TiVo Series TCD240080

Thu, 11/14/2013 - 11:51
I am assuming it is the hard drive. I started to read the Trouble Shooting but basically during recording a show, there will be no sound and the video is scrambled.

I know it is an old one. We do not use it that much - I think we might even have our Series One somewhere, I think that was back in the day they let you upgrade.

Everytime I think maybe we should get a new one, they come out with something better.

I was looking at the hard drives for the TiVo and was wondering if 500G would be OK for that one?

We have just have had it for so long I don't want to throw it away if it is just a HD issue.

Thank you!

South Park "Black Friday" OAD 11/13/14

Thu, 11/14/2013 - 11:38
Oh man this was one of my most favorite episodes in a long time. The Game of Thrones plot, the video game console wars, the mall cops, the new Elmo doll, it was great. So will there be a Part 2? They did a cliffhanger "to be continued" episode a few years back and instead they showed a Towelee episode for Part 2. I didn't put "Part 1" in the thread title, because I didn't know if that would be a spoiler since it didn't say "Part 1" in the guide data.

Thu, 11/14/2013 - 10:13
I've just listed my TiVo Premiere XL with lifetime on eBay.

TiVo Premiere XL W/Lifetime Subscription, 1TB Drive

It includes the remote, AC cord and an HDMI cable. It works, selling it because I bought a Roamio basic.

No Thread? I had several LOL moments...

Cam yelling at the ref-"That's the worst call since casting Russell Crowe in Les Mis!" :p

Jay and Jordan Peele fighting over the parking space-"I will sleep here!" and Jay teasing Jordan about his "blouse" -

Haley trying to fool the "Manny" into thinking she was Alex - but blowing it-"I know their Manny and you look nothing like him!" -Ohhh, you're Haley! ;)

Poor Phil-trying to follow the rockstar pharmacist...:o

Roamio giving v58 error while Mini is not

Thu, 11/14/2013 - 10:07
I'm having terrific problems with v58 errors. I already know that part of it is a Cisco cablecard with 1.5.2.Fp1401 firmware, but it seems more complicated than that. When Comcast unpairs/repairs the card, the Mini instantly is able to tune to any channel(including premium) with no problem. The Roamio take an hour or more to get the same channels and sometime it's displaying a v58 error when the Mini is fine tuned to the same channel. This makes no sense to me since the Mini is using the Roamio's tuner(s).

I've also had the problem a couple of time with the Roamio having a black screen when I turned it on. Tivo Central does not work, no channels work, no guide is present. The only way to get it off the black screen is to change HDMI inputs on my TV and then change it back. I've changed the HDMI cord and it doesn't seem to make a difference. This is usually accompanied by the return of v58 problems even though my shows were taped properly just a few minutes before.

Have I got a bad Roamio??

Remaining SD menus in HDUI

Thu, 11/14/2013 - 08:57
With the Fall 2013 update to my Premiere, I note that the Wishlist UI is now in HD. Huzzah!

I had to chuckle, when I went to the "Exclusive Roamio Offer" in the top discovery bar though, it displayed in an SD window. Talk about boneheaded, TiVo... LOL!

What other screens are still ridiculously formatted in SD?

Most everything under Settings (ie: Parental Controls, Messages, Account & System Info)
Showcases & Apps
Manage Recordings & Downloads - Find by Time
Manage Recordings & Downloads - Find by Channel
Any others?

FWIW, I wouldn't mind so much if the screen didn't flash black before switching.

I do also note the HDUI feels a lot faster now than ever before.

Never expected to see him again, now this is what I call an anniversary present...


How do I STOP playback!

Thu, 11/14/2013 - 08:32
I read the posts on this subject but none solve my issue. This and the fact that I seem to be getting ads on something I pay a subscription for may result in me returning my week old Tivo.

Maybe one of you can help. I hope this is just me missing something easy. With old WMC ot TWC system if I hit stop on live or recorded TV it would stop and I would go back to guide or menu, great.

With Tivo if older kids or parents watching a channel and we finish for the night I see no way to stop that channel/show. So if young kids come in and turn on TV next morning there can be an inappropriate show on the last channel playing. It would be nice for unit to always stay in say guide mode without pip. Even if I use the slowmow button to hide the pip window and have pip wind set to off in settings the tivo starts playing in full screen. Same with going through the many steps to put unit in standby, coming out of standby TV is playing.

