Book of Christ

It's another of Adult Swim's 3am (EDT) specials. For me, this was the best one of all and it's freaking hilarious.


Back to the Wild - Chris McCandless

Tue, 11/25/2014 - 17:22
Just a heads up if you are a fan of the story of Chris McCandless - "Into the Wild" by Jon Krakauer (book and movie). There is a PBS special on tonight at 9 pm (at least in my area) called Back to the Wild - revisiting his story.

Sorry - it's actually called Return to the Wild - not Back to the Wild.

Deal on Refurb Roamios

Tue, 11/25/2014 - 13:56
Tivo now has a deal on factory renewed Roamios. $0 for Roamio, $99 for plus, $199 for Pro. However, it requires a 2 year service agreement, no lifetime option. I called to see about lifetime and basically the price factors in the rental cost, so no lifetime.

He suggested calling black Friday to see if any new deals are added.

Add another Roamio?

Tue, 11/25/2014 - 13:42
I have had a Roamio Basic and 2 Mini's now for about 6 months. I bought the Basic model because at time I had an antenna and wanting the OTA DVR. Well, my family liked the Tivo so much I added a cable card with my local provider, New Wave Communications, and have been very happy ever since...

Only problem, I need more tuners. The 4 in the Basic just are not enough. I thought about replacing the Basic with a Pro. If I do that, will the cable company have to "marry" cable card to the new Roamio Pro? Or can I simply swap it from the Basic to the Pro and be on my way?

What about adding a Pro to my setup? Would that give me 10 tuners? How would this work with my Mini's. Would they "see" both Roamios under "My Shows? Which Roamio would they record to?

Sorry for all the questions...just trying to figure out the best way to get more tuners.:)

Netflix app keeps signing out on Roamio & Minis?

Tue, 11/25/2014 - 13:20
So starting a month or so ago I started noticing an annoying behavior with my Roamio & Mini setup... Netflix seems to randomly get signed out on the boxes.

Does anyone know if there is a setting, etc, to keep login persistent? It's a real PITA for me because my Netflix email and password are quite lengthy and typing them into the Tivos over and over again is a hassle.

Roamio Plus Green Light Goes Out - Sling Box issue

Tue, 11/25/2014 - 10:41
I am noticing that after a day or two, the Tivo Green light is going out. I have had some issues with this causing the sling box to not be available. I think it is some sort of sleep issue where the video output (component HD) is not recognized by the Sling 350.

Any ideas?

Lineup change for STARZHD

Tue, 11/25/2014 - 09:10
I recently received a lineup change from TiVo with STARZHDP replacing STARZHD on the same channel number. (Comcast-Denver, Mountain time zone.) Program listings for STARZ are now 3 hours off making it impossible to schedule recordings or season passes let alone see what's actually playing at the moment. Since I'm in the Mountain time zone I don't understand why I am now receiving STARZ Pacific. Anyone else in the Denver area having the same issue? I have reported this to TiVo through their programming issues department but haven't heard anything.

New Roamio Plus w/ Lifetime - Chicagoland

Tue, 11/25/2014 - 02:28
I have a new Roamio Plus with lifetime that I ordered and realized I really don't need. I can still send it back to Tivo but offering it up for $599 if picked up in Chicago area. If you want it shipped you would have to cover shipping.

Premier and Apple TV

Tue, 11/25/2014 - 01:29
I just bought a used premier with lifetime service on eBay. Will be delivered Wednesday.

I'm trying to discover all the other features of the device besides just recording. I'll be using it for antenna tv. I have an Apple TV as well. Will tivo replace my Apple TV? I saw you can stream Netflix on the TiVo...but then again you probably can't stream everything in iTunes either like Apple TV.

Don't want to give up my Apple TV, I was just curious.

New Amazon Instant Video Won't Setup!

Tue, 11/25/2014 - 00:20
So I got the latest firmware update on my Tivo Roamio and my 2 Tivo minis and was able to log into my Amazon Prime account on my Roamio no problem and watch video but when I try to log into my Prime account on my minis I get invalid user name or password no matter what. And yes the user name and password is correct as I tried it several times but no go. And yes I can log into my account online no problem with it. Am I alone in this problem? I looked through the forums and saw nothing else about this.

Gotham 110 - "LoveCraft" (11/24/14)

Mon, 11/24/2014 - 23:42
Nice interactions between Bruce and Cat as he starts to experience the world of crime from a different perspective than just as victimized bystander. I was hoping that while they were being chased by the baddies in Wayne Manor and they popped into the closet, that this would give the first glimpse of a hint of a bat cave. But it wasn't to be so. :(

Alfred is quite the butler ... as in kicking butt-lering! And he seemed to charm Fish with his proper Britishisms. :cool:

And now Gordon goes to Arkham Asylum. I'm gonna' hafta' dig out the old Arkham Asylum Xbox game to get a feel for that place again.

Netflix & youTube casting problems

Mon, 11/24/2014 - 23:30
Since the update, I have had trouble casting from my iPhone and iPad. It used to be when I had YouTube or netflix open on my iPhone, I would automatically get the icon to cast whatever I was watching on my iPhone to the TiVo. Now, I have to open the respective ap on TiVo, before I see the icon to catch the content. Is anyone else having this problem?

Remote control layout ideas.

Mon, 11/24/2014 - 19:52
1) Make a remote without the number buttons. Personally just never watch much live tv and I don't think I've used the numbers in the 4 months since I returned to Tivo.

2) Add old school T9 (cellphone-style) keyboard to number buttons.

Seems like it would cost nothing to add this and would help speed up text entry on the regular remote.

TiVo third party ip control

Mon, 11/24/2014 - 16:47
Is anyone out there controlling tivo roamio or tivo mini ip via port 1413. I am able to control my boxes with port 31339 but not able to on 1413. I was told that port 1413 is supposed to be used on roamio and mini to get ip control to work correctly. However, my boxes don't respond to commands when using port 1413. When using port 31339 commands are blocked by the TiVo mini when the delete recording screen pops up at the end of a recorded show. Once the screen times out, control resumes

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Is TiVo letting premier owners transfer lifetime memberships these days?

Mon, 11/24/2014 - 14:51
I want to upgrade my parents to a roamio... Are they allowing that these days?
