Question about "Awake" finale - no specific spoilers please

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 05/25/2012 - 10:47
We have about 8 episodes left of this show and trying to decide whether it's worth watching now that it's been cancelled. Can anyone who saw the finale tell me whether - without giving away any specifics - there was any sort of closure? I'm not even sure that I wouldn't watch it if they didn't make things crystal clear, but if it didn't even seem like they knew that it would be the series finale, then we probably won't bother.

Spring update fix the stability issues?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 05/25/2012 - 08:51
A few months ago I bought a premier box that I couldnt get to stay up. It would randomly crash as I navigated the UI, recorded shows, etc. Almost every single day I had it, I would wake up and find it stuck in a reboot loop. Obviously not normal behavior but a little research on these forums and google seemed to be pretty common. I ended up returning it after about 10 days.

I have a S3 HD XL that I love but still have an itch to get the 4 tuners and 2tb. Whats the consensus on the spring update? Has it fixed most problems? At the time my box was crashing, TiVo was promising software fixes to address the problems I was having but I wasnt willing to gamble.

So You Think You Can Dance S9 Audtions Thread

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 05/25/2012 - 08:48
I figured we only need one thread for the auditions

The 29-year-old woman and her kids is why this is one of the best reality competition shows on TV. Things like that cannot be staged.

Some good dancers this year and I think they are really going all out because in the past they have found great dancers in SLC and Dallas before.

Girls S1E6 The Return OAD 5/20/12

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 05/25/2012 - 08:20
Loved the vintage Mac.

I missed seeing the other Girls

I have now seen Peter Scolari's penis!

Hannah can't help returning to Adam who doesn't even know what state she is from.

I don't know if I was supposed to think this, but when Hannah's dad turned the mom around in the shower, I was reminded that the ex-boyfriend said the dad is gay.

This was the first episode co-written by Judd Apatow.

There is a rumor that Community's Donald Glover will have a part on Girls.

Cox Plus channels post-Spring Update

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 05/24/2012 - 23:18
Posted this in the changelog thread but didn't get a response.

Anyone still have issues with the Cox Plus channels in your market after the Spring Update that was supposed to fix the ability to tune up to 1Ghz? I'm in the Pensacola/Gulf Coast market with a TiVo Premiere with an M Card and Tuning Adapter. The TA seems to have them still authorized but I still can't tune to them. I verified they're in the 800/900 range. Shows "Searching for Signal on this Channel when I change to the channel and the diagnostics shows:

Freq: 891000Khz
Modulation: QAM 256
Signal Lock:No
Program Lock: No
Search Complete: Yes
RC State: Available
Current Tuning Status: Tuned-Success
Tune State: In Progress

Seems to be all the Plus pack channels (secondary premiums in HD).

Any advice would be appreciated.

Awake "Turtles All The Way Down" S1E13 5/24/2012

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 05/24/2012 - 23:11
At least they ended it right.... he closed his eyes and we don't know what happened. I won't begin to understand Vega in the penguin costume or the two Michaels at prisoner visitation.

I'm very sad to see this series end. I wonder how much they changed this last episode to make it the series finale instead of the season finale?

Revenge "Reckoning" S1E22 OAD 5/23/2012

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 05/24/2012 - 19:08
WOW! Fantastic episode!!

So much going on. My favorite part was when Emily opened the empty box from Victoria. It was pretty funny to see her get the last laugh.

So is Emily's mother a terrorist?

I didn't see the Amanda thing coming at all. I've grown tired of her and was hoping she wouldn't come back.

Victoria obviously isn't dead. She is far too important to the show and is a fantastic actress. Lydia might not be so lucky....

Are we supposed to believe that the Feds didn't make a copy of the evidence?

"Fringe" reruns are going to begin running on a cable channel

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 05/24/2012 - 18:21
It won't be on SyFy, however. (I'm not the least surprised. Disappointed, but not surprised.)

Try the SCIENCE CHANNEL. You know...the one that got "Firefly" after SyFy apparently decided they didn't want it (or any other old scifi shows)?

I sort of like this. Never got into Fringe, but have wished at different times I had.

Now's my chance to do it freebie style.

Maybe more info here-

Tivo HD recordings to XL4

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 05/24/2012 - 15:09
I have a Tivo HD upgraded with a 1 TB hard drive. After my building shut off power to replace a feed line (and I forgot to switch everything off before that happened), the TiVo has yet to proceed pass the Welcome! Powering Up screen. I plugged back the original 160 GB hard drive in to get the same result, so I suspect that motherboard or power supply is the concern rather than the hard drive.

I've been considering adding or upgrading to a Premiere or XL4 anyway, but if I do, is there any way to access the recordings on the HD hard drive if that TiVo isn't working?

Hughes SD-DVR40 power indicator

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 05/24/2012 - 14:14
I have an old Hughes SD-DVR40, does the power indicator (green light) remain on all the time, also the fan is kind of loud. This box was hacked about 8 years ago. When it boots, acquiring satellite info will not proceed past 65%.

TiVo Premiere and "standard" Hulu

Does anyone know if you can watch "standard" Hulu (not Hulu plus) on a TiVo Premiere without a Hulu Plus subscription?

Thanks in advance.

Premiere upgrade itch...to scratch or not?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 05/24/2012 - 13:56
Been looking at the $49.95 Premiere refurb sale going on right now and have an upgrade itch that I'm considering scratching.

I have an S3 (on lifetime) that I use in my primary viewing area and an HD in my secondary viewing area that gets very rarely used (6.95 monthly--hacked due to Frontier FIOS and their crappy always on copy once flag).

I'm mostly content with both but with the sale running today have thought about upgrading to the Premiere and it's UI (which i like but is deathly slow on the S3/HD--it IS faster on the premiere right?).

So I've thought about buying a Premiere then trying to get lifetime on my HD and selling it. Also thought about just buying an XL4 and selling everything else as my HD is pretty rarely used (but it does get used).

I guess I'm asking advice from those that have been in my position before--did you upgrade and never look back? Any regrets? Thanks in advance for the advice!
