Tivo HD 3, motherboard replacement

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 07/20/2013 - 13:34
I have a spare tivo hd3 i bought dirt cheap for parts. If I replace the motherboard with the other one will it register on my lifetime service as a different tivo?

tivo series 3hd has no video

We read the posts and went with suggestions. So we replaced the power supply ~ that wasn't the problem. The fan worked, so that wasn't the problem. We finally figured out it was the HDMI port. How can we replace that? Do we have to un-soder it from another motherboard and re-soder it to ours? Can that be done without damaging the m/board?

Lots of Premium Channel shows to watch over the next few weeks

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 07/19/2013 - 22:48
I watch several premium TV shows, but since I'm cheap, I only subscribe to the Premium channels a few months per year. Called D* tonight to see if they had any specials and scored all 4 movie channels (HBO, SHO, MAX, STARZ) for $25 per month for the next 3 months.

Currently downloading via VOD the following most recent seasons:

Game of Thrones
Nurse Jackie
Veep
Hunted
Banshee
Spartacus: Gods of the Arena
Spartacus: Vengeance
Spartacus: War of the Damned
Da Vinci's Demons

Also, the first three episodes of Dexter and the first episode of The Newsroom (and set up my series recordings for the rest of them).

I should be good until January or February when I do it again.

Man, I love Video On Demand.

Tivo without CableCard?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 07/19/2013 - 20:30
So if the FCC has their way then CableCards will be terminated or powered off? When is this suppose to occur, and how do we return to our roots of just a Coax connection of 100 and below. Most of the signals are switching to Switched Digital and more analog will follow very soon. So this leaves the average TiVo with in a sense a Pandora's Box. We can embrace the digital needs and use Ondemand as primary source with OTA or giveup on our devices and plug our new HDMI machines into LCD's, HD, or 3DTV/Plasma things. Whichever you choose the counter is ticking down, and what will happen with Tivo will contracts expire because the need to use the service has been reduced?

what's your take and what will you do?

For us, we are already primarily using HuluPlus, Youtube, and Plex. Regardless of this decision January 2014 we are pulling the plug on our cable because we just don't use it as much as before. Besides the networks continue to cancel and pull shows there really is no need to watch broadcast for us. So why the delay for us, we are in legal binding contract with our apartment. Hey you can add service to increase your rent that's called an addendum but nope your damned if your try to decrease your rent.. So this January we will remove that add-on promptly. It's stupid really $75 for cable, 2.95 for the CableCard for Tivo / RR / Phone separately from Brighthouse. It really sucked we were unable to get a bundle bill with the cable.. LONG STORY. Don't want to go there.

Which Tivo for coaching? help please.

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 07/19/2013 - 19:57
Hi,

I have an option of getting a Tivo series 1 HDR112 unopened and not activated for $20 or a Tivo series 2 with a life time subscription for $40.

I want to use for coaching, just to setup a 30 sec delay coming from an JVC Everio HD camcorder to a TV. I know the stream will not be in HD and that is fine.

Which one do you recommend I get for the best setup? I don't have any experience in doing this and was hoping someone on the forums can help. Since I have heard so much about it.

Thanks!

Why Apple’s Ad Skipping Service is a Dumb Idea

Zatz Not Funny! - Fri, 07/19/2013 - 11:32

Have you heard? Apple wants to get into the TV business. And the latest? The company supposedly wants to create a premium service that allows users to skip commercials. But wait, there’s more! Apple apparently thinks it can set up a revenue-sharing system that will pay programmers for the ads that viewers skip. According to former [...]

Project Runway Season 12 - all season thread - spoilers to date!

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 07/19/2013 - 10:54
Yes, it's another dreaded Project Runway all-season thread. :p

Once again, a modest proposal: if you are the person starting the conversation about the current week's episode, it really really really helps the people who are watching 'behind' if you put the OAD and episode title in the post title field. That gives a nice, bold delineation showing that the episode has aired.

And now --

LOTS of changes this season.
  • a WHITE runway! hooray!
  • viewers vote to bring back a designer from a previous season
  • designers manage their own budget
  • Tim Gunn gets to put his two cents in during the judges' deliberations
  • Tim has one big SAVE he can pull out during the season
  • judges get to see the clothes close-up after the runway show is over
  • viewers can vote along with the runway show live and the like/dislikes show on screen during some of the shots at the end of the episode

Did you watch the episode yet? Discuss!

No real surprises, except WE are the MVP next week. Blah. I wonder if this was planned all along or a reaction to Elissa winning the first three? My gut tells me it was because of Elissa, and if that's the case, it means that the producers didn't think the MVP through when they installed it.

Any bets that Aaryn is the MVP choice to go up on the block, and that she doesn't go home? (assuming she's not put on the block by Jud.)

