Mini - why need network connection

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 05/24/2013 - 08:48
So, last night the mini was having some issues. Network error, V112 I think, maybe it was V121.. couldn't connect to host, couldn't get live tv, couldn't stream from primary XL4, etc..

So, I thought maybe she needs a reboot. When I went over to the mini, I noticed that the physical NETWORK cable was unplugged. So I thought, duh, that makes sense, I wonder how/when that happened.

Anyway, I plugged the network cable back in, nothing got better. Tried to connect to TIVO, check network connection - nothing. It would just time out and sometimes if froze, so I rebooted. again.

then I rebooted the ENTIRE network all the way to the modem, modem, routers, homeplug, everything - except the XL4.

So, the XL4 was now doing some update which took well over an HOUR to load. So, I went to bed..but, the mini with the now PLUGGED IN NETWORK CABLE the Ethernet lights on the BACK on the mini were blinking, the yellow status and green activity lights were blinking...but it had never done that before.

So, either A) the lights are now activated due to some firmware/software update or B) the CABLE HAS NEVER BEEN PLUGGED IN AFTER SETUP???!!!

Either way, I can guarantee you that the LIGHTS on the back were never on or flashing since I am VERY sensitive to light in the room in in an INSTANT could see the lights filling up the room...so

So, I'm LEANING towards the fact that the network cable has not been plugged in for over TWO months since setting up the mini the first time?

Is that possible? Will it just work totally fine with MOCA and without NETWORK? It sure seems to..

and the end of the story: I have now unplugged the network cable that connects the mini to the home network and BOOM the mini works fine now, streams live tv and can stream stored content on the primary XL4 just fine - so no network needed?

I plan to buy a TiVo Premiere 4 (or XL4) for use with a Linksys, "Wireless-N Gaming and Video Adapter", WET610N. This model is said to be compatible with an, "Ethernet-enabled DVR". Is the Linksys WET610N compatible with the TiVo Premiere series?

Summer Shows 2013

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 05/24/2013 - 07:44
Over the last few years, I've always managed to find stuff that interested me during the summer. Looking at this year's crop of shows, it looks like I'll be watching a lot of baseball, and movies. Not a whole lot interests me, unless you're into crime dramas, which I'm not.


BTW, was looking at my SPs and was wondering if anyone knew if these shows were coming back:

Political Animals (not great, but had an interesting cast)
Covert Affairs (I need a little Piper :) )

Why Does Tivo Take So Long To Boot Up?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 05/24/2013 - 04:46
Last night another hiccup from the electric company. Power was down for a few seconds. Tivo came back but it took about seven minutes for recording to resume (seven minutes including the idiotic cartoon). PCs, smartphones, tablets all can boot in about a minute (or less). Tivo has always taken a long time. Why? Tivo has been on the market for about 13 years. You'd think this is something they could have solved by now.

Yes, I know about UPS. Still, there's no reason why a reboot should take seven minutes. And don't add insult to injury with a Tivo cartoon and a THX cartoom (much as I like George Lucas, I don't need the cartoon).

MOCA Filter cause SDV/Tunning issues

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 05/23/2013 - 20:50
I could not find any help by searching...

I had MOCA set up and working perfectly with a Tivo Premiere 4 and the Tivo Mini. I decided to install a POE Filter but as soon as I did I started having problems with the Tivo. I installed the POE Filter at the OnQ box in my closet where the incoming coax goes to splitter. When I installed the filter... my internet and MOCA along with my tv's that have just basic cable; they were all working.

My issue is now what appears to be my tuning adapter. I can access some channels on my Tivo but not you premium network channels, like HBO & USA. When I disconnect the filter, these channels start right away.

What am I missing?

Schedule problems after new update

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 05/23/2013 - 17:12
Following the update this week I'm having a weird problem. I have a Season Pass for Fast Money every night at 5 p.m. Set for Record New. It only has a generic program description, but always shows up in the listings as NEW.

It has not recorded the last two days. I checked the History and it shows it with the NEW flag, but was not recorded since it was a Duplicate.

When I checked the upcoming episodes it only shows today, not any of the episodes shown in the Guide for the next 10 days.

WD low power spinup utility

Looking at a post on wdidle3, I found a link to a related western digital utility that enables low power spinup and super low power spinup. I was wondering if anyone had used these on their tivo drives?

So our tuning adapter crapped out last night and this didn't record fully. I guess I can watch on ABC.com...

How was it? :)

Almost Human: Anybody else on board?

As a huge fan of Fringe, I have to say this is the show I am looking forward to the most. Hopefully, it is well done and has a decent audience and it can tell the story the creators want to tell.

Here is the trailer:


shark tank 5 17 13

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 05/23/2013 - 09:10
i hope right date. it's the grilled cheese one

i love how those guys put the sharks in their place. we have over 1 mill in sales so there (insert stickout tongue smiley).

the dog food...well...i was impressed the kid knew his numbers

the dating site girl...i think the owner being available is brilliant..guys will pay for the chance to date her lol. but i sure wouldnt ever want to invest in a dating site. and what was that..1000 for 3 dates...craziness. and 100 per month i guess keeps out the riff raff..or at least the poor ones. i think we really missed a lot here due to the edit

the language thing was also pretty interesting, i had no idea mark was so diversified. i'm assuming the market for this kind of thing is pretty good so hope it does well.

There were certainly some interesting characters and offerings! From beaver tail to alligator to bear to crickets.

I loved the 'Mad & cheese with a twist."
What's the twist?
Breast milk.
Large spray of yellow from Ramsay's mouth!! :eek:

Deadliest Catch - OAD 5/21/2013

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 05/23/2013 - 07:29
Wow! No thread? What happened?

Some points...

Elliot gets screwed by Junior. I've no sympathy for Elliot, but that's TWO people Junior has pissed off this season! I'm not sure if he realized that when the show aired (if not before), they would know what he's done!

Edgar has a real decision to make. He has no choice but to fire Jake. There's no doubt that Jake lost it and threw the first punch. However, he's been with the Hansens forever and the job offer would almost certainly be withdrawn when it becomes known that he has a temper! Of course, they're keeping us waiting to know the outcome.
