Believe - 13th episode (unaired)

Thu, 07/10/2014 - 22:36
FYI there's a 13th episode of the series that isn't being shown in the US that can be found online -- it aired in New Zealand.

It is apparently one originally intended to run in the middle/towards the end of the season, but not as the last, since #12 was a finale.

Romio pairing with TWC

Thu, 07/10/2014 - 22:19
Replaced my Tivo Premiere with a Romio and all worked well for several months. Then box started acting up by not coming on with tv. Had to restart once a week. Then cable card adaptor started losing channels. (Calls to TWC) Decided to replace the Romio. Had to pay $50 because I passed the warranty date. Received the new one but I couldn't get the cable card to pair. Replaced cable card 3 times and spent hours on phone with TWC. Then hours on phone with TIVO. Finally returned new Romio and hooked old one back up because I knew it had worked with the TWC cable card. HOWEVER, now it will not pair. Time Warner says its a Romio issue. Tivo says its a TWC problem. Really sucks for us. We really like tiro but I'm guessing well be forced to give it up and go back to the crummy TWC cable box.

Does extended warrenty apply to second owner?

Thu, 07/10/2014 - 20:33
If I have a TiVo with an extended warranty and I sell it, does the buyer/new owner have that warranty coverage?

Netflix has no graphics

Thu, 07/10/2014 - 19:54
For the last few days the Netflix app on my Premiere has been missing all of the cover photos. I can scroll around to different shows and watch them fine, but it is a bit difficult to find them when everything is black except for the textual description of the currently selected show. Anyone else seen this before?

Really getting PO'ed at Tivo

Thu, 07/10/2014 - 19:24
Got the 4.2 Summer Update and after restart stuck on Powering Up screen.
Called Tivo and had to use my extended warranty to get the box replaced.
Got the new box today and went to put my season passes back on it from season pass manager and The dead Tivo wasn't listed. Called tech support
and they informed me when a RMA is issued, they de-active the box which kills the season passes online. This is really getting old Tivo. Was in the last batch of people where the software kept getting downgraded and now this.

For fans of Pawn Stars, Pawnography starts tonight on History Channel

Thu, 07/10/2014 - 17:42

The trio’s new show features the core “Pawn Stars” cast minus Harrison’s dad, a.k.a. “The Old Man.” It pits contestants up against the reality stars and gives them a chance to win items from Harrison’s personal prized collection from the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop.

“It’s general trivia questions, most are historical,” he explained. “The tag line is ‘it’s the only game show where we don’t want you to win.’

Roamio Plus Remote lost volume/mute capability

Thu, 07/10/2014 - 13:59
5 month-old Roamio Plus, 2 year-old Vizio TV (M470VSE), remote cleaned twice with isopropanol only, no obstructions to IR sensors on TV, surge protected power supply (exterior ground wired to home service panel), Vizio remote still works fine
Our Roamio remote worked fine for 4 months.
Then its Volume up/down toggle started to fail intermittently
followed by intermittent function of Mute button.
Now neither functions at all. All other buttons function perfectly.
What I've tried:
1st- Software reset of remote TV code (tried all three codes for Vizio), followed menu commands explicitly twice (6 attempts). Remote's red LED lit up promptly (as expected) as I followed instructions. Found two of three codes will allow power button, channel toggle and numerical buttons to work on Vizio. However, neither of these two codes allowed volume or mute control.
2nd- Removed & reinstalled batteries, repeated code reset... still no volume/mute operation.
3rd-Software reset of remote to "default settings" by following directions involving amber LED and "thumbs down" button.
4th- Repeated 2nd (see above)
5th- Cycled power (10 second interrupt) on both Roamio and Vizio
6th- Repeated 1st (see above)
Still no love... how is this possible? It can't be the Vizio, as its remote still controls the mute and volume.
Must I purchase a new Roamio remote? And... why should I have to? It should be covered under warranty. I'm certain sludge isn't obstructing buttons or IR transmission. Any thoughts on how I should proceed, or am I doomed to keeping two remotes on the table?

Tivo - Thanks for the update!

