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?

BBC Olympic coverage

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 05/15/2012 - 07:49
Well this all looks jolly exciting. Although I'm not much of a sports fan I was quite looking forward to seeing how the new digital age would affect coverage, and this looks impressive. I'd have had time to fully test it, except I just landed a job, starting tomorrow.

Looks like TiVo stuff will be working in time then, and I must look out for the Beeb's Android app.


old and slow

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 05/15/2012 - 05:44
I have an old RCA 80 DVR. As of late it has gotten very slow to do anything requested. If you advance in the now playing list it can take up to a minute for the screen to change. This is just one example of the slowness.
This has seemingly happened suddenly starting a few months ago There are not any more saved forever recordings now than before the slowness.
I think I read in a post on this forum that there was a recent software downlod that caused some folks units to slow.
If so is there any way I can force the unit to revert to an earlier version?
I'm thinking it may be time to put this unit "out to pasture" but wifey hates to retire anything that's still working.


Smash - "Bombshell" (Season Finale) - S01E15 - 05/14/2012

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 05/14/2012 - 23:08
Ho-lee-crap. Now THAT is what a season finale should be. Plenty of twists and turns, and non-stop rollercoaster action for the whole hour. AND Ellis got fired! WOO!

To me that really was the perfect ending for the play: essentially the ghost of Marilyn hoping and begging that people don't forget her. Death plus a last word.

I think Ivy might have been ok if her mother hadn't shown up. That really pushed her over the edge.

Eureka 5/14/2012 "Jack of All Trades"

NICE ABS! (And nice rear view, too)

I liked the Sam Beckett/Quantum Leap "Oh, Boy!" after he jumped into Zane.

Of the set, I liked Jack as Fargo best.

As much as I like Quinn, I'm glad that Barney is marrying Robin...

And I loved Robin's vet stuff with Lily. Very funny...

And little baby Marvin definitely has the coolest middle name ever...

Replacement Premiere XL Missing Season Passes

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 05/14/2012 - 20:25
I had my Premiere XL replaced under warranty and I was told by the CSR that my Season Passes would remain intact and would be picked up by the new unit. Does anyone know if this happens automatically or is there something I need to do? I have had it operating since about 6PM EDT today. I logged into the web-based Season Pass Manager and it seems to show my current unit but there of course were no SP listings. I did have to change my privacy setting when I logged in and there was a note about it taking 24 hours to take effect but I am not sure that note had anything to do with my circumstance.

Any help/suggestions are appreciated.

The Killing | "Off The Reservation" | Season 2 Ep 8 | 5-13-12

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 05/14/2012 - 18:54
Decent Ep. The search for Holder was nicely done - tense and worrisome.

Wonder what they expect to find on the 10th floor, and how in the hell are they going to get up there even if they do get the key? And now that Linden no longer has her badge, how does she manage this? Using Holder?

Mereille Enos' character had a great scene with her son. That was heartbreaking.

Johnny Carson: King of Late Night - Anyone gonna watch?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 05/14/2012 - 13:31
This is on tonight on PBS American Masters.

To me Carson has always been one of the most interesting people ever on TV. While I was never a huge late night fan, I did enjoy watching Johnny from time to time. The number of comedians he gave their first break to is in the dozens if not hundreds.

Summer viewing

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 05/14/2012 - 13:29
What shows that have been on in previous summers are you looking forward to watching?

For me...most of the USA slate
Rookie Blue (if it's coming back...generally hate cop shows, but for some reason, I like this one)
Big Brother (I quit on it last year because of Rachel, but will probably give it another shot)

Any new shows look interesting? I haven't started looking at that yet, but as usual, I'll avoid all the AI / DWTS clones and most other reality stuff. There was one, I think on ABC that looked interesting....where the contestants had to escape from some sort of bondage, I think one was on a ship, another from a prison cell (Alcatraz?)

The Celebrity Apprentice "And Then There Were Two" OAD 5/13/12

I really thought Aubrey was going to be one of the final 2. Having lost so many tasks, she didn't deserve to be, but I thought Trump would pick her for the drama. No need though since she was going to be on the task if not leading it.

No Dayana, no Lou.

Lisa giving $ to Clay's charity- what is Arsenio going to say about that!

Clay is absolutely right for not OKing a mural without seeing something on paper.

TiVo no longer automatically changing channels.

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 05/14/2012 - 11:03
I have a Toshiba Series 2 SD-H400 with TiVo Basic. I have the Scientific Atlanta Explorer 2100 cable box. I use an IR blaster to change channels. My cable provider is Cox. Yesterday TiVo froze while I was in TiVo central. No matter what button I pressed on the remote it wouldn't budge. I unplugged it, plugged it back in, and it was working again. But now, it no longer changes channels. The screen shows TiVo changing the channel at the top of the screen, but the cable box is not receiving the information and actually changing the channel.

I'm sure everything is plugged in the way it's supposed to because all I unplugged was the TiVo power cord and plugged it back in.

I could've sworn the "Bypass" light on the cable box was lit before and now it isn't, but maybe I'm wrong and it wasn't lit before so I'm not sure if that had anything to do with it. What could the problem be? Thanks for any help you guys can provide!
