ABC to offer live streaming to cable/sat subscribers

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 05/12/2013 - 22:07

Quote: "Watch ABC" will debut this fall and allow viewers to watch the network from mobile devices and tablets when they are away from home. Watch ABC will basically be a live stream of the network's feed as well as local programming such as news.

There are some catches. The service is only available to people who already have a pay-TV provider. Also, it will initially not be available in every market because ABC needs to reach distribution agreements for Watch ABC with all its local affiliates.

The first two markets to have Watch ABC will be New York and Philadelphia starting May 14, where ABC owns the stations. Then ABC will roll the service out to other markets where it owns local TV stations including KABC-TV Los Angeles. and a few more bits of info about it from the NY Times


Quote: While Apple devices came first, other phones and tablets will be supported in the coming months, Mr. Cheng said. Securing the necessary rights from programming providers was laborious, but ABC will be able to stream all of its stations’ local newscasts, syndicated talk shows like “Katie,” and national series like “Grey’s Anatomy.” Quote: In the future, ABC will withhold its most recent TV episodes from the free versions of Hulu and ABC.com, further limiting access to paying subscribers of cable and satellite providers only.

Thinking of Windows 8 desktop to run streambaby and pytivo?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 05/12/2013 - 20:00
I am thinking of using an inexpensive desktop running Windows 8 to stream media via Streambaby and Pytivo.

I was using an LX195 running WHS 2008. However, most of the features I don't need. I am doing backups manual myself with Second Copy application.

Other than power consumption, are there any drawbacks I may not be aware of?

Please let me know. Thanks.

Any way to have "Record from VCR" recordings grouped?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 05/12/2013 - 16:22
I have a Humax Tivo that allows recordings from VCR. I use that feature to copy in videos of my kid's sports events. This means I have lots of recordings in the Now Playing like this:

Swim meet 1/21
Swim meet 1/28
Swim meet 2/15

Does anyone know of a way to group those in the listing? I want it to instead be:

Swim meet

Like it would for a TV show with multiple episodes.

from satellite to tivo for OTA

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 05/12/2013 - 10:28
I'm currently a Directv subscriber but I find more and more that I'm mostly watching netflix or the OTA channels through the satellite receiver so I'm toying with the idea of dumping directv. I can get my OTA channels from an antenna but the DVR is my hangup. I use DVR a lot. Has anyone else dumped their cable or satellite provider and use Tivo as an OTA DVR? How is that working for you?

Tivo App Suggestion

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 05/12/2013 - 09:58
It would be nice to have the ability to ADD wishlists for shows and movies that are not in the program guide. Example: I want to record a show coming out in the fall called "Wild Blue". Since I have the app, I would like to add that show to one of my DVR's wishlists, but have to wait until I get home and remember to do it.

Thanks Tivo!

Something just didn't feel right about this episode.

Please tell Neil Gaiman that he was supposed to write about the Cybermen, not the Borg.

I think they had a faulty "implosion bomb".

TiVo Premiere XL gone?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 05/12/2013 - 07:20
I noticed today that TiVo is no longer offering the Premiere XL on their website. Does anyone know why this DVR is no longer available? It offered twice the hard drive space of the standard Premiere.

Tivodecode replacement that has GUI?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 05/12/2013 - 06:19
I want to take .Tivo files with me to watch at a location that I do not have a Tivo at. I know that Tivodecode will strip the encryption but i cannot get it to work. I'm not criticizing the program.....I'm just not a command line sort of guy. I really need a GUI to work with. ( I have Tivo Desktop Plus).
I would like a no cost program but would be willing to pay for one if i must. I have found a couple of programs on a google search but would prefer a recommendation from someone here because i'm worried about downloading nasties from bad people.
Thank you for your help

Family Tree - New HBO series starts May 12th

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 05/12/2013 - 05:40
Just saw this review on IGN.com


Show stars Chris O'Dowd from IT Crowd and Bridesmaids. Show is made by Christopher Guest who did Spinal Tap, Best in Show, etc...

I will watch it because it is HBO and I loved IT Crowd. I pretty much hate anything Christopher Guest does. So, we will see what I think about it I guess.

Burn Notice burned out...

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 05/12/2013 - 00:25
Well not unexpectedly, USA has decided that this will be the final season of Brin Notice. I'll miss it, but I have to admit it's not the draw it once was. It's gotten a bit predictable and repetitive.

Hopefully the writers will end it in a satisfactory manner.

TivoHD 4 year vet, Premiere XL4 2 day noob, simple q...

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 05/12/2013 - 00:15
Hi all, seems so easy but I just can't figure this out lol! So when I am in any tivo premiere menu, how do I go back to my recorded program? (not live tv button)

I use a harmony remote if that helps...

bonus q... i get a lot of sound dropouts between menus, is this normal? I thought it was my Onkyo AVR at first but i run hdmi and composite simultaneously (to two sources) and it happens on both, eliminating the onkyo as the cause. Seems like there are multiple scenarios causing audio dropouts, i am not hearing things right???!!

Bad internal drive or expander?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 05/11/2013 - 23:32
I have a TiVo HD with an external WD DVR expander (wd10000f032). Today I turned on my TV and saw the orange "Welcome! Powering up..." screen, and it wouldn't get past that screen. Restarted several times, tried to get kickstart going, no joy. I disconnected the expander and restarted, and this time I got past "Welcome! Powering up..." and the next screen ("Almost there...") before getting the screen asking me to confirm that I wanted to remove my external drive and lose my recordings.

What I want is a) to confirm my conclusion that this means my issue is a failing WD expander and not the internal drive, and b) to see if there is some way to recover the expander - the whole drive if possible (maybe some diagnostic tool that fixes the drive or marks the bad sectors as off limits or something), but at least the recordings on it.

More info - when the expander starts up the circles glow orange like normal, but I hear a noise that it repeats three or four times. The pattern is a buzzing for about a second, followed by a quick buzz at a higher pitch (makes me think the drive arm/head/whatever moves from one side to the other at one speed, then goes back at a faster speed - it sounds like a stepper motor). Like I said, it does this three or four times when the drive starts. When I restarted the TiVo with the drive plugged in, it also repeated the pattern of buzzes after the "Welcome..." screen appeared.
