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?

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!

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?

Help! New CCard - Now stuck "Firmware upgrade"

Sat, 09/15/2012 - 22:56
So I have been desperate to get my Tivo Premiere back up and running for 2 days now. But problems are only getting worse and neither Cablevision nor Tivo (though Tivo was at least more friendly) support feel like they are helping just yet.

Problems started a few days ago though not positive as I haven't watched much TV this week.

I noticed a couple recordings had a lot of digital artifacting.

Then I noticed a couple channels could not tune in at all.

And some of the channels that could not tune in were basic broadcast channels such as NBC and Fox.

It seemed like I was slowly losing more channels. Though most of my basic cable channels still were coming in fine (though maybe some digital artifacting on a few.

I called cablevision. They gave up pretty easy and want to send a tech out. I don't think its an issue of the quality of the line. Only a few weeks ago they tested my line quality at their request for some still unexplained reason. (Tech simply replaced the one radio shack splitter I had with one he brought).

Anyway they cannot send a tech for almost a full week. I asked if I could try exchanging the cablecard myself at one of their stores to see if that fixed anything.

I installed the new card, powered back on the Tivo.

Tivo said it was "updating the cablecard decoder firmware".

I never got guided setup so I could call cablevision to bind the cablecard. It remained stuck on an endless cycle of screens for the firmware upgrade for over an hour.

During that time I caught a few errors that briefly flashed -

failed to load //app/cvtupdate

I caught a similar error for slightly different file/directory name.

I called cablevision. They said the card must be bad, get another one.

Ran back to the store. New card has the same problem.

Called cablevision again. According to them the Tivo must be "bad" but I'm not buying it.

I called Tivo. They had me try reseating the card while it was powered on. I feel like I can almost get into the cablecard installer menu to get the binding information for the CC; but it always goes back to the decoder firmware update screen.

Anyone have anything to add? If its at all useful this week I believe the cable system in my area is migrating to all digital. Might that have affected anything?

I've brought it up to both cablevision and tivo but they just brushed it aside.

Any help or advice would be much appreciated :)

Movie theater in my car...

Nothing helpful in this post - just sharing. ;)

So tonight I found myself sitting in my car for a couple hours waiting on my daughter - dads you know the drill... Knowing that I would be sitting for a while, I side-loaded a movie from my media server to the TiVo app. (Battle Los Angeles)

I connected the iPad to the Bluetooth audio in the car, leaned the iPad on the steering wheel and watched a movie!

I use the stream quite a bit and for the most part it has worked great!

Doctor Who - "A Town Called Mercy" (9/15/12)

Sat, 09/15/2012 - 22:30
I thought this was a much better episode than last week's. Funny after all the arguing in last week's thread over whether the Doctor kills or not, the next episode brings the question out in the open by having him choose to at first kill then help a war criminal (albeit reformed). Apparently the answer is he will kill, but companions help him keep his moral center. There were no companions around last episode to stop him.

It was nice to see Ben Browder again. He's definitely no stranger to SciFi, but I still never expected to see him on Doctor Who.

$6.95 MSD on Premier unit?

Sat, 09/15/2012 - 21:34
So my mother is interested in a new 4 tuner Premier. I called TiVo and they told me she can't transfer her current $6.95 MSD to the premier, only as far as the Series 3. Has anyone else ran into this? Has anyone had luck getting the old $6.95 MSD on Premier units?
