The Office "The Target" OAD 11/29/2012

Mon, 12/03/2012 - 18:05
Maybe I'm among the last watching this show, but the last couple episodes have been fun for me.

They sure have been giving Dwight a lot of screen time. He has been much more interesting than Andy lately so this is a good thing.

The guest star last week (no spoilers) was a lot of fun.

The last 60 seconds of "The Target" with Angela and Dwight asking questions of Toby was a riot.

Take Shelter, Good Movie or Bag of Suck?

Mon, 12/03/2012 - 15:25
I guess I was just bored or something because I decided to watch this movie. I kind of wish I could get that time back now. The movie had potential but just didn't do enough with it. Some of the scenes were so well done that they felt like you were there and experiencing it. I'm mostly referring to some of the silent moments between the lines. They were so well done that I kept thinking, "Wow, this is about as realistic as you can get."

That being said, I found the ending very unsatisfying. I guess I sort of "got it" but it was still pretty weak, considering how much time and involvement I had invested in it at that point. I think the viewer deserved more.

I've not seen Michael Shannon in much before this, at least not as a major part that I remember well, but he was absolutely amazing in this role. I'm going to have to watch it a few more times just to begin to understand some of the meanings and to better absorb his portrayal of his character. Absolutely mesmerizing.

I don't watch movies this good very often. Maybe that's why they make such an impact when I do.

So for me, it was a damm good movie. I just thought it could be a little more satisfying at the end. So that's the basis for the question in the title of the thread.

Using Amazon Prime On Demand

Mon, 12/03/2012 - 13:46
Since we dumped Netflix, we have been watching movies from Amazon on Demand through our Series 2 TiVo.

All we have been able to watch, though, are the pay per view movies.

We are Amazon Prime members but we cannot figure out how to get the free Amazon Prime movies & tv shows Via our TiVo. Is this possible to do?

r10 Music Photos and more

Mon, 12/03/2012 - 13:02
I had one of my four tivo r10 boxes go bad. I swapped it with a box purchased on ebay and the new r10 offers me a choice "music, photos and more."

I'd like to add this feature to the others. Can someone please share some info on this feature, and how to open it up on my other boxes.


Dexter S07E10 "The Dark… Whatever" 12/02/12

Mon, 12/03/2012 - 12:56
I was thinking in terms of how the show is going to conclude with season 8. But I was thinking that either Dexter of Debra would have to die. They both can't coexist in the universe of Dexter. Either that and one would have to make a significant change while possible seems unlikely.

Spoiler: Now Debra was in a serious accident, but it is too early for her to die, right?

So Dex killed Hannah's Dad on his boat. He won't be careless enough to leave blood on the boat right? So that eliminates them finding Isaak's blood on the boat.

So Dexter has found love again in Hannah. Will this love be taken away like his mother and Rita? (Because of the phone message.)

Of course this leaves him with the one person woman who has always been there for him; Debra.

Boardwalk Empire -- Margate Sands OAD 12/2

Now THAT'S a season finale!

Harrow goes Taxi Driver on Rosetti's men. Nucky get's his payback on Gyp. Margaret "brings on her monthly" (that's a new euphemism to me), but still doesn't want to go back to Nucky.

JOOC were there mob wars in AC During Prohibition? The body count in thie episode was huge.

Premiere questions after reading FAQ

Mon, 12/03/2012 - 10:37
If you can refrain from saying these have been asked before, I have read through the outdated (almost three years) well written FAQ and have the following questions.
I did some additional searching on the more important questions, but I didn't find answers.

In order of importance:

1. Is the 2nd core of the processor enabled yet? As of a year ago, I see it wasn't except for this "Elite" version. If it is, has it sped up the sluggish HD menu? Has it also helped speed up xfers (throughput)?

2. Skip function: Other than the 30 second fast scan, is there some other workaround for the six button routine of the old "skip" function without a fast forward or rewind result?

3. Image caching: Has this been enabled so the system doesn't re-load the images in the Guide?

4. Adding & deleting channels: How do individual channels not in the original scan get added? By just entering the physical channel number, a separate full scan menu entry, or by an "add channel" menu function? Deleted channels are just hidden, not actually removed?

5. CableCards and SDV "tuning adapters". How friendly is this with a TWC system?

6. Adding a 2nd HDD, does the system still "split" the drives making recordings recorded with both drives unaccessible if the 2nd drive is removed? Is there a workaround?

7. WD "MyDVR Expander": Is this only HDD this accepts without whatever mod and/or software those two companies use? Is their workaround available yet?

8. Transfers between the DVR to a PC is allowed, why isn't streaming from one TiVo to another room not?

9. Do these still have ads and just how do they show?

10. Telephone (POTS) connection option: What functions (other than streaming) do you loose with a telephone connection? Is the update once in a 24 hr period? How long does it take?

11. Search: What is meant by "first word" searches? What/who determines the "popularity" of the search results?

12. Does the Premier support DTCP-IP encryption yet?

13. The deleted folder: How much space is reserved & how long are deleted recordings kept?

14. Does "Streambaby" still have the 1.1GB limitation?

15. Does Premiere still Energy Star certified after the stricter regulations went into effect 1/11?

Tivo Loses Video over time

Mon, 12/03/2012 - 08:25
Did some searching for this but didn't find anything like it.

