What the heck was that facility Grace was in? I counted 5 red Xs that represented the pendants. Wasn't there supposed to be 12? Wonder where the other 7 are.

Stuttering, video loss, what's going on?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 11/13/2012 - 01:11
I've had this unit for less than a year and now it's starting to stutter and drop video. It's getting very annoying. I've read about the "kickstart" tests, but can't seem to get into that menu.

Is my TiVo dying already?!?!?

Shows will not transfer from Tivo or computer

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 11/12/2012 - 23:10
I have two tivo s4s and a mac running pyTivo.

One tivo can transfer files just fine, the new tivo cannot. When I try to transfer recordings from the tivo or the mac, it states that the show has been added to the to do list and will transfer when previous transfers are complete. There are no "previous transfers". I confirm this by looking in the to do list.

I've tried rebooting the box, making multiple calls, and switching between wireless and powerline adapters.

It will stream from the other tivo with no issues, but will not transfer.

The Tivo that works has the newest October update. The other tivo is on the priority list.

AutoPush ffmpeg version & settings

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 11/12/2012 - 21:40
I have pyTiVo, Streambaby, and AutoPush installed. Each seems to use a different version of ffmpeg, or at least different ffmpeg settings (where ever those are). If I watch a program streamed or pulled via pyTiVo or Streambaby the result is an expected full/wide screen video. If the same file is AutoPushed, it shows up squeezed with black side bars. I am guessing it is the ffmpeg version and/or settings. How can I fix this?

Amazon Instant Video TV Pass

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 11/12/2012 - 19:27
I have a "TV Pass" on Amazon Instant Video to The Walking Dead in HD. The "pass" saves me 5% per episode. It automatically bills me each week when a new epsidoes comes out. Using the amazon website I can download it to my S3 or Premiere from work so it is ready on my Tivo when I get home. But they download in SD! :(

I recall reading here if you purchase an Amazon Instant Video using the Tivo menu instead, it will download the HD version.

So, my question is, must I cancel my "TV pass" and just download them via the Tivo menu if I want them in HD on my Tivo?

Tonight I tried "repurchasing" an episode to see if it would recognize I already own it and download in HD. Of course, silly me, it charged me a second time for the episode. :rolleyes:

Premiere performance compered to Series3

I'm considering upgrading to a 4XL from a Series3 and was wondering about general performance comparions - button response, menu response, etc. And/or any other performance enhancements and especially anything that might have actually gotten worse.

DTV DVRs and Tivo Software?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 11/12/2012 - 16:13
Reading this forum in search of new info on random reboots and it raised some other questions.

1) Some users list DirecTV DVRS like R10s and others with 6.4 software. Isn't this the same software I'm running on my SD-DVR40 (upgd to 160)?
DTV sent me one of their new units in 2006 and the software was crap (no Season pass, wishlist, etc.
Have things changed? (I called DTV a couple of years ago and the software was the same.)

2) I can't find any info on the coin battery in the Hughes unit. What does it power? Does it have to be change with the power on?

3) What does Clear and Delete do besides clear settings and recordings?
Does it Key a new HD to the unit?

S3 with lifetime, how much?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 11/12/2012 - 15:42
I'm thinking about upgrading my wife's S3 OLED unit to a Premiere so that we can use the streaming stuff throughout the house. However I'm curious, how much will a S3 unit with lifetime sell for. I have all the original packaging, cables, manuals and remote. I'm trying to decide if I should sell it or give it to a family member.


Tivo Fall 12 Update - New Sounds

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 11/12/2012 - 15:20
Anyone else mildly "annoyed" by the addition of a tivo sound effect when changing channels now? Wish there was a setting to turn this off (without turning off all the very useful sound effects).

Homeland S2E7 " The Clearing" 11/11/12

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 11/12/2012 - 15:07
Great episode except for one thing that's driving me mad:

There's no possible way that Saul would leave Aileen alone in the room, unwatched with his satchel, pens, eye-glasses, and whatever other classified information he had in there. There's just no way he would do that.

