YouTube,Slide Remote, and symbols

Mon, 09/17/2012 - 10:36
Tried using the Tivo Slide Remote to search for youtube videos the other night. Almost all of the punctuation symbols were not working for me. Semicolon is the only one that i recall working. I was needing to use the colon, but it was always inserting a semicolon.

Trying the !, *, #, also gave incorrect results (a number if i recall correctly)

Hell On Wheels - Purged Away With Blood - 9/16/12

Mon, 09/17/2012 - 10:01
Another good episode IMO in a very good season. This was #6 and I think at the end they said "3 more episodes". So there is only 9 or am I (which is likely) confused?

Any talk about future "smart" enhancements to the TiVo app/ Stream.

Would be great to have a season pass for offloading (downloading) shows automatically.

Premier XL4 vs Uverse vs DirecTV

Mon, 09/17/2012 - 02:44
Ok, my Tivo indeed appears to be dying. Now, I have to decide whether to get new hardware that commits me to two years of DirecTV, or go with Uverse or Atlantic Broadband.

I can transfer my lifetime sub to DirecTV, but would get a crippled Tivo based on hardware from 2004. I can get their generic dvr with multi-room support, but the FF,RWD, and Replay are sluggish from what I hear.

I could go with Uverse. I hear they have the best SD pq, so I might not really need HD expect for Game of Thrones. It's not like John Stewart's jokes are any funnier in HD. That means I have a four tuner, multi-room dvr that isn't too bad. Hopefully it has a more responsive UI than DirecTV.

Finally, I don't remember anymore why I hated cable so much when I switched to DirecTV in 1997. Ever since I got my DirecTivo unit in 2000, I've been pretty happy. Now Atlantic Broadband works with (uncrippled) Tivo and has triple play bundles that look attractive, even after adding the cost of a lifetime Tivo or two. The calculus seems to have shifted back to cable.

Yeah, there is a question in there somewhere. I'm a leaving something out? Is Uverse worth trying first?

Premier XL & Netflix. Signin w/remote?

Sun, 09/16/2012 - 22:22
Haven't used Netflix for a while. Wanted to watch something. Went to Netflix. It asked me to sign in using my (non-slide) Tivo remote.
Is this possible? I looked through the manual. Went back and forth several times. Never saw how to enter alpha characters. Did I just miss it?

As I remember, when I set up the service all I had to do was enter an activation code.

Is this what all the complaining is about?

I'm disgusted w/the Tivo program guide. I can get Netflix through my blu-ray.

Wondering if it's time to sell the Tivo, cancel Netflix, downgrade my internet, and buy the Channelmaster or "generic" HD dvr. With Me TV, Retro TV, Antenna TV, and This TV, PBS, and some local independent stations, I always have soemthing to watch.

Is my Tivo dying?

Sun, 09/16/2012 - 18:51
I have had TV reception problems. The signal flickers on and off and I sometimes get the message, "searching for signal..." DirecTV sent a tech out here and he changed the LNB and the multi-switch. That helped a little, but the signal strength shows only 70-80% on satellite 2. The tech then swapped out the cables feeding tuner 1 and tuner 2 on my original DirecTivo box. It still showed the weak signal on satellite 2. The tech told me that means the problem is my tuner. Does that sound right?

Phone line needed?

Sun, 09/16/2012 - 16:35
Sorry if this has been answered before. I am thinking of giving a Tivo Series 3 OLED to my uncle. He will have only a cell phone and no internet service. He will have Charter cable service in SoCal and I would set it up w/ 2 Cable Cards.

Will he need a landline for guide updates or any other reason? I don't imagine that there will be any firmware updates any time soon? I can do a clear and delete before I give it to him. Will I be able to do guided setup w/o a landline?

Music/Photos not showing up on Tivo

Sun, 09/16/2012 - 14:59
I have always had my music folder and photos show up on my tivo, but now they are not there. I did change from DSL to Cable internet, and all 3 of my tivos see each other on the net, I can see all 3 tivos on my laptop, and I can download and upload tivo shows to my laptop (Windows) so I believe everybody is seeing everybody.

When I go into the tivo desktop settings it shows the IP address as something different than what it shows under my settings on my Tivo.
also the IP address on tivo desktop is grayed out so I can't seem to change it even if that is the problem, but I don't think it is, since I am downloading to desktop from all my tivos. FYI 3 Tivo premieres.

I've rebooted everything, tivos, router, usb wireless connections.

Any suggestions?

The season opener knocked it out of the park. Seth was a great host. Normally there's a few good skits and a few bad ones. I can't think of a single skit that was bad (some were a little weak, but not bad). You know it's a great episode when the weakest thing is Weekend Update.

A few comments though...

I had just seen the Gungnam Style video for the first time on Friday so I immediately knew what they were going for when Bobby came out. Originally I thought it was a cheesy move to take advantage of the popularity of the video, and it kind of was, but having Psy on it made it more legit. Plus Taran was a dead ringer for the guy in the yellow suit.

Seth was great. Loved his Ryan Lochte.

Download doesn't continue when app is running in the background.

Sun, 09/16/2012 - 13:35
If I start a download and then hit my iPads home button and play in another app, the TiVo download stops. Also it looks like if I turn the iPad off the download doesn't continue.

This doesn't seem right. I would think that downloads should continue in the background.

Is this how it is working for everyone else?

Antenna TV

Do I have to purchase a subscription to access Antenna TV and use the DVR functions with the TIVIO PREMIERE TIVO?



Store all videos on Tivo?

Sun, 09/16/2012 - 10:35
I am just coming back to Tivo after a hiatus. I am purchasing 2 Premieres and wanted to see if any of you have stored your entire video collections on your Tivo's? I have about 1TB of archived DVDs and shows on my home server, but if I put in a 2TB HD in each Tivo, could be stored there instead. I was thinking about not having to run Pytivo or streambaby then. Have any of you tried this? How does it work for browsing your shows? Thanks!

Shark Tank OAD 09/14/2012

Sun, 09/16/2012 - 10:17
I really don't like when the Sharks "collude". To me, it goes against the very premise of the show that the Sharks are supposed to feed on each other when there is a product/idea that is worthy.

I actually loved that coat check idea. I think it would be great for arenas and concerts.

I think it would be better if it was totally automatic so that you wouldn't have to employ anybody to run it.

Guided Setup for FiOS w/o CableCARD in place?

Sun, 09/16/2012 - 08:02
My cableco is currently RCN and my TiVoHD is running with a CableCARD (two S-cards, FWIW).

Tomorrow I am switching to Verizon FiOS for TV and internet.

Should/can I run GuidedSetup to bring in the Verizon lineup even though I won't have the Verizon CableCARD in place? It would be nice to have the lineup all ready so that once the FiOS tech has finished the install and put in the CableCARD I would be good to go, rather than having to spend an hour running Guided Setup before I can record things.

But for some reason I'm under the impression you have to have the new card in place to run GS. Maybe because GS shows you channel previews to help you verify you have the right lineup, and obviously it can't do that w/o a CableCARD in place?

If it can be done, I assume the procedure it to pop out the cards, then run Guided Setup to bring in the new lineup? And at that point the TiVo would obviously be useless for recording, though I could watch anything already recorded?

Sun, 09/16/2012 - 04:36
Yesterday, the Guangzhou Huadu District Shiling town of the fire station of law and order brigade, fire squadron, the Paul Smith outlet Paul Smith outlet police station in the area, Shiling (International) Leather City fire safety inspection.
