tivo broke and lit up like a christmas tree

Fri, 09/28/2012 - 19:10
our tivo is showing a blue light on top of a red light on the right hand side of the front display. it is not doing anything. no welcome screen no nothing. earilier it worked for an hour or so, long enough to watch a movie from our previously recorded. at the end of the movie it froze and has displayed the lights on the front and nothing on the tv screen. anyone have any ideas?

Best handbrake settings for Tivo?

Fri, 09/28/2012 - 18:25
Anybody here know the best GUI settings for Handbrake/Tivo Premiere?

I have several recordings that I am working with. I started by editing them with Video Redo to strip out some unwanted content. The output files are basic Mpeg files.

I would like to use Handbrake to convert these mpeg files to .264 Mp4 files.

After I convert them to .264, then I would like to transfer them back onto the Premiere and play them.

I have tested this a bit. The h.264 output video files play smooth and good on the Tivo premiere. The sound also works just fine.

However...... there seems to be some sort of issue with the frame size. That is, when I load the .264 files onto the Premiere, some unwanted black bars are showing up on the sides. What can I do to make the black bars go away? I want the video to fill up the whole screen.

FYI...... the source files that I am working with are standard def. The original frame size is 528x480.

Thanks!

TiVo Branded Wireless G Adapter

Fri, 09/28/2012 - 15:39
I have a "TiVo Branded Wireless G Adapter" that I got with a recent Premiere Elite purchase. My equipment cabinet has wired Ethernet so I don't need it and I'm willing to give it away to someone who can use it for the cost of shipping.

Fox News Suicide

Fri, 09/28/2012 - 14:47
So I am at work and we just watched something crazy.

There is a high speed chase in Arizona. The guy is driving a newer model SUV. The SUV looks like it ran out of gas so the guy bails. As he is running from the cops he gets behind a bush.

This is where it gets crazy. he starts messing with soemthing that we can't see (viewpoint is from an overhead helicopter cam. He then puts the object to his head and falls over.

:eek:

Fox immediately cuts to a commercial break and it takes me and my coworkers about 5 seconds to realize what we had just seen. I t was a little freaky.

Afterwards Shepherd Smith comes back on air and apologizes that Fox did not hit its delay button and time and did not intend for us to see that.

:(

I feel bad for having seen it now.

Boardwalk Empire not in search results

Fri, 09/28/2012 - 12:41
I just got the new Tivo Premiere Elite. I also just got new Comcast service as I just moved. Boardwalk Empire isn't showing up in my search results for me to get a Season Pass. When I go to Live TV I see that I am getting my HBO channels.

I know on my Tivo HD XL I had to tell it what premium channels I am subscribing to. Do I need to do the same thing with my Tivo Premiere Elite? It didn't ask me to do that in my Guided Setup.

"Video on Demand": Can't See Hulu+ and NetFlix Doesn't Work

Fri, 09/28/2012 - 11:05
"Video on Demand": Can't See Hulu+ and Netflix Doesn't Work.

I have a very-very old single-def TV and a Tivo Premier. All of this stuff worked beautifully together last night.

This morning I was watching Hulu+ through PlayOn and didn't notice any problems until I tried to access the Tivo/Netflix interface about a half hour ago.

I can watch both Hulu+ and Netflix through PlayOn. But cannot see Hulu+ option at all through Tivo "Video On Demand". I get an error when trying to watch Netflix through Tivo "Video on Demand": "An unexpected error has occurred, either the Netflix service is unavailable, or there was a network error. Please try accessing Netflix again. If you are still having trouble, go to www.tivo.com/support for help.".

Has something changed relative to Tivo "Video on Demand" since last night??

Thanks.

new HD replacement local

Fri, 09/28/2012 - 11:00
So diagnosing my constant rebooting Tivo HD this weekend, and assuming it is a Hard drive problem, I want to be able to run to microcenter or the like to pick up a drive vs ordering and waiting a few days. Online I dont see any WD EARS/EURS on microcenter site, just regular caviar greens that seem to have a different serial. Are there other know good 2 TB HDs that people have used that I can look for locally?

thanks!

