V20.4.5 power saving mode

Thu, 01/29/2015 - 17:03
I just tested the power saving mode with a watt meter (Roamio Plus), with high power saving checked I am saving about 3 watts, I do have a 2Tb drive in the unit so the wattage goes from 27 watts to 24 watts. Can someone confirm that. This is a savings of only 3 watts, it does not seem that it would matter that much.

Is my hard drive going or Tivo firmware issue?

Thu, 01/29/2015 - 16:00

Above is my firmware. My Roamio is freezing every several seconds with no volume. This doesn't just happen during viewing, but it also happens when scrolling the menu and settings. I've restarted it several times and it's still doing it.

Damn, now I'm reminded why Tivo isn't such a good deal when you account for all the hard drives you have to replace. I think I had to replace my hard drive 3 times during my series 3 ownership.

TiVo file size units

Thu, 01/29/2015 - 15:43
What are the units of file size given by the display when you press INFO while viewing a recording's description? It's marked "GB" but is GB gigabytes (10 to the 9th) or gibibytes (2 to the 20th)?

TiVo IR adapter? Nowhere to be found

Thu, 01/29/2015 - 15:13

Thu, 01/29/2015 - 15:02
I am sure this has been asked before but if I were to buy the 6tb upgrade from weeknees can I make an image of a hard drive to share with everyone? or would it just be huge? sector by sector would be 6tb I am sure but a VHD image?

Question about FiOS TV/MOCA/Tivo

Thu, 01/29/2015 - 13:22
I posted this in the dslreports forum, but am also posting here to the Tivo experts:

I've been a FiOS Internet subscriber in the Portland, OR area since about 2007. I'm not sure of the exact type of ONT on the side of my house, but I know that the WAN connection is over Ethernet. About 5 years ago (cancelled FiOS TV 3 years ago) I did have FiOS TV and the video was over coax, but the WAN was still over cat5. That's the background, now my questions......

I am about to install a new Tivo Roamio with 3 Tivo Minis along with one Frontier provided DVR. I use my own router and have no interest in using the Frontier provided router with the MOCA bridge. This is what I'm planning on doing and would like to hear feedback on this:

I am planning on creating a MOCA network using the Tivo Roamio's built-in MOCA bridge. The Tivo Roamio, Tivo Minis, Frontier DVR and Frontier ONT (video) will all connect to the MOCA network via coax. The Tivo Roamio will connect to my own router using Ethernet. The ONT WAN connection will remain connected to my router via Ethernet.

From all my reading I believe this should work. Am I overlooking anything.


Anyone ever add NAS capability to a Series 2?

Thu, 01/29/2015 - 12:56
I have a Series 2 and I want to know if anyone has a hack for it so I can use it as NAS in addition to a regular TiVo. Thanks

Suggestion: Change the default thread age cutoff

Thu, 01/29/2015 - 12:52
I am a new user to your forums. I went to the TiVo Underground subforum and there weren't any threads except for a few stickies. I discovered this is because my thread cutoff was set to the default, which in your forums does not show old threads. For example, the newest thread is almost two months old. It took me a while to figure this out. I have remedied this on my end by changing my thread cutoff to 'Show all threads'. I don't know what the solution is here but I think it would help to increase your cutoff or notify users why they can't see any threads. Thanks

V20.4.6 is now out came in last night

Thu, 01/29/2015 - 09:38
I just got the new software 20.4.6 on all my Roamios and Minis last night. the new software does have this new one pass and a new power saving mode for standby, a quick test and the unit goes to sleep, but the wake up takes about 5 or so seconds. I have to play with this One Pass more as it add a lot of extra stuff to what was the season pass

Good luck to all.

Anybody gonna pre-order this drive?

Thu, 01/29/2015 - 08:27
Surely someone here can Macgyver an image to get this to work with the Roamios:

Good start to S3. My feeling is that the main gist of the season will revolve around recruiting their daughter.

Has anyone done a transfer of Lifetime Service recently?

Thu, 01/29/2015 - 08:05
I have a Series 2 that has lifetime service. However, it died. I'm wondering if I could upgrade to a Roamio and transfer the lifetime service to it.

Has anyone done this recently? What happened? What was the cost? etc.

So, the wound seems to have moved down from the bottom of his pectoral to perhaps a bit above his kidney.

Also, now they claim that Oliver was just lucky to survive? Nothing special at all happened? WTF?

Even if the sword wound miraculously missed all organs and arteries, and even if he only actually spent a few hours on the cliff (rather than a couple days as it seemed), look how freaking far he fell! This picture shows a fall that is in no way survivable, and it has already zoomed to less than half the distance of the actual fall (if I showed it from the top of the cliff, you cannot even see his body it is so far).

New Tivo App does not allow streaming of some shows while at home

Wed, 01/28/2015 - 21:34
The new Tivo App (Blue and White) is selectively restricting the streaming of shows to the iPad.
Some shows can be watched on the iPad, others have it shaded and not available.

Connected to the same Home network as Tivo Series 4, and watching from home.

I signed out, then signed back again. Repeated the setup. No fix.

Channel Pixelation

Wed, 01/28/2015 - 19:04
I just replaced my Tivo Premiere with a Roamio Plus. Certain channels are coming in distorted and others are fine. I had the cable company come to the house and they tested the signal. They showed that with their equipment the Signal and RS Corrected/Uncorrected were just fine on the frequencies the Roamio was complaining about. Tivo has performed a RMA, but I'm curious if anyone else has had a similar issue. I am concerned that the new Tivo I receive might have a similar issue. For what it is worth I hooked the old Tivo up and the issue went away, but I really want to use the Roamio with Minis instead of multiple Premieres.
