I am sure some know but just throwing it out there. I saw a promo during Conan on TBS that a new season is coming on TBS in January.

Youtube and Netflix app kill ALL video on XL4

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 10/24/2012 - 22:21
I was a long time S3 fan, and made the stupid mistake of switching to the Elite - now when I playback in the YouTube or Netflix app, then exit either - ALL video playback is gone.

This includes the backgrounds in the SD menus, PIP in HD menus, live TV and any video playback.

Only solution is to reboot - and even then, half the time I need to power cycle 4-5 times to even get the welcome message.

I've tried searching all I could, but there are clearly so many issues with this thing that my bug was hard to find. Anything I can do to prevent this, short of never using those lousy apps?

CBS primetime, 10/24/2012, huh?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 10/24/2012 - 21:52
Normally, Wednesday night should be Survivor(7pm), CSI(8pm), Criminal Minds(9pm). I record all three. The guide data for 10/24, for me anyway, shows Criminal Minds(7pm), CSI(8pm), Survivor(9pm). WTF?

So, at 7pm, my Tivo recorded what it thought was Criminal Minds. Turns out it is survivor. At 8pm, it is recording what it things is CSI, but is actually Criminal Minds. I'm guessing in 10 minutes, at 9pm, it will start recording what it thinks is Survivor, but hopefully is really CSI. So the actually airing of shows was Survivor(7pm), Criminal Minds(8pm), CSI(9pm, hopefully).

This is Cableone, in Boise. Not sure if other areas are as screwed up, but unless you record all three like me, you may have some messed up shows.

[edit] Yup, at 9pm my Tivo is recording what it thinks is Survivor but is really CSI.

Regarding the comment about the World Series... I don't know. Tonight is the first game of the WS. But that doesn't make sense. All three of the CBS shows are still new episodes. They are just jumbled in order with mixed up descriptions.

[edit2] Maybe it does make sense. The WS should be over by 9pm, so maybe the networks (and my Tivo guide data) moved CM and CSI to 7 and 8 and Survivor until after the game was over, but my local affiliate, being in the Mountain Time Zone, decided to arrange things in a different order?

That was a bad deal for Kalabaw.

When they were deadlocked, the expected result for each tribe was 1) no reward, and 2) keep your rice.

Tandang turned that situation into 1) no reward and 2) double your rice. That's a clear win for them.

Kalabaw turned that situation into 1) a reward and 2) no rice. They traded immediate bounty for long-term starvation. One can argue that it might be a good trade for them, and one can argue that it might be a bad trade for them.

But it was a trade they didn't have to make, and it was a trade that benefited the other tribe.

And good riddance on Katie; she was worthless in challenges, and probably would have been worthless as a post-merge ally.

Supernatural - "Bitten" - 10/24/12

Wow. That was really cool.

And I'm sorry was that character development? They were in the show a total of 5 minutes and we get character development. Dean didn't want to hunt her down and kill her. Benny's influence, I can only assume.

And wow, they just aren't letting up on everyone in the outside world thinking they are gay. Office romance. And they are no longer even phased by it. Dean was more worried about his over usage of the word awesome. Ha!

I feel like there could be a lot of hate for this episode with the lack of Sam and Dean in it but I loved it. I love that after 7+ seasons they are still finding ways to make the show feel fresh.

Vizio Co-Star & Tivo HD

Anyone have experienced with adding the Vizio Co-Star (Google TV varient) to their Tivo set-up? Received a Co-Star as a gift.

Looking to see how easy set-up and if it plays nice with Tivo and what additional features are possible.

Thanks in advance for responding.

Next Iron Chef: Redemption - Season Premiere 11/4

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 10/24/2012 - 18:12
This new season of Next Iron Chef begins on Nov 4.

As you can see, they changed the name of the show (a pox on Food Network - stop doing this!). Anyway, something odd is going on, from my end anyway...

I went to set up the Season Pass for this season of the show. I found it on Nov 4, channel 761 (my HD version of FN - as it should be). No problem. I go to set the season pass and I see that the season pass set up page has changed the channel to 702, which is The Cooking Channel. The show is NOT on The Cooking Channel, but it wanted to set it up that way anyway. Of course there was no way to change that so I just had to set up a manual recording to catch the Nov 4 ep for now. On 'record this show' it had it right but, no matter how many times I tried to set up an SP, it kept showing the channel as 702 instead of 761.

