Once Upon a Time S04E12 "Darkness on the Edge of Town" OAD 3/1/2015

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 03/01/2015 - 23:14
Very curious what Snow/Charming are talking about in their dealings with the villains. :)

I watched the hour-long pre-show, and thought it was quite entertaining. They really work that poor costuming guy. :) Most of the character/story details we already knew, but it was fun to watch the actors explain some things from their perspective.

I still don't understand how no one knows that August is the Author... or maybe it wasn't really him.

The Walking Dead 'Remember' S05E12 3/1/15

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 03/01/2015 - 23:09
I liked this episode even though it was relatively thoughtful. Couldn't believe the change in Rick after his shave and haircut.

Lots of setup, still not really clear where this is going.

Who played the congress woman? - wasn't on IMDB when I looked.

How about the blond woman who cut Rick's hair ?

I was confused whether Rick walking alone at night were dreams or real at times.

TiVo TSN D12 (Pace Mini)

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 03/01/2015 - 19:03
I know there are a lot of "D12" posts out there for an old DirectTV box, but this is different.

Last month I got two visits at EWz from a box with a TSN beginning D12. I've seen D18 from Pace before (platform=Pac01), but this is new. This one appears to be a Mini from its properties.


removing suggestions from folders

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 03/01/2015 - 16:50
OK, so My Tivo just got a new update, and I can not turn off the folder view of my shows. The reason I've avoided using this view in the past is because I don't like having suggestions in show specific folders.

I'll see that little folder with a 3 in it and thing I've got 3 of these shows to watch, I click into it and it turns out I have one to watch, and two suggestions.

Since I can't turn off the folder view anymore, is there a way to keep suggestions from showing up in these folders?

I don't want to turn off suggestions all together as the kids find lots of good shows to watch in there. I'm totally cool having a suggestions folder, I just don't like them popping up in all the other show specific folders.

MOCA bridge to RJ45 thru on Tivo Roamio/Mini?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 03/01/2015 - 16:27
I'm about to leave DTV and switch to cable with Tivo. My Cat-5 network only reaches 1 TV (which i don't even use), so my plans are to do the following:
main router -> Moca adaptor -> coax wiring
Coax into Tivo Roamio and 2-3 Mini's

I'm confident that will work for the networking portion. The next question I have is for 2 wireless AP's in the house that currently hang off moca adaptors. Can i use the Tivo Roamio and Mini's (Networked through Moca) as bridges and hang the WAP's off of each Tivo's Cat-5 port?

If this won't work, then I guess I can do a Coax splitter going into the Tivo and also into a Moca adaptor, then to the WAP... but the less hardware, the better.

Program info banner resizing option broken?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 03/01/2015 - 15:33
And so, with a new Roamio and the latest TiVo update, is the ability to resize the onscreen program info banner broken?

If I press the remote's Info button or right arrow button while watching live tv, I get the large program info banner across the bottom half of the screen. But if I then try to resize the banner to a smaller size by pressing the right arrow button, nothing happens--my only option is to press the left arrow button or the Info button to have the banner go away. And if I go to a new tv channel by pressing the channel up or channel down button, I get the smaller program info banner, but again can't resize it.

Am I missing something or did the feature (described in the user guide) go away, or get broken? Or is there a special setting somewhere that needs to be set? Thanks--

anyone connect two rf remotes to one mini?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 03/01/2015 - 14:34
Does anyone know if two roamio rf remotes can sync simultaneously to the same ver 1 mini using the same rf dongle?


Has anyone got x2 BT ver 1 Slide remotes to work on the same mini? If so did it take both usb Bluetooth dongles or were both able ro connect via Bluetooth using the same dongle?

I've already tried pairing simultaneously one rf and one Bluetooth remote unsuccessfully.

Netflix vs. Amazon

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 03/01/2015 - 11:49
I am just learning how to navigate the new Amazon Prime app. Never really played with it before Prime was added.

Couple of questions:

I like that when I press the info button during Netflix, I get to see the resolution and the remaining time without stopping the playback. The info does nothing during Amazon playback. How can I see the resolution on the Amazon App?

