Mount Drive with Mac and Backup?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 04/15/2014 - 12:10
I have a TiVo Premiere that just got it's Ethernet fried. Everything else still works. I have bought a Premiere XL on Craigslist to replace it. There is not a LOT of content on the old one that I'm too worried about, but if it's not too much trouble to copy them off I'd like to. What I'm more interested in is: is there anyway to backup my schedules and install them on the new XL? I know there are ways to do this with an Internet connected Tivo, but is there a way without? What about putting the old TiVo HD in an external enclosure and hooking it to the XL??? I have no idea, grasping at straws. Any help appreciated.

backing up a Premiere drive?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 04/15/2014 - 11:30
I have had numerous TiVos over the years. Series 2, Series 3 and currently some Premieres (2 & 4-tuners). Thanks to this forum, I was able to easily fix a Series 3 reboot problem last year. It turned out to be the hard drive.

With a Series 3 image I got from here along with WinMFS and an XP based PC I have, I was able to restore the image on to a 500GB hard drive. I put it in the Series 3 and it booted up fine. Its still working great.

My premieres are all still working great, but since some of them are lifetime units, I was thinking I might want to make backup images of their hard drives now and before something goes wrong. This way, I can then maybe restore (or even upgrade) their hard drives if needed in the future.

Can the premiere hard drives be easily backed up the way Series 3 drives can with WinMFS? If so, what is the software and the info for the method used? also, Is there maybe a place where i can just download a drive image instead that can be used with a premiere?

Finally can a 2-tuner Premiere image also be used for a 4-tuner premiere? Or is it like the Series 3 and has to more or less be tied to the model specifically?

LogMeIn Heartbleed Extends To Personal Computer Passwords

As you’ve probably read during your recent Internet travels, an OpenSSL vulnerability was uncovered that puts server data at risk. Many prominent sites have since corrected the issue, dubbed Heartbleed, and its been advised that web passwords be changed. Yet, LogMeIn just reached out with an interesting twist — they believe their server infrastructure to […]

Does TV Mini need to be in the same room as the TV or will the remote work from 50'

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 04/15/2014 - 09:55
Hello all -

I bought two Tivo Mini's to run off of my Tivo Roamio for my Bedroom and Bathroom TV. I was planning to put them all into my AV rack in my media room but it just occurred to me that the remote probably wont work then. So I am guessing I would need to run cat6 to both the bedroom and bathroom and hide the Mini behind the TV?

Thoughts?

Thanks,
Ray

SureWest (Consolidated Communications KC) 4 tuner M-Card / Tuning adapter problem

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 04/15/2014 - 08:54
Anyone else on this system?

Getting Tivo message "The tivo box has four tuners but the connected Tuning adapter supports less than four. As a result you won't be able to use all the tuners on your tivo box"


Tech support after escalating to "they engineer who knows" says M-Cards (theirs at least) are only 2 stream as are the TA's.

I think they're wrong on the M-Cards but is there a diagnostics screen that will state "4 streams" to disprove that part?

Which just leaves the TA; but I'm not sure what more I can do if they just say "we support 2 streams no we don't have any updates..."

I thought I heard they had to provide more streams in TA under some rule... I need something to show them if so.

The MTV Movie Awards – Top Moments

TiVo Blog - Mon, 04/14/2014 - 17:25
On Sunday night, film awards were presented to recipients at the MTV Movie Awards. Conan O’Brien hosted the star studded show and succeeded in breaking the record for the most celebrity cameos. The award show opened with Conan managing to crash Jessica Alba’s photo shoot, cuddle with Elijah Wood, and sip drinks with “12 Years a Slave” star, Lupita Nyong’o. The night also consisted of Zac Efron shirtless, a massive performance from Eminem and Rihanna, and a tribute to the late “Fast & Furious” star Paul Walker.

YouTube Live Streams on Roamio

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 04/14/2014 - 17:11
Hey TiVo,

I can easily watch any normal YouTube video on my new Roamio, but for some reason live YouTube streams are not available. I can cast regular YouTube videos to my Roamio from my iPhone or my laptop, but when I try to cast a live YouTube stream, my Roamio reports that the video is not accessible. I tried tagging the YouTube live streams as "Watch Later," but they also do not show up in my YouTube account on my Roamio.

It was the damper on my weekend, after popping $200 for the Roamio when my HTPC died, and I couldn't watch the live Coachella stream. My friends with AppleTVs, Rokus, and ChromeCasts all reported the feed was gorgeous.

In addition to my OTA recordings, I need my Roamio to deliver all possible and probable online content, especially for $14.99 a month.

Can this capability be included in near future updates? Not to be pushy, but the sooner the better. Okay, just a little pushy.

