Premiere from my cable company?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 06/10/2013 - 22:00
My cable company (Grande communications) now offers a cable package with Tivo. I already have a premier and an HD. If I take their offer and go for this package, will I be able to "join" them all together on my account so that I can use the MRV features?

Extra tuner for tivo mini in sd menus

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 06/10/2013 - 19:32
So I just got a TiVo premiere4, and after using the HD menus for about a day, I immediately went back to the SD menus. the hd menus are absolutely unusably slow, to the point of being worthless.

Question is, now im thinking of adding a TiVo mini, but it wont let you enable a tuner for it without turning on the HD menus. if you switch back to SD, it seems to re-enable the tuner for normal use.

Is there any way to allow a tuner for a TiVo mini, but keep my permiere4 in SD menus?

I really want to buy a TiVo mini for another room in my house - but I would honestly throw the premiere4 in the garbage before turning the hd menus back on. Hell I would rather gargle broken glass then use the hd menus ever again.

Am I just not able to get the mini, or is there a trick to leave it enabled with sd menus?

Season Pass show not in My Shows, but in Suggestions

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 06/10/2013 - 18:58
I had a strange occurrence last week with my XL4. I just realized that I hadn't seen last weeks episode of Warehouse 13 and it was not in the My Shows list. I looked back in History and there was no message about it not being recorded at 9PM but there was one about 11PM's airing not being recorded because it wasn't new. I selected the unrecorded episode from the History list and it said "Watch now from... 'My Shows'" and a little message in the lower right saying "This episode is in My Shows" but the icon next to it was the "TiVo Suggestions icon"

Sure enough it was in TiVo Suggestions.

Weird, right?

HDVR2 died and I'm trying to get un-stuck

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 06/10/2013 - 18:37
My original HDVR2 died and wouldn't boot up and made a clicking sound.

I swapped a power supply from another HDVR2 (that apparently was not on my account that I got off eBay for parts but booted up and had its own matching card) and my machine still wouldn't boot. I swapped the hard drive into the old unit, it booted but gave error #51. So I surmised the motherboard or something other than the power supply in my unit was bad.

I've been told I cannot activate the second HDVR2 with my old hard drive. And that my best bet is to try and repair the motherboard of my original unit and put my hard drive back?

A rep at Tivo told me I was SOL on getting the second unit on my account and that they don't activate HDVR2s except on the original accounts they were on?

Help! What can I do?

Pay for help

I'm looking to replace my PC and would like to pay somebody to help get pytivo up and going again. If you can remote to my PC and get it up and going and I will pay you $50 on paypal. All I need to do is be able to transfer movies from PC to Tivo..
I use a free remote program called teamviewer and you can have all the access you need.

Replacing internal hard drive

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 06/10/2013 - 17:15
I have a Premiere XL and it looks like I'm going to have to completely replace the internal hard drive. The problem (for me) is that I've never seen the kind of connector the HD is using. What is that? eSATA? SATA-2? This page (http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb...d.php?t=444083) references

13. WD3200AVVS 320GB SATA-2 hard drive

but I've seen other posts call it an eSATA drive. Which is it? Are they the same thing? And I guess I'll need a USB <-> eSATA cable in order to install the TiVo OS image on to the drive? Has anyone run in to any problems doing this? Or do people first add the drive as a slave on their PC and install the image that way?

I'd like to get a 1 TB replacement drive but I read a few posts which say that the Premiere XL doesn't support such large drives? Is that really the case?

I set my clock back all the way to February 13th as I have had to do for the last few weeks. I even tried to set it back beyond that. Then I tried downloading in java instead of curl. I restarted my computer. My internet connection is obviously fine. It was working less than an hour ago and now, I get this....

Anyone have any ideas?

Game of Throne character accents....does it matter?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 06/10/2013 - 10:55
Since the show takes place in a fictional land and a fictional time, do the accents of the characters matter to you?

Do the accents HAVE to be British or could it work if the characters had various American accents?

Shows you are no longer enthusiatic about but still watch

I recorded the season premiere of Falling Skies last night and I realized, that I just don't really care about it. But I'll still watch, to see if it's worth watching still. The first two seasons I really looked forward to watching that series.

Are there shows that used to be one of your favorites but now, you are just kind of watch because you always have?

BTW, we might have had this thread before. Sorry about that if it is.

Still No TiVo Stream For Android

From the Cable Show this morning, TiVo announced plans to offer cable companies partner-branded versions of their existing mobile apps. Beyond potential integration with TiVo hardware and services, the apps can also optionally tie into operator billing and account management. Atlantic Broadband, with ~250,000 customers, is the first taker and their “powered by TiVo” app is [...]

six WD20EADS-00S2B0 HARCHV2AA 2TB Western Digital hard drives - PM me an offer:

six WD20EADS-00S2B0 HARCHV2AA 2TB Western Digital hard drives - PM me an offer:


I just received a shipment of six WD20EADS-00S2B0 HARCHV2AA 2TB Western Digital hard drives, as replacements for some degraded/defective ones I sent back. They're factory recertified replacements, still sealed.

PM me if you'd like to make me an offer. If you'd like, I could pre-image them for either TiVo HD (model TCD 652160), or 2-tuner Premiere (model TCD 746320), or there's many Do-It-Yourself for free methods you can get the details of which, around the forums. I don't need them, because I already bought EURS AV-GP replacements, when Newegg had them on special.

I know some don't like/trust 4K drives, so I figured these 512-byte sector ones may be of interest to some of you.

Well, Don seems to have talked Sally out of this for now, we shall see if it rears its ugly head later...

Game of Thrones S3E10 06/09/2013 'Mhysa'

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 06/10/2013 - 06:10
They really short-changed us on Jaime's return. I wanted to see Tywin's reaction!

I was wrong about Tyrion and Sansa going to Winterfell, but it sure looks like Arya is going down the path of being a killer.

And now we know how Edmure spent his wedding night and Blackfish is still alive.

How did Arya get behind the guys that put the direwolf's head on Robb's corpse? that part was a little forced.

I'm sure I'll have more to say ;)

$79.99 Mini at Home Depot.com??? OOS for now

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 06/10/2013 - 05:05
I thought that it was strange, but when I clicked on the advertising link http://www.homedepot.com/p/t/2041952...0#.UbWfXPmsiSo, I saw the $79.99 price.

The item name says "TiVo 4 Tuner Mini Whole Home Streaming DVR" but the picture, Tivo item number and description below it, are the Tivo Mini. I'm sure that it's a place holder. When the item comes into stock, the price and item name, will be adjusted.

Mad Men on Time Warner 6/9/13

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 06/09/2013 - 23:37
Here's a heads up for TW subscribers on the West coast.

I have been recording this for years on Channel 479 AMCHD on Sundays at 7PM.
It did not record tonight and I had no upcoming episodes. The reason given in the recording history was: Program removed from Channel Guide. A search for Mad Men found it now on Channel 479 AMCPHD at 10PM. Same channel but a different description. I had to delete the old season pass and create a new one.
