Differences between Series 3 models

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 07/18/2013 - 03:37

I was wondering what the difference is between the TCD65216 and the TCD648250B. Do both have slots for a cable card? I was looking at pictures of the TCD652160 and it did not see a cable card slot in the back. Did I miss it, or is there really one not there?

Also, which model is the more recent model? Or did they come out at the same time?

I am just trying to see which model is the "best model" for watching and recording HD tv. In your guys' opinion, which one is the better model to get (regardless of HDD size).

Tivo DVR & Computer need Ethernet

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 07/17/2013 - 23:59
I have a D-Link router DIR-615/RE rated at 802l11b/g/n, a Motorola SB6121 Surfboard cable modem.

Right now I have my Tivo DVR connected to my router using Ethernet cabling so the DVR and Tivo can talk to one another.

I have my laptop computer connected to the Internet using WiFi through the router and modem.

Question # 1: Would streaming videos be better qualityif my computer was connected using Ethernet cabling instead of WiFi?

I need to keep my Tivo DVR connected via Ethernet.

Question #2: If I run an Ethernet cable from the router to my computerhow do I set up my router to feed Ethernet signals to my DVR and my computer?

Please let me know if I need to include additional info. Thanks.

Tivo to a Samsung PN60F5500

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 07/17/2013 - 23:24
Just purchased a Samsung Smart TV. Got everything working, even the remote.
My question is this... What would be the best way to connect it to the tv? Should I connect it by HDMI to HDMI input 1, or should I connect it by a coax cable to the coax input? BTW, I'm watching my programming by just OTA, and the internet. If anyone that has had this dilemma, you might know why I'm asking. Any takers... Thanks for any input.

Can cable operators downgrade the video quality of digital channels

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 07/17/2013 - 21:48
My question is do cable operators have the option to lower the bitrate of digital channels, thus lowering the video quality.

Hypothetical example: HBO's source feed might be 720p at 8Mbits per second, but the cable operator decides to lower it to 720p at 5Mbits per second in order accommodate all the channels and add more. At 5Mbit it would still look good, but if were compared to the original feed, people could see the difference.

Years ago I had a TVRO system, and the signal was so clean it was as good as anything on DVD or better. I know it was only 480i, but it was perfectly clean signal coming from the source. I remember watching Star Trek: The next generation off satellite, and it made cable TV look like VHS tape because quality was downgraded by the time it reached my house over cable.

tivo series 3, youtube cannot login

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 07/17/2013 - 21:03
I cannot seem to login to my youtube account on my Series 3 DVR.

I tried at least 3 different user name combinations: my gmail email address, my youtube user/screen name, and my gmail/google user name (same as email).

I thought maybe because I possibly had a different password associated with my youtube account before google and youtube merged.

Finally is it be possible... I think YouTube changed their login procedures. They want people sign in with your google account instead of your youtube user name.

What is wrong here? Is youtube to blame?

Pixelation/noise - Snr - Signal Strength

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 07/17/2013 - 19:19
I've had some recent pixelation/noise on both my 2-XL and my 4 - XL with Comcast/Motorola and NO TA. Using CableCard diagnostics I seem to have consistent 30 SNR and 76 or 77 Signal strength and of course I've restarted both machines. I've swapped the home runs at an amp that I use with taps and no splitters.

I use a home run to each location with a tap and a lead to the television direct and the second to the TiVo. Each home run is equal length. I've by-passed the amp and eliminated my modem from the mix and did the TV/TiVo's direct with no change.

My SB6120 displays 36 dB across all four channels and -1 dBV & -2 dBV PowerLevel "down"!

Is it conceivable that a "hit" on the CableCards would help the siuation or do I just need to approach Comcast for a check of the "drop to the house"?

I've never had issues and best I recall my signal strengths on the install when the 4 tuners were released were 90+ at the TiVo's and the televisions.

The connection at the grounding block was done when I did the original install and appears fine.

Channel list

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 07/17/2013 - 18:19
I have a TiVo Premiere, and I have what is either a wish, or something that's doable but I don't know how:

I want the TiVo to automatically scan the entire CableCARD-from-Comcast channel list, check the channels I'm authorized for, and uncheck those for which I am not.

