Audio Problem

Wed, 07/23/2014 - 18:14

I'm having audio problems whit my TiVo HD. I previously had problems with the picture freezing and I replaced all of the capacitors on the PS with the help of the tutorial here at TC.

Now I have no audio sometimes at half of my channels and I know that it's not my source because I have OTA and I put the input on my TV and I did have audio.

Any Thoughts ?


Is Tivo Forcing Recordings?

Wed, 07/23/2014 - 15:49
I've had a Tivo for 2 years, and I have it set to only record shows that I want it to record. Lately it keeps recording Bill O'reilly. I have No season pass for Bill O'reilly and I have No wishlist for Bill O'reilly. When I look in my "To Do" list, it is never scheduled to record. However every day it show up recorded . I'm the only one using this Tivo. So, I can't understand why it keeps recording.

Amazon video download no longer available for Roamio's

Wed, 07/23/2014 - 11:54
Amazon has removed support for downloading videos to Roamio's, though you can still download to Premiere's and older HD's and Series 3. I'm not sure when this happened but as of now us Roamio owners are out of luck. I'm trying to get a refund for 2 videos I purchased only to find that I can no longer download to my Roamio.

House passes STELA, ends Cablecard integration requirement

Wed, 07/23/2014 - 11:47

Hasn't passed Senate yet so no telling what the final form will be, but removes the requirement that cableCos have to eat their own dog food (or crap if you prefer). Cards, that is.

TiVo and Comcast HD Technology Fee

Wed, 07/23/2014 - 11:42
I picked up an HD DTA for a new bedroom TV yesterday. After I activated the DTA, I only received standard definition channels. When I contacted Comcast, they told me I would have to pay a $10 monthly HD Technology Fee to receive HD channels on my bedroom TV. They told me that I have to pay this fee because I don't have a standard Comcast cable box.

My primary box is a TiVo Roamio with a CableCard. Must I really pay an additional $10 fee just to receive HD on a second TV? This policy seems like little more than a blatant money grab from Comcast. Have any TiVo owners had any luck getting this fee waived? Thanks for any help you can provide. Thanks.

Something actually happening on TiVo Developer Channel

Wed, 07/23/2014 - 10:00
Something is actually happening for "TiVo Developer Channel" web page:

I had to sign in to actually see something and there's a section called "Interactive I/O Docs" only visible after logging in. Not sure I understand exactly what it's all about but maybe someone with time on their hands can explore some more.

Tivo Video Player Native App?

Wed, 07/23/2014 - 09:59
I'm just new to Tivo and have the simple question about a Native App inside Tivo. Are developers allow to create an app that plays videos? Either internally or on your the network.

I just think that this route of using your pc and installing third party products is not ideal. For example I have a WD Live streamer that plays everything on a share or external HD.

TiVo's remote 1-2 switch

Wed, 07/23/2014 - 09:05
Hello folks,

I have a sport bar like setup with 4 Seires 2 boxes, and use 2 remotes: one setup as addresses 1 and 2, and the other as addresses 3 and 4.

Now I bought another remote and try to set it up as 1 and 2, so that I could have 2 remotes that would control the same boxes 1 and 2. And because I already have the boxes set up properly, I only tried to setup the remotes, so I drove away from home and setup remotes by pressing TiVo+Pause and so on. It doesn't seem to work. It just sporadically works on both boxes with either switch positions, solooks like a mess.

My question is - was that my mistake that I tried to setup only the remote? Should I do the full setup like plug off other boxes, etc? Or the remote I bought is defective?

20.4.2 Mini tweak!

Wed, 07/23/2014 - 02:38
Hadn't seen anyone else note this...

Since getting 20.4.2, when you hit power, both The tv powers on, AND the Mini comes out of its sleeping "press tivo" mode automatically.

Before anyone says it, It's not doing any kind of HDMI handshake or CEC because when I manually turn on the tv, I still see the sleep mode.

I AM using a Roamio RF remote paired with a slide dongle, so mileage may vary with IR...

Tivo Roamio Pro only shows 6.38 hrs on the time line.

Wed, 07/23/2014 - 01:12
I have a TiVo Roamio Pro. I down loaded all shows of 24, cut the ads, beginning and credits. I ended up with a 7hr 58 min programs. I pushed the program back to tivo. On the green time line it only showing 6 hrs and 38 minutes. Why would it only showing the 6 hrs and 38 mins?

Can/how can I fix my broken Tivo

Wed, 07/23/2014 - 00:31
I have a a Sony SVR2000 (first generation Tivo, that is) with lifetime service. It also has a cache card It had a battle with gravity, and gravity won. It won't turn on. I tried all the obvious things (like plugging and unplugging it), with no love. I suspect it's a broken hard drive, especially since the guy who fixed it so that it would talk to the cache card didn't secure the hard drive to the frame afterwards.

I probably have a copy of the hard drive from when the cache card was installed, though I'm not 100% sure where it is.

I am... not the most tech savvy person in the world. So, can someone give me the for-dummies version of what I need to do at this point? (including, for example, "buy this thing, then have a tech-savvy person install it for you" or whatever)

OperaTV Store Backdoor

Tue, 07/22/2014 - 22:16
When Tivo announced we were getting Opera TV Store, there was an SDK floating around that would allow you to test internal code if you knew were to find the DEVICE ID. Guess what? Now we do!


Today I found a new app above the opera tv store that says "My Opera TV Store Apps" I opened it and sure enough those apps I bookmarked preloaded so what. But what I found caught my attention when you click Menu, About you are given the DEVICE ID

This is a very long lengthy ID that is bound to the TiVo for app testing.
For opera this is controlled by Dragonfly part of the Opera Browser.:D

Happy Hunting!

Tivo and Comcast

Tue, 07/22/2014 - 19:12
My daughter just moved and set up her Comcast installation and was told they no longer support cable cards for Tivo because they have their own DVR. Don't they HAVE to support them?

They presented the promotional rates to her if she canceled her previous account and opened a new account. If she just transferred her account, they wouldn't give her the promotional rate, but they said she'd be grandfathered with her current cable card.

Does this sound right? Just curious if anyone here knew anything about that.
