The Biggest Loser: Glory Days - Season Thread *SPOILERS*

Fri, 09/12/2014 - 08:18
I think it should be interesting to see all these former athletes get fit again!

I am a big fan of that new Blue trainer. :)

Can a Mini act as Network Adapter when using Moca?

Fri, 09/12/2014 - 01:18
If I use Moca on a mini, can i hook up a device to the ethernet port of the mini and get network access, like a network bridge of some sort?

If not, do you think this feature could be requested? I mean the hardware is there to support this, isn't it?

Add a Roamio or a Mini?

Thu, 09/11/2014 - 16:46
I'm having my basement finished and I currently have a TiVoHD upstairs, plus a series 2 TiVo. The basement will need another TiVo. I'm trying to decide between replacing the TiVoHD with a Roamio and buying a Mini for the basement or simply adding a Roamio in the basement. What is the video quality of the Mini? Is there any discernible difference as compared to a Roamio? I think if it is the same I might as well go with the Mini since it's cheaper both in equipment prices and in ongoing Comcast cablecard charges.

Do I tell Both Premieres about my MINI?

Thu, 09/11/2014 - 15:15
Hello ALL:

I am not sure yet what I need to do as I have not even opened my Mini yet, but I did activate it for FREE. However, I had heard that before I connect it, I need to tell my Premiere to let a device take a tuner...or something like that. I wonder, however, if I can tell BOTH my Premiere 4 tuner and Premiere XL 4 tuner Unit(s) to do this? Then, will the MIMI allow me to select which Tivo I want to get one of its tuners?

TIVO and something else SNR

Thu, 09/11/2014 - 14:44
Anyone out there have a TIVO and another type of box that they can compair SNR levels with?

What I am looking for is my TIVO and the Comcast box have about SNR on some channels that are about 5 numbers apart. TIVO has 30 cable box has 36. just trying to see if this is normal.

Currently using Comcast.

Loss Of Sound When I Access TIVO Central

Thu, 09/11/2014 - 13:07
Sorta Newbie here, Returning to TIVO after 15 of Comcast DVR. Anyway. Every time I click the TIVO button to go into TIVO Central, the sound mutes for a second. Is this normal, and if not, how do I fix it?

Inside the NFL anyone

Thu, 09/11/2014 - 12:11
Does anyone (but me and my kids) watch this? What do you think of the almost completely new cast? Although I kind of despise Chris as a person, he is really good at this type of show and was a great foil for Phil. I don't see Boomer filling that roll well at all. Also, in the second episode did Boomer drink too much coffee/red bull/meth? The chest thumps must have really pissed of the sound guy! Ed Reed is a bit too laid back to fill the Warren Sapp "role". Gumble is fine, but seems much older and more tired compared to James Brown (who I'm guessing didn't leave on good terms since unlike Chris he got no sendoff), probably more appearance than delivery. The surprise for me is how much I like Brandon Marshall (I have him in FF, so I like him fine there too). He's got a really bright future once his playing days are done!

Also, what's with the overly dark set with the two giant piles of rocks wrapped in chicken wire??

Share shows between two premieres, but only one with service?

Thu, 09/11/2014 - 11:52
I have a Premiere (2 tuner) with lifetime. I have another Premiere with no service, and I don't want to get service for it.

Can I set up the non-service Premiere and still transfer/watch shows between them?


3 column view- show appearing in both "Kids" and "TV" lists

Thu, 09/11/2014 - 09:34
"Daniel Tigers Neighborhood" appears in my "kids" category of the 3 column view.

The "TV shows" category is supposed to exclude all kids shows - and it does, for the most part. but there are a few "Daniel Tigers Neighborhood" in there. it's clearly not a big deal but just wondering why that might be, and if possible how to fix.

New update 20.4.4 installed no Home shopping app

Thu, 09/11/2014 - 08:39
I just got the new update this morning on my new Roamio, and there is no Home Shopping Network in the App section. Has anyone else had this problem?

Spotify Issues after Fall Update

Thu, 09/11/2014 - 08:21
Not seeing anything from other posters, so I assume it's just me. Post-fall update, I have a few issues.

1. I still have the old Spotify app on my Roamio. However, I can't get anything to stream.
2. The Spotify app link in the Music section has disappeared from all of my Mini's
3. Pandora is just cycling through songs without every playing anything on the Roamio.

Anyone ever experienced this, or do you think this is isolated to this particular update?

Big Brother 16 - 9/10/14 Rewind

Thu, 09/11/2014 - 08:14
Well, that was interesting. Not really. It's bad when you really can't remember anything memorable happening on the show the night before. Other than the Rewind.

I don't really like this aspect of the game. Maybe earlier but not now. My biggest fear is Frankie will win HOH again and this time I think he will go after Derrick and Cody more so than Victoria. But, in reality, that's the best move.

Why does the Mini literature push MoCA?

Thu, 09/11/2014 - 07:24
Looking at the "Start Here" flyer, I find this quite bizarre:

"... via a MoCA network (recommended) or an Ethernet network."

and "MoCA network (recommended)" appears twice more on the same page. Now, I understand that a MoCA option is a great boon to people -- and I understand there are many -- whose houses are already wired with multiple TV drops, but without Ethernet. But, if Ethernet is available, when and how would MoCA ever be preferable? That's a rhetorical question, since to me, the answer is "never"; but I assume there was some (misguided?) thought behind the flyer, and I'm curious to know what it was.

V58 Error

Thu, 09/11/2014 - 06:48
I have a Roamio Plus and a couple of minis. I'm getting V58 errors. Sometimes the errors goes away when I switch back and forth to the same channel and sometimes the channel is always a V58 error until I restart the Roamio Plus. The minis see the same issue until I restart the Roamio Plus.

I have replaced the Comcast cable card in the Roamio 4 times and get the same results. I am using a MoCA network with a MoCa point of entry filter from Tivo, all my splitters are 2Ghz, and my SNR level is good, about 34 to 35db with signal strength about 90 - 94%.

This is an annoying problem. How do I correct it other than restarting the Tivo Roamio a couple of times a day?

any idea what to do with extra premier remotes?

Wed, 09/10/2014 - 23:30
I must have at least 6 brand new premier remotes im certain ill never use. 2 more now that came with my minis i dont intend on using. Guess as a free craigs list add. I think those adds make you refresh them every week though

quick hide progress bar wont work with mini?

Wed, 09/10/2014 - 21:37
with other tivos there's a code you can enter from my showcase videos to enable the quick hide progress bar, but with mini there are no show cases. Is there no other way to do this with mini?

Horrendous new ads

That black bar that keeps popping up at the bottom of the screen today, at least on my iPad... no matter how many times I close it. It needs to die.
