Duplicate channels (not SD/HD)

My Tivo Premiere suddenly has duplicate channels for many of the stations (i.e., channel 5 KTLA is listed twice in the guide with the same channel number and station name). Not all of the channels are duplicated but it includes a mix of local channels and cable channels. I can deselect the duplicate channels in Settings->Channels->Channel List and they are removed from the guide. I am on Time Warner Cable in Los Angeles. I rebooted Tivo and I also repeated guided setup. Neither action fixed the problem and I still have duplicate channels in my channel list.

One of the greatest things about TiVo is it’s ability to pause a show to give you a glimpse of something you might have otherwise missed. It didn’t take long for show creators to start adding in Easter Eggs that only viewers with this magical ability would be able to find; but in the last few years, some have taken it a bit further. For years, whenever a character in a movie or TV show mentioned a phone number, they used the semi-fictional “555” telephone exchange (with a few, notable exceptions). But Continue Reading

Premiere slow connecting to recorded shows after one pass update

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - 4 hours 47 min ago
Anyone else notice it takes a few seconds to connect to a recorded show after the one pass update? I restarted but still didn't fix it. I get the round dots spinning until it connects

However if there are a few recordings in one folder and I choose

"play all in this group" I get no delay. Strange

Thanks

Well, this was a set-up episode for sure, but I still really liked it. Any time we get to see Art, or Tim and Raylan, or, yes thank you, Winona! it's a good episode no matter what.

One thing I'm concerned about is that Winona seems to have given Raylan the go-ahead to stay in Harlan. I really, really don't want to see that happen. The last episode of the series should have Raylan going off somewhere else to live with Winona and his daughter, just like the first episode of the series had him coming back to Harlan.

I'm wondering about Boyd. He talks such a good game with Ava but he clearly doesn't trust her and I don't see that changing. Once she tells him everything she told Raylan and the Marshals, and he gets no more use out of flipping her, I don't see good things for Ava. Of course, maybe she's smart enough to have figured that out as well... I guess we'll see!

I'm wondering who the next set of bad guys is; Tim and Raylan decimated Ty's gang but there's still too much show left to go without a new crew of idiot criminals to be running around :p

TivoHD says service is inactive?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 03/03/2015 - 23:49
I've had my TivoHD for years, and have never had a problem until now. I haven't recently changed anything.

My account is up to date according to tivo.com (cc hasn't expired, etc.)
In System Information says my account is in good standing.
I can connect to the tivo service fine.

But when I try to go to the guide, is says my service is not currently active. If I go to tivo.com/activate and enter my service number, it says I already have service!

I know tivo support is my best bet, but they're closed right now.

This sucks. I can't use the guide or record anything. Does anybody have any suggestions?

Can Roamio's 3TB disk be cloned?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 03/03/2015 - 20:44
I'm experiencing some numerous freezing of playback of recorded shows on my Roamio's 3TB drive.

Interesting enough, when I rewind back to the same spot, it does not freeze as before.

I suspect the hard drive maybe going bad.

I have another spare 3TB drive. Can I use my hard drive duplicator to make a copy of the old drive and put the new drive back to Roamio and expect it to work?

TiVo revenue, profit beat estimates as subscriptions rise

This is really good news on sales and revenue.

Quote: March 3 (Reuters) - Digital video recorder maker TiVo Inc reported better-than-expected quarterly revenue and profit, helped by higher subscriptions.

The company's shares rose 7 percent in extended trading on Tuesday.

TiVo's net subscriber additions rose to 340,000 in the fourth quarter from 319,000, a year earlier. Analysts on average had estimated additions of 328,000, according to research firm StreetAccount.

TiVo had the best fourth quarter in seven years in terms of net subscriber additions in its retail business, Chief Executive Tom Rogers said. The business includes sales from TiVo Roamio and TiVo Roamio OTA products.

Expenses incurred for acquiring these subscribers fell about 25 percent, he said.

The company sells its products through cable TV partners such as Virgin Media in the UK, ONO in Spain and Com Hem AB in Sweden.

TiVo's net income rose to $7.1 million, or 7 cents per share, in the quarter ended Jan. 31 from $710,000, or 1 cent per share, a year earlier. Net revenue rose 7.3 percent to $114.1 million.

Analysts on average had expected a profit of 4 cents per share and revenue of $89.9 million, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

Shares of the San Jose, California-based company were trading at $12.05 after the bell.

HDD Upgrade problems with Comcast/Cablecards

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 03/03/2015 - 19:20
Hey guys, first post here. Just got my first TiVo and love it!

I bought the base Roamio and quickly realized I would need more space.

Bought the Western Digital WD30EURX and install went smoothly.

My problem now is that I can't access my premium channels or Comcast ONDemand.

I knew I would need to re-pair the cablecard and I called a Comcast tech recommend on the forums(he is awesome and got my initial setup issues fixed quick!)

Anyway, he says he has seen the same problem with TiVo HD upgrades and the inability to access premium channels. Everything checks out on the Comcast side.

My options now are:

1. Throw old HD back in and see if it still works. This would rule out a bad cablecard/Comcast issue.

2. Try to get a new cablecard and go through the whole setup process again. This seems less likely to solve my issue as the cablecard worked fine before the HDD upgrade

Any thoughts? Has anyone heard of this issue? Will putting the old drive in to test cause any issues?

Excerpt from today's press release - exciting things to come?

This is an excerpt from todays Q4 FY15 earnings release by TiVo. This excerpt followed discussion of importance and potential of TiVo-owned business (i.e. retail). I wonder if this means they are closer to amazon fire / chromecast support and user profiles...

