I'm not sure what to do? Mini questions.

Tue, 03/03/2015 - 08:34
I updated an older post of mine about my Roamio basic and mini having issues. Currently, everything is ethernet. I'm now contemplating going MocA. But looking at some of the threads, I am left confused. Not to mention other people are having issues with moca as well. :(

Would my Roamio stay on my regular ethernet network??? Or do the roamio and mini have to be on a moca network?

What kind of hardware do I need (this may be the deal breaker)? Do I need a moca adapter for he incoming cable and each device (roamio, mini)?

I'm going to reset everything on my ethernet network one more time today but I am beyond frustrated with everything tivo at the moment. It sucks paying hundreds of dollars and not being able to watch tv in the bedroom. Seems like such a simple task.

The Good Wife - S06E13 - 3/1/15 - "Dark Money"

Tue, 03/03/2015 - 07:35
So, is Redmayne a scumbag or was it all a ruse to see what the candidates are made of? When he was hitting on Alicia I thought he was trying to find out what kind of morals she had. When he was dumping on gays I thought it possible he was still trying to see if she would sell out her beliefs for PAC money. By the end of the episode I thought he was just a scumbag. BUT. Why was his daughter there at all? There has to be something more going on. But what?

Poor Kalinda, little by little she is getting in deeper and deeper.

Alicia looked very thoughtful towards the end, is she coming up with a plan to get Sweeney put into jail? On that thread, do we know for sure if he killed his wife or not? I can't remember.

I'm adding my old Series 1 Tivo to my setup, and require another Turbonet card for it to connect to the network. Anyone have one for sale or know of one?

Multi room viewing problems with Roamio?

Mon, 03/02/2015 - 22:32
Hi Everyone,

I've had a Roamio for a few months, to go along now with an S3 and a Tivo HD. Always been a big user of Multi-Room viewing, barely had any problems in 10+ years of TiVo. Connected via wired Ethernet. Since I've gotten the Roamio two annoying things have happened. Once, and only once, my Roamio froze when browsing a remote DVR, as soon as I clicked on the DVR name it hung and I had to power cycle. And worse, my S3 has frozen 4 out of 5 times when trying to transfer shows from the Roamio. This is when I actually pick the show and click to begin the transfer. Rebooted all of the DVRs, tried multiple times, it worked once, but as I mentioned something like 4 of 5 times it just freezes and I have to power cycle. The Roamio isn't frozen or seeming to have any problems at all. Having to wait so long for the device to reboot has pretty much made me afraid to try but I really would like it working. Never had any problems transferring to the TiVo HD unit from the Roamio, do that all the time and never frozen once.

Anyone see anything like this before or have any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

Recorded Onepass and then deleted but folder is still there, why?

Mon, 03/02/2015 - 20:16
I recorded show via the new "one pass" and originally setup for both local and streaming.

Once I realized all of the shows under "streaming" were for purchase only, I cancelled the onepass entirely. It no longer appears in my season pass list.

However, the folder without any shows will not disappear from my now playing list.

Any idea on how I can remove the blank folder?

Please help. Thanks.

Now that you are back, David, could you fix the Search function? Years ago when you did a search, it would bring the results back in descending order by date which is logical and helpful. For several years now, it brings them back in random order and then you have to hunt for a page that has the current year on it.


Now Playing/To Do on website gone?

Mon, 03/02/2015 - 19:36
I can no longer locate the Now Playing and To Do features for my Tivo HD on the website. Has Tivo discontinued this feature for this model?

Certainly the links listed in this thread are no longer working.

Cox Is Going All Digital

Mon, 03/02/2015 - 18:21
Cox is going to be all digital starting the beginning of August in our area (no more analog). I was just wondering if anyone else had this switchover in their area, and if so do you still need the dreaded tuning adapter once this switchover takes place?? Will it be the same as Verizon once "all digital" begins??

"Press thumbs up to record"... but I'm already watching a recording

Mon, 03/02/2015 - 11:39
Ever since getting the 20.4.6 update, sometimes when I am watching shows, I keep getting the flashing nag window, "Press :up: to record". But the thing is... I'm already watching a recording. They are shows I already have Season Passes for.

How do I get it to stop nagging me to record things that I already record? The window stays up for a very long time before going away. I feel like it used to know things that I already record because I haven't seen the flashing nag window in a very long time... I assumed since I'm 99% of the time watching things that I recorded.

Missing: Streaming Shows in OnePass

Mon, 03/02/2015 - 11:20
I have just added a TiVo mini to my Roamio OTA and the Roamio updated to 20.4.6 and my Mini is still at 20.4.5c I tried to force an update.

I can see the streaming programs on the Roamio and not the mini....

My question is do I need the new update to see the streaming programs on my OnePass on the mini?


Help! My Series 3 quit working.

Mon, 03/02/2015 - 10:37
HELP. My Series 3 quit working. "No Signal" is the result. So I tried several hard boots (i.e. remove power to the unit, wait 30 seconds, then plug power back in). I thought this was going to cure it because the regular opening TIVO screen came up, then after a short delay the normal "Don't worry, this takes a minute" message displayed. But......... then it never did continue the neat TIVO sound thing, nor did the little animated TIVO character ever show up. It simply didn't finish booting and after a minute or so the TV again reported "No Signal." Oddly the unit tried to reboot on it's own (that is without me unplugging and re-plugging the power) a couple of times. Alas, same result --- the initial TIVO screen came up, but it didn't then continue to the animated TIVO character, etc. Just returned to a "No signal" status.

My question is, what's the problem/solution? Has the box failed or just the hard drive? Are there some other solutions or diagnostics this fine group might suggest?

Need help cleaning house: "Ignored threads"

Mon, 03/02/2015 - 10:02
Can someone please help me clear out my ignored threads folder? Ideally I'd like to clean out all "ignored" threads that are from 2014 and back.

Currently when I go into my "Ignored Threads" folder, I get this error:

Quote: Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 31316042 bytes) in /home/avsforum/www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/includes/functions.php on line 5035 Thanks for any help admins can offer.

Premiere recently starting rebooting, bad HD or motherboard?

Mon, 03/02/2015 - 08:07
I need some help figuring this out.

Background. I have 3 Premieres (2 active, one still new in box, never used)

premiere #1, upgraded to 2TB 4+ years ago, no issue

Premier #2, still stock 320GB drive. about a month ago, I upgraded it to a 3tb drive, only 2.2 usable. after 1 week of solid use, it started random reboots. thinking the drive had an issue, i put the original 320gb drive in, and all worked for 1-2 weeks, until yesterday, where it also started random reboots, so much that it would only stay on for 5 minutes before a reboot.

At that point I had assumed the original drive had an issues, and when it copied to the 3tb drive, it copied bad data, and thus I had 2 "bad" drives, as far as data.

So. I took the original drive from premiere #1, and copied it to the 3tb drive. Thinking I could put it in premiere #2, as a new drive, knowing I would have to start with the guided setup and software update since it is 4+ years old as far as software goes.

But that drive won't even boot up, it reboots after about 30 seconds of "starting up"

so does this sound like some odd HD issue, or a mother board issue?

I still have a 3rd premiere I can pull out and use, but I would need to activate it, both active premieres have lifetime service on them.

roamio green screen

Mon, 03/02/2015 - 04:56
i havent seen any recent posts on a roamio green screen problem. just got one last night. it's flashing between four screens:
- welcome! starting up...
- blank (maybe tivo restarting itself?)
- almost there... just a few minutes more
- green secreen ("tivo box has detected a serious problem and is now attempting to fix it")

waited over 3 hours and it didn't recover

is my next step just to buy a new hard drive, insert it, and let it format itself?

also... the "almost there" screen usually comes up after an update. did an update go out last night? wondering if that may have caused it.

The Last Man on Earth S01E01 / S01E02 03/01/2015

Mon, 03/02/2015 - 00:13
I thought this was actually pretty good. I don't know where they're going with it exactly, but I'm along for the ride.

Kirsten Schaal is perfectly cast as the super-annoying last woman on earth... you can really believe Phil when he tells Carol he doesn't want to sleep with her even though he has no other prospects. I mean Phil is no prize, especially in the personal hygiene department, but his problems are easy to solve... Carol's issues are much more deeply rooted.

I thought Phil would just give up his house and move to another one, rather than try to clean it up.

I really liked the homage to Castaway: "apologies to Tom Hanks..." :D

TiVo sounds only on SD menus

Sun, 03/01/2015 - 23:20
This is kind of a stupid question but all the sounds my old S2 TiVo would make when FFWD'ing or scrolling through menus only happen on the SD menus. Is this normal?

Tivo Roamio RF Remote + USB Dongle

Sun, 03/01/2015 - 23:17
I have both a Roamio and a Mini. I'm using a Harmony remote for my Roamio and want to use the RF remote, that came with the Roamio, with my Mini. I purchased a USB dongle from user Davisadm.

Is there a quick guide someplace that explains how to easily pair my Mini and Roamio RF remote?
