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?

The Good Wife S6E10 The Trial (23 Nov. 2014)

Mon, 11/24/2014 - 14:00
Wow. Kalinda's playing with fire. "Anyone know you're here [or can I just kill you right now with my bare hands]?"

Speaking of Kalinda, was the restraining order lifted? She and Cary were super close & even touching this episode.

Finn & Alicia's candlelit dinner with live music was awesome.

MoCA with Tuning Adapter - New Splitter Needed?

Mon, 11/24/2014 - 13:01
Hi, all. I tried searching the forums but just need a quick answer for my situation.

I have a Roamio (basic) with a Tuning Adapter connected via ethernet to the cable modem right next to it. I will be setting up a TiVo Mini tonight in my bedroom that only has a cable outlet. I read on the forums MoCA does not play nice with tuning adapters.

Right now my cable set up is this:
Outlet->2-way splitter->Modem
___________________->Tuning Adapter->Roamio

Will I need to purchase a 3-way splitter and a second POE filter?
Outlet->3-way splitter->MoCA->Modem
___________________->POE->Tuning Adapter


MTR700 Firmware version?

Mon, 11/24/2014 - 11:59
Can anyone tell me what the firmware version of an MTR700 I am planning to buy:
Phase 2.7
Platform ID 176

I'm at my wit's end. Charter will not help--after 10 calls or so says that Tivo needs to update THEIR firmware. Tivo says it's in the TA firmware, which most, if not all, the info in forums suggest is true. I'm looking at buying an MTR700 off ebay but don't know the firmware version, just the above mentioned data.

Charter also says that they have NO different firmware versions, as confirmed by the local Charter store, which as a bunch of the same ones, all refurbs.

Weird (no) sound issue with 20.4.5

Mon, 11/24/2014 - 08:01
Hi all,

got a weird one. The Roamio+ and all 4 of our minis got 20.4.5 last week. All looks good except...

We have 2 Samsung 19" tvs in the house. Now both of them have to be power-cycled multiple times to get sound out of its respective Mini. The other televisions in the house (that aren't these Sylvania jobbies) have no such issue- turn them on, and the audio is there as expected.

If I switch over the Roku stick on the other HDMI port, there's sound as usual. But nothing from the Mini.

I guess this is some sort of weird interaction between the Sylvania TVs and the updated Mini? Probably a task for TiVo support?

Do I need a slingbox?

Mon, 11/24/2014 - 07:43
This is the second time I'm on vacation since I got the Tivo Plus last December. The first 2-3 days the tivo stream worked fine. And now it can't connect again. I've gone months at home without using away from home stream & would remember to test the stream & it was fine. But after constant streaming away from home network for 2-3 days in a row something happens. I was hoping to catch up on 1-2 shows a day. I'm thinking my only option to guarantee I can watch my recorded shows while I'm away is to get a slingbox. Or some remote app that let's me reset a surge protector with the router & Romeo plugged into it. Anyone know of a reasonable solution cheaper than a slingbox 350 or 500?

I am still able to get to the Romeo to delete shows so I don't believe it's the home network.

Deauthorizing an Android Youtube app from casting?

Mon, 11/24/2014 - 06:36
Somehow, my neighbor who has an Android phone and shares the same wifi network as I do, can load up his Youtube app and choose my Tivo to cast to. He apparently didn't need to do any kind of authorization, like I had to do with my iOS phone's Youtube app.

Whats the deal with that? Does it really need authorization, and maybe he came over and my roommate let him in to authorize it while I was away at work? Does the Android app not need authorization/pairing? How can I shut it down?

I've noticed this issue for the past week or so:

Tivo resets itself

Sun, 11/23/2014 - 23:37
I have a Tivo Series3 (v 11.0m-01-2-658) with a dual tuner cable card and also connected via coax cable through a Cisco tuning adapter to the cable modem. Sometimes, when I watch a recorded show, (the McLaughlin Show to be precise; no other show causes this so far), the Tivo unit resets itself. Something in the recording is causing this because if I try to play the show again, it resets at the same point in the playback. It has happened often enough that now I try to skip the first seconds of the show. But today, it occurred in the middle of the show rather than at the beginning, like in the past.

I thought perhaps it could be because of bad sectors on the hard drive, but why does it only happen for that show, recorded at different occassions over the past months.
