Live TV sometimes delayed

Fri, 11/08/2013 - 21:09
Sorry for the bad title, couldn't find a way to summarize this properly.

At times, when I turn on TV, the DVR is showing programming from 30 minutes ago on the already tuned station. For instance, I put on a basketball game last night and started watching it. After a bit I realized the game should be over by that time and paused the DVR and the marker was at the beginning of the 30 minute buffer. If I changed the channel and went back, then it was up to date.

Anyone know why this happens?

Ordered a Roamio Pro!

Fri, 11/08/2013 - 20:58
Hello All!

Back from my days of posting when I had my TiVo HD model 6 years ago...it is finally starting to die a slow death so I pulled the trigger on the latest model. I am very excited about getting it delivered on Monday, but will have Charter coming out on Tuesday evening to get me set up with my multistream card and take my two single streams back. I decided to have them come out and get me set up in case there are issues. I am having them install the POE filter as well.

Looking to transfer my season pass list to the new one. Anyone out there tell me how to achieve this smoothly and seamlessly?

Also, should I hook this new Roamio up Monday evening if I have time even without the cable card so I can get it fired up? Is there an advantage to doing this prior to getting the card?

Thanks for all your help!

As a side note: was going to order a few weeks ago but they couldn't do anything to save on the boxes. Called on Wednesday and they say $50 off the Plus and $100 off the Pro, I decided to jump on it w/ the lifetime service. Last one went 6 years and 2 months...hoping the same out of the next one!

Anyone want to trade

Fri, 11/08/2013 - 18:46
OK I doubt anyone will take me up on this, but just in case I figure I'll ask....

Does anyone want to trade a 4 tuner Premiere w/lifetime for a 2 tuner Premiere (75 hour) with lifetime? I know it may seem like an unfair trade but the 2 tuner can record OTA and the 4 tuner can not, so I thought maybe someone cutting the cord might find value in such a trade. Also the 2 tuner unit I have has over 2 years left of a 3 year warranty. I do not require the same on the trade unit, so that would be an added bonus to make the trade more attractive.

If anyone is interested please PM me.

Weird SO3 Behavior

Fri, 11/08/2013 - 16:17
I have had my TA on a timer for 2 years now and it updates about every other day every time I check it, maybe every 2-3 weeks.

I checked it last night (Thurs), and the last GC had been Wed A.M., but the update had failed earlier in the day with an SO3 error. I had never seen that before. I tried a manual update and it got to downloading but once again failed on an SO3. I rebooted and same behavior. I went to bed and checked it this morning. While the GC is still saying Wed, so a little over 2 days now without an update, a program update had completed and an index had occurred. No sign of any SO3 error.

Anybody know what exactly an SO3 error is?? Whatever it is, it fixed itself.

Roamio Pro - MoCA (NOT) Down

Fri, 11/08/2013 - 13:20
Had some TiVo connectivity issues when setting up my Roamio the other evening. It was due to a problem on TiVo's end, and not on my home network.

Even though I have full connectivity with the TiVo(successful TiVo connects, Discovery Bar, Netflix, etc.), and devices fed by the MoCA signal (Cable In to TiVo (MoCA), Ethernet out of TiVo to network hub that feeds PS3, and Apple TV all functioning properly; MoCA shows as down in the TiVo Diagnostics.

momentary video freezes during streaming

Fri, 11/08/2013 - 11:34
I have been having an issue with the video freezing for 1-2s while the audio continues playing. This is on a new iPad air. Roamio basic with a standalone stream.

Anyone have any idea what could be causing this?

Revolution "The Patriot Act" OAD 11/6/2013 *spoilers*

Fri, 11/08/2013 - 11:26
I know that some are no longer liking this show, but I think it's getting better. I'm really enjoying the fact that it's no longer about trying to turn the power back on and instead is now about battling the sinister conspiracy forces that are calling themselves "patriots" and pretending to be the US government. And we keep learning more about how they've been planning this takeover for many years. Much more interesting than some idiots walking across the country to punch some codes into a computer and restore everything back to normal.

So Monroe comes back to life, to absolutely nobody's surprise. We all knew this was going to happen the second we saw that Rachel was handling the syringe with the "lethal" injection.

I like the introduction of the Dr. Horn character, and Zeljko Ivanek is the perfect actor to play that part. He's going to be an excellent nemesis for our "heroes." And now that he's got Aaron, that's going to make things very interesting.

Series 2 R10 updated to 6.4a from download

Fri, 11/08/2013 - 10:41
I have a Series 2 R10 that was running 6.3. This morning I saw "recently deleted" in the Now Playing List which is a 6.4a feature. This apparently started on November 1. I didn't think they were doing software updates anymore. :confused:


Big Bang Theory "The Proton Displacement" 11/07/13 S7E7

Fri, 11/08/2013 - 10:16
Professor Proton versus The Science Guy!

Great episode. Everything that made Bob Newhart so good last season was even better this time. And I was counting the seconds until he made his first Penny DOM joke (didn't take long "I remember your girlfriend").

And we got some real honest talk about why Leonard puts up with Sheldon.

So. Many. Lines.

“They’re going to have sex before Sheldon and I do. I knew it!”

Sheldon: "I’m not going to bother him. I’m going to talk to him." Leonard: "He thinks there’s a difference."

"Look who’s here to put the ‘Jew’ in jewelry night!"

And the lightsaber belt buckles. Oh Raj...

Tivo Mini in child's room?

