Netflix Quality is terrible!

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 05/14/2013 - 21:33
I got another TV for the kitchen and thought I would move my Roku in there and just use the Tivo for streaming in here.

The quality of the streaming is HORRIBLE. It is fuzzy and very low quality.

The Roku streaming for the exact same show is far better and it is NOT the cable speeds as we have, on average, 27mbps and the Roku works just fine.

I am using a Tivo HD.

Am I doing something wrong or is this just how Netflix streams through the Tivo?


Tuner Assigment

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 05/14/2013 - 21:31
Maybe somebody can help me on this one. When I press info and scroll down to the tuner info it shows what channels are currently buffer recording, two of the tuners are buffer recording the same channel. Why is this? Is there any way to have it record three different channels besides the current channel I'm watching. BTW they aren't programed recordings, just whats in the buffer. No matter what channel I tune to the other tuners keep recording those same channel.
Hopefully this makes sense. :confused:

Can't figure out why I can no longer transfer from PC to Tivo HD

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 05/14/2013 - 21:15
I have a Tivo HD that I record shows and sometimes store on my PC for future use. I used to be able to transfer them back. Last Feb, I tried to transfer a show back to the DVR but instead of it downloading immediately, it told me that it was putting into queue and would start when current transfers have completed. There is nothing in queue on the dvr or pc.

I went thru tivo customer support in which I exhausted all of their ideas, including rebooting the computer, tivo and router. I have tried turning off Norton's firewall. I have made sure that the tivo desktop has nothing in its transfer files and even cleared the queue. Tivo desktop server properties/access control with the automatic option is checked with the DVR name. I tried re-installing tivo-desktop on the pc as someone suggested including the update that fixed the transfer problem to the pc.

I can transfer from the DVR to the pc just fine, but not back. What's frustrating is that it worked fine for 2 yrs and I am not sure if it quit working after I installed Win 7 on my pc. I have looked at threads on this forum and have tried some of the ideas on here but not sure if I found all of the appropriate suggestions. Any help would be appreciated.

THR22: Is there a convertor if you only have ethernet to connect Dtv?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 05/14/2013 - 20:47

I recently bought a THR22 but my apartment only has ethernet connections. I researched online and here but it does not seem like there is a way to make it work since it requires a coaxial cable.

Is there some sort of converter I can buy? I saw a few online but most seem to be for Dtv's whole home DVR service and not just a regular connection.


FS: Tivo (160Gb) + Cachecard Rev 2.2 with 512Mb of memory + SONY VTX-D800U

As Title. Worked up to when the service was pulled, but hasn't been switched on since.

The cachecard will have to be installed as I pulled it with the intention of selling seperately.

TiVo freezes, then reboots - several times/hr!

I called TiVo Customer support. They said that the most likely cause was too strong a signal from the cable box and they recommended buying a "cable signal strength attenuator." Radio Shack staff seemed never to have heard of one and I was unable locate anything suitable on the web. I called TiVo again and asked for a specific part number so I could buy one. TiVo said it was "policy" not to recommend any specific part; they told me to call my cable provider (Verizon). Verizon never heard of such a thing. I called TiVo again, via Chat. Nothing they can do, said they. Has anyone else heard of a similar bizarre story?

Closed captions for archived shows

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 05/14/2013 - 14:25
This has been discussed before, but I want to see if there is an updated answer. I have a Tivo Premiere XL. I back-up many of the non-copy-protected recordings to a Netgear Readynas fileserver, and then I can transfer them back to the Tivo to watch them. Works, though there certainly have been glitches. But my major current problem is I lose the closed captions.

Anyone know anything about preserving captions on transferred Tivo recordings? Tivo tech support, with which I have had very mixed luck, simply says I am out of luck.

How difficult is it to change MAK in kmttg?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 05/14/2013 - 10:51
I will be changing from a tivo premiere to a premiere 4 in the coming days and I want to still be able to use kmttg. Since I NOT be adding the premiere to my account but instead, opening a new account, I am sure they will be giving me a new MAK. Is it difficult to edit my kmttg setting to reflect the new MAK or is it easy?

