HIMYM "Rehearsal Dinner" OAD 12/2/2013 *spoilers*

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 12/03/2013 - 02:05
Thought this episode was better than some of the more recent eps. It was a good mix of moving stuff forward in the wedding timeline, flashbacks to traditional stories with the gang, and then some surprise and heart at the end.

So now Ted knows about Marshall being a judge and staying in New York. Between that, and meeting the Mother (obviously), it looks like that's going to kill his Chicago plan.

No Marshall this time. Supposedly he's walking to the Inn from where the bus broke down and he's only five miles away. How contrived is that. Like he wouldn't call a taxi or call Ted/Lily and have them find a car to come get him.

Saw Cristin Milioti's name in the credits, so I thought we'd get another scene with the Mother, but then she never showed up. Is she just listed as a regular in the credits for this entire season, even though she's only been in about four episodes?

Roamio Reboot?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 12/02/2013 - 22:39
Tonight the Roamio Plus rebooted by itself while watching live TV and was in the process of recording two shows.

It is on a UPS.

I cannot remember the Premiere doing this in three years of use!

Is this a known issue? Is there a log that will help determine what happened?


Can't remove remote battery cover

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 12/02/2013 - 22:06
This HAS TO be the stupidest post ever = I have the original remote that came with the Series 4 - Premier (I think) remote is dead - I can't for the life of me figure out how the battery cover slides off.

Premiere freezes with 2 recording and 2 following

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 12/02/2013 - 20:01
My wife has had this happen several times. Premiere XL (2 tuner) is recording 2 shows. There are 2 shows that she will be recording directly afterward.

She is watching one of the 2 currently recording shows, but not live, it's delayed so she is ~10-15 minutes behind.

She gets the "do you want to change channels" pop up for the first new show, she says yes, change the channel, then she gets the second pop up, but the menu freezes and she can't select anything. The show continues to play in the background.

Any ideas?

Remote code needed for iLive soundbar.

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 12/02/2013 - 19:13
Me and the wife impulse bought the $35 soundbar that walmart had on Black Thursday lol and I can not get the audio to control from a S2 remote.

It's not the best Soundbar in the world so I didn't expect much, but the speaker on our bedroom lcd are total crap so this one sounds like a dream compared.

None of the codes worked and the auto find mode never responded but it was using mute as key indicator that you were on the right code which worries me seen as the remote will not mute my Lcd speakers using the correct code for it. Holding down on top of the four way control on the S2 remote makes the volume go up so I know the remote has the ability to use it if I had the correct code.

New TV Lineup

When do new TVs usually get released by the manufacturers? It looks like around March/April? Specifically looking at Samsung/Sony ~60" LEDs.

Channels not tunning

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 12/02/2013 - 13:12
I have had my S3 for many years and have had issues with channels not tuning. They will come in as just a black screen. I can usually just use the other tuner and it will come in fine. I bought the new Roamio hoping this would go away but it didn't at first. Comcast just pushed a firmware update out to my cable cards and that fixed the Roamio's issues, but I am still having this same problem on the S3. Is anyone else having this problem?

Will a lifetime Mini work in another home?

A friend wants to test out the Mini in their home. They have a 4 tuner Premiere with lifetime. Will my lifetime Mini work if I take it to their home to test out, or is it a waste of time and energy?

The Good Wife (OAD 12/1/13) "The Decision Tree" (Spoilers)

Wonderful, wonderful episode. One of the best 100th episodes of any series, ever.

Eli Gold's spit-take at the very end of the episode is an instant TV classic. Perfectly timed, perfectly edited.

Roamio Download to iPad

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 12/02/2013 - 09:15
Does anyone here download shows from their Roamio to their iPad from out of home? I'm trying to get an idea of a typical file size for those downloaded shows. Will it be the traditional 6-7GB per HD hour? Or are the files compressed and scaled down significantly to account for the limited space on a tablet? Thanks!

