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.
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:

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?
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.
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".
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.
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
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.
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.
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???!!

Well, that was almost as good as I could have hoped for, though I am disappointed there was no 2 A-Holes sketch.
Bests for me were Calfornians, Anthony Crispino, and oddly the Acupuncture thing.
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.

Here ya' go...
Another excellent episode.
I currently have four active premiers. I just activated the fourth about a week ago, replacing a Series2 device in my living room. When I began using this device I noticed that my bedroom Tivo was accessible via Multi-Room viewing. I was aware that MRV was able to be disabled from my account at Tivo.com and went there and attempted to disable this feature. The changes didn't take and now three of my Tivos are able to accessed by each other. The fourth shows that it is not in the acount.
What I'm getting at, is there are programs on my bedroom Tivo that I don't want to be seen from the living room or my kids rooms. I called customer support and a tech tried to help but could not do so. He had no answer for me except to suggest I turn on parental controls on the other devices. This suggestion is useless as my kids are 17 & 19 and mature enough to watch whatever they please. They just don't need to know what Mom & Dad are watching.
Is anyone else having this issue? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
