Premiere XL4 not in my shows list using TiVo to Go Desktop plus to transfer .ti

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 03/23/2013 - 11:47
I have searched all over the place for this solution and I know I can do pytivo and other options to transfer from PC to TiVo, but I have this program already and have no issues downloading video from my tivo to PC and converting it.

The issue I am having is moving these files back. I put videos in folder to publish them back to the TiVo but it says since it came from a TiVo you can't transfer them back that way.

I don't see my PC on my shows list on my TiVo. I have opened my windows firewall to all the tivo services. I use avast antivirus with no firewall on windows 8, with a dlink router. I know I can push them back but just can't figure out what is missing.

Folder playlist ?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 03/23/2013 - 11:17
Ok, so you know when you have a a show that's got say 3 recordings in a folder because you slacked on watching them. Well, when you finally watch em you can just hit play on it from the now playing list and it rolls 1 of 3. Well, is there anyway to make a similar "playlist" of sorts for different shows so if you wana run a small marathon of sorts you don't need to go and play each one individually.

Thx.

Lost Xfinity VOD After Disk Upgrade

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 03/23/2013 - 10:23
I just successfully (almost) upgraded my Premiere 4 HD to a 2TB but right now I am back to GSM-11. I just did a connect and am hoping that VOD comes back. Has anyone else had this experience?

Loading now but taking a long time. Is it possible that a service upgrade that was on my original HD didn't transfer to the new disk?

UPDATE: After completing the connect everything is working!

Synology DS112

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 03/23/2013 - 08:32
Greetings...

I am new to Tivo and NAS in general... Purchased both a few weeks ago...

Purchased both but not originally to work with one another... Tivo to explore the service and the Synology DS112 as a stand alone file backup for all of my family's files and photos.

I am now at the point of wondering if I can connect my DS112 with my Tivo.

Since my DS112 stays powered on 24/7 and my computer only when I using it... I would like have the Tivo content moved to the DS112 instead of my computer. Likewise... I would like to move content from my computer to the DS112 and then to the Tivo...

Any suggestions for the newbee?

Many thanks in advance!

Regards,
Mike

"Keep at Most" PLEASE!

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 03/23/2013 - 04:22
My search of the tivo support webpages found the following statement:

"If Keep Until is set to Keep Until I Delete, all episodes recorded will be kept until the Keep at Most limit is reached. For example, if Keep at Most is set to three episodes and Keep Until is set to Keep Until I Delete, recording will stop after three episodes until you delete one or more of the episodes."

This is exactly what I want my Tivo Premiere XL to do for many programs. However, when I set the Season Pass options for a program to these settings, my Tivo continues to record and keep episodes after reaching the "Keep at Most" limit (without deleting older recordings). I am trying to utilize the limited HD space to record fewer episodes of more shows. Please help!

DLNA on Tivo

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 03/23/2013 - 01:46
Is Tivo supporting DLNA?

I noticed that at the bootom of 'my shows', I can see my windows PC that's sharing a video folder. I can see *.flv files and transfer them for viewing almost instantly.
Is this something Tivo support natively? I didn't think Tivo can play *.flv files.

Is anyone else getting this?

Mini & Time Warner...anyone tried yet?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 03/23/2013 - 01:15
Looking for TWC customers who have used Tivo Mini.

I recently moved from a FIOS market to a Time Warner market. TWC infrastructure does not handle Tivos well..by design. Switched Digital Video channels constantly disappear. All techs worked on situation agree its their issue and are powerless to fix. I hesitate to get a Mini because MOCA is a no-no on TWC networks. All the techs were told point blank they would be fired on the spot if they turned on MOCA. And I can not run cat5 in my current situation.

Deleting when going through group

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 03/22/2013 - 23:54
Okay, maybe I'm late to the discovery of this but I just accidentally found out that I can hit Play instead of Select when a group is highlighted in the Now Playing list and it will play one show after another from oldest on up. This is a great feature and I figured out how to skip up and down a show via the up/down channel BUT how do I delete a show while staying in the playing of the group??? I have over a hundred CNet videos from Video on Demand and I'd like to delete some as I go through without going back to the Now Playing list each time as I have been doing for the past few years.
Thanks so much for the help!

