How to disable MoCA

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 21:05
How do I disable the MoCA adapter on the Pro?

I have FiOS and a MoCA router.

I have two basics and two pro's on my network.
Since the green switch bug has been fixed, I plugged my ethernet cables back into the pro's.
I still had problems, otehr people reported no problems, so I suspected my switches, so today I went and bough 4 new switches.

After replacing all 4 switches, and plugging ethernet back into both pro's, my network "died".

I've been pulling my hair out to try and figure out what is going on.
I eventually suspected a loop, and I enable loop detection on my main HP Pro Curve switch, and yes, ports get disabled on loop detection.

I think that both tivo's are bridging ethernet and MoCA, and having three bridges on the network is causing loops.

How do I disable the MoCA adapters on the Pro, I just want them to use ethernet?


Error V403

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 20:35
I finally received the new software for the premiere and I am getting a error V403 on wireless connected Tivo to a wired Tivo, but I can transfer show off wireless one to a pc in the same room via wireless then the bedroom Tivo which is wired. Does anyone know why?

I have a Premiere 4, is it worth upgrading?

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 20:00
I recently bought a Premiere 4 (3 weeks ago) used for a great price. I have since upgraded the HDD to 2TB. I am toying with the thought of selling it and buying the Roamio Plus. I know that it has an extra 2 tuners and the HTML5 interface is a bit faster, however I am not sure whether or not it is worth selling it and spending the extra money to upgrade. I figured I would ask you kind folks since I'm sure someone was in the same situation. Any input is much appreciated!

MoCA Ethernet Issue

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 19:54
I need some assistance, Maybe this issue is easy and has been answered before but as someone at the end of his rope im waving the white flag and asking for assistance none the less.

I have the basic 4 tuner Roamio and so far I love it..till I decided to set up a MoCA network.

I have had my tivo up and working for about 2 weeks now and its been great, I had it connected over wireless and it worked fine. I then decided to do a MoCA network so that I could set up a mini in the future. I got the 2 adapters set up correctly as all the lights are on and functional.

I got the ethernet cable going from the 2nd adapter to the tivo and after I reset the tivo it now shows up in the settings that it has ethernet connection and even lists the IP and MAC information.

However the box says it has no internet connection and when I test the network it says that the ethernet cable is unplugged. I took the cable out of the tivo and put it into my Macbook and it worked flawlessly got right on line and everything.

Put the ethernet cable back into the tivo and once again on one screen it says connection type ethernet, lists the IP and MAC address then says on another screen that its unplugged.

Am I missing something?

Also there is no MoCA option in the network settings. Im assuming this will remain the case till i get internet connection working?

To sum up..help

My Shows - can't see programs in other device

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 17:59
Just spent 45 minutes on the phone with Tivo support, but no resolve to the problem. I have 3 units (details below) and two are having problems seeing each other's shows.

1. Bedroom is a Premier
2. Mancave is a Premier
3. Family is an HD

1 and 2 see each other, but won't show each other's programs in My Shows.
1 sees 3 and also can see 3's programs. 3 also sees 1 and it's programs
2 sees 3 and also can see 3's programs. 3 also sees 2 and it's program.

I can transfer between 1-3 and 2-3, but not 1-2.

Hopefully I explained. That clearly.

Anyone ever have this problem?

Is Kmttg not supposed to work with Windows 8?

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 17:33
This is odd.

I have both versions of java installed. I unpacked kmttg as I was supposed to. It downloaded all the tools, successfully accepted my MAK and pulled up my playlist.

Yet, whether I try and download via curl or java, I get errors. With java, something in red saying "bulk dump error" and with curl, I get a long red error that is vertical lines with numbers. And this is after it actually allows the download to start, sometimes getting as far as 30 percent before stopping.

Is it a windows 8/kmttg compatibility issue?

Netflix profile support?

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 15:43
Does the Netflix "app" on the Premiere XL 4 (with latest fall update) support "profiles" in Netflix?

Or does it only work with the main account?

I login to Netflix with a sub-account/profile and choose movies to add to instant queue. When I sign in to Netflix on the Tivo, will it see the sub-account/profile queue or only the main account queue?

Toshiba "expander" dying. Can I transfer to another one?

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 13:26
I have used a Toshiba hard drive in place of the Tivo expander for several years. The Toshiba is making lots of noise so it may be on its last legs. Before it croaks can I transfer everything on it to another external hard drive? If so, will the Tivo recognize it?



