Do the Netflix Icons show up for you when you Browse Movies & TV??

Sat, 08/25/2012 - 14:02
Do the Netflix Icons show up for you when you use the "Browse Movies & TV" menu?? :confused:

I see the Netflix Icon on very few movies when I use the 'Find TV, Movies, & Videos/Browse TV & Movies' menu. For instance, I'll look for Movies and go to the Westerns category. When I look at True Grit (both the old one with John Wayne, and the new one with Jeff Bridges) they don't have the Netflix icon!!! Why not?? :rolleyes:

I just watched True Grit yesterday on Netflix on my Tivo, so it is there.. But Tivo won't let me go to it from the Tivo Browse TV & Movies menu? And the Netflix app kind of sucks. I have to search for that exact movie. There is no Western category to browse. It is slow and you can only see about 4 movies in a category at a time. In the Tivo Browser you can select Westerns as a category, and the 'entire screen' is all westerns. You can see about 20 at a time!! That is much better. Argg.... :(

Great Food Truck Race -- Season 3

Sat, 08/25/2012 - 13:21
It's season 3 for the Great Food Truck Race on Food Network. Interesting twist this year where the contestants are food truck operator wannabes. Many don't even have any restaurant or professional culinary experience. Should be pretty interesting to see them deal with it all.

Help needed: fit Tivo HD into a 512G SSD

Sat, 08/25/2012 - 13:14
Hi!

I am trying to replace my Tivo HD XL's 1TB HD with a 512G SSD. I understand that there are many reasons not to do it (such as 24/7 writes will wear SSD down quickly, and this does not provide performance enhancement, etc) but the HD is too noisy and I cannot sleep with it on.

I tried instantcake, but it tells me "backup target not large enough for entire backup by itself"

Also tried WinMFS v9.3f, MFSLive v1.4 ISO, and both give me similar error saying target drive is too small.

I tried upgrade my Tivo Premiere using JMFS Linux Boot CD, that did not work either.

But I can see someone did it before (tivo-vb/showthread.php?t=454580)

I checked my hd partition by cat /proc/partitions, and it shows there are two partitions with size > 400G.

My question is, is there a way fit Tivo HD or Premiere software into a 512G SSD? Or a way to delete/shrink some of the Tivo partiton? How to do it?


Thanks!

Why are U-verse sales people taught to lie?

Sat, 08/25/2012 - 12:57
Had a visit this morning from a couple of U-verse sales people. When I saw the logo on their shirts, I told them I was not interested in U-verse TV as "I have TiVos and you don't support TiVo". They kept insisting that they did in fact support TiVos even when I told them I have 4, only 1 of which that would work with U-verse and that the other 3 used CableCARDs which they do not and cannot support. They informed me that they were told in training that U-verse does support TiVo. Is it just me, or is this not criminal fraud?

Premiere XL locks up

Sat, 08/25/2012 - 12:19
My new Premiere XL will lock up frequently, usually when using menus in Tivo Central. It's happened while trying to access recordings, or switching menus. And once I got a black screen, with the time bar moving, but no recording showing.

I've rebooted it each time (I recently became aware of the thumbs down/up play/play suggestion but haven't been able to try it yet). After reboot it appears to work OK, although I have to re-record whatever I was recording at the time of the reboot.

Any suggestions?

Tivo App - sub accounts?

Sat, 08/25/2012 - 10:56
It appears that in order to use the Tivo App on Android, you have to login as the actual account holder, and then you have full control over the actual account (credit cards, etc.)

Is there not a way to just submit recording requests, etc. without having full access?

America's Next Top Model Cycle 19 College Edition

Sat, 08/25/2012 - 09:11
Let's discuss this horror show I can't stop watching...

Hooray another reality competition show rebooted to add social media (sarcasm)...
Really? Voting on Facebook?

Relegated to Friday night.... Hmmmm.

Gone are mr and ms J and longtime judge Nigel Barker

- Kelly Cutrone is still there - which I think is good
- a 22 year old British male model i never heard of is the new 3rd judge (uh and he's YOUNGER than most of these college theme contestants) and seems more interested in getting in the girls pants than anything else - seriously i can't even figure out what he is doing there

- the new stylist photo manager kindof grew on me as the episode went on although the first time he spoke on screen i laughed out loud - i am gay and even i wondered if he could be more gay - his qualification apparently is that he dressed Katy Perry. Once.

