Video on Demand Dead - after HDD Upgrade

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 10/13/2013 - 21:10

I have two original Tivo S3's. The first one's HDD died two years ago; I upgraded it with a WeaKnees kit.

The second one's HDD died recently, so I did the same thing. But now, on the one I upgraded today, I have no 'Video on Demand.' When I click that line on Tivo Central, the screen changes, then comes right back to Tivo Central.

Same thing happens if I go into the 'Now Playing List' and choose Netflix...screen changes, then returns without actually going to Netflix.

Everything else is working fine. I can transfer programs from the other S3, play back shows, etc.

On my other S3, connected to the same network, sitting side-by-side with the one having problems, it's fine. Shows the whole VOD page, with my options like Amazon, Netflix, etc.

Both are connected with CAT5 ethernet...not wifi.

Is there a setting I missed?


Netflix error UI-113

For first time tonight Netflix stopped working on my Roamio. I get an error code UI-113 each time. Netflix works on all my other devices on my network. It has to be something with Roamio. Can I reinstall Netflix app? No idea what do to.

The Walking Dead - S04E01 - 10/13/13

Glad it's back, but this show is really difficult to watch live.
The freaking commercials during this show are killing me. I can barely tolerate the Walking Dead. The commercials are way scarier. Make them stop!!!

Roamio with Cox in PHX?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 10/13/2013 - 20:06
Does anyone know if the Roamio streaming features work with HD channels with Cox in Phoenix?

My Series 3 just died and I'm considering a Roamio to replace it, but /i believe Cox broadcast flags pretty much all HD in Phoenix, breaking every feature beyond basic recording.

But perhaps something changed, so doesn't hurt to ask.

Well that really sucked. They never made it out of the airport.


I was really hoping for a non-elimination leg.

Tivo: Failed while negotiating

Anyone else seeing this tonight?
It's not a local network thing, AFAIK. Last successful update was at 5:34 pm CST, and nothing's changed at all since then, yet both Tivos are now reporting 'failed while negotiating', 'unrecoverable error' when trying to connect to the Tivo Service?

Amazing Race missing first 11 minutes

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 10/13/2013 - 19:50
Roamio Pro. I have SP for 60 Minutes and TAR. Since I have 6 tuners, I set 60 Minutes with a 1 minute before and 30 minute after pad. I set TAR up for 1 minute before and 90 minutes after pad. Football ran over, so I started watching 60 Minutes 11 minutes after it started. After watching 60 Minutes, I deleted the show, and went to my recorded shows, TAR didn't show up. I hit the Tivo button and went back to my recorded shows and TAR appeared, showing it was recording. I selected to watch and I'm missing 11 minutes. I'm pissed because I bought the Roamio to resolve conflicts, not to fail to record shows. This is the first time this has happened to me on the Roamio, or on a Tivo.. It does appear that the Roamio rebooted recently, as I had to scroll down to get to CC last Friday.

I mentioned this has happen to me first time on a Tivo. Back in Survivor season 2 my Replay TV failed to record an episode. I bought a series 2 Tivo and started recording Survivor on both DVRs.

Sort by date not working here.

nfl football at the bottom? Paging down and there's another 5 or so shows from 10/13, after the older ones.

I thought I got bit by the failure to record before I saw it in the wrong spot. It should be showing up at the top.

Hi Guys,

Anyone else having an outage right now? I am getting a C133.

Losing audio after switching HDMI

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 10/13/2013 - 17:07
I just got a Roamio Pro and after a few glitches that have been resolved (first Roamio was DOA and had to exchange it, and problems with pairing the CableCard) I'm having issues with the HDMI audio. My TV has only one HDMI input so I am using an 4-port HDMI switcher (from Monoprice) to switch between HDMI inputs. When I switch back to the Roamio I lose audio. The only way to restore it is to unplug and plug back in the HDMI cable on the Roamio, but when I switch away and back to the Roamio, I'll lose audio again. My Series 3 Tivo plugged into the same switch has no problem. I haven't yet done any testing yet so does anyone have any ideas what to check? Could it be the HDMI cable (I've used it before with an Apple TV with no problem) or the switch itself? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

(As as side note, when I returned the first Roamio to Best Buy, I asked if it would be returned to Tivo. I was told no, that it would actually be destroyed! This seems like such a waste, as the problem was probably just a lose power cable inside. I was told HP does the same thing - if a computer is returned that doesn't work, it is destroyed instead of being sent back to the factory and refurbished.)

