Moca and Cable Amplifier

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 10/13/2014 - 10:28
I currently have a Tivo HD and am getting ready to move up to the Tivo Roamio along with the Tivo Mini. I am looking into the networking options that I have. I know the Roamio has Moca built in and that's what is recommended; however, I have a cable amplifier that is used right before going into the Tivo. This was installed by the cable company and necessary as there are weak signal issues. So I cannot remove it. I have read that you cannot use Moca with a cable amplifier. Is this true????

If I cannot use Moca, would getting a very good powerline ethernet adapter a good and realistic option?

[ANN] The TivoHMO and TivoHME ruby libraries

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 10/13/2014 - 09:35
Hi all,

I officially had too much time on my hands, and being a ruby fan decided to reimplement hmo/hme in ruby:


I'm a fan of plex for managing my library, and pytivo/hmeforpython for making my library available to my tivos, but was finding it too difficult to use plex as the metadata source for pytivo/hme. Thus I wrote these with a little more separation between components to make it easier to plug/play the bits extenders may care about. The original goal when I started was to have a single media library through plex, and have it exposed to the tivo with hmo, maybe hme, and possibly an opera app. Given the recent work by ntlord ( https://github.com/ntlord/PlexTivo ), I'm not sure if I'll do much with the hme implementation so it remains lacking a test suite, but thought I'd share in case others were interested.

The tivohmo project is mostly complete and tested, but the transcoder is pretty basic. If anyone is more of an expert in all the ffmpeg magic involved in getting video to a form the tivo is looking for, and is looking to contribute, I'd be happy to accept :) A way to serve streams to tivo mini's would also be very cool, but have no idea where to start.

This project wouldn't be possible without all the other groundbreaking work done in the other tivo projects (pyTivo, hmeforpython, videomanager, etc), so would like to thank everyone thats contributed to those projects for figuring out all the hard stuff to make my life easier :)

Premier Recording Some Reruns when I set NEW ONLY

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 10/12/2014 - 23:39
Some Season Pass's set as NEW Only are recording occasional Reruns. Yes, I did check the SP settings and even reset them again for NEW only. Never saw this before, I did get the last 2 updates (summer and Fall). It's a little annoying but not a deal breaker, just lose faith in Tivo's smarts...

Naked and Afraid is one that did this, luckily I tired of the show anyway...
and some Saturday Night Live rerun shows lately...
any ideas? thanks.

PIP with Slide Remote somehow lost

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 10/12/2014 - 23:24
Hi everyone:

I currently have a Roamio Pro, and a TIVO slide remote (the one with the slide out keyboard, but no PIP button). I have had the slide remote for about 9 months.

Since I had the Roamio (about a year), I have had PIP (Picture in Picture) when I was in Tivo Central. It worked great. But somehow, (maybe me hitting the wrong button) my PIP is GONE! I don't know what I did to make it go away, but I want it back.

I have searched high and low here and at TIVO to find out how to turn it back on, but have come up empty.

Somebody out there in TIVOland knows this answer... Please HELP!!

Obligitory, "I can't believe there's not a thread for this..."

I was really worried about this season without Brody. After last week's two episodes I became optimistic. Now I'm actually excited. For whatever reason the idea that there was a Pakistani team on the ground is very intriguing to me. I can't wait for them to get Quinn and Saul back on the job.

Wishlist category showing non-received channels

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 10/12/2014 - 20:58
I have a wish list for "crime drama" films. Have had it forever.

Since the latest software update, now that lists upcoming programs from every channel---including many channels I don't receive. (Spanish, French, you name it.)

This didn't happen before. TiVo support had me re-create the wish list. No dice. I re-ran Guided Setup. Same thing.

I don't want twenty screens of films, most of which are not receivable.

Software version 20.4.4b-01-2-746

Anyone seeing a similar result?

Question about FCC rules, cable card, & cable packages

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 10/12/2014 - 19:59
I'm a little confused about this section of the FCC rules

"Your right to pay only for the equipment you have is protected by FCC Rule 76.1205(b)(5). Your cable operator must give you a discount on any packages that include the price of a set-top box if you use your own CableCARD-enabled device instead of leasing the operator's set-top box;"

I recently turned in my cable company's whole home DVR equipment (which includes the cable modem) and picked up a standard cable modem, cable card & tuning adapter. The CSR at the cable office told me that the only way I could keep the VIP (video, Internet & phone) pricing package I had, was to have the included cable box. I told her that was against the fcc rules to require me to have a cable box. She then told me I'd lose channels, I told her that wasn't true, I had a TiVo before my house fire and I had all the channels without a box.

Eventually a supervisor came out, also saying I couldn't have the package without a box, but I could buy the same items aka carte. Finally at the end of my rope, and just wanting to get out of the office with a cable card, I told them to do whatever they needed to do, but I didn't want a cable box or to lose channels.

