I read some about program, don't understand so much, where does shows, go, when transferred, do they go in a folders, that keeps them dated and labeled....like for instance, I was collecting all the law and order svu, and had banked quite a number of shows, till(not to program limit point) but so I could have them to burn to dvd in consecutive order.....(which I delete, in transfer, hard drive, and on tivo when burned to disc) ....yes, i need help, thanks in advance

Subscriber Fee Question

Thu, 05/31/2012 - 10:12
OK. So I just recently purchased a second Premiere XL. My question is if I buy a lifetime subscription on one, will I get the reduced monthly fee on the second, which I believe is 12.99?

I guess I could just call Tivo and ask them.

Any suggestions for this kind of season pass

Thu, 05/31/2012 - 10:10
I recently got a TiVo premiere and am enjoying it so far. I am familiar with TiVo (have an S2 & S3) so have done "season passes" with my other equipment.

Is there any way or suggestion on how to make my Premiere have a season pass to a show, but record the new episodes later in the night instead of recording them when they first air (usually 8-10pm).

I ask cause we generally wait till the next day to watch recorded material anyway, but would also like to have the dual tuner access during peak viewing times. And since networks generally run new episodes several times a night, I was hoping there was some way to get the TiVo to record them at a later time in the day (for example, after midnight).

I realize I could probably just set up a season pass on one of my other TiVos and then simply transfer/MRV it to the Premiere when ready to watch, but just wondering if this later recording request is something that can be done with a Premiere.

Series 3 & one cable card

Thu, 05/31/2012 - 09:29
I have a Series 3 HD TiVo (TCD648250) with lifetime. Its giving me some reboot issues and I think its the hard drive (see other post). I haven't had time to fully replace the hard drive (with a new image). Until then, I am using a TiVo Premiere I recently purchased & had a question concerning the cable cards for this S3 unit.

I know this S3 takes two cable cards and its also possible to have just one in it that will essentially make it a single tuner DVR. However, can it maybe also have unscrambled (HD & analog) channels on the other tuner? Kind of making it a 1.5 tuner DVR in a sense. Or is this not possible & the two types of tuners can't be mixed and matched.

Netflix audio problem

Thu, 05/31/2012 - 09:28
Ever since I received the new TiVo update I've had problems with Netflix. When I try to watch a program I usually have a perfect picture but it's running too fast (approx 1.10x speed) along with NO audio....very frustrating.

A few programs (approx 10% of my queue) play just fine.

I've tried deleting the "bad" programs than adding them again...no difference.

I'm not sure if this is a TiVo issue or a Netflix issue but the fact that it appeared immediately after the latest TiVo update makes me suspicious.

I've sent e-mail error messages to Netflix, but so far no improvement but it's only been a few hours.

Common Law - pilot episode

Thu, 05/31/2012 - 06:34
Is anyone else here watching this? I thought the show looked promising, and being on USA it automatically gets a few extra points. But it felt forced. The script was trying way too hard to be cutesy and invest the viewer into an established relationship. Especially grievous was the cop shooting the dancing balloon man with no regard to what was behind it.

I'll try another episode or two, but USA may have a dud on their hands.

Reducing Overshoot Correction

Thu, 05/31/2012 - 03:32
Per the Codes List Thread:

The Offset and Delay control the overshoot correction. Can somebody elaborate on the difference between Offset and Delay?

I'm looking to do a healthy reduction of my overshoot correction as after a FFx3 commercial skip I'm often looking at 20+ seconds of commercials after the correction.

Thanks,

TiVo Developer Program?

Wed, 05/30/2012 - 21:06
Is there any official email address, website, anything for third party developer contacts for TiVo? I've been looking, but turned up nothing so far. Not specifically for HME, I know that's probably something they don't promote anymore. Thanks.

Anyone having trouble with 'stuttering' on THR-22?

Wed, 05/30/2012 - 20:21
We're long-time DirecTV users, and have had a THR-22 for about two weeks. It occasionally 'stutters,' like its losing the stream, but usually recovers after 5-8 seconds. Video gets pixelated and audio drops pretty much completely.

I don't think it's poor signal strength--I've not noticed any problems on our other receivers, including an HR-34.

It doesn't happen a lot, but it's enough to be fairly annoying. It seemed to happen most often at first, and I thought maybe background processes were creating contention for disk or memory. It did seem to settle down, but has been happening more frequently again.

Thanks,
Heath

Wed, 05/30/2012 - 19:14
I was planning on an antec MX- 1 or Rosewill RX-358 V2 BLK enclosure(both self powered fan cooled esata) , And a Western Digital Caviar Green WD20EARX 2TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive. but after looking at newegg reviews, I don't think this drive is worth it. Any suggestions??

