Series 2 to HD

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 07/29/2012 - 13:22
I've been a Tivo user since 2000. I have had my latest series 2 for five years. I want to get a HD version of the box. They now tell me I had a product lifetime warrenty on it and I must get a new lifetime warrenty for almost $400. I've had three boxes in my Tivo lifetime and never had a problem upgrading and no one ever mentioned a product lifetime subscription. I was under the impression that I brought a lifetime subscription in 2000.

Two questions: Is product support right that I have to get a new lifetime subscription? Is there any way to upgarde the series 2 to HD since it works fine?

I know they need to make money, but it stinks.

Oh well....

thanks

MRV transfer issues

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 07/29/2012 - 13:15
Having issues with MRV between (2) Premiers. When transferring a show, transfer time is roughly 2 hours for a 30 minute show (in HD). When using the "play now" feature the audio and video stutter every 2 seconds. I have never been able to use this feature effectively, any help would be appreciated.

TiVo Olympic Coverage — Top Moments — July 28, 2012

TiVo Blog - Sun, 07/29/2012 - 07:08
Lochte 1 – Phelps 0. The biggest rivalry in the pool becomes the top watched moment on the first full day of games at the XXX London Olympiad.  The swimming showdown was followed closely by Team USA’s Gymnastic performance.  From Jonathan Horton’s dismount during the middle of his routine to John Orozco’s final landing on the Pommel Horse event, Men’s Gymnastics was a highlight of the evening.   Closing out the top moments was Phelps’s interview about his loss that resulted in his first non-medal finish in the past three games Continue Reading

resume playing; not

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 07/29/2012 - 04:35
I just read a response to a question about "Resume Playing" that said the problem had been fixed, but it's still a problem on my TiVo. Half the time my programs start from the beginning, instead of Resuming from where I stopped watching them.

Is there a special way to exit a running program to prevent it from starting from the beginning when you back to it?

pyTiVo - Aspect ratio wrong on display

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 07/28/2012 - 23:07
Having a bit of an issue with pyTiVo and aspect ratios on my Premieres.

I have 16:9 files and everything transfers fine, but I need to put the TiVo into ZOOM (stretch horizontally and vertically) in order to view it properly. FULL is stretched horizontally and PANEL is the correct aspect, just with black bars all the way around.

I swear this used to work perfect on my TiVo HDs before I upgraded. I'm also not sure if moving pyTiVo to a new server has made a difference. I am using the same config file I did before.

Here is my current config:
[_tivo_SD]
height = 720
width = 1280

[handlers]
keys = console,rotfile

[Admin]
type = admin

[BIMOTA]
force_alpha = True
type = video
path = d:\movies

[Server]
port = 9032
temp = C:\Users\Public\Documents\pyTivo
ffmpeg = C:\Program Files\pyTivo\bin\ffmpeg.exe

[_tivo_HD]
height = 720
width = 1280

[formatters]
keys = basicform

I have tried with "aspect169 = true" with the same result.

Premiere and Tuner Conflicts? (OTA)

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 07/28/2012 - 22:14
I am brand new to the TIVO community. I just bought a Premiere (Series 4) for OTA broadcasts only. I've been having some issues with recording shows, though.

For example, when watching the Olympics I will often get an alert saying that I have to change the channel in order to record a single show on another station. However, I know the TIVO can record 2 shows at the same time because it's been recording Suggestions in the background during the Olympics all night long.

Why is the Tivo telling me I have to to change the channel to the channel that's going to record when the Tivo will record Suggestions all night long without a hitch or asking me to change the channel?

Thanks!

weird web interface busted icons

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 07/28/2012 - 17:17
Idle curiosity really:

I've just been switching from firefox to google-chrome on linux, and when I access the https web connection on my TiVo premiere to use the browser to look at what is recorded on the TiVo, the column that, under firefox, has channel names for which channel recorded the program, under chrome, it just has a broken image icon. Apparently the web page provided by the TiVo is referencing an image URL such as:

Code: http://tivo-7460001902dac0b.my.lan/ChannelLogo/logo-66395.png and that gives a 404 not found error.

