App Temporarily Unavailable (V301)

Thu, 12/19/2013 - 04:48
So I get up early to watch my Top Chef. Then I look for Xfinity on demand to watch the Last chance kitchen. Well, the Xfinity app is not there:eek:. Neither is the netflick or hulu plus apps:rolleyes: So I search for the show, find it, press watch and get the message that the Xfinity app is temporarily unavailable:mad: So before we get any new apps, we have to lose the ones we already have? How long are the apps going to be gone?

v53 tuning problem. OTA, no cable card, no tuning adapter

Thu, 12/19/2013 - 04:21
I'm using a Roamio Basic with an over-the-air antenna. (no cable card. no tuning adapter)

I've recently started having problems with V53 errors a couple of channels. TiVo won't record on the channels, and when I try to tune to them manually I receive the message:
"Problem with the signal on this channel. Trying again. (V53)"

If I manually change the channel back and forth, and/or reset the TiVo, I can usually get the channels to tune in eventually, and then they work just fine. They are channels that I receive quite well with my OTA antenna, and I just started noticing this problem recently (after the latest update?). It's possible that the issue was there before, but I've only noticed it recently because the TiVo keeps missing recordings on some channels.

All of the other threads that I see referencing this problem seem to indicate that it is most likely related to things like tuning adapters and cable cards, but I do not have either of those items.

If anyone else is seeing this same behavior, or has any suggestions regarding how to resolve it, I would greatly appreciate it. Misery loves company. :-)

Can they destroy Queen's "We Will Rock You" any worse?

Are recordings made with a Roamio compatible with the HD DVR?

Can I delete folders?

Thu, 12/19/2013 - 00:21
Under the My Shows area, there are two folders I would like to go away

Suggested, and some AOL thing

I just want a simple to use list of my shows and nothing I do not need, I previously rid the area of other things, but these two are a mystery

Is there a set of directions??

Crackle HTML5 App Inquiry

Thu, 12/19/2013 - 00:14
Reached out to Crackle Support to see if an app is in the works or in existence. This message was left on Crackle's Facebook Support page.

Does Crackle have an HTML5 app available for devices or is it being developed? Tivo and Opera teamed up and installed Opera SDK 4.0 this enabled HTML5 ready to go. Today they launched on premiere and Roamio "Opera TV STore". The members of TiVoCommunity would love to see a Crackle App added.

Are Roamio HD recordings compatible with HD DVR??

Reactivated HD DVR and no HD???

Wed, 12/18/2013 - 23:28
I just reinstalled my HD DVR (Series 3) and I can't transfer HD shows from my Tivo DeskTop to my HD DVR because it says that my HD DVR is not HD.

hulu says network connection issue

Wed, 12/18/2013 - 22:38
I just signed up for the hulu plus 2 week trial.

Every show I try to watch gives me a dialog box with "We're sorry.... network issue...."

Is is just me? I know my network is working since I can use youtube etc. and it's all over the same IP that I'm using to post this message.

Hawaii Five-O

Wed, 12/18/2013 - 21:44
My wife and I wonder why Steve McGarret occasionally wears his white Navy uniform. We assume he is retired from the Navy so why still wear the uniform? Also, his girlfriend never wears her uniform now that she is retired.

Anyone know?

Romeio questions

Wed, 12/18/2013 - 21:04
Two questions about romeio

1. Will it stream movies that are on my computer?

2. Since the remote it RF will the tivo convert the signal to a IR blaster to control other equipment?

Tapatalk ads?

Wed, 12/18/2013 - 17:26
I paid for the ad free Tapatalk. I see ads at the bottom of pages after the last post on the page. What gives?

My video provider apps are missing -- Amazon, Xfinity---

Wed, 12/18/2013 - 16:06
I have a premiere series 4 HD Tivo and all of a sudden all of my video provider apps are all gone. I can't download movies from Amazon or Xfinity. I get this message "Amazon is currently unavailable. (V301) Please try again in a few minutes. This is been all day. I've tried cold reboot and forced connection but no success. I don't have the new update, I still have 20.3.1
Anyone have fix?


App Management

Wed, 12/18/2013 - 15:46
Though I love the Tivo Apps and would prefer to have as many apps as possible, I would like more control over which apps are visible and the ease of access to some apps.

My suggestion is to allow a small number of user specified apps to be made available on the ‘Now Playing” area of the Tivo Central screen. If utilizing the “Now Playing” area is not feasible, then it could be listed in the Tivo Central menu without having to go into the “Showcases & Apps” menu item. In either case, being able to assign one of the colored A-D buttons to an app for usewith in the Tivo Central screen would greatly improve the usability.

Parental Controls Toggle and Display Icon

Wed, 12/18/2013 - 15:19
I would like the ability to toggle on and off the Parental Controls within a Tivo unit (DVR or Mini). Additionally, I would like the lock icon on the TIVO home screen so I can quickly determine if the lock is on or off.

The use-case for this request mostly revolves around ending a Tivo session. Currently it takes several actions to turn off parental Controls. This is too many for some in my household. However, without turning off the controls, our child could easily start a new Tivo session without having the parental Controls enabled.

c501 error and "what to watch now"

Wed, 12/18/2013 - 14:28
I kept on getting a c501 error when trying to access "what to watch now" last night.

I inadvertently discovered a fix to my problem while looking for the Opera TV store: "Make a connection to the TiVo Service, and after it is complete go to TiVo Central and press THUMBS DOWN - THUMBS UP - PLAY - PLAY. (This will restart the UI).

Hope this helps someone else.

BHTV HTML5 APP Call out to Brighthouse

Wed, 12/18/2013 - 12:03
@BrightHouseCare Now @Tivo supports HTML5 it might be a good time to consider BHTV to digital subscribers. @Opera OperaTvStore @tivodesign

Last time I sent a tweet it was a few months later we received BHTV Desktop.I will compromise, but let's ditch the CableCard and un-necessary boxes and just adapt to working technology.

This might take time for them to consider, the current technology tied to BHTV is Silverlight it's encrypted at sign on for security reasons and as protection in place to prevent screen recorders from capturing the material. (Smart Move).

Back door codes for Mini?

Wed, 12/18/2013 - 11:56
I use the back door code to minimize the progress bar when paused on my XL4. But I cant seem to get it to work on the Mini. Is this correct? I am able to use the back door code on the Mini which gives the time and and elapsed time of the recording in the upper right hand corner.

Release IP

Wed, 12/18/2013 - 11:51
How do I force the roamio to release its IP address and get a new one from the router? I changed my router lease time and turned off the TiVo for a longer period (so the router stopped holding that IP for the TiVo), but the roamio pulled the old IP when powered back on.

Poor wireless signal

Wed, 12/18/2013 - 10:35
Hey guys
Just getting my roamio pro set up and I'm 20 feet away from the router with a 20% signal strength?

I've tried moving the router around just to see if it made a difference but it don't. It's fluctuating from 20 to 35% but will jump up to 40 on occasion.

I can take my laptop directly overtop of the roamio and still have an excellent signal so anything I'm missing?