13 of the 30 contestants were featured heavily before the final 13 were revealed so it was pretty much a no brainer who they were going to be...
- apparently people on facebook have been voting BEFORE the episode aired and all this 4th you be the judge social media stuff - i guess you had to be a friend of one of the contestants to know about it...
thanks for letting us know how to vote!

Actually I think the thing that bothered me the most was the judging panel didn't have a desk to sit behind!

So either this will be hugely popular or this is the beginning of the end...

Pandemic thriller by Straczynski

Sat, 08/25/2012 - 07:11
ABC developing series with Straczynski
Pandemic thriller from Georgeville, Overbrook poised for straight-to-series order
By CYNTHIA LITTLETON
ABC has inked a deal with indie production company Georgeville TV and Overbrook Entertainment for a pandemic thriller project from "Babylon 5" creator J. Michael Straczynski.
Project is designed to secure a straight-to-series order, meaning that if ABC likes the script it will forgo a pilot in favor of a multiple episode order.

Details on the project are sketchy but it's described as a blend of procedural and serialized elements. James Lassiter and Jada Pinkett Smith are exec producing for Overbrook with Straczynski.

L.A.-based Georgeville, headed by producer Marc Rosen, is backed by Indian conglom Reliance Entertainment company and another Reliance subsidiary, London-based Motion Picture Capital, run by Leon Clarance and Deepak Nayar. The company has made a splash after barely six months in business because it has the ability to finance its own projects. Georgeville is focused on developing high-end projects with international appeal that command straight-to-series orders.

Jim Goodman, Georgeville's newly appointed exec veep of business affairs, brokered the deal with ABC.

Straczynski is renowned in sci-fi circles as the steward of the enduring "Babylon 5" series/telepic franchise. In recent years he's fielded numerous features and the 2002-04 Showtime series "Jeremiah."

Streambaby and D-Link Verizon modem/router

Sat, 08/25/2012 - 00:38
Streambaby was working fine with my old Westell modem and Linksys wireless router. This week I installed the new Verizon D-Link 2750-B modem router. Getting this thing to work with the internet is a story in itself, involving many hour of calls to Verizon tech support in India, I have just spent another several hours trying to get Streambaby to work with the new router by adding firewall rules etc. Has anyone configured this modem to work with Strembaby. :mad:

New Tivo Premiere Tour videos

Fri, 08/24/2012 - 22:29
My Premiere just downloaded 3 new videos: "Basic DVR Features", "Advanced DVR Features" and "Web Features". These are different than the 6 old videos that normally download on a new box.

I guess they did need updating since things have changed since the original videos, but I was surprised when the blue light came on.

TiVo Series4 recording from camcorder

I want to record through a video camera to a TiVo Premiere Series4. Is this possible. I am a coach and want to film athletes than have the ability to rewind and show them while remain to record. Is this possible on this TiVo model and if so how? Any guidance, help, etc. is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

New SW 20.2.1.2

Fri, 08/24/2012 - 14:12
I just noticed that one of my Tivos was downloading some stuff via internet. I wondered if it was a software update, so I forced a connection on my other one. It seemed to download a good bit of data, then proceeded to download the same stuff via internet (blue light). Now I have three Tivo tour videos on both TiVos. The software is listed as 20.2.1.2. Is this a new version? I can't honestly recall what the version was before these downloads.

Edit to add: I don't see anything different and the one on which I forced a connection didn't ask for a reboot. It's only the long download followed by the demo videos that made me notice anything out of the ordinary.

Premier won't play Netflix titles...other devices do?

Fri, 08/24/2012 - 10:40
Love TiVo but...
About three weeks ago sometime after the incomprehensible dumbing down Netflix App was forced on me I found that whenever I get to the actual "play" button all we see is the "loading" screen for 20-30 seconds with no change in the percent load, followed by a pop-up message saying they are having trouble playing this title now and please play something else.
Of course every title does this.

I can even search titles and add them to my queue which then allows me to play them through my ROKU or the Panasonic internet capable TV which all three devices are connected to. Both work perfectly for netflix through my ethernet connections, and all of these are identical.

Here are just the answer emails between support and I. You don't have to read them just know it still doesn't work, and their comment in the last (top) email of "as this is a known issue that we are having with the TiVo boxes" informs me this is THEIR PROBLEM.

Anyone else?

Hello Carl,

Thank you for the updated information you provided. I have read through the previous contacts as well and would be glad to continue helping you with your questions today.

