Getting back after selecting Tivo

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 11/10/2013 - 10:54
Hi all-

We have had our new Tivo Roamio for over 2 weeks now and loving it! I don't know how we lived before it. Just a quick question....when you are watching a show from My Shows and you go back to my shows to browse how do I get back to the show I was watching without going back to it and hitting resume. When I click Live TV it takes me to a live show on TV. TIA

iPad Network, Moca weirdness, need some help

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 11/10/2013 - 09:24
my problem: iPad cannot connect to Tivo boxes. sometimes it sees them on the network and i can almost get them talking to each other but it mostly fails.

my setup: Motorola 6782ac wireless modem with Moca. i have a Romio Pro and Premier XL4 both connected to the network via Moca. Tivo's are getting very good connections via Moca.

iPads are connected to the network via wireless. i have enabled remote control via network on both tivo boxes.

everything was working properly before i enabled the Moca network. i formerly had only a wireless network. i recently upgraded to this new Moca & wireless setup.

things i have already tried. deleting the tivo app on the iPad, rebooting and reinstalled the app. reboot the Tivo boxes. double checked the network remote setting.

consistant problem is the iPad cannot see the tivo boxes on the network, or it sees the boxes and will not accept the media access key.

i need some input, all input is greatly appreciated.

Roamio on Xfinity?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/09/2013 - 23:18
Question: has anyone used the six-tuner version of the Roamio on Comcast's Xfinity digital cable service successfully? And can I keep the CableCARD now used on my TiVo HD XL DVR?

Roamio scrambled my season passes

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/09/2013 - 19:47
I purchased a Roamio to replace my Premiere. To transfer the 140 season passes on my Premiere over to the Roamio, I used kmttg1p0i (which worked great, by the way!) I saved my Premiere season passes to a file, then applied that file to the Roamio. Once they were copied over, I pruned the season passes on the Roamio down to 104 season passes. So far, everything was going great.

At this point, I noticed that some of our kid's filler shows (Sesame Street, Superwhy, etc.) should probably be moved to the bottom. In the season pass manager, I moved three shows in the usual way (go to show, right-arrow, move to new position, left-arrow). On the fourth show, I accidentally right-arrowed again when the show was already selected to be moved. This brought up a "Still Updating" dialog, then it took me to a detailed information page for that show. When I left-arrowed to exit that page and get back to the season pass list, I found that my season pass list was scrambled!

At this point, I used kmttg to save the newly scrambled season passes to a file. Using some data processing, I was able to compare the two files and see how the entries in the scrambled file were positioned in the original file (factoring out the 36 season passes first). Here are the results:

87 You can see that the top and bottom halves of the list seem to have been roughly swapped, rather than the list being truly randomly scrambled. I'm not sure why this happened, and I can't reproduce it. I thought perhaps something about the kmttg transfer might have caused this, so I even deleted all season passes from the Roamio and repeated the transfer of all season passes from the Premiere to the Roamio with kmttg, but that didn't reproduce it.

This is just a heads-up to keep an eye on your season pass order when you edit them, just to be safe...

Roamio Pro locking up

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/09/2013 - 18:23
I received my Roamio Pro on October 31st and it was working fine up until 2 days ago. The last 2 days in a row when I turned my TV on around 5pm the TiVo video was frozen and the front panel green/yellow button would not work. I had to unplug and replug the TiVo in to get it back and things where fine until the next day and same thing again.

The only thing that changed was I received a 2nd remote, I leave one near my bed and one near my couch. When I received the 2nd remote it worked just like the first in RF mode. Only difference I notice is when I push the remote finder button on the TiVo only the original remote makes the sounds. Both remotes are working in RF though.

Does anyone know if this could be causing the lockup? I took the batteries out of the new remote and am going to see if it is locked up again tomorrow. Not sure what else could be causing it.

My cat always sleeps on top of it but he always slept on the Premiere and that was never an issue. Plus it was fine for a whole week until I got a 2nd remote.

Anyone else have anything like this happen?

Close Caption

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/09/2013 - 14:27
A question for one of the TiVo people that look through the forum:

I see the way to toggle (Info, then down to CC, then Select) - but is there a way to fix the location of CC to the second position in the list? Currently it floats, sometimes it's 2nd, sometimes 3rd, depending on whether you're watching live tv or a recording. If it's always in the second position, I could put a sequence in my Harmony remote (Info-Dn-Select-Info) to toggle Closed Caption and make it much easier to use.

Or is there some other way to toggle CC?

The Vampire Diaries Season 5

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/09/2013 - 12:09
I am really enjoying this season. I was about ready to ditch the SP, but I'm glad now that I didn't. Starting this thread at Ep 6 "Handle with Care" since there aren't any weekly threads so far this season.

-Katherine as a human is hilarious. Not being able to compel anyone just has to be driving her bats. Though I am curious why she doesn't have someone turn her again? Does taking the cure mean she can never be a vampire again? But seems like there is some kind of bad thing happening for her after Silas took the cure. Kinda felt sorry for her when she didn't get to enjoy her huge breakfast!

-Caroline is still awesome. It was really fun to watch her and Katherine work together against Dr Maxfield. Hopefully she will move on now that Tyler seems to be out of the picture.

