There don't seem to be episode threads much this season, so thought with the new year I'd start a thread for the rest of the second season.
Episode 10 "Power"
Wow, Victoria is willing to let Emily back in?
I love Nolan. His Remington Steele comment cracked me up.
Jack is just too dumb to live. He and Declan don't have a brain between them.
I'm a bit lost on who the woman is feeding Daniel info. Is she from 'the initiative'? What's her goal?
I had TiVo years ago with DirecTV and really miss it.
I have Uverse now but am just starting to consider switching to TiVo and Xfinity but I have a few questions:
1. I have 3 TVs. If I have TiVo on one and Xfinity boxes on the other two how will that work?
2. I read in an Amazon review of the Premium TiVo that there is a lot of TiVo generated advertising. Is that the case and is it a problem?
3. Does the new TiVo work as well as the old DirecTV TiVo's as far as Wish List and scheduling programs? Anything new that will blow me away.
4. With Uverse they advertise recording 4 HD shows at the same time. Turns out it all depends on the copper length to your house. I get 2 HD and one SD stream. Are there any similar gotcha's with Xfininty?
5. I hear rumors of a 6 tuner TiVo. Sill Xfinity support that?
Any other thoughts or suggestions regarding switching from Uverse to Xfinity and TiVo?
This is my first time posting to the forums and this seems like a good place to start. This is my first TiVo issue after having 2 boxes. The past few weeks ago, we experienced an ice storm and when they were repairing the power lines it made my power flicker like crazy. Since this issue my TiVo informed me it needed me to download program info. This is when the so3 error occurred. A few days ago I was messing around with my surge protector and changed my coaxials. Now. The TiVo won't even show basic channels. I even plugged up the coax to the tv and it appears to be working fine. Here is a list of things I have done. Hard and soft reset, completed guided setup, called cable company and requested signal reboot. The TiVo is the hundred dollar model from bestbuy and I have a western digital 1tb, expandable hd. The next attempt I am going to try is a complete factory reset. Anyone got some suggestions?
Ps. I have also tried the pause 57 trick, and all it did was put me thru guided setup

Connect an old (very old television) with AV cables to BOTH a Tivo Premiere and a Roku??
The Tivo's been working fine since last Fall.
I found a Roku on Craigslist for a good price and thought I'd try hooking it up; but, there is the whole cable limitation issue.
Anyone got any ideas?? Kind of hard to do a Google search when I don't know what I'm looking for :p
I've gotten more into downloaded videos, from Hulu, Netflix, and Amazon. I've been having some problems with Amazon, but even when it works, it takes awhile to download. But Hulu and Netflix stream down with no problem. If I download a torrent, its slower than Netflix or Hulu. What governs download speeds?
If I replace the power supply and hard drive in my Tivo HD will I mess up my Lifetime Service contract?
Because 1080 isn’t a big enough number, Stream TV Networks wants to go 2160. Ultra-D 2160p, that is. The proposed new format is higher resolution than HD, but also provides a 3D video effect sans the glasses. According to Stream TV, the technology uses a multi-layer optical system (Um?), and is based on proprietary hardware, [...]
What happens if you add duplicates on SPs - is it smart enough to only record it once - or does it record two?
MONDAY – Bunheads (Season Premiere) – ABC Family – 9PM While the studio closed down at the end of last season, the dreams of our favorite dancers are not shattered. We can’t wait to see how the whole gang gets back together. TUESDAY – Cougar Town (Season Premiere) – TBS – 9PM ABC dropped the show and thankfully TBS picked it up. Courtney Cox is back and hotter than ever in one of the quirkiest comedies of this decade. The concept of the show is hanging on a Continue Reading
Haven given up on the Gypsy lifestyle and once again returned to home ownership, I’ve been on the lookout for ways to geekify our new pad. And while CES is inundated with health gadgets, I’m more interested in home automation… perhaps sleeker and simpler than existing Insteon or Zigee solutions. Of course, that’s how I [...]
I used code 0238 to program my Tivo remote for Westinghouse CW50T9XW 50-inch LCD HDTV (on sale last Black Friday).
The good news is the remote works for all the buttons that should work: power, volume, mute, etc.
