Series 3 - stopped working, want to give away

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 09/30/2013 - 22:32
I have a TiVo Series 3 that stopped working. I've replaced it with a Premium XL but not sure what to do with the old box. Can it be parted out? Or should I just send it to the dump?

YouTube / Netflix - DIAL support via iPad ROCKS!

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 09/30/2013 - 22:22
I played with YouTube and Netflix quite a bit tonight and the DIAL integration with the iPad is very cool!

The YouTube app gives a perfect example of what can be done with the HTML5 App Store and integration with the iPad takes something that I never used before to something I will defiantly enjoy playing with.

Multi-Room Streaming not working

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 09/30/2013 - 21:45
I have 2 premieres on the same account and same network, both wired. I went through the help on TiVo's website (there isn't much) and I cant get either of them to stream shows from the other. Mostly I want to be able to do this because some shows are copy protected and I cant transfer them, but I also just want to be cause its supposed to work.

Roamio Losing Channels Intermittent and Hiccups

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 09/30/2013 - 21:03
I'm having a problem with a roamio (4 tuner) where I will intermittently lose channels, Besides not getting the channel if I try to move forward or back and it skips the channel all together. The channels that are lost will be random. My signal strength is 80-90 and I am on comcast with a cisco Scientific Atlanta cablecard (PKM800) with lastest firmware. I have an amplifier and 4 way splitter in house that was installed by comcast. I can get the channels back at times by using Signal Strength under setting. When watching the Roamio we also occasionally get what I call a hiccup where the video freezes for a second with audio loss and then it continues.

My other Tivo HD-XL is working fine without problems.

I'm trying to decide if the problem is due to one of the following:

1. Cablecard
2. Tivo Hardware (Bad Tuners of HD)
3. Comcast Signal

I suspect the problem is the cablecard but the hiccup makes me think it could also be a hard disk problem.

Any suggestions?

new stream fails buffer test, can't stream or download from P4

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 09/30/2013 - 20:36
I went to BB to pick up a Mini (which I'll deal with tomorrow) an couldn't resist the reduced Stream..

Get it home, connect it to my GB switch in my office and fire it up.

TiVo app reloaded on iPad4, it goes thru the stream install all good until it tries a buffer test and fails. App sees the P4 no problem as it can see my shows, iPad can connect to Stream via a browser to see status but it won't stream a thing or download.

rebooted the stream a few times still no go. The P4 is connected to my wireless router which is in AP mode, the office switch is hard wired to that.

Confused...any ideas

Season Pass issues

Alternitive to Premiere Netflix App ??

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 09/30/2013 - 17:04
How does a Roku3 fare as far as an alternative for a Netflix/Amazon Prime app. I'm getting tired of dealing with junk Premiere attempt.

How would it compare to the P5/Mini app ???

It has a 30 day money back guarantee, but if it is known to also be a kludge, it'll save me some time and trouble.

Beyond that, any other solutions ...

The Neighbors Season 2

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 09/30/2013 - 16:40
How is there not a thread for this show yet?
Any show with no laugh track should automatically have a thread!!!

Anyway, through the first two episodes i've had many "have to pause and rewind" moments due to laughing.

Family conference - when little Abbey schooled them all with her debate points (i have a teenager, so the 14th face thing just hit home so hard)
Also, don't forget to pause and read the bios for each person on the screen behind them as they speak, or the family conference rules! ;)

Larry Bird's pranking the Weavers with the aging machine story in Ep2

This show started for me as a "will watch it if i have time", but has turned into one of my favorite 30-minute shows.

Any way to transfer thumbs up/down to new Roamio?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 09/30/2013 - 15:20
Has anything changed to allow the transfer of the thumbs up/down to a new tivo from an existing device? I was able to easily transfer season passes but the new Tivo I'm finding it has no idea me any longer and is recommending stuff I have absolutely no interested in (been giving those recommendations three thumbs down but it is a pain).. Thanks..

TiVo Premier Back(Rewind) button problem

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 09/30/2013 - 15:16
Recently, while watching live tv, I have a problem when pressing the back (rewind) button on the TiVo remote. The program goes to the beginning of the buffer instead of rewinding. This happens only when I'm at the end of the buffer and it doesn't do this every time but it is very aggravating. It happens when I switch from one tuner to the other where I haven't paused play. Has anyone else experienced this issue? I haven't tried any fixes such as rebooting, etc. Thanks for any comments or questions.

Tivo Premiere just died 2 times under extended warranty...trying to get upgraded..

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 09/30/2013 - 13:17
My first TiVo premiere died under a 3 year warranty about 30 days ago. They replaced it with a refurb and now this one is almost dead too. I asked if there was any way to get a new box instead of refurb and they said they would have to upgrade me to the 75 hour premiere and it would cost me an additional $50. Has anyone been offered anything similar or better? I was really hoping I could find a way to get a 4 tuner model instead of the 2 tuner model. Ideas?

Missing channels

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 09/30/2013 - 12:34
I got my Roamio a few weeks ago. After running the setup, I was scrolling though the channels and noticed many missing. I went into the channel menu and found many were not check marked. So I picked all the ones I wanted to add.
Now they show up as unkown for the channel name and no description for the programming. I have done dozens of connect to network and rebooted it too.
How do I get these channels to show up like all the rest?

Recording Interruptus

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 09/30/2013 - 12:14
TiVo was set to record the Motocross of Nations yesterday at 12 noon PST on ch474 CBSSNHD, for a period of 4.5 hours.
Actual program length was 3 hrs; I pad the recording time 1.5 hrs, just in case...

The recording started and then stopped after 20 minutes.
The recording bar showed a 4.5 hour recording but there was nothing after 20 min in.

Adding premium channels: do you need to re-pair cable cards?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 09/30/2013 - 11:05
I replaced my Series 3 OLED model with a Roamio late last month and have been very pleased with the results. I'm now thinking of adding Showtime. Will I need to do anything else besides calling Comcast and signing up for it? That is, will I separately also have to call the CableCARD number and have the cards re-paired? I'm reluctant to alter a setup that is currently working well.

Homeland 9/29/2013

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 09/30/2013 - 10:38
Interesting start. Slow if perhaps on purpose. Saul is a drunk, paralyzed by indecision both personally and professionally. Sells out Carrie. All seem unlike him. Dar Adal is really running the CIA. It took me through half the episode to remember who he is.

Why was CIA running this kill mission? "We're not assassins." Ok, so why wasn't some other branch of the military running it?

The Brody "tape" was leaked to the media, with the obvious implication that it was supposed to be about the Langley bombing, when it was in fact about the suicide vest, which the CIA decided not to tell anybody about. Who is responsible for leaking it? Saul? With the tape out there with that implication, Carrie really does look like a loon saying Brody is innocent. He's right there on tape confessing.

And "find the leak" in the CIA is starting to sound a lot like "find the mole" in CTU.
