Yes I'm beating this to death.
What would be the benefits of the DTV HD DVR over the new TIVO.
I think I could deal with it but the wife likes our TIVO's.

What is scheduling shows like? Does the DVR do season passes? Does it follow a show if the air time changes?

Can you have 2 TV's from Tivo XL4 ?

Mon, 08/27/2012 - 04:59
Hi, I used to have Direct TV and have switched to cable. I got a Tivo XL4 and it is fine for the bedroom. With the Direct TV I ran a coaxial cable to the porch so I could use that TV as well with the same Tivo.

I cannot figure out how to do that with the new Tivo 4, there is no extra output. For the porch TV I just use a wireless bouncer thingy so the tivo remote works, and I just watch whatever is recorded in the bedroom.

Both TV's are old CRT, no HD yet. I have the composite going to the bedroom TV. Can I also run a component out to the porch ? Would that work ? Not even sure my porch TV would take that, but any regular coaxial seems to be out of the question.

I hate to the think I upgraded and actually downgraded. On another note, I got a XL4 for the living room in HD and it was worth it. Very cool aps and 4 tuners is nice.


Series 1 - locked drive?

Mon, 08/27/2012 - 03:03
I have a HDR112 that has been working nicely for the past 12 years (bought it originally on August 23rd, 2000). A couple of weeks ago it stopped working, and I suspected the HD was bad. This is the 3rd hard disk that I used for this unit, a Maxtor 120GB that I put in it 4 or 5 years ago. I can replace it with a virgin drive, but I'd prefer if at all possible to recover some shows from that drive so I'm first trying to make a copy with all streams on it.

The drive isn't dead, it powers up and spins. However when I boot one of the upgrade CDs (so far I tried the LBA48 CD from ptvupgrade, and also the MFSlive 1.4CD) it shows as exactly 20000 sectors, 10MB. It acts as if it were locked - which is weird, as none of my TiVos had locked a drive before.

Long story short, I mounted the drive as secondary slave (/dev/hdd) and used diskutil -u 3 on it.
It reported that the operation was successful, but now after power cycling the drive shows as 0 sectors, capacity=0MB.

I'm out of ideas, and thought I'd better check here before doing anything else.

Wow. I never in a million years thought the writers would have the guts to off Mike. Well played.

This opens a whole can of worms. How is Walt going to dispose of the body without Jesse finding out? Can Walt really tie up all of the loose ends?

Connecting to TiVo with mobile broadband Vs Modem

Sun, 08/26/2012 - 23:51
Hi there,

I recently changed broadband providers and have gone from an
ADSL 2 router (which I previously used to connect to TiVo) to a portable
dongle that plugs into a USB port on my computer.

When I changed from Telstra to Optus I did not even consider the impact
it would have on TiVo, but now I am unsure what to do.

Tivo Guide just says "TO BE ADVISED" and I need to connect so that I
can update the guide.

I plugged my Optus mobile broadband dongle into a USB port on the back
of TiVo and attempted to connect, but it was not successful.

Any advice please??

The Newsroom - 08/26/12 - The Greater Fool

Sun, 08/26/2012 - 23:46
As a techie, the "internet troll' story seems weak to me. Hacker groups are a lot more resourceful than this show lets on. They would have sniffed out the Indian guy as a reporter. I guess it works for TV.
Oh my god, why must this show focus so much on the relationships? It just saps the life of all the other plots. Sex & the City tours? Sloan is into Don, why make it more complicated? Mac is damned annoying. It's all crap. I'm glad this season is over, makes it easy to delete the SP and not wait and see if this crap gets better. These people act like little annoying high school kids.

TiVo rates

Sun, 08/26/2012 - 22:11
Are longtime subscribers still paying the $12.95x1 + $6.95 rates xN for TiVo? I know new subscribers pay more but I want to know if others still have their grandfathered rate plans.

Big Brother - 8/26/2012

Sun, 08/26/2012 - 21:34
Why didn't Ian just lie to Frank and say "I won't use it on Dan". Then, if things work out where both Dan and Danielle get saved, you use it. If they don't, then you don't use it and you've kept your word to Frank. Why is it so hard for him to lie to Frank?

