manual repeating record, show and allow time

Mon, 10/14/2013 - 00:26
On my roamio, if I setup a repeat manual recording, when going to the season pass manager and selecting the item, there is no direct way to see the recording time, beginning /end, nor is there a way to change the time(s).

I Suggest that the info panel include the begin and end time, plus a choice to change the parameters of the manual repeat. I Suggest the same display for setting up the repeat manual recording be available to change any of the particulars, including the times, channel, etc.

The only way now, that I can see, to tell the time of the repeat recording is to select upcoming shows wherein it will show a start time, but no end time.

pyTivo push not working on Series 3

Sun, 10/13/2013 - 23:16
Is anyone else having trouble with pushes on Series 3 TiVos? I have a Premiere, two S3s, and a THD. Pushes are working just fine to the Premiere, but fail without errors on all three Series 3 class machines. This is looking like a mind server issue, but only with Series 3 machines.

wish for fractional minutes to skip in kmttg

Sun, 10/13/2013 - 22:55
I use kmttg for many purposes. I keep it running on my laptop while watching sports. Here I setup the skip minutes ahead to 2.

I've seen the code for this and it appears it would be quite easy to accept fractional values, such as 2.5 for 2:30 in time.

I already use negative values in skip back, so I can have multiple values for skipping forward. If both the skip back and skip forward permitted decimal values, I could have a skip back 30 seconds by entering .5.

In addition, if one were to enter + or - in the jump to minute field, e.g. +2 then this could be interpreted to mean a jump ahead, and say, -.5 would be go back 30 seconds.

With rather simple code changes, one could use these 3 comands in several additional ways.

Unfortunately, I'm not a java programmer, or I would present the code.

Momentary audio cut out

Sun, 10/13/2013 - 21:48
Setup is a roamio pro fed to a onkyo receiver - Verizon FIOS. Getting momentary audio cut out ONLY on A&E HD. It is happening once a minute.
Does not happen on the SD version of A&E. It happens on both HDMI and a digital audio cable. Recorded show from the channel also has the cut outs. It also only seems to be when I have dolby enabled. If I switch to PCM is seems fine.

Trying to determine if it is the source or my setup. It is the only channel it is happening on. I've tried attenuators, switching splitters, rebooting the ONT. Rebooting the tivo. I only started noticing it since the recent software update. Anyone else experiencing anything like this? Any ideas?

Video on Demand Dead - after HDD Upgrade

Sun, 10/13/2013 - 21:10

I have two original Tivo S3's. The first one's HDD died two years ago; I upgraded it with a WeaKnees kit.

The second one's HDD died recently, so I did the same thing. But now, on the one I upgraded today, I have no 'Video on Demand.' When I click that line on Tivo Central, the screen changes, then comes right back to Tivo Central.

Same thing happens if I go into the 'Now Playing List' and choose Netflix...screen changes, then returns without actually going to Netflix.

Everything else is working fine. I can transfer programs from the other S3, play back shows, etc.

On my other S3, connected to the same network, sitting side-by-side with the one having problems, it's fine. Shows the whole VOD page, with my options like Amazon, Netflix, etc.

Both are connected with CAT5 ethernet...not wifi.

Is there a setting I missed?


Netflix error UI-113

Sun, 10/13/2013 - 20:17
For first time tonight Netflix stopped working on my Roamio. I get an error code UI-113 each time. Netflix works on all my other devices on my network. It has to be something with Roamio. Can I reinstall Netflix app? No idea what do to.

The Walking Dead - S04E01 - 10/13/13

Sun, 10/13/2013 - 20:08
Glad it's back, but this show is really difficult to watch live.
The freaking commercials during this show are killing me. I can barely tolerate the Walking Dead. The commercials are way scarier. Make them stop!!!

Roamio with Cox in PHX?

Sun, 10/13/2013 - 20:06
Does anyone know if the Roamio streaming features work with HD channels with Cox in Phoenix?

My Series 3 just died and I'm considering a Roamio to replace it, but /i believe Cox broadcast flags pretty much all HD in Phoenix, breaking every feature beyond basic recording.

But perhaps something changed, so doesn't hurt to ask.


Amazing Race - 10/13/13

Well that really sucked. They never made it out of the airport.


I was really hoping for a non-elimination leg.

Tivo: Failed while negotiating

Sun, 10/13/2013 - 20:02
Anyone else seeing this tonight?
It's not a local network thing, AFAIK. Last successful update was at 5:34 pm CST, and nothing's changed at all since then, yet both Tivos are now reporting 'failed while negotiating', 'unrecoverable error' when trying to connect to the Tivo Service?