Especially after Brody slipped that guy a tiny razor blade and he killed himself, Saul, a CIA legend knows proper protocol like that. Sure, give her some contraband bread, cheese, and even some wine (which is very unlikely, but I'll let that go)... but seriously --- he would know she's a suicide risk like the rest of them.

Also, Carrie sure seems to appear to be back working as a CIA Agent, even though she was never re-instated. She has no credentials or clearance, but she sure can get anywhere and everywhere she needs to.

I am watching it right now.

Not too bad, but really he needs to not wear the outfit from Survivor. Wear a suit dumb A$$..

Receiving slingbox feed

I have a TiVo premiere connected to the Internet. Is there away to log into a slingbox account and view the slingbox feed on my Tv, through my TiVo? The TiVo premiere obviously picks up specific websites, such as Netflix,etc. but there is no actual browser. thanks.

Burn Notice Fall 2-hour premier SPOILERS

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 11/12/2012 - 10:54
Looks like a "semi-reboot" -- they torched the loft, Madeline is moving out, and they killed Card (who I thought was going to be the "Big Baddie" for this season). It'll be interesting if they go in a different direction or if they just line everything up within the new reality.

Question about The Good Wife (Anatomy of a Joke) 11-11-12

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 11/12/2012 - 10:29
I have a question about the ending of this episode. Can anyone explain what was going on with Christina Ricci's closing bit about the birthmark? I was fine up to that point, but her joking about it and Alicia finding it so funny made it very confusing for me.

Was it Cary who has the birthmark?

Is there no such birthmark and Ricci "planted" the story with the campaign worker as a joke?

Was it something completely different that I'm (probably) missing?


Once Upon a Time - S2E07 - "Child of the Moon"

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 11/12/2012 - 10:17
Hmmmm... please tell me I'm wrong. Last season, in the flashback episodes, when Red killed Peter and the hood was finally thrown on her, she wasn't wearing any clothes as they had ripped off during her transformation into the wolf. This season, Red transforms, breaks out of the meat locker, hides in the forest, and wakes up in her clothes. :( For that reason alone, I thought she was set up... someone broke open the meat locker, made it look like a wolf had done it, gassed Red, and carried her out to the forest so it looked like she had become a wolf when she really didn't (they didn't know what would happen on the first full moon). I hope I'm remembering last season wrong.

Poor Red. "I'm not a killer!" as she stood over the body of her mother that she stabbed with the whatever that pointy thing was.

I honestly don't understand why Red had such a problem in current times. She accepted being the wolf in the past, knows how it felt. Did she forget all about that?

I hope we find out why Granny lied to Red. I figure it's because Granny knew that her mother had become a werewolf, and didn't want Red to join the pack.

So the town is up in arms, torches, and pitchforks, riled up by the King, ready to kill Red. Charming saves the day and spirits Red away in the cruiser. Then what does Red do? She chucks the hood and decides to become the wolf for the rest of the night! I hope everyone really believes that she's not dangerous: those pitchforks are still handy.

Ah, Henry and his magic freebie from Rumpelstiltskin. Definitely going to be a way to communicate between worlds. Good thing the time zones line up and Henry and Aurora are both asleep at the same time. :) So, are there really flames there? Henry seemed to be burned by them, but when he got the charm, he stood there like they weren't there. Odd.

To me, an odd episode all the way around. Good but odd.

Hands On The Netgear NeoTV Max Streamer

Zatz Not Funny! - Mon, 11/12/2012 - 10:07
Another week, another streamer? A year after introducing their Roku competitor, Netgear expands the NeoTV streaming line with “Pro” and “Max” models. And, as we’re wont to do, we picked up Netgear’s latest. Similar in form factor to that aforementioned Roku, I was prepared to dislike the NeoTV MAX ($60-70) given it’s sluggish response and pixelated [...]
