Tivo2 Dual Tuner work like a T2 Single tuner wtih Cablebox (no clearQuam)

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 10/20/2012 - 18:41
Comcast is making channels 2-13 encrypted in my area. I have a TS2 Dual tuner with a STB attached. When comcast went from allowing 2-99 to 2-12 in clearQuam, the DT still wanted to use the 2nd tuner to record stuff on 13 and Higher even though I had told it these channels are "box".

Now with me LOSING channels 2-12 (clearQuam is going away), the 2nd tuner is worthless, or is?

Anyway I can record OTA HD using a 3rd party box and antenna. I have the comcast set top box being controlled via serial port. Good old motorola box.

If the old S2DT can't control two boxes (probably can't due to age) if I set every channel to "box" will that work?

Or is there another way to do this. I have over 50 season passes and don't want to re-enter them. I can see the DT trying to record network TV 2-12 on the box and on the built-in tuner.

Thanks

Should I ditch my Stream for Sling?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 10/20/2012 - 16:01
I think I may not be in the key Stream "demographic". I don't care about transfering shows to my iPad for offline viewing because I stay pretty current on my DVR when I am home. I also have zero interest in using my iPad to watch shows around the house... I have TVs for that. What I wanted was streaming when I am not at home or on vacation. I have a VPN setup and can "fool" the Stream app into working (by not completely closing the app before leaving my home network and not reopening till I am on a WiFi VPN) but I do not know how long the app will stay fooled as a longer-term solution.

As far as I know, the Sling only has one real draw-back... that if you are using the Sling, that STB cannot (or *should* not) be used by someone who is local trying to do something else. Well, I have a guest room TiVo that is used once or twice a year but it is still on my home network. So, why not just setup the Sling on THAT box and I can watch live TV uninterrupted and since that TiVo is on my home network, I can navigate to my XL4 to view recorded shows. I realize this solution may not work for everyone but it certainly seems to fit my needs.

The new Sling 350 is only $30 more than the Stream. I don't think I need the HDMI for iPad viewing, and some shows can't pass via HDMI anyway.

Thoughts?

series 1 enable serial problem

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 10/20/2012 - 13:19
I have a philips HDR312 with instantcake on it. I tried to enable serial from the script on the first page of the thread linked below. serial/ir option does not appear.

It is the thread in archive 2 titled: Have 3.0 and a digital cable box? read this...
I followed the directions from eyemcrazy post on page 4.
I made a few adjustments based on my limited Linux experience. (mainly mounting)
Upon first boot of tivo, the little startup video did not play. Upon subsequent boots, it does.

The serial.tlc file saved as ansi under windows notepad. should I have saved it as unicode or utf8 instead?

Two days later and no episode thread. Did everybody bail on this show already?

I thought this episode was very good. I have no complaints at all. Well, except that the hot geologist lady should have told the XO what Serrat is up to. And that Serrat still lives.

A general thought is why Chaplin never enlisted the Navy Seals help in whacking Serrat. They wouldn't be happy that a local thug murdered a US soldier. I'm betting that three Seals would make short work of eliminating Serrat and his boys.

Sputtering Jerky recordings on Premiere

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 10/20/2012 - 05:23
We just bought a new TV - Vizio 60-inch E601i-A3 - a brand new LED enhanced LCD model http://store.vizio.com/via-hdtvs/e601ia3.html

Upgraded from - Mitsubishi 57-inch DLP (projection TV) WD-57732 http://reviews.cnet.com/projection-tvs/mitsubishi-wd-57732

The resolution of this new TV is SO GOOD that every single flaw in the video recording and/or production is glaringly obvious.

Since the install of this new TV - we're now noticing LOTS of video sputtering, jerkiness and sync issues on our TiVo Premiere recordings.
This is not the case with live TV. It's not constant in the recordings - sometimes it goes along smoothly - but it's frequent and random enough to be extremely disturbing.

We use the TiVo as our main tuner/cablebox (w/cablecard). It's a little tough to move the Tivo from one TV to the other to make sure the recordings sputter on each - but I've used iPad w/TiVo Stream and also see it on there. This leads me to believe it's the TiVo itself thats the problem - we just never noticed it so much before on the DLP screen - but now with the higher resolution it's obvious.

Our Premiere is not upgraded or hacked - it's the base model HDD - and runs around 80% full most of the time. We use it for almost everything we watch (to time shift shows and skip commercials) so it's used heavily.

And ideas on how to fix this sputtering???

Further testing - My next step is to simultaneously record the exact same show(s) (and cable feed) on EyeTV and TiVo and compare the recordings. To date, I've not seen any problems in EyeTV recordings however - so this would confirm the issue is absolutely not coming from the cable company.

image test maybe

well that didn't work

PYtivo suddenly not working on HD and series 3

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 10/20/2012 - 00:32
Has anyone had this issue before? The program used to work fine I could push video (download) to the tivo or stream from the PC. Now the folder shows up but is blank. It was appearing for a while with only the stream capability before it disappeared all the way.

