TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 03/09/2013 - 11:54
Great news!

Our patch is now available for customers to download. This patch will restore the TiVoToGo transfer feature. For more information and instructions on how to apply the patch, please visit our support page http://support.tivo.com/app/answers/...a_id/196#Known.

If you were having trouble prior to February 16th or having trouble with a different feature of TiVo Desktop, this patch is unrelated and may not be applicable.

This patch only applies to TiVo Desktop 2.8.3 for Windows PCs and older versions of TiVo Desktop and other 3rd party applications and devices such as ReadyDLNA devices, Windows Home Server devices, Roxio Toast/Popcorn for Mac may still be incompatible. Until a software update is made available for TiVo DVRs, these 3rd party devices and software may not allow transfers. The availability date for these software updates is still to be determined.\


Thank you again for your patience.

Tivo plugin for Plex

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 03/09/2013 - 11:47
I don't know how many of you are Plex fans but I love the media server. There was a Tivo plugin developed that allowed us to watch all our Tivo recordings without downloading, within the Plex environment. I don't understand the specifics of how it worked but the plugin is broken and the author seems to have abandoned it. I have a copy of the latest, that still does not work although it can see the recordings in each Tivo, just not begin to play them.

Is there anybody talented enough and willing to step up and fix this? I believe it is currently Mac only but it would be great to see cross development. Plex has media servers for Mac, PC, Linux and DLNA. Clients for mac, Windows, GoogleTV, Roku, Samsung, LG, Android, IOS, and more.

The Plugins go in the Server application, currently 3 Mac, PC, Linux.

Any takers? https://github.com/plexinc-plugins/TiVo.bundle

KMTTG & Videoredo

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 03/09/2013 - 11:14
This probably is not possible, but I thought I would ask.

Right now, I have a list of auto transfers set up to automatically download shows to my PC and cut commercials in VideoRedo.

I'm sure people who have done this know that different shows/different channels have different threshold levels. That being said, what will work great for one show will not work well for another show.

So, my question is in the auto transfer section is there a way to pass different threshold levels (to videoredo) based on the show I am transfering?

Again, my guess is (at least at this point is) it is not possible, but I thought I would ask.

Move Drive From Tivo HD To New Tivo Premiere 4?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 03/09/2013 - 10:20
I just ordered a new TiVo Premiere 4 from TiVo. From what I understand the Premiere 4 comes with a 500 gb drive but can only record 75 hours of HD programming. My current TiVo HD has a 500 gb drive (I installed this drive myself to increase recording time from 20 hours to 180) but has room to record @ 180 hours of HD programming. Anyone know why the difference? I ask this question because I just ordered a new Premiere 4 and planned to move the drive from my TiVo HD to the premiere? Also, will I be able to simply swap the TiVo Premiere 4's drive with the one from my TiVo Hd?

Search by Title does not find show episodes in guide

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 03/09/2013 - 09:07
There are two variants of the show "Top Gear":

* the UK version that airs on my BBCAHD channel
* the US version that airs on HSTRYHD channel

I see episodes for both shows in the guide. However, when I do a "Find Shows > Search by Title", only the US episodes on HSTRYHD show up; I have no way of adding a season pass for the UK version on BBCAHD.

However, if I go to the guide and select a UK episode, it offers me the option to add a season pass, which I can do successfully, and I see that it schedules the episodes for recording.

Why do the BBCAHD episodes not show up in "Search by Title"? I searched past threads before posting this. I made sure the channel was enabled in the channel list, and I repeated Guided Setup to no avail.

The following movie demonstrates the problem:

Any ideas? I've ended up missing the last 1.5 years of Top Gear UK because it didn't show up in my search when I changed cable companies, and I assumed I no longer had access to it. Thanks, TiVo...

Suits "Normandy" 2/14/13 S02E15

This thread is for the second to last episode, not the season finale!

I've been catching up on the second half of the season over the last few days. This episode is a good example of why I like Louis. He really did charge in as Rachel's knight and then when he couldn't help, he fell on his sword for her. Watching her cry at the end of the episode was heart-breaking. I had thought maybe they brought the new blonde in as a female to replace Rachel going off to Boston, but I guess not.

I'm less interested in this ongoing Folsom Foods case. I'd rather see different cases each week. I did like that they finally figured out only the women without children and families could get promoted.

