D-Link WiFi Extender Features Apple AirPlay Streaming

Zatz Not Funny! - Fri, 02/07/2014 - 16:48

By way of the FCC, we learn that D-Link intends to build upon their diminutive WiFi extender (DAP-1320)… with newfound home audio capabilities housed within the upcoming DCH-M225 WiFi Audio Extender. In addition to expanding one’s wireless network to perhaps the far reaches of your home, the 81 gram plug-with-benefits also incorporates an audio-out jack – similar to [...]

Jay Leno Final “Tonight Show” – Top Moments

TiVo Blog - Fri, 02/07/2014 - 15:30
In 1992, Jay Leno took over Johnny Carson’s role as host of NBC’s late-night show. Last night, 22 years later, he’s signing off – and with quite a bang. On his final night of the ‘best job in show business’, his lineup would’ve given the big-dipper a run for its money: Oprah Winfrey, Billy Crystal, Kim Kardashian, Garth Brooks, Cheryl Crowe and Jack Black all preceded the concluding monologue which was complete with tears, jokes and a hand-off to Jimmy Fallon to take over the reins. So amid all of Continue Reading

How long does it usually take mfs it has been 20 hours now it's been on partition 7. This is with the source and destination on 2.0 USB external drives. There are no programs recorded on it just full guide and what ever Tivo puts on at 3 in the morning, I had it hooked up for a month to make sure modem and everything else was ok before putting large drive in is a S3 652. Should I give up do a clear and delete and try again? How long would it take after C/D?

Tivo Mini & Power on/off of Samsung HDTV

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 02/07/2014 - 13:17
Since we installed our Mini we've been having difficulty turning off our Samsung TV. The Mini is connected to the TV via HDMI. The Mini replaced a TivoHD that had been working flawlessly with the TV for four years.

I setup the remote control code, which is 0092, and the TV can be powered off/on. However, when we turn it off most of the time (90%) just a couple seconds later the TV turns back on again.

Thinking that there was a problem with the Mini sending commands over HDMI I went into the TV menus and defeated the HDMI-CEC. That didn't make a difference.

My next move will be to buy the component analog breakout cable and eliminate the HDMI connection entirely.

Does this seem familiar to anyone here? I'm wondering if the HDMI connection is a red herring, and something has simply become faulty in the TV?

live streaming suggestion with a Series 3

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 02/07/2014 - 11:51
I have been looking at getting a Stream, but then recently decided I might try something else. I have a fully functional TiVo series 3. It is not subscribed to, but I was able to pair a cable card with it (S-card) and make it basically a SUPER no-frills cable box in a workshop area of my house.

It works fine for my needs and since Comcast is only charging me $1.50 for the cable card, it beats renting one of their lousy boxes. Mine is HD too.

That being said, I was thinking I could hook up a Slingbox to the outputs of this unsubscribed TiVo S3 and use it to view live channels outside my home and most likley not disturb anyone watching it in the house (since it in a workshop area). Anyone ever try something similar?

I am also well aware that I would not be able to get any guide data and/or watch any recorded programs with a slingbox, but I currently can't do this anyway and I was mainly interested in "live" TV on the road anyway.

Netflix and On Demand Missing from My Shows

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 02/07/2014 - 10:27
My Roamio connected @ 8:08 this morning and now Netflix, On Demand, and the other options that used to be listed below my recordings in My Shows are missing. Tried connecting again but it did not fix the problem. I have Xfinity. Anyone else experiencing this?

Are these 2 issues related: C133 error and TIVO App "Cannot connect to Tivo Box"?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 02/07/2014 - 08:42
I have been using my TIVO Roamio Pro for the past 3 months and very happy with it. It is directly connected via ethernet. It has performed well and I also enjoy using the TIVO App on my iPhone and iPad.

Last night, for the first time I got the dreaded C133 error. I have no idea why since everything was working fine. I cold booted the TIVO etc. but the error returned.

I also noted for the first time that the TIVO App would not connect to the TIVO Box.

