Out of Network Streaming

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 09/12/2013 - 18:32
I am on the road and am trying to stream both live TV and recorded shows from my Roamio Pro to my iPhone. Every channel or recording I try to stream gives the message - "Away From Home Network: While you're away from your home network, some options are not available."

I thought "Sling" like functionality was part of this?

Partial recordings + conflicting info + ff failures

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 09/12/2013 - 17:54
Although I found a thread describing some fast forward/rewind problems, I haven't found a thread that reports a problem with all the symptoms I am experiencing with my new Roamio Plus here in the Seattle area (Comcast), so here goes:

In approximately one out of twenty recordings made from a Season Pass I find this:

1) The info in the My Shows display says "(partial)" and a length of something less than the full show.
2) On the Playing screen, the green bar shows a partial recording, but the length of time shown is different than that shown in the My Shows display.
3) Playing the recording works until I try to fast forward - it begins to go, then gets stuck and displays the same set of images, as if stuck in a loop. The progress hash mark at the bottom just sticks in one spot.
4) Playing through the whole recording wihtout using FF seems to work at times, but trying again sometimes plays just the end of the recording - where according to the displays there isn't any recording. As it plays past the end of the green bar, the progress hash mark again just sticks and doesn't move.

All the shows happen to be broadcast on the local Fox affiliate, in HD.

I am using a cable card that I moved from my old Tivo HD, where it worked flawlessly for years.

There have not been any power failures while these recordings were being made. There are also no overlap issues (gotta love those 6 tuners!).

I have called Tivo 3 times so far (case # 130903-015457), and have been given 4 different responses. First I was told the signal strength to the cable card (100, 40 SNR) was too high. When I called Comcast to ask about this, they turned me away as having no problem as long as I see a clear picture (I do). Then I was told I needed to do a Kickstart, but it might totally wipe out the box, along with my 80 some season passes. I declined, and asked for a new box. Before that arrived, I discovered another symptom - after deleting the season passes that made the bad recordings, I could not get the option to create a new season pass for them, despite finding an upcoming broadcast in the guide. I was told to rebuild the guide data, which I did, which fixed the new symptom, but not the original problem.

So now I have the new box, but wonder if something about the way I set up the old one caused this problem. I can't seem to find anyone at Tivo who has ever seen or heard of this issue. I'd like to find out more before going through the arduous process of setting up the replacement box.

Slingbox and Roamio combination question

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 09/12/2013 - 16:12
Apologies if this is a dumb question.

We currently have two cable subscriptions, one at our primary home and one at the place where we spend weekends. I would love to drop one of the cable subscriptions but still be able to watch and record live programming on TVs in both locations from the remaining cable subscription. I'm not interested in watching on an ipad in the second location; I want it to be viewable on a TV (or TVs).

Is this possible through a combination of Slingbox and Roamio? If so, what do I need where?

OTA Audio Lower

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 09/12/2013 - 16:10
Any one notice having to crank the audio up a bit higher on OTA recordings?

I have a Denon 3313ci, and generally the volume is around -10.0db to -12.0db for Dish satellite, Dish OTA, Amazon VOD files on the Tivo, but my few OTA recordings on the Roamio Ive tried are like -5.0db. Thats pretty high, 0.0 is reference level. Im outputting DD from the TiVo.

Free space discrepancy

According to My Shows, my Pro is 42% full but the TiVo app reports it is 57% full. Anybody know why the difference?

Roamio Plus - I'm In!

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 09/12/2013 - 15:15
I broke down and picked up a new Plus unit today from Best Buy. I hold you all personally responsible for triggering the UMF on this new TiVo. ;)


Install, Set-up & Pairing went as smoothly as possible, harvesting the M-Card from my XL4 unit. 6 tuners right out of the blocks.

Only delay is MRS functionality between the Plus and the XL4. TiVo reports "up-to" 72 hours before the media access key is released to the new unit. How odd; seems like should be instantaneous. I would have liked to move over my XL4 SPs and recordings this afternoon - but whatever.

UI looks and performs great! Lag was my only complaint from the S2s, S3 and XL4. Looks like a very nice improvement!

