Arrow "Broken Dolls" 10/23/2013

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 10/25/2013 - 08:48
Looks like he's going to be called The Arrow from now on. I'd still prefer Green Arrow but anything's better than The Hood or The Vigilante.

Laurel's father was standing five feet from The Arrow for about half the show and he still couldn't figure out it's Oliver.

Would I know who the blonde woman hero is if I read the comics?

New TiVo Remote On The Way

Zatz Not Funny! - Fri, 10/25/2013 - 06:30

By way of the FCC (1, 2), we’ve learned a new TiVo remote and RF USB dongle are on the way. While the rear looks quite similar to the new TiVo Roamio remote, due to a short term confidentiality request, we’re unable to confirm if this is the incoming Roamio Slide with QWERTY keyboard or [...]

Recordings will not resume after Restart/Reboot

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Fri, 10/25/2013 - 03:11
I am seeing a strange behavior on my Roamio Pro and wonder if anyone else can reproduce it. I am wondering if it might be related to the Cisco TA issues, discussed in this thread: http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb...d.php?t=509579

If I have recordings in progress and I reboot or restart, the recordings do not resume after the Roamio completes it's restart.

I also get an odd message in History that I do not recall seeing before in the Premiere.
The message is Not Recorded - "Problem Getting Tuner"

Can anyone reproduce this, especially anyone with a Cisco TA?

Tivo.com Support - 404 Error

Support.tivo.com only returns 404 error. This is a perfect description of what Tivo has become.

Download to iPad broken?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 10/24/2013 - 23:03
Did the download feature of the TiVo app get broken with the latest TiVo streaming update?

I was previously able to download hour-long, HD TV shows in near real-time without difficulty. Now, it's downloading very low quality, and times-out numerous times while struggling to download a show.

Is anyone else having this problem?

Is there a aaa TIVO Roamio User Guide? PDf?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 10/24/2013 - 21:35
The Roamio did not come with operating instructions. Is there a user guide I can download?

I used to have the series 3 but there are some interface differences.

For example

.. Some of the title on season pass manager list are in a white font and a few are a dimmer gray. What does that mean?

.under "my shows", what does the red circle to the left of a title mean? What about a green dot? A blue dot?

Where can I find this info!



Can't connect to Netflix... anyone else?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 10/24/2013 - 20:47
Anyone else having problems streaming Netflix tonight? I'm not able to connect via TiVo, although connecting from my computer works fine. I've tried rebooting the TiVo and disconnecting the Netflix account; now when I try to re-connect Netflix I get the same error about not being able to connect.

Anyone else?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 10/24/2013 - 20:24
I have been using tivoplaylist successfully for years. 2 days ago it appeared to crash and it dissappeared and my virus software said it had a virus. i reinstalled it after turning my virus software off. Successfully transferred a show and then turned off my computer. I turned it back on the next day opened tivoplaylist and it crashed with the same virus message. I am using avast as my antivirus program. Has anyone had the same problem???? could it all of a sudden have a virus???? I am currently using tivo desktop but it is so slow.

Cellular stream work around

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 10/24/2013 - 17:45
I wanted to report on the capabilities of the OOH stream on just a cellular connection.

While you cannot initiate a direct stream over a cellular connection, you can start a download and begin watching after just a few moments.

Pretty cool:

Start a recording -> initiate a download to your IOS device -> start watching

So while we are waiting for Apple to approve streaming for LTE connected devices, TiVo has given us a very robust work around that gives full functionality when on the road!

Record from current time

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 10/24/2013 - 17:36
Sometimes I am watching a currently airing show and something comes up and I need to leave.
If I press record this episode, it includes the previous 30 minutes and makes it more difficult to find the point I left off.
I have gotten into the habit of changing the channel and then coming back to clear out the buffer so the 30 minutes is no longer included, but I was curious if Tivo already had a way to record without the 30 minutes.


Trim and rename Recordings

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 10/24/2013 - 17:29
I would like to be able to trim a video on the Tivo without having to use a computer.
Periodically I see something that I want to save for later and press record.
However, it saves the prior 30 minutes also. I need just a few of the minutes that I just watched.
If I could later trim the beginning off so that the snippet begins at the point I want to watch.
It's not so much the space but not having to FF through the program to find the spot I want to watch.

Renaming these snippets would also be nice so I know what they are later.

