Handling of National Weather Service warnings

Thu, 08/16/2012 - 18:55
We've been having a number monsoonal storms near us and I note that when the warning comes on and I am watching a recorded program, the TiVo switches to live. Is this standard procedure with TiVo? Hard to believe that the cable co can do that.

On my old cable DVR, the warning just played on top of the recorded show I was watching.

Hey folks,

Just wanted to pass on our press release from this morning:

TiVo Launches Four Tuner ‘TiVo Premiere 4’

New Product Solves the Sunday Night TV Show Pile-Up and Allows Users to Record Four Shows at One Time

ALVISO, CALIF., August 15, 2012 – TiVo Inc. (NASDAQ: TIVO), the creator of and leader in advanced television services including digital video recorders (DVRs), today announced the launch of its TiVo® Premiere 4, a set-top box designed to solve program scheduling conflicts and allow families to record all of their favorite shows, while simultaneously serving as the hub to a TiVo whole home-setup. With four digital tuners to record four programs simultaneously, up to 75 hours of HD recording space and access to a massive library of web-delivered entertainment, the TiVo Premiere 4 is the ideal DVR for any household of TV enthusiasts.

“The TiVo Premiere 4 solves the pileup of must-see shows like Sunday nights when “Mad Men,” “Breaking Bad,” “Nurse Jackie,” “Girls,” “Celebrity Apprentice,” “Game of Thrones,” “Homeland,” “The Good Wife,” “True Blood,” “Political Animals,” and “Family Guy” can overlap in a logjam of popular shows,” said Doug Bieter, Vice President of Retail Sales for TiVo. “The increasing demand for a solution to this problem and the strong feedback we have already received regarding our four tuner, two terabyte TiVo Premiere XL4 inspired us to develop this new product for consumers wanting an affordable, user-friendly solution. The TiVo Premiere 4 will allow you to go shopping every Sunday night for your week’s worth of shows – it’s the warehouse store of television and now viewers can stock up their TiVo without having to worry about scheduling conflicts.”

Exceptional Recording and Integration Capabilities
Enhancing the TiVo Premiere 4’s functionality as the ultimate at-home entertainment device is the offering of MoCA as a networking option in addition to its integrated Ethernet connectivity. Utilizing integrated MoCA support, custom installers can use the coaxial cabling within the home to connect the TiVo Premiere 4 to the home network in setups where an Ethernet connection is not available to the DVR. Home theater installers and custom integrators will also appreciate the TiVo Premiere 4 as an exceptional solution through its compatibility with some of the most popular home automation controllers, including Crestron, Control4, and RTI. This compatibility allows installers to seamlessly incorporate the TiVo Premiere 4 into existing home controls.

Award-Winning User Experience

Can't Link Premiere to Zap2it TV Listings

Thu, 08/16/2012 - 17:44
I had a Tivo HD that I was able to succesfully link with the Zap2it TV Listings so as to schedule recordings online. A month ago I added a Tivo Premiere unit which was correctly added on their site along with my HD unit. However, whenever I went to schedule a recording I got the following error message: FAILURE! “”. Bad value for contentId in captureRequestStore.
I thought that this might be some sort of glitch with having two units.
I have now discontinued the subscription for the HD unit so that I now only have one unit - the Premiere. Unfortunately I am still getting the same error message.
Does anyone know the reason for this?
(Note: I know Tivo also has TV listings but I prefer Zap2it's because its listings indicate when a show is "new").

TiVo Premier Stuttering and Choppy Playback

Thu, 08/16/2012 - 16:50
I have a TiVo Premier that occasionally shows Stuttering symptoms and the picture becomes jerky for a while.

I had this occur on another box, that I just returned to TiVo for warranty replacement just a few weeks back and now the brand new box is doing the same thing.

I find it hard to believe that it is a bad hard drive, almost appear to me like processor lag or that the TiVo device is struggling to keep up.

Tried to figure out if recording two shows while watching another caused it, if it occured while using Netflix, and if it was just part of the recording.

Seems to happen randomly. I just did a restart of the box (first in two weeks) and we'll see if that helps.

If anyone from TiVo could help provide some input that would be great.

Thanks,
Mike

Wall Street Journal about Veterans and TiVo

Thu, 08/16/2012 - 15:23
Today's WSJ has an article by Tom Rogers on how TiVo is trying to help Veterans get jobs, it's on page A11. I can't link to the article as I only have as Sub to the print edition.

No component out

Thu, 08/16/2012 - 14:59
I was given this unit (S3 HD) as a gift, and the friend *thinks* it was working in the past, but it does not work for me.
I know my TV's inputs work as I have other AV equipment that does work, and have used those cables and inputs.

Is there some way to verify the status of the ports?
Is it common for this function to simply die??

TIA

Steve

TiVo Premiere XL4 an QNAP

Thu, 08/16/2012 - 11:46
I am planning few months down the road, to make a jump from Series 3 to Premiere XL4 with TiVo Stream and IP extenders (once the latter are released). But I like my self-made eSATA storage expander (Vantec). However, I can't find anyone who would state if any other drives, outside of the WD AVR 1TB, are even recognizable.

Taking things a step further, is there any way to hook up iSCSI?

