I am wondering if TiVo is a "sole source provider" for the Western Digital My Book DVR Expander. I just spent close to $1000 for my TiVo Roamio and lifetime service so I was looking for a way to save a few bucks on the external hard drive. I bought one on Amazon that said it was TiVo compatible, but when I tried to install it, the screen said it was not supported by TiVo. I returned it, but I am looking for one that will work without having to pay $200 for it. Any suggestions?
Another new premiere.
This one I will have to watch a few episodes, being that the whole season is 1 night at a bar, and 10 stories to tell, but I see that they are already getting around that with lots of flash backs.
Ratings were not great, ok they were lousy, especially following "Modern Family".
Just might be an early night.
I have two Roamio's in one room. I know how to set them up to receive different IR code sets and I seem to have all the hex codes for both sets of buttons except for the Clear and the Enter buttons. Does anyone know the hex codes for them?
Just installed my new Roamio last night, and everything looks pretty good, but from what I understand, there will not be any updates to the page at https://www.tivo.com/tivo-tco/go.do?...webvideos.page
, and RSS videos aren't being added to the Roamio via that page.
That's really a shame because one of the ideas behind the Roamio was to mix my OTA with Netflix/Hulu/Youtube and get podcasts downloaded too. Is there any alternative for doing so, or any way to get Tivo to update that page and add feeds from Revision3 or other newer sources?
Selling my TiVo HD with Lifetime service, it has been upgraded with a 2TB hard drive purchased from DVR_DUDE on eBay.
It is clean as a whistle inside and out. It comes with the remote.
Not advertised on eBay yet. I would rather give TC members first shot.. and avoid eBay fee's of course.
I had this ad served up by TCF just now. I don't know if there's some setting that you could make to avoid this.
Not that I mind it - I don't - but probably the ads should be in a language (and alphabet) that I can read... :)

Hey guys I got banned from this board, so this is going to be my last post here so I want to make it a good one.
If you are on the fence about buying a Roamio, don't be, the Roamio line is the best product line up TiVo has ever had. Every single complaint we had for the last 6 years were addressed by TiVo with this lineup.
Don't get me wrong they have bugs and maybe our requests could have been implemented better, like same channel recording using only 1 tuner. But they are trying and, with each update we get a better product not worse, the same could not be said for the premiere line.
Also MoCa is really easy so many people here go through so much frustration trying to get wifi to work, trust me try MoCa or power line one of them will work for you.
And please don't listen to anything bad about TiVo from a guy who's name is some half assed insult to TiVo. There is lots a bad things about Tivos and good, but these guy who show up and create an account just to say a product sucks is not someone to trust.
Last thing please don't pay someone to sell you a discount code, don't, it's not a scam or crime but it is people abusing the system to rip off other people. It's just wrong for you or anyone to pay $200 bucks to someone who is providing you with nothing. Contact TiVo or buy from best buy or amazon. Now people who bought these codes and realized they were a bad deal are now trying to sell full units for $25 dollars off retail. Just last week, a base Roamio was 100 dollars at best buy after price match and a $50 dollar gift card, lifetime on the unit would bring the total to $500 he is asking $575. Plus you have to buy from a total stranger with no protection.
That's it, that's my advice good luck and God bless.
I just upgraded my Premiere to a Roamio, which is in an open air rack. Previously, I had my PS3 Slim on top of the Premiere. I had read that stacking things on top of the Premiere was fine, and I never had any heat problems. The new Roamio is a different shape, slightly rounded on top, making the PS3 less steady. I'm concerned that the new shape means I shouldn't be putting anything on top of it, but can't really find anything anywhere saying if I should or not. Rearranging the PS3 or Roamio to a different spot on the rack would be cumbersome with the cabling, but preferable to causing either the PS3 or Roamio to overheat. Should I go through the hassle, or is it fine to keep my PS3 on top of the Roamio?
Anyone got an old S2 TCD140060 unit they're not using? Want to sell me the power supply out of it cheap? I have a S2 with lifetime with a dead power supply, but I'm not willing to spend $70 to get one from Weaknees.
I also have two S2DT units and two S2 TCD540080 units sitting in the closet (non-lifetime) that I'd be willing to trade parts out of if you want to just swap.
Trying and failing to upgrade my Premiere with a blank 2009 model WD10EARS. Successfully upgraded my HD S3 to 1T years ago.
CD booted jmfs - rev.104 gets to this point and fails. Tried four separate computers and multiple cabling configurations (sata, usb) and all fail at the same place within five minutes. Something basic wrong? All advice/help would be appreciated. Thanks.
I see that this TiVo has no current bids and I just checked with TiVo and Shawna said it has lifetime. Check the pictures out and call to TiVo to make sure it does have lifetime. If no one wants it I will bid on it and then resell it. I hate to see a lifetime service go to the recycle bin.
There is a HD TiVo on that site too, but Betsy says that is DOES NOT have lifetime.
In sections for the older TiVo's many or their secrets have been posted such as the "Select" codes and I think the other were "Clear" codes. Do we know if some or any of those work with the Roamio an has anyone found any new secrets or ticks this high performance beauty will do? I have the 30 second skip enabled but not sure of anything else.
Recently a Spanish language novella has popped up on my To Do list shown as a wishlist recording. I can't figure out how it is related to any wishlist item I have as all the words are in Spanish and don't come close to anything in my wishlist.
It's a pain to go through the To Do list and cancel the scheduled recordings as the program is on five days a week.
I thought maybe if I put a couple of thumbs down on this program it would get rid of it, but no dice.
Have Pioneer Series 2 Tivo with built-in dvd burner. Currently use rental set top box from cable company. Does anyone have info on purchasing retail set top box that has cable card capability? Will likely need one with ir blaster to change station on Tivo. I have reviewed Samsung GX-sm530cf but it does not have ir blaster or rca output cables to input into Tivo.
Thank you for any advice.
P.S. Pioneer Tivo is 11 years old with original hard drive.
Noob question here:
As a new owner of a Roamio, one of the little tiny nit picking things I'm experiencing is when I'm done watching a recorded show, the deleting process is a bit tedious. Is there a faster way then hitting the Back key and going in the resulting menu?
Other than that, so far its a great experience compared to the Cox/Scientific Atlanta DVR nightmare...
Just recently (Feb2014) my Series3 has had problems finding my video shares on my PC. Upon a fresh reboot of the TiVo, it sees my shared folder on the PC just fine, but sometime after it 'forgets' that the "Tom-PC" device is available. It doesn't show up at the bottom of the now playing list, and when I look for the server in the other menu, the Tivo says that the server at that IP address is no longer available.
Rebooting the PC and/or the Tivo Desktop server has no effect. A reboot of the Tivo solves things temporarily, as does unplugging and reseating the cable from the Tivo wifi-N dongle.
Anyone experiencing similar problems, or have any ideas what might be wrong?
There wasn’t a whole lot of interesting news out of TiVo’s quarterly call for retail customers. Despite the holiday shopping season, bolstered by multimillion dollar radio and airport advertising campaigns in select markets, TiVo only managed to net 6,000 additional retail subscribers — keeping the count at 2004 levels. Having said that, TiVo CEO Tom Rogers indicates […]
The post Xfinity On Demand Coming To All Comcast TiVos appeared first on Zatz Not Funny!.
We got a message in a black rectangle size box w/white letters stating I need to "connect to TiVo in 3 days" and something about the TiVo we have can no longer be used. Something along those lines.
What is going on?
