Do you think I can put my Tivo in my luggage and fly with it?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 10/03/2013 - 16:36
I normally carry my tivo onboard with me but I am not taking that much clothes so there is room in my check in bag to put it in there. If I surround it with clothes do you think it would safe to fly from California to NYC?

S3 upgrade help please.

Hey Everyone,
Forgive me if i posted in the wrong spot. I'm 99.9% sure my hard drive died, as it was making a racket, and it will not show up or be recognized in any computer either. My Series 3 was completely stock, never hacked, so i did not have a disk image. I found and purchased instant cake, which was a waste of time and money. I did find a link on these forums to an S3 image for WinMFS and MFS live. I had a 500GB drive just laying here so i used WinMFS to put the image onto the new drive. I thought i had success, as i was able to go through the whole setup process, but i had to do the delete and clear everything to set everything with my service which is lifetime on this unit. Now it hangs at the welcome power on screen. I pulled the drive and WinMFS said it wasn't a Tivo drive. I also tried another 500BG drive, both times expanding the drive when asked if I want to. That one as well will not even get through the initial setup. I did download the truncated image again, to be sure that nothing had happened to it. and did the drive over again. Again i was able to go through the setup, but when clear and delete, it hangs on the welcome screen. Have tried some kickstarts, but those don't seem to be working at all. I am using Parallels on an iMac with XP. Not sure if that may be part of my issue? I can boot off of the ISO for MSFlive, but not having another drive to clone, doesn't help me. Im not sure what i can do with the image i found on this forum for MSFlive? I thought you had to have 2 drives? Sorry for the lengthy post. I'm hesitant to spend the money on a preformated drive, if the same thing will happen to that when i install it. Any help would be appreciated.

Great episode! I just watched this over lunch and kept laughing. I loved all three of the stories (well four if you count the kids) and thought they were done well.

Mini, Moca, wi-fi, Oh my... still confused

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 10/03/2013 - 11:22
So I finally ditched my S2 when I moved to new residence and new ISP (Xfinity). I got a Premiere-4 and Mini and Moca-Adapter and POE. When I first did setup on the P4, there was no Moca available yet and a wireless connection was required. Fine, did that. Then the electrician came to create a drop in another room -- went from a 3-way splitter to a 4-way. That's when I installed the Moca/Mini/poe. Installation was pretty straightforward. I don't think I could have screwed it up. (but I never rule that out!). There were a few cycles of comcast doing and re-doing the pairing/validation to get it all right, but other than that, nothings changed.

Mostly the streaming to the Mini works fine. There was some intermittent audio dropping a bit, but these forums confirmed that was widespread issue apparently due to some update. But as I continued to use the Mini, I see that it does not playback High-Def properly at all. It plays for 3 seconds and then all audio drops out permanently, then video gets choppy.

I couldn't find anything similar on these forums.. and have read gazillions of threads about Moca/mini til my head is spinning. Everybody's setup seems just different enough that I am not sure if what I am reading would apply to my problem. I submitted a support ticket and they came back with the P4 needs to use Moca, not wi-fi.

This is confusing me because I thought the wi-fi was just for internet access for getting programming info. I thought the P4 has built-in Moca and it is connected to the wall so shouldn't it be using it already??? Prior to purchasing it, spoke to tech support and they described requirements and confirmed this setup was fine.

How do I get my P4 to use Moca if it is not already using it? I went to Network Settings and nothing there is Moca-related. And does that sound like what the problem really is?

setup: basement: 1ghz, 4-way splitter
room 1: modem,router,moca-adapter,ups
room 2: P4 on jack and wi-fi
room 3: Mini on jack

HD failure? Stuck in guided setup N11

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 10/03/2013 - 11:05
Bought used lifetime Tivo HD from reputable seller on ebay. We cannot get thru guided setup. It stalls on "getting info" and says "connection interrupted with code N11"

we've tried---wireless connection, wired, phone connection (and a phone connection at a friend's house). It always gets to the same spot and stops. Tivo says they can see it makes a connection, just doesn't hold it.

Is this a hard drive problem? We've done power cycling, kickstart codes, router port openings, etc. Trying to decide whether to return it to the seller and find another one or if I'm missing something.

Thank you!

Shows worth watching that got cancelled during or after their first season ...

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 10/03/2013 - 11:04
There have been quite a few shows that never made it beyond the first season that I really enjoyed watching. Some got cancelled mid-season, while others simply didn't get renewed for a second season. I have watched many of these shows after the fact, knowing full well that the story would never be told to completion. Despite this, I found a lot of them to be well worth while.

Some examples (in no particular order):

New Amsterdam
Now and Again
Life on Mars (US version)
Freaks & Geeks
My So-Called Life
Day Break
Grosse Pointe
The Tick (live action version)
Harsh Realm
Firefly (this one goes without saying)

I'm always on the lookout for another rare gem that I may have missed. :)

N11-can't get thru guided setup-tivo hd-at wit's end! help!

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 10/03/2013 - 10:15
Bought our 2nd TiVo (an HD with lifetime service) on ebay from a reputable seller. We have tried since Sunday and cannot get through guided setup. It gets stuck on "getting info" after a couple of minutes and says "connection interrupted." We have tried
-wireless connection
-Ethernet to modem direct connection
-phone connection
-taking to someone else's home and using their phone connection

We get the same error N11 every time---at about the same time. Per TiVo (we've called three times) it makes a brief one minute connection to them but doesn't stay connected. We've called Charter (our cable company), reset our router, opened ports, etc. We've done jumpstart codes 57 (and others) with no errors showing but still no connects.

