View Full Version : Tivo Lockup Question

06-19-2003, 09:25 AM
Seems that whenever I run TyStudio and download a program to my PC the Tivo will lock up. Its at different points of the program too. I got to 99% complete on a 2+ hour movie the first time then 32% the second. Dam I was pissed. 99 freakin percent.

Anyway ive tried it with various lengh shows and 9 out of 10 times it will lock up Tivo.

Running 2.5.2 and TyStudio. Anyone have any ideas?

Try placing the DTivo in standby mode to stop buffering the video while the extraction is taking place. You can also try tuning each tuner to unused channels to accomplish the same thing. The idea is to reduce the number of process running on the DTivo during the extraction process. Anything running on the DTivo while you're trying to extract will use up the CPU's resources and bog down the extraction. I used to have a problem with the DTivo rebooting while extracting with earlier versions of TyTool.
