I broke down and picked up a new Plus unit today from Best Buy. I hold you all personally responsible for triggering the UMF on this new TiVo. ;)
Install, Set-up & Pairing went as smoothly as possible, harvesting the M-Card from my XL4 unit. 6 tuners right out of the blocks.
Only delay is MRS functionality between the Plus and the XL4. TiVo reports "up-to" 72 hours before the media access key is released to the new unit. How odd; seems like should be instantaneous. I would have liked to move over my XL4 SPs and recordings this afternoon - but whatever.
UI looks and performs great! Lag was my only complaint from the S2s, S3 and XL4. Looks like a very nice improvement!
I did search... Why is there and extension cable with the slide remote bluetooth dongle? If it's bluetooth shouldn't the signal be wireless and omni-directional? What scenario do you need to extend the dongle (so to speak)?? I'm getting one soon and just wonder..
well I guess it's just for if you have weak signals?
I'm trying to connect a Slingbox to my Roamio Plus and can't get past finding the right remote since the Roamio is not yet in the Slingbox directory. I've tried Series 3, Premiere, Premiere 4 plus a slew of others. The remotes that come up are a dull gray in color and none of the buttons work. I have the IR devices to the left of the TIVO logo per another thread.
Can anyone provide assistance? I would like to be able to watch these recorded programs from my iPad and other computers.
Thanks - Lynne Davies
Will include the peanut remote and power cable it came with, as well as the original 320 GB drive it came with which you can keep as a backup. Will throw in an hdmi cable if that makes a difference to you.
$400 or best offer
I do really like my new Roamio and think it is by far the best TiVo to date, but with the extra tuners and 3TB HD I am now getting so many recordings I will never be able to watch everything. :D
I have well over 100 sp's and before with only 2 tuners must have had a lot of conflits so I could keep up with everything. Now I have pages and pages and pages of recordings.
Check out what Tivo now sells for the Mini and other DVR's not sure how new or old it is, pretty useful. The roamio of course uses RF now, but for those of us still rockin older remotes to use with Receivers etc, this can come in handy.
Well, I don't get FXX so thank god for the internet. I thought this episode was beyond hilarious. Typical Dennis being a d*ck and the gang was funny as ever. Dee's comedy routine was priceless. I really didn't see that end coming, very funny twist. This show continues to be out there and just wrong. I need to watch it again to see if the plot actually makes any sense. What a start to a short season (13 episodes). Shame on FX for moving it to a channel one tier up on most cable networks.
Joke's on Dee!
I have TiVo stream set up and working and it works great. The specs say that TiVo stream supports 1080i and 1080p. What I can't figure out is if I buy a lightning to HDMI adapter, what resolution will go to the TV.
My goal is to be able to take a TV out on the deck and rather than run a cable out to it and a cable box, I hope to use the iPad over wireless and just buy the lightning to HDMI adapter.
Just don't want to drop $50 on the adapter if it's not capable.
I searched the forum on the topic of creating folders in the Tivo "Now Playing" list. However, most of the stuff that I found was a few years old and it did not really answer my question.
Here is the deal......
I have a lot of videos on my computer which my Tivo Premiere is capable of playing just fine.
These videos did not originally come from my Tivo Premiere. But the Tivo can play them.
When I transfer these video files onto my Tivo, I would LIKE the ability to create a folders to put them in. However, I do not know how to do this. As it stands currently, the Tivo lists each individual file one by one by one in the "Now Playing" list.
Lifetime TivoHD with 1TB HD UPGRADE (not 2 as title suggests) , Updated Prom
Goes on EBAY next week.
Can Roamio stream to an un-Sub'd Premier or S3?
I would like to have the ability to assign a tuner to a Tivo Mini in the Roamio. Roamio supports DTA but I have a very specific functionality that requires me to have a dedicated tuner to the Mini. I understand I am giving it up and can't record anything on that tuner.
It's 13 minutes long, but well worth it for fans of the show.
If you're not relatively current on Breaking Bad, it could have some spoilers.
If a bidder has the TSN from the unit, is there any danger that they can get my personal information from TiVo?
I just bought and setup a new Roamio Pro, moving my XL4 to the bedroom. After connecting the XL4, I found that the remote will not cause anything to happen - in other words, when I press buttons on the remote, the amber circle appears on the XL4, showing that a signal is being received, but no action is taken. I am stuck on the "My Shows" spot on the TiVo Central screen. I am pretty sure that the problem lies with the XL4, not the remote, because I get the same response from my Harmony One remote that I had been using to control the XL 4.
Please help! I cannot even get to the CableCard Pairing screen to call Comcast!
Hi, my parents pretty much only watch one local channel (26-1).
I connected a Comcast coaxial cable directly to the Seiki 22" LED TV, which has a digital tuner.
I did a channel scan and it picks up channel 26-1 and my parents are able to watch the channel.
We canceled Comcast (no more Comcast service), but are able to pick up channel 26-1 using the coaxial cable.
Now I am trying to connect a Tivo Series 2.
I connected the Comcast coaxial cable to the top coaxial connection on the back of the tivo. I also connected the red/white/yellow cables from the TV to the back of the tivo.
I ran guided setup using the various options of "antenna", "cable", "satellite" and I don't get any video, only black screen.
Any ideas? Thank you.
Here is my set up.
I have 2 XL4's, one Tivo HD, and 1 Roamio Pro. They all connect to each other, to the network and handle room to room transfers well.
I just bought a new Roamio from TiVo.com It was delivered on Tuesday. I installed it on Tuesday, activated my new unit on TiVo.com, and paired the cable card on Tuesday. Waiting 24 hours, Wednesday night, I forced a connection on all my units and afterwards I restarted all units. I then went on TiVo.com and used the season pass manager to transfer passes to the new Roamio. (it worked great).
1 XL4 wired connection (signal strength 100%)
1 XL4 connected wirelessly (signal strength 82%)
1 Roamio connected wirelessly (signal strength 77%)
New Roamio connected wirelessly (signal strength 24%)
The new Roamio can "see" the other TiVo's in the network under "My Shows", but they are "orange exclamation point" "!"... and gives me a "cant connect c423 error". I called TiVo and they forced a connection to all my units on their end, and said to call back in 30 minutes. I went to sleep.
10 hours later - still the same problem. Before I call tech support, does anyone have a suggestion on how to resolve this?
I just checked my wireless signal on the Roamio settings - it is at 24 % (marginal). even though its 3 feet from the router ?? Would that be the cause of the issue?
I know I can use 2 Minis with one Roamio. But is it possible to use 2 Roamios with 1 Mini?
