Nashville Trailer

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 05/15/2012 - 17:21

I'm very torn about this one. I love Connie Britton but HATE Hayden Panettiere (she might be my least favorite actress of all time). That being said, the trailer looks good.

Best current info on multi-room extender for XL4?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 05/15/2012 - 16:47
Can someone direct me to a thread with the latest intelligence regarding TiVo's plans for offering some kind of extender box that I can plug into a second TV to stream content from my XL4?

Looks kinda interesting, but I assume it's going to die a fate like Flash Forward.

TiVo not detecting wired network connection

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 05/15/2012 - 14:45
I recently switched to FIOS from Comcast and am trying to set my TiVo Premier up. It is in the same room as the router, so I thought this should be no problem and I plugged an ethernet cable in in the same way as I had with the Comcast setup. When I go to set up the connection though, it says "Network Not Found" and "The TiVo Box has not detected a network connection." Does anyone know if there's a trick to getting the TiVo to connect to FIOS?

The router is an Actiontec MI42WR (and yes, I did search the forum before posting but it looks like most of the problems are related to wireless connections).

House "Holding On" - OAD 5/14/12

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 05/15/2012 - 14:30
Interesting - Wilson will die in about five months without House's help, but House has to spend the next six months in jail. I wonder how much time will elapse between the end of this episode and the start of the finale.

I had a feeling those people who claimed to have been helped by Wilson were fakes, although I half-expected that one of them would turn out to be real.

Something else I noticed: nobody referred to Remy/Thirteen either by name or by number.

As for next week's retrospective, I wonder which actors end up getting mentioned and which ones are forgotten (the way the Everybody Loves Raymond series retrospective managed to forget the three siblings that played Ray's children).

Sort by series/episode

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 05/15/2012 - 14:13
Would be very useful if TiVo had ability to sort series recording by Series/Episode.
While new series are (usually) broadcast in correct sequence that is not the case for archive stuff.
For example - I auto-record MASH and prefer to watch in original broadcast order (continuity of characters and occasional story lines) but ... broadcast on multiple channels over time in different orders make this a real pain to navigate.

Retention deal within the 30-day return period?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 05/15/2012 - 13:32
I am half way through my 30-day trial period... undecided if I should keep the unit for the $15 monthly fee or the $499 lifetime fee.

Does anyone know that if I try to cancel within the 30 day trial period, would I be offered any kind of retention or discounted deal to keep me as a customer?

Why Americans can't watch TV shows as soon as they air

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 05/15/2012 - 12:46

Someone posted in another thread that Episodes is already airing in the UK. It won't air on Showtime until later this year. Then I came across this article that discusses some of the reasons behind it and what a screwed up system they have developed.

I ended up being able to obtain Episodes anyway. This only decreases my incentive to subscribe to Showtime.

I think Doctor Who fans have been left in the same boat since it often airs in the UK long before it airs here.

New Program listed as Repeat?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 05/15/2012 - 12:32
Just happened to see a promo for the new Tom Selleck Jesse Stone TV movie, "Jesse Stone: Benefit of the Doubt" and wondering why my auto-record wishlist feature didn't pick it up. Apparently, it is listed as a "Repeat" (it is new) and my auto-record feature was set for "First Run Only."

Sure enough there is no "New" label next to the show in the guide.

Programming data glitch?

No signal issue

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 05/15/2012 - 12:32
Some of my basic HD stations NBC CBS are either not tuning in at all or are very pixilated. Plus some of my pay premium stations (HBO) are not coming in. This is on my Premiere XL.

My regular premiere seems to be fine. Not having this issue. This premiere is running the SD UI, and the XL that is having the issues is running the HD UI. Both boxes have the new spring update.

I have never seen this issue prior to the spring update.

Any thoughts on what I should try? I have verizon/cablecard.

New Netflix App

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 05/15/2012 - 12:07
So I turn on the bedroom TV this morning to see I've received the new service update. With excitement, I checked out the new YouTube and Netflix apps. YouTube looked exactly the same. Netflix returned an error and wouldn't load. Probably needs a reboot. (I hope.)

