Exclusive to Best Buy?

Wed, 09/19/2012 - 21:43
Do anyone have any thoughts as to whether we'll see the device at other stores anytime soon? It seems that TiVo may have signed an exclusive deal with Best Buy, at least for the launch.

Searching for signal

Wed, 09/19/2012 - 21:21
Hello - I have a TIVO HD box and just got it hooked up with Comcast yesterday. Comcast put in a Motorola m card, but I can't see any channels - I can see the number of the channel, and the name like History channel, and even a blurb on the current show, but no actual picture. It then goes to a grey screen and the words "Searching for signal on cable in." I called TIVO and the had me look at all the settings, then the TIVO tech called Comcast while I was on the phone and they sent a signal to the cable card but nothing changed, so now I am stuck. I've looked at all the standard things that have been suggested on forums but still nothing works. TIVO and Comcast can't even figure it out together! Any ideas as to what else I can look at? Thank you.

Read-only access to a Tivo drive using Windows

Wed, 09/19/2012 - 18:28
We have a Tivo Premiere with a bad hard drive. I have removed the hard drive and mounted it in an old Windows PC. I have not yet tried to do anything more with the Tivo drive.

I want to only read the data on the Tivo drive. What forum should I use to ask about that? If anyone can help with the keywords to use to search for I am happy to do the searching and reading myself.

The thing I would most prefer to use is a Windows program that can read the Tivo data; at least the XML files. The second possibility would be to boot Linux using a VM under Windows. I think that computer already has at least one Linux that I can boot from a VM so I will try that unless someone here tells me not to try it.

If necessary, I could make a boot CD-Rom or flash drive to boot Linux from.

Any guidance will be appreciated. I will read the documentation or whatever if someone can help me find what to read. I have looked at the mfslive.org web site but it does not seem to be relevant but if it is then let me know.

FIOS Wireless N Network Adapter

Wed, 09/19/2012 - 17:18
Does anyone know a way to get the TIVO Adapter to work with a FIOS modem. The modem has a nonfuctioning WPS button! Obviously I can buy a wireless router with working WPS and chain it into the system, but I'd rather not do that.

And what about Windows?

Wed, 09/19/2012 - 13:43
Aside from android, there are lots of laptops and desktops and media PCs out there running Windows located in areas of the home without TV, a Windows client sure would be handy.

Buying TiVo Premiere

Wed, 09/19/2012 - 12:38
Well since I got fios I'm not too happy with their dvr (what a surprise)
so I've been looking at getting the the TiVo Premiere 45 hour one since I can also get ota channels. I have been reading of problems people with fios and the cable cards is this common?
Also by what I have found so far there is no easy way to upgrade the hard drive as could have been done with the zipper for directv tivos.
And one last thing is this the best tivo to buy or should I give up on ota channels and get one with 4 tuners?
Also would it be worth to buy the extended warranty?
I usually never do on anything except for the kids electronics, mp3 players, phones and stuff.


Interested in upgrading to Premiere: Questions

Wed, 09/19/2012 - 11:28

We currently have a TiVo HD XL and I'm interested in upgrading to a Premiere XL4. I've been reading through the FAQs and last couple months of threads, but there are some basic things I don't understand.

1) Can I transfer the existing subscription from my HD to the XL? I don't want two devices/subscriptions. If so, what is the process?

2) Can I transfer the shows on the HD to the XL?



Universal Remote Control?

Wed, 09/19/2012 - 10:38
I recently bought a URC WR7 Universal Remote Control and was really pleased to have been able to put four or five remotes into a drawer. Price was right $22.00, and the family was happy as well.

I then got tired of my crummy Comcast DVR, and decided to get a Premiere. Now I'm stumped as to what to do about the remote situation. The TiVo remote is clearly the one to use for the DVR, but it's pretty limited in terms of what it can do in terms of controlling the TV, and (I believe) can't help at all with the DVR.

