i have cat 6a run throughout my house. my patch panel is a cat 6 panel.
on my HP gigabit switch, i have minis blinking gigabit connection but roamio pro blinking 10/100. does this sound right to anyone?
can I record an on-demand show? some will expire soon and I want them to see later on.
Wondering if anyone has heard about cancelled shows? Specifically Almost Human?
I hope not, but what I am reading online is that it's a maybe. However, I am just doing a general google and not sure where to go for specifics if they are out there.
New A&E drama 'Those Who Kill' starts March 03, 2014.
Based on the Danish TV crime series inspired by bestselling author Elsebeth Egholm, "Those Who Kill" stars Chloë Sevigny as Catherine Jensen, a brilliant police detective who tracks down serial killers. Jensen is also investigating her stepfather, who may be a serial killer, while searching for her missing brother. She enlists the help of Thomas Schaffer (James D’Arcy), a forensic psychiatrist, to help her understand the minds of serial killers, all the while luring Schaffer into her own personal investigation. Both characters possess a deep psychological understanding that connects them to the killers' victims and to the killers themselves.
First episode is out on usenet.
As the 22nd Winter Olympics came to a close in Sochi, Russia – one thing was for sure – these Olympic Games will never be forgotten. From the opening ceremony with technical issues to controversy over housing and facilities being subpar to the blood, sweat and tears from the athletes as new world records were created and childhood dreams came true; it all came to a close last night at the Closing Ceremony. By no surprise TiVo’s Top Moment of the Closing Ceremony came about 42 minutes into the ceremony Continue Reading
So, last night, my 3 month old pro had its first hiccup.
A spontaneous reboot while watching a show (Amazing Race) while it was still recording that (I was about half an hour behind real time) and at least one other show.
The show paused, and then started again after about 2 seconds, and then the whole thing rebooted.
Interestingly enough, unlike all of my previous TiVos, when it was finished rebooting, it *didn't* continue to record the shows. Is that new behavior known? (Or, am I wrong, and none of them do that?)
Anyway, I'll have to keep my eye out to see if this is the beginning of a hard drive failure, or something else...
This isn't meant to be another rant.
I was just curious why it is taking so long for TiVo to develop steaming for Android?
I'm sure that that it's more difficult to develop this than I am giving them credit for. Is it just that this isn't the limited platform that iOS is? What are some of the other difficulties?
To me it just seems like they are not willing to invest the necessary resources. If they really wanted this done it would be done. (Okay, that was a small rant.)
But seriously, what are the difficulties that I am not aware of? How hard can this be?
NBC's sci-fi series Heroes is being revived as a 13-episode limited series, with creator Tim Kring back at the helm but a new cast of characters and a self-contained storyline that's "shrouded in secrecy."
Well, off to a flying start - l'm glad we've had our share of "C'mon Twinnie" for this season! Those two were just too stupid to be in the Race. They seemed more interested in blaming each other than racing!
So pleased to see the Cowboys win. At least we know there'll be no shenanigans with the Express Passes.
Also hoping KY does well after the news of one of them having to drop out. Malory is not particularly a favorite, but I'd love to see them do well.
Here's hoping the Afghanimals go soon.
I have a Roamio and downloaded a couple shows for my kid when we were on vacation. It downloaded the same show several times. The were titled as the show I downloaded but when played were all the same episode. I deleted the wrong show and downloaded again. And again it was wrong. I did notice the downloaded sizes did not match. I then tried to stream the show and it worked without a problem.
Any ideas how to get it to download the right shows in the future?

Too bad about Mark not being able to race. That would really suck to find that out the night before the race starts.
I wonder if Mallory and her dad were a standby team and already in LA or if they made an emergency call to her and she hopped on the first plane.
There were some spectacular views of that tower and of the city.
So glad to see the Twinnies eliminated. I remembered not liking them the first time they were on, but by the end of this episode I already couldn't stand them again. If they had let me choose which team to eliminate first, it would have been them.
Loved the dramatic tension in the house with Rick hiding from the intruders.
Michonne is very pretty when she smiles ... glad she is still there.
Glenn is a self-centered a-hole for stubbornly jeopardizing four people so he can continue his quest for Maggie.
I'm not crazy about that scientist fella'. He'd better be worth it.
And the butt on Rosita the new girl ... wow! <boing!>
I can see Abraham Ford is going to be a big player. A man on a mission.
I have a 1tb HDD in my Tivo HD DVR now. I’m going to use WinMFS to clone it to a new 1tb HDD that I’ll keep as a backup HDD.
My question, concern:
I’ve read that I should change the swap partition size from the default size of 128mb to half the size of my new HDD but in mb; not gb. That would be 500mb.
I’ve also read that I should leave the 128mb swap size alone.
I’m confused. What should I do??? And please justify your answer to change or not to change.
I cannot figure out how to do this, yet I cannot believe it can't be done. I want to create a season pass that includes both new and repeats, keeping a max of 10 episodes, but I don't want new episodes to be overwritten by repeats. So for example, I have a season pass for Chopped. Every time there is a Chopped marathon, it overwrites all my new episodes with repeats. It seems like the only thing I can do is monitor it until I have 10 episodes, then change the season pass to new only, then back to new & repeats when I've watched a few and want to build back up to 10. Am I missing something?
they tell me (time warner) that they only have capability for 2 tuners.. is it possible to rig something up to get all 4 tuners to record/work?
I've ordered a Roamio and 2 Minis that are set to arrive Tuesday. I plan to pickup the cablecard tomorrow. As mentioned in another post, I've been around Tivo since the original 14 hour units, but I've spent the last 12 or 13 years with DirecTV. So I've been out of the loop on the stand-alone models for a long time. Of course, I have a few questions.
1) Setup time? I'm not really concerned about the actual setup. I'm more interested in how long the guide population time is. Does it still take about 48 hours before the guide is populated to the point I can add all my season passes?
2) Moca/Ethernet? Currently I'm in a house and suspect I won't have any problems with a MOCA bridge setup. But in a few months we'll be moving to a large apartment building. Once I move, is there any chance MOCA will still work? I have no clue how the cable signal is split in the building but it obviously won't be a home run to my apartment.
3) Bluetooth keyboard? Do they work? I know I saw a thread about BT KB that required a dongle not working, but I have a BT KB that works with my phone, tablet and TV, no dongle required. Will this work?
4) IR/RF? Does the Roamio/Mini support both at the same time? My DirecTV Genie can handle both at once while the regular DirecTV receivers are exclusive, either IR or RF, but not both.
5) Simultaneous output? Does the Roamio output a full 1080 signal on both HDMI and the Component outputs at the same time?
I'm sure I'll have more questions, but that's all I can think of right now.
Has anyone used MLB TV on Tivo before and how did it function? Fast, slow, buffering etc. I assume it should work good with The Roamio because it is quicker then the older Tivo models. I had it last year on the Roku 3 and it was real fast no buffering and you could switch between games in about 3 seconds.
