Must Reboot Mini to get Pandora

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 09/14/2014 - 15:10
Every time I launch Pandora on my mini after watching video I have to reboot the mini in order to get sound. The Pandora app launches OK, the song screen comes up and the song progress line shows that the song is playing but there is no sound. Works fine after rebooting the mini.
Anyone know what can be done about this problem?

Launch Fail: Best Buy hasn't heard of the TiVo Roamio OTA

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 09/14/2014 - 14:45
Knowing Best Buy's tendency toward bad service and terrible inventory control I decided to call my local store to see if they had it. I waited on the phone for 15 minutes, finally got someone who had no idea what I was talking about. She said without the number she couldn't look it up on the website. Clearly she had better things to do, when I said I was looking at the TiVo website where it clearly states it is launching at Best Buy today, she sighed heavily and threw me back on hold.

If I had known that all they were going to do was look it up on their consumer facing website I would have saved the call. She had never heard anything about the Best Buy exclusive and clearly had no idea what the OTA was about.

I called TiVo. He said they should have it in the stores listed on the website, but couldn't answer why Best Buy had no idea. The store I called was listed.

Thinking it was a local issue I called the Best Buy 800 number. Got someone on the line. Not only did she not know about OTA, but she didn't know how to spell TiVo. I'm not sure she knew what a TiVo was. She tried calling the store, I waited for nearly 10 minutes. She comes back on and says the store hung up on her. We'll at least they are consistently bad.

TiVo - very bad idea to launch with Best Buy. Can you make it available on amazon.com so we can actually buy it? You have someone here ready to buy, who isn't complaining about the $15 a month. Simple.TV is starting to look good.

MFSLive Linux Boot CD constantly Reboots

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 09/14/2014 - 13:29
I have booted to my MFSLive Linux Boot CD for Tivo Users. It gives me four options. After selecting Option 1 (MFSLive for Series 1, 2, and 3), it scrolls some data, then briefly lists my drive, and then reboots back to the MFS Live main menu. It is in a constant reboot cycle.

Can anyone help?

Boardwalk Empire 2014

Am I correct that the series seems to have jumped ahead 7 years? In the final episode last season, when Hoover was in the interrogation room with Narcisse he said it was 26 years since Narcisse entered the US in 1898. That would obviously make it 1924. Then, at the beginning of this season it shows that they are in Cuba in 1931. So do we agree there is a 7 year jump or am I mistaken? Thanks.

Mini won't work; both is and isn't connected to internet?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 09/14/2014 - 12:25
I have a TiVo Mini connected to a TiVo Premier via MoCa; the Premier is connected via Ethernet to my router and cable modem. This has all been working fine until the Mini abruptly stopped working yesterday. The Premier is still working fine.

The TiVo Mini displays on its home screen an error: “No Internet Connection (C130)” and it can't access any content on the Premier or live TV or any internet content. HOWEVER, going to Settings -> Network -> Test Internet Connection on the Mini results in the connection testing out to work properly. “Connect to TiVo Service Now” also results in a successful connection. Network status on both boxes shows that the MoCa network seems to be up and sending and receiving signals (though the Mini cannot identify the host system). Yet the error on the main screen doesn't change.

I have reset both TiVo boxes, my modem, and my router; all to no change. I have also turned MoCa off and back on. I’m very puzzled as to what could be going on, because the Mini seems to be able to connect to the internet properly and it must be going through the Premier to do so, but its software also seems to think it isn’t connected to the internet or the Premier.

I'm very disturbed and puzzled by this. Can anyone offer any insight?

Some Netflix Episodes Missing Dialogue

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 09/14/2014 - 12:10
I have been watching Continuum on Netflix on my Roamio, and every couple episodes there is music and sound effects, but the dialogue is missing.

The episodes work fine on Netflix on my chromecast.

Any ideas?

Will an already activated and working roamio, work if restarted without internet

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 09/14/2014 - 11:57
I am having issues for some reason adding some channels to my cable package. I just upgraded services 2 weeks ago no problem but now an additional upgrade is refusing to work. ( I have on demand and everything else working no problem this is strange)

The guy said it could be the splitters etc, which i do have and have never had problems getting signals. So since my splitters are in wall, if I unplugged the roamio and hook it up in another room to try and have a signal sent to the box with no splitters in the way will the tivo boot up and work with no internet?

Right now its hard wired i have the moca all setup running no problems, I dont want to plug the box in and have it ask me to change settings.


