Moving shows from an old TiVo to a new one?

Wed, 08/21/2013 - 22:28
Is there an easy/painless way I can transfer all of my shows from my current TiVo to possibly a Roamio in the future?

As it is now the only way I can see doing this is to TiVo To Go everything on the HD, which is A LOT, and then TiVo go go back onto another TiVo which would take an extremely long time. Is there another way??

Big Brother - 8/21/13

Wed, 08/21/2013 - 22:20
Was anyone actually fooled into believing that Aaryn was going to put Amanda up instead of Spencer? I sure wasn't. It's so funny how everyone in the house is truly afraid of Amanda. That being said, I do think Aaryn made the right choice. She has a much better chance beating Amanda at the end than Helen. It will be interesting to see who gets to come back into the game. I doubt they'll be able to make much of an impact at this point, but you never know.

Watch shows on my computer

Wed, 08/21/2013 - 21:09
With Roamio can I watch recorded shows on my computer?

480p?

Wed, 08/21/2013 - 20:17
Am I correct that digital cable is natively 480i, 720p or 1080i, and that 480p is 480i deinterlaced by the TiVo?

Where's Juliet?! >(

Wed, 08/21/2013 - 19:42
and by Juliet I mean simple voice activated commands! "Tivo pause", "Tivo Play", "Tivo replay" etc is really all I ever wanted!

It works great on my 360 and is totally convenient! You will not search for a remote to get up, you just say "xbox pause" and whataya know, it pauses, you get up, no remote needed.. when I come back, well, I don't want to spoil it for you guys :) but I sit down, and say 'xbox play' no remotes, it's like magic! :) :) :)

O tivo, tivo, tivo wherefore art thou voice prompts! Faster hardware was expected, with Android everywhere and Xbox One soon and so many options in the pipeline, Tivo this seemed like a easy no brainer, plus saying "tivo this" and "tivo that' somehow seems to be good advertising/marketing :)

Come on, who's with me!
riz

p.s. I don't want to talk to my Tivo, i want to tell it a few basic commands. It works perfectly on Xbox 360 and works outstanding on my Galaxy Nexus. Simple voice commands, not Siri people. One way commands, no talk back that's for sure.. Apple doesn't get that, nobody wants to talk to Siri, nobody!... BUT many like to give voice commands that are ONE WAY like on Android and Xbox (cause it works great)

Play, Pause, Replay, skip.. that's about it

Tivo Android App won't connect

Wed, 08/21/2013 - 18:35
Premier box, Motorola Razr HD phone, wired and wireless network, but will not connect. Tried every trick in trouble-shooting recommendations, and spent over 1/2 hour on telephone with Tivo Tech. support. He tried to be helpful, but still cannot connect. Had some difficulty with Premier when first purchased. It appears Tivo "rushes to market" before getting "bugs" out of hardware and software, allowing purchasers to help them trouble-shoot issues they should have resolved before releasing product. Would have considered purchasing a Roamio, but now have concerns for functionality of Tivo hardware and software. Will wait until the "dust settles" on this product. App is useless.

Stream, Baby, Stream works fine

Works just fine on my Plus.

New Roamios with clear QAM?

Wed, 08/21/2013 - 18:12
The title says it all, will these work with clear QAM and no Cablecard?

Added Linksys/Cisco range extender to my network, now 4 tivos acting like 2 networks

Wed, 08/21/2013 - 18:09
I have four Series 2 Tivos on my network. I have a Linksys/Cisco router. Everything was fine until I added a Linksys/Cisco wireless range extender to help two of my Tivos which had signal strengths hovering between 25-40%. The range extender did its job, increasing the signal strength on the two affected Tivos to 80-100%. However, the two Tivos which are being aided by the range extender keep losing contact with the other two Tivos.

If I restart all 4 Tivos, they all see each other for about 10 minutes. Then, the two Tivos aided by the range extender see each other and the other two Tivos see each other. They’re almost acting like it’s two separate networks. Ironically, At first, I could access all four Tivos using KMTTG and pyTivo. Now I can only see the two Tivos not affected by the range extender.

I thought it was a pyTivo issue but the problem continues even when I disabled pyTivo.

All 4 S2s have wireless G adapters.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

EAS bug?

Wed, 08/21/2013 - 18:03
So while setting up my Roamio Pro I got a EAS for a weather alert. While the sounds was going, the screen showed a (blueish) panel. I expected the text of the alert to show up there, but it stayed empty. At the end of the alert the panel went away. Rewinding the buffer showed the usual EAS alert (mind you I'm coming from a Series3).

This is running 20.3.6.

Roamio ad on home page link doesn't work

Wed, 08/21/2013 - 17:10
Your link from the roamio ad on the home page leads to a page not found message because you have the /home part included twice.

Link should be .com/home/...

Your link has .com/home/home/...

Wealknees Roamio Basic Model

Wed, 08/21/2013 - 16:23

MAC ID's

Wed, 08/21/2013 - 16:17
I'm going through the process of assigning static IP addresses to all my computers, printers, routers, iPhone/iPad, Apple TV, etc.

I would like to do this with my TiVo's as well.

Where can I find the MAC addresses of the TiVo's? I have a TiVo Roamio coming soon. I will have a MoCA connection to 4 Minis.

Does the MoCA adapter get its own IP address? If so, how can I obtain the MAC for that?

I'm using an Apple Time Capsule which unfortunately doesn't offer a DHCP client list to get this information. Would make it a lot easier.

Faster channel surfing?

Wed, 08/21/2013 - 15:44
Is the new Roamio any faster than the Premiere for channel surfing with a Tuning Adapter and CableCard?

Best way to transfer a lot of recordings between Tivos

Wed, 08/21/2013 - 15:00
I'm getting a new Roamio today and as a result, I'm going to decommission my old S3 that has given me many years of service.

I have a bunch of recordings on the S3 (non copy protected) that I'd like to mass copy to the Roamio. My question is, what is the best way to do that?

If I remember correctly, you can copy from one tivo to another but does it let you copy an entire folder at one time?

Is PyTivo or kmttg suitable for this?

Tivo Stream Outside of Home Network?

Wed, 08/21/2013 - 14:53
Anybody know when TiVo Stream will allow me to watch my TiVo when I'm outside of my home network? I've heard that it's in the works, and it would be great to use right within my TiVo App instead of having to rely on my SlingBox to accomplish this.

remote view of what is on my Premiere?

Wed, 08/21/2013 - 14:48
With, or without the new Roamio announcment, is there a way to watch recorded videos on my Premiere (with the tivo stream) from a remote (1000 miles away) broadband connection? (on my ipad for example). I have read the announcements and just don't get it.

Anybody get one yet?

Wed, 08/21/2013 - 14:18
I'm just looking to see if any of the forum members got one and have you tested with pytivo yet?

Now that Roamio is here, will the Premiere HDUI ever get finished?

Wed, 08/21/2013 - 14:14
It appears the HDUI is finally complete in the Roamio. Does anyone think the HDUI will be completed in the Premiere?
