The Walking Dead Season 3 Finale (Spoiler Alert!) Falls Dead of Expectations

TiVo Blog - Wed, 04/03/2013 - 16:59
Ask any fan of the The Walking Dead series why they stuck through the somewhat slow-feeling pace of Season 3, and they’ll tell you that it was all for the chance to see the impending showdown between the Governor and Rick -”The Great War” that pits the town of Woodbury against the prison. In every episode leading up to the finale, fans were teased with scenes of Rick looking grimly toward the horizon, snippets of the growing lunacy of the Governor, and both sides preparing for what was bound to be a cataclysmic fight Continue Reading

As soon as the girls said, "It should be the Pam and Winnie show," I knew they were history. I hate when the editing is so obvious from the very start.

How unfortunate the police officer was on the side of the road with a radar gun. Something about that whole thing seemed "off" to me. I'm sure it was all real, and they were speeding, but, it was definitely something that made me go "hmmmmmm."


TiVo Series2: "Searching for signal on: Basic Cable In."

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 03/31/2013 - 23:52
I just set up my TiVo Series 2 single tuner TiVo with basic cable and a digital converter box. I chose "cable without a box." I actually made it through Guided Setup (which proved difficult before). I was so excited, then found that I could not watch live TV. The message "searching for signal on: basic cable in." shows up on every channel.

It will only show one channel. Channel 4. This is the same channel the converter box is set to. It is showing the ABC channel when the TiVo guide thinks its HSN.

The wiring is as follows:
Cable from wall->digital converter box
Cable from box->TiVo
AV Cord from TiVo-> TV

I then tried to set it up as "antenna with box." This gave me what looked like the option to change channels, but the same channel showed up each time I "changed" the channel.

Side note: this is a used TiVo purchased from eBay. The TV I'm connecting it to has been previously used with the digital converter box with no issues.

I'm at a loss of what to do next. I'm assuming I just need to pick the correct setup option. What would that be for basic cable with a digital converter box?

If you think it's something besides that, let me know any other suggestions. Please! Kinda ready to pull my hair out :)

No thread yet?

I REALLY loved that the opening credits shows Winterfell burning. That was truly awesome.

Dani is really coming into her own.

As for the rest.. fastest hour on TV. If we can't get more episodes can we at least get 2 hour episodes? I'm ready for the next episode already!

Good stuff, but how did Andrea not survive that attack? I mean I knew she wasn't making it out of the episode alive, but c'mon she made it out of the cuffs and couldn't take down or avoid zombie Milton?

Latest (MFSlive ?) mfstools source wanted

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 03/31/2013 - 19:54
Where can i find the latest/greatest sources for the mfstools ? I have been looking around, the origial sources seem to be older than what is being compiled into MFSlive-1.4, but the sources for MFSlive-1.4 can only be downloaded from the forum page by members, and i guess that shop has been closed to new members for some years now, so it's not accessible to me.

The Vampire Diaries "American Gothic" 3/28/2013

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 03/31/2013 - 17:39
Anybody else still watching? I find myself letting a couple of days go by before watching the latest episode.

The whole vampire being able to willingly turn off her/his humanity like a switch to be really stupid. To me, that is. I could see it being a rare thing like something only a powerful witch can do but it seems like any ol' vampire can do it any ol' time. It's a plot point that makes Elena more interesting and entertaining. I guess that's a good thing since the whole VD universe revolves around her. However it seems to be making her more like Katherine while Katherine probably becomes more like the old Elena because of Elijah.

Klaus annoys the heck out of me. I hope he gets his own spinoff so he can get off this show. One of the most powerful beings on the planet spends his time pining and whining after an 18 year old airhead in some podunk town. He's so small time.

I have this drive sitting around, thought I'd put it in my Tivo HD.

Will it work?

Issues attempting to burn a DVD

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 03/31/2013 - 15:43
I am using Roxio Creator 12 to attempt to burn edited Tivo files to DVD.

I transfer the Tivo file from my Tivo Premiere to my computer using Tivo Desktop. I edit the transferred file using Roxio Creator 12's "Edit Video - Advanced" Button. [ Roxio VideoWave ] I am able to edit the Tivo File and save the resulting work in a DMSM file.

After finishing editing I now click on the DVD button in VideoWave - this transfers my work to MyDVD which should allow me to create a DVD of the edited Tivo file.

Shortly after MyDVD starts via the process I have described so far, I get the following Error Box.

Error Box is displayed as follows:

Title of Box

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library

Message in Box

Runtime Error!

Program C:\Program Files(x86)\Roxio 12\VideoWave13.exe

- not enough space for thread data

Starting up MyDVD independently - without any video file loaded up - causes no issues. About 5 seconds after I try to load the file DMSM file I saved earlier [ edited Tivo file ] I get the same error box as I have described.

I have almost a TB of free space on my hard drive. Any thoughts to what the problem is?

Best regards,

Shark Tank - 3/29/13

Really enjoyed Shark Tank this week. I WANT ONE OF THOSE Stop Drop thingies, and was surprised at Robert and Damon's reactions saying that they couldn't see the need for one. Was glad that they got a deal.

And wow, that young girl was impressive! By far one of the best presenters ever on this show!

Using Premiere with Stream, Baby, Stream

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 03/31/2013 - 01:30
I'm trying to use Stream, Baby, Stream with my premiere.

I can do so quite easily with my Windows laptop.
I have not been able to do so with my Linux server.

I'm 99% sure the issue is with my network configuration, which is more complicated than usual.

I have the following devices connected together in series:
  • a phone jack
  • an ADSL2 modem (in bridge mode)
  • a hub
  • a wireless router
  • the premiere
The laptop is connected to the wireless router.
The Linux server is connected to the hub.

My dsl service comes with several static IP addresses. The wireless router and the Linux server have static IP addresses. The laptop and the premiere do not, but instead use DHCP with the wireless router.

The premier can see Stream, Baby, Stream on the laptop, but not the Linux server. I assume that's because the premier is sending out some sort of broadcast request for "showcases" that the router is forwarding to the laptop (inside its local network) but not to the server (outside its local network).

Can anyone explain the problem to me, and even better, provide a solution?

Premier not updating

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 03/30/2013 - 21:33
Got a message today that my Premier has not updated in 10 days. I manually told it to connect which it did, downloaded the file, and started to load the data into my machine. It gets to 7% and stops. I only have 3 days of program information left. Any suggestions? I am getting ready to restart the machine, I hope that fixes it.


Bates Motel S01E02

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 03/30/2013 - 21:08
Interesting episode. The other son is interesting. He is obviously going to start trouble. I think he likes Norma as well as Norman (if you catch my drift) but is angry about it and jealous of Norman.

Again we get Norma showing her body to Norman and get to see his reaction. It is all very weird.

So Emma was able to type in pictograms for translation? Not buying it. I'm guessing it was too much hassle to explain, so they just glossed over it.

The cops and the town "taking care of things" is a little dark. I wonder how long before they protect Norma instead of prosecuting her.

I do like how we have all of these unexplained things. Makes me want to continue watching. I find it interesting how the set designer uses all of these things that are old, kind of a throw back to the original movie. The school teacher wears Peter Pan collars and cardigans. She looks like she stepped out of the fifties. Norman was watching black and white TV, the record player was a seriously old system. I didn't recognize the song, but I bet it was appropriately old.
