Can't get Hulu or Netflix to work

Wed, 07/11/2012 - 19:12
Hi all, just set up a couple of Premieres over the past week. Everything so far is great except I cannot get Hulu or Netflix to work. I have spent hours on the phone and online with Tivo with no results.

Netflix just goes to the red screen for while, then says can't connect.

Hulu never gives me a device code on either unit, just says "loading" forever. If I enter my username/pass it never goes past the "waiting" button. The Hulu sample videos do load fine, if that means anything.

Amazon video and Youtube both work flawlessly.

Netflix and Hulu both work fine on our desktops and laptops.

I have a Fortigate 200 firewall running in NAT mode, 6 mb (tested) dsl running of a modem in bridge mode. Policies are set pretty basic, any internal allowed any policy any destination. I have watched the firewall log while Netflix connects, saw multiple successful connections, no denies, no timeouts, yet it still errors out.

It's like something is not going through at the authentication phase or something. I'm at a loss, I think Tivo is as well. Any ideas? Thanks.

So You Think You Can Dance "Top 20 performance" 7/11/2012 *spoilers*

Wed, 07/11/2012 - 19:03
Top 20 group performance.

2 boys and 2 girls will leave next week.

Witney 1-855-GO-HER-01 and Chehon 1-855-GO-HIM-01 - Latin - Louis Van Amstel - I thought she outperformed him but she should've since its close to her style.

Tiffany 1-855-GO-HER-02 and George 1-855-GO-HIM-02 - Comtemporary - Sonya Tayeh - Very nice performance by the both of them. I liked it.

Janaya 1-855-GO-HER-03 and Brandon 1-855-GO-HIM-03 - Hip hop - Napitabs - I liked it. Not bad.

Alexa 1-855-GO-HER-04 and Daniel 1-855-GO-HIM-04 - Jazz - Sean Cheeseman - Difficult performance. They did a good job.

Amber 1-855-GO-HER-05 and Nick 1-855-GO-HIM-05 - Ballroom - Jason Gilkison - Thought they both did really well.

Amelia 1-855-GO-HER-06 and Will 1-855-GO-HIM-06 - Hip Hop - Napitabs - Looked more like a jazz routine. It was a cute little performance and they did it well.

Janelle 1-855-GO-HER-07 and Dareian 1-855-GO-HIM-07 - African Jazz - Sean Cheeseman - It was alright for me. I like Janelle hopefully its good enough for her to get through.

Eliana 1-855-GO-HER-08 and Cyrus 1-855-GO-HIM-08 - Broadway - Tyce Diorio - They both did very good. He was good too learning his first choreography.

Audrey 1-855-GO-HER-09 and Matthew 1-855-GO-HIM-09 - Contemporary - Travis Wall - This was the best of the night for me so far. Very good.

Lindsay 1-855-GO-HER-10 and Cole 1-855-GO-HIM-10 - Paso Doble - Jason Gilkinson - Another very strong performance. They left the best 2 for last.

A few basic questions

Wed, 07/11/2012 - 15:22
Hello, I am in the process of building a new home. I have been with DirecTV for 10+ years (have always used the DirecTV DVR's) and am going to be switching to Comcast when we move in. I have heard that the Comcast DVR's are junk, so i'm going to get 2 TiVo DVR's for our two TV's. Here are a couple questions I have:

1- What exactly do I need to connect both TiVo boxes so I can see and view the recorded shows on each box. I will have both units connected to my router, is that good enough?

2- Can each unit see the other unit, or can you only watch recorded shows on another TV from one specified unit? My DirecTV DVR's could all see each other and you could watch any recorded show on any unit. I'm hoping TiVo works the same way.

3- Only 1 coax is required even though you can have up to 4 tuners (with the high end model), correct?

Help me resolve decision to move from ActionTec to Airport Extreme

Wed, 07/11/2012 - 15:00
I recently had FIOS setup at my home. In my garage is the ONT and a cable line is run from the ONT to the ActionTec router in the basement. I'd like to remove the ActionTec from the equation, by running an Cat6e cable direct from the ONT to the Apple Airport Extreme Base Station. That will serve as the hub for my wired, wireless setup. I've got wired Cat6e from the basement to my (2) Premiere XL's. I also have (2) TiVo HD's, which currently do not have a wired connection, outside of a coaxial cable.
  1. If I remove the ActionTec, will this affect my TiVo's in any way?
  2. I've seen references to MOCA. Can someone explain in layman's terms how/why I might use that? Is there a way to get an Internet connection from coaxial with an adapter?

