Has anyone have any issues with Pandora on the new base Roamio ? Using Pandora has caused my Roamio to reboot twice. In addition exiting the app seems to take ages to get back to live tv or tivo central.

Any other differences in between the Basic and the Plus?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 08/25/2013 - 23:15
I'm trying to see the if the plus is worth the extra $200 in my case.

I already knew some of the differences but after looking at this page https://www.tivo.com/shop/roamio#tab1 I found out about the MoCA bridge and remote finder that I didn't know.

Since I'm Ethernet wired, I have a Sling, I can live with 4 tuners and all the other listed differences (read HD) don't mean much to me. I think the basic is the right choice in my case.

Aside form the physical aspect, are there any other differences in between the basic and the plus versions?

Disclaimer: I use mythtv, not tivo, but the guide data comes from the same source (tribune), so it should affect tivo users as well.

Just a heads up for anyone about the finals that aired today on G4. My guide data shows the same 1 hour episode airing every hour from 9pm until 4am. However, it appears that it was actually a 2 hour episode.

Wow. There have been 9 episodes already!

You could see Mickey's gears grinding and you knew that the Miller was gonna get shot. Mickey should have taken the pictures from the wall.

Now they'll say Miller was killed over a drug deal.

Tommy is not worth the trouble. He dressed so nice for the awards show.

Big Brother - 8/25/13

Elissa is the worst player I've ever seen. With Judd back in the game, she had the perfect opportunity to team up with him, Spencer and GM and turn the game around. They have the numbers, they are just too stupid to realize it. At the very least, Elissa could have at least used her HoH as leverage to secure some deals with other players. Instead, she didn't do jack sh*t. Not surprising, but disappointing nonetheless.

Dexter 8/25/13 "Make Your Own Kind Of Music"

With all this talk about a Breaking Bad spin-off sit-com with Saul, I can't help but think Dexter should get a sit-com spin-off of its own. "The Deb & Hannah Show." Two hot roomies. Who want to kill each other.


Things do seem to be coming together, in the sense that fissile material comes together in the core of a nuclear bomb. I sense a body count coming on...

Pretty cagey. I didn't expect Walt to full on implicate Hank. It's a stop-gap measure for sure, but still.

Another great episode. The train keeps rollin' full steam.

Premiere and roamio MSR.

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 08/25/2013 - 20:11
Trying to figure this out... I have the premiere, hard wired. I want to add another TiVo to the bedroom so that they can share shows. There is no way to get network cable to the bedroom since its in the attic.

But of course I will want the roamio as the new main tivo... How well does the wireless adapter work (for the premiere) and are there any good alternatives?

Edit: MSR? Multi room streaming lol thanks iPhone.

Roamio wont accept My Book AV

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 08/25/2013 - 18:49
After I got it up and running, I connected the My Book AV DVR Expander 1TB and restarted the box (twice). It keeps telling me the drive is unsupported after I agree to allow it to set it up for storage.

Connected to basic Roamio via eSata.

Also seems to be stuck on "Getting info (Downloading...)"

Edit: Finally made it thru download (on wifi with 85% signal).

Roamio Doesn't Appear in Tivo Transfer

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 08/25/2013 - 18:23
I connected my new Roamio directly to my router via hardwired Ethernet cable, but it's not showing up in Tivo Transfer for Mac. My old Premiere is there, but nothing else. Anybody else having this issue?

Tuners 5 and 6 Not Authorized

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 08/25/2013 - 18:14
Has anyone see this before? I have a Roamio Plus with a SA CableCard and when I try to use tuners 5 and 6 all but the in the clear channels say not authorized and to call Comcast. Does Comcast have to do something on their end to get my 5th and 6th tuners authorized? I tested this by recording 4 shows and used the 5th tuner to navigate channels. Then used the 5th tuner on an in the clear channel and used the 6th channel to navigate channels.

Available Space Discrepancy Between Tivo and App

Roamio Plus Troubleshooting Questions

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 08/25/2013 - 17:40
#1 I have the new Roamio Plus setup and was wondering if anyone else has a Mini connected. When my mini is connected but not being used for more than 4 hours it is still using a tuner. I can only record 5 shows at once and that was after a reboot for good measure. Is dynamic tuner allocation not implemented yet in the Roamio? For some reason I thought it was. Also after connecting my mini I can not see it as an option to allow a tuner in Settings and Messages-->Remote, CableCard, & Devices. There was an option in there on the Premiere XL4 I had before that could set how many tuners to allocate.
All I have in this menu now is:

CableCard Decoder
External Storage
Name This DVR
Network Remote Control
Remote Control Setup
Tuning Adapter

#2 Does anyone with a mini connected to a Roamio Plus or Pro have tuner allocation as an option? Also I have Moca enabled and in network settings there is no way for me to see the Moca network status.

