sound being muted on premiere xl

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 06/14/2013 - 22:23
I have a premiere xl on version 20.3.1 (not sure how recent this is?).
I also have a hd xl. when I switch inputs on my receiver between the 2 tivos, when I go back to the premiere, its sound will be muted. I have to hit pause twice on the TiVo remote to get the sound back.

I've also noticed on the premiere, if I rewind the live channel a bit and then hit fwd and advance to do the 15 minute advance, when it hits the end of the buffer ("live") the sound is muted and I again have to hit pause twice to get sound again.

All support chat wanted was to try switching to pcm and to connect the TiVo directly to the tv.

anyone else experience this? the HD XL does not experience any of this.

Why so difficult to use TIVO with Comcast

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 06/14/2013 - 20:59
The answers to my question must be in FAQ but I can't find the information.

I'm considering leaving DISH to go to Xfinity/Comcast. I want the Premiere XL4 because Comcast DVR's are way behind the times. I'm in Sacramento. I called Comcast and they said TIVO is not compatible with the their system. From what I can tell from reading, that not true.

Is there somewhere I can find the steps needed to use TIVO with Comcast. Obviously, Comcast needs to cooperate or it won't work. How do I make them cooperate?

I'm assuming I purchase (not lease) the TIVO for $399. I then pay a monthly fee ($15) or lifetime ($100) to TIVO. Comcast shouldn't charge me for a receiver or for leasing equipment but I need to plug the TIVO into the Comcast system -- somehow?

I then pay Comcast for the programming only? How do I get the correct cable card? It seems like a big disadvantage for TIVO that Comcast doesn't cooperate.

Also, since this would be a new service how does Comcast do the install with TIVO's equipment. I must be missing something. It can't be this difficult to get TIVO to work with Xfinity/Comcast? :confused:

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Charter / North Texas lineup change

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 06/14/2013 - 17:44
Charter recently (June 11) went to all digital in North Texas. I dutifully installed cablecards and paired them. No problem with that. Went through all of the setup again to download the new channels. But, TiVo does not seem to know about the channel lineup change for this particular area. To check, I did Repeat Guided Setup and input a zip code for a Charter area that went through the changeover in April. The lineup then is pretty close (but not perfect as expected).

I have submitted a lineup problem ticket at tivo.com. However, the responses seem like the support person on the other end of email is responding from a script.

I thought that I would come here and see if anyone else from the North Texas/Dallas area has had this problem and had better luck getting a resolution.

Service connection issues?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 06/14/2013 - 17:30
Haven't been able to connect to the service since about 12:30 PM, so no Netflix or Streambaby. I can ping the boxes and my internet connection is fine, but I've gotten N11, N15, N18 and C133 errors.
I'm in Texas. I've done all the usual troubleshooting, but no joy. Anyone else having issues?

Kmttg Stopped Decoding From Series 2 DT.

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 06/14/2013 - 16:12
I've been successfully using pyTivo/Kmttg for years now. Many thanks to all involved!

Haven't had a need to download a program from my Series 2 to my PC for awhile but this past week when I started kmttg, chose (1) program and chose "Start Job" I received the following error;

1st line - tivodecode failed (exit code: 9) - check command: "D:/Blair/Tivo/kmttg Videos/tivodecode.exe" -mak MAK --out....etc.
2nd line - read chunk data: No error
3rd line - seek: No error
4th line - Encryption by Qualcomm

The only thing new in my setup is the actual Series 2 DT which I replaced with another Series 2 DT with a larger HDD this past January. My replacement Tivo was recognized by both pyTivo & kmttg without issues until I went to download program off Tivo onto my PC.

pyTivo works without a hitch, in that I can transfer videos off PC onto Series 2 which I do frequently. The transferring of programs from Tivo to PC is failing though kmttg sees all programs on the Tivo to the point I can choose whatever I like, it just won't start the decoding process. The correct MAK is listed and nothing jumps out at me when viewing the "configuration".

I'm using Windows XPsp3 and version of kmttg is v0p7 ,which as stated, worked flawlessly for me. Java has been kept up-to-date. The initial instinct is to install the latest version, but I hesitate in that everything has been working well and I don't want to make matters potentially worse without further insight.

Any insights would be greatly appreciated!!! :confused:

TiVo Mini IR Extender & Wall Mount Now Available

Zatz Not Funny! - Fri, 06/14/2013 - 14:40

Having lived with the TiVo Mini in our master bedroom three months, we’re generally pleased with the solution. Yeah, it’s possibly overpriced at $250 (including Lifetime service)… but remains the only game in (my) town given Verizon’s FiOS TV Media Server delay. And that bug where playback drops towards the end of recordings currently in [...]

