Suggestion Option is missing

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 10/15/2014 - 16:37
I recently upgraded to a Tivo Roamio Plus, and two Mini's. Everything is working great, but I noticed that the Suggestions section is blank. I've rated tons of shows, but nothing. Early on I did set it to not record suggestions but I didn't think this would stop it from at least populating the Suggestions section. So I decide to go check the setting and, there is none. Made sure I was looking in the right place, etc.. I have done a restart, and a clear suggestions reset, to no avail.

Has this happened to anyone else, I did a search and came up empty (other than alot of hatred to auto recording of suggestions).

Appreciate the help!

AARGH!

frontline - the trouble with antibiotics (se33 ep1 oad 10/14/2014)

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 10/15/2014 - 16:36
two stories, the first on farming, the second a short follow-up to last year's show about the drug-resistant bacteria outbreak within the nih (ebola is saturating media coverage, and i wanted to see this frontline get some attention).

when i was a kid, we raised grass-fed, free range black angus for slaughter, and routinely gave the entire healthy herd antibiotics (any sick cattle were segregated from the heard and treated separately, very rare). i never thought to ask why, but now suspect we were using the antibiotics to increase the weight of the cattle before sale, which has been common since the 40's & 50's. we also supplemented their diet with special feed for 6 weeks to promote weight gain.

this show details the fda's attempts to warn us about drug resistant antibiotics 40 years ago, when cattle and pharma lobbies were able to immediately shut down the discussion in congress. it appears the drug resistance, number of infections, and number of resistant bacteria have only gotten worse, and the fda still hasn't taken any significant steps to document the issues in order to address the problem since their failure in the 70's. what will it take for the fda to take steps in order to re-focus attention on this issue?

Moing Seaon Passes?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 10/15/2014 - 15:19
Nothing seems to pop out in a search. I'm sure I've seen discussions in the past but now that a new device will be arriving Monday... Is there any way to move Season Passes between devices or do I have to manually set them all up again?

Thanks in advance.

"Box Not Found" error when launching Netflix from Android

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 10/15/2014 - 13:22
I have a Roamio Plus and a Premiere XL (2 tuner). Both are on the same network, both can stream video to Android, both can be controlled by the Android app's web remote, both can run Netflix when launched directly from the TiVo.

When I use the new Android app to search for a program that's available on Netflix (e.g. "The Croods"), it gives the option to "Get From" and I can select "Netflix". When I try to launch it on the Premiere, it starts Netflix on the Premiere. When I try to launch it on the Roamio Plus, the Android app returns the error message "Box Not Found."

Has anyone else experienced this? The problem started with the updated Tivo app with streaming support (2.0.0) for Android. I've tried contacting TiVo support, but they claim this is "expected behavior."

Interested in Premiere for Comcast and OTA

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 10/15/2014 - 12:27
I have an external HD antenna and would like to get a Comcast TV product and a DVR product that can use both sources. The 2 tuner TiVo premiere is the only product I've found that does this. I'm interested in reviews from users that routinely use OTA and cable card sources. Does the program guide make this easy? Will the OTA picture quality be similar to using the antenna directly?

HBO streaming!

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 10/15/2014 - 11:58
HBO has just announced they'll do something a lot like HBO GO next year but open it up for anyone, not just existing cable customers. Clearly this means TiVo really really needs an app for this.

kmttg issues

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 10/15/2014 - 11:55
Just recently my shows have been getting fully downloaded from the tivo but when all the converting is done, I end up with 7min shows. I'm running version 1.1d. Tried running the downloads manually (i.e. not thru service) with the results. When I watch the shows on my TIVO later, no signs of pixelation or cuts in the video to think of any issues with the recording. Any ideas?

Roamio basic - cable card or OTA antenna, not both?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 10/15/2014 - 11:12
I just installed an external antenna and like having access to the local broadcast TV. I would like to get a DVR box that could handle 2 sources: comcast cable card and OTA.
Is such a product available anywhere?

Big Bang Theory Season Pass quit functioning

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 10/15/2014 - 08:45
I just got my Roamio and setup a pass for The Big Bang Theory and noticed that the episode this week didn't record.

I looked at the season pass, and it was set to the correct channel and new only... I deleted the pass and set it up again and now the episodes upcoming are listed.

Any ideas why that could have happened?


Luckily we have Comcast VOD so we were able to watch, but a very unhappy wife.

