The self righteous Docs get on my nerves. I hope they don't win.

why no upgrade program?

Mon, 11/25/2013 - 02:44
Why no upgrade program to upgrade with little to no fee for the romeo box I want? They did this for other upgrades.

The Walking Dead - "Dead Weight" 11/24/2013

Mon, 11/25/2013 - 00:01
I spent a lot of time being very confused in this episode. It came clear at the end but who killed the camp (If it was the Guv how did he do it silently), why was it taking so long for dead people to turn, why did the Guv kill Martinez and what did he say just before doing it, why did they leave ? Why did they return ?

It made sense at the end, and having evil Guv back was equally good and disappointing, but I got lost along the way.

Really shocked that they killed off Brian. But from what I can read it looks like it's for real.

where to find bonjour for win XP

Sun, 11/24/2013 - 20:52
I installed tivo desktop on my laptop (win 7 home premium) a couple of years back and kind of remember having to select bonjour over beacon from the desktop settings.

When I went to install tivo desktop 2.8.3 on my winXP desktop, I keep getting a 'Bonjour is required for tivo desktop to work. Try restarting....or re-enable the service in Control Panel -> Admin. Tools ->Services. error.

restarting does not help, and bonjour is not listed in 'Services'...though beacon is.

any ideas on where to find bonjour, and where tivo is going to look for it?

Roamio questions

Sun, 11/24/2013 - 19:18
I've had a ReplayTV DVR for years - It finally died. I also have a Centon InfiniTV USB and an Echo. I've experienced a lot of problems with poor recording quality and WMC crashes (lost tuners probably a lost USB comm problem) also the Ceton requires a tuning adapter with my cable provider (Brighthouse central Florida). Does the Roamio require a tuning adapter when used with a cable card? Can I record the output of the Roamio (all the cable channels are record once locked).

Roamio upgrade on RCN cable

Sun, 11/24/2013 - 17:45
If swapping your cablecard from your old Tivo to the new one on RCN, you only need to re-pair it. You can do it yourself online without calling at the link below.

Just change the location in the upper left corner of the page to your location.

Fix Tivo.com/activate

Sun, 11/24/2013 - 16:55
When is Tivo going to ever fix this link?:confused:

I bought a used Tivo off of Ebay last year and tried to activate it at that time and the link didn't work.

This was verified by a senior forum member and,yet,a csr on live chat wasn't aware of any issues.Not a good way to do business.

Today,I thought I'd try it again(since I'm planning to done my sat service soon) and it STILL doesn't work!

How about getting this web service fixed!?:mad:

Why is my Tivo iPhone app always disconnecting

Sun, 11/24/2013 - 16:30
For the life of me I can't figure out why the Tivo app on my iphone, ipad etc keeps disconnecting me every time I try to use it. Starts off fine but after a couple of minutes get the circle of death.

Doesn't matter what ios device I use, get "Tivo is not connected to internet, try again later".

Very frustrating!

Comcast on-demand up updated...

Sun, 11/24/2013 - 16:21
Browsing on the Tivo last night, in the Xfinity on-demand, found they have updated it with the functionality for "buying" movies.

The prices range all the way up to $22... for Curse of Chucky of all things, most HD movies are in the high teens $. SD is about $5 less. There's a couple of "weeks before dvd' titles Fast & Furious 6, Red 2, and a grand total of seven! tv shows that are $3 an episode (HD)


Anyway, Im not so sure its a good idea "buying" movies on there, since if you ever change providers, move to the many areas where the TIVO on-demand app isnt supported/activated/whatever or if they someday decided to kill the tivo on-demand functionality, we'd have no way to play these movies.

Roamio upgrade on Fios

Sun, 11/24/2013 - 15:42
I think it's time to retire my six year-old TiVo HD in favor of a Roamio Plus. At the moment I have both the TiVo HD (w/ mcard) and a Verizon HD DVR in two different rooms. I'm thinking that I'll upgrade in the following way:

Keep the TiVo HD and Roamio in the same room for a while, until we finish watching the old shows on the TiVo HD.

Sell the HD box on ebay (it has a lifetime sub) and use the proceeds to get a Mini. Replace the Verizon HD DVR with the Mini.

I wonder if any other Verizon Fios users know if I can move my existing mcard (it's about a year old) to the Roamio and then call verizon to get it paired with the new DVR. Has anyone been successful with this approach?

Anyone watch it?

My wife and I watched it but it was pretty late last night. Maybe I just wasn't in the mood but I really didn't laugh much at all. I can't quite put my finger on it but he just seemed off in his setup and delivery.

I haven't seen his more famous special (Himself??) in years but I seem to remember it very funny.

A heartfelt thanks

To the TCF Elves that have made this tough time in my life a bit better.

Sound problems Roamio Plus

Sun, 11/24/2013 - 13:37
- No menu sounds when in the top menus or when using DVR picture control button (FF,REW,PAUSE). I have sound when at the settings menu.

- When switching from Netflix back to Live TV the sound is just static. I found to fix the problem I have to go the settings menu and then the sound is fine. ( no settings option are changed. Just going to the settings menu fixes the problem)

- Once in a while when FF a show the sound while go into a loop, playing the same clip over and over. That is also fixed by going to the settings menu and then back to the show.



Has anyone else seen these problems and does anyone have a fix.

Browse & Buy Movie Tickets App Gone?

Sun, 11/24/2013 - 12:53
Browse & Buy Movie Tickets....nice little TiVo feature that I use about once a month when I want to see what's playing at the local theaters (without having to go to a PC or use a small screen phone app).

To my surprise it's gone when I went to use it today. Did a search here and wasn't able to find any mention of it. Searched TiVo and found this...

"As of September 26, 2013, this app is no longer available on TiVo DVRs. To browse and buy movie tickets, please visit Fandango.com."

:(

To be honest I don't frequent the forums here as much as I used to...was this just something everyone saw coming...or no one cared about?

i told myself my Premiere where fine...

Sun, 11/24/2013 - 12:36
Then i started reading how much you guys where talking up the speed of the HDUI.

Then i went to best buy last night and used it and holy crap you where not lying.

Then i bought it and a mini today to sell 2 Premieres.

so thanks for helping me spend more money :)