We are sorry to hear that you are having that issue with your TiVo box. With the troubleshooting that we have tried this far there are a couple things that we have not tried yet that we would like to see if that helps the issue that you are experiencing. First, I would like you try unlinking you account from Netflix on the TiVo box. Settings & Messages > Account & System Info > Netflix Account Info > Deactivate this device. Once you do that you will link the account again by signing in through your TiVo box. Once in, please try selecting a new title and see if it plays or you get the error message.

Second, if that doesn't work I would like you to try unplugging the TiVo box for about 30 seconds and plugging it back in. Once restarted repeat the steps to see if Netflix will play a show or movie, if you still have issues, please let us know.


Sincerely,
Sarah

Hello Carl,

Thank you for the updated information you provided. I have read through the previous contacts as well and would be glad to continue helping you with your ongoing Netflix issue.

Since we cannot see your Netflix queue specifically, could you test this with the program "Heroes" season 1, episode 1? This episode is known to be working on our in-house TiVo boxes.

Can you also please try changing your video output settings? You can do this from Messages & Settings > Settings > Video > Video Output Formats. Specifically, if you could try with as many of these settings as your TV would allow and let us know if you see any difference, we would greatly appreciate it.
-480i only
-720p only
-1080i only
-1080p only

Additionally, were you able to test YouTube? Could you play video there? Could you also please test one of the Hulu Plus sample videos to see if you receive the same error?

Thank you very much for your patience, and good luck.


Sincerely,
Corina

We are sorry to hear that you are having that issue with your TiVo box. In order to do some further research with this issue for you, what are some of the titles that are not working on your Netflix account through the TiVo box? Is this happening with all the titles that you are trying to pull up? We look forward to your response. Thank you in advance.

Hello Carl,

Thank you for the updated information you provided. I have read through the previous contacts as well and would be glad to continue helping you with your Netflix error message.

Can you please give us the full error message you receive when you get the blank screen? Additionally, can you check the standard definition menus to see if they have the same error when accessing Netflix? You can switch menus from TiVo Central > Messages & Settings > Settings > Displays > Choose TiVo Menus, and Netflix will be in the Video On Demand section.

Additionally, does YouTube seem to be working all right?

Please let us know, and good luck.

Hello Carl,

Thank you for contacting TiVo Customer Support. I apologize for the troubles you've had with Netflix. I would be more than happy to help you with this!

Please go to 'TiVo Central > Settings & messages > Settings > Channels > Video Provider List'.

Once you have reached this menu, de-select Netflix from the list of Video Providers.

Next, please go to TiVo Central by pressing the TiVo logo at the top of your remote. While on TiVo Central, press the following buttons in sequence on your TiVo Remote - Thumbs Down, Thumbs Up, Play, Play. If entered correctly, the TiVo will appear to reboot.

Once you're able to access TiVo Central, go to Settings & messages > Settings > Channels > Video Provider List. Finally, re-select Netflix.

Please contact us again if you have any questions or concerns and we would be happy to help you. Thank you for choosing TiVo and have a great day!

Big Brother - 8/23/2012

Fri, 08/24/2012 - 07:30
What an awesome episode! Britney's DR phone call from Janelle and saying Boogie wasn't there to answer was great. And I was glad to see Boogie pretty much admit that Ian was just doing what he taught him to do.

Joe's silent plea right before the vote was hilarious. I had to rewind and watch it again. :D

The only downside is that Frank truly is like a cockroach. You just can't kill him. They are going to have to back-door him to make it stick.

Tivo gets an extender!

Fri, 08/24/2012 - 06:54
Saw this over at The Missing Remote (which is, ironically, an HTPC website). Tivo's IP-STB extender has just been announced for fall release. Here's a link. There's a link to Tivo's full press release in the article. It appears that this is only going to be offered to GCI subscribers, but it will be interesting to see if Tivo expands the offering to the general public at a later date. I'd be curious to see if this device can link to more than one Tivo on a home network.

Suits "High Noon" 8/23/2012

Fri, 08/24/2012 - 05:34
C'mon, Mike. You have a peep hole in your door for a reason. After watching him open the door without checking who was there twice already in the same episode, I knew it was going to be Rachel at the end and that he was going to open the door without looking again. I even yelled "Look through the peep hole, you moron!" in my head. But no, the writers were determined to make Mike be an idiot. Naked, hot chick in your bed = "Don't answer the door".

I had actually gotten to like and sympathize with Louis in the last five or six episodes. He was a total a-hole in this one and now I'm back to hating him.

I'll throw my shoe at the tv if Rachel EVER give Mike the time of day again.
