while i'm glad to see the son finally figured out the girl at the police station liked him, he sure is just one awkward guy to watch.

i guess people were pretty afraid of the irs now. they are much more friendly these days. the part about not paying someone until they are square didnt quite ring true though.

i wonder how long the guy that stole the 20K will be alive, mia wasnt very happy about that and will probably do that herself.

Bob's Burgers "Boyz 4 Now" - 4/28/13

This episode was freaking hilarious! I think most episodes are good, with nice gags and I like their family interaction, but both storylines in this one were golden.

"I'm no hero. I put my bra on one boob at a time."

Gene's 'Menstru-ant' was milk-out-the-nose funny. I couldn't believe I didn't see that coming since they were using the contents of Linda's purse. The tampon straw!

And I laughed each time they had Louise pull down her bunny ears in joy at Boo-Boo.

shark tank (luggage/jewelry/table)

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 04/30/2013 - 07:52
this was on my computer and even after looking at the ep guide online i cannot figure out when it was dated. it's marked s4 ep 22


love that guy that walked out without even hearing from mark. mark is usually the last to speak, everyone knows that

the luggage thing does seem like he would get clobbered with fedex and other companies. plus name recognition really needed to be built up. if he was already running in X airports for a year or so maybe that would prove the model

i'm not into jewelry but the sisters making something for 3 and selling for 100 is fantastic. no wonder jewelry stores have 50% off sales all the time! anyone that buys at retail apparently is crazy.



the geek table was very cool and if i was rich id have it!

2 tivo premiere units freeze weekly

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 04/30/2013 - 07:42
both of my premieres keep freezing weekly - requiring a restart. it happens between 9pm and 11pm. i have DTAs connected to the tivos. Both have software version 20.2.2

I read somewhere that I can try disconnecting the dtas from the units to see if that is the issue. Right now, I subscribe to the hd package. No pay channels. If i disconnect the dta, will the hd package remain? will I loose channels?

Any other suggestions as to why the tivo's keep freezing?

Thanks,
Anthony

Anyone?

Interesting that they brought Priscilla back into the picture, for a bit. I wonder if she'll appear yet again. That really was a terrible move for Aaron to abandon her in the first place and for such a dumb reason. Too bad.

It'll be interesting to see how the Matheson/Neville thing plays out next week.

I still wonder how the aviation fuel for the helicopters is still good? Does the militia have refineries and oil drilling working as well?

Activate then Clone or Clone then Activate?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 04/29/2013 - 22:36
Hi Guys,
So I am getting an TiVo Premiere and it should arrive any day now. Because I used a special offer, when it comes, I have to activate it via phone and not online (at least at first). Also, before I purchased it, I came here to tivocommunity and went ahead and bought a 2TB WD green drive. I was wondering if you guys wouldn't mind giving me some friendly advice on what order I should do everything in. My to do list are the following three things:

- transfer my programs from my tivo HD to the tivo premiere
- activate the TiVo Premiere
- Replace the 320GB hard drive inside the TiVo Premiere w/ the 2TB hard drive (clone it).

Which goes first, second, and third?

Also, I have a DVR expander connected to the TiVo HD at the moment. If you guys think I should transfer the programs from the TiVo HD first, would all of it fit on the 320GB stock drive w/in the TiVo Premiere?

Thanks guys!

Selling a TiVo

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 04/29/2013 - 19:44
I am about to sell a TiVo and the buyer wants to verify the subscription. It is generally safe to give her the TSN on the back of the device? I just don't want them to try to change my account or anything weird like that.

Thanks!

How do you do an old style search?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 04/29/2013 - 18:07
Hi all,

So I've upgraded to a TiVo premiere recently. Anyway since I don't have Hulu Plus, netflix, or other pay services so having a search option list all of that isn't very useful. Most of the time I just want to search against whatever is actually going to be broadcast in the next 2 weeks.(Which is how the old search was.) Is there any place where I can select that? (I figured that browse TV & Movies would do it but even there if I select the filter "free" it still brings up Netflix and everything else.)

Bates Motel S01E06 - The Truth

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 04/29/2013 - 15:45
Wow. Shootout with Shelby. Norma saying that Norman killed his dad. I wonder if that's true, or if it is just convenient that she can blame it on Norman.

Norman asking her if there is something wrong with him, and she denying it (or did that happen in the previous episode - I saw them back to back), makes me wonder. We saw in a previous episode that Norman does have hallucinations about Norma. He doesn't remember trying to kill his brother with the meat tenderizer. I'm guessing it's possible that he killed his dad. If he really killed his dad, you'd think that she'd try to get him some help for his fugue states.

She also needed to come up with more time on what to say about Shelby. I wonder how much Norman can say. He obviously won't know anything about the shootout, as he was unconscious, but he is fully aware about the sex slave girl. It's going to be hard to keep Emma quiet about things.

