Audio Distortion on Pandora

Thu, 12/26/2013 - 15:11
Sometimes a restart will fix it. I also found the same problem on YouTube (Did not find it on any other apps, but would really like the issue with Pandora resolved - I use that fairly frequently, or did). This is the original Series 3 unit. Idea(s)?

NS-DXA2 Converter code?

Thu, 12/26/2013 - 14:58
First time back to the forum in many years... hopefully I'll get some help!

I'm trying to ditch TWC in favor of a converter box. I bought the Inisgnia NS-DXA2 thinking that it would be compatible with my Series 2. Since Tivo lists compatibility with NS-DXA1 on their website, I foolishly thought it would work. It doesn't.

I wonder if anyone has some input or knows of a working code/strategy?

Can't return the converter either... :roll eyes:

Thanks! What a great community.

Sons of Anarchy Season 6 - NO SPOILERS, PLEASE!!! I BEG YOU!!!

Thu, 12/26/2013 - 13:11
So based on many recommendation here, I binge watched Sons of Anarchy Seasons 1-5 on Netflix this past week.

It was awesome.

But now I want to watch Season 6, and Netflix doesn't have it!

Is there anyplace I can watch it free/cheap? Any idea when Netflix will have it?


Clearly, I have a problem. :o

Please help.

Thank you.

Turning on AV Receiver reboots TiVo

Thu, 12/26/2013 - 13:00
So here's an odd one. We have a Pioneer Elite AV receiver plugged into a power strip that plugs into 'Wall outlet 1'. Then we have a TiVo Roamio Plus plugged into a APC UPS that is itself plugged into 'Wall Outlet 2', approx 4' away from 'Wall Outlet 1'.

Sometimes, but not all the time, when I turn on the AV Receiver, the TiVo will power cycle (with the UPS giving a momentary beep).

Any idea (other than equipment malfunction) why this might be happening?

Hooking up Mini with Powerline internet connection

Thu, 12/26/2013 - 11:54
I'm wondering if y'all can help me. Here is the situation.

Just bought a mini. I also have a Roamio Plus.
Both are hooked to the internet through an internet cable to a powerline adapter. The powerline is working fine. Both have connected to Tivo Service successfully. When I go through guided set up it goes great until I get to choose the Tivo to connect the mini to. It shows my Roamio, but it is greyed out with a "no" sign next to it. I've tried power off resets on both boxes and had both connect to Tivo afterward, both success.

I called Tivo and the rep said that it might be a bug with the Roamio software. Before I send my Mini back to them for a refund, any ideas?

Another Netflix won't launch on Tivo HD problem

Thu, 12/26/2013 - 11:30
I have a Tivo HD which I recently connected to a Comcast ethernet connection from the old telephone connection I used. I've been trying to get Netflix to work on this device but the application fails to launch properly - it just returns to the Netflix folder in the Now Playing List.

My s/w version is 11.0k. A relative of mine has a Tivo HD on Verizon running 11.0k and the Netflix works properly on his unit.

I called Tivo for assistance but they said they can't find anything wrong and told me the Tivo HD was most likely defective.

I just saw another thread where someone said that Netflix on his Tivo HD started to work properly when his s/w was updated to 11.0m. I tried to force an update to 11.0m on my unit by repeatedly doing a network connection to Tivo, but the software hasn't updated. I called Tivo tech support and they said there was no way they could force my Tivo to go to 11.0m. I'm trying to find out if there is anything else I can try to get Netflix working or to get my software updated to 11.0m?


Cox Phoenix Issues with HBO and FXX

Thu, 12/26/2013 - 10:53
Just setup a new Roamio Plus, and for the most part it is working well. However I receive a black screen (no error) when I try to tune to 1204 (HBO Comedy Pacific) or 1167 (FXX). Is anyone able to receive these on their Roamio in Phoenix? All other HBO's and other premiums work fine.

Also another odd thing I have noticed is when I tune to 1134 (Cooking Chn) the Tivo switches to 720 even though I have 1080i set as the only available resolution. This causes the menus to change resolution and look pretty bad on my tv.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (1947)

The original movie with Danny Kaye is on TCM tonight at 8pm.

Play All Shows In This Group

Thu, 12/26/2013 - 08:32
This is a pretty neat new feature on the Roamio. At least new to me, was it ever available on the Premiere?

Anyway, is there anymore to this feature that I don't know about it? Can you customize your playlist? So far, it seems limited to just playing the whole group.

