Roamio Basic internal temperature

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 09/13/2013 - 21:06
Does anyone know what the internal temperature should be in the Roamio? Mine is reporting 45 degrees Celsius, while my premieres are in the 30's. I was moving the Roamio and noticed the right side was very warm to the touch.

Different internet / video provider

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 09/13/2013 - 19:39
My dad has Cox video and FIOS internet - for various reasons. The Premiere XL4 has a wireless adaptor to FIOS. Can I install the Moca adaptors between this XL4 and a Mini - and would the XL4 be smart enough to share video through Moca and still use the wireless adaptor to FIOS for Tivo and guide updates?

Tivo to TiVo Transfer Problems

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 09/13/2013 - 19:19
I jsut replaced a Series 2 with another Series 2. On the one I installed. When I record a shows (I have tried a number of different ones), if I try transferring it to another TIVO, the shows always have a red x next to them and it won't allow the shows to be transferred. I can record the same shows on other TIVOs so it is not a copyright issue, but I am stuck and haven't been able to receive an answere from TIVO support as how to fix the problem.

I would appreciate some help if anyone knows the solution.

New install of pytivo

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 09/13/2013 - 19:17
I am using the older version pytivo from 2009. I trying to use the newer version but I do not understand some of it.
This is what what i have for tivodecode ffmpeg


4. Grab a 32 or 64 bit build of FFmpeg for pyTivo: Recent builds of FFmpeg for Windows are available at: http://ffmpeg.zeranoe.com/builds/. The FFmpeg 1.1 (08-Jan-2013) Static build appears to work well. An older build of FFmpeg known to work well with pyTivo is also available at: http://pytivo.sourceforge.net/forum/download.php?id=323.

5. Copy the ffmpeg.exe file from step 5 to \<install folder>\bin\. If the directory does not exist, create it.

6. To properly handle .tivo files grab the special version of tivodecode: http://pytivo.sourceforge.net/forum/download.php?id=196

7. Drop the tivodecode files into \<install folder>\bin\.

8. If you are using Windows Firewall, add a Windows Firewall exception for UDP 5353 so that Windows won’t block pyTivo’s new zeroconf share announcements. (The most common reason pyTivo shares don’t show up or disappear from the Now Playing list on the Tivo is firewall blockages)

9. Start pyTivo by executing the file \<install folder>\pytivo.py.

10. Now that it's running, point your browser to http://localhost:9032. You should get the pyTivo home page:

what does it mean by this" 9. Start pyTivo by executing the file \<install folder>\pytivo.py."? How do start it I tried run and from a cmd window?

Wire rack perfect fit for Roamio Basic

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 09/13/2013 - 17:46
I wanted to put a bit of space between my Roamio Basic and my Apple TV and HDMI switch.

I found a wire rack that fit it perfectly, a Rubbermaid "1J2609BLA Small Expandable Wire Helpers Shelf".

The rack has two pieces, a rack with 4 legs and an extension with 2 legs and 2 vertical hooks.

I started with the extension. I wanted a "shorty" rack to being the Roamio up about 1" so as to better place the unit behind the cabinet's glass insert. Bending the vertical hooks straight down was simple. I then cut off the legs to the desired height.

Even easier was the upper rack...just snip the legs off to the right length, replace the rubber feet and it was good to go.

FYI...thanks to the forum for the info about upgrading the Roamio to 3TB. It was super simple.

Also, the HDMI switch is a Sabrent ST-HDMI. It works well and its small lights match the ATV's light perfectly. There's even a profile for it in Logitech's Harmony One's devices list.

Favorites Guide vs. My Channels Guide

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 09/13/2013 - 15:46
Does it matter much whether I create a Favorites guide vs. a My Channels guide? Meaning, would creating a Favorites guide influence my TiVo Suggestions folder? I'd rather it not.

MoCA to Ethernet

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 09/13/2013 - 13:02
I have the Roamio and two minis connected over MoCA. In one of the rooms I have a PS3, WD TV Live and an Apple TV. I used to have them connected via Powerline adapter but since now I have MoCA connecting the mini I though maybe I could use the ActionTec to go from MoCA to ethernet by plugging the cable that from the wall to the MoCA Adapter and then the Ethernet cable to an ethernet switch.

Will this kind of setup work?


