question about the TCD748000

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 03/03/2014 - 17:24
I may have an opportunity to get a Premiere XL (TCD748000). I think the 1TB drive is standard, correct? Does this model also usually come with a glo remote?

Is there an easier way to get to HD channels?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 03/03/2014 - 17:15
Just got a Roamio, and I am currently adding all my shows to record. I used to be able to hit info on the channel guide and there was a button that would ask to take me to the HD channel. Now with the Tivo, let's say I wanted to record How I Met Your Mother. I have to find it in the guide, hit info, go to Explore This Show, and check other show times and then record from there.

Is there a button that will take me to the HD equivalent to the channel I am watching now?

I'm just creating this thread because I want to share this awesome video of deleted scenes from the most recent episode. But in looking for the thread to post it in, I realize that we don't have regular P&R threads, so I decided to just create one where we can discuss if there is something worthy of discussing. Like the video in this link:



Anyone want a free Tivo?

I have an old series 1 tivo for anyone who wants it.

I had upgraded the disks, but I had made no other mods.

I'm in Ealing, west London if you want to pick it up.


Cat5 Crossover Cable works to rapidly transfer content between Series 3 & Roamio

A Cat5 Crossover Cable works to rapidly transfer content between Series 3 & Roamio

A 30 minute show transferred in less than 5 minutes and an hour show in less than 10 minutes.

I have a new Roamio and several older TiVos in the house.

I wanted to move some content between my Series 3 TCD652160 and my new Roamio. My first thought was to use a router or a switch between the two units. When I was looking for cables to connect to a router I found a Cat 5 Crossover Cable that I had on hand to connect directly between two computers. Since the TiVo is really a basic computer, I thought that I would give it a try. I did and it worked.

The only downside was that I couldn't see the content on the Series 3 on my Mac in TiVo Transfer via a wireless connection (usb TiVo adapter) with the crossover cable connected to the Ethernet ports.

Can I use the Crossover cable to connect from my Roamio to my MacBook Pro to speed up the transfer of shows?

When I did a search on this Site I didn't find anything newer than 2010 that addressed connecting two TiVo units.

My first post here :) I have read posts on the Site for years, but I just recently registered.

The 86th Academy Awards – Top Moments

TiVo Blog - Mon, 03/03/2014 - 14:48
The red carpet, the heartfelt speeches, the glamorous fashion… There were many a moment to rewind and re-watch during the 2014 Oscars, but after it was all said and done, one couldn’t help but to ask themself: Was that The Ellen DeGeneres Show or The 86th Academy Awards? Three out of TiVo’s Top 5 moments of the night were Ellen’s, as she kept the audience laughing (or eating delivery pizza) between words of wisdom and gratitude from the Academy Award winners.   TiVo Research identified the following as the evening’s Continue Reading

Universal Remote?

I'm looking for a universal remote for my system. I want to maintain as much function of the Tivo remote as I can, and additionally be able to control my TV, Blu-Ray, and surround sound.

I was able to solve the problem with a "hard" reboot, ie unplug the TIVO. I would try this with any problem as a starting point.

Accessing Roamio with browser

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 03/03/2014 - 10:13
Trying to access my new Roamio Plus via a browser (Firefox). Need username and password after getting Roamio interface using 192.168.xxx.xxx. Earlier models used "TiVo" as username and the media access key as the password. Doesn't work with the Roamio Plus.

What username/password combination is required for the Roamio Plus?

TiVo Roamio Plus in Oscars Swag Bag

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 03/03/2014 - 09:50

Quote: While Matthew McConaughey and Cate Blanchett were taking home Independent Spirit Awards at a ceremony in Santa Monica on Saturday that has begun to honor much the same talent as all the other awards ceremonies, backstage, presenters and stars were plied with swag in the official presenter gift lounge, produced by On 3 Productions.

