Hell On Wheels S03E04 OAD 8/24

Mon, 08/26/2013 - 05:34
This episode missed for me. Didn't like the lacrosse game from hell, didn't like the missing baby, didn't like the lack of progression with the Swede. Hopefully it gets back on track next weekend.

Hooray card?

Did everyone get these with their roamio's? I just noticed it only arrived with one of mine.

ATSC Tuner and GUI Speed

Mon, 08/26/2013 - 02:50
How well does the ATSC tuner work in this compared to the Premiere? Also, what's the speed of the GUI like? These are my 2 biggest complaints with the Premiere? Last, can you still use the classic GUI or MUST you use the new HD GUI?

DVRExpander upgrading can be duplicate instead lose recordings

Mon, 08/26/2013 - 01:39
I have a Elite connected to a old WD External DVR Expander 500Gb to 1Tb, with Time Warner isn't possible transfer almost none recording via TiVo Desktop.

So attaching the new DVRExpander will lose recordings, there is an alternative as duplicate the drives or each Tivo perform a recording signature on the DVRExpander.

Thanks for comment

Has anyone have any issues with Pandora on the new base Roamio ? Using Pandora has caused my Roamio to reboot twice. In addition exiting the app seems to take ages to get back to live tv or tivo central.

Any other differences in between the Basic and the Plus?

Sun, 08/25/2013 - 23:15
I'm trying to see the if the plus is worth the extra $200 in my case.

I already knew some of the differences but after looking at this page https://www.tivo.com/shop/roamio#tab1 I found out about the MoCA bridge and remote finder that I didn't know.

Since I'm Ethernet wired, I have a Sling, I can live with 4 tuners and all the other listed differences (read HD) don't mean much to me. I think the basic is the right choice in my case.

Aside form the physical aspect, are there any other differences in between the basic and the plus versions?

American Ninja Warrior - Vegas Finals

Sun, 08/25/2013 - 23:04
Disclaimer: I use mythtv, not tivo, but the guide data comes from the same source (tribune), so it should affect tivo users as well.

Just a heads up for anyone about the finals that aired today on G4. My guide data shows the same 1 hour episode airing every hour from 9pm until 4am. However, it appears that it was actually a 2 hour episode.

Ray Donovan S1E09 "Road Trip" OAD 200130825 **spoilers***

Sun, 08/25/2013 - 22:59
Wow. There have been 9 episodes already!

You could see Mickey's gears grinding and you knew that the Miller was gonna get shot. Mickey should have taken the pictures from the wall.

Now they'll say Miller was killed over a drug deal.

Tommy is not worth the trouble. He dressed so nice for the awards show.

Big Brother - 8/25/13

Sun, 08/25/2013 - 22:45
Elissa is the worst player I've ever seen. With Judd back in the game, she had the perfect opportunity to team up with him, Spencer and GM and turn the game around. They have the numbers, they are just too stupid to realize it. At the very least, Elissa could have at least used her HoH as leverage to secure some deals with other players. Instead, she didn't do jack sh*t. Not surprising, but disappointing nonetheless.

Dexter 8/25/13 "Make Your Own Kind Of Music"

Sun, 08/25/2013 - 22:42
With all this talk about a Breaking Bad spin-off sit-com with Saul, I can't help but think Dexter should get a sit-com spin-off of its own. "The Deb & Hannah Show." Two hot roomies. Who want to kill each other.


Things do seem to be coming together, in the sense that fissile material comes together in the core of a nuclear bomb. I sense a body count coming on...

Breaking Bad 08/25/13 "Confessions"

Sun, 08/25/2013 - 21:31
Pretty cagey. I didn't expect Walt to full on implicate Hank. It's a stop-gap measure for sure, but still.

Another great episode. The train keeps rollin' full steam.

Premiere and roamio MSR.

Sun, 08/25/2013 - 20:11
Trying to figure this out... I have the premiere, hard wired. I want to add another TiVo to the bedroom so that they can share shows. There is no way to get network cable to the bedroom since its in the attic.

But of course I will want the roamio as the new main tivo... How well does the wireless adapter work (for the premiere) and are there any good alternatives?

