Castle - Swan Song - OAD 11/12/12

Tue, 11/13/2012 - 23:21
This was the first episode of Castle that I actually disliked. The whole "they act stupid because a documentary is being filmed" gimmick was annoying, and it just didn't work.

Reading all these post but still lost, need help

Tue, 11/13/2012 - 22:47
We have an older, 2004 I think model Hr 10-250 Hughes DVR dual tuner running Directv off a 3 lbn oval dish. The unit is starting to reboot several times a day and I'm not sure if it is just starting to go or the mysterious reboot problem.

I would like to keep everything the same (no HD) with a new unit however it looks like it will have to be an HD receiver. Questions:

Would a directv Tivo THR22 work off my existing 3 LBN dish, (no HD)?
Where do I buy it, from Directv or someone like Weak Knees and I guess there are others selling them?
I read about the 2006 lease thing with Directv, who owns the unit? How can it be that I buy it yet lease it?
If it will work on my dish is it an ok receiver?

We have had Directv in our homes for longer than I can remember but I have lost what's going on with the latest technology as nothing has ever need to be changed.

HDVR2 Component Swap Advice

Tue, 11/13/2012 - 22:46
I have an old standard-definition Hughes DirecTV Tivo unit (HDVR2), with a long-expired contract. It is pixellating on virtually every channel (very minor on some and severe enough on others to be unwatchable). I have a second HDVR2 unit that should be in good working order. I already tried, so I know I cannot get the backup unit registered (as these older units do not have some special code that DirecTV requires), so I have to maintain my current registration.

As a shotgun approach (assuming the power supply and fan are okay), would it be an unwise move to replace the hard-drive AND the main board simultaneously? I assume that as long as I re-use the existing Access Card, then exchanging the drive and the main board would maintain the account.

I just need to get by for a couple months until I can afford to upgrade to an HD unit. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Tivo HD new harddrive upgrade stuck in WinMFS

Tue, 11/13/2012 - 21:25
Good evening.

I purchased a Tivo HD 20hr ("DVR D3AB") in December 2009. After watching aramistech.com's Youtube post on upgrading the hard drive, I decided to switch out my 160GB for a 1TB drive.

I'm using WinMFS and have followed all the directions. I've been stuck with an ETA of 0:08:13 for the past 12 hours. Partition copied is: MFS Media Partitions.

Any thoughts on what I've done wrong? I would greatly appreciate any help!

Tivo Model Number: TCD652160
New Hard Drive: Western Digital WD10EURX 1 Terabyte

TiVo Start and Stop, I mean TiVo Stream

Tue, 11/13/2012 - 20:29
I am tired of rebooting everything, even the app update did not help. It is way to frustrating to watch a show through TiVo Stream!!!

Do you "like" tv show pages on Facebook?

Tue, 11/13/2012 - 16:38
I was going to post a poll but I guess you can't do that in this forum.

I "like" the Facebook pages of almost every show I watch.

Sometimes I will have to unlike them if I find they post just too much fluff stuff or are really bad at spoilers, but for the most part I love the behind the scenes stuff and never aired footage that you get.

I also like that they usually start posting something about the show as it nears a new season

cable card & expander question

Tue, 11/13/2012 - 16:35
I have a few questions on my Tivo premeire. Is it possible for cable cards to be bad? I have had issues receiving all my channels since it was installed. I have called the cable company and walked through their steps only to have the channels go out a day or so later. I get the blue window on the tv that says "channel is temporarily unavailable press select to try tuning again"
on average 10-20 channels are like this. so HD some standard channels.
any advice would be great! very frustrating.

Regarding the expander I found this at BB.com
Model #WDBABT0010HBK-NESN For $99.99

But after reading here they/you recommend model# WDG1S10000N

BB.com reviews "claim it works great" but would like your thoughts

Thank you for taking the time to read this and look forward to your advise!

Lost Details on Banner

Tue, 11/13/2012 - 16:34
Just this week I lost the details under the banner. I can use the right arrow and move through but on the next channel its back to just the banner and no details. What am I doing wrong where I can't save the setting so it will show details on every channel with out using the right arrow?

MRV Premeire to HD issue

Tue, 11/13/2012 - 14:07
I just upgraded to a TiVo Premiere and moved my HD box upstairs and I'm experiencing the following issues...any help would be appreciated!

Issue number one: When I attempt to transfer a program recorded on an MPEG-4 channel (Plus Pack channels, for those "lucky" enough to have Cox Hampton Roads, just went to MPEG-4.) from the Premiere to the HD, I get an audio only recording on the HD. My MAK is the same on both units. I have rebooted multiple times. The HD has the most current software update. The Premiere has 20.2.1...does it matter that it's not 20.2.2?

