Cross-site scripting warnings?

Mon, 02/23/2015 - 11:06
I've been seeing a couple of warnings from Firefox lately. I just had to re-install it so I don't have NoScript on, but plain old Firefox is telling me that "Firefox prevented this page from automatically redirecting to another page."

I generally read the forum by selecting "New posts" and then opening a new tab for each thread I want to read. I'm getting the warning on about half the therads. I can reinstall NoScript and post more specific stuff from the console if that would be useful.

OTA and Raw Cable on Same Line

Mon, 02/23/2015 - 10:58
I don't think this is possible with the Roamio, but I thought I would ask. I have the Roamio basic with OTA or Cable option. I cancelled my cable this weekend, but I do see I still get quite a few SD channels coming in from my internet cable line. Of course, I don't get the local HD channels, which I do need. So, is it possible to use a filter like the LMP-450 for the cable line to have both the raw cable and OTA line going in from a splitter? I imagine my main issue even if this was possible would be the fact that I can not run a setup for both on the Tivo, but I thought I would just throw this out there.

Periodically losing Comcast 85MHz channels

Mon, 02/23/2015 - 10:23
Comcast Atlanta - I am periodically losing 4 HD channels, all 4 are 1t 85MHz. Is there anything peculiar about that frequency? No real idea how long this has been going on but I first noticed it last Thursday as it lost the signal on HSTRYHD(852) a few minutes in to the first episode of the new season of "Vikings" . I checked all of my HD capable TiVos and had no signal on all of them. I set up to record 2 different later showings on both the TiVo that had tried to record it initially and another TiVo on a different outlet. and both of them successfully recorded the episode.

Last night, the channels were there. Today they are gone.

There's a tech coming by between 1&3 today but I doubt if he'll be able to do anything.

Double Spotify's

Mon, 02/23/2015 - 08:49
On my Mini, under "Music & Photos" I have two Spotify apps listed. The icons are slightly different. The first one works fine. The second one hangs when I try to log into it. What's up with that?

My Roamio (recently updated) shows one Spotify. Does anyone else's Mini show two Spotify apps? Will the next update fix it?

The Walking Dead 2/22/15 S05E11

Rick was not playing Will it Blend.

Realy? You won't eat the applesauce because of a traumatic childhood experience? I think it may be because Rick busted your jaw.

Why were there no people in the pictures?

Is tonight Friday?

TWC and mini

Mon, 02/23/2015 - 00:26
I have TWC, which copy protects everything but broadcast channels. I cannot transfer shows between Tivos because of this. If I buy a mini and connect it to my Roamio Plus, what happens? Can I stream those copy protected shows?

One Pass didn't record - season pass does

Mon, 02/23/2015 - 00:07
I had a season pass on my roamio pro for chicago's best on WGN (a restaurant show). The roamio updated and now it's a one pass. The show starts 10
Pm tonite didn't record and nothing in history about. I went to one pass manager and it showed no shows scheduled to record. I decided to delete the pass and redo it. Again for next Sunday no show is scheduled. It did find a repeat to record on sat afternoon.

I then went to my premiere which has not been updated yet. It never had this show as a season pass before and I created one. It scheduled to record next Sunday's show fine.

I got to believe all these new options are screwing 1 pass up. I don't do streaming so I set it to recordings only. Not sure why I need a start from year in order to tell it to record repeats. It was fine setting up season pass
Es the old way.

I viewed S1 E1&2 tonight.

Quirky, funny, oddly compelling.

Is the DirecTV HD TiVO worth it?

Sun, 02/22/2015 - 23:30
I am currently with Comcast and have several Premieres and a Mini. I am considering switching to DirecTV. I know they had a SD TiVo unit a while back, the two broke up their relationship and then got back together for an HD TiVO model a few years ago.

Is this newer HD TiVo for DirecTV worth it? From what I can tell, it doesn't really seem to do as much as the Premieres and/or even Series 3s? I think I have seen some posts about how people were excited it was coming, took forever to arrive and then when it did, it was pretty crappy compared to new technology (by both TiVO and DirecTV).

Any thoughts?

Issue with TA - Bug or Feature?

Sun, 02/22/2015 - 23:27
Some background: I have TWC in Cincinnati. I have a basic Roamio. The Roamio has a cable card and is connected to a tuning adapter via USB. My cable signal runs into a splitter. The splitter provides a signal to the Roamio and the TA.

About a week ago, the Roamio was recording two programs on channels that do not require the TA. I tuned to the Big Ten channel, which requires the TA, on the third tuner. I was met with a "Channel not available" error. So I unplugged the power cord from the TA, counted to five, and plugged it back in. This caused a "No tuning adapter" standard def screen to appear, and the Roamio stopped recording on the two channels that don't require the TA.

So I clicked "OK" on the TA error screen and quickly switched to the first and second tuners, which had been recording, and pressed the record button to get them recording again. At the same time the green light on the TA was blinking indicating that it was rebooting. About two minutes later, the green light went solid on the TA and a standard def screen appeared say "Tuning adapter connected." At this time, the Roamio again stopped recording on the two channels that don't require the TA. WTF!

