Has anyone been able to get v3.0 of the Tivo iPhone/iPad app to work with the minis?

After upgrading they no longer appear in the Select DVR list.

I followed these instructions http://www.iphonefaq.org/archives/971543 to go back to the previous version of the app, and can now control them again from my iPhone.

Surprised there is no thread for the 2013 finale...

What did everyone think of last night's performances?

I am about to hit the road and deal with the commute, but thought I would start the thread to get the ball rolling and check out the comments (and chime in) later...

What did you think of the Carly Rae Jepson song from the Coke influence?

Tivo Premiere won't let me scan,or restart

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 05/16/2013 - 09:27
I recently bought a used Tivo Premiere,which I haven't activated yet.One reason being I'm waiting for Zap2it to update its TV Guide for my area -which I've been told,could take awhile,but,it will get done.Our lone analog channel flastcut to digital today,so,now the listings are out again...

So...

2 things I notice:

1)If I try to restart,I press 3 thumbs down,enter,then nothing happens,except the boom,boom,boom audio effect. lol

2)I tried to scan for digital channels,but,same as above.

Is this because I haven't activated the Tivo box?

Fortunately,I can dial in the NEW 12.1 channel direct and watch it.

Too bad there isn't a way to just add one channel,but,I have the same problem with my Sony Bravia TV,you have to do a new 'scan' for digital channels,yet with my parents Toshiba,you just have to dial it in and if it's there,it'll lock it in.

On another note:

I can sign up at tivo.com/activate ,right,have to commit for 1 year and,then,if I want to cancel,I have to phone the 877 number,correct?

So-so episode for me.

Luke's quote after falling out of the RV bathroom was the highlight for me :)

wow the burger chicks were hard headed. why not take the money for more trucks then use those profits for the restaurant? they admitted this wasnt enough for the restaurant so it did seem like flailing a bit

i had the same reaction as mark when the movie was pitched. i thought it would be about racing bikes around a track like you can race cars at speedways now. plop down some money and get to ride like the pros

i thougth the photobooth was a bit silly and the guys were toooo slick. i didnt understand where all the props come from? do you buy them? no way could u rent as people will jsut steal them. i didnt catch the price of the photo array? they all did look funny in the outfits, esp the pimps

i think robert missed the mark on the bike one. there's a group of parents out there willing to spend to get their kids every leg up and while i wouldnt invest, she had some decent number

Supernatural - Sacrifice" - 5/15/13 *Season Finale*

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 05/16/2013 - 05:08
I have so many feelings. That's FOUR brother hugs this season! FOUR!!!!!
Spoiler:
And that scene with Sam and Dean was one of the most powerful brother moments of the series. Sam's greatest sin is always letting Dean down. Dean telling Sam that nothing and nobody, past or present will ever come before his little brother. I just..... don't even look at me. I'm not crying like a baby right now.

I have to admit. I was pretty fearful of the whole Cas falling thing. I figured they would break continuity with Anna to do it and I wasn't going to like it. This though, this I can accept. I still don't love they are going in this direction with Cas because he's now just a "baby in a trenchcoat" and what the hell is he going to do next season? Just tag along with the boys? He's pretty useless like this. And I love badass Cas so much. I guess I'll just have to look forward to him getting his grace back at some point.

And hats off to everyone's acting this episode. Jared especially. That was emmy worthy. Mark Sheppard knocked it out of the park as well. I'm curious what happens with Crowley now that they didn't finish. Will he stay at this in between good/bad or will he eventually go back to his old evil self? I enjoyed his snark so I kinda hope the latter.

Jody lived! Thought when I heard she was making a guest spot they'd just kill her off too! I am bummed about Alaina. Abaddon survived but I don't see how she could ever go back into that meat suit again. And she was good, SO GOOD in that role. Maybe my favorite demon next to Crowley.

I'm not sure what else I have to say. Next season with no angels and all the demons still roaming should be very interesting.

Thoughts??

TiVo Desktop Plus no longer finds TiVo Premiere

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 05/15/2013 - 19:53
My Tivo Desktop Plus application has always found my Tivo Premiere. It can no longer find it when I try to transfer recorded material.

It is connected with a Tivo wireless adapter. I have tried re-seating the adapter and it connects to the internet, so I know that it is working on my network, but it is still not seen by the Tivo Desktop Plus application.

Any suggestions?

Cheers,
Bob.

Premiere Q vs XL4

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 05/15/2013 - 17:55
Was looking to pickup a used XL4 and instead found a Q for sale. Can't find any definitive explanation of the Q vs the XL4. They appear to be similar. Are they the same? If not, what are the differences? I know that it's an MSO offering and it was available before the XL4 Are these boxes the property of the MSO and only available for lease, or is this a legitimate end-user sale? Any issues with buying it and adding on a lifetime subscription? Thanks.

Thumbs Up / Green for Constructive Posts

Can we implement a feature where for every post we can give it a thumbs up or down, or green or red, like they do in other forums and display a net popularity score?

It would encourage more constructive posts, discourage "troll" or unconstructive replies, and give readers an idea as to what the forum readership thinks of each post.

KMTTG on OSX -> Custom Command help

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 05/15/2013 - 15:13
Looking for guidance / help.

KMTTG on OSX and looking to have the file once processed as an AppleTV, ComSkip, MetaData put into iTunes. Encoder Out files have their own directory.

I played with using Automator to do this by moving any new files to
iTunes\ iTunes Media\Automatically Add to iTunes
where the file would autoload into iTunes Library. Issue is that the metadata file is put there first, before download/decrypt/comskip/encoding, and that file (the Metadata) is moved too quickly, and Automic Parsley does not have it to run at the end. --- I Could try to 'copy' the files, but would have a double storage need until I clean up the encoded files.

I then tried to write a shell script to move the file. The following in a text file named move-it.sh in the same directory as kmttg jar file;

Quote: mv -f "$1" /Volumes/Raid5-upper/iTunes/iTunes\ Media/Automatically\ Add\ to\ iTunes/ did the chmod +x move-it.sh

then on the Programs Tab of the Configuration of kmttg I put
Quote: move-it.sh [encodeFile] it did not work :confused:

So, does anyone have a working solution that moves the completed (post metatag) file to another directory?

I Have A Motorola Cable Box From Comcast. Connects To A Series 2 TIVO Via A Serial Control Cable.
Problem: Lately The TIVO Occasionally Records Either 1 Channel Above Or Below The Desired Channel.
I've Checked The Cable & It's Properly Seated. I've Powered Off Of Cable Box And TIVO And Cycled Them. The Problem Persists, But It's Random.

Any Suggestions Appreciated.

ESPN Considers the Whispernet Model

Zatz Not Funny! - Wed, 05/15/2013 - 09:24
There was a big story out last week that a lot of people missed. According to The Wall Street Journal (as reported by electronista), ESPN is weighing the idea of subsidizing users’ wireless data for mobile streaming of ESPN video. That would mean that the sports network would pay for bandwidth used by consumers to watch ESPN [...]

I dont know why this function isnt getting the proper criticism it deserves. Am I the only one who finds the auto shut off feature of the Mini, one of the worst ideas Tivo has ever come up with? For the life of me I cannot figure out ANY reasoning why Tivo included this useless feature.
