    Thanks, I hadn't thought of that re: YT (obviously :) ).

    I had looked at your price list and I figure $150 would be good for 1TB, problem is I've got at most a month of Comcast service this season...

    Premiere: bad HD or other problem?

    I have a TiVo Premiere (746320) with Lifetime Service, it works well most of the time, but occasionally there's pixellation or a momentary freeze. I assume this is likely a HD starting to fail but...
  3. I was just getting ready to call TiVo (organizing...

    I was just getting ready to call TiVo (organizing account #, etc.) when this email arrived at 2:39pm (EDT):



    Reposting here in case anyone else is in the same boat. It does serve as a handy...
  4. Thanks for the quick suggestion. I have two...

    Thanks for the quick suggestion. I have two "active" TiVos, a S2DT with Lifetime and a Premiere with Lifetime. And a couple of inactive S2DT that didn't have Lifetime.

    I missed the 2017 upgrade...
  5. Strange (scary) email from TiVo re: upgrade offer

    Yesterday (Sep 7/18) about 930pm, I got an email from TiVo, telling me the deactivation of my Premier with Lifetime has been delayed from Sep 7 to Sep 8. I had received the upgrade offer (give up...

    Thanks, that makes sense. Now I'm hoping they do a CBS All-Access app, since that service is more in line with Netflix etc., than DTVNow which is live streaming mostly (I think).

    Though I'm not...
  7. Is there likely to be a DirecTV Now app on TiVo?

    DirecTV Now (which I'll call DTVN) is an attractive package of live streaming and 72hr rewind (on some stations). I'm on a 1-month trial and so far I've been able to watch it on my Windows notebook...

    I had no idea. Your prices aren't much more than a slow boat from China so I'll keep that in mind. Of course (as posted upthread) I never got the Slingbox to work right, but now that my TiVo is...
  9. I finally got the IRB and the Tivo in the same...

    I finally got the IRB and the Tivo in the same place, and discovered the Slingbox IRB (from an original SB100) has a 2.5mm plug, while the TiVo S2DT has a 3.5mm jack! I was all set to buy a new IRB...

    Sorry to keep coming back, but I haven't found the IR blaster yet.

    Are they all the same? I have one that looks just like the picture (even with the purple) and I used it with an ancient SLingbox...

    Thanks, if I can't find the IR blaster that came with the TiVo, I'll come back here to check them out.

    Sorry to follow-up to my own question but I found the S2DT setup poster here http://support.tivo.com/servlet/fileField?id=0BE500000008Sib and it looks to me like I could actually control the Rogers...
  13. Can I use S2DT to record off cable company box?

    Sorry for such a newbie question after all these years, but I have a basic Rogers Scientific Atlanta cable box (so no cablecard option) hooked up to an ancient 24" CRT TV. I've been occasionally...
  14. Thanks, is that an older machine than the...

    Thanks, is that an older machine than the Premiere? I wonder if they rewrote the app to work with Prime and lost the backwards compatibility. If it applies to my Premiere too, I'll be glad I got the...

    Probably shouldn't bury this in an APIV thread, but I also noticed there's now an app for Yahoo! Screen. I'd never even heard of that service until (of course) I saw that Community S6 is a YS...
  16. (I'm getting) Amazon Prime Instant Video on Premiere TCD746320

    There was no announcement I'm aware of (or at least, no email from TiVo, not even a message) and there's nothing different in the menu, but the Amazon app on my TiVo Premiere now supports APIV.

    Thanks. I power cycled everything but also put the TiVo on ethernet. Now it works. Actually it works in TiVo Desktop but not in kmttg (still getting "check your IP and MAK" and both are right). I'd...

    Thanks. "static DHCP" is probably not the right term, though I think some routers use it. You tell the device to get the IP address by DHCP and then you tell the router to assign a specific IP...

    Premiere: Can't be seen on LAN

    I have a Premiere (320GB) that I bought in Jun 2012. I haven't had any trouble accessing it on the network. Now I put it in a new place (with a new router) and it's been hard to find on the LAN.

    ...and if you have a non-lifetime unit, it's possible if you load up the hard drive then cancel the service, you can continue watching what's stored there.

    That's not what I expected, or...

    FWIW, having one of them phone home every 6 months will qualify your next machine for MSD (Multi-System Discount). I've abandoned two of my S2s (non-lifetime) but when the lifetime machine was...

    Should be possible to pull it all down to a PC, then back up to the new TiVo as needed? Or does that not work any more?

    Though last time I tried to download HD recordings from TiVo to PC, a couple...

    Follow-up to the Lifetime unit as the basis for MSD, I found this in the T&C at https://www.tivo.com/legal/terms#msd :

    Cancelled my TiVo service (for one S2DT box) on Friday and I'm reporting two things that were different than I remembered.

    1. Friday was the last day of my billing cycle so I waited until then to...

    My better half thinks that when we deactivated the previous S2DT, we were able to play, stop/pause, and delete existing recordings. So no FF, REW, go back when you forget to pause it, etc. (not sure...
