One Pass (Season Pass) question

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 04/15/2015 - 10:39
I want Tivo to record every HBO Documentary Film. But HBO Documentary Film never shows up in the title or the description. I can and have included HBO, documentary, in search terms but this hasn't always triggered a recording.

This is also an issue with PBS's American Experience which used to be titled American Exprience (like Nature, Nova, etc.) but PBS stopped doing this.

Any ideas?

The Flash S01E18 "All Star Team Up" - OAD 14-Apr-2015

The Good:
"So only Iris doesn't know"

"Oh my God, there's two of them now"

Working out the kinks in Ray's suit

I guess I can accept that even though Flash can outrun bees, since they are everywhere, there's really nowhere to run without being stung.

The Bad:
Wish seen more of Emily Kinney

Not only was the time-travel mechanism was bad, but now they made it worse by having Cisco "remembering" it.

A quick Flash/Arrow question

I'm a little behind on Arrow: the last episode I saw was "The Offer." This week's Flash has somewhat of an Arrow crossover. Do I need to catch up on Arrow to watch this week's Flash?

New to Tivo, Roamio HD PLus on the Way, Mini Questions

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 04/14/2015 - 23:48
I'm a Comcast subscriber and have been for years. My recent deal i got i realized i'm tired of paying for overprice horrible hardware. So i ordered a TIvo Roamio Plus which has 6 tuners of course.

I'd like to get rid of all the hardware including the Comcast DTA box which i have in 2 rooms as well as 2 current DVR's.

If I have a Roamio HD, and 2 Mini's does that mean i only have the ability to record 3 shows at at time? Or if only 2 items are used at the same mean only 2 tuners are used or is 3 tuners used all the time?

Looks to me that both Mini versions are identical except for the RF Remote (which i don't really care about)?

Or with the roamio should I get the new one Mini?

Thanks and I can't believe it took this long!

Chromecast and TiVo - Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge

I've never been able to cast the TiVo screen from my Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 or my Samsung Galaxy S6, both with KitKat 4.4.2 i could get sound but no watchable video.

No longer a problem the new Galaxy S6 Edge can indeed cast the TiVo Stream video and audio very well I might add.

Shows in Tivo Desktop not appearing on TiVo

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 04/14/2015 - 21:44
I'm using Tivo Desktop Plus 2.8.2 on a Windows 7-64 computer with a Series 3 HD TiVo. I have a bunch of recordings on the PC, and haven't used the software much lately, but when I look in the "Now playing on (computername)" folder on the TiVo, there are no shows at all -- the folder is empty.

The computer can see the TiVo just fine, and I just started some program transfers from the TiVo to the PC and they're proceeding perfectly.

Why are no shows appearing in the TiVo folder?

I'm trying to troubleshoot this; does anyone have a troubleshooting procedure for this?

I'm thinking it could be something like the computer's firewall blocking a critical port -- I'll try turning that off and see if it makes any difference.

Thanks in advance

TiVo mini stuttering

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 04/14/2015 - 20:58

I'm curious if anyone else has had 'stuttering' issues with their TiVo mini.

Here's my setup:

- TiVo Premiere 4 with MoCa enabled
- One TiVo mini that's hooked up to my old 13" CRT TV in a laundry room.

Because the Mini was stuttering -- usually only on certain channels -- I thought maybe it was the cable company. But the stuttering does not happen on the Premiere 4. I did have the cable company come out to check, and they gave me some new wires, but nothing helped.

Thinking the Mini was probably bad, I just bought a new one (especially since they came with the lifetime subscriptions this month) to replace the old one -- but it's having the exact same trouble!

As far as the channels I generally have trouble with, they're local broadcast stations, I believe in HD. The Mini is set to display at 4:3 ratio, in any resolution (480, 720, 1080) because it 'tested' good with all those displays. (I tried setting it to only 480i/p, but then the picture didn't look quite right on other stations.)

For some odd reason, the Mini can't be set for the older SD menus, but that's a complaint for a different topic.

What else can I check?

Video Providers on Mini

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 04/14/2015 - 19:58
Why won't TiVo fix the bug with Video Providers on the Mini? I have unchecked AOL On (and now Yahoo) on my Roamio, but they still appear on the Mini.

It's annoying to see Video Providers that I don't want to see on the Mini.

iOS app stopped working with Roamio Plus

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 04/14/2015 - 19:05
It's been working for a year and a half and has suddenly stopped accessing my Roamio Plus on both iPad and iPhone. It just does not see it. If I tap to change devices, it just shows the Mini that is on the network, not the Roamio. I reset routers, restarted the Roamio, deleted and reinstalled the app, changed network from Moca to wifi and back, all to no effect. I can, however, access the Romaio from my Mac with kmttg. TiVo support has been no help. Suggestions will be appreciated.

S# Front panel all lights and Gray video

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 04/14/2015 - 15:57
After about 10 years of service and getting 'her' 3rd HDD last summer, my (now backup) Series 3 is doing this odd thing.

Out of the blue while in stand by mode, the front panel lights all come on (as if booting) and when the TV is powered on, it is a solid gray screen unresponsive to inputs. I power cycle it with a 10 second pause between off and on, and it boots and seems to behave normally. At some random time later, it has this happen again. It did this last night and the bright display woke me up... I left her unplugged.

Suggestions? Is she jealous of my Roamio that pushed her out of the living room? :confused:

Bates Motel 306 - "Norma Louise" (Apr. 13,2015)

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 04/14/2015 - 15:19
:eek: Best episode of the series so far!!

All I can say (again) about Freddie Highmore and Vera Farmiga is that their acting abilities as far as emotional highs and lows and psychotic behavior is amazingly believable!

Norman has crossed another major line towards his transformation into Tony Perkins' (Hitchcock's) original (and definitive) portrayal of Norman Bates.

I freakin' LOVE this show! :up::up:

I can't understand why there aren't regular threads discussing each episode. :confused: I can't be the only fan of "Bates Motel" on TCF, can I?

Younger - Full Season - *SPOILERS*

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 04/14/2015 - 15:01
I'm just getting caught up with this and am enjoying it. It's not the best, but it's miles ahead of shows like The Odd Couple and One Big Happy where I canceled the 1P within the first or second episode. I've never been a big fan of Debi Mazar but so far she's okay.

It has a tiny Selfie-ish feel to it (which I liked) which means it's likely not long for this world.

Of course she won't be able to keep up the charade forever--especially if her daughter comes back and she keeps running into people from her "old" life--but I'm interested in how they handle it all.

Anyone else watching?

Question about Transferring Shows

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 04/14/2015 - 13:01
I just ordered 2 Roamio Plus's to Replace my Series 3 HD and Premier. I know that on those units, you can transfer shows back and forth if the show permits it. My Question, how does the Roamio Plus handle that? Does it do the same? and also, can you Stream from one Tivo to the other instead of having to transfer? I know that the Mini Streams.. Just not sure how it works between 2 Roamio Tivo's

Thanks, Connor

Mini and Series 3 HD same room, Remote conflicts

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 04/14/2015 - 12:29
Is there any way to have a Mini and S3-HD in the same cabinet. The mini (a newer model) set for RF. But the RF remote must still send IR as the Series 3 HD unit responds to it's buttons. And secondly the Mini will also respond to certain buttons on the HD remote. If I hide the mini then it does not respond to the HD remote, but unfortunatly the HD will still respond to the Mini remote. Guess it's time to start trimming down on some equipment
