At this point... OOH Streaming is Pretty Much UNUSABLE

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 11/21/2013 - 20:35
Was hoping the latest iOS update fixed some of the "issues" that they said it did, but I'm having the same problem I've had in the past. At times, my Streaming device on my Roamio Plus just stops working and can't be found. This happens when I'm away from home in another city where I can do really anything after this happens. It was streaming fine for a bit, then stopped and I tried to reload the stream. Now it's stuck with "Can't find streaming device."

... Work in Progress I guess :)

Support for 2 tuner units?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 11/21/2013 - 20:24
I have 2 2-tuner premiere units. Now that dynamic tuning is released, will the 2-tuner units support it? I don't care that there would only be 1 tuner left on the premier, I have an outdoor porch that I would love to have a mini on. Right now it has an old series 2 that is single tuner sd.

Tivo HD (no lifetime)

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 11/21/2013 - 19:30
I know this isn't exactly on-topic "ebay", but I was going to sell my TivoHD on ebay but don't want to bother.

It's an unmodified TivoHD, without lifetime - service fee required.

Anyone interested? Just cover the shipping costs.

Tivo Slide Pro - RF Problems?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 11/21/2013 - 17:33
Just wondering if anyone who has a new Slide Pro remote is having the same RF issues lots of people, including me, are having with the standard Roamio RF remote. Does it ever want to click out of RF and show red IR?

Put a Character LCD on the front again

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 11/21/2013 - 17:26
Instead of just lights, put a character LCD on the front like the DVD series 2 units or the Tivo Series 3 units. Also put buttons on the front to control the tivo, built in wifi, clear qam guide, integrated blu ray, integrated convert to iphone so you can put your shows on your iphone.

Premier to Roamio - Is HD menus quicker?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 11/21/2013 - 14:38
All,

I have had a Premier for a year or so, and it is a good TiVo, step up from the two TiVo HD I also have.

BUT

I do not use the HD menus as the are slow / slugish. I keep the SD menus on so that when I hit list/My Shows, I get the list quick, not a pause......fill in a few suggestions, then show a list.

Has anyone that may feel the same as I do about the Premier, moved from a Premier, to a Roamio and can comment on the 'speed of the HD menu'?

Roamio Pro says 3 tuners in use by Minis, but.....

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 11/21/2013 - 14:33
......those 3 Minis haven't been used since yesterday and the 4 hours have long expired. In fact, 2 of the Minis weren't used yesterday at all. In the past the Minis have always released the tuners.

Or do the Minis release the tuners just when needed?

Tivo Roamio Pro

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 11/21/2013 - 14:15
I’ve been a Tivo customer for eleven years but I am rapidly becoming disenchanted with them. They sold me a Roamio Pro knowing the Charter my cable provider’s cable cards did not support a 6 tuner DVR. After 45 day of lowering signal strength below 100%, reducing the SNR to 36db, 6 Charter visits, the installation of 10 different cable cards, installing a new Roamio Pro unit and many arguments with Charter over firmware upgrades now both Tivo and Charter have told me that there is nothing else that can be done but to turn off 3 of my 6 tuners. Conclusions if you live in Fort Worth, Texas do not waste your money buying a Tivo Roamio.

Media Access Key dropoff

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 11/21/2013 - 13:49
I could not stream one box to the other last night and this am. Unusual since both premieres have been on my account >12mos and both in good standing with full wired ethernet connection.

Called tech support this morning and one of the boxes had their media access key "dropped out." When I attempted to pull the media access key off the TIVO menu, messages and settings, the media access key was not an option. Thats when the troubleshooting technician figured it out. This was after about 20 mins on the line and box restarts.

Media access key signal was resent via tech and after a network connection to tivo streaming is working again.

Just fyi

Sat 1 no signal

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 11/21/2013 - 12:26
Signal on sat 2 - 95%
Started about 8am Denver
We have a little snow here but nothing on the dish, lnb etc.
:confused:
I'm not sure what is happening maybe it's a different problem
When I try to toggle between channels the second will say seaching for sat 1
but that won't play any of the channels
if I toggle back then I can scroll through all channels
Has my DVR had it?
----------
Rebooted and it was weird. It was on favorites but all previous favorites not in list so thought the channels weren't working. With some work it is back to normal. Reprogramed some favorites and now I can toggle between channels... and NO more searching for sat 1.

Problem transfering videos to TiVo Premiere

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 11/21/2013 - 12:05
I have been having problems lately transferring videos from my computer via the TiVo Desktop Plus application to my Tivo Premiere. I have a wired connection to my Tivo from my router. It will act like it is transferring a video, the blue light will be on and the video will show up on my Tivo, however, at some point the transfer will stop and video will disappear. I am using the Share music, photos & video part of the application to share specific folders. I have it set up to automatically transfer All. I would try to manually transfer the videos, but for some other reason the computer I use does not show up on the Now Playing on COMPUTER NAME. At first I was thinking it had something to do with my internet being slow, but that shouldn't effect a wired connection, right? And even so, that issue has been resolved.

