Tivo Roamio Skip Feature

Just noticed that new little green button on my Tivo Roamio menus and while watching shows. After finally paying attention to it, I learned that’s the new SkipMode of the Tivo software. On recorded shows, when the commercials begin, if you see the Skip button on screen, you push the green “D” button on the […]

Holiday Gift Guide 2014: Tivo Mega

Sorry, but I’m starting off Pulpconnection’s Holiday Gift Guide, 2014 edition with a product unavailable until 2015. This would be the strange Tivo Mega. Why strange? Who would use this beast? The Mega has 24 TB of RAID5 storage and fits inside of a rack. That 24 TB of storage equates to 4000 hours of […]

Tivo Roamio Upgraded

With my Tivo HD unit (circa 2008) showing the “black screen of death” more and more often, it was time to act and get a new Roamio. While the name is a little peculiar, this device is no joke. The strength of the Roamio is the remote viewing of recorded content included on the Plus […]

Tivo Has No Free Shipping to Hawaii

Tivo Has No Free Shipping to Hawaii

Aww, that’s a real bummer. Tivo has a promotion to upgrade existing customers to their new Roamio platform. Sadly, their free shipping offer isn’t valid for Hawaii. The estimated shipping is $38 which is significant. Amazon sells the Roamios as well so with Amazon’s discount and truly free shipping, Tivo’s promotion is essentially negated. And […]

Time for a Tivo Flight Check

Gotta do a flight check on my Tivo with a bunch of shows taking off this week. Let’s see, the conclusion of Season 1 of The Gates should have recorded on Sunday. It ain’t a bad show, kinda a poor man’s Underworld but in a modern context where you’re the unusual one if you’re not […]

SDV Tuning Adapter Installed!

Bright and early this morning, an installer from Oceanic Time Warner showed up for the installation of my SDV tuning adapter. The overall install took a long time since the thorough tech checked signal strength throughout the household. Once that was done, the installation of the SDV tuning adapter was quick. The boot up of […]

SDV Tuning Adapters Come to Oceanic Cable

Looks like the Switched Digital Video (SDV) tuning adapters are now rolling out in Hawaii. After an expected availability of December 2008, Oceanic Cable (Time Warner) is sending out letters to interested SDV customers to schedule installation of tuning adapters. Here’s the letter I got in the mail. I scheduled my appointment with some confusion […]

YouTube to the Presidential Rescue

I didn’t have an Obama Day today, but at work, Barack Obama’s inauguration was playing on a television in a conference room. I checked out part of it, but didn’t watch everything since I programmed my Tivo to record the “Presidential Inauguration” figuring I can watch at home. Playing back my Tivo recording, it recorded […]

iTiVo Under Active Development

After finding iTiVo to fetch recorded shows to my Mac, I’ve been using it more than Roxio’s Tivo Transfer. And better yet, iTiVo is under active development going from version 1.4 to 1.5 and now to 1.6 in a matter of weeks. Technorati Tags: tivo

More Tivo Love

One more note about why I love my Tivo – online scheduling. UH’s mens basketball against Prairie View A&M was on pay-per-view last night but the free replay is set for today at 10:00. While at work, I can log into Tivo.com and remotely schedule the recording. Nice! I need to check out Roderick Fleming’s […]

Tivo Notes from a Fan

Some notes from a Tivo fan. Tivo with HD rocks! Oh the clarity and colors! Add a CableCard, and you’re off. The Tivo pulls in the updated channel guide and readjusts Season Passes with the correct channels. Tivo HD recordings are huge! Only problem with recording in HD is the file size. 90 minutes of […]
