Roamio Plus for sale, San Diego North County area

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 12/06/2014 - 15:22
Roamio Plus for sale. Brand new they are three-nineteen at Amazon, I will let a TCF member make me an offer. I have the device and the power cord, but for the life of me I cannot find the remote as we are a Harmony household and never used the peanut. We got tired of the tuning adapter/cable card game so switched to U-verse-- I'm not aware of any issues with this (other than the usual cable company shenanigans with tuning adapters) and believe it to work as well as from the factory. I just booted it and it came up to the cablecard screen. PM me.

ETA: There is no lifetime subscription or contract or anything like that on this device.

Dish and CBS strike deal, but auto ho neutered

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 12/06/2014 - 12:22

I put this in the coffeehouse because I think it is a relevant conversation about commercial skipping and why tivo hasn't implemented hopping technology. Expect the other broadcasters to quickly follow suit.

I also think it goes to the fact that broadcasters will work hard to safeguard the advertising revenue - keep this in mind as we move to an IP on demand streaming future - most likely designed around the Hulu Plus model

Quote: According to a joint press release, Auto Hop will now be disabled on CBS for a full seven days after shows premiere in primetime. That's a valuable window for broadcasters: one of Nielsen's audience-measuring metrics, known as C7, estimates the number of viewers who watch the commercials for each show during its premiere and any DVR viewings up to seven days after. Broadcasters use those metrics to sell ads and set prices for spots.

But for Dish customers, it effectively kills Auto Hop. Before today's agreement, primetime shows watched after 1AM the following day would have the commercials automatically "erased." Now subscribers will either have to wait a week to watch the latest episode of their favorite show, or they'll go back to the old way of doing things: manually fast-forwarding through commercials on their DVR.

Shameless Season 5

Can't wait for the new season to begin. So many storylines to look forward to, from Ian's bipolar storyline to Frank's sobriety it should be an interesting season.

Uhhh... Is AMERICAN CHOPPER back on Discovery Channel?

Discovery Channel
American Chopper - Shaq Bike NEW

It gets weirder.

Orange County Choppers - Bikes For Everyone! NEW

Okay. When the show got cancelled, they moved to the CMT channel, and changed the name to Orange County Choppers. Junior was nowhere to be seen. Just the OCC guys at the original shop.

That lasted 8 episodes, which was apparently all there was supposed to be.

Now, both American Chopper AND OCC are running NEW episodes, the same night, on Discovery Channel?

Has anyone heard anything about this?

Foolish ? question

So my RCA DVR 80 died and now have my THR22 set up and networked.
The question,
I have a hard drive enclosure that allows me to connect a HD to my computer.
Can I connect the HD from my old DVR to my computer and transfer contents to my THR22 via the network?

When you activate a Roamio pro and disconnect an old tivo, will all my recorded shows,show up automatically?

Tivo Desktop only shows 3 out of 4 boxes

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 12/05/2014 - 23:56
I had 3 Tivos (premiere and 2 XLs). Just got a Roamio Pro to eventually replace the 2 XLs. In Tivo Desktop, I would see the 3 boxes in the drop down list for selecting shows to transfer. After activating the Roamio, the Premiere is no longer in the drop down list. It is still active and in use.

Does Desktop have a limit of 3 machines?

The same thing happens on 3 different PCs running Tivo desktop.

Anyone hear anything about the TiVo Mega lately?

Since its announcement, the TiVo Mega seems to have dropped out of sight.

Anyone have any recent info about it?

Tuner fails then comes back

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 12/05/2014 - 19:52
(Moved from another thread that no longer seems appropriate)

For the past few (couple?) weeks, my Premiere was having trouble getting channels, seemingly at random. It would try to record, but there would just be a blank screen and when the "recording" was done there would be nothing in Now Playing. At the same time, I also started having problems with extremely intermittent pixelization, drop-pouts, stutters, etc. Not constantly, but maybe a few little glitches each show.

Yesterday I got a Roamio, and since then it's been a nightmare. Frequent "Searching for channel" errors, frequent "Unauthorized" errors, frequent "Cannot get a signal" errors. If I jump from tuner to tuner, I can eventually get a channel to show up, and once I even managed to get all six tuners where I wanted them. But when I change channels, often I end up with an error again, and the problem sometimes cascades. Early in the Roamio process, they had me go to Comcast and swap out my CableCard, so now I have a new TiVo, and new CableCard, but similar problems (not identical; with the Premiere there was never an error message). At one point I was thinking I only had a certain number of functioning tuners, but that's apparently not the case since I did have six working at one point.

Any ideas?

