New LG/Entone Retail Streamer on the Way

Zatz Not Funny! - Thu, 07/25/2013 - 15:08

Lost in the Chromecast news yesterday was an announcement from LG and Entone on a new media streamer coming to retail. In itself, the streamer isn’t all that exciting. But pair the box with Entone’s 8-tuner gateway and you have a very interesting proposition for retail or the ISP channel. To start, the streamer is [...]

Court sides with Dish Re: Commercial Skipping

In other news, the 9th Circuit sided with Dish in Fox's lawsuit against them regarding the Hopper's channel-skipping feature.


Doesn't impact Tivo directly right now, but should they one day decide that trying to be cozy with content partners won't pay the bills, they have some legal leverage to do the same.

Tivo stream and fios

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 07/24/2013 - 22:12

For those of you with FIOS service...I am in the process of converting from Xfinity to FIOS - will have FIOS installed next week. I have four TIVO devices - a TIVO Premiere 4, a TIVO Premiere, a TIVO 3 HD, and a TIVO Mini. I will not have any FIOS boxes. I am debating the value of also obtaining a TIVO stream. Do the various FIOS apps allow you to stream/record to IPADs and other mobile devices and have a good selection of shows and movies? Or would a TIVO stream give me a lot more options and flexibility?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts....

There were so many! But I was just wondering what everyone's favorites were.

Go to this link and there's a list.


There are so many, but I think this'd be my top five:

1. Lennie Briscoe. One of my favorite characters on TV period.
2. Robert Goren (CI) Love his mental instability.
3. Munch (SVU): He makes me laugh
4. Zach Nichols (CI) Weird choice, but he really grew on me in his one season.
5. This one's a toss up. I loved Alex Eames, but I also enjoyed Captain Danny Ross (CI)

(List however many you like.)

Top Chef Masters: Does this show make you hungry?

TiVo Blog - Wed, 07/24/2013 - 14:22
There are plenty of food-focused shows on T.V. these days. Some teach you how to cook; others bring you to restaurants all over the world, while others show amateur professional chefs competing for top titles. One of the original, and still most popular, food challenge series’ is Top Chef on Bravo. A new season of Top Chef Masters premieres tonight at 10/9c. Celebrity chef and host Curtis Stone is back again, along with some special guest judges including, Busy Philipps, Kathie Lee Gifford, Lindsey Price and Ali Larter. The twist Continue Reading

In a recent episode radio communications between officers played a central role. Obviously noone involved with obtaining props for the show is an amateur radio operator.

In the show the cophouse base radio was repeatedly shown tuned to the 20-meter ham band which is exclusively assigned to the amateur radio service in the US not public service. And, even if they had FCC special permission to use it, it is not particularly effective for local communications.

And finally, one of the detectives used a handheld radio to communicate with the base radio but handheld units are not manufactured for this band.

Let the "so whats" begin. ;)

Tuning adapter question

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 07/24/2013 - 09:32
I have two Motorola tuning adapters and both exhibit the same behavior, so I believe I can rule out a hardware issue. That said, I'm wondering if anyone else is experiencing the following:

Every time my cable company experiences an outage or my power goes out, my tuning adapters go out of sync with a flashing amber light and has caused me to miss recordings especially if I'm traveling. No matter how long I leave them, they will never go back in sync unless I power cycle them and this usually solves the issue. There are times however, where multiple power cycles are necessary to get them back in sync. My cable company (Bright House) seems clueless as to why this is happening and can't seem to produce an answer.

Yet another frustrating issue with tuning adapters and SDV...

Series 2 with DTA - TiVo scrambling video

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 07/24/2013 - 03:10
I have an old Series 2 (AT&TiVo) that is now connected to a DTA. I set up the DTA over 6 months ago, and everything has been working fine.

But today, after maybe a week of not watching this TV, I turn it on and find that all of the video looks scrambled. This is on every channel. The TiVo menus look fine, only the channel video is scrambled. I assumed a problem with the DTA and power-cycled it.

However, that didn't fix it, so I hit Standby on the TiVo, which enables RF passthrough so I can see the DTA output directly on the TV. Low and behold, the video looks just fine. All of the channels look good.

But when I go back to the TiVo, all the video is still scrambled. I restarted the TiVo, which didn't help at all. Then I re-ran Guided setup to repeat the cable box setup. That didn't help either, as all through Guided setup the video was scrambled still.

How can the TiVo be scrambling what appears to be a perfectly good video signal? Could it be a hardware failure? I wasn't able to find any similar reports on the forum.

Thanks for any help.

Herbal Remedies For Actinic Keratosis

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 07/24/2013 - 01:27
What is Actinic Keratosis?
Actinic Keratosis is a skin disorder in which involves very small, elevated rough and reddish bumps on the skin when a person has had a lot of sun exposure lately. This condition is common and most apparent in those with fair complexion and neat skin. The severe form of this disease can lead to skin cancer but at initial stages this disorder is less harmful but causes major discomfort. The bumps and lesions formed on the skin due to Actinic Keratosis are reddish in color and their texture is quite rough.
How is it caused?
Actinic Keratosis is caused due to several reasons amongst them all the major reason is excessive exposure to sun. People having fair skin are more prone to this disorder and those with blue or green eyes or even blond or red hair. Those who have had a kidney transplant in the past are also at a higher risk of suffering from this disorder. Medicines that usually suppress the immune system can also be a major cause of origination of Actinic Keratosis. Not just this severe sunburns and old age is also an eminent factor that leads to this skin disorder so one has to be very careful especially those with very fair complexion.

v52 Seattle Comcast - missing only a few channels

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 07/23/2013 - 23:41
I have a Premiere on 1 tv and a Series 3 on another tv - two separate rooms.

All of a sudden today, both are choking on a small handful of channels. The rest seem to be fine.

Anyone in Seattle, with Comcast have any issues with 104, 109, 112 or 114? (4, 9, 12 and 14 are fine) I'm in Pioneer Square.

Comcast can't find anything so they are sending someone out on Thursday but I can't believe the fix is here. It's not critical. I'm not missing any content, I just think it's weird.

Hard drive swap questions

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 07/23/2013 - 23:40
So it looks like one of my TiVo HDs hard drive is dying. Got three code 7s in the S.M.A.R.T. test. It's a 1TB drive that was swapped into it a few years ago (actually, I think I got it on EBay already upgraded). I have some other smaller drives lying around, so I'm wondering the following...

1. If I use a hard drive cloning dock, can I copy the dying HDD to a new one (preserving recorded shows, system settings, account info, etc.)?

2. Can I copy to a smaller HDD (e.g. 500GB) if I delete enough shows from the 1TB drive before the copy?

3. Will copying from the bad drive potentially write bad data to the new drive? Or is it more likely a hardware issue causing the code 7s?

I'm pretty computer savvy, so I could also do a traditional copy/swap. I just read that the cloning docs work faster. I also picked up another TiVo HD off Craigslist for $25. So if all else fails I can start fresh. Although I'd rather not lose all my shows (or have to TTG 1TB worth of content).

Old Series 1

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 07/23/2013 - 16:21
Thought I might post what I did with my two old Tivo's. I have a series 1 Sony and also a Philips 112. The Sony 's hard drive started acting up after just 13 years. Haha. It has a lifetime subscription and I use it in my basement work out room. So thought about weekknees but wasn't sure the 100 bucks was worth keeping it going. So I had the Philips sitting in a closet for quite a few years. I know the capacity is low but it's not that important. So I pulled the hard drive out of both of them and installed the Phillips in the Sony. Booted right up and once I did the guide set up the lifetime subscription is working and no more skipping and audio screw ups.