Is my hard drive (or other part) messed up? I can still return it using EBay's buyer protection, but I'm not sure if it is a problem with the unit or with the user :-(

Any suggestions so greatly appreciated and welcomed

Getting Correct Comcast CableCard

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 10/03/2013 - 09:40
I have a new Roamio Pro coming next week.
I need to take everything (2x DTAs, 1 HDDVR, 1x TivoXL CableCard) back to Comcast and get a CableCard for the Roamio.

Is there a way to determine what cablecard I need to pick up and what firmware is on the Card? It's a 20 min drive each way and do not want to make multiple trips.

Would it be better to order the card over the phone?

Maybe I should get the card first to ensure everything is working before returning other equipment.


managing Netflix Queue on a Series 3

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 10/03/2013 - 09:29
I have some Series 3 TiVos that are working good for the most part, but recently I have noticed that managing their Netflix Queue is next to impossible. There is really no longer a way to manage your Queue via your online account (probably due to their recent addition of "profiles") and there is no direct way to search for something within the Netflix app on them.

I know you can search for something through the TiVo search function, but was looking for something easier. I have used the android app "My Netflix Q" in the past, but with "profiles" added, it has sort of messes up this app.

Any other suggestions on how to easily & better manage a Netflix Queue with a Series 3 TiVo?

Kindle Paperwhite, The Second Coming (It’s A Winner)

Zatz Not Funny! - Thu, 10/03/2013 - 07:07

Exactly one year ago, I received Amazon’s first illuminated Kindle. And the Paperwhite display did not live up to the breathless marketing hype (and product imagery). I tried to give it a chance, but ultimately the smudgy, cross hatching towards the bottom of the display was more of a distraction than the lighting was a [...]

I decided to update my viewing experience and traded my 2 Series 2s for Directv's Genie. I don't have anything negative to say about my Series 2 because they have served me well for the past 12 years.

I'll still be around on this forum! The forum is great!

s03 error when forcing update

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 10/03/2013 - 00:35
short story: i have s03 errors when forcing a connection to the tivo service. as a result i can not get new guide data. tivo is replacing my unit with a premiere for $49.

long story:this first started with GC not completing and my guide data not updating as a result. i did a guided setup and ran into s03 error. i did a KS57. rest of the story is mentioned above.

i actually upgraded my hard drive many years ago. do i really need a new tivo or can i just swap in my original hard drive to fix it? i'm just curious. i'm going to replace the tivohd with a premiere anyways. i swear, i better not get the GC issue associated with the tuning adapter.

Getting a random V58 error on the Mini, but not on the Roamio

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 10/03/2013 - 00:30
I've got a Mini connected via MoCA to a Roamio Plus. For the most part, the Roamio is not having any problems. The Mini seems to have nightly problems.

Tonight, the Mini could not get certain channels(V58 error) that my Roamio is not having any problems receiving. It's happening on a random basis and on random channels. I can't seem to find a common reason. I've tried forcing the Tivo service, I've tried rebooting the mini, nothing seems to work.

I'm also having another problem another problem since getting a new Samsung 6300 smart TV connected on HDMI 2. It seems like every night there's a problem with HDMI handshake.

getting base premiere, have questions

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 10/03/2013 - 00:28
im replacing my tivo hd with a premiere for $49. with a 30 day return policy, why not? i only care about dvr functionality.

1) i've heard there were lag issues when the premiere just came out there were lag issues. is this still an issue?

2) HD upgrades. is this possible like with the tivo hd?

3) any issues with twc/tuning adapter compatibility? the tivo hd has garbage collection/guide issues that have been plaguing me.

Black screen no sound

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 10/02/2013 - 23:37
Now that the fall season is here it's time to start recording again but! I turned on my Toshiba RS-tx20 and was met with a black screen. It is connected to a Comcast digital transport adapter INTO THE RF JACK for the last 2 years with no problems. I changed out the box thinking that was the problem and after testing the new box I still have the same problem. I repeated guided setup and when it asked me if i was connected to a cable box I answered yes but I thought the next question was supposed to be how am I connected (RF or RCA) that question never comes as well as the screen to setup and test the IR blaster. I remember those screens from other Series 2 setups

I get a screen asking if I see video right after it asked about my channel line up. when I answer no I get stuck in a question loop to fix my box check my VIDEO INPUTS and try again. when I check my account screen it shows I'm connected via RF but there is an error. If I try feeding a signal into the Composite jacks during setup the screen remains black. If I unplug the cable box power from the wall the Tivo will say searching for signal on cable in.

If I bypass and say I will troubleshoot later there is no place (that I can see) to change inputs in any screen. Other then the input problem the Tivo works fine (playback, menus, recording dvd's ect). All cables and 2 cable boxes (working) were tested during this process.

I'm lost on this one and welcome any suggestions.

Help w/HD upgrade Premiere 2 to 4 and backwards

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 10/02/2013 - 23:14
This is going to be hard as heck to explain.

I have a Premiere 2 upgraded w/internal 2TB. Works great.

I bought my niece a Premiere 4. I want to KEEP the 4 and give her the 2. But I want my 2TB back.

I don't suppose there is any way in heck I can just swap the HD's inside? If not, how do I go about dealing with this maneuver? I could just get another 2TB but I'm already going to be paying her subscription for a few years and don't want to spend any more money on her (and it's unlikely she'll need the space).

I guess Aaron thinks he knows what's going on with his "revival"?

Looks like what happened in the 6 months after the power went off again is going to be revealed in little, short flashbacks. What made the computers crash? Looks like whatever Aaron was doing has turned off The Tower's power as well.

What's going on with Charlie and Monroe?

And, we can't complain this season about how clean and tidy everyone is, now can we?
