I have a Roamio Plus connected via WIFI in the living room. I am trying to set up a MOCA network to connect a Mini in the bedroom. I connected the Actiontec MOCA adapter to my modem and router. The Coax light is not on on the Actiontec adapter. Could this be because I have not installed a POE filter yet? Needless to say nether the Roamio nor the Mini are connecting via MOCA.
I have a Tivo HD with lifetime service that randomly reboots a few times a day. I bought this off of ebay and bought a Squaretrade warranty. They said I have to find a local repair shop, submit an invoice, and then they will reimburse me, minus the bench fee.
I will be reimbursed up to $339. From what I have read, it sounds like the hard drive. My question is do I take this to an electronics shop or a computer shop?
I appreciate your help!
Thought I'd create an episode thread so we can discuss freely without worrying about spoilers in the other thread. Maybe there's interest, maybe not.
I can't tell if this show is getting good or is entering a hitherto unknown level of stankiness. If there were ever a show that needed a "WTF? Is goin on with" web page, it's this one.
I knew Seven Of Nine and Ballesteros were going to make out as soon as she told the guards that she wanted privacy with him. I didn't expect her to go upside his head a couple of times but it was obvious what was going to happen next. I already dislike her way over the top character.
Now Dr. Hottie is bent out of shape because she caught Alan and Julia hugging. Snooze. I hate love triangles in shows that don't need them.
Looks like Ilaria gets its guards from the Imperial Stormtrooper School of Quickly Disposable Henchmen. They should have shot the crap out of the zoombies (TM) but instead just mostly stood around and got attacked.
I still don't know wtf is going on with Hataki. Maybe I should try syfy.com's Helix Access Granted web page but I don't have the patience.
Roamio Pro model. i am having a lag issue when i pause 1 or more tuners and switch to another tuner. there is a lag when switching back and forth between the tuners. it's a very noticeable lag, several, several seconds. anybody else?
software version 20.3.8-USA-6-840
on Brighthouse, with cable card and tuning adapter.
Premiere using cable/ota and 1 station lists twice on the guide. Mundo Fox 26.1 is the culprit. Both mirror each other in their listings but the difference is when I choose one, I get Mundo Fox. When I choose the the other, I get the V53 error. Looking under the hood in Channels, I only see one 26.1 and removing it removes both channel listings from the guide.
Anyone else have this happen and how is it fixed?
Guide me on what needs to me done? I tried no luck all I get a my local channels not even channel 131 fios learning channel would work. I was sent two cable cards replacement. Now I am fed up what is the wiring suppose to be like?
Just noticed that my roamio is using two ip addresses on my router. Since I have it hardwired and do not use the streaming feature (nor can I until TiVo gets their act together and produces an android app), I can only surmise that the second ip is being grabbed by the wireless adapter.
Is there any way to disable the wireless adapter? Or at least make it unreachable by potentially malicious folks in the area? Any security settings?
And how is it grabbing an ip address off of my router, which I have setup with wpa2/aes security and a hidden ssid?
My OLED S3 has been running happily for over 7 years. I've been patting myself on the back about not having sick capacitors. Can you see it coming?
The TiVo is on a UPS, so it hasn't shutdown for a year or more. Today, I needed to reconfigure my electronics stack. That all went well until I plugged the TiVo back in. Oops, it looks like it is stuck in a reboot loop. Won't even respond to kickstart.
Back out of the stack and take off the cover. There are three obviously bulging capacitors. Off to Fry's tomorrow to replace all the ones in the lists from around here. Thanks for that.
The good news? The beloved bride said "Why don't you get a new one?". So I've got a Roamio Plus with lifetime on the way.
New caps in my loyal S3 and then off to ebay to find it a good home.
(newbie to multiple tuners coming from series 2)
What is the tuner selection priority?
Recording 1 program, watching 1 program, then the schedule for a season pass comes up....
I get a prompt 'about to start recording... on other tuner' with option to cancel.
Recording 1 program, watching 1 program, then the schedule for a season pass comes up....
One of the other tuners automatically switches to that channel and starts recording without any prompts
This got me confused :confused:
Does the Suggestions page still exist (I'm coming from a TiVoHD)?
I don't mean the Suggestions folder in My Shows.
I mean the page you could go to (from Find Shows, I think) that would list a whole bunch of show titles so you could quickly rate the shows. You'd just put the cursor on a show title and hit the thumb button and move in. It'd let you very quickly rate lots of shows quickly.
I'm probably missing something obvious, but I can't seem to find it on my Pro. Is it still there or is it something that was eliminated?
