My family has a TiVo Premiere 4 that is connected to the internet and the TiVo service with TiVo's wireless N network adapter. We're very unhappy with the performance of the adapter. Streaming is extremely slow, and the interface as a whole seems sluggish.
I've done some research into alternative ways of connecting our TiVo to the internet, and so far MoCA seems like the best bet, but I wanted to see what you guys think before I order an adapter. So here are some questions:
1. How many MoCA adapters do I need? I thought I needed two, but then I heard that the Premiere 4 is already MoCA enabled so I'll only need one. Is this correct?
2. How much faster/stable are MoCA connections compared to wireless N and standard ethernet connections? Is streaming going to finally be enjoyable? How much of an improvement am I going to notice going from the wireless N adapter to MoCA?
3. What else do I need besides a MoCA adapter? Do I really need any POE filters?
4. Any tips or tricks with regards to MoCA?
I have a TIVO Premier, and Optimum Cable in Brooklyn, NY. Recently, recorded shows on NBC playback w/ an incredibly low volume. I nearly have to turn my external speakers up to 100% to hear the recording.
What might I be able to do to fix this - it's really annoying.
I think my TivoHD motherboard just went bad. No lights on the front, no Ethernet lights on the back, no fan spin up, no startup picture, but the hard drive spins up.
Troubleshooting: Press Tivo button to make sure it wasn't in standby mode. Replaced the power supply with one from a working Tivo HD. Replaced the hard drive with one from a working TivoHD. Still dead after each procedure. Also the PS from the bad TivoHD worked fine in the good TivoHD.
Tivo wants $350 to replace ($149 for new Tivo and $199 to xfer Lifetime). I've considered the WeaKness repair option
, but it's $99 to diagnose plus undisclosed amount for repairs. Has anyone here used the WeaKness repair on a Tivo HD motherboard failure? Are there any other options to consider? Thanks in advance.
After about 10 years of service, my TurboNet card bit the dust. I tested it in my other S1 TiVo (I have 2 :)) and it's definitely the card that is bad, not a software problem. So now I need a replacement because that unit isn't getting updates anymore (dialup is not an option, and I'd rather not do the ppp-over-serial as I'm too lazy). I can use a TivoNet card as well since I have a NE2000 ISA card I could drop in there. In fact that is what I use in my other S1. And CacheCard has built-in networking as well.
So if you have either a TivoNet, TurboNet or Cachecard that you don't use anymore, drop me a PM because I'm interested. :)
I going to replace my Hard drive Monday afternoon I hope. If I do a clear and delete the software still would be left to copy to the new hard drive? I should be able to keep the pairing intact.

I'm considering upgrading my channel package (if only for a day or two) because Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers is showing on IFC tomorrow. What I'd like to know from someone who receives the IFC channel is, des the IFC HD have a watermark/logo in the corner of the screen?
I'm noting that I'm occasionally having trouble resolving www.tivocommunity.com
. I've tracked it down to one of your domain's name servers, dns1.name-services.com. It either gives a "connection timed out; no servers could be reached" from nslookup, or otherwise gives something like this:
> server 184.108.40.206
Default server: 220.127.116.11
> set type=a
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached
www.tivocommunity.com, type = A, class = IN
nameserver = ONWhPXbfMUWo.tivocommunity.com.
ttl = 0
*** Can't find www.tivocommunity.com.: No answer
I suspect that this NS record may be bogus as well since I cannot resolve it.
I have a Series 3 TiVo that I'd like to equip with a wireless N networking adapter. The TiVo branded one seems a bit pricey. Are there any alternatives?
This has probably been asked before, but I couldn't find it. Thanks for any help!
I just went to tivo.com and on the front page it says enjoy your tivo experience on another tv and it shows a remote with a tivo mini. But take a look at the remote, right above the A B C D keys there is a green button. What could it do?
Guide data showed nothing listed for ABC at 10pm it jusr jumped from 9pm to 11pm. Set it for manual record,but if you do a season pass you might want to check if it's going to record. This was for OTA for KABC channel 7 in the Los Angles area.