Went upstairs to find YouTube and Netflix working properly but both are extremely sluggish. In Netflix, pressing PAUSE results in a 4-5 second lag before it actually pauses. Very annoying when reaching for a ringing telephone. :down:

I'll probably stick to my Apple TV for Netflix & YouTube content.

Girls "Hard Being Easy" S1E5 OAD 5/13/12

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 05/15/2012 - 11:34
I think what I like most about Girls is these characters all seem so real! It is unflinching and honest.

"I've decided on you" sounded like what real relationships are.

"You don't have a suing app on your iphone"

Marnie and Charlie this week were just like real life. Marnie was sad she didn't have Charlie anymore even though when they were together she was annoyed by him all the time and contemplated how to leave him. So she decides to get him back. She gets him back, remembers that he is smothering and breaks up with him again.

I liked seeing the gay ex when he was straight.

Jessa had sex with her ex for no other reason than to prove she could make him cheat on his girlfriend.

Hannah finally found a way to have some control in the bedroom with Adam. And they both liked it.

Hawaii 5-0, Season Finale **SPOILERS**

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 05/15/2012 - 11:21

Yes I know this revision of H 5-0 is not the greatest in the world, and this McGarrett is some kind of super cop that can do EVERYTHING! But its still not too bad in an action movie kind of way.

This season finale really has a lot of cliff hangers:

1. Shellbourn (sp?) is really McGarrett's mother.
2. Kono was thrown over board and may be drowning.
3. Chin Ho's wife (the always nice to see Reiko Aylesworth!!) was shot and may be dying.
4. Danno has to fight a custody hearing to prevent his daughter from leaving.

Was there anything else? Did I foget anything?

It should be interesting to see how it all turns out as I assume it was renewed for another season. Can anyone confirm that its renewed?


A couple of minor bugs with Elite

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 05/15/2012 - 10:27
I have an Elite with the latest software. I use the SDUI. Two problems I have noticed.

1. When I press tivo-2 to bring up the todo list, sometimes it will stay for a few seconds and then jump randomly to a later day. You can't go back to the current day from that screen.

2. Sometimes the menu will lock up and the TiVo will not respond to the remote. If it is recording something, it continues recording. After a few minutes the screen will unlock and then behave normally.

TiVo Transfer

How do I change the default folder for TiVo Transfer on my Mac? I want to download shows from my TiVo Premier Elite to an external hard drive connected to my Mac.

The Bachelorette : Emily Maynard

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 05/15/2012 - 09:02
I really hope Emily and Little Ricky don't get hurt. I actually hope Emily falls for none of these guys, because if she does, what are the chances of it lasting? Even Chris Harrison is getting divorced.

Some of the guys:

Helicopter Guy: what a doosh. And what is a "luxury brand consultant"? Sounds made-up to me. Emily is not going to be impressed with his claims of "having a few dollars in his pocket". The Hendrick family is a North Carolina dynasty and I am sure Emily has more money than this guy.

Egg Carrying Guy: reminded me of "guard and protect your heart", but in a way, a single mom might like the sentiment. It's going to be bad when that egg gets sat upon or boiled in a hot tub.

Black Guy: never had a chance.

Former football player : seems really sweet but needs a new haircut.

Guy with a kid: he will last till the end.

Songwriter Guy : needs to throw away his word-a-day calendar.
"We have all of these disparate facets that ultimately converge."

Guy on the porch that collapsed: nice guy.

Water company guy: I'm opposed to bottled water but at least his company does some good.

Race Car Driver: Man, he is hot. And Emily might enjoy going to races again and talking about racing.

Skateboard Guy: Emily needs a man, not a boy.

Grandma Guy: nice callback to last season

Guy with a boom box :Emily needs a man, not a boy.

Guy with You Are Beautiful Note: The note was a very cute touch.

Guy With Six Kids : A guy with one sweet 11 year old is one thing, a guy with a bunch of teenage boys is another.

Former TV stars who you would make a point to watch their new show

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 05/15/2012 - 07:51
Seeing that Matthew Perry of Friends fame has gotten ANOTHER new show and that the network has made a point of advertising that he's a part of it, makes me wonder. Are there any former TV stars that, no matter what the premise of the show, you would make a point to watch because (s)he's in it?
