Help with Telnet script for mini

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 01/13/2015 - 11:25
I've been working on keeping my minis from sleeping using a telnet script, but I don't understand enough to do it properly.
Here's my script so far: 31339

But I can't find anything about how to maybe delay before the "send" command (or if that's even necessary), or how to close when done, etc.

Every thread on this topic assumes telnet knowledge, so if anyone can comment, or even post a script example, that would be awesome. :):up:

Tivo Roamio OTA stops recording when TV turns off

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 01/13/2015 - 07:15
I believe I've answered my own questions thinking about this while lying in bed last night:

-Sometimes when I record a program when I'm not home, The program doesn't record and the "History" menu says "no signal". But when I turn the TV on, the signal is fine.


-While I'm watching a program and I go to bed early, I press "record", turn off my TV, and go to bed, only to see that the rest of my program DID NOT record.

I believe this is happening because when I turn off my TV, it also turns off my amplified Mohu Leaf 50 antenna. My antenna is plugged into my USB port of the TV so when the TV goes off, so does my antenna, therefore no signal to my Tivo and no recording.

Does this sound logical or could there be some other problem? Thanks!!

I'm Stupid, I need help with Splitters and future MoCA

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 01/13/2015 - 06:12
Yesterday I finally installed my CM 3018 antenna and I need to choose a splitter that will allow for MoCA in the future. I don't know the difference between Balanced / Unbalanced, 7.5Ohm / 3.5Ohm. Now I'm not even sure I've bought the right RG6 Coax.

(Mediabridge Coaxial Digital Audio/Video Cable (50 Feet) - UL CL2 In-Wall Rating - Triple Shielded F-Pin to F-Pin with Easy Grip Connector Caps - Black)

TIVO is still in the box by the way, I have to make certain this antenna pulls in all the channels it can WELL before I cut the cord. (married) if you know what I mean!

So far I've attached the antenna to the tv and programmed it, it pulls in 40 OTA channels which is good. but I need to split this to other TV's in the house and make it MoCA capable at the same time.

Problem with multiple transfers

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/12/2015 - 23:45
I have two Tivos -- a new Roamio and a Premiere. My setup until this week was the Premiere and a Tivo HD. I often transfer tv between between the Tivos. Starting the first transfer is working fine. When I add another transfer, what used to happen was I'd get a screen saying that the new transfer would be copies after the transfer in progress was done. OK fine. With my new Roamio and Premiere combo, however, I don't see that screen. I just get the blue spinning wheel until the request seems to time out. No screen about adding it to the files to be transferred, no sign of it in history or to do. The same thing happens whether trying to transfer from Roamio to Premiere or vice versa. The Roamio is connected via Ethernet to the router. The Premiere is connected via Ethernet to a Powerline adapter in the bedroom.

Any ideas on how to resolve this? The Roamio is the new factor here, but shouldn't it be able to add more than a single transfer?

kmttg can't refresh "Now Playing" list

Dear Folks,

kmttg has suddenly stopped working properly for me. I get the following error message when I try to update my "now playing" list from my Tivo Premiere XL:

Everything was fine three hours ago.

I double-checked and re-entered the MAK. I have connectivity-- kmttg finds my Tivo just fine and it can download the ToDo List and the Season Pass list on the Remote panel just fine.

Was running an older version of kmttg, so I just updated to v1.1i. Made no difference. Tried switching from Boujour to Beacon. Made no difference.

Rebooted the Tivo. Made no difference. I am stumped.

The Good Wife "The Debate" 1/11/2015

Wow, all kinds of disclaimers before the start of the ep. I'm surprised they actually aired it. But I'm glad they did since it was another good one.

Alicia and Prady debating in the kitchen was great.

I really like Eli's daughter. She's very entertaining.

I (love to) hate David Lee. I'm so happy he's back (seriously!) Alicia sure didn't seem happy about it. How long until it's Lockhart, Agos, Lee?

Sound cuts out when changing viewed program

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/12/2015 - 18:09
I have the Roamio basic.When I change from watching live TV (OTA) to watch something recorded, and when I change from one recorded show to another recorded show, the sound cuts off. In order to get the sound back, I have to turn off the TV for a couple seconds, and then when I turn the TV back on the sound is back on. Any suggestions for a fix? Thanks.