Going from regular premiere to premiere4 question...

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 05/14/2013 - 09:43

I am receiving the premiere 4 as a gift tomorrow and currently have the regular premiere. I just have 2 quick questions regarding the new machine

(a) do i need to have my cable company send me a NEW cable card or can i use the one thats currently in my premiere and do they need (the cable company) to send out a tech to add more wiring in my home since the new box will be able to record 4 things at once?

(b) in terms of kmttg, does the premiere 4 still work as long as i just put in a new media access key or is that program not compatible with the 4?

No thread yet?

I thought this show was taking place in the 80's. I could have sworn they said that or implied that early on. But in the most recent episode Dr. Lecter's patient refers to Michael Jackson's death.

I am just waiting for Lecter to kill that guy. He's so annoying.

Watching Adam Carolla Pod/Video Cast

Any other Carolla fans? I have a series 3 and am wondering if I can stream any of Adam's casts through my Series 3? I know he has a number of video offerings on his home page and his own YouTube Channel. Could either of these be configured on my series 3?

Survivor Blood vs Water Possible Casting Spoilers

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 05/13/2013 - 22:01
This is from


Survivor has cast a former Big Brother winner who will appear on Survivor Blood vs. Water, the new season that features returning cast members playing with loved ones. While Amazing Race and Big Brother have long shared cast members, including with Survivor, it has not yet drawn a cast member from CBS’ other shows.

Hayden Moss, who won season 12, is dating Kat Edorsson, who appeared on Survivor One World. Another notable pairing: Monica Culpepper partner will compete with her husband, Brad Culpepper, a former NFL player.

The returning cast members I’ve been able to confirm, via someone with knowledge of the cast, are as follows, though it’s possible one or more of these are either alternates (or decoys?) The cast is sequestered in L.A. and are leaving for the Philippines soon, and include the following returnees paired with someone they know:

Tyson Apostol, Tocantins, Heroes vs. Villains
Aras Baskauskas, Panama
Rupert Boneham, Pearl Islands, All-Stars, Heroes vs. Villains
Monica Culpepper, One World
Colton Cumbie, One World
Kat Edorsson, One World
Laura Morett, Samoa
Gervase Peterson, Borneo
RC Saint-Amour, Philippines
Tina Wesson, Australia, All-Stars

While there are some bright spots—the return of Gervase is especially interesting—this cast seems like a phenomenal joke: Two winners, three if you count Hayden? One person, Rupert, playing for a fourth time—fourth! Three of the cast from Survivor One World, which Jeff Probst called “a letdown”?

Hopefully the twist can save it: I am intrigued about how Amazing Race-izing the show will affect the game, but this all seems so desperate.

Damn, why does he keep letting Zack slide?

I'm screwed. No Tivo!

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 05/13/2013 - 20:16
After many years w/Tivo, starting with Series 1, I'm SOL. I can only get IPTV service and my three Tivo's might as well be doorstops.

So I'm asking your advice on the best substitute.

I'm thinking maybe some kind of device that will allow me to stream video from my PC. But it would have to be able to control the PC remotely as the TV and PC will be in different rooms.

Maybe something like a Ruku if it permits streaming from a PC. Does it?

It would be nice if the device had local storage so that I could have several programs immediately on hand at the TV end.

Or possibly a slingbox where I would do all the Tivo-ing at my folk's house and watch it remotely.

Naturally I'd like all this in HD.

I'm just blue skying because my only experience is with Tivo and don't know what else might be out there.

Please give me your input. Is there life without Tivo?


How to set up a TCD746320

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 05/13/2013 - 19:57
I'm writing to you from my job.
I'm a newbie with that tivo, I'm trying to upgrade from the first serie model to that serie 4 HD.
I've bought a TCD746320 from ebay
When I tried to start it, it said that I need an ethernet connection or a phone line. Since I don't have internet at home I tried from phone line but there isn't a phone connection on the back of the TCD746320 and I can't finish the installation.
All I have is a regular antenna that I get 5 channel here in Quebec city.

Some one can help me start it so I can began recording series for my wife.
