That was long!
Is there a code sequence to disable the program details dialog that briefly appears at the bottom of the screen automatically whenever a video is played or view live TV is entered? It often, e.g., gets in the way of program captions, and I would prefer it to appear only when I manually invoke it.... If possible, I still would want the green timeline to appear, which is small enough not to be objectionable.
I recognize that it would not survive a reboot, and apologies should it already be in this thread somewhere and I overlooked it while poring over the posts here before posting this.
Hello Tivo Forum. This is my second post, (ever) but the same question as the first. I hope I'm not in the wrong place, etc. New to forums in general.
I really need some help as I am thinking about buying a Humax Drt800 with lifetime service. Hi Def. is not an issue so no concern there, unless it's really terrible, like you can't determine what it is your watching.
Sooooooooooo, if you have experience and or knowledge about this product, PLEASE chime in with any hints, opinions, advice, etc. Thanks VERY MUCH!!!
Oh, one issue I've picked up from this forum is that there might be an issue communicating to a Scientific America Explorer 3250 via IR Emitter. Anyone know anything about this?
OK thanks for taking the time to read this....I look forward to hopefully getting lots of replies with tons of Humax Drt800 info.
Humax is ancient hardware, as far as hardware goes.
What's your source? Over the air antenna (OTA)? Cable?
What's the price on the Humax? If it's more than free, it's a bad deal.
The Humax does NOT record in Hi Def. No HD, only old-school NTSC. You'd have to front-end it behind a cable box or over-the-air tuner than handled down-converting to a format it'd be capable of recording. You'd need at least a series 3-based unit to record HD.
Too late being new to forums etc. I couldn't find this until just now......and 5 minutes ago I just bought the thing.....life just aint fair sometimes,,,i guess.
So is the thing useless? I paid $41.50 by the way.
weak knees said it would work with the set top box????
I don't care about recording in hd will it still not work? what does behind a cable box mean.....thanks
Is there anything I can do with it? Thanks in advance.
You use a cable box or an over-the-air tuner as a converter. Plug the cable or antenna into such a box, then plug the video out from that box into the Tivo. Plug the Tivo into the TV. This would allow using the box as a tuner for the channels, but only one channel at a time as there's only one path from the box into the Tivo.
Personally, I'd punt and get a lifetime series 3-based unit instead. The older series 2-based units aren't worth really bothering with anymore.
I used some of these codes like 10 years ago. Are they still valid on the Roamio/Bolt?
I can vouch for the 30-second skip code and the Clock code still working on the Bolt.
I can't seem to get the S-P-S PAUSE S code to work on my Premiere or my Bolt. Has this been disabled in the newer versions? It worked fine on my TiVo HD.
Others have reported recently that they pull up Info while playing a show and then scroll down to the CC option and use the backdoor codes successfully.