I've never seen that before!

Tivo and Vizio VHT 215 Soundbar Problem

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 10/24/2012 - 15:12
I have a Vizio VHT215 soundbar hooked up to my Tivo Premiere via digital coaxial from the TV (a 42" Philips Costco special from 4 or 5 years ago. It does not support ARC). Whenever I change channels, skip, go to the tivo options, etc I almost always get a loud chirrup - very short and sharp. Something that, to me at least, sounds like some sort of weird discontinuation on the sound - like a burst of high pitched static. During play back or live TV it seems to work just fine but the high pitched burst is unacceptable. This sound did *not* occur prior to using the sound bar. Also, if I just use the analog audio the sound doesn't happen. So I'm not sure if its the soundbar that is defective, the TV introducing a problem on the digital out, of if it's something odd with the Tivo.

Has anyone come across this before or have any ideas or suggestions?

Next step is to use the HDMI from the Tivo to the soundbar to the TV (via passthrough) but that's not my optimal solution (we have 3 HDMI device and the soundbar only has two HDMI inputs).

Why would Tivo's record wrong channel?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 10/24/2012 - 14:05
This has only happened a few times but it has happened on 2 THD's.

I selected the Debates and not knowing which THD we were going to use, we set them up online to record CH 618 (FoxNews HD). Instead they went to the first station with that show and recorded on CH 2 which is ABC SD! I thought it had something to do with the online schedule so the next Debate I scheduled from the 2 THD's guides. On one THD it still went to CH2 and on the other it went to CH 118, which is the SD version of CH618. Since I did this from each THD's guide why would it switch channels? This has not happened before that I can remember, but has happened on ALL 3 debates...actually 4 counting the VP debate.

Does anyone else find this feature completely worthless? I listen to Adam Carolla podcast, which has the Guinness Book of World Record for the most downloaded podcast. Why isn't this podcast accessible on the Premier Tivo?

Problem with a few Fios HD channels

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 10/24/2012 - 12:42
I have a Premier XL4 with Fios. Initially, everything was working fine. Then the issue with the HBO channels appeared over the summer, but that was quickly solved by calling Fios and pairing the card.

But immediately after that, I lost the ability to watch a few HD channels - namely, TNT, NFL Network, one of my HBO channels, and most recently, AMC HD. When I go to any of those channels, I see a black screen and a message "Problem with the signal on this channel - trying again".

This really has me baffled. I was hoping the problem would go away when we moved into our new house a month ago, but no such luck. So that tells me it isn't a problem with the coax or the feed since it has occurred in two separate locations. And I recently swapped in a new cable card but have the same problem. Of course, Verizon hasn't been helpful. I haven't tried contacting TiVo support - will do that next.

Anybody have a similar problem? Any suggestions? Apologies if this particular issue has been discussed before.

Season Pass recording, record not at first run time

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 10/24/2012 - 11:54
I have a Premier with two tuners, I have tried several times to search for a program and see that it is on at 2:00 am. When I try and schedule a season pass for the program that clearly shows it is on at 2:00 am, the TiVo comes back and states there are conflicts with the recording. When I check the conflicts the box has set up a season pass for the program when it originally aired that day at 9:00 pm. I want the box to create the season pass for the specific time of the show I have clicked on not the first air time of the show that day. Therfore, if I search for a show and select other viewings and select the show to record that is on at 2:00 am, it lets me record the show as a one time recording but always defaults back to the first air time of the show when I create a season pass.

Orange County Cox - some HD channels down

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 10/24/2012 - 09:41
For some reason some of my HD channels are working, and others say "channel not authorized, call cable company", but the SD channels work fine.

Examples are 1055 (BRAVOHD), and 1056 (FOODHD), totally down, but 1054 & 1057 work fine.

Cox is rolling a truck on Friday as they think it's a signal issue, but I doubt that's the case.

Anyone else with issues?

Automatically recording unwanted shows?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 10/24/2012 - 09:02
No season pass, no wish list, no manual recording, and these are not Tivo suggestions either. Rather, since upgrading to Series 4, all New Shows This Fall are being recorded for some reason, mixing into my list of requested shows. What's going on and how do I turn I off?