The bad news is some buttons on remote have "dual-action" on Tivo and on the TV.
For example, FF starts fast forward in Tivo, but also kicks TV into setup. Number "2" works for the Tivo as intended, but also drops me into input selection on the TV. 30-second skip button toggles through screen fit modes on the TV (Standard/Fill/Overscan).
I found a few references to this, e.g. www fixya com support t15315354-westinghouse_tv_goes_setup_when_tivo but suggestions there did not work.
I would prefer to continue using the Tivo remote. Is it possible without the "side effects"?
Sharp is coming out with a long line of products in 2013, but perhaps most interesting in the group is a new series of 4K, Ultra HD TVs set to launch this summer. Using what Sharp calls a “Cognitive Creation Image Processor”, the new TVs will trick your eyes into thinking objects are three-dimensional. As [...]
Since the upgrade a few months ago the Suggestion Folder that used to be at the bottom of the listings above the "Recently Deleted" has disappeared.
The suggested programs have not though, but they can only be found by "un-grouping" the list.
Will there be a fix for this soon???
I own two Tivo 45 hr Premiere 2 tuners. I upgraded the hard drive of my first Premiere purchased in May 2010 to expand my recording capacity. My second Tivo Premiere I purchased in April 2012 and I have not upgraded.
The problem I experienced recently is using Netflix streaming on my May 2010 Premiere. Netflix seems to stutter at times and audio and video cut out periodically throughout a 1 hr show. If I stream from my April 2012 Premiere, I experience none of these issues. Both are hard-wired with gig Ethernet.
That brings me to my question: is there a hardware difference in Premieres manufactured about 2 years apart? In general, the newer Premiere seems zippier using menus, etc.
Archer premieres Jan 17 at 10p only on FX.
Roku, a cord cutter favorite for over-the-top video streaming that’s now approaching 5 million units moved, is trumpeting the imminent arrival of Time Warner Cable onto their platform here at CES. The app, scheduled to drop this first quarter of 2013 and available to current Roku models, will bring 300 channels of cable to TWC subscribers. [...]
I don't need help, but thought I'd post this so that anyone facing this issue in the future can find my solution easily.
I have had a TiVo HD out in our pool house for several years. When we built the house we had structured wiring put in, but something is wrong with the ethernet cable out to the pool house over its buried run of more than 100 feet. So this TiVo has been hooked though phone line only.
Due either to the length of the run or something also wrong with the buried coax, I had to install a cable amp just on this run several years ago, otherwise the signal is too weak for the TiVo to tune it. The amp has worked perfectly.
I recently decided to try to get this TiVo connected to the network. A wireless N adapter didn't work - idevices pick up WiFi signal out there but it must be too weak to get a consistent signal. Then I found out about MoCa, which had escaped me all these years - and I have a Fios router, so it is already enabled at the head end.
Unfortunatly MoCa signals won't pass through a cable amp. Through lots of googling I found the solution. Buy two satellite TV "diplexers" - they look like splitters but instead of splitting the entire stream they divide it by frequency - and three short lengths of coax. The "antenna" output goes to and through the amp, then back in to the antenna hookup on the second diplexer. The "satellite" output goes directly to the "satellite" input of the second diplexer.
Voila, the cable signal goes through the "antenna" path, the MoCa signals pass through the "satellite" path and the they get recombined. Add a MoCa adapter at the Tivo, and it all works perfectly. If only I'd figured this out years ago.
My wife got me to watch the 1st episode of Downton Abbey Season 3 last night (2 hr ep).
I had not watched a single episode previously, so Leigh provided the backstory for each of characters during the course of the episode. Having heard there were LOTS of characters and story lines, I was concerned I could never simply jump-into Season 3 and have half a clue.
About 1/4 way in to Episode 1, I was on board with a pretty good handle on the characters. Overall I enjoyed the episode and will probably tag along with my wife through Season 3.
I did have to ask if this was kind of like Fiddler on the Roof remake with the 3 daughters and their "papa" stuck in his tradition, not initially liking their choice of mates, but willing to bend for his daughters...
I think this show could be made PERFECT with the addition of some Ninjas, Zombies, threat of Nuclear Attack, or Jack Bauer/Chloe setting up a perimeter. ;)