Thanks,
McB

Copying .TIVO files from hard drive to thumb drive

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 04/14/2014 - 15:56
Greetings,
I have copied 13 "Original Cosmos" files from my Tivo to my Windows based desktop. I can play them in Tivo Desk Top program. They average about 5-6 gigabytes long. I want to transfer them from my desktop to a thumb drive. I've got a 32 GB and a 16 GB thumb drive with ove 10GB free space. I've formatted one of them and have transferred several GB of MP3 files to it with no problem. My problem is when I try to transfer one .TIVO file to it, it copies about 4 GB and then errors out with a message that says there is not enough space on the thumb drive. I've tried it several times on both thumb drives with the same result. Using Widows File Explorer it says the .tivo file is too large for the destination file system. I think that I formatted it in FAT32 format but I'm not sure.

Anyone else had this problem?
Thanks,

Duplicate recording

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 04/14/2014 - 15:50
Cannot figure this out:

I have a season pass for Global Voices, record new and repeat. It's shown on a single PBS station in my area - one season pass for one channel.

I went to watch an earlier program now and saw two recordings for 'Cuba: An African Odyssey' in the folder. One was recorded 4/6 and the other 4/13. Scanned through and they are identical. Checked history and the one that was recorded last night didn't show up there! It also wasn't a suggestion.

cmcast is foldind FEARnet tv into the chiller and syfy channels,no date is set yet but FREARnet will no longer be a standalone channel! I just read this over at deadline.com! so sad to see this happen as we never even got the HD version(if there was one) on verizon fios. Now if we could only get them to put chiller in HD like the syfy channel, at least maybe that way we could see some hd gorynest!

Custom User Created Folders

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 04/14/2014 - 13:17
I would love for us to be able to CREATE our own folders to store our recordings, and in the SP or recording setup, we could preset which folder the show would be placed after recording.

I request this, because I have one TiVo that records nothing but movies on all of the various movie cable channels. (HBO, Starz, Encore, etc..)

Because movies are NOT series... They aren't put into folders.

Thus my NPL is now 200 files long. and takes forever to thumb through!

If I were able to create my own folders, I would create a folder for HBO, one for Starz, another one for each of the Encore stations, etc... and then the movies for each of those networks would be in their folders. Making the NPL much easier to view

Same way folders make it easier to view our SP's for series TV shows we watch.

In the minimum, we should maybe have at least a "MOVIE" folder where the TiVo will put all the movies we record. Since the TiVo is smart enough to know if what we are recording is a Movie or a Series.

Subtitles/Closed Captioning

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 04/14/2014 - 12:41
I am not very good with search engines. Sorry...

I remember a while back.... a year or more. A discussion about subtitles and closed captioning. I have just been unable to find those threads.

I have 2 things I am trying to achieve.

1. I have MPG/MKV/MP4 files, where I have SRT subtitle .txt files. When I transfer them to the TiVo, either via my NAS server, or pyTiVo, or even with TD+ they don't transfer and I can't get my subtitles/CC on the TiVo

2. If I transfer a TiVo recorded show to my computer. I am unable to demux the Closed captioning from the TiVo file, Even if I use TiVo decoder and convert to MPG. (I Do this, because I have another TiVo at my cabin, And it has a different MAK id, so saving a TiVo file to my laptop, still won't allow me to watch it on my Cabin's TiVo, that's why the conversion to MPG)

I do know and do have a couple of programs that will "Hard Code" the subtitles/CC onto the video track. Problem is that can't be turned on & off. And while I like it. My wife and kids do not! LOL

I do understand that there is a tech difference between subtitles used on DVD's/Blu-rays, and closed captioning used in broadcast shows.

Any ideas on how to achieve my goals of getting subtitles/CC on video that I transfer to my TiVo? Using either my NAS TiVo server, pyTiVo, or TD+?

Video Stutters on Pro with 20.4.1

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 04/14/2014 - 11:56
I realize that this isn't nearly as acute as the reboot or HDMI issues that some have been seeing, but I wanted to know if anyone else is seeing an issue where the video will stutter (almost as if frames are missing). It happens for 1-3 seconds and the audio never drops or gets weird. Eventually the video catches up to the audio and goes on like nothing happened. There is no pixellation to macro blocking, just a "stop motion" look to it.

This started to happen after my box got the update (I didn't ask to be on the priority list, but I got it anyway). Any ideas about this?

Transfer from Series 2 to Premiere Changes Show Title

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 04/14/2014 - 11:03
I've searched around for answers to this but I'm not finding one, so I'm starting a new thread.

I just got a Premiere, and already have a couple of Series 2 TiVos in the house. I'm transferring a bunch of shows from the old Series 2 to the Premiere, and by and large it's working fine (although slow).

However, on certain shows, the Premiere changes the title of the show when it begins transferring. I was moving two The Crazy Ones episodes, but after it began transferring, it listed the show on the Premiere's My Shows listing as Elementary. On the To Do list, the second episode was still listed as The Crazy Ones, but once the transfer began, it switched to Elementary. Dr. Phil episodes changes to Judge Judy. It's not just the title either - episode information changes too, apparently to info that goes with Elementary and Judge Judy.

I've never seen anything like this happen before, and I'm wondering if there's any fix, or if it's a known issue that others experience too.
