How awesome was that? Donny winning that comp may have just made the rest of this lackluster season worthwhile. :)

The Last Ship "Trials" (8/17/14) [SPOILERS!]

Sun, 08/17/2014 - 23:09
I always thought that you recovered vessels at the stern and not the bow of the ship. Because it's the lowest part of the boat. But, I guess it was more dramatic to walk all the way down the foredeck with Cossetti's body.

I picked the wrong red shirt in this ep. I thought for sure it would be Miller. But having Kara die, who lost both parents in 9/11 (one a firefighter, no less) does create more pathos.

It looks like Dr. Croft has indeed found "The Cure." Of course, it would have gone faster if she had administered two amps of Sodium Bicarb, then started an IV D5W, TKO with Ringer's Lactate. ;)

I think that the commander might have attended a few classes at the William Shatner School For Acting.

Tivo Desktop with Windows 8.1

Sun, 08/17/2014 - 16:09
I saw something similar to this post in the forums, but they were all several years old and I wanted to see whether there was something a bit more current.

I am running Windows 8.1 and using the free version of Desktop. I know Tivo says it won't support the free version on W8.1, but I also know others have been able to use it. I am able to transfer shows from my Tivo Premiere XL4 to my laptop, but when I try to play any of them, I get only audio -- no visual. I've Googled this extensively and everyone keeps pointing me to a CNet download (the message board isn't letting me post the link but it's "Media Player Codec Pack" on the CNet download site). It's highly rated both by CNet and users, but when I tried to download it, my antivirus flagged it as a trojan. I have a brand-new computer, so of course I'm leery of downloading something that will harm it.

My question is, where should I go to download something safe that will fix the codec errors I'm having? I've read some horrible things about K-Lite (or whatever it's called), so I'm a little leery of it. I'm not overly techy as far as going into the registry or whatever and changing settings -- I'd be afraid to do that.

Can someone recommend something that's safe and that will fix this issue? I'd really appreciate it...

Thanx,
Jamie

Romeo Plus w/2 Minis ???

Sun, 08/17/2014 - 15:29
Hi, all . . .

I’m a longtime Tivo Customer --- Been so since 1999 and am very pleased.
I currently have a Premier 4 in my Family Room and a Premier in my Bedroom along with a TiVo Stream. The Premier in my Bedroom is 3 years old, and the fan is starting to grind quite a bit and I fear the unit may be on the way out. As a result, I’m trying to be a bit proactive.

I use the Multiroom Streaming/Viewing quite a bit (with a MoCa Connection) and it works well. The frustration is that two different To-Do Lists need to be managed.

My thought is to purchase a Romeo Plus for the Family Room and then purchase two additional Mini’s – one for my Bedroom, and one for my Kitchen. It’s very appealing to have one “Master TiVo” that would house all of the recordings and have to manage just one To-Do List from any of the devices.

I’m looking for Pros/Cons about this proposed Setup. Specifically, how well does the Mini perform? What’s the best way to transfer all Recordings from both of my current TiVos to the new Romeo? What compelling reasons are there to absolutely pull the trigger and do it? What compelling reasons are there to NOT do it?

Thanks, in advance, for any feedback and assistance to help make this decision.

Netflix 2-1/2 times more expensive than cable?

Sun, 08/17/2014 - 12:32
Just ran across this article:

http://news.msn.com/pop-culture/what...ntertainment-1

I think the author needs to go back to school and relearn math. She's factoring in the fact that cable is on 24/7 vs. Netflix being viewed on demand and is calculating the cost based on the hours of programming vs. the monthly cost. What she neglects to mention is that nobody watches every cable channel 24/7 so her comparison is unrealistic. You gotta wonder where they find these geniuses. :rolleyes:

Summer update broke Netflix

Sun, 08/17/2014 - 09:33
Rather than hijack a thread I will start this one. If there is one where it belongs please move it. If you know of one with the answer please link to it.

I got the summer update a week ago and no matter what settings I use or how many times I reboot I can not get the netflix app to stream an SD program in 4/3 aspect ratio, everything is zoomed to full screen. I hate the distortion. I have changed the video settings, looked at the panel settings and the whole nine yards.

Did Tivo break it? Did netflix fail to update the app? I feel like I have a $500 paperweight cause I am no longer happy with my Roamio!

Tivo Mini freeze/restarts

Sun, 08/17/2014 - 06:12
Hi all,

Had my Tivo installed yesterday. I finally go around to setting up the mini's. I hooked the first one up in the bed room via Ethernet. I have not messed around with that one much yet.

The second one I hooked up via MOCA. While using it tonight, it froze and restarted. I have changed it over to Ethernet instead but did not mess around with it to see if it freezes again. I was wondering if a poor MOCA signal could cause it to freeze like that? I didn't put the MOCA POE filter on yet so I wasn't sure if some sort of combo between them could be an issue.

