New Roamio base - Video Providers Missing

Tue, 03/04/2014 - 06:51
Just bought a Roamio. I am not seeing any of the VOD apps (Netflix, Amazon, YouTube, etc) in the Video Provider List. I do not see them in the "What wo watch now" list.

In fact, when I try to look at the "What to watch now screen," I get a (C501) error.

I called TIVO support and they told me to wait 3 days for those apps to come down from the servers. Does this sound right? I would have thought that those apps would have been pre-loaded.

Out this month, according to their press release. How well will it work with TiVo equipment?

Pairing a CableCard to Another Device

Tue, 03/04/2014 - 00:17
I'm currently using a HTPC with a Ceton InfiniTV 6 tuner installed for my DVR needs. Long story short, I decided to get rid of the HTPC and get a TiVo Roamio Pro.

My question is, will I be able to take the CableCard from the Ceton, insert it into the TiVo Roamio, and call Comcast to re-pair it to the new device or will I have to go get a new CableCard all together?

MLB.tv problems

Mon, 03/03/2014 - 22:29
I can use that app just fine, but as soon as I try to get out of the app my tivo crashes. It just leaves me with a black screen. My remote makes noises but nothing appears on my tv

Does anyone else have this problem? Is there a solution to it?

Tivo Discount Codes

Mon, 03/03/2014 - 21:12
I have 3 codes for the TiVo sales training specials and maybe 3 more. I'm not sure what to do with them. It seems that people got mad on these forums with someone who tried selling them. I don't need them as I already have a Pro and 2 minis. I'll probably list the actual products on eBay and then drop ship them. Any thoughts, interest or ideas?

HIMYM - Vesuvius - 2014/03/03

What the hell was that ending :confused:

it sounded (and looked) like two people reminiscing about a friend at a funeral

remote problems?

Mon, 03/03/2014 - 19:31
On my TivoHD during the last few months, I've noticed that when pressing keys on the remote, that it's actually performing a "double click" action. I.E. it's actually pressing the button twice. Even happens when "paging up" or down also. Tried changing batteries, but problem persists. Is it a problem with the remote or the sensor on the unit? BTW Tivo is about 5 years old.

comcast ondemand srm-8 error

Mon, 03/03/2014 - 18:24
with my Romeo and Mini, if one device is using Comcast Xfinity on demand and then the other device also tries to use on-demand, the newest device will get SRM - 8 error message. I thought I would be able to access on demand from both devices at the same time?

Does the TiVo Stream Transmit over a wireless network or does it create one?

Does the TiVo Stream Transmit over a wireless network or does it create one?

If you have a wired network without wireless in your home, will the TiVo Stream work in your home?
Does the TiVo Stream transmit directly from the TiVo Stream box or from the Roamio Plus or Pro box? or Does the "Sream" only work over an existing wifi network?

If you are out of the home you would receive the "Steam" over someone else's wireless network?

Can a Series 3 HD TCD652160 connect to a MoCA network?

Can a Series 3 HD TCD652160 connect to a MoCA network?

I have a new Roamio and I have been using a Cat 5 crossover cable to transfer content between the Roamio and the Series 3. This is a basic computer to computer network connection.

Has anyone had any success in connecting a Series 3 HD TiVo to a MoCA network?

question about the TCD748000

Mon, 03/03/2014 - 17:24
I may have an opportunity to get a Premiere XL (TCD748000). I think the 1TB drive is standard, correct? Does this model also usually come with a glo remote?

Is there an easier way to get to HD channels?

Mon, 03/03/2014 - 17:15
Just got a Roamio, and I am currently adding all my shows to record. I used to be able to hit info on the channel guide and there was a button that would ask to take me to the HD channel. Now with the Tivo, let's say I wanted to record How I Met Your Mother. I have to find it in the guide, hit info, go to Explore This Show, and check other show times and then record from there.

Is there a button that will take me to the HD equivalent to the channel I am watching now?

