The Real World St. Thomas

Thu, 06/28/2012 - 13:26
Brandon is an IV drug addict who had only been clean 6 months. Good job casting director. His notebook showed how unstable he is. Someday somebody on one of these shows is going to truly run amok.

No gay person this season.

Why did the drunk girl think there wouldn't be enough alcohol provided for them and had to stop at the store on the way? Geez, alcoholic at age 21 (or whatever age she is).

NFL shifting second game of doubleheaders to 4:25 ET

Thu, 06/28/2012 - 11:58
This is REALLY going to screw up CBS' Sunday night schedule. I hope (but I doubt) that CBS finally gets smart and does what Fox does, not schedule anything concrete during the 7-8 hour and shows a highlights package instead. There is some reason why they insist on 60 Minutes starting before 8PM on Sundays. I am not sure what that is. I watch 60 Minutes, but think they could table it until the season is over, and perhaps schedule special editions on weeks where there is no late game.

Where are the refurb Elite / XL4 ?

Thu, 06/28/2012 - 10:48
I've never seen any elite or xl4 refurbs for sale. We all know plenty had been sent in for warranty work. So where is TiVo stashing them? I missed out on woot and wouldn't mind an elite in the $300 range.

Delete wishlist recordings from My Shows

Thu, 06/28/2012 - 02:05
Hi all. I am brand new to the TIVO Premiere XL. I am enjoying it but have a question. I have recorded some episodes of Mentalist using a Wishlist. I then changed it to record all episodes via Season Pass. On the My Shows list, there is a folder for Mentalist with 16 shows and a folder for the wishlist Mentalist with 12 shows, all of which also exist in the 16 show folder. Are those actually duplicate recordings or simply duplicate lists of the shows recorded? If I delete the wishlist folder will I lose shows from the Season Pass folder?



If I switch cable providers, will my season pass auto update?

Wed, 06/27/2012 - 22:10
I'm ditching FIOS and moving to Comcast next week. I've read mixed reports on whether or not the Season Pass will auto update. Anyone care to share thier experiences?

So You Think You Can Dance S906 6/27/12 meet the top 20

No results show this year. Two winners.

Mixing it up this year.

Crappy PQ -- I just tweaked my antenna and I'm still seeing pixelation. But what do you know? Picture is perfect during the commercials.


How to keep tivo guide without cable TV?

Wed, 06/27/2012 - 19:50
I'd like to get rid of my cable, but keep track of a show airs on TruTV. I wrote the music for the show and I need to keep track of when/how often it plays to collect my royalties. Currently I just have a season pass, go through my tivo and write down the dates/times.

Is there anyway I can find this info online? Like a TV guide that I can search for upcoming episodes to keep track of it that way?

Goodbye cable...hello streaming everything.

Fios' free copying to end

The grim news, from DSLReports:


The letter says "certain premium channels", so hopefully it will be confined to that (i.e. not even all the premiums).

Snap, Crackle and Pop Over HDMI?

Wed, 06/27/2012 - 17:09
I recently had to swap the location of my Tivo HD with my Tivo Premiere (due to the netflix issue on the Tivo HD - you can read about it in the Tivo Help Center forum), which meant switching my Tivo HD from using the component and RCA audio jacks to using HDMI.

With the Tivo HD on HDMI, I get crackling and popping on the audio whenever moving from program to program or from program to menu and vice-versa. This noise wasn't present on the component/RCA audio.

Note, the HDMI is hooked directly to the TV and not through a receiver (some people have recommended changing settings on a receiver for this issue).

Anyone ever find a solution for this issue?


THR22-100 Overheating?

Wed, 06/27/2012 - 15:21
So far I've had zero results 'Searching' for this problem, yet I cannot believe I'm the only one having it! It's not an Isolated case, because BOTH of my THR22-100's Overheat! :confused:

If anyone knows of such a Post, perhaps labeled differently OR is aware of this problem, PLEASE reply! I have a rather large Desk fan trying to keep the temps reasonable.

Otherwise at times, it will reboot whenever too overheated, and of course if it was recording, the recorded show will be split into two pieces with an about 10-15 minute break in the middle of the recording! :mad:

Much of what I've seen in the Forum are about HR10-250s overheating. I have two of them AND a TiVo XL standalone and NONE of the three are overheating! Only the THR22-100! :(

Thanks, Bert

Should I take TiVo's offer for a 45 hr TiVo Premiere?

Wed, 06/27/2012 - 14:59
So, first my old Series 1 died and now my Series 2 has died. I didn't really want to upgrade, somewhat content with the Comcast DVR. I called to cancel but the rep offered me a free 45 hr TiVo Premiere ($300 value) with service at $19.99/mo.

Is it worth it? Should I take the deal? Is there any chance two-way cablecards are on the horizon? I like my on demand.

Comcast started shutting down the 200 channels

Wed, 06/27/2012 - 14:50
I noticed today that Comcast in Delaware started shutting down the HD channels in the 200 range which were duplicated in the 800 range. The Tivo Guide still shows them on the grid but there is nothing but a black screen when I tune them in. I've received one Tivo message talking about the move but some of the shows in My To Do list didn't migrate up to the 800 channels. Just wondering if anyone else has been through this and what I should expect in terms of timing, etc.

TiVo Reps, Xfinity on demand rollout timetable?

Wed, 06/27/2012 - 13:33
Would it be possible for a TiVo rep to comment on the approximate rollout timetable for "the rest of us"? I am apparently in a non-rollout area of southern NH 03087 surrounded by those with access. Since my town and a few others were left out I'm guessing our access is more difficult and we will be at the tail end...

So, when is the expected tail end of the rollout, that time when all Comcast customers will be enabled?


Any details on Tivo Stream and IP-TV boxes?

Wed, 06/27/2012 - 13:15
I have 2 Premieres and 1 HD system with lifetime, but I'm interested in getting rid of the HD to gain the streaming ability the Premiere's have.

However, I noticed that Tivo is releasing some new products this summer: Tivo Stream and IP TV. I understand Tivo Stream is for streaming to iPad, iPhone, etc. What exactly will the IP TV do? Will it need the 4 tuner premiere to function properly?

I don't want to buy a regular Premiere if the IP TV will accomplish what I want in an easier way.

Property Wars Premiers July 12th on Discovery

The business is crazy so I'm hoping for good things on the show!

Copyrights & Trademarks reboot

Wed, 06/27/2012 - 10:30
I was just leaping around in TiVo menus checking out things I rarely look at. When I selected the Copyrights & Trademarks item (under Sys Info) it brought up a blank screen (except for the header). The Left Arrow was unresponsive so I pressed the TiVo button to get out of it and my TiVo re-booted.

Maybe I violated a trade mark somewhere and I'm being punished, but I think I'll stay out of that page.

hey everyone just passing through just want to say HI :)

How does the free episode of the Newsroom work?

Tue, 06/26/2012 - 21:10
Where is it streaming from?

I don't remember another example of a free episode showing up like this. (There have been/are other free episodes from e.g. amazon downloads -- and I'll probably check if this ep is available as a download too, since then I would be able to save my place if I want to stop watching.)

Independence Day Parade in Washington, DC

Tue, 06/26/2012 - 19:35
Does anyone know if this is being televised nationally? My daughter is marching in it, her school is representing NJ. If not, are there any kind folks in the DC area who could record it for me and send it to me? I'll pay for shipping and media.
