Easy Verizon Cable Card Activation

Wed, 04/16/2014 - 10:02
Got my TiVo Roamio Pro yesterday and did the Verzon web Based Self install.
Within minutes I was up with all 6 tuners and Premiere Channels working.
Comcast should take a page out of Verizon's Playbook. My son has a horrible time getting activations done properly by Comcast.

Californication Final Season Thread (S7 Spring 2014)

Wed, 04/16/2014 - 09:01
And in the end... so we come to the final season of Californication. A show, much like its sister SHO Weeds, probably lasted a few seasons too long. Having said that, I thought last season was a revitalized Cali, so that gives me hope for this last season. Plus, I've watched every episode as they've aired, so who am I kidding, of course I'll watch the end.

So Hank is trying to clean up his act, play well with others, and make a living writing for TV. We'll see how long that lasts. Runkle looks good, ever since Evan Handler lost a bunch of weight a couple seasons ago. And maybe since the daughter is off on her world tour, we won't see her until the end. I always thought she was a weak link in this show.

Took me a couple of double takes before I realized that was Michael Imperioli as the TV guy.

PodCast Issues

Wed, 04/16/2014 - 08:35
Hello All,

I am having 2 issues with podcasts (on my Roamio Basic):
  1. A general issue with all of them where the beginning of the podcast video (just a sec or 2) is all messed up. This happens on all my podcasts now.
  2. An issue with Cnet podcasts: I am now getting SD versions of most (all?) of them instead of the HD versions I used to get.
Anyone else seeing the above? Any thoughts on how to fix either issue?

Agents of SHIELD OAD 4/15/2014: "Providence"

Tue, 04/15/2014 - 21:57
Coulson and the team are back to seeming pretty lame, but there's still a lot of interesting stuff going on around them. I have no idea how the show is going to cash all the checks it's writing at the moment, but this is way better than what came before this current arc. I'm a little afraid they are going to try to resolve the Hydra arc, which started in Captain America, in the show, however -- which is something way above this show's pay grade.

I guess that's a worry for another day.

So, there's pretty much no way Ward is a triple agent now, right? He's a full-on bad guy. Which is good, because he is so much more interesting that way, and Brett Dalton no longer seems like a liability as an actor. Certainly some of that is because Dalton is actually getting something interesting to play now. But I wonder whether he was so wooden as "good Ward" deliberately, because he was acting a guy putting on an act, or if he just didn't have the range to make "good Ward" remotely interesting.

Channel not tuning or channel not authorized

Tue, 04/15/2014 - 20:44
Short Story:
I have 2 Tivo Premieres that are having exactly the same problem as what is listed in this thread but mine could be on either tuner.


Longer Story
I have 2 Tivo Premiere units for almost 3 years and one regular Comcast HD STB for small TV in the kitchen. Tivo units worked flawless for at least 2 years.

At some point in 2013 I started getting recordings that did not occur and checking history on Tivo it says no signal. A few times I have caught it in the act and nothing recording and the channel says “Not Authorized” or there is a blank screen. These are all on HD versions of CBS, NBC and ABC which are 611, 612 and 613 in my area no special channels. Sometimes this happens when I am channel surfing but if I move back and forth between channels it will sometimes tune. Once tuned it seems to stay unless I change channels. Some days it does not do this at all.

This occurs randomly on both Tivos that are identical but not always the same channel on both. If I setup the same recording on both, I can get it on one but not the other. When it occurs I can go to the Comcast setup box and it seems to work no problem.

What I have tried:
1. Checked all my physical cable and signal multiple times. Seems like this would not be a issue since the STB always seems to work.

2. Have Comcast support check M-Card pairing multiple times over the last year and refresh signal multiple times. Last refresh wiped out everything and I had to re-setup modem and register all over from the ground up.

3. Worked with TIVO support multiple times and everything points back to physical cable issues, M-Card pairing or subscription problems.

4. Last weekend we had a cable cut in the yard. The cable run had been replace 5 years ago and whoever buried the cable ran it over the top of a sprinkler. Repaired the sprinkler and cut the cable.

I worked with the tech while he was here and repaired the cut and checked cable and signal at all locations. After describing the problems he suggested some things and he removed my Motorola AMP that has been working for 10 years and installed a Unity AMP from Comcast. The signal and SNR are perfect on all ports. The tech was excellent BTW and did a great job. While he did not really find anything wrong other than the cut he made changes and checked signal everywhere.

Needless to say the next day after the tech was here I started getting the same channel issues and dropped recordings.

Last discussion with Tivo today the tech suggested replacing both M-Cards or both Tivos. If I really believed both units failed identically I would do it but it beyond unlikely. I have 30 days left on my warranty so I need to decide something.

I have a case manager working with me from Comcast as well but so far no luck.

If you read this far, thanks for listening. If you have any suggestions that I have not tried I would appreciate them.


new roamio. Need help with sp transferring.

