Help! Web Video HotList Frozen

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 01/31/2014 - 15:14
PLEASE HELP! "Web Video HotList Frozen" on my Roamio. (interface to BROWSE web content) I can get to the app interface, it loads and looks modern and pretty, but once in there none of the RF remote buttons do a single thing, except for the TiVo button which kicks me right out of the app. (I'm blocking IR reception due to unrelated reasons)

BACKGROUND INFO: This is a 2 week old (lowest end) Roamio with OTA only, using both Ethernet and WiFi. I have Lifetime service, new remote batteries, and a 3TB WD AVGP single HDD inside. All other TiVo functions and screens seem to work fine. I can even use the normal FIND (or my PC's web browser via TiVo.com) to download web content to Roamio, but the primary "Web Video HotList" app seems to not respond to any controls.

PS: I got no response before, think because I posted in the wrong forum. So admin, feel free to delete the other one.

Sell & transfer a tivo mini to others?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 01/31/2014 - 15:08
Is it just as easy to sell and transfer a lifetime'd mini, to someone else, as w/ a regular lifetime Tivo? What's the going price?

Still deciding on taking the advisor discount for Mini;
not sure I can use it to replace my lifetime'd Premiere, as I have an S3 as main device that I can't directly stream to the mini, have to transfer to my roamio first which is a bit of a pain.

Will a TWC channel line up change (combining HD/SD channels) cause me an issue?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 01/31/2014 - 14:41
My local TWC cable system in Austin is changing the channel lineup in March and basically combining the SD/HD channels such that instead of having an equivalent HD channel for a SD channel, there will now be one new channel. The online FAQ's mentions this here:
Where can I find HD channels?
The new lineup is no longer broken up by HD and SD channels. HD converters will show you the best signal available of a channel or program, which is usually HD. SD converters, meanwhile, will show only SD channels.


So will my Roamio plus, cable card and tuning adapter take care of this automatically for me, or is it possible that TWC's "HD Converters" mentioned above is what will be needed?

Comcast Cablecard Woes

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 01/31/2014 - 12:48
I had to call TiVo three times today...and spoke with Comcast on 4 different calls. Comcast kept insisting that my cablecard was paired...yet my Roamio disagreed. Finally, on the last call the Comcast technician "manually paired" it...and instantly I had a cable guide. HOWEVER...the premium channels are not coming through...they show up on the guide, but don't play.

So, they're sending out a repair guy this afternoon to look into it.

This process really sould be simpler.

New Netflix Interface does not include Subtitle Button

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 01/31/2014 - 11:23
Has anyone noticed with the new Netflix app that when you choose a title the list of options does not end with the subtitle on/off choice. I saw this last night when signing in for Breaking Bad. When I exited and signed in using my Sony internet TV it showed up as the last choice as usual. I tried using the normal Tivo subtitle method (info button, up/down arrow) when in Tivo Netflix but all it did was abort the Netflix. Does anyone know how to toggle subtitles in the new Tivo Netflix interface?

What is the version number on cable card (Verizon) that I want?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 01/31/2014 - 11:22
I'm getting a roamio pro next week. Upgrading from premiere 2 tuner model. I remember awhile back reading about issue with older cable cards not working correctly with the roamio 6 tuner units.

Thanks!

Tired of reboots Roamio Pro

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 01/31/2014 - 10:19
Without a doubt my Roamio Pro is the most bug prone DVR I have ever one, that includes three Tivos and two Replay TVs. My Roamio just random reboots. Last night my Romanio rebooted at 9 PM while I was watching a recorded show, and sometime around 11:50 PM while I was recording Letterman, Leno and Kimmel. It's now to the point I have to dual record shows on my Tivo Premiere, and if recording more than otwo shows at once, then record shows three through whatever on the Roamio Pro and hope I don't see a reboot. Anyone else seeing random reboots?

Why is Verizon Looking to Push LTE Multicast in TVs?

Zatz Not Funny! - Fri, 01/31/2014 - 09:53

Verizon has remained steadfast in its claim that it will not use the acquisition of Intel’s OnCue assets to launch a nationwide over-the-top video service. However, the fact that Verizon is now apparently talking to CE manufacturers about embedding LTE multicast technology in TV sets does have me wondering how long the company will stick [...]

Roamio rewinds too far after fast forward

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 01/31/2014 - 09:44
This applies to my Roamio basic (four tuners).

Anyone else find that the Roamio sometimes rewinds much too far after a fast forward? This seems to be very inconsistent and seems to depend on background activity. Most of the time, the backskip amount is consistent and predictable (although more than my S3).

When this happens, I also notice that fewer frames than usual are being displayed per second during the fast forward and the rate at which they change is inconsistent. As if the Roamio was busy doing something in the background. When I then press PLAY, the Roamio skips backwards sometimes as much as 10-20 seconds instead of the usual maybe 5 seconds. As if the current location had not updated correctly during fast forward.

