Is there a way to stream movies from my windows PC to my Tivo Premiere? Also, what other Windows apps are available besides Tivo Desktop

Tivo HD - no sound until reboot

Tue, 09/04/2012 - 16:13
I am having an issue with my Tivo HD, which has not been modified in any way. The problem is that on three occasions in the past two months I have had to reset the box to fix a no audio problem. I do hear the Tivo beeps but there is no audio on live or recorded shows. The Tivo is connected to the TV via an HDMI cable, and there is also a digital audio connection to the AVR and the sound is affected through both of these connections. I have it connected this way so that I can either just listen though the TV via the HDMI, or use the surround sound system. The last couple of times this happened I switched between the two to make sure the audio was affected through both connections. I have the issue right now but am not rebooting in case there is something else I can do. Is this an issue others have seen or perhaps the Tivo is failing? I have lifetime service on this Tivo, but I believe that only applies to the Tivo service and not the hardware. Thanks!

Spoiler poll - Journey or Destination?

Tue, 09/04/2012 - 16:00
I am definitely a journey guy, I try to avoid spoilers but if I see them I don't let it ruin it for me. Also I don't get all bent out of shape when visiting a TV board and someone lets something slip. It would be like complaining when putting your hand over a candle and trying to move it before you got burned.

OTA NBC Bay Area 11.1 KNTV "To Be Announced"

Tue, 09/04/2012 - 14:30
We left Dtv a several months back for an OTA + Tivo solution. All has been working splendidly until about a month ago.

Channel 11.1 KNTV NBC now only shows "To Be Announced" for all guide data. I can tune to that channel and watch what's there, which comes in great. But I can't use Tivo to schedule recordings.

Anyone else in the Bay Area having this issue? Tivo support has been of no help on this.

Channel Banner Sizes?

Tue, 09/04/2012 - 13:36

I just upgraded to Premiere from HDXL. The Premiere users manual says

"The channel banner displays the show’s title, description, ratings, and other information. It
appears whenever you change the channel. To view the channel banner while watching a show,
press INFO.
The channel banner can be displayed in three different sizes. Press the RIGHT arrow cycle
through the sizes of the channel banner. Press the LEFT arrow or CLEAR to hide it."

When I press the right arrow it seems to have no effect. When I did that in my XLHD it worked as expected.

Any ideas?

Thanks Andy

My TiVo Not Working - TiVo Not Helping

Tue, 09/04/2012 - 13:09
I have had an ongoing issue for months now where my tivo simply does not work for me. It does not matter what browser or machine I use it just does not pull up information.

I have tested using other family member credentials and I immediately see what I would expect. I have logged support calls and sent PM's to TiVo employees on this forum. Nothing.

If anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear them.

HD upgrade, replacing Series 2?

Tue, 09/04/2012 - 11:02
Hi all. Your patience and help is appreciated in advance! I've searched the forums and the rest of the net, but I still can't seem to nail the best solution to this probably typical issue, at least not in a way I can fully understand, yet.

I've had the Humax DVD-R/RW Recorder/TiVo Series2 DVR Combo for many years. Feels like it's getting near its last legs - quirky behavior now and then, and a mildly noisier hard drive, but nothing catastrophic yet.

What's catastrophic is that I finally, finally, got around to getting an HDTV! After years of only thinking about it. But I guess I should have thought more about it, since it opens up a can of worms now that it's up and running.

I have Verizon FIOS. And now this big HDTV. But the TiVo/Humax box isn't loving this, of course. I'm running out of the cable box with S-Video cables into the TiVo, since there is no HDMI in, and at least until later tonight, I ran out of component cables. So as a result, I'm getting a not-great SD signal to this great TV (component cables from TiVo to TV.) A Blu-Ray player running totally separately, purely with HDMI, looks great. But everything else looks worse than it did on my 8 year old SD TV.

I see now there are complications. I dig TiVo and particularly love the DVD burner integrated. But at what cost (picture-wise)?

I'm seeing now, so many years after getting that Humax Series2, there is an HD option there with TiVo? So I can run HDMI out of the cable box into the TiVo and then run HDMI out to the TV. But is there any new box like that that can also burn DVDs of recordings? I'm assuming that if a newer TiVo box is storing HD files, burning SD DVDs becomes an issue. Cake and eat it too?

Anyone else have something very similar? Recommendations?

Thanks so much.

Old tivo image tcd540040

Tue, 09/04/2012 - 09:12

Ive been looking in the forum lately, for a way to get an old image of the tivo tcd540040.

I explain, I bought an old tivo series 2 tcd540040. I was planning to use it as a personal video recorder for my training. Actually, I want to plug a video camera to record my training. But when I've received the tivo it was stuck on the welcome screen. I suppose its the hard drive, So I want to put a new hard drive in it just to be able to record, but I need an image. It doesn't need to be a new image since I'm not gonna use it to watch tv... I wont even plug it to an antenna or anything else.

So here I don't really want to buy a brand new image from instantcake, since I'm not even gonna use it... Is there anyway I can make it work without buying an image?

(if I'm not suppose to use the tivo with a camera and if i'm not suppose to talk about it here, I'm sorry I didn't knew it. I will erase my thread)



In The Cheap Clothing To Get Started._65

Within the Low cost Clothes To have Started.
For this subject given that three, a tale. Right after all, not Scotland that can skirt the fundamental incredibly little understanding. I'll continue to ramble several factors: a directory of the outline this afternoon seems an east and west turn snakeof course as well as skirt starts to talk about.