Why an extension cable with Slide Remote?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 09/12/2013 - 14:26
I did search... Why is there and extension cable with the slide remote bluetooth dongle? If it's bluetooth shouldn't the signal be wireless and omni-directional? What scenario do you need to extend the dongle (so to speak)?? I'm getting one soon and just wonder..

well I guess it's just for if you have weak signals?

Slingbox and Roamio Plus

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 09/12/2013 - 14:13
I'm trying to connect a Slingbox to my Roamio Plus and can't get past finding the right remote since the Roamio is not yet in the Slingbox directory. I've tried Series 3, Premiere, Premiere 4 plus a slew of others. The remotes that come up are a dull gray in color and none of the buttons work. I have the IR devices to the left of the TIVO logo per another thread.

Can anyone provide assistance? I would like to be able to watch these recorded programs from my iPad and other computers.

Thanks - Lynne Davies

Now way to many shows to watch......

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 09/12/2013 - 12:45
I do really like my new Roamio and think it is by far the best TiVo to date, but with the extra tuners and 3TB HD I am now getting so many recordings I will never be able to watch everything. :D

I have well over 100 sp's and before with only 2 tuners must have had a lot of conflits so I could keep up with everything. Now I have pages and pages and pages of recordings.

Hunger Games: Catching Viewers

TiVo Blog - Thu, 09/12/2013 - 12:00
Katniss Everdeen continues her big screen adventure battling the State of Panem’s supremacy on November 22, 2013, when the second installment in the Hunger Games trilogy, Catching Fire, opens in theaters nationwide. The second trailer for the film, released on July 20th, already has over 1.9 million YouTube views: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=keT5CRhhy84 But how will Lionsgate get the word out to the other 270.5 million U.S. residents over the age of twelve who have not viewed the trailer on the Internet?  Television still proves to be one of the most valuable assets Continue Reading

IR Repeater Available

Check out what Tivo now sells for the Mini and other DVR's not sure how new or old it is, pretty useful. The roamio of course uses RF now, but for those of us still rockin older remotes to use with Receivers etc, this can come in handy.

It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia - S09E01 - The Gang Broke Dee

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 09/12/2013 - 11:56
Well, I don't get FXX so thank god for the internet. I thought this episode was beyond hilarious. Typical Dennis being a d*ck and the gang was funny as ever. Dee's comedy routine was priceless. I really didn't see that end coming, very funny twist. This show continues to be out there and just wrong. I need to watch it again to see if the plot actually makes any sense. What a start to a short season (13 episodes). Shame on FX for moving it to a channel one tier up on most cable networks.

Joke's on Dee!

Stream to iPad to TV via HDMI

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 09/12/2013 - 11:55
I have TiVo stream set up and working and it works great. The specs say that TiVo stream supports 1080i and 1080p. What I can't figure out is if I buy a lightning to HDMI adapter, what resolution will go to the TV.

My goal is to be able to take a TV out on the deck and rather than run a cable out to it and a cable box, I hope to use the iPad over wireless and just buy the lightning to HDMI adapter.

Just don't want to drop $50 on the adapter if it's not capable.

Is it possible for me to create my own folders in my Tivo "now playing" list?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 09/12/2013 - 11:54
I searched the forum on the topic of creating folders in the Tivo "Now Playing" list. However, most of the stuff that I found was a few years old and it did not really answer my question.

Here is the deal......

I have a lot of videos on my computer which my Tivo Premiere is capable of playing just fine.

These videos did not originally come from my Tivo Premiere. But the Tivo can play them.

When I transfer these video files onto my Tivo, I would LIKE the ability to create a folders to put them in. However, I do not know how to do this. As it stands currently, the Tivo lists each individual file one by one by one in the "Now Playing" list.

Help?

Thanks!

Allow legacy tuner functionality in Roamio and Tivo Mini

I would like to have the ability to assign a tuner to a Tivo Mini in the Roamio. Roamio supports DTA but I have a very specific functionality that requires me to have a dedicated tuner to the Mini. I understand I am giving it up and can't record anything on that tuner.
