So it is possible that someone can be a more pompous ass than Piers.

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

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!

OT: Harry Potter question **SPOILERS**

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 05/14/2012 - 10:56

Well, its not totally Off Topic as all of the movies have been on TV ending with Deathly Hollows Part 2 just now on a premium channel.

I'm not into reading the books but saw all the movies and I have one very basic question. I know that Voldemort is the epitome of evil but why in the very beginning was he trying to kill Harry, who was just a baby at the time? His folks were killed as they protected Harry, but was Voldemort after them too and if so why? So the question is why was Voldemort seeking to kill the Potter family?


HDUI sound issue?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 05/14/2012 - 10:46
On my recently purchased Premiere every time I bring up the HD guide or menu the sound cuts out for about 1/2 sec or so. The same thing happens when I dismiss the guide/menu. This happened in 20.2 and still the same with the spring update.
The Premiere is set to 1080i/p only and I'm using HDMI to the TV and audio out from there to the receiver. I tried different ports & cables but no luck. I haven't tried switching to the SDUI yet to see if it has the same sound issue. It's not a dealbreaker but it's somewhat annoying, and it didn't happen with my old Time Warner HD box.

Has anyone experienced the sound cutting out in the HDUI guide/menu?

Mad Men - "Dark Shadows" - 5/13/12

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 05/14/2012 - 08:23
It's a warm November in Gotham and loyalties are being betrayed right and left in this episode. Betty uses Sally against Don and Megan to betray Don's past to Sally. Don undermines Ginsburg's Sno-Ball campaign. Burt and Roger go behind Don's back by hiring Ginsburg to create a new campaign. Betty struggles not to betray her Weight Watcher's diet (she mostly succeeds). Henry begins to realize his loyalty to Lindsay might be costing him a career.

Lots of thing to digest. Discuss.
