Suddenly no video or audio

Sat, 06/23/2012 - 00:11
I have a TiVo Series 2 box. I woke up this morning to find clocks in my house were flashing. Apparently we lost power around 2am, based on the time showing on the flashing clocks. I don't know how long it was out.
When I checked this afternoon to watch a program I had set to record this morning it was just static. I checked my cable box and found that it was off. After turning it on I was able to watch tv normally.
This evening I was watching a ballgame, and realized that the TiVo record light was on. Checking the settings, it was supposed to have changed the channel and recorded a different show. Instead it recorded the ballgame I was watching.
I checked to make sure the blasters were still attached to my cable box, and they were.
I did a restart of the TiVo, and that didn't help, so I did a Repeat Guided Setup. When it got to the part which says something like "Do you see a picture?", I had no picture (or sound). I checked my cable box, which seemed fine, but to be sure I unplugged and replugged it again.
I am able to watch tv normally with my cable box. When I go to Watch Live TV from TiVo Central I get a blank picture and no sound.
I am able to watch the tv shows I've already recorded, so there's no problem with the TiVo to tv hookup.
I tried setting the TiVo timer to record a show. At the specified time the TiVo began recording, but it did not change the channel on my cable box to the requested channel. I physically changed the channel on my cable box but I get no picture or sound regardless of the channel.
All cables are secure. Nothing was changed in the setup. It worked fine yesterday, and now doesn't.
Can someone tell me what to check next?

Can you transfer recordings from a TivoHD with a failed power supply?

Fri, 06/22/2012 - 22:19
I've got a TivoHD with what I believe to be a failed power supply. It's got no lights on the front and I can't hear or feel the fan running. I've been considering getting a Premier XL4 for awhile now and rather than spend money to replace the power supply I think I'm just going to buy a new Tivo.

I'm wondering if it's possible to transfer my programs off the TivoHD to a Premier XL4. I upgraded the drive in my TivoHD to a 1 TB drive a couple of years ago if that makes any difference.

The Firm

Fri, 06/22/2012 - 21:50
Last week's episode was preempted by U.S. Open coverage but the change wasn't reflected in the schedule in time, so my TiVo, at least, thought it was recorded so wasn't going to record tomorrow nights episode.

Kickstart not working

Fri, 06/22/2012 - 18:20
My S2 froze like another thread documents. No problem, I thought (although annoying). I unplugged the unit, waited about 15 seconds, and restarted. When the TiVo got stuck on the Welcome acreen, (after a curse or 4) i tried again.

When that disnt work, i performed the Kinckstart procedure.

However, that doesn't work either! The lights go amber, I enter the code (57), and the left light immediately goes green. The right light remains amber.

Hower, the TiVo does not restart into the Kinckstart menu. It stays on the Welcome screen until I unplug the unit.

??? I can't find any threads on kicks tarting doesn't work.

Help?

FYI: TiVo is 10 years old (original owner), hard drive upgraded to 1TB Nov 2010 and the fan was replaced. No do drive noises, although fan is going bad again.

Thanks in advance

Wrong programmes being recorded

Can anyone direct me towards any help to get my season passes to record the correct programme? I have deleted them and reinput them but sdtill no joy.

XL4 only recieving black screens for video

Fri, 06/22/2012 - 14:19
I just recently purchased the new Premier XL4. After going through several cable cards and to this point 3 service visits, it is still not working. All I get for video is a black screen that says there is a problem with the cable signal. My video cable strength is strong enough (89-90db). The cable cards are paired with the TiVo. I have worked with TiVo support and so far the only thing we can find that under the cable card menus, If you go to the CA menu, application data (two screens in) the data is not being downloaded from Comcast. Anyone else run into this and have a solution?

Please, thank you in advance.

The Royal Pains summer 2012 thread (spoilers allowed through the current episode)

Fri, 06/22/2012 - 11:26
Anyone still watching this? This is still one of my favorite summer shows (and might be top 10 favorite of what is currently on TV, no matter what the season). But, I'm not sure I like the Hank/Evan fued. I agree with Divya, they need each other. Hank has no business sense, and Evan, is too overly driven to see the field before the trees. And of course his choice of Doctors are wrong.

Plus, they did a really curious misdirection with Jill. First she's leaving, then she's not, then she's leaving again? Has she completely been written out? She's kind of a strange character anyway. She's supposed to be a doctor, but whenever she's with Hank, it appears she knows NOTHING about diagnosis or medicine in general. And then she's going to Africa to treat patients there. Anyway, I'll miss her character. Nice eye candy, and I liked her chemistry with Hank.

The Great Escape on TNT - Anyone else in? (no spoilers please)

Fri, 06/22/2012 - 11:18
I wasn't going to watch this, but after reading this article, I think I will:

Since it's by the producers/directors of The Amazing Race and also Howard/Glazer it should be well done.

TivoAir WebBrowser (DEVELOPER CALLOUT)

Fri, 06/22/2012 - 09:28
An Adobe air developer "Scott Johnson" created a WebBrowser capable of Flash playback and JavaScript. I have emailed back and fourth about broadcasting the app into Bonjour ports and its possible we maybe closer then ever imagined.

install or learn more use search engine type in -> lucentminds . com adobe air
I'm unable to post the link, since I reactivated my membership here.

This is an call-out to all interested in helping get the browser viewable as a Tivo app.

Premiere Changing Channels

Fri, 06/22/2012 - 09:01
Has anyone seen this problem ? Last night my tivo was recording 2 movies. One on Sci-Fi and one on USA. I was watching the tuner that was on USA. When the movie ended and the recoring stopped the tivo switched the channel to TNT. When I pulled up the guide it still parked on the USA channel. If I press the button that swaps tuners it will switch to the other tuner (Sci-Fi channel) and then switch back and its back on the USA channel. This has happened quite a few times even when only one tuner is recording, but I thing it only started happening since the last update. I tried rebooting but that hasen't helped.

New XL4 came w/old software ver??

Fri, 06/22/2012 - 03:13
I bought a new Tivo Premiere XL4 from best buy today (June 22, 2012) and had expected the software version to be fairly up to date. I wasn't expecting it to be loaded with a version that's been out in the last day or for the last few months for that matter. BUT, I found my machine had version 14.9.2-01-2-758! I thought I read version 20 has been out since Jan 2012?

Question: Is it normal for newly manufactured Tivo's to be loaded with an old version? Is there a way to confirm when my box was manufactured??

Now I'm wondering if Tivo took a hard drive over 8 months old or took inventory from old Tivo's and slapped the XL4 label in the front. It's a bit disconcerting to me that I may have paid top dollars for old equipment.

UPDATE: found a label on the box saying Made in Mexico with a date 11-Apr-12. I'm assuming that means April 11, 2012. But still makes me wonder why mine had software version 14?? I got the impression reading reviews and such that their boxes came with the latest. . .

any thoughts?

The taylormade r9 driver is important for you

Fri, 06/22/2012 - 02:05
We all know that a thousand-li journey is started by taking the first step. Then golfing is not as easy as you imagine, there are lots of skills in the game, how to choose the right game is important to you!

This taylormade r9 driver helps promote draws and fades with different settings allowing for a side to side trajectory change of up to 40 yards, with the same settings also helping to reduce hooks and slices.

The shallower face and larger head allow a large sweet spot and confidence at address. What makes R9 driver special is the use of Flight Control Technology, which helps the head to be adjusted to 8 different positions altering trajectory and direction by changing the loft, lie and face angle.

The r9 driver includes one 16-gram & two 1-gram changeable weights. This allows you to change the clubs center of gravity location to affect side-to-side flight by up to 35 yards. Put the heavy weight in the heel port to promote a draw, in the toe port to promote a fade, and in the middle port to promote a straight flight.

Regardless of what loft and customized shaft they have tried to correct for this problem, this type of player realizes that the head design and CG location of R9 Driver is what is needed. Cheap golf club sets the face depth of the driver is at the USGA legal limit.

Then you must know how to get along with the r9 driver golf clubs online, right?

The design of callaway diablo edge

Fri, 06/22/2012 - 02:04
What's the design for callaway diablo edge irons?

A lower, deeper CG is designed to make the sweet spot more accessible at lower impact locations. It generates greater, more consistent distance and perfects accuracy for more greens in regulation.

The callaway diablo edge did not have that problem at all, in fact due to the distance I was getting out of the irons, you could in fact drop another one and add a 3rd hybrid if you really struggle with long irons. The hybrids are extremely easy to hit and are ultra forgiving.

The use of such golf clubs is simple and only requires skill of the player when it comes to getting the sweet spot. New features could also be introduced in such irons as they could be used for a better performance by adding new scales of thickness and surface shine.

The callaway diablo edge irons also feature Callaway’s “Solid Impact Sole,” designed to improve turf interaction and help golfers who catch the ball fat or thin. They are a game-improvement set aimed at mid- and higher-handicappers.

The Solid Impact Sole delivers smooth turf interaction and is designed to mitigate the effects of heavy and thin shots. It also improves the impact location on the face for greater distance.

The goal of callaway x22

Fri, 06/22/2012 - 00:34
The Callaway X22 irons are a result of many hours of engineers consulting with professional golfers to come up with a clean looking club head designed for amateur player.

Some features of the callaway x22 are perimeter weighting, modified Tru-Bore, tour inspired head shape, and VFT technology.

These clubs are designed with maximum inertia moment which helps in giving the perfect gravity, flight and velocity to the ball when it is being hit. its head is designed for tour players with modified Tru-Bore design and VTF technology. all of these technologies make them quality oriented and authentic clubs and these are good in price too.

This iron set has been played in an appropriate fashion. The wear is typical for a set of it/s model age that has been well taken care of. Ball wear is visible with the only signs of cosmetic wear being limited to minor scratches to the finish and typical groove wear.

The callaway x22 irons have a precision notch weighting. This type of weighting allows Callaway to precisely position weight on the golf club to create a higher moment of inertia. This then generates one of the most forgiving golf clubs while not altering the center of gravity and messing up the trajectory.

Good quality wholesale golf clubs is designed for accomplished golfers seeking premium feel and stability.

American Restoration RANT!!!

Thu, 06/21/2012 - 23:42
Is it me or has American Restoration become more about Rick and his family then the actual process of restoring. They show very little or at times NONE at all of the restoration process.

How can this be called RESTORATION when they don't even show much of the process anymore. When the show started first they showed quite a bit of the process.

Just wondering if it is just me that noticed this and has a gripe about it or what!
