TiVo’s Top 40 Simpsons Ever!

TiVo Blog - Tue, 08/19/2014 - 11:48
With the upcoming FXX marathon, starting on August 21st, of every episode of “The Simpsons” in order, we asked ourselves what seems like a fairly simple question: What’s the best episode of “The Simpsons” ever? But when you sit down to try to sift through the last 25 years of couch gags, guest stars, donuts and d’ohs, it’s actually pretty difficult to choose just one. So we didn’t. Instead, we put together a list of our 40 favorite episodes of the iconic show, including these all-time classics: “Colonel Homer” (Season 3, Episode Continue Reading

Codec Error in Media Player

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 08/19/2014 - 11:17
Occasionally get an error from Windows Media Player when attempting to view saved recordings offloaded from Tivos to PC. Displays the following error.

"Windows Media Player cannot play this file. The player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compres the file."

If I attempt to play the file in Video Redo it locks the program up as well.

The file type should be the same as the others I have saved so that doesn't appear to me as the problem, I'm assuming (perhaps incorrectly ) that the codec would also be identical to other recordings.

Any guidance appreciated..

Doctor Who Marathon on BBCA

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 08/19/2014 - 08:15
In preparing for the new season BBCA is running every episode of (post-reboot) Doctor Who, plus all of the "Doctors Revisited" shows, and a couple of new "specials" pretty much 24 hrs/day until the Saturday premiere.

So if you want to rewatch an episode, or snag one to keep for your "permanent collection" its probably worth looking through the guide.

The Ginger scene was worth the wait.

Jason telling Bridget they were not going to have sex was not for Bridget, but for the audience. :D

Faster fast forward

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 08/18/2014 - 13:43
The Tivo needs a faster fast forward.

It's not that fast when increments are 15 minutes.

And then 30 minute hash marks? It is a painful in a 1st world kind of unnecessary way.

Maybe just me venting the past few days after watching select parts of long sporting events.

NFL Redzone

I'm confused about NFL Redzone. Right now there is a free preview, but the free preview does not start until 7pm.

I thought Redzone was some kind of multiscreen live telecast, but if the free preview isn't until 7pm......

So what exactly is NFL Redzone? Thanks

I got my first HD box to start my transition from Series 2 boxes to something newer. I got a Premiere (yes I know it's not a Romio) and a M cable card and tuning adapter and even after two different people on the phone I have basic channels only like PBS and CBS etc even in beautiful HD but anything in the extended package channels even in SD equal not authorized.

They are sending out a tech tomorrow to waste my time looking at signals. I used to do Satellite work, my cable testers are far better than most cable techs carry and the last one I had out a few years ago to run a new drop after a storm even commented that the cable ends and the coax cables I ran were higher quality then they have.

Just got back from vacation and had a chance to watch last Sunday's episode. Interesting plot developments. I'm wondering how long it will be until Libby is knocking boots with Coral's boyfriend(?).

The show guide on my Tivo said it was her brother (and Showtime's website says brother as well) but the way she was talking about him was as a boyfriend. What did I miss? :)

Need extra ethernet ports where Tivo mini is

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 08/18/2014 - 09:08
I have a Tivo mini setup in a room with no wired etherent and am using MOCA with my Roamio Pro to create a MOCA network. In that same room I would like to connect a couple of other devices (Blu-ray, roku, etc.) using wired ethernet. Can I use this MOCA/Ethernet switch to provide ethernet connections for my other devices? If so is there a better and/or less expensive solution? Thanks.

TiVo To Drop Mini Service Fees?

Zatz Not Funny! - Mon, 08/18/2014 - 06:30
Amidst Roku and Fire TV TiVo app chatter, comes word that changes are headed to TiVo’s original (and only) DVR extender – the TiVo Mini. I’d been hoping for a hardware refresh of perhaps an even smaller form factor, with a more secure power jack, and WiFi to hit RCN’s wishlist (and my kitchen TV). Alas, the only imminent adjustment […]

The Leftovers "Cairo" 8/17/2014

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 08/18/2014 - 00:39
Half way through the episode I said "I love this episode!!!" again. After the end of it, it feels weird saying I *loved* it, but I did think that mid-way through. Great episode.

Loved watching the priest get to Liv Tyler's character.

So Jill finally asked Aimee if she was ****ing her Dad.. And we see mention of Jill having lost someone (apparently whomever she had been staying with - parent? grandparent?), first in the question about loss, and second in her having to find a place to stay.

Absolutely loved the confusion in Kevin's face as he woke up outside the cabin in the woods. I wonder how much time he has lost. Really liking Dean (dog-shooting guy).. and thought it was great that she pointed out that he has no history.. I said the word angel out loud before he got around to saying he liked to think of himself as a guardian angel.

I wonder if the fact that Nora kept the gun is supposed to be considered as hard evidence that Wayne is a fraud.. (they certainly telegraphed it through the twins explaining for the audience that if they find the gun, people CAN'T just be happy).

That's pretty ****ed up that they seem to have bought a whole bunch of those dolls of the loved ones, and that they're going to dress them up..

Did everyone else catch that Dean, when walking out of the cabin, was talking to someone we can't see, like Kevin's Dad does? They made it look like maybe he was talking to the woman, but he wasn't - the second part he says after the cut makes that clear.