Amazing Race missing first 11 minutes

Sun, 10/13/2013 - 19:50
Roamio Pro. I have SP for 60 Minutes and TAR. Since I have 6 tuners, I set 60 Minutes with a 1 minute before and 30 minute after pad. I set TAR up for 1 minute before and 90 minutes after pad. Football ran over, so I started watching 60 Minutes 11 minutes after it started. After watching 60 Minutes, I deleted the show, and went to my recorded shows, TAR didn't show up. I hit the Tivo button and went back to my recorded shows and TAR appeared, showing it was recording. I selected to watch and I'm missing 11 minutes. I'm pissed because I bought the Roamio to resolve conflicts, not to fail to record shows. This is the first time this has happened to me on the Roamio, or on a Tivo.. It does appear that the Roamio rebooted recently, as I had to scroll down to get to CC last Friday.

I mentioned this has happen to me first time on a Tivo. Back in Survivor season 2 my Replay TV failed to record an episode. I bought a series 2 Tivo and started recording Survivor on both DVRs.

sort by date not working

Sun, 10/13/2013 - 19:50
Sort by date not working here.

nfl football at the bottom? Paging down and there's another 5 or so shows from 10/13, after the older ones.

I thought I got bit by the failure to record before I saw it in the wrong spot. It should be showing up at the top.

Hi Guys,

Anyone else having an outage right now? I am getting a C133.

Losing audio after switching HDMI

Sun, 10/13/2013 - 17:07
I just got a Roamio Pro and after a few glitches that have been resolved (first Roamio was DOA and had to exchange it, and problems with pairing the CableCard) I'm having issues with the HDMI audio. My TV has only one HDMI input so I am using an 4-port HDMI switcher (from Monoprice) to switch between HDMI inputs. When I switch back to the Roamio I lose audio. The only way to restore it is to unplug and plug back in the HDMI cable on the Roamio, but when I switch away and back to the Roamio, I'll lose audio again. My Series 3 Tivo plugged into the same switch has no problem. I haven't yet done any testing yet so does anyone have any ideas what to check? Could it be the HDMI cable (I've used it before with an Apple TV with no problem) or the switch itself? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

(As as side note, when I returned the first Roamio to Best Buy, I asked if it would be returned to Tivo. I was told no, that it would actually be destroyed! This seems like such a waste, as the problem was probably just a lose power cable inside. I was told HP does the same thing - if a computer is returned that doesn't work, it is destroyed instead of being sent back to the factory and refurbished.)

CW and Time Warner Cable

Sun, 10/13/2013 - 16:53
I live in upstate NY and I'm just noticing that I don't get the CW. I guess I've never tried to watch anything on it before. What gives? Wiki says 95% of the country gets it now. Is it because there is no affiliate covering the area (Adirondacks) or am I missing something?

New FX show Fargo with Bob Odenkirk, Oliver Platt, Adam Goldberg

Sun, 10/13/2013 - 13:26
This sounds like a winner!

Quote: After spending four seasons of Breaking Bad trying to evade law enforcement, Bob Odenkirk will switch sides for FX’s Fargo.

The comedian has boarded the ten-part limited series in a supporting role, along with Glenn Howerton (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), Kate Walsh (Private Practice), Joey King (The Conjuring), Adam Goldberg, Oliver Platt, and more.


The Crazy One's 10-10-2013 *Spoilers*

Sun, 10/13/2013 - 13:25
There was one scene in the bloopers section at the end of the show.

Robin Williams: Where did you learn the Dukes of Hazard stuff?

Sarah Michelle Gellar: Sunnydale...and walks away.

SNL (10/12/13) - Bruce Willis/Katy Perry

Sun, 10/13/2013 - 13:20
I liked the opening tying in the new movie "Gravity" to the govt. shutdown of NASA.

Other than that, I felt that Taran Killam gave the strongest performances throughout the show, which was otherwise pretty much a snooze-fest.

Kate McKinnon is great as European characters, and the short film featuring mostly new cast was weak.

I liked the new guy on the Weekend Update talking about his bad tattoo decisions.

I can hardly recall anything else about this episode other than Katy Perry's performances which I enjoyed.

Roamio with basic cable channels

Sun, 10/13/2013 - 07:08
I'm looking to buy a new Roamio and would like to make sure I'd be able to get my basic cable channels from Time Warner Cable when directly connecting the Tivo to the cable outlet WITHOUT tunning adapter or cable card. Thanks.
