Watch recently aired network shows through my Tivo

Tue, 09/03/2013 - 00:03
Hi,

I just bought a Roamio and I really want to love it, but so far, I'm frustrated. One of the first things I want to do is just to watch network shows that have already aired on my Tivo. For example, I just missed 3 episodes of Big Brother. I can go to the CBS website on my laptop and watch those 3 episodes, for free. How do I do this on my tivo?

I see that I can pay for it through Amazon Prime, but why would I want to do that when I can get it free from their website?

Can anyone tell me how to watch this through my tivo?

Mini reboot in YouTube

Mon, 09/02/2013 - 22:44
Just got my Mini today and was using it to watch YouTube. It rebooted twice, once while browsing videos in my subscriptions and again when I pressed the TiVo button to exit YouTube. Is there an issue with YouTube or should I be concerned I got a bad device?

Picture-in-Picture - Technically Possible?

Mon, 09/02/2013 - 22:15
I'm sure I'm missing something obvious here but this first weekend of college football brought the idea to mind...

Is there any way that the multiple tuners present in the Roamio models could be utilized to permit viewing multiple channels simultaneously on the same screen? Obviously it would have to be supported by the software, but would the hardware permit this?

WTB: TiVo Stream

I've got the Roamio base model, looking for the Stream function. Get in touch if you have upgraded and are looking to unload one.

Transfer $6.95 MSD to a new Romeo base?

Mon, 09/02/2013 - 21:21
Been a longtime Tivo user. Been paying $6.95 (MSD) for my 2nd Tivo box. Had upgraded my S2 to a Premiere unit some time ago with this MSD. Wondering if I can do the same by transferring to a Romeo base unit.

tivo series 1 with ethernet card won't connect

Mon, 09/02/2013 - 20:53
I have been a TiVo consumer since they came out.. I had 4 of them at one time. I still have my orginal series 1 with lifetime subscription since the beginning. the modem died on it, so as an alternative I installed a Ethernet adaptor and set it up with a bridge, and it would connect via my wireless network. Its been working like this for years but now all of a sudden it won't connect . I checked my dlink bridge and it appears to have died. So I setup an old router and set it up as a wifi bridge. It works, as I can plug in any latop with no wifi card enabled and it connects fine. I also replaced the Ethernet cable.. but it still won' t connect. That leaves me to think it could be the nic. I don't know what my options are.. is there another way to get this old TiVo to connect ? When its trying to connect it says service unavailable. So I don't know if its them or my device.

I would appreciate any comments or suggestions.

Looking to come back to Tivo after stops at DirectTV and Dish

Mon, 09/02/2013 - 19:56
I have pretty much decided to come back after my commitment ends, but I was wondering... Is there a real difference in the Roamio vs Premeire UI. I know the Roamy is faster but the price is the premier is significantly less. I asked Tivo the question through chat and all they gave me were hardware specs.

Is there any difference in the UI itself? This question is especially for folks that have done the upgrade.... Can you articulate why its worth it? I am coming directly from dish. I imagine the speed of the premier will actually be faster than what we are currently using.

Replace HDD in Plus

Mon, 09/02/2013 - 19:54
I know we have a thread for HDD questions but it is too long to dig in to find the answer to a simple question..

Has anybody tried swapping out the drive in a Roamio Plus for a larger one?

Lineup Issue page does not work

Mon, 09/02/2013 - 19:54
Since the Tivo website redesign the lineup issue page does not work for me. Mediacom did their digital upgrade here and I've tried three times to submit the changes over the last two weeks. When I hit submit I get sent to the "UH OH! Looks like you're lost." page and I don't get the auto-generated ack e-mail as I have in the past. Has anyone else been able to use it since the new site went live?

MoCA clarification

Mon, 09/02/2013 - 19:46
Please confirm what I believe I can accomplish. I have a TIVO Roamio Plus. I have no wired internet where I want to place it. I believe that MoCA is supposed to provide that function but needs to be set up in a room with both wired internet and coax. Is that correct? Then if I take it to the room with no wired internet but coax, I can stream via MoCA over coax? I've tried but haven't been successful in the setup but I think an earlier post addressed my problem which is that my cable TV and cable modem are provided by different providers. Before I start crawling around to find my TV input, are my assumptions correct?

Thank you - Lynne

Recorded suggestions disappearing

Mon, 09/02/2013 - 19:36
I've noticed several times where a suggestion is deleted as soon as it finishes recording from my Roamio Pro. Note that this doesn't happen with every suggestion recorded. FYI, my hard drive has 99% free space. I've never seen this behavior with my XL4. Anyone else seen this?

New Tivos - are they 100% wifi?

Mon, 09/02/2013 - 19:36
Do the new Tivos work completely wifi now? I don't use wifi at home. Everything is hard wired. Only one Tivo working now and think it's ready to go.

Default to Live TV?

Mon, 09/02/2013 - 19:30
Is there a way for the Mini to automatically go to Live TV when I turn on the TV? Instead of having to press Live tv. I don't mind if it takes one of the Roamio's tuner permanently.

Harmony Smart Control

Mon, 09/02/2013 - 19:16
Anyone using the Harmony Smart Control with Roamio? I have to place the Harmony Hub fairly close to the Roamio. And often times, there is a delay with pressing the key or I have to press it a few times. I was using it with a PremiereXL and didn't have any of these issues at all.

Considering TiVo?

Mon, 09/02/2013 - 18:24
I currently have Fios with 1 DVR and 3 cable boxes and considering the new Roamio Pro. I have some questions if someone can help.

My main TV room with the DVR is not near my FIOS wireless router, but another TV with a cable box is right next to the router. Can I plug the TiVo Pro into the router there and use a mini and have all the functions of that box on my main TV through the mini? Or would I be better off buying a MOCA and installing it up there and using the TiVo Pro in my main TV room?

Would it be wise to replace all my Fios equipment with a Roamio Pro and mini's? Is there anything I lose?

Last question, can I access my local channels when out of town through the Roamio so as to watch my local sports teams, news etc.?

Thanks

DNLA Support for Roamio and Mini

Mon, 09/02/2013 - 18:09
TiVo needs to add native DNLA support for both the Roamio and Mini. There are clearly a number TiVo customers that what this supported and have had to rely on 3rd party products like pytivo and streambaby. DNLA simply needs to be natively supported.

Channel Not Autorized

Mon, 09/02/2013 - 18:08
My Roamio Pro did not record Breaking Bad last night. I checked the history, and the reason given was "Channel Not Authorized." The channel in question is 479 -AMCPHD. I can watch that channel live without a problem and it is checked as a channel that I receive. I have been recording this channel on my TiVo HD for years. What would cause the Roamio to label it "Not Authorized" and not record it?

TiVo Search -scheduled maintenance

Mon, 09/02/2013 - 17:48
I have trying to access Tivo search for several days and keep getting the message that our systems are currently unavailable,PLease check back later! ... in a cheery tone. The top of the window says scheduled maintenance. Seems suspect that this maintenance has been going on for days. Is anyone else seeing this when trying to use Tivo Search or is it just me? I have restarted the unit - no love.
