The Tivo Netflix interface is terrible. When I registered on Netflix online I went through a number of self-selection exercises ranking genres and individual shows/movies. Consequently, when online I'm offered plenty of interesting choices. However, through Tivo (activated with the same account) I'm recommended kids animation, anime, vapid comedies and other junk I wouldn't watch in a million years. Short of ranking every "suggestion" with my slow Tivo remote how can I get a better selection?
Is there any extra "stress" on the TiVo that occurs when you switch from "live" tv to a recorded show?
Is there "stress" induced when you try to transfer a recording from your TiVo to your computer?
My TiVo is having reboot issues occasionally even when left alone overnight. But it will almost certainly reboot if I try to transfer a recording or switch from Live TV to a recording.
As I noted in another post, I replaced the Power Supply and ran TiVo's SMART Hard Drive test (and it passed all the tests).
I'm trying to hook up a brand new Pioneer AVR and my Tivo is giving me trouble. It is giving me Tivo Error messages that say HDMI Not Permitted...and goes on about the tv or audio receiver not being compatible with HDCP digital rights management standards.
What the heck is this all about? I've never had this problem before???
I am having a major issue w/my TiVo rebooting.
At first I assumed a bad hard drive but I ran the TiVo HD (hard drive) tests and both the internal and external drive passed.
Then i called TiVo and they suggested I talk to Weaknees. Weaknees figured out it was a Power Supply issue (and indeed a capacitor was blown). Got a new Power Supply from Weaknees. It worked for 3 days and is not rebooting again.
Ran another HD tests and both internal and external drive passed. Power supply looks good. . .no blown caps this time.
Any thoughts? It seems to be steady when watching live TV but reboots when I try to watch a recording. It also reboots when I try to transfer a recording to my laptop.
Can it be an HD issue even if it passes the HD Smart Tests?
I should note that I have a 4 year old TiVo HD w/an eternal drive.
I believe I already know the answer but Ill ask anyway. I had to go to my brothers in another state for personal reasons. I have tivo plus.
Is there a way to transfer shows off my tivo to his tivo or my computer here?
I'm giving my old series 2 tivo to my daughter to use in the garage apartment. Because it's too far away from my router, I bought a Linksys RE1000 extender to use with my Linksys E4200 router which broadcasts a 5ghz signal and a 2.4ghz signal (guest network). The extender only uses 2.4 signal so the tivo will have to connect to the guest network.
Problem: the tivo won't connect. I've been told the wireless adapter only uses 5ghz signal but this adapter is pretty old and I'm pretty sure it uses the 2.4 signal.
I think the problem may be related to the guest network. It is not encrypted but it does require a password before allowing access. I can connect via a laptop from the garage apartment.
The tivo never asks for a password.
Are there any hacks or tricks to let this tivo access my guest network? If not, what do I need to do to let my tivo connect to my other tivos on my network so she can transfer shows?
It's been awhile since I've been to the forums (oddly, exactly 5 years ago today, in fact!), it's good to see they're still running strong.
I got the new THR-22 a couple of weeks ago, and have a question about the bouncing logo screensaver -- is there any way to turn it off, or at least what's the quickest way to clear it? Sometimes I need to pause for many minutes while watching a recorded show and the screensaver comes on, and I have a witch of a time getting it to clear off.
Is there an easy fix?

After much anticipation, the Lifeproof frē ($80) arrived at Best Buy last week. Like its predecessor, this iPhone 5 case is designed to protect your smartphone from dirt, water, and drops… in a much more svelte form factor than the fairly well known ruggedized Otterbox line. Yet, while Lifeproof’s marketing materials are compelling, I don’t have much confidence [...]
Whaaaaaat???? Cora is the Queen of Hearts???? Who saw THAT coming!?!?! :rolleyes:
Glad they tied up a few loose ends:
How Cora got out of Wonderland.
How the corner of FTL was untouched by the curse.
How Hook took Aurora's heart.
How people can readily tied up their defenseless friends and leave them behind to die.
How dwarves stand too close when other people are kissing. :)
A co-worker wondered "How did Gold know that the returnees would emerge at the well?" Beats me!
And where did Hook's ship come from? He had a beanstalk seed portal activator... how did all of that work?
So does anyone know what happened to Megazone?
Seems like I haven't seen any posts by him in awhile and nothing new on his blog since last July.

i no longer have directv but saw they are starting it in january. i do remember in the beginning it was great..then it sucked..then it went to being ok...then it was time for it to die
but i would like to see the 1st season again for sure :up:
I used to have one of the old DrirecTivos and i loved it. how are the new ones? do they have all the Tivo Premier ability like Netflix and ect or are they striped down versions?
I have an LG TV with a magic wand remote that requires two button presses to change inputs. Programming the THR22 remote will bring up the input source screen but I have no way of hitting "enter" to then select the input.
This THR22 is located behind a wall, so getting another universal remote would require getting an RF remote and I'm not interested in spending that type of money for this setup. It's an outside TV that we don't use that often.
Is there a solution for this issue?
When I turned on my Premiere XL4 this morning the black and gray cable card screen was displayed. it said "Firmware update failed". It would not respond to remote commands at all. I check my regular 2 tuner Premiere in my den and it was the same. I pulled the plug on both and they rebooted. After they came to the menus both units just keep flashing back and forth between the menus and cablecard screens. The update progress was increasing so I just let them run. After about 20 minutes the menus came back and everything worked fine. Anyone else have a firmware update? I have Time Warner Cable in Central NY.
I am using Tivo Premiere/Streambaby for streaming MP4 files.
Most of the time it works fine, however, I am noticing a slowdown with some of my larger sized MP4 videos. I try to use handbrake but sometimes it will not convert the entire video file.
So I purchased Aimersoft Video Converter to convert larger MKV files to MP4 with the standard Aimersoft settings.
While it does work, I am noticing the video playback just stops and then I have to press the play button every few seconds to get the video to keep playing.
Are there any suggestions for settings I should change which would avoid the pause when streaming MP4 video files?
Please help. Thanks.
I love my TiVo, I always rave on about how great it is that it will record something if I haven't seen ads advertising it is on (if its in my todo list obviously) except, I'm getting sick and tired as to why it has not recorded the last 2 episodes of a season I have always had it set to record. But it has no problem recording other shows. Why does TiVo do this? It's rather frustrating and annoying!
P.s. there have been other occasions where this randomly happens too