TiVo’s Top Moments for the 2015 Golden Globes

TiVo Blog - Mon, 01/12/2015 - 17:15
It was a raucous evening of accolades, jabs, political commentary, and no-holds-barred humor with the occasional award thrown in for good measure. The 2015 Golden Globes marked the end of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s hosting triad. As befitting the “informal Oscars” presenters and recipients were more comfortable to speak their mind and let go with the occasional expletive (yes, Kevin Spacey, we’re talking to you). So, without further ado, here are TiVo’s Top Five Moments for the 2015 Golden Globes:   8:05pm – During their opening monologue, Tina Fey Continue Reading

Staples Connect Works With Nest

Zatz Not Funny! - Mon, 01/12/2015 - 16:42
Last year at CES, Zonoff’s demo suite was full of the Staples Connect hardware they power along with a variety of familiar brands like Lutron and Jawbone. This year, several other friends joined the party including the Google Nest smart thermostat and a souped-up, Sonos-fighting Bose sound system. The desire for Nest integration is obvious, although this is the first we’ve […]

Roamio backs out to NPL when stopping play

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/12/2015 - 16:12
Anyone else notice that the Roamio will sometimes back all the way out to the NPL if you press the left arrow to stop playback? Usually it operates as expected and backs up one step to the options menu (resume, delete, bonus features, etc.). But every once in a while it backs all the way out to the NPL. This happens regardless of where you are on the time line and I have yet to discover a trigger.

More of a nuisance than anything else.


Comcast Cable Card Charges?

SOAK: pyTiVo & folders?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/12/2015 - 13:28
Apologies in advance if this is a dumb question. :o

I have been away from pyTiVo for a very long time. I have a quick need to move a couple collections of .mkv files to my TiVo.

I installed pyTiVo onto my Win7 machine with no issues and was able to subsequently transfer a few samples files w/no issue.

I do recall from prior efforts there might be a method that will permit transferring files into folders on the TiVo side. They are in folders on PC side, but my transfer samples seemed to ignore the folder info.

I'm looking for a bit of quick guidance to point me in the right direction.


Webvideo (mind.tivo.com) broken? When play, breaks live TV and playback

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/12/2015 - 11:47
Hey Guys,

I started having issues with my Premiere Tivo. I figured it was the HD, but it checked out (full kickstart 54, WD tools). On supports recommendation, I purchased a Roamio. Same exact issue.

After much heartache, I figured out anything that is pushed to the Tivo through webvideos (mind server), when I try and play it, the screen goes black. I'm then unable to pull up live TV, DVR diagnostics, or any playback. A reboot fixes it. Same exact behavior on Premiere as Roamio.

Has anyone else seen this? Is there anything I can do? I see the same issue when I push with pytivo, which uses the same process.

Shows that almost lost you, but now you're addicted...

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/12/2015 - 11:44
In watching the latest amazing episode of Person of Interest I was reminded that I sampled a few episodes not once but on two separate occasions, and gave up on it both times as being just another boring procedural. Then Shaw turned up and I liked her character enough to start watching it again from the beginning. Now I think it's one of the best shows on television, and not just because of Sarah Shahi :).

Fringe is another show that I had to give a second and third look before coming to my senses (Firefly, on the other hand, is a show that I've sampled three times now and just can't get the love for it).

Are there other shows people gave up on but came back to for some reason and then got hooked?

TiVo Premiere TCD746320

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/12/2015 - 11:36
Selling one TiVo Premiere TCD746320 with stock 320GB drive. This is a two-tuner model that supports OTA (antenna) and/or cable.

Comes in original TiVo box, with brand new remote control and power cord.

There is a small blemish on the front of the unit, which does not affect use.

This unit was last running on a $6.95/month rate, which may be transferable to a new owner. I couldn't get a clear answer out of TiVo about this.

Asking $50 plus shipping. Or make me an offer.

Complete Power Supply Failure

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/12/2015 - 11:23
Hi, I have a Tivo HD that worked perfectly till a power outage yesterday. There were three times in about fifteen minutes the power failed in my home. At this point I switched off the breaker to my family room but this was apparently too late, now with the power on there is nothing from the Tivo. No lights, no harddrive activity, and no fan. I pulled the cover and checked for voltage on the back of the motherboard connector from the power supply and found zero voltage on any of the wires. Ground was good. I see a lot of failure stories about capacitors but the symptoms are usual boot loops not complete failure.

My question is this still possibly just capacitors or am I looking for a complete new power supply?

Sheldon and Leonard had quite a talk. Sheldon is going through a lot of changes but I'm glad to see they are moving the character forward.
