Revolution - SE02E01 - "Born In The USA"

Wed, 09/25/2013 - 21:11
Strange things are afoot in the air!

Off to a grand start. There seem to be an awful lot of strange acting lightning bugs. And, who are these new "war" gang guys? And, are those people from the Cuba "colony" the real American government or another interested party?

For those who were always criticizing Aaron about his weight, looks like he lost some over the hiatus.

I knew if we gave the writers enough time, they'd figure out a way to bring "living dead" into the series. :eek:


Roamio is on the way... (FanBoy Warning)

Wed, 09/25/2013 - 18:49
Nice... Order placed on Monday, shipped on Tuesday, scheduled delivery is Thursday with the free standard shipping.

As an admitted TiVo fanboy and something of a tech geek, I can't wait for the setup process and the exploration of the new model! I already had Friday off, and now the day off will be even better...

I still remember the day I setup my first one, the first generation Phillips TiVo! To this day, there has been nothing I have ever purchased that had a greater Wow effect than that first TiVo. A new car, an HDTV, Smartphones, computers, GPS's, blah, blah blah.. That original TiVo is still the coolest thing I have ever purchased in my life.

Just sayin!

(still don't like the Roamio name, but whatever)..

How to change replay to 30s skip back?

Wed, 09/25/2013 - 18:41
Hi, how can I change the replay button to perform a 30s skip back?

I.e. to make the skip forward and replay buttons behave like skip forward and skip back, with equal amounts of time.


I missed Premiere of S.H.I.E.L.D due to 28 day rule, WTF?????

Wed, 09/25/2013 - 17:43
I previously set up a season pass for the new Marvel Agents of SHIELD. THe process went fine (and I believe I had to bump the priority of the SP to make sure it recorded).

The show was broadcast last night. Around 10:30 I went to watch it. IT WASN'T THERE. I went to Recording History - it skipped it "because it had already been recorded within the last 28 days"...


Actually, I suspect I know what happened - the Marvel show may have some sort of ID code that erroneously mapped to something I already record. Doesn't make it any less painful. I changed the setting to "record everything (incl. duplicates)". But I'm really bummed, and now that much less distrustful of my TivoHD.

Did anyone else experience this? Was there any way to avoid it?

Can't reorder season passes or delete recrodings

Wed, 09/25/2013 - 17:36
Last night, my Roamio got into a state where I couldn't reorder season passes and couldn't delete shows. I restarted it and it worked fine until just now when it has started doing that again. I'm going to restart again right after 7 EDT. Does anyone have any ideas why this may be happening to me all of a sudden?

Trying to setup Soyo TV w/ Mini - can't find remote code that works

Wed, 09/25/2013 - 16:56
I have reviewed the threads regarding the remote codes for a Soyo TV. The one that seemed to work for others is Pronto 0165. I tried all the Pronto codes and none of them worked. I even tried 0165 twice (definition of insanity?!?). :(

Does anyone have any other remote codes that have worked on a Soyo TV that I can try? Thanks in advance!

Amazon Videos on Roamio, but not the Mini?

Wed, 09/25/2013 - 16:39
I just recently acquired the Roamio, Roamio Pro, and a couple of Minis. The Roamios have NetFlix, Hulu Plus, and Amazon Instant Video On Demand. But the Minis do not have the Amazon option. Does anyone know why?

When I bought these I thought they all had Amazon (Prime) capabilities, so was disappointed when that option wasn't there on the Minis or Roamios.

Service activation

How long after subscribing to the guides service ($14.99) will it take my roamio plus to activate? It's been several hours since I signed up.

iOS7 not sleeping?

Wed, 09/25/2013 - 15:05
I've been using the Stream for over a year now while going to bed. The way it has always worked is if I fall asleep during a show when it gets to the end of that show the TiVo app goes into a state where it allows the iPad to fall asleep. So I wake up in the morning and the screen is off and the iPad is charged.

A few times over the last week, after upgrading to iOS7, I've woke up in the morning with the screen still on, paused on the final frame in the video. This not only means my screen was on a static image for 6+ hours, which can't be good, but it means the iPad doesn't charge because I'm using a 5v iPhone charger in the bedroom and apparently that's not enough for it to charge while the screen is on.

I ran some tests while awake and it's sporadic. Sometimes when it gets to the end of a show it puts up the "delete?" dialog and the iPad falls asleep after 5 minutes. Sometimes it stalls at the end and the iPad never goes to sleep. Doesn't seem to be any pattern as to why either one occurs.

Is anyone else having this problem?

The Goldbergs - Series Premiere

Wed, 09/25/2013 - 13:01
I can see this show becoming a hit with some fine tuning. The cast is great, as is Patton Oswalt as the narrator. The mom cracks me up, as I always loved her character on Reno 911. She appears to have lost a lot of weight since that show left TV. Jeff Garland as the father is my favorite, he can just about say anything and I'll laugh. The grandfather talking to the youngest son about boobs was unexpectedly hilarious. Overall that was about as much as you can expect from a pilot. I look forward to seeing how this show plays out this season. I'm in.

