Quote: Created by regular Doctor Who scribe Chris Chibnall, the show tracks a pair of cops, played by David Tennant and Olivia Colman, as they attempt to solve the murder of an 11-year-old boy and, along the way, uncover a multitude of sins in the titular seaside town. Starts August 7 on BBC America.

I watched this via magical means a while ago and found it be very very good. Fantastic acting by David Tennant.

Check it out.

'HBO Go,' yes; 'Showtime Anywhere,' no on TW

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 06/25/2013 - 10:55
I love HBO Go, which allows you to watch all the previous seasons of a show so you can fully appreciate the new episodes. I only recently got HBO after many years and I used it to catch up on "Game of Thrones," "The Newsroom," "Boardwalk Empire," "Girls" and "Veep."

I likewise recently got Showtime after many years, but it's been much harder to catch up on "Dexter," "The Borgias," and "Shameless. I have to buy the episodes or wait for a marathon to record them. pia.
I still haven't seen the first season of "Homeland."

Time Warner provides HBO Go, but not Showtime Anywhere, does anyone have an idea why this is?

Vudu app?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 06/25/2013 - 05:08
Hello

I recently purchased a Tivo Premier XL4 and am disappointed that there is no Vudu application. While I'm happy netflix and amazon are there, I'd really like to see Vudu. Now I need to switch to another device to access Vudu and would just love for my Tivo to give me all of my media right from that box.

Any idea when this will be added?

Thanks,
Jerry

PC sleep mode and Tivo server

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 06/24/2013 - 23:24
I have a Desktop PC that has archived shows with a wired connection to my Tivo Premiere XL. I have the PC set to go into sleep mode after a while (saving the Earth -you're welcome) which should be fine. I wiggle a wireless mouse near my TV in the other room, and the PC wakes up.
I'm using Tivo desktop and for some reason, the woken computer doesn't show up on the Tivo "Now PLaying" screen unless I manually go to my PC and click "pause server", and then re-start it. Then it shows up instantly. But I'm curious if there's any way to not have to restart the Tivo server after sleep mode on the PC for it to show up in my Now Playing list.

Thoughts? Comments? Insults?
BTW - I've tried alternatives, and Tivo Desktop is the best software for me - so kmttg is not a solution.

Xfinity VOD Freezes after 3-5 seconds

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 06/24/2013 - 22:45
We have a Tivo Premier XL and our market has Comcast Ondemand but we've never used it before. What happens is when we go to watch any VOD from Ondemand, it shows the full 30 minutes but after a few second it just freezes. Everything else works fine and we have premium channels like HBO working no problems.

Any suggestions on what this could be?

Just finished watching it. I thought it was great summer fare! Looking forward to more of this.

So what did they know a year ago? Anxious to find out.

TiVo Streaming Music Control Via Mobile

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 06/24/2013 - 22:05
OK, I'll tell you what I'm looking for and you tell me if something like this exists or is possible:

My AV receiver (that the TiVo Series 3 is connected to) is also connected to my outdoor speakers for my back patio. When I want to listen to music, currently I go in the house and start the music (TiVo streaming music off my desktop) and then go back outside. If I want to change the album/playlist, I have to go back inside and change it.

I would like to be able to control it from my phone outside. It would be great to be able to browse my music library and select what's playing next. Right now the best I could do would be to stream music via Youtube and have my phone paired to that, but the quality isn't good and it doesn't have all my music.

Is there anything like this out there?

Issue with TiVo HD and Netflix

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 06/24/2013 - 22:02
Is anyone else having any issues with Netflix on TiVoHD systems? I get the "Please Wait" gray screen for about 5 minutes and then it goes back to my main screen. It does it regardless of where I select Netflix, either from Now Playing or Video on Demand, both options go gray background back to main screen.

Thinking of purchasing Videoredo Plus

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 06/24/2013 - 21:07
If I purchase it and my computer's hard drive gets fried, am I out the $50 it cost me? Or can I redownload it for free? Are there any free equivalents to Videoredo Plus? I just need something simple that will let me manually remove commercials and transfer back to Tivo while keeping the closed captions.

Series 3 Tivo...Best Tivo ever?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 06/24/2013 - 19:42
I have had the XL4 for 5 days now. I like the new interface and the four tuners.
I previously had a series 3, which has been moved to the bedroom. I miss it in my main tv room.
My question is, is the series 3 the best TiVo ever? I love the program titles (and the time) on the front display. It was really a good device, especially given when it was released.
What do you guys think?