The first time it froze I was browsing the guide. The second time I had clicked select on a channel and it froze.

I might keep it setup via Ethernet

Can signal issues be related to the Tivo itself?

Sun, 08/17/2014 - 03:10
Hello,

I'm having some problems with my Tivo HD that I'm hoping to get help with.

A few nights ago we started getting some macroblocking, accompanied by audio drops. This happens occasionally and I didn't think much of it.

It has gotten worse, and the TV has become unwatchable. We are now getting the "Searching for signal..." message occasionally as it drops out completely.

My signal levels are holding at about 44, with SNR between 23 and 29. About every 30 seconds the signal drops to 0, and sometimes signal lock is lost altogether.

I am also seeing massive RS numbers. A channel that has been tuned for 220 seconds is showing 187,277 uncorrected, and 2,605,611 corrected. I read somewhere that you should see a handful of these in an hour, but mine are climbing by the thousands every second!

I have changed the coax from the wall to the Tivo, tried connecting the Tivo to another outlet, and removed the splitter from the stream... all resulting in the exact same signal levels. Our other Tivo in the home (a Premier) goes through the exact same splitter and is reporting 85% signal level and upper 30's SNR.

Whatever is going on seems to be related to this Tivo box, but I'm not understanding how.

A little weird thing happened this week that I'm not sure is related, but just in case - we called and cancelled service on a Series 2 that we stopped using. The next day, this Tivo HD showed "Tivo Service Interrupted". I called because I figured she accidentally cancelled service on the wrong box, but that wasn't the case. The guy told me the Tivo HD hadn't connected in 5 days, but I know that still shouldn't have caused the "Interrupted" message. He told me I needed to call tech support, and I planned on doing it the next day. The problem resolved itself before I could call, and it these macroblocking problems started shortly after. I doubt it's related, but wanted to mention it just in case.

Any suggestions? Is it possible that the Tivo is causing these signal issues? A defective tuner seems like a possibility, but it would be odd for them both to fail at exactly the same time.

Charter Communication Line-Up Change - Need Update

Sat, 08/16/2014 - 20:05
HELP!

Back on this last Monday, Charter Communications changed a huge part of its lineup, including many of the channels I am currently set for Season Pass recordings. Yet, after six days, TiVo doesn't seem to recognize this and there is no new line-up change, causing me to miss several scheduled recordings.

Please get and install the new lineup, please, or at least tell me I am now SOL to record many of the channels I usually record.

Thanks, I hope, for your help.

My first ever TiVo arrived, now to set it up!

Sat, 08/16/2014 - 16:17
Also obviously a forum newbie but I have been perusing the forum for a couple of weeks.

My cable monopoly, Charter, has rolled out encryption with a deadline to convert of August 26. As the deadline approaches, Charter is degrading our signal more and more each day. I have had two RePlayTVs (5040s upgraded to 300 GB drives, obviously standard definition) for more than a decade which have worked flawlessly and which I would happily continue to use but the move to encryption means it’s time to move into the 21st century and the ability to record HD TV channels with a Roamio Pro and Mini, actually two Minis, just in case, for our two 50” TVs.

My Roamio Pro and the Minis are still sealed in the shipping box which I will open after posting this. Earlier I picked up a cable card (Motorola M card), a set top box (Dolby?) and a tuning adapter (also Motorola). There is no charge for these Charter supplied devices for one year. I see no use for the set top box because our only two TVs will run through the Roamio and Mini using the cable card. Being new to this encryption crap, I am uncertain if I need the tuning adapter (previously I just screwed the coax cable from the cable drop splitter to my RePlayTV and then coax from each of my RePlayTVs into each of my two TVs.) We will only be using Basic and Expanded Service from Charter and we will not order on-demand shows nor anything else - ever. I will shortly call TiVo for advice on whether I really need the tuning adapter.

I plan to connect the Roamio to my network using existing Powerline Ethernet (for the electronic program guide and software updates) and connect the Roamio and Mini via MoCA. MoCA is new to me! (I have seen nooneuknow’s signature regarding the tuning adapter, no PoE bought yet!) I do not have wired Ethernet except in one room of my home (brand new Cisco DOCSIS 3 Charter thanks-for-nothing forced rental modem to MacSense 10/100 router (four port) and a Compex 10/100 switch (eight port), both over a decade old), using 200mb Powerline wherever else I need to use Ethernet as well as WiFi (yes, WEP only on an original 802.11b Apple Airport Base station which is about 15 years old.) Back to MoCA; I have always just grabbed whatever splitters were cheapest because I only needed them for TV and a short run to my cable modem. Whatever splitter I grabbed worked. As did everything else – the network untouched for over a decade except to connect a few devices (computers, printer, Ooma) and Powerline.

Now to see how the new stuff works with all the ancient stuff! Hopefully MoCA will work with my random splitters…

I guess I need to make 10 posts to view certain things on the forum so this is one down :)

(I hope this is the appropriate sub-forum for this type of post.)