I can see them trying to pass off Shelby's responses as him being obsessed with Norma - setting her up for Keith's death because she was trying to break it off with him would be the perfect excuse. Even keeping the girl locked up in the boat makes Shelby look just that much more guilty for Keith's death. Too bad that Norman, Dylan, and Emma left fingerprints all over the place in that boat.

And poor Norma, getting essentially raped a second time. Don't get me wrong - she's a wacko. Still, it shocks me a tad that they'd show things in that way on prime time. I'm guessing due to the fact that it's on A&E instead of one of the standards makes the difference.

I have to say, though, I'm still liking the show. The writers are keeping me guessing as to where the show is leading. They seem to be keeping truthful to the core of Robert Bloch's story (the man who wrote the book that the movie was based on). I like how Freddie Highmore is playing the character. He seems to be doing a really good job.

Bates Motel S01E05 "Ocean View"

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 04/29/2013 - 15:28
I was a couple of weeks behind, so I just caught up.

Norman finally gets some. I had to laugh at the grin that he had while walking down the street. Makes total sense. :p

Norma arrested, being a martyr, not wanting help. It's an abusive relationship she has with Norman. She smothers him with love, and pushes him away, trying to make him cling to her.

Aside from Dylan working for a drug dealer, he's looking out for Norman's best interests. It's nice that it's not all black and white. Dylan driving around in the truck that has his friend's blood all over it seems kinda creepy though.

Interesting that they found the girl. Shelby hiding her in the boat makes a lot of sense, though. Shelby had to know that Norma had suspicions about her, since she went on her walkabout in his house.

I mentioned in an update on the previous thread - you can now download the journal that Norman found (the anime one) on iTunes. You need iBook to read it, I believe. It's also a free download. I checked it out. The chinese is translated for you if you tap on the page.

Jets Dump Tebo

Tivo spokesjock Tim Tebow has been dumped by the New York Jets. No more genuflecting on the sideline. The Jets drafted another quarterback and immediately put Tebow on waivers. So far, no other team is expressing interest. How long will the Tebow-Tivo gig last?

Why Am I Craving an Android TV Box?

Zatz Not Funny! - Mon, 04/29/2013 - 13:10
We got a new flat-screen TV for my house in December of 2009, and we’re not likely to upgrade any time soon. That doesn’t top me from wanting to add a little after-market action, however, and for some inexplicable reason, I find that I’m craving an Android TV box for my living room set-up. Brad [...]

Unable to Clear & Delete after Error 51

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 04/29/2013 - 11:00
My Series 3 (TCD648250B) died recently, which I first thought was the HDD. I was unable to backup the drive with WinMFS (got an error reading the drive) and the drive failed SMART tests. So I found Unitron's fresh image for my model and started over with a new 1TB drive (WD10EAVS restored with WinMFS). Couldn't get that to work so I replaced the caps in my power supply.

Now the TiVo will boot just fine with the fresh drive and I get through setup without any problems. I then get error 51, which is expected. So I do a Clear and Delete, but the TiVo never boots successfully a second time. After getting through the initial setup it seems like everything is working fine (except the error 51 of course). But then I can't get it to boot again after selecting Clear and Delete, which is necessary to clear the error 51. It just hangs on the initial powering up screen (all lights on the front of the box on). Is this where it would hang for hours during a clear and delete?

Any suggestions? I've used old posts on this forum to get this far and it's been incredibly helpful, but I'm at a loss now. I've got lifetime service on this box so I'd really like to rescue it.

Thanks!

TP4 restarted overnight

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 04/29/2013 - 10:59
Did anybody else's Tivo Premiere restart by itself overnight? My TP4 did and I think a friend of mines did too. I immediately checked the Account Information screen for a new build but the version number remained the same. Usually, this kind of behavior signals that a new update is imminent so who knows.

A question about using the new Slingbox 350 with my Premiere ...

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 04/29/2013 - 10:52
My old Slingbox PRO-HD finally broke, and I'm contemplating replacing it with the new 350. Ideally, I would like to send HDMI from the TiVo to my receiver, and component video to the Slingbox. I seem to recall this may cause HDMI handshake issues if all the devices in the HDMI chain aren't turned on. Is this still the case?

Auto Hop (The Hopper)

I was reading that Dish Networks hopper DVR can automatically skip commercials.

Do you think this feature will be available on Tivo in the future rather than having to fast forward?

Finally! That whiny b*tch is gone!

I knew when they had to do the physical task with the barrels that they wouldn't get there before the roller derby moms.

I'm thinking that next week's two-hour finale will be two single episodes with a Philimination at the end of the first hour, then a flight to somewhere (coastal) in the US for the second hour. Or possibly straight to the final destination at the beginning of the first.

Not sure who I want to win, now. The final four are all pretty non-descript.