Is this doable? Does TiVo want to implement this? I'll take a TiVo employee out to lunch if they program this in. :-)

2013 MLB All-Star Game Top Moments and TV Auto Ratings

TiVo Blog - Wed, 07/17/2013 - 17:37
The All-Star Game has become an all-important battle that decides home-field advantage for the World Series. There has been continuous debate on whether or not this should be so. Some argue that the game should be a fun, semi-competitive show of athletic ability and talent. Others believe that the high stakes atmosphere creates an intense form of competition to decide which league possesses the best and most collaborative players. It is significant to understand the league that secures home-field advantage has won four out of the last five World Series. Continue Reading

Keith Olbermann to host new show on ESPN2, Premieres Aug. 26

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 07/17/2013 - 12:59
This is rather surprising. Keith Olbermann has rejoined the ESPN family and will host an hour show entitled Olbermann on ESPN2 that will premiere August 26 at 11 pm ET.


Interesting to note that he won't be in Bristol; the show will broadcast from the ABC/Disney Times Square Studios. Wonder if that's because the guys in Bristol don't want him there, or that he didn't want to go there? :)

I wonder how long this will last before it goes down in grand and glorious flames, as have all of the rest of Olbermann's shows?

A World Without CableCARD

Zatz Not Funny! - Wed, 07/17/2013 - 10:38

The CEA, TiVo and Public Knowledge continue to hammer the FCC, due to the government agency’s bungled Charter waiver, and appeal to the body that “its regulations be reinstated.” Some choice quotes: By misreading the law, the FCC took away your ability to buy alternative set-top boxes like Tivo and Smart TVs. We think that’s wrong. (Public Knowledge) [...]

Little known facts about setup that most Tivo support personnel don't know

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 07/17/2013 - 05:40
Mike's review linked below summarized some interesting info on a 'zero-tuner' Mini set-up...
  • Set-up requires allocation of a live tuner followed by deallocation
  • The Premiere 4/XL4 doesn't have MoCA enabled by default
  • The Premiere 4/XL4 can stream recorded programs to three different Mini's and still be recording four programs at the same time


My Tivo Premiere -- Loosing Faith

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 07/17/2013 - 05:25
I bought the premiere 2 years ago on the $0 down or maybe it was $19.99 don't remember.

I have been a avid Tivo user and supporter since October 2006.

However Im loosing much faith in Tivo lately and I just need to put it out there.

Tivo needs to step up their game considerably, fact the HD interface is slow argue the point or not IT IS slow. There is simply no reason for this to happen Tivo says its alot of information transferring.. well not really for a dual core CPU plus its simply not that graphic intensive in the first place.

The remote with my new premiere didnt work at all but They replaced it 2 weeks later and has now faded and all the keys are unreadable now, my original Tivo Romote... still looks fine (cheap build)

Now Netflix is acting up I can barely watch anything without a screen freeze lack of response on buttons etc.

Cable company's are catching up with features, Dish and DirecTV already arguably have a better system in place or will so in a few more versions.

Tivo if you are making another device soon, please for gods sake consider my suggestions:

1. Radio signal based remote STANDARD (its cheap roku does it for under $60 box) no more pressing buttons 10 times for tivo to catch it.

2. Fix the damn interface NO more excuses you have had at least 4 years to address this.

3. No more useless channels (I guess this is more of my opinon) but we want Amazon Prime not AOL garbage that doesnt work or MLB.tv

Wish List or WTF list.

1. Steam box.. Extra charge... ridiculous $5 ... but still come on Tivo you are already charging me $15 for a TV guide.

Tivo I would hate to see you go out of business and I dont think it will be anytime soon.... but if you keep up with these low standards its going to be a rough road.

**Thats all I have to say, feel free to flame or comment***

Tivo and Comcast channels not syncing up since updates

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 07/17/2013 - 01:16
So while I was out of town over the last week or so Tivo and Comcast conspired to screw up the channel's.. Channels have been moved around and not all the guide information is correct any more.. I have tried going through the guided setup twice now to make sure the info is correct but channel names don't match what is actually on some channels which is wreaking havoc with my season passes because they think they are recording one thing but end up recording something else completely different. The two main channels I have noticed this on so far are HBOHD which is actually HBOPDH and AMCHD which is apparently some kids channel now??

WTH Tivo/Comcast???

has anyone else noticed this?? is there something I can do to get everything back to normal??

P.S. The NetFlix implementation on the Tivo is HORRID!!!