Thu, 07/10/2014 - 12:41
Have the summer update on our Roamio, 2 Premieres and a mini. All made it through the upgrade without a whimper. Very nice to have the exact same look and feel on all of them now. Seems much more like an integrated system. Even my wife noticed how much snappier the Premiere in the kitchen was and that it looked just like the Roamio now.

I also do a good bit of behind the scenes stuff with kmttg and pytivo and no troubles there either with the updates on all the devices. Nice speed bump in network transfer speeds too.

So THANKS Tivo. One of the smoothest updates in recent history. Pretty impressive considering all 4 of our units updated the same day and all work great on the new software.

Look forward to seeing what other features are hidden in this update that are not turned on yet...

The Divide - Original Series on WE

I love my Rokus. I clicked on the ad for this series and they showed enough (at least 40 minutes) of the 2 hour premiere to hook me for a SP.

Roamio wireless help

Thu, 07/10/2014 - 08:34
I have a base model Roamio, and a mini, connected by an Ethernet cable to the the next room , through the wall.

I'm moving, and the new place tv spot will be like 30 feet away, and no clean way to run a cord.

The Roamio is easy enough to put next to my router, but I would like to connect the Mini wireless to the Roamio.

Can I use the wireless n adapter, what will I need to make it work, Thanks

Help me choose an Ebay cablecard

Thu, 07/10/2014 - 06:42
I know people here have had success with Motorola CCs from Ebay. The thing is my cable company uses NDS cards. In a year of poking around Ebay from time to time I have never seen an NDS card for sale. Does anyone know if a Cisco or Sci Atl brand card is compatible with an NDS head end?

Aereo's a cable company now

Thu, 07/10/2014 - 02:05
Well, sort of.

Basically what it boils down to is "we thought we weren't one but SCOTUS says we are, so that means we can pay the broadcasters like cable does and retransmit their signal to our subscribers".

The broadcasters are having a cow.



TivoMargret: Stop breaking my Tivos!

Thu, 07/10/2014 - 00:59

Your summer update is totally preventing my Mini from seeing its host Roamio. When is your next fix planned? Fall? Winter?

Do I get a service and equipment refund until Tivo figures out what they've broken this time?

Extant "Re-Entry" 07/09/14 (spoilers)

Wed, 07/09/2014 - 22:05

Is this a mini-series?

What's Halle Berry doing on TV anyways?

Upgrade Hard Drive

Wed, 07/09/2014 - 21:13
I have the Roamio Plus. The drive is around 80% full. I'm thinking of replacing the drive with a 4TB drive. What are my options for the shows on the Tivo? Can I copy them to a computer and transfer them to the new drive?

Will there ever be a better OTA Roamio?

Wed, 07/09/2014 - 19:57
Just read that nearly one in five US households no longer subscribes to satellite or cable TV, which as of April totals 7.6 million.

We cut the cord in 2011, and thanks to Tivo we have had very few regrets with the few dozen OTA channels we now receive. However we tend to be early adopters of most technology, the only glaring exception being our three year old Premiere.

The Roamio is faster, has twice the tuners, and seems to be every bit worth the price—EXCEPT for the lack of streaming capability. I cannot imagine paying a penny for a DVR that doesn't have streaming capabilities, and I don't see the advantage to getting a stripped down Roamio over adding a stream to our antique premiere.

Is there any chance that the better Roamios will one day be offered with an adapter for OTA reception? Surely some current Roamio owners will eventually want to cut the cord, but would be forced to downgrade to the basic model.

I can't be the only one who is just waiting to give Tivo money whenever they get their act together and add OTA capabilities to the premium models. So am I crazy to hold my breath waiting for a Roamio refresh?

Amazing Race Canada

Wed, 07/09/2014 - 19:47
For those who are having Amazing Race withdrawals and are in Canada or are able to watch shows through magical means, the second season of the Amazing Race Canada debuted last night. Unlike most other international versions where the racers get to go to different countries, in the Canadian version they are racing entirely in Canada. While that is somewhat lame and they don't have Phil, it's still Amazing Race and worth a watch during the summer.

I'm Back

Wed, 07/09/2014 - 16:27
After several years away I just purchased a Roamio basic. My last Tivo was a series 2. Wondering if there are any features that don't get mentioned (I've done quite a bit of research) that I might overlook? It will be here tomorrow. Can you tell I'm excited?:)
