I currently have a original Series 3 box w/ Lifetime upgraded to a 1TB HDD and I'm looking to replace it with a refurb Premiere box upgraded to a 2TB drive. While I'm upgrading the Premiere drive can I use jmfs Live to copy the contents of the Series 3 drive to the new drive and then supersize it? Thanks.
Has anyone watched this new show?
Basically they hide cameras inside restaurants that suspect employees of some sort of criminal acts and catch them.
Here are two summaries from the guide:
A pub owner in Los Angeles suspects that one of her bartenders might be overpouring for customers, giving away too many free drinks and overtipping himself. To find out, she calls in the Mystery Diners, who outfit the bar with hidden cameras and go in undercover to see what is really happening when the boss is away.
When the owner of The Groves Bar & Grill becomes concerned over a large loss in food and supplies, the Mystery Diners go undercover with hidden cameras as new employees and customers, suspecting that a recently hired chef may be plotting more than just the items on the menu.
I saw The Groves Bar & Grill episode, and it was crazy that the cook was using the bar, food, and supplies to run his own catering service.
But how do they get permission to show his face on TV? Don't you have to sign a waiver? Who in their right mind would agree to be on TV if you go caught stealing from your employer?
Or is this some sort of scripted show under the guise of being real?
Is MRS working for you after both of your Premieres have been upgrade to the Spring 2012 update (v18.104.22.168)?
I just received word from a Video/Electronics dealer in Denver that she has received 12 of the WDBABT0010HBK-NESN WD MY BOOK AV 1TB units for Tivo. :) I asked to buy one but she said that they are going to put them on eBay for Auction.
I will post when I see the ad. If you want to send me a message about it, I will try to answer you back as soon as I find out they are listed.
Does someone know how to jump between the (usually 15-minute) tick marks on the TiVo status bar? I know that I can jump from the very end to the very beginning (and vice versa) using the Advance button (">|") but I'm hoping there's a way to move back/fwd between tick marks without the Forward (">>") or Back ("<<") buttons. I've looked thru the manual and the online TiVo Community Forum (TiVoCommunity.com) but can't find an answer.
After successfully updating to 6.4a with an image, the available recording hours is about 10GB less than what the same fresh install listed under 6.2a. Has anyone else noticed this difference? Does it have to do with the Recently Deleted Folder?
On the bigger drives I will be using, this won't be a big deal, but it jumped out at me with the 40GB drive I'm using to test with.
I need your advice selecting a receiver for my DVR setup. I currently have a sport bar like setup with 4 DirecTV boxes, each connected to its own TiVo, and then those TiVo boxes are connected to the TV. The TiVo boxes are all series 2. Two of them are connected directly via composite cables, and the other two are connected via converters to the HDMI inputs on the TV.
So far so good, but I want to expand my system. I will probably add several Dish network boxes, and maybe an additional DirecTV box, and each one would again come with its own TiVo, but there are no more TV inputs available.
So Im thinking about buying a receiver to be between all the TiVo boxes and the TV. Ive looked at those that are available at best Buy and the problem is that even though they have so many inputs, they are in fact all different ones several HDMIs, several component, etc etc. But not many composite. Ideally, I would need a receiver with like 10 or so composite inputs. Is that something that exist or not? Any recommendations you can give me?
Thanks a lot!
I have a stupid question... that TiVo logo on the front panel... It has peeled off. What glue or something else can I use? I tried one - with no effect.
The first hour's walk down memory lane was mildly entertaining. What I didn't expect was that was going to be the best of the two hours.
It was fun hearing Hugh Laurie's real voice while he walked around with people in House's world. More fun than watching all the Ghosts of Houses past stroll by and tell him what was wrong with his life.
We now know how House figured out to be with Wilson for his last 5 months, and it seemed like a way he might have done it. I might have enjoyed that bit if I hadn't had to sit through the extended dream sequence before. But I did wonder for a little while whether the whole thing was planned as his exit strategy. That would make sense given his penchant for elaborate pranks, but then he wouldn't likely have been in a long heroin induced dream in the middle of it.
If he didn't plan it and inserted an already dead body in the building, then he had to wake up from the dream at just the right time, figure out who the conveniently located other body was after the fact and swap records, all while not being seen.
I just swapped out my HDXL with a Premiere and before deactivating the HDXL I transferred all of the season passes (~20 of them) to my Premiere Elite. Now I'm trying to move back onto the new Premiere (from the Premiere Elite) and it's not working. Everything appears ok on the web site, they all appear there... but it's been 24 hours and they still haven't shown up on the new Premiere yet. I've forced calls, rebooted the device and still nothing.
Anyone have a clue how I can force them to update?
Anyone planning on watching this? It starts on May 28th (Memorial Day) and is a 3 part, 6 hour mini series.
I saw the trailer at the movie theater when I went to see The Avengers - the series looks really good. It stars Kevin Costner and Bill Paxton in some post Civil War drama. When I saw the trailer, I was first impressed, then immediately surprised that it was not a movie, but a TV series.
I am looking forward to this one!

There haven't been many threads this season, so thought I'd start one for both nights of the finals. So be warned that it's allowed to discuss the winner in this thread as soon as announced Tuesday!
I've been watching off and on all season. Not dedicated, but enough to keep up and pick favorites. I'm thrilled to see William/Cheryl and Katherine/Mark (well, no so much Mark, but I love Katherine) in the finals. I'm not much of a Donald fan, but he is a good dancer.
So basically, I'm happy with the final three. They are all very entertaining.
The splitter that comes with the adapter has something loose inside. Amazon sent exchange....same issue. Contacted TiVo support. Rep states this is "abnormal" and that the 90 days parts & labor was from Amazon not TiVo. They refused to honor their own warranty.
So over the past few weeks, Charter Cable in Long Beach, CA (and I'm sure the whole greater LA region) has added several new HD channels. And of course, our Tivo premiere has notified us of the update and added the channels to the guide. And we're pretty happy about it, because Charter has long starved us of a good HD selection - and we had Fios where we used to live.
However, about 1/3 of the channels that were added to the program guide, when you select them, give you a black screen and/or an error message that the channel isn't available. I checked with Charter's website, and found that their pamphlet of the latest channels don't include the 9 "blank" HD channels still showing on my guide. So I explained the situation to the tech support chat on their website, who responded that their service does not feature these channels in HD. After pressing further, I found that she was simply looking the same online pamphlet that I just saw and relayed me the information. I asked her if these new channels were in the pipeline, and if that's why they were added to the guide. She said she didn't know, but would escalate the question.
So my question for the insightful users here is... Surely there must be a reason why these were added to the guide? TiVo doesn't just make these things up (the Charter tech, for a second, tried to claim it was an error on TiVo's end)... Is it likely that these channels were added to the guide, per Charter, inadvertently before they were made available in the line-up? Whatever take on this that can offered by others here, I'd really appreciate it!
And just in case that any other Charter / Tivo subscribers in my area happen to check here for this problem, here are the channels in question:
656 - Cooking Channel
657 - DIY
658 - says "Dest HD" but shows an icon for "Planet Green HD"
659 - We HD
660 - Biography HD
661 - H2 HD
662 - Investigation Discovery HD
726 - Hub HD
741 - Own HD
These were all added within the last 3 weeks, most recently two days ago.
