Cablevision Tivo HD most channels black

Tivo HD with 1gig HD/Only get basic service on both tuners
Cablevision IO Silver Package
SA Cable Card Multistream Card/Cisco Tuning Adapter

Some time ago I got 2 cable cards from Cablevision one for my Premiere and the other for a Tivo HD that I got from a friend at work. He gave to me dead to repair. The drive went bad and he got a new one. Since I worked in IT new drives are always on the shelf. So I purchased the proper Instant Cake for the Tivo HD and everything was great.

After a few exchanged Cable Cards and several chats with CV I gave up for the time being getting them to work properly. I have 2 Pioneer Tivo with SA 4200 so recording my pay channels wasnt an issue. The two HD units handled all of the basic shows. I also have a SA 4250HD for the occasions that the Tivos are busy and I want to watch HD.

Things got busy and I forgot about it.

Recently the Premiere got an update and it starting working properly. I checked the HD and it was still the same. Basic Channels are fine. Channels like HBO,HGTV,Velocity are a black screen with no errors.

So I called CV and spoke with someone in the Cable Card group and asked them if the could send a signal to update the card. They did and nothing changed. They have suggested a truck roll. I told them that I would have to schedule it at a later date.

Any thoughts or suggestions would greatly be appreciated.

Seeing Jesus' head reminded me that his body disappeared from Lafayette's house.

Who is going to raise baby wolf now that both her parents are dead? Perhaps Alcide and Sookie.

I don't care at all about the Sanguinistas Vs. The Authority. I do, however, enjoy the Tara storyline.

ir blaster drops final digit

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 07/09/2012 - 12:45
I recently resurrected my Sony svr-2000 and connected it with the help of Tivo telephone support. I'm sure that the ir code is the correct one. Nevertheless, the Comcast set-top box occasionally will fail to read the final digit that the dvr transmits. (I didn't think that the Discovery channel would have a show hosted by buxom ladies in heavy make-up agitatedly speaking Spanish.) To counter this, I taped BOTH ir blaster heads together (to double the effectiveness?) This seems to have worked but I was wondering if anyone knew where the receptor for ir beams is on the front of Comcast/Cisco/Scientific Atlanta set-top boxes. I can't find it by shining a flashlight at the front panel and looking for the reflection. Also, can anyone give me a suggestion on how far forward of the edge of the top of the set-top box the ir blaster transmitter should be positioned for greatest effectiveness? Finally, is there an add-on that can be purchased to boost ir blaster potency?


Oh, one last question which I hesitate to ask for its revelation of my stupidity. Can the Sony SVR-2000 be configured (with a Comcast set-top cable box [NOT a DTA]) to record one show while one is watching another? How?

Humax Tivo 2 Network issues

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 07/09/2012 - 11:52
I have an old Tivo 2 Humax which I keep running because it is easy to burn DVD's for relatives with no cable.

All of a sudden my Humax will not connect to the Tivo service. It sees my network (wireless) and shows a connection. It has a valid IP address. But when I try to connect to the Tico service, the regular error is no DHCP.

My router hasnt changed and my other Tivo HD connects fine.

I have rebooted the router (multiple times), rebouted the Tivo (multiple times). run the set up for the network connector and everything else on the Tivo site.

I am at a loss.

Why no DHCP when the router is set for DHCP?

Could my hardware be failing?

What makes it worse is that this is my machine with Lifetime!


Season Pass Management

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 07/09/2012 - 11:24
I've been struggling with setting Season Pass episodes where a given first run show is repeated multiple times.

I have traditionally selected the station and time I want the Season Pass to capture and tell it First Run only.

What happens these days is TiVo grabs the first showing time from the respective channel and not the time I set up. This results in many of our Season Pass programs butting heads in common time frames.

How do you force TiVo to record the actual time frame you specify? I swear this didn't used to be an issue but that may have been pre-Premiere.

Comcast CableCard activation is so frustrating!

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 07/09/2012 - 11:12
Getting my Tivo boxes activated through Comcast has been the most
frustrating thing I have ever done. *I bought two Premiere boxes, one was
an XL4 and the other was a base model.

After calling the Comcast activation number 5 times, they said they could
do no more and had to send a tech out. This was also after a three way call
between Tivo, myself and Comcast, the Xl4 box would not activate. *Comcast
kept saying they did all they could do and they sent the correct signal and
the card was activated. *They swear they are doing everything correctly,
but the Con was showing as "Yes", which I know is correct, but the Val was
remaining at "?", which I know is incorrect.

