Orphan Black 4/18/15 "The Weight of This Combination"

♬ I’m so excited ♪
♪ And I just can’t hide it ♬

And we’re off! Bring on the CLONE WARS!!!

Awww, Helena has the sweetest fantasies! Until not so much.

It seems almost wrong that Tatiana Maslany only gets listed once in the credits...

So shall Krystal be known as Boob-Job Clone?

Alison the politician. THAT should go well! “For the kids. Right.”

Almost well as a Rachel whose brain has been physically altered.

Poor, heart-broken Cosima. She needs to be comforted. I volunteer, but only because that’s just the kind of guy I am. Delphine’s not good enough for her anyway.

Interesting watching Sarah transform into Rachel. It must be a tiny taste of what Tatiana goes through every day. It never ceases to amaze me how good Tatiana is not only at playing the different clones, but at playing the different clones playing each other.

Poor Sarah–Rachel, getting in over her head.

I don’t really like the new, empowered Delphine. Or rather, I guess, the old Delphine who we’re getting to see for the first time?

I guess the safe word is Delphine.

Is Tatiana the voice of the scorpion?

Boy clones...not feeling it yet, but then, they don't seem to have tried to make me feel it. Yet.

Pairing Jail

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 04/18/2015 - 20:38
I got my new Tivo Roamio Plus yesterday. As you can imagine I was pretty excited. I had tried Tivo about 6 years ago but sent it back in favor of a Window's Media Center cable card tuner.

But this new Tivo is much different. A LOT to like.

So, last night I connected to the network via Moca, and all was well. I popped in the Cable Card from my PC and voila! it just worked. I could do all the things I expected. Even the higher tier channels like ESPN, HGTV, etc worked fine. But, unfortunately, no HBO. Said I didn't have authority to it. That's ok, I thought, I'll tackle that tomorrow.

So, today I call Verizon and get a guy that knows nothing about cable cards. It happens. After about 15 minutes I give up, thank him, and hang up. Verizon has a computer attendant that can do the pairing via phone. So, I call that number, enter the card ID, host ID and data ID. It says it's pairing and it could take a half hour.

I hang up, wait a half hour then look. Nope. Still no HBO. But, wait, now I don't have any of the other encrypted channels. All I can see is local channels. Crap, I'm worse off than when I started. So, I go through the automated process again. Same result.

Bummer, I have to call again. This time I get a woman that knows cable cards and Tivo. Woohoo. She sends the signal down. For a second I get ESPN but it goes away and I'm back to only local channels. She tries this again. She even decommissions the card and resends the info. I spend over an hour on the phone with her. She says that no matter what she does she can't write to the cable card. It still has the old host ID from the PC tuner.

Sigh. She sets up a FedEx of a new card that will arrive Tuesday. I'm hoping that fixes things. Otherwise I get the joy of missing a half day of work waiting for the cable guy.

Any other suggestions you may have that I can try before Tuesday would be very appreciated.

Pioneer receiver codes??

I now have my roamio and 2 minis setup. One issue I have is the tv remote doesn't work with any pioneer codes with my pioneer sc-61 receiver. I've tried twice all the codes. Am I missing something or is this a known issue with pioneer?

Any particular reason my suggestions is LOADED with infomercial

Pretty dang annoying. Why the heck is it doing that? It's only been over the last week... 109 of them. What the ****?

Streaming problem to iPad Air 2 and The Americans

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 04/18/2015 - 17:45
I recently upgraded to an iPad Air 2 and my in-home streaming is very unreliable.

Network setup is:
-FIOS with Cablecards
-Tivo Premiere and Roamio Plus
-Boxes are hardwired via Moca Adaptors
-Apple Airport Extreme

Streaming and downloading to my iPhone or my wife's iPhone (both 6's) works perfectly. Streaming to my son's iPad Mini 2 also works fine.

Streaming to my new iPad Air 2 and very often the video freezes but the audio continues. Strangely, it's intermittent on all channels but FX. When watching the Americans, the only FX show I watch, it is guaranteed to happen 100% of the time.

Any thoughts?

Romeo upgrade for series 3 users

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 04/18/2015 - 16:15
I was a little disappointed when then sent me an email about the loss of Amazon on my Series 3 box. Couldn't care less about YouTube - but will certainly miss Amazon.
I was excited to see they were offering upgrades for those of us affected.
Unfortunately it's not an upgrade if it doesn't let me take my lifetime service to the new box. So - back to disappointed again.
Has anyone else gotten a different story on this?

I found this channel surfing one morning. They have some amazing stories.

This week's ep featured a couple of 3D food printers. One did mini pizzas and such. The other did incredible confection pieces. This one was right in my wheelhouse. :)

They have lots of interesting tidbits on the show.

New FIOS Tv package doesn't include ESPN. ESPN not happy.