Tue, 04/15/2014 - 20:14
I used kmttg to transfer all of my season passes. No issues there. I am however having a problem with the show Wilfred. It is set to record on FX, when it has now moved to FXX. Is there a way to edit the channel on which it's going to record? Season 4 of wilfred is going to air on FXX instead of FX, and there isn't a release date for it yet. I dont want to miss the final season. Any options? I created a wishlist search for it just to be sure. I'd rather it record the season pass so I dont get all the reruns and stuff tho.

Upgrade to Roamio on Oceanic TWC

Tue, 04/15/2014 - 13:47
After the last 24 hours with Oceanic Time Warner Cable tech support trying to get the cable card from my old Tivo Premiere to work in my my new Roamio, I thought I would share the solution for anyone else out there having the same problem.

My Tivo Premiere XL went dead after three years last week. I called Tivo and purchased a new Roamio. The new unit arrived three days later.

I disconnected the old Premiere and installed the new Roamio in its place. I removed the cable card from the old Premiere and inserted it into the new Roamio. I then called Oceanic Time Warner Cable to have the card "re-paired".

After 30 minutes on the phone (this after waiting a hour for them to call me back) the Tivo was still not working. The cable card screen kept popping up. The tech was clearly just reading information off a script with long pauses. It was 9:00PM at night so I called it a night.

I awoke the next day and repeated the procedure with a new tech with no progress. I then contacted Tivo support. This was our first breakthrough.

Tivo support suggested I disconnect the tuning adapter as it prevents the cable card from re-pairing. In the end I'm not sure if this was really the problem but I mention it here just in case.

I called Oceanic Time Warner Cable back for a third tech support person. I explained that I had removed the tuning adapter and wanted Oceanic to try to re-pair the card. She was confused but his worked in my favor as this caused her to look up a procedure in the "troubleshooting section".

Based on this "procedure", it seems that when you swap a cable card from one device to another, you have to follow a certain set of steps in sequence to get the card to un-pair from the first host (Tivo box) and then pair to the new host. The procedure was as follows:

1. Remove the tuning adapter as it can only get in the way of the pairing (my recommendation, not in the official Oceanic procedure)
2. Unplug and remove the old Tivo.
3. Remove the cable card from the old Tivo
4. install the new Tivo without the new cable card.
5. Call Oceanic Time Warner Cable and tell them to follow the special troubleshooting procedure to un-pair the cable card from the original host.
6. Have Oceanic Time Warner then pair the cable card to the new host. (You'll need the Host ID and Cable Card Serial number for this).
7. Once paired, install the cable card in the new Tivo.
8. Have Oceanic Time Warner Cable send a re-authorization.
9. Verify that you can now tune in all non-tuning adapter channels.
10. Reinstall the tuning adapter.
11. Reboot for good measure.

I hope this helps out others in the future.

Nurse Jackie Season 6 Thread **SPOILERS**

Tue, 04/15/2014 - 13:23
Its probably not worth having a thread for each episode so I set this up as a full season thread.

WOW, Jackie really fell off the wagon and now seems to be using drugs even more than in previous seasons. Too bad but probably expected! And now Grace is using too!! It will be interesting to see where things go.


HDMI not permitted on device using Mini's A/V Output

Tue, 04/15/2014 - 12:41
Use Mini hooked up to large TV via HDMI and also hardwired to small bedside DVD player (which I use as a mpnitor) via the Mini's A/V output. Occasionally when watching on DVD player only, I will get the "HDMI not Permitted Banner". I can stop this banner by turning on large TV for approx 30 seconds simultaneously with the DVD player, then turning off large TV, which clears the banner on the DVD player. I watch this small DVD player when wife is sleeping, so turning on large TV sort of defeats the purpose.

Any ideas how to eliminate the warning?

iPad connects to "Away Network" when at home

Tue, 04/15/2014 - 12:12
I have a Roamio Pro connected via MOCA to my Verizon FIOS home network. I initially set up the TiVo app on my iPad using my home network. Subsequently the iPad connected via an away network while I was out of town.

Now I am home again but the iPad continues to say that it is connecting via an away network. I keep forcing it to reconnect while I sit in the same room as my router, but it does not recognize the network as being at home.

What can I do to fix this?

Mount Drive with Mac and Backup?

Tue, 04/15/2014 - 12:10
I have a TiVo Premiere that just got it's Ethernet fried. Everything else still works. I have bought a Premiere XL on Craigslist to replace it. There is not a LOT of content on the old one that I'm too worried about, but if it's not too much trouble to copy them off I'd like to. What I'm more interested in is: is there anyway to backup my schedules and install them on the new XL? I know there are ways to do this with an Internet connected Tivo, but is there a way without? What about putting the old TiVo HD in an external enclosure and hooking it to the XL??? I have no idea, grasping at straws. Any help appreciated.