DVR Expander on Roamio... More than 1 brand?

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 12:42

Has anybody had any success with a "non WD" eSata hard drive connoted to the Roamio with any success?

I am a new user and would appreciate any feedback.

Thank you so much.

All my best,

I hope Wendy od'd. Not because I dislike her character or subplot but because I want Tara to know that she's ultimately to blame for that death.

Gemma hasn't been barred from that hospital yet?!?!?

There were some good special fx involved in the guy getting run over.

The Latino gang bangers dress really silly.

Slow IN-HOME Transfer Speeds after Update

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 11:51
Ever since the Tivo app update my IN-HOME transfer speeds have been very slow! Did the new Tivo app change the way the downloading goes for the in-home streaming? It seems like I use to be able to transfer a movie in 20-30 minutes. Now it takes double that.

Anyone else notice their transfers IN-HOME slower?

Not a big surprise, but it's nice that it's official...and new showrunner Scott Gimple will return.

What's wrong with my TiVoHD?

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 08:58
Symptoms: Non-repeatable dropouts of video and audio during playback every few minutes on all recordings. TV blinks grey for a split second and the audio drops out for a second or two. Audio does NOT drop out if fed directly from TiVo to Receiver, but it does drop out if feed through HDMI and TV.

I tried rebooting and I saw the startup screens twice, meaning it rebooted itself during the first boot. Took the HD out (Seagate SV35 1GB) and ran SeaTools for Windows on it, passed all tests including the Long Generic. Booted up fine after that. Didn't have time to test it after that to see if the problem went away.

Checked capacitors on TiVo's power supply, none were bulging.

C133 error (Problem with service) BIG EXCLAMATION POINT !

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 07:23
I have had this error many times since the last software update about 10 days ago. My internet is fine and I can connect to my other Tivo so my connections are good. Is this just a Tivo Server Prob? I am hard wired to a non green switch.


Watching live TV on TiVo Mini after DTA update

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 06:56
My TiVo Premiere was updated yesterday, and it looks like that update included support for DTA! So uh...how do I get it to work? When I try to watch Live TV on my Mini now, I get a message that all of the XL4's tuners are in use and that I can't watch live TV until one is free. How do I make one of those tuners free to allow me to view live TV?

UPDATE: I restarted the TiVo Mini, then the TiVo Premiere, and live TV on the Mini seems to be working now. Does anyone know if there's a way to solve this bug short of two restarts?

OOH and Downloads

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 05:53
Will out of home streaming allow download to a device or only streaming. If I watch 8 hours of TV on a flight and then am in a hotel for 2 weeks, I'd like to be able to download another 8 hours of recent programming for the flight home.

TIVO IOS App Looses Connection

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 04:42
I've just upgraded to a Roamio Pro (6 tuners). The main reason I purchased the box was to simplify my setup. Old setup was a TIVO XL (2 tuners), TIVO Premier XL (4 tunes) and a TIVO stream. Now I'm down to one device instead of 3. Been trying to use you IOS Tivo App version 3.2. The problem I'm having is that once connected and I exit the app, it request the Media Access Key (MAK) when I restart the app. The problem is complicated when after entering the correct MAK, I get an invalid MAK error. The only fix, is to delete the app and reinstall the app. Anyone else experiencing this? Also, I was able to copy a 1 hour show to my iPad. The old setup took approximately 18-20 minutes. This new setup took almost 45 minutes. The Tivo is connected to my network via ethernet cable. I have Comcast internet and TV service.

TiVo iOS App can be convinced to stream live TV over cellular in 2013, here's how

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 01:33
To watch a live stream from your Roamio, there is a (clumsy) way to get it going:

If you're not after a live program, it's admittedly easier to forget about my workaround and just download what you're trying to watch over cellular, using bradley's method:
Whichever way you choose, you'll want to keep a close eye on your data usage!

Looking to sell a Tivo HD dual tuner

Tue, 10/29/2013 - 21:36
I am looking to sell my old Tivo Premiere 2 tuner with 160 GB hard drive model number TCD652160. Since the buyer/seller one because it is locked to people who post over 15 times so hopefully this is a good spot to post.

It is in good condition and I still have the original cables. I might be able to find the book but I don't think I have the box. Based upon research I am looking to sell it for $50 plus shipping from Anchorage, AK but the price is negotiable.

Please let me know if you are interested or if you have advice on where else to post. I don't want to sign up for eBay. I just hope to sell to someone that will use it rather than it sitting in my closet taking up space.