Youtube and my subscriptions

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 03/22/2013 - 23:42
Someone (I assume the Youtube App) has made it even more difficult to view my subscriptions. I was hoping it was some kind of glitch, so I rebooted my box a few times. Stays the same

Last week I was able to scan through my subscription, be it in a one group, but now I have to start the first video. Press down 2 times and scan through the videos much slower

Please tell me there is something wrong with my Tivo. Has anyone else noticed this?

Red circle of death on the Mini

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 03/22/2013 - 23:13
Purchased a retail Mini a few days ago and a few months ago purchased my 3rd TP-4 (retail when the price was $199). I activated both with Lifetime a few days ago. The Mini and the new TP-4 set up great, could see all my Series 4 TiVos and use MRS on all of them. Set up the new TP-4 for the Mini to use one tuner. Set up my Mini and the new TP-4 had the red circle death, I could not select that unit, the other two TP-4s could be selected without problems. I have tried everything, re-booting the new TP-4, re-booting the Mini, even did a C&D all on the Mini, I can't select the new TP-4, I even tried disconnecting one of my older TP-4s, still had the circle of death on the new TP-4.
I give up, I did call TiVo and they could not see any reason for this problem on their side, will be escalated to engineering.
My plan was to sell my other two Series 4s with 2 tuners, so I would be left with 3 TP-4 giving me 11 tuners (and one for the mini) and one Mini, more than enough for my home.
Any help would be appreciated.

Old Real Worlds rerunning

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 03/22/2013 - 21:52
Probably too late, since it starts in a few mins, and those on the east coast have already missed it, but MTV is rerunning a bunch of old RW seasons.. including the first season..

over the next few days.

(Was it originally a half hour show? They're showing up in ~35 minute time slots.. and I always pad MTV shows 2 minutes before & 2 minutes after, due to their weird scheduling.)

I rarely watch reruns, but am vaguely interested in watching this and some of the other season(s) they're rerunning. IIRC, I never saw all of Las Vegas.

I know some/all of it is on their web site, but I don't want to watch it on a web site.

Star Trek eps (of all five shows) for free viewing on Hulu until end of 3/2013

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 03/22/2013 - 18:47
I guess this sorta belongs in Now Playing...

Thanks to a FB post by George Takei.
Quote: Friends, I don't ask for "likes" very often, but this is an exception. I've been informed that in honor of Bill Shatner's birthday, "Hulu" will be offering free on-line viewing of episodes from ALL FIVE of the Star Trek shows through the end of March. This is a great opportunity for parents who grew up with Star Trek to introduce their kids--truly the "next generation"--to this groundbreaking franchise. Access this link from your computer, not a mobile device, I'm told. Happy viewing, and please pass along the word. http://www.hulu.com/browse/picks/sta...013Q1_StarTrek

It looks like it works! I just picked an Enterprise ep at random. Great for rewatching some of your favorite eps or good ones that you've missed.

The Bottle Episode: If I could save a show in a bottle…

TiVo Blog - Fri, 03/22/2013 - 17:46
Sometimes less is more and sometimes that rule applies to TV shows. In TV, when an episode takes the characters in a show and places them in a restricted setting that uses as few non-regular characters as possible, it’s called a “bottle episode”. Stripping characters down (metaphorically, of course) to a single location and having an episode rely heavily on the dialogue instead of action or location changes has produced some great episodes of our favorite shows over the years and we’ve grouped them all together for you in this Continue Reading

MAC Tivo Transfer BACK to my TiVos

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 03/22/2013 - 15:22
Hi.

I bought Toast 11 for my MAC and downloaded and installed TiVo Desktop for MAC. I'm able to see my TiVo recordings and transfer them to my MAC without issues.

I cannot however transfer them BACK to my TiVos. When I pull up my MAC on my TiVo's it says: The iMac (blah blah) has no recordings.

Suggestions?

How to program TiVo glo sling remote to power and mute TV

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 03/22/2013 - 13:56
Ok I am trying to figure out how to program the tivo sling remote to power on and off my tv , well actually my sound bar, but it will basically be the same. I am doing to so the tivo thinks it is connected to a powered HDMI device while the TV is powered off and I am remotely watching via sling.

I have looked around and saw some complicated instructions about jp1.com but before I attempt that whole procedure to program an entire remote I want to know if anyone has figured this out yet or if there is a way to program just the mute and power button.
