SP for New showing old Episodes to record in To DO

Fri, 11/08/2013 - 09:18
I was looking through To Do List to see if new show Almost Human was set to record with wish list and setup SP.
I noticed several episodes of Hot In Cleveland in the To Do List.
However, these are episodes from 2010 (original air date) and not marked as New.
I checked the SP and I have it set for New only.
These episodes are a week away so it may correct itself.

Anyone else seeing this issue?

I have a RoamioPro if that makes a difference.

Can ping ethernet even though no cable connected

Fri, 11/08/2013 - 08:42
Just got my new Roamio Pro set up last night on MoCA, it downloaded the fall service update, and I got BHN to pair the Cisco CableCARD (PKM803 with 1.5.3_F.p.0601 - we'll see how that goes). Everything is working great.

I noticed, however, when checking my router, that the Roamio's ethernet MAC appears as "connected" to the router even though currently it's set as MoCA only and there is no ethernet cable plugged into the jack.

I can "ping" the ethernet address. If I try to access it via a browser, I get prompted for the login, but then get a "resource not found" error (if I connect via browser to the MoCA address I can access the web-based Now Playing).

Is this just a function/side effect of the internal MoCa+Ethernet bridge?

No 'all channels' view in guide on mini?

Fri, 11/08/2013 - 03:34
I don't usually spend much time in live tv on the mini... So this might be an old problem?

I was just in the guide, and tried to change the option (a) and set it to show all channels... And nothing changed. Favorites works, but 'my channels' and 'all' both show 'my channels'.

It just rebooted... I was watching something on netflix and it crashed n rebooted on me. :down:

Both the mini and the xl4 it's paired with are running 20.3.7

Series 2 on RCN freezing (not what you think!)

Thu, 11/07/2013 - 21:46
I can't imagine I'll find an answer to this, but at this point it's more of a curiosity question than anything else.

I've owned about eight Tivos, and I've had them apart practically down to the molecular level. My mom now has my old S2, and she's on RCN and is using an older cable box (DCT2500 I think) with a serial cable to change channels. It has worked like a champ.

She started to mention that some recordings were freezing - the video got stuck on the screen but the audio would continue, and sometimes it would come back after a few minutes. Other times it would continue to the end of the recording.

I know, I know... Failing hard drive, right? Or flaky power supply. Please stay with me for a moment.

I figured I'd get around to looking at it eventually, but in the meantime she acquired a hand-me-down Humax with a DVD recorder. Nice. She then had both Tivos hooked up in separate rooms, both on DCT2500s.

So as a fail safe, if she was recording something she really didn't want to miss she would schedule the same recording on BOTH Tivos instead of just the failing one.

So guess what? We discovered that when the recordings are hanging, BOTH TIVOS ARE DOING IT AT THE SAME TIME! She had a bad recording, decided to watch it on the Humax, and it had hung at the same point. She's been able to confirm multiple instances of this happening over the past few months. I also had her transfer a bad recording to her PC with Tivo Desktop, and it hangs at the same place when watching it there too.

So I'm really stumped. Can't be failing units, it must be something in the signal that is causing this to happen. She has never observed this on live TV through Tivo, though it could just be by chance, nor has she seen it on a third TV with no Tivo, just a cable box (not a 2500).

The only even vaguely similar case I could find on the net was just one Tivo and it was a bad signal splitter. I guess not many folks have two units connected the same way!

I welcome any ideas, though I'm really not expecting a fix at this point. It's more of a technological curiosity for me. Thanks!

TV Eats Itself

TV Eats Itself

Welcome to the end of the Golden Era
By Andy Greenwald on November 6, 2013

"It's good to be in something from the ground floor. I came too late for that and I know. But lately, I'm getting the feeling that I came in at the end. The best is over."

Tony Soprano said these words in 1999, midway through the pilot of The Sopranos. He was right about his place in the history of the Mafia, but not in the history of TV. The Sopranos proved to be the beginning of what came to be known as a “Golden Age” of television, a twin flowering of creativity and technology that elevated a formerly disrespected medium1 into a national cultural obsession….


Tivo Stream - do I need it for non-Roamio Tivos?

Thu, 11/07/2013 - 16:25
In my home environment, I have three Premiere XLs, one Premiere XL4 and one S3 that will be replaced by a Roamio Pro in the next few months. All of the Tivos are talking on MoCa, either by external or integrated adapters.

I know the Roamio Pro has an integrated Stream, so it's obvious to me that it will push out content on that Tivo via the Stream.

Question is, will the Roamio Pro stream out content that was recorded on it directly or would anything I recorded on any other Tivo that I transferred to the Roamio Pro be viewable via the integrated Stream? If that's the case, then I wouldn't need a standalone Stream for the Premiere units and can just wait until I get the Roamio Pro.

I think I already know the answer though it made sense to ask and double-check.

S3 keeps dying...

Thu, 11/07/2013 - 16:18
Hello, I have a 5 year old S3 HD. In the last few weeks it has started to go dormant, just a black screen no matter what button you push. You can see the clock and that's it. No season passes recorded, just nothing. It will stay that way (for days) until rebooted. I reboot it by unplugging/replugging and it works fine.

I've been reading through the posts but I don't see anything quite the same.

Power supply? Hard Drive?

Thanks, Mike :confused:

Track Recordings Watched/unwatched

Thu, 11/07/2013 - 15:53
I have a RoamioPro and we record a lot more than we watch until the off season when we can usually catch up.
I am worried that if I have a hard drive failure, I will not know what I have/have not already watched.

I would like it if Tivo could keep a list of recorded and watched shows in my account at Tivo.com instead of on the local Tivo because of the HD failure concern.
To keep the data somewhat manageable, I would even except they keep a current list of what's in my "My Shows" list and "Recently Deleted" folder.

It shouldn't be difficult for Tivo to retrieve the data on a nightly basis.

I am sure there may be concerns with privacy, but an option to disable would solve that issue.


Wireless AND Ethernet?

Thu, 11/07/2013 - 15:21
Does anyone know if I can use both Ethernet (for faster transfers to/from other TiVos, guide data, etc.) and wireless (for iOS streaming?)

So far it appears that I have to choose one or the other on my Roamio Plus and can't get both to work at the same time. I really want the best of both worlds, especially once I add my TiVo Mini, which will be on Cat 5 since I don't have coax running to the room where the Mini will be going.

Anyone address this issue yet? Thanks.


map the SD channels to HD channel

Thu, 11/07/2013 - 15:04
Would really like to see the mapping of SD channels to their HD channel version. With large hard drives and multiple tuners, I'm sure the majority of people do not record SD programming when there is an HD version of the channel. Also, with hundreds of channels on the lineup, it is hard to remember which channels are HD and SD. It would be good to know if you hit a channel that it will automatically tune to the HD channel.

how does the season pass work?

Thu, 11/07/2013 - 15:02
I have setup season passes for a number of shows. I'm kinda new to Tivo although I used a Directivo years ago. Anyway, I have my season passes to record just "NEW" programs. However, in the To Do lists, it lists a number of shows that are days old and will record them. Next to the show is the word "New" They are not new airings. They are repeats. Is this a Tivo problem? I have run guided set up again. Same issue. On the other hand, is it recording all episodes from the current season? Trying to figure out how it works.

Stupid Tivo just plain stupid!

Thu, 11/07/2013 - 15:00
My bad I did not turn off suggestions when I installed the new Roamio plus a few days ago however if this is the way suggestions work then it is just plain stupid,. Tue night I had 3 shows recording at the same time. Got up Wed morning and a show was missing. I also kept noticing the red recording light on weird times of day. I am looking through the my shows area and notice down at the bottom the folder with 54 shows. Looking through this folder I find all tivo suggestions and 3 of them recorded at the same time my missing show was on,. I was watching another channel so that left 5 tuners. Nice programming Tivo. Your suggestions kicked my season pass show off while some junk you think I am interested in records,. 24 suggestions were recorded on Tuesday. There shall be no more! I wonder how many people ever use suggestions.

