Discussion in 'TiVo Roamio DVRs' started by BlackBetty, Aug 26, 2013.
I considered putting in the music from 2001, but I decided it was a bit hokey
Jeez Betty lighten up. Just kidding, hence the happy face added to my post. No "poo poo" intended.
So... When is hookup day? I have a good feeling...
Dan any videos of the roamio in action? Would like to see the speed improvements over my premiere units.
I'm still on the fence about purchasing. If I can get the plus for $100-$150 off, then I'll probably pull the trigger. Also I'll probably wait to see how the out of home streaming works in oct/nov.
I paid full price at launch for my premieres. That still leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Figures now tivo gets it right with the roamio. Should have released this box 3 years ago instead.
Already done. Completely smooth. Total time on the phone was just 14 minutes, most of which was spent waiting for a supervisor to unpair the card from my old TiVo before the CSR I was talking to could pair it to the new one.
I think the Engadget review had an action video showing the speed.
I'll tell you this the speed is exactly what you'd want it to be. Every button press is responded to immediately. Even if the UI isn't ready because it's downloading something from the internet you're met with an immediate bong telling you it received the button press. Unlike the Premiere which regularly would simply ignore button presses or queue them up and then respond to them randomly. I can navigate the Roamio UI as quickly as my fingers can push the buttons. It's worth the upgrade just for the speed improvement alone.
I would agree with the idea that unpacking videos would have limited value. Our box got pretty mashed up by the time we picked it up at WalMart (site to store purchase), but I decided to check the unit out before just returning it. It turns out that very little is in the box other than the Roamio and the remote. So it had plenty of empty space to absorb the crushes (perhaps allowing them in the first place?).
An unpacking video would have been very boring and quite brief. "Here it is in the box. Here it is moved to the shelf. Here it is hooked up."
I can't see that being very helpful or worth the effort.
It was very brief and boring, but they asked so I obliged...
There are already videos on Youtube of the Roamio menu speeds. Do a search there and you will find them.
Wow... I just lost my last excuse not to upgrade.
I don't know, you did just spend $85K on a car, that seems like a viable excuse if you're really looking for one. (jealous)
Hey Dan. Have you happened to try the YouTube App yet? I'm trying to watch some videos and it's so laggy it's almost unusable. Did this improve significantly with the new model?
Not Dan, but I have used the DIAL functionality a few times via my iPad for Youtube videos and was impressed. I never bothered with Youtube on my Premieres/Elite.
Oh cool. Thanks! That's good news. It's pretty bad on my Elite too... The only concern I have now is PyTiVo playing nice with it. I'm seeing for some it's not working properly. That would be... bad... for me. I use PyTiVo all the time.
Where is mention of that? Got a link?
Used pyTiVo to transfer something this morning. Worked great was super fast too. Uploaded a 45 minute video in just a couple minutes.
Huh. It's obviously not a problem for everyone. Did you read that post I linked to? Could just be related to his config...
