Is the Roamio Basic self-upgradeable?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 01/30/2014 - 06:15
I am thinking of getting either a 4-tuner Roamio basic or a Roamio Plus. From my understanding while reading some posts here, I think I saw something that says the Roamio Basic is user-upgradeable. Can basically be easily upgraded by the user by simply replacing the drive yourself and just dropping a fresh new hard drive into the unit. The Roamio basic then does everything needed to properly prepare the drive for full use. Essentially a plug-n-play type procedure. Is this correct and how it works?

If so, I am assuming upgrading or repairing a Roamio Plus/Pro would be a little more involved, correct?

Moca adapter install question

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 01/29/2014 - 22:25
I currently have the wall outlet going to a splitter which then goes to the cable modem for one output and tivo for the other. Does it matter if I put moca before or after that splitter? The Poe filter will go outside the house. My Mini will be in an upstairs bedroom

I have a TivoHD unit in a spare bedroom, and have it paired to Comcast (Xfinity) for cable. I was thinking of adding it to my main viewing room with my Premier XL4, but hooking up a TV antenna to it for some of the local subchannels.

Its been so long since Ive changed anything I have a couple questions:

1: Can I tune cable and antenna at the same time with the TivoHD, or just one or the other like the base Roamio?
2: If I can tune either antenna or cable, will rerunning guided setup to add in the antenna cause me to lose the pairing on the cablecard?
3: If I cannot tune both at the same time, will rerunning guided setup to switch from cable to antenna erase the pairing on the cablecard should I want to switch back to the cable?

Sorry for the dumb questions, but between DirecTv and the newer Tivos, Ive totally forgotten about the TivoHD.

Lock-up when two channels paused

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 01/29/2014 - 20:44
Has anyone else experienced Tivo Premiere XL4 lock-ups when they have 2 programs or more paused, and Tivo needs to change the tuner to record a program?
I'm running 20.3.8.
After I select OK to change tuner on second paused channel, the unit stops responding to remote control commands. I did discover that if I use the Tivo app on my android to tell the Tivo to 'watch' a channel, it 'unlocks' the box, and all is well. It does start recording the programs, just acts like it's locked up, until I use the app.

"Due to inclement weather, the game has been moved to ESPN3"

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 01/29/2014 - 20:01
Does this make sense to anyone? A basketball game was scheduled for one of the ESPN channels, but when we stared the recording, the announcer said the above (and switched to another game). To be clear:

- The game is still happening, on time.
- They're still covering it (but only online).

It seems like it must be just an excuse, but if there's a way in which the weather actually makes sense as a reason for the move, I'm curious to hear it.

Web based program guides that allow TiVo scheduling?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 01/29/2014 - 19:15
I really love TitanTV. Is there any way to use it to program recordings on my TiVo Roamio? If not are there any other similar web based guides that will?

I know TiVo has one on their site but I don't particularly like it.

Ok so I have a strange issue with channels not working on my TiVo Premiere XL with Verizon Fios in Washington DC.

Contact your cable provider for more information (V58)." Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Off or sleep button

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 01/29/2014 - 17:47
Hi. Does the Mini have an Off or Sleep button? My iScan Duo video processor is set for input auto-sensing and I need to be able to "switch away" from the Mini to view another source (like Chromecast).

Mini picture quality vs. Roamio basic

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 01/29/2014 - 17:38
Hi. Does the Mini reproduce a pixel accurate version of what was recorded on the Roamio basic or does the content get compressed when streamed to the Mini and therefor what the Mini outputs is "lesser" than what a Roamio basic outputs?

Tivo Roamio basic OTA <--> cablecard

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 01/29/2014 - 17:35
Hi. So I have the Roamio basic. If I use it 95% of the time for OTA, and just want to use it 5% of the time for cablecard, is this a viable (livable) solution?

Or do I have to reboot and reconfig the unit every time I want to switch between OTA and cablecard?

Errors V53, V58

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 01/29/2014 - 17:15
Just installed a Roamio Plus and a Mini. Everything looked good for a few hours, then the picture broke up, heavy pixilation. Tuning channels got either error V53 or V58. Tivo said the signal strength was too high, suggested an attenuator or getting the cable company to reduce the strength. Since I like the fast ethernet (20mb) I do not want the cable signal degraded. So I have ordered three attenuators (3db, 6db and 12db) to test. I then realized I have an old splitter, with each leg suffering a 3.5db loss, so I am now trying it - so far so good. I have 60 days to get it working or return for a credit from Best Buy and Tivo (lifetime).

Does not say much for the quality of the Tivo tuners...never happened with cheap cable company boxes.

Static/Pop sound when changing channels (after installing MOCA adapter)

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 01/29/2014 - 16:54
Moved my premier to a spare bedroom after upgrading it with a Roamio. The premier replaced an HD tivo with a tivo wireless adapter. The premier worked perfectly but could not transfer fast because it was wireless. So I decided to get a Moca adapter for it.

I turned Moca networking on my new Roamio and installed a Moca adapter on the premier. Evertying works fine but now once the Moca adapter was connected on the premier I get a static/pop sound everytime the channel is changed.

The cable wire first goes through the moca adapter then throught the tuning adapter then to the premier box. Also the premier is connected to the TV through an HDMI cable. Cable provider is COX.

Any suggestions???

Roamio and Mini perfect sync?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 01/29/2014 - 16:52
I have a Roamio setup in a living room that is open to the kitchen where a mini is setup with a small TV. We want to have them play the same show and be in sync with each other because you can here the speakers from both rooms. The scenario is my wife's in the kitchen, I'm in the living room, and we're watching the same show. Because there is a slight delay with the mini the shows and audio are not in sync.

I've tried to fix this by briefly pausing the Roamio and then start it again to be in sync with the mini, it's a hit or miss process and frustrating. Does anyone know of an easy way to accomplish what I'm going for?


New Pandora - broken?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 01/29/2014 - 16:33
New version of Pandora is very broken for me on Premiere

It plays exactly one song and then no more audio (though the UI seems to think it is still playing)

Also, controls no longer work, have to navigate to buttons to ff, etc..

Bring back the old app please!:mad:
