Is Art foreshadowing the ending, Does anyone think Raylan dies at the hand of Boyd at series end?

Premiere XL Starting Up Loop

Tue, 01/20/2015 - 20:46
Looking for advice if anyone has any. I have a premiere XL that when powered up will show the "starting up" screen. After a minute or so, I'll see the yellow light begin to flash which I believe indicates the hd is being accessed. The flashing stops after about 5 secs, then the screen goes black. If I wait about a minute, the process repeats again, over and over. I replaced the ps with a brand new one and I pulled a hard drive from another working XL in the hopes that if it was that I would get past the problem start up to at least be able to do a C&DE if I wanted to. Neither of these changes made a difference. I'm praying that it's not a toasted mobo and maybe somebody here knows a trick to try? What does pulling the mobo battery do? Would that do any type of memory reset? Any advice on what may be happening or how to possibly get past this start up loop would be greatly appreciated.

Premiere antenna and cable convergence issue

Tue, 01/20/2015 - 18:44
Hi TiVo peeps,
Noob here, at least to the forums. I have been a TiVo user for 2 years now. I own 2 premiere 2 tuner units. Both have been working fine until yesterday. I receive both my locals ota and cox cable service on both units. 2 of the 5 local channels come in clear with ota. The others are a bit choppy. However the problem im now having is difficult to explain but here's my attempt. When I tune into any local cable channel that is also offered ota then for some reason it displays the image from the antenna even tho I am clearly tuned into the cable channel and not the ota channel. Therefore only 2 of the 5 local broadcast channels on cable are coming in clear. When I disconnect the antenna from behind the TiVo unit then my local broadcast cable channels become clear as if it's auto switching from the antenna channel to the cable but the TiVo is clearly tuned into the cable channel. I hope this makes sense because I doesnt to me.

Charter and MoCA

Tue, 01/20/2015 - 17:45
After dealing with Charter in Rancho Cucamonga and an issue with their cable card and tuning adapter for 5 months, finally success and our Tivo Roamio Plus has now been working fine for about 6 months.

For Christmas my wife got me a Tivo Mini for my office. I attempted to set up a MoCa from the Roamio Plus with both with and without the POE filter with no luck.

Is this something I should call Charter out for since it is very likely the problem is with their coax, ie. maybe splitters?

When viewing the full site on my iPad I'm periodically being redirected to the App Store. Pretty much how it's explained in this article.


Freezing and pixellation

Tue, 01/20/2015 - 15:01
I bought a Roamio Pro in December when they were are sale. When I finally set it up in my new bedroom, it wouldn't go past the starting screen, and I had to send it in for a replacement. I just received the replacement yesterday, and there seem to possibly be an issue with the hard drive. While watching live or recorded TV, it continually has problems with the video. If I rewind, and watch the same scene over again, it usually doesn't happen right away again. After some goggling, I found fixmytivo.com. There website describes, word for word, my problem. I ran the hard drive test overnight, but when I woke up, it was on live tv. So I have no idea what happened, or does that itself mean it passed? Do you think I can safely assume its the hard drive, and I am going to have to contact Tivo again?
Thanks for your help guys.

Blumoo remote

Tue, 01/20/2015 - 10:19
Anyone using a blumoo remote with their TiVo? Looking into replacing my Logitech Harmony and this device seems like a good choice so far.

Can you program remote with "sleep" feature?

Tue, 01/20/2015 - 09:48
The Tivo remote could completely replace my TV remote if it also had the "sleep" button. Any way to program this into the Tivo remote?

I don't want to purchase a programmable remote for just this one function.

Problem with Stream while watching "copyrighted" cable channel

Tue, 01/20/2015 - 09:06
I setup my Stream to use with Android tablet for both in and out of home streaming.

This morning I received an error message while streaming HLN news that it's copyrighted and cannot be viewed out of home.

However, I was in the home on my home network.

Any idea on what could be causing the issue here?

Should I change my setup for in-home only or this an error? However, I would still like to use out of home even if I can only watch network television.

Please help. Thanks.

Justified - marathon?

Tue, 01/20/2015 - 01:47
Does anyone know whether FX or one of its subsidiaries is planning to show a Justified marathon before the final season starts? Usually they do one before the start of every new season, but I can't seem to find one in the listings.

Can I delete shows from a remote location?

Tue, 01/20/2015 - 00:52
I have the Roamio. Since I got it last year, my circumstances have changed and I am only home a few days per month. I love being able to program recordings remotely, but I have some things that I'm able to watch and don't want to use space to save them on my DVR until I get home to delete them.

Is there a way to delete them remotely? I don't know why I thought it was possible to do it online, the same way I am setting up some of the recordings, but I don't see a way to do it.


Any way to get Bloomberg TV?

Mon, 01/19/2015 - 23:04
Just purchased a Tivo Roamio DVR (basic model for OTA) along with 2 Tivo mini's for two different rooms. So far, I love it!

I usually use a computer to watch live Bloomberg TV through the Bloomberg website (bloomberg.com/tv). Is there any way to program the Roamio to get Bloomberg TV? It would be so much faster and easier than starting up a computer everytime.

The Roamio has saved me from firing up the computer with Windows Media Center everytime I want to watch TV. So I'm really hopign there is a work around to get live Bloomberg TV through the Roamio somehow.

Video on demand issues

Mon, 01/19/2015 - 22:54
I have a Series 3 HDXL. Until recently, I have been able to receive the podcasts that I subscribe to without problems. I am hardwired to the network and there does not seem to be any problem with Tivo's daily connection. I no longer receive any podcasts and even have issues getting to the video on demand sub-directory where you can choose between Netflix, Amazon, or podcasts. I get bounced back to the main screen. I have rebooted without any change noted. Next I will try to pull a program from it with my roamio. I miss my podcasts.

what is the best wireless streaming options for 2 premiers?

Mon, 01/19/2015 - 22:10
one of my two premiers has the N adapter, the other has the older G adapter. i am contemplating adding another N adapter, so i can stream from one to the other without the typical stutters and message of slow network. however, am i better off getting a wireless bridge, and if so, considering they cost about the same or more than the tivo N adapter, which one will serve me the best?

Video audio sync issue Premier HD

Mon, 01/19/2015 - 19:24
Recently we have noticed both our TiVos have been getting out of sync, audio ahead of video. If I breifly switch channels it resolves itself for a while.
