Person of Interest 3/24/2015 "Skip"

Loved Kathryn Winnick the "Shield Maiden" character. FAR more chemistry between Frankie & Johnny than with the bleh shrink babe. What are the writers thinking?
Did not like the plot turn pissing away Harold's well set up in Hong Kong trojan insertion into Samaritan. I had been looking for the writers to advance a piece along the board in the AI wars, but no go.
Recurring character Harper is not a fav.

New Tivo Android App Today

V 3.0.0-799266

All new redesigned interface. I haven't done any testing on it yet though.. But I *was* able to setup streaming while away from home. I don't believe that was possible before.

We've completely redesigned the App from the ground up.

New Features include OnePass and What to Watch for Android.

Comcast TBSHD channel not authorized. Pairing issue.

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 03/25/2015 - 12:12
I just had this problem appear suddenly. TBSHD had been working fine on my Roamio Plus for a year, then suddenly (right before a NCAA basketball game no less), I got the not authorized error.

Comcast tech came out and replaced the cablecard, re-paired numerous times, etc still getting the same error. Called TiVo who had us go through a number of things regarding cablecard pairing, status, signal strength, SNR levels, etc. Still no TBSHD, all other channels fine. Comcast tech went through and measured all signals, etc and all was good.

After about 3 hours of debugging, the Comcast Tech got a call from his supervisor stating that just a few days earlier (about the same time I lost TBSHD), the Comcast engineers had made a "tweak" to TBSHD on the Comcast head end. They pushed updates to all of their Comcast set top boxes, so things were fine there, but they now realize there is an incompatibility with TiVos. Tech said that the supervisor would be working with TiVo to resolve the issue. We'll see, but at least we know what the problem is/was.

Update today 3/25/2015: TBSHD is now working again, so Comcast made some update on their head end I would guess.

BTW, it was extremely frustrating to hear the Comcast tech constantly berate TiVo...haven't seen anyone use a TiVo in years....blah blah blah. So glad the problem ended up being on Comcast's side of things after hours of hearing that it had to be TiVo since Comcast was fine.

What can cause a tivo stream to reboot?

My tivo stream reboots sometimes when I'm watching a TV show on my phone. What can I do to stop this?

Apple iTunes access

I purchased a Tivo Roamio and Tivo mini yesterday, and I am wondering if it is possible to access my iTunes library of movies. I am currently using apple tv 3rd generation in several rooms to access my movies.

Jeremy Clarkson fired from Top Gear

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 03/25/2015 - 09:48

It sounds as though they'll try to find a replacement. I can't think of anyone that would easily fit the role that he played on the show.

The last two episodes, with just a road trip in Italy, were incredibly boring.

R.I.P. Top Gear

...as we know it, at least.

Jeremy Clarkson will not have his contract renewed. It expires at the end of the month. :(

There is speculation that a replacement will be considered, but as Richard Hammond and James May have said they won't do the show without Jeremy, the whole future is in the balance and personally, I doubt it would succeed without him anyway.

The above link is to a live update feed from The Guardian newspaper in the UK. Other articles are listing names for a successor with Chris Evans emerging as favorite even though he denies being approached.

I have also seen a rumor that Netflix may be interested as well as other UK stations. Time will tell which is true.

I hope they'll make the material from the last three episodes of the show that are in the can available to watch in some form.

TV Show Display

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 03/25/2015 - 08:34
I have been using pytivo for years but never really stored tv shows until now. What I find a little troubling is the display on tivo. When I go into the season folder, I see the episode name but not the episode number. I am using Lucansz fork and I need to know which of the container files to modify what is displayed on my tv. I have 3 of them: container_mob, container_xml and container_html. I already modified the container_html to change the way it is displayed on my phone.

example of what I want to see
episode number - episode title

Thanks for the help

The Flash S01E16 "Rogue Time" - OAD 24-Mar-2015

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 03/25/2015 - 08:30
I am disappoint.....

First of all, ONE FLASH?!?!? I was expected to be double my pleasure, double my fun.

Secondly, the whole deal with Cold really sucks. Yes, I know it's supposed to setup the Gallery, but they couldn't come up with a better script?

The only good surprise is that the whole day is almost completely different from the previous episodes.

Lastly, I guess Dr. Wells is waiting for Flash to go faster, traveling in time for more than a day.

Justified 610 - "Trust" (03/24/15)

Wow! I did not expect Ava to do that! Good for her. Her situation was otherwise hopeless and she was desperate, so she played all her cards.

For some reason I expect Boyd to survive that chest/shoulder shot.

Catherine is in deep doo-doo with Markham, but I also expect that he did not give up the entire $10m. I think Wynn will also survive to see another day.

This season is really trucking along! :up:

Moca through Ethernet switch question

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 03/24/2015 - 20:42
I had a question for everyone. I'm about to become a first time home buyer. In my current apartment everything is on one floor and close so I just ran some long Ethernet cables to connect my Roamio basic and two TiVo mini's. Once we close on our house I don't have a desire to cut up my walls and or run Ethernet everywhere so I had a question about hooking up my Roamio and my two mini's. I know I need to put the one moca bridge before the modem, then plug it into my router, but in my entertainment unit where I'll put the other moca adapter can I plug that into a switch so the other devices, blu-ray, AppleTV etc., share that same part of the network? Can I also get additional moca adapters and keep the TiVo and mini's set to Ethernet instead of switching them to moca?

Duplicate My Shows folders... reboot corrects it?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 03/24/2015 - 19:30
This has happened several times now. It started happening before the update with the Rachel Maddow Show as a Season Pass. I thought the update fixed it, but I was wrong:

My Shows:

1) Folder: Long Island Medium [2] unwatched
2) Recording: The Good Wife (last week) unwatched

Then, record Madam Secretary and Good Wife from OnePass and I get:

1) Folder: Long Island Medium [2]
2) Folder: The Good Wife [2]
3) Folder: The Good Wife [2] (again!)

Two "Good Wife" folders created, both containing the same two recordings! Selecting anything in the second folder and then backing out leaves you in the first folder.

Reboot TiVo and I get:

1) Folder: Long Island Medium [2]
2) Folder: The Good Wife [2]
3) Recording: Madam Secretary

As it should have been to start with.

Can anyone shed some light on this? It appears that I can replicate it and it seems to have something to do with one show following another on the same channel.

Part of Last 30 minutes lost

TiVo is supposed to record the last 30 minutes on the tuner. However when a new program starts, the data from the previous show is lost. Does anyone else have this problem or know a solution?

FS: (2) SiliconDust CacheCard w/512MB SDRAM

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 03/24/2015 - 17:51
I'm cleaning out my closets and found two Cachecards I no longer need. For use with Series 1 Tivos or Series 1 DirecTivos. Each comes with a 512MB PC133 SDRAM DIMM. One of the cards has a broken DIMM retainer clip, but the DIMM sits securely in the slot okay.

Asking $45 each shipped.

I want to relocate my tivo

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 03/24/2015 - 10:24
I want to relocate my tivo to different room. My question is, is tivo like a tv or computer? what I mean is that, if you unplug ur tv all the settings get reset. if you unplug computer all ur settings stay the same. I want to relocate my tivo but I'm afraid if I unplug it I'll lose all my settings/channels list/one pass?