I do not know if anyone cares but on Oct 29 on TLC at 9PM the show returns. I only live down the street from them, so my wife likes the show. I like seeing the places they go that we also go to. :-)

Best Android app to control a TiVo?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 10/24/2013 - 14:13
In the Google Play store I see the TiVo app, DVR Commander by Anthony Lieuallen, and Network Remote for Tivo by Matthew Kennedy. I have a Roamio Basic if it matters.

MoCa for this dummy

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 10/24/2013 - 14:01
I have the base four tuner Roamio than I connect to our network wirelessly with a N level router. The connection works well enough, but not perfectly. While I can always get HD on Netflix, youtube usually looks terrible, and TiVo service search results often run into extended sessions with the good old wheel of patience. None of this is a huge deal on its own, but all too frequently, probably daily on average, I get the C133 error and need to unplug and replug my router. Using Ethernet cords is not preferable to just simply dealing with these problems so we have left the situation well enough alone.

Is MoCa? I know next to nothing about the tech, but the little I have read seems like sorcery. I buy one and suddenly the cable in my wall also transmits internet? This is witchcraft. Could someone explain to me what exactly I'd need to buy and how I would hook it up? Also, what are the pros and cons? Thank you.

IR Adapter

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 10/24/2013 - 13:45
I bought the IR Adapter for my Series 3. I want to put the tivo in an equipment closet. The Tivo website said that it would work on any unit that has a USB port. Tivo technical service also said that it should work since I have a USB port. The adapter doesn't work, though. A red light in the adapter flashes everytime I push a button on my remote, but the tivo doesn't respond. The instructions also say that the adapter is for a Series 4 (I didn't have that info until I got the actual unit). So, I'm guessing that the Series 3 software simply doesn't support the IR adapter. Has anyone had success with it?

Revolution - 10/23/2013

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 10/24/2013 - 13:21
This show is starting to remind me of Jericho.

Season one, hardships, no power, rebuild slowly after nukes, no food, everything closed, food stolen

Then Season 2, 'Jericho is on the fasttrack', US Army comes in, power restored and the restaurant is serving beer and hamburgers within first 20 minutes of S02E01

The difference is Revolution season 2 has completely removed itself from its season 1 premise. Power, restore power, rebuild society. Season 2 has turned into a them vs us war/violence show

TIVO.COM Login slow or times out!

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 10/24/2013 - 12:02
This happens more and more. I do not know why, but the tivo.com login is slow and often times out. Even if it does connect, changing tivo's (we have 3) can take a long time, and trying to add a show or series online is even slower.

Am I the only one to notice that it is happening more and more lately? I can not even log on this morning!

TiVo not recording FXX shows

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 10/24/2013 - 11:58
How can I record the FXX shows?

As we know, shows like the League and It's always Sunny in Philidelphia have moved to FXX.

I adjusted my season pass and it did not record. I confirmed there were no conflicts and delete and reset that pass, but it didn't record again. I'm about 6 weeks in and nothing we've done, including power cycling everything has helped.

FXX is shown on my guide as channel 725 so I set it to record, but when I view the pass, it defaults that record to channel 5 and never records anything.

At this point, we planning on getting rid of the TiVo and going with something like Hulu. The channel change isn't TiVo's fault, but my friends and neighbors with regular Comcast DVR's have no trouble recording these same shows.

Thanks for any help or suggestions!

Roamio, Comcast Chicago VoD and Mini MoCA questions

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 10/24/2013 - 10:46
Right now I have two TiVo HD units going, one in the front room and one in the bedroom.

From what I can see, I think replacing the front room DVR with the Roamio and putting a Mini in the bedroom would be ideal. However, I have a couple of questions about networking...

I see the new TiVo units support MoCA, but the brief reading on TiVo.com I did didn't exactly answer my question. I THINK this means that I no longer have to have either Ethernet or Wi-Fi going between the Roamio and the Mini. True? I had Comcast out yesterday to move an outlet and was pinging the tech on MoCA and he could only relate to their X1 DVRs, but he stated that even though I'm in a condo, our cable is wired "per unit" and a MoCA filter could be put on our connection to filter out MoCA traffic from adjacent units. Does either TiVo unit come with a MoCA filter?

Secondly, does anyone know if Comcast VOD on the TiVo is supported in Chicagoland yet? Specifically, out of the Comcast Romeoville head end? Is VoD usable on the Mini if it's slaved off of the Roamio?
