Lost Program Information

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 06/18/2012 - 15:18
At no notice we have lost all program information from our TIVO box so cannot see what is due to be shown on TV, our favorite channels and cannot record anything.
We contacted Virgin Media who do not know how to fix the problem. Their only suggestion is to reformat the whole Tivo box. We would therefore lose all our recordings (including all my 7 year old son's favorite dinosaur and wildlife programs). Obviously we are all unhappy about this situation.

Can anybody offer any help with this or advice?

Divorced Drive Comment/ Question

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 06/18/2012 - 13:22
I put a new drive in my Series 3 (original) this weekend (went from internal + external to a single internal drive). It was my understanding the recordings were striped across both drives when using an external drive. However, I had a number of shows on the internal drive after the divorce, some of them even recorded in the past couple months. There did not seem to be a pattern to the recordings left on the internal disk, but I had assumed only recordings from before the addition of the external drive would exist. I had the external drive for three years, has something changed or am I simply remembering wrong about how recordings are performed when you have an external and internal HD?

Just curious. I simply unmarried the drives to save the internal, but I do want to know what is going on here.

Lifespan of the Series3

Hello, I'm considering buying a used Series3 or HD. Do these have a typical lifespan before they need work/replacement, or is it not possible to tell? Thanks for your help.

Eliminating Preview Window

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 06/18/2012 - 12:37
I could swear that I used to eliminate the Preview Window in the menus by hitting the Zoom button (toggle on and off). Now that button takes me back to the recording I was watching.

Did something change or is it just poor memory (me, not TiVo).

True Blood S5E02 "Authority Always Wins" 06/17/12

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 06/18/2012 - 10:42
Good episode this week, I liked all of the authority stuff.

Looks like Tara is at least partially there, and does not yet appear to be retarded in any way.

Based on the interactions in the Authority boardroom I guess we are to assume that Russel is being nursed to health by the group that wants to stop the mainstreaming initiative and treat the humans like meat.

I laughed when Jason said he has slept with "almost" all of the women in town.

I was surprised when Jessica didn't agree to sell Jason :)

HD Menus-Where is the TiVo Suggestions?

Where is the list of TiVo Suggestions in the HD Menus?

In the SD Menu it is front and center under the Find My Shows banner, but in HD Menus I can't find any way to get to it.

The Killing -- "What I Know" OAD 6.17.12 -- Season Finale

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 06/17/2012 - 21:07
Say what you will about the merits of this show; the acting was SUPERB. The scene where Terry confesses to killing Rosie was one of the best I've ever seen.

Connection Interrupted

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 06/17/2012 - 21:02
I have a Tivo HD where all of a sudden lately it cannot connect to the service. I am using a Tivo G adapter with Verizon FiOS. I have tried everything - opening ports, rebooting, rebooting the TiVo, etc etc. Every computer on my network is acting perfectly fine. I have no Tivo service data what do i do?

I'm getting really frustrated

Netflix and black screen

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 06/17/2012 - 16:14
I searched and haven't found this issue on here, so I was wondering if anyone else ran into this:

I have a series 4 XL Tivo and lately when watching Netflix through the Tivo, the screen flicks to black frequently during play. The audio keeps working, and the screen only stays black for a second, but it happens SEVERAL times, no matter what I'm watching. I have watched shows via Netflix on my laptop and iPad and the issue does not happen there, but it happens every time with the Tivo. Anyone have any insight? Thanks!

adding season pass slow.... / upgrading

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 06/17/2012 - 16:07
I have s3 TiVo. When I add a season pass it takes at least 3 minutes before I can do anything. Would this be faster if I deleted some? If so is there a a way online I can delete them faster? Most of my season passes are for "first run" and will never run again I'm expecting delivery of xl4 in a few days to replace my S3. Do I go online to migrate SP's between boxes? Is it also a good idea to remove old SP's before I do this? Is their any pre- maintenance I should do? Do I get my thumb ratings moved over? Anything else I should know about switching?

Tivo app - no guide info

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 06/17/2012 - 13:37
I have just recently moved to a Tivo Premiere device partially because I wanted to be able to use the iPad app. So far the app has worked fine, except the guide page is totally blank and says "no channels found". However on the Tv, i can see the guide info just fine. I have closed down the app and restarted. Restarted the Tivo. Tried searching the forums. I have now run out of ideas.

Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance for your help!

Hulu App UI

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 06/17/2012 - 11:36
I've been using the Netflix app since it was introduced but haven't tried Hulu until now. I just signed up for the 7-day free trail.

I'm having a little trouble learning how to best manage the shows/series that I'm watching. I've put some shows (individual episodes, apparently) into the Queue, and I've marked some shows as favorites (which show up as subscriptions). Is there any kind of bookmark to indicate what episode you're up to? I haven't been able to find anything.

Thanks...

Happy Father's Day lost all channels but 378, 400, and 739

TiVo is a S1 Phillips DSR6000 (note does not say 6000R on label)
software version 3.1.0-01-1-001
account in good standing
connected to phone line
made daily call with no problem

Had been stuck at 70% but I let it sit in standby
for 24 hours and it must have cleared
as
It returned to normal operation.

Until now

I woke up to having only 3 channels
378, 400, and 739

"Now Playing" works fine.

Anybody have any comments?
Would a new hard drive solve my issue?

Deleting Program After watching

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 06/17/2012 - 08:08
Maybe this is something i have not figured out yet or the way it is. When i finish watching a program, and say FF to the complete end, i am not prompted to delete or keep the episode right away. instead it basically pauses it self and i have to 30 sec skip or FF again to get the delete prompt

Transfer Show "from beginning" not working?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 06/16/2012 - 21:27
I have 2 networked Tivos - a new Premiere XL and a Series 2. When I transfer any show from the Series 2, I select to transfer it "from beginning". And yet - the show appears on my Premiere XL with only the part that I haven't watched yet. Only half of the show is there on the green play-bar at the bottom of the screen. Clearly this is not working properly, correct? Has anyone else seen this behavior?

Need help with Sony Receiver and Tivo Premiere

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 06/16/2012 - 21:03
Have Tivo Premiere using Streambaby. My connection is HDMI and I am using 3 speakers (left, center, right) in my family room.

We are only using a Sony DA3500ES and don't like the sound. The audio is not clear when watching movie with streambaby. There are no bars when lowering, increasing volume which is quite annoying. So the volume is either too low or too high.

Should I purchase another receiver to improve sound quality? If so, any suggestions on brand/model?

Or is there something else I should do? Please let me know. Thanks.

FS 2 Premiere (one or both may be XL), 1 Series 3 and 1 Series 2

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 06/16/2012 - 20:54
Hello,

My husband and I have had a child with extra needs and we've lost all time for TV :( We're looking to sell all of our Tivos. We have 2 Premieres both with annual subscriptions. One expires 7/1 the other expires 8/27. You can take over that service and continue to use annual instead of monthly subscriptions. We have 1 Series 3 HD and one Series 2. We also have 2 of the Wireless G adapters. I believe at least one of the Premieres is an XL, but if you could let me know how to confirm that, I'll figure out what kind they are.
