No surprise, either on winner or America's Favorite. Elissa should be saying thank you Rachel and CBS. Talk about a sure thing.

I do believe Andy is very deserving of winning.

Audio/Video on Premier

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 09/18/2013 - 22:14
There is a slight lag between the audio and video after watching a channel for a few minutes. I am using a HDMI cable from my TIVO to my TV.

Anyone come across this problem and if so how did you fix this?

High SNR & Missing Recordings

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 09/18/2013 - 20:48
Apparently my signal is hot from Comcast. SNR was 43-45 across all the tuners. However, my previous Ceton InfiniTV6 ETH did not report the signal so strong. I replaced the 4-way with an 8-way and the SNR only dropped to 39-41 across all tuners with strength still at 100%.

Why do I care? The picture quality is great and channels seem to tune reasonably fast. But there was a missed recording yesterday evening due to not available. Once I noticed it was missed, I manually tuned the channel and it came up right away. There were no conflicts and overlap protection is on. The only thing I can think of is the high SNR.

Anyone else watch there mpeg2 hd videos on a android tablet? I want to buy a 10 inch 1080p tablet to watch my1080i tivo shows after turned into mpeg2. Anyone know if tegra 3 can do this without stutter? I was considering asus tf700. As i recall mpeg2 doesn't do HW acceleration on android. seems like a hassle to convert to a diff. format to get hw acceleration?

Help! I have a new Roamio and am unable to find a code for my JVC TV. I have tried many many codes and the 0999 search and still am unable to find one. EEK! I'm so frustrated!

Issue with season passes?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 09/18/2013 - 19:04
Posting here since Tivo's site is down and I won't be able to call until later.

I copied my season passses online from a tivo HD. All seemed to copy fine, but my end result is now none of them record on EITHER tivo:

Roamio - has all season passes listed, but is not recording anything other then season passes I setup directly for that unit.

HD - has all season passes, but also is not recording ANY.

Other then manually setting these up, anyone have any ideas?

Broke down and got one of these but it's not working

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 09/18/2013 - 18:21
I finally purchased one of these even though it's really missing functionality still for the price of that lifetime but anyway... I'm having a problem with mine.

It's hooked up to an HD TV using HDMI and I've been having this problem for days now. It's frozen or something every time that I come back to it to watch it. I'll turn on the TV only to find my Mini not displaying. I press the remote buttons but nothing happens with the lights on the box. It just flat out won't show anything. The only way to get it to show up on the TV again is to power cycle the box.

Any suggestions on how to get it working correctly? Did I just get a bad box or something?

TiVo Dropping other Tivo and pyTivo Shares

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 09/18/2013 - 17:33
Here's my problem: I have 2 TiVo Premieres and 3 pyTivo shares on my home network. TiVo 1 always sees TiVo 2 and the pyTivo shares, so no problem there.

TiVo 2 can see TiVo 1 and the pyTivo shares after I reboot TiVo 2 or “renew” my IP address (From TiVo Central, go to > Settings & messages > Settings > Network & Phone > Change network settings > Get automatically from DHCP server (typical)).

After some sequence of events or period of time, TiVo 1 and the pyTivo shares disappear until I reboot or renew my IP address again.

Both TiVos are running v20.3.1-01-2-746.

TiVo 1 is connected to my network through a MoCA adapter and has a reserved DHCP address.

TiVo 2 is connected to my network through a hardwire Ethernet connection to a D-Link DIR-825 router configured as a switch (no DHCP), using another router as THE router, ASUS RT-AC66U and has a reserved DHCP address.

Since TiVo 1 doesn’t have any problems, I’m guessing the issue lies with either my router/switch or the main router.

Can anyone suggest some troubleshooting steps?

Thanks in advance!

Problem tuning channels

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 09/18/2013 - 16:07
I've had my Roamio Plus for a few days (almost a week) and I am seeing an issue when changing channels. A lot of times the channel won't tune at all. No error comes up, just a blank screen. A small percentage of the time, if I channel up or down, then back, the show will tune. Most of the time, nothing.

I was just watching a movie on Cinemax, changed channel, then back,and poof, black screen.

This happens on standard cable channels, as well as premiums. I don't think I've seen it on "free" channels, so this must be to do with the cable card.

