FIOS lineup change

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 07/24/2014 - 05:46
Don't know if this applies out of the MD/DC/VA metro market or not, but FIOS is moving some channels around. This may affect any Season Passes you have set up for these channel numbers.

tivo hd with comcast planned upgrade to hdtv

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 07/24/2014 - 04:43
Maybe I'm having a senior moment(s) ?

I just purchased my first HD tv.
I have a TiVo HD unit with a Comcast cablecard, since 2009.

Currently, I can record Comcast HD channels and watch them on my non HD tv.
Will I get TRUE HD from my TiVo HD unit to my new HDTV ?
Comcast says I need to upgrade to HD service.
But I think I have HD through my Tivo HD unit ?

Will an upgrade to HD service from Comcast require a new cablecard ? A simple switch at the Comcast home office ?

Why pay approx. 10/mth more if I get HD quality through the TiVo HD unit

Incomplete Download from Tivo Series 4 to Windows 8

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 07/23/2014 - 21:43
Sometimes I am getting incomplete downloads from my series 4 to Windows 8. Most of the time, there isn't a problem downloading TV shows or movies. But intermittently there is a movie or show that will not download completely. I get partial downloads.

I have tried to transfer to another tivo box and then download from there, but i get the same incomplete file.

The show is fine when I play it on the tivo box.

Has anyone else had this issue AND have a solution?

Thanks for your help.

Extant/Amazon Prime question

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 07/23/2014 - 21:23
Does anyone know how long it takes for a new ep to show up on Prime?

I'm without my DVR, and I fell asleep during most of this one.

(Yeah, I debated whether to post here or in Happy Hour).

Forensic Files on CNN

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 07/23/2014 - 19:52
Forensic Files on CNN have actually been recording the coverage of the MH17 plane shoot-down, even though it still shows the guide data for the episodes. So episodes may not be recorded when they are actually aired again. (The last actual episodes I recorded were from Thurs 7/17).

Tivo Roamio guide help

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 07/23/2014 - 19:45
I have three Visio TVs with a OTA. I have one that is in the living room hooked up to the tivo roamio. I have 43 channels that come in good but maybe only half them have info on the guide. I have tried forcing the connection but that hasn't worked. I have this same set up for about five months and still the same. My only problem is on my other TVs that is just hooked up to the antenna will show all the info on the show and channels that won't on the tivo. So that tells me that they are available. I am just wondering if there is something that I am not doing. I would appreciate any help. Thanks

Audio Problem

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 07/23/2014 - 18:14

I'm having audio problems whit my TiVo HD. I previously had problems with the picture freezing and I replaced all of the capacitors on the PS with the help of the tutorial here at TC.

Now I have no audio sometimes at half of my channels and I know that it's not my source because I have OTA and I put the input on my TV and I did have audio.

Any Thoughts ?


Is Tivo Forcing Recordings?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 07/23/2014 - 15:49
I've had a Tivo for 2 years, and I have it set to only record shows that I want it to record. Lately it keeps recording Bill O'reilly. I have No season pass for Bill O'reilly and I have No wishlist for Bill O'reilly. When I look in my "To Do" list, it is never scheduled to record. However every day it show up recorded . I'm the only one using this Tivo. So, I can't understand why it keeps recording.

Amazon video download no longer available for Roamio's

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 07/23/2014 - 11:54
Amazon has removed support for downloading videos to Roamio's, though you can still download to Premiere's and older HD's and Series 3. I'm not sure when this happened but as of now us Roamio owners are out of luck. I'm trying to get a refund for 2 videos I purchased only to find that I can no longer download to my Roamio.

House passes STELA, ends Cablecard integration requirement

Hasn't passed Senate yet so no telling what the final form will be, but removes the requirement that cableCos have to eat their own dog food (or crap if you prefer). Cards, that is.

TiVo and Comcast HD Technology Fee

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 07/23/2014 - 11:42
I picked up an HD DTA for a new bedroom TV yesterday. After I activated the DTA, I only received standard definition channels. When I contacted Comcast, they told me I would have to pay a $10 monthly HD Technology Fee to receive HD channels on my bedroom TV. They told me that I have to pay this fee because I don't have a standard Comcast cable box.

My primary box is a TiVo Roamio with a CableCard. Must I really pay an additional $10 fee just to receive HD on a second TV? This policy seems like little more than a blatant money grab from Comcast. Have any TiVo owners had any luck getting this fee waived? Thanks for any help you can provide. Thanks.

Arris Cable Partners Deploy Slingbox Streaming

Zatz Not Funny! - Wed, 07/23/2014 - 11:12
The Sling-powered Arris MS4000 media streamer has found its first home(s). Regional cable providers Comporium and Service Electric are now offering up these transcoding boxes to their customers for both in-home and mobile streaming. Ideally, this sort of service is resident within one’s DVR, à la TiVo Roamio or DISH Hopper, but this accessory provides an efficient way to retrofit existing Moxi Whole […]

Something actually happening on TiVo Developer Channel

Something is actually happening for "TiVo Developer Channel" web page:

I had to sign in to actually see something and there's a section called "Interactive I/O Docs" only visible after logging in. Not sure I understand exactly what it's all about but maybe someone with time on their hands can explore some more.

Tivo Video Player Native App?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 07/23/2014 - 09:59
I'm just new to Tivo and have the simple question about a Native App inside Tivo. Are developers allow to create an app that plays videos? Either internally or on your the network.

I just think that this route of using your pc and installing third party products is not ideal. For example I have a WD Live streamer that plays everything on a share or external HD.

TiVo's remote 1-2 switch

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 07/23/2014 - 09:05
Hello folks,

I have a sport bar like setup with 4 Seires 2 boxes, and use 2 remotes: one setup as addresses 1 and 2, and the other as addresses 3 and 4.

Now I bought another remote and try to set it up as 1 and 2, so that I could have 2 remotes that would control the same boxes 1 and 2. And because I already have the boxes set up properly, I only tried to setup the remotes, so I drove away from home and setup remotes by pressing TiVo+Pause and so on. It doesn't seem to work. It just sporadically works on both boxes with either switch positions, solooks like a mess.

My question is - was that my mistake that I tried to setup only the remote? Should I do the full setup like plug off other boxes, etc? Or the remote I bought is defective?