Do the Mini outputs work simultaneously?

I want to output video and audio to my receiver using HDMI while at the same time outputting audio to my whole-house audio distributor using the A/V breakout jack. Do the outputs on the Mini work simultaneously to allow this to work?

Do you own any tv show reference books?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 12/02/2013 - 08:04
I don't mean novels. There are a million Star Trek, Doctor Who etc... novels out there. Not them. I mean coffee table-ish reference guides. I was digging around in the closet yesterday and uncovered the two that I still have.

The first one is: Doctor Who: A Celebration; Two Decades Through Time and Space

The second one is: Deep Space Nine Companion (Star Trek Deep Space Nine)

The title of the Doctor Who book is correct - two decades. I bought that book in 1983 or 84. It covers the first five Doctors. I'm surprised that it was never updated for any of the post-Davison Doctors. Apparently, there a some new copies available.

I never watched Deep Space Nine until it was in syndication but it became my favorite Star Trek franchise.

Wow, I had hopes of Pinky & NoBrain going home!

Instead, it looked like the Afghanimals were going, but NO! It's a non-elim!! Bummer.

I have to give Pinky credit for eating the snake after them all saying what a picky eater she it.

Inserted card is not a viewing card issue after CC FW update

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 12/02/2013 - 07:25
Have two Premieres (2Tuner and 4Tuner), on Optimum with NDS CC's. Both have been working flawlessly for years. Received a FW update on both CC's last night. The P4 CC didn't have any issues - received the update, restarted and all running fine.

Different story with the P2 - the FW update installed, but after the reboot all channels above 13 (or 713 on HD) disappeared. I receive this error message that I've never seen before and haven't read about on this forum - "(25) Inserted card is not a viewing card".

Called Optimum and had a TiVo rep on a 3-way. Had two different Optimum techs on the line trying to pair and re-pair the CC with no luck. 1 1/2 hours wasted last night trying to work it out, with Optimum blaming Tivo and vice versa. Will try with a new CC later tonight. Has anyone else experienced this with the new NDS FW update?

NDS card version is - 3.92.15 Oct 08 2013 18:20:55

Roamio/Mini set-up with Fios question...

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 12/02/2013 - 03:59
Am I wrong to think that with Fios, my set-up is much simpler than the way TIVO explains it?

I'm under the impression that my main box does not need to be in the same room as the router. That it can be connected via Ethernet or Moca. But the Tivo illustrations and wording makes it sound like you need both.

My router right now is in another room, and my plus is working with a simple coaxial. No ethernet. The fios guy was surprised. So when I'm ready to install tivo minis in the other rooms, all I need is to connect the coaxials of those rooms into the Mini, correct? Am I missing something? Are we required to hook up the main box to a router if we want to use Minis? The tivo instructions and this guy's Amazon review is confusing me because they make it sound like you're required to hook up the main box to the router.


I'm correct in assuming it is that simple with Fios, right? Because they install something in our garage, and isn't that the Moca Network Adapter? Or is the Moca network adapter built into the fios router or something? Isn't that the reason why my main box functions with just the coaxial? If I had the Minis in hand, I would test everything myself without asking. But without the minis right now, I'm just anxious for clarification.

Any way to turn off Discovery Bar?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 12/01/2013 - 23:18
The discovery is a major waste of screen space and the items I de-select in Settings keep showing up regardless of being checked or unchecked.

For instance I had everything deselected , except for programs in My Shows. So of course they showed up, but so did New On Demand items. AND the ever irritating ads (bad enough that there are ads in the TiVo Central list, but every screen on the unit doesn't have to get me to buy Charmin products)(someone should really explain to the marketing folks that pushing ads at every single opportunity is not a good way of leaving a good impression on the consuming public).

I can see that some may want to use the Discovery Bar as a reminder of what's available. But I don't, so I'm hoping there's some secret code or setting that will turn it off.

If not, this should definitely be something to add to the next update.