Any fixes for this? I have tried reboots of the tivos as well as the pytivo program. Besides that nothing has changed since this was installed over a year ago i believe.

Thanks

Stream + Slingbox 500 works!

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 10/19/2012 - 23:42
Just wanted to let folks know that my Premiere with Stream and the new Slingbox 500 all works together. No need for IR blaster either.

The image quality of the Stream is much better on the new iPad compared to the Slingbox feed on local WiFi.

Thought others would be interested as I didn't see any info here.

pyHME

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 10/19/2012 - 21:43
I've been fighting this for a while so thought I'd post it out there to see what I'm missing. It seems really simple but I can't figure it out.

I've got Win 7 64bit. 32 bit version of Python 2.6, 32 bit version of Python Image Library.

I've had pyTivo up and running for a while and everything works great there.

Trying to get pyHME going so that I can use Vidmgr. I've got pyHME copied and downloaed to c:\pytivo\pyhme. My pyHME config.ini file:

[hmeserver]
datapath=c:\
apps=clock vidmgr animate

I'm doing all this from the cli. I've tried running both with and without the config file in place. When it's up and running I can telnet to localhost on port 9042. I've also tried with the Windows Firewall disabled.

The problem is that when I go into the Tivo's (XL4 Elite and Premiere XL) they don't see the HME in the Showcase/Video section. I've tried about a million different things and just can't get it.

I've also got vidmgr2 downloaded but since HME isn't working I'm not yet at the point of trying to test it. According to the latest help files the tivos section needs to go into the vidmgr config file so I've removed it from the hme config.ini (tried it both with and without).

Output from the CLI:

C:\pytivo\pyhme>start.py
HME Server for Python 0.20
Fri Oct 19 20:40:44 2012 PyTivo Video Manager version 2.1b module initializing
Cache file does not exist - no thumbnails loaded
Fri Oct 19 20:40:44 2012 Server Starts
Registering: animate
Registering: clock
Registering: vidmgr

Feel like I'm missing something simple. Any ideas?

standing in front satellite causes reboot

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 10/19/2012 - 19:33
I have a Series 2 TIVO and blocking the satellite signal for a few seconds causes a reboot. Is there anything that could cause this other than a faulty recorder?

Thanks

Can record but no live

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 10/19/2012 - 18:41
I originally posted in this in the wrong forum.

Just had a very strange problem with my TivoHD. I could record and play back shows, see all the Tivo menus and the program guide but no live TV on any of the outputs.

Tivo tech said the cable card menue was saying the multi stream card wasn't programed. Tech called Comcast and they said the cable cards werent on my account. Gave the Comcast tech all the info and they repaired the cards to the Tivo and I got my live TV back.

Turns out when I had called Comcast earlier in the day with a billing question they some how lost the cards. What I dont understand was how I could record programs and play them back but not watch them live.

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 10/19/2012 - 16:46
I've been a customer since 2004 and needed to upgrade to a premiere or move to a cable DVR due to a migration to MPEG-4 transition at our cable co. I figured I'd call and explain my situation. Our cable DVR is actually cheaper than Tivo service on a new unit so I assumed they would try to sell me a premiere and I'd try to get grandfathered in on my plan. There was absolutely no attempt to keep me as a customer. I called and was cancelled within 5 minutes.

Bravo for making cancellation easy but I would have been an easy customer to retain. I'm not sure I understand their business model.

Has anyone heard about the quality of this show? It starts tonight and before I have Max turned on I would like to know if it is going to be worth 9 bucks a month.

THR-22 and NewKinetix Compatibility?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 10/19/2012 - 14:40
Hi,

Anyone know if the NewKinetix Re controller for the iPad/iPhone etc. supports the Tivo THR-22-100 as a remote emulator?

I also tried the L5 Technology emulator and it will not "Learn" the button functions of the THR-22's remote (infrared to infrared), apparently due to a different IR technology than that which the L5 is based on*. Specifically I've been informed that the THR-22 remote uses an LED technology other than the so-called "Phillips-Pronto," for which I am not knowledgable.

This leads to concerns as to whether or not the NewKinetix controller will be able to "learn" from a LED to LED transmission from the THR-22's remote to the NewKinetix iPad accessory.

I need to check here before purchasing the NewKinetix accessory, although, if nobody here knows, I'll go ahead and purchase it and bring the results back to you here.

Thanks much!!!

*I'm aware that an L5 user has developed a work-around enabling the L5 device to work with a THR-22