Is there not a status where the tuners are not doing anything. Is the only way to make this thing comply with parental controls to turn it off at the wall!

Moving recorded shows

Thu, 11/14/2013 - 08:14
I would love to transition from my Premiere XL4 and 2 tuner Premiere to a Roamio Pro and a Mini (I already have another Mini in our bedroom). My issue is transferring all the recorded content from the XL4 to the new Roamio. Easy to transfer non copy restricted shows but how does anyone, if even possible, move the copy protected content to the Romano?

Picasa Web Albums

Thu, 11/14/2013 - 07:51
I just created a Picasa Web Album, now known as Google Plus, I think.

However, I am unable to log onto my album from my Premiere. It won't accept my password, and Google sends me a notice that someone is hacking into my account. I respond that it was me, but I still cannot log on.

Is the Picasa access no longer working, now that Google has taken over?

Background downloads ??

Thu, 11/14/2013 - 07:20
I am new to the stream but it looks to me like the iPAD app does not continue to download in the background. I know IOS is not really a multitasking OS but I would have thought with the IOS 7 release the app work a bit in the background like the APP,iTunes and music apps

Roamio/Premiere streaming

Thu, 11/14/2013 - 06:29
I just upgraded from a Premiere to a Roamio Plus. I moved the Cable Card to the Roamio.
I would like to use the Premiere as a remote box. I know I can view the recorded shows on the Roamio but is there a way to view live TV from the Roamio? The Premiere no longer has a cable card so it would be nice to steal a tuner from the Roamio the way I assume the Mini does.


Survivor - Blood versus Water : OAD 11-13-2013

Thu, 11/14/2013 - 04:42
Ugh, I am not a fan of double elimination episodes. I guess the producers felt it was needed to load up Redemption Island so we didn't have 2 weeks in a row with nobody going home.

I was surprised they went after Vytas first. With Aras gone, he ought to have been safe until the other two couples were broken up. Some of his comments at that TC were bizarre. Jeff must be really good at getting those people to talk because there's no reason for them to say some of the stuff that comes out.

Oh, and gross food eating contests are gross, but the sounds coming from last night's challenge was about to make me hurl. Gak!

The second TC was no suspense at all. I'm glad Katie got immunity and Tina went out instead. Fresh faces are good. That gang of 7 will have to start eating each other very soon. I would not be surprised to see Katie survive as they implode before they get her out. They really should be looking at blindsiding Tyson or picking off the strongest males like Hayden.

Jury will start soon. Looking forward to that.

Netflix with HTML5

Wed, 11/13/2013 - 21:45
I spoke to a knowledgeable TiVo technician today. I was helping him troubleshoot an issue and provided him a bug I found on my Roamio. I had mentioned that a lot of Premiere users are complaining about the Neflix app. He said that TiVo is migrating some apps to HTML5 and that they are most likely going to push out the new HTML5 Netflix in the Spring update. Hope this helps to those that are frustrated with the current app that is on the Premiere.

Wireless speeds from Roamio Basic

Wed, 11/13/2013 - 19:21
What kind of wireless speeds are people seeing from the Roamio Basic? I just received a TiVo wireless N adapter off ebay and tried it out with my Premiere. It's giving me 92Mb/s transfer rates from my Roamio Pro which is very good. I should have picked one up sooner. But I had ordered this before I ordered a Roamio basic. So my plan now is to get a second Wireless N adapter and hook up both of my GFs S3 boxes to it. Unless the speeds from the Roamio Basic wireless aren't very good.

Amazon Streaming / Amazon Prime

Wed, 11/13/2013 - 13:52
Does anyone know when/if Amazon streaming is coming to the roamio? i suspect that once streaming is implemented it will support amazon prime (free) streaming.

kmttg error on download

Wed, 11/13/2013 - 13:21
I am using kmttg v1p0i on a Mac with OS 10.8.5.

I successfully connect to my Tivo (Series 2) and the list of recorded shows loads up in the browser.

When I try to download, however, I get the following:

Download failed to file: the actual url is here.mpg
Exit code: 7
opening output file: Permission denied

Any thoughts on where to look for troubleshooting? I am using the java option to download, rather than curl.


USB ports on Roamio, potential use...

Wed, 11/13/2013 - 13:19
What are the potential uses for the two USB ports on the Roamio Plus/Pro?
I've read that one can be used for a cable tuner box but what are the existing (and future?) possibilities?
