Highly Questionable

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 06/03/2013 - 07:37
I may have a new favorite show. This show has been on for a couple of years but it was known as Dan LeBatard Is Highly Questionable until recently. It was a bizarre sports talk show in which long time sports writer Dan LeBatard would sit in his kitchen with his highly incomprehensible Cuban father and talk sports. It was too weird for me to watch. The show recently added another sports writer Bomani Jones as co-host and shortened the name. It's still basically the same show but Bomani cracks me up. I've always liked him on the various espn shows he's been on. Papi is still lovable but decreasing his role has made the show better. I laugh more during this show than I have in any half hour comedy show other than VEEP in years.

Hannibal, are you still watching it? [spoilers]

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 06/03/2013 - 01:03
During the first three episodes, this became one of my favorite shows. I loved the actors. I loved the characters. It felt intellectual and emotional.

However, lately it's just been in a death spiral for me. It maintains the level of creepiness that it had in the beginning, yet it's becoming predictable, unrealistic, and just plain boring at times.

Take the most recent episode for example. Will Graham suffering from lost time. Hannibal and some other doctor conspire to not inform him of this. Immediately, you know that Hannibal is going to kill the other doctor and frame the girl. It's just a given.

Before that, we had human totem pole killer, with some convoluted motivation that really didn't make any sense.

Before that, the musician killer. Another episode where it was obvious that Hannibal was just going to kill the killer. Not really any drama. It was all revealed to us in slow obvious detail.

The entire Abigail story arc has been flat ever since she was revealed to be a killer. Hannibal knows she is a killer. She knows Hannibal is the guy who made the phone call. Graham knows that Hannibal helped her conceal the evidence of the man she killed.

It feels to me like a combination of subpar 'monster of the week' episodes mixed with these boring slow drawn out predictable multi-episode story arcs.

Other people, are you still enjoying this series?

Tivo lockup watching Netflix-again

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 06/03/2013 - 00:24
My series 3 locked up watching Netflix again.
I couldn't even get to the menu where the reset/reboot option is.
I had to pull the power cord.

When is tivo going to do something about these Netflix problems?
Three years of these Netflix issues is enough.

500GB vs 1TB HDD?????

What is the physical difference between these two HDDs? More discs? Larger discs? What? Would the 500GB run cooler and quieter and longer? Thanks.

Original Premier coax + antenna

Can the premiere pull channels from a direct coax Cable connection and an OTA Antenna connection together at the same time? (if you understand what I mean)

Whites (UK show streaming on Hulu)

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 06/02/2013 - 19:29
I have not watched the show but I did a catch a commercial today. I can't seem to find the actual commercial anywhere on Hulu. The trailers on Hulu do not have the problem described below.

At the end of most commercials for shows that are exclusive to Hulu they end with text on three simultaneous but separate screens. The text is as follows:

Screen 1: Title of show
Screen 2. Only
Screen 3: On Hulu

This particular show has the unfortunate title of "Whites". I realize this is the standard language in their ads but I think they could have made an exception here.

TivoS3 proactive measures?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 06/02/2013 - 18:11
I have 5 Tivo S3's w/LifeTimeService. What steps can i take to prepare for eventual hardrive failures?
1. I can upgrade the hardrives and remove orginals for storage.
2. Wondering can i buy a cheap TivoS3 off say ebay and use that hardive? Can you use a hardrive from another TivoS3 and just drop it in a S3 with a failed hardrive and it will work? Do you have to tweak the tivo to accept the used hardrive frm another used tivo?


Tivo server to Ipad via Stream?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 06/02/2013 - 17:13
I think I know the answer but wanted to ask the question directly.

I have a 4 tuner Premier and a Tivo Stream. I also own an Ipad.

I can successfully transfer shows from the Premier to my Ipad via the stream.

But I have a number of shows on my Tivo Server from years past.

Must I transfer those twice - once from the server to the Premier and then to the Ipad via the stream or is there a way to get the Stream to see the recordings on the server?


Winter/Summer any shows have a sister series?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 06/02/2013 - 16:05
I always thought a popular show shouldn't be off for the summer. I get why it's like that for some shows, but don't get it for others.

Do any shows have a sister show that airs during the summer? The only one I could think of was saved by the bell, during the summer they had a series where they worked at a beach club. That works perfectly for school series; winter time they are in school and summer they are on break doing different things/story lines maybe different characters introduced.

I ask because I was watching the walking dead and recently saw a story quoting the head of AMC saying they "see no end in sight" for the series. It seems like a real money maker for them. I think they would want to air more than 16 episodes a year. I'm not saying it has to be the same writers, actors or characters. It would be cool to see the viewpoint from a different group of survivors in a different location. Maybe origin episodes?

WD20EURS Amazon $88 at the moment

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 06/02/2013 - 02:01

But it's through Amazon from some outfit called New World IT, about which I know absolutely nothing, so do your homework.


Amazon themselves are asking $94.36 at the moment.