When I rewind on Netflix, I see the scenes/window panes in either direction. It gives me an idea of how far in each direction I want to rewind or fast forward. It seemed that the Amazon app gave me just a clock counter. Options?

Any link to all the functions of the remote control buttons for both apps?

Recording won't play

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 03/01/2015 - 10:34
Post 20.4.6 update, recording won't play or stream. If I try and play it on tv, I get black screen and progress indicator stuck at 0 sec. Skip and FF are unresponsive. I also tried to stream the recording to my iPad and got a playback error. Message indicates error information sent to clipboard but I don't know how to access this info.

I have also noticed that streaming sessions fail the first try every time since updating to 20.4.6 on 2 roamios and 1 premier. This was flawless pre update.

Any ideas?

FiOS Router/MoCa with Airport Extreme

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 03/01/2015 - 09:49
I am looking for an advanced networking guru to assist with this issue.

I currently have a FiOS Modem/Router combo unit that is being used with MoCa for my TiVo DVR. I have an Airport Extreme and an Airport Express also connected to the FiOS Router since I need them in order to extend the Wifi signal to the entire house. The FiOS Router is handing out addresses to the Tivo Via MoCa and to the Extreme via wired connection. The peripherals (iPad, Mac, iPhone) that are wirelessly communicating via the wifi network are not being 'seen' by the TiVo because the Tivo is on the FiOS network and the others are on the Extreme/express wifi network.

Is there a way to consolidate these two networks so that they are all able to communicate with each other? I remember trying to use the 'bridge' function when I initially set this up about 2 years ago and for some reason the devices did not work properly together. Might I have been doing something fundamentally wrong?

In case you are wondering...When I change my iPad, iPhone, to the FiOs network, they are able to communicate with the TiVo (connected via MoCa) but the signal is way too low so I have to extend...

I have also posted this issue on the Apple Support forum for feedback...

Audio Clipping Multi-room recordings

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 03/01/2015 - 07:44
I have 3 Premiers and wireless g routers. When using any device to watch a show recorded on another device, I get sound clipping on HD recorded shows. SD shows play fine. I am Verizon FiOS. A call to TiVO customer service pointed the finger at Verizon but I am not confident they are the problem. Verizon says my throughput exceeds specs. I have no issues with streaming Netflix HD and Amazon Prime HD through TiVo and my Roku services work fine. I only have a TiVo multi-room issue. Verizon wants to sell me a new 800meg router for $200. I am also considering the wireless n routers through TiVO. I'm OK with the expense for either or both options but I would like to have some confidence they will fix the problem. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Mini playback is periodically choppy

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 03/01/2015 - 07:38
Mini and Roamio on TWC are both connected via Ethernet

The last couple of days I've been getting choppy playback on the Mini. If I change channel (or switch to live to when it happens on recorded show), it will correct it for a while.


TiVo in the guest bedroom

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 03/01/2015 - 07:18
I've been moving my TiVos around as I buy more Minis. I have an extra mini thanks to the recent woot sale for example. I'm trying to decide if it makes more sense to have a mini linked to our main Roamio or one of my old Premiere XL (2 tuner) units in the guest bedroom.

I don't like the idea of a guest inadvertently deleting shows off our TiVo. The Premiere seems like overkill though. Maybe I record a handful of HGTV shows in there though?

What have others done?