Fri, 11/08/2013 - 09:54

I'm thinking about putting a Tivo Mini in my kids' room, but I have a few questions to those who have one (didn't see these in the user guide):
  1. Can you configure the main tivo to not ever give a specific mini a tuner for live tv?
  2. Can you set parental controls on the mini itself, separate from the main tivo?
  3. Can you enable/disable video providers on the mini itself, separate from the main tivo?
  4. Can you use pytivo with the mini? (presumably, you would only be able to transfer items to/from the main tivo to watch via the mini)

I think I have one or two more, but they are slipping my mind.

Thanks in advance,

Tivo Mini in main viewing room

Fri, 11/08/2013 - 09:47

I'm planning on upgrading my two premieres to a roamio and one or more minis.

I've been thinking through my options and it had me thinking,

Are there any cons for putting the mini in the main viewing area (living room) and putting the roamio in the bedroom?

I can't come up with any cons, but it doesn't feel right to me. lol

Thanks in advance,

Roamio remote questions

Fri, 11/08/2013 - 09:29
I have a few questions about the remotes that comes with the Roamio plus and mini's.
I'm trying to see if I can minimize my mini purchases in some way.

I'll have my Roamio plus in my living room and I have a small TV nearby in my kitchen already with coax available. My though was to connect the coax from the Roamio (via a component to coax converter I have) to the kitchen TV.
I have a Harmony One remote (IR) that I'd be using for the Roamio in the living room, but I'm wondering if I can use the Roamio remote in the kitchen for double duty as RF. In other words, can the Roamio receive the IR signals from my living room Harmony remote, yet, also receive commands from the kitchen remote using RF? I'm guessing the Roamio can only be set up to receive one or another?

With this same concept, if I have a mini in my guest bedroom set to receive RF commands, could I also connect a coax from the mini to my study and use two remotes (RF)?

This would save me from having to buy 4 mini's, one for kitchen, guest room, study, and master bedroom.

Is any of this plausable?

SP for New showing old Episodes to record in To DO

Fri, 11/08/2013 - 09:18
I was looking through To Do List to see if new show Almost Human was set to record with wish list and setup SP.
I noticed several episodes of Hot In Cleveland in the To Do List.
However, these are episodes from 2010 (original air date) and not marked as New.
I checked the SP and I have it set for New only.
These episodes are a week away so it may correct itself.

Anyone else seeing this issue?

I have a RoamioPro if that makes a difference.

Can ping ethernet even though no cable connected

Fri, 11/08/2013 - 08:42
Just got my new Roamio Pro set up last night on MoCA, it downloaded the fall service update, and I got BHN to pair the Cisco CableCARD (PKM803 with 1.5.3_F.p.0601 - we'll see how that goes). Everything is working great.

I noticed, however, when checking my router, that the Roamio's ethernet MAC appears as "connected" to the router even though currently it's set as MoCA only and there is no ethernet cable plugged into the jack.

I can "ping" the ethernet address. If I try to access it via a browser, I get prompted for the login, but then get a "resource not found" error (if I connect via browser to the MoCA address I can access the web-based Now Playing).

Is this just a function/side effect of the internal MoCa+Ethernet bridge?

No 'all channels' view in guide on mini?

Fri, 11/08/2013 - 03:34
I don't usually spend much time in live tv on the mini... So this might be an old problem?

I was just in the guide, and tried to change the option (a) and set it to show all channels... And nothing changed. Favorites works, but 'my channels' and 'all' both show 'my channels'.

It just rebooted... I was watching something on netflix and it crashed n rebooted on me. :down:

Both the mini and the xl4 it's paired with are running 20.3.7

Series 2 on RCN freezing (not what you think!)

Thu, 11/07/2013 - 21:46
I can't imagine I'll find an answer to this, but at this point it's more of a curiosity question than anything else.

I've owned about eight Tivos, and I've had them apart practically down to the molecular level. My mom now has my old S2, and she's on RCN and is using an older cable box (DCT2500 I think) with a serial cable to change channels. It has worked like a champ.

She started to mention that some recordings were freezing - the video got stuck on the screen but the audio would continue, and sometimes it would come back after a few minutes. Other times it would continue to the end of the recording.

I know, I know... Failing hard drive, right? Or flaky power supply. Please stay with me for a moment.

I figured I'd get around to looking at it eventually, but in the meantime she acquired a hand-me-down Humax with a DVD recorder. Nice. She then had both Tivos hooked up in separate rooms, both on DCT2500s.

So as a fail safe, if she was recording something she really didn't want to miss she would schedule the same recording on BOTH Tivos instead of just the failing one.

So guess what? We discovered that when the recordings are hanging, BOTH TIVOS ARE DOING IT AT THE SAME TIME! She had a bad recording, decided to watch it on the Humax, and it had hung at the same point. She's been able to confirm multiple instances of this happening over the past few months. I also had her transfer a bad recording to her PC with Tivo Desktop, and it hangs at the same place when watching it there too.

So I'm really stumped. Can't be failing units, it must be something in the signal that is causing this to happen. She has never observed this on live TV through Tivo, though it could just be by chance, nor has she seen it on a third TV with no Tivo, just a cable box (not a 2500).

The only even vaguely similar case I could find on the net was just one Tivo and it was a bad signal splitter. I guess not many folks have two units connected the same way!

I welcome any ideas, though I'm really not expecting a fix at this point. It's more of a technological curiosity for me. Thanks!

TV Eats Itself

Welcome to the end of the Golden Era
By Andy Greenwald on November 6, 2013

"It's good to be in something from the ground floor. I came too late for that and I know. But lately, I'm getting the feeling that I came in at the end. The best is over."

Tony Soprano said these words in 1999, midway through the pilot of The Sopranos. He was right about his place in the history of the Mafia, but not in the history of TV. The Sopranos proved to be the beginning of what came to be known as a “Golden Age” of television, a twin flowering of creativity and technology that elevated a formerly disrespected medium1 into a national cultural obsession….
