Wireless built in

Why would Tivo include wireless when they have said it's not fast enough for MRV?

Tivo Service update tonight???

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 09/25/2013 - 21:44
I'm trying to connect to TiVo service to send in some logs for troubleshooting and also email Margret, but when I try to it says:

"Temporarily Unavailable - This option will be unavailable until a scheduled software update occurs at 2am."

Anyone have a clue what this update is? Could it be a long awaited fix for the issues a lot of us are experiencing? I'm about to give up on my Pro but I'd be willing to hang one more day if anyone has any concrete evidence.


Failed recordings, only two minutes long

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 09/25/2013 - 21:32
I have a new Roamio Pro, and have now gotten two failed recordings, both for the same show, New Girl. Everything else is recording fine, but for this show it stopped after two minutes and the recording is just black.

Anyone else see this? Is there anything I can do? My wife so far is very unimpressed with the Roamio because of less than reliable nature of the device compared to our XL.

Revolution - SE02E01 - "Born In The USA"

Strange things are afoot in the air!

Off to a grand start. There seem to be an awful lot of strange acting lightning bugs. And, who are these new "war" gang guys? And, are those people from the Cuba "colony" the real American government or another interested party?

For those who were always criticizing Aaron about his weight, looks like he lost some over the hiatus.

I knew if we gave the writers enough time, they'd figure out a way to bring "living dead" into the series. :eek:


Roamio is on the way... (FanBoy Warning)

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 09/25/2013 - 18:49
Nice... Order placed on Monday, shipped on Tuesday, scheduled delivery is Thursday with the free standard shipping.

As an admitted TiVo fanboy and something of a tech geek, I can't wait for the setup process and the exploration of the new model! I already had Friday off, and now the day off will be even better...

I still remember the day I setup my first one, the first generation Phillips TiVo! To this day, there has been nothing I have ever purchased that had a greater Wow effect than that first TiVo. A new car, an HDTV, Smartphones, computers, GPS's, blah, blah blah.. That original TiVo is still the coolest thing I have ever purchased in my life.

Just sayin!

(still don't like the Roamio name, but whatever)..

How to change replay to 30s skip back?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 09/25/2013 - 18:41
Hi, how can I change the replay button to perform a 30s skip back?

I.e. to make the skip forward and replay buttons behave like skip forward and skip back, with equal amounts of time.


I missed Premiere of S.H.I.E.L.D due to 28 day rule, WTF?????

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 09/25/2013 - 17:43
I previously set up a season pass for the new Marvel Agents of SHIELD. THe process went fine (and I believe I had to bump the priority of the SP to make sure it recorded).

The show was broadcast last night. Around 10:30 I went to watch it. IT WASN'T THERE. I went to Recording History - it skipped it "because it had already been recorded within the last 28 days"...


Actually, I suspect I know what happened - the Marvel show may have some sort of ID code that erroneously mapped to something I already record. Doesn't make it any less painful. I changed the setting to "record everything (incl. duplicates)". But I'm really bummed, and now that much less distrustful of my TivoHD.

Did anyone else experience this? Was there any way to avoid it?

Can't reorder season passes or delete recrodings

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 09/25/2013 - 17:36
Last night, my Roamio got into a state where I couldn't reorder season passes and couldn't delete shows. I restarted it and it worked fine until just now when it has started doing that again. I'm going to restart again right after 7 EDT. Does anyone have any ideas why this may be happening to me all of a sudden?

Trying to setup Soyo TV w/ Mini - can't find remote code that works

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 09/25/2013 - 16:56
I have reviewed the threads regarding the remote codes for a Soyo TV. The one that seemed to work for others is Pronto 0165. I tried all the Pronto codes and none of them worked. I even tried 0165 twice (definition of insanity?!?). :(

Does anyone have any other remote codes that have worked on a Soyo TV that I can try? Thanks in advance!

Amazon Videos on Roamio, but not the Mini?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 09/25/2013 - 16:39
I just recently acquired the Roamio, Roamio Pro, and a couple of Minis. The Roamios have NetFlix, Hulu Plus, and Amazon Instant Video On Demand. But the Minis do not have the Amazon option. Does anyone know why?

When I bought these I thought they all had Amazon (Prime) capabilities, so was disappointed when that option wasn't there on the Minis or Roamios.

