Just got an email with that offer. I guess it is the basic, 4-tuner model. Since I'm OTA, that would be all I can do (there were offers for the other two models, too).
I checked in a few weeks ago and folks were talking about whether LIFETIME would be offered. But I really don't know much about this "new" Roamio device.
Opinions are most welcome.
Oh, I see I could "throw" in a tivo mini for another $150 for watching in another room. I know nothing about any of these services.
And I apologize if there are already threads on this offer.
Thanks in advance.
(edited to add: I think maybe the discussion was about the new whatever and lifetime??? Hey, I have an OLD birthday about a week ago and the gray matter is .....)
I have a hearing loss and use the closed captions (CC) feature all the time on my TiVo Premiere. The CCs for most shows come through fine. I've noticed with at least two new programs on CBS that the captions come through scrambled, if at all. When watching Scorpion and NCIS: New Orleans, CCs are intermittent, and when they do appear, they mostly say "CBSCBSCBSCBS" or some variation thereof. I contacted the engineer at the TV station the shows came from; he says it's a problem at the TiVo or Charter Cable level, as the CCs came through fine on his home set.
This problem does not appear on returning CBS programs, or on any other channel or program. Can anyone think of a reason why the problem would be isolated to these programs, and how to fix it?
Lately I've noticed incorrect channel numbers when accessing "Upcoming" for shows. For example, right now I'm looking up "Transporter: The Series" and I get four showings listed: episodes 1 and 5 on Sat 10/18 8:00 PM and 9:00 PM, and again at 10:00 and 11:PM. However, the first two showings say they're on "781 TNTHD" and the second two on "1203 TNTHD". The correct channel is 1203; there is no 781 in my line-up.
Starting a little bit ago, on all channels, the Zoom/Full/Panel has ceased working. It looks to be on Panel (I always keep it set to Zoom, and in the TiVo settings, it shows as being set to Zoom) but there are black borders around a square picture, which I believe is Panel mode.
I've changed to several different channels with different programming and they are all the same. Hitting the button on the remote to switch modes does nothing.
Anyone else experiencing this?
I have a Roamio Plus and recently the unit has started to spontaneously reboot. The rebooting process takes on average 30 min. When the TiVo video finally plays, it stutters. Once in the main menu, trying to watch TV usually doesn't work, and playing recorded shows is iffy at best, usually with a lot of stuttering.
I'm guessing this is my HD failing.
I talked to TiVo tech support and they want to RMA the unit. I am pretty computer savvy, so I have no problem fixing the system if it's just the Hd. Just wondering if I'm better off to do that (replace HD myself) or let them send me a whole new (refurb) unit?
Do HD's put into Roamios still need to be prepped?
Also, is there any way to save my existing recordings?
Surprised nobody's started a thread on this considering how many people seemed to like the Pilot.
This episode was pretty funny, there were several LOL moments for me. It's a little cheesy, but cute and clever.
"it's what Jamie Fox and men of my generation refer to as a "booty call""
"aww, you're using facebook on a desktop like it's 2011"
"see, it hurts when a girl doesn't laugh at your jokes"
those cracked me up! :D
For a show i had ZERO desire to watch when first hearing about it, i'm glad i saw a preview and then decided to catch the pilot. I'm liking it!
Having a problem with my Tivo/cable and not sure what to try next.
I have Comcast with 3 Tivos:
- Tivo Roamio (with MoCA to feed Mini)
- Tivo Premier (2 tuner)
- Tivo Mini (connected via MoCA from Roamio)
On the Premier, the signal on many channels started pixelating several days ago and now its to the point that HD channels are virtually unwatchable. SD channels are okay, but not perfect by any means. I checked signal strength on the Premier channels and they are all around 50% (the signal on these same channels at the Roamio is 98%+ so not a problem with the signal coming into the house). I can view previously recorded shows with no problems.
The Premier and the Roamio are both fed by the same splitter. I changed the splitter with no improvement.
This morning the Mini is not working. Thru all of this the Roamio is still fine.
The problems all seem to have started after a recent Tivo update (but could also be unrelated to the update). Any thoughts on what to do next? I have already restarted the Premier and Mini each twice. Thanks for the help.

I missed out on the $80-$90 Tivo Mini deals from Frys and Radio Shack a few weeks ago, but now that I know it does in fact work with the Roamio OTA we'll hopefully be upgrading to soon, I have been trying to find any kind of deal.
Just came across this site, but I've never heard of them and $83 for a new Tivo Mini almost sounds too good to be true.

Is it worth the gamble to place an order?
I have a 3 year old premiere and a new Samsung tv that hooks up to the web. Never used that feature until this week. hooked up Netflix and watched and HD movie. Then saw there were different apps on the tv and just played around for a while. Found a game and played that a bit. Then I went back to tivo to watch some tv and I lost a ton of programs. I rarely go below 80% so when I saw 50% I was dismayed.
The programs werent in the recycle bin either. and no new shows to delete 30% of my space were set to record. So is it just coincidence that 30% of my tivo was wiped at the exact moment I hooked up the tv to the internet? Im pretty sure thats not really possible but then what other explanation is there. I specifically remember at least 10 of the shows that were deleted, one was 7 eps of the same one.
there is one possibility I can think of . I had a 2 hour movie on my laptop that I was sending to the tivo but stopped it midway, or so i thought. But the blue light was still on. however I was well under 90% on my tivo so no 2 hour movie should have deleted 30% of my drive space. to kill the blue light i had to go to the show and delete it.
I didn't like how Black Canary was disposed so quickly and abruptly. Hopefully, she's only comicbook-dead, and not really dead.
Next week's episode is titled "Sara".
I was hoping for a new villain season arc, but the new Count was killed in the end.
So much for the "Olicity" shippers. The angst will continue for a few more years. In the meantime, Superman Returns Atom new CEO is being setup as Felicity's new love interest. I can see her taking the new job, perhaps as the CTO?

First episode aired on DirecTV last night.
I have a Roamio Plus and Im using it with my iPhone via OOH Streaming.
About once every 7-10 days, the App is requiring me to re pair my device with the Roamio. (i.e. Go thru the Setup process of setting up OOH while connected to my home network). It always happens when Im away from my home, and therefore Im not able to stream until I return home and re-setup the OOH by going to the Settings. (Apparently it wont allow OOH Setup for the first time when youre away from your home network).
Any idea what might be causing this, or what I may be doing that causing it to break the pairing process?
How many of these tv shows do you remember?
14 Forgotten TV Superheroes
I remember watching:
Birds Of Prey
I think Mr. Terrific is the only one I would remember without being prompted by this column and that's only because I've always remembered the name Stanley Beamish for some reason.
Because the app can't actually stream live, but insists on starting a recording so it can stream that, I just noticed this watching extra inning baseball:
The app just stops suddenly and asks if I want to delete the program I just recorded, but the dadgum game is still on. So now I have to dig up the guide and tell it to stream the next program in the schedule.
Couldn't it be bright enough to just keep recording and streaming till I actually exit the app or change channels?
I know there are several versions of pytivo....but I can't get any of them to work. They load, but won't find my roamio on the same network. Is there a version that works with Mavericks?
Is it possible to mirror the tivo app to an Apple TV when I'm outside of my home network? I have a roamio and several minis. Alternatively, is it possible to use a mini via a VPN now, while outside my home network? Thanks for any feedback.
I am moving to an area seviced by Comcast and am tired of getting killed with equipment rental fees. I've done a bit of investigation on Tivo but I have a few questions before I plunk down the cash. I currently use a Roku in my set up and would love if my Tivo could replace some key features so I don't need to use the Roku. I heavily use the Plex app for streaming from my PC. I know Tivo does not have Plex but is there any other way to stream H264 files from my PC through the MOCA network? Also, my two girls are obsessed with Sporut and the Disney Channel apps on the Roku, does Tivo have any of these or similar streaming apps for kids?
Also, I've heard that Tivo allows you to edit your channels so you never need to scroll past channels you don't subscribe to or so you can eliminate SD channels from showing up in your personal line up. Is this true? And might I also be able to renumber or reorder the channels to something that that makes more sense to me...like grouping all of the kids channels or having my more frequently watched channels come up first? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide - Steve
After having no luck getting streaming to work on the Kindle Fire HD, but great success streaming to my HTC One, I thought I would pick up this little tool to use on an upcoming trip: Micro USB to HDMI MHL Adapter. It actually works really well, with everything but
the TiVo app. Disappointing, but worth a shot.
Any bets on whether this is cable labs requirement or just to keep me from using my phone to replace a Mini? (With the recent sale on Minis and "free" lifetime, the Mini is way too convenient to replace with the app.)
