Series 3 auto reset

Mon, 01/05/2015 - 18:24
It happens at least once a day. It as if I briefly unplugged the unit. And it takes a good 10 minutes to cycle up. I changed the hard drive, but no improvement, any suggestions?

Replacing Tico that created MoCa network

Mon, 01/05/2015 - 16:34
I have an existing Premier XL (dual tuner) that I used to create a MoCa network. There are no other devices using this MoCa network. I will be replacing this unit with a Romio Plus and will be adding 2 Minis that will connect via MoCa. The Premier will not be used going forward, but I do want to transfer my recordings, etc. to the Romio. Several questions:
  • As I want to transfer the existing recordings from the Premier to the Romio, should I add the new Romio and Minis to the "existing" MoCa network? Or should I create a new network from the Romio?
  • When I shut down the Premier (which "created" the network), does the MoCa network still exist?

The Good Wife - Hail Mary **SPOILERS**

Mon, 01/05/2015 - 13:16
Now this is a GREAT show!!! I'm glad they put the Cary-may-go-to-jail plot to bed. It was getting kind of tedious. I have a prediction but it involves a casting change so I'll spoiler it.

Spoiler: I'm pretty sure I read that Kalinda will not be back next year so I'll bet that she gets in trouble for faking that e-mail being read or for something she may have to do for Lamond (or doesn't do!) and she has to disappear and thus her exit from the show. I really like her character and will miss her!!


Mini & Roamio DTA illustrated

Mon, 01/05/2015 - 13:02
I've gotten multiple answers concerning the behavior of the mini, tuner allocation, season passes and tuner release by the mini from Tivo. Quite frankly, virtually ALL of what Tivo CSRs have stated has turned out to be totally inaccurate. In order to try and help others understand this in advance, to figure out what may and what may not work for their particular needs, I've decided to run tests. Here they are, so people should be able to predict reliably what "does" happen normally.

Tivo Roamio Pro, SW version 20.4.5c-USA-6-840
Tivo Mini, SW version 20.4.5c-01-6-A92

FIRST TEST No season passes, all 6 programs scheduled to start at the same time.

Roamio Pro set to record 6 non-season pass programs at 1pm.

Mini active, pressed "Live TV" at 12:45pm

No other buttons pressed on any remote after 12:45pm.

No conflicts reported in "To Do" list (checked at 12:45pm).

At 12:59:30, screen attached to mini popped up an alert that said that to record a show on the Roamio, I needed to either stop watching live TV and record the program, or cancel/miss recording the program. It did not specify which of the 6 programs would not record.

After taking no action, at 1pm the mini switched to Tivo Central. All 6 programs started recording on the Roamio.

Second Test Seasons Passes. 5 of 6 programs scheduled to start at one time, season pass with highest priority in season pass manager set to record starting 5 minutes after the other 5. In other words, the season pass with the highest priority scheduled to start 5 minutes after 5 other season passes.

Same units, software, etc.

6 season passes created. Programs "start" at 2pm.

First of those season passes set to highest priority in Season pass manager, and set to pad by starting 5 minutes early.

Remaining 5 of those season passes set to highest priority in season pass manager, and set to pad by starting 10 minutes early.

Mini switched to "Live TV" at 1:40pm.

No programs recording (obviously other than buffer) on Roamio Pro.

Through 1:50, no message on any screen. Checked Roamio...

Problems. Season Pass Manager failed to function properly at 1:50pm. Two shows did not start recording, one of them being one that Season Pass recording options specify "Start Recording 10 minutes early".

Also the program set to start recording 5 minutes early started recording 10 minutes early.

I double checked the season passes for each of these to make sure.

At 2pm all 6 programs were recording, got the same message on the Mini which due to the Season Pass Manager failures I did not interrupt.

I can't say for sure what caused the season pass settings to fail. 3 of the 6 started when they should have. 1 started 5 minutes too early, and 2 started 10 minutes too late.

I was not expecting this. I'm going to run this test again.... I really don't think it has anything to do with mini DTA. I'm wondering if the rapid setup of 6 season passes is too much for the Roamio to handle reliably.....

The Simpsons - The Man Who Came To Be Dinner **SPOILERS**

Mon, 01/05/2015 - 13:00
OK, while I'm sure I missed an episode here and there I have seen just about every episode of The Simpsons from the beginning. And yeah, the current episodes aren't as good as the old ones. But they are still quite enjoyable and still much better than the majority of sit-coms out there. But every once and a while one of their episodes deserves special mention and this is one.