A weekend put on down Arsenal move out to loiter about, evening at a carrefour supermarket underground their power plaza to eat Fried pond powder. Standing at a Lowcost Clothes was staring in the front end of the dance up and down in his hand above shovel stunned, next towards two master (so required. All of a sudden a head asked me out down is exactly where you might get, brand name, I maintain detailed mutually inform, a couple master incredibly satisfied, I see his eyes are glazed easily over the tail of a terrific white independent blunt WE show the show towards the outdoors of his slacks Arsenal badge. "Oh also oh, ha, ha, ', " I nodded beckoned to appreciate why he will demand this query, preserve smile took the corners inside the mouth from the canal handed powder, finish to fairly far spot to sit back and began to eat. Meet Arsenal fans is usually a pleased, just worried which possess a meal of your Affordable Clothes he will stare at my clothes appear, as well as his watch inside the similar camp before the actual sake nevertheless only give me just somewhat clip the material sole their deep discontent.

Prior to November 11, should really the taobao make activities, taobao mall about the issues are five collapse, it is mentioned any unique a single day a breakthrough A few billion turnover. I do not possess the habit of ecommerce, invest in sugar ahead of as soon as registered clean out treasure account has in addition don't don't forget the label. Then there is the news that taobao mall is very first the price up up to price cut (and not see basis), individual feels this news just is not rather correct, because everyone I am afraid early stepped for a point, if is false discount won't have a lot more to fall into that trap. The seller needless to say will not do company within a loss, so fifty percent is inside making capital, therefore it can be seen even relatively cheap tariff from the shop, and revenue, and profit margin a number of digits above. The early years in true estate property home business cry poor said the true estate business enterprise profit margins as catering business plus the clothing business, a hardeyed as well as, indeed, is an actuality.

In all dress at this time there, I believe the tariff from the dress most vacant tall (ultimately wrote skirt)a style after QunXi, pick excellent material belstaffjacket-s.org/belstaff-men-classic-tourist-trophy-trialmaster-jacket-antique-p-41/:belstaffjacket-s.org/belstaff-men-classic-tourist-trophy-trialmaster-jacket-antique-p-41/]{Belstaff Men Classic Tourist Trophy Trialmaster Jacket Antique Belstaff Men Classic Tourist Trophy Trialmaster Jacket Antique 20263 }, some hang decorate, a Inexpensive Clothing is emerged (this approach for I think only, untruths please point out that... ). With makings is in all probability the least outside besides socks, but additionally can sell for a number of. I to skirt nothing at all at all particular feeling, or choose dust coat and footwear, and for leopard grain and silk socks, applying slightly inconsistent attitude.

Breaking Bad question (no spoilers)

Is there any place on line I can see Season 5 episodes 2-8? I just discovered this show and watched seasons 1-4 on Netflix, and would love to be caught up.

Good coax splitter?

Mon, 09/03/2012 - 22:51
Experiencing major pixelation on my Elite on a few different channels periodically. Also experiencing it on a Series 3 in a different room every so often.

Cable company has a 3 way splitter in the box outside.

I also have a 2 way splitter where it comes into the main room. One to the Elite and one to the broadband connection.

Any recommendations for a better splitter to put outside? Should i also get a better one in the main room?

I have also seen mention of amps, but don't know much about them. Should I get one of those instead? Where should I put it?


Preparing for Tivo Premiere XL4 setup on FIOS

Mon, 09/03/2012 - 22:12
How many cablecards should I order from Verizon for a Tivo Premiere XL4?

Guessing 2 M cards?

My searching is bringing up a lot of noise - can anyone point me to the best instructions for setting it up including troubleshooting (used to be on DSLReports for some weird reason)?

Also any prep advice is appreciated.

Amazon has just shipped the Tivo - I can call Verizon Tuesday to get cards.

Any Heat Issues With Premiere?

Mon, 09/03/2012 - 20:07
I just ordered a Premiere XL/4. I downloaded the manual and also checked out the dimensions...I was surprised that the Premiere is actually shorter and a few inches less deep than the TivoHD. Does the smaller case cause any problems with heat?

This will be going in a closed cabinet with a couple of TivoHD's and several other components. While I do have a fan in the back of the cabinet, there isn't a lot of extra space to help dissipate the heat...

Youtube missing on Tivo

Any news on the new TiVo SDK

Mon, 09/03/2012 - 19:20
I've been patiently waiting on the release on the new SDK but I am beginning to wonder if this is ever going to happen. Do any of the developers on here have early access to the SDK to comment on whether it is going to allow developing feature rich application.

Is Tivo EVER going to fix the awful Premiere software?

Mon, 09/03/2012 - 17:48
I am getting more and more frustrated every time I see my Premiere start up from standby frozen. Every few weeks I try to turn it on and the screen is black except for a window in the upper right paused on whatever I was watching when I put it on standby the night before. Nothing on the remote works - the yellow light on the unit flashes so it is getting there, but it is ignored. This seems to be separate from the "frozen remote" symptoms which fortunately I haven't seen this spring, but is even more frustrating because the only cure is to pull the power cord. Then you have to wait several minutes for it boot, and then endure terribly slow menus for a while until it finally starts working properly.

This bug has been present since I bought this two years ago. Seriously, does Tivo not give a damn about quality? My Series 2 was trouble free for 7 or 8 years until it finally bit the dust, and one would think a Series 4 is an upgrade. The two tuners and HD is certainly an upgrade, but the UI has gone downhill. If Tivo ever wishes to have a chance of getting people like me to invest in another one in the future this crap needs to be fixed before they waste time adding useless features like new UIs for Youtube, Amazon and Netflix. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE fix the glaring bugs and issues in the basic functionality before you spend more time on the extras! No one buys Tivo because the Netflix UI is cool, but people will stop buying it if even waking it up from standby is a crapshoot!!
