Psych: The Musical OAD 12/15/2013 (spoiler free first post only)

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 12/16/2013 - 15:30
Figured I'd find a thread on this... maybe Psych is too long in the tooth these days. I only started watching 1.5 years ago via netflix, so I guess it still seems a bit fresh to me.

Anyway, I wasn't out looking for this episode, my DVR just picked it up. If you missed it, it is probably on USA's website and will be rebroadcast nest Sunday it looks like.

I know I saw a comic con panel on you tube some time ago and they were talking about a musical, so it seems they finally followed through.

I promised spoiler free in the first post so that's all I'll comment about for this post...

Problems receiving slide remotes?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 12/16/2013 - 12:59
Anyone else having trouble actually getting a slide remote shipped from Tivo to you? Something is very wrong at Tivo.... I have ordered three so far and have only received ONE.

The first remote I ordered, the shipping envelope was open and empty when received. So I asked for a refund and re-ordered (a chore in itself).

The second was received OK (but shipped next day air, so maybe it went through a different process).

I decided I wanted two slide remotes so I ordered another one. Silly me ;) That one supposedly "shipped" but five days later has not shown up in the UPS tracking system as anything other than a label. UPS says they don't have it and that they scan it when it arrives at the UPS facility so it is Tivo's fault. Tivo says UPS scans it when they take possession of it at the TIVO facility and Tivo shows it as shipped, so it is UPS's fault.

In the mean time, there are four of them on Ebay right now, selling for less than the Tivo price.......

Am I the only one?


No Streaming Over LTE?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 12/16/2013 - 12:16
My LTE is many times faster than the majority of the free wifi I can find anywhere, why can't I stream live shows on the go via LTE?

Edit: Comcast (Xfinity) is streaming live TV to my phone over LTE why can't TiVo?

Multiple MoCA Networks on Same COAX?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 12/16/2013 - 09:42
I just ordered a Roamio Pro and Mini to replace my HD and HD XL.

I have FIOS. My FIOS router is only MoCA 1.0 and is maxed out on the number of MoCA devices (My house isn't wired with Cat-5 and I have MoCA to Ethernet bridges at most TVs. Works ridiculously awesome by the way.).

Have any of you guys had problems with the Roamios and Minis running a second MoCA network on the same COAX on a different MoCA channel? Technically I guess this would be the third MoCA network, since FIOS uses one MoCA network for the broadband side, and another on the same COAX for the WAN side already.

What is the real bitrate requirement between a Roamio and a Mini? In the Tivo documentation it states that you need a MoCA PHY of at least 180 for three Minis simultaneously. They also state that a MoCA PHY of 180 is equivalent to 100Mbps. So does this mean a Roamio to Mini connection only requires 33Mbps? That is pretty slow.

Channel Master's DVR+ offers true subscription-free over-the-air TV recording

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 12/16/2013 - 08:16
I know this thing is new, but has anyone heard anything more about it and how it stacks up against TiVo?

Not just the latest version either, but would it be a good solution for people upgrading from Series 2, 3, or HD's?


Channel Master DVR+ Now Available For Pre-Order ($250)

Zatz Not Funny! - Mon, 12/16/2013 - 07:00

We’ve been tracking Channel Master‘s moves since new digital video recorder hardware first surfaced in FCC documents last summer. They’ve clearly used the intervening months wisely to fine tune both the product experience and marketing strategy as the originally documented pair of K77 set-tops has been whittled down to the single and more memorable DVR+ ($250). And, as you [...]

Apps Up Next for Chromecast

Zatz Not Funny! - Mon, 12/16/2013 - 04:31

Google announced a slate of new apps for Chromecast last week, but as most were less than compelling, it’s time to speculate on what else might be in the pipeline. According to Janko Roettgers over at GigaOM, Google plans to launch further “waves of Chromecast apps” in the near future. Here are a few guesses [...]

Roamio remote easter egg

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 12/16/2013 - 00:29
I accidentally found what I think is a new easter egg in the Roamio remote. (I would imagine that it's in the new slide remote too, but I don't have one to test.)

Press and hold the TiVo and Play buttons on your Roamio remote until the LED lights up. Then release the buttons.

It seems to repeat until you press another button.

If this is old news, sorry, but a quick search of the forum didn't yield any existing threads on this.

Once Upon a Time S03E11 "Going Home"

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 12/15/2013 - 23:09
When they put that binding on Peter Pan, I said to my girlfriend "You know he's just gonna take that silly thing off when he wakes up..."

That curse sure moves slow when it needs to.

They had a lot of confidence that beetle would start.

I had Felix's heart being torn out pegged last episode. Saw that one coming. Pity that Felix just stood there as Pan told him exactly what he was about to do, then slowly did it.

Could have done without the blue fairy being raised from the dead. Dead should be dead.

Spoilerized question about the preview for March's return:

Stupd Roamio dumps partial recording and starts over!

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 12/15/2013 - 23:01
Stupid new Roamio. Not a good start...

I'm watching Green Bay vs Dallas today, casually, in the buffer. Around 7:45 or so it's getting interesting. I begin recording what I'm watching. Wife has a show at 8:00 she wants to see. At about 8:01 I go and find the show she wants and record it. When I come back to my football game the recording has nothing!

It's basically the post-game show. I missed the last two minutes of the game. The last 10 minutes of game time was being recorded. I was watching it. But somehow when I started recording the other show it dumped my game and started it again :( Very frustrated

Existing Roamio Hard Drive Upgrade - Do I lose season passes?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 12/15/2013 - 19:34
Hi Gents if I perform a hard drive upgrade on a Roamio on which I've already set up a bunch of season passes, will I have to reprogram those season passes after I perform the upgrade? I know I'll lose the content, but I'm just wondering whether I will have to reprogram the season passes. If I have to reprogram, is there a workaround whereby I won't have to do so? Thanks.

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 12/15/2013 - 17:28
Curious if anyone records a show in HD and also non HD if they intend to transfer it to a tablet or mobile device? I have a 3 hour HD recording that is 10gig that I'd like to put on an Android tablet weekly but don't want to take up 10gig. are there ways to shrink it so its 10% the size?

Thank you,