Does Roamio support dynamic tuner allocation today?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 09/13/2013 - 12:44
I can't find an answer on this. Does the Roamio support dynamic tuner allocation out of the box today or is this coming in the fall update?

I have a Roamio Pro and 1 mini. The mini has taken 1 of the 6 tuners in my Roamio so I assume this feature is not yet available.

I have 2 more mini's to set up and wanted to know the answer before I did hook them up.

New powerline kit; works great with Roamio (Netgear XAVB1004-100NAS)

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 09/13/2013 - 12:30
I know some are having issues with hubs, I was too. I cut the hub out and went back to the 4 port powerline adapter, but as stated below, its ugly. This unit was had for $62 and is working great, looks good too.

Mini review:

I recently got this from Amazon, and like it so far. Since moving around a lot, Ive just kept Netgear XE-104 powerline adapters going, but to be honest they are ugly. Square box in outlet with 4 Ethernet cables coming out in a living room is not the best. I decided to take a look at what was out there on Amazon, and noticed this setup. The black box looks a LOT better sitting on my stand, and the activity lights are very dim and wont be annoying, unlike the other powerline adapters I have that require Lightdims.

Back offers plugs 1 thru 4, and you can see they are color coded for priority. If you have more than one device hogging bandwidth, it'll spread out out with #1 getting the most and #4 getting the least. The other part that's nice is this does not have to be plugged into the wall itself, it has a normal 6ft power cord and can be placed with options. The direct plug in units can be problematic, especially if you are using surge protection with fat plugs.



Bedroom unit at DSL Modem

Roku 3 speed results (got the same with the Vudu app on my Blu-ray player)

For the current Amazon price, I feel it was a good deal and looks a lot better.

The League "The Von Nowzick Wedding" S5E2 - 9/11/13

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 09/13/2013 - 12:25
I thought this episode was MUCH better. I knew that there was no way that wedding was going to happen. I loved how they raided the wrong room and how Ruxin set them up. Taco's little hankie was funny and you just knew that Andre was going to get caught.

Jenny in a bikini was a nice surprise :up:

Can transfer from Premiere to PC, but Premiere doesn't see my PC

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 09/13/2013 - 12:04
Got some weirdness here. I have Tivo desktop software that can transfer a file from my Premiere to my PC for editing, whatever. So I know that they are talking to each other. However, for some bizarre reason, my Premiere cannot see my PC in the network. I cannot recall specifically when it stopped working, but my Streambaby doesn't work now either. Any ideas of things I can check?

Start Your Fall TV Collections!

It is in a bitter-sweet fashion that we say goodbye to summer. That’s right; that means no more days spent reading by the pool under the sun or sporting white seersucker. With fall approaching, kids are going back to school, parents are refocusing on their work, and the undead are littering our streets—well, at least our TiVo. While we will miss the beach, warm nights, and vacation, we can rejoice that fall TV is back! This means shows like The Walking Dead, Boardwalk Empire, Community and Parks and Recreation are Continue Reading

When do Suggestions Kick-In?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 09/13/2013 - 10:28
I've had my new Roamio running for ~24 hours. I've transferred my SPs and recordings from my XL4. I've also applied lots of thumbs-ups and downs while browsing thru the guide...thinking this would get things rolling.

Roamio has not recorded a single suggestion; I have not disable the feature.

Is this a time-based thing? I don't recall a delay on any of my 5 prior TiVos.

What to do first... troubleshoot remote control or finish guided setup?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 09/13/2013 - 10:19
I just hooked up my Moca network and am in the process of setting up the Mini. (My Premiere 4 has been in use OK for about a week). The Mini's remote did not work. My Premiere's remote did work. I used it for one or two page forwards, but have not gone further (it is sitting on "keep automatic settings?" page). I found a long article with peanut troubleshooting tips that I printed out and will try.

But in the meantime, can I continue setup using the other remote?

The reason I ask is because I am wondering if attempting the troubleshooting tips will conflict with guided setup. There's a lot of off and on's in those step.s

Small Victory: Folder Delete Works in Roamio

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 09/13/2013 - 10:17
One of my nagging nits, since like forever, is when you play all programs within a folder (example: CNet Podcasts). Upon playback completion, you cannot simply delete the folder - unless you first disable the preview window -odd.

I just noticed this issue does not exist in the Roamio! Yay!! :)

Thanks TiVo
