    It isn't the TV watching that makes it desirable to hook up a TiVo through the console. It is the fact that you can launch apps (Netflix, etc) and games without having to switch inputs and you can easily switch back and forth to your TiVo. The channel changing, etc is a bit wonky but I don't think most people are trying to use the Xbox guide over the TiVo guide.

    I have my Roamio set to output in "Dolby Digital" and the Xbox One
    set to DTS.

    i have my Tivo running through my XBOne. is anybody else having a lag issue when switching tuners? several seconds, not just a brief lag when switching tuners. goes to a black screen.

    this started when i connected to XBOne, so i know it has to be a XBOne issue.

    I just connected my Secondary XBOne to a TiVo Mini tonight. With the Mini I don't notice any lag issues. It changes the tuners as quick as when the XBOne wasn't there.

    With this setup I'm able to do more with the TiVo since I don't have any other TiVos in the room like I do in the Room that has a Roamio Basic going into an XBOne. The XBOne has worked well so far in changing channels, pausing etc from the Mini. Plus I have the XBOne turning on the receiver and TV too. So if I'm just going to watch Tv I won't be using my Harmony remote to turn them on/off.

    Yes, and that's the main reason I decided to remove the passthrough. The lag was awful. It's due to the DRM key needing passed every single freakin' time Tivo starts a recorded program. Boo.

    BTW, the "beta" digital audio passthrough sucked too. Even had popping in speakers. Oh well. No biggie. I may try it all again once Xbox delivers the Digital Audio over HDMI (i.e. comes out of Beta).

    try this. Pause one of your tuners, then switch to another live tuner, then switch from a live tuner back to the paused tuner. try switching tuners when one of them is paused and let me know what happens.

    I'll try it out in a few minutes.

    Edit: I just tried. It is the same as switching between live channels. The new picture pops up in under a second when the channels are the same resolution, and around a second when the channels are different resolutions, like 1080i to 720p. What do you see on yours?

    I do have my TiVos set for only 1080P output and my Roamio Basic is using OTA.

    So far the only issue I've seen is with my other setup connected to a TiVo mini. When I switched to 32bit I got a blank screen from the TV input and had to fully shut down the XBOne and reboot. But other than when I first changed the color depth it has been fine too. I didn't have that issue on my primary setup, but that also goes through my DVDO Duo.

    Edit: I just tried the same thing from my input that doesn't go through the XBOne. (With the XBOne in standby since my basic roamio goes through an hdmi splitter)The channel changes are a little faster. Like a split second when changing between channels with the same rez and just under a second when the channels have different resolutions.

    So it is slightly slower when going through the XBOne. I hadn't really noticed before sine I don't normally jump around between channels like that. Plus my basic is secondary to my Roamio Pro which is on FiOS. I guess I should connect my Pro to the XBOne sometime and see how that does.

    my settings:

    Tivo Roamio 1080p (60 fps) and 1080p (pass thru only)

    XBOne tv reso 1080p, HDMI auto detect, color depth 36 bits per pixel, color space RGB limited, HDMI audio DTS Digital Surround.

    Tivo to XBOne to Pioneer Elite SC7 to Sharp Elite Pro 60X5FD all via HDMI.


    Wifey likes to watch multiple 6:30 pm news programs. so she watches CBS on one tuner, NBC on another tuner, sometimes ABC on another tuner. she uses Pause to bounce around the news programs. the lag is significant and i would like to resolve the issue without having to remove XBox from the the keychain. we both like being able to control power on and off plus other voice commands with the Xbox.

    Don't think that color depth makes a difference in the visuals.

    Try setting the Xbox hdmi from auto to HDMI

    When you say lag what kind? If you're switched digital there's going to be a delay but that's not the Xbox causing it, it's the tuner resolving.

    ^^ thanks.
    the lag was several seconds of black screen. not just a brief second but several seconds. all started after the XB was put into the equation.

    changed XB from auto to HDMI. this required a hard reset of the XB so it would handshake with the Tivo again. also took a few seconds for the audio to come back.

    still have the lag issues when switching tuners if one or more tuners is paused. it's mainly when you switch from a live tuner back to a paused tuner. black screen and long lag.

    Roamio Pro running the latest software. What is it now 23.8? Something like that. I am out of town this week. I will check when I get back.

    With the latest update my Tivo Romeo Pro no longer will fast forward, rewind or view Netflix. Tivo said disconnect my Xbox, :mad:
    Anyone figure out a fix?

    why in the world would you use the Tivo's Netflix over Xbox One's anyway? "Xbox, go to Netflix" - bam.

    If I'm already using Tivo, which is 99% of the time, it's easier to use Netflix on the Tivo then switching all the inputs to the Xbone and waiting for it all to load.

    Yes but the user in question is passing through the XB1, which means the XB1 is already on and the TV is switched to it.

    Unfortunately audio from the XBOne HDMI input and it's apps are still borked. The surround audio still erroneously comes out of the rear surrounds.

    really? I don't have rear surrounds, only sides. I'll have to test it - I didn't notice that problem.
