New Roamio Wifi/Netflix issue

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 01/11/2015 - 22:35
I just received my new Roamio (standard model for use with my HD antenna). I am replacing my old HD model which recently started randomly rebooting. I also wanted the Roamio to get access to streaming Amazon Prime.

I am hooking up to my home network via wireless, which apparently is a real problem for the Roamio. After reading several suggestions online, I was able to get it to initially set up by using a wired connection from another room. Now it is in place and working via wifi, except when I try to stream Netflix it begins the program but then after 1-2 minutes, it stops and buffers up to 25%, where it hangs and then tells me there are network problems. The wifi connection is strong (90%-100% reported) and the Netflix server check comes through just fine. As soon as I switch back to a wired connection (in the other room) it works perfectly. Another symptom of my problem is that my entire wifi network actually goes offline if I leave Netflix attempting to load. Amazon Prime does the same thing. The old HD with the USB wifi adapter had no problems connecting and streaming Netflix.

I am using a DLINK DIR-655 router and I have updated the settings to what I have found via online research: Uncheck "multicast streams" and uncheck "enable DNS relays". Still having the problem.

Can anyone point me in the right direction here? I am concerned if I call TiVo support I'll be told to start at the beginning with "restart your modem and router", etc.


U-Verse on a Tivo?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 01/11/2015 - 21:17
So I'm fed up with ATT's high price, long term contract, and bad customer service. The only way to talk to a human is by threatening to cancel.

So I have already decided to switch back to the -slightly- lesser evil, TWC. At least their people answer the phone.

Best part is I can come back to Tivo. I bought a Roamio Pro and mini. TWC won't be hooked up until next week, but I wanted get the Tivo set up first.

in the setup process the Tivo gave me 2 choices for providers:
TWC and U-Verse.

Why would U-Verse show up if it's not in any way compatible with a Roamio?


CNBC Closing Bell 1/9/2015

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 01/11/2015 - 20:49
Does anyone have a recording of Friday's Closing Bell from CNBC? I'm looking for the whole show, not just the bell ringing video. The company my wife works for rang the closing bell and we were on the trading floor for it. For a few minutes before the bell ringing you could see us wandering around in the background. I recorded it at home but it was pretty pixelated in a bunch of places.

If anyone could help me out, I'd appreciate it.

Why are "Will Record" counts wrong?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 01/11/2015 - 19:00
In the Season Passes menu season passes are lit up white to indicate something will be recorded, and it will say something like "1 Will Record" for that SP. If I go to Upcoming in that SP I frequently see that fewer or even no episodes are actually scheduled to record. Says 1 actual 0, says 3 actual 2, etc. It's not always off by one though. In any case, the count is simply wrong. What's up with that?

2015 Golden Globes Awards

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 01/11/2015 - 18:48

I'll start off with a few in the movies, drama categories. Will skip musical/comedies because I haven't seen any of the films involved except for one

Best Movie, Drama (I've actually seen all of these films. Selma just yesterday)

-- Boyhood

Best Actress in Movie, Drama

-- Felicity Jones in Theory of Everything (only performance I saw in this category)

Best Actor in Movie, Drama

-- Eddie Redmayne in Theory of Everything (I have seen all performances except Jake Gyllenhaal in 'Nightcrawler'. I could see David Oyelowo or Steve Carrell wining too.)

I guess 'American Sniper' was released too late for consideration this year?

UPS issue with Tivo Slide Remote

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 01/11/2015 - 12:58
Anyone else having an issue with their order?

When I called Tivo they said there was a huge shipment that went out that got lost by UPS.

I got a call by UPS today, but wasn't able to pick up. They left a message but didn't leave a number I could call back on a weekend.

Help! Need a clean TCD746320 image.

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 01/11/2015 - 11:36
I'd like to try a clean image on my Premiere because I feel there is corruption on my HD. It continues to have issues.

I've done a pretty indepth HD test, and nothing is wrong with it and I continue to have issues.

Figured I'd try a clean image.

Thanks for your help!

Empire on Fox - Season One

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 01/11/2015 - 11:26
Don't know if there will be a second but the pilot had history-making strong ratings. Glad I DVR'd it because Fox made a lot off of ads.

Terrence Howard plays villains well. (I always feel that I need a shower after watching him on screen.) I wanted to choke him during that "trash-can the gay kid scene".

Taraji P. Henson was perfectly ghetto-fabulous and a force with whom to reckon. Loved her reactions to her sons' greetings -- especially the younger two. She might carry this show -- she ruled the pilot. So happy to see her back in a TV series.

The gambling-addict friend couldn't survive the season but I hoped he would be another Cookie ally.

I'm in for at least another few episodes.

Does a wired connection work better?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 01/11/2015 - 11:17
My husband would rather get ethernet extenders to hard wire the minis in to the internet connection.

Any by wired, I mean through our power lines on an extender box, NOT hard wired throughout the home.

I thought I had read that a MoCA bridge connection works better???

Neither of us is that technology savvy, so explain it to me simply please.

OTA program guide up date?

Can anyone tell me how to Update the program guide.? I cut Direct TV cord (Nice? YES, YES). Went with the Roamio OTA. I get a lot of channels. The Tivo program guide shows most of them but not all, like, Grit TV & NHK TV Channels. How do I Update the program guide for these channels? thank you.

Why does TiVo have to record the show on the dvr when streaming to phone or tablet? Just curious and sometimes the show is not deleted from the dvr when you select this option.

10 Days With Vizio M Series

Zatz Not Funny! - Sun, 01/11/2015 - 08:31
Cue the sad panda. I had high hopes for a new 65″ Vizio M Series. But, after 10 days, Best Buy has reclaimed it. The M Series was notable for providing a solid picture at a reasonable price. And, when the 65″ dropped to $1000 during promotional holiday pricing, we pulled the trigger. Beyond “bang for buck” […]

So will we ever be able to subscribe and get the sling TV programing using a TiVo. The stations they offer would put me on the verge of cutting the cable completely.....

Friends on Netflix (entire show run - spoilers)

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 01/10/2015 - 20:44
Netflix has all seasons of Friends now. My daughter binged watched the first 6 seasons (through Friday - so not quiet a season a day ;) ).

While I did not personally watch every episode during her binge watching, I saw several - and I remembered just how great that show was.

I think my favorite so far has been “The One With the Embryos” (Season 4, episode 12) - in which Ross is host to a quiz between Rachel/Monica and Joey/Chandler over aspects of their lives.

Anyone else rewatching? Any favorite episodes or moments?

Black Mirror on Netflix - Anyone Watching?

It's been described as the digital Twilight Zone, and the description has been apt so far. I've seen the first two episodes so far and it's mesmerizing .... in a very disturbing way.