Netflix - New Problem

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 06/14/2013 - 13:49
I have a Premiere 4 with the 20.3.1 update (I will have to double check, but I believe so because I see MLB.TV is an app option now). For the past week I have had trouble Netflix. Up until that point, absolutely no problems with the app.

I will start streaming a movie or TV episode and the pause/play/up buttons do not do anything. The content will play fine, but when it is over I just get a black screen and I have to press the Tivo button to get back to the Tivo Menu. If I go back into Netflix, it loads and I can play content but the same issues happen. I have to reset the Tivo in order for Netflix to work properly again.

Has anyone else seen this issue?

Signal strength meter not working

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 06/14/2013 - 12:28
I have a Premier Series 4, I use it for OTA only, today I lost a channel and went to the signal strength meter and it shows 0 for every channel. It shows digital signal acquired and I have a picture but no signal strength. Software version: 20.3.1-01-2-746
Also if I go to the diags screen it also says 0 and snr = 0 also

Also what does the service level mean? mine is C:070813
I never saw this before.

An Alternative to Roxio software?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 06/14/2013 - 12:25
I have been using the Sonic - later Roxio - software since Tivo2Go first was released. At the beginning this was a rock-solid product that happily edited the Tivo file video and then burned it to a DVD.

Those days are long gone. For me Roxio Creator is an exercise in frustration. For me success or failure is a completely random outcome. The software just seems to be fragile to the point of being unusable for me. When it works it's great but I just can't count on it to work.

I am looking for software that will allow me to take an HD Tivo file and edit it a bit. Roxio Creator is pretty good at that. Now comes the problem area. Roxio's myDVD has issues burning that edited file to a AVCHD DVD. It seems to be an issue with having chapters in the output.

That's the issue and I've been fighting it since I tried getting a true HD output burned to a disc.

Is there a DVD maker software available - other than Roxio Creator - that will take a HD Tivo file (or a file with the Tivo wrapper removed) and allow one to edit it and burn AVCHD output to a DVD.


Will we ever get the Guide Option 'Filter' back?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 06/14/2013 - 11:03
When I upgraded to the Premier Tivo 2 years ago, the only feature that I missed was the category Filter in the Guide Options...

1. Why don't we have this simple feature yet???
2. Will we ever get it again?

Anyone for Bridezillas: Marriage Boot Camp? (full season spoilers, I suppose)

Another case of "I would guess I'm the only one watching this, but just in case..."

I am totally addicted to this show. And I almost never get addicted to anything these days.

It's a great mixture of crazy and kinda sad.

I believe a Comcast rep lied regarding Cable Card Self Installation please help

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 06/13/2013 - 22:11
Getting a tivo premiere 4 xl tommorrow and Just talked to comcast rep in online chat about getting a cable card and he tried to tell me there is no self install and that a tech must install for $21.75 Is that correct? Since comcast in my area allows self installs of set top boxes and cable modems wouldnt that mean that they have to offer a self install of cable card under FCC?

I really dont want to spend $22.00 bucks on something that a chimp could do

Necessary Roughness Season 3

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 06/13/2013 - 21:17
I really like this show. The 6 month time jump was a surprise, but I think it worked.

Did Dr Dani (Callie Thorne) have work done on her face? She looks different to me, and not in a good way.

TK cracks me up. "It's not Django", lol! And I love how loyal he is to Dr Dani and his teammates even while trying to maintain the tough guy image.

I like all of the new characters except the Head Coach. Though he may grow on me.

So glad the kids weren't there, hope that remains the same.

And more Nico, though the John Stamos character is pretty easy on the eyes too

Picture frozen when I turn on TV

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 06/13/2013 - 20:39
When I turn on the TV, my picture on my TiVo will be frozen at current spot on whatever is on tuner. Show isn't being recorded. I can do rewind, and have the full 30 minute buffer, and play it up to current time then it freezes on picture. If I switch channels and go back to the channel it was on, and can view show no problem. Says something like trouble getting signal etc... But it's odd that it is only when I turn on TV, never have any freezing or no picture any other time. I have TW with cable cards. I think, but not too sure that it has happened on my other premiere in my bedroom also.

It is usually the 1st time I turn on TV either in morning, or when I get home at night after work.

Cable card? tuning adapter?