I'm having loads of problems with my TIVO and port 8080 and its causing the guide to not update all the channel info in the guide.
Here's what's been done so far
Tech comes out and plays with first TIVO for 3 hours finds port 8080 blocked and forwards the port still doesn't open and the TIVO service won't fully patch so after trying everything he installs a used TIVO from the main store that already had guide info on it. It connects to the TIVO network and patches successfully
but port 8080 is still blocked so I turned off the routers firewall altogether port, still closed but he says that since its connecting to the service and patching now I shouldn't have any problems.
Well now after 3 days some channels have no info in the guide again, so
I started trying to fix the problem my self. I've tried everything possible I even went as far as removing everything out of the network and connecting the MOCA straight to the modem still the port is blocked and no the modem doesn't have any firewall or anything that would block any port.
I have a Tivo premier, a Netgear Mca 1001 v2, and a Motorola sufrboard 6121
any help would be really appreciated its starting to drive me crazy and the people from Suddenlink don't seem to know CRAP about what they are doing.
Since you can see tumbleweeds blowing through the TiVo Developer Channel forums, I thought I'd ask here: what's exactly required to get SDK-developed apps up and running? I've followed the steps provided in the Developer Guide (url developer.tivo.com/docs/read/sdk/guide ) with little success getting the "Hello TiVo" app to run.
I can see the "Hello TiVo" application get retrieved fine from the FlashAppServer on my Windows 7 machine, yet when I try to run it I get V301 errors. The TiVo forums seem to suggest I might need to get a developer flag set (url developer.tivo.com/forum/read/157875 ) which hopefully will happen soon? I registered my TSN days ago (even though my model - Premiere XL, was the only Series 4 model not available in the drop-down) and have connected to the TiVo service many times since then.
Does anybody have any advice or know who I can contact to get my system up and running?
Thanks in advance!
Just found this article. Not sure what to make out of it. Here's a small part of it:
TiVo (Nasdaq: TIVO) has developed a "transportable digital video recorder" which would allow viewers to download content to a mobile device using a docking station, USB or Firewire connections, according to a patent application published late last month.
The invention provides a transportable digital video recorder system. The invention gives a user the ability to record and play back TV broadcast programs and digital video using a compact portable small form factor transportable digital video recorder package. In addition, the invention allows the user to store selected television broadcast programs while the user is simultaneously watching or reviewing another program," TiVo states in the patent application.http://www.fiercecable.com/story/tiv...dvr/2013-07-12
My main TivoHD is month-to-month, has a 1TB WD expander attached, but is full to the brim with my OTA shows.
I'd like to transfer all the shows to another, lifetime, TivoHD (upgraded to 2TB) via both connected to a switch via Ethernet.
Is simply queuing up one show after another the only way?
I've transferred shows via Wi-Fi before and that took...a while.
What happens when tornados and sharks combine? TV movie magic! American Pie actress Tara Reid and Beverly Hills, 90210 star Ian Ziering star in the over-the-top new cable TV movie, Sharknado, that looks so bad, it just might be amazing!
In the Anthony C. Ferrante-directed film, a powerful storm drives all the sharks into the path of a deadly tornado that then makes them "rain down" over L.A. "The tornado is heading towards the airport," a frightened Reid, 37, says in the trailer. "We need to destroy it before it gets to it!"
I can't be the only person who Tivo'd this masterpiece on SyFy. I'll probably watch it on Saturday when I can fully appreciate its greatness. If it's anything like Sharktopus or Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus it'll be soooo bad it's bad, but fun.
So I was just sitting in my den in the midst of a thunderstorm watching TiVo with my TiVo remote in my hand like I usually do. A particularly loud and close boom just occurred. My immediate reaction was to hit the 7 second rewind button so I could catch the flash of lightning to compute how far away the strike was!
Has anything like this ever happened to anybody else while watching TiVo?
