Premiere questions after reading FAQ

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 12/03/2012 - 10:37
If you can refrain from saying these have been asked before, I have read through the outdated (almost three years) well written FAQ and have the following questions.
I did some additional searching on the more important questions, but I didn't find answers.

In order of importance:

1. Is the 2nd core of the processor enabled yet? As of a year ago, I see it wasn't except for this "Elite" version. If it is, has it sped up the sluggish HD menu? Has it also helped speed up xfers (throughput)?

2. Skip function: Other than the 30 second fast scan, is there some other workaround for the six button routine of the old "skip" function without a fast forward or rewind result?

3. Image caching: Has this been enabled so the system doesn't re-load the images in the Guide?

4. Adding & deleting channels: How do individual channels not in the original scan get added? By just entering the physical channel number, a separate full scan menu entry, or by an "add channel" menu function? Deleted channels are just hidden, not actually removed?

5. CableCards and SDV "tuning adapters". How friendly is this with a TWC system?

6. Adding a 2nd HDD, does the system still "split" the drives making recordings recorded with both drives unaccessible if the 2nd drive is removed? Is there a workaround?

7. WD "MyDVR Expander": Is this only HDD this accepts without whatever mod and/or software those two companies use? Is their workaround available yet?

8. Transfers between the DVR to a PC is allowed, why isn't streaming from one TiVo to another room not?

9. Do these still have ads and just how do they show?

10. Telephone (POTS) connection option: What functions (other than streaming) do you loose with a telephone connection? Is the update once in a 24 hr period? How long does it take?

11. Search: What is meant by "first word" searches? What/who determines the "popularity" of the search results?

12. Does the Premier support DTCP-IP encryption yet?

13. The deleted folder: How much space is reserved & how long are deleted recordings kept?

14. Does "Streambaby" still have the 1.1GB limitation?

15. Does Premiere still Energy Star certified after the stricter regulations went into effect 1/11?

Tivo Loses Video over time

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 12/03/2012 - 08:25
Did some searching for this but didn't find anything like it.

Sometimes I will lose the video/sound output on my Tivo Premiere. I have never experienced the loss of video at the time it occurs so I can't give too many details in that regard.

- Connection to TV is HDMI (occurs with or without HDMI splitter in place)
- TV says 'No Signal'
- Tivo lights appear normal, button presses on the remote are registered on the Tivo (amber light).
- Must reboot Tivo to fix the issue.

It never occurred until a month or so ago, so I would be interested to see a update schedule to find out if the start of the issue coincides with a major/minor update.

Anyone have any thoughts this issue?

TiVo shuts down all other internet

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 12/03/2012 - 07:36
Need help, I had two TiVo series 3's hooked up in my home connected to my network and everything was fine. I was able to transfer shows, surf the web on my laptop (my wife too), everything sync'ed up perfectly. However, I just bought a premier to replace a series 3 and when I connected it and it processed all updates (it accesses the net just fine) it shuts down network access to the rest of the house. No transferring between TiVo's, no surfing on our laptops, no wifi access whatsoever in our house. Could this be a router issue? I am using an old Wireless G router (linksys). Thanks for the help!

Streambaby with ASUS RT-N56U router

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 12/03/2012 - 01:50
I need help getting streambaby working with Asus RT-N56U router.
It was working fine with my old router, I have since upgraded to this new router.
My Tivo can connect to internet and other network functions work (Netflix, youtube, etc.)
I understand I might need to enable multi-cast in router. There are several settings in an "IPTV" tab, I have tried to "enable multi-cast routing" but it does not seem to work.

If anyone has gotten Asus RT-N56U to work with streambaby, can you please post the router settings?

Thanks,

I haven't watched the first segment yet but I liked 2nd and 3rd segment.

I've seen numerous documentaries on NK before. This is probably about the most detail I've heard about the life in prison camps there. Horrible!

I really hope the NK government does fall someday in the near future so the people there can see how they've been duped and how the rest of the world lives.

Tivo & Netflix problems, again

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 12/02/2012 - 22:01
This is a new variety of the typical Tivo/Netflix issue that I have seen
with my Series 3 HD Tivo.

My S3 is running 11.0K, which I believe is the latest OS version.

I'm able to watch a 45 minute Netflix show through my Tivo, but when I
go to view another episode, I can't connect to Netflix through the Tivo.
(my Tivo is connected via wired ethernet to the router)

This has happened several times this week. I've called Netflix, they said they
were not having any issues. In fact, I got through to them instantly, and there were no other people calling in.

Netflix said I should remove my Netflix account from my Tivo, but in order to do that, I have to be able to connect with Netflix.

I've rebooted my router and restarted my Tivo.
After Tivo restarted, I was able to connect with Netflix and watch a show.

After that show had completed, I tried watching another episode, same problem occurred.

I hope I don't have to restart my Tivo every time I want to watch Netflix.
Not sure what to do now, I guess I'll call Tivo tomorrow to see what they say.

At the same time that I"m having these problems with the Tivo-Netflix combo, I'm able to stream Netflix on my Mac via wifi. This tells me the router is ok.

Is anyone else having a similar issue- with OS version 11.0K?

I read some older posts from several years ago where people had the same issue.
I'm surprised to see it's still happening.

Cannot Queue Up Shows to Transfer

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 12/02/2012 - 21:58
Hello:

i just bought a Tivo Premiere XL4 and am trying to transfer shows from my older Tivo HD XL to my premiere. I can only transfer one show at a time. The Tivo Premiere allows me to go in to my other tivo and look at the other shows and click on one, and after a slight delay, the screen will load but when I try and click on transfer show, the screen freezes up. If I click the back arrow or the tivo button, it allows me to go back to the other screen. No matter how many times I try, I cannot queue up any shows. I have a lot of shows I wanted to transfer and was wondering if there was an answer.

i have read about this problem on other threads that were posted over 6 months ago. Has anyone figured out a fix for this or should I call Tivo?

Thank you very much to anyone who can help!!

Best wireless N router to work with TiVo

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 12/02/2012 - 21:51
I've been using a WRT54G-TM (TMobile @ Home) wireless router, but we are leaving Tmobile and I'd like to upgrade to a faster router. And the one we had seems to have issues with the TiVo iPad app. If you reboot the TiVo it shows up for a while but within an hour or two, it can no longer be seen on the network. I'd like to avoid that on the new router. Any help would be appreciated.

I'm a little surprised they never did a perimeter sweep of the prison and found that rather gaping hole in their defenses. Unless they went to the 24 school of hard perimeters...

Premiere with all front lights blinking

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 12/02/2012 - 16:57
So my premiere seems to died. Tuners stopped picking up signal a few weeks ago. But everything else worked fine so I left it running and was streaming all od the recording off of it to other tivos.

Unplugged it to make room for new Tivo. When plugging it back in goes Immediately to all front lights blinking simultaneously

It had a 6month old TB drive in it. Tried with Original stock drive with same results.

Only thing I can think is Power Supply or Something else on Motherboard.
Took these pics of the Power Supply. Does anybody see anything that could be the problem?

Might upgrade to Premiere XL4 - questions

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 12/02/2012 - 15:11
I currently have two TiVo HD boxes with upgraded 1TB drives. One is in the living room, one in the bedroom. My living room box has a majority of my primary/favorite season passes and has lifetime. The bedroom box only gets a primetime season pass when there's a 3 or 4 way conflict on the living room, and is grandfathered in at 6.95/month.

My cable company is Buckeye Cablesystem, I have 1 M-Card and a tuning adapter for each box. I have been successful in the past moving a cablecard from one box to another, and getting it re-paired over the phone.

I have the opportunity to buy a TiVo Premier XL4 for about $270
I'm thinking of putting the XL4 in the living room. Since lifetime isn't transferable, and I don't believe I can do a TSN swap on the 6.95/month subscription for a premiere (correct me if I'm wrong), I would at least initially, do the 12.99/month with MSD. Since all the boxes would be active at the same time, I would use tivo.com to move all of my season passes from both HD boxes to the XL. Then, until the TiVo mini materializes, keep one box in the bedroom for MRV (Yes I know the limitations, for me it's just HBO & BBC America), and sell the other.

But, before take the plunge and spend money on myself at Christmas time, I have a few questions.

1) I know the XL4 is for digital cable only. I'm not 100% sure all of my channels are digital. There are still a few channels in the 2-70 range that are not offered in HD yet. My understanding was that many cable companies send out a digital version of their analog channels which cable boxes & cable cards tune to, in addition to the analog signal. I tuned to several of the low number cable channels, then went into the DVR diagnostics screen to check if it was analog or digital. So far, they all say "Modulation: QAM 256".
Am I looking in the right spot? That's what I want to see, right?

2) I already have Ethernet network drops in both rooms, which are connected to a separate switch, which is then connected to the router. (Helps keep TiVo network traffic separate from wireless/Internet traffic). If I understand correctly, the XL4 can act as a MOCA bridge. So, in theory, when the TiVo mini comes out, I could use the MOCA connection. My question is, which connection is better? I'm leaning towards using the Ethernet connection for the mini, and connect the cable line directly to the TV for those rare time I might (gasp) watch actual live tv. Thoughts?

3) If I bought the premiere 4 instead of the XL4 and upgraded the hard drive myself, would it be worth it? It looks like the 4 runs about $150 less than the XL, and 2TB drives run about $100. Sounds like I would lose THX and only save at most $50. Am I missing anything? Thoughts?

4) Are there any rumors about a new box coming out in 2013 other than the TiVo mini? I would hate to buy the XL4 then find out if I would have waited a couple months, I could have gotten a 6 tuner box, or one that has additional hardware/features.

Sorry this is such a long post, but I have tried to answer any "follow-up" questions in advance. Thanks for taking the time to read my post, and any replies. :)

Fios phone tech says HBO not possible with S3

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 12/02/2012 - 12:38
After spending 2 hours trying to get my new HBO subscription with Verizon FiOS to work on my OLED Series3, the tech spoke to some other department who told him its just not possible for me to get the channels to work on this model. He said its not a matter of encryption, but the fact that HBO channels are the only ones to use the MPEG4 format or something. Is this BS? I got HBO without a problem with Cablevision, and with FiOS I get Showtime with no issues (as well as Starz, Cinemax, etc. whenever they have free previews).

He advised me to call TiVo, but I don't see what they can do. Help?
