SWIM only one antenna connection?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 07/17/2014 - 10:15
The installer installed a SWIM unit and connected only one cable to the THR22-100. I have looked at the manuals and there is no info about connecting a second cable to the second antenna connection.

Currently the unit will only record two programs at a time. I would like to be able to record more or watch another channel while two are recording.

any help would be appreciated.

Thank You.

No thread yet? Looks like Operation get rid of Devin is a full go. We got the obvious red herrings where BB gives us the possibility of Donny not going along with the plan or of Caleb becoming the target because of his jealousy toward Cody over Amber (and he's one lovestruck puppy!!).

I loved how Zack played along with him being Amanda Zuckerman's cousin!!

One question for those who watch the live feeds....are they having have-not competitions that we aren't seeing?

Gotta admit ... I like the twist at the end. It'll keep me around a little longer.

Also curious about the 3 in the pic and how that might tie into the girl.

American Ninja Warrior - Summer 2014

Any one else watching? I have to admit this is a guilty pleasure of mine. This is the perfect Tivo show as I can skip all the feel good background stories and watch a two hour episode in just one hour.

Just finished watching the Dallas finals and, wow, Kacy Catanzaro was amazing to complete the course. With her size, she had to make at least two "do or die" leaps on the tilting bars and poles. For her to finish the course was pretty amazing.

It's 2014. Can we buy Cablecards yet?

I'm renting 2 cablecards from Verizon at $4.99/each. I just want to buy the thing and be done with it.

Audio output question

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 07/17/2014 - 06:57
After six years of living in an area with no high-speed Internet and no cable, my wife and I are building in an area where we can once again join the 21st century. We'll have cable and Internet through Time-Warner and I'm thrilled to be able to join the Tivo community once again. Knowing we're only about four months away from our new home we took advantage of the awesome deal Tivo just offered and picked up a Roamio Plus with lifetime programming for just $599.

I have a question about the audio out ports on the back. I had heard the the analog audio out jacks are disabled if you are using the hdmi port. Does anyone know if this is true? We plan to have Sonos multi-room audio as well and I'd like to have the hdmi port feed my home theater receiver and the analog audio out ports feed into the line-in on one of my Sonos devices so that I can feed the satellite music stations into my Sonos system. Does anyone know if this is feasible? Does anyone out there have a similar setup?

So much has changed in the past six years that I feel like a newbie all over again. For that matter, I guess I am. I look forward to learning all the new features and technologies.

Thanks to anyone willing to reply.

Mohu Channels Rolls Massive Update, Resumes Shipping

After something of a rocky launch, Mohu Channels shipping will resume for Kickstarter backers. Tuning and heat-relates issues in the Android-powered, cord cutting widget were not hardware-related and have been resolved via software adjustments: The issue was caused by noise induced on the signal path from the tuner front end as it traveled to the processor.

Multi Service Discount

I have an old lifetime Series 2 DVR that I disconnected a few months ago. On my last bill one of my Tivos billing went up by $2. I know this was because the S2 had not called home for some time. It is not a big deal but if I hook it up again and have it call in will Tivo automatically notice it is still active and drop the price again? I suspect not but has someone else tried to use an old lifetime unit to get back the MSD?

It's on El Rey network, which launched in January. Gabriel Luna as an agent for the DEA who goes undercover as a pro soccer player. Alfred Molina is the team owner.

I was entertained. A lot of action, decent production values, doesn't take itself (or its occasionally ridiculous writing) too seriously. Looks like it could be a fun summer show. Dumb at times but not boring.

Harmony Ultimate/Hub Tivo App Integration

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 07/16/2014 - 20:58
I use a Harmony Ultimate to control my home theater, but usually use my iPhone or iPad to control both it and my Tivo, which requires two separate apps. Sure, the Harmony app can do everything, but doesn't have the two-way integration that makes the Tivo app so great.

It is funny to me when I accidentally tap the wrong thing in the Tivo app and get an error that I can't do that with the app (i.e. adjust volume). The Harmony Ultimate can now control anything with network remote capability, including lights and thermostats. It seems like there could now be better network integration between Harmony and Tivo so that two apps aren't required to control other devices via the Harmony's networked IR blasters.

Considering that the app is due for an update to match the new Premier/Roamio UI, does anyone think Tivo app developers might work to better integrate with universal and/or smart devices?

TimeWarner Los Angeles Problems

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 07/16/2014 - 19:49
I recently moved to Los Angeles bringing my Tivo HD box and upgrade by original series 3 to a Roamio, both of which require a tuning adapter for Time Warner cable in Los Angeles. The Time Warner people have been trying to get the tuning adapter to work for weeks without success. Last week there were three people in our apartment for over two hours and still no luck. The orange light on the tuning adapter never goes solid. From what I understand this is an issue with Time Warner and not the tivo per se, but nonetheless it's a problem for me since we are missing many channels. Has anyone else had this issue in Los Angeles or elsewhere? Any ideas how it can be resolved? I've been with Tivo since 2002, but if they can't figure out how to get the tuning adapter to work, then I may be forced to use their DVR.

