Putting shows on DVD with DVD Recorder

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 07/25/2014 - 15:07
I had a Humax Tivo and loved it. I put shows on DVDs for my oldest son while he was in college. He is out of college and a naval aviator in San Diego and on his own so I thought I could upgrade to a nice Tivo Roamio. Well....he is getting deployed next month and has given me a long list of shows he wants recorded and mailed to him while on the ship. I didn't have the heart to tell him that I don't have the old Tivo hooked up anymore. So here are my choices: I do have a DVD recorder that I could hook up to the Roamio but I cannot find anything that would enable me to put a recording on another device on the Roamio menu (even with my ancient Tivo2 before the Humax, you had the "Save to VCR" option), I could have the DVD recorder record live tv and schedule the recordings which would be a pain as I would have to find out every week which shows plays at what time....or....I can hook up my old Humax Tivo to another TV :oand have to keep my Verizon FIOS box which I was planning on getting rid of since I have a cable card in my Roamio. I'm not the savviest technology expert so I can't do an elaborate set up. I also do not have a computer with a DVD writer any longer, just a laptop with Windows 8 or an Ipad (if that were the route I had to go). Thank you for any help anyone can offer.

Can Tivo stream content outside the USA

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 07/25/2014 - 14:31
I'm traveling abroad right now and can't seem to connect to my Tivo stream from Brazil. All I get is "a network error occurred". I've tried on several wireless networks but I can't even establish a connection. Is there something in the IP addressing preventing me from connecting to discourage viewing US content outside the US?

The show starts tonight on SyFy but with the 3rd episode, not sure why so I watched the first episode on Amazon for free just to get a idea of what it's about. Looks to be a fun show but check it out for yourself.

My Chromecast – 1 Year Later

The Bridge Season 2 (spoilers to current episodes)

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 07/25/2014 - 12:00
No discussion yet? ok then I'll start it.

With the new direction the series has taken in going to a more character driven and less procedural bent, I'm not 100% sure they have found their way.

With 2 episodes in so far I'm ok with some of the changes, at times it feels like I can invest more into the show, but there are some things that I really miss.

Having lost Marco's family I'm having a lot harder of a time connecting with him, and Sonya sleeping with her sisters attackers brother just came out of nowhere, and they have softened her up a lot, she seems to have lost a lot of that quirkiness I found endearing.

What seems trivial and bothers me the most so far is Demian Bichir's inconsistent accent, in S1 his english was very consistently accented, but in S2 it's all over the map, sometimes there's almost no trace of accent in his english. I've seen the actor in other roles being very fluent in english so I'm not sure where the inconsistency is creeping in from.

GSOD on tivoHd- can I buy Roamio and keep 12.95/mnth?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 07/25/2014 - 10:24
Hi all-

Came home last night to find the green screen of death on my 7 yr old TivoHD. I have the 12.95 month to month. I looked at the Roamio today and on Amazon it's $30 cheaper and I get free 2 day ship. We use the TiVo for the excellent guide and time shift- we don't keep a lot we just watch at our leisure. The TiVo site offers me as an existing subscriber the Roamio for 199 and the 12.99 m to m. If I buy the unit on Amazon can I keep the 12.99 when I call to activate and then cancel my old unit? Thanks!

Swapping drives in a Roamio

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 07/24/2014 - 23:14
I swapped out a 1gb drive from Roamio Plus with a 3tb drive I had previously in a Roamio basic. Thought it went ok until I realized none of the recordings I had set were recording. By chance I went into the sys info screen and found that the TSN was missing??

When I did the swap it all worked until the last boot (box had to download a software update) but when it came up it told me there was hardware problem and I would need to reboot the Tivo. Do so and until now I thought I was ok until I found it wasn't recording anything.

I'm doing a clear an reset and see if that helps. Has anyone else seen this before?

HDMI roamio basic fix? Still broke after the summer update.

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 07/24/2014 - 23:10
I had my roamio basic for about 4 months, and one day after coming home from work with the same television the hdmi was not outputting. The television was not updated so whatever was working for the past 4 months all of a sudden does not.

What are my options? I really don't consider an external HDMI adapter as a fix. The UI is nice and all but im not too far from just going with comcast's DVR. I dropped another 20 bucks on the weekness composite cables just to get crappy rca video so thats OK for now but its got all sorts of buzzing which sucks some more. Thanks for any helpful comments.

Bug report: Aspect Correction Mode switches from Panel to Full

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 07/24/2014 - 22:25
Since getting the Summer 2014 software update, I've noticed a bug with the aspect correction mode setting. I have it set to Panel on a 16:9 display. After 24 hours, the video changes to Full aspect, but still displays the setting as Panel. Every time I reset it, it switches back to Full a day later.

I prefer Panel when viewing old SD programs so they don't get stretched horizontally.

Project Runway season 13 (spoilers to date)

Project Runway season 13 starts tonight!

As in previous seasons, I hope to put the episode title in the post title to give people who are behind a signal to stop reading.

New social media twist this season:

"The Good Wife" For Dummies (seeking veteran knowledge)

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 07/24/2014 - 20:03
Yes, I know this show started five years ago, but we're just starting it now.

We're 7 episodes in to the first season, and so far, it's a formulaic thing with each episode having a fully contained legal-based story of varying believability (and I'm not even a lawyer), and the overall arc of the husband's situation and how everyone reacts to it.

It's got such great reviews, and was even nominated for Emmys this year, so it must be (still) doing good things. I like the husband arc, but the law stuff sometimes almost feels like filler between pieces of the husband storyline. I find myself yelling "Oh, COME ON!" at the legal stuff on a semi-regular basis.

I don't want spoilers, just some yes or nos and any general comments

1. Does the show evolve from this format?
2. If not, does the law stuff get better?
3. Is it worth watching five seasons of at this point? (I realize this is quite subjective :) )

Thanks for any non-spoilery info

Well, the first episode in 2014 sure started out with a bang!

Very interesting. Cynthia Nixon discovered that her third great-grandmother took an ax to her third-great-grandfather's head while he was sleeping.

Not all genealogy has to be sensational to be interesting but this was definitely a fascinating find.

Tivo app network remote doesn't work on my Series 3

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 07/24/2014 - 12:45
We've got a Premiere and a Series 3 on our home network and have recently started using the official Tivo app on our iPhones.

We have enabled Network Remote Control on both boxes.

For the Premiere box, everything works great with the remote control feature.

On the Series 3, all the other features of the Tivo iPhone app work, except for the remote control.

Any ideas? We have a third party app that we have used for years called "DVR Remote" that works fine to control the Series 3 over the network, but really want to get the official app working.