#3 With my XL4 when Moca bridging was enabled if I looked in Settings---> Network in the field Type: is says Ethernet Connection + Moca but on the Roamio is just says Ethernet Connection even when Moca bridging has been enabled.

Roamie and TTGO?

Nowhere on TiVo's site do I see mention of TTGO other than transfer to iOS devices. Am I just being paranoid or has this feature been abandoned?

Roamio Wifi Setup Problem

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 08/25/2013 - 17:20
Is anyone having problems connecting their Roamio via Wifi? I'm using the current (6th Generation) Apple Airport Extreme router. After a lot of fooling around, the only way I was able to connect via Wifi was to:

1. Turn off MAC filtering (called Timed Access Control in Apple's Airport Utility). I'm certain I typed the MAC address correctly as shown on the Tivo screen, and I have 9 other devices that connect with no problems.

2. Plug in a hardwired Ethernet cable first, before choosing "Connect Using Wireless." It doesn't make any sense to have to do this for a wireless setup. Even after doing this, the "Network Connection" screen doesn't refresh to show a wireless connection. You have to go to the "Network Diagnostics" screen and come back to it.

If I undo either of those two steps and try connecting again via wireless, I get a "Wireless Network Problem" screen, error code (N06). There are some troubleshooting tips on that screen, and then it says "For more info, visit tiro.com/help/N06," which brings you to a web page that says "Internal Server Error."

I called up Tivo Support, and the representative didn't know about this issue and wasn't very helpful.

Roamio Remote?

So the Roamio remote will work with my S3 but not my Premiere is that correct? Seems backwards to me. :confused:

8/25/13 Futurama "Fanarama" marathon

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 08/25/2013 - 16:47
Comedy Central are running a 10 show marathon of episodes of Futurama chosen by viewers starting at 6pm EST <14 mins at time of writing, the guide over at tivo.com has the "New" flag for those episodes (just like my cableco DVR).

If you have a SP for new episodes, don't be surprised to see a bunch of re-runs mixed in.

Terrible Time Warner Installation

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 08/25/2013 - 16:32
So, I decided to treat myself to cable after being without it for a year or so, and thought I would go all out and get the new Roamio basic. As I am under contract with ATT Uverse (internet only) at the moment, Time Warner is my cheapest option for standalone cable.

So now I have a lifetime Premiere and Roamio. Couldn't have been any happier this morning as I had everything ready to go for the technician.

Time Warner calls me to tell me that they don't have enough tuning adapters for my two Tivos. I politely asked if one could be installed as I could try a self install at a later date for my premiere. The technician tells me they don't allow half-installations.

He calls his supervisor, and finally agrees to come out and manages to track down a second tuning adapter: what luck!

But he spends the next 3 hours going up and down my stairs from one Tivo to the next complaining about how much of a pain Tivos are, and how I shouldn't have scheduled this for a Sunday because if they cable cards don't work, they don't have access to any more.

Long story short, he is unable to get most of the SDV channels to work on the Roamio, and no channels will come in upstairs on my premiere as it says none of the channels are authorized.

When I called the cable card hotline, they informed me that the Tuner and FDC levels are not in the correct range: both -11 dBmV according to the TA Diagnostics screen. She said that if these levels are adjusted between -7 and 7, the Roamio should work fine. She did agree that I would likely need a new cable card for the Premiere.

What I've noticed is that certain SDV channels will come in on the Roamio if I change the channel back and forth a couple of times. Does it sound like the levels being adjusted would fix this issue?

Edit: I just noticed that the SDV channels that we do get are heavily pixelated every couple of minutes, similar to an OTA channel with a weak signal.

New drive in DVR expander?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Sun, 08/25/2013 - 15:34
My wife had her DVR expander die a year or so ago. We bought a new one but I kept the old one thinking I mig replace the drive and use it on my PC. However now I'm curious... If I replaced the drive would it still work on a TiVo? Not that I need more space with my 3TB pro coming, but still curious.