:confused:

transformer size for tivo to work in Europe?

Thu, 08/16/2012 - 11:05
I have my series 2 here with me to use recording AFN. I need to get a transformer so I don't blow it up. Anyone how how many watts the tivo s2 uses? I've tried looking it up and don't see a definite answer. Thanks so much for any help!

Lost HDMI?

Thu, 08/16/2012 - 10:30
Anyone have an idea why I would all of a sudden loose HDMI on my S3. It's been fine for about 5 years. I tried a new high speed HDMI cable, but that didn't change a thing. I went to RGB cables and that works fine. It just doesn't look as sharp and crisp as HDMI.

I called both Time Warner and Tivo and neither could solve my problem. Anyone have an idea as to what went wrong?

Tivo Premiere constant reboot (need image) question?

Thu, 08/16/2012 - 08:58
So I got the GSOD followed by a constant rebooting of my 5 month old Tivo Premiere. (Bought 3/9/2012) :(

Trying to determine my options here.

1.)It sounds like the unit is under limited warranty. Which I think means for $49 or something they will repair it for me. Not sure if someone can confirm this or not. Not sure if that leaves me on hook for shipping?

2.) Replace hard drive. This is assuming I know the problem is the hard drive.
It sounds like GSOD and constant reboot is caused by a bad hard drive. Can anyone confirm that?

I have a 1.5TB drive sitting around anyway. I figured I could use that vs spending money getting my current tivo repaired. Here is my issue. My current Tivo is dead. So where do I get a premiere image? I have a friend with a premiere. Can I use his Tivo hard drive and load that onto my Tivo? any issues with doing that?

Thanks...

MRV between cablecard Premiere and OTA only Premiere

Thu, 08/16/2012 - 08:21
Thinking about getting a Premiere4 and moving the cablecard from my Premiere to the 4. The Premiere would then be OTA only. Any issues or concerns with streaming between them (will cablecard channels be copy protected and unwatchable on the original Premiere?)

I'd assume no issue - but want to make sure.

Any opinions on a good DVD authoring software to transfer TiVo recordings?

Thu, 08/16/2012 - 07:09
Hey All

Using kmttg, I am able to have glorious HD versions of anything from my TiVo that is of course, not copy protected. However, the current software I have on my computer- Corel DVD Movie Factory is giving me issues. Whenever I import the video (note- I do not convert it- I use the actual .mpg file), and then play it in my home DVD player, the picture moves in almost a robotic way. It is difficult to explain but it kind of looks like stop and go instead of the picture moving normally. Playing the files on the computer works perfect so I am thinking it is the software doing this.

Is there a better software I should be using to get better quality or am I doing something wrong when it comes to importing and clicking on burn. I am not changing anything on the software when I do it so I can't imagine I have any setting wrong.

No sound on non-copy protected recording transferred from Tivo Desktop

Thu, 08/16/2012 - 02:32
I am able to transfer “Entertainment Tonight” from my Tivo to PC successfully using Tivo Desktop (even tried kmttg). But during playback there is no sound. It’s not a problem with my Media Player’s audio codec because other shows play fine. In fact, the Entertainment Tonight episode (NBC HD) that was taped last week was delayed because of the Olympics. So there was sound during the first 3 minutes of playback. But when ET started, the sound went off. It seems like my cable provider has put some sort of restriction on this particular show. Any ideas?

Going HD with TiVo and DirectV

Thu, 08/16/2012 - 02:19
I have been a happy TiVo owner for 12 years now. I had one of the first units, which I updated with a second HDD, and sold to one of my son's friends, who I believe is still using it. I have had two Series 2 units for a number of years now and have moved one of them into our motor home, which we live in full time, and hooked it into the DirectV system we bought for use on the road. All has worked well with this system for 3 plus years we have been full-time RVers but now we are ready to go HD. Now that the DirectV DVR with TiVo is available, my plan is to go with one of those for our satellite system, and also getting a TiVo Premier DVR for recording OTA and cable shows (when we can hook up to cable and/or get shows OTA. In Alaska this summer this has not always been possible, but this winter, in FL, we will have both). I have seen that DirectV claims that their TiVo DVR will not hook up to their full house system, but I am thinking, if it works the same as the older Series 2, that I should be able to hook the two TiVos together through our network system. Is this true? Will I also be able to use the TiVo Desktop software with the DirectV unit?

The other question I have about the DirectV DVR (THR-22 I guess the model number is) is how many shows can I record at once? I think the answer is 2, since there are 2 satellite connections. I assume it has two satellite receivers built in.

If this set up works as well as I think it will, It should be pretty sweet for us. Thanks in advance for any advice and/or answers.

tivo will not rewind and the time does not move

Thu, 08/16/2012 - 01:07
I have a 11/2 year old Elite. I use Kmttg to down load programs to my computer and use Videoredo to edit the ads out. Then I use pytivo to trans the programs back to the Elite. For the last week or so I have been getting this problem. I can not rewind back 10 second or do a fast rewind of the programs plus the time line does not move with program. It stays at zero. Does any know what is causing this?
I can play recorded show that have not been transferred ok It rewinds and the the time line works ok.