So, I had no choice but to wait three days for the tech to come out, which
he did on last Thursday. *I explained what the problem was and he said to
me "I am not going to do anything different than than you have tried over
the phone". *I agreed with him on this, but he picked up his handheld
device and talked to someone who I could tell by the way she was talking
knew more about this than the 5 other people I talked to in the days prior.
It seems like he was able to talk to an Advanced Support person or
something like that. *Within a few minutes, whatever signal or activation
she sent, she had the Cablecard working within minutes. *We went through
the menus and the On Demand feature was working as expected.

I did let him know I had another box that I would be setting up later that
night and he left. *Of course, I set up the other box and I get the same
exact issue that I got on my first box when I call to activate the
Cablecard. *I call Comcast and explain to them that the same thing is
occurring and they kept telling me they are doing it correctly, which
obviously they are not because the tech was able to talk to someone who
knew what the issue was and had the Cablecard working in minutes. *I keep
telling them they are missing a step and they keep telling me they are not
missing a step and it is just the most frustrating thing to deal with. *I
can tell that the CSD reps I am speaking with really are not sure how to
troubleshoot at all and just are reading from scripts and templates. *So

I ask this last CSD rep to connect me to the support rep that the Tech
talked to and of course he cannot connect me to her. *Wht can they not
connect me to the rep who knows how to solve my problem? *Of course, they
say there is nothing else they can do for me, so they have to send a tech
out again, which will be this Thursday.

Why does comcast not have their act together? *Why can one person know how
to activate my Cablecard, but numerous other reps have no idea? *Why is it
that only the rep the tech talked to know how to do this? *Why not train
all the reps to handle this situation?

I am going to see how the tech does on Thursday, but I do need to write a
complaint letter to Comcast so they iron this process out for future

Philadelphia's Action News has a substitution anchor and general reporter named Alicia Vitarelli who is ridiculously hot. She's built like the proverbial brick crap house and wears ridiculously tight dresses every newscast. I think my head would explode if they ever show her walking away from the camera. She gets five "Dayums!" from me and my buddies. I googled but don't see any pictures on the internet that do her justice.

The Newsroom S01E03 "The 112th Congress" 7/8/2012

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 07/09/2012 - 08:54
OK first episode felt like "this is who Will is and what Will has done" second was like "This is how the newsroom is and how we do news" now the third feels like "This is how the show is going to be from now on".

Although they are saying they are fair and balanced and presenting news and facts seems like they are trying to be political just by going after the Tea Party. That could all change though once they hit Occupy Wall Street territory.

Shocking Current in THD

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 07/09/2012 - 08:23
Yesterday I was moving my TiVo around and grabbed the case from the front, wrapping my fingers underneath on the right hand side and discovered that there is an active current running through the thing. In the past I had associated the current and subsequent shock to power running in the cable line itself, but when I touched the cable connectors I didn't feel anything. Several times I touched the TiVo while sliding it around to remove the HDMI cable and each time I touched a spot on the chassis that delivered the shock.

What gives? is this current coming in from the cable line, or do I have defective TiVo? It's done this from day one since I first discovered the shock when setting up cable cards and a tuning adapter a few years ago. This THD is unmodded so I know it doesn't have any loose parts I left laying around in it that might be causing it. Ideas? What are my options with TiVo? It's way out of warranty.

Watched the first ep of Sat's double-header. I think network tv must be stifling Price, who wrote the ep. His movies are usually harsh, with an edge. This show is just flat, boring.

Anyway, it's been cancelled. No big loss. I'd like to see Price do a series for HBO, or even AMC or FX. He wrote some of the eps for The Wire, so he's definitely got the stuff.