Another issue I have noticed is that I have to reboot my computer for it to even start the process of transferring videos.

I am running Windows 8, my Tivo software version is 20.3.7.1a-01-2-746, I have an external HD attached to the Tivo, I am at 28% full.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Transferring HD programs to Roamio

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 11/21/2013 - 12:00
I'm about to buy a Roamio box to replace one of my HD boxes. I have many hours of programs on my HD boxes that I'd like to transfer to the new Roamio.

Can I just transfer them to my PC, then transfer them to the Roamio once it's set up?

Also, will I be able to transfer programs between the Roamio and an existing HD XL?

Thanks!

HBO Go iOS update supports chromecast

Just saw the HBO app update supports chromecast. Can anyone check if it can cast to the Roamio and Mini without any issues?

WD Red hard drive noise level?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 11/21/2013 - 11:21
For those that upgraded their Roamio with a Western Digital Red 2 or 3TB HD, how noisy is your drive?

Last year I replaced my iMac's native drive with a 1TB WD Black and regretted it ever since. I originally bought the WD Green but read green wasn't suitable for every day use and was more for backup drives, etc. The black is a nonstop noise machine that makes an incessant and very loud crunching sound. Moreover, it's very slow for a drive that's supposed to be top of the line.

Right now WD Reds seem to be on sale and I'm thinking of pulling the trigger, but I don't want to save a few bucks if that means a terribly noisy drive or having performance issues.

Arrow - "State vs Queen" - 11/20/2013

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 11/21/2013 - 10:32
No Arrow threads in a while. I've really been enjoying the show.

Thoughts in no particular order....

The trial did not go as expected, and the return of Merlin at the end probably shouldn't have been a surprise, but was.

Have I ever mentioned how much I love Teryl Rothery? She played my favorite character on Stargate SG-1. And now, here she is, Jean Loring. Am I dense or did they not reveal her full name until this week? I had missed it if they had. I wonder if her boyfriend Ray Palmer will show up.

I saw that they've decided NOT to do a backdoor pilot for "The Flash", but to make it a standalone pilot. Surprises me this late in the game, but the indications are that it did well enough they feel they can go ahead. We still get two episodes with Barry Allen guest-starring.

Speedy beating up on Roy Harper. There's a sentence I never expected to utter.

The black gunk on Slades face is, I suppose, to foreshadow the one-sided mask, though doing so really seems odd as we've already seen the mask and know he wore it long before he loses his eye. He looks strange with a perfectly straight line of blackness down his face.

Didn't expect Ollie to spend so much time with Sarah. Really thought that was going to be more fleeting. He doesn't know how she learned to fight, so we know they don't hang out together long enough for her to be taugh.

"An Adventure in Space and Time" - Doctor Who

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 11/21/2013 - 09:59
The premiere of the Doctor Who docudrama, "An Adventure in Space and Time," airs this Friday night (November 22, 2013) on BBCAmerica. If you're a fan, you'll definitely want to see this made-for-TV movie about the genesis and early years of Doctor Who.

But since "Doctor Who" is not in the title, Season Passes -- and, depending on your settings, possibly even Wishlists -- won't automatically pick it up.

You used to get a 6 digit code to activate your tivo on your computer. now you have to type out your login info with the remote. I'm lazy enough that I don't want to do that and would rather fork out for a roku. Tivo, Fix your APP!

David Blaine: Real or Magic - 11/19/13

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 11/21/2013 - 08:39
Anyone else watch this? It was really mind boggling some of the stuff he did. Especially the ice-picker through his hand and bicep.

What was even more amazing was the A-List stars that participated. Harrison Ford (who was pretty funny and freaked out), Wil Smith and his family, Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, Woody Allen, Ricky Gervais, etc.

Also was impressed by how he swallowed a piece of a dollar bill and magically "put it back" from within his mouth!!

When do we get free roamio

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 11/21/2013 - 08:37
You have run the 0 Down promotion on and off for years since the premiere was introduced. Its great for people like me who could not afford to pay up front for a DVR, but fitting in an extra $20 x 2 per month is reasonably manageable. When are you going to do this for the roamio? I think it'd be great to have a roamio but theres no way I can afford one at your prices, let alone two, or getting one and adding a mini. I have loved and owned every single one of your products since the series 1. However, the last five years have been very low income for me and I would love to see the roamio on a 0 down or 99 down promotion.
