Question on Tivo HD models by Tony D
Are the Tivo HD and HD XL identical except for drive size? I've seen conflicting info on maximum drive capacity. I read max drive capacity was 1.1G plus the standard drive size, in other words Tivo HD 1.26 and the XL 2.2G. This seemed to indicate that if the HD had a 1G internal put in you...

Is my Tivo S2 ready for digital? by dgates
I hadn't thought about this. I've been ignoring all the "You need a converter" talk, figuring I was safe in all the rooms that have TVs (since each has a cable DVR or a cable card in a Tivo). Then I remembered that our weight room has a Tivo Series 2 with the white coaxial cable running straight...

Re-upgrade a Series 2 by Greg Evans
I've been enjoying my Series 2 (540) TiVo that I upgraded to a 320G HD for several years now, but I think it's time to upgrade again (the HD is starting to get a bit noisy, plus I'd like more space). So, what problems (if any) can I expect, replacing 320G HD with a 1 or 1.5TB? Will a drive that...

Using BOTH wireless and wired network connection by Character
My S2DT Tivo has a relatively slow wireless connection. It's adequate for the daily call and for transferring recordings between Tivo's, but is too painful for downloading to a PC. Does anyone know of or think there might be problems temporarily using an ethernet cable to connect it to the...

does HD Tivo show sub channels on over the air TV by [email protected]
Does HD Tivo receive the subchannels on over the air TV? An example is NBC in Los Angeles (over the air digital TV) is channel 4.1. Then there are the subchannels of NBC such as 4.2 (raw news) and 4.4 (universal sport). I want to know does the TIVO HD actually have a directory for these sub...

S3 Drive Replacement - Internal & External, what's busted? by Wayne R.
Okay, I've done the basics, temp's good, redid the setup (as recommended by Weaknees), fan's clear, everything seems good except it just rebooted again. Disk time... I've been out of town, so the thing's loaded - as well as an external drive too. What's the best approach to replacing the...

Paritally failed test: VHS to TiVo to computer by dgates
My DVD recorder died last week, just as I was about to finally transfer about 20 hours of stuff from old VHS tapes to DVD. I knew that once I was done with these transfers, there would be no reason I'd ever need a DVD recorder again, so I decided to try an alternate way of transferring the VHS...

Rebooting S3 by Wayne R.
My S3 box is having periods of frequent reboots. Just this evening it rebooted three times during playback (& recording a single show too). The second time tonight, I pulled the power and let it sit a bit, but 20 minutes later, bang. This has happened similarly twice before in the last two...

Series3 missed shows without warning in the last week by Ted Zlatanov
My S3 missed a bunch of shows in the last 7 days (e.g. Fringe). I don't think it's full, but there was no warning or other reason given. I'm on Comcast in IL (dual CableCards), if it matters. Any ideas why this happened? The guide data is not out of date. Ted

Fringe by jonan
Does anyone record Fringe and use Tivo Desktop? I have all but one episode to burn on DVDs. The episode I'm missing is #109 - The Dreamscape. I'll pay for shipping if necessary. Is there some other newsgroup where I can get it? Any help would be appreciated. Thank You.