Camp - anyone watching? *Full season thread and spoilers*

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 07/19/2013 - 07:14
After two episodes, I'm just not sure about this show...

I hadn't heard anything about it but I have a Wishlist set to record "Pilot" episodes so it grabbed it. Then the first ep was so-so (there were no "WOW THIS IS AWESOME" moments) but it was kinda cute so I set a true SP in case it got better.

I swear my recording was at 8, but the language and situations were definitely not family-friendly 8pm materials.

It's a cute premise, but are there even really semi-rustic camps like that? For families? I would think it would be for kids only...? And it didn't seem to have a proportionate amount of parents to kids, and there were kids just being dropped off...? So it feels like they have a token small group of parents there for the sole purpose of interacting with the camp owner lady and talking about sex and alcohol. Though there's lots of talk about sex and alcohol amongst the kids, too.

The second ep didn't really draw me in much, either. There's nothing inherently wrong...it just seems kinda blah.

There was a quick mention of Harbor Springs which caught my ear--it's a Michigan city--so it got me wondering where this camp was supposedly located. I either missed any reference to it or it wasn't mentioned. But the city reference was made as a "He took his girlfriend there on an expensive vacation" -- which, yes it's a resorty town, but I can't see out-of-state people talking to friends about it like it was as well-known as Vegas or Miami. So I googled to see where it was supposed to be and couldn't find much...but it's filmed in Australia?!

Anyhow. I'm not sure if I'll keep watching. As it is, it's a background show.

Anyone else watching?

Moca Problems with Motorola Modem

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 07/18/2013 - 13:35
Just wondering if anyone is having problems with their internet dropping when using the Moca boxes.

I have the following: Cable company has a split at the box, one side internet, one side TV. It passes through the POE filter, then routes through one moca, then to my Motorola S6120 modem. Modem ties into the moca, and continues on to a router and switch.

Frequently my modem reboots with the following message:
Cable Modem Reboot due to T4 timeout

The fun part is the time stamp on the modem is about 2 hours and 43 minutes different than the actual time, so coming the logs takes a little creativity. I had my provider come out and tell me all is fine and T3 and T4 drops are common.

I work from home so every time the modem wonks out, I have to redo my VPN connection for work and reboot my laptop. Lots of fun there.

So, anyone know of issues with moca damaging the cable signal or something? I really don't like having the moca as the first device.

I swear, Annie Walker has to be the worst spy ever. She does the exact opposite of what she's told to do half the time. She ignores the chain of command when she feels like it. She conducts her own missions seemingly whenever she wants to. Apparently, this season she can take spur of the moment vacations too. She's the hero of the show so everything works out in the end but she should have been fired for insubordination and being an all around being a crappy employee long ago. And she got Augie shot!

Seems like all the boats are having problems this season!

Good of the Hilstrands to loan Wild Bill that hydro fluid. Hard to imagine getting repairs and parts that far away from help!

I'm still surprised that something shown in the previews a couple weeks ago has not been seen yet. Perhaps they're saving it for the finale or something.

The disclaimer was there again, but no real mention of any of the racist stuff. Perhaps it's going to be there for the rest of the season.

Any doubts now that Elissa is winning MVP every week? Even the house guests seem to be resigned to the fact. Great idea, terrible execution. CBS HAD to know it was going to turn out that way, didn't they?

While I'm not a fan of Elissa, I'll give her kudos for standing her ground and trying to play her game and putting Spencer up. While game play wise, Amanda was right, I want to see Spencer go.

I felt bad for Kaitlyn. She did what she had to do, but I understand how hard it is to get rid of someone you're close to. At least there really was some closeness there.

I knew Helen was using crocodile tears with the guys to try and get info from them. For using "waterworks" there sure was no real tears. I could see through that a mile away. But I'm smarter than either of those guys.

Glad to see Jeremy going. He's a self absorbed blow hard (or at least he plays one on TV). Still wish it was Aaryn, but I'm fine with either of them going.

On Helen. I guess when you're in the house, or the jungle or where ever you are in these games, you see things differently, but I STILL don't get why people take things so personally when they are lied to. It's a game, and that's part of it. Why would I tell my "enemy" anything truthful, or, expect them to tell me the truth? Why get upset when they lie to you? If I was playing, I'd take EVERYTHING people tell me with a grain of salt, even allies. I'd play my own game and "use" people when I need to. And I'd play the game knowing full well that others probably don't believe me either.

Any chance Jeremy can save himself? The only way I see it happening is if Aaryn says something SO vile to Helen's face that she just has to go. I don't see it happening though.

The Arrangement
Jessica was married to a dude.
Donna.
Having been (or currently being) married has nothing to do with someone coming out. Neither do previous heterosexual relationships.
If it's going to happen, I foresee Jessica or maybe Louis.
btw i'm watching suits in ustv.cc
