New Tivo Box, Same Cablecard?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 09/27/2012 - 06:31
I have had a Tivo Premiere at my fulltime residence for about a year and a half with OTA. I am finally upgrading the Series 3 (using cablecard) at my vacation home to a Premiere. Can I just take the cablecard out of the Series 3 and place it in the Premiere? Or do I need the cable guy to bring a new card or reconfigure the existing card for the new Tivo?

I am trying to figure this out in advance of my next trip to my vacation home because I am only at the house for a few days at a time, and once I get there it will be too late to schedule a cable guy. I use Charter Cable with a single multistream card, without a tuning adapter.

Thanks

Castle season 5 - spoilers up to current episode

Now those two definitely have chemistry, but with Nathan Fillion how could you not? :-D

I'm so tired of the Beckett's mother plot and with any luck it's on hold for a while again and we get back to the fun episodes. I think they did a good job of tying up the loose ends from the end of last season and setting the stage for this one.

Problem setting up DTA box with Series 2

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 09/27/2012 - 01:26
Hi,

I have a series 2 box and am having issues getting the IR output to control my new DTA box. I connected the IR blaster cable to the IR port on the back but when I watching live TV and press the channel up/down on the Tivo remote it appears the Tivo is tuner is changing to a different channel on the cable input. Since the DTA box is only outputing a signal on channel 4 this results in loss os signal. Is there a setting in the Tivo I need to set to cause the unit to send the channel control signals on the UR blaster instead of changing the cable tuner channel?

Thanks,

jerry

FIOS Cable card or buy online?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 09/26/2012 - 21:40
I used to have FIOS tv and switched to OTA about a year and a half ago. Bought my first TiVo (Premier) at the same time to replace the FIOS dvr. I've had a lot of problems with the TiVo locking up, so I'm going to try the local only FIOS channel package in an effort to rule out OTA being the problem.

From what I've read, you can't use TiVo on FIOS without a cable card. My question is, can I buy the proper cable card online, or must I rent the card from Verizon? I'd rather buy the card for $15 than pay $4/month for ever and ever amen.

Has anyone tried to use apps like airplayer to stream the ios device's screen to (therefore) effectively streaming to a mac?

My Stream will get shipped soon. I have a couple of ios devices, but I'll really like to stream to the mac-screen (larger screen size)

Well simply it works as advertised but with the added benefit of saving lots of cash!!!

Yes lots of mullah!!

I am about to leave on a work trip for 5 days and usually I rent movies or download some seasons / shows off of itunes and now I just dowloaded about 20 shows such as

Sons of Anarchy
Hell on Wheels
Revolution
NCIS
Fanatasy Football
Game On
New Normal etc..

While I can not copy shows from HBO & Sho and such I can at least watch them at home and save the rest for travel.

While I know each different cable operator has different flags set I should recover the cost easily in 1 year!

Is 2T the limit for a Tivo Premier XL ?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 09/26/2012 - 14:26
I own a TIVO premier XL and want to add more capacity. I want to either replace the stock 1G with a 2G, or add the 1G external WD expander.

As per the TIVO HD XL section of the first comment of this thread (http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb...d.php?t=370784), it looks like these are my two main options other than adding an unsupported external hard drive, which I dont want to do. I also dont want to send my unit to Weeknees.

Since the thread seems kinda old, I just wanted to confirm that these are my only options, and that I cant easily get above 2T with a Premere XL.

If it is accurate to say that there is a 2T limit on the Premier XL's, is this some fundemental limitations of the architecture, or is there any chatter about this potentially being addressed in a future software upgrade?

Thanks.

TiVO Newbie - Atlantic Broadband

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 09/26/2012 - 12:37
Potential newbie to TiVO. Asking the experts here to help with the final decision to move to TiVO.
I currently am an Atlantic Broadband cable subscriber. For just the 2 HD DVR boxes we have, we are paying them $57 per month (after taxes). Crazy - that's why we want to move. This monthly fee includes: the 2 boxes, the HD upgrade on both boxes, and the DVR service to both boxes.

I'm trying to determine if going the TiVO route makes sense. Here's where I need help:
1. Will the entire $57 charge to Atlantic BB go away if I go to TiVO?
2. Will any additional fees be added by Atlantic BB for the cards?
3. If we go to 2 TiVO boxes (to replace the current 2 boxes), which model & service plan make the most sense?
4. I've heard some horror stories with having TiVO on Atlantic BB, including not being able to access VOD. Have these issues been mostly resolved?

Thank you very much!

Need advice on Tivo Drive upgrade seller on eBay

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 09/26/2012 - 11:04
Hi,

I have a problem I hope the community can help me with. Back in March, I found this auction:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...:X:RTQ:US:1123

It was for a 2TB upgrade drive for my Series 3 OLED. I e-mailed the seller (uoph) and asked if he would accept $160 (as opposed to asking price of $169.90). He said yes and sent me an invoice through Paypal. I received the drive and installed without issue.

This month the drive started failing (reboot loop: original stock drive still works fine when swapped out). The original and current auction promised a 3 year manufacturer warranty and their guarantee section promised: "We will work with you to cover any issues under manufacturer warranty and will exchange the drive if required."

I have tried to contact the seller numerous times, through e-mail, Paypal mail, and eBay mail. I have not received any response. EBay and Paypal could not help me as the sale was six months ago. EBay did give me his contact phone number, but when I called it, the person who answered said they had no idea what I was talking about and I must have the wrong phone number.

It is odd that they won't respond as their seller rating is near 100% and the auction listing also offers Tivo repair service.

I realize that I am probably out the $160, but if anyone can offer any insight to this seller and/or advice, it would sincerely be appreciated.

NFL Network

How long should it take for TiVo to add new channels? Like all TWC users, we got NFL network on Saturday (reported in New York Times among places). Still no guide data on my box nor on TiVo.com.

Have the replacement refs taken over TiVo as well?

Extended warranty

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 09/26/2012 - 10:53
I am ready to get the Tivo Premier XL with the 4 tuners and the price is the same with Tivo directly and with Best Buy.

Both offer $39.99 for a 3 year extended warranty.

Anyone have any experience with either and which would you buy?

Anyone warrant theirs with Square Trade?

Anyone else watch this? Pretty bad acting on Dennis Quaid's part. And what's up with his nose? It never used to be so wide. Is it bad makeup or has he really aged that poorly?

Won't set a season pass for this show. Seems like they are trying to copy Magic City a bit with a period piece, but in the end just another formulaic CBS cop show.

I liked it. It seemed quirky without being overly quirky.

During her toast to Tom it cracked me up when she asked "By the way, are we sure she's not a war criminal?"

Some of the lines made me laugh:

"My body mass index is not great. But I'm not like Precious or anything, you know?"

"When I was a kid, all I did was watch romantic comedies in our living room while I did my homework. In college, everything changed. I could watch romantic comedies whenever I wanted to."

"Met in an elevator? My hair came undone? Are you kidding me? I'm basically Sandra Bullock!"