In addition to New Balance sneakers, Sabra hummus, TiVo’s Roamio Plus, DJI Phantom 2 Vision cameras and year-long memberships to Crunch gym, actors like Angela Bassett, Jane Lynch, Laura Dern and Miles Teller were offered a one-year supply—that’s 24 cartons—of Breyers Gelato Indulgences, a new ice cream available at U.S. supermarkets in flavors like vanilla caramel, strawberry cheesecake and Tiramisu.

Do celebrities even eat ice cream?

“Everyone likes ice cream,” said Rachel Vassak, the brand manager for Breyers. “This is such a ridiculously indulgent product that it’s almost like you can’t even help yourself from trying it.”

With the help of On 3 Productions, Breyers showed off the item in bedazzled tubs, a tactic that parent company Unilever had used previously in suites like this sponsored by I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter.

“We always know in this type of activation, it’s nice to celebrate the glamour,” said Casey DePalma, the marketing communications manager of foods at Unilever. “Date night can be glamorous even if you’re at home with your husband.”

Plus, added Ms. Vassak, the tubs catch the light in a particularly attractive way. “It’s a fun way to celebrate how beautiful the product is,” she said.

Amazon Prime, Streaming vs. Download and Roamio

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 03/03/2014 - 08:57
I've read here in multiple places that Amazon Prime streaming isn't available on TiVos but Amazon download is. Can someone please clarify? When I watch something from Amazon, or Netflix for that matter aren't I streaming? Its just Amazon Prime that isn't available at all, right? But Amazon is?

Thank you.

ZAP2IT - changes

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 03/03/2014 - 08:55
I use ZAP2IT from time to time to schedule TiVo recordings and I've not had any issues but I understand some have. Received this today from ZAP2IT:

Dear Zapit TiVo users-

We know there have been issues accessing the TiVo functionality on Zap2it’s TV schedule and we are excited to announce changes are coming.

Mid-month a new and improved Zap2it will be released, featuring a sleek new design, bold content and streamlined navigation to help you find what to watch and where to watch it more quickly. TiVo functionality will temporarily be removed from the Zap2it TV schedule while we work directly with TiVo to get the TiVo functionality added back into the grid in a more user friendly format later this Spring.

We appreciate your patience and look forward to sharing the new and improved Zap2it with you.

The Amazing Race ALL-STARS - 3/02/14 *Spoilers*

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 03/03/2014 - 00:22
Wow, those teams all finished incredibly close to one another. I've never seen all the teams together at the mat before. It will be interesting at the beginning of next week to see how much time there was between first and 9th.

Jet and Cord really screwed up trying to run to the first challenge. They probably wasted over an hour. Lucky for them, they got a challenge that was right up their alley (putting the car together). And they made a very good decision to give the Express Pass when they did. If you can give it away and the other team will use it immediately so it's out of play, yet it doesn't cause you to come in last, then you've played it perfectly.

I was going to feel really bad for Mark and Mallory if they finished last because they went back for the backpack. But they got to the featherball challenge while all the other teams were still there, so I think it's safe to say they came in last because they sucked at featherball. I was really surprised that Mark was so hung up on his backpack. What could possibly be in there that's important enough to cost yourself a chance at continuing in the race?

Surprised nobody tried the Chinese Cup side of the Detour. I wonder if it was just really far away or if there was something about the description that made the teams decide it wasn't a good choice.

"Helpful" Messages from Tivo

They need to update the messages they send out after you've bought a Roamio!

A couple of days ago I got one telling me how wonderful Showcases are and where to find them... too bad they arent there anymore! Oops!

Now that I think of it... where are they? lol

Primer keeps rebooting

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 03/02/2014 - 19:57
We had this issue for a few weeks got a replacement box from tivo. Worked fine for three dats now it is again rebooting every 20 minutes. We have it attached to an antenna and to the phone for updating. We got a old version of the software and it was working fine until tonight. I have it occurred once after we got it but then I plugged the outlet directly into the wall and it worked for three days. I am thinking it is either a software problem or power supply since we have a new tivo unit. Help if you have any ideas. I am going to call tivo tomorrow and hopefully figure is out