Switched to fios

Wed, 05/30/2012 - 17:14
I just switched to fios and now have a motorola cable box. I am no longer able to change channels using my tivo remote. I have a very old tivo, about 10 yrs old or so. What do I have to do to get the tivo working again. Thanks.

Now the fly in the ointment. Some DVR's won't pick up the last few minutes.

Time Warner Cable - Tuning Adpater Cable card - Showing random channels

Wed, 05/30/2012 - 15:41
I am having a very odd issue. TWC accidentally shut off my cable on friday. I was out of town. It was reactivated on Tuesday. when it was reactivate none of the HD SDV channels were working correctly, and MPEG 2 HD channels which work without the tuning adapter were showing random SD channels when the tuning adapter is hooked up.

TWC ALBANY CHANNEL LINEUP
EX: 1805 (TBS HD) shows Channel 13 (NBC SD). It does this on every channel above 1800. All the normal sd channels work on there correct channel numbers. The tuning adapter is a Cisco, and it shows the it has a solid light. The cable card is installed correctly.

I call time warner they think its the tuning adapter, I go exchange it for a different one, get home, hook it up, STILL the same issue. HD channels showing random SD channels. The weird part is if I take the thing adapter out of the setup these non SDV hd channels work without any issues.

EX: Tivo + ONLY CABLE CARD
1805 TBS HD show TBS HD correctly in MPEG-2

Ex: Tivo + Cable Card + Tuning Adapter = Channels not mapping correctly at all. TBS HD (1805) showing Channel 13 in SD.

So time warner came to my house today and replaced the cable card. Still the same issue. They have no idea whats wrong. They said its the Tivo, We've repeated the guide setup about 8 times, replaced the tuning adapter and cable card, and have rebooted the tiro multiple times.

I feel like we've done everything we can do. Please if anyone can help!

HARDWARE:
Tivo Premiere
Cable Card
Cisco STA1520 Tuning Adapter

FIOS DC Area - 501 No Guide Info

Wed, 05/30/2012 - 13:08
So apparently the Nationals games are being broadcasted on 501 since the O’s are being broadcasted on MASN. But you would not know that as there is no guide information provided for channel 501. Is the lack of guide information a TiVo problem or a FIOS problem?

"Cajun Pawn Stars" - fail?

Wed, 05/30/2012 - 12:15
History is running a Pawn Stars marathon, and they just did an ad for the upcoming "Cajun Pawn Stars" spin-off (which I hear Rick was royally ticked about when someone told him the network was doing it).

Looks like a poor man's rip off.

Anyone seen or heard any more details other than the commercial?

(It hasn't run prior to this, has it?)

Transfer Queue Blocked??

Wed, 05/30/2012 - 11:52
I have had 2 TiVo HDs and 1 TiVo S3 operating for several years connected to my home network via Ethernet cables. I regularly transfer programs between units with no problems. Yesterday, I upgraded my wireless router and set up a new network. While doing that, I apparently interrupted a transfer in progress from one of the HDs to the S3.

I then set up all 3 TiVos to work with the new network and successfully connected to the TiVo update site. I can see the other 2 machines on my Now Playing list, but when I try to transfer a program it tells me that it will be added to the list and transferred in turn. But nothing is showing up on the S3.

I suspect that the interrupted transfer is blockading the transfer queue. I tried restart for both machines and when that didn’t work unplugged and repowered-up both machines, but still no transfers. How can I free up my transfer path? To my knowledge, I don’t think there is any way to view – or clear out -- the transfer queue (is there?).

Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated. The wife wants her “Game of Thrones” on the TiVo HD. Help!

Food Network Star - All Season Thread

Wed, 05/30/2012 - 11:49
No thread yet? Well... there is now. :)

What do y'all think of the new format for the show? I'm enjoying it so far because I really like the increased interaction between the "mentors" and the contestants. I'm curious what will happen, though, if one of the celebrities loses all their team?

As far as the contestants... I don't have much of a favorite so far. They all seem kind of bland except for the young kid (Alton Brown Jr.). So I guess I'm rooting for him. :)

If the fat Asian guy says "Hand Crafted" one more time I'm going to pitch a shoe at the TV. :p

Giada's not much of a mentor. And that one woman freaking out because she was staring at her... that was some funny stuff!

So... am I the only one watching?

The Office, "Free Family Portrait Studio," 2012-05-10

No thread for the season finale?

I just watched the last four episodes last night. I like the development with David Wallace owning Dunder Mifflin. I assume that actor is back next year in the CEO role. Hopefully this means back to basics for the show.

At this point I don't remember what episode it was, but did anyone else notice the St. Paulie Girl sign in Ryan's cubicle?