Cheap Bills Team Jerseys On billsjerseyscheap.com

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 07/09/2012 - 04:24
Every summer leading up to training camp Buffalobills.com asks 25 of the most pressing questions facing the team as they make their final preparations for the upcoming regular season. With Year 3 under head coach Chan Gailey and Training Camp at St. John Fisher Terrell Owens Jersey fast approaching, here is the latest daily installment as we closely examine some of the answers the Buffalo Bills have to come up with between July 24th and Sept. 9th.
Buffalo’s playoff drought is lengthy. In fact it’s the longest current streak in the NFL at 12 years. The litany of reasons for the club’s inability to reach the postseason has been covered with one exception. Lost in all the coaching turnover, draft pick misses and revolving door situation at quarterback through most of the past dozen years has been how the team has fared in their own division.
Winning a division title is the ultimate key to the postseason. If an NFL club Marshawn Lynch Jersey can win its division it removes any worry about tiebreakers and scoreboard watching the last couple of weeks of the regular season. A division title automatically punches a team’s ticket to the postseason. Unfortunately for the Bills, Dolphins and Jets the New England Patriots have turned winning division titles into an art form.
Over the last 11 seasons New England has taken the AFC East crown nine times, including eight of the last nine. Their division record over the past nine years is 43-11. Buffalo’s division record over that same span is 18-36.
The Bills last playoff berth in 1999 was thanks in large part to their 6-2 division record when Indianapolis was still in the AFC East. It represented more than half their win total (11) and was crucial in earning them an AFC Wild Card spot with the Colts taking the division with a 13-3 record.
Since the ’99 season, Buffalo has posted just one winning division record. That came in 2007 when the Bills posted a 4-2 division mark, but finished 7-9 overall. The low water mark came the following year when the team did not post a single division victory going 0-6.
Despite all that has gone right in building the team back into a contender under GM Buddy Nix and head coach Chan Gailey, Jim Kelly Jersey the team’s performance within the division has yet to materialize. Everyone remembers Buffalo’s big Week 3 victory over New England last season, but it was their only division win in 2011 as they went 0-5 the rest of the way in the AFC East. It was a carbon copy of their division record in 2010 (1-5) with their only AFC East victory coming against Miami.
“You can’t win the division unless you’ve got a winning division record,” said Gailey flatly. “And the goal is to win the division.”
Gailey has said more than once that division games “count double” to emphasize the magnitude of those matchups. Despite New England’s run of success in the AFC East, Gailey truly believes each new season presents a genuine opportunity to enact change in the division hierarchy.
“It’s a new year every year,” Gailey told Buffalobills.com. “The Jets have a new offensive coordinator. Miami has a new staff. I don’t think New England turned over that much, but they lost their quarterbacks coach, who had a big impact on their play calling Donte Whitner Jersey. They may change a little bit as well. So while we use history as a learning tool, we don’t let it dictate anything that’s going to happen this year.”
With Miami trying to rebuild under new head coach Joe Philbin and the Jets looking to re-tool their offense and add youth to an aging defense, the timing might be right for Buffalo to post just their second winning division record in this century.
Armed with what looks like the best pass rushing front four in the division and widespread continuity on the offensive side of the ball, Buffalo doesn’t seem to care that New England has made division crowns a habit. And that attitude starts with the team’s personnel boss.
“I’ll be honest with you I think we can be as good as we want to be,” said Nix. “We’ve got good players, good coaches that work hard. I hear a lot of times, Andre Reed Jersey‘Well maybe we can be second and we can make a Wild Card.’ I don’t concede any of that and I don’t concede anything to New England. I think we can win and our goal needs to be to win the division. Then you don’t have to worry about whether you’re going to be in (the playoffs) or not.”

thumb rating behavior

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 07/08/2012 - 22:46
with my old S3 TiVo, whenever I scheduled a recording, that program would automatically get a thumb up rating. Since I never used TiVo auto record suggestions, I would instead look for the thumb up rating on shows to let me know if I've seen it before incase I forget when scheduling new recordings. With S4 TiVo no longer auto thumbing recordings that means I won't be able to easily use my s4 this same way. What S4 does do that's very nice that kind of makes up for this is it gives original air date of every program which is most missed feature of S3 I think. Now that I won't be able to use the thumb system like I did in the past I'm wondering if I'll find a new use for it. Mostly ifs used for turning on auto record suggestions preference right? Do many here like using this for that?

Benefits of buying from TiVo?

The other day Bought a refurb Premiere from another website only to notice a few hours later that TiVo has a deal on refurb Premiere units. The TiVo deal includes a wireless-g adapter and free trial of hulu. Neither of that is important to me. I will get a wireless-n adapter for the TiVo. This leads me to wonder if there is any other benefit from purchasing directly from TiVo? Do you get a deal on subscription?


Not cool AMC & Tivo!

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 07/08/2012 - 17:18
So I was super excited when browsing the guide to see a little "new" icon next to tonight's (7/8) episode of Walking Dead!

Then digging deeper, that episode description sounded damn familiar. What gives?

After digging deeper still, it appears AMC is showing Season 1 Episode 1 again tonight in BLACK & WHITE and somehow that ends up getting flagged as a NEW episode first aired 7/8/12.

Boo for getting me hopes up like that!
