The Blacklist 2/24/14 "Madeline Pratt"

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 02/24/2014 - 21:31
Oh, how I've missed this show in all its goofy, over-the-top glory.

More specifically, how I've missed James Spader and the chemistry he has with, apparently, the entire human race.

Disappearing Channels on Cable Card; Who's at fault?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 02/24/2014 - 21:04
I've had a HDXL w/ a M card (Comcast) for a couple of years and, up to about a week ago, had no issues.

Now however, I've had a couple of incidents where channels or whole lineups would not be available. These seem to come and go... For example, we lost Fox SD & HD on Sunday afternoon and it we noticed that it was back tonight. However, it looks like one of our local PBS stations has been out for a while.

I haven't tried replacing the CC yet, but figured that it may be the next step. Having stated that... is it possible that the CC port is bad on the TiVo and that I'll need to replace the whole unit?

Just seeing if anyone else had similar experiences...



Copy Tivo HD Hard Drive using Mac OSX 10.7 or Bootcamp (Windows 8)

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 02/24/2014 - 19:09
I am very very sorry if this has already been answered on another thread, but I've been searching and my frustrations have gotten the better of me. I just want to copy/clone my Tivo HD's hard drive (1TB). I've looked up and downloaded MFSLive and JMFS I can't figure out how to do it.

Can someone please advise me?

I'd like to copy the drives using my USB drive enclosures (aka put the new HDD and the Tivo HDD in USB drive enclosures and clone that way). I tried to follow the instructions on the MFSLive web site and burned a bootable disk, which didn't work. I also downloaded & opened WinMFS in Windows 8 via bootcamp and the drives don't show.. >sigh<

So again, can someone please give me a step by step? I have no idea what I'm missing... thanks in advance!

S3 Software 11.3b7 broke my channels

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 02/24/2014 - 15:34
On friday my Tivo S3 got a software update to 11.3b7-01-2-652 and now all my channels except for the basic channels now say "This channel is not authorized".

Anyone else having this issue?

I called Verizon FIOS because I thought it was their issue, they came out and change the cable cards, cables, ONT and everything looked good on their end.

I can even take out the cable cards from the 2-series 3's that are not working and put them in to my Series 4 and I get all the channels.

Tivo support said maybe 1-2 weeks for a fix. :(

Shameless "A Jailbird . . ." 2/23/14 ** SPOILERS **

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 02/24/2014 - 13:33
Wow, this season is turning out to be one of my favorites! A lot of interesting things happening, unfortunately all bad!

One thing I was thinking about. Earlier, Frank befriended his oldest daughter without telling her he's her Dad. He just wanted to get a piece of her liver. When it turns out that Sammi was not a match in his anger Frank blurts out that she was his daughter. At that point Sammi gets real mad at Frank and kicks him out of her trailer. A while later (I'm not sure its in the same episode or another) Sammi changes her mind and is willing to do anything to help Frank, including now getting him hard drugs or even breaking into Shelia's house. The big question is why did Sammi have such a major change of heart.

My theory is that Sammi is really after the money that Frank may get from claiming that he broke is leg on Shelia's front steps and/or any other money or possessions Frank may have if he dies.

And I still think Frank will NOT die, although I'll bet you the season finale will have Frank on death's bed and then we'll have to wait until the next season (I'm hopefully assuming its renewed for at least another season!) to see if he really dies, which I'm still saying he will not!


TiVo Premier incorrectly shows a program as recording

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 02/24/2014 - 13:27
One of my TiVo Premier devices shows a program as in the process of recording when it is not. This started over a week ago when I tried to stop the recording of an olympics hockey game while it was in the process of recording. It seemed to accept the command to stop recording but the partially recorded program still has the red circle next to it. It will let me select stop recording again and seems to acknowledge this request but it still shows that it is recording. I can't delete it as when I select the program and the press the clear button I only get the stop recording screen which doesn't do anything. This has been going on for over a week! I have tried cycling power on the unit twice but it still shows this program as recording with the red circle next to it.

Does anyone know how I can convince the TiVo that this program is not recording so I can delete it (other than deleting and clearing everything)! Thanks!


"Growing Up Fisher" Season One thread **spoilers**

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 02/24/2014 - 12:15
Growing Up Fisher was the second of two pilots NBC ran at the end of the Olympics. ("About a Boy" was the first.)

"In the new NBC comedy, Growing Up Fisher, which bowed Sunday night, J.K. Simmons (The Closer, Oz) plays a blind lawyer named Mel who must navigate his career and family after getting a divorce… all with the help of his young son and guide dog."

It appears to be based on the real life of showrunner D.J. Nash, whose dad was blind. Similar in concept to The Goldberg's in that aspect.

