On demand in Adelphia Areas on Premiere

Sat, 01/26/2013 - 08:30
I have TiVo premiere and live in Salisbury MA which was an old Adelphia area. Well the towns around me are not Adelphia areas and have on demand available to them. I was curious if anyone has heard if these areas will ever get on demand available to them or where these areas are small are they going to skip them. Thanks.

More Apps

Sat, 01/26/2013 - 08:09
With comcast launching their "X1 Platform" guide they have a "Sports App's" and other Apps like Facebook and Twitter. Will TIVO add anything like this to our software in the future?

xFinity on Tivo has less programming than xFinity Andriod\Apple app streaming

Sat, 01/26/2013 - 04:52
Today I just noticed that xFinity on my Andriod tablet has significantly more movies & series than xFinity on TiVo. Example xFinity on the my tablet includes all of HBO's TV series, such as Sex and the City, Band of Brothers, Sopranos. On Tivo, xFinity only includes currently airing series.

I do subscribe to HBO.

Can anyone explain why xFinity on TiVo has less programming than what I can get on my Andriod tablet, or explain to me what I might be doing wrong on my Tivo.

Banshee - Season 1 (spoilers)

Sat, 01/26/2013 - 02:07
There was a thread on the pilot episode here:


But since there was no thread on last week's episode, I thought it would be better to just start a season thread.

One thing I have not seen mentioned is that all three episodes so far have about 15 seconds of conclusion (epilogue) after all the credits have rolled. Nothing critical to the plot, but probably worth a look.

Officer Kelly looks familiar to me. I looked up the actress, Trieste Kelly Dunn, but I don't think I've seen her in any show before, except maybe her appearance on one episode of Fringe. Maybe she reminds me of Jill Flint from Royal Pains.

In "Meet the New Boss", at the funeral of the Senator's son, Hood (I don't remember anyone saying his real name) gives the Senator a long, strange look. Did I miss something? Does Hood know him? What was that about?

Wow, Lili Simmons is amazingly hot as the young Amish girl, Rebecca. Is Rebecca supposed to be under 18? I was surprised Hood boned her a second time and did not even ask her age. Hood is quite the cad.

I don't like Anna / Carrie at all. It seems she did not even write Hood a letter in prison for 15 years. I can see that she might not want to visit him, since it could be dangerous for her. But she could have at least written. Then when he gets out, she lies to him about the diamonds, and then it seemed like she was actually thinking about turning Hood in to her father. And it seems like a good bet that Deva is actually Hood's daughter and Anna has not told Hood about it, although it seems that he suspects.

It does not seem that Hood is going to be able to keep up this Sheriff charade for much longer. Besides going around beating up everyone in sight and generally not acting at all like a lawman, now his fight video is getting posted on youtube, so Rabbit and who knows who else will soon be coming to town.

I wonder if Hood is smart enough to try to get Rabbit and Proctor going after each other. It seems like, short of murder, Hood's only chance to beat either of those guys is to get them to take each other out.

How to Minimize Signal Loss with So Many Devices?

Sat, 01/26/2013 - 00:47
Picture quality using only a Tivo HD with cable card & tuning adapter works without issue if that is all that is connected. Channel meter lists the various channels at 80 something.

However, I also have a cable modem and a thingy for cable telephone service. If I use the splitter they installed, the Tivo signal meter can go down to the 40's, and the picture can become tiled and break up. Not always but enough for it to be annoying. Obviously, the internet connections drops too often when the signal is this low. I have another cable line on another floor and the signal loss is a little better. Channel meter might go to the 40's as well when split, but at least the picture does not break up as often.

Hence the question: How can I mimimize signal loss so that I can use the line for both tv and modem/telephone? I would be happy with one line getting tv + cable modem, while the other line gets the tv + telephone adapter. Am I going to have get the cable company to install a line for each device?

Thanks for reading this and for any advice that you can give me.

TiVo placement question

Fri, 01/25/2013 - 23:07
I just took the plunge and purchased my first TiVo which is due to arrive soon. That said, I was considering placing it on top of my soundbar pedestal (SpeakerCraft CS3). My concern is if the vibrations from the soundbar could be harmful to the TiVo. I could also place the Tivo on a lower shelf, however it would then be out of line of site and may cause remote control/IR signal issues.

Any thoughts?

Spartacus:War of the Damned S3E01 "Enemies of Rome" 1/25/13

Fri, 01/25/2013 - 21:49
Good start to the season.

The opening scene with the blood panning to the boob was an amusing, likely unintentional, take on the "blood and boobs" nickname :)

I think they have set the season up nicely, with a decent opponent for Spartacus.

TiVo tried to cheat me

Fri, 01/25/2013 - 21:33
Anyone else buy a TiVo Premiere with the 3 Months Free offer? My first two months were free, but they just billed my credit card for the third month. I called customer support and they'll credit my card back for the erroneous charge but I was wondering if it was an honest mistake or if they're doing this to others also?

Tivo series 2 with FIOS

I have Tivo Series 2 with FIOS. The FIOS box times out and turns itself off, so I end up missing shows my family wanted to see. How can I prevent this?


Converting .Tivo file

Fri, 01/25/2013 - 19:49
I need to get the .tivo file to something Adobe premiere pro can edit like a .mp4

I have tried SUPER that i saw someone said to use, would only kick out a 10 second file.. Also bought Tivo Plus but that would only convert the files to mobile products i want the files to be 720p (1280x720)

Anyone know how to do this?

Determining the length of an episode

Fri, 01/25/2013 - 19:43
On my other Tivos, I was always able to tell how long Tribune was telling them a show was. There as a place that had how many minutes the show took. I have not been able to figure out where to look for this on the Premier.

It is helpful to know when I need to pad FX shows for example.

Anyone else seeing this?

Fri, 01/25/2013 - 19:36
OK this isn't a big deal but I've noticed that recently when I start and MRS from my upstairs TiVo to my downstairs one the show always starts 1 minute into the recording. Most shows don't start exactly on time, and if they do a few click of IR gets you back to the start, so it's not a big deal. But it's odd. And the really odd part is it doesn't happen on every show. Although it does seem to be happening on the majority lately. And for the record these are brand new recorded shows. They've never been played before so it's not remembering a pause point.


Show return to beginning while recording

Fri, 01/25/2013 - 19:32
On my Tivo 2 and my Tivo HD if I started watching a show while it was recording and then went to live TV, when I returned to watch the show, It would start from where I left off and have "resume playing" in the menu. I have noticed that my Tivo Premier goes back to the beginning of the show and has "start" in the menu. This will be real inconvient if I want to watch other shows during Super Bowl game. Is there some option I can set?

change season pass from hd to sd

Fri, 01/25/2013 - 17:23
Is there an easy way to move shows on season pass between HD and SD? (or channel change for the same show name)

It's kind of painful to create new season pass and delete the old one, and then move the priority to the original place.

Just wondering if there was an easier way.

Project Runway Season 11 - Teams! - all season thread - spoilers to date!

Fri, 01/25/2013 - 15:37
I watched this episode at lunch today (anything to drown out the beeping).

I liked it and I liked the team idea. I think this will be an interesting season.

I also agree with the judges picks for winners and losers. So we are off to a good start!

Hughes GXCEBOT tuner problems

Fri, 01/25/2013 - 13:50
Disclaimer: This will be lengthy, my apologies

I've got a Hughes GXCEBOT DirecTiVo box with two tuners, purchased over a decade ago, and it's been in constant use since then. The only changes I've made to it from stock was to put a bigger HD in it way back just after purchase.

Back in the day, I had an oval dish with a dual-LNB output connected to the unit. But a couple of years ago, I got an HD set for one room, and DTV put an H24 in for it. They changed out the dish at that time and installed an oval dish. It's got a single LNB device on it, with four cables coming from it into the house. Three of those cables are used. One to the HD box, and two to the Hughes DirecTiVo.

About two weeks ago, I started having problems with the Hughes box. I'd wake up in the morning and find the system "searching for Satellite signal" on both tuners. I was able to "fix" the issue the first time with a reboot. It happened again a couple of days later, and that time it took two reboots to fix. Another day or so passed and the problem returned. This time no amount of reboots fixed the problem, so I set about to seeing if my cables were good.

In the course of troubleshooting, I found that if I switched around the cables at the grounding block, I could get a signal on one of the tuners. As it was getting late, I left the unit running overnight with just one tuner. The following day, I swapped the cables around on the grounding block some more, and was able to get both tuners up and running, with the HD system unaffected. However, I noted that if I pulled the power from the HD box, or disconnected the Sat cable running to it, I'd lose signal on both tuners of the Hughes SD box.

Very odd, so I thought I was having an LNB problem. I called DTV and for $50 bucks, they sent out a tech who swapped out the LNB. Well, since I'm posting here, you all already know that the problem wasn't fixed. In fact, I haven't been able to get both tuners back up and running. I can get one tuner going at a time (doesn't matter which), but as soon as the other one is connected, both are dead in the water. The HD set remains unaffected, but still has the oddity that if I power it down, or disconnect it, I won't get anything on either tuner of the Hughes.

As for signal strength, it's fine by all measurements, and all cables test fine, so that's not the issue. However, if I look at the signal strength via the Hughes box, I'll see one of two things happening. Either the signal is there, and then it's not (alternating about once a second), or the signal is just plain missing from a set of transponders. Currently, I can get good signal on all the odd transponders, but zero signal (as seen by the Hughes box) on all the even transponders.

As part of the troubleshooting, the tech installed a multi-switch (unpowered) to see if that would help. It didn't. The multi-switch was removed.

As a last resort, the tech brought in an R16 box (which I was told was the equiv box, but DTV software, not TiVo), and hooked it up in place of the Hughes. The signal seen by the R16 looked right on the various transponders. (didn't seen real TV, because that would have required an activated card).

So, it seems that the problem is with my Hughes box. But what could it be?

Bother tuners work just fine on their own, and I was able to get the both working together up until the DTV tech replaced the LNB (although I haven't yet gone through all the combinations of switching cables around).

At the moment, I've set the Hughes box to use just one tuner, and it's working fine as-is, but I'd like to get the 2nd tuner back up and running. Remember, both tuners work fine on their own, just can't get them working together.

So, any ideas? I know there had been problems with caps in the past, but this doesn't seem to be the same problem. (or is it?)

Any ideas are appreciated. ...and thanks for reading this far. I know it was long-winded.

Premiere no longer recording suggestions .. any ideas?

Fri, 01/25/2013 - 13:47
Hi, folks ...

I moved a Tivo Premier box from Verizon FIOS (in Mass) to TWC (in Raleigh).

Ever since the move, Tivo hasn't recorded any suggestions.

Any ideas?
