Hulu no longer updating their app for any TiVo.

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 02/17/2015 - 17:56
I've been having terrible issues with Hulu streaming, pretty much every time I watch a show I'll end up having to quit the Hulu app all the way out to TiVo Central before restarting the stream. Netflix and Amazon both play flawless 1080p on the same device so it is clearly an issue with the Hulu app.

Opened a ticket with Hulu support and after trying the usual "blame the customer" game, they eventually had this to say:
Quote: Unfortunately, this device is operating on an older platform, and is no longer receiving updates or bug fixes at this time. Do you currently have any other streaming devices or gaming systems that you can use to watch Hulu Plus on your TV? So has anyone else heard anything about this? I can't really conceive of the Roamio as being an "older platform" since it is the current offering from TiVo.

If nothing else, the folks at TiVo might want to know this is what Hulu is telling their customers.

Adding a web video download...

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 02/17/2015 - 17:47
I would love to be able auto download the new Tekthing video podcast but have no idea how to add it to my roamio. The TWIT video podcasts were easy. I searched for them under Find TV, Movies,& Video and simply added them. I searched for Tekthing and found nothing. I heard I can add the RSS feed of the show somehow...does anyone know how? Thanks.

lag on Roamio

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 02/17/2015 - 16:06
I have noticed quite a bit of Lag lately on my Roamio Basic (HD upgraded to 3TB):

- On SNL's 40th episode (4 hour recording), when skipping certain commercials, it would just hang and not forward.

- Sometimes (lately) i hear sound but not video when playback of certain TV shows that were recorded. I actually have to go back and re-Play.

- Sometimes during playbacks of certain recorded shows it pauses while playing.

I did a reboot of the Tivo manually just in case it runs chkdsk / re-indexing type of utilities on reboot internally.


question about Moca with an OTA setup

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 02/17/2015 - 13:41
I started a previous thread here about getting Moca setup in an OTA setup. That thread is located here: http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb...ht=mulliganman

My question is I am wanting to explore also sending an Ethernet signal to a couple devices (Fire TV's) on the same Moca line. I am attaching a diagram of my setup with additions I am wondering are needed or will work to do that (simply adding in Moca splitters where I am wanting to get an Ethernet signal to the Fire TV's too). Will this work well? Did I leave it anything I may need to do this? My internet is 50 Mbps if that matters. Please let me know.

Roamio Not Connecting to Other Tivos

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 02/17/2015 - 12:58
I just replaced an HD Tivo with a Roamio. (I have several tivos.) The new Roamio is working but there are a couple of problems.
  • I have a Tivo Mini that was paired with a Premiere and I want to change it to be paired with this Roamio, but when I try, the Roamio has a red circle with a line through it next to it so I can't pair it.
  • I can't view the shows on two of my other Tivos from the Roamio. It says there is a "network problem" but this tivo is connected to the same ethernet cable as my old tivo that would connect just fine, and the other tivos can see the shows on the other boxes, including the new Roamio. (I have gone into Device Preferences on the tivo site to ensure that the "Video Sharing" box is checked.) I've also done some forced connections to make sure everything is updated.

One thing, though, on the Tivo site for My Account, it does say "We're still processing your activation." Could that be what is causing my connection problems?

I know I could call Tivo support, but I'm never home in front of the Tivo when they're open, so I was hoping to get some help here.

Thank you,

Limit Discovery Bar to Valid Channels

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 02/17/2015 - 09:40
I've noticed shows in my Discovery Bar from channels I don't receive and aren't selected in my channel list. I've also noticed things that I can't believe get recommended, such as the guide listings show on the channel listings channel (also not in my channel list) or things I've given thumbs down to.

None of this should happen in my opinion, certainly I can't discover content on inaccessible channels.

Better Call Saul - S01E03 02/16/15 "Nacho"

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 02/17/2015 - 08:40
What? No thread yet?

Awesome episode. Now we're seeing the beginnings of Jimmy (Saul) and Mike's relationship. Great background on Chuck and Jimmy at the beginning as well.