So, now I get my first bill after this interaction and they did exactly what they said they'd do, they're charging me full price for all of the different services. (Before taxes $180.98, plus $3.35 for the cable card)

Below is the package of the exact same service for $153.49 (note it includes converter)


So, my TiVo community FCC experts, my question is.... Shouldn't I be able to force them under FCC rules to give me the VIP package & refuse the cable box; and pay the exact same or less a discount for not taking the box?

Protect shows from being deleted?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 10/12/2014 - 19:09
Is there anyway to protect shows from being deleted by setting a password or having TiVo always ask if you're sure you want to delete (I know it already does that if you try to delete a group)? My dad keeps hitting the clear button by accident and/or thinking it has the same function as the back button while in My Shows. So he keeps deleting/almost deleting shows; usually he realizes it right away and we can recover it, but its getting a little frustrating. Any ideas? Especially with the Roamio remote being so sensitive I think this would be helpful regardless. Thanks!

Have we seen Agent 33 before or was the brain washing her introduction to this series?

Stuttering during streaming Roamio Pro to Ramio Basic

Need networking advice for Roamio Plus and Premiere XL

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 10/12/2014 - 14:10
I currently have a Premiere XL (2-tuner) purchased via a deal that included a TiVo wireless-N adapter. I'm seriously thinking of taking an offer to get a new Roamio Plus with lifetime and relocating the Premiere. So I could use some informed advice on how best to set things up to be able to stream between these two boxes once I have both. Some particulars:

The Premiere "thinks" it's on Ethernet per its settings. But there's no practical way to get Ethernet wire to the living room location or into the bedroom where the Premiere will be placed once a Roamio Plus arrives. I've seen folks here saying wifi isn't "recommended" for streaming, but TiVo's site says you cannot stream if either device uses wifi. In any event, switching my cable modem isn't an option and I'm sticking with my Apple Airport Time Capsule as my router.

I'm not 100% clear on how the cable comes into our home, but I think it's got 3 separate points of entry (possibly 4). The downstairs TV is the current Premiere XL location and will be the home of the Roamio Plus once it arrives; a cable enters 6-8 feet from there. A second cable enters on the opposite side of the house into our master bedroom, where the Premiere will be placed once the Roamio arrives. A third cable enters higher up on the same side of the house as the master bedroom, and this one is run to a wall plate that connects to the cable modem (with telephone) in a home office. I'm unsure if there's a separate 4th entry point or whether one of these splits and runs through attic space where it's then dropped down into an upstairs bedroom and currently connects to a cable STB until our daughter moves out.

I know that the Roamio Plus/Pro models support MoCA without needing adapters, and that the Premiere XL would supposedly need an adapter. I think what I've read thus far suggests I'd need yet another adapter tied to my cable modem. Of course, that's only if MoCA is my best overall solution.

So...is MoCA my best bet? Or should I consider wireless to Ethernet bridges (which essentially how the TiVo branded wireless-N adapter appears to work)? Something else?

I'm moderately network literate, but any advice shouldn't assume TOO much literacy on my part given that I'm not positive about the separate points of entry for cable. (And I do have a Motorola tuning adapter.) But I'd like to avoid having to pay Charter for anything if I can avoid it...as you can imagine. Any advice or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Some program listing have Generic Discriptions

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 10/12/2014 - 12:19
For the past couple of months I have been getting some very Generic Descriptions on some listings.

Meaning I will look up to see if a Basketball game will be televised or not.
I find a listing that is at the correct time of the game but all it says is "No information available. (HD) No Rating, Basketball, Sports Event, First aired....."

I also have a Season Pass for 'Wife Swap'.
I had about 7 recordings listed in my 'Now Showing' and all of them said "No information available".

Wondering if this is a setting on my system or is it Comcast not giving Tivo the info.

I can go to my Comcast Box (bypassing the Tivo) and this Descriptions are fine.

What should I buy?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 10/12/2014 - 10:18
Hi All, It's been a while since I've posted here and now have a few questions since I think it's about time I upgrade and I'm not sure what to buy. I keep getting offers in email and all they do is confuse me :)

Current setup:
  • 1 2 tuner premier with cable card - 50 hours?
  • 1 2 tuner Series 3 with cable card - 150 hours?
These are connected to the same TV and we use ethernet. We are on month to month and our cost is about $28 a month. I believe one unit is grandfathered. We've been subscribers since 2000 :eek:
  • 1 TV in the kitchen with a cable box and not on any Tivo. I do not use it very much.

Should I buy a 4 tuner Romio?

Can I get rid of the cable box in the kitchen and get a mini or a stream? (which one)? There currently is a co-axle plug there, and it's not a big deal to put in an ethernet cable.

The way I see it, I will only need 1 cable card and I can return 1 card and the box. Will we save anything on the service?

Thank you in advance for your help!
