kmttg stopped working

4 hours 15 min ago
I realize this is a vague problem, but there is no obvious solution at the moment.

I was happily running kmttg on Windows 7 (not installed as a service) for a month or two. But it has recently stopped working. When I click on the .jar file I now get a quick flash of the interface screen, it disappears and then nothing.

I tried downloading and installing it again, but I get the same issue. Should I be deleting the files or editing the registry to remove all traces before re-installing?

don't want to be greedy but

now that amazon prime and vudu are (almost) here... does anyone know anything about HBO go on tivo?

A Thanks to the TiVo Dev Team

4 hours 29 min ago
I’ve been a longtime TiVo fan. I’ve had the Directivo, an S3 HD, and now have just upgraded to the Roamio Plus.

I wanted to express my gratitude to the team who developed this product. It satisfies so many of my longtime wishes for what a TiVo could be. On the short list: RF remote, remote finder, fast clean interface, PIP menus, streaming to iOS (sorry androids), 6 tuners, easy HD upgrade, mini replacing cable rentals.

The innovation of autoconfiguring hard drives added to the machine is my favorite new feature. Manually upgrading both the Directivo (remember telnetting in thru the serial port???) and the HD was a chore. That is one smart dev team.

Do I wish I could stream direct to my computers as well as iOS devices? Of course I do. I also hope our android brothers and sisters get to the promised land as we 🍎 folk have. I wish that kmttg could download faster. 90 Mbps is sure nicer than my HD's 10 Mbps, but the green light on my gigabit switch says we could do better.

Overall, I’m very happy with the product and wanted to provide a note of thanks toward those who work hard to innovate.

pytivo: Session cannot be authenticated; try login again

7 hours 4 min ago
Hello All,

I have setup a new pytivo setup on Windows 8 and everything works except when I push to my Tivo.

I can pull from Tivo and from my Tivo, I can transfer shows through the interface.

Whenever I try to push from pyTivo to my Tivo, I get:
pytivo: Session cannot be authenticated; try login again

I have checked my account on Tivo, I have even changed my tivo.com password to check and see if that would do anything.

I have rebooted my Tivo as well.

My original setup which runs on Windows works, fine. I can push from that instance of pyTivo to my Tivo without any problems.

If anyone has any ideas, that would be great. I've been searching on this problem and can only find posts about when mind.tivo.com went down.

This is what the debug file looks like:

TiVo to Laptop

11 hours 15 min ago
I am temporarily without a tv set and want to know if I can hook up my TiVo to my laptop to make sure the TiVo is working correctly with a new cable card. The laptop has HDMI. Can this be done? And I don't have the remote at the moment so how can I run guided setup without one?

Big Brother - 9/16/14

Tue, 09/16/2014 - 21:39
See ya, Frankie!

It couldn't have worked out any more perfect for Derrick. This was the absolute best time for him to win HoH. It not only guarantees him a spot in the final three, but it also allows him to sit back and let someone else get the blood on their hands when they vote someone out tomorrow. I assume he will nominate Caleb and Victoria, but it's not like it really matters. Whoever wins the veto comp holds all the power.

iPad streaming works from 1 location but not 2nd

Tue, 09/16/2014 - 21:17
Tivo support could not help me with this issue so I'm hoping to get some help here. I have 2 Romio Pros, one in our primary home and another in a vacation home. I can stream recordings from my primary home but not from the other. I can see the recordings, it tries to start the streaming session and then fails with a dialog that says "There was a problem connecting to your streaming device." It works fine when i am at the house but not when trying to connect through another network.

Is this some type of firewall issue?

Activation

Tue, 09/16/2014 - 20:24
Does the tivo have to be activated before going through guide setup and watching tv?

Freezing up overnight

Tue, 09/16/2014 - 19:44
Tivo HD, has worked fine for a couple years, suddenly is freezing up. Usually overnight, but not always. No pixellation issues, no stuttering, just no video output when we turn the TV on the next day, and it hasn't recorded anything since the lockup. Rebooting takes care of it, but that was happening once a week, now it's happening every day.

Advice?

Amazon Prime showed up on Roamio

Anyone else seeing this? Just set it up and it works. There are now two Amazon apps.

Any news on TiVo & Wii U integration?

Tue, 09/16/2014 - 16:59
About to get a Wii U; it'll live next to the TiVo regardless, what's the latest on them working together?

Premiere had missing tuner from Mini - Resolved

Tue, 09/16/2014 - 16:26
Not sure if anyone else experienced what I did with the mini.