I am developing a home automation application to provide remote control of the TiVos installed in a home using HomeSeer. It is pretty much complete as far as the features published in the Tivo Remote Protocol version 1.1. I figured out how to find all the TiVos on a local network, but would like access to the other features available to the Apple and Android applications.
Does anyone know when TiVo plans on providing their updated API documentation? I have been watching the developer site for years and it doesn't look like anyone has put any effort into maintaining it.
Will the "change service number" link in my account on tivo.com allow me to move the lifetime service to another (identical model) tivo box?
I'm considering socketing the prom on my tivoHD, and it would greatly steady my soldering hand if a lifetime service wasn't on the line at the time.
OK, so I set up my new basic Roamio and plugged in one of my S2s this morning to transfer what's on there to the Roamio. There isn't much at all but I don't want to lose it.
Anyway, I can see the S2 on the Roamio but it won't show me the recordings on it. I thought I read that I can transfer the recordings (yes, I know they are SD not HD). Am I wrong?
I am on the edge of two markets. I have a TivoHD, setup for OTA. My antenna can pull in both markets, but the second market channels are only in my guide if I scan for them, and they do not get any guide data. Everything just says "To Be Announced".
Is there a way to get guide data for those channels? My HR10's let me manually select a primary and secondary market, and would automatically fill my guide with the correct OTA channels that way.
BHN SPbg Keep OTA?
BHN went to all digital last summer, so that each program I recorded took 5-6Gb instead of .80-.95G My 1T TiVo would only record about 150 shows.
Eventually, to get back the ability to record more, I pulled my M-Card, and was able to view analog again, just as I can on my older TiVo.
However, that stopped me from recording a few of my favorite PBS shows on what had been 16 or 616, so I would re-insert the M card while I recorded those shows, then revert to the analog transmissions.
About a month ago, I notice many additions to my pier, e.g., 3, 3-1, 3-2, 3-3, 3-4, and 16, 16-1, 16-2, 16-3, 16-4. I started seeing that many of these channels actually showed programs! On the guide, however, they showed as "to be announced" instead of by program name. I started seeing they were the same shows that had previously shown on HD only, never down in the analog numbers.
Finally, I found titan-tv.com where I could find the programs that showed on "broadcast" channels, which I am figuring are OTA (I don't know if this is a correct assumption or not.)
I'm pretty tickled to have all these channels available all the time, and have put in several recordings through record by time and channel. Sadly, they show the time, date and channel, and I can't easily tell what shows they are, nor do they get grouped.
So, I wondered, if I were to do a guided set up as, OTA, would I then get the correct program names on my guide and in my recordings? OR, would all these extra channels be deleted never to be found again?
Do you have a suggestion what I could do to keep the channels and get the program information, or is it necessary to keep reviewing titantv on my computer?
Or, should I just accept the new to me channels and leave well enough alone?
I sold a TP4 TiVo that I had upgraded with a WD 2Tb AV drive, worked in my home for the last year without problems, my customer has the TiVo working with a cable card from is cable co and has only one problem, a very slow guide in both HDUI and SDUI (it a little faster in the SD mode but still too slow) Also the new Glo Remote that I sent him with the TiVo will not bring up the guide using the Glo guide button, he has an ols TiVo remote and the guide button works.
Has anybody seen either of these problems with a TP4 as I never seen them.
We upgraded to a Roamio from a S2 TiVo and found that the Roamio's volume output is much lower than the old S2 or a direct line feed to our Sony Bravia. We have to double the TV volume to a 40 setting when viewing thru TiVo to get the same Volume as a 20 setting when watching a direct line in. I've set the Roamio Audio setting to high and this helped but it's still much lower than the regular line in volume. What's odd is the TiVO sounds while navigating program guides or other functions are at the much higher volume setting (Line in). Doesn't make sense that the program's volume are cut in half. Is this just a quirk of the Roamio box or have I missed something in the setup.
My Roamio Plus is able to stream live and recorded content. However, after about 4 minutes it just stops streaming and the screen turns black. I am using wifi with an Asus AC router. I know Moca and ethernet are better options but at the moment that's not possible. Anyone else experience this?
i have a tivo premiere 4, and a cable card from comcast. at first i only got up to channel 21. now i am getting none. cable signal on channels is hi, and split cable to small Comcast box gets all channels.
any ideas? tried unplugging and no luck.
I am using a Vizio sound bar and switched my Tivo settings to "Dolby Digital" When I change channels it takes a little more time to hear the sound from the current channel that I switched too. Is this normal or am I doing something wrong? Thanks