Are these 2 issues related? What is going on ? (I actually do not understand how the App works ... does it connect to the box via WiFi? But I have not set up wifi on the Roamio since it is on ethernet? How does it then control things?)



Is it possible to remove YouTube?

Can I remove the YouTube app from the Mini? I can do it on the Roamio, but the same Channel options do not exist on the Mini.

Roamio Stuttering Issues

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 02/07/2014 - 08:12
Former Tivo user....back after a few years off.
I just got a new Tivo Roamio Plus and a Tivo Mini.
I got everything going on the Roamio but notice that on just about every recording the playback stutters or stops and sometimes pixelates right near the end of the program. Usually in the last 5 minutes or so.
It doesn't happen all the time, but probably 90%.

I'm on Comcast using a Cablecard. Ehternet connected. Apple Airport Extreme.

Is there something that I'm missing that would be causing the stutter/stop problem?

Thanks in advance.

Sony Throws In the eReader Towel (and cuts off 3G)

Zatz Not Funny! - Fri, 02/07/2014 - 07:41

Amidst mounting losses across the board, Sony’s decided to jettison a few under performing businesses. While their exit from computers grabbed most of the headlines, they’ve also thrown in the towel on eReaders. Early on Sony actually produced the best eReader hardware. However, their success was held back due to pricing, marketing, and distribution. Not [...]

Cannot Schedule A Recording from Daily Picks

Every time I upgrade my version of Firefox, I cannot schedule a recording from "The Daily Picks" (https://tivo.com/tivo-tco/morebestbets.do) because I get the following error:

I had a slightly different error ... something about not being logged in ... so, I logged out and logged in again. Still getting the error of not knowing what to do with XML file.

I'm using Firefox 27.0. I transferred my settings from the previous version to this version. Apparently, since this happens every single time I upgrade Firefox, whatever setting it's looking for is not being upgraded.

Anyone know what that setting is supposed to be??



Beep To Discover What Sonos Knows

Zatz Not Funny! - Fri, 02/07/2014 - 07:19

Beep is latest entrant in whole-home audio. But, unlike Sonos‘ key products, their music streaming technology isn’t currently embedded within a speaker enclosure. And we suspect the potential market of people looking to network traditional speakers is rather modest. The $99 Beep appendage is sharp looking blinky, clicky dial … that’ll ratchet up your clutter [...]

Question for long time TiVo buyers

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 02/06/2014 - 22:44
Last TiVo I purchased was an HD and just got a Roamio. When did TiVo stop providing that nice bag of cables in the box?

So what happens now with late night TV?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 02/06/2014 - 21:57
Spoilers about tonight's final Jay Leno show in the link


So what happens now, a smooth transition to Jimmy Falon who is only 39? Or is there a Conan comeback or a move to get Letterman back?

Jay say he may be back on TV just not late night. And Jimmy was really negative to Leno for taking back over from Conan does that hurt the transition?

Copying shows from HD to Roamio

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 02/06/2014 - 21:53
I have a TiVo HD with a considerable number of shows that I won't be able to watch prior to the arrival of my new Roamio. I only have one cable card. Is it possible to transfer shows between them if one box does not have a cable card? Will the TiVo HD still communicate/transfer even if it's one of the cable card setup screen because it doesnt have a card?

HDVR2 with upgraded Power Supply

HDVR2 in good working order
The Power Supply has just been refurbished with New Capacitors and the Main Receiver board also has the modification for the 'Searching for Tuner 2' issue addressed with addition of capacitor.

It does need software upgrade - only reason it is not done is it will not connect over my VOIP telephone - needs regular land line.
Works fine with currently installed 6.2a, but needs the 6.4 software upgrade for the local channels.

Currently listed on EBay.


Asking $45 plus shipping

Note that a refurbished Power Supply alone is ~ $70 plus shipping!

It looks like tonight's (2/6/2014) Tonight Show with Jay Leno will be his finale show. There will not even be a show for 2/7.

I guess we will not know who will take his place until the Olympics is over.
