Bad M-Card?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 08/04/2012 - 00:23
I have a refurb Premiere I bought from Woot over a year ago. It's been unopened in it's box until a couple of months ago when I hooked it up and started using it unactivated as an OTA tuner. A couple of weeks ago I called to activate it as the second Premeire in my HT setup (and to convince them to give me the $99 lifetime deal on my month to month TiVoHD).

It's been working great but I've only been using it with an antenna. A few days ago I decided to go ahead and get a cable card for it (I have Comcast service and my other Premiere and my HD are both on it already). I powered it down and installed the M-Card but when I powered it up it never would get to the setup screen. I'd get the "We're almost there" screen but it would eventually get to a blank blue screen with nothing but the TiVo guy in the upper left corner. I could hit the TiVo button on the remote and it would cause it to reboot again and eventually end up at the same screen.

I assumed it was an issue with the M-Card and sure enough when I removed the card everything worked fine again. So I went by the Comcast office and told them I had a bad card and they gave me another one. I came home, put it in, and guess what?...same thing, same blue screen with the TiVo guy in the corner. Again, I removed the card and it worked fine.

I chatted with TiVo and they told me it sounded like a hardware issue and to call them to see about getting a replacement Premiere. They were pretty much no help at all.

As a test, would I lose pairing information if I were to try the M-Card from my working Premiere or HD just to see if the unit will get to a setup screeen and verify that my box is good? Could I install the questionable card in one of my working units to see if they boot up to verify that the card is good?

My gut feeling is that I got two bad cards in a row but I want to make sure if possible before I go to Comcast for the third time. I should also mention that this second card I got looks like it's been well used.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Netflix problem

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 08/03/2012 - 22:06
I just purchased a tivo premiere and have not been able to use netflix on it. It loads my oueue but will almost never play any programs. It will show a box saying "unable to load this program at this time please try again later or try another selection". Hulu Plus and youtube work fine on the Tivo. Also my playstation and roku work on netflix on the same network. Tivo support blames Netflix and Netflix blames Tivo and I am left in the middle with no solution and very little help from either one. Anyone have any ideas? I have tried all the steps in the Tivo help section online.

FS: TiVo Series 3 TCD648250B // Lifetime // 1TB HD

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 08/03/2012 - 21:21
Hello,

I'm selling my Series 3 (TCD648250B). I'm the original owner, and it works perfectly:

* Upgraded to a 1 TB internal HDD -- Samsung 5400 RPM drive
* Lifetime Service
* OLED front panel
* THX

It has the original box, and all material than came with the TiVo. HOWEVER, I'm not sure if it came with a HDMI cable, but I seemed to have given my away... so no HDMI cable.

Asking $350. I am in Northern NJ, and would prefer we can meet locally.

Thanks.

All eyes are on London and for better or worse, NBC has been bringing it to us live (or delayed) – just do a quick Google or Twitter search if you want the popular opinion on that subject. Of everything out there, we know you’ve been spending primetime watching a lot of swimming and gymnastics – and even some great performances by parents in the stands. And we’ve been watching what you’re watching. But there are some golden moments – literally – that haven’t made the Top 5 that we Continue Reading

Long Delay Coming Out of Standby

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 08/03/2012 - 11:35
Last night one of my new XL's (the one that has been recording Olympics coverage nearly 24 hrs. a day and is now almost full) took a VERY long time to come out of standby. I pressed the TiVo and Live TV buttons several times with no response, I stopped trying and maybe 30 seconds later the lights came on and there was HDMI signal to my receiver. I thought that it had died; about a minute total from first attempt to response. I check my recordings and nothing was missing; all recordings are complete. I checked System Info and all looked good there as well. It is set up for OTA only.

Has anyone else experienced such a long delay coming out of standby with no apparent problem afterwards? Just curious.

TiVo Premiere menus- why can't they all look good?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 08/03/2012 - 11:19
I have noticed that when you drill into a menu, such as to the Season Pass sub-menu, the text and lettering gets real large. They look like SD menus up converted to HD. Why can't they make it all look congruent?

Gymnastics ratings leaped off the

TiVo Blog - Fri, 08/03/2012 - 08:31
Gymnastics ratings leaped off the charts of TiVo’s Top Moments for Day 6 of the Olympics. The most-watched moment was Gabby Douglas winning the gold medal for Women’s Gymnastics All-Around Final, followed by Douglas’ sparkling floor routine and Aly Raisman’s slips on the balance beam. Aly Raisman was team USA’s last hope for a high score on balance beam. NBC commentators and American audiences cried out as Raisman flailed and lost her balance along with her claim to a medal. Another nail biting moment: Gabby Douglas’s unsuccessful challenge to the title of Aliya Mustafina, Russian gymnast Continue Reading

Clip Recordings

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 08/02/2012 - 20:34
I have some 10+ hour olympic recordings that I'd like to clip several hours off the start or end of. Is there any way to clip recordings using the Tivo box?

I'm trying to stay away from doing lots of transferring and converting especially considering the size of the files, but if I can't do it within the Tivo what's the next easiest way?

Shows permanently deleted - recently deleted shows kept?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 08/02/2012 - 20:29
My Family Room Premier permanently deleted all the kids shows today. I re-purposed it to record Olympics for these couple weeks and have been carefully deleting Olympics shows to prevent it from deleting all the kids shows. I figured this was easier than setting all the kids shows to keep until delete since there are so many of them.

Last night, I finished watching Olympics shows and deleted all the Olympics from the TiVo. There were still a bunch (50-70 episodes) of various kids shows at that time.

When I get home tonight, my son tells me all his shows are gone. Sure enough, he's down to just one episode of one show. I look in the recently deleted folder and find only Olympics episodes that were recorded between 7/27 and 8/1. Only about 25% of the disk is used.

So, for some reason, the 10 or so Olympics episodes in recently deleted took precedence over the shows that had not been deleted and all the kids shows but one were lost.

Has anyone seen this happen? Any idea how to avoid it in the future? Now that they're gone, it doesn't really matter. I can't get them back until the Olympics are done.

Series 1: Will Clear Program Data not force Guided Setup

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 08/02/2012 - 16:38
Can I run "Clear Program Data" and have it do that and not start Guided Setup?

Why I care:
My Series 1 has failed with "Failed while loading series" for the last month.
So far I have:
Unplugged from phone for 3 days
Run Kickstart 57
Reset Thumb Ratings.

I'm afraid to run guided setup because I've read about the possibility of getting stuck in that if there is a problem loading program data during that procedure.

So I'd like to run Clear Program Data...but a TiVo rep just told me that option will go into Guided Setup.

Is he right?