It's dead

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 10/15/2014 - 08:08
So my RCA DVR 80 dies yesterday and was able to set up a new TIVO yesterday. Not happy about the new remote not being able to control our OTA TIVO. Don't like the fact that there is no " save to VCR" option, but will try to transfer by playing to my DVD.
Is there any way to recover the content from the dead TIVO? It wasn't responding to any input form either the remote or buttons on the front.

M60 Errors

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 10/15/2014 - 07:34
I have 2 Premieres, one purchased in 2010, the other last year. During the last month, each of them has spontaneously lost all Guide data usually accompanied by a M60 Error message [All Show Data has run out. Connect to TiVo service - blah, blah, blah]. This has happened more than once on each box. When this happens, all program data in the Guide shows "To Be Announced". However, Channel Banners do show name of show in progress, and name of next show. Shows continue to be recorded. In every case, the TiVo Status shows that a successful connection had been made to the TiVo service within the last 24 hours. In fact, forcing a connection does not cure the problem. The only cure is to restart the TiVo. After restart the Guide data re-appears for next 14 days. In one case, I'd actually perused the Guide an hour before this error had occurred, for a program a week in the future, and all the Guide data was there. An hour later the TiVo popped up this error message, and all the Guide data had disappeared.
If this had happened on just one box, I would have thought it was a problem particular to that box. But since it has happened multiple times on both, it has to be something else. Any suggestions?

The Flash S01E02 OAD 10-14-14 "Fastest Man Alive" SPOILERS

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 10/14/2014 - 22:35
Pretty strong follow up to the Pilot.

What always bugs me about heroes or villains with the power to replicate themselves is that they are able to replicate their clothes also. Guess his suit must have been a special "embryonic jumpsuit."

That aside I liked almost everything about this episode. From Barry's unrequited love for Iris to his relationship with Joe and also the super-hero support squad.

And the now-we-know-he's-a-bad-guy Dr. Harrison Wells. Certainly didn't expect him to shove a knife in the gut of the victim of the week. He's so perfect as a big bad because he's so likable otherwise. Well, we don't KNOW he's the big bad because his motivation seems to protect Barry. But to what end?

Highlights for me: Telling Iris he loves her at super-speed... getting it off his chest but without the risk of rejection. :)

Overshooting the fire by six blocks.

Heartfelt apology to Joe.

I have high hopes for this series.

Oh, and that stupid yellow lightning mask transition is beginning to irritate me.

No s-video on Roamio?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 10/14/2014 - 22:01
Am I missing something, or does the Roamio not have an s-video output?

I have a new Roamio, and an old Mitsubishi rear-projection 50+ inch screen--which is too old for hdmi. Composite gives a horrible picture on this; I'll have to see what component does . . .

I'd been planning on a really big screen come the superbowl sales.

Is there still a 30 second "commercial" skip in Roamio?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 10/14/2014 - 21:34
I tried a search on "30 second" and did not find anything.

Does the Roamio support the 30 second skip trick that earlier Tivo's had? Is so, anyone have the steps necessary to implement it?

Thanks in advance.

As along as I'm asking....

anything else about a Roamio versus the 3-x (and earlier model) I've got that I might want to know? I guess I realize that it does not have the informative front panel display about what is recording.

Free to good home - TiVo HD (you must collect)

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 10/14/2014 - 18:32
TiVo HD in perfect condition. No service. Free to the first person who can come pick it up in Redwood City CA. Break it for spares, or buy service for it. If no-one takes it, it gets recycled.

Please don't waste your time and mine by asking me to do anything that would take more effort than answering the door and handing it to you.

Scorpion S01E04 OAD 10/13/2014 "Shorthanded"

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 10/14/2014 - 17:18
A place to point out the plot howlers and such from the latest Scorpion. Like how dudes can just bring machine guns into Vegas casinos.

I had to look up one of the guest stars - I recognized Corbin Bernsen since he's been in Psych recently, but I had to look up the blackjack dealer who got fired -- it was Chris Mulkey who was on Bakersfield P.D. many years ago. And, having just looked it up, he was also on Twin Peaks.

I want to like this show more, but it's like they're trying to make the point that geniuses can't ever have normal lives - geniuses are so bad at social stuff that they need a "life translator" like Paige. Walter, who is portrayed as the most "normal" of the geniuses, wouldn't say "fire that dealer" in the presence of the dealer, and he wouldn't be so dumb as to try to represent himself in court.
