Am I correct in assuming that the backlit remote will work fine with Roamio plus and mini's

Justified "Shot All to Hell" OAD 2014-02-04 **spoilers**

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 02/05/2014 - 11:49
Holy! Wowwie, wow, wow!

So much action in so little time. You know a show is good when you want it to run another 2 hours.

What was the body count for this episode? 5 {Edit. Forgot one.} 6? (Curley Canuck, Paxton, Deputy Sheriff, Elias, the Haitian, ...and Hot Rod Dunham by Cousin Jimmy (offscreen))

Once again, the writers have to have a seance going with the spirit of Dutch Leonard.

Art is a badass. Raylan: "See? I taught you something."

"That is one hella gun!" "I noticed."

I looked. Alan Tudyk's name is not in the credits?

"Mikey here is your hairdresser." "Step outside. I'll give you a clip."

"Picker," John Kapelos is really Greek.

We got the Boyd "susprize!" for Paxton. I think the blood spatter would show that he wasn't entirely in the bed.

I just knew that when Ava was going to walk tomorrow morning that something would happen. I figured she'd be killed. So who is behind Eva getting set up?

"Art, the agent at the airport wasn't Barkley." I think Art knew. Raylan, you couldda kept that to yourself.

TiVo App Streaming freeze?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 02/05/2014 - 09:56
Anyone else having issues with streaming using the TiVo app on the iPad freezing mid-stream?

I've got a Comcast cable connection both at home and at work. Sometimes at lunch I'll fire up a stream. I can watch for maybe 10 minutes before the stream will just freeze. No amount of backing up, fowarding, etc.. will bring it back. I can exit the stream and start watching again immediately from where it picked up.

Bandwidth isn't an issue, nor is connection stability. The picture is the highest
quality, and it never stutters or loses quality.

Any ideas?

MOCA vs Ethernet? Advice needed

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 02/05/2014 - 08:51
I'm in the process of transitioning from my FIOS DVR to a Romaio Plus with two minis. Everything works so far, but when I get rid of the FIOS equipment, I'd like to know my setup is optimal.

I have a FIOS provided router with MOCA baked in. Right now, my Roamio has coax and ethernet going into it. One Mini has coax (MOCA), the other is on ethernet.

Is there any advantage to putting the Mini's on ethernet only or MOCA only? If I I have the Roamio on just the coax, will it get data from the FIOS router?

Does using the whole home DVR Roamio/Mini setup put a lot of pressure on my home network?

I've got Cat 5e almost everywhere, but I'd prefer to not overload the network if using MOCA will keep the Tivos on their own separate network.

Thank you.


Cmos battery?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 02/05/2014 - 08:01
The premiere is getting to be I think 5+ years old. I know the unit uses a cmos battery that is easily replaceable, however when the battery falls and is replaced what gets lost?

Thanks, TL

Supernatural - "The Purge" - 2/4/14

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 02/05/2014 - 07:03
Well let's go right to the painful part. That conversation with Sam and Dean at the end.......:( And Sam I don't believe you. You've proven in the past that you would go just as far as Dean would. I honestly think that's where they are going with this. I think it's somewhere toward the finale, maybe even the finale, Sam is going to be forced to let Dean die or go to drastic measures to save him. And we know which he'll pick. Why must they do this every season? My heart can't take it.

Okay sorry next I have to be superficial. Spoiler: How can Jensen make a hair net look that good? And I don't know which was hotter: Sam in the sleeveless shirt showing off his shoulders or the track suit. I think the track suit......because.........

I enjoyed the rest for what it was. A new monster and a bunch of awesome Dean faces. I was surprised people didn't know cupping was a real thing? I've never done it but I hear it's pretty cool. I thought the tongue could have been done better but I know their budget is limited.

Time Warner Cable APP

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 02/05/2014 - 05:18
What would it take to get the TWC APP on the Roamio's and Mini? The app now lets you watch on-demand options as well as live TV. So if your using all 4 or 6 tuners you would then have a virtual tuner to watch something else live or an on-demand option.

Any reason to put Tivos on a VLAN

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 02/05/2014 - 00:22
Title says it all.
1 Premiere XL4
1 Premiere (2 tuners)
2 Minis, soon to be 3 when Charter goes all digital
2 TP-Link TL-SG3216 Managed Switches
Soon to add 24 port version

All Tivos on separate cables going to switches. You should see all the outlets I have behind my main TV (6) :confused::confused:

stupid cablecard tricks

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 02/05/2014 - 00:02
So, a couple weeks ago I got a Roamio Pro to replace my XL4. I popped the CC out of the XL4, put it in the Roamio. I chatted FiOS support to re-pair it (which is only required for premiums) and 10 minutes later all was fine.