-Bonnie is dead, yay! I love the actress but just hate that character. Yeah, I know, they'll bring her back eventually, but until then she and Jeremy haven't been nearly as annoying.

-Stefan with amnesia is a much better character than he has ever been. He's not mooning over Elena, so that's great! And Silas is just so evil! Killed the mayor (Bonnie's Dad) without blinking an eye, whoa!

-Elena and Damon together, I'm not sure if I like this or not. Better than Elena and Stefan, that's for sure, but they just aren't that hot as a couple like they were before they got together. Wonder if the chemistry is off since the actors broke up IRL?

-And I love Tessa. She's got the woman scorned thing going in overdrive. Go Tessa! I loved when she and Stefan were talking about cooking a duck and Tessa said she should try to lure a duck in to the cabin. "I can lure one inside. I got Elena in, how much smarter can a duck be?" rotflmao!

Cannot create a season pass

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/09/2013 - 11:47
On my new Roamio Pro, I have found at least one show hat will not permit a season pass to be created. It works on every other show I have tried. When I pull up "Bering Sea Gold: Under the Ice" in the Guide and I select a future recording, then select "Season Pass & other options," it only allows me to "Record this episode" or "Explore this show." Any other show (as far as i can find) offers additional options of "View other showings" and "Get a Season Pass."

Has anyone else seen this before?

Is my Tivo dead?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/09/2013 - 11:38
It shut off and repowered back on twice by itself. After the second time and it started to come back up it just went to a gray screen and then nothing. I've pulled the plug several times and as it starts to come back up, it shows the Tivo screen for about 5 seconds and then the gray screen.
Is it dead?

And if so... what are the replacement suggestions?
Thanks

Multiple Roamio buit in stream

If I own multiple Roamio built in stream, Is there a way to choose which TiVo i want to connected to in order to watch tv/movies from? If not does it list all the shows on multiple TiVo's at the same time?

What are S3s and TiVO HDs worth w/lifetime subs?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/09/2013 - 10:59
Just upgraded the last 2 of my Series 3 units to a Roamio + Mini. Both have lifetime subs on them, and both are upgraded with newer power supplies and 1TB WD drives with 157 hours HD/1367 SD. One is an S3 and the other is a TiVO HD.

What are they worth if I put them on Craigslist or eBay?

TIA!

Channel list help

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/09/2013 - 09:32
My husband biught me the tivo roamio for my birthday. We have an antenna type of set up with cable. We don't have a cable box. When I scan the channels I get 281 channels found. When I go to the channel list only 12 channels appear. When I try to watch live tv on those channels, nothin happens. The TiVo says "unable to tune into this channel". We normally get about 100 channels when we attach the cable plug/antenna into the tv itself. It doesn't seem to be reading the channels when we go through the TiVo. I have reset the TiVo twice and rescanned the channels multiple times.
Does that mean TiVo will never work for us?
Is there something I am doing wrong in the set up?
Thanks,
Tracey

TiVO transfers

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/09/2013 - 08:41
I installed my new Roamio yesterday. No problem...I kept the Premiere activated til I transferred some programs to the Roamio. Did transfer some...was going to do more overnight, but the Premiere was not displaying on the Roamio's MY SHOWS list. It had been there before. Tried the usual...all was checked correctly on the TiVO account page...rebooted the router...both TiVOs appear on the Android app correctly. This happened many months ago...the 2nd TiVO would occasionally appear and disappear from the MY SHOWS lists. Anyone know how to fix this?
BTW, no cable card problems with the new unit whatsoever, for those concerned. Put the card from my Premiere into the Roamio...I picked up all the cable channels but not the pay. Called the Cable Division (or whatever they call it) at Comcast, and they paired it, said to wait 45 minutes and the channels would populate. They populated in less than 30 seconds.
UPDATE: I just noticed a similar thread below, don't know how to move this there....

Tivo Roamio and Austin Time Warner cable issues

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/09/2013 - 08:08
I have done due diligence and researched all my options for either upgrading my equipment to DirectTV's Genie, considering Dish's Hopper or switching to Roamio plus. Technically and feature-wise I am in the Tivo Roamio plus court.

The only thing really stopping me is the issues I'm reading about the cable card and tuning adapter issues provided by my local Time Warner (Austin). Right now I have 3 DVR's (DirecTV) and dependable equipment/recordings but I really like the idea of no dish and a Roamio with mini's, so it's extremely tempting.
I just don't want to lay out some serious money for equipment and monthly fees and a 2 year commitment if there is real potential for problems.

If you're on the Austin Time Warner system with a Roamio, I'd like to hear your experiences, good and bad with this equipment combination.

Thanks in advance.

Lifetimed crippled 652

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/09/2013 - 04:44
Any interest in a lifetimed 652, original 160GB drive, with 2 OTA tuners that work and one cable tuner that works and one cable tuner that doesn't?

And it's not caused by a bad power supply.

I haven't tested it with cable cards or a TA 'cause we're still on analog cable.

Cable tuner 0 can't seem to lock in on one modulation method to demodulate, so it can't lock in on a channel.

As far as I can tell, that's the only thing wrong with this unit.

And by interest I mean you pay me actual money or trade me something I'd really like to have, not just "I'll pay shipping and take it off your hands for the power supply".