Anyone have the WR7 and suggestions on mapping out the TiVo remote on it? Or am I going to have to go back to a pile of remotes on the coffee table (unless I buy another universal remote...which I'd rather not do!).


Best time to upgrade

Wed, 09/19/2012 - 10:02
I like the Premiere TiVos, but I upgraded about a month before the premiere came out. Now I am again looking for a new TiVo, but it seems like the Premieres are getting a little stale in the lifecycle of upgrades.

Does anyone have a handle on when TiVo will make a major upgrade again? Is there any clue to what features might be next? I am thinking of something like the MacRumors buyers' guide.


Some tivo to tivo streaming now working

Wed, 09/19/2012 - 09:32
Just had a fourth TiVo added and on working through the setup with my daughter and showing her the other tivos at the bottom of 'my shows' found that channel 5 shows are available to stream from one box to another.

A different kind of reboot loop

Wed, 09/19/2012 - 07:06
Ok, this is a first for me through many years and quite a few different TiVos. Premiere XL, stock. Woke up this morning and noticed I could hear the fan on high power. Turned on the TV, saw Welcome screen, figured it was just rebooting so I dozed back off. A few minutes later, my ears tell me I'm still hearing the fan at full which isn't normal. Sure enough it's stuck. So, I pull the power, wait a few minutes and plug back in, then the reboot loop begins. Thing is, it honestly doesn't even look like it's passing POST. 4 LEDs flash, Welcome screen, 2-3 seconds, 4 LEDs flash, goes black, Welcome screen, repeat ad-nauseum. Can't get anywhere close to a kickstart prompt.

I've tried pulling HDMI cable, cable card, and network cable to no avail. Every once in a while it will hang at the Welcome screen, but usually it's just the instant reboot loop. It doesn't sound like HDD failure to me, or at least I've never seen a response quite like this with it. Any thoughts on the best candidates to check for?

Daily Call Failing - says call interrupted

Wed, 09/19/2012 - 03:04
I am having trouble getting my new Guide information downloaded from the ALTEPG. It has been fine up until now, but suddenly my TIVO seems to get connected and start downloading but then I get a message to say the call has been interrupted and the download has failed. There is nobody else using the phone at the time. The test call seems to work fine. I have checked all the connections and rebooted TIVO but still it will not complete. It is just dialling out over a standard landline - nothing fancy and has been working perfectly since I set it up when the ALTEPG became available.

Can anybody help please as I have only three days of programme guide left !

No output on HDMI Premiere XL4

Wed, 09/19/2012 - 02:20
I just purchased a Tivo XL4 to work with Comcast cable and a Panasonic VIERA TC-L42ET5 TV. Initially I thought the tivo was defective because I would get the "starting up" screen - then the tv would report no signal once the hard drive on the Tivo started being accessed (Yellow light.)

On a whim, I connected the tv via the component connections from the Tivo and voila' I got picture.

So the question is: How can I set up the tivo so that the HDMI output works with my TV?

So You Think You Can Dance "Winners Announced" 9/18/2012 *Spoilers*

Wed, 09/19/2012 - 00:29
Apparently, there's another change from past seasons that nobody mentioned until now; since there are two winners, they split the $250,000. I assume that's what Cat meant when she said that each winner gets "over $100,000".

First TiVo, and it's Freezing Up on Me; Defective?

Tue, 09/18/2012 - 21:25
Grrr! After all these years I finally got a TiVo last week (Premiere) and it's freezing up on me. I turn on the TV, and the TiVo is completely unresponsive. Nothing blinks on the front of the box when I press a remote button.

I see various threads on this. Is there a chance the box (HD) is defective? If it is, I'd like to return it to the place I bought it from for a new one while I still can. Or is this just life with a TiVo Premiere?


Doctor Who 9/22/12 BBC America

Tue, 09/18/2012 - 20:51
There's an error in the guide data for Doctor Who "The Power of Three" this Saturday where it has the first run air date as 9/22/10 instead of 9/22/12, so if you have a first run season pass, the episode won't be automatically scheduled.