Edit: MSR? Multi room streaming lol thanks iPhone.

Roamio wont accept My Book AV

Sun, 08/25/2013 - 18:49
After I got it up and running, I connected the My Book AV DVR Expander 1TB and restarted the box (twice). It keeps telling me the drive is unsupported after I agree to allow it to set it up for storage.

Connected to basic Roamio via eSata.

Also seems to be stuck on "Getting info (Downloading...)"

Edit: Finally made it thru download (on wifi with 85% signal).

Roamio Doesn't Appear in Tivo Transfer

Sun, 08/25/2013 - 18:23
I connected my new Roamio directly to my router via hardwired Ethernet cable, but it's not showing up in Tivo Transfer for Mac. My old Premiere is there, but nothing else. Anybody else having this issue?

Tuners 5 and 6 Not Authorized

Sun, 08/25/2013 - 18:14
Has anyone see this before? I have a Roamio Plus with a SA CableCard and when I try to use tuners 5 and 6 all but the in the clear channels say not authorized and to call Comcast. Does Comcast have to do something on their end to get my 5th and 6th tuners authorized? I tested this by recording 4 shows and used the 5th tuner to navigate channels. Then used the 5th tuner on an in the clear channel and used the 6th channel to navigate channels.

Available Space Discrepancy Between Tivo and App

Sun, 08/25/2013 - 17:45
I just finished transferring my recordings from my Premiere to my new Roamio. The available space shows 43% on my TV, but shows as 58% on my iPad app. Anybody else having this issue?

Roamio Plus Troubleshooting Questions

Sun, 08/25/2013 - 17:40
#1 I have the new Roamio Plus setup and was wondering if anyone else has a Mini connected. When my mini is connected but not being used for more than 4 hours it is still using a tuner. I can only record 5 shows at once and that was after a reboot for good measure. Is dynamic tuner allocation not implemented yet in the Roamio? For some reason I thought it was. Also after connecting my mini I can not see it as an option to allow a tuner in Settings and Messages-->Remote, CableCard, & Devices. There was an option in there on the Premiere XL4 I had before that could set how many tuners to allocate.
All I have in this menu now is:

CableCard Decoder
External Storage
Name This DVR
Network Remote Control
Remote Control Setup
Tuning Adapter

#2 Does anyone with a mini connected to a Roamio Plus or Pro have tuner allocation as an option? Also I have Moca enabled and in network settings there is no way for me to see the Moca network status.

#3 With my XL4 when Moca bridging was enabled if I looked in Settings---> Network in the field Type: is says Ethernet Connection + Moca but on the Roamio is just says Ethernet Connection even when Moca bridging has been enabled.

Roamie and TTGO?

Sun, 08/25/2013 - 17:36
Nowhere on TiVo's site do I see mention of TTGO other than transfer to iOS devices. Am I just being paranoid or has this feature been abandoned?

Roamio Wifi Setup Problem

Sun, 08/25/2013 - 17:20
Is anyone having problems connecting their Roamio via Wifi? I'm using the current (6th Generation) Apple Airport Extreme router. After a lot of fooling around, the only way I was able to connect via Wifi was to:

1. Turn off MAC filtering (called Timed Access Control in Apple's Airport Utility). I'm certain I typed the MAC address correctly as shown on the Tivo screen, and I have 9 other devices that connect with no problems.

2. Plug in a hardwired Ethernet cable first, before choosing "Connect Using Wireless." It doesn't make any sense to have to do this for a wireless setup. Even after doing this, the "Network Connection" screen doesn't refresh to show a wireless connection. You have to go to the "Network Diagnostics" screen and come back to it.

If I undo either of those two steps and try connecting again via wireless, I get a "Wireless Network Problem" screen, error code (N06). There are some troubleshooting tips on that screen, and then it says "For more info, visit tiro.com/help/N06," which brings you to a web page that says "Internal Server Error."

I called up Tivo Support, and the representative didn't know about this issue and wasn't very helpful.

Roamio Remote?

Sun, 08/25/2013 - 16:58
So the Roamio remote will work with my S3 but not my Premiere is that correct? Seems backwards to me. :confused:
