Today's WSJ has an article by Tom Rogers on how TiVo is trying to help Veterans get jobs, it's on page A11. I can't link to the article as I only have as Sub to the print edition.

No component out

I was given this unit (S3 HD) as a gift, and the friend *thinks* it was working in the past, but it does not work for me.
I know my TV's inputs work as I have other AV equipment that does work, and have used those cables and inputs.

Is there some way to verify the status of the ports?
Is it common for this function to simply die??



TiVo’s Fix For Jobless Veterans

TiVo Blog - Thu, 08/16/2012 - 12:22
TiVo’s Fix For Jobless Veterans Many companies have college interns. Why not for men and women back from combat? By TOM ROGERS AND TOM WOLZIEN They are everywhere, but we don’t usually see them—the nearly 300,000 of the 2.4 million veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan who are without work. That’s a 12% unemployment rate, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. As a veteran recently told us, “It’s like people say, ‘Thank you for your service . . . but don’t ask me for a job.’” They Continue Reading

TiVo Premiere XL4 an QNAP

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 08/16/2012 - 11:46
I am planning few months down the road, to make a jump from Series 3 to Premiere XL4 with TiVo Stream and IP extenders (once the latter are released). But I like my self-made eSATA storage expander (Vantec). However, I can't find anyone who would state if any other drives, outside of the WD AVR 1TB, are even recognizable.

Taking things a step further, is there any way to hook up iSCSI?


transformer size for tivo to work in Europe?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 08/16/2012 - 11:05
I have my series 2 here with me to use recording AFN. I need to get a transformer so I don't blow it up. Anyone how how many watts the tivo s2 uses? I've tried looking it up and don't see a definite answer. Thanks so much for any help!

Lost HDMI?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 08/16/2012 - 10:30
Anyone have an idea why I would all of a sudden loose HDMI on my S3. It's been fine for about 5 years. I tried a new high speed HDMI cable, but that didn't change a thing. I went to RGB cables and that works fine. It just doesn't look as sharp and crisp as HDMI.

I called both Time Warner and Tivo and neither could solve my problem. Anyone have an idea as to what went wrong?

Tivo Premiere constant reboot (need image) question?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 08/16/2012 - 08:58
So I got the GSOD followed by a constant rebooting of my 5 month old Tivo Premiere. (Bought 3/9/2012) :(

Trying to determine my options here.

1.)It sounds like the unit is under limited warranty. Which I think means for $49 or something they will repair it for me. Not sure if someone can confirm this or not. Not sure if that leaves me on hook for shipping?

2.) Replace hard drive. This is assuming I know the problem is the hard drive.
It sounds like GSOD and constant reboot is caused by a bad hard drive. Can anyone confirm that?

I have a 1.5TB drive sitting around anyway. I figured I could use that vs spending money getting my current tivo repaired. Here is my issue. My current Tivo is dead. So where do I get a premiere image? I have a friend with a premiere. Can I use his Tivo hard drive and load that onto my Tivo? any issues with doing that?

MRV between cablecard Premiere and OTA only Premiere

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 08/16/2012 - 08:21
Thinking about getting a Premiere4 and moving the cablecard from my Premiere to the 4. The Premiere would then be OTA only. Any issues or concerns with streaming between them (will cablecard channels be copy protected and unwatchable on the original Premiere?)

I'd assume no issue - but want to make sure.

Any opinions on a good DVD authoring software to transfer TiVo recordings?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 08/16/2012 - 07:09
Hey All

Using kmttg, I am able to have glorious HD versions of anything from my TiVo that is of course, not copy protected. However, the current software I have on my computer- Corel DVD Movie Factory is giving me issues. Whenever I import the video (note- I do not convert it- I use the actual .mpg file), and then play it in my home DVD player, the picture moves in almost a robotic way. It is difficult to explain but it kind of looks like stop and go instead of the picture moving normally. Playing the files on the computer works perfect so I am thinking it is the software doing this.

Is there a better software I should be using to get better quality or am I doing something wrong when it comes to importing and clicking on burn. I am not changing anything on the software when I do it so I can't imagine I have any setting wrong.

No sound on non-copy protected recording transferred from Tivo Desktop

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 08/16/2012 - 02:32
I am able to transfer “Entertainment Tonight” from my Tivo to PC successfully using Tivo Desktop (even tried kmttg). But during playback there is no sound. It’s not a problem with my Media Player’s audio codec because other shows play fine. In fact, the Entertainment Tonight episode (NBC HD) that was taped last week was delayed because of the Olympics. So there was sound during the first 3 minutes of playback. But when ET started, the sound went off. It seems like my cable provider has put some sort of restriction on this particular show. Any ideas?

Going HD with TiVo and DirectV

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 08/16/2012 - 02:19
I have been a happy TiVo owner for 12 years now. I had one of the first units, which I updated with a second HDD, and sold to one of my son's friends, who I believe is still using it. I have had two Series 2 units for a number of years now and have moved one of them into our motor home, which we live in full time, and hooked it into the DirectV system we bought for use on the road. All has worked well with this system for 3 plus years we have been full-time RVers but now we are ready to go HD. Now that the DirectV DVR with TiVo is available, my plan is to go with one of those for our satellite system, and also getting a TiVo Premier DVR for recording OTA and cable shows (when we can hook up to cable and/or get shows OTA. In Alaska this summer this has not always been possible, but this winter, in FL, we will have both). I have seen that DirectV claims that their TiVo DVR will not hook up to their full house system, but I am thinking, if it works the same as the older Series 2, that I should be able to hook the two TiVos together through our network system. Is this true? Will I also be able to use the TiVo Desktop software with the DirectV unit?

The other question I have about the DirectV DVR (THR-22 I guess the model number is) is how many shows can I record at once? I think the answer is 2, since there are 2 satellite connections. I assume it has two satellite receivers built in.

If this set up works as well as I think it will, It should be pretty sweet for us. Thanks in advance for any advice and/or answers.

tivo will not rewind and the time does not move

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 08/16/2012 - 01:07
I have a 11/2 year old Elite. I use Kmttg to down load programs to my computer and use Videoredo to edit the ads out. Then I use pytivo to trans the programs back to the Elite. For the last week or so I have been getting this problem. I can not rewind back 10 second or do a fast rewind of the programs plus the time line does not move with program. It stays at zero. Does any know what is causing this?
I can play recorded show that have not been transferred ok It rewinds and the the time line works ok.

Android app cannot find Tivos

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 08/15/2012 - 18:31
I am at wits end trying to get the Android Tivo app to find and connect to my Tivos. The network remote control is turned on. pyTivo and kmttg have no trouble finding both tivos. The tivo's find each other and stream fine. The app cannot find either one. Yes its on the same subnet on my home network.

Any other ideas what could be missing or wrongly configured?
