TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 01/11/2014 - 12:51
Now that I seemed to have my transfers figured out..The ones I did transfer wont seem to Group together. I tried hitting the red c button to group..ect But nothing seems to work.
Is there a way to custom create one..or a way to get all my kids shows grouped back together again.

Netflix controls on remote?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 01/11/2014 - 12:37
Is there a link that describes what buttons control the functions for the Netflix app? For example, I want to stop playing the current content and go back to the previous Netflix screen, to select another episode? I am pressing the "clear" button on the TiVo remote and it brings me back to the main Tivo menu.


Roamio wifi streaming

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 01/11/2014 - 11:04
How is it? The router is across the hall for me and would be hard to hard wire. I would need to drop down a heat duct then go back up another... So has anyone had good luck with wifi streaming?
My tv is smart with wifi and the Netflix app works great...

Keyboard for Tivo Humax DVD??

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 01/11/2014 - 10:57
Help! I volunteered to convert the in-laws VHS tapes to DVDs. I'm using my old Humax Tivo Series 2 to record the tapes and burn the DVDs. Using the remote control to laboriously tap out titles is getting old. Does anyone know if the Tivo Slide remotes work with an old Series 2? If not, is there ANY other way to get some keyboard functionality on a Series 2 to make typing titles easier?

Return to the beginning of recording program?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 01/11/2014 - 08:53

Playing around with my new Roamio and there's one feature that I loved from my TiVoHD that I can't seem to get working on the Roamio..

If I turn on the TV and it's in the middle of whatever program is on, when I had the S3 I could basically fast forward to the end of the program, hit fast forward again and it would loop around to the beginning of the program.

I can't seem to make this work on the Roamio. Is it something I have to program or was this feature removed? Is there another way to quickly go to the beginning of the program you're watching, or do I have to go through the TiVo menu, My Shows, etc...

Updated Apps?

I saw a message on my TiVo Central telling me that there were updates to YouTube and Opera TV apps. It mentioned DIAL support etc. Are these new versions or did I just miss noticing it before? They look different to me but I haven't been using them too much lately.

Can you operate 4 TiVos with 2 remotes?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 01/11/2014 - 06:16
I have a Series 3 and a Premiere set up in our bedroom. I was able to program each to work independently on an older glo remote with a 1/2 switch. I might be putting two other Series 3 in one room in a basement area. Want to then do the same thing for them as well.

Is it possible to have 2 additional TiVos work with another remote that has the 1/2 switch? Or can you only do this one time in a network since I see that it changes it in the system information area. Basically, can you program 4 Tivos to operate on 2 Tivo remotes (w/ 1/2 switches)?

Are Tivo products getting worse with each new model?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 01/11/2014 - 06:02
I have three series 2s that I never had a problem with. At that time I was always telling people how good they where. I got a series 3 and had alot of problems with it getting stuck on start up. Thinking that it might just be that machine, I then got a Premium and have had more problems with it getting stuck than the series 3. I am now thinking if I where to get a Roamio it would probably never even turn on or blow up upon plugging it in. Because of these problems my opinion of Tivo has really soured. I never tell people about Tivo anymore. I fell Tivo dose not stand by it's product and is getting worse with each model. What is your opinion and how widespread do you think some of these problems are with some of the series 3s and Premiums? I would think a least they would offer a trade in on the lemon machines. It's not if we want something for free but only what we pay for.

Roamio Plus - Tuners go dark.

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 01/11/2014 - 00:49
New roamio arrived but I appear to be having a little trouble with the unit itself. On Frontier Fios, called and received the newest cable card. I thought that everything was going great after the first day but all of a sudden, I lost all audio and video. Went into the DVR diagnostics, and all tuners are between 80-84% signal strength, and SNR is 31-33db for all 6 tuners. Nothing I do can bring the stations back. Restarting the box brings all tuners back to normal.

