Robot Combat League all eps spoilers OK

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 03/14/2013 - 10:29
When this show was announced, I thought it would be like Battlebots with teams of engineers competing with RC robots built on RC car chassis or for larger robots, lawn mower chassis etc. instead I noticed that the teams consisted of a technical type and an athlete. Weird show with only two completions shown per episode.

Anyone else watching this?

Calendar not working

Just noticed this, but the Public Calendar ended 12/31/2010. A while back!


The drop down menu for the year stops at 2010. Probably not really used by anyone but can we get a fix?

Season Passes & To Do lists

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 03/14/2013 - 09:08
This makes lack of Season Pass Manager & To Do list functions missing on the Mini even more confounding:

Using the kmttg RPC remote "Season Passes" function on the Mini it returns the same SPs as querying the host Elite unit. I'm able to re-order SPs, change options etc. all as if I were doing it directly on the Elite.
Same also goes for the "ToDo" list. I'm able to show all upcoming recordings (which match the host Elite unit ToDo list) and cancel shows, etc.

i.e. When querying the Mini for those functions it is just passing along the information from the host unit and everything works as if you were just querying the host unit itself. So since that all seems to work fine it's even more curious why that functionality is missing from the Mini GUI.

TiVo & FIOS - What to expect?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 03/14/2013 - 08:44
I am moving in a week and just purchased my first TiVo. I bought the tivo premiere and a lifetime subscription. In my new house I have already scheduled an appointment to have FIOS Internet and TV setup. I know that TiVo works with FIOS but I’m confused on a few things.

1. The TiVo needs to be connected to the internet so when the FIOS guys come to install will they be able to hook up my TiVo? I’m confused on the whole router situation with FIOS. It sounds like you do not get a standard wireless router with Ethernet ports. I’m worried that they will activate my FIOS then say thanks and leave since I have TiVo and will only be renting a cable card from them. Do I need to do wireless or something or bridge to my Time Capsule (see below)?

2. I have an apple time capsule that I’d like to use. I don’t necessarily need it to act as a wireless router but I need it to backup my iMac. How do I hook it up to backup my iMac? And is it possible to bridge it to the FIOS router? I’m thinking the Time Capsule may give me better wireless speeds than the FIOS router. I’m not extremely tech savy but I can make my way around.

I realize this could have went on a FIOS forum but I trust this forum may be able to provide answers.
Thanks guys, really looking forward to TiVo!

Strange season pass behavior

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 03/14/2013 - 06:50
I have an SP for the FX show 'The Americans' which is set to new only (first-run), unlimited eps, no dupes. Checked the ToDo last night before the show and saw for some reason ALL eps were scheduled including dupes of every showing both last night and next Wednesday. But only for that SP for some reason, and it never did this before on any of my SPs.

Changed the SP to New+repeats, hit OK, saw that nothing changed in ToDo (probably didn't wait long enough). Changed back to New only, moved it down a notch in SP manager to force a reschedule, and everything's back to normal.

Weird that it was only this SP, I'm guessing that it got corrupt somehow. Everything else looks good in ToDo (I have over 60 SPs/ARWLs, about half of which are active now).

S3 to S3 transfer <1MB/s with netgear router

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 03/14/2013 - 02:23

I have two S3 DVRs, two Wireless-G (AG0100) adaptors and a Netgear WNR2000 (wireless N) router.

When I transfer recordings from one to another, I get less than 1MB/s.

It is impossible to watch the copies recording in realtime, owing to the slow transfer rate.

It takes hours to transfer the smallest program (best done over night).

Can anyone help. I apologies up front because this must have been covered before, but I have spent the last four hours sufing the reports and I cannot see the answer.

It used to work fine on my old D-Link wireless G router, bot not now.

All responses gratefully received.



audio hiccup going in/out of Tivo menu?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 03/14/2013 - 02:22
This has been happening since forever when I bought my Premiere two years ago. I assumed it was some limitation in the Flash environment, that they couldn't switch to/from Live TV vs HD Tivo menu (with video preview window) without losing the audio stream.

But now that we have full-screen Guide (since Fall update?) it doesn't lose audio going to/from that seemingly identical HD screen.

Do others experience this same issue, and has Tivo ever addressed it?

playing mp3,s & flac music?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 03/13/2013 - 23:24
can I play my mp3 and flacs that reside on my nas/pc from my TiVo? I think I heard there was an android app so I could cue it from my tablet and have TiVo output music to my amp?

Where can I get the best deal on a tivo remote with the sliding keyboard?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 03/13/2013 - 22:27
anybody know?

seems like the cheapest price i have seen so far is $100.

Any way to get it cheaper than this?


Just got a cable card and tuning adapter...

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 03/13/2013 - 20:23
Put in for my new XL4. I know, I should have done it myself, but they insisted on doing it. I figure if I persisted that they wouldn't give me much help on pairing. Besides, the office is all the ways across town and I worried about having to travel for multiple M cards.

What pisses me off is I know more about this than the tech who claimed to have done many card installations. He knew jack about MOCA. I had to instruct him on installing a splitter BEFORE the tuning adapter after he had lost the MOCA Internet connection. He was flabbergasted that I was "using" the cable company's wires for other than normal TV.

In any event he took quite a while, much of it on the phone. I wonder how I would have fared on the phone.

Tivo HD. Screen says Mind error Internal error: com.tivo.tri...

I forced a connection and rebooted my tivo. Didn't help.

edited to add online chat said if I already forced a connection and rebooted I have to call customer service. Maybe tomorrow.

Verizon No Cable Cards?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 03/13/2013 - 19:53

My son returned home and I wanted to set up the TIVO HD in his bedroom. His TV is Analog only. I have Verizon FIOS in the house. Do I have to have the cable card for the HD Box to receive the non HD Channels?

Just curious before I reactivate the box.

Good Riddance. He and his uncle are nothing alike. Brandon never should have been brought back. What an Ass.

I hope Philip wins now.

strange as my cat like my current Dish Joey as it produces some heat and she curls up next to it LOL

AV Jack Wiring?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 03/13/2013 - 17:41
My mini is on the way, but I will need to use it with a TV that has DVI and stereo audio inputs. I have a HDMI to DMI Cable, but TiVo is not yet listing the cables for the AV port, from which I need to get stereo audio. Does anybody know how the AV jack is wired, in terms of Tip, Ring 1, Ring2, Body?

Streambaby and Mini

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 03/13/2013 - 15:29
I can confirm what was expected that you can't "stream" videos directly to the Mini with streambaby (because it's not really a stream but a copy with 1.1GB buffer limit). However I was able to get streambaby push functionality working. This is similar to pyTivo push where you can select a video to push to a series 4 unit, but you can do everything from the Mini itself and it doesn't rely on pyTivo. Then you can access the transferring show via the Mini, so an indirect way to play archived shows on the Mini.

I've never tried VidMgr which is another HME app which works with pyTivo to select videos to push but I would presume that should work on the Mini as well.

Spring is almost here and new and returning shows are in bloom!