Really hoping to stay with Tivo so any suggestions would be appreciated.


S3 HD unit always reverts to 480p output

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 07/16/2014 - 18:46
I have my TIVO HD set to Native (although the setting itself doesn't seem to matter). As soon as I turn off the 720p Samsung set to which it is connected, the video out on the TIVO resets to 480p.

I have no idea why. Any suggestions as to how to fix this?

This Saturday, July 19th at 9pm (ET) on CMT there is a new episode of "Dog and Beth: On the Hunt" called "Love Conquers All", but the TMS guide is currently incorrectly showing that it is a repeat of last weeks episode ("Popcorn Bounty"). I don't have confidence that they will update this before the airing since every other program listing provider seems to have had it correct since last week.

TiVo Plots A Future Beyond CableCARD & Tuning Adapters

Zatz Not Funny! - Wed, 07/16/2014 - 14:55
As TiVo turns the software corner, not only have they banished the poorly performing and ill-supported Adobe framework in favor of Haxe, but they’re leading the charge (as proposed by RCN and given the FCC’s apparent indifference) to replace unwieldy, antiquated cable hardware with a more sensible digital approach… with a little help from their cable allies.

On the field, in the dugout, and even during the commercial breaks, it was all about Derek Jeter at the Midsummer Classic. From Jeter’s play on the field to his interview late in the game, viewers were inclined to watch and watch again. Preceding Jeter’s first at-bat, Nike aired its much anticipated Re2pect spot featuring a wide array of athletes, celebrities, and even Red Sox fans tipping their hats in tribute to the Yankees captain.

20.4.2 and SD program format

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 07/16/2014 - 13:39
After this new update, I have noticed that the SD screen format won't stay (Zoom, Panel, Stretch). I leave it set to panel all the time because I want to see shows as the director intended. Twice, so far, the TiVo just decides to stretch them out even though the setting is still on "panel". I have to cycle through all three settings just to go back to panel so it will display correctly.

This is most frustrating in the netflix app since you can't cycle the settings inside netflix shows. I have to completely exit the netflix app, find a channel showing traditional 3x4 SD content, cycle through all the format settings, then I can go back to Netflix and restart the show.

Is there anything I can do to get TiVo to hold the panel setting?

Hi all. New to the forum. Just thought I'd say hello.


Roamio Plus unusable after 2 months

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 07/16/2014 - 12:53
Hello all,
I’m a Tivo newbie. There, I’ve said it. I purchased a Tivo Roamio Plus on eBay in May of 2014.
For the first week the Tivo worked great. I enjoyed the new menus, exploring the options that came with the box (much better than my local cable company DVR offerings). After a week everything started to go wonky.

Issue 1: The first thing that started happening was the sound going out. Watching Live TV or one that I’d recorded, the sound would go out, come back on, go out, come back on, in no discernable pattern. Sometimes setting the Tivo on Standby and turning off the tv, then back on would resolve it. Sometimes it required that I unplug the HDMI cable. Sometimes it required that I unplug the power cord.
The sound going out wouldn’t happen every day. Or even on a regular basis. At least not at first. Now it happens every time I have the TV on.

Issue 2: Then, the picture started going out. Simply going black. Then coming back on. Then going black. I could be in the Tivo menu, or on Live TV, or watching a recorded show. To fix this always required unplugging the power cord and plugging it back in.

Issue 3: On Saturday July 12 the weirdest thing started happening. The picture , when on Live TV, remained in the upper right hand corner of the screen. As if it thought I was still looking at the Tivo menu. (this is a TV that does not have picture-in-picture, by the way). I found the following online, but the suggested workaround didn’t do it for me:
(can't actually post the link, but it's under forums dot tivo dot com)
forums dot tivo dot com/pe/action/forums/displaypost?postID=11171175#e11171175
Repeated reboots (unplugging power and HDMI cable, then the Coax cable as well) have not resolved this issue at all.
As of today, July 16 2014, the Tivo is not usable. The picture remains in the upper corner of the screen. The sound goes in and out. The picture goes black. At the moment all cords are unplugged from the box- I left it that way before leaving for work this morning.
I have been wondering if what I need is a new hard drive, and intend to do some testing (if, in fact, there are tools there to test the hard drive on a Roamio. Haven’t gotten that far yet)

However, I figured I’d also appeal to the collective wisdom of those who have had Tivos much longer than I. Has anyone seen any of these behaviors before?
I will note that I know none of these issues have to do with the TV itself. Watching anything else on the TV (Blu Ray, or anything over Chromecast for example) works just dandy. Sound and picture quality are consistently good.
