or so.

I know a TiVo is not going to run with a blank drive. Is there some way to force it to download the TiVo software from the network on startup? Is that what I need to do in this case?

Description and picture on recordings? Can you do it on pushed files?

Sun, 10/07/2012 - 06:52
I finally figured out how to push movies/shows to my tivo, now the next question on my list would be...When the tivo records something from cable...it has a little picture of the show and a short description about it when you highlight it...is there a way to do that for the shows and movies that I push to the tivo? Would that be metadata?

Using the Stream for added recording space?

Sun, 10/07/2012 - 03:03
This might be a dumb question....so here goes. I just bought a tivo stream and downloaded the tivo app for my ipad. I downloaded several movies and shows to watch as i was traveling by train. It setup and transferred fine.

My question is now that i don't need to transfer movies because i won't be traveling can i hook the stream directly to my premiere and use it for extra recording space?
I don't know if it has any recording capabilities or recording space on it since i just got it a couple weeks ago...:confused:

Early reviews for Virgin Media's TV Anywhere service and TiVo app

Sat, 10/06/2012 - 17:16

It sure looks like the TiVo-implementation of TV Everywhere is on the right track. My speculation is that we are seeing a preview of what will be available on Com Hem, Charter, and Mediacom next year. I should probably also include Suddenlink and RCN on that list. Unfortunately, retail users like me will be left out in the cold unless our provider inks an agreement with TiVo. Maybe Verizon FiOS will support with some of that $29.6 million credit that was discussed in the settlement.

60 Minutes 9/30/12 - Afghanistan and Arnold Schwarzenegger

Sat, 10/06/2012 - 16:22
Anyone watch last weeks ep?

I liked the interview w/Arnold Schwarzenegger. Part 1 at http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=7423834n. There's at least a second part. I haven't compared what's online to what was aired (which I watched on TiVo).

I didn't know about how his parents thought he was gay since he had all these pictures of naked men on his bedroom walls. :)

Warehouse 13 - 10/01 We All Fall down.

Sat, 10/06/2012 - 16:17
I thought this was a solid episode to finish a good season after a couple of disappointing ones. I don't know where they go from here, however. Two years in a row ending with world wide destruction. Are they going to use the astrolabe again?

C'mon I know a few of you watch..........

Scandal Season 2

Sat, 10/06/2012 - 12:55
Just finished watching the season premiere. So Olivia and Huck set Quinn up with her new ID? Guess I should have seen that coming, but I didn't.

I really hope the first lady gets hit by a truck.

Tivo for iOS Unable to Schedule Recordings

Sat, 10/06/2012 - 08:53
Hi all!

I have a Tivo Series 3/HD box and just downloaded the Tivo app for iOS. So far, I think it's a great app. However, I can't schedule any recordings from the app. Every time I attempt to schedule a show to record I get the following error:

Error response from IT: code: 1005, text: Partner not authorized to do this operation.

Has anyone seen this before? Any idea what I can do? This app has a much better interface for looking up shows and scheduling recordings than doing it with the remote. I'd LOVE to use it.

FYI, I ensured that I tested it with programs that I can schedule without issue using the remote and the Tivo box itself.
