Remote viewing of recordings and live tv?

Wed, 10/31/2012 - 12:14
I had thought that Tivo was coming out with a way to watch recordigs and live tv from a remote location kind of like a slingbox. Maybe I misread a past post...I haven't been active here in quite a while.

I am going to be out of the country and would love to watch recorded shows and live tv while abroad.

HIMYM. New episodes?

Wed, 10/31/2012 - 10:35
My Dvr (Comcast, not TiVo) has only recorded the first 2 or 3 of the current season. Nothing since. Has there been new episodes on? Looking back through the DVR manager it had some. Weird error on one show that was new this past Monday but the Monday before that it showed a repeat. I also couldn't find it OnDemand and I didn't see any new threads here?

Is a TiVo Series 2 Worth Upgrading?

Wed, 10/31/2012 - 09:02
After 4 or 5 years of watching/recording basic cable and digital antenna, I decided to go digital with Time Warner and ordered the cable card. Now all of my recordings on my TiVo Series 3 are copy protected - even the channels I on basic cable.

My solution was to get lifetime on my old Series 2 and hook cable directly to it. That works fine but the hard drive is small and it keeps warning other programs will be deleted early.

I don't care to download ALL my progrms to the computer so here's my question: Is this Series 2 TiVo worth upgrading to a larger hard drive?
Or is it too obsolete and liable to get other problems soon?

How many people still use an old Series 2?


30 Rock is new WEDNESDAY 10/31, not Thursday, replacing Animal Practice

Wed, 10/31/2012 - 07:11
NBC bumped their entire Thursday to rerun Monday's The Voice, but because this 30 Rock is based on the election, it gets shown a day early.

upgraded Premiere boot loop after fall update

Wed, 10/31/2012 - 07:03
I have 3 Premiere's.....2 of them are the XL version and 1 is the regular version I updated with a 1GB drive. Last night, all 3 Tivo's received the fall update. However, the upgraded one is now boot looping.

I'm thinking my only option is to put the original drive back in, apply the fall update, then copy that image back over to the original 1gb drive that was in the tivo. If this is done, i obviously lose my recordings but what other options do I have?

Any suggestions?

Moving - going from FIOS to Time Warner in Milwaukee burbs

Tue, 10/30/2012 - 23:26
Moving to Milwaukee burbs, had a choice of U-verse and Time Warner..looks like TWC ony one that supports TiVo. Any pointers? Running XL4 off Fios MOCA and an HD XL off wifi G. Does TWC do moca? Ive poked thru the forums and didnt see anything conclusive. So much easier and faster using Moca.

Dancing With the Stars 10/30/2012 Results Show

Tue, 10/30/2012 - 23:09
Yes, this is the results show thread. Since the results show recaps the performance show, discussion of both shows for this week (as well as all previously aired shows) is fair game.

I am happy to see Sabrina go home. Just like I was happy to see her go early the first time she was on the show. I really don't enjoy anything about her. And I don't think I'm the only one since she doesn't get the audience votes.

I'm glad Apolo and Karina danced an encore. I thought they deserved the perfect score for that one.

And no elimination next week due to the election.

Crap, Derek isn't going to dance next week and Shawn will be with Mark. Ugh, I can't stand Mark.

10/30/12 Hurricane Sandy preemptions

Tue, 10/30/2012 - 22:14
The lead-in to the ABC Primetime shows tonight says that "The Perfect Storm" will be airing at 10:00 PM -- Zap2It reveals that this is an episode of 20/20 about Hurricane Sandy.

So that means no new Private Practice tonight.

I'm changing the SP from First Run to all with duplicates to get around the 28-day rule problems.

Fall Update - Shows deleted that didn't need to be

Tue, 10/30/2012 - 21:53
I relate this story in case others are in my position and don't want to lose recordings that have no reason to be deleted.

I installed 20.2.2 today.

Before that, I had a number of recordings that were expired. Disk usage was 92%. I have most recordings KUID. So not all future recordings were scheduled to record because of a future disk space problem. (You don't need to tell me I'm doing it "wrong". I'm doing it this way for my own reasons.)

After the install, I noticed my disk usage was 87%. I puzzled over that until I realize that all my expired recordings had been deleted.

For instance, "This show was deleted because space was needed to record other shows on 10/30 at 10:49pm".

But space wasn't needed. I still have about 50 recordings in the deleted folder.

So I believe there is an error in the new software that deletes expired recordings even when the space is not needed. I'm hoping this is one-time only at the install, rather than a continuing issue.

And my main reason for mentioning this is to give others in my situation a chance to change expired recordings that they may want to watch so they aren't deleted during the install.

PyTiVo machine icon is now "!"!

Tue, 10/30/2012 - 19:59
Maybe I missed this somewhere in all the chatter, but after the Fall 2012 update, my Linux machine running PyTiVo which is connected to the Premiere now appears as an exclamation point (!) in the My Shows listing. It used to be an icon of a computer.

Is this supposed to mean something special? I tested pulling a video and playing it from the computer and it works fine.

Unreliable Tivo Stream

Tue, 10/30/2012 - 19:45
I've had Stream for over a month now. It is hooked up to my Premiere (ethernet to the router). The setup works and I am able to watch the stream on my iPhone5 and my iPad.

However, a lot of the times (I would say 7 out of 10) - the connection keeps dropping (even when I am in the same room as the stream/tivo/tv). I have a small house so I am never more than 30 feet away from the stream. When I reboot the stream box, it starts to work again and can find the stream again.

This is very frustrating. I've paid for the stream box and also paid Verizon FIOS to get my router moved next to the TV/TiVO - and still can not really use this product. I am never sure that I will be able to watch stream in my bed - or I will have to go downstairs to reboot the box.

Are the others not having this issue? I can not believe this is unique to me.

Connect old Tivo's to new XL?

Tue, 10/30/2012 - 18:20
I recently purchased a Premiere XL. It is located in the living room. I have 2 other tv's in which I would like to watch the same high def signal on. Currently I have coax running to the other tv's.

I also have 2 HR 10-250 boxes from when I had D*. Is there a way to connect all of the Tivo boxes? Or would an HDMI splitter be the best way to go along with new HDMI wiring? Or is there a way to use the coax to distribute the signal? Thanks.

Letterman 10-29-12

Tue, 10/30/2012 - 17:00
Surprised Letterman put on a show with no audience. I was a little bit disturb when Alan Kalter comes storming in eight minutes into the show pissed off to the world basically calling Letterman an a**hole for not letting him know there was a show that night. If I was Letterman and this wasn't some preplanned skit I would have told Kalter to go home and stay home.

Slow menu (delays) in SD menus

Tue, 10/30/2012 - 16:33
I have an XL4 and use the SD menus and am still on version 2.2.1. The time it takes for a menu to dispilay has started to lag maybe 2-4 seconds. The yellow light flashes right away but there is a significant delay before the menu is displayed, and sometime it will paint part of the menu before filling in the rest of the information. Any ideas.
