Sleepy Hollow S02E18 Tempus Fugit

Tue, 02/24/2015 - 06:20
Now THAT's the batsh*t Sleepy Hollow we all know and love!

They've managed to fix almost all of what was wrong with this season and gotten back to their root of sheer "is this logical and sane? no? we're doing it anyway", they got the band back together, Katrina is gone, Abbie saved herself!

This was a great way to go out and set up for season 3, now they just need to get renewed :(

EW did a great recap that hit almost every scene I loved

The last handful of episodes really picked up the pace and were more like those wonderful episodes of S01 containing things like zombie George Washington, I mean holographic Thomas Jefferson was a jerk, but he was so awesome.

A New NBCHD picture issue...Jumpy Stuttering

Mon, 02/23/2015 - 23:43
So many of us have noted the issue with NBC's HD broadcasts of sports and the 1x FF issue...which also plagues me on Fios in massachusetts...

Well of late, since around the superbowl all NBC channels (NBC, NBCSN, CNBC) broadcasting sports have this weird stuttering of the frame rate that is more pronounced on the lower 3rd of the screen..Almost like the entire 1/3 of the bottom of the image is shifting a fraction to the side and the entire picture is jumping...
Like when your horizontal or vertical hold was off whack on a old tube tv
It's horrible when watching Hockey on NBCSN....

And the stuttering/frame shifting doesn't occur in slow motion...

Gotham S01E17: 2/23/15 "Under the Red Hood"

Mon, 02/23/2015 - 22:04
Fsh Mooney is now getting ridiculous. I'm not sure what Fsh is trying to prove there. Is she going to be wearing an eyepatch for the rest of the series, or will they give Fsh her eye back?

Is Butch really brainwashed?

After coming out of pause, there is no sound

Mon, 02/23/2015 - 20:42
I'm having a strange problem I'm hoping you guys can help me with. I have searched these forums but have not found a thread addressing this, so here I am.

Whenever I pause my Tivo (Roamio +), there is no sound upon coming out of pause. It's never happened before, and it appears to have coincided with the "One Pass" update. Not sure if that has anything to do with it or not. I am not using any external speakers of any sort - just HDMI from the Tivo to the TV. It has worked perfectly since the day I bought it, but now I lose sound every time I pause the unit. This has been going on for a week or so now. I have to go back to Tivo Central, play live TV, then go back again and replay my recorded show. What a pain! I can't figure out what is going on and the problem does not go away. I have reset the Tivo twice, but no change. Would love some help on this one!


Video issue

Mon, 02/23/2015 - 19:55
I have a Roamio, and am having a random video issue. The bottom 25% of the screen is scrambled. It actually looks like it blending a previous feed. For example. I am watching a recorded basketball game on from ESPN. The bottom 25%, basically just above where the score is displayed, has an image from "the studio" update. It is a split screen of two people talking.

However, if I fast forward it, I get a clear image, while fast forwarding. I jumped to live TV, on the same channel, and the feed is clear on there.

Tivo Roamio OTA Reception Problems

Mon, 02/23/2015 - 17:40
I recently dropped the ripoff also known as Comcast and switched to an OTA. I used the antenna displayed through the link below and received over 50 channels downtown Jersey City. Then I purchased the Tivo Roamio OTA-- enter the problem. When I connected the TIVO to the antenna I went down to 20 channels. Has anyone else had this problem? If so, how did you correct it? A tivo rep recommended an amplified antenna but since I am 5 miles or less from the broadcasting stations I think that may make things worst. Again, any suggestions?



Sound but no picture?

Mon, 02/23/2015 - 17:18
This is a new symptom I've never seen before: ESPN HD (channel 403 here in Delray Beach, FL with comcast) has no picture, but does have sound. As near as I can tell, only that channel has the problem. Has anyone ever seen this happen before?

I'm going to reboot the TiVo when it finishes the recording it is making on a different channel and see if the picture comes back.

Tivo forum(s) down?

Mon, 02/23/2015 - 17:15
Was it just me or did others out there get an error message from the Tivo Apache server today when trying to access this forum? This morning it was particularly amusing... the error message said something about "you think you're depressed.... think how the server feels". Got a kick out of that ;)

It was still returning a slightly different (but still containing the Tivo sever info) error message this evening (6:05PM EST). However, when I Googled "Tivo forums" and followed the link to this page, the page came up fine. And all subsequent attempts from my bookmark also work correctly.

This wasn't on my end... the error message was pretty clearly from the Tivo mothership.

Roamio shows on Premier in other room, problems

Mon, 02/23/2015 - 15:35
I used to watch shows recorded on my Roamio on my Premier without any issues. I recently moved (everything setup exactly the same) but now I am having a lot of lag/stalling when attempting to watch shows across the network using the powerline adapter. Absolutely nothing about my setup has changed.

