IP set-top box works with the TiVo Premiere Q Only?

Mon, 05/21/2012 - 10:00
http://finance.yahoo.com/news/tivo-e...123000433.html

Maybe this has already been addressed/complained about, is this true that the IP set top box is only going to work with the "Q" model (whatever that is) and not the retail box that we all own?

Former House fans, watch series final ep?

Mon, 05/21/2012 - 10:00
We watched House for years, but gave up on it quite awhile ago. Trying to decide whether or not to invest the time to catch the series ending episode.

Opinions?

Replaced HDXL w/ Premiere, can I repurpose the HDXL HDD?

Mon, 05/21/2012 - 09:29
If I make a backup of the disk in my new Premiere can I then restore that to the HDD in my HD XL and use it in my Premiere? I haven't opened the Premiere up yet but I just wanted to ensure all the drive specs were the same before doing anything.

Mad Men S05E10 "Christmas Waltz" 5/20/2012

Mon, 05/21/2012 - 08:39
How long until the embezzlement blows up in Lane's face? Will they resolve it this year or will it be next? Will it take his marriage down with him?

Great to see Don and Joan have a little time together, I don't think we have ever really gotten them interacting before. Love that Joan really knows the level of charm Don has and that Don really has no idea how charming he is. Loved the line, "I guess you can tell them I struck out." "No one will believe that".

Joan, who would want a single mother with an infant? Roger.

Was Peggy in this episode at all?

Networking: Watch recordings from one box, on another?

Mon, 05/21/2012 - 07:48
I'm wondering if it's possible to watch recordings from one Tivo Premiere (Life) on another Tivo (not subscribed to any service) over a hard wired LAN?

WITHOUT copying/transferring the files = direct playback from the main one to the other.

I've played with some other network connections and had some success, so I think it's likely possible - but just checking.

Our current, 2nd Tivo lives only as a cable box (w/cablecard) - it would be nice to add hassle free playback to it if this is possible (and the cabling is run to implement it).

Discovery bar frustrating- Ideas for how to navigate it better ?

Mon, 05/21/2012 - 07:32
The discovery bar is very frustrating. If I am looking at my list of shows and I see an interesting item in the discovery bar, I have to use the up arrow to get there. That can be be very inefficient if I am at the bottom of my show list. Another thing that frequently happens is that I am the top of some list, hit the up arrow, and it wont let me go up (and you get the BONK failure sound), and then a second or two later it will let me go up, but only after it has changed to a new set of suggestions.

The most frustration is when the combination of the two occur, and I finally up arrow all the way up to the top of my show list, and then it wont let me get to the docovery bar untill it has updated it with new items.

Does anyone have any tips for how to better use the discovery bar ?

Tivo & Pace Team Up on 6-tuner Gateway

Mon, 05/21/2012 - 00:26
http://www.multichannel.com/article/...eo_Gateway.php

Boston — TiVo and Pace are providing details of their first jointly developed product, the Pace XG1, a six-tuner hybrid QAM/IP video gateway featuring TiVo's user interface to be available to operators in the Americas later this year.

The companies announced their partnership in February 2012 to develop set-tops and gateways. TiVo and Pace expect to follow the XG1 with additional solutions for domestic and international operators.

The Pace XG1 includes six tuners, an integrated DOCSIS 3.0 modem, and at least 500 Gigabytes of on-board storage. It will use TiVo's whole-home capabilities, such as multiroom streaming and support for both traditional set-top boxes and the potential for IP client devices, as well as support for TiVo's mobile and tablet applications.

The gateway runs on Broadcom's BCM7425 dual high-definition, dual-transcoding hybrid gateway set-top box system-on-a-chip that offers 3000 DMIPS (Dhrystone million instructions per second) of processing power. The Pace XG1 will support Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA) 2.0 and includes Broadcom's BCM3383 DOCSIS 3.0 8-by-4 chip for up to 320 Mbps down and 120 Mbps upstream.

"This partnership will make the TiVo experience easily accessible to more cable operators than ever before," David Sandford, vice president and general manager of TiVo's service provider business, said in a statement. "It will provide operators a best-in-class advanced television solution that they can quickly and cost-effectively deploy and will serve as the gateway to a rapidly expanding choice of content across multiple screens through TiVo's whole-home solutions."

Tim O'Loughlin, president of Pace Americas, added, "There is no denying that the current climate for operators is immensely competitive, and we have been hearing more and more frequently from this community that TiVo is a user experience that they want to offer."

U.S. operators currently deploying TiVo offerings to their customers include Charter Communications, DirecTV, Suddenlink Communications, RCN and Grande Communications, and European operators include the U.K.'s Virgin Media and Spain's ONO.

Game of Thrones - "The Prince of Winterfell" - S02E08 5/20/12

Sun, 05/20/2012 - 21:11
As usual, so much happened this episode, I know I've already forgotten some of it! Why does the hour go so damn fast??

Robb.... saw that coming a mile away. I knew they'd get it on. But Cat letting Jaimie go was STUPID. WTF was she thinking?? How did she think Robb would be okay with that? Ugh.

Tyrion's face when he saw Ros instead of Shae was masterclass acting. God I love Dinklage so much I can't even take it. So I assume Ros realized she was some kind of replacement for who Cersei was really after. That's some dedication right there for her to keep her trap shut. I don't fully understand why she would do that for him. And I guess he and Varys have reached some kind of friendship? I wanted to wipe that smile off Cercei's face. Great acting on Tyrion's part to her to sell the fact that Ros was his "whore".

