WD low power spinup utility

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 05/23/2013 - 16:44
Looking at a post on wdidle3, I found a link to a related western digital utility that enables low power spinup and super low power spinup. I was wondering if anyone had used these on their tivo drives?

So our tuning adapter crapped out last night and this didn't record fully. I guess I can watch on ABC.com...

How was it? :)

Tivo Update Last Night

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 05/23/2013 - 12:57
Anybody know what the update was that got pushed last night? I happened to be up about 3:15 AM and every Tivo was updating (recording light on but no show being recorded) - even the S2.

Lifetime Premier, Upgraded w/ new 2TB EURS drive Starting $399, BIN $550

Just put up one of two Lifetimed 2-tuner Premieres in pristine shape. Each has a brand new 2TB WD EURS drive (april 2013 mfg). Starting bid is $399, or Buy in Now for $550.

Second one will go up over the weekend.

I also have a non-lifetimed S2 (early model), and a non-lifetimed S2DT (which I will be upgrading to 200 GB), and 2 Sony SAT-T60s (upgraded) that I am getting rid of. PM me if you are interested in any of these.

As a huge fan of Fringe, I have to say this is the show I am looking forward to the most. Hopefully, it is well done and has a decent audience and it can tell the story the creators want to tell.

Here is the trailer:


shark tank 5 17 13

i hope right date. it's the grilled cheese one

i love how those guys put the sharks in their place. we have over 1 mill in sales so there (insert stickout tongue smiley).

the dog food...well...i was impressed the kid knew his numbers

the dating site girl...i think the owner being available is brilliant..guys will pay for the chance to date her lol. but i sure wouldnt ever want to invest in a dating site. and what was that..1000 for 3 dates...craziness. and 100 per month i guess keeps out the riff raff..or at least the poor ones. i think we really missed a lot here due to the edit

the language thing was also pretty interesting, i had no idea mark was so diversified. i'm assuming the market for this kind of thing is pretty good so hope it does well.

There were certainly some interesting characters and offerings! From beaver tail to alligator to bear to crickets.

I loved the 'Mad & cheese with a twist."
What's the twist?
Breast milk.

Deadliest Catch - OAD 5/21/2013

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 05/23/2013 - 07:29
Wow! No thread? What happened?

Some points...

Elliot gets screwed by Junior. I've no sympathy for Elliot, but that's TWO people Junior has pissed off this season! I'm not sure if he realized that when the show aired (if not before), they would know what he's done!

Edgar has a real decision to make. He has no choice but to fire Jake. There's no doubt that Jake lost it and threw the first punch. However, he's been with the Hansens forever and the job offer would almost certainly be withdrawn when it becomes known that he has a temper! Of course, they're keeping us waiting to know the outcome.

can a mini coexist with a Series 3?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 05/23/2013 - 06:58
I'm sure this has been answered elsewhere, but I am assuming a mini can't interact at all with a Series 3 Tivo, correct? I'm thinking mainly because a Series 3 can only do multi-room "transferring" and not "streaming". Is this about right or can the mini interact with a Series 3 somehow in another way?

I have a few Series 3 lifetimes that are basically just being used as cable boxes in a basement. Not heavily used, but I do use their storage to record some shows. Free up space on my main level Premieres. Then multi-room transfer as needed over my (hard wired) home network.

If I had a 4-tuner Premiere and mini in my set-up, the mini would not then be able to view ANY material recorded on any of the Series 3, right? I realize I could probably "transfer" content from a Series 3 to a Premiere and then "stream" it from the Premiere to a mini, but is there maybe some other functions the mini can do with a Series 3?

Brighthouse CableCard Firmware Update

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 05/23/2013 - 00:43
I was just watching Disney Junior with my daughter when a strange popup occurred on Tivo, A firmware update is available and starting now. So far, holding at 0% Completed. I wonder what is going on now. Are we unblocking channels or locking the rest of the 100 and below out.

Last message indicated "Image Block Collection Completed"
Flashing Memory now..

Other then the Cisco cablecard functioning I don't see any physical changes to indicate a problem or issue to block additional recording. Everything on 102 TheHub is protected and so is Sprout.:confused:

Nashville "I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive" (5/22/13, Spoilers)

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 05/22/2013 - 22:12
Ok, I know we have the "anyone still watching" thread, but it technically isn't tagged as a spoiler zone, so I figured I'd start a thread for this week's episode.

Ok, that wasn't the actual GMAs, but either they got the actual set pieces from the 2012 GMAs or built exact replicas. The only thing they got wrong was that the triangle steps were center stage, not in front of the "performance" stages. (The other nice touch was that they got Carrie Underwood, one of the real hosts of the 2012 GMAs, to do the voice-over introduction.) It certainly was a pretty convincing reproduction, that's for sure.

I really liked Juliette's GMA dress.

Why the hell didn't Coleman go through Deacon's place while he was out cold and dump the booze?

Well, that Deacon's behavior certainly explains why Rayna didn't want him around Maddie. It also explains her comment about "breaking every stick of furniture."

Huh. For rumors that seemed to indicate a loud explosion, that certainly wasn't. Although, I suppose that they might have used some sort of a pyrotechnic charge to get the car to flip, then edited that out, and the charge was what they were referring to. The other potential is that they said that there would be a big explosion to make sure people would stay away, so they would not be able to reveal the big ending to the episode.

TIVO.COM issues!

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 05/22/2013 - 18:50
For the past 2 days I get errors on the site when I try to schedule a show or look at my to do lists, etc. It says to try again. This does not work for about 15 minutes, then all is OK for a few hours.

Am I the only one seeing this?

Bates Motel - S01E10 - Midnight

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 05/22/2013 - 17:08
I'm not sure why I like this series as much as I do. It is paced much more slowly than the shows I'm typically drawn to. It's almost languid, yet the craziness just under the surface keeps me tuning in. Reflecting back, I got much the same feeling from the show "Invasion" during its limited run. Has Bates Motel been picked up for a second season? It feels like not all that much happened in this one, looking back.

I wasn't at all surprised by the teacher's fate, but the show played it off like a shocking and unexpected reveal. I remember LOST used to do that, too. I wonder if that's just a Carlton Cuse thing. I noticed her B necklace, so she was the "other woman" of Bradley's father's affair, but I'm not sure why exactly we're supposed to care. I guess that will be explored more next season.

I don't mean to come across as being down on the series - it is actually my favorite new series, I think.

Commercial Lengths

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 05/22/2013 - 12:11
Hi Everyone !!
Does anyone know the commercial lengths for 30 minute and 60 minute shows. I'd like to take advantage of the 30 second skip feature on the TiVo, but have discovered that even though a program may be 30 minutes or 60 minutes, the length of the commercials seems to vary. Any ideas ? Cheers !!