If anyone can offer up any advice, I'd welcome it. Thanks in advance.

Switching from Directv to Comcast and TiVO

Wed, 07/11/2012 - 14:58
Didn't see much recent info on this, so I’m interested in a current comparison. I had cable way back, and then Directivos up through Series 2, more than a few years ago. Currently have HR20 sat receivers, and full bore DTV packages.

What I had forgotten is that Comcast has different offerings in different areas, apparently. I had started looking around when DTV lost Viacomm last night, and was pleasantly surprised that where I live, Oakland CA, has some stuff that Comcast didn't list on their national website, like Fox Soccer in HD, SyFy in HD, and I think a few more. Am I correct in that?

I'm wondering what I should look out for in making the switch. I think I've got old coax running around parts of the house; does that need to be upgraded? do I have to get an installer (I could solder on new coax connections, if that's all there is to it)? And what services do I have to pay for with Comcast: on their site they list "digital service" and "HD service" and something for locals, but I couldn't understand what I'd need to order if I were to get two Premieres. Should I just buy the TiVos and then contact Comcast?

Any advice appreciated.

Wow, this season sure started with a lot of changes.

Jai is dead! Drat, I'll miss him.

Annie has a new boss. That will be interesting. I'm not crazy about Joan and Arthur so I'm hoping we'll see less of them.

Censoring?

Ethernet "Unplugged"

Wed, 07/11/2012 - 10:18
Can anyone solve a mystery? My Tivo ethernet connection is firmly connected to my router. Nothing loose. Cables have been tested and working properly and the pins are fine. Tivo software is up to date.

It works fine for a short period of time. However, after 4 or 5 days, I notice that my programming has not updated and I check to see what is wrong. It says that my ethernet cable is unplugged -- but it is not! It is still firmly connected and I have not done anything with the system.

I go to "replug" the ethernet connection and it works again.

Specs: Tivo Series 3
Router: Apple Airport Extreme
Connection: Ethernet
Cabling: Cat 5e

Anyone have any suggestions on how to stop this annoying problem?

Time limit on edits to posts

Wed, 07/11/2012 - 07:54
It would be helpful if, after a period of time, the forum software disallowed edits or deletions of posts. Say, 15 or an hour. This would stop the situation you see in Happy Hour now where a user is deleting his old posts, or editing the text out of them.

Thanks.

Was watching a channel not on cox's lineup this morning

Wed, 07/11/2012 - 07:42
I just had the strangest thing ever happen. Apparently I was watching a channel that does not exist on my lineup this morning.

When I turned my TV on this morning a movie was on that I liked. It wasn't in HD, but rather was letter boxed so I figured I would hit guide, find out what channel it is on and go and tune into the HD Version. My TiVO was telling me I was on channel 319, (This History Channel in Spanish - my tivo for what ever reasons likes to try to record suggestions from this channel even though I don't get it.) I went through the guide of all the movie channels, HBO, Cinemax and what not and I could not find the movie that was playing what so ever. It had to be a premium channel as it was commercial free. At the end of movie it was playing MAX logo's and advertising what's on tonight. Then another movie started. Only, it wasn't the same movie that was on max and max HD! When I switched back to 319 I was back to History in Spanish I was back to not authorized.

Going to Cinemax.com, I found that lineup for the channel I had apparently been watching, it was @MAXHD. By going into my channel list I was able to see there was a @max on 225 that was not selected, and added that one to my line up. This channel is playing the same line up, but wasn't letterboxed.

I wonder what all that was about. maybe cox was testing the HD channel and things got screwy? @maxhd is not in the lineup listed on cox's page.

"Trust us with your life" new improv show.

Wed, 07/11/2012 - 06:12
Picked up by one of the big three networks it's another try at "Who's line is it..." improv with a couple of new wrinkles.

In this case it's hosted by Fred Willard and Colin Mochrie, Wayne Brady and Greg Proops are back plus there's one rotating performer. Next week will be Ricky Gervais.

A really neat feature is a thing they call the sideways wall. Hard to describe, the performers lie down and are shot from an overhead camera, the effect is really neat. For example, a guest last night was Serena Williams and poking fun the guys played tennis on the wall. While laying on their sides on the wall they rolled the ball to one another and it appeared to be floating to the opposing player.

The second of the two back to back half hours shows featured two of the Osbourne kids and that was entertaining as well.

Hopefully this will get picked up in the fall.

Volume

Wed, 07/11/2012 - 05:49
I have a TIVO HD and the volume from it is very much lower than that of the TV and my Direct TV TIVO. I use the volume settings suggested in the FAQ pages. It has always been like this , but it is now more noticable with a new TV.
Any ideas?

Thanks

HDMI stops working

Wed, 07/11/2012 - 04:02
I got my refub TiVo Premiere today. I hooked it up with an HDMI cable I already had hooked up on the tv. As the unit is booting up the "Please Wait" and "Almost There" screens show. But when it changes after that my TV just says "Invalid format".

I don't have a real HD signal going to the tivo. I have a HD antenna but its really weak.

Is this a problem with the TV a setting I can change on it or is this a problem with the HDMI output

Playback & My Recording Mgmt Issues

Tue, 07/10/2012 - 23:55
Recently as I attempt to playback my recordings the system begins to automatically delete them, I unable to cancel the deletion, and when I attempt to recover them that menu screen appears to automate and permanently delete them before I can cancel that action as well. What is going on and how can I fix it? This issue is making the recording function useless.:down:

In my shows it shows only 22% of the space is being used.

Tivo not excepting remote commands

Tue, 07/10/2012 - 21:52
I have a Tivo HD Series 3.
Just about every other day we will switch from cable to the Tivo and the remote will not work.

Just to confirm….
We get the amber light when a button is pushed but we only get a ‘bonk’ sound.
The remote works fine on all other devices, no problem EVER on anything else.
I have tried both our universal and the Tivo remote.
This is the only remote we have in the room (other than testing the Tivo remote) at all times so no chance of a button being stuck.
There is nothing blocking the view and no interference.

We always end up unplugging the Tivo and letting it boot back up.
We don’t have any other problems that night until we flip back over to the Tivo another night and it happens again.

Any answers out there?

Thanks,
Debbie

New Coach with you!

When shopping Coach factory outlet online. See so news: The economy is showing signs of life again – that’s the good news. The bad news is that unemployment is still at historical highs and if you’re one of the 13 million Americans still struggling to find a job, or wanting to switch jobs, a lot of your applications are probably being swallowed up by the “the black hole.”That’s when you send in a job application and never receive any follow-up from the company. It’s probably one of the most frustrating parts of looking for a new job. In fact, according to a recent article in the Wall Street Journal, only 25 out of 100 applications ever get looked at by companies.
Now Coach factory outlet, a remarkable new service is helping job seekers instantly track almost every application they submit so they actually know what’s going on. It’s called StartWire.com and it lets job seekers track their applications, including status updates, on whether or not their applications have been reviewed, dismissed, or are still pending. But, it does a lot more than that. In fact, it’s the first project management tool for the job search process--and its already making a huge difference to thousands of job seekers. How it works? When you fill out a job application via a company website, you’ll typically get an auto confirmation email from the company, thanking you for applying. And then, the waiting begins.
StartWire however, Coach outlet online has linked to more than 5, 600 employers across the country and receives online updates on job applications for every one of their members. It updates you on the status of your application every time you log into your account, through email, or even via text message. Even if a company you applied to doesn’t offer auto updates online, you can still track the job using StartWire. By allowing you to connect your job hunt to your Facebook and LinkedIn accounts, it can notify you if you have any connections related to the company that you can ask for help with your application. Networking referrals are the quickest way to score job interviews, and increase your chances of getting hired by a whopping 300 percent. StartWire is simple to navigate, providing color-coded reporting that makes it easy to see the status of your applications: active, stalled, or no longer in the running.
