Little League World Series

Thu, 08/07/2014 - 18:19
Today's LLWS recording scheduled for 2PM on ESPN2 is tennis. The crawler says that the game has been moved to ESPNNEWS and can be seen on WatchESPN.com.

:mad: :mad: :mad:

At 1:21 into my recording the tennis was over and they picked up Oregon vs. Alaska.

Would MoCA network + Powerline work?

Thu, 08/07/2014 - 17:07
So first off, I have a Tivo Premiere XL4 and a Mini. I live in a 2-bedroom condo in a large building, and we have a service that provides Internet to the whole building. My condo is not wired for Ethernet. I have my Internet coming into my guest room/office where it connects to my router. My Tivo is in my bedroom and my Mini is in my living room.

I understand that unless I want to spool Cat-5 thru my condo, MoCA is my best option. I did read this excellent post on explaining MoCA networks: http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb...d.php?t=501722. I don't think a MoCA adapter is an option for me since my modem is in a utility closet and my router is in my office. So I'm wondering if a MoCA/power line hybrid would work.

Could I connect my Tivo in my bedroom to the Internet via Powerline and use it to create my MoCA network? And then connect my Mini onto the MoCA network through the coax? My logic is that the streaming between the Tivo and Mini will take place over the coax, and hopefully the bandwidth the Tivo needs from the network is enough over power line.


base Roamio power calculations / tests

Thu, 08/07/2014 - 16:57
I'm starting to have suspicions about this and I'm hoping an inquisition will put it to rest definitively or find a work around that will improve the picture.

I'm ignoring the 6 tuner Roamio because it should have a completely different, beefier supply.

I'm not 100% certain how to go about everything, but it should become clearer as it gets further along.

To gather some initial information:
the included Power brick
the included HD (idle, operating, spin up)
typical (AV-GP?) HD upgrade (idle, operating, spin up)
worst case (10k rpm?) HD (idle, operating, spin up)

confirm above specs by measurement
board consumption (boot, typical, peak)

Subcomponents (hopefully they can just be aggregated):
fan consumption (low, high, spin up)
cable card?
Wifi card
RF card?

The Killing S04E04

Thu, 08/07/2014 - 15:04
Man this show knows how to end an episode.

So sad that is coming to an end. The only way out I see right now is if the other cop let's them get away with it (or maybe Holder giving himself up for Linden).

Shows are jumpy

Thu, 08/07/2014 - 14:56
I bought my Roamio Pro about 2 months ago. The programs that I have recorded in SD are jerky and jumpy what could be the problem?

Happy with Tivo!

Thu, 08/07/2014 - 14:36
Hello Tivo Haters!

It is incredible how many users just come to the forums to complaint and say bad things about a product that allows you to accomplish so many things.
I was able to be patience and jump to buy a Roamio Plus and let me tell you that I'm very happy and I guess you have to be lucky because I see so many posts about users having any type of issues and so far I have none with Comcast/Netflix/YouTube/Hulu.

So there you go, Thank you TIVO!!! :)

Transfer programs to new box

Thu, 08/07/2014 - 14:25
How do I transfer my recorded programs on my existing Tivo box to my new Tivo and still be able to use & record new programs as usual.

Would like some specifics on hooking them both up at same time and or how do I see the recorded programs on old box to transfer to new?

Also, I use Verizon FIOS so at some point I will need to transfer the card to new box.

Can some one walk me thru how to do this?

Using tivo with DirecTV....... a few questions

Thu, 08/07/2014 - 11:44
I have done some research on this matter but still have a few questions.

At my primary residence, I have a few tivo premieres and also a roamio. My cable provider is Verizon FIOS.

I am considering purchasing a Tivo for use at a different residence. This location has DirecTV service.

I am somewhat of a hoarder when it comes to videos. I like to offload content from my DVR to my computer so that I can watch things again in the future any time I want.

However, it has come to my attention that the DirecTV tivo model THR22 does NOT work with the standard tools such as kmttg or tivo to go. Is that correct?

If the answer to that is no, then is there some workaround to this? For example, would it be possible for me to record shows on a THR22 and then transfer them over onto a Premiere on the same LAN, then extract shows from the Premiere?

If that will not work, then is it possible to configure a home theater PC that can record shows from DirecTV?

If at all possible, I want the ability to get recorded content on a PC without having to mess with real time transfers(such as hauppage).

Any other thoughts, solutions, workarounds that you can offer?



Volume super low only during trailers/music

Thu, 08/07/2014 - 10:05
Ever since we got our Roamio we have this weird situation when the volume almost turns off sometimes. It is somehow related to the audio stream because it is mostly consistent.

During Americas Got Talent the volume always drops to just about nothing when a musical act comes on. This also happens sometimes when previews are played at the end of a show. For example when HBO's True Blood is on, the preview at the end of the of the show has almost no volume. As soon as those parts end, the volume goes back to normal.