Parks and Recreation - Season Six Thread

Mon, 03/03/2014 - 16:27
I'm just creating this thread because I want to share this awesome video of deleted scenes from the most recent episode. But in looking for the thread to post it in, I realize that we don't have regular P&R threads, so I decided to just create one where we can discuss if there is something worthy of discussing. Like the video in this link:



Anyone want a free Tivo?

Mon, 03/03/2014 - 16:01
I have an old series 1 tivo for anyone who wants it.

I had upgraded the disks, but I had made no other mods.

I'm in Ealing, west London if you want to pick it up.


Cat5 Crossover Cable works to rapidly transfer content between Series 3 & Roamio

A Cat5 Crossover Cable works to rapidly transfer content between Series 3 & Roamio

A 30 minute show transferred in less than 5 minutes and an hour show in less than 10 minutes.

I have a new Roamio and several older TiVos in the house.

I wanted to move some content between my Series 3 TCD652160 and my new Roamio. My first thought was to use a router or a switch between the two units. When I was looking for cables to connect to a router I found a Cat 5 Crossover Cable that I had on hand to connect directly between two computers. Since the TiVo is really a basic computer, I thought that I would give it a try. I did and it worked.

The only downside was that I couldn't see the content on the Series 3 on my Mac in TiVo Transfer via a wireless connection (usb TiVo adapter) with the crossover cable connected to the Ethernet ports.

Can I use the Crossover cable to connect from my Roamio to my MacBook Pro to speed up the transfer of shows?

When I did a search on this Site I didn't find anything newer than 2010 that addressed connecting two TiVo units.

My first post here :) I have read posts on the Site for years, but I just recently registered.

Universal Remote?

Mon, 03/03/2014 - 12:09
I'm looking for a universal remote for my system. I want to maintain as much function of the Tivo remote as I can, and additionally be able to control my TV, Blu-Ray, and surround sound.

Video on Demand won't come up Fixed It

Mon, 03/03/2014 - 11:54
I was able to solve the problem with a "hard" reboot, ie unplug the TIVO. I would try this with any problem as a starting point.

I own a Tivo Series 3 HD. Can I download movies to it from Google Play? Thanks.

Accessing Roamio with browser

Mon, 03/03/2014 - 10:13
Trying to access my new Roamio Plus via a browser (Firefox). Need username and password after getting Roamio interface using 192.168.xxx.xxx. Earlier models used "TiVo" as username and the media access key as the password. Doesn't work with the Roamio Plus.

What username/password combination is required for the Roamio Plus?

TiVo Roamio Plus in Oscars Swag Bag

Mon, 03/03/2014 - 09:50

Quote: While Matthew McConaughey and Cate Blanchett were taking home Independent Spirit Awards at a ceremony in Santa Monica on Saturday that has begun to honor much the same talent as all the other awards ceremonies, backstage, presenters and stars were plied with swag in the official presenter gift lounge, produced by On 3 Productions.

In addition to New Balance sneakers, Sabra hummus, TiVo’s Roamio Plus, DJI Phantom 2 Vision cameras and year-long memberships to Crunch gym, actors like Angela Bassett, Jane Lynch, Laura Dern and Miles Teller were offered a one-year supply—that’s 24 cartons—of Breyers Gelato Indulgences, a new ice cream available at U.S. supermarkets in flavors like vanilla caramel, strawberry cheesecake and Tiramisu.

Do celebrities even eat ice cream?

“Everyone likes ice cream,” said Rachel Vassak, the brand manager for Breyers. “This is such a ridiculously indulgent product that it’s almost like you can’t even help yourself from trying it.”

With the help of On 3 Productions, Breyers showed off the item in bedazzled tubs, a tactic that parent company Unilever had used previously in suites like this sponsored by I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter.

“We always know in this type of activation, it’s nice to celebrate the glamour,” said Casey DePalma, the marketing communications manager of foods at Unilever. “Date night can be glamorous even if you’re at home with your husband.”

Plus, added Ms. Vassak, the tubs catch the light in a particularly attractive way. “It’s a fun way to celebrate how beautiful the product is,” she said.
