Project Runway All Stars Season 3 all-season thread (spoilers to date)

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 10/25/2013 - 11:25
And so it begins. Let's put the OAD and episode title in the post title (or in the beginning of your post, if you can't load the post title) for the first post about the new episode each week. It makes it easier when people are not caught up to the current episode.

All-Stars really bugs me -- it's just not as satisfying as the original show -- but it's like a train-wreck, I can't help watching.

And of course the producers have gone out of their way to load the show with designers I really wanted to see again -- and designers I never wanted to see again.

Three former winners? Seriously, PR?

Is anyone else game for this?

IN Home Streaming Experience - router settings

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 10/25/2013 - 10:53
I'm sure everyone is exited to try the OOH streaming, but I'm still having issues in home.

Streaming is generally very high quality (HD), but freezes often. Usually every 5 to 10 seconds. My wifi speed is generally excellent. I have one of the newer Asus AC routers (RT-AC66U).

The router config is pretty much stock (no QoS enabled or anything). This issue seems to happen regardless of other network traffic.

Anyone else having this problem or have suggestions on settings? Am I right in suspecting the router is a problem? As it exists not, the streaming is pretty much useless for me.

Adding Tivo Stream to Roamio Break iPad high speed scrubbing for TV content

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 10/25/2013 - 10:30
I have the entry level Roamio w/a Tivo Stream add-on box. After I installed Tivo Stream the regular high speed scrubbing no longer works in the Tivo ipad App. The new scrub bar for "Watch on iPad" works fine. But the scrub bar for watching TV using the Tive IOS Remote app doesn't work. Moving the bar does nothing.

What internet dealer can I get a Roamio for less than $150 shipped free to California (from outside the state) to avoid the sales tax?

Arrow "Broken Dolls" 10/23/2013

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 10/25/2013 - 08:48
Looks like he's going to be called The Arrow from now on. I'd still prefer Green Arrow but anything's better than The Hood or The Vigilante.

Laurel's father was standing five feet from The Arrow for about half the show and he still couldn't figure out it's Oliver.

Would I know who the blonde woman hero is if I read the comics?

New TiVo Remote On The Way

Zatz Not Funny! - Fri, 10/25/2013 - 06:30

By way of the FCC (1, 2), we’ve learned a new TiVo remote and RF USB dongle are on the way. While the rear looks quite similar to the new TiVo Roamio remote, due to a short term confidentiality request, we’re unable to confirm if this is the incoming Roamio Slide with QWERTY keyboard or [...]

Recordings will not resume after Restart/Reboot

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 10/25/2013 - 03:11
I am seeing a strange behavior on my Roamio Pro and wonder if anyone else can reproduce it. I am wondering if it might be related to the Cisco TA issues, discussed in this thread: http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb...d.php?t=509579

If I have recordings in progress and I reboot or restart, the recordings do not resume after the Roamio completes it's restart.

I also get an odd message in History that I do not recall seeing before in the Premiere.
The message is Not Recorded - "Problem Getting Tuner"

Can anyone reproduce this, especially anyone with a Cisco TA?

Download to iPad broken?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 10/24/2013 - 23:03
Did the download feature of the TiVo app get broken with the latest TiVo streaming update?

I was previously able to download hour-long, HD TV shows in near real-time without difficulty. Now, it's downloading very low quality, and times-out numerous times while struggling to download a show.

Is anyone else having this problem?

Is there a aaa TIVO Roamio User Guide? PDf?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 10/24/2013 - 21:35
The Roamio did not come with operating instructions. Is there a user guide I can download?

I used to have the series 3 but there are some interface differences.

For example

.. Some of the title on season pass manager list are in a white font and a few are a dimmer gray. What does that mean?

.under "my shows", what does the red circle to the left of a title mean? What about a green dot? A blue dot?

Where can I find this info!

Thanks

Can't connect to Netflix... anyone else?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 10/24/2013 - 20:47
Anyone else having problems streaming Netflix tonight? I'm not able to connect via TiVo, although connecting from my computer works fine. I've tried rebooting the TiVo and disconnecting the Netflix account; now when I try to re-connect Netflix I get the same error about not being able to connect.

Anyone else?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 10/24/2013 - 20:24
I have been using tivoplaylist successfully for years. 2 days ago it appeared to crash and it dissappeared and my virus software said it had a virus. i reinstalled it after turning my virus software off. Successfully transferred a show and then turned off my computer. I turned it back on the next day opened tivoplaylist and it crashed with the same virus message. I am using avast as my antivirus program. Has anyone had the same problem???? could it all of a sudden have a virus???? I am currently using tivo desktop but it is so slow.

Cellular stream work around

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 10/24/2013 - 17:45
I wanted to report on the capabilities of the OOH stream on just a cellular connection.

While you cannot initiate a direct stream over a cellular connection, you can start a download and begin watching after just a few moments.

Pretty cool:

Start a recording -> initiate a download to your IOS device -> start watching

So while we are waiting for Apple to approve streaming for LTE connected devices, TiVo has given us a very robust work around that gives full functionality when on the road!

Record from current time

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 10/24/2013 - 17:36
Sometimes I am watching a currently airing show and something comes up and I need to leave.
If I press record this episode, it includes the previous 30 minutes and makes it more difficult to find the point I left off.
I have gotten into the habit of changing the channel and then coming back to clear out the buffer so the 30 minutes is no longer included, but I was curious if Tivo already had a way to record without the 30 minutes.

Trim and rename Recordings

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 10/24/2013 - 17:29
I would like to be able to trim a video on the Tivo without having to use a computer.
Periodically I see something that I want to save for later and press record.
However, it saves the prior 30 minutes also. I need just a few of the minutes that I just watched.
If I could later trim the beginning off so that the snippet begins at the point I want to watch.
It's not so much the space but not having to FF through the program to find the spot I want to watch.

Renaming these snippets would also be nice so I know what they are later.

Best Android app to control a TiVo?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 10/24/2013 - 14:13
In the Google Play store I see the TiVo app, DVR Commander by Anthony Lieuallen, and Network Remote for Tivo by Matthew Kennedy. I have a Roamio Basic if it matters.
