Stream and roamio plus?

Fri, 03/20/2015 - 18:54
I've had a premiere with a separate stream box from the very first day the stream was available. About a year ago, we replaced our older s3 with a roamio plus. Both have been humming along nicely. Today I was doing some rearranging and realized that the roamio plus can act as a stream for the premiere (they are networked via moca adapters). Sorry if this sounds like a dumb question that I've overlooked for a year, but I dont need the separate stream box anymore, do I?

If my wife wants to download to her iPhone at the same time I want to download to my iPad, can the roamio plus handle that? Or should I leave the 2nd stream box active and dedicate it to the premiere?

It seems. UI is slightly differant. Not sure what else yet.

Newbie needs help getting HD thru Roamio

Fri, 03/20/2015 - 17:19

I just got a new HDTV (Samsung 75") and a new Tivo (Roamio HD).

Xfinity came in and placed a cable card. Appears to work well. All the channels come in.

Any time I watch Netflix or Amazon through the Tivo, I see HD quality content. Unfortunately, channel surfing results in all SD quality programming.

I'm new to HD in general. The Xfinity cable guy hasn't been any help.

Is this lack of HD due to poor signal quality? A problem with the cable card? Do I need to upgrade my cable package?

Thanks, in advance, for your help.


FS: TiVo Premiere Remote w/ "On Demand" Button / Charter

Fri, 03/20/2015 - 16:48
I have a TiVo Premiere remote in good condition for sale.

This is a Charter Cable version, with an "On Demand" button and Charter logo on the remote. This works fine with any Series 3, 4 or 5 TiVo.

Selling because I bought a Slide Pro remote to go with my Premiere.

Asking $15 plus postage.

The Americans S03E08: "Divestment"

Fri, 03/20/2015 - 16:28
Well, that "necklace" was x-rated violence in my opinion.

And Phillip/Clark sure picked the right, vulnerable woman. I was so sure he was going to kill her (and frankly, he probably should have - maybe staged her suicide).

I love how Phillip and Elizabeth both bounce back and forth. She's normally a complete hard-ass, but she let's the South African go and she asks her handler to help get Phillip's son out of Afghanistan.

How To Move Videos From Series 3 to Premier

Fri, 03/20/2015 - 15:38
I am retiring a TiVo HD S3 and would like to transfer all of the saved video files to a TiVo Premier. Everything I have found on the forum and the internet refers me to software such as TiVo Desktop or PyTiVo but those programs don't work on copyrighted files. Is there a way to physically transfer all files, including those that are copyrighted and those I have purchased from Amazon from my S3 to my Premier?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Roamio Pro and MoCA setup

Fri, 03/20/2015 - 14:22
I'm looking at switching from Dish to Mediacom but I don't like Mediacom's TIVO box. So I'm looking at buying a Roamio Pro and 2 Minis. I want to use the MoCA networking option to have the Roamio stream to the Minis. However, I'm more than a little confused by the MoCA networking setup.

My Roamio won't be in the same room as my cable modem and so it won't be directly wired to the cable modem.

I think I get that I can create a Moca network at my cable modem. But when I create the MoCA network do I need to have anything connected to the ethernet port on the back of the Roamio Pro?

Audio keeps going out of sync

Fri, 03/20/2015 - 14:14
is anybody else having problem with the Audio going out of Sync with Video? it happens on all channels, and pausing and resetting the Tivo only fixes it for about 10 mintues.

Best way to convert monthly to lifetime?

Fri, 03/20/2015 - 13:09
i have a friend that is still paying a monthly fee for his mini. he asked me today what is the best way to convert it over to lifetime without paying a conversion fee to TiVo.

I told him i would ask the community and see if they had a confirmed procedure.

Now that Plex is supposedly officially coming to Roamios

Fri, 03/20/2015 - 12:34
will I be able to watch Tivo files that are on my computer without converting them to a different format that the Plex server can read? I know nothing about Plex, so excuse me if this is a stupid question. What I would like to be able to do is access all of my TiVo files stored on hard drives for viewing on my Roamio, and not just those that are linked with Tivo desktop and can be transferred back. thanks

The Voice - Season 8

Fri, 03/20/2015 - 12:34
Surprised there was no thread on this yet. Battle rounds are over and we are getting ready for the knockout rounds.

Isn't anyone clearly ahead of the crowd so far imo. I do think the young country girl (the "you're looking at country" singer) is gonna go far though.

Seems like all the steals came from Pharrel's team. Don't know if that was true, but it seemed like it.

Grimm returns in a new timeslot

Fri, 03/20/2015 - 12:06
FYI, Grimm (on NBC) is returning from hiatus tonight, but in an earlier 8:00pm timeslot. (Letting you know in case you need to adjust for new conflicts.)

Also, on the west coast (in my market, at least), NBC coverage of basketball preempts Grimm. TiVo found it for me at 8pm on some obscure channel I never knew I needed. (Letting you know in case you need to seek out where your station has bumped Grimm to.)

Pro vs Plus

Fri, 03/20/2015 - 08:42
Any feedback from people who have both?

I am wondering if, after the 3TB gets more and more content, does it get cumbersome to manage?

Spotify doesn't work

Fri, 03/20/2015 - 07:13
The spotify app will only play one song of a playlist at a time. Occaisionally it will just stop in the middle of a song. I have to manually advance to the next song. My Roku, on the same network, attached to the same TV and sound system works fine. Spotify on iPad wroks fine. The problem is clearly not the network connection.

Tivo support says talk to Spotify. Spotify support says re-install Spotify app. Tivo support says I can't do that.

Comcast vs. FIOS in Philly

Fri, 03/20/2015 - 06:03
Does anyone have any experience with FIOS in Philadelphia? I am moving into an apartment building in Philly next month and was amazed that the building offers a choice between Comcast and FIOS. I plan on contacting both to see what they have to offer, what their reaction is when I ask for cable cards, etc. But before I do that, I thought I would check here to see if anyone has been in this situation before. FWIW, I have FIOS where I live now after switching from Comcast and have been happy with FIOS.