Last night it happened while I was recording two programs. In other words, the Roamio was not working particularly hard.

Justified - "Over the Mountain" - 1/28/14

Finally Raylan and Boyd share screen time. I like the interaction between the two.

Lots going on. This is an atypical season of sorts with no new big nemesis unless the Crowes from Florida count. Messer a (dead) informant. Dewey trying to kill him was great. Johnny back, working with Hot Rod. Art putting some pieces together in Detroit. Boyd and Carl find the stash of dead bodies. Paxton fooled into thinking Boyd is dead (how long can that last). No Duffy :(

I'm liking this season so far.

Web Video HotList Frozen on Roamio

PLEASE HELP! "Web Video HotList Frozen on Roamio" title says it all. I can get to the app interface, it looks modern and pretty, but once in there none of the RF remote buttons do a single thing, except for the TiVo button which kicks me right out of the app. (IR reception is obstructed)

Customer No-Service

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 01/31/2014 - 08:37
Please note: At this time, it is not possible to use email to cancel TiVo service or to update billing and credit card information. Thank you for your understanding.

What a load of crap, any company that makes it harder to terminate a service than to activate is dishonest. Requiring access to bank accounts via auto debit as the only payment option is dishonest also, all valid companies offer the manual payment option. I have used chat in the past to deactivate 2 old Pioneer Tivo's and had no trouble at all doing it. It appears that to hang on to customers including the hearing impaired like myself they have made it nearly impossible to cancel anything. I am left with placing a block on further debits in order to get someone's attention. I returned a new HD box to a seller due to being defective and now can't remove it from my devices list. Now to have the chat escalated to a supervisor required the use of a telephone so obviously the hearing impaired are being targeted directly.
I already reported Tivo to the BBB and will be reporting them to every organization for the disabled I can locate on line. I have the entire transcript of the chat discussion if anyone would care to read it.

Trading a Series 3 for a Premiere?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 01/31/2014 - 07:20
I am trying to sell a fully working lifetime Series 3 (TCD648250B) on Craigslist for about $160. I have someone interested. They said they have a Premiere with a dead hard drive. Right now, I am thinking I should just take the money (& probably will), but I then later thought maybe I would look into other options.

Mainly, seeing if they wanted to possibly make a trade of some kind. That is if the Premiere they have has lifetime or not. I have a spare 1.5TB hard drive at home that is fully working and was thinking I could possibly throw it in this Premiere. I would maybe even consider trading for the non-working Premiere (if its lifetimed) for a discounted price on this lifetime Series 3.

I have upgraded or repaired Series 3s on my own with WinMFS, but haven't done it on a Premiere yet. Is it possible? If so, how hard/easy is it?

Again, just looking at all my options

Getting new Roamio, Plan confusion/advice?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 01/31/2014 - 05:33
So, I currently have an S2 with the annual $130, and a 2-Tuner Premiere MSD-lifetimed.
I have been thinking about getting a Roamio, but my options are thus:
Put the Roamio under the old $130 plan. It is my original full-priced plan.
Or Lifetime the Roamio for $400 with the MSD.
The way I read the terms though, if I lifetime the Roamio, and don't renew my S2's sub, I'll no longer have something that makes me eligible for MSD in the future? Even though I'll have two active lifetimed Tivos...?
Do you guys think think the $130 annual plan is a good enough deal, to keep it, and keep my MSD eligibility? I don't really plan to upgrade to a new tivo anytime soon, until the Premiere dies, and then i'd probably get a mini.
I'm currently going to get a Roamio Basic and lifetime it...since i've had decent mileage out of my two Tivo units...

On a sidenote, if I'm not going to be streaming (android user), and I've never been bothered by my 2-tuner limit, there's no reason to get a plus right? I'm perfectly comfortable dropping in a bigger HDD.

Tivo Advisory Panel codes

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 01/30/2014 - 21:43
Hey all. Just wondering if there were any Tivo Advisory panel members who received the recent special pricing code and aren't planning to use it. I would be very appreciative if you might pass it along to me.

Thank you.

Anyone willing to part with an Advisory panel code they aren't using

Hey all. I was just wondering if any Premiere owners received the Tivo Advisory Panel e-mail code that they are willing to part with. I would be greatly appreciative.

Tivo and Samsung Soundbar

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 01/30/2014 - 21:39
I received a Samsung Sound bar as a gift. The sound bar is connected to the tv by an optical cable. I tried setting this up using the learning feature of the Glo remote. I received the four blinks indicating it was successful, however the tivo remote will not power on the Sound bar nor control the volume.

I have researched past threads but come away somewhat confused.

My question is, am I stuck with two remotes? I'm not married to this sound bar so is there a recommendation of one that works more seamlessly?

Thanks
