Lost many older recordings on PXL

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 05/21/2012 - 14:08
A few days ago I lost a bunch of recorded shows. I was watching a web video downloaded through a "season pass", after it finished, I was prompted to delete it, which I did. Then the menu backed out to a folder saying there is no more shows in the folder. Then I went back to my now playing list, and noticed my disk usage went down from ~65% to 24%. I looked around, and all shows that were marked with a yellow dot had been deleted, as well as all suggestions. I rebooted it, thinking it might be an indexing glitch, but after reboot, and waiting overnight, the shows remained gone.

I don't know if this was triggered by me deleting the web video. I watched another web video earlier. It had a few more episodes stored in a folder. When I was prompted to delete one episode after finished watching, I was backed out to the folder view, also saying there was no other episodes in the folder, while in fact the folder shouldn't have been empty. This raised my suspicion of indexing issue.

Not sure what I can do. This kinda sucks. I had whole season of a couple shows that I hadn't gotten around to watch, now they are all gone

PS, have not gotten, still on the previous SW

GlaxyTab 2 7 & Tivo Android App My 2 cents

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 05/21/2012 - 13:18
Hello All,

Well I bought a Samsung Glaxy Tab 2 7.0 and thought I would comment about it and TiVo's android app. I am not a smart phone person (my only cell phone is a pay as you go tracfone) and have only used 1 other tablet a 7' blackberry.

I went for the Tab 2 over other low cost 7" tablet like the Kindle fire or Nook tablet because it had more features and because I am not tied to Amazon or Barnes & Noble. The Tab 2 is lighter and faster than the blackberry and seems like a nice device that I believe most people would like, however I am generally disappointed and likely will just concede that I pretty much waisted $240 on a toy I likely will not use much.

TiVo's Android app works well on the Tab 2 it found my TiVos and worked well as long as I had a solid WiFi connection. I really don't see the use of the app as it is much easier to pick up either my Logitech or TiVo remotes. I had hoped the Tab 2 could be setup and used like my Logitech remote unfortunately the Samsung remote app for the IR Blaster isn't advanced enough to be used with my setup and Logitech doesn't make an app at all.

I have very limited uses for a tablet but thought given that this one has an IR Blaster, dual cameras, and runs the latest version of Android that I might find it useful - I was wrong. To sum it up:
  1. TiVo's android app works but is disappointing
  2. The IR Blaster works but the Samsung app is disappointing
  3. Surfing the web on a 7" tablet doesn't work for me.
  4. Hulu+ has an app but says the Tab 2 isn't s supported device.
I might just give this to a nephew who has moved away at least he can use it with Skype to video conference with us.

Does Charter Communications have a Cable Card?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 05/21/2012 - 13:08
OK, so I am probably being lazy here but does anyone know if Charter Communications offers a cable card for the Tivo Premiere box. Right now I am only using it for OTA channels.

The main cable companies that I hear about are Verizon and Comcast, neither offered in my area.

Thanks in advance

Missing: Did it wrap itself up? No Spoilers

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 05/21/2012 - 12:23
I have the 10 episodes of Missing sitting on my Tivo and I'm trying to decide if I should watch it. Without giving anything specific about the show away, can you tell me if the main story line wraps itself up by the end of the season?

I really don't want to waste 7.5 hours watching a show that going to be open ended and is already cancelled. I don't need every single little thread tied up completely but I really don't want to bother if the main plot line remains unresolved by the end of the season/series.


IP set-top box works with the TiVo Premiere Q Only?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 05/21/2012 - 10:00

Maybe this has already been addressed/complained about, is this true that the IP set top box is only going to work with the "Q" model (whatever that is) and not the retail box that we all own?

Replaced HDXL w/ Premiere, can I repurpose the HDXL HDD?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 05/21/2012 - 09:29
If I make a backup of the disk in my new Premiere can I then restore that to the HDD in my HD XL and use it in my Premiere? I haven't opened the Premiere up yet but I just wanted to ensure all the drive specs were the same before doing anything.

Mad Men S05E10 "Christmas Waltz" 5/20/2012

How long until the embezzlement blows up in Lane's face? Will they resolve it this year or will it be next? Will it take his marriage down with him?

Great to see Don and Joan have a little time together, I don't think we have ever really gotten them interacting before. Love that Joan really knows the level of charm Don has and that Don really has no idea how charming he is. Loved the line, "I guess you can tell them I struck out." "No one will believe that".

Joan, who would want a single mother with an infant? Roger.

Was Peggy in this episode at all?

Networking: Watch recordings from one box, on another?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 05/21/2012 - 07:48
I'm wondering if it's possible to watch recordings from one Tivo Premiere (Life) on another Tivo (not subscribed to any service) over a hard wired LAN?

WITHOUT copying/transferring the files = direct playback from the main one to the other.

I've played with some other network connections and had some success, so I think it's likely possible - but just checking.

Our current, 2nd Tivo lives only as a cable box (w/cablecard) - it would be nice to add hassle free playback to it if this is possible (and the cabling is run to implement it).

Discovery bar frustrating- Ideas for how to navigate it better ?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 05/21/2012 - 07:32
The discovery bar is very frustrating. If I am looking at my list of shows and I see an interesting item in the discovery bar, I have to use the up arrow to get there. That can be be very inefficient if I am at the bottom of my show list. Another thing that frequently happens is that I am the top of some list, hit the up arrow, and it wont let me go up (and you get the BONK failure sound), and then a second or two later it will let me go up, but only after it has changed to a new set of suggestions.

The most frustration is when the combination of the two occur, and I finally up arrow all the way up to the top of my show list, and then it wont let me get to the docovery bar untill it has updated it with new items.

Does anyone have any tips for how to better use the discovery bar ?

Tivo & Pace Team Up on 6-tuner Gateway

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 05/21/2012 - 00:26

Boston — TiVo and Pace are providing details of their first jointly developed product, the Pace XG1, a six-tuner hybrid QAM/IP video gateway featuring TiVo's user interface to be available to operators in the Americas later this year.

The companies announced their partnership in February 2012 to develop set-tops and gateways. TiVo and Pace expect to follow the XG1 with additional solutions for domestic and international operators.

The Pace XG1 includes six tuners, an integrated DOCSIS 3.0 modem, and at least 500 Gigabytes of on-board storage. It will use TiVo's whole-home capabilities, such as multiroom streaming and support for both traditional set-top boxes and the potential for IP client devices, as well as support for TiVo's mobile and tablet applications.

The gateway runs on Broadcom's BCM7425 dual high-definition, dual-transcoding hybrid gateway set-top box system-on-a-chip that offers 3000 DMIPS (Dhrystone million instructions per second) of processing power. The Pace XG1 will support Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA) 2.0 and includes Broadcom's BCM3383 DOCSIS 3.0 8-by-4 chip for up to 320 Mbps down and 120 Mbps upstream.

"This partnership will make the TiVo experience easily accessible to more cable operators than ever before," David Sandford, vice president and general manager of TiVo's service provider business, said in a statement. "It will provide operators a best-in-class advanced television solution that they can quickly and cost-effectively deploy and will serve as the gateway to a rapidly expanding choice of content across multiple screens through TiVo's whole-home solutions."

Tim O'Loughlin, president of Pace Americas, added, "There is no denying that the current climate for operators is immensely competitive, and we have been hearing more and more frequently from this community that TiVo is a user experience that they want to offer."

U.S. operators currently deploying TiVo offerings to their customers include Charter Communications, DirecTV, Suddenlink Communications, RCN and Grande Communications, and European operators include the U.K.'s Virgin Media and Spain's ONO.

Game of Thrones - "The Prince of Winterfell" - S02E08 5/20/12

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 05/20/2012 - 21:11
As usual, so much happened this episode, I know I've already forgotten some of it! Why does the hour go so damn fast??

Robb.... saw that coming a mile away. I knew they'd get it on. But Cat letting Jaimie go was STUPID. WTF was she thinking?? How did she think Robb would be okay with that? Ugh.

Tyrion's face when he saw Ros instead of Shae was masterclass acting. God I love Dinklage so much I can't even take it. So I assume Ros realized she was some kind of replacement for who Cersei was really after. That's some dedication right there for her to keep her trap shut. I don't fully understand why she would do that for him. And I guess he and Varys have reached some kind of friendship? I wanted to wipe that smile off Cercei's face. Great acting on Tyrion's part to her to sell the fact that Ros was his "whore".

Oh Jon Snow... I'm really fearful for him at this point. I don't know what else to say. I hope they don't go the route of the wildling chick falling for him.

Arya and Gendry get out of Harrenhal! Dude is really creepy though. I cannot ever remember his name without looking it up.. it's too odd. You know who I mean. His way of speaking is odd even for this show/time. He was freaked when she named him though, liked that. Wasn't surprised though, she's a smart smart girl.

So Stannis names Davos as his hand. I kinda thought that was a given. Apparently not to Davos. Is there anyone more loyal to Stannis than him??

Lastly, Dany Dany. She's a bit full of herself. I hope she isn't leading Jorah to his death here. I will be rightly pissed if he dies because she's so convinced of her own uber specialness and demands they go to the house of the undead.

Is it next Sunday yet?? Only 2 episodes remain this season. That is so depressing!!!!
