Connect to a different wifi address

Sat, 09/01/2012 - 19:22
I apologize if this information is here somewhere but I promise I searched high and low before writing this.
Due to a weak wifi signal in the room where my Premiere is I recently added a wifi extender. I now need to have my Tivo connect to the new network address.
I have gone through guided set up multiple times and reset my wireless Network adapter to no avail.
How do I go about getting to the setup screen where I can choose to have my Tivo connect to my wifi extender instead of my router?

Connect TIVO Drive to PC

Sat, 09/01/2012 - 18:41
Series 3, WD drive
Can someone tell me what connector/adapter to buy to connect my TIVO hard drive to my pc?
I had an A/C power supply to the expansion drive go bad and now with a new power supply the TIVO will neither recognize it or clear it on boot up.
I've tried everything including KSs and it won't budge. It seems like there's plenty of info on doing a format & loading the image but I'm kind of behind on the latest hardware terminology and I can't find an adapter cord to fit my TIVO drive and connect to the PC (internally)
Any help appreciated.

Want to add a QAM channel after scan

Sat, 09/01/2012 - 18:21
When I do a scan, all the channels I want come in except for one local that I can pickup from my built-in QAM tuner on my Samsung tv. When I enter the numbers directly on the tivo, I can see the channel fine and can record live. But I can't setup a future manual recording without it in the channel list. Is there a way to add channels to the list?

2 TiVos, 1 Logitech Harmony, Same room (How to)

Sat, 09/01/2012 - 16:57
There are a lot of Threads on this, and I'm sorry if this is just redundant. But this worked for me and wanted to post these two links together for anyone trying to do this. Most of what I found was extra, unnecessary steps. Hope this is helpful.

This worked perfectly for my Logitech Harmony

1 - Controlling two TiVo boxes with separate remotes
2 - Then, Do what this says

Now I have 2 Premieres, 1 remote. Controlled completely separate.

New HD for an old Series 1 TiVo

Sat, 09/01/2012 - 15:19
I was given a Philips TiVo Series 1. The prior owner had installed a larger 160MB hard drive, but when I hooked it up, it would not complete the boot up process. He had given me two older smaller drives. I hooked up just one of the smaller drives (labeled A) and the device completed booting and set up and seemed to work fine. Only problem is that the older drive makes a loud whining noise. So here are my questions: Can I just go out and buy any new hard drive, or do I need to buy a specific kind (size or make)? Will the device will automatically format and set up the new hard drive once installed?

KMTTG and Two TiVos

Sat, 09/01/2012 - 09:51
I have two TiVo Premiers (let's call them TiVo 1 and TiVo 2) that I frequently transfer shows from one to the other using a crossover cable. This allows me to see the recordings from TiVo 1 in the What's Playing list for TiVo 2 and transfer them.

The process itself works very well as the recordings transfer over with no conversion required.

The time consuming part is having to individually select each recording for the Transfer. For one or two recordings it would be OK, however, there are times when I have hundreds of recordings.

It would be nice if there was the ability to select a folder or select multiple recordings first followed by the transfer process.

Is there a way for KMTTG to facilitate a TiVo to TiVo transfer through the computer?

If not, would this ever be a future feature?

Is there another way to copy recordings across TiVos that is quicker?


series 3 error on upgrade

Fri, 08/31/2012 - 23:23
I was having a series 3 reboot. I assumed it was the Hard Drive. I bought a WD5000azdx and performed a restore from the broke hard drive using mfslive. It completes without failure. When I install the drive and turn it on the system stalls on Welcome. Powering up. All 4 lights on the front are on and the little tivo on the lcd display on front is showing.

I have also tried with an image I begged. No benefit.

Any suggestions.

2 problems with Premiere XL

Fri, 08/31/2012 - 22:43
Hi all,

I've have 2 issues with my Premiere XL. One is easy to describe, one is a little more difficult. I'll do the easy one first.

1. If I'm recording 2 live shows, specifically sporting events, I'll start watching one, pause it at halftime, then go start watching the other one and when it catches up I'll resume the one that was at halftime. The issue is, when I go to play the first one, it ALWAYS reverts back to the beginning. I can't resume from where I paused! This happens when a show is currently being recorded. Am I doing something incorrectly?