The result of all this was that I had 20 minutes of recordings before I power-cycled the Roamio. 2 minutes of recordings while the TA rebooted. And 37 minutes of recordings after the TA completed its reboot.

So why on earth would Tivo write code that quits recording channels simply because communication to the TA is lost? Surely the Tivo can tell if a video signal is still present on tuners that are recording channels that don't require the TA. The two minutes of program that was recorded while the TA rebooted, and the Roamio could not communicate with it, proves that there was signal on those channels. And more importantly, why would Tivo write code that stops recording on channels simply because communication to the TA is restored.

I can think of no reason why the Tivo should quit recording on channels that do not require the TA, so I consider this a bug. What do you think? Should I report it to Tivo as a bug?

Votre for having Power Save = Off, still buffer when in standby

Sun, 02/22/2015 - 22:00
Please reply to this thread if you would like the Power Save = Off setting still buffer when in standby like it did before the most recent update.

I have a common usage behavior of powering up the TiVo and backing up the last 30mins of what ever show is playing and I can as necessary skip and catchup with real time.

anyone try x2 BT slides on one tivo?

Sun, 02/22/2015 - 20:51
Has anyone got x2 BT Slide remotes to work on the same premier TiVo? If so did it take both usb Bluetooth dongles or were both able ro connect via Bluetooth using the same dongle?

Issue expanding my TiVo HD drive

Sun, 02/22/2015 - 20:24
In June, I had a TiVo HD with a drive that went south on me, so I used a backup .tbk I saved and put it on a 1.5tb hard drive I had. I used MFSLive, copied the 500mb image, put it in the TiVo and called it a day. Soon after, I noticed it was only using a small portion of storage and giving me only 21 HD recording hours. I procrastinated in fixing it.

Well, procrastination time is over and I took that thing out to see if I could expand it somehow. I tried WinMFS and it didn't see the drive at all (and no, I didn't initialize the disk in Windows 8.1). I made a USB boot of MFSLive and I could see the drive but after reading the forums there I couldn't really figure out what to do to expand it.

Then, I thought maybe the 1.5tb is causing issues, so I put in a 1tb hard drive in Windows 8.1 (uninitialized), fired up WinMFS, and it didn't see that drive either. I'm at a loss as to why this is happening, so hopefully someone has some suggestions. I'm willing to switch to the 1tb drive if the 1.2tb barrier will give me issues expanding the 1.5tb drive. I'm not overly concerned with keeping the existing few recordings.

My motherboard is an ASUS P8Z68V-Pro motherboard and I was plugging into an internal SATA port.

I have to plug this back in to record tonight's shows but I'm all ears.

Pausing of live TV on Roamio Pro broken since last update

Sun, 02/22/2015 - 19:35
Ever since I got the OnePass update for my Roamio Pro I cannot successfully pause live video. If I hit pause during a live program the TiVo unpauses itself within a short time. Sometimes immediately, other times 30 seconds or more later. Has anyone else experienced this? Is there a fix?

Roamio update issues?

Sun, 02/22/2015 - 18:08
Roamio Pro has been working flawlessly for over a year. Now since update, old problems seem to have resurfaced. The audio going to the LOUD digital garbage every now and then (which was fixed a year ago)... losing all menu control except live TV in the upper right preview window; remote unresponsive. I checked here expecting to see other people with the same issues, but am surprised to not see much about it... I guess I am just lucky?

rf remote

Sun, 02/22/2015 - 17:31
Is it possible to pair two RF remotes with the same Tivo at the same time?

Will you pay for AT&T gigapower privacy?

Sun, 02/22/2015 - 17:25
So AT&T is going to have a privacy tier and a non-privacy tier for Gigapower speeds.


Would you pay for it and what do people think?

There was an error while attempting to retrieve data from the selected DVR

Sun, 02/22/2015 - 15:54
I'm using TivoDesktop and have used it successfully for a number of years. I've been using it just fine with my Roamio Pro since 2013. This weekend, I started getting the error message "There was an error while attempting to retrieve data from the selected DVR. The system cannot find the file specified." TivoDesktop can see the Roamio Plus, and the error comes after it counts down through the 749 recordings. The Roamio Plus can see and access the recordings on my computer through TivoDesktop. I have TivoDesktop running on other computers, with the same result. I have a premiere and an elite also, and TivoDesktop continues to be able to access those. I've had 20.4.6 on the Roamio for a couple of weeks, so no immediate impact from that. I've reinstalled Tivo Desktop, rebooted everything, changed the Roamio's name, and deauthorized and reauthorized on the website. I can access the shows by using https and the TiVo ip address. Any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks

Pictures & Music on TIVO ROAMIO from External Drive

Sun, 02/22/2015 - 14:48
All i want to do is access/play my personal music and view my personal pictures thru the TIVO Roamio if possible.

I have a TIVO Roamio. Apple TV. Apple Time Capsule. Apple Airport. External Drive. Denon AVR. Mac Mini. And/or will buy whatever is needed to make this "just work".

Obviously, i don't want to use all devices, so what is the absolute simplest way to play my personal music and view my pictures? Can i connect an external HD or plug in a network cable?

Any advice would be appreciated
