C133 error

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 09/09/2013 - 14:53
Anyone else get this frequently? I have a strong wireless N network that the Roamio does a great job picking up at high strengths. All other tech picks up the wifi flawlessly as well, including a 360 in the same tv stand. However, for some reason Roamio gives me the C133 daily. All I need to do is the good old router unplug so it isn't a serious issue, but what is going on that causes this? Right before it happens all the search functions and whatnot will become extremely slow as well.

Does anyone know how I can contact them? I have been getting the runaround from tech support and I don't know who to talk to. I tried PM'ing Margaret, but I didn't hear back. Thanks.

HD Recordings Folder

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 09/09/2013 - 14:49
What does this thing do? It feels like a legacy feature that just was never removed. Nothing goes there and I seem to have no ability to send anything there. It just sits empty. I'd love to be able to send everything I record there or to a specific folder that needs to be opened for the sake of clutter removal, but it doesn't seem possible. What function does this folder serve?

Not a matter of "if", but "when"

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 09/09/2013 - 14:23
I have some Series 3 TiVos. One of them (S3 OLED) seems to have some bad caps on the power supply (in a reboot loop) & I am trouble shooting it now. The others are working fine right now, but is it really a matter of not "if" their power supplies will fail and rather more "when" will they fail? :rolleyes:

FCC: Exemption from CableCard Requirement

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 09/09/2013 - 13:30
Does anybody have the citation to the specific criteria for a small cable provider to be exempt from the requirement to provide CableCards. I have found lots of reference to "an exemption" but the size seems to vary widely.

I am also looking for a list of waivers that have been granted to otherwise covered providers.

Many thanks.

Moving a Cable Card to a New DVR

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 09/09/2013 - 12:37
I have an M Cable Card in my Premier DVR. I am thinking about a Romio DVR to replace the Premier. I think my card will fit in the Romio, but will it require activation or pairing? My provider is Comcast/Xfinity.

Thanks for any help, Jim

Installation from helllllll part 2

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 09/09/2013 - 12:24
So, the tech I spoke with at TiVo thought I had a defective Roamio plus. The problem is I didn't get half the channels I was supposed to get, both premium and non-premium. When I was on the phone with the tech, I just tried a few channels and there was no problem. But she said that things didn't look right from her end and that if I had a further problem, she would swap devices via overnight delivery. She gave me a reference number and told me to only speak with her and gave me her hours.

Well, I called yesterday when she was supposed to be there and she wasn't. Today, same thing. So I said bulloney, why do I need her? It should all be documented. As it turned out, it wasn't all documented, but that's neither here nor there.

I spoke with a supervisor who said there are known issues with the new Verizon cable card and the problem I am having is the issue. He said swapping sets would accomplish nothing. And to add to my nightmare, my old TiVo, a Premiere, started acting up yesterday and rebooting like every half hour. Today it's been fine.

My question is that if this is a known issue, why doesn't anyone else on this forum have this problem? I am in an on hold position, waiting for Verizon. I cannot use the Roamio.

Any suggestions? So far, I must have spent about 12 hours plus on this.

TiVo Power Supply Board for Premiere series 4 voltages

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 09/09/2013 - 11:50
i have the series 4 tivo 746 and i was wondering what the voltages that the power supply puts out.

if someone has torn down a tivo series 4 and reverse engineered the power supply.

i know there is 5 and 12 and possibly 3.3 at the hard drive cable but i am not sure what the other voltages are.

if someone has a pinout on the power supply.

i suspect the reason for the symptoms of bad sectors is caused by a power supply on the edge of failure and is starving the system slightly.

i found at http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...3uf_3sec_.html

basically it is a bunch of capacitors paralleled and as long as none of the pins exceed 15 volts i should be able to use these as a power stiffening device sort of like like why there are 1 and 2 f caps used in high power car sound systems.

Transfer from 'Pause Point'. How to change?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 09/09/2013 - 11:19
I can't seem to change this option. When transferring from a Premiere to my Roamio, I get the menu option Transfer -> from pause point.

I can't get the 'from pause point' to change to 'beginning'

11.M update for S3 units breaks Season Passes

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 09/09/2013 - 11:00
Be aware that on both my S3 OLED units, adding a Seasons Pass since the 11.M update yesterday results in nothing showing up in the ToDo list, no shows being marked for recording. I have reported it to tech support, and there are "scattered reports" of the problem.

If you have 11M, verify that Season Passes are working before relying on them.

Audio drop out and no 30 sec skup beep?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 09/09/2013 - 09:22
Not sure of this is TV/HDMI related or Tivo related. The 30-seocnd skip (used sel-play-sel-30-sel code) does not make the tone sound any more... and on some occasions I notice that after changing a channel or skipping, the audio is muted for a few seconds. Never had that problem on this TV with Series 3... although my series 3 was connected with component cable since the HDMI port dies a few years ago. Anyone see these things on their Tivo? Any ideas?

Well, the fact that nobody has started a thread about this episode yet speaks volumes. I'm guessing that like me, most of you couldn't care less at this point who wins the game. What an absolute dud of a season this has turned out to be.

Jinni Lands on Microsoft XBox and Comcast X2

We first heard that Microsoft was licensing Jinni’s video search and discovery technology back in 2011. Now, however, the two companies have made their intentions official. Jinni says it has signed a multi-year agreement to power the recommendation engine on “Xbox video game and entertainment systems.” The news comes less than three months before the scheduled [...]

cablecard confusion?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 09/09/2013 - 07:57
New Tivo subscriber preparing to set up my new Roamio - I just talked to my cable co. about cablecards, they have a regular, digital and HD card. I'd never heard of an HD card before (and of course it's $20/mo.vs. 10 for a digital). Is this just the cable co.'s way of bundling the HD fee or something more sneaky? They are dropping my charge for the HD-DVR and digital tv, so I'm saving $10/mo. even with the HD cablecard.