SP only first-runs?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 12/05/2014 - 19:21
Greetings All,

I've owned\upgraded (3) TiVos since 2004 and I know it happens from time to time that the Season Pass will record re-runs, but lately in the pass month I've seen a huge increase in this happening... I don't know if its because the Networks & Cable channels are rounding out their programming for the Christmas specials and they're throwing out a LOT or re-runs or there is a switch/flag not being set in the TiVo guide programming... Anyone else seeing this issue?

Thanks in advance! :)

roamio antenna & cable together?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 12/05/2014 - 17:18
I bought a roamio basic and a mini with the idea of using the antenna and cable at the same time. But it appears that with one coax connection, I have to use or the other but not both.

Does anyone know if there is a workaround for this?

My goal is to eventually leave the cable and just use the internet and the antenna.

I'm replacing a premiere xl4 and series 3. I've had terrible luck with the xl4 so I am very nervous about putting all my eggs in one basket. So far, I'm beginning to doubt my decision and am wondering if I should just pack it up and send it back, but hopefully, it will work out.


30 Second Jump

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 12/05/2014 - 15:53
The 30 second jump feature on the Roamio is a scan rather than an jump as on older TiVos. This is not as quick as the old 30 second skip, and I don’t like seeing the scan.

Is there a way to program back in the old 30 second skip?

If TiVo has MoCA connection, can you connect XBOX/PS3/Roku through TiVo?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 12/05/2014 - 13:31
It works that way with AT&T Uverse equipment.

I'm not currently using MoCA, but the answer to this might help me decide how to configure some things.

Basically, I just want to know if a TiVo with a MoCA connection also functions as a MoCA-Ethernet bridge.

Premiere GSOD Reboot Loop

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 12/05/2014 - 13:30
I have a TiVo Premiere XL (TCD748000) with an original 1 TB (WD10EVVS) drive that I think is failing. The symptoms are: recordings freeze/pixelate, no guide information, cannot rewind live TV. I used ddrescue to recover the drive to a new 1TB drive (WD10EZEX). The ddrescue process completed successfully and indicated 35 errors. Unfortunately, when I loaded the new drive into the TiVo, I experienced the same issues as I saw with the old drive. I tried a KS 57, and now am in a perpetual GSOD reboot loop.

2 questions:
1. Does anyone have experience with this that can offer options to get me back to a functional TiVo?
2. Can someone provide a clean OS for the TCD748000 in the even that I have to go that route?

Thank you!

Turning on Groups in My Shows not working for remote Tivos

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 12/05/2014 - 13:04
Just got a new Roamio Pro and transferring all my recordings from a Tivo HD to it. I turned on groups under my shows hitting the A button and setting it to On. When I went to view the Tivo HD from the Roamio, it was not listing shows in Groups. I had to hit Enter and then enable Groups that way. Did this last nite.

Checked this morning to check on the transfer queue and add more shows to transfer. It was not showing Groups any more. Enabled it and then looked at my Premiewe Tivo. It was not showing groups and I had to Enter and set it then too.

Shouldn't the Groups option be set once under My SHows and be used for viewing all other remote devices also? Why did it go back to not grouping when viewing the remote HD?

Anyone else seeing this?

Powerline Adapters Screwup

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 12/05/2014 - 12:55
First of all, my Tivo Premier is hooked up to my router via two power lines, one into the router, and one into the Tivo. I've never had a problem with it.

Two days ago I added a third power line to my laptop. I didn't know exactly what I was doing, so I just plugged it into my laptop and pushed the pair button.

Ever since then, I cannot get my Tivo to hook up to the internet for downloads.

I took the power line out of my laptop. I disconnected the first two power lines and paired them up again and replaced them into the router and Tivo.

If I have the power line into the actual Tivo, it says the network cable is loose (or something to that affect). I then made sure it was a good fit. No dice.
Then I took the power line out of the Tivo and put it into the back of my Smart TV (not sure where it was originally, my husband can't remember how he set it up the first time and he doesn't know much about electronics either). The TV is connected to the internet, no problems. But when I tried to connect the Tivo to the Network via the Smart TV ethernet plug in, I get the message that there is no DHCP and that I am not connected to the internet. All this because I tried to put a power line into my laptop. It has turned into a nightmare.

Any ideas? (Remember, baby talk here, I don't know much about electronics.)

Thanks for your time.


Transfer Ext. hard drive from Series 3 to Roamio Plus

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 12/05/2014 - 12:49
Installed a WD My Book AV DVR Expander (1TB, SATA) on my Series 3 with no problems about a month ago. Fast forward to today and I'd like to move the drive to my new Roamio Plus, not much caring if I keep any content recorded as such. After I plugged it in to the R+ I got a message that the drive was not compatible. AFAIK, it should be so I thought I had to "decouple" the drive in the Series 3 but the instructions were to just unplug and remove.

So, is the WD NOT compatible with the Roamio Plus? If it is, what do I need to do to get it to work?

Thanks in advance.