I've switched outlets, powerline boxes, restarted both units. Can anyone think of anything else that might be helpful in resolving this? Tivo mini using powerline adapter in another room plays shows from the Roamio box just fine.

Thanks in advance!

PM Spam

Mon, 02/23/2015 - 15:17
I just got a spam PM from mbates73 that I'm assuming went to many others, but I don't see a way to report a PM?

Am I missing something? I'd think that the ability to report abuses in PM would be very handy.

Strange private message from a Tivo Memeber

Mon, 02/23/2015 - 15:04
Any one else get a strange private email from a Tivo Community Member today?

It looks like spam and when I looked up the member he hasn't posted in a long time.

20.4.6aRC1 Release Notes

Mon, 02/23/2015 - 14:38
We are in the process of authorizing TiVo Premiere households that signed up for the Priority List to receive 20.4.6aRC1. It should be available by the end of the day.

Here are some other changes in the release:

- OnePass replaces Season Pass

- Ability to add a link to a streaming movie and have it appear in the “Streaming Movies” folder in My Shows

- Updated Amazon Instant Video app (with Amazon Prime) will be available on TiVo Premiere boxes
Note: It may take 24-48 hours for the app to appear after the update.

- If you are running the 3.5 or later version of the TiVo app for iOS, you will be able to “move” shows that were recorded on your DVR from copy-protected channels. (Once the download has been completed, the original recording will be deleted from your DVR. Downloads must be initiated while on your home network.)

- Additional screens are now available in “HD Menus” style: “Find by Time”, and “Find by Channel”. They are located under TiVo Central > Manage Recordings & OnePass.

- Amazon Instant Video now appears alongside other apps in My Shows

- Fixed the issue where some Mini customers would see a V87 error when they tried to watch an episode that was still recording on the DVR

- Fixed an issue where some customers would see a blue spinning circle when trying to create or update a Season Pass (now OnePass)

- Fixed an issue where duplicate recordings were happening when a user deleted a single episode from a Season Pass (now OnePass) and created a manual recording instead

- Fixed a problem where modifying a Season Pass in SD menus would set it to record on “all channels"

- Addressed an issue with SDV related to a specific operator configuration. (This is the only difference between 20.4.6 and 20.4.6aRC1.)

For those not on the priority list, I expect the full rollout to be complete on Premiere by the middle of March.

Up Next: Our 2015 Spring release will make VUDU available on Premiere boxes.

MOCA Network Setup

Mon, 02/23/2015 - 11:42
I have a fairly simple question. Can I set up my MOCA network between the Tivo Roamio and my Mini directly?

I have an OTA line running from upstairs to the Roamio. Can I setup the MOCA adapter between that line and the Mini upstairs and then use that as my established MOCA network? The MOCA adapter and Roamio will both be connected to the Router via Ethernet.

What can i do to stop my tuning adapter from disconnecting?

Mon, 02/23/2015 - 11:17
I get a message on my TiVo roamio saying the tuning adapter has disconnected and all shows stop recording. What can I do to stop this from happening?

How do I find out what channels use the tuning adapter?

and why does the red led on the tuning adapter blink every time I use the remote?


Cross-site scripting warnings?

Mon, 02/23/2015 - 11:06
I've been seeing a couple of warnings from Firefox lately. I just had to re-install it so I don't have NoScript on, but plain old Firefox is telling me that "Firefox prevented this page from automatically redirecting to another page."

I generally read the forum by selecting "New posts" and then opening a new tab for each thread I want to read. I'm getting the warning on about half the therads. I can reinstall NoScript and post more specific stuff from the console if that would be useful.

OTA and Raw Cable on Same Line

Mon, 02/23/2015 - 10:58
I don't think this is possible with the Roamio, but I thought I would ask. I have the Roamio basic with OTA or Cable option. I cancelled my cable this weekend, but I do see I still get quite a few SD channels coming in from my internet cable line. Of course, I don't get the local HD channels, which I do need. So, is it possible to use a filter like the LMP-450 for the cable line to have both the raw cable and OTA line going in from a splitter? I imagine my main issue even if this was possible would be the fact that I can not run a setup for both on the Tivo, but I thought I would just throw this out there.

Periodically losing Comcast 85MHz channels

Mon, 02/23/2015 - 10:23
Comcast Atlanta - I am periodically losing 4 HD channels, all 4 are 1t 85MHz. Is there anything peculiar about that frequency? No real idea how long this has been going on but I first noticed it last Thursday as it lost the signal on HSTRYHD(852) a few minutes in to the first episode of the new season of "Vikings" . I checked all of my HD capable TiVos and had no signal on all of them. I set up to record 2 different later showings on both the TiVo that had tried to record it initially and another TiVo on a different outlet. and both of them successfully recorded the episode.

Last night, the channels were there. Today they are gone.

There's a tech coming by between 1&3 today but I doubt if he'll be able to do anything.