It seems like Tivo detects a different type of stream or some rise in volume and alters it. Any clues on how to get rid of the volume drop?

Season Pass Download for iOS app

Thu, 08/07/2014 - 10:02
Would love if they would allow you to have a Season Pass automatically download newly recorded episodes to your iOS device when you reconnect via wi-fi. Currently need to manually kick off the downloads every time.

Verizon FiOS no longer issuing CableCARDs

Thu, 08/07/2014 - 09:57
Called today to get an MCard so I could get HBO on my HD box an they said they are no longer issuing CableCARDs. Since I turned in my single steam cards already, I did not qualify as grandfathered. Guess it does not make sense to upgrade to a Roamio Pro. Bummer.

Ray Donovan - getting better all the time!

Folks still watching?

This continues to be strong and is getting somewhat "Soprano-esque" in story lines, allegiances, secrets and, of course, sex.

Though scheduled to, TiVo NOT recording

Thu, 08/07/2014 - 09:38
Hi All-

I have run into an issue with my Roamio Premium. Even though my show is scheduled to record (with the checks next to the program) and the program being the highest priority, the show is NOT recording! I don't understand why? This is especially frustrating because as of last week, everything was working fine. This week, however, The Daily Show and Rachel Maddow are simply not recording even though I have tripled checked to make sure the shows are scheduled to record. I have 4 tuners going ... and to make sure I am not missing something, I scheduled the TiVo to record in the morning (like 9 am) when it's not doing anything at all. In the past, Rachel Maddow sometimes recorded at midnight to avoid conflicting with other programs but since I got the 4 turners up and running in the new machine, this doesn't happen much.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

The Weather Channel's "Fat Guys In The Woods"

Thu, 08/07/2014 - 09:30
Quote: For thousands of years, man lived wild. He made fire, built shelter, and hunted food with his own two hands...but as he got smarter, his waist got bigger. Now, it’s time to get guys off of the couch and into the weather on TWC's "Fat Guys in the Woods," premiering Aug. 10, 10/9c on The Weather Channel. http://www.weather.com/tv/tvshows/fa...annel-20140708

I don't know if I'll actually watch this new show. I don't do reality shows but I thought the commercial was funny.

Big Brother 8/6/2014

Thu, 08/07/2014 - 07:38
So the plan to backdoor Frankie is gone. I still wasn't positive she'd actually go through with it, but it looks like she was going to. Another alliance gone (Christine and Nicole), another on the ropes (the Detonators). I do wonder, if Derrick will look at the numbers and realize it might not be such a good idea to push to get rid of Zack. While he's a cuckoo bird, he's THEIR cuckoo bird and it might be better if Derrick pushes for Jocasta to go. This also gives him credibility in both his old and new alliance if he can push Nicole to get rid of "floater" Jocasta. The obvious reasoning will be that if Zack is still around at the end, he wouldn't get enough votes to win and Jocasta has a lot of "friends" in the house and she might garner a sympathy vote or two.

Caleb and Victoria....now that was really funny. It was interesting that by the end of the 48 hours, Victoria had very few leaves left on the bottom half of her costume. :)

Specific Steps for Comcast On Demand?

Thu, 08/07/2014 - 00:36
Does the Mini have a special setup to access the on demand or does Comcast need to have a specific code for the Mini to access on demand? On Demand seems to work fine on the Pro and Plus, the Mini pulls its stuff from the Pro. However, when I try to access On Demand from the Mini, I can't. So I'm here hoping to find out what specific steps I need to take or make sure I have to get it working. =)

The Killing S04E03

Pretty sad to Holder losing it. Linden seems to be making a lot of basic mistakes.

Another strong episode.

Is this a cosmetic defect on the front panel?

Wed, 08/06/2014 - 21:13
I got my Roamio Plus almost two months ago. Today, I noticed this slant vertical "line" (picture attached) on the front right of the unit. I don't remember it being there before. I thought it may be a scratch on the outside but the surface is smooth. Is it on anyone else's unit? :confused:

Pioneer DVR and HD Channels

Wed, 08/06/2014 - 20:23
Does the Pioneer Elite DVR-57H DVD receive and record HD channels and video. I was originally looking at DVRs for simply copy VHS to Digital. When I came across the DVR-810 in a forum it sounded awesome. It had a DVD burner, and a tuner and the TiVo lifetime basic service. Later I found out the tuner did not receive HD channels and it did not record in HD. I don't know if this is a factor when recording VHS tapes but it is with over the air or cable HD. I have heard really good things about the Pioneers so I was wondering which other ones come with the TiVO service and HD support.
Also on the TiVo lifetime, is that built into all of the DVR-57H and DVR-810s or was that an option.

Hi. I am looking to buy the roamio plus, mini and life time subscriptions. Does TiVo have any specials to bundle or save money? Thanks
