Problems Streaming AWAY from home

Mon, 01/20/2014 - 21:30
I've been using TiVo Stream for about 3 months. Works great streaming to my iPad WITHIN my home and also works great downloading recorded shows for airplane travel.

Streaming away from my home network is a whole different story. I've yet to have a great experience with it. Most of the time the picture just freezes and / or won't play at all.

Anybody else having any particular good or bad experienced steaming away from your home network?

It's also incredibly disappointing that I'm not able to stream to a PC or MAC using a Web Browser.

I welcome any thoughts and/or suggestions. Thanks in advance.

Mon, 01/20/2014 - 19:50
This is one day early, but wanted to give a heads up on something in the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly:

"Set the DVR to run long. You don't want to miss the show's last 30 seconds."

This will be the final episode until April.

Revolution - Season 2 Thread *spoilers*

Mon, 01/20/2014 - 13:16
OK, it seems that those few of us still watching this show are too timid to start a new episode each week, yet people still keep discussing it in the older episode threads. So here is the place to discuss the rest of S2.

Everything that happened up through Mi Dos Padres (OAD 1/15/2014) is fair game right now. And as additional episodes air, those can be discussed as well.

My thoughts: I'm very intrigued by what's going on with Aaron, Grace, and Priscilla. I definitely want to see where that goes.

The stuff with Monroe and his son is boring, but hopefully now that they've escaped, that will change. I found it odd that the Mexican cartel boss saw them escaping but then didn't chase them or send any henchmen after them. I guess once Monroe, Miles and crew defeated all the henchmen in that fight, that gave them free passage to leave? :confused:

Still don't care about Tom and Julia, but I am intrigued about what the "Patriots" seem to be doing, so the tie between the new government in D.C. and what's going on in Willoughby is still somewhat interesting.

And let me say again: I'm glad the story from S1 about turning the power back on is over. That was week after week of stupidity. Now we just get to see a world where power is off the table and that makes for a better show, IMO.

Did anyone find it strange how many current/past pop culture references there were in the most recent episode. Given that this show takes place at least 15 years in the future, and none of that pop-culture stuff has been present in the world during the interim, it seemed very strange for people to be using those references. I wish someone would have hung a lantern on it by saying something like, "Nice timely reference there, Father Time."

Shameless "My Oldest Daughter" 1/19/14 **SPOILERS**

Mon, 01/20/2014 - 12:19
WOW, so far a great new season. There were two scenes where I had a real good laugh. The first was when the Dr. tells Veronica she having triplets making a total of 4 children she and Kevin will have to take care of. And the bar is not as profitable as he thought it was.

The second LOL scene for me was when Lip offered himself for sex to a girl from his neighborhood and she majorly turned him down. So then he had sex with the chubby girl and her breasts were hitting him in the face. Priceless!!!

Note to Fiona: DO NOT SCREW UP your new relationship!! You now have a good paying job with health benefits for you AND your family. You're a natural salesperson and could do really well. So put up with you boss/boyfriend's idiosyncrasies and try to have a more normal life!

Note to Debbie: BE CAREFULL of what you're getting yourself into. You may be moving too fast!! (I'm surprised her "boyfriend" didn't freak out when she told him she was only 13. Depending on what happens next he could be committing statutory rape!)


Netflix Error aip-701

Mon, 01/20/2014 - 11:51
My Premiere XL has the latest Netflix (HTML5 with support for profiles). I'm able to browse through titles, but when I select a title to play, it starts to load and then fails with the error message "We're having trouble playing this title right now. Please try again later or select a different title. aip-701"

This has been going of for a couple of weeks. I've tried rebooting. I've tried signing out of Netflix and signing back on. I've tried using a friend's Netflix account. I've rebooted my router. I've tried connecting the TiVo directly to my cable modem. I've tried using a different ISP. Nothing has worked so far. I've called TiVo Support and Netflix Support, and neither could help. Does anyone have any other suggestions?

stream live between 2 tivos

Mon, 01/20/2014 - 10:55
I think its kinda odd Tivo doesnt do this? Why cant i stream live between 2 tivos?

Going back to satellite... Maybe...

Mon, 01/20/2014 - 10:09
Just curious what a fair price is for a roamio 6 tuner at @ 150 hours. And a mini. The roamio is under contract if that effects the price?

Tivo Stream just a gimmick

Mon, 01/20/2014 - 09:19
Why do we need to pay $130 to stream our shows? Is this just another money making gimmick like the "Home Media Option" for $99? in other words, why do we need to purchase what in essence is an overpriced "dongle" that tells the Tivo its okay to stream its shows? Why couldn't they just enable this feature in a software update like they did with the roamio plus? Its because they like to nickel and dime you to death. "Oh, you need to buy a 'license' to use this feature," and "You need to subscribe to the 'service' for your DVR to work." Believe me people, as much as I LOVE the TiVo interface, Im not stupid. The hardware is capible of doing this all on its own. Today, its a hardware dongle to "enable streaming" But tomorrow, its going to be something else. Maybe they will take away outputs for normal TV's, leaving only HDMI for the rich people and make us normal folks buy "adapters" to hook up the new units. So once again, anybody at TiVo wanna share what the scheme is this time?