Thanks

Just checked all the Best Buy stores in my area, nobody had any idea what I was talking about. Contacted tivo via chat and was told only best buy had info on them and tivo didn't have that information. Seems i'm not part of the test market.

Mini use of Roamio tuner

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 09/14/2014 - 08:25
From what I can tell, the Mini is supposed to release the Roamio tuner after 90 minutes of "inactivity." Can someone tell me what "inactivity" means? Does the mini actually sense via HDMI that the TV is shut off and release the tuner 90 minutes later? If that is the case, how about if you are playing back a recorded show on the mini and shut the TV off... does it sense that at some point and pause the playback?

I searched but did not find this answered in another thread. If I missed it, please point me in the right direction. Thanks!

Remove legacy devices from TiVo.app

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 09/14/2014 - 00:29
I have 3 old TiVo devices I no longer own that are still listed within my TiVo.app as available devices to control/watch. Obviously, it doesn't work when I switch to any of them. I'd like to remove them completely from the list so that only the TiVo devices I currently own are listed. Is this possible?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated... Thanks!

This channel is not authorized (V58)

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 09/13/2014 - 23:22
I just replaced my 2 Premier units with a Roamio and a Mini which so far has worked great, but I'm having a strange issue on the Tivo Mini.. A lot of the channels are showing up with the "Channel Not Authorized (V58)" error on my Mini.. but those channels show up fine on the Roamio that it connects to. The Roamio has a tuning adapter and an M card.. Why would this happen?

Romio remote Apple TV

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 09/13/2014 - 18:05
I know that the older remote with the 1 2 switch can be programmed to control Apple TV on the 2 position.

But I have a romio now and that remote doesn't have the 1 2 switch.

Can the romio remote also control the Apple TV ?

Can it switch without the 1 2 switch ?

Non-techninal person needs help!!

Hi All. I am getting a Roamio Pro and Mini and so confused on the cabling required and MoCa. This is what I will have below and didn't know if someone had a schematic or could list the all the pieces I need (POE filter, adapter, etc...). This will basically be a new install for WOW cable (using them for internet and cable service).

-WOW cable has a single coax that currently comes into the basement and is just hanging.
-I have a coax hanging in the basement that will go to the Mini in the bedroom (no CAT5 available).
-I then have coax and ethernet cables dangling from where the 2 coax cables above are dangling in the basement to the family room where I will have the Roamio Pro, cable modem and router.

I am not that technical so just figuring out when I need. Thanks for your assistance.

I love TiVo.... but....

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 09/13/2014 - 14:55
I am a long time TiVo owner - since Series 1 in fact! I've been a huge advocate for TiVO over the years, encourage folks to switch from cable DVRs. That being said, the frustration each time I get a new HD box has gotten me to the point that I don't think I could recommend friends to switch to TiVO any more.

For my past two boxes (premiere and Romio) I had a full week of drama trying to get all my channels to work. The thing is, I am not really sure there is anyone to blame. TiVO provides great instructions, a great OS with good onscreen directions on what to do. My cable company (Orlando Brighthouse) is actually very helpful and tries everything that they know how to do. The techs that come to my house try everything that they know - but readily admit they only handle 1 or 2 a year. At the end - to get all the channels to work as an end user, I have to find an obscure internet forum (DSL forums) and then post info that the average user wouldn't know how to find.

Don't get me wrong, I am VERY happy that that resource exists...but it shouldn't be that difficult. I couldn't in good conscious, tell a friend or neighbor to go through that - no matter how much I love TiVO. I'm not sure what the answer is for TiVo - I want them to be successful. Heck, I even own stock...but I don't know in today's age of iOS products that "just work" if they can survive having to interact with "big cable".

Just venting and airing my thoughts after a week of frustration. :)

Programming category tags - who controls this?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 09/13/2014 - 12:30
I've noticed that a particular show shows up in "my shows" when it should be under Kids (Sheriff Callie's Wild West- on Disney). Is this a TiVo, content or mso issue? Not a big deal but would like to report it to whomever controls. It does not have a 'kids' tagging/category on western.

Mini questions - Netflix and dongle

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 09/13/2014 - 10:58
1) confused how to view Netflix on the Mini. Have looked under all areas and can't find it. Running 20.4.2

2) had to buy a replacement Tivo slide pro remote. It uses a different dongle than is currently connected to my Mini. What are the differences between the dongles.

Thanks