Unlike newegg, Amazon prices aren't guaranteed to be the same through any specific date.

Twc Los Angeles - what splitter do I need?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 06/02/2013 - 00:02
Last weekend I started losing channels, particularly AMC HD and BBC HD, buts others as well. Called twc, they came out fixed the prob, told me I didn't need a splitter, and left after removing if. I have Moca. I added the splitter back and lost the channels within the hour.

Called TiVo who said I must have the splitter, but the type of splitter or coaxial cable itself could be at fault, but could not recommend a new type/brand of splitter, and that I should ask at Best Buy (tivo can recommend Best Buy, but not a brand/piece of equipment that makes their product work)

I have the tuning adapter and a Premiere tivo - I am pulling my hair out - what to do?

Infinity On Demand disappeared

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 06/01/2013 - 22:20
I've been using Comcast's On Demand from my Tivo Premier 4 for a couple of months now. A day or two ago, it just disappeared. The other stuff, like You Tube, is still there.

Has this ever happened to anyone else, and if so how was it fixed. I've tried reconnecting to the Tivo service, resetting (rebooting) the device and cold -booting the device all without success. I believe if I call Tivo, the first thing the guy is going to ask me to do is cold-boot (unplug) the device. I really don't want to do that again. :confused:

Orphan Black 6/1/13 "Endless Forms Most Beautiful"

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 06/01/2013 - 21:08
Only ten more months! :(

So does the death of Psycho Clone and Soccer Clone embracing her psycho side mean that we have a new Psycho Clone? Psycho Clone is dead, long live Psycho Clone?

And I guess Mrs. S. was one of the scientists in charge of the original experiment? Clearly, my theory that Mystery Maslany from last week was the original from which the clones were cloned is wrong...unless make-up did a horrible job at making her look older, which would be uncharacteristic. So she's, what, Insider Clone?

It's interesting how ambiguous many of the characters are...not good, not evil, just...complicated. And I love love LOVE how this show lets its characters figure stuff out, instead of everybody just being a bunch of morons who never think to ask questions. They got deeper into things in ten episodes than Lost did in two seasons...and I loved the first two seasons of Lost.

It's gonna be a long ten months...

Oh, and I was specifically watching the camera work when there were multiple Maslanys on-screen. Awesome! There were times when three of them were interacting, and the CAMERA WAS MOVING! And it all looked perfectly natural! We've come a long time from the days when "twin" effects were done by keeping each character on one side of the screen with the camera locked into position.

Merlin Series Finale (parts 1 and 2)

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 06/01/2013 - 16:53
This was one of those shows that grew on me as it went on. Not so much for the sometimes corny plots but for the friendship between Merlin and Arthur. The interplay between the two characters and the two actors really made me feel that they were good, loyal friends and not just King and servant. I enjoyed how these two characters played off each other. I'll admit that dust may have gotten into my eyes once or twice during these two hours.

I wasn't all that surprised that Arthur died. I was very surprised that he remained dead. Maybe I should brush up on the mythology.

It's a good thing that Morgana explained that she couldn't be killed by normal means because I kept shouting in my head "Will somebody kill this evil broad, please!" Also, maybe magic users would actually kill their enemies instead of flinging them across the room/cave/forest/etc...

I liked it when Merlin went into full badass wizard mode. I kinda wish it wasn't as Ye Olde Merlin, though.

This show was like a Midieval Smallville but much more satisfying because the lead character wasn't weighed down by lame love subplots.

Xfinity on Demand app vanishes

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 06/01/2013 - 13:43
I live in the Indianapolis area, and have had the Tivo Xfinity on Demand app for many months now. Since it first appeared under "My Shows", the app has always been there. Occasionally it doesn't work when we start it up and try to view a show, but the app itself has never before disappeared.

Yesterday, the app vanished from My Shows. No error, it simply isn't there. Rebooting the Tivo, forcing a connection, waiting overnight did not help. Other network services appear fine. There is no discernable issue with either our cable or internet connections.

We called Tivo, and after about 45 minutes of rebooting, checking our router, etc (which we had already tried), the customer service rep told us our unit had been removed by Tivo from the "Xfinity on Demand" group at Tivo central. Apparently, the last time our unit did its routine overnight connection to Tivo Headquarters, it was mysteriously reconfigured to disable the app on our unit.

The agent told us we should get it back in a few days. (at the 24 hour point it has still not come back)

Has this happened to anyone else?

Stuck on C&DE?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 06/01/2013 - 05:29
So I bought a use HD for my Mom. I plugged it it and it booted up fine. However there were recordings in Now Playing so I figured I'd just do a C&DE just to start it over from scratch. However I started that process 2 hours ago and it'a still on that screen. Anything I can do? I plan on leaving it going over night, but at this point I don't have high hopes. So I'm hoping one of you might have a suggestion for me to try in the morning.

Before plugging it in I opened it up to clean out the dust and I checked the capacitors on the power supply. None of them looked even slightly bulged.