I bought the mini when it first came out. I hooked it to my P4 and it stole a tuner. I bought a second mini and let it share the single stolen tuner.

I was excited about the prospect of the dynamic tuner feature, but forgot about it.

I eventually bought a roamio pro and switched my minis to use those tuners, but one tuner was still reserved on my P4. I actually did not notice that I had a missing tuner until this week.

Well here is how you get your missing tuner back if you have one stuck.

From TiVo Central > Settings & Messages > Settings > Channels > Channel List.
On that screen enter the numbers 88634.
You should hear a tivo beeping or two. Now if you were missing a tuner you have it back.

However if you were not missing a tuner, now you are! lol. Just go back in and do it again.

Best of luck and hopefully this helps someone else,

Rick

Echo/Reverb Audio

Tue, 09/16/2014 - 15:53
Lately I've noticed after Fast Forwarding or Rewinding and then hitting Play, the audio has a reverb or echo effect. I can hit the RW or FF, and then play, or even the jumpback button, and the problem will clear right up. Am I the only one having this issue?

$6.95 monthly going away?

Tue, 09/16/2014 - 13:33
Anyone else who has kept a Tivo for a while at the old $6.95 monthly rate logged onto Tivo lately?

I logged on to get the TSN of one of my units and noticed my $6.95 unit now says "We are processing your activation, please check back in 24 hours". In the past it showed "Tivo Service- Monthly".

Are they ending the $6.95 rate? If so, wonder what I will get- it is on one of my older Premieres. May be time to add another mini instead.

Can I connect a hub to a Tivo Mini?

Tue, 09/16/2014 - 11:42
Hi
I have a Tivo Premiere Q in the living room and Tivo Minis in the bedrooms. The Minis are connected through MoCa.

I'm looking to use the MoCa connection in the bedrooms rather than Wifi. Can I simply connect a hub to the ethernet port of the Mini in order to connect multiple devices (xbox, sonos, roku)?

Or do I need additional hardware?

Thanks

Anyone tried Tivo OTA and Mini

Tue, 09/16/2014 - 10:41
I have an OTA waiting for me at BestBuy, because Tivo support told me they are compatible. Margret Schmidt ( Tivo VP ) tweeted that they are not.
I have replied to both CS and Margret asking for clarification.

Has anyone actually tried a Mini with an OTA? I would rather not make two trips to BestBuy!

TV can't recognize New Tivo Roamio

Tue, 09/16/2014 - 08:17
My series 2 Tivo is on its way out I am told. It keeps freezing while watching TV. So, I ordered the Roamio at Amazon...got it, loved the easy set up...and then the TV would not find it...All inputs kept saying that there is no signal and to check that the external device is plugged in. I tried everything...switching cables, even bought a new hdmi cable to see if it was that...same issue...removed the splitter and everything else, so it was just the new device and the tv and wi-fi...nothing. I called Tivo and the guy seemed uncertain. When he found out that I bought it a Amazon, he said, I should call them and return it as it's probably faulty.

Any idea what I am missing...the TV is only 2 years old...HD Plasma, and everything else works on it...It can find the DVD player, the regular cable when hooked up, the old Tivo, and also chromecast...just can't find the new TIVO. :(

Please advise before I send back the new Tivo...thanks.

Toshiba RS-TX20 Lifetime Service

Tue, 09/16/2014 - 00:04
Are there any Toshiba RS-TX20 Tivo units that Do NOT have lifetime basic service? I bought my Toshiba single tuner unit a few years ago (used, via ebay) and I have been using it for the past year or more with the basic service: three day max program listing; Recording any program during the three day window, etc.
I read about the tivo desktop and installed it on my PC, but I couldn't get it to work. After a couple days searching, I spent a while talking to Tivo customer support (two people on the phone and one chat) and they claim that my unit does NOT have lifetime basic service and the previous owner had paid monthly until he discontinued service (and sold the unit). The Tivo website and the CS rep. both insist that I must pay $12 something a month to activate my Toshiba, but it seems pretty activated to me--at least for basic service.
So, is it possible that my Toshiba is a "non lifetime basic service" unit that somehow has been receiving what looks like basic service, or is this a problem with the Tivo database, or just a misunderstanding?
Oh, my System Information screen on the Toshiba says it is "Series 2" but the CS rep insisted it was a "series 1"

Any ideas?

motorola cablecard server

Does anyone know how the cablecard negotiates with the motorola server and delivers content? My question arises with trouble pairing a cablecard and was wondering how this works.
