FS: Premiere w/ extended warranty

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 06/14/2012 - 18:19
I'm looking to sell my Premiere (45 hour) with the extended warranty that covers the unit till 1/2014. I am switching to satellite so I no longer need it. I have 2 options available.

Option 1: Buy the Premiere for $60 plus cost of shipping and I will transfer the service to you for the remainder of my plan, which is up 1/2013. You will have to pay the service charge of $19.95 till that time, then you can switch the plan with a new commitment after that.

Option 2: Buy the Premiere at $100 plus shipping, with no existing plan.

Comes in original box, with all accessories. There are no problems with the Premiere whatsoever.

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 06/14/2012 - 18:13
Any idea why my folder in My Shows for my PC Movies is gone? I confirmed Tivo Desktop is running, I toggled the setting to Beacon/ and Bonjour but I am still not seeing it.

Any thoughts, I can not play Music, Video's or Pictures from my PC... but Tivo Desktop Manager is running and I can transfer files from the Tivo to my PC.

I'm looking at getting a Tivo Premiere (currently have a Tivo HD). One of the coolest features of the Premiere is the Multi-room streaming. I wondering if there is any software out there for Windows than can PRETEND to be another Tivo Premiere box. That way, I could stream to my PC.

Any help or ideas would be appreciated!

Comcast Cable Card Error Screen: "In order to start cable service..."

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 06/14/2012 - 16:04
"In order to start cable service for this device, please contact your cable provider."

Anybody know what the cause of this error screen? I see it maybe once every 2-3 days. If I hit "clear" on the remote, it goes away; however, it's annoying that it's happening at all.

I have Comcast in the San Francisco Bay Area. I'm using a Premier box with multi-stream cable card.

Convert .tivo files to mkv with Dolby Digital 5.1 audio

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 06/14/2012 - 15:12
Does anyone know of stand-alone media player (such as the WD Media Player) playing the .tivo files?

If I convert it to mkv using VideoRedo, does it retain the 5.1 Dolby Digital surround audio?

The Chew - daytime food show

Does anyone else watch this?

I record it and watch it during dinner. I enjoy the hosts and sometimes the food, but I don't think I could ever make much of it. They have great guests and some fun themed shows.

Using TiVo Premiere Elite - Windows Vista PC

Upgrading and impact on service fees

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 06/14/2012 - 11:42
So it's been a while since I've done anything TiVo. I currently have a Series2 with lifetime (which I haven't even used for over a year), and an upgraded Tivo HD system (I think I put a 1TB drive in there) for which I pay 6.95/month for.

I am looking at the Premiere and possibly the XL/elite, but am wondering how it will affect my pricing. Will my monthly go up if I replace my Tivo HD with a premiere or elite?

I may bite on something like the woot deal if it comes around again, but I'd like to know what I'm getting into beforehand :)

Final Q: Is the standard premiere box as easy to upgrade as the previous tivos? Briefly looking in the upgrade forum, it appears there is a procedure that looks straightforward. Even so, a 2tb upgraded premiere vs an elite at about the same price is no contest.

Edit: Oh geez, nevermind. I just noticed that I started getting charged 12.95/month. I will need to look into that!

Quick One - clear and restore without cablecard?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 06/14/2012 - 09:57
I am planning to drop off my 2 unused cable boxes and 2 x S3 cable cards back to Comcast today.

Can I perform a clear/restore on the S3 unit without the cable cards installed?

Sold S3 but buyer has not xfr to their account?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 06/14/2012 - 07:20
I sold my S3 on Ebay about a month ago. The buyer rec'd and provided positive feedback.

Just checked my account and noticed the box is still on there. Should I call Tivo and tell them I no longer have this box?

Should I be concerned that new buyer has not activated this box on their account yet?

STOP button for Netflix, PLEASE

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 06/14/2012 - 01:27
Please add a stop button for Netflix.
Or perhaps a "Menu" button.

Currently to stop watching a Netflix program I have to...
1)Press the "Tivo" button, thusly exiting Netflix
2) Scroll down to "ON demand"
3) Press "Select"
4) Press "Select" again :(
5) Wait for Neflix to load

All that just to go from a show to the Netflix menu.

Gerrrr how irritating


Lack of audio with Hulu.

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 06/14/2012 - 01:18
Why do I often lack audio with Hulu??

1) Does NOT occur 100% of the time, maybe 70%
2) Yes, the volume is set correctly
3) Yes, I have audio with other features and menus.

Please advise.


Are you going to tune in to "Arrow" on the CW?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 06/14/2012 - 00:40
Smallville spinoff (or is it a prequel? :p) chronicling the adventures of Oliver Queen.


I'll at least check it out, but I don't think it will be the same without Justin Hartley in the lead role.

Cinema Predictions

TiVo Blog - Wed, 06/13/2012 - 22:39
During the past year TiVo has been studying box office performances in relation to the fast-forward rates of movie spots – and the correlation between the two is undeniable. Fast-forward rate is simply the percent a spot is skipped during live plus seven days of time-shifted viewing. On average the fast-forward rates for movie spots, [...]

First new episodes of DALLAS 6/13/12

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 06/13/2012 - 22:22
Did anyone miss the faces of the actors being flashed on the screen during the themesong and opening credits?

They gave the names, but no faces.

Is this a 21st century thing, or something?

You really like the things glued on the wall, don't you?

The Killing - Should I Watch?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 06/13/2012 - 19:30
My intention is not to have spoilers in this thread. My set up/question may have a broad, generalized spoiler, however, depending on how you define a spoiler. If you haven't seen the show, proceed with caution. For those who have seen it; please - no spoilers.

I have not watched this show. I thought it looked really interesting and then about the time I was going to start watching it, the first season ended in a way that seemed to leave a lot of viewers unhappy. (I know this simply from reading headlines here and there.) So I never got around to watching. I watch other AMC shows, and it still looks like I might enjoy this show, but don't want to start if it's not worth the trouble (meaning I'll probably get frustrated with it and stop watching). I haven't heard anything, good or bad, about the second season.

I'm just curious as to whether people who have watched it, and are still watching it, would recommend it.

Why are TiVo’s on sale? Woot Elite TiVo

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 06/13/2012 - 19:04
What going on? Why are the new TiVo’s on sale?


First Tivo reduced the price and now they are being dump by Woot. I think even Amazon reduced the price.

Could this mean:
  1. A new or better TiVo box coming out.
  2. A deal with Comcast and or Cox to use TiVo boxs.
