I am getting ready to take the plunge and upgrade from my series 3 to a Roamio.
I have been reading the specs for the three tiers - and it is not immediately obvious what the difference is between the Plus and the Pro - besides the base amount of storage.
If this is true - then I'll probably buy a Plus and simply upgrade the hard drive size myself - or buy one already upgraded (weaknees) if that seems to be more cost effective.
If this is a FAQ - it's not immediately obvious via searching this forum...
The guide data had it on at 1700 EST. It was actually episode 3. First showing of episode 4 is 2200 EST. If your SP picked up the 1700 showing, it will have to be manually scheduled.
Did pirates deals in US $ during this time? I would think the pound sterling would be the "world" currency of the day. Any history experts here.
I am occasionally noticing some very slight pixelation followed by an occasional sound 'blip'. I'm not sure if it predominately happens on one or more channels, but when I caught it happening on one of my local channels I went to the diags screen and all tuners showed mid-high signals (93-100).
How does one methodically try to figure this out. If someone can provide me with some ideas, I'd like to figure out why.
I also should mention that my SNL numbers are usually 39-40ish range, but I haven't paid as much attention to that as the signal strength. Should I?
Would a cable booster improve the issue or would it also boost any problems that might be involved?
My cable comes into my attic and splits 3 ways (1 to AV cabinet, 1 to cable modem and 1 to 4 way spitter)
The AV cabinet has a 2 way splitter, 1 to tuning adapter and 1 to Tivo.
Cable is about 5 years old but heavy duty and was used for satellite install.

Suddenly, Lost Girl is scheduled this Monday and next (1/27 and 2/2) for 10/9c and Bitten for 8/7c, reverse of what they were before. If you're only watching one of them, check for conflicts. Being Human maintains at 9/8c.
Presumably they remembered that Lost Girl historically has had more partial nudity and blurred content, though it is currently rated TV-14 while new series Bitten is TV-MA. Or they want to give freshman series Bitten a chance to have more viewership in an earlier timeslot. Personally, I think they should have waited until Being Human finished its run before introducing a new werewolf series.
This Monday's also the night The Following re-airs on Fox after it's post-game scheduling season premiere debacle. Back-to-back episodes 8/7c and 9/8c. Almost Human returns next week, 8/7c with The Following settling into the 9/8c slot.
Almost Human on Fox, then Being Human on Syfy. Hmm.
What advantages do the newer Tivo's have over the Tivo HD? I am looking form something to record HD local over the air signals. Two tuners will work fine.
My TV already has Netflix and other internet features so that is not important to me in the Tivo.
When I checked ebay it looks like Tivo Series 3 HD are a lot cheaper for a lifetime box then a premier or roamio. What would I gain with the newer boxes?
TiVo Slide Remote (old model) available through Amazon for only $229.95. Better only 3 left in stock.
I am going to suspend my directv account for 6 months and see if I can make a go of tivo.
I have a basic roamio and a mini being delivered tomorrow, but I am trying to setup all I can before they arrive.
I have been reading all I can on this site, as well as on tivo.com.
I have an attic antenna that is split to several jacks around the house. This is currently giving me crystal clear HD, better than directv.
I just used a directv cinema connection wireless device to bring internet to my tv where i plan on putting the roamio. I have two of these devices. Can I use them as moca adapters? One at the router and one at the roamio tv, or do i even need to do that, as long as i have internet using just one of the directv devices?
I am trying to get away with not buying the actiontec adapters, so can anyone tell me if my existing directv devices will work at moca adapters?
I will have a mini in another room, but I know it won't work without a moca network. I am pretty shaky on how to set that up.
Thank you so much in advance.
I am looking to get a mini for my system. All of my network is hard wired via Ethernet. Everything works good with my series 3 and premiere TiVos. Certain locations I am thinking of putting the mini would basically require about 3 or 4 hops through various 10/100 mbs network switches in order to get the live TV tuner from a 4-tuner Premiere.
Will the mini be able to get the live tuner easily through the various network switches. Or could there be some complications. If so, what? I thought about maybe givng the 4-tuner premiere a fixed/static IP address to possibly help this situation. Or will this not matter?
Any thoughts or insight?
I have looked over the forum and so maybe the answer is out there but under different wording / terminology..
(1) Can two Roamio Basic's share programs? AKA: If program is recorded on Roamio Basic #1 (living room) be viewed on Roamio Basic #2 set up in another room? AKA: Can two Roamio Basic's be on the same network?
(2) If three Mini's connected to the same network with only one Roamio Basic and two of the Mini's and the Roamio Basic all tuned to the same channel does this take three tuners or do they all share the same (one) tuner till one of them changes channels?
IF the answer to #1 is yes... Can you have two Roamio Basic's on the same network along with two Mini's can the Mini's choose programing for playback from either of the two Roamio Basic's? (current Monday, Thur. & Friday programing has me recording on six channels!)
After close to 20 years of being a DirecTV subscriber their leasing/per-set and program charges are forcing me to look else where for my programing, and since 90% of my recorded programs is Network TV which I could record off air I a looking at getting a Tivo again (I say again as my first few DirecTV DVR's were Tivo interface based.) I currently have three HD-DVR's and two HD Receivers that share programing all on the same 1GB rated wired network (Not MOCA), so can I use Tivo's to replicate the same program sharing set-up?
Just noticed that I'm getting TiVo service "communication error"s from the Tivo App and my Tivo's are getting a C133 error and have no online content on the main screen. Someone over at TiVo doing a server maintenance?
I set up a wish list to auto-record my favorite hockey team. It actually starts recording and I can watch while it's recording the game in "my shows", but once it's done it disappears, not to be found anywhere.
I go to history and see why it didn't record (even though it started recording) and it's says it's a duplicate of something that's been done within the last 28 days and that I have to set up to record "everything". Now it records the game that gets replayed around 3 times after the game has been played.
Other than just having it recording "everything", i have the tuners and i have the space, is there a where to work around this that it only records the "live" game? I think I may have to have it not "auto-record" and manually set up each recording. That kinda sucks because I may miss a game because I forgot to record it.
I can't imagine I'm the only one with this problem so I'm sure somebody has a suggestion.
I have a Premiere and an older HD. When I'm streaming Netflix on my Premiere, there seems to be no way to jump to the beginning or end of a movie! We're 1.5 hours into "The Hunger Games" and the only way I can see to restart the movie is to scan backwards through the whole damn thing--which on a streaming movie takes about fifteen minutes!
What's the deal? I changed the remote setting to get rid of the 30-second skip, but that didn't help. If I'm paused, hitting the Advance (or Skip, if you prefer) button jumps ahead 10 seconds, and the Replay jumps back 10 seconds. Same with FF or REW. There are no tick marks to jump to, and it won't jump to the beginning or end.
There's also no "Play from beginning" option when I start the movie, which would help.
Am I missing something, or on the Premiere with the latest Netflix app is it just impossible to jump to the beginning or end of a show? Because if so, that's mind-bogglingly stupid.
I'm already suffering through the incredibly slow HD interface. (Great idea: make the hardware 2x faster and the software 20x slower!) I stuffed the Premiere in our back room and use the older HD for our regular viewing. I feel like Tivo is going the way of too many other tech companies: each update makes their products worse.
Attached to this post is a "weblauncher" module for python HME. The intent is to be able to launch web pages on internal TiVo Opera browser from the TiVo itself. i.e. This is an HME wrapper around launching web pages on TiVo internal browser. Obviously the web launching will only work for series 4 or later TiVos (and Minis).
This may become useful at some point if/when 3rd party html/html5 applications are developed for TiVo.
Once unzipped to top python HME folder all you need to do is edit weblauncher/config.ini to supply your 10 digit MAK, and also to enter 1 or more URLs that you want to be able to launch.
Decided to jump on the Roamio bandwagon, and sell my 648 S3 OLED with lifetime. I replaced the power supply in it and it has a <1 yr old 2T hard drive. I don't know the best place to sell it, though. Should I put it up on eBay? Sell it here? Craig's list?
What's the best move?
Former ion stations in Houston have moved to a low power frequency. In the former ch 49 is now the main ion channel and about ten subchannels. My research reveals they are encrypted premium movie channels and also Spanish Tv. A special reciever is required to pick up the premium channels. The box is from airbox tv. I would not mind Showtime for a small fee. No way I want another box though, the Premiere is doing just fine. I do wonder if the new company box will have a guide since there is a payment plan...and I wonder if Tivo would ever be able to have a compatible device that picks up the encrypted channels?
The show airing tonight ("Car Chase Chaos; Animal Antics") lists an Original Air Date of 9/16/2013 on both my TiVo and Zap2It.com. Since my Season Pass is set to record only new episodes, it was set to be skipped over and not recorded. I had to set a manual recording to ensure it'd get saved.
Does the Premiere allow OTA channels while using the CableCard and if so how? It has 2 coax connectors on back, one for each. It says channel scanning is not possible with my present setup.
I've been using my Roamio for OTA, but getting only 2 channels isn't cutting it (This is my location, but the fault of the Roamio). I called Time Warner to see what they'd charge for the locals only package. They said it would add $20 to my bill (Currently have high speed internet with them), which I thought was ridiculous, but said go ahead anyway, but when I mentioned that I needed a cable card for my Tivo, they flat out refused. I told them they were required by law to issue cable card, and they said yes, but not for this particular package. It REQUIRED their receiver, and REQUIRED a professional $50 install as well. Is this right? Can they refuse to issue cable cards on their basic, locals only package?