Service activation

How long after subscribing to the guides service ($14.99) will it take my roamio plus to activate? It's been several hours since I signed up.

iOS7 not sleeping?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 09/25/2013 - 15:05
I've been using the Stream for over a year now while going to bed. The way it has always worked is if I fall asleep during a show when it gets to the end of that show the TiVo app goes into a state where it allows the iPad to fall asleep. So I wake up in the morning and the screen is off and the iPad is charged.

A few times over the last week, after upgrading to iOS7, I've woke up in the morning with the screen still on, paused on the final frame in the video. This not only means my screen was on a static image for 6+ hours, which can't be good, but it means the iPad doesn't charge because I'm using a 5v iPhone charger in the bedroom and apparently that's not enough for it to charge while the screen is on.

I ran some tests while awake and it's sporadic. Sometimes when it gets to the end of a show it puts up the "delete?" dialog and the iPad falls asleep after 5 minutes. Sometimes it stalls at the end and the iPad never goes to sleep. Doesn't seem to be any pattern as to why either one occurs.

Is anyone else having this problem?

The Goldbergs - Series Premiere

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 09/25/2013 - 13:01
I can see this show becoming a hit with some fine tuning. The cast is great, as is Patton Oswalt as the narrator. The mom cracks me up, as I always loved her character on Reno 911. She appears to have lost a lot of weight since that show left TV. Jeff Garland as the father is my favorite, he can just about say anything and I'll laugh. The grandfather talking to the youngest son about boobs was unexpectedly hilarious. Overall that was about as much as you can expect from a pilot. I look forward to seeing how this show plays out this season. I'm in.

Sheldon Maid

Saw a promo on TBS for Big Bang Theory had Sheldon in a french maids outfit, I thought I had seen every ep never saw that which one is it? The only thing I can think of was in the last minute they have at end, after commercials got cut off in a lot of my recordings.

Submit RSS Video to TiVo

On that page, there's a link at the bottom that says "or submit it to us". Clicking that sends you to here, which generates a 404 error:


So how are we supposed to do that? Anyone know what the true link is there?

CSpire Fiber to the Home

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 09/25/2013 - 10:49

Just heard about this CSpire initiative to bring Gigabit fiber to the home. I really want to know if CSpire will be able to support TiVo's and cablecards. I've asked CSpire and am waiting to see if they'll answer. But I thought I'd ask here in case someone has already gotten an answer.

Fiber at 1Gbps up and down with television/TiVo support would rock!

Samsung Smart Cable Box Launching 11/5 @ $200?

Thanks to a recently uncovered Amazon listing, we now have a bit more detail on Samsung’s upcoming hybrid set-top box that mates digital cable, via CableCARD, with over-the-top Internet apps like Netflix. Sorta like a TiVo. Without a hard drive or DVR capabilities… The curious Samsung solution, first uncovered via FCC filings and later filmed in [...]

Roamio TivoToGo settings

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 09/25/2013 - 09:47
The other night I was trying to stream a show to the Bedroom Roamio and I kept getting an error that said that "This Tivo must be on the same account". I though this message was a little odd since it worked the day before without any glitches. So I logged in to my Tivo account and notice that one of the check boxes was unchecked for "Sharing Video". So I checked the box and saved the setting and did a force check in for the Tivo having the problem. I notice on the Settings page that the Tivo To Go setting was i,i,i,i and after the force check in the Tivo To Go setting changed to a,a,a,i. This was different then my Other Tivo Roamio which was set for a,a,a,a.

I have tried multiple force connections and I still have the settings of a,a,a,i. What does this mean? I can transfer video back and forth from both devices but I can not stream from the Bedroom Tivo. I can however stream from the Living Room Tivo just fine. I have tried rebooting the Bedroom unit twice and still can only transfer. I have even gone back and toggled the settings in my tivo account for "shared video". I am more curious as to why the setting was unchecked in the first place.

If you look at the help page for Tivo it only shows the settings for Tivo To Go as a,a,a but I have a,a,a,i on one and a,a,a,a on the other? Is the Tivo support page wrong here? Has anybody else ran into this problem?

Time Warner & CCI protection byte

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 09/25/2013 - 09:00
I found in the last 48 hours Time Warner in NYC has set CCI protection byte for broadcast channels(CBS, NBC, ABC).

So, I've lost the ability to download shows to my ipad, which I use traveling.

Any suggestions?

Clearly calling Time Warner's customer service number is getting me nowhere.
