Picture Flickering while streaming

Thu, 04/09/2015 - 14:16
I recently purchase a Roamio Plus and Mini and connected both to my 5 year old Premiere (Roamio and Premiere are on Ethernet and Mini through MoCA). Now when I stream Amazon/Netflix on my Roamio, the bottom of the picture flickers. This didn't happen when the tv was connected to the Premiere and doesn't happen on the other TVs. One strange thing- when a YouTube video is started, the ad flickers but the video does not. Any help on what to change/do would be appreciated!!

TiVo Classic in Google Play Store

The pre V3 TiVo app is available in the Google Play Store. I installed it and it solved my problem of not being able to stream some recordings.

Did my Tivo change the channels in an SP?

Thu, 04/09/2015 - 12:13
My cableco recently changed some channels from HD to SD feeds. I discussed this in another thread.

This morning, I was checking my To Do list, and a program that I had specifically left on a SD channel has now changed to the HD feed of the channel.

I know that you can set an HD Only option in autorecords for wishlists, but I haven't see that setting for SPs.

Has anyone else seen their Tivo change channels in an SP, when you don't have the All Channels option selected?

Sling- streaming service

Thu, 04/09/2015 - 11:22
I just heard about this service. Seems like it's pretty cool for cord cutters who want to get their sports fix (ESPN). They seem to be adding more and more live TV channels. Anyone know if Tivo will support/integrate like they do with Netflix, Hulu etc.

Roamio With Tuning Adapter

Thu, 04/09/2015 - 10:57
Hi. I have a Roamio and i'm thinking of getting a tuning adapter from Cablevision, so i can watch MLB Extra Innings on the Tivo.

I've read a lot of stories about the reliability of the TA's. So my question is, if the TA fails in some way, will that completely stop the Tivo from functioning, or would it only affect the channels that the TA is needed for? (SDV channels)

Thanks, George

Yahoo Screen - OnePass NOT updating

Thu, 04/09/2015 - 10:26
I have a OnePass set for Yahoo Screen's Community.

It has never updated to the new episodes. When the app was released it was current at that time and listed the 3 available season 6 episodes.

Since the apps release, OnePass has never updated.

The last available episode is stuck on # 3 which was released on 3/24. Since then, episode # 4 was released on 3/31 and episode # 5 was released on 4/7.

You can go into the actual app and watch the episodes but they show as unavailable in OnePass.

Is this because it's a new app or is OnePass just becoming garbage for anything except live TV? I remember there was an issue with OnePass updating to Netflix House of Cards but that delay was nowhere even close to what I am getting with Yahoo Screen.

Community is now 2 1/2 weeks behind and come this Tuesday when episode # 6 is released it will be 3-weeks behind..

Survivor "Keep It Real" OAD 4/8/15 *spoilers*

Thu, 04/09/2015 - 02:47
Wow, Joe is amazing at everything. He wins physical challenges. He wins puzzle challenges. He knows that when he is picking people to take on the reward, he can't just take his alliance. But ultimately, he's got a huge target on his back, he's on the wrong side of the numbers, and he doesn't have a hidden immunity idol. The first time he doesn't win, he's gone.

I can't believe what a d-bag Dan is. He just has no self-awareness of when he needs to shut his mouth. He's the living embodiment of that saying about "Better to keep your mouth shut and have people think you're an idiot than to open your mouth and confirm it." He's done nothing but confirm his idiocy since day one.

I was really hoping Sierra was serious about flipping and voting with the girls to get rid of Dan, and that they could pull over Tyler and Carolyn. But as soon as Sierra was so nonchalant at TC saying that she might flip, I knew it was just an act and that all her blue collar tribe mates knew that she'd fed a line of BS to the Nons.

Hali was kind of a non-factor in the game, so I'm not really sad to see her go, but I am bummed that Joe's alliance is about to be decimated and that Tyler is siding with the Blues. I would love to see Joe and Tyler make it to the end.

Discovery Bar Issue

Thu, 04/09/2015 - 01:16
My TiVo Roamio Plus and Mini 2 recently updated to software version 20.4.7.

Ever since the update, the Discovery Bar on the Mini is missing in action, with a blank space where it should be. I even did a Clear and Delete Everything to try to bring it back, but that didn't work. All other functions appear to be working normally.

Anyone else having this issue? (Yes, I have contacted TiVo support.)

TiVo Mini netflix error v312

Wed, 04/08/2015 - 22:01
Greetings all --

I haven't been on this forum in years; glad to see it's still active.

I recently did the 10yr loyalty promotion and got a Roamio Pro and two TiVo Minis. I have Verizon FiOS and use my own Linksys wrt1900ac router.

After getting Verizon to repair the cable card, most everything is working great... with the exception of Netflix on the two Minis. When I go to start it, I get the spinning ball wheel and then this error message:

Application Loading
Netflix is loading onto the TiVo box.
Please wait a moment and try starting Netflix again (V312).

I've power cycled the minis, tried unchecking and rechecking Netflix in the video providers on the Roamio, reconnecting, power cycling everything. Nothing helps.

