Now the fly in the ointment. Some DVR's won't pick up the last few minutes.

Time Warner Cable - Tuning Adpater Cable card - Showing random channels

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 05/30/2012 - 15:41
I am having a very odd issue. TWC accidentally shut off my cable on friday. I was out of town. It was reactivated on Tuesday. when it was reactivate none of the HD SDV channels were working correctly, and MPEG 2 HD channels which work without the tuning adapter were showing random SD channels when the tuning adapter is hooked up.

TWC ALBANY CHANNEL LINEUP
EX: 1805 (TBS HD) shows Channel 13 (NBC SD). It does this on every channel above 1800. All the normal sd channels work on there correct channel numbers. The tuning adapter is a Cisco, and it shows the it has a solid light. The cable card is installed correctly.

I call time warner they think its the tuning adapter, I go exchange it for a different one, get home, hook it up, STILL the same issue. HD channels showing random SD channels. The weird part is if I take the thing adapter out of the setup these non SDV hd channels work without any issues.

EX: Tivo + ONLY CABLE CARD
1805 TBS HD show TBS HD correctly in MPEG-2

Ex: Tivo + Cable Card + Tuning Adapter = Channels not mapping correctly at all. TBS HD (1805) showing Channel 13 in SD.

So time warner came to my house today and replaced the cable card. Still the same issue. They have no idea whats wrong. They said its the Tivo, We've repeated the guide setup about 8 times, replaced the tuning adapter and cable card, and have rebooted the tiro multiple times.

I feel like we've done everything we can do. Please if anyone can help!

HARDWARE:
Tivo Premiere

FIOS DC Area - 501 No Guide Info

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 05/30/2012 - 13:08
So apparently the Nationals games are being broadcasted on 501 since the O’s are being broadcasted on MASN. But you would not know that as there is no guide information provided for channel 501. Is the lack of guide information a TiVo problem or a FIOS problem?

"Cajun Pawn Stars" - fail?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 05/30/2012 - 12:15
History is running a Pawn Stars marathon, and they just did an ad for the upcoming "Cajun Pawn Stars" spin-off (which I hear Rick was royally ticked about when someone told him the network was doing it).

Looks like a poor man's rip off.

Anyone seen or heard any more details other than the commercial?

(It hasn't run prior to this, has it?)

Transfer Queue Blocked??

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 05/30/2012 - 11:52
I have had 2 TiVo HDs and 1 TiVo S3 operating for several years connected to my home network via Ethernet cables. I regularly transfer programs between units with no problems. Yesterday, I upgraded my wireless router and set up a new network. While doing that, I apparently interrupted a transfer in progress from one of the HDs to the S3.

I then set up all 3 TiVos to work with the new network and successfully connected to the TiVo update site. I can see the other 2 machines on my Now Playing list, but when I try to transfer a program it tells me that it will be added to the list and transferred in turn. But nothing is showing up on the S3.

I suspect that the interrupted transfer is blockading the transfer queue. I tried restart for both machines and when that didn’t work unplugged and repowered-up both machines, but still no transfers. How can I free up my transfer path? To my knowledge, I don’t think there is any way to view – or clear out -- the transfer queue (is there?).

Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated. The wife wants her “Game of Thrones” on the TiVo HD. Help!

Food Network Star - All Season Thread

No thread yet? Well... there is now. :)

What do y'all think of the new format for the show? I'm enjoying it so far because I really like the increased interaction between the "mentors" and the contestants. I'm curious what will happen, though, if one of the celebrities loses all their team?

As far as the contestants... I don't have much of a favorite so far. They all seem kind of bland except for the young kid (Alton Brown Jr.). So I guess I'm rooting for him. :)

If the fat Asian guy says "Hand Crafted" one more time I'm going to pitch a shoe at the TV. :p

Giada's not much of a mentor. And that one woman freaking out because she was staring at her... that was some funny stuff!

So... am I the only one watching?

The Office, "Free Family Portrait Studio," 2012-05-10

No thread for the season finale?

I just watched the last four episodes last night. I like the development with David Wallace owning Dunder Mifflin. I assume that actor is back next year in the CEO role. Hopefully this means back to basics for the show.

At this point I don't remember what episode it was, but did anyone else notice the St. Paulie Girl sign in Ryan's cubicle?

Series 3 & local HD channels

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 05/30/2012 - 08:26
I have Premiere & an older Series 3 (OLED) HD TiVos. I recently got another Premiere that will essentially replace the Series 3 in living room. Since it has a lifetime plan, I plan to then just put the Series 3 in the basement. It will still be hard wired to my home network so I'll have MRV access to shows on it from the two Premiers on the main floor.

However, Since Comcast charges $8 for more cable cards, I don't plan to get cable cards for this older Series 3 and just hooking the coax cable right to it. This basic hookup will essentially just get me local channels only on this Series 3 (I'm in a Comcast area that has done the digital transition). My Sony HDTV can get local HD channels with the direct coaxial connections. They are channels like ch4-1, 5-1, 11-1, etc.

I realize I will have to go through the setup process again, but can my Series 3 get these HD channels as well (with just a simple direct coax connection)? Or will it really just get the analog version of the local channels?

Do you want Amazon Prime Instant Video? Contact Amazon

I wrote to amazon about providing streaming to a tivo and they said they hadn't gotten ANY requests for that before!

So go to this link, choose feedback as the topic and start writing!

https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/conta...e_id=200843320

This is what I said:
I saw on your home page today that you are now supporting Prime Instant videos on xbox360. This is disappointing because I am not a gamer and don't have an xbox 360. I do have a TiVo XL4 and would very much like to view prime instant videos on that device. However, your app for TiVo does not allow for streaming.

When will you support prime instant video streaming on a TiVo?

This is their reply:
I understand you’d like to us to stream instant videos on your Tivo.

I'm sorry, currently you can only download videos on Tivo. I understand this feature would’ve made more efficient and convenient to use Amazon Instant videos.

This is for the first time we’ve ever received a request for a feature like this and we're glad you took time to write to us. I’ve forwarded your suggestion to our Development team, they’ll coordinate with our technology teams and work hard to implement this feature as we plan our future improvements.

Customer feedback like yours helps in our endeavor to improve the service we provide, and we’re very happy you took time to write to us.

Thanks for your interest in Amazon Instant videos.

Does anyone know of a new or current code?

Wiping a hard drive to start with empty drive

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 05/29/2012 - 21:36
I had prepped a brand new hard drive with the 6.2a image but what with the local channel guide issue I would like to start completely over... I would like to completely wipe the drive so it would be empty so I can install a fresh 6.4a image.

Any suggestions on what software I should use?

Problem with delete

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 05/29/2012 - 16:43
Hi,
I've had my Virgin Tivo for a month or so ( I'm an ex series one user since 2000 ) and the only problem I've had is when deleting programs I've just watched.
If I stop watching before the end of the recording but close to it ( say when the adverts appear and there's still some minutes to go ) it goes back to the programs play screen. If I try to delete from there it wont, but if I try to continue watching I get a screen with the "press ok to continue" option. Press ok and the screen goes blank and the tivo is frozen. Only a reboot will fix.:(
This has happened a number of times, and I'm now trying to remember to fast forward till the program end before going back ( which then gives me the delete option screen and all is OK ) but occasionally I forget :( and then it a reboot.
Is this a known problem, with a work around, or am I the only one who has this ?

Richard