Would you guys/gals agree? Who should I yell at first, Tivo, or Time Warner?:D

Tivo to Sony home theater to Samsung HD TV

Hi All,

I have recently got a new Sony home theatre. I hooked up my TIVO box to home theatre via hdmi and then from sony box to hdtv via hdmi. everything works fine apart from the fact that every 10 - 15 mins i hear a loud noise from all speakers and the sound is dropped. until i restart sony , it does not get fixed. any one know what could be wrong?

Weird Roamio Pro problem

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 09/18/2013 - 15:01
I got a Roamio Pro and started the awful process of manually transferring all of my shows from my Tivo HD to the new box.

There is one recording that had an issue. Whenever I tried to transfer that program the Roamio would reboot. Rebooting would clear the list of tee'd up programs to transfer, but everytime I got to one program it would cause the unit to reboot.

My worry is this is a brand new box. I haven't seen any issues with it other than this one, but I don't want to keep a box that is potentially faulty. What could cause this problem?

//It is ridiculous that there isn't a way to transfer all recordings automatically.

String of Missed Recordings Last Night

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 09/18/2013 - 13:52
I had a string of recordings all messed up last night. I had set Dads to record, and my wife had set New Girl and Mindy Project also. In between, I saw that show Brooklyn 99 was on so I started that recording too. So that's 4 30 minutes shows back to back, same channel. It was only later, during New Girl, that I realized all the recordings thus far were 2 minutes long, even though they otherwise appeared to be ok. The red circle was always up to indicate it was recording. If you played the recording, the timer bar appeared to have the whole show, but it also said 2 minutes long and yes in fact would only play for 2 minutes. I ignored it for the moment, but when I saw it happening again on Mindy Project, I finally stopped and restarted the recording, and then it recorded normally, and later Sons of Anarchy recorded ok too. Checked the most recent recordings before those shows and they were fine.

What the hell happened? Anyone seen this? I've yet to see a tivo screw up this bad.

Favorite Channels feature from the App to the TiVo box

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 09/18/2013 - 13:17
I asked how to do this in another thread, but it doesn't seem to be currently possible, so I thought I'd request it here. (http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb...d.php?t=508714)

Basically, I love that on my TiVo iPhone app, I can go to What to Watch -> Favorite Channels and see what's currently airing on my favorite channels. It's a wonderful at-a-glance way to see what's on the channels I like to check. It's my favorite implementation of a Favorite Channels feature that I've ever seen.

The problem is that when I go to What to Watch on the TiVo itself, there is no Favorite Channels section. It's "Popular Shows", "Movies", "Sports", and "Kids". That's fine, but it's not very customizable.

Anyway, this is a wonderful feature on the App. Please port it to the main TiVo interface as well. It would dramatically improve my TiVo experience.

Shows that started off weak and then quickly went uphill

The first show that comes to mind for me is Parks and Recreations. When it started it was pretty hard to watch and enjoy. Every season since they have make tweaks and cast changes. Now it has gelled into one of the funniest shows on TV.

Big Brother: A reality show, a game show, a soap opera… It has the best of so many worlds and it’s on three nights a week. This year we saw a couple of interesting twists that were new to the Big Brother game; America’s MVP and a jury member “Got to steppin’” back into the house. America’s MVP got a bit more interesting once America actually got to pick the third nominee to be put up on the block and the jury member who moved back is still in the Continue Reading

Verizon’s TV Talk Chills Cable Relations

Zatz Not Funny! - Wed, 09/18/2013 - 11:24

Well this could put a damper on Verizon’s currently cozy relationship with the cable industry. According to the New York Post, Verizon – like so many companies – is in talks with “major programmers” about creating a national, Internet-based pay-TV service. The Post says that while Verizon has pursued access to particular shows in the [...]

Premiere Lifetime for $99

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 09/18/2013 - 11:22
When I bought my Premiere Tivo allowed me to pay $99 to convert my HD to lifetime. Has anyone had this offer to a Premiere if they purchase a Roamio? Probably wishful thinking but it would be enough for me to make the purchase.

So Calder isn't working for Henry, yay! Glad they finally got to the scene where he shot Annie that we saw several weeks ago.

And we got to see Eyal, even if only for a short time. I love him!

I used to hate Arthur and Joan, but have really enjoyed their storyline this season.

I'm bummed that it will be another month until the next new ep.

I've never seen a single episode of either series. I don't have time to watch them both right now. Which one should I choose?
