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.

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 01/11/2015 - 09:34
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.

Streaming to devices

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” […]

Is it possible to program the Roamio remote to turn on my Xbox One and Bose Lifestyle 35 and control the volume on the Lifestyle 35?

sling TV and tivo

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.

I loved this episode.
Patricia Richardson and Jonathan Taylor Thomas from Home improvement. Also Chuck channeling "Wilson" over the fence.
Even had the Home Improvement scene swipes.

Glee, new season..spoilers

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 01/10/2015 - 14:23
Ok Watched the 1st new one and was so disappointed. I can't believe what they have turned Sue into. She's not even funny any more. They need every viewer they need and the Tea party bit probably turned some viewers against them. I will still record it like I have done the past two years but will fast forward thru the dialog parts and just watch the singing.

Strange behavior of TCF....

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 01/10/2015 - 10:49
Folks, I'm seeing some very strange browser behavior on Tivocommunity.com

This is on a Macbook Pro 13" Retina, 8GB machine running OSX 10.9.5, using Safari. I've not started testing with other combinations and then running down details.

This forum (meaning TCF in general) - and only this forum - is demonstrating some worrisome behavior. Screens are now very sluggish. I'm getting the spinning color wheel, hovering over a "link" or "button" often doesn't turn the cursor into a "hand", sometimes typing into a window is REAL sluggish. I've rebooted, shut down and restarted, closed browser, etc. It still happens all too frequently. If TCF is demonstrating these issues I can simultaneously open another browser session with any other site and it behaves perfectly - it's just TCF thus far. Were I on a WinPC, I'd immediately suspect malware/virus activity. I'll keep looking but wanted to at least post a quick note....

Best Way to Transfer a Mini from My Account to Another Account

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 01/10/2015 - 10:35
Got 4 Minis for $115 at Best Buy (price matched to Sam's) and activated all 4 prior to 1.6.15 to make sure they received the free lifetime.

Installed 3 of them and they are working great. Have just about decided not to install the 4th (on the bathroom TV) and want to see if I can get it to work on my in-law's system. They have 1 TiVo HD and 1 TiVo Premiere (both with lifetime, I am pretty sure).

(Realize the HD is less important to this inquiry, but thought I would mention it. Will recommend that they focus OTA programming on the TiVo HD b/c TWC will allow it to be transferred to the Premiere and, as such, watched on the Mini).

I have the MoCa adapter from the TiVo Premiere that has never been used. Understand the instructions on placement and will start there.

What I really need to know is the fastest way to transfer the already activated & PLS Mini over to their account. (I have access to both mine and in-law's www.TiVo.com accounts if needed.) Do I just activate the TSN on the in-law's account and that will initiate transfer? Do I need to call CSR to do it? Can it be done online? Any help will be appreciated.

Programme Delivery Control in the USA

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 01/10/2015 - 09:39
Programme Delivery Control is a system used in Europe where a signal is transmitted (once a second) as part of the digital broadcast. It has two main purposes. It can tell you when a program starts and stops so that it is easier to record accurately if the start and stop time of a show varies from schedule. The second purpose is to allow the network to send scrambled signal to confuse the DVR so that the program can't be recorded. The latter purpose can be defeated by simply setting the recorder for a fixed start and stop time.

Any chance that TV (cable or OTA) in the USA will adopt a similar standard?

Do all Premieres have boot up problems?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 01/10/2015 - 09:34
Anytime my Premiere needs to reboots it gets stuck on start up. I have to unhook the power cord, cable input, ethernet input and take the cable card out to get it to reboot and even at that it does not always work the first time. Is this a common problem with the Premiere.

I would like to exclude Talk Shows from a Roamio Wishlist for Reese Witherspoon.

I've seen how to exclude a show when using a Keyword, but I how to can I exclude the Category Talk Shows ? Categories does not appear to have a Thumbs down (-) option.

For Internet of Things, Chaos Reigns. (Clutter, Too)

Zatz Not Funny! - Sat, 01/10/2015 - 08:46
As expected, the “Internet of Things” was a hot topic at CES. And everyone seems to want a piece of this market. For example, we’ve got an iPhone case maker pitching networked power outlets and the fitness tracker company wants to sell you a Bluetooth light bulb. Sadly, chaos reigns … given the number of competing standards, proprietary solutions, poorly articulated […]

Shark Tank 01/09/2015

I suspect the Doorman deal does not go through after somebody spends 30 seconds on the UPS website and discovers that they already offer different delivery options.

When I have something expensive being delivered, I don't think I want to install a middleman into the process. Otherwise, 95+% of the shipments I get are delivered by UPS or the USPS and are waiting for me when I get home. UPS even drops them at my back door per my "My Choice" preferences. FedEx will redirect to a FedEx Office location close to my workplace when a signature is required.

It seems like this shrinks the customer base down to homes where carriers have decided that packages can't be safely dropped. I was surprised to see him get a deal.