Tivo Boop/Beep Sounds work sometimes

Fri, 09/28/2012 - 10:05
I've seen other posts but I still need explanation. I had an LCD TV connected to my Premier Tivo with an HDMI cable and the beeps/boops worked great. Last night I bought a new LED TV, also hooked up with the same HDMI cable and now I don't hear any Beeps/Boops - however they DO work when going into the setup menus (the old non-HD menus). They don't make sound for fast forward, or my shows etc, but the old menus like settings etc DO make the sounds. I'm a bit confused as to why, and is there anyways to fix this. I, unlike a lot of people, like the sounds!

Tivo HD Vs S3 Lifetime Value

Fri, 09/28/2012 - 09:36
So I spoke with Tivo this week, want to try to remove some units, I have 5 at the moment, Margaret gave me the option of adding lifetime to all of my Series 3 units, HD included. If I add lifetime to these units I am trying to figure out if I should just update the S3 to an HD on the account and then add the lifetime, or keep the S3 and add the lifetime, what would be worth more money for resale?

My overall goal is to sell off the lifetime units to get a a P4 or an XL4.

Thanks guys and gals ;)

Grey's Anatomy Season 9 Thread

Fri, 09/28/2012 - 08:51
Anyone still watching?

We watched the entire 8 previous seasons this past summer. We finished up mid August, so at least we did not have to wait long for the season premiere.

I'm really not sure yet how I felt about the episode.

But I noticed a few familiar faces in the new interns - Smash from Friday Night Lights, and the friend from Big Love (I don't know any of their names). I'm assuming they will be regulars. They lost a lot of cast, so they'll need some new regulars.

Any word on the release of the TiVO Minis?

Fri, 09/28/2012 - 08:22
I currently have an S2, S3 & 2 dual tuner TiVo Premieres. Comcast has been playing games with me for the cable cards & I'm tired of their fees so I am anxiously awaiting for the TiVo "mini" to come out. Therefore, I can hopefully dump/sell all my current TiVos and then simply get a Premiere 4 or XL4 along with several "minis". All of the equipment will then be running off one single M cable card.

Therefore, I don't have to worry about all these extra "outlet fees" Comcast has been throwing on me. Not to mention how I will then hopefully also get OnDemand at some point on at least the main Premiere. At which point I can also truly be able to dump ALL Comcrap related hardware.

I see how the TiVo "stream" finally got released. Any word on when the "mini" might get released here? I'm hoping before Xmas & maybe even before Thanksgiving, but is that being too optimistic?

Fringe is back tonight!!

Nice article in the NY Times that sums up about how I feel about the show:

pytivo: will a SSD in laptop speed it up

Fri, 09/28/2012 - 08:12
some videos i transfer from the laptop to the tivo take hours..no idea why..some take minutes only

anyway, just wondering is the hard drive on my laptop the bottleneck as to why the vid doesnt transcode faster? if so then i'm assuming an SSD would make a measureable improvement toward faster conversion?

i was thinking of putting an SSD in the CD bay using a converter and leaving in the orginal HD for standard storage needs. (i know SSD is dropping in price so i dont need the full 320 drive in my laptop 'replaced'

Best disposition for old series @

Fri, 09/28/2012 - 06:27
I have an old series 2 (regular old Tivo, not a Direct TV box). I long ago changed out the fans (which were ridiculously loud) and installed a larger HD. As noted, this was a long time ago, and I don't recall much about details. This box is taking up space and I am directed by my wife to make it go away. My biggest 2 concerns: 1. Security: I don't want any of my personal data being misused; 2. Ensuring it gets used well. But, these are balanced with: 3. time. I don't have a lot of time to invest in this. My default option at present, for security reasons, is to pull the HD and give the rest of the gear to a local electronics recycling facility. Time is a BIG factor. And, it's quite hard for me to get to USPS during the day to ship heavy stuff, so eBay is a less attractive option, given the likely return.

I did some searching (of course) prior to posting this, but I don't have a good solution to my conundrum.

Thanks for weighing in.

Parks & Recreation "Soda Tax" - 9/27

Fri, 09/28/2012 - 00:50
Wait, don't tell me, let me guess - either:

(a) The entire rest of the season is going to be about Leslie's campaign to beat the recall vote against her, or

(b) They push the reset button by having Leslie get recalled and think up some way to get April back to Pawnee.