Too Cute! Pint Sized needs new season pass

Sat, 08/16/2014 - 15:13
Tonight on Animal Planet the "Too Cute!" series gets renamed to "Too Cute! Pint Sized" and reduced to 30 minutes. You'll need to set a new season pass to get it.

Help!

Sat, 08/16/2014 - 14:31
Hi guys,

I am relatively new to the Tivo world. I recently started seeing a young lady who has, in the past, used a TiVo (Series 2) to assist in "instant playback" of footage of the volleyball team she coaches. This, of course, is accomplished through hooking up a video camera and using that input to "buffer" or records. According to her, and may of the other coaches that I've spoken with, the system works really well, even on smaller hard drives, because rarely do the ever have a need to record more than 20 - 30 minutes at a time. Also, from their position on the court, they can use the remote to "jump back" and demonstrate an error or a positive to the players. Anyway...

The Tivo that my "friend" had was working fine last season and (again, according to her), for the two seasons prior to that. When she plugged it in a few weeks ago, it reverted back to the initial setup process. I've scoured the web, tried MANY different methods of activating the DVR, and, to no avail, nothing worked. It ALWAYS fails. Whether hooked to a phone line or rigged to the LAN with a USB-to-ethernet adapter. I tried changing the dialing prefix, etc. Nothing. :(

She bought another Tivo on eBay (another Series 2). It got here, worked fine for the first use or two, then got stuck at the "Welcome... Powering On" screen. Though I'm new to the world of Tivo, I'm an IT director by trade, so, I took out my tool kit and did a bit of research. The Western Digital 60Gb HDD within is faulty: riddled with bad sectors and delays. Repairs were an exercise in futility.

I say all that to say this: Now, I have two Series 2 Tivo's that are each basically useless to me. She doesn't have, nor does she want or need, a subscription to the Tivo service. I am simply posting here today as a final hope of someone who might be able to offer a suggestion. I've attempted to connect serially (to the device stuck in "setup mode") and bypass the initial setup by "tweaking" a file or two, but was unsuccessful.

Is there a way to download a software image that will already be "enabled," allowing me to step around the need to connect to Tivo and download data? I am more than willing to try anything at this point. It would really make her happy if I could get it working, and, in turn, she'd do certain things that "make me happy." I digress...

Sincerely,

A frustrated young man.

PC to Tivo Transfer, Always Restarts Show at Beginning

Sat, 08/16/2014 - 13:08
I am usually very good with a search engine, but have hit a wall trying to investigate my problem.

When it began: with the Spring update (or maybe an interim update that occurred prior to the Summer update, if there was one)
Tivo Model: Tivo Premiere
Symptoms: What used to happen was, when watching a transferred show (using PyTivo), if you stopped watching before the last 5 minutes of the show, when you restart, it picks up where you left off. Now, the reverse happens...if you stop within the first 5 minutes, it picks up where you left off, but, anything more than that restarts the show at the beginning.

Watching something recorded onto the Tivo and played from there without transfer works as it should.

Any thoughts will be must appreciated...

Thank you in advance :)

DVR Expander after Weaknees Drive Replacement

Sat, 08/16/2014 - 12:31
I had my hard drive replaced by weaknees last year and prior to that I had a dvr expander. Since then I tried to reconnect the original expander drive (gave up on that bc I had never had it unpaired and it thought it belonged to the old tivo). The Tivo3 with the new drive in it now will not connect to a new DVR Expander. It justs recognizing that it is attached and won't pair no matter how many times I tried. Tivo support (until I told them I had the drive replaced) suggested that the WD drive might be bad. I haven't tested it, but I sort of doubt that. It just keeps asking whether I want to set up the device.

Green Screen after harddrive upgrade

Sat, 08/16/2014 - 11:58
My TiVo HD was stuck in a reboot loop last week on the WD 1TB drive I installed five years ago. So I purchased a new WD20EURX 2TB drive. I only have Macs and 1 SATA drive enclosure. Today I backed up the 1tb drive with WinMFS to a file and then put my new drive into the enclosure. I restored from the backup and said "yes" when asked to expand the drive's space.

I put it into my TiVo and now I'm at the green "severe issue" screen. I don't remember getting this last time, but that was 5-years ago. I'm curious if there was an issue on the 1TB drive and because this was a restore from that, something needs to be corrected by the TiVo itself. Anyhow, if anyone can assist in any way, please do.

Here's my setup for reference:

TiVo HD
WD20EURX drive that I bought last week
I did not test intellipark because everything I've read says WD doesn't ship with that on anymore. Also, I couldn't get the tests to work in my setup.
New core i7 iMac running Mavericks
VMware with a Windows 7 install
WinMFS was used to back up the 1TB drive and then restore that to the new 2TB drive
I have the original TiVo drive available if needed, along with its image