Tonight, I tried to watch HBO and "not authorized"... no premiums working... 30 min with support plus a reboot and hard powercycle and it's still not working.

Inbetween the two events I had briefly stuck the CC back into the XL4, did that screw it up?

Argh - I only did that because I was trying to do a factory reset on the XL4, but that was completely impossible because it kept bringing up the "no cablecard" screen when I was trying to use the menus.

HIMYM - Sunrise - OAD 2/3/14

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 02/04/2014 - 23:01
No thread? Back to an episode without the mother, which is disappointing. Overall so-so. The main good thing was the part where Ted finally lets Robin go (although the floating away was dumb). Interesting last week the mother let go of her previous love, and this week Ted did, so they are now both "ready" to meet each other. While the Barney stuff was ok, I did kind of like the end with him giving his final advice to the two guys, esp the part about it's not legendary unless your friends are there.

And while I didn't much care for the Marshall/Lilly stuff, I am curious how they did the "young" Lilly scenes.

Recordings labeled "Manual: xxxx"

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 02/04/2014 - 22:27
Our Roamio Plus regularly records programs which are shown as "Manual:" followed by a title. Currently recording is "Manual: Dorian Grey". We have no ideas what causes this. Is this a new TiVo feature to create "super" suggestions?

Easy Aspect Ratio control

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 02/04/2014 - 22:06
The majority of the content I watch both OTA and via Netflix is 16:9. Occasionally though I want to watch some 4:3 content. Particularly with Netflix, how do I easily switch to 4:3 mode, then switch back to 16:9 when done watching?

Olympics Collection

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 02/04/2014 - 22:06

I searched and didn't find any other threads so I hope this hasn't been talked about. Anyway, my wife wants to watch certain parts of the Olympics so I went the Browse TV, Olympics, Figure Skating and told it to record this collection.

It thinks about it for a bit, adds it to my season pass and then says there are no upcoming episodes. But, if I go look in the collection, it clearly shows episodes upcoming.

I also tried just the Women's section underneath figuring skating and still no luck...

Anyone else having this issue? A bit frustrating to have what appeared to be the perfect way to record pieces of them for her but not have them showing up.

Does the Roamio Pro have two network interfaces?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 02/04/2014 - 20:44
Obviously I know the Roamio Pro has the functionality of a TiVo Stream inside it. But is this done by essentially embedding a Stream in the Pro?

I ask because I set up my DHCP server to give my Pro (connected via MoCA) an address of (DHCP server will always give it that address because on my DHCP server I established a mapping between the Pro's MAC and that IP address).

However, when I set up the iOS Stream app and looked at its settings, the app was reporting the Pro was at (which is in the address range I've configured my DHCP server to give to devices with unmapped MAC addresses). And the DHCP lease file my server generates shows that the device it gave the .204 address to is the Pro.

I went to the Pro's network settings page and it shows the address. I then pinged the .130 address and it was live. And I pinged the .204 address and it also is live.

So is that second address the Pro is using in fact an essentially embedded Stream?

Is out of home streaming a scam?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 02/04/2014 - 19:59
Every program in "My Shows" on my Roamio Plus, when I attempt to stream to my iPad it has a message that the copyright holder restricts streaming out of home. I think it's a sales scam. I was looking forward to watching a hockey game this evening. I think I got duped. I just spent $1,000 for Roamio, Mini TV, both with lifetime. I went through every setting I could find to ensure it was setup for out of home streaming. I love my Tivo but I feel this out of home streaming thing is dishonest and I'm disappointed. I honestly don't think it's necessary to make claims for features that are unusable in order to make money. Lack of integrity.

Don't believe TiVo CSRs…

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 02/04/2014 - 19:36
I specifically asked before exchanging my defective Roamio through Amazon if there would be any problem transferring my lifetime to my replacement box, and the CSR and tech both said "no."

Tonight a CSR told me "Because you have a new retail unit rather than replacing it through us, a supervisor will need to examine your case to see if we can do it."

Important steps when transferring a hard drive between Roamios

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 02/04/2014 - 19:26
Perhaps other people here know this, but I did a clear and delete all in my old Roamio, then moved it to my new Roamio, but apparently you need to do the clear and delete in the new Roamio.

Until I did this I made it through guided setup, but it was showing the TiVo service ID as all zeros, and it flagged the box as having a hardware issue.

Once I did another clear and delete all in the new Roamio, all was good.

Tivo mini with ooh streaming?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 02/04/2014 - 19:17
Are there any plans to allow streaming to a tv while outside the home? I know the ios devices are limited to vie wining on their own screens - no mirroring. But is tivo working on a solution like using the mini to stream to a tv ooh?
