WD External Hard Drive issue

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 05/14/2012 - 08:04
After the software update, my premiere can no longer communicate with my WD external hard drive. I get the message stating Tivo cannot find it. I must attach it or remove it. After 10+ reboots of the Tivo premiere and the WD hard drive, no luck. Any suggestions?

HD recording hours conversion to SD recording hours

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 05/14/2012 - 07:23
[My Tivo is very old SAT-T60 and I must upgrade for reasons mentioned in other threads]:(

Many TIVO (and other DVRs) quote recording capacity for HD.

I don't care much about HD--or at least I care more about recording more hours.

I assume that I can choose to record SD to get more hours...??

Other question: What is a good conversion factor? For example, if a box says 50 hours HD, can I then (if conversion factor is 4) say that I can use that box to record 200 hours?:)

Thanks

Tivo Problems

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 05/13/2012 - 21:32
Hello, I have tivo series 3 and of late it has started not working well. It's kind of a strange problem but I hope someone on here can help me out. We have it hooked up to a regular antenna, and it has always worked well, but a few days ago the shows started to not get fully recorded, the menu was taking longer to bring up, it's basically been on the fritz. At first I assumed it must be the hard drive b/c that had failed once before but here's the kicker: I found out it works fine WITHOUT the antenna plugged into it.

That's right, once I plug the antenna in it starts having problems for some reason. An interesting piece of info is when I have the antenna unplugged and I'm in the tivo menu the "TIVO guy" in the top left moves normally, but once I plug the antenna in he starts lagging out, it's weird, anyone ever heard about anything like this? Also is there anyway to use the "cable" input with a antenna?

Sorry, if I seem stupid about this stuff, but I really would appreciate any help. Thanks, Kelly

Game of Thrones - "A Man Without Honor" - 5/13/12

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 05/13/2012 - 21:06
Holy crap. I think Theon is trying to rival my hatred of Joffrey. Was that Rickon and Bran hanging???? WTF. Don't look down you little f!ck like you're full of regret. I really hope someone is pulling a fast one.

John Snow is in big trouble. That wildling taunting him about his "bone" was hilarious though. Poor guy.

Arya is too smart for her own good. I think Tywin is growing much too fond of her for HIS own good. Something has got to go down with that situation soon.

Jorah is really all that Dany has left. She best be nice to him. That dude from the house of the undead is freaky. And I so wanted that knife to really go through him.

I cannot believe that Jamie killed that dude. He was practically worshiping him! And for what? He didn't get far. Then his smack talk to Cat was not smart. I know she won't kill him but I bet she puts a hurting on him.

Oh no. Poor Sansa is capable of giving Joffrey a baby. I pray that doesn't really happen!

Am I supposed to feel bad for Cercei? I could see that Tyrion did. I almost thought for a second he was going to console her. I was waiting on her to be nasty to him for even thinking about it.

Around The World in 80 Plates

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 05/13/2012 - 21:01
Anyone watching this show on Bravo? It's kind of a combination of The Amazing Race and Top Chef if you can imagine that. There are two teams of chefs and they will be in a different city each week. The first week was London. The challenge for each team is to prepare food for which their location is known. In London each team prepared a menu of pub food and the patrons voted their favorites. The losing team members vote off one of their group so there is already scheming and conniving going on. Cat Cora and Curtis Stone are the hosts/judges. Nigella Lawson also made an appearance. Next stop is Lyon, France.

What the heck happened to my extra minutes?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 05/13/2012 - 20:32
I have all my season passes set to record one minute before and after the show, but my TiVo just recorded only 58 minutes of Once Upon A Time. Whyfor? There were no conflicting recordings. The recording history doesn't even mention Once Upon A Time (so it apparently thinks it recorded it normally). So now I need to download a pirate copy to see the last few minutes of the show. Aargh!

Once Upon A Time - " A Land Without Magic" - FINALE 5/13/12

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 05/13/2012 - 20:05
Wow just a few thoughts before I unpause GoT.

1. I knew I was right about Regina loving Henry. Maybe it was Emma's kiss that was needed to bring him back and break the curse but I did feel a tiny bit sorry for Regina there for a second.
2. BELLE! How did Jefferson know she was there? What does he gain in getting her out?
3. If Gold was going to the well to bring back magic, does it matter to him that the curse is broken? He was bringing it back either way, right? Only now Belle remembers him.
4. Snow/Charming! So happy that David the bore is officially gone (at least his personality is, which is all that matters)... gosh Charming is so awesome. Every moment with him in this episode was made of win.
5. "If I were you, your Magesty, I'd find a place to hide" heee! Indeed!

Can't wait for next season!

