This seems a massive rip off. The main Tivo is the only one receiving the guides and scheduling things. So I don't understand how Tivo gets away with charging so much just to connect a Mini.
Is this a legit thing or simply what it appears like: a massive rip-off?
I've been getting more an more upset with Tivo lately. I pay a huge amount of money to buy the device and to pay for service plan and yet I still have to put up with advertisements within the Tivo itself. I wouldn't mind if there was an "advertisement section" of Tivo where you navigate to and watch the advertisements at your choosing. But popping those things up when I Pause etc infuriates me.
Is the Mini just another way to rip-off the customer? For the first time I'm starting to look at dropping Tivo because of things like this.
My premier is recording 2 programs, I just finished watching a 3 day old recorded program, now every program I try to watch first shows the rotating blue circle, then goes to blue screen with stationary circle and says one moment. Then nothing until it drops back to tivo central and the blue circle is spinning in shadow, then goes away. Leaving the mane menu. I switched to the SD menu and now I can play the programs.
What does the HD menu have to do with recorded shows playing? Anybody else have this problem?
Has anyone else noticed that the recent Netflix profiles upgrade has disappeared? It was there this morning but seems to have reverted to the single profile with Netflix and Netflix for kids options. I've been getting daily Tivo reboots lately while using Netflix and wondering if they're still tinkering with it. BTW, still have profiles on PS3 and BluRay platforms (and no reboot issue).
I know the channel became TRU TV, or something like that, but I assumed they would still show some live tv, high profile court cases? I guess that's not the case?
Is this type programming being aired on any channel nowadays? Some of those trials could be riveting.
With our new Roamio, I would like to see if I can improve the quality of suggestions. I know all about the thumbs up and down; I would like to know if there is a way to tell TiVo that I would prefer that it record movies over shows. Is this possible?
I installed pyTivo (v1p0i, I think) a few days ago, and it seemed to run OK.
Now when I try to run it, it doesn't finish the initialization in the cmd window, and the GUI never starts. The PC runs Win7-64, the Tivo is a Roamio basic.
I have rebooted the Tivo and the PC, but no joy. Tried reinstalling pyTivo, same result. Any ideas? Here is a copy of the cmd window text:

Why am I surprised that this Piece of Sh*t software doesn't work. As a matter of fact I have had more problems with the Roamio's then any other product from Tivo. I can't even get the basic streaming in house working on either unit.
It took me three weeks fighting with Tivo to prove to them that the problem was on their side when I lost the ability to do MRV all of the sudden. Spent days jumping through their hoops to prove to them it was on their side before they would move the case to tier two.
I had better success using the premiere and a stand alone stream then with this combo unit. I swear once my year is up I am dropping this like a bad habit and getting a sling box to do the streaming with a cable box. For all of you who do have it working good luck I hope it continues to stay working for you.
Great episode. All three romances had some airtime, and some progress.
[Raj--at least he had a scene talking to Penny. Can we get the boy a gf already?]
The song at the end... incredible, moving. And almost as amazing as Penny's dress.;)
Sheldon: "Sheldon Cooper does not get lucky!"
Amy: "You and me both, brother."
Leonard: "Is that a pregnancy test?"
Penny: "Oh yeah, just the first one. I didnt save them all."
And so it begins. Let's put the OAD and episode title in the post title (or in the beginning of your post, if you can't load the post title) for the first post about the new episode each week. It makes it easier when people are not caught up to the current episode.
All-Stars really bugs me -- it's just not as satisfying as the original show -- but it's like a train-wreck, I can't help watching.
And of course the producers have gone out of their way to load the show with designers I really wanted to see again -- and designers I never wanted to see again.
Three former winners? Seriously, PR?
Is anyone else game for this?
I'm sure everyone is exited to try the OOH streaming, but I'm still having issues in home.
Streaming is generally very high quality (HD), but freezes often. Usually every 5 to 10 seconds. My wifi speed is generally excellent. I have one of the newer Asus AC routers (RT-AC66U).
The router config is pretty much stock (no QoS enabled or anything). This issue seems to happen regardless of other network traffic.
Anyone else having this problem or have suggestions on settings? Am I right in suspecting the router is a problem? As it exists not, the streaming is pretty much useless for me.
I have the entry level Roamio w/a Tivo Stream add-on box. After I installed Tivo Stream the regular high speed scrubbing no longer works in the Tivo ipad App. The new scrub bar for "Watch on iPad" works fine. But the scrub bar for watching TV using the Tive IOS Remote app doesn't work. Moving the bar does nothing.

What internet dealer can I get a Roamio for less than $150 shipped free to California (from outside the state) to avoid the sales tax?
Looks like he's going to be called The Arrow from now on. I'd still prefer Green Arrow but anything's better than The Hood or The Vigilante.
Laurel's father was standing five feet from The Arrow for about half the show and he still couldn't figure out it's Oliver.
Would I know who the blonde woman hero is if I read the comics?
I am seeing a strange behavior on my Roamio Pro and wonder if anyone else can reproduce it. I am wondering if it might be related to the Cisco TA issues, discussed in this thread: http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb...d.php?t=509579
If I have recordings in progress and I reboot or restart, the recordings do not resume after the Roamio completes it's restart.
I also get an odd message in History that I do not recall seeing before in the Premiere.
The message is Not Recorded - "Problem Getting Tuner"
Can anyone reproduce this, especially anyone with a Cisco TA?
Support.tivo.com only returns 404 error. This is a perfect description of what Tivo has become.
Did the download feature of the TiVo app get broken with the latest TiVo streaming update?
I was previously able to download hour-long, HD TV shows in near real-time without difficulty. Now, it's downloading very low quality, and times-out numerous times while struggling to download a show.
Is anyone else having this problem?
The Roamio did not come with operating instructions. Is there a user guide I can download?
I used to have the series 3 but there are some interface differences.
.. Some of the title on season pass manager list are in a white font and a few are a dimmer gray. What does that mean?
.under "my shows", what does the red circle to the left of a title mean? What about a green dot? A blue dot?
Where can I find this info!
Anyone else having problems streaming Netflix tonight? I'm not able to connect via TiVo, although connecting from my computer works fine. I've tried rebooting the TiVo and disconnecting the Netflix account; now when I try to re-connect Netflix I get the same error about not being able to connect.