Under firefox, the URL

Code: http://tivo-7460001902dac0b.my.lan/ChannelLogo/logo-66395.png works fine. Anyone have a clue what the difference is here between FF and chrome?

Should I permanently delete shows in recently deleted file (S2 DT's), or just let it get filled?

Desktop Software + tech assistance required

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 07/28/2012 - 14:21
I used desktop plus for sometime on Tivo HD Model TCD652160 without problems. Then little by little it did not perform properly. Finally it no longer worked. After many months and hours and hours on phone with Tivo support, TIVO replaced my device with a Model Premeire TCD 746320. After setup and re installing desktop plus, there was no change.

It has been almost a year since this was reported and Tivo's most recent response was "try a non-supported tivo alternative software.!

I primarily use the software for transferring video files and photos FROM my computer TO tivo device. When one gos to My Shows or Videos and Photos, one should see a line showing 'xyz' 's PC or 'xyz' PC Photos or Music. (or similar. I get nothing. It does not display my PC on the net work. We have tested the network and it is fine. There are no other problems with my computer (windows 7 Office, AMD 64.

Frankly I previously attempted to install pyTivo but was not successful. I recently tried again and had the same result. I did install the Pyrhon software, but am lost with how to install the pyTivo. I've tried manually, self-installeres, etc etc. There just seems to be so much technical out there I find it confusing.

Any suggestions, help,comments welcomed.

Toshiba RS-TX20 DVD-R/DVD-RW Life Time Plus

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 07/28/2012 - 04:58
Like the title states, its a RS-TX20 with lifetime plus membership. Haven't used it in over a year but last time used everything worked great, even the dvd burner. Comes with 2 remotes, the original one and a new one I purchased called TiVo Glo Premium remote.
Unit is heavy so shipping will be a about $20. Also have purchased the software package called TiVo Desktop Plus which I will include (serial number only, you can download the software and input the serial number to activate it).
I know its old but it works greats and someone might be interested in it.
Open to offers but please take into consideration the shipping cost.
Can take pictures if you like of unit and remotes.

New tivo will not tune channel being broadcast only 1.4 miles away!

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 07/28/2012 - 00:04
I live only 1.4 miles from my local Great Falls, MT tv stations (can see their towers in my backyard!) and pick up KFBB (5-1, real channel 8), KRTV (3-1, real channel 7), and KUGF (21-1, real channel 21) signals just fine using an attic antenna that feeds all the TV's in my house. (80-95% signal strength)

However, I recently purchased a TIVO and for some reason when the signal is fed through it, I only get 10-20% signal strength for channel 5-1 (KFBB), while KRTV and KUGF are about the same as they were before.

I can disconnect the coax from the TIVO, hook it directly to my set, and get good reception with 5-1. I even went as far as running a direct line of coax (with no splitters, etc..) to the peak of my roof to a set of rabbit ears. No orientation gave better than 30% signal strength when hooked to the TIVO.

Can't post my info from TV Fool because the forum won't let me if I've had less than 5 posts! :down:: Here is the info from their table:
KFBB-DT 8 (5.1) ABC 77.2 -13.7 LOS 1.4 98 deg
KRTV-DT 7 (3.1) CBS 72.2 -18.6 LOS 1.4 98 deg
KUGF 21 (21.1) PBS 66.9 -24.0 LOS 1.4 98 deg

Called customer support and was very disappointed. They were more interested in assuring me that they could not guarantee ota reception and that from the description of the problem that they were sure that the TIVO is not faulty.

It seems that there has to be a logical explanation somewhere for this. If the TIVO is not faulty, is there anything else that could explain?

Note: KFBB and KRTV are at exactly the same azimuth and distance, and have very similar frequencies. I am using a directional antenna in my attic, and one comes in at 90% while the other is at 10-15% with the TIVO, while both come in around 90% without the TIVO. :confused:

Any thoughts here would be greatly appreciated. I still have about a half of a month of my 30-day guarantee left and if I don't resolve this issue I'm afraid that I'm going to have to return this TIVO box that I otherwise love!
