Video audio sync issue Premier HD

Recently we have noticed both our TiVos have been getting out of sync, audio ahead of video. If I breifly switch channels it resolves itself for a while.

Recording issue with Sports overruns

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/19/2015 - 18:39
I have several season passes set up for programs my wife and I watch. When there is a sports show on the same channel that runs over, the Tivo starts recording at the time we selected and we miss however much the sports program ran overtime. IS there any way we can record by occurrence, and not be so time bound on a channel? We have a HD series 3 with a 1.5 TB drive. Software 11-0m-01-2-652 (I assume this is the latest). I know this old girl is running on last legs, but do the newer Tivo Premier's suffer from this same problem (yeah I know this is a two question Thread---Sorry.

NBC Nightly News tonight 1/19/15... Hillarious

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/19/2015 - 18:06
They were interviewing NFL player Julian Edelman about "Ballgate" or "Inflationgate", whatever you want to call the controversy over the claim that the New England Patriots used slightly deflated footballs to get an advantage over the Colts this weekend. (Which seems a little strange... Wouldn't both teams have had the same advantage?)

He had on a t-shirt that said on it "Trust Nobody", and a photo of someone (I have no idea who) FLIPPING THE BIRD, WITH BOTH HANDS.

NBC made no attempt to blur out the t-shirt or the hands of the guy on it.

I wonder if anyone's gonna get roasted over this one. How many times on talk shows and entertainment shows have we seen someone's hand blurred out because they did that? Even on the news. Tonight, NBC doesn't notice the photo and lets it air?


Wonder if it violated any FCC regulations?

Banshee: Season Three Thread (2015)

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/19/2015 - 17:46
Not usually much to discuss on an individual episode basis...

Two episodes in, and it's just as entertaining as always. One of the fastest hours on TV. Reminds me of Justified in its approach to plot--move fast, and keep moving. I like how, even though there is often a season long arc (probably the big cash takedown this year?), each episode flies along. When a problem arises, they don't take 2-3 weeks to resolve it. Heck, it's usually done & gone by hour's end.

Love the addition of Chayton this year, he's a great bad guy. And the Colonel. I also like the dead chief's sister. Quiet danger there!

And now that crazy niece is moving more into operations... :eek:

mysterious show deletions continue..

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/19/2015 - 17:42
The last time this happened to me I was transfering a show from my PC to Tivo and lost a ton of shows on my Tivo even though Tivo hardrive capacity wasn't reached. When that happened I went into History/deleted shows in tivo settings and I was at least able to see the deleted shows so I could try to reschedule them later. A few hours later and the deleted shows mysteriously vanish from the deleted shows list. Today I notice I'm again missing a bunch of shows from my tivo roamio basic. This time In history/deleted theres no sign of the missing shows. If like before then they only showed there for a few hours and I missed that time window so now I have no way of knowing all the shows that were deleted. This time which makes this all the more upsetting is that from my shows list- there are still manual deletions that show that can be recovered that mean my hardrive wasn't even full and it still deleted at least 10 hours of shows unnecessarily. And even worse it hides those shows in the history settings so I cant know what they all were to reschedule them. :(

Best Friends Forever

TiVo Blog - Mon, 01/19/2015 - 17:09
It’s been about two weeks since Netflix starting streaming every episode of Friends, and about two minutes since I’ve watched an episode of Friends. All this Friends watching has convinced me of two things. One, I really have no excuse for not starting on those New Year’s resolutions, and two, my own friends could really bring more to the table. Don’t get me wrong, I love my friends, they’re great—but none of them are giving me free samples from Ralph Lauren, and not one of them has locked themselves in Continue Reading

HELIX on SyFy- Season 2 (SPOILERS)

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/19/2015 - 17:07
I'm very, very confused.

The top CDC guy [played by Billy Campbell]...

Didn't his brother (infected by the virus from the start)...

Didn't the other virus victims re-infect him after they nearly had him cured?

Wouldn't he have died when the place was blown/burned?

How in the world is he alive and well in episode 1 of season 2?

Can someone jog my memory? What am I forgetting?

Looking for a S3 is the TCD648250B

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/19/2015 - 16:51
Unsubbed S3 is the TCD648250B. I need one as a test bed. I have one but now need two to test power supplies. As I do more recaps jobs I need one more cheap for testing. It can have a bad HDMI port bad cablecard slots I don't care. No HDD needed no power supply just a bare S3 is the TCD648250B.

Thanks for any info.

Can a Tivo be connected to regular phone to a check the telephone modem to work?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/19/2015 - 16:02
Is there a way to connect a regular phone to a TiVo to check to see if the modem has basic working properties?

I no longer have a phone line, and I want to sell some Series 1 lifetime TiVos that don't have ethernet adapters, and I am wondering if I connect a regular phone and listen for tones or anything else if that will work to see if the TiVo phone modem is basically working.

Hard Drive Swap?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/19/2015 - 14:56
I have two Tivo Premiers, one with monthly service, one with Lifetime service. I plan on cancelling the monthly unit that has a 500 GB drive. This weekend I swapped the 500 GB drive into the 320 GB lifetime machine. It didn't like that and gave me a hardware issue error message. Can't I just swap those drives? I really would like to have the 500 in the lifetime machine.

FS: TiVo Roamio Plus with Lifetime (4 months old)

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/19/2015 - 14:34
I recently 'upgraded' to a Roamio Pro, so I need to sell my Roamio Plus. I tried the eBay route, but the not-quite-so-smart buyer couldn't get it working with his cable company and demanded that eBay force me to take it back.

Learning my lesson, I am cutting eBay out of the equation and seeing if there is a TiVo-savvy buyer on TCF.

The eBay sale was for $650, but I would sell it for less than that.

The front bezel is now chipped on the bottom (thanks for sending the unit back uninsured, buyer!). I have had the unit up and running for a week, so it is purely cosmetic. We can negotiate down for the cosmetics, as long as I can find a good home for the unit.

I am local to Washington DC Metro area, but would ship.

I can provide pics and details as needed.

Smart TVs, Dumber By The Moment

Zatz Not Funny! - Mon, 01/19/2015 - 14:01
Like many of you, I’ve questioned the value of a “smart” TV. On one hand, quick access to online apps like Netflix courtesy “Input 1″ ~with no additional equipment~ is quite appealing. However, despite advances in performance and functionality, we’re not going to replace our televisions at the same rate we might be compelled to […]

no sound after pausing my Premiere

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/19/2015 - 12:08
Okay, a while back (maybe last fall...) a routine Tivo update did a number on all my Tivos and now whenever I pause a show I usually don't get sound after starting to play again.

This was a problem that Tivo appeared to acknowledge and were to fix in the next release... yeah, right.

This is becoming annoying enough (having to shut off and turn everything back on is really REALLY ridiculous!) that I am starting to look around for other DVRs.

Does Tivo ever have any plans to fix this?
