Is my expander going south? by MR[_2_]
For the past couple of nights, my 500gb expander drive started making a high pitched buzzing sound, very softly, but I could hear it from across the room. At the same time, the picture (pre-recorded) was freezing up and skipping. Pressing the fast forward, skip or pause would get it back ...

TiVo Premiere by midnight man
So TiVo Premiere is about to be released. Well, if TiVo Premiere does not support 3D (does it??), it's already obsolete because people would have to use DVR from the cable company instead

So my 3-years of Series 2 DT service is running out in a few weeks by Steve Maser
My scenario: I don't have an HDTV (we have one TV in the house and no plans for a 2nd one.) I bought one of the last "tube" televisions about 3.5 years ago and expect it to last quite some time. (Of course, now that I say this...) And, apparently, my cable company (Comcast) is *not* moving...

TiVo Networking questions by Seth
Thinking of dumping DirecTV as my HR10-250 just died and I really don't like the HR2x in-house DVRs and going back to cable. Not that this will make a difference in my decision to switch, was just wondering... Does the TiVo Desktop Plus software ($24.95 instead of free) support folders in...

Fragmentation by riserman
I've been wondering if Tivo hard drives get fragmented after many years of use. If they do, do they defrag automatically or can it be done manually? How do you defrag a Tivo? Thanks

I just switched from DishNetwork To DirecTV. My TiVo worked fine with DishNetwork. I assumed (yes, I know) that it would work fine with DTV. So far it doesn't. I have the TiVo hooked up to a standard DirecTV receiver (i.e. not a DVR). I have run the TiVo set up with the DTV receiver, but the...
