Base Roamio + Mini on Fios, need MOCA adapter?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 04/10/2014 - 09:03
I'm looking to buy a base model Roamio and one Mini. I'll have them set up on fios, which I understand creates a MOCA network.

Can I simply plug the coax from the wall to the Mini, and just use ethernet straight from the MOCA router to the Roamio? Or do I need also need to attach the coax to the Roamio via a MOCA adapter?

Im a first time Tivo Owner. My Tivo is recording shows I didnt tell it to record.

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 04/10/2014 - 08:25
Hi. This is my 3rd day with Tivo. The Roamio box started recording movies last night. They didnt appear in "My shows", but about 4 movies had the red recording label next to them on the guide. If I wanted to watch them from he beginning, I could. I came from Comcast DVRs so this is all new to me. Is the Tivo recording shows it thinks I might be interested in? If so, where is it storing them and how do I delete them? I dont want it recording anything I dont tell tell it to record because I have enough to manage without having to delete shows and movies all the time.

If there are already threads on this matter, can someone post a link, please? Not really sure what to search for.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Tony Reali leaving ESPN's PTI for ABC's GMA

Will become GMA's equivalent to Carson Daly and will do Around The Horn from NYC.

I think this will be a bigger loss for PTI than it seems on paper.

iMac and Macbook streaming?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 04/10/2014 - 08:13
Been toying with getting either an iMac or Macbook. Simple question - can both stream from my Roamio using some Tivo App just like I can do with my iPad?

Tablo TV Liberates OTA HDTV (and crushes Simple TV)

Zatz Not Funny! - Thu, 04/10/2014 - 07:06

Lets try this again, shall we? If you caught my first look at the dual tuner Simple TV, you’ll know that the product fell short of my expectations. A combination of fan issues and software instability led me to question if the dual tuner was actually ready for release. The idea for a networked DVR is […]

Virgin TiVo and antenna on same wire

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 04/10/2014 - 07:06
I have two cables coming from outside a black one that screws into my Virgin TiVo box, and a brown coax that comes from my ariel . My tv is on the wall and behind the tv is only one virgin cable that is in the wall and this screws into my virgin box on the wall under the TV all works fine but if I turn off the virgin box I don't have any tv because my aerial is not connected because I only have one wire. Question do they sell something I can connect incoming virgin and incoming antenna to one wire, and something for behind TV to make antenna and virgin box separate wires. Or is there an easy way.

Premiere screen goes blank for 10-15 seconds after deleting show

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 04/10/2014 - 06:09
I am having an issue with Premiere where after I delete a show the screen goes black except for the upper right corner where live TV can be viewed.

It's about 10 seconds where none of the buttons on the remote work, then all of the sudden things start working again.

This seems to be a fairly consistent pattern but only happening with one of my 3 Tivo's.

Is anyone else experiencing this also? If so, is there anything I can do to resolve?

Survivor "Mad Treasure Hunt" 4/9/14 *spoilers*

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 04/10/2014 - 01:31
My recording didn't catch the first segment before the first commercial. Can someone tell me what I missed?

I'm always amazed in those endurance-type challenges when most of the players look like they're in pain and drop out after 15-20 minutes, and then suddenly they show us that another hour passes before the next person drops out. Does that mean that Probst is doing his play by play the entire time? Man, those people must get so sick of hearing him, especially in this situation where he basically only had two players to talk about for over an hour.

When Spencer found the HII and was able to put it down his pants without Kass noticing, why did he then walk away? He should have kept looking and tried to act very frustrated that he hadn't been able to find it yet.

Sorry to see Morgan go (for obvious reasons), but it sure seems like she wasn't very well liked and didn't do much around the camp. Her own alliance didn't seem all that sad to see her go. But that quote at TC was pretty great: "If people could choose to be ugly or cute, most people would choose to be cute." LOL!

SD-DVR80 channel problem

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 04/09/2014 - 19:40
Our old Tivo box is acting up (I think DVR-80s use dog years so ours is
really old). If you watch the signal strength the satellite 1 input is normal
and stable. The satellite 2 input (on about 6 of the 32 transponders) is
cycling on and off. We've done enough troubleshooting to prove it is
inside the DVR-80. I do have some spare parts but I need to know which
circuit area is the probable cause and if someone knows where we can
find a diagram for the box.

Cox Orange County, Ca TV listing incorrect

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 04/09/2014 - 17:41
Hi. Where does Tivo get it's TV Guide data from, currently? Zap2it? Tv Guide?

Our cable company, Cox, changed a few channels (Travel, Food, HGTV - all HD versions) from the east coast to Pacific feeds.

Hence, there's a three-hour error.

Zap2it is showing the correct listings, as is Cox local, set-top box tv guide. Tivo's guide is still showing east-coast, three days since the change.

I removed the channels from Tivo, and then reinserted them, and am re-loading data from Tivo, however, the Tivo listings are still showing the old, east-coast listings.

I talked to Tivo tech support, who claim they get their data from Tribune, and also claim Tribune's listings are incorrect (all other places I've checked are correct...TV Guide, Comcast, Zap2it), so I guess it's just wait and see?

Buying Roku like adding a tuner or 2 to my TiVos

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 04/09/2014 - 16:15
Using the Roku for for streaming HBO Go and Showtime Anytime makes recording these channels on my TiVos unnecessary.
Amazingly, the quality of the Roku streaming is far superior to Time Warner's overly compressed signal on these channels. I can dedicate my Premieres to just recording regular network and cable channels.
If there were commercials, it would probably be different, because mostly the Roku won't let you fast-forward through them, but on these channels there are none, so that's not an issue.
The Roku is a great companion for Tivo.

need a media access key in NZ

Too many great shows. Not enough time.

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 04/09/2014 - 10:13
There is so much great TV available these days that it's completely overwhelming. I have a crazy backlog of shows I want to watch, and my TiVos continue to record new stuff daily. I could literally watch TV 24 hours a day and still never watch everything that I want to. And this is just the stuff that I've recorded off cable. There's also all the great new shows available from Netflix, Amazon, etc ... Not to mention all the great shows that I missed the first time around that are now easily accessible.

It's definitely a great time to be a TV watcher, but it really forces you to pick and choose your shows carefully. :)

Romio and Comcast problems?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 04/09/2014 - 09:52
I recently had Comcast out to my house to try and solve a cable card pairing issue with a Series 3 (another RANT). Anyway, the tech was telling me that they have been having all kinds of problems pairing cable cards with the newer TiVos (assuming he meant Roamio).

He said he just got done trying to pair a cable card for a woman and was unsuccessful. She wound up having to just return the TiVo. He "claims" he doesn't do cable cards that much anymore & people in our area (Atlanta) are just going with the Comcast X1 platform instead.

Is there any truth to this? Is there a Roamio/Comcast cable card issue going on here? If so, any plans to have it fixed (from maybe TiVo)? I was thinking of getting one, but if I have to put up with headaches, I just assume get another TiVo mini and connect it to my current 4-tuner premiere. Things are working great for me with this setup.