Sometimes I will lose the video/sound output on my Tivo Premiere. I have never experienced the loss of video at the time it occurs so I can't give too many details in that regard.

- Connection to TV is HDMI (occurs with or without HDMI splitter in place)
- TV says 'No Signal'
- Tivo lights appear normal, button presses on the remote are registered on the Tivo (amber light).
- Must reboot Tivo to fix the issue.

It never occurred until a month or so ago, so I would be interested to see a update schedule to find out if the start of the issue coincides with a major/minor update.

Anyone have any thoughts this issue?

TiVo shuts down all other internet

Mon, 12/03/2012 - 07:36
Need help, I had two TiVo series 3's hooked up in my home connected to my network and everything was fine. I was able to transfer shows, surf the web on my laptop (my wife too), everything sync'ed up perfectly. However, I just bought a premier to replace a series 3 and when I connected it and it processed all updates (it accesses the net just fine) it shuts down network access to the rest of the house. No transferring between TiVo's, no surfing on our laptops, no wifi access whatsoever in our house. Could this be a router issue? I am using an old Wireless G router (linksys). Thanks for the help!

The Amazing Race S21E10 "Not a Well-Rounded Athlete" 2 Dec 2012

Mon, 12/03/2012 - 07:11
I had hoped that we had finally seen the last of those annoying twins.

Though I've never been a fan of the farmer boys (due to their negative woe-is-me attitude the entire race), it's interesting that they've made it this far. I wonder how the other teams will react if they end up winning...

Streambaby with ASUS RT-N56U router

Mon, 12/03/2012 - 01:50
I need help getting streambaby working with Asus RT-N56U router.
It was working fine with my old router, I have since upgraded to this new router.
My Tivo can connect to internet and other network functions work (Netflix, youtube, etc.)
I understand I might need to enable multi-cast in router. There are several settings in an "IPTV" tab, I have tried to "enable multi-cast routing" but it does not seem to work.

If anyone has gotten Asus RT-N56U to work with streambaby, can you please post the router settings?


60 Minutes 12/2/12 - hospital costs, North Korean escaped prisoner, solar plane

Mon, 12/03/2012 - 01:48
I haven't watched the first segment yet but I liked 2nd and 3rd segment.

I've seen numerous documentaries on NK before. This is probably about the most detail I've heard about the life in prison camps there. Horrible!

I really hope the NK government does fall someday in the near future so the people there can see how they've been duped and how the rest of the world lives.

Tivo & Netflix problems, again

Sun, 12/02/2012 - 22:01
This is a new variety of the typical Tivo/Netflix issue that I have seen
with my Series 3 HD Tivo.

My S3 is running 11.0K, which I believe is the latest OS version.

I'm able to watch a 45 minute Netflix show through my Tivo, but when I
go to view another episode, I can't connect to Netflix through the Tivo.
(my Tivo is connected via wired ethernet to the router)

This has happened several times this week. I've called Netflix, they said they
were not having any issues. In fact, I got through to them instantly, and there were no other people calling in.

Netflix said I should remove my Netflix account from my Tivo, but in order to do that, I have to be able to connect with Netflix.

I've rebooted my router and restarted my Tivo.
After Tivo restarted, I was able to connect with Netflix and watch a show.

After that show had completed, I tried watching another episode, same problem occurred.

I hope I don't have to restart my Tivo every time I want to watch Netflix.
Not sure what to do now, I guess I'll call Tivo tomorrow to see what they say.

At the same time that I"m having these problems with the Tivo-Netflix combo, I'm able to stream Netflix on my Mac via wifi. This tells me the router is ok.

Is anyone else having a similar issue- with OS version 11.0K?

I read some older posts from several years ago where people had the same issue.
I'm surprised to see it's still happening.

Cannot Queue Up Shows to Transfer

Sun, 12/02/2012 - 21:58

i just bought a Tivo Premiere XL4 and am trying to transfer shows from my older Tivo HD XL to my premiere. I can only transfer one show at a time. The Tivo Premiere allows me to go in to my other tivo and look at the other shows and click on one, and after a slight delay, the screen will load but when I try and click on transfer show, the screen freezes up. If I click the back arrow or the tivo button, it allows me to go back to the other screen. No matter how many times I try, I cannot queue up any shows. I have a lot of shows I wanted to transfer and was wondering if there was an answer.

i have read about this problem on other threads that were posted over 6 months ago. Has anyone figured out a fix for this or should I call Tivo?

Thank you very much to anyone who can help!!


Best wireless N router to work with TiVo

Sun, 12/02/2012 - 21:51
I've been using a WRT54G-TM (TMobile @ Home) wireless router, but we are leaving Tmobile and I'd like to upgrade to a faster router. And the one we had seems to have issues with the TiVo iPad app. If you reboot the TiVo it shows up for a while but within an hour or two, it can no longer be seen on the network. I'd like to avoid that on the new router. Any help would be appreciated.

Walking Dead 12/2/12 "Made to Suffer"

Sun, 12/02/2012 - 21:49
They sure do go through black guys...Tyrese better watch his back!

Now, I'm a little confused. I'm almost positive that the Guv knows that Andrea and Daryl were part of the same group. Shouldn't he realize that Daryl's presence is going to have an impact on Andrea's thinking?

I'm a little surprised they never did a perimeter sweep of the prison and found that rather gaping hole in their defenses. Unless they went to the 24 school of hard perimeters...