Ok, small glitch I thought, it happened once, but then it did it another two times a little over an hour apart. Same black screen, no audio but with all signals in the recommended range under the diag screen. Restarted and all was working.

Called Frontier. They rolled a tech out to replace the cable card with another one. A day passed and I thought it was fixed, bad cable card I thought. Then low and behold, it did it again this evening. Of course this messes up the scheduled recordings that are trying to record.

Has anyone else had this trouble? Should I be thinking this is a hardware thing and should I be getting this unit replaced?


Multiple output resolution

Premier XL. I'd like to use the 1080p output of the HDMI and 720p on the component at the same time. Is this possible?

Upgraded to Romio, ipad app stopped working

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 01/10/2014 - 21:04
Recently added a new Roamio today to my existing two Premieres. I had a stream, which I unplugged.

When I try to use the ipad app, I get the login screen asking for a media access key. I check the DVRs and the key is the same key that it has always been.

I enter the key, and I'm immediately punted back to the login screen.

HDMI streaming sticks are everywhere now, but a new one powered by Alticast, and shown for the first time at CES, comes with an interesting twist. The HDMI Media Express Stick includes both the Reference Design Kit (RDK) software bundle developed by Comcast (and now jointly managed with Time Warner), and Android support. That means it [...]

Roamio Upgrade Offer

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 01/10/2014 - 15:38
I received a Roamio upgrade offer, back in November, which I recently took advantage of, and am setting up today.

It was for a Roamio Plus for $749 with lifetime service ($150 off the regular price).

What I can't figure out anywhere is whether or not activating this Roamio will deactivate service on one of my lifetime Premieres. The offer does list the TSN of one of my Premieres, but doesn't say anything about deactivating service on that Premiere.

(It's particularly important to me, as I'd really rather 'replace' the other Premiere, since the one with the TSN listed in the letter has a bunch of programming that would need to be transferred)

Transfere Lifetime Service from Elite Premiere to Roamio Plus (Yes! Tivo did it)

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 01/10/2014 - 15:11
The last December bought a Tivo Roamio Plus from ABT.com with the offer $339.99, expecting sell my Tivo Elite Premiere aka 4XL wiht LTS and purchase a Lifetime Service for $399 for the new Tivo Roamio Plus.

I realized later that my account doesn't shows the Multi-Service Discount (MSD) the first month of service for the Tivo Roamio Plus, I chat today with Tivo via online and the represent told me that I don't qualify for MSD monthly or lifetime so I was decided to cancel my service and return my brand new Tivo Roamio Plus.

I called to Tivo Customer Service and request cancel the service and they asked me why, I explained that I did not get any discount anyways being a loyal customer for years and several Tivos in my account. The represent inquiry me if I got the discount in the Lifetime Service $100 I would get, I answered NO, so he put me on hold for a while and comeback with this offer.

Tivo will transfer my actual Lifetime Service from the Elite Premiere to my Roamio Plus, and I will pay $199 for get a Lifetime Service for the old Elite Premiere. I will save $200 or $100 depending if you qualify or not for the MSD.

The Elite Premiere I will sell on Ebay to recover the cost of my $199 LTS and the new Roamio Plus, so I can ask more to Tivo. ;) :up:

The represent name is Victor, kudos for him and Tivo.

"Orange County Choppers" on CMT? Anyone?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 01/10/2014 - 15:10
Been on for a while now.

I keep missing it, trying to do some catch-up On Demand.

Same guys, naturally, same show as American Chopper, but it centers only on Senior's shop, with a new guy (Evan) doing some fabrication and some managing. Sort of a replacement for Paulie.

One I'm watching right now-
For some reason Evan keeps his RV-type trailer on the OCC property. They prank him by tipping it over using a forklift.

Hillarious. :rolleyes:

He finds out and tries to get out of Sr.'s office to stop what's going on. Christian blocks him and Evan ends up putting his fist thru a wall.


OCC at its best, whatever that is.

Anyone else even trying to keep up?