Oh Jon Snow... I'm really fearful for him at this point. I don't know what else to say. I hope they don't go the route of the wildling chick falling for him.

Arya and Gendry get out of Harrenhal! Dude is really creepy though. I cannot ever remember his name without looking it up.. it's too odd. You know who I mean. His way of speaking is odd even for this show/time. He was freaked when she named him though, liked that. Wasn't surprised though, she's a smart smart girl.

So Stannis names Davos as his hand. I kinda thought that was a given. Apparently not to Davos. Is there anyone more loyal to Stannis than him??

Lastly, Dany Dany. She's a bit full of herself. I hope she isn't leading Jorah to his death here. I will be rightly pissed if he dies because she's so convinced of her own uber specialness and demands they go to the house of the undead.

Is it next Sunday yet?? Only 2 episodes remain this season. That is so depressing!!!!

Sporadic Sound with Elite?

Sun, 05/20/2012 - 15:56
Does anyone experience sound dropouts with their Elite? My sound sporadically drops out when I'm performing any of the following:
  • When I first turn on my devices. The TiVo is always on so I turn on the TV, then my BluRay Home Theater and then I select the input for TiVo (which is all HDMI). When all is up and running, there's no sound and I wind up having to power everything off and start again. One night I had to do it 7 times for the sound to finally come on.
  • When I stop fast forwarding or rewinding. Sometimes after a couple of minutes the sound comes back but most of the time I have to either power everything off then on or switch channels. So weird.
  • When I press the TiVo button and get to the menu.
  • When I press Zoom or Live TV to get out of the TiVo menu.
  • After returning from any of the Manage Recordings & Downloads submenus.
  • Sometimes while I'm watching a live or recorded program, the sound will just drop out. Sometimes I think maybe it was in the broadcast but the sound never comes back until I either switch channels or power off then on. When I resume where I was if it were a recorded program, the sound was always there and it was not a broadcast glitch.
  • When I press Play for a recorded program.
  • When if I mute the sound and when I unmute the sound doesn't come back.
  • If and when after I've either watched a DVD on my BluRay or watched an AllShare file from my computer onto my TV and I then switch to the cable input to watch TiVo, there's no sound.

Everytime the sound drops out, and that's been a bunch of times, I always test everything else. The TV is fine on it's own, my BluRay player plays DVDs with sound but it's when I engage the TiVo that things get wacky. I have a cable card w/Cablevision (yuck but it's the only option I have.)

American Guns - Second season

Sun, 05/20/2012 - 15:53
I enjoyed season 1 but not too fond of the changes in season 2. We don't need any of the manufactured drama amongst the gunsmiths, nor the manufactured drama between sis and brother. In season 1 I said they need to lose the sister, but for season 2 they are inserting her everywhere.

Also don't need all of the explosions. But with all that said, I still enjoy seeing the guns, learning some history, and watching them build guns.

Premire XL "Tivo Central" glitches

Sun, 05/20/2012 - 13:49
For the last week or so, have been having issues about every two days with Tivo Central. When I go there, all the info is pixelized to the point of gibberish, just a bunch of lines and scramble. A reboot always brings it back, but then, about two days later, same problem. Anyone else experiencing this, or know a cause or cure?

SD TV from THR22?

Sun, 05/20/2012 - 12:19
Anybody know of a way to run a old sd tv on my patio from a thr22? It's about a 30' coax run that worked fine before I upgraded. I've tried an RCA adapter on the cable at the TiVo and just get static.

Need suggestion on replacing HP LX195 Home Server for use with Streambaby

Sun, 05/20/2012 - 10:46
I have a Premiere and have been using Streambaby for a few years now playing MP4s with an HP Home Media Server LX195.

Apparently, HP no longer makes these servers. Is there a similar product that would work well for Streambaby/Tivo?

Please let me know. Thank you.

Between Tivos, but want to find shows...Wishlist substitute

Sun, 05/20/2012 - 08:32
I am between Tivo units (SAT0T60 situation).

Have FIOS TV, now.

While I am trying to figure what to do, I am looking for a website that let's me enter programs/shows, movies that I want, then will text or email me when one is in range (a week or few from air date).

Any helps? Comments? Ideas?

Tivo HD keeps restarting

Sun, 05/20/2012 - 01:03
My Tivo HD keeps freezing (image freezes on screen) and then rebooting. I can watch it for about five minutes after it reboots and then the cycle starts again.

To make a long story short, I'm curious as to whether a lack of sufficient power to the Tivo could cause it to restart. It's getting power, but I'm wondering if a new receiver could be causing the Tivo to not get enough power, which might lead to the reboots.

Here is the longer version of the story:

I've read the old thread on this:
http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb...d.php?t=393114

I think my problem may be different, though - in that thread the problems seem to be related to either a 2008 software update and/or bad hard drives - and was hoping for some feedback from people who know more about this stuff than I do.

I got a new receiver a few days ago. The problem never occurred before that, so that makes me think the receiver has something to do with it. The hard drive could certainly have gone bad, but that's quite a coincidence.

I have an old APC UPS in my home entertainment center where the battery died and some of the outlets don't work. I plugged a power strip into one of the working outlets and plugged my stuff into the power strip. This was a few years ago, and I've never had any problems.

I'm wondering, though, whether maybe my new Onkyo receiver could be drawing more juice than my old JVC receiver which could be causing the Tivo to get insufficient power and would cause the restarts. Before I spend $200 or whatever on a new UPS, I thought I'd check to see if I'm onto something or if the problem has to be something else (like the hard drive).