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 04/18/2015 - 11:14

FIOS is introducing FIOS Custom TV for $55/mo starting April 19th with locals and some of the most popular channels and regulating ESPN to a sports add-on package. Add-on packages are $10/mo.

ESPN is not happy and says the contracts they have in place say Verizon isn't allowed to distribute ESPN and ESPN2 in a separate add-on package.

Noticed that the TiVo Central menu changed last night and Netflix replaced Video on Demand (and there was a message about the change).

Bluetooth Sound - how to add

Switching tuners with Live TV button stops working

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 04/18/2015 - 08:51
I have a Tivo Roamio. I like to switch between tuners by pressing the Live TV button. The problem is that the functionality disappears from my Tivo after some period of time, at which point pressing the Live TV button I only see the channel info for the current tuner/channel.

Sometime I can go as long as two weeks before the function disappears, other times it is just a few days. A reboot fixes the problem for a short while, but it eventually stops working again.

any ideas?

The Amazing Race - Double Episode 4/17/2015 *spoilers*

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 04/18/2015 - 03:22
No surprise that the first leg of this double episode was non-elimination. I was more surprised that it was Steve and Aly bringing up the rear. But she really came off poorly in that first leg, with her whining about how hard it was to dig a hole (while all the other teams caught and passed her), and then her basically gloating in Steve's face about how she told him not to drive close to the side of the road after they got a flat tire.

How is it that Mike works at a truck stop and yet seems to be so illiterate about cars? He should be too embarrassed to ever show his face again in front of truckers after he couldn't even figure out how to turn the key. And how funny was it when he came back from retrieving the box and said that was by far the hardest thing he's done on the race? Dude, all you did was go out across a flat desert, pick up a box, and bring it back.

I thought it was pretty cool how Matt and Ashley and Tyler and Laura finished both legs within seconds of each other, with each of them getting a chance to finish first.

I paused the German clue and read all the directions. I was hoping there would be some kind of Easter egg in there, but it was just straightforward driving directions.

SD v HD menu choice?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 04/17/2015 - 23:43
Been using SD menu for years on my TPXL.
When I went to access Netflix tonight a screen came up instructing me to switch to HD menus.
Does anyone know if this is Tivo trying to phase out SD menus?

Moca - Mini will not connect to Tivo Premiere

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 04/17/2015 - 22:50
I have a Tivo Mini as well as a Tivo Premiere Series 4. I'm attempting to connect them via Moca. I followed a great guide found on this forum. It appears that the Mini finds the network because it can connect to the Tivo services. However, before the setup completes the Mini says that it needs to connect to a compatible DVR. Tivo customer support says that I need to either have an XL or just get a new Romio. The Premiere is running just as it should. Right now I have the coax(from outside) coming directly into a POE filter then into a Moca splitter. My Motorola Surfboard(SBG-6782) creates the Moca network and can see both Tivo boxes. The Premiere has an ActionTec Moca adapter and receives an internet connection. I'm just having trouble connecting the Mini. Am I doing something wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Need help with Comcast

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 04/17/2015 - 21:42
The level of incompetence displayed by them is awe inspiring. I'm not sure who to talk to because I have departments pointing fingers at each other.

The problem:
My cablecard has had 3 channels (ABCHD, NBCHD, CBSHD) spontaneously become unauthorized. Why those? Dunno, all my other channels work fine, but I'm losing a lot of recordings.

The local office's system says I have a cablecard. The cablecard activation people's system says I have a cablecard equipped cable box. Oops!

The cablecard people say they can't fix anything because their system doesn't think it's a cablecard. The regular CSRs can't fix anything because it's not an xfinity box. Moreover, all departments claim they have no ability to fix the erroneous database information and can't point me to somebody who can. I have no idea if the database screwup is the cause of the problem either.

The cablecard csr scheduled a technician to come over. As I said to them numerous times, I don't see how a local technician can fix the problem, because the problem isn't the cablecard the problem is the broken database which he has no access to and the local system appears to have it properly registered. The csr was fixated on the idea that the technician could call "local dispatch" to fix it, but was unable to explain how their system differed from that in the local retail office, nor could they explain why I couldn't talk to them myself so as to not waste time/money on a truck roll.

Moreover, this is the second cablecard. The first had the same database error, but they gave me another one and this one worked perfectly for a couple of months so I figured it was fixed. Now I wonder if every cablecard in the county (Palm Beach County Florida) is wrongly registered in Comcast's inventory, because it's unlikely two different cablecards are both misregistered in exactly the same way unless it's SOP in the local offices to misregister them.

NdGT Wishlist not picking up StarTalk -- Starts Monday

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 04/17/2015 - 15:29
When I heard Neil deGrasse Tyson was starting a new show, I added a WishList for him. It recently picked up an appearance on the Today show, but appears to have missed him in the premier on Monday. So...

StarTalk: Monday, 11PM, NatGeo

Interestingly, even if you explore StarTalk's cast and create a WishList from Tyson's entry, it won't find StarTalk.