Old Shows that hold up well today.

Thu, 11/07/2013 - 14:41
What shows that you used to watch do you think would hold up well today? In other words don't feel dated. If they showed the show "as is" it would fit right in with today's series. Let's consider shows that FINISHED before the year 2000.

Roamio Pro Seattle?

Thu, 11/07/2013 - 14:22
Hello out there, I planning on buying a Roamio Pro and 4 Mini's here in the Seattle WA area. After reading the posts about issues with cards and firmware updates in other parts of the country I wanted to ask if there are any known issues locally. I want it to work on all tuners at the get go.

I currently have three reg. HD's and one Series 3 HD all with lifetimes. They all work fine but Comcast rapes you with outlet and card fees. I think I can get a break even point in about 2-3 years cost wise after selling my current units.

Is anybody running this configuration up here in the corner of the USA?

Thanks, Mike, Issaquah, WA :)

Why are Tivo.com and the Tivo app so bad?

Thu, 11/07/2013 - 14:03
I've been a fan of TiVo's hardware and UI for some time. Any time I switch providers, I find myself happy when I switch back to a TiVo unit. Although it's not a perfect experience, I have always felt like everything "feels" right and just makes sense.

On the other hand, I have nothing but disgust and hatred for the experience of trying to interact with the Tivo.com website to or the Tivo app to do basic DVR tasks. Why are these so bad?

Tivo.com is unbelievably sluggish and strange. The website just crawls no matter what I do or where I do it from (home, work). Searches often don't find programs. The grid is a bit better lately (it used to be, by far, the worst implementation of a TV grid I have ever seen), but generally behaves oddly and seems to be possessed by a spirit that does the opposite of what I want half the time. Sports programs are often mysteriously absent from the grid and search results even though they appear in both on my actual Tivo.

The Tivo app would seem to be better, except that literally nothing I have ever set to record from the app ever made its way to my Tivo in a timely fashion. It takes days to make it to my Tivo when it does make it, but usually it doesn't make it there at all. The command to record something just disappears into whatever time warp also has my socks -- even when I am on the same network as my TiVo. It is so bad that I deleted the app months ago and never regretted it. I'd rather use the website because, though it is an aggravating experience, at least my Tivo actually records things when I tell it to via the website.

What gives? Am I just incredibly unlucky, or is this the experience that everyone else has too?

Is there something I need to do to fix these problems? I have an S3 with lifetime service, if that matters.

Given recent price increases, I am thinking of jumping ship to a satellite provider again. I honestly expect that the experience would be as good or better now on a competing product. Maybe the day-to-day navigation on the unit won't be as good, but I seriously doubt any other company can get away with such an atrocious app or such poor website performance/experience.

iPad without iTunes?

Thu, 11/07/2013 - 13:42
I know this is a little OT, but I'm getting an iPad mostly for using the Roamio Stream and have never owned any Apple product to date. Note that my daughters have iDevices and at some point I had to have iTunes running on my laptop and just hated that software. I kind of view that software as the TiVo equivalent of TiVo Desktop which I also don't like. So my question for you iOS gurus is these days can you run iPad without needing iTunes? If iTunes is just for backup purposes then is iCloud (or whatever it's called) enough with the free space you get by default? To get videos and music onto the iPad I'm pretty sure there are apps that can do that that don't require iTunes right? So I just need something to back up the OS (not the apps, music, or videos) in case of catastrophic failure, so iCloud should be sufficient right?
(Sorry if I'm using incorrect Apple terminology).

Is TiVO artifically slowing down Stream transfers?

Thu, 11/07/2013 - 13:14
I was looking at the Stream on my Roamio (http://<streamIP>:49152/sysinfo and randomly I was able to get an "Advanced" page to come up and found the bitrate set to 2240000, tried changing it but was unable to nor was I able to select the Override Bitrate see the (hopefully) attached image.
