There is no comparison, Kitchen Design Lancashire are far better quality cabinets than B&Q and cheaper.

Supreme Court decsion may effect Tivo?

Mon, 04/21/2014 - 22:27
Tomorrow (Tuesday April the 22nd) the United States Supreme court will begin hearing arguments which may pull the plug on Aereo and have lasting effects over streaming live TV to mobile devices.

If so, will Tivo Stream be effected by such?? I never heard of Aereo until now but what they do is very similier to how Tivo streams content to Apple and hopefully soon to Android devices?

Quote: For its New York customers, for instance, Aereo maintains a warehouse in Brooklyn filled with vertically-oriented blade servers equipped with thousands of tiny, thumbnail-sized antennae. When a subscriber wants to watch a TV show, Aereo temporarily assigns her one of those antennae, which captures the free, over-the-air signals available at the warehouse and then begins recording them on a tiny virtual DVR, which is also temporarily assigned to that individual subscriber. If the subscriber indicates that she wants to "watch" rather than save the recording for later viewing, Aereo's equipment will begin transmitting her the program from her own personalized DVR recording after a 6- or 7-second buffering delay. http://features.blogs.fortune.cnn.co...plug-on-aereo/

Very slow guide and forcing update

Mon, 04/21/2014 - 21:54
Hi guys,

I just upgraded my Romio to a Romio Plus. I've noticed that the Tivo Live Guide is slow - it takes about a second for it to scroll down to the next screen or even going down to the next channel. My base Romio was instantaneous. The grid guide is also instantaneous. I've rebooted several times, including a hard reboot. Any suggestions? A search hasn't really been fruitful.

Also, my Tivo won't update to the latest 24.1.x. (neither one was) - is there a way to force the update? I did register to the priority list, and I have been forcing connections to the mothership. I'm hoping that maybe the update will help the guide slowness issue

Another problem - it seems a lot of shows that are def repeats are being marked as new, so it's recording them. For instance, Veep plays every night on HBO, and the Tivo seems to think it's new every night.


SyFy Pacific guide off by 2 hours

Mon, 04/21/2014 - 21:52
Maybe it's just me, but my on-screen guide (and thus my season pass for Metal Hurlant Chronicles) has the wrong listings for the SyFy channel, both low-def and hi-def. Looks like it's all shifted by two hours? The content has not matched the info all day.

But an additional change to the line-up could be at work. The SyFy website does state that MHC now airs at 10pm (where last week it debuted at 8pm).

Benefit of Moca?

Mon, 04/21/2014 - 20:08
I purchased a new 6 tuner Roamio Plus. It is connected to the router via ethernet and works fine. I tried setting up a Moca network but it failed and I was told I needed a POE filter. Because I have been a very old and loyal customer the support rep sent me a POE filter. My question is this- I presently have only one Tivo and while in the past I have had up to 3, in my new house I will most likely only have one total Tivo. With only one Tivo is there any advantage or incentive to set up a Moca network?

The Good Wife 4/20/2014 All Tapped Out

Mon, 04/21/2014 - 19:50
Holy moly, I love this show.

I was so bummed when they killed off Will. I know the actor wanted out, but I just loved his character so much.

Now though, it's really getting good...what am I saying, it's GREAT!

The NSA stuff has been kinda interesting, but it has just exploded into awesome.

Kalinda and Canning sparring was awesome.

Peter flexing his muscles with the senator to get the tapping stopped was awesome.

Alicia confronting the State's Attorney about G.D...going down on him...omg, I almost feel out of my chair laughing.

I love this show!! RIP Will. Can't wait to see what happens with "L,G & C"

ETA: I may be a scumbag, but I'm your scumbag. Oh, so awesome.

Where are the Amazon Movies?

Mon, 04/21/2014 - 19:12
A dumb question, but where do the Amazon movies get stored once you rent them? I have rented a couple now and pay for them through my Amazon account through TiVo and it says they will be downloaded within 30 mins. But where? I have searched though every TiVo screen site and the Amazon site through TiVo and cannot find how to find the movies once I rent and they download.

Thanks for any help!

Problem Downloading Program Information

Mon, 04/21/2014 - 18:32
I sent our Series 3 HD Tivo to Weaknees for correction of a repeated hang of the TiVo program. They checked it out and could not find any hardware problems. When it returned, It now has a problem downloading program information after the initial 2 week download following guided setup. Program download proceeds normally until Loading, then Loading starts at 63% and dumps TiVo to Live TV without Organizing, thus not producing any usable program information. TiVo Tech support has had me upgrade my WiFi Adapter and attempt a guided setup for a different zip code to clear data and then repeat for my zip. They say because Weaknees touched the TiVo they are not allowed to troubleshoot.

Locked thread

Mon, 04/21/2014 - 18:28
I never saw a lock on a thread before but I do now on the WMC vs TiVo thread, a little padlock on the Thread, cute. :up:

And please, please nobody say anything to continuing that awful Thread as the first page answered the OP question.

