Need 1 more programmable button on Slider Pro remote

Mon, 11/25/2013 - 12:41
Samsung TVs have a "Source" button which is used to change the input.

First the choice list shows up, and then every time you press the button the source changes.

I have my input button mapped to the source button no problem.

The problem occurs in that after you scroll to your source, you have to make your selection by pressing enter.

Unfortunately I can't figure out how or where to map an enter button for the TV.

Are there any remote hacks that allow you to program additional buttons?

Thanks,

Dan

Premier Memory Upgrade: Is it possible/Worth it?

Mon, 11/25/2013 - 12:41
I got a Premier a few months ago, just before Roamio was introduced of course and noticed that doing anything in the Tivo menu seems slow. Is it possible to upgrade the RAM or is the HD the only item that is upgradeable? If so, is there a got site to get the hardware?

Roamio - Cable and OTA?

Mon, 11/25/2013 - 11:50
So I was getting ready to pull the trigger to upgrade my Premiere to Roamio. I was looking at the image of the back of the box, and I saw only one coax input. I currently have Fios and OTA on my Premiere. So does the Roamio only support cable or OTA, but not both at the same time? Is there some kind of adapter to make it work?

I was actually a pure "cord cutter" for about 2 1/2 years. I got an offer from Verizon to reactivate Fios TV on my account for about $16/month more than I was already paying for internet and phone, plus they gave me a $250 gift card. I really like having both services on the Tivo box at the same time. I hope there is a way.

Thanks

Netflix/component/1080p issue

Mon, 11/25/2013 - 11:20
I noticed something iwith regard to Netflix and 1080p, which may have been a result of the recent software update last week. I use two outputs from the TiVo – HDMI direct to the TV set (2008 vintage Sharp LCD), and component out to my AV Receiver (Pioneer VSX-03THX), then HDMI from the receiver to the TV. I have the resolution set on the TiVo to 1080i, 1080p, and when I watch 1080p Netflix content directly via HDMI from the TiVo to the TV, the resolution starts at 1080i, then after about 15 seconds switches on the TV to 1080p. However when I watch through the receiver (component out to receiver then HDMI from receiver to TV, at the point where the resolution switches from 1080i to 1080p, the TV goes black and doesn’t recover.

I know the 1080p is working properly from the TiVo to the TV, I’m wondering if there could be a limitation on the component output or another setting somewhere that I am missing.

WOW

Lot of bad people out of the way seems like. Sad to see one go. That last scene was gut wrenching happy for a second and then sad another.

Can it be this easy?

Mon, 11/25/2013 - 09:57
Can setting up a mini in a moca setup be that easy:

Just ordered a roamio 6 tuner (150 hr) and a single mini.

My cable is pretty easy easy...

- main feed from pole to three way switch/spliter.
* 1 feed goes to modem
* 1 feed to mini
* 1 feed to roamio. (Which is right next to modem but uses its feed)

Question is - is that all that's needed to make moca work?

Multi Room Viewing Problem

Mon, 11/25/2013 - 08:52
I have a premier 4 and a premier 2 DVR. The Premier 2's hard drive recently died and I just replaced it. Everything works great on the 2 except for multi room viewing. I can Transfer recording from the 4 to the 2 and from the 2 to the 4. I can also play recordings on the 4 directly from the 2. But when I try to play recording on the 2 directly from the 4 I get the following Error:

"Problem Playing Video - There is either a temporary problem with your home network, or the DVR Den (this is my premier 4) may have been unplugged or restarted. (V68) For more info, visit tivo.com/help/V68"

One other thing I have noticed is the Premier 4 is running 20.3 whereas the premier 2 is running 20.2. I have connected to the Tivo service multiple times on the premier 2 and restarted multiple times, but I can't seem to get the 20.3 software update. I have also tried restarting the premier 4 to see if that helped.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

why no upgrade program?

Mon, 11/25/2013 - 02:44
Why no upgrade program to upgrade with little to no fee for the romeo box I want? They did this for other upgrades.

The Walking Dead - "Dead Weight" 11/24/2013

Mon, 11/25/2013 - 00:01
I spent a lot of time being very confused in this episode. It came clear at the end but who killed the camp (If it was the Guv how did he do it silently), why was it taking so long for dead people to turn, why did the Guv kill Martinez and what did he say just before doing it, why did they leave ? Why did they return ?

It made sense at the end, and having evil Guv back was equally good and disappointing, but I got lost along the way.

Really shocked that they killed off Brian. But from what I can read it looks like it's for real.

where to find bonjour for win XP

Sun, 11/24/2013 - 20:52
I installed tivo desktop on my laptop (win 7 home premium) a couple of years back and kind of remember having to select bonjour over beacon from the desktop settings.

When I went to install tivo desktop 2.8.3 on my winXP desktop, I keep getting a 'Bonjour is required for tivo desktop to work. Try restarting....or re-enable the service in Control Panel -> Admin. Tools ->Services. error.

restarting does not help, and bonjour is not listed in 'Services'...though beacon is.

any ideas on where to find bonjour, and where tivo is going to look for it?

Roamio questions

Sun, 11/24/2013 - 19:18
I've had a ReplayTV DVR for years - It finally died. I also have a Centon InfiniTV USB and an Echo. I've experienced a lot of problems with poor recording quality and WMC crashes (lost tuners probably a lost USB comm problem) also the Ceton requires a tuning adapter with my cable provider (Brighthouse central Florida). Does the Roamio require a tuning adapter when used with a cable card? Can I record the output of the Roamio (all the cable channels are record once locked).

Roamio upgrade on RCN cable

Sun, 11/24/2013 - 17:45
If swapping your cablecard from your old Tivo to the new one on RCN, you only need to re-pair it. You can do it yourself online without calling at the link below.

Just change the location in the upper left corner of the page to your location.

Fix Tivo.com/activate

Sun, 11/24/2013 - 16:55
When is Tivo going to ever fix this link?:confused:

I bought a used Tivo off of Ebay last year and tried to activate it at that time and the link didn't work.

This was verified by a senior forum member and,yet,a csr on live chat wasn't aware of any issues.Not a good way to do business.

Today,I thought I'd try it again(since I'm planning to done my sat service soon) and it STILL doesn't work!

How about getting this web service fixed!?:mad:

Why is my Tivo iPhone app always disconnecting

Sun, 11/24/2013 - 16:30
For the life of me I can't figure out why the Tivo app on my iphone, ipad etc keeps disconnecting me every time I try to use it. Starts off fine but after a couple of minutes get the circle of death.

Doesn't matter what ios device I use, get "Tivo is not connected to internet, try again later".

Very frustrating!