Sheldon Maid

Wed, 09/25/2013 - 11:53
Saw a promo on TBS for Big Bang Theory had Sheldon in a french maids outfit, I thought I had seen every ep never saw that which one is it? The only thing I can think of was in the last minute they have at end, after commercials got cut off in a lot of my recordings.

Submit RSS Video to TiVo

Wed, 09/25/2013 - 11:38

On that page, there's a link at the bottom that says "or submit it to us". Clicking that sends you to here, which generates a 404 error:


So how are we supposed to do that? Anyone know what the true link is there?

CSpire Fiber to the Home

Wed, 09/25/2013 - 10:49

Just heard about this CSpire initiative to bring Gigabit fiber to the home. I really want to know if CSpire will be able to support TiVo's and cablecards. I've asked CSpire and am waiting to see if they'll answer. But I thought I'd ask here in case someone has already gotten an answer.

Fiber at 1Gbps up and down with television/TiVo support would rock!

Roamio TivoToGo settings

Wed, 09/25/2013 - 09:47
The other night I was trying to stream a show to the Bedroom Roamio and I kept getting an error that said that "This Tivo must be on the same account". I though this message was a little odd since it worked the day before without any glitches. So I logged in to my Tivo account and notice that one of the check boxes was unchecked for "Sharing Video". So I checked the box and saved the setting and did a force check in for the Tivo having the problem. I notice on the Settings page that the Tivo To Go setting was i,i,i,i and after the force check in the Tivo To Go setting changed to a,a,a,i. This was different then my Other Tivo Roamio which was set for a,a,a,a.

I have tried multiple force connections and I still have the settings of a,a,a,i. What does this mean? I can transfer video back and forth from both devices but I can not stream from the Bedroom Tivo. I can however stream from the Living Room Tivo just fine. I have tried rebooting the Bedroom unit twice and still can only transfer. I have even gone back and toggled the settings in my tivo account for "shared video". I am more curious as to why the setting was unchecked in the first place.

If you look at the help page for Tivo it only shows the settings for Tivo To Go as a,a,a but I have a,a,a,i on one and a,a,a,a on the other? Is the Tivo support page wrong here? Has anybody else ran into this problem?

Time Warner & CCI protection byte

Wed, 09/25/2013 - 09:00
I found in the last 48 hours Time Warner in NYC has set CCI protection byte for broadcast channels(CBS, NBC, ABC).

So, I've lost the ability to download shows to my ipad, which I use traveling.

Any suggestions?

Clearly calling Time Warner's customer service number is getting me nowhere.

The Trophy Wife "Pilot" S1E1 09/24/2013

Wed, 09/25/2013 - 08:50
This was funny! I was very pleasantly surprised. Only recorded because I typically try to watch all new sitcoms, and honestly, I didn't have high hopes, nor did I really care. Just didn't sound that appealing. And the reviews were mixed.

And this is why we actually WATCH THEM. I thought this was funny, and for a pilot, surprisingly well-fleshed out. First off, the actors are great. Between Malin Ackerman, Bradley Whitford, Marcia Gay Harden and others, they have an amazingly deep cast. Both Whitford and Harden could do this in their sleep, yet they really seemed to bring their A game (ok, no more cliches).

It was funny, had a catchy plot, no characters you immediately hate or think "miscast", but mainly, kept me laughing and entertained the entire time.

If I had a single complaint, it would be the sheer number of characters we had to meet. But any sitcom pilot faces this, and I'm sure within a couple of eps, they'll be family.

Again, as with many sitcom pilots, the first five minutes have some cringe and you want to delete it right then. But unlike most pilots, where it takes an episode or two before the fun overcomes the cringe, within minutes I was liking this.

I have no idea what the buzz is, or if anyone watched. It may be doomed from the start. But I liked it.

Try it!:up:

Considering Slingbox 350 or 500 with my Roamio Pro

Wed, 09/25/2013 - 08:24
Anyone using one of these sling box models with Roamio? I have read the 500 HDMI passthrough may not work due to HDCP, so it looks like the cheaper 350 may suffice.

Does anyone know if there are confirmed plans to provide access to Roamio over browser so I could watch without a Slingbox on my PC?

With IPTV becoming the standard (twc supposedly rolling out next year) has anyone heard anything about an IPTV TiVo?

Hostage - S1 E1 - Pilot - 9/23/13

Wed, 09/25/2013 - 07:23
I was surprised two days later, no thread.

I watched this last night I have to say, I enjoyed it. There was plenty of suspense and not much info given for the reasons, other than one of the President's cabinet members appears to be behind it. A lot more to find out.

The only thing I didn't like all that much was how they portrayed the hubby and the two kids. Too predictable that they were all going to be troubled.

The hubby....as soon as he said he had to go coach Lacrosse, I said, he's having an affair (of course he goes and DOES coach lacrosse, but I was right anyway!!)

The son...seriously, a drug dealer? He couldn't be a normal kid? I know this is probably a setup for the drug supplier he owes money to to show up at the door.

The daughter..It's become so cliche these days that EVERY teenage girl has to get pregnant. Oh well. We'll see if they hold the hostages long enough that the baby comes into play.

Hopefully this doesn't go completely off the rails like most of these series do.