Ready to throw the damned things through the window, I thought I would get around this issue by transferring from the Premiere to TiVo Desktop Plus to the HD. So, I transferred a MPEG-4 recording from my Premiere to TiVo Desktop. So far, so good. But, when looking at recordings on my computer via the HD box, I see the red circle w/slash and receive the following message: "This recording cannot transfer because its format is HD which is incompatible with this DVR." Which doesn't even make sense, as it's a bloody HD DVR!

A search of this forum led me to download the K-Lite Codec Pack and uncheck the use fastest method available box in TiVo Desktop. This seemed to work at first, but now, every time I try to transfer a file from the Premiere to the PC, it loads less than 100MB and stops..and I get audio only!

Is there something I'm missing? I've searched and searched, and can't find any reference to the inability to view transferred MPEG-4 files on a TiVo HD. I'm not sure what to do next: a little guidance in the right direction would be most helpful. :)

Premiere (TCD746320) with Lifetime and Warranty

500 GB PATA/IDE (Parallel) Hard Drive for sale

Tue, 11/13/2012 - 13:49
A few years ago when I was still using TiVo boxes that had IDE drives in them, I had a 500GB drive fail while still under warranty. Seagate shipped me a 500GB drive, but I got impatient and replaced it with a new one before the warranty replacement arrived. Recently I was going through some boxes of TiVo parts and I came across the drive.

It is a Seagate 7200.10 500 GB "Certified Repaired HDD" still in the anti-static bag. It appears to have been manufactured around 2010, as the date code is "10303" which means January 23 2010. Made in Thailand.

I thought there might still be some TiVo owners that need a drive like this for their Series 2 TiVo boxes.

Make me an offer. If I don't get anything here, this drive will go up on eBay next week.

Fast 'N Loud. Anybody watching?

Tue, 11/13/2012 - 12:46
Has anyone been watching this show? It's the only car/motorcycle building show I can watch, and enjoy it a lot.

Does anyone know if any more new episodes are forthcoming? All they are showing now are remixes of existing episodes.

Anyone have their tuners die?

Tue, 11/13/2012 - 11:16
I have a premiere from 9/2010.

Started to get some tiling/pixelation. Lasted 24 hours during our first cold spike so I let it be.

Woke up to no signal on both tuners.

Turns out the tuners will not pick up any signal even thought I know there is good signal.

Brought my Bedroom premiere and hooked it up and it works fine on this line.

UI and all recordings play back with no issues so HD is fine. It is a new HD i put in about 6 months ago.

I work for the Cable Co so I did my tests and know 100% the signal is fine. I currently have a cable Co DVR hooked up and it has been working fine for 24+hrs.

Is the tuner replaceable at all?

Anyone experience this? Haven't called Tivo since it is OOW.


Fios and 3D Tv

Tue, 11/13/2012 - 09:04
Hello All...

I just got off the phone with Fios here in NJ. I wanted to add the 3D ESPN Channel. I was told by the rep that I was unable to get the channel, because they required I have their HD box. This makes no sense? He said it doesn't work with cable card.

Has anyone else received this bogus information from FIOS ?

Thanks !

Fast Lane Daily Video podcosts stopped working

Tue, 11/13/2012 - 07:46
One of my favorite video podcasts "Fast Lane Daily" stopped working awhile ago. It downloads and there is sound on the playback, but no picture, just a black screen. I'm assuming the encoding has changed for this podcast and Tivo's codec doesn't support it fully. Any chance for an upgrade so I can keep seeing this video podcast on my Tivo ?

Revolution 11/12/12 "Ties That Bind"

Tue, 11/13/2012 - 01:44
What the heck was that facility Grace was in? I counted 5 red Xs that represented the pendants. Wasn't there supposed to be 12? Wonder where the other 7 are.

Stuttering, video loss, what's going on?

Tue, 11/13/2012 - 01:11
I've had this unit for less than a year and now it's starting to stutter and drop video. It's getting very annoying. I've read about the "kickstart" tests, but can't seem to get into that menu.

Is my TiVo dying already?!?!?

Shows will not transfer from Tivo or computer

Mon, 11/12/2012 - 23:10
I have two tivo s4s and a mac running pyTivo.

One tivo can transfer files just fine, the new tivo cannot. When I try to transfer recordings from the tivo or the mac, it states that the show has been added to the to do list and will transfer when previous transfers are complete. There are no "previous transfers". I confirm this by looking in the to do list.

I've tried rebooting the box, making multiple calls, and switching between wireless and powerline adapters.

It will stream from the other tivo with no issues, but will not transfer.

The Tivo that works has the newest October update. The other tivo is on the priority list.