I didn't mind Hardman in an episode or two as the adversary, but he's overstayed his welcome. I'd like this arc with Pearson Hardman knocked back on its heels to be wrapped up. I wonder if the merger will really happen.

TiVo Mini Hits Retail Outposts

Zatz Not Funny! - Fri, 03/08/2013 - 20:11
TiVo hasn’t yet gotten around to officially launching the TiVo Mini, but that didn’t inhibit at least one retailer from selling a unit today. And while cmonroe didn’t exactly out the “big box” store, we’ll go ahead and assume it’s Best Buy. There’s probably not much left to learn at this point in regards to [...]

Lines across screen on LIVE TV

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 03/08/2013 - 19:34
Ok I have developed problem number two with my tivo, this forum helped me out with my first problem, I hope it can help once more.
1. the unit is about 9 months old.
2. the original 80 gig drive locked up and was clicking after 4 months.
I replaced that drive about 5 months ago with a seagate 160gb.
after i downloaded the tivo image from this forum I was back up and running on the 160gb drive.
3. New problem has now since occurred I have lines going across my screen during live tv playback thus when i record a show i record these lines as well.
the lines do not appear on the welcome screen or the menu screens only on live tv and not all the time some days i record fine other days i get lines then no lines then lines again... I videotaped the lines and posted on youtube.
I am hooked up with composite cables out to my dvd recorder then in to the tv set.
I will try hooking the tivo direct in a moment and then re post to rule out the dvd recorder.
Edit: I have ruled out the dvd recorder by hooking a new set of composite cables direct from tivo unit to the tv...
any help would be appreciated i have never had such a rotten unit in my life i have owned replaytv's now for over ten years and they still work and like i said this tivo leaves much to be desired having two serious problems in the first nine months if it would be for the fact i bought lifetime service on it i would **** can this to the garbage can.... thank you....
since i can not post a link yet, add the http : // www . to the front of my link and it will work for the video.

TiVo Mini Unboxing

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 03/08/2013 - 19:15
To protect the identity of the "big box" store that couldn't resist selling me one of these I won't mention names but I'm sure you can guess :)

On a fluke I called to see if they had any in stock. At first they said they didn't even have that product in their system, but put me on hold to check the back. They came back stating they did have some and I asked for one to be held for me to pickup as they are "very hard to find right now", and they did so without question.

When I arrived at the store it was there waiting. Even with no SKU in the system it rung up without issue and I was out the door 2 minutes later. I picked this up literally 20 minutes ago and haven't even activated it yet. Here are some unboxing pictures. It should be running shortly, if you have any questions feel free to ask and I'll to my best to respond!

Celebrating “Movie MacGuffins”

TiVo Blog - Fri, 03/08/2013 - 18:53
What’s in Marsellus Wallace’s briefcase? What are the specific powers of the Necronomicon? What’s so special about Pee-Wee’s bike? At the end of the day, the answers to each of these questions doesn’t matter because all three of these objects are merely MacGuffins. What’s a MacGuffin? Well sometimes to drive a story forward, writers invent an object that the characters can covet and chase after thus moving the plot ahead and putting the characters into situations they might otherwise not have gotten themselves into. Still confused? Don’t be! This week, Continue Reading

Not sure how long this will last in Google's cache, but Dan dug this up based on CNET's slipup earlier today. It's possible the details could change as we don't know the reason TiVo delayed the launch.

Is there anyway to chance the Tivo's screen size. This Tv in the place I moved into (And therefor can't replace it) majorly oversanes the picture, and I can't see anyway to fix it on the Tv. It's a Samsung TX-S2782H

incorrect times on ToDo list starting Sunday on HD Menu

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 03/08/2013 - 14:28
Starting with this coming Sunday, all the times on programs on my To Do list are listed as an hour earlier than the correct time. I assume this has something to do with the change to Daylight TIme this weekend. The times are CORRECT on the SD , and also on the program info on the HD screen. I called TiVO, and they said they are aware of the problem, but did not say if they;re doing anything about it! I asked if, because the times were correct on the SD menu, if the programs would be recorded at the CORRECT time. They did not have an answer for that. Huh???

TV Stars Hit the Big Screen in Oz: The Great and Powerful

The fantasy flick opened today in theaters across the country, but seeing what really happened before Dorothy crashed her house on a witch and traveled to the Emerald City isn’t the only thing we’re excited about. We can’t believe how many of our favorite TV stars followed the yellow brick road from the small screen to the silver screen!     James Franco as Oz Continue Reading