2. If I'm watching a game (I'll use football for instance) and I want to fast forward between the end of a play and the hike of the next play, I used to be able to hit the FF twice and then just before they reach the line of scrimmage, click the reverse arrow so it's only going FFx1 and then hit play and it picked up right from where I wanted it to play. As you know, if I FFx2 and hit play it generally picks back up just moments after the place where I started before I fast-forwarded. Now when I use my strategy, about 50% of the time it works, the other 50% of the time it skips an additional 10-15 seconds. Any suggestions on what I'm doing wrong there or if there is a fix? Really, really weird. If I'm unclear on this issue please ask any questions and I'll elaborate.


Multiple Premiere's and Integrated My Shows

Fri, 08/31/2012 - 20:41
Sorry if there is already a discussion on this topic. I couldn't think of a good way to search for it. If there is someone please point me to it.

Anyway, I was thinking about the new TiVo Stream and it got me thinking about the idea of watching your stuff wherever you are in the house. This led me to think about how you find content that you have recorded and I thought, wouldn't it be cool if no matter what TiVo or device you were on you saw a fully integrated My Shows list with all the shows on all your networked devices. This way you wouldn't have to sit around and think about which Tivo has what show. You could just select and play.

It seems like something like that would be fairly easy to implement and really turn Tivo into an easy to use whole house solution.

I'm sure I'm not the first person to think of this. What do you guys think?

TiVo External Storage

Fri, 08/31/2012 - 19:49
I have a TiVo premier and I bought a GoFlex External Hard drive. I have a USB/eSATA cord that I use to connect the two, but TiVo doesn't seem to recognize anything is plugged in. Does anybody know if it's possible to connect the two or not?

The only reason I'm doing it this way and not using the desktop or just connecting my computer to the tv is that my crappy computer is old and overheats when I do that. It seems to tolerate transfers to the external drive, but not the tivo. :/

Where is TiVo?

Down grade 500GB from 2TB

Fri, 08/31/2012 - 18:24
A wile ago when I got my TiVo Premiere I used Jmfs Live CD to copy the 500GB drive to a 2TB drive. It worked very good for all that time I had it.

Now I got a 4 tuner HD TiVo that came with a 2TB drive. So I don't need the Premiere any more and I want to use the 2TB drive out of it for backups.

So I copied the 2TB to the 500GB and Jmfs Live CD said error when it got to the 500GB part. I turned it off and put it in my Premiere. It worked. But seen all the videos. I am sure not all would work. So I ran the clear and delete everything. Set it up and it still sees it as a 2TB drive even though it's on a 500GB.

Is there some command I can run to tell it it's a 500GB and not a 2TB drive?

To bad they don't make a instant cake for the TiVo Premiere.

O yes. I used the 500GB for other things so it did not have the TiVo Premiere on it any more.

Channel changing S2-DCT2244

Fri, 08/31/2012 - 16:04
I have a Tivo Series-2 hooked up to a Motorola DCT2244 via serial cable, this has worked flawlessly for three years up until a month or so ago. The tivo commands the correct channel and the 2244 box changes there, then immediately shifts a channel up/down. :confused:

I live in Seattle with Comcast service.


When does TiVo typically release brand new hardware?

Fri, 08/31/2012 - 15:37
My triple play pricing on Cablevision (ugh) is about to end and I am going to switch to a fios triple play bundle. Thought it'd be a great time to go back to TiVo. Was planning on getting an XL4 and Stream, but then it occurred to me that I'd hate to do that and then a month later find out that a whole new series of (better or more integrated) TiVo hardware was being released.

I know no one outside of TiVo knows for sure, but are they somewhat Apple-like in their annual predictability? If so, when does that point to new flagships?


Series 3 - constant "Powering up" reboot cycle

Fri, 08/31/2012 - 15:26
I've had my S3 since they came out. It's been running like a champ.

Until a couple of weeks ago, it started having problems booting up. I think on the third try it finally started up. But then the next day, it was stuck on "Powering Up..." screen. Several attempts to powerdown/restart were not successful.

I've been around Tivos long enough to know when my hard drive failed. So I ordered a new HD upgrade from Weakknees, which arrived today. 5 minutes later it was installed.

Same problem. Constant "powering up.." reboot cycle every 2-4 minutes or so.

What next? Is this a repairable problem? This box has lifetime, and I'd really like to get it working to avoid "upgrading" to a Tivo Premier.