I liked the pilot. JK Simmons was great as the blind dad/lawyer. I wasn't thrilled with Jenna Elfman's character (she plays the mom). One, she's way too young to be his wife. Two, the whole "want to rediscover my youth" story just feels awkward. I don't want to watch episodes where she tries to wear the same clothes as her 16 yr old daughter. If they can find ways to take advantage of Elfman's natural screen persona (the wacky free spirit) and still fit her into the story, the show could do well. Otherwise, we're back to 1600 Penn, which cratered when viewers realized there was no cast chemistry.

One thing they need to resolve is why the divorce, and how that affects family dynamics. They didn't really give us any reason for a divorce, other then Elfman wants to discover the youth she never had (she married young). But why a divorce? And then they show the family getting along so well at the end, so again, why divorce?

They did a great job pulling the blind aspect of the dad into the story. I always think of blind people as helpless (I know, terrible stereotyping on my part :o), but here they had him doing everything. Like chain-sawing a tree (you gotta see it to believe it).

Looking forward to the next couple episodes to see if this can gel or not. Growing Up Fisher moves to its regular timeslot this Tuesday, Febuary 25 at 9:30/8:30c.

can I record an on-demand show? some will expire soon and I want them to see later on.

Wondering if anyone has heard about cancelled shows? Specifically Almost Human?

I hope not, but what I am reading online is that it's a maybe. However, I am just doing a general google and not sure where to go for specifics if they are out there.

'Those Who Kill' - New Drama starring Chloë Sevigny

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 02/24/2014 - 09:58

New A&E drama 'Those Who Kill' starts March 03, 2014.

Based on the Danish TV crime series inspired by bestselling author Elsebeth Egholm, "Those Who Kill" stars Chloë Sevigny as Catherine Jensen, a brilliant police detective who tracks down serial killers. Jensen is also investigating her stepfather, who may be a serial killer, while searching for her missing brother. She enlists the help of Thomas Schaffer (James D’Arcy), a forensic psychiatrist, to help her understand the minds of serial killers, all the while luring Schaffer into her own personal investigation. Both characters possess a deep psychological understanding that connects them to the killers' victims and to the killers themselves.

First episode is out on usenet.

TiVo Winter Olympic Coverage — Top Moments — February 23, 2014

As the 22nd Winter Olympics came to a close in Sochi, Russia – one thing was for sure – these Olympic Games will never be forgotten.  From the opening ceremony with technical issues to controversy over housing and facilities being subpar to the blood, sweat and tears from the athletes as new world records were created and childhood dreams came true; it all came to a close last night at the Closing Ceremony. By no surprise TiVo’s Top Moment of the Closing Ceremony came about 42 minutes into the ceremony Continue Reading

Spontaneous Reboot on Roamio Pro

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 02/24/2014 - 09:48
So, last night, my 3 month old pro had its first hiccup.

A spontaneous reboot while watching a show (Amazing Race) while it was still recording that (I was about half an hour behind real time) and at least one other show.

The show paused, and then started again after about 2 seconds, and then the whole thing rebooted.

Interestingly enough, unlike all of my previous TiVos, when it was finished rebooting, it *didn't* continue to record the shows. Is that new behavior known? (Or, am I wrong, and none of them do that?)

Anyway, I'll have to keep my eye out to see if this is the beginning of a hard drive failure, or something else...

Why is Streaming for Android Taking So Long?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 02/24/2014 - 09:25
This isn't meant to be another rant.

I was just curious why it is taking so long for TiVo to develop steaming for Android?

I'm sure that that it's more difficult to develop this than I am giving them credit for. Is it just that this isn't the limited platform that iOS is? What are some of the other difficulties?

To me it just seems like they are not willing to invest the necessary resources. If they really wanted this done it would be done. (Okay, that was a small rant.)

But seriously, what are the difficulties that I am not aware of? How hard can this be?

Amazing Race - All Stars - Whole Season Thread (Spoilers for aired shows only)

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 02/24/2014 - 08:12
Well, off to a flying start - l'm glad we've had our share of "C'mon Twinnie" for this season! Those two were just too stupid to be in the Race. They seemed more interested in blaming each other than racing!

So pleased to see the Cowboys win. At least we know there'll be no shenanigans with the Express Passes.

Also hoping KY does well after the news of one of them having to drop out. Malory is not particularly a favorite, but I'd love to see them do well.

Here's hoping the Afghanimals go soon.

Roamio Downloading the wrong show to the iPad

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 02/24/2014 - 08:03
I have a Roamio and downloaded a couple shows for my kid when we were on vacation. It downloaded the same show several times. The were titled as the show I downloaded but when played were all the same episode. I deleted the wrong show and downloaded again. And again it was wrong. I did notice the downloaded sizes did not match. I then tried to stream the show and it worked without a problem.

Any ideas how to get it to download the right shows in the future?
