Bug report: Aspect Correction Mode switches from Panel to Full

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 07/24/2014 - 22:25
Since getting the Summer 2014 software update, I've noticed a bug with the aspect correction mode setting. I have it set to Panel on a 16:9 display. After 24 hours, the video changes to Full aspect, but still displays the setting as Panel. Every time I reset it, it switches back to Full a day later.

I prefer Panel when viewing old SD programs so they don't get stretched horizontally.

Project Runway season 13 (spoilers to date)

Project Runway season 13 starts tonight!

As in previous seasons, I hope to put the episode title in the post title to give people who are behind a signal to stop reading.

New social media twist this season:

"The Good Wife" For Dummies (seeking veteran knowledge)

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 07/24/2014 - 20:03
Yes, I know this show started five years ago, but we're just starting it now.

We're 7 episodes in to the first season, and so far, it's a formulaic thing with each episode having a fully contained legal-based story of varying believability (and I'm not even a lawyer), and the overall arc of the husband's situation and how everyone reacts to it.

It's got such great reviews, and was even nominated for Emmys this year, so it must be (still) doing good things. I like the husband arc, but the law stuff sometimes almost feels like filler between pieces of the husband storyline. I find myself yelling "Oh, COME ON!" at the legal stuff on a semi-regular basis.

I don't want spoilers, just some yes or nos and any general comments

1. Does the show evolve from this format?
2. If not, does the law stuff get better?
3. Is it worth watching five seasons of at this point? (I realize this is quite subjective :) )

Thanks for any non-spoilery info

Who Do You Think You Are 2014

Well, the first episode in 2014 sure started out with a bang!

Very interesting. Cynthia Nixon discovered that her third great-grandmother took an ax to her third-great-grandfather's head while he was sleeping.

Not all genealogy has to be sensational to be interesting but this was definitely a fascinating find.

Tivo app network remote doesn't work on my Series 3

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 07/24/2014 - 12:45
We've got a Premiere and a Series 3 on our home network and have recently started using the official Tivo app on our iPhones.

We have enabled Network Remote Control on both boxes.

For the Premiere box, everything works great with the remote control feature.

On the Series 3, all the other features of the Tivo iPhone app work, except for the remote control.

Any ideas? We have a third party app that we have used for years called "DVR Remote" that works fine to control the Series 3 over the network, but really want to get the official app working.



Underground BBQ Challenge

I caught this show on the new FYI network. It's pretty bad. Supposedly it's a challenge between 2 areas of local cities competing. First episode was NY, and second was Austin.

Both episodes seemed to be a hippster vs. a non-hippster. I couldn't finish the first episode. I only watched the second because it was from my town. Definitely won't be watching again, as it's pretty bad.

One tequila, Two tequila, Three tequila, Floor…

“One tequila, Two tequila, Three tequila, Floor…” Whether you’re jumping on the summer trend of hard liquor spiked popsicles, sticking to your regular drink of a margarita with salt, or sipping it straight, tequila finally has its own day for celebration! Although the history of this unofficial national holiday is unknown, that shouldn’t stop you, if you are of drinking age, from enjoying — responsibly — the beverage that is made of between 30% and 50% alcohol.  Cheers to that!  National Tequila Day is July 24th, so check your liquor cabinets Continue Reading

I get my TV signal via OTA. I cut the cord, a year or two ago. I don't miss cable or satellite TV at all. What I do miss is the DVR. I am looking to buy a Tivo on Ebay. What I am wanting to know is which unit that Tivo has is best suited for OTA? I dont need a big HD as I don't save what I record. Also two turners would be more than enough. One that that is concerning me, I read some reviews on Amazon.com about home some Tivo Premieres don't do a very good job of tuning in the local stations. I dont know if these people that have problems are few or what.

Any help that you all can give me will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Well, psycho Caleb is back. Sure went from Creepy to not caring back to creepy pretty quick. :rolleyes:

And whoever said it was right. Cody should have put Caleb up. He will definitely strike at Cody first.

And Donny has to be the most genuinely nice guy (or seriously a door mat). He seems upset that Cody is upset that he put him up. :(

Still rooting for Donny to win. But sooner or later his luck as a "pawn" will run out if this keeps up. Hoping he wins HOH tonight!

Don't know if this applies out of the MD/DC/VA metro market or not, but FIOS is moving some channels around. This may affect any Season Passes you have set up for these channel numbers.

tivo hd with comcast planned upgrade to hdtv

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 07/24/2014 - 04:43
Maybe I'm having a senior moment(s) ?

I just purchased my first HD tv.
I have a TiVo HD unit with a Comcast cablecard, since 2009.

Currently, I can record Comcast HD channels and watch them on my non HD tv.
Will I get TRUE HD from my TiVo HD unit to my new HDTV ?
Comcast says I need to upgrade to HD service.
But I think I have HD through my Tivo HD unit ?

Will an upgrade to HD service from Comcast require a new cablecard ? A simple switch at the Comcast home office ?

Why pay approx. 10/mth more if I get HD quality through the TiVo HD unit

Incomplete Download from Tivo Series 4 to Windows 8

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 07/23/2014 - 21:43
Sometimes I am getting incomplete downloads from my series 4 to Windows 8. Most of the time, there isn't a problem downloading TV shows or movies. But intermittently there is a movie or show that will not download completely. I get partial downloads.

I have tried to transfer to another tivo box and then download from there, but i get the same incomplete file.

The show is fine when I play it on the tivo box.

Has anyone else had this issue AND have a solution?

Thanks for your help.

Extant/Amazon Prime question

Does anyone know how long it takes for a new ep to show up on Prime?

I'm without my DVR, and I fell asleep during most of this one.

(Yeah, I debated whether to post here or in Happy Hour).

Forensic Files on CNN

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 07/23/2014 - 19:52
Forensic Files on CNN have actually been recording the coverage of the MH17 plane shoot-down, even though it still shows the guide data for the episodes. So episodes may not be recorded when they are actually aired again. (The last actual episodes I recorded were from Thurs 7/17).
