  1. Tivo Transfer & The Myserious Red Circle Slash

    FYI: i called Comcast and was eventually told that i would need to go to the local office to have this done. said something was wrong with my "package" that was set on the card. so i took the cable card down to the office and told them and they ended up just giving me a new cable card. got home, put it in to the tivo, called the activation line, the girl said she activated it and it may take up to 30 minutes before shows would show up. i waited 30 minutes and still had NO tv channels, so i called again. this time a guy re-activated it and also "paired" it. now i have tv channels but no HD channels like i used to have. he said it could take up to an hour for the HD channels to show up; it's been several hours and still none. but when i had him on the phone i also asked him to do what you said about making sure my card was set so i 'could' transfer shows - that currently some shows are transferable and some are "protected". he had NO clue what the hell i was talking about. i explained it all to him several times, but he couldn't get his brain around what i was talking about; he just kept going back to the card being activated & paired blah blah blah. holy moly. so i tried asking to speak to a supervisor or be transferred to another tek support dept that could help me with this and he just said "no, can't happen". anyways, long story short, we went round'n'round a few times before i gave up. so i called back again using a different number; explained the sitch to them again and they transferred me right back to the activation dept; and the girl i spoke with there was clueless & didn't care to try to understand, just kept reading from a script that wasn't applicable. ugh. she even ended up re-activating & re-pairing the card all over again without my permission. she just couldn't understand what i was saying either. is it me? how could it be that us users know more about the #$^@ product than their tek support!? so, now i'm right back where i was except now with no HD channels. ugh. this is ridiculous. anybody got any other thoughts/suggestions? thanks.
  2. How To Edit Metadata Text Without Converting Video?

    hi bob, OH, i see, there's a difference between pyTivo and pyTivoX (LOL). thanks for that. i may just go ahead and try these at some point this week. i'm pretty disappointed with this Toast software. that said, you won't believe this... yesterday we discovered that the reason there was no sound during playback of shows i transferred nor shows played on Hulu -- the HDMI port on my tv was going bad (it's an old tv). so we actually ended up buying a new tv yesterday - hooked it up - and everything works! well, everything regarding the sound issues. i'll update my post @ http://forums.tivo.com/pe/action/forums/displaypost?postID=11083319
  3. Tivo Transfer & The Myserious Red Circle Slash

    hi Bob, update... to answer your question: yes, when i received the cable card, i did tell them it was for a Tivo. i have Comcast too. i did go to the IP address in the web browser, and it's protected there too. there's a couple that are downloadable, but most are not. i just chatted with comcast tek support and they said i would have to go back to my local store where i got the card & have them make that change. this, of course, was after a long argument about rights. ugh. more to come. thanks for your help!!!
  4. How To Edit Metadata Text Without Converting Video?

    hi Bob, thanks again for the tips. honestly, with all the other troubles, i just didn't feel like i had it in me to figure out these other programs. so i just bought the Toast 11 per the Tivo website's advice. but, i guess i'll have no choice if i can't get this all working right. at first look, when i looked, i didn't understand which program did what nor how to get them downloaded & installed. one of them said i'd have to "compile" it... over my head. i've seen mention of: pyTivo Streambaby KMTTG cTivo iTivo Tivo Decoder iSkysoft something Tivo Desktop etc etc etc i just want something SIMPLE and EASY and FAST. a way to get shows from my Tivo to my Mac, and also a way to get shows from my Mac to my Tivo without any fuss.

  6. Tivo Transfer & The Myserious Red Circle Slash

    WOW!!! THANKS BOB!!! i had NO idea about this sort of thing! ugh. my old Tivo had cable cards too, but, maybe they were there before this CCI thing was around. either way, i'll be calling Comcast later to find out. will post back with info. thanks again!!!

  13. Mac2Tivo 1.2.1 Menulet?

    hi tsantee... again ;-) so, wondering if you misread "Menulet" for "Manual" ??? still curious if there is a "menulet" downloadable for Mac2Tivo that i haven't found yet. i notice the same thing with RXTivoServer. wondering if that's the actual process that Tivo needs? i haven't had time to experiment yet. i just wanna get this stuff rollin' first.
  14. Mac2Tivo Crapping Out On Me. I'm Stuck...

    @tsantee thanks for your reply. 1. Tivo Desktop has a hidden tab specifically for Video's. it'll show up if you click the pref pane with the option key held down (or is it the command key - i can't remember right now). 2. i discovered too that Tivo Desktop is a 32 bit app, so when you click on it in the system preferences, then it has to relaunch the sys prefs in 32bit mode to run it. 3. just to be clear, i did trash Tivo Desktop, and any mention of it in my first post above was purely for reference. my problems are now with Mac2Tivo. Adding the folder to Mac2Tivo is a given. i've followed all the instructions and more. so with that in mind, if you or anybody else has any thoughts on the above matter, i would greatly appreciate hearing them.
  15. Tivo Transfer & The Myserious Red Circle Slash

    @tsantee thanks for all your help on other posts, but with this one, my reply is... "why?" :-) it's about the "Tivo Transfer" app which is what this forum has in its title.
