TiVo Blog - Fri, 06/21/2013 - 15:27
Top Five Moments of The Voice and The Automobiles Owned by Fans of The Program. This week, America voted in this season’s winner of The Voice. Jam-packed with performances from music legends Bob Seger, Bruno Mars, Cher and more, the season finale was one not to miss. Up against Team Usher’s Michelle Chamuel, Blake Shelton had some real competition, but the odds were in his favor with two contestants, The Swon Brothers and Danielle Bradbury, in the top three. Left in the hands of the fans to decide, the youngest Continue Reading

TiVo Stream constantly "overheats"

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 06/21/2013 - 15:12
The TiVo Stream is sitting on a table in the living room and nearly every time we try to use it to watch something (elsewhere in the house) on an iPad or iPhone, it gives the message that the Stream overheated.

So we have to go into the iPad app and restart the Stream before any viewing can begin. Then, usually a few minutes (sometimes a half hour) into the program text appears superimposed on the video saying "Finished" and the picture freezes.

When this happens the room is not even hot enough to turn on the A/C.
Is this a design flaw that we are just the last to learn about?

Upgrading my Premier 4

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 06/21/2013 - 14:50
What is the going recommendation for upgrading and supersizing the internal drive?

I'm seeing winmfs, MFS linux boot disc and jmfs. I've done the linux procedure on older TIVOs but the winmfs is appealing so that i can have a backup for the future. Any opinions? Do they all still work on the new 4 tuner box?


Long Distance Wireless A/V

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 06/21/2013 - 14:44
I have a need for a wireless xmt/rcv audio video set that can work up to 100 feet through walls. Please don't ask why I need it or suggest other options. I've already eliminated them. I don't want to spend a fortune and I don't want interference with my wireless internet or my neighbor's wireless internet. The options I've seen so far are at 1.2 Ghz, 2.4Ghz, 2.5Ghz, and 5.8Ghz. The best I can tell, to go through walls at that distance I probably need at least 1 watt. Any real life experiences in this area would be greatly appreciated.

Premiere XL Struck by Lightning

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 06/21/2013 - 12:54
I have a Premiere XL and it was struck by lightning (I believe) last week. I was getting absolutely nothing out of it when I plugged it in, no lights, etc. So I thought I would try replacing the power supply. Now the only activity I get is the hard drive spins and the Ethernet jack lights light up.

I looked all over for a fuse but can't find one. Has anyone had a similar experience? I called Tivo and all they offer is to replace it for $ 150.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Placing Mini Behind Wall Mounted TV?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 06/21/2013 - 10:56
Thinking about mounting the Mini to wall behind my wall hung TV as an option.
Have some questions:

1) Has any1 bought the TiVo Mini Mount & IR Adapter kit to do this?
2) Where would the IR eye go from the kit?
3) Is it doable to put the Mini in a distant closet & use an IR or RF repeater to control it remotely?
4) Other options?

Goals are:
Clean look.
No device hanging below the TV.
Refrain from cut outs in the wall to "hide" them.
Slim profile TV & Mount makes positioning the Mini very limited.

Appreciate any feedback.

Is TGIF Making a Comeback?

TiVo Blog - Fri, 06/21/2013 - 10:28
It’s official! Girl Meets World will debut in 2014—14 years after Boy Meets World ended back in 2000. We watched Cory, Shawn, Topanga and Eric grow up, experience college, struggle with marriage and constantly depend on Mr. Feeny. While Boy Meets World is a timeless show, it was also a classic hit within ABC’s TGIF lineup. TGIF grew in popularity throughout the 1990s until it ended in 2000. With its own jingle (“It’s Friday night/And the mood is right/Gonna have some fun/Show you how it’s done, TGIF”), TGIF was a Continue Reading

Season Passes Automatically Reordering

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 06/21/2013 - 09:23
I have an HD Tivo

Sunday night, I noticed programs that I was expecting to record didn't, so I went to the To Do List, and noticed it was fairly empty.

I went in to my season passes to reorder them in order to get the To Do List to re-populate, and noticed they were all out of order. Some of my top passes were at the bottom of the list, and vice versa.

I've rebooted, and tried re-ordering the season passes multiple times, but they keep changing order.

The top 9 or 10 seem to stick, but everything else jumps all over the place.
I do use the online season pass manager and the iphone ap, but no method seems to make them stick.

Any thoughts on what is causing this? This is really frustrating, and it is a pain to keep reordering them!:(

Edit manual recording names?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 06/20/2013 - 23:21
I have a Series 2 Toshiba RS-TX60 (v9.3.2). Is there a way to EDIT the names of "manual recordings"? (By "name" I mean the items that appear under the "Now Playing" list.)

I know you can specify the name of a recording made from a VCR or camera, when you create it. But when I use the "manual recording" feature (or the red record button on the remote), my Tivo automatically assigns a program name (from the tv schedule).

(I hope to enable Video On Demand soon, but for now, if I want to record something "On Demand", I have to start the "On Demand" content on my comcast cable box, and then start a manual recording on the Tivo. But Tivo assigns it the name of whatever show is whatever channel I was on BEFORE I went to the On Demand menu.)

(I tried recording thru the "Record from VCR or Camera" menu, but for some reason I'm not getting audio.)

TWC Channel switch

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 06/20/2013 - 20:15
TWC has a new channel line up in my area. Some of the new channel numbers are some of the channels I unchecked as I didn't check those channels again.

If I re-run the guided setup will it "recheck" the channels I know get or do I have to go to the channel map and manually recheck the channels?

Tivo App Network Issue

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 06/20/2013 - 16:12
I've had the Tivo app working well for awhile with a Tivo Stream. Recently I put in an access point to help out with some WiFi dead spots in my house. The problem is that the app thinks I'm not on the same network as my Tivos when my iphone is connected via the access point. And when it thinks I'm not on the same network I can't use the stream functionality in those areas of my house. The app works fine when I'm in the areas of the house that connect to router as opposed to the access point.

My Tivos are connected via wired ethernet (via a wired switch to my router). I have a DIR-655 router and the access point is an Edimax EW-7228APn set in access point mode and is connected via wired ethernet to the router. I'm using the same SSID and the Edimax is obviously set up not to give out IP addresses as it's just in access point mode.

The only thing I can think of is that the router's IP address is and I set the Edimax IP address to since the DHCP on the router is set to give out - 199, so I didn't want to use one of those IPs. But I don't see why that should really matter.

Anyone have any ideas?


Need a New DVR

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 06/20/2013 - 14:03
I've been out of the loop for a while. Sorry for the noob questions, but not sure where to look exactly.

My basic Tivo based DVR in my bedroom (HR10-250) just died about a week ago. I think it just does HD OTA. I cycled the power and the message comes up "Powering UP, Please Wait". Well the message was something like that. Then it just keeps clicking at about 1hz. So I'm guessing something finally died in it. Maybe the hard drive.

Anyway, I guess I need a replacement DVR now. My main one, in the living room, is a HR20-100. I guess I could migrate that to the bedroom and get a new one for the main living room location. Any good suggestions on what to get? I'd rather not start a new contract commitment.

TWA Flight 800

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 06/20/2013 - 13:47
There has been a lot said lately about TWA Flight 800. It is a Movie or Documentary starting on July 17th. However, so far, I have only seen that it will be on EPIX. We do not get that here on Frontier FIOS TV, but was wondering if anyone has seen that it will be shown on any other channel. Not having EPIX do they usually make their stuff available?

Recording a show from the mini?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 06/20/2013 - 09:07
Pretty basic scenario - One Premiere-4 and one mini. One tuner allocated to the mini.

Say I have three recordings scheduled on the P4's three tuners then go over to the mini.

I get that it can watch live because it has its allocated fourth tuner. Can I use the mini to record that fourth show? Does that just force the mini to stay tuned to the fourth recording?

The situation I want to do is record three on the P4 then go up to the mini and schedule a fourth. Can this be done?