Naked and Afraid "The Jungle Curse" OAD 6-23-2013

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 06/24/2013 - 18:37
Series premier, but listed as episode 4.

I dunno, it was worth watching but I'm not sure how it'll keep interest week to week. We learned years ago on Survivor that starving people are boring and the fact that they could show us 21 days in an hour show sort of points that out. The guy lost 45 pounds and the girl 20-something, they need to put these people down in a spot with more accessible food!

There were a couple humorous moments. I'll give it another week.

Also, there's an uncensored version of it showing Sunday night right before the second ep airs.

Recording Wrong Channel

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 06/24/2013 - 18:32
Series 2 Tivo Connected To Comcast Motorola Dct 2000 Box Using Serial Cable.

Intermittent Problem (50% Of The Time). Wrong Channel Is Recorded. When I Play The Recorded Program I Can See The Correct Channel # And Then It Jumps Usually To A Lower Number. Same Thing Sometimes Happens When I Use My Tivo Remote. Press 42, It Goes To 42 Then Jumps To 40.

Comcast Suggested Trying IR Blaster, But I'd Rather Use Serial Cable.

Any Suggestions? Thx...

TiVo Series 3 audio goes out

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 06/24/2013 - 18:27
I have the first gen series 3, and until about the last couple of months it has been working flawlessly. After about 20 minutes watching a recorded program the sound will completely drop out. If I hit the remote 'play' it will come back on, but only for about 30 minutes or so. Could this have anything to do with the HDMI connection?

Thanks in advance,
Mike

Telling it to record 2nd copy makes first not record?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 06/24/2013 - 17:56
I've been having lots of problems getting clean recordings with the 20.3 update and the old firmware in my scientific atlanta cable card, so I went into the upcoming episodes of a season pass and told it to record a 2nd copy of the show it already had scheduled to record earlier.

When I went back to check upcoming again, it had cancelled the 1st showing.

Is it supposed to work this way? At least when I went back into the 1st one and said "Hey you! Record this", it finally shows both of them with check marks.

Thought it was an interesting show. Seemed a whole lot like The Mole in a lot of ways. Strangely though, there were quite a few people on twitter who thought they were actually killing the contestants.

Cloning 2Tb HDD for 2nd Tivo Series 3 TCD648250B

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 06/24/2013 - 11:11
I just purchased a WD 2Tb HDD on Ebay with a Tivo image for a TCD648250B Series 3 HD Tivo. It's supposed to be plug & Play for my Series 3 Tivo. Since I have four of these TCD648250B Tivo's, is it possible to clone this drive for use in my other Tivo's using blank 2Tb WD Drives? If so, what software do I have to use, or can I simply use a stand alone hard drive cloner? Thanks!

Crossing Lines 6/23/2013 Pilot

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 06/24/2013 - 08:25
..another crime drama procedural.
This time its an international team (the ICC) who captures cross boarder criminals.

To me, it was OK. I think I need to re-watch though. It was a 2 hour pilot but didn't have my full attention.

Can a budgling cap cause a hard drive to go bad?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 06/24/2013 - 08:17
I have a lifetime Series 3 (OLED) that started the dreaded reboot loop. I opened up the case and it indeed has a budging cap. Now, I had a spare 500GB WD drive that I put in it a few months ago. Before putting the S3 image on it and sticking it in the TiVo, I ran an extended test on it and all came back good. It has been working flawlessly for months until recently

I have another Series 3 (OLED) that had this reboot issue a while back as well. While it had a bulging cap & I had it fixed by a local shop, this didn't fix its reboot problem. Rather, a totally new hard drive is what ultimately fixed it.

While I will get the cap fixed either way on this other S3 as it can't hurt, I am just wondering if this bad cap can cause a hard drive to go bad over time. Or does one really have NOTHING to do with the other in terms of failure. I also realize that since this 500GB WD drive is not totally new, there is chance it could have just failed as well. Just curious on this.

Anyone having issues with the Mini and older Philips plasma TVs?

Picked up a mini..worked fine for a few days..

All of a sudden it's complaining about HDMI connection not permitted.. Maybe the mini received a software update, since I just activated it..

About to go buy the av breakout kit.. but this sucks!! anyone have similar issues?

UPDATE: Just unplugged TV and plugged back in. seems OK for now.. we'll see if it comes back!
