TiVo Streaming to new Wii U Game Pad!

Thu, 09/13/2012 - 10:40
From the Nintendo website. Nintendo TVii is part of the new console's (Wii U) GamePad functionality.


"Nintendo TVii enables you to find, watch, and engage with TV shows, movies and sports programming, all from the Wii U GamePad. You can search for programs across Wii U Video Entertainment, TV channels and your own TiVo DVR"

Very basic question

Thu, 09/13/2012 - 10:21
Hi. I need some advice please. :confused:

We are renting an apartment for a few months as a transition home. We have basic Time Warner as part of the apartment pkg and no land line phone. My wife and I would like ot have some form of DVR for the few months we are here. When we get to the new place we are getting AT&T UVerse with their DVR. We are ok with non-HD and only one TV having it recorded.

Does it make sense to but a Series 1 or 2 TiVO on EBay and connect it to the existing cable box?

Do I need a land line phone to do this?

Thanks a lot for the advice.


TiVo and Nintendo's Wii U

Thu, 09/13/2012 - 09:43
Apparently the new Wii U is going to have some built in support for TiVo.

The press conference is going on live now, but I wonder if this means we will be able to use it as an extender.


Quote: It also integrates with TiVo DVRs. Upon clicking a channel listing on the GamePad, users can also watch it directly through their televisions. The GamePad acts as the center of the entire Nintendo TVii featureset. Users can choose a show, decide to favorite it, record it on the TiVo, share the listing with friends, and others.

Which unit has best UI/Performance?

Thu, 09/13/2012 - 07:39
I was wondering, out of all the new TiVOs being sold today, are any of them "faster" than the other?

I do not need more than 2 Tuners, so the standard Premiere seems to fit the bill. However, does the new Premiere 4 have a faster CPU or anything else other than 2 extra tuners to make it more desirable?


TWC Customer, fed up with horrible DVR. Will TiVO help?

Thu, 09/13/2012 - 07:27
I'm a Time Warner customer, I am absolutely fed up with this ancient 8300 HD DVR and want to upgrade. Time Warner says "sorry, we can't afford new boxes" so I am now looking to alternatives.

If I put a CableCARD in a TiVO, will I get a superior UI and performance to my lousy Time Warner DVR? I do not care about Nextflix, Amazon, or any of that other BS - that's what my laptop is for. I need ESPN, CNN, Bravo, etc and I am not going to get those OTA.

My options are either stick with Time Warner and get a TiVO or go to U-Verse since their DVR's seem much better than Time Warners.

I would welcome any advice. Is the Premiere UI really that great?

NFL RedZone not working on XL4

Thu, 09/13/2012 - 01:15
Bought a new XL4 and haven't been able to get RedZone channels (SD & HD) working on it. My old Series 3 cablecards receive RedZone and I have already tried swapping them into the XL4 without success.

Verizon sent me a new cablecard and same situation. I do receive HBO on that card without problems once I have them pair the card. But I can't seem to get RedZone working on it.

Doesn't make sense that it would be a hardware problem because it receives HBO. Fios support is awful like all other cable companies. Very frustrating hold times and general stupidity in the people I am talking to.

Anybody have any ideas of why this is happening? I had the HBO problems a few weeks ago on the S3, but was fixed once they manually input the Data ID I gave them.

Weird Stream problem

Wed, 09/12/2012 - 22:53
Got my Stream today. Hooked it into my network, then went about updating the software from an iPad.

Looped, looped some more, continued looping, and finally finished.

Here's where it gets weird. Every time I have added an additional iDevice (phone, pad, touch) the wireless router goes offline. Can't maintain a connection on my PC to it. Reboot the router and everything is fine, including iDevices.

Has anyone else seen anything like this?

Donald Glover (Community) to star in pilot

Wed, 09/12/2012 - 21:45
Donald Glover is developing a pilot (soon to be a put pilot) for NBC. This isn't a very good sign for Community. I realize we are guaranteed a 4th season but NBC isn't giving me any confidence we will ever see a 6th.


Screen black except for Live TV inset

Wed, 09/12/2012 - 21:43
For the second time, I turned on my TiVo Premiere (after upgrading it with a 2TB HD), only to get a mostly black screen except for the Live TV inset in the upper right corner. No listing of my shows, etc., couldn't get the grid to come up. The only fix was to unplug it and plug it back in. Is this a problem with the HD version of the startup screen, and would switching to the SD screen help?:confused:

Tivo Stream is relatively noisy

Wed, 09/12/2012 - 19:40
Just as a warning, if you are sensitive to fan noise you may have issues with the Stream. I can hear it from across the room both when it's active (higher fan noise) and even when it's quieter.

While it's not loud, it's easily the noisiest component near my TV -- louder than the Elite, Cisco tuning adapter, Airport Express router, etc.

I might think about either returning it or leaving it unplugged except when I need it (not ideal).

"The Glades" renewed for 4th season *SPOILERS*

Wed, 09/12/2012 - 18:35
Don't click on the link below if you haven't seen the third season finale.

There's never much action here on TCF for "The Glades" but I've always liked it. It's been renewed for another season....

Make my own DVR expander

Wed, 09/12/2012 - 18:05
So has anyone been able to create their own DVR Expander using the correct drive in the Tivo Premier and a 3rd part esata case?

TiVo Stream Failure Rate?

Wed, 09/12/2012 - 17:12
On a forum, I know that people with duds will post while success stories are rare, but there seems to be an unusual amount of DOA TiVo Streams here.

I'd be curious for the actual numbers, but I can only poll the people here.

Did your TiVo Stream work right from the moment it was plugged in?

Does reboot require networking?

Wed, 09/12/2012 - 13:03
I've got a pair of Tivo HD units that were just moved. We're renting a house while our old one is torn down and a new one built. One of them was hanging as the "few minutes more" screen and would only boot when an ethernet connection was hooked up. The other one seems to be stuck in a reboot loop, jumping back to 'powering up' after showing the 'few minutes more' message for a few seconds.

Both of these units have been working fine. Both back at the old house and here at the new one, when setup on some boxes temporarily. They only now show problems when I unplugged them (while nothing was recording) to move them into the furniture that just got delivered.

So, does the Tivo *require* the network in order to boot?

And what's the prescribed troubleshooting process on the reboot loop? Pop the case and check for cables, and bulging caps? Or is there something I can do from the remote to debug it?

Stream now - when will Set Top Boxes arrive?

Wed, 09/12/2012 - 12:39
Now that we have Stream - when will we get Set Top Boxes to receive those streams for our 2ndary+ TV's?

Broadcast network shows not in HD

With Big Brother winding down, and it's not in HD, are there any other broadcast network shows not in HD? (Fox, ABC, NBC, CBS, CW)
