Possibly new bit of V52/V53 troubleshooting

Discussion in 'TiVo Roamio DVRs' started by dtivouser, Feb 3, 2014.

    Every weekday at 5:59pm switched digital video channels become unusable for me, usually with a V52 error but occasionally V53. I think it's related to overlapping recordings (there are threads on that already).

    Today I called Tivo support about this again and they quickly started talking about the signal strength and SNR being too high. We tried an experiment by removing the coax connection to the Roamio and power cycling it. When it came up, DVR Diagnostics was still showing ~17db SNR even with the coax unplugged. This caused the tech to immediately recommend a warrantee replacement of the Tivo.

    I haven't seen this mentioned previously here. Sorry if it's been discussed previously.

    Now how do I get my recordings moved to the new Tivo!

    If you have Time Warner, you likely won't be able transfer recordings to the new TiVo (unless the recordings are from your local stations).

    If you a have a provider that does not overuse the CCI Byte, keep both TiVo's on the network, navigate to the bottom of the My Shows list on the new TiVo and click the name of the other TiVo. Drill into each show one-by-one; you'll be able to transfer them to the new TiVo from there. I don't think you can tell TiVo to transfer more than 1 show at a time.