"To that point, we are making enhancements to build on our diverse suite of advanced television products for the operator and retail markets. This includes our efforts to bring TiVo to more devices, add more cloud-based functionality, expand personalization and content options, as well as serve the needs of operators and consumers that go without a Pay TV package through our TiVo OTA products."

Add this streaming video

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 03/03/2015 - 16:42
This is a new feature I haven't seen discussed much. It is pretty useful, but it also needs to be fleshed out more. Basically as it stands you search for a video in TiVo's master search on the streaming services (i.e. a TV episode or a movie). You find it and have the option to add it to your list. They all go in a folder together. It is a good way to accumulate a list of movies to watch, a memory of sorts right on the TiVo list we look at every day.

I would like to see this expanded in three ways. For one, it needs the no rental or buy option. This is a no brainer. I want to be able to search for say Dallas Buyer's Club, currently for rent on Amazon and Vudu, and tell it no renting or buying. It would not then show up on my list until it is free on a service that I subscribe to.

Second, I would like TiVo to maintain the database by adding movies when they premiere in theaters, not when they first pop up on a service like Vudu. I want to be able to see the hype for something like the third Hunger Games movie when it comes out and add it then.

Third, to add the first two together, I want a tiered system of appearing and being deleted from my list. If a movie I added when it was in theaters becomes available to buy on Amazon, I want it to appear on my list. If I delete it, it reappears when it is available to rent. If I delete it again, it reappears when it is free on a streaming service. That is unless you set it to no rent or buy to begin with, then of course it would wait for Netflix or what have you.

All this feels like a natural extension of the new OnePass philosophy. Thoughts?

Anyone else having this issue with One-Pass?

I am a baseball fan in NYC and we have 2 teams that I follow: The Yankees and The Mets. Of necessity, I time-shift my games. They are carried on 2 cable outlets (YES and SNY) and 1 broadcast channel (WPIX-11). With Season Pass last year I was able to set up for 2 different channels, so I got most of the games. It wasn't perfect but it did the job. However, NOW, with One-Pass, my choices for channel selection are as follows: 11 WPIX, or 26 SNY, or 53 YES, or 306 MLBN, or 320 SNY, or 321 YES, or 1212 WPIX or *ALL*. This means that I can either select only 1 channel, which would be like splitting the baby in half, or EVERY SINGLE GAME broadcast in NYC that is labelled "MLB Baseball" which will effectively fill up my hard drive in less than a week! What I, AND I suspect many of your subscribers in multi-team markets, would like is the ability to say that I would like to record WPIX 11 (which is the over-the-air outlet) and 26 SNY and 53 YES. I only need to record one of each of those even though they each have 2 listings (theoretically 1 for standard and 1 for HD). I don't want to automatically record EVERY ESPN, MLB Network and FOX game. I have a big box, but there's no way I can handle that without spending a lot of time erasing games. I am looking for the ability to include only specific channels and exclude others. As it stands now, One-Pass is absolutely useless to me and I will be forced to manually set up for about 280 games over the course of the season.

cTivo error - incorrect media key

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 03/03/2015 - 15:23
I am getting the error "incorrect media key" when trying to connect to my Tivo. I know my MAK is entered correctly, I've verified it several times both using the Tivo menu and on the Tivo.com website. cTivo finds it without a problem over Bonjour. I've also tried connecting manually using the IP address of the Tivo.

My log file is below.

I'm running cTivo version 2.4.0b7 (534) trying to connect to a Roamio 4 tuner. Both the Tivo and Mac are connecting over wifi.

Has anyone had this issue? Thanks for the help!

System consists of 2-TiVo series 3, a Premiere and a mini. kmttg v1.1j installed.

Remote issue is with Premiere only - all other devices respond to all remote commands from kmttg.

Premiere will refresh Now Playing and properly report disk usage. Other normal remote functions, i.e., Guide, Info, TiVo, Ch up/Dn, etc. - no response - again Premiere only.

iOS App not showing all channels

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 03/03/2015 - 11:27
When setting up my new Roamio yesterday, I didn't enable all the HD channels. Then I went back to the DVR and did so, and they show up on my Minis, but not on the iOS app.

Specifically, I see the HD broadcast channels on the iOS app, but none of the extended basic channels (Discovery, etc). I see them in SD, but not in the FIOS HD channel range. I do see all the HBO I subscribe to, SD and HD both.

If I change the guide filter from "My Channels" to "All Channels", then I see some additional channels (which are enabled, IIRC), but none of the missing ones.

I've rebooted the Roamio at least once, and I've also deleted and re-installed the app a couple times. Is this just a case of the new DVR still not having all the guide data onboard yet?

Roamio tips and tricks?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 03/03/2015 - 11:22
After returning to the TiVo fold after a brief diversion through FIOS DVR-land, I'm wondering if there is a list of tips and tricks for the Roamio? I know there are some trickplay settings (that used to be vaguely easter-eggish but now seem to be part of the actual interface), but was wondering about other tricks.

I've only been running less than 24 hours, but already I'm wondering about:

* is it possible to re-map channel numbers, so that when I enter "4" on the remote, I get the HD channel (which FIOS maps to 504)?

* Is there a way to "jump to HD" (like on the FIOS DVR, I can hit "C" on any SD channel to automatically switch to the HD version of that channel)

* Is it possible to get a list of what each tuner is currently tuned to?

* It seems the Live TV button switches through tuners, but it doesn't seem to be always hitting all 6, but then I haven't carefully mapped it out either


Beyond these things, what cool tricks are there that I haven't even considered yet?