I called TiVo support and they are blaming the network, either in my house or at Verizon. They sent me the attached doc, some of which is truncated on the right, but I don't think it matters because the Minis pass the port configuration test, plus I have very little in the way of tricked-up configuration on my router.

My searches here and on the broader internet haven't produced any help. Does anyone here have any suggestions?

tivo slide remote play/select/pause buttons not working

Wed, 04/08/2015 - 19:48
I just plugged in a brand new slide to my tivi mini ( after I didn't realize I had to order a usb dongle the first time ).

I paired by holding Tivo and back buttons, and that worked. But the play, select, pause, up, down, <<,>>, etc buttons do not work on the top of the controller. The circle on the keyboard does.

Any suggestions?

Person of Interest - S4E19 - “Search and Destroy” - 04/07/2015

Wed, 04/08/2015 - 19:45
I was concerned that POI was spending too much time meandering in the last batch of episodes but fortunately they jumped right back into the Machine Wars arc with this episode.

This week’s number is one Sul Khan, a computer genius/visionary similar to Jobs and Gates (with a splash of John McAfee thrown in, I think).
Khan (no relation to “KHAAAANNNNN!) is the head of the world’s largest software security firm.

He’s been hacked and has had everything leaked, from personal emails, financial statements, to nude pictures of his wife.

Obviously, it’s up to Team Machine to find out what’s really going and while the usual suspects are looked at (business rival, wife, best friend), it’s fairly easy to deduce that Samaritan is behind it.

You’d think that Samaritan’s motive would be to eliminate potential rival A.I.s or people who are too close to discover the truth about it, but this time it’s a little different.
Samaritan has been using Khan’s company and resources to search for the Machine.

It’s actually a fairly clever motive but the issue is that Khan is smart enough to realize what’s going on and he wants to know that what he suspects is true, an A.I. has targeted him.

It actually makes sense for Khan to be this way and to eschew Team Machine’s help since they aren’t going to tell him the whole truth (Nice mentions of Simon and Claire there).

Unfortunately, the price paid by Khan for finding out the truth was getting shot to death by Greer.

While it’s nice to see Zoe Morgan again (and we may see more of her now that the 100 has wrapped for the season), she really didn’t have much to do in this episode other than to point out that John’s falling for Iris.
(Ok, she did provide ears in the board meeting.)

While I raised an eyebrow at Root being able to go toe to toe with Martine there, I’ll allow it with the explanation that anger is a great motivator.
I also agree with Root that I liked Martine better as a blonde.
(And was Martine showing some discontent with Greer there?)

I also liked the scene with Reese trying to convince Finch to learn how to shoot. Reese does believe that he will someday die doing this job and he wants to make sure that Finch is safe.
I like that they remind us that Reese and Finch are truly friends and care about each other.

(But really John, calling “Shotgun” while holding a shotgun?)

And what about that case Root stole? It’s not the faberge egg they want but the case itself?

What about the biochip Khan was working on?

Also there was a line from Greer about how the Machine wasn’t on a network.

HDD recommendation for Premiere upgrade

Wed, 04/08/2015 - 18:16
I have a base Premiere (320 GB?) that has been running for a number of years, but is now starting to show some pixelation and other things that make me think the HD is going to go soon. Also, I'd like to expand the capacity a bit.

I have downloaded the JMFS software, and confirmed that I can get it to boot on my PC. I have not yet tried attaching the Premiere drive, as I'm wanting to wait until I get the new drive.

That's where you (the community) come in. I need recommendations on the specific drive to buy, and why one vs. the other.

I'm looking at a 2TB drive, simply because it's a huge step up from what I've got, and I won't have to mess with some of the work-arounds I've seen posted for >2GB drives.

It seems that WD is still the go-to brand, so the question becomes which 2GB WD drive to order. At one time, the WD Green drives were highly recommended, then they fell from favor, now ...? How about Red vs. Purple vs. anything else.

I tried a search, but didn't see anything really recent. If I missed it, please feel free to point me to the relevant thread.

Thanks in advance.

Help Setting up Old HUMAX to Samsung Smart TV

Wed, 04/08/2015 - 17:38
I have an Old Humax with a lifetime service plan that works great with TIVO and now have just bought a new Samsung smart TV 2015.

The TIVO unit is to old for a card from Comcast. I need to be able to hook it all up.

One rep said to buy a N300 Wi Fi USB adapter and they sent me a IR cable. Now they say they won't help or want to sell me a new unit or a refurbished (with no guaranteed for a G adapter).

What to do. I have their IR cable and the NETGEAR N300 Wi Fi USB adapter but no one to guide me.

TiVo Premiere Rebooting Same Time Everynight - Solved

Wed, 04/08/2015 - 17:14
I have a TiVo Premiere that was working fine and and then started rebooting at the same time everynight in a constant loop.

I figured out that a Manual Repeating Recording that I had set that worked before OnePass was causing a constant reboot loop on the TiVo until the recording was done.

I just deleted the Manual Recording Season Passes and have not had any issues.

I just figured I would share this in case anyone else had the issue.

Slide Pro Remote w/ Roamio

Wed, 04/08/2015 - 16:47
Will the slide pro blue tooth remote work with the Roamio Plus? Will the Roamio plus remote work with a series 3 Tivo?
