Can you tell on the Program Description if the movie or program is being broadcast in 5.1? I only see "Dolby Digital" when I go down to Dolby ICON.

Upgrade series 3 HD

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 06/30/2013 - 06:52
I have an odd problem. I have a Series3 HD 32hr Model tcd648250B. I have three older hard drives that are 1 tb 1 tb and 240 g. They all boot up fine in the tivo. I am trying to put a brand new wd green 1 tb in this unit. I have tried winmsf copy and backup and restore to the new drive and when I put the new drive in, the tivo first splash screen shows up and never goes any further then this. The lights on the front stay on and never change. I even bought the instant back for this unit and baked the new wd hard drive and have the same effect. I hear lots about power supplies, but the other three older hd's boot fine. I have also tried mfslive 1.4 backup/restore and same effect. Any suggestions?

Shows not deleting from or showing up in My Shows list

Premiere Elite, 20.3.1-01-2-758

I've been having an issue with programs not deleting from My Shows and newly recorded shows not showing up.

When I go to delete something, it will just put the X next to the show but it will not move to the deleted folder. New programs do not show up in My Shows and there is even no history of them being recorded.

I can restart the TiVo and then everything works right for a while. All the shows that it had recorded but were not being listed now show up. It is normal for a period of time, sometimes very short, sometimes a few hours, and then has the issue again.

When this happens, it won't let me create, delete or change season passes.

Anyone have any experience with this? It's been happening for a month or so, possibly since the most recent update. Getting very frustrating. Thought I would come here first before trying my luck with tech support. Thanks.

Tivo blinking off then back on

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 06/30/2013 - 01:16
Every time I go from our TV input to Tivo input the TV Display will blink off then back on once. This will happen if I first go to 'Live TV' or 'Menu'.

It has been happening for the last couple of days.

Anyone else having this issue?

Storage Space Question - Amazon VOD files

Been awhile since I used a Premier. I would often buy HD TV Shows on Amazon and either manual or auto download (tv pass) to my premier, but I had an XL.

Was kinda curious how many one hour HD episodes I could fit on the standard 500gig drive.

Formula 1 British Grand Prix - alert for Comcast folk

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 06/29/2013 - 13:11
Noticing on the xfinity listings that tomorrow's race (7:30 am ON CNBC) is incorrectly listed as a track and field event, so if you have a season pas set for "Formula One Racing", you might miss it. There are reruns later on NBCSN that are listed correctly, but still.

Stream on EBay

Current listing on eBay for 104.99 or best offer. 7 units are still available am 6/29/2013. They are listed with free shipping and no tax outside of Illinois. I got one for less than the listing price by emailing the vendor and negotiating. The unit arrived in two days by priority mail. It's a brand new item and I had it up and running in less than an hour after the postman delivered it.

TivoHD -> Premiere 4 - Netflix blackouts

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 06/28/2013 - 19:26
I recently replaced my tivoHD with a premiere 4 due to mpeg 4 streams. I still don't have my m cablecard but I'm watching netflix and every few minutes the screen turns blank, not audio for like a half a second. I never had this issue on my tivoHD. It's incredibly annoying. Is this a known issue or is there a problem with my Internet connection?

I can't stop rewatching 'Malcolm In The Middle'

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 06/28/2013 - 18:50
The last week I've been watching marathon sessions of Malcolm In The Middle, from the beginning. I just finished Season 4 Episode 10 right now and am about to move to episode 11.

I miss this show so much. I haven't seen a single bad episode yet.

I can't believe US releases of the show on disc, other than season 1, are still held up, allegedly, by excessive music licensing costs. There's so little music actually in the episodes. It's at least good to see the folks in the UK are finally getting a chance to see it though.

Moving from Comcast to DirecTV. Need some guidance!

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 06/28/2013 - 18:01
Hello All,

I currently have one each of a Series 1, Series 2 (both Sonys) and the original Series 3 TiVo w/ 2 cable cards, all working with my Comcast. Both the Series 1 and Series 2 are using Comcast's Digital Adapters, receiving more than just the basic channels. I can use my TiVo remotes with them, and all works just fine.

Except for the Comcast pricing.

I was looking at what all my neighbors have: DirecTV, but none of them have TiVos... just the DirecTV company's current DVR.

Here's what I would like to know...

If I jump the Comcast ship, I can get the DirecTivo HD for (I believe) $199.

What would I need to do for the other TV's upstairs? I would only want very limited channels... equivalent to basic. I'd have to give the Comcast Digital Adapters back.

Is there such a thing as plugging in the coax from the Directv into the back of the Series 1 and Series 2 to get ANYTHING at all? I could be wrong, but I thought I remembered seeing, during the start-up process, a choice for DirecTV... but maybe not.

If the regular coax won't produce any results, what is the DirecTV equivalent to the Comcast Digital Adapter? Something bare minimum (Comcast charged me $0.50 each for theirs) just to get the basics up and running on that TiVo.

Lastly... do any of these boxes need a phone line to update, or am I thinking about something else altogether.

I've been a long-time member of this forum, helping whenever I could.... now it's time that I need to ask for help! And, of course, thanks in advance!!!

series 2 won't boot up

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 06/28/2013 - 16:41
I got a R10 that suddenly gives the message "powering up" and then "just a few more minutes" and when it normally goes to Directv is comes back with "no signal". The green light is on but will not communicate. I attached a rf satellite finder and booted up with it inline. This is the first time I used this meter. Could I have shorted out the power supply or does this sound like something else?

Networked TiVo's not showing up in each other's Now Playing

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 06/28/2013 - 15:53
Seems to be related to the software settings at tivo.com as far as I can tell.

I have rebooted both systems and when they come up, they can see each other in the Now Playing list and shows transfer just fine. But, give it a few minutes after the reboot for them to ping tivo.com again and then it goes away from the NP list.

Any ideas?

This has been working for a long time, so I'm not sure what's up.

Guide showing "Upcoming:" on most of the channels

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 06/28/2013 - 14:19
I've been manually connecting to TIVO to download the guide for a few weeks now off my iPhone hotspot since I lost my home wifi (long story) and I have to keep manually doing it 5 or 6 times until it goes through however a few days ago the guide is showing with lots of channels displaying "Upcoming: (then the name of some show)" on most of the channels.

I restarted the TIVO Premiere and downloaded the guide again but still the same thing. Anyone else having this happen to them?

How do you connect your Tuning Adapter?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 06/28/2013 - 11:08
I have split my coax signal between my Tivo and the required Cisco TA with the USB being the only connection between the two devices.

I had a blank screen even and called Tivo tech support. After going through the paces and verifying the connections, the CSR suggested removing the splitter and connecting the coax to TA in series before the Tivo. I took that suggestion under advisement and retained my setup. I had be advised that the splitter within the Cisco TA is inferior to high quality stand alone splitters.

So how do you make the tuning adapter connection?

People can’t stop talking about this summer’s new hit – the mini-series “Under the Dome.” Kicking off last Sunday on CBS with the suspenseful first installment of a 13-part series, the Stephen King adaption is not likely to disappoint. We watched as the residents of Chester’s Mill panic as they realize they have become suddenly trapped under a mysterious and impenetrable dome.

Can I put the P4 anywhere to start MoCA?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 06/28/2013 - 07:49
Have Ethernet & Coax wiring to every room in the house. Going to setup P4 & Mini's around the house tomorrow.

To enable MoCA on the P4:

1) can I just put p4 in any room or does it have to be at the patch panel where all the house's low voltage wiring run through & where router & modem are at?

2) Currently use Tivo's wireless N adapter but is it removed from the MoCA setup per TiVo Diagram - how do I get TiVo information now? Do I have to somehow connect P4 to the router in #1 above?
