It's bothered me awhile that it is gone. Did they take it out in a release?

Local Vegas NBC Station Changed Frequency-TiVO Prog. Missing

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/01/2014 - 18:16
I cut the cord a month ago and am using my old TiVo HD XL via Leaf HD antenna. So far so good other than this blip below:

The local NBC affiliate in Las Vegas, Nevada (KSNV) just changed frequency from 2 to 22. During broadcasts last week, viewers have been notified that they would need to do a "rescan" if they received programming via OTA (which I do) to continue to watch network programming.

Here's my dilemma: how soon does anyone think that the TiVo guide will catch up with this? I did the rescan of the channels in the Setting menu under Channel Scan today (notice said on November 1st). New stations were listed with an asterisk (*) next to them. The old stations are still there but when you tune them in, the screens are blank. I have programs on NBC that I record and I am worried that they are not going to get recorded because TiVo (they may or may not know this has happened here) has not updated the guide. I may have to do some manual recordings until this is resolved.

Any suggestions? Should I contact TiVo?

Any help would be appreciated.

Fios...HBO...Tivo Roamio.......

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/01/2014 - 17:14
You have really helped me in the past, so here I am again..

I have Roamio Pro. With Fios.
I bought Netfliks since I have to watch House of Cards
Then I subscribed to Showtimme because I have to watch Homeland

Fios gave me HBO for free for 3 months..all great. But I want to watch older episodes of some shows, and cannot get them through TIVO. I can get them on HBO to go on my tablet, but why is there not an HBO app or link on TIVO so I can watch previous episodes on TV..?. And the search on TiVo when it comes to HBO is poor. Would like too see a schedule or something .

I've had TiVo since it first came out ... 2002? Then gave it up, but with Roamio, I'm Back. Thank you Barbara.. I wonder how many older grandmothers there are.. Like me,,

Signal Strength Unavailable

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/01/2014 - 17:03
I was "learning" about my TiVo Roamio Plus and went to see what my cable signal strengths were. What I got was a message that said "Signal strength unavailable because your cable channel lineup has no digital channels."

I am on Time Warner with the new digital rebuild, so I am pretty sure ALL of my channels are digital.

I don't think signal strength is an issue, but I occasionally get drop-outs and loss of audio.

Has TiVo just not caught up with the new TWC stuff?

Wow, easily the worst comedy I've ever seen.

If this goes past a few episodes, I'll be shocked.

Roamio OTA Software - No MoCA option

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/01/2014 - 13:20
I am attempting to reconfigure a Roamio OTA from Ethernet to MoCA in order to add a Tivo Mini in another room. I seem to have found a discrepancy in the setup instructions as the OTA network settings menu is not providing me an option to use MoCA. I have repeated the guided setup with the same result.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Wishlist not finding TCM & Retro HD channels

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/01/2014 - 13:14
I finally figured out that TIVO seems to not see these channels in HD via a Wishlist query with recording option HD only set to "Yes". One thing that clued me in was on a specific wishlist query for the actor John Wayne with HD only set to NO I had several up and coming HD movies movies showing up, but when I turned the recording option to HD only to Yes then most dropped off, but a few stayed on. The ones that stayed on had the little blue "HD" icon showing up by the movie IN the upcoming list (mavtvhd is one of them), that's IN the upcoming list not over to the side, but all the others that did not have HD icon, even though they were HD channels, dropped off. I called up the technical support person and in explaining this to them they kept defaulting to well it has something to do with my TIVO and me upgrading my hard drive and with them saying they never heard of this before. I even got them to duplicate the John Wayne thing with TCM HD dropping off after turning HD only to yes and they still insisted it had something to do with my hard drive upgrade and them wanting me to redo my guide setup. They also reverted back to TCM HD is just fine and its probably just specific to "John Wayne" query and with me saying well lets pick another actor on TCM HD and see it it happens again and them saying they KNEW it was my hard drive upgrade that was the cause of it and we need to redo your guide setup. How aggravating! I suspect there are more channels its not picking up the HD flag then just those two. Also a another little glitch is it will show some channels in the up and coming list with two instances of the SD channel number, but when you click into it you'll actually see the HD channel number. I got around the big HD flag glitch by turning HD only to No and unchecking my SD versions and marking the HD ones as favorites, so now it seems to defaults to recording the HD ones. Also those who have trouble with Wishlists I have found that in recording options that toggling between "repeats & new", "new only" and "everything" will give you different results and with me in some instances I got more with "repeats & new" than I got with "everything", go figure. FYI I have a new Roamio and am on Brighthouse Tampa.

