Need More Content

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 08/26/2013 - 22:31
It would be nice if tivo could add more content like roku...no stupid channels...just grade a channels like acorn,snag films,etc..that provides excellent content...I like tivo but doing this you could be a powerhouse. I like tivo setup better..even though rouku is basic and easy, I like tivo better. I keep switching from tivo to roku because of the other content I am subscribed to. It would be nice to have all that in one place..I wish I could stream roku through tivo...wow!!!!

My Digital Antennae

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 08/26/2013 - 21:28
My antennae where I live sucks!!!....it keeps going in and out all the time. I have a season pass to record a show and I cannot access the channel because it is too far away not in my viewing area....will the roamio still record it if I cannot access it in another area? please help.

I'm surprised there are no unpacking videos.

Or videos of the units in action.

Mini and remote?

Does the mini support Bluetooth or RF as I'd like to mount it behind the tv?

Romio Basic OTA - Searching for a signal on this Channel. (V52)

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 08/26/2013 - 20:24
I posted this in another thread but thought it might be better to post it in it's own thread.

I got my Tivo Romio today, threw in a 2GB harddrive and connected up the OTA. Everything was great until later this evening when I tried channel surfing when guess what. I hit a V52 error message.

Searching for a signal on this channel. (v52)

I have figured out that the problem is if you are trying to use the 3rd tuner. I was able to reproduce the problem by recording two programs then changing to another channel. If I canceled one of the recordings I was then able to tune the channel it was complaining about.

Called up tivo and they are shipping me a replacement. I really suspect this is a software issue but I'll take the replacement all the same.

So last night my Wife was watching TV in the other room via the Mini. I pulled up a YouTube video of "Never Gonna Give You Up" on my iPhone and then cast it to the Mini. Like 3 seconds later I hear "What the f*ck?" come from the other room. :D

Confused potential new user

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 08/26/2013 - 18:37
Hi. Thanks for any and all help in advance and I apologize for questions that are likely to be redundant to the community.

Until recently we had DirecTV and really enjoyed the tech that came with it. Then we moved and have been stuck with Time Warner (Franklin County, NY) due to tree issues preventing service from either satellite company. We HATE the Time Warner HD DVR. It is just outdated, clunky tech. Now we are considering investing in TiVo. The new Roamio line looks awesome and we'd most likely get the Plus edition.

I just don't quite understand how this works and I need some hand holding. Cost is the first issue. The startup fees are no problem, but right now it wouldn't be ideal for us to drop the lifetime subscription even if that does make more sense long term. We have one HD Time Warner DVR. Do we have to keep that? Can we downgrade boxes (or alternatively have no Time Warner box at all) without downgrading our TV package? If so, will I save any money with Time Warner and be able to cancel out the TiVo subscription fee?

I guess my main question is this: What do I need from Time Warner to make the box work and how much will that impact my monthly bill from Time Warner? I'm hoping it cuts it down some to make up for the bill from TiVo. Time Warner is so unlikely to be able to help me out here based on past conversations with their "customer service" that I haven't even bothered calling them to ask and instead found this forum.

Thanks again. If there is an article that explains all this then by all means point it out to me.

Time Warner/CBS battle could set pattern for future retrans deals Read more: Time Wa

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 08/26/2013 - 17:38
This could be bad news, can't believe I am supporting Time-Warner.

Time Warner Cable's (NYSE: TWC) current standoff with CBS (NYSE: CBS) over retransmission fees is being closely watched by other TV distributors such as NBC, ABC and Fox and could ultimately set the standard for future negotiations.

Typically retransmission negotiations focus on small fee increases, but CBS has asked for a big increase to make up for what it considers a historic injustice in terms of what cable and satellite providers pay for their content. According to SNL Kagan as reported by Hollywood Reporter, CBS wants to leap from 66 cents per subscriber per month to $2 per subscriber per month.

According to SNL Kagan analyst Justin Nelson, any time one of the larger networks such as CBS sets a new standard in terms of pricing, it's likely the rest will follow. CBS is considered a trailblazer in this area, and the company is saying it delivers much more in terms of programming and viewership and believes it should be paid market rates.

SNL Kagan also noted that in 2011, total broadcast retransmission fees were only $1.76 billion, while cable channels were paid around $27 billion that same year.

Premiere 320GB with Lifetime and Slide Remote

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 08/26/2013 - 16:57
I'm looking to sell my Premiere 320GB with the Slide Remote included. Works perfectly includes original box and materials. Shipping to the lower 48 included.

$425 through PayPal. That seems to be in line with what everyone is getting on eBay since it is the lowest Premiere, but includes the Slide Remote. Check out my profile on eBay, too. 100% feedback. steinbch

Placement of IR eyes

Does anyone know where to place the IR eye for my universal remote on the new tivo roamino? The rep told me right side of the box, but i cant seem to find the right location. thanks


TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 08/26/2013 - 16:40
I'm new here and I just happened to be looking at something on the net and saw where people have been using TiVO on their FIOS service. Here is my setup and I want to know how I can benefit from going to TiVO.

I have 2 HD Multi Room DVR's and two normal FIOS boxes. I have the two multi room DVRs because we record a lot and currently you can only record two shows at a time but then you can't watching anything else on that TV.

How do I benefit from going to TiVo from what I have?

Post your best Roamio price deals here

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 08/26/2013 - 16:03
lets keep one thread going with price deals on the Roamio units. I'm sure there are a lot of folks like me who are on the fence waiting for a price drop to pull the triger. I bought two premiere units on first day of launch 3 years ago. With all the pain that brought on, I've sworn to never pay the premium to be a beta tester.

So far I believe the best deals are from weaknees. $40 off the Pro model (couplon code Roamiopro) and $25 off the Plus model (coupon code roamioplus). and I believe weaknees has no taxes (for most) and free shipping.

Alright...Post your best deals! :-)

Anyone think an update for the mini is coming "soon"?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 08/26/2013 - 15:54
I wonder if the mini will get the new rf remote. I'm planning on buying a mini in the next month or so. With my luck, it will get refreshed shortly after.

WiFi connection problems

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 08/26/2013 - 15:45
It will connect after multiple attempts, but then drops the connection multiple times throughout the day. I have to reboot the tivo, and try multiple times to get it to connect again. Even when connected it shows the broadcast channel as 0 even though I am broadcasting on channel 11. The XL I have connects with no problem, shows correct channel and everything. Have rebooted the router multiple times, all other devices including my XL box connect just fine.

I "accidentally" ordered 2 Roamios - Need advice

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Mon, 08/26/2013 - 15:35
I initially ordered a Roamio on Tivo.com and then saw the Weaknees offer which came to about $120 less with no Tax and coupon. I tried to cancel my Tivo.com order but it was too late. My Tivo.com order just got here, and now I need to wait 2 more days to get my Weeknees delivery. I am also going away on Thursday for the weekend.

Do you think if I setup and install the Tivo.com order, and then when my WK DVR comes in, I can ship that back to Tivo.com? I know its slightly unethical but I woudl be sending them back an unopened DVR. My concern though is that I see tivo.com already has the ID.

Arrggh! Its stairing at me and waiting 2 days will drive me nuts!