I always like Sci Fi themed episodes so I knew I'd like this one and I wasn't disappointed. (I loved Futurama - Burn in Hell Fox, Cartoon Network and Comedy Central for canceling it!!) I always like the crazy aliens Kang and Kodos but I don't remember if we've ever been to their planet before. But of course the best part was all the Star Trek references. Especially near the end when they are going home with Homer in the captain's chair on the bridge and Marge with the earphone in her ear. And lastly during the closing credits with scenes from Star Trek portrayed by the Simpsons and friends.

Overall one of their best episodes in a long time!!


Tivo Premiere XL now streaming externally via Tivo STREAM!

Mon, 01/05/2015 - 11:44
Hi Tivo friends,

I apologize if this is old news, but I just had to inquire with the Tivo community here.

I have 2 Premiere XL series and a TIVO Stream. There are no Roamio Pro's series in my setup. Until recently, I could only stream content from the Tivo's to my iPhone or iPAD while inside my home network.

Today I just noticed that "out-of-network streaming" is now working on both my iPad and iPhone 5s outside of my home! This is great! I only thought that the Roamio Pro series supported this feature!

Has anyone with a similar setup noticed this is now working for them? Did TIVO sneak in an update without telling us?


MOCA and looped/home-run wiring

Mon, 01/05/2015 - 11:16
Awaiting my Romio Pro today and three minis to replace my S4 and Comcast DVR. A question about MOCA:

My home's cable is wired in a combination of looped and home-run outlets, but all of of one feed coming in to the house (garage junction). Will I be able to set up a MOCA network to all of these end points?

"Great Sexpectations" and Tivo

Mon, 01/05/2015 - 05:28

June 29, 2003 was the first time I heard of TiVo. It appeared on Sex and the City, when Miranda falls hard for Tivo. Unfortunately, TiVo lets her down like all her other lovers.

That would have been a series 2, i think.

New Roamio -- Some programs stop recording early

Sun, 01/04/2015 - 23:11
I just upgraded one of my two Premieres to a new Roamio Plus. So now I have a premiere and a roamio using cable cards. The Roamio has been periodically stopping recording about 15 min early. This has been way too frequent. In the past week it did it during Major Crimes and then tonight it stopped at 47 minutes during both The Good Wife and Resurrection, the exact same point on both programs. The Roamio is still receiving Video, when I saw this on my Premiere once in a while but was because I stopped receiving Video and had to restart the Premiere box. I restarted my box yesterday. The rest of the evening recordings recorded the full program without issue. When I check history there is nothing listed for these partial programs. Any ideas before I start looking into having Tivo replace the box.

Is it the absence or was this a funny episode.

I could do without the Rosa/Marcus stuff. Though I am interested where they're going with it.

Glad its back.

Roamio plus having problems connecting (service not found) error

Sun, 01/04/2015 - 22:39
I just got a new Roamio Plus (to replace my HD XL, which has no issues)

It can't do a full connection. It fails at several steps, but mainly at the "connecting" and "getting info".

I have a Netgear WNDR3700v2 router.
I tried with latest Netgear bios, and even upgraded to DD-WRT bios, to no avail.

I've put the Tivo in the DMZ (to avoid any port opening, etc). all with same results.

I've rebooted, reset, and even unplugged all devices from my network, and nothing seems to work.

customer service was not able to help either (after 2 hours w/ them).

When I do a network test, it connects to the internet, it gets account info, but doesn't complete and fails.

I've seen error codes: N07, N17, and other I don't recall.

I've tried both Ether and Wifi connections, each with DHCP and Static Information

Everything with similar results.
The only way it worked is if I remove the router and plug it directly to the cable modem. Hence why I've reset, even flashed, the router.

did anyone have success with same router? Or has anyone overcome similar problem? any recommendations would be much appreciated.


Tivo Stream Worth Keeping Once Your Have Added Premiere?

Sun, 01/04/2015 - 21:20
I added a Roamio Pro to my system about two months ago, previously I had a Premiere XL4 with a Stream (as well as a old Series 3). New update also included two Minis to replace cable boxes. Am still using the Premiere XL4 and Series 3 units.

Am not seeing that there is any advantage in keeping the Steam. Is there something I am not seeing that would indicate holding onto the Stream? See that there is an Ebay market for Streams.

Appreciate any and all advice.