CW and Time Warner Cable

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 10/13/2013 - 16:53
I live in upstate NY and I'm just noticing that I don't get the CW. I guess I've never tried to watch anything on it before. What gives? Wiki says 95% of the country gets it now. Is it because there is no affiliate covering the area (Adirondacks) or am I missing something?

This sounds like a winner!

Quote: After spending four seasons of Breaking Bad trying to evade law enforcement, Bob Odenkirk will switch sides for FX’s Fargo.

The comedian has boarded the ten-part limited series in a supporting role, along with Glenn Howerton (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), Kate Walsh (Private Practice), Joey King (The Conjuring), Adam Goldberg, Oliver Platt, and more.

SNL (10/12/13) - Bruce Willis/Katy Perry

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 10/13/2013 - 13:20
I liked the opening tying in the new movie "Gravity" to the govt. shutdown of NASA.

Other than that, I felt that Taran Killam gave the strongest performances throughout the show, which was otherwise pretty much a snooze-fest.

Kate McKinnon is great as European characters, and the short film featuring mostly new cast was weak.

I liked the new guy on the Weekend Update talking about his bad tattoo decisions.

I can hardly recall anything else about this episode other than Katy Perry's performances which I enjoyed.

The Slingbox 350 Giveaway

The current generation of Slingboxes arrived about one year ago and, now that I’ve finally begun organizing my gadget laboratory, we’re ready to pass along one of our two review units. Besides the questionable aesthetics, what sets apart the Slingbox 350 and 500 from prior models is the ability to stream in true HD and direct […]

Roamio with basic cable channels

I'm looking to buy a new Roamio and would like to make sure I'd be able to get my basic cable channels from Time Warner Cable when directly connecting the Tivo to the cable outlet WITHOUT tunning adapter or cable card. Thanks.

EPIX schedule is wrong

I noticed that EPIX-HD is showing something and the TiVo guide is showing something altogether different.

zap2it.com matches TiVo, while tvguide.com's guide matches what is actually on.

TiVo Roamio Pro - My Bugs So Far

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 10/12/2013 - 21:57
I've had the TiVo Roamio Pro running for about a week now. It's a great box, love the 6 tuners and faster speed. However, there are some bugs that are driving me crazy. Here's my list so far:

1. Poor IR sensitivity - others have reported this. I have to point my Harmony remote straight at the Roamio Pro to get it to consistently pickup. the sensitivity is much less than my Premiere XL.

2. No Recordings due to "No Signal" - twice so far the Roamio Pro has not recorded shows on ABC, Once Upon a Time and Last Man Standing. If you look at the history it says Not Recorded due to "No Signal". This is very odd and a problem I never had with the Premiere XL. FYI, I have TWC in Raleigh. ABC is WTVD on channel 1111. Once Upon a Time is my wife's favorite show and she's ready to throw the Roamio out the window...

3. Roamio Pro not seen by TiVo Desktop - The first time I started TiVo Desktop it correctly saw the Roamio Pro, let me setup auto-transfers and transferred records. Since then TiVo Desktop refuses to see the Roamio Pro at all. Others have reported the same problem in other threads and apparently TiVo has acknowledged that this is a bug that will require an updated TiVo Desktop client. Please don't keep us waiting long TiVo, you have a bad history of waiting a LONG time between TiVo Desktop releases. At least TiVo Desktop still works just fine with my old Series 2s.

4. Shows transferred from other Premiere XL can't be set to "Keep Until I Delete" - I transferred most all of my shows from my Premiere XL and some won't accept "Keep Until I Delete" no matter how many times I try. No idea why.

5. Shows transferred from Series 2 will jump when fast forwarding - I transferred a show from my Series 2. While fast forwarding a 60 minute show the TiVo suddenly jumped from 8 minutes to 53 minutes for no reason.

I hope fixes for all of these issues are in the works. At least for all of the software issues, I suspect there isn't a fix for the IR issue.

moca setup

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sat, 10/12/2013 - 21:00
I just received a MoCA setup from Tivo. I have the Roamio and a Premier Elite. I have my computer and Comcast Arrisy modem (wifi enabled modem) in my office and my two tivos in my bedroom. The one I am starting with to set up is the Elite Tivo.

I hooked up the MoCA to my Xfinity Arris Modem with one yellow Ethernet to my modem and the other end to the MoCA. Hooked my cable from wall into the in port on the MoCA and the cable that came with the MoCA one end to the out port to the cable outlet on Comcast modem.

My internet and phones work fine but when I go to change to MoCA on my Tivo it says unable to connect. Tivo is closed right now so I can't call them so I am hoping someone out there can assist me in setting this dang thing up.

Thank you so much. Debbie Z
