Move mini between TVs?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 11/23/2014 - 10:12
Hi Everyone,
I'm thinking of going the tivo route with minis and have a very basic question as this is all new to me. Is it easy to move a mini from one TV to another? We have a 2 TVs that are only used sporadically- one in an upstairs bedroom and one in the basement. Do I need to buy 2 minis or can I just move one mini between them when we want to watch one of the TVs? Thanks for your help.

How to Get Away with Murder 11/20/2014 Kill Me, Kill Me, Kill Me

Looks like we've finally caught up in time, so maybe no more flashbacks? I hope so, I'm really getting tired of the same stuff over and over.

It was Wes who killed Sam? It was fun when they made it look like Michaela did it by pushing him over the stair railing, but we knew that couldn't be it because of the trophy. But Wes hitting Sam to stop him from choking Rebecca was what did it.

Annalise being vunerable with Nate was very believable. Much more so than when she was trying to be so with Sam (all IMO, and of course YMMV.:D)

And now the show is on break until Jan 29, ugh!!!

Noticing certain graphics on my roamio don't show properly unless I restart the tivo. Is this a normal occurrence? Attached two pictures, one of the thumbs up icon and the other from the To Do List with this issue.

New to Tivo

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/22/2014 - 23:30
Im looking to get a used Tivo box on ebay, but need some guidance...

Im looking for a DVR for Antenna TV. I have one of those flat indoor antennas from walmart that hooks into my TV and I get like 10 channels. Im good with that, but I just want to be able to record TV when Im not home or if Im watching something else, I can record on another channel.

I don't want a monthly payment and 699 is a lot for a basic box and a lifetime services, so I went to ebay.

Are there used boxes that will NOT work for what I want? Looks like people are selling Series 2, Series 3, Series 4, Premium.

Does anyone have any guidance?

Thank you

Question on FIOS with Ethernet from ONT and MOCA

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/22/2014 - 21:56
I have FIOS and my internet is on ethernet which runs to my can in my master bedroom which contains my coax feed and router that splits to all the rooms in my townhouse. I have ethernet in my bedrooms and kitchen but no line in my family room where my Roamio is located. I purchased the Actiontec MOCA adapter (2) and am trying to figure out how to set it up.

If I connect the Actiontec to the Coax and ethernet ethernet in the can in the master bedroom will enabling MOCA on the Roamio give it an internet connection and allow my mini to work as well? The mini is connected to the ethernet feed in my master bedroom.

Problems streaming Netflix on Roamio

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/22/2014 - 18:07
Hi. We upgraded to a Roamio in September and have noticed that when we watch Netflix using the Roamio, the resolution of the programming switches from good to very bad right in front of our eyes. Is this a known problem? Is there a fix for it?


Legality of 3rd Party Tivo transferring (pyTivo, kmtttg, VideoReDo)

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/22/2014 - 17:56
So I currently have Tivo Desktop Plus, but am not overly happy with the conversion options and am interested in the third party software frequently discussed in this forum like pyTivo, kmtttg, VideoReDo. My concern is that I don't want to be doing anything illegal or violating Tivo terms and conditions. I tried searching for VideoReDo and saw something that they exploit a portion of Tivo Desktop which made me a little uneasy, but then a saw a message that they were in negotiations with Tivo over something so it sounded more on the up and up.

Is anyone able to directly answer the question on whether using that software to do things like pull shows off my tivo, change the format, edit them, etc. is legal and in accordinace with Tivo terms and conditions?

Is there a RF to IR converter for Slide pro?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/22/2014 - 17:47
I have a Tivo slide pro and an IR-controlled Yamaha AVR (RX-V765) that uses IR and is behind a wall. I'd like to use the TIVO remote RF ability to control the Yamaha. Is there a Slide Pro RF to IR converter system that will allow me to send a power and volume signal from the slide pro to the Yamaha behind the wall?

I am open to other ways to power on/off the Yamaha and use it for volume.


The Amazing Race: OAD 11-21-2014: "Hot Sexy Knights"

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/22/2014 - 17:31
So the surfers use their Express Pass to claim a 1st. My wife and I are in disagreement about if this was their last chance to use the pass. Anyone remember from the original instructions that went with it? This was leg 8 and there are 4 to go.

Anyway, the dentists would have finished 1st again otherwise. They are on a roll. Sorry about Tim & Te, but they were pretty clearly the weakest team. If the TAR gods are good to us, the food girls will go home next week and we'll have as strong a final 4 as any season has had.

And that one challenge, running out the greased pole to grab the flag? Ouch!

Tuner allocation

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/22/2014 - 15:50
How do I control what channels my Pro are buffering?

Thought it would buffer the last six channels entered. Obviously I'm ignorant on this.

Don't want to record any channel, just ping pong around watching different football games.

ios8 app: can't get closed captioning to turn off

When did Amazon Prime appear???!!!!!!

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/22/2014 - 12:04
Had no idea Amazon Prime was up and running on the TiVo platform. Wow, been waiting for this for awhile. The interface looks great. Streams in 24fps and 5.1 audio, provided the content is in 5.1. Just wish the info button displayed the playback codecs like it does on the Netflix app. No more switching to other devices for Amazon Prime, love it.

Roamio Plus not seeing MTR700 on Charter

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/22/2014 - 11:45
I've had a Roamio plus for about a month. While I finally got the cable card working (Charter Cable) I have yet gotten the Tuning adapter to talk to the Roamio. 3 charter calls, a tech visit with the same old TA(a refurb I'm told) and still nothing. I'm missing quite a few channels. Even 1 of the charter techs said I needed a later firmware version. How can I get this adapter!? Charter just doesn't get it. Our current charter "store" only has the refurbs, all identical.

Also, Where is the firmware version located on the physical box?

New Girl Season 4 (2014-2015) *Spoilers*

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/22/2014 - 10:06
Is anyone still watching New Girl? I never see threads here, but IMO this is still one of the most consistently hilarious shows on TV. They did a good job with the Nick/Jess relationship and the aftermath, which is so often the death knell of TV shows.

I know not everyone is a fan of Zooey but post-season 1 she got rid of a lot of the annoying quirks and now Jess is just amusingly odd. And the surrounding cast, Nick and Schmidt especially, are great.

This is one I always watch the same night; usually "almost live".

Can I cancel service on TiVo mini then reactivate to get free lifetime

new to the TiVo (roamio ota)

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/22/2014 - 08:04
we just cut the cord (Dish Network) and after weeks of research I settled on the TiVo... It's everything we were looking for ! I do have a few questions....is there a way to turn off the "beeps" when changing channels or using the remote ?

Also is there a way to store my favorite channels ?

I did not realize when I purchased the OTA that I would not be able to buy the life time service....do you think will change down road ?


Audio Podcast control?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/22/2014 - 07:33
Hey all,

Is there a way/better way to control audio podcasts? Specifically one from an RSS feed, where I manually had to enter URL if that makes a difference?

The only options I can see are "stop", and then after that "play" starts from the beginning. Pretty annoying.

i'm listening to "serial" while working in my woodshop. Audio-only is a much better option for doing work like this. And being a sometimes noisy environment, using my phone's speaker is a great option. And I hate headphones. So on a lark, I googled around to see if there was a way to do it with Tivo, so I could leverage my TV's sound, and sure enough it can be done- I just would love the ability to pause/rewind etc.

Is there any way / an app where I can cast an audio podcast to the tivo (in this case a mini, if it matters) from my phone to the tivo, like we can do with youtube?


Ecobee3 Smart Thermostat – A Solid Nest Challenger

Background Three years ago, Nest announced their first smart thermostat clocking in at $250. While others balked at the price, I saw the value of something that could potentially reduce our family energy expenditure. And save money we did! Despite the upfront cost of the Nest, after having used the device that first twelve months, I estimated we dropped […]

How Wire 3 Hdmi (tivo, Cable, & Roku) With Two Hdmi Tv Inputs? Need All Three

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 11/22/2014 - 03:39
We have been using Tivo-3 with Cox cable just fine with a two HDMI input TV. Now that we have added Roku, it's seems like we can't get all three to work, only two.

Roku and Tivo are both wireless. The obvious solution would seem to be to use an HDMI adapter (I used the Kinivio) to both input the two HDMI (Tivo & Roku) that go into the back of one of the HDMI inputs on the TV, but that doesn't work. Is there some adapter that does work that way?

I have read one suggestion that one can go from wireless to ethernet and use a switch. Has anyone done that successfully? in our house, that would be a long run of unsightly wiring.

I would appreciate the suggestions of anyone that has been successful in doing this.
