When I watched the first eposode I wasn't sure if they were going to be able to keep up the twists and turns and the suspense. Well it looks like they have. Just when you think you know whats going to happen, they throw you a curve. This has become of the the must see shows for me. My wife even commented last nite, 2/25/13, that the back ground music has also been very good.

Cablevision Sues Viacom Over Bundling of Little-Watched Channels

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 02/26/2013 - 14:32
Typical Dolans. They sue content providers for exactly the same practice they've been using with their channels for years. Not to mention how they (and other cable/sat providers) force consumers into those same types of bundles.

TiVo Mini Rumored To Launch March 6 @ $100

Zatz Not Funny! - Tue, 02/26/2013 - 14:01
While I can’t vouch for the source, one TiVo Community forum member indicates he attended “dealer training” — where he came away with the final pieces of the TiVo Mini puzzle. And we’re purportedly looking at a March 6th retail launch, with hardware running $100. As expected, assuming this pans out, the TiVo Mini will [...]

Hockey Lovers, Unite!

TiVo Blog - Tue, 02/26/2013 - 12:30
The NHL lockout compromised half of our hockey season this year. For those of us who had an empty place in our hearts throughout the hiatus, the best way to fill it was with a few hockey classics! Some of the first movies that come to mind are the three in the The Mighty Ducks trilogy. Who can forget Coach Bombay and team, quacking their way into our hearts? Goldberg’s one-liners and rambling smack talk are timelessly hilarious.  And when Herb Brooks’ team finally learns to get along in Miracle Continue Reading

Dancing with the Stars new cast announced 2/26/2013

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 02/26/2013 - 10:51
Season premieres March 18 on ABC.

Here's a full list of the season 16 pairs announced Tuesday:
  • Boxer Victor Ortiz and new pro Lindsay Arnold
  • Singer Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough
  • Country star Wynonna Judd and Tony Dovolani
  • Soap star Ingo Rademacher and Kym Johnson
  • Disney Channel star Zendaya Coleman and Valentin Chmerkovskiy
  • Comedian Andy Dick and Sharna Burgess
  • Reality star Lisa Vanderpump and new pro Gleb Savchenko
  • Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman and Mark Ballas
  • Olympic skater Dorothy Hamill and Tristan MacManus
  • Comedian D.L. Hughley and Cheryl Burke
  • NFL star Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff

The comments over on ABC.com are, of course, full of comments from little whiners who say this is the worst cast ever, their favorite pros are missing, yada yada yada.

I for one am happy to see the new pros being stirred into the mix. The pros have their own careers, and I think it's good both for them and for the show if they are able to take some time off. If no one one had left the show since Season 1 or 2, then we wouldn't have seen Chelsie Hightower, because there wouldn't have been a place for her, you know?

Out of 11 people, I have four to root for (and one of them is in the holy crap, I can't believe it, jaw-dropping happy category), so I'm plenty happy. I guess that proves I'm an old fart, and shows why the babies are already whining WORST CAST EVER. :rolleyes:

How I Met Your Mother - Weekend at Barney's - OAD 02/25/13

How did you feel about this episode?

For those suffering from Downton Abbey withdrawal

Parade's End. A new mini series on HBO. Begins tonight.

http://tv.nytimes.com/2013/02/26/art...-hall.html?hpw

“Parade’s End” tells the story of a bad marriage, set in a much broader context of a rotting civilization.

And that’s the real difference between it and “Downton Abbey.” That show is a gauzy anachronism in period costumes; the first novel of “Parade’s End” was published in 1924, and the series is enmeshed in the great cataclysm of the time, underscoring the cruelty of the age as much as its charm.

Castle 2/25/2013

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 02/26/2013 - 08:29
That was a pretty conclusion to the first part. Whoever mentioned that Castle's dad was involved hit a home run. When that character first showed up it was pretty obvious who it was. You don't bring James Brolin on a TV show as a bit character.

Castle's Dad's backstory is weird considering the Nikki Heat books. Spoilerized for folks that haven't read them yet:
Spoiler:
In the books, Nikki's mom (who is obviously Beckett's mom) was killed because she was secretly a CIA operative. So now we have an author, Richard Castle, who wrote a book where the main character's mom was a secret CIA operative who later finds out that his own father is a CIA operative. That seems like poor storytelling on the writers of Castle's part. Couldn't they have done something with his dad's character that wasn't exactly what happened with Heat's mom. If I remember correctly, didn't Heat's mom even work out of Paris? If it had happened the other way around it would make more sense.


Anyway, good episode.

Bitcasa Unlimited Cloud Storage $69-$99 a year. Is it a good place to save programs?

See C|NET Article.

Does anyone think this might now or in the future be a good place to store transferred Tivo programs, whether they came originally via Tivo Desktop, PyTivo, or kmmtg? Pros and cons of using this or any other cloud service for storing Tivo programs?

The Following - The Fall - S01E06 - OAD 2/25/13

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 02/26/2013 - 00:05
Did anyone not see SWAT being impersonated by followers coming? :D

The super-duper IT computer whiz follower somehow misses the massive media coverage of the FBI surrounding the cabin.

Follower actually utters the dialog "I'm your follower". If that doesn't prove this show is a spoof of itself...

The female redshirt police deputy that I predicted last week turned out to be a redshirt follower instead. So I was wrong. But, at least I was right about her not surviving the episode.

Funny bit for me was when Ryan calls Westin. Westin sees the phone ring, honestly looks like he has no idea what to do, and has to wait for head FBI lady to tell him to answer the phone.

Westin predictably shows up late again, this time with a better than usual excuse, shot by a follower.

I'm doubling-down on my prediction that Westin is secretly a follower. I think his secret cult name is "Roderick", and yes, I think he planned to have himself shot in order to preserve his facade of incompetent stupidity. Ironically, he's actually the smartest character on the series.

Emma deserts her two faux-gay companions. Worst threesome ever.

Instead of leaving a phone in plain sight, we leave a knife in plain sight of a trained FBI agent.

Kid still thinks Emma is his friend. Dumbest kid ever. Probably a follower. My #2 choice for being "Roderick".

I love this show. I'm having so much fun with it.

Comcast.

So I got a Tivo in January.

I thought that by returning the Comcast DVR, I would end up paying $10 less a month, on my bill.

It turns out that Comcast then adjusts the "credits" I get on my promotion, actually causing my bill to go up by $2-3.

I tried talking to a rep on the phone, but it doesn't look like there's much they can do. I'm going to go to their on-site store and just see if I can talk to someone. I don't expect much to be done, but it just seems better to talk to someone in person.

I can post a summary of the sections for my bills in Dec., Jan., and Feb. if anyone's interested, to see how by bill is different. I got the Tivo in early January.

I'm going to take all 3 bills to them.

Using InstantCake via VMware Fusion 5 on iMac 11,3

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 02/25/2013 - 21:21
I have a TiVo Series 3 HD (TCD652160) whose hard drive died a horrible grinding death. Unable to use MFSLive to backup/restore to another hard drive (seemingly infinite read errors on the drive).

Enter InstantCake (yay!). I bought a 1TB WD "red" SATA drive and plugged it in to my SATA-to-USB interface adapter on my iMac. I downloaded the InstantCake ISO for my TiVo (it won't let me post a link but go to dvrupgrade dot com) and then in Fusion created a new VM guest and pointed to the ISO as the boot device.

New virtual machine booted fine, but it became apparent to me I had no idea how to tell it what the CD-ROM device was. There's no apparent mount point for /.

Short version...use the command "dmesg | grep CD" and it will spit out the device that the CD-ROM (or the ISO image) is mounted on, in my case it was hdc--so that also told me that I need to specify it as a PATA device.

Then, in Fusion, logically "connect" the SATA drive to the guest VM. That will result in some console messages that will make it obvious which device the SATA disk is appearing on (in my case it was sda). This will be a SATA device for InstantCake.

Then, in the InstantCake installer (which you either cancelled out of after boot with Ctrl-C, or you let it fail to a # prompt; you can restart it with the command PTVbake3), I told it my CD-ROM was a PATA device on hdc, and my SATA drive was a SATA device on sda.

The installer worked perfectly after that.

TiVo’s Most Watched Oscar Moments Of The Night!

TiVo Blog - Mon, 02/25/2013 - 19:00
According to TiVo audience research measurement data from last night’s 85th annual Academy Awards, TiVo users were moved by heartfelt acceptance speeches, like that from Christoph Waltz, and the musical montages. Perhaps due to the long telecast, TiVo’s top five moments all occurred in the first 45 minutes of the show. Also, three of the top five moments were host Seth MacFarlane’s skits or jokes. That’s three more than last year’s show host, Billy Crystal, had in TiVo’s 2012 top five moments (see the 2012 top moments here)! Interestingly enough, Continue Reading