Overlapping recordings cause glitch?

Thu, 12/26/2013 - 08:06
I had several recordings scheduled with start/end set to 1 minute extra at either end. Two of these (at least) were on the same channel (BBC America, Doctor Who specials), and I noticed both recordings have a brief glitch with video pausing and pixellating at just about exactly the 1 minute mark where the Roamio would have been cranking up (or finishing, depending on how you look at it) the next show on the same channel.

Is this merely a coincidence, or have others seen the same thing with overlapping recordings on the same channel?

I guess I should experiment with explicitly recording some stuff that will overlap and see if it happens every time.

Deal on Tivo Mini?

Thu, 12/26/2013 - 06:26
Any deals out there to purchase a mini with lifetime sub for less than $250?

Rubber Foot

Thu, 12/26/2013 - 05:50

Looks like during a recent move I lost one of the rubber feet on the Premiere. Haven't had any luck finding them online. If anyone knows a way to get one, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Picked up something similar from home depot, but I'd like to replace with an original one if possible.

TiVo Premiere Elite XL4 DVR w/ LIFETIME Service, DVR Expander & Slide Remote


For sale is my TiVo Elite with transferable Lifetime service.
That means no monthly service fees!

I am also including a new TiVo Slide remote as well as a WD 1TB TiVo Expander, with it you get 3TB storage capacity around 477 HD recording hours.

All Like new with zero scratches. Everything is in great shape. All original packaging, manuals and cables are included.

Transferable extended warranty with Best Buy on the Elite box is valid until 3/2015

Everything has been plugged into UPS clean power for added reliability.
This box requires a Cablecard from your cable provider. Also works with Fios but not satellite.

I get a Tivo Roamio because the 6 decoders but this model is still upgradable by Tivo.

Questions about Tivo Roamio on Wave Cable

Wed, 12/25/2013 - 22:35
So I just received a Roamio today for Christmas and had a few questions.
-Does anyone know if this will work on Wave Cable?
-Can I just purchase a cable card eBay instead of getting one through the company so I won't have to pay them monthly for it?
-Is it worth paying for the lifetime service and is it transferable to another device if I decide to upgrade?
Thanks for the feedback.

No more waiting - got a Roku for xmas

Wed, 12/25/2013 - 22:26
I'm tired of waiting for TiVo to fix the Netflix reboots and for Amazon Prime support. Now I don't have to wait. I got a Roku for Christmas. Now I have to figure out which HDMI device to unplug from my TV so I can use it.

Ethernet Connection Question

Wed, 12/25/2013 - 21:57
I just ordered a Tivo Premier TCD746500. I am waiting to receive it. My current Tivo Series 2 is connected with a phone line. I would like to connect my new Tivo via Ethernet. I just don't understand how I can do this.

I read where you connect the ethernet cable to the Tivo and then to the router. My router is hard wired and is in another room.

How am I supposed to work this out? The ethernet cable is short.

Please talk in layman's terms.

Thanks for your help.

One show always records - no season pass

Wed, 12/25/2013 - 20:56
This is driving me nuts. "Stoked on Fishing" always records when it is aired. There is not a season pass and I've given it three thumbs down. There is a star next to the episode when its listed as well. How do I stop it?

Recording one channel continuously...

Wed, 12/25/2013 - 20:49
I setup a manual recording SP to record one channel 24 hours, every day.

It is probably not a big deal for a Tivo HD since it is doing it anyways, but this is probably going to prevent the unit to reboot itself (at least intentionally)

I don't expect frequent software updates on a HD XL, so this is probably not a big deal. I have been doing this for about a month now.

Anyone done this for a long time? Any problems?

Will Tivo HD's & Roamio's Play Well With Directv Tivos?

Wed, 12/25/2013 - 20:40
I may be moving in a year or so, and may have the option of going with Directv. I know that Tivo HD's and Roamios won't work with satelite, but can they be used for MRV and transferring programs to/from a Directv Tivo receiver?

Doctor Who "The Time of the Doctor" 12/25/13

Wed, 12/25/2013 - 18:29
Comparable to the Day of the Doctor for me. A great episode but not one of my favorites ever. I was really glad they had the real Amy at the end, would have seemed weird without her.

At one point I thought that Smith was just going to age into Capaldi without a regen. I don't think this resolves the Galifrey thing but I thought it might for a while. Smith looked like Gordon Ramsey as he aged then like William Hartnell for a while :D