How to OPT OUT of tracking/logging

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/01/2014 - 13:05
I inadvertantly allowed OPT IN when trying to transfer my season passes to a Roamio. I canNOT find any place to OPT OUT. I chatted twice. Once James just disconnected. Guess he did not like the question. The second time I was told it was in MY Account, Privacy Settings. I can't find it and it suggests calling Tivo.

I just did that and the Rep had no idea what I was talking about.

I did search here and only see threads from 2010 and older.

Any help appreciated.

New v53 errors post 20.4.5 update

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/01/2014 - 11:15
20.4.5 update is perfect on my 2 Roamio boxes; however, I'm now getting v53 errors on the local CBS HD Comcast channel 107 (Seattle). The picture and sound are perfect...except for the floating v53 error. Anyone else having a similar issue? Is there a fix or can the v53 error message be turned off?

I'm not liking the casting of the Zed character. She's too much like a model, and I'm not feeling any supernatural vibe or underlying intelligence from this actress.

Amazon Prime Instant is not working

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/01/2014 - 10:28
I received the new app but it is unusable. All the tiles are squished in the upper right hand corner covering most of the menu options. If I do select prime instant which is the only one visible it just hangs. I have tried checking and unchecking them in channels. I have rebooted the tivo. Any suggestions?

A friend encouraged me to watch this. Could be an interesting story but there's so much spooky music in it that my lip curls. I prefer having the characters, story and words develop my feelings and can do without much music manipulation.

Way back, did Twin Peaks do that sort of music or do I misremember?


Rival Survival

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/01/2014 - 10:15
Thought it was an interesting concept to have a Republican and a Democrat US Senator compete supposedly in the wild and to end up with a communication. Discovery set up the story oddly, and to give them the benefit of the doubt, perhaps symbolically.

First, the boat can't get the Senators to the beach (too many obstacles), so they must swim through shark infested infested waters at the sharks feeding time <g>. However, apparently the production staff doesn't seem to have a similar problem landing their gear, and even recording people with similar clothes on swimming as well as sharks in the water. Perhaps they are the Senators, and perhaps there is really a shark or more nearby. Hard to tell.

As they emerge from the water, they are handsome with Kennedyesque teeth and neat and dry, but then some shots have them appropriately dripping wet.

When I had to keep backing up to check whether the shots were real, I began to lose interest. I realize "reality" shows are scripted, but the Discovery Channel seemed to be too unrealistic in setting this up.

I stopped watching, but I'm curious about other people's takes.

Roamio pro / stream to iOS issues

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/01/2014 - 09:58
I have a roamio pro and i have no issues streaming from my roamio to my premiere. However, on all of my iOS devices when i try to set up the stream it is unable to find any streaming devices. I have rebooted the roamio, rebooted my router, reinstalled TiVo app. Not sure what else to do. Some say looking for a streaming ip in your router and i do not see one. Any suggestions?

So what could the "Unknown error" actually be?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/01/2014 - 09:02
It's pretty clear that most of us here have gotten the "Problem Streaming, an unknown error occurred" at least a few times.

What could the error be? Is the app/proxy bad at dealing with bandwidth fluctuations? Could be be something in the video data that the app can't handle?

What I'd really like to know is if Tivo is interested/able to run it down and fix it…the app is *so* close to being a great solution….

How to test tivo roamio and mini while ensuring the recipient doesn't know?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/01/2014 - 05:28
These two tivo's are christmas gifts for my sister in the family. Neither one has tivo service (She'll set it up) Nor an account (She'll also set it up).
But is there any possible way of unpacking them, plugging them in, checking that they work as they should, and then having it show the factory tivo movie clip and setup process again? This question applies to both the roamio and mini.
