Did cut the cord
Recently, I ask the good folks over gdgt, what good alternative options there are over cable, and the suggestions were outstanding. I did cut the cord, now my other question to you is, what about the Tivo? Do you still a cable provider for it or you can use it to stream online content ?

What's the best way to use your DVR (or other home theater devices) from another room?
I'm looking to use my primary home theater's TiVo Premiere to play back video on a second TV set downstairs in the bedroom, and I've got hard ethernet, coax, and power as means of transit.
Originally I was just looking alternatives to the TiVo Preview (which, knowing TiVo, probably won't be available to consumers until sometime later in 2012 -- if we're really lucky) and TiVo MRV (I don't really want to pay for a second TiVo, plus service), but at the end of the day it's probably easier to just...

TiVo iPad app unable to find TiVo Premiere box?
Has anyone else had an issue with the TiVo iPad app being unable to find a TiVo Premiere box on the network? Things were working fine not too long ago, but I haven't used the app for a bit and after upgrading tonight (to version 1.0.4 build 1727) I keep getting an error: "This application is intended for use with TiVo Premiere boxes only.

I was using an RV Convert to copy movies I own from DVD TO my Tivo HD (kinda like a video juke box).
It was working fine for the last year. Our building just converted from Comcast analog to Digital. Because I already had Cable Cards in my Tivo, I didn't need to get a converter box or do anything special, but after the conversion, I am no longer able to play the DVD and see/record it on Channel 4. It says something like no channel detected. If the DVD player is on, and I go into the setup / video on my tivo, it shows great DIGITAL signals for everything but channel 4. This is just a guess:...

I have owned just about every Tivo product over the years. So I was excited when Tivo announced the new premiere unit. I purchased one right away.
The unit arrived and I make an appointment with the cable company to come out and install the required mutli-stream card. The cable company came to my house twice with only a single stream card. So after about a week and 3 or 4 phone calls I finally got the required card installed. The unit worked the first day. Then it stopped displaying a picture. After having the cable company out several more times and about 6 calls to Tivo support, I got the unit exchanged. Now the second unit is doing the... Read more →

OTA HD and Tivo
How does Over The Air HD work with Tivo? Does anyone have experience? Can I cancel my Tivo subscription if I dont need their EPG? I am assuming I can use the signal from the antenna as a source and then set my Season Passes to be hard coded to channel and time. Is there a better solution?