MoCA bridge for Roamio basic

Mon, 04/21/2014 - 16:13
Looking at the Roamio basic (I'm using an antenna rather than cable).
Want to connect a Mini for another TV in the house. It would use the existing coax between where the Roamio will be located and where the other TV and Mini are located.

The specs for the Roamio basic says
Coax/MoCA bridge Requires adaptor

What kind/where do you get the appropriate adaptor?
It will be a dedicated coax just between the Roamio and the Mini.
It's not feasible to pull a Ethernet cable between the two and the documentation suggests that a WiFi network isn't up to the task.

Roamio Basic HDMI output resolution

Mon, 04/21/2014 - 16:04
Have an AV receiver that does HDMI 1.3a.
The TV connected to it works at 720P

On the basic Roamio, can I set the HDMI output to output at 720P? The specs I'm looking at says
which I'm hoping mean it's highest resolution

The spec also says
Video Output
480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p

Help for a friend in a Retirement Community

Mon, 04/21/2014 - 14:12
It's been a while since I've been here. I used to have multiple Tivo including 3 DirecTv Tivos that turned into boat anchors a few years ago. Now I have multiple DTV dvrs and I still miss my Tivo.

A friend just asked for my help. He lives in a townhouse which is part of a retirement community. He had Dish for a while because his community didn't offer HD on their private cable distribution network but that has recently changed. He canceled his Dish system and now has HD channels from his cable socket on the wall. Most cable channels are HD. Local networks are SD but the community folks say HD network channels are coming.

He misses the Dish dvr and his community gave him a poorly written 1 page sheet that suggests a Tivo Series 2 box available at Best Buy.. It says the Premier series promoted on the Tivo website "gets bogged down". Now, first observation is that this note is way out of date. Second is that as far as I can tell, the Series 2 boxes do not record HD. Next, the note says to connect the cable wall jack to an analog port on the Tivo. This would suggest to me that the current Roamio is not going to work.

I haven't actually looked at his current setup yet but he tells me he has an HD flat screen tv connected directly to his wall jack. He has no cable box. I am guessing this institution has installed a Directv business system designed for hotels and such. I have a call in to his "contact" to verify this.

So --- anyone here have any experience/knowledge of hospitality distribution networks? What Tivo models should I be looking at. Any help would be most appreciated.


Backup Season Pass, WishList

Mon, 04/21/2014 - 12:38
I have a new 'Basic' 4 tuner Roamio, after the HDD in my Premiere suddenly died. I also have a WD My Book external drive. I want to be able to save my Season Passes and WishList searches in case the Roamio's HDD packs it in (or the WD's). Will TiVo's Desktop Plus software for PC allow me to do this?

Tivo vulnerable to heartbleed?

Mon, 04/21/2014 - 09:48
Has anyone looked at the HTTPS web interface used for streaming and show transfers between boxes to see if it has the heart bleed bug? If so we may be able to glean some more information on how the streaming protocol works.

I will probably double post this to the more read forum.


Transfer speeds vs Premiere XL

Mon, 04/21/2014 - 09:17
Using my Premiere XL, which was new 2 years ago, it takes about 10 minutes to transfer a 2-3 GB movie to my computer. Would the Roameo be any faster?


Mon, 04/21/2014 - 08:45
I've had the VOD for a long while but use it seldom. Last evening I tried to catch up on a couple episodes of Mad Men and my receiver went to 2 channel vs. 5.1 - I had never paid any attention to that previously and it's been months since I've used the VOD. My audio settings on the TiVo are appropriate and I've no issues with broadcast 5.1. Is VOD only done in 2 channel from TiVo? I tried a different VOD this morning from a broadcast series and I've got the same 2 channel.

I don't ever recall seeing this mentioned and I would have thought many might have noticed. I thought it much easier to ask here first before any attempt at a conversation with Comcast.

New to Tivo and the forum

Mon, 04/21/2014 - 07:53

I just signed up on the forum and I'm brand new to the Tivo realm. The reason I am looking into Tivo is because I have Verizon FiOS and I found out they are changing their pricing around and I'm sick of renting their boxes.

I currently have a TIVO Premier that I use in a guest room that is not activated (Bought for $30 from Best Buy in Nov.), but is still able to tune all the channels with the FiOS cable card. I do like the interface, but paying the monthly fees seemed pointless since it's basically the same price as FiOS.

I'm looking for any advice that anyone may have on what route to take. I'm thinking of trying to find a good deal on a series 3 or Tivo HD with lifetime to see how I like it. The only thing is I've heard they are not MPEG 4 compatible so I wouldn't get a couple of channels (But it's not all that many). As of now I'm wanting to spend around $200 ish. I would love to buy a used Premier and be able to jump on the $99 lifetime promotion I've heard about, but since I have no active Tivo boxes I doubt that would happen.

Thanks in advance for your help!