Frank is clueless about Ian though. He think he was pressured into things, not realizing that Ian hasn't been pressured into anything.

What a great way to kill a vampire, from the inside!

Disappointed in the rebirth of Bill, I was hoping we would put that storyline to rest for next season.

Fantastic deal!

So, a while back, one of my S2 boxes (a 240) that had been upgraded to 160 hour bit the dust. To make matters worse, I couldn't find the original HDD to get it back going again. Didn't really need the long recording time as this was one of my early units and had long been relegated to the family room TV (I also have two S3 HD's, and a S2 DT all purring along happily). Anyway, after quite a while without a TiVo in the family room, and paying the low rate that had been grandfathered onto that box just so I wouldn't lose it, I decided to start looking into my options. Did I want to buy another replacement drive kit at around $120? Buy an older drive and re-image it? Buy a replacement S2 box? I decided to give eBay and Craigslist a look-see. After not being too impressed with the exaggerated asking prices on eBay (even for old 240's), I ran across a listing on Craigslist for a BRAND NEW 540 -- for $10! :D Before going out to pick it up, I called to confirm the price because I thought it might be a typo, but it wasn't -- $10! The box had been given to this lady as a gift, and she never hooked it up. Somehow, she managed to lose the remote, but it came with a used remote. Everything else was still sealed, and even the TiVo had the plastic on the front and not a spec of dust on the fan blades. I'm in the process of performing the initial setup as I type this.

HR10-250 - stopped recording ALMOST everything

Sun, 08/26/2012 - 19:58
Odd circumstance. My HR10-250 has 64 season passes saved, and is only recording numbers 60-64, the 5 lowest priority passes. Everything else in the to-do list says "nothing scheduled". It started doing this yesterday, when our number of season passes first went beyond 60. Any ideas?

TiVo HD Reboot Hell

Sun, 08/26/2012 - 17:57
I'm trying to prepare an upgraded TiVo HD for sale, so I went through and did the "Clear and Delete Everything". On reboot, it just cycles through the "Welcome! Powering Up" and "Almost there...a few more minutes please" screens. I've unplugged it several times for extended periods of time, and nothing seems to work. The unit worked fine until I ran the "Clear and Delete Everything".

Any suggestions?

Ask me about FIOS DVR vs Tivo XL4--we just switched

Sun, 08/26/2012 - 15:22
We just switched from FIOS DVR to Tivo.

We like it better in every way, so ask us a question if you are wondring.

If you are FIOS DVR user, and have never had Tivo, it is hard to explain, but you would be happier with Tivo.

Only regret (possibly) if we had waited a couple of weeks to today, we could have saved $150 by buying the just released Premiere 4 which seems to be the same except for HD size.

That reminds me--so happy to have 4 tuners

What about 110 Sat on SD?

Sun, 08/26/2012 - 11:03
I have 4 Series 2 direcTivos that I'm being forced to upgrade to 6.4a to get locals back. I had been noticing for a while that when rebooting I would get an error acquiring the sat info. It was that it was unable to get a signal from the 110. After upgrading one to 6.4a, it took three times through the dish setup before it skipped the 110. I replaced the 4x8 multiswitch a while back with a powered model and that seemed to help for a while. I then took out the multiswitch and connected one Tivo directly to the LNB to test, but that didn't help at the time. Oh, I have a 7 year old oval triple LNB dish. Is it time to find a new LNB? The problem isn't too bad during the night, but it's aggravating after a power blink during something you were recording, especially if you aren't around to tell it to go ahead and watch the available channels. Otherwise, you lose about 15 minutes as it times out the menus.

Another issues I've noticed is that 6.4a will sometimes reboot when it loses signal during a storm. Then it has a really hard time acquiring the sat data since that's what provoked the reboot in the first place, so we're back to taking a while to get back online.

Thanks in advance for info,

Anyone else see this new show on MTV? I saw a commercial for it during Teen Wolf and thought it looked kinda interesting. Just finished the first episode and I thought it was pretty funny. I laughed out loud multiple times and I don't laugh out loud all that often watching TV.

I know there is a UK version of the show. I'm now wanting to check that out.

Maybe he would just check into the Biltmore, sleep for three days, and then head back into the golden West.