Premiere 4TB DIY

Mon, 01/20/2014 - 09:18
Can I use JMFS to Copy/Expand/Supersize my stock 2TB Premiere XL4 drive to a new larger 4TB drive (WD AV-GP WD40EURX), or is there some sort of 3TB limit for DIY upgrades (despite Weaknees selling their own 4TB single-drive upgrade)?

Note that Premiere XL4 is running OS 20.3.8.

Teach me about TiVo and Wifi like I'm in 3rd grade

Mon, 01/20/2014 - 08:57
I've disconnected my Wifi router while I work out computer issues.

Last night, I started transferring shows from the main TiVo to bedroom TiVo, and then I remembered I had WiFi disconnected. It transferred 5 shows anyway.

My main TiVo shows that it is connected to Wifi with an excellent signal. How can that be when the Router is not plugged in to my Brighthouse box, only to power?

When I unplug power to the router, wifi is gone.

My iPad doesn't get WiFi while router disconnected. And Tivo doesn't update while Router down.

I guess I don't understand WiFi at all.

Please, can someone splain to me?

Series 3 has frequent chirping

Mon, 01/20/2014 - 07:10

I have a series 3 with 160Gb + 1Tb WD Expander.
The set is 4 years old.
About 2 months ago, we started hearing chirps in the audio, when the tv station switched to ads or returned to the program.
Sometimes the chirps occurred when replaying the section where it occurred live, though not always.
Along with these chirps came the odd freezing of the picture.
Changing channel or fast forward, relieved the freeze.
Most of these occurrences have been on channel 9; we watch the cricket.
I've read a few of the threads relating to the chirps, but cannot determine any resolution.
Some say hard drive and I will check out the difference without the expander later.
Some say motherboard, chipsets, cmos battery, etc.
Has anyone encountered similar problems to mine and obtained a fix?

Roamio wth an evaluation service level and missing apps

Mon, 01/20/2014 - 00:25
I purchased a TiVo from an employee who was given one as part of their employee benefit who then sold it to me. The unit works fine, but one thing I have noticed is that the software installed on it is version:


The INIT at the end is not normal to my knowledge. I also still do not have the Opera or Moviefone apps on my unit. I was hoping someone here had some ideas or any advice on what to do? I haven't called TiVo technical support yet since they probably won't be much help.


Verizon FIOS routers......... automatically enabled for MOCA, yes or no?

Sun, 01/19/2014 - 21:53
I have verion FIOS internet and cable TV service.

Last year i started digging into the possibility of establishing MOCA in my house.

At that time, the FIOS tech support person told me that the router that thry provided to me(one of their new models) had the capability of being a MOCA bridge..... HOWEVER, she also told me that it was not possible to enable the MOCA functionality in the router. Perhaps it would be possible to do so at some future date.

So my question is..... did this change? I have heard chatter recently that FIOS routers areautomatically configured to serve as moca bridges now...... so therefore, no need to have a separate device added to the network to be the moca bridge.

Can someone here with knowledge please comment on this.



loses playback position, won't resume play if near live, repeatable

Sun, 01/19/2014 - 21:31
If I'm recording and watching a show which reaches the live position and I switch to playing another show and later come back my tivo won't resume play from the last postion, only from the beginning.

I found I can repeat this at will. Here's the sequence.

Play a show that is still recording, skip ahead to the live position or within some point close to live (had it fail from as far as 5-6 minutes behind). Let it keep playing from that point or hit pause.

Then hit the tivo button twice to get to myshows, select some other show, start playing it, after a few seconds, hit tivo twice, select the first show again, and only play is an option. I just repeated this 4 times.

I'm still looking for some sequence to break out of this, but the only time it worked correctly I had to skip back about 15 minutes from the live position to get it to resume properly (skipped back to the last tickmark).

I don't know if this fails on all types of shows or setups. In my case it was a football game that was set to record 1 1/2 hours extra and was about 2-3 hours into the game.

This occurs on my 4 tuner roamio.

(after running kmttg to see what it thought of this show, I clicked on the show, and it reported 4 times on the status of the show - after refreshing, it didn't do this and then the problem stopped on my tivo as well. So, now it's no longer repeatable on this show. All I can think of is I had resumed several times on this show before I noticed the problem the first time)

They started The Following early!!!

Sun, 01/19/2014 - 21:21
They dumped The OT entirely and started The Following at about 10:18 PM EST.

So you probably need to set up a recording of the repeat on the 27th.