Ethernet-Roamio + TiVo Mini Without MoCA

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 03/01/2015 - 05:50
I am totally new to the forums—so I apologize for any newbie errors.
•I was a TiVo user back when DirecTV used TiVo and NOW I'm excited that I might be rejoining TiVo again—if I can figure out setting up TiVo Roamio (basic) and one Mini, via Ethernet. I'm dropping CenturyLink/DirecTV and switching to Comcast Xfinity for Internet and basic Cable since there aren't other options for internet.
•Even though I've been reading the forums for weeks, I still have questions! It seems everyone's setup/situation is just a bit different from everyone else's.
•I would rather run Ethernet than deal with MoCA. So, my plan is to run Cat6 Waterproof Outdoor Shielded Solid cable through our crawlspace to the Roamio and Tivo Mini (only one Mini to start with).
•GOAL: Stream Amazon Fire TV (and other available streamable content), plus store streaming and OTA broadcasting to TWO televisions (Living Room and Master Bedroom).
•Step 1: Coaxial Cable connects to MODEM in OFFICE and to ROAMIO in LIVING ROOM.
•Step 2: ETHERNET connects from the ROUTER which is in the OFFICE to the LIVING ROOM where the ROAMIO is located and then to the MASTER BEDROOM where the TIVO MINI is located.
??? Can I “split” the Ethernet at the Living Room/Roamio junction by swiveling a splitter, so it splits off to the Roamio, but continues full-fledged (so to speak) on to the bedroom? I am assuming that the Roamio and Mini should be on the same port. The only Ethernet-like splitters/combiners I can find are the paired-type, such as Gigaware or Rj45. But, then, I may not be searching with the correct terminology! Maybe I need a hub?
??? Also, somewhere here in the Forums, people discussed requirements for coax splitters as 2.0 or 3.0Mhz, and mentioned some brand names. I wish I had bookmarked that info since I cannot find it again.
•I can only afford to do this if I am able to get in on the deals that expire on Monday, 03/01 (for Xfinity) and Tuesday, 03/02 (for TiVo). Sorry for posting so last-minute, but I thought I had it all figured out until I was double-checking my to-be-ordered list, and started thinking “oops, this might not be right. . . .” Sigh. Thank you so much for any assistance.
I've attached a little sketch just in case it might be helpful.

Confused on drive upgrade

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 03/01/2015 - 01:00
I have what I believe is a "Series 3 HD", the TSN starts with 652.

Reading the faq's seems to indicate that it can have a *total* of 2.2tb of disk space, but only across two drives, 1tb internal, and 1tb external.

But there seems to be indications that you can put a 2tb internal drive.

I want to maximize space without an external drive. What is the largest I can use? 1tb or 2tb?

I don't care about saving anything on the existing unit (shows, season passes, etc). As far as I know (I got it used) it has the original drive in it.

What are my options?

Spontaneous reboot using Amazon app

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 02/28/2015 - 23:22
I've never had an issue with it before the update, and I use it a lot. I hadn't touched the remote in a while and the video froze for about 5 seconds, then *poof*.

Farking lovely update. It crashes, but at least it ruined digital optical audio!

And the flagship item that is supposed to be of value? Useless. I tried OnePass with one of the Amazon shows I watch. There is no indication of what episodes you've watched. Why would I use OnePass when I can just go to the app directly and see that?

Thanks TiVo!

Any way to make Kids shows not appear in "all"

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 02/28/2015 - 23:14
Is there a way to make the shows in the "kids" category not appear in"all"? I would assume not, but it is annoying to want to see all my recordings and have to sift though peppa pig, Micky mouse clubhouse and the 50 other shows our daughter watches to see all my stuff.

I don't really want to deal with going into the other categories to find my things. Is there a way to have a "non kids" category (I refrained from using the "adult" therm as that can have a different meaning :) )

Thanks everyone!

20.4.6. bug showing all episodes

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 02/28/2015 - 22:57
Seeing a weird bug in 20.4.6.

I went into Episodes for a OnePass (set for Recordings only) that has upcoming episodes for some seasons only (for example, Blacklist has only season 2). It showed available by default, and displays 2 in the upper part. When I switched to all, it showed no episodes, and said something along the lines of "no episodes for season 2 available", even though I never chose season 2, and this is supposed to be all, not available; the upper part still shows just 2, instead of a number for each season; all used to show all episodes in the database, from all seasons. Switching to free shows the season 2 episodes again.

If I pick a show without any upcoming episodes, then it works better (all displays all episodes) but does not show season numbers in the upper part, it shows years instead, and the entries for episodes are without season/episode numbers directly in the list; if I select an episode, then click OK, the info shows season/episode number. Rather weird.

Mini can't see DVR

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 02/28/2015 - 21:07
I have the 4-tuner Roamio. I have two moca adapters, one is on the cable modem and the other is on the Roamio. I know the moca is working because the DVR and the mini can connect to the internet and to Tivo but for whatever reason, the mini keeps saying it can't find a DVR.

Any suggestions?
