TiVo dead, it just dawned on me that I can't even watch live TV

Wed, 10/17/2012 - 21:30
My series 3 is lit up in front and nothing is happening, so I suspect it's a power supply. I have to go out into the black widow den (aka the shed) and poke around until I find a T10 or get bitten on the hand, whichever comes first.

But in the meanwhile I thought I would set the TV to get the cable signal directly so my wife could watch live TV. Then I realized I don't have a cable box--I have 2 cable cards in a dead machine.

So I'm right in thinking that I can't watch TV until I get TiVo fixed, right?

Descriptive Audio ruins shows! How to remove?

Wed, 10/17/2012 - 20:49
How do I turn off the descriptive audio? ABC started tonight on all the shows and it is very distracting. There is no DA setting to remove. I tried SAP and main audio. Nothing works.

A chat with TIVO was useless. They have never heard of it.

What to do? I have a Premier box and a series 3 HD.

Tivo slide remote ribbon cable repair

Wed, 10/17/2012 - 20:26
I saw a few threads about malfunctioning slide remotes but I didn't see anyone else who actually broke the little ribbon cable that connects the halves.

I dropped the remote and then the buttons on the top part weren't working properly, although the bottom (keyboard) part seemed fine. I tried changing batteries to no avail, so I slid the mechanism a few times and then I saw the ribbon cable hanging out. So, my best guess is when I dropped it the cable got damaged somehow and then the sliding broke it.

Anyways, I took the whole remote apart and it would be easy to fix if I could find a replacement cable. Has anyone done this? The cable is 20 pin, 0.5mm pitch, 60mm long. This is about the closest match I can find, not sure if it will work but I can't find it much cheaper even at quantity 1 with shipping...

Quick (probably simple) MoCA question

Wed, 10/17/2012 - 18:59
I just ordered a premiere 4 XL. To set up the network connection, can I just plug the coaxial cable from the wall into the DVR, or do I still need to get an adapter?

thanks --

suggestions for an older Series 2 (dual tuner)

Wed, 10/17/2012 - 12:01
I have a Series 2 Dual tuner Tivo with a lifetime subscription on it. It has been working great and its now mainly connected to an older SD television in our basement. Not used much either.

Well, it used to be a dual tuner, but Comcast eliminated all analog channels in my area so I combined it with a free digital adapter from Comcast to make it a single tuner DVR. Well, Comcast is now charging me for my "supposedly" free DTA box. Therefore, I'm thinking of just sticking an older Series 3 TiVo down there instead with a cable card (for about $5 more per month) & get a LOT more channels too compared to the basic DTA box.

I'm thinking of then just selling this Series 2 on ebay or Craigslist, but wondering if there are any other suggestions on what to do with it since it now pretty much can't be used alone. Some sort of external box is needed. Any thoughts?

drive upgrade for TiVo HD with external drive

Wed, 10/17/2012 - 11:55
My TiVo HD has the stock hdd, with a 500gb (tivo supplied western digital) eSata external drive.

This system is a few years old and I'm getting concerned that the disks won't last for ever, so I would like to backup or upgrade before they go bad.

I'm wondering if its possible to upgrade to a single 1 or 2tb drive, eliminating the need for the external drive, while preserving the content that is currently striped across both the internal and external drives.
To put it another way, I would like to merge the data from the existing pair of disks onto a single 1/2TB internal drive.

Is that possible?

Sons of Anarchy - "Small World" - 10/16/12

Tue, 10/16/2012 - 23:35
Should have named this one "Head". LOL

Seems at the moment creating and casting Carla was a complete waste of time and resources...

Glad they quickly settled the score with Sgt Macky.

I guess we see why Sutter wouldn't/couldn't kill his own character off now. (aside from his own self inflated ego.)

HEY! Guess what! Clay is behind the home invasions! LOL

Series 2 video question

Tue, 10/16/2012 - 22:28
I recorded 2 shows on the series 2 (single tuner, standard def video), same station.
After transfer to my Mac, via iTivo, one shows as 640x368, the other, 640x480. The 640x368 show looks better when viewed on the Mac, and the full screen is visible. When viewed on a TV, it looks clipped on the sides.

Pardon my ignorance, I thought SD broadcasts were all the same. What am I missing?

1.5TB Seagate "Green" HDD for $49 AR at CompUSA

Tue, 10/16/2012 - 18:51
Looking to upgrade the capacity of your TiVo Premiere? This might be the item for you:

Seagate 1.5TB Green Drive for $49

It's only $49 AR and a similar deal like this was posted before and the drive was $80 AR, so it's a good deal to to from 320GB/500GB --> 1.5TB.

Hope this helps someone.

Season Pass has no name

Tue, 10/16/2012 - 18:45
I have a Series 3 TiVo and every once in a while I will create a Season Pass and the Season Pass will not display the show name. Just the channel. Then when the shows record and there is more than one of them, the folder in Now Playing will not show the show name, either, just the number of items in the folder. (If there's only one show recorded or I view without grouping, then I see the show name, but when sorted by name the show sorts at the end of the list.)

One current example of a program showing this problem is Pawn Stars on The History Channel.

I've tried deleting and recreating the season passes. I'm not sure what else to try without deleting everything and starting over, which is way too painful.

Has anyone else fixed this problem?

Recording Deletion Option Issues

Tue, 10/16/2012 - 18:39
When I set up a "Season Pass" recording session this morning (the first such on our new Premiere) I chose the option to only delete when space was needed. However when I checked out the 11 shows that were recorded they all had yellow balls next to them and were slated to be deleted in 3 days. I had to change each recording to a green ball by selecting "Keep until I delete" (or however it is worded). If there is a way to select that as a default, I cannot find it. While I understand (until space becomes tight) the deleted programs can be found in the recently deleted folder. But I don't want that! Help please.......
