Guess TiVo got tired of all the class action forum threads/threats... ;)

Any retention Premier deals now the new boxes are out?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 08/20/2013 - 17:18
I have 2 Premier boxes gathering dusts in the closet. Is there any good deals to re-activate them either monthly or lifetime service?

Upgrade?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 08/20/2013 - 17:15
I'm still a bit confused as to why I should upgrade from my Premiere. Is the Roamio worth upgrading to?

UV collectors sign in here! VUDU / FLIXSTER

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 08/20/2013 - 17:12
I love UltraViolet movies http://www.uvvu.com

I have almost 200 UV movies and watch via Vudu on my Roku for my Projector and with Vudu on my Samsung Evolution Kit. I used to use Flixster on my Google TV which also works very good. I would love to stop using both and instead use Tivo to watch UV movies and get the Tivo Mini. If Tivo had UV support I would sell my Roku / and evolution kit to buy the Mini. I also have two Chromecasts, but they don't support UV movies yet either.

So you have a UV collection and want it on your new TIVO, please respond to this thread and let us know how many movies you have!

Also for people that don't know much about UV, if you want some movies cheap UV is perfect for you. On ebay UV movies - (HDX - blu-ray quality) cost between $4 and $6. which is 3x 4x cheaper than buying digital movies direct from amazon/itunes/or vudu itself. There are even a few online stores you can buy codes from. Another way to get UV movies with new movies, just buy them add the code to your account, then resale the discs. Most of them time you can get 95% of price back for just released movies.

GO TIVO AND GO UV!!! GO TIVO AND GO UV!!! GO TIVO AND GO UV!!!

Plus or Pro?

I think the only difference is the storage 150 hours vs. 450 hours. Is it worth $200?

Has Netflix been fixed yet?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 08/20/2013 - 17:00
Hey all, with Roamio is Netflix working? With Premieres there's an issue that the controls (FF, Rewind, pause) sometimes stop working. When this happens, after the show is over it just shows a blank screen instead of the menu.

The only thing that works is hitting the TiVo button and restarting Netflix. If that doesn't work the TiVo has to be restarted. It's been happening for months.

What does losing THX sound really mean?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 08/20/2013 - 16:46
This device outputs what kind of sound? 5.1 or 7.1?

What does not having THX (upgrading from the Tivo S3) really mean?

Will I notice the sound not being as good as my old Tivo?

Just I have no idea what THX gives you (other than a cool boot up sequence)

Internal and external Streams

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 08/20/2013 - 16:04
Is there a benefit to having an external Stream unit with a Roamio Pro on a network with Premieres? I will have three, possibly four minis.

Not sure I see any benefit to keeping the standalone box in my case.

IR remotes still work?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 08/20/2013 - 15:57
I see that the new Roamio has a RF remote, does this mean I can not use my existing IR Harmony?

IR Support or IR jack on the back of the Roamio

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 08/20/2013 - 15:49
I was wondering if the new S5 is going to support IR commands. I do a lot of custom jobs where we need to setup IR eyes since most of the equipment is racked and hidden away. I know the S5 has a RF remote. I hope that they kept a way to have custom remotes work with it either through IR or custom drivers.

Thanks,
Eric

Still need a tuning adapter?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 08/20/2013 - 15:32
I haven't found anything in the specs... will this box still need a tuning adapter or did they finally build in SDV support?

If the former, they lost me.

Can a Roamio Rebuild a Data Drive from Scratch?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 08/20/2013 - 15:17
The Roamio tivos are the first retail offering to have a built in Flash that houses the "executable" portions of the tivo software (as opposed to the data, e.g. videos, program guide data, etc.)

Presumably, this should allow them to tolerate replacement of the internal hard disk (termed a "data disk") with a blank/new hard disk and be able to boot and rebuild the internal disk.

One would still lose recordings, but at least it would obviate the need for backup images.

I'm wondering if anyone has tested this yet (to confirm that it will rebuild the data disk if provided a new drive) and can say whether or not the tivo will attempt to fully utilize the new drive (potentially to 3GB or beyond).

What do you think of the name Roamio?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 08/20/2013 - 15:16
I'm not on board yet with the name.

I think of Romeo and Juliet every time I say it. And still having a hard time connecting that to watching tv.

And the spelling makes me want to pronounce it differently or makes me think about cellphone roaming or wonder what the bleep someone is talking about.

Anyone not able to get the 399 MSD?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 08/20/2013 - 15:13
I tried calling TiVo because when I added the Roamio Pro to the cart with lifetime service it was coming up at 499. The TiVo rep said that both the TiVo boxes currently on my account have used the MSD in the past to get the lifetime service so I would be unable to use the MSD on a new Roamio. Anyone ever heard of this before? I hung up and said I needed to think about it...

New Roamio Streaming capability vs Slingbox 350

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 08/20/2013 - 14:33
I've been using the Slingbox for years. Just wondering what you guys thought about it vs the future streaming capabilities of the Roamio (outside of your network).

I actually bought a Western Digital Streamer with the Slingbox app and it works pretty good. It's kind of like a Tivo Mini just without the monthly fee and a bit slower. As a result I'm leaning towards the basic Tivo Roamio since I already have that and can watch tivo already through the slingplayer app on my ipad.

DIAL Support

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 08/20/2013 - 13:56
Does anyone know if it is an open standard and will work with any software? Will we be able to use chromecast software to push youtube and netflix videos? And can we pun the chrome browser? If so, this is going to be huge.