Best of the three so far IMO.


mini and lifetime service

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 02/17/2015 - 00:50
Mini $150 should include lifetime service. I know right now it's free lifetime service till may but tivo mini should always include free lifetime. WHY? cause it can't work without main TVIO which we paid $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ for. at least tivo guys is finally getting it. I'll buy mini v2 when someone sells it for $120 before may.

My FAV thing about TIVO

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 02/17/2015 - 00:18
My fav feat about TIVO that makes it worth it.

being able to FAV the channels you want and ONLY showing those channels!!! Click guide and it shows 30channels I fav. I can press channel up and down and it will only go through those channels!!!! I couldn't do that with comcast DVR, with comcast DVR I had to click "fav" channel list EVERY SINGLE TIME and once you press up or down it would show rest of the channel. Same when you click the guide button. just ruined the whole TV experience. I paid a lot for tivo + lifetime but that one feat. makes it all worth it for me. thanks

ANNOYING TIVO central!!!

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 02/17/2015 - 00:13
1. from TIVO central you cannot go back to live TV by pressing BACK button. YOU HAVE TO CLICK LIVE TV TO switch to live TV. Why can't you freaking go back WITH BACK BUTTON?>!?!??!?!

2.when watching ur recorded show from TIVO central. U browse through TIVO central menu. You cannot go back full screen to ur TV by pressing Play or pause and play. You have to manually click on the TV show u were watching from TIVO central.

iOS Tivo app not connecting fully to Tivo Roamio ...

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 02/16/2015 - 16:46
I am able to see the stuff on the Tivo from my iPhone 5 and iPad Mini app but I can't use either as a remote, they both give the same error message that I have to be on my home network ... which I am! I only have one wireless router and it services all my stuff so I am not sure why it keeps saying I am not on my home network. What can I do to fix this?

Folder date keeps changing

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 02/16/2015 - 13:52
Hi -

I have Better Call Saul One Pass, but the odd thing is that the folder's date for last updated keeps changing daily and moving to the top of folders while no show is being recorded in that folder.

Bug ? Feature ? :)


Tivo Says Only Way I can use Mini/MoCA is to Upgrade Splitter Beyond 5-1000 Range?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 02/16/2015 - 13:25
I have a new Roamio Plus and Tivo support says I need to get a new spplitter that operates above 5-1000 Mhz range to connect the mini. I live in a modern apt building with a 3 way 5-1000 mhz splitter.

Sux that Tivo doesn't make products that are compatible with standard consumer household environments. Who would come up w a product that requires customers to go buy a new, extra range splitter and is incompatible with the core market?

Verizon FIOS TV with TWC internet - Need "Quantum Gateway" router ?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 02/16/2015 - 12:42
I am getting FIOS TV for my two Roamio's (plus cablecards).

I'm keeping the Time Warner Cable internet as my internet provider.

I have the TWC Motorola cable modem plus the top of the line Ausus router.

I'm arguing with Verizon whether I really need the Quantum Gateway, which is normally $9.99 a month.

Cut the Cord/Ditched the Dish

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 02/16/2015 - 12:33
With Sling TV coming to Xbox One, I was finally able to get everyone onboard to cut the cord.

Which brought me to buy my first ever TiVo.

I have always heard about how good they are, and after only a couple of hours I went back and returned a Roamio OTA, bought a Roamio Basic and added Lifetime service.

The killer features are really that streaming is integrated into the single remote for easier family adoption and it also happens to work with really well with Xbox One - so, whatever is not on the TiVo, IS on the Xbox. HBO Go and Sling TV really round out the entertainment and even if those add up to $35/month, I still save $130 a month over the Dish bill.

It would be nice if there was a forum here just for people using TiVos as OTA DVRs - instead of looking through a lot of forums with cable centric issues.

Based on the latest TiVo financial reports, it seems like they are definitely on the upswing and I think Sling TV and HBO's moves will just add to that.
