TWC promotions

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 01/15/2013 - 08:18
The current Time Warner promotion in my area is a $150 Best Buy gift card for switching to their bundled package. Around Christmas the promotion was the same gift card plus a Microsoft XBox.

I've decided to switch from my local cable co to TWC but figure I should time the switch such to maximize my promotion. Anyone watch their promotions close enough to know if the current $150 is typical/good/bad??

Thank you.

Upgrade Confusion - Tivo HD to Premiere XL4

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 01/15/2013 - 08:04
Hello everyone...

I have been a Tivo customer for a LONG time back to the first series 2 single tuner DVR, but now have a Series 3, and a Tivo HD. I am paying about $13 for one of them and $7 for the second one.

I would like to replace the Series 3 with a Premiere XL4, and want to know my options. Can I just replace the Series 3 online with the Premiere and keep the same monthly pricing?

I see that this DVR is available online and in store (Best Buy) for $350 ($50 off) right now, and I would love to have 4 tuners at my disposal on one device.

Is this an option?

Brighthouse Florida Tuning Adapter/Season Pass issues

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 01/15/2013 - 06:29
Under normal circumstances, when one relocates and changes providers Season Passes are supposed to automatically realign themselves with your new channel lineup when you repeat the Channel Lineups portion of the Guided Setup process.

This didn't happen (with a few exceptions) when we just switched to Brighthouse. I suspect it's something to do with this weird tuning adapter thingie we're now compelled to use. The SPs say (example) channel #107, when in reality the show is on #1007 - so it doesn't see it.

I brute force manually recorded the shows last night that were supposed to be SPs, but this will not do. Any way to rectify this other than deleting all season passes and adding them back in one by one?

Emergency Broadcast System tests are far too frequent

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 01/15/2013 - 02:38
For the past few months I've been getting Emergency Broadcast System tests every single day, at all hours of the day, on all channels. It starting to get annoying because about 50% of my recordings have Emergency Broadcast System test. Last night in the middle of a HBO movie I get a 30 second Emergency Broadcast System test. The worst was this weekend during the NFL playoff game with Seahawks vs 49s, they decided to have a test. If they want to tick people off, right in the middle of NFL play game is truly the best day\time.

OK I get it, they need to test the system, but they are testing it so much it is like Chicken Little declaring the sky is falling several times a day, if there is a actual Emergency, people are going to blow it off as just another annoying test.

Better quality transfers with pyTivoX?

I have a Tivo Premiere, Mac Mini running OSX10.8.2 and pyTivoX v1.3. Despite downloading 720p clips, after transferring them to the Tivo, I loose a lot of quality - what am I doing wrong?

TiVo A created a new recording for TiVo B in the othe room

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/14/2013 - 21:37
I was using TiVo A in the living room, going through the on-screen guide, and I hit record, when it reported conflicts, which puzzled me because nothing else was scheduled at that time, until I looked at the top of the screen and it was attempting to schedule the recording on TiVo B in the other room.

I couldn't figure out why, nor did I know you could do that. Then I remembered earlier in the day I had been watching on TiVo A a recorded program streaming from TiVo B's queue. Out of curiosity, on TiVo A, I pressed Now Playing, and the highlight was on TiVo B at the bottom of the list.

I pressed Live TV, viewed the on-screen guide again, pressed record again, and it was still trying to record the show on TiVo B.

The only way to get TiVo A to record the program on TiVo A was to start playing a program in TiVo A's queue, stop it, and then try to schedule the recording from the on-screen guide again. That time it worked.

Is this normal, or a bug?

P.S. FYI, both TiVos are Premieres purchased in 2012, connected by Ethernet cables to a Cisco router with the latest software update (20.2.2-01-2).

Californication Season 6

Lo and Behold, look what showed up on my Now Playing last night.
Nice to see you again Hank.

I lost interest towards the last few eps last season, and it continues to look grim for my favorite T.V. bad boy, but I will go along for a few eps to see what they got.

Is there a new show On Showtime they are attempting to tandem with this? Now that Episodes will not return ti 2014, what is a girl to do?

TiVo’s Tops Moments: Ladies Night at the Golden Globes

TiVo Blog - Mon, 01/14/2013 - 20:46
TiVo’s data examined the top moments (most watched and re-watched moments) from last night’s Golden Globe Awards on NBC, and found that the top five were from entertainment’s leading ladies. Tina and Amy, the hosts of the night, took two of those top five spots! They were: Adele’s ultra-enthusiastic acceptance speech that included the memorable line “we’ve been pissing ourselves laughing all night” for winning Best Original Song for “Skyfall” Nominated for Best Actor in a Television Miniseries, Tina Fey’s semi-David Bowie look with glasses and a pencil-thin mustache for Continue Reading

The Carrie Diaries - "Pilot" OAD 1/14/2013

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/14/2013 - 19:52
OK. Who else is watching? Admit it!! It's OK. :cool:

Many of you know I am a sucker for just about any sort of teen/adult drama. And even more so fore period pieces set in the 1980s. Loving the fashion and music here.

I know very little about the Carrie Bradshaw character, apart from knowing she is a character from the popular TV series Sex in the City. I never watched that show.

The actress playing young Carrie is adorably cute.

2007 vs now

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/14/2013 - 19:49
Hi there - I am a very early tivo adapter from the 2003-2007 era. I cancelled my subscription around 2007 when I decided tv was no longer worth paying for, and haven't had any cable or satellite since then.

Well, I just had cable installed yesterday and I have a promo with free dvr service through Charter for 12 months. As awesome as it is to have a dvr again for the first time in years, its functionality is completely underwhelming to me compared to what I used to be able to do with tivo.

If at some point I was to switch back to tivo, I was wondering what the difference is with the tivo boxes & service then vs. now?

The boxes seem to be much less expensive - I don't want to mention what I paid for my first box that I bought back in the day. Is there anywhere I can go that would describe the differences of how the technology has changed or improved over the years?

Reboot problem

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/14/2013 - 19:31
Using TiVo Transfer within Toast 11 on my Mac, was having difficulty listing programs residing on my DVR through my home wireless network. TiVo/and Toast/TiVo transfer has been working flawlessly for more than several years, until a couple weeks ago when the 'no listing of programs' problem started. Rebooting the Mac seemed to restore program listing.

Earlier guidance on the Forum suggested reboot the DVR. I unplugged the DVR for 5-10 minutes, then plugged back in. TiVo gives me the Welcome! Powering up... screen, screen goes dark, then the Almost there. Just a few minutes more.... screen, screen goes dark, then back to Welcome! Powering up... screen, etc.

One time, I got the THx screen, then the menu; I selected Live TV, and then back to Welcome! Powering up... screen.

Any thoughts on what the problem might be?

I posted this question in the TiVo help forum and it was suggested that I head over to this forum with my question, so I'll give it a try here:

I'm trying to make a back-up hard drive for my Toshiba TX20 using winmfs, and I connected the TX20's IDE 250GB HD to my XP OS computer with both the TX and my computer HD jumpered to cable select, with my computer HD being in the master position on my IDE cable and the TX drive in the slave position, and after starting my computer I can't get out of BIOS and into Windows. Any suggestions?
