(Meant "from S3 after" )
Does anyone know how to rescue recordings when the S3 HAS a dvr expander attached and Tivo has broken web, another Tivo and TivoDesktop access with the 11.3 update.
The S3 still sees Tivo corporate and I can ping the S3, but i none of the functions allowing access work.
It has also broken all of the video on demand components.
It still records just fine
I have a new Roamio coming, but I need some of these recordings
A unexpected surprise last night when I turned on TiVo. Xfinity on demand was activated in the Baltimore area.
I went around and found a few things I would want to watch but everytime I would start the show I would end up with the grey cable card screen.
Any troubleshooting advice?
I currently have a mini that is connected to a 4-tuner Premiere as its host. All works good. I like the speeds and interface of the mini so might consider some more to replace several Series 3s and 2-tuner premieres.
I know the minis now have dynamic tuning, but is there still maybe a limit on how many minis can be associated with a 4-tuner Premiere? Wasn't sure if this older technology has some limitations compared to the newer Roamios.
I'm looking at getting a Roamio and a mini from my cableco. Can you get a different live channel from the mini than what's live on the Roamio at the same time?
I'll be receiving my first TiVo ever today, a Roamio Plus. I'm planning on using the PLSR code for the $399.99 lifetime subscription, but want to make sure everything works right first with our TWC service.
I was just on the web chat with a TiVo rep, and she said there's no grace/evaluation period, so my best bet would be to start with a monthly subscription, make sure everything works, then change it to a lifetime sub within the first 30 days. I'm open to doing that, but will I be able to use the PLSR code if I were to change it from monthly to lifetime? Or is PLSR only usable when I first activate it?
Thanks in advance!
Is anyone else having an issue with NetFlix on the Roamio not remember the password after a week or so?
I is becoming a real pain :( having to re-enter the password so often. NetFlix on Roku has never "forgetting" my password once setup.
I find that the TiVo seems to believe it should skip episodes it thinks it already recorded even when I say "record all episodes" in the season pass.
The problem is that weather alerts, breaking news, cable glitches, boneheaded local commercial insertion, ad infinitum can screw up the recording. I'd really like a way (other than manually marking every item in the upcoming shows list) to have the TiVo really record every single broadcast.
By way of Engadget, we learn that Buffalo Wild Wings has begun swapping out their existing NTN gaming stations for far more interactive (and less bulky) Android tablets.

I guess there won't be any more jokes about the check engine light.

Please forgive me if I'm posting in the wrong spot. But I have noticed that my Tivo has been taking a tuner two and three times in the night. As I'm looking at the system information screen there it is. The last successful service data download was back on February 3, 2014. And since then it goes out looking for the information and take the full 30 minutes to "Receiving" before the last status reads: "Finished."
I called DirecTv yesterday. They tell me they are unaware of any problems like this. They wanted me to restart Tivo, but I had already done this in the beginning of the week as I first notice this problem. My sister has a Series2 as well. And I checked her system information. Yep, her last service data download that was successful was February 3.
I just do not want to have a problem like my sister had May of 2013 when she lost her local channels bacause they could not pust out an update to get 6.4a-01-2-101. She had to wait 2 months before they reprogrammed the patch.

After a while my Mini puts a banner up saying hit TiVo or Live TV to access.
Can this be turned off? Or made to use another key sequence?
If I am watching another input source, eventually the Mini goes into this mode. I don't have the ability to program a TiVo or Live code onto my TV remote, so I have to have the 2 remotes handy for when I switch back.
I would rather just use the TV remote.
I called TiVo today because I started having some random reboots while playing recordings.
I also noticed that the TiVo rebooted Tuesday while recording The Talk and yesterday while recording the Today show.
The TiVo is also forgetting where I leave off when stopping a playback.
Tivos only solution was to remove my external hard drive and see if the problem goes away. They said it would delete all my 339 recordings. I cried foul and she said to just transfer everything to other rooms. I said what about all the show time, Hbo, lifetime etc that won't transfer and she said oh well. And I don't have enough space on the others anyway.
Does anyone have any other suggestions?
I don't think having me delete my 339 recordings is a VALID testing tool. Do you?
And I really don't know how much longer than 3 hours as I couldn't stay awake any longer. Wireless room to room transfer was so much faster between my old Series 2 and 3. Now that I have two Premiers it is just like molasses, watching grass grow, etc. I am overjoyed.
And no I do not have all the new connectivity setup that I probably should. Just using the little wireless G flip open thingy ma bobs.
This is my experience with Comcast in trying to get a cablecard working in my new Tivo Roamio:
Just for general info, I have two cable boxes and a Tivo HD all working fine.
1. Went to the local CCast service place and picked up an M Card.
2. Called the activation # to get said card authorized.
3. It started working but I got no HBO channels that I get on all my other devices.
4. Called the support # back to tell them of this.
Note 1: Every time you speak to an individual you have to give them a bunch of info... phone #, name, address, SS last 4 digits and this is after wading through all the apparently useless auto attendant business. When that person transfers you to someone else you have to give it all again, usually multiple times and frequently I was routed to India and often couldn't understand what they were saying due to poor english language skills. And I suspect when one of them is presented with a problem they don't know how to solve, they just put you on hold a bit and hang up on you.
5. Waited on hold various times over a 30 minute period and was hung up on.
6. Called again...gave the auto-attendant all the stuff it wanted and hung up on again.
7. Called again...talked to another person who transfered me to the 'activation' department (see Note 1) and was told they couldn't help me because the card was already activated. Transfered to 'tech' help. Following another 30 minutes mostly on hold I was told it didn't work because the card had been 'coded' as a cable box rather than a cable card and I would have to return it to the service center for another one.
8. Took that card back to the service place and got a different one.
9. Call back the activation #. It asked for the last 4 digits of the serial number from the card, saying it had to begin with M or G or some third letter. Mine began with a T which was not acceptable so it just kept asking the same thing over and over until I pounded the 0 key to get to a person.
10. (see Note 1) spent about 30 minutes with this person trying to activate the card but it wouldn't work. Transfered to the 'activation' department again (Note 1). 30 more minutes there while it was determined that the card was showing an 'error' when they tried to send it a signal. One more person tried to pair it manually which also didn't work, so they scheduled a service call to get it solved.
11. I decided on my own to take that second card back since it isn't too far away and I figured it would save CCast a service call and get me working sooner.
12. This time they gave me a card that looked beat all to heck but she said they just got it from the 'warehouse' so it should be good.
13. That card was not even recognized by the Tivo, showing it as not installed. I gather that the service place is just handing out broken or dead cards that have obviously not been tested after being pulled from some other service.
Summary: After 3 trips to the service place (the third by choice) and a large portion of one day which I estimate around 4-5 hours on the phone with 'support', I still have no working device and will be waiting several days for a Comcast person to come to my house to hopefully solve this. I am really looking forward to the day when I can dump Comcast and move my Internet and Cable service to a local fiber provider.
I post this partially just to vent but also to ask... what are the odds that it is my new Tivo that is broken rather than a cable card issue?
Instead of selling 3 million subscribers to some other cable company, Comcast-TWC may spin them off as yet another cable company.
That article references this one:
and they say the spin-off would be a new publicly traded company.
Supposedly this would get them the most money for their shareholders for "selling" those customers, but they might be able to convince the shareholders that a quick sale to a single party instead of going through the whole IPO mess might get the merger approved more quickly.
I'd like to see TiVo buy those soon-to-be-kicked-to-the-curb households and show everyone what a TiVo-friendly cable regime is like.
Of course this completely ignores the question of whether all the local franchising authorities are just going to rubber-stamp the franchises changing hands. With enough local pressure, some might even grab the opportunity to renegotiate to make things better for the community.
In place of SHIELD on 3/18, ABC will be airing a special about their movie franchise, "Marvel Studios: Assembling a Universe." Looks like it will be basically a one-hour ad for Captain America, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Age of Ultron, but it might have some cool sneak peeks and behind-the-scenes stuff.
If I have 2 streams on 2 different networks in different locations on the same account will I be able to stream from any TiVo on either network?
