TiVo Transfer not finding my TiVo by Martin Frost me at invalid stanford daht edu
For a couple of years, I have used TiVo Transfer (from Toast 8) to copy programs from my TiVo Series 2 to my Mac. For some months now, though, TiVo Transfer has not detected the TiVo on the network. TiVo Transfer shows no TiVos under "TIVO DVRs". It does show the programs I previously...

Wish List problem by No Name
I have a wish list set up to record the Red Sox in HD. This usually works like a charm, recording NESNHD (851). But at least 10 times this season, TiVo has thought the game was playing on ESPNHD (849), so recorded that station. However there was on game on ESPN. Sometimes the game really is on...

Tivo vs. Netflix by QN[_3_]
I had switched from Roku to Tivo for displaying my streaming Netflix. The picture quality was better. I think the Tivo sends 1080i to the HDTV, whereas the Roku box sends 720P. About a week ago, I started getting strange green lines and pixelization from the Tivo. At first I assumed it was a...

does anybody know how to change channels like 2-1, 4-1, 7-1 directlyfrom the number on the remote by Stan[_2_]
On my digital TV tuner the remote actually has a button so I can go to the over the air digitial channels easily such as 2-1, 4-1, or 7.1. However, on my Tivo remote there is not dash (-) or period (.). So how can I go to 2-1 directly by pressing the numbers on the remote?

How do I change favourites? by blank[_2_]
I can receive 3 different versions of the same channel (one is Sydney, one is Gold Coast, one is Brisbane). Sydney is the default favourite. I want to change it to Brisbane. I have given the thumbs down to the Sydney version, the thumbs up to the Brisbane vesion, so that only the Briwsbane...

upgraded Tivo HD with audio drops by Stan[_2_]
i just upgrade my Tivo HD and change the internal 160 gb hard drive with a Western Digital wd10eads 1 terabyte hard drive. Now I get random audio drops. I think I watched about 6 sitcoms since the upgrade. 2 of the sitcoms had audio drops and the other 4 were perfect with no drops. The sitcom...

Programs that end late by blank[_2_]
Is there any way to set Tivo so that it will just automatically record to the end of a program which starts late? I know it can be done by setting it for each show selected in the season pass, but I'm asking is there an auto setting so that it just knows to do it every time? It seems terribly...

How do you stop Tivo making dozens and dozens of suggestions. Can it be turned off, so it makes none?

Hard drive failure question... by ropeyarn
If this has been hashed out here before, tell me to Google it and I will. This is a small data set, for sure, but it's my data set...and it shows hard drives in my two Tivo boxes failing at a greater rate than hard drives in PC's (or standing alone as external drives). PC hard drives 13 year...

Channel List & Season Pass Backup? by Wayne R.
Is there a way to back up the channel list "favorites" and season passes for use in a potential replacement? You know, like any normal computer can do. In particular, an S3. Likewise, is there a way to backup/copy shows? Not for nefarious purposes but simply to make way for a replacement drive,...

CableCARD Quantity by Wayne R.
Apparently, S3 TiVo's need two cards whether multi-stream or not. Newer models (HD, HD XL) only need two if they're single-stream cards. Remember to tell your cable guys so you don't get stuck like we did, forcing a third Comcast truck roll just for two cards. Also: I'm told the code sent to a...

Magnavox's $100.00 Digital DVD Recorder. Records all analog &digital by Old Movie Fan
Note: I had to return the first unit because it was defective and may need to keep something in the timer program to keep this 2nd one working. Not really user friendly, this Magnavox (it's actually a Funai), really does record the high definition channels and provides a much better playback...

This ebay seller claims his generic External drive is compatible with all HD Tivo's. by Bill Kearney
Not at all. Apple is in a similar position and is pretty much considered the gold standard when it comes to "it just works" and they don't even pull this sort of crap. Au contraire, they have done it. And their egregious behavior on the app store is an even more heinous example.

Lots of startup problems by Tom from WI
So far starting my Series 3 HD Tivo has had lots of problems, Comcasts I think: 1. Called Comcast to get the multi cable card activated. Comcast person only asked for Host Id number, not Data ID number. Looked like it worked until I found lots of channels missing 2. Comcast said whoever was...

Ever heard of this Comcast ripoff? by Real Person
My sister lives in Boynton Beach, FL. She recently bought a new Tivo HD with lifetime service. She called to get a cablecard and was told the charges, henceforth, would be: $6 for "service", $6.50 for HD, $1.50 for the card--all per month! I can't believe they can get away with this. Anyone have...

Is it feasible to use Tivo wirelessly? by brettr
Not to clog up this post http://groups.google.com/group/alt.video.ptv.tivo/browse_thread/thread/688be3d99e61d319#, I'd like to transmit recorded shows across the room to my computer/ monitor. This device seems as though it will let me completely stream video and administer the Tivo from a...

Love by QN[_3_]
I love my TIVO HD with 1TB external drive. Things are not turning out quite as I expected. The Tivo is collecting my favorite shows much faster than I'm willing to put in the hours needed to watch them. Hmmm. I have had it for about 2 months, now.
