TiVo Premiere TCD746320

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/12/2015 - 11:36
Selling one TiVo Premiere TCD746320 with stock 320GB drive. This is a two-tuner model that supports OTA (antenna) and/or cable.

Comes in original TiVo box, with brand new remote control and power cord.

There is a small blemish on the front of the unit, which does not affect use.

This unit was last running on a $6.95/month rate, which may be transferable to a new owner. I couldn't get a clear answer out of TiVo about this.

Asking $50 plus shipping. Or make me an offer.

Complete Power Supply Failure

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/12/2015 - 11:23
Hi, I have a Tivo HD that worked perfectly till a power outage yesterday. There were three times in about fifteen minutes the power failed in my home. At this point I switched off the breaker to my family room but this was apparently too late, now with the power on there is nothing from the Tivo. No lights, no harddrive activity, and no fan. I pulled the cover and checked for voltage on the back of the motherboard connector from the power supply and found zero voltage on any of the wires. Ground was good. I see a lot of failure stories about capacitors but the symptoms are usual boot loops not complete failure.

My question is this still possibly just capacitors or am I looking for a complete new power supply?

Does the TiVo OTA for $50 come with the same Roamio replacement remote that costs $40 + shipping ?

Sheldon and Leonard had quite a talk. Sheldon is going through a lot of changes but I'm glad to see they are moving the character forward.

Two Weeks With Roku TV

I wasn’t the only member of the Zatz family that picked up a new television this season. And, unlike my Vizio experience, Mom has been quite pleased with the two TCL Roku TVs I chose for her. Of course, her expectations and tolerances in this realm are far more, uh, relaxed than most of our regulars – so […]

Maybe coming back to tivo

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/12/2015 - 06:26
Been a direct tv customer for yrs. live in a condo and decks being redone so I need to take my satellite dish down. Wanted to reinstall dish but may not be able to secure it to deck on tripod like before because of new bylaws. My dish is on a 10-'foot pool to clear roof line. So may have to go with cable. Saw the new TiVo boxes and like what I see vs cable dvr. My question is about overall cost. I would need one box for the living room then a mini for bedroom. So I need to buy both then pay a monthly fee for each. Also may need to set up Moca for streaming to mini. So what's that run per month. I know I save on rental fee from cable box over time but isn't it a lot more expensive. Have to go with cablevision in my area which I hate to do but have to choice. fios not an option.

A few minor feature suggestions that would be very helpful and a question

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/12/2015 - 00:06
I truly love my Roamio, but have a few suggestions that would improve it even more.

-In the iOS apps when viewing the guide, it would be very convenient if it were shown which programs are set to be recorded. Simply changing the program guide entry from the default color to red or having a check mark in the entry like the Roamio guide does would improve the usability of the guide immeasurably. As it is you have to click on a program to go to the info screen about it and in that info screen it says whether the program is scheduled to record or not.

-On the Roamio when I am browsing through upcoming episodes of a program it would be extremely helpful if the list of episodes would indicate whether or not I have recorded that episode or not. For example I like to record all episodes of Wheeler Dealers. Frequently I will go into the upcoming list to view future episodes. But I cannot tell if I have already recorded the episodes in the upcoming list. To check I have to exit out of the upcoming list and go to my Shows and search for it.

If there is already a way to do either of the things I mentioned above please let me know.

And now my question: why are some of the settings screens still in SD? I can't imagine it would be difficult to upgrade those to HD like the majority of the UI. And in 2015 SD screens on a device are unusual.

Thank you

P.S. I saw OnePass at CES and it looked fantastic. But the Roamio I tried still had the SD screens I asked about above.

Use Netflix and Amazon apps without tivo subscription?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 01/11/2015 - 23:24
Can I use Netflix and Amazon on the Roamio without needing the monthly Tivo subscription? I know this seems like a silly question but let me explain.

I've been doing some research trying to find devices that will play Netflix and Amazon streams at 1080/24p. I hate judder and prefer watching content at the original frame rate.

From what I've read the Roamio is possibly the only device that does what I need, but I don't really need a DVR because I don't watch very much TV.

I thought about purchasing the Roamio OTA from best buy but I wasn't sure if the device would be totally crippled and not allow access to the Netflix and Amazon apps if there is no subscription attached to the box.

New Roamio Wifi/Netflix issue

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 01/11/2015 - 22:35
I just received my new Roamio (standard model for use with my HD antenna). I am replacing my old HD model which recently started randomly rebooting. I also wanted the Roamio to get access to streaming Amazon Prime.

I am hooking up to my home network via wireless, which apparently is a real problem for the Roamio. After reading several suggestions online, I was able to get it to initially set up by using a wired connection from another room. Now it is in place and working via wifi, except when I try to stream Netflix it begins the program but then after 1-2 minutes, it stops and buffers up to 25%, where it hangs and then tells me there are network problems. The wifi connection is strong (90%-100% reported) and the Netflix server check comes through just fine. As soon as I switch back to a wired connection (in the other room) it works perfectly. Another symptom of my problem is that my entire wifi network actually goes offline if I leave Netflix attempting to load. Amazon Prime does the same thing. The old HD with the USB wifi adapter had no problems connecting and streaming Netflix.

I am using a DLINK DIR-655 router and I have updated the settings to what I have found via online research: Uncheck "multicast streams" and uncheck "enable DNS relays". Still having the problem.

Can anyone point me in the right direction here? I am concerned if I call TiVo support I'll be told to start at the beginning with "restart your modem and router", etc.


U-Verse on a Tivo?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 01/11/2015 - 21:17
So I'm fed up with ATT's high price, long term contract, and bad customer service. The only way to talk to a human is by threatening to cancel.

So I have already decided to switch back to the -slightly- lesser evil, TWC. At least their people answer the phone.

Best part is I can come back to Tivo. I bought a Roamio Pro and mini. TWC won't be hooked up until next week, but I wanted get the Tivo set up first.

in the setup process the Tivo gave me 2 choices for providers:
TWC and U-Verse.

Why would U-Verse show up if it's not in any way compatible with a Roamio?


CNBC Closing Bell 1/9/2015

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 01/11/2015 - 20:49
Does anyone have a recording of Friday's Closing Bell from CNBC? I'm looking for the whole show, not just the bell ringing video. The company my wife works for rang the closing bell and we were on the trading floor for it. For a few minutes before the bell ringing you could see us wandering around in the background. I recorded it at home but it was pretty pixelated in a bunch of places.

If anyone could help me out, I'd appreciate it.

Why are "Will Record" counts wrong?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 01/11/2015 - 19:00
In the Season Passes menu season passes are lit up white to indicate something will be recorded, and it will say something like "1 Will Record" for that SP. If I go to Upcoming in that SP I frequently see that fewer or even no episodes are actually scheduled to record. Says 1 actual 0, says 3 actual 2, etc. It's not always off by one though. In any case, the count is simply wrong. What's up with that?

2015 Golden Globes Awards

I'll start off with a few in the movies, drama categories. Will skip musical/comedies because I haven't seen any of the films involved except for one

Best Movie, Drama (I've actually seen all of these films. Selma just yesterday)

-- Boyhood

Best Actress in Movie, Drama

-- Felicity Jones in Theory of Everything (only performance I saw in this category)

Best Actor in Movie, Drama

-- Eddie Redmayne in Theory of Everything (I have seen all performances except Jake Gyllenhaal in 'Nightcrawler'. I could see David Oyelowo or Steve Carrell wining too.)

I guess 'American Sniper' was released too late for consideration this year?
