2nd tuner stopped working on all THR22s?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/07/2013 - 22:03
my 2nd tuner stopped working on my DirecTivo THR22-100 and tech support said it is a known problem that many people are experiencing and that they are working on it?!?

Anybody else having this issue and were you told the same thing?

It is strange that it just started happening and now it's a known issue....seems like maybe there was a software update that went wrong.

any help?

Revenge Season 2 Episode 10 and On (Spoilers)

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/07/2013 - 21:34
There don't seem to be episode threads much this season, so thought with the new year I'd start a thread for the rest of the second season.

Episode 10 "Power"
Wow, Victoria is willing to let Emily back in?

I love Nolan. His Remington Steele comment cracked me up.

Jack is just too dumb to live. He and Declan don't have a brain between them.

I'm a bit lost on who the woman is feeding Daniel info. Is she from 'the initiative'? What's her goal?

Considering TiVo and Xfinity

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/07/2013 - 21:29
I had TiVo years ago with DirecTV and really miss it.

I have Uverse now but am just starting to consider switching to TiVo and Xfinity but I have a few questions:

1. I have 3 TVs. If I have TiVo on one and Xfinity boxes on the other two how will that work?

2. I read in an Amazon review of the Premium TiVo that there is a lot of TiVo generated advertising. Is that the case and is it a problem?

3. Does the new TiVo work as well as the old DirecTV TiVo's as far as Wish List and scheduling programs? Anything new that will blow me away.

4. With Uverse they advertise recording 4 HD shows at the same time. Turns out it all depends on the copper length to your house. I get 2 HD and one SD stream. Are there any similar gotcha's with Xfininty?

5. I hear rumors of a 6 tuner TiVo. Sill Xfinity support that?

Any other thoughts or suggestions regarding switching from Uverse to Xfinity and TiVo?


tivo so3 error and no video

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/07/2013 - 21:26
This is my first time posting to the forums and this seems like a good place to start. This is my first TiVo issue after having 2 boxes. The past few weeks ago, we experienced an ice storm and when they were repairing the power lines it made my power flicker like crazy. Since this issue my TiVo informed me it needed me to download program info. This is when the so3 error occurred. A few days ago I was messing around with my surge protector and changed my coaxials. Now. The TiVo won't even show basic channels. I even plugged up the coax to the tv and it appears to be working fine. Here is a list of things I have done. Hard and soft reset, completed guided setup, called cable company and requested signal reboot. The TiVo is the hundred dollar model from bestbuy and I have a western digital 1tb, expandable hd. The next attempt I am going to try is a complete factory reset. Anyone got some suggestions?

Ps. I have also tried the pause 57 trick, and all it did was put me thru guided setup

Connect an old (very old television) with AV cables to BOTH a Tivo Premiere and a Roku??

The Tivo's been working fine since last Fall.

I found a Roku on Craigslist for a good price and thought I'd try hooking it up; but, there is the whole cable limitation issue.

Anyone got any ideas?? Kind of hard to do a Google search when I don't know what I'm looking for :p



Download bandwidth questions

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/07/2013 - 20:29
I've gotten more into downloaded videos, from Hulu, Netflix, and Amazon. I've been having some problems with Amazon, but even when it works, it takes awhile to download. But Hulu and Netflix stream down with no problem. If I download a torrent, its slower than Netflix or Hulu. What governs download speeds?

Stream TV Proposes Ultra-D 2160p Format

Zatz Not Funny! - Mon, 01/07/2013 - 17:21
Because 1080 isn’t a big enough number, Stream TV Networks wants to go 2160. Ultra-D 2160p, that is. The proposed new format is higher resolution than HD, but also provides a 3D video effect sans the glasses. According to Stream TV, the technology uses a multi-layer optical system (Um?), and is based on proprietary hardware, [...]

What happens if you add duplicates on SPs - is it smart enough to only record it once - or does it record two?

Westinghouse 50" LCD and Tivo remote

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/07/2013 - 13:07
I used code 0238 to program my Tivo remote for Westinghouse CW50T9XW 50-inch LCD HDTV (on sale last Black Friday).

The good news is the remote works for all the buttons that should work: power, volume, mute, etc.

The bad news is some buttons on remote have "dual-action" on Tivo and on the TV.
For example, FF starts fast forward in Tivo, but also kicks TV into setup. Number "2" works for the Tivo as intended, but also drops me into input selection on the TV. 30-second skip button toggles through screen fit modes on the TV (Standard/Fill/Overscan).

I found a few references to this, e.g. www fixya com support t15315354-westinghouse_tv_goes_setup_when_tivo but suggestions there did not work.

I would prefer to continue using the Tivo remote. Is it possible without the "side effects"?

Sharp Promises 3D TV that’s not 3D

Sharp is coming out with a long line of products in 2013, but perhaps most interesting in the group is a new series of 4K, Ultra HD TVs set to launch this summer.

Suggestions Folder gone

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/07/2013 - 12:06
Since the upgrade a few months ago the Suggestion Folder that used to be at the bottom of the listings above the "Recently Deleted" has disappeared.

The suggested programs have not though, but they can only be found by "un-grouping" the list.

Will there be a fix for this soon???


Netflix problem due to Premiere Hardware Differences?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/07/2013 - 12:05
I own two Tivo 45 hr Premiere 2 tuners. I upgraded the hard drive of my first Premiere purchased in May 2010 to expand my recording capacity. My second Tivo Premiere I purchased in April 2012 and I have not upgraded.

The problem I experienced recently is using Netflix streaming on my May 2010 Premiere. Netflix seems to stutter at times and audio and video cut out periodically throughout a 1 hr show. If I stream from my April 2012 Premiere, I experience none of these issues. Both are hard-wired with gig Ethernet.

That brings me to my question: is there a hardware difference in Premieres manufactured about 2 years apart? In general, the newer Premiere seems zippier using menus, etc.