6.2 to 6.3b

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 05/13/2012 - 16:24
I am one of those that is struggling with 6.2 on my virgin hughes sd80.
I have an hr10-250 that I caked a while ago with 6.3b. I was just experimenting on this box which i never activated. (I used a 40gig drive, its all i had at that time). Anyway, could I use this drive with 6.3b in the sd80 to get back locals? If 6.3b will work i would even pay the $20 and get a card for this one since I already have HD on the account. (naturally i would recake to a larger drive if this version 6.3b will update). Thanks for any help.

use TiVo as music juke-box. Leave tv off?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 05/13/2012 - 16:09
can this be done either through my networked pc interface or through an android app on my WiFi tablet? My music resides on my pc. I have a s3 TiVo. I want to play my music through my TiVo without having to turn on my tv. I've used my s3 to access my mp3 music on my pc before using TiVo interface before so I know TiVo can do It. I'm hoping an alternate interface is available. Also, last I checked flac music wasn't supported. Is this still so?

Elite as moca gateway

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 05/13/2012 - 14:43
Hi,

Can the moca gateways in elites used to extend a wired ethernet network?

My proposed topology is as follows: internet gateway colocated by a tivo elite, this elite connected by wired connection. A second tivo elite connected to network via moca bridge in first elite. Finally, a wifi router dropped off the wired port of the second elite.

I know linux boxes can be set up gateways, etc. I don't know if one could/would want to do this with elites.

FWIW, I currently use a pair of netgear moca boxes to extend wired network to wifi router located where second elite would be. (These are my only moca devices). TWC always complains moca boxes are source of all my troubles (even when disconnected). Would be nice to loose a couple of boxes, dividers, and complaints from the peanut gallery if elites can be so configured.

Any thoughts?

constantly receiving bogus "Programming will run out on..." message

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 05/13/2012 - 14:23
I am not sure if this is the same as other topics on the forum. I know it was similar to some I read, but was not sure if their issue was identical. Please let me know if a previous thread addressed my issue.
Since about January of this year, I started receiving a message on the bottom of the 'Now Playing' and 'Find Programs' screens warning that my programming will run out on a date, usually a week away, and that I needed to connect to the tivo service. I see that the last connection was successful and then do a service connection successfully. I also search for shows both by channel and date, and can see programming available beyond the warning date.
The first time it happened, I restarted the tivo and the message went away. A couple of weeks later, the message came back with a new date. Again, a service connection is successful, I can see programs beyond the warning date, and a restart causes the message goes away.
A couple weeks later, the message came back. I ignored it and received a message warning me to connect to the service. The day the 'warning date' came, I was not able to search for any shows, even though I was able to the day before. A restart fixed it. My concern is that it happens every few weeks. Up until January, this happened about every six to nine months since I bought my tivo in early 2009.
I have the R65216 model with a 1TB WD external hard drive. I wanted to know if this is common for the tivo model I have, and if there is anything I can do to fix it or expect to restart my tivo every two to three weeks. Thanks.

Shows I expected to hate but ended up liking

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 05/13/2012 - 10:34
There is a thread for shows that people expected to like and didn't. This thread is for shows that you expected to dislike but were willing to try out and liked.

Smash is one for me. I watched the pilot and thought this looks OK. I collected all of the season but a few shows that had not been aired yet. I am throughly enjoying it. I know nothing about Broadway and the names they drop. Ironically, they dropped the name Neaderlander and then an ad came up for a musical that will be playing in Los Angeles, a Neaderlander production. So they are dropping real names.

Missing is another one. The premise sounds lame but I stuck with it after the pilot and enjoy it. I am hoping it comes to a conclusion since it has been canceled.

Glee - my sister was watching an episode. I ended up catching up using Netflix and then a basic cable channel repeated the entire run. I don't enjoy it as much as at first but still do.

Once Upon a Time has grown on me and so has Grimm.

ZeeBox Remote

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 05/13/2012 - 04:33
Despite feeling that it was probably for those that still felt the need to watch live TV, I thought I'd have a look.

As I thought; not for me.

However, I was surprised to discover that I could change channel from Android using it!

Anyone investigated this?

I really want TiVoWeb like access, but buying an iPad just for this is an overkill.

Some access was revoked at the software update - thanks VM! But it seems that there is a non-apple platform still allowed.

I am happy to pcap the traffic (once I've retrieved a hub from my work locker), but have no skill to write the necessary code (Android or html).

Friday i take the deposits to the bank and one of them was $550 short. I did not take the money and my area manager knows I did not take the money but the owner said to fire everyone involved. To make things worse I had two interviews scheduled for Friday one at 10am and one at 1:30pm and had to cancel them because my shift manager had to go to the hospital because her boyfriend (who I am pretty sure is the one that stole the money) ran her over with her car while she was trying to get him to give it back and there was no one else that could work for her. I really need to learn not to answer my phone. Of course the two jobs will not reschedule the interview as calling off from an interview is the ultimate sin of job hunting. My area manager told me to use him as a reference. Of course now I have to lie about why I left or no one will hire me out of fear that I am a thief. I am a terrible at lying. Thanks for reading. I just felt like whining about it to someone.
