2 remotes - 1 tivo ???

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/13/2014 - 13:48
I have a premier TiVo in the closet so it has no line of sight. it is connected to 2 TVs in two different rooms. what I want is one remote in each room for each TV. I'm currently using one slide ver.1 remote for both rooms. I have a friend who is upgrading his Romeo remote to the slide version 2 remote. if he gives me his basic Romeo remote with the new dongle that comes with his slide remote, will I be able to use the basic roamio remote for my second room In coconjunction with my Bluetooth slide in my first room? If not, anybody know if I can get a second original bluetooth slide remote - so that I'd be using 2 Bluetooth slide remotes at the same time?

Backdoor code for time and elapsed time

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/13/2014 - 12:45
I was pretty amazed to discover that not only does the elapsed time for a TiVo recording show, the elapsed time for a playing DVD also shows. I am confounded about how this can work as the DVD player is completely separate with its own connection to the TV. Am I going crazy?

Slinbox with Slow connection at one end?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/13/2014 - 11:05
Not really familiar with how slingbox works...

I saw this refurbished Slingbox Solo deal for $49:


Here are my issues:

My second TiVo Premiere is in an area which does not offer the Denver local channels in HD...either on cable or OTA.

The free WiFi in this home is very slow, maybe about 1.5 mbps if I am lucky.

Realistically, could I watch recorded (HD) shows from my main TiVo in Denver (smoking fast Internet connection) on my "in-the-middle of nowhere" TiVo that connects to free wifi via a very slow Internet?

I think its the hard drive

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/13/2014 - 09:44
I have a lifetime series 3 (TCD652160) that seems to be giving me problems and is in a reboot loop. It basically gets past the "Welcome, Powering Up" screen and proceeds to the "Almost there...". I then reboots.

From reading these forums, this seems like an indication that there is a problem with its hard drive, correct? I will open it up and take a look at the power supply as well, but I actually also have another identical series 3 that is fully working, but not subscribed to and could cannibalize/use it for parts (hard drive or power supply).

Seeing as a lot of S3s are dying though, I am debating several options (in poll).

Sherlock Season 3--Avoid all news!

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/13/2014 - 09:22
For those of you who are watching via American television, Sherlock Season 3 has aired in Britain, and there is a fairly major development that will probably be much talked about. So between now and Episode 3, you should probably avoid all press coverage or message board discussions of the show unless you are absolutely sure it will contain no spoilers.

Another Moca question - using Mini and Roku

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/13/2014 - 08:05
I have been using Moca for several years (and love it), so I should probably know the answer to this, but what is the best way to set up my Tivo Mini and Roku on my network? Right now I have a splitter that sends ones signal to my Mini (to use its internal Moca adapter) and the second signal goes to a Netgear Moca adapter with ethernet connected to the Roku. This works, but it doesn't seem the most efficient to me and I was wondering if there was a way to eliminate the splitter - maybe by connecting the Roku directly to the Mini via the ethernet cable? Or should I chain them via coax cable (first to mini then to Netgear adapter)?

Thanks in advance.

Beats Music Launches January 21st (With Sonos)

Zatz Not Funny! - Mon, 01/13/2014 - 07:33

As the story goes, Beats acquired the music streaming service MOG in 2012… and 18 months later, we’re days away from the launch of Beats Music — based on MOG, with custom interface, a few clever new additions, and day 1 availability on Sonos. Of course, the headphone company is banking on their brand to [...]

Scheduling Online

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 01/13/2014 - 00:20
A few days ago I scheduled several season passes online for my Tivo Premier which I just got on 12/25/13. Now I can't find the list so I can modify it. If I go to "my shows" I see them all but can't modify them. When I go to the "Season Pass Manager" online, all I see is a box that has my particular Tivo listed but that's it. There is no drop down box or any list of my shows. I need to know exactly how to get there again.

It's probably something simple I am overlooking, I hope. :)

Thanks so much.

On Screen Half Guide?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 01/12/2014 - 22:28
When changing the HDMI inputs on the TV,
upon returning to the Tivo, this half screen guide pops up.

What I can't find, however, is a way to re-create purposefully.

Is this just a glitch, or is there a menu command/setting I'm unaware of?

Signal issue on Premiere but not on TiVoHD

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 01/12/2014 - 17:58
I have a strange issue that has nagged me for a while. I have a TiVoHD upstairs in my den and a TiVo Premiere down in my media room. Both use an OTA antenna that is in my attic. I do not use cable or satellite at all. On occasion I get significant signal issues (choppy, stuttering, pixelated playback) on my TiVo Premiere but NOT ON MY TiVoHD. Case in point, tonight I was trying to watch football on CBS downstairs and it was unwatchable, but when I checked the channel upstairs it was totally fine, no playback issues at all. I guess I want to know if the Premieres are known to be more sensitive to signal issues than the HD. Or do I have a bad Premiere or something like that.

Hulu Desktop Support Comes To An End January 31st

Zatz Not Funny! - Sun, 01/12/2014 - 17:32

Several months ago Hulu quietly pulled their Desktop software from download to barely a ripple in the blogosphere – which I found somewhat surprising giving the company’s various machinations as they decide what they want to be when they grow up and who controls the purse strings. Well, Hulu has now gone ahead and made [...]

Mini Power off Incistencies

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 01/12/2014 - 17:01
I've got 2 Roamio Basic (OTA only) and 2 Mini (one mini linked to each Roamio) and I'm running into a weird inconstant behavior between the 2 Mini's that I can't seem to find any way to deal with it.

- On the master bedroom Mini, when I hit the power button on the TiVo remote, the TV powers on and the Mini is immediately ready for access.
- On the guest bedroom Mini, when I hit the power button on the TiVo remote, the TV powers on and the Mini starts a new cold boot cycle like it was just plugged into power. When watching TV here, everything works just fine with no issues at all. However if I hit the power button to turn things off, and then immediately power it back on again the TiVo Mini is in a cold boot cycle.

For some reason I cannot seem to identify they are acting differently and it's driving me crazy.

Is there a setting somewhere that I've missed that is causing the behavior on these 2 Minis to be different? It's really annoying to have to wait 2-3 minutes for the Guest Room TV to be ready for use, especially when it's clearly not necessary since the master one is immediately available.

HME server in C++?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 01/12/2014 - 15:04
Has anyone ever done an TTG server in C/C++? I know there was JavaHMO, and pytiVo is python, but I can't remember ever seeing anything written in C/C++ that could serve a TiVo. (Well except TiVo Desktop which is Borland C++)

I have an idea for an app, but it would require basic TTG features. I might also want to add an HME interface to it, but that's not required. Just basic TTG to/from PC.

Has anyone ever done a TTG implementation in C/C++ that I can reference?

IFC "The Spoils of Babylon" The Foundling ep1

Caught the 1st episode of this IFC mini series (I Guess 6 30 minute episodes)

Created by SNL writers. Cast includes Toby McGuire, Tim Robbins, Kristin Wiig, Haley Joel Osment Will Ferrell.

A satire of the 70-80's melodramas.

I chuckled a few times...
