I just purchased the Tivo Roamio and the mini. I have everything in a closet av rack downstairs of my home. All my devices are in this rack including these 2 new Tivos. I ran a 100' HDMI cable from my downstairs to my upstairs bedroom and was working perfectly fine with my cable box a couple of days ago. That same cable, I cannot get signal on my Mini. My question is, do I need an HDMI extender/booster to get a signal off the 100' HDMI cable? The Tivo mini works because I tested it with the 6' HDMI cable in came with. Thanks!
I have a Premier XL4 that has been working fine with a wired Ethernet adapter. Last week I noticed it could not connect to the internet anymore or stream shows to my other Tivo. I am guessing the Ethernet port has gone bad. Does anyone know of a good USB-Ethernet adapter that will work. I have tried two different ones that should work but do not with the XL4
I am in complete awe of Det./Patrolman Lance's inability to put 2 and 2 together and recognize Oliver as the Arrow. Every episode, I'm like "C'mon man! Doesn't the stubbly beard give it away just a little bit?"
Hopefully, the Laurel drama is out of the way. I spent half this episode wishing she'd go play in traffic.
I liked this villain. It's a shame he was just a one off bad guy.
I've gotten a little tired of the flashbacks. At least this one had a payoff.
Looks like Oliver is going to have some Slade Wilson trouble.
Here is yet another "nutty" question.....Does the Tivo Stream have to be connected by the Tivo Roamio, or can I just connect closer to my router?
I have a cat5 connecting the Tivo to the router in another room. That's why I ask.
After an officemate came by and showed me email from TiVo saying that his TiVo might be bricked, he and I looked around and found this thread:
S3 Software 11.3b7 broke my channels
In that thread I saw it mention software version 11.3 (I haven't paid attention to the version in quite a while). I called my wife at home and asked her to check what version our Series 3 TiVo currently has.
She then told me that my daughter pointed out yesterday at 4:30pm that our Series 3 screen was black. My wife checked it and said it's in a reboot loop, so she can't check which version of the software is currently running.
This sure sounds to me like a bad software update came down to my box, but I didn't see others talking about a reboot loop. Is this another symptom of the same problem that my coworker and others are having?
I have received no emails myself from TiVo as of yet.
Was site down earlier or was it just for me?
Saw a couple on Natgeo 2 guys go to historical locations compete to see who finds best relic was fairly entertaining, anyone watching it?
Now that Raj can speak in front of women he is getting a lot of good lines:
Bernadette: Have you guys ever thought about getting a dining room table?
Amy: Yeah. You actually do have room for one up there.
Raj: Oh, sure, I sit on the floor for years, no one cares. The pretty white girl's there ten seconds, and suddenly we're all running to Ikea.
This is a complete hypothetical:
Lets say, one of our allies, we'll call them Canada, is thrust into revolution. There have been protests there that the government is too cozy with the U.S. and they want to move it to a different direction. Their biggest border is with the U.S. Finally, the leader of that country runs and the country is now in the hands of a government that is more friendly with a government that is not in our sphere of influence. We'll call them Russia. We have some concerns that our troops, stationed in that country and other interests we have in the country like the control of Canadian oil will now be controlled by a government that is not friendly to us.
How much do you get involved? Do you send troops?
Baseball season is coming soon and want to set my TiVo to record anything with "MLB Baseball" as the title, and "New York Yankees" as the keyword. I have it set to keep 1 game until space is needed, so the next game it'll automatically record over it.
This will work, however with complicated sports broadcasting agreements, sometimes it's on the local regional sports channel, sometimes ESPN, sometimes Fox, sometimes Fox Sports 1, sometimes MLB Network, sometimes the local OTA channel.
Sometimes it appears to TiVo that it is on multiple channels at once, however certain airings on channels are blacked out and actually airing a different game with teams outside my region. Is there a way to prioritize the channels the wishlist picks up, and only record 1 airing at a time? I'd like the prioritization to be Regional Sports Network -> Local OTA -> ESPN -> Fox -> Fox Sports 1 -> MLB Network.
I could potential do this by setting the show "MLB Baseball" to record on each of these channels and prioritize it in my Season Pass manager, however with 6 tuners I'm afraid it will record a bunch of them at once if "MLB Baseball" is airing on multiple channels, and I am bound to pickup games I don't want.
Anyone understand what I'm looking for here? Any ideas? Thanks
I have some lifetime TiVos on my account that have been sold to other users, but they apparently are still on my account. I want to maybe get some more (Roamios and/or Premieres), but is there a limit as to how many TiVos can reside on one account?
Our old Series 3 TiVo was finally deactivated yesterday. It had an external 1T drive attached to it and we'd like to move it over to the new PRO.
My question is, will the recordings that are currently on the PRO remain there? Or do we lose everything by attaching the drive?
We no longer have the original instructions (the drive is a few years old), so I'm not even sure what the procedure is for attaching it.
By way of The Drum, we learn that Virgin TiVo set-tops have just published My Nick Jr – a customizable app of pre-school edutainment: My Nick Jr. features 650 Nick Jr. episodes including episodes of beloved Nick Jr. titles such as Dora the Explorer, Bubble Guppies, Tickety Toc and Dinosaur Train. Using the app, parents can create an individual My […]

I have been having problems since I got Netflix some months ago with my Tivo Series 3 HD INTERMITTANTLY having start/stop (stuttering) of picture+video at intervals of every few seconds when playing back a Netflix video. I think I have finally identified the problem. Please read on.
1) Tivo told me that the problem was not in the Tivo.
2) Comcast speed demonstrated 12 to 14mbps download speed whenever I tested. Comcast said the problem was not them.
3) Netflix said the problem was not with them.
4) Restarting the Tivo had no good effect.
5) Restarting the router+modem had no good effect.
6) I tried turning the "picture quality" on Netflix down from AUTO to MEDIUM. Stuttering was a tiny bit better, but not fixed.
7) I tried turning the "picture quality" down on Netflix to LOW. This further reduced the data download speed and somewhat reduced the "stuttering", but did NOT fix the problem.
8) Since the problem was INTERMITTANT, I looked to see what was going on in the TiVo when the problem was happening. I noticed that when the problem happened, the Tivo was busy DOWNLOADING TWO TV PROGRAMS and at the same time trying to play my Netflix program!
This leads me to believe that the Tivo has inadequate CPU processor speed to be able to accommodate all three jobs at once. What do you guys think about this? is there any way to speed up the CPU in a Series 3 HD? Thanks
So, we get all of these and then watch after we get the whole season. I just got another one...I believe episode 14! So just when is season 2 over?
Well this season has started with a BANG....great to have it back, but boy is Phillip some kind of killer....what was his body count in this ep? 4? 5?
Can the Toshiba SDH-400 be used with a OTA signal with an external digital tv signal tuner? Does the IR blaster work to control and record?
If it does, is there a specific brand/model digital tv tuner needed?
I am wondering if TiVo is a "sole source provider" for the Western Digital My Book DVR Expander. I just spent close to $1000 for my TiVo Roamio and lifetime service so I was looking for a way to save a few bucks on the external hard drive. I bought one on Amazon that said it was TiVo compatible, but when I tried to install it, the screen said it was not supported by TiVo. I returned it, but I am looking for one that will work without having to pay $200 for it. Any suggestions?
Another new premiere.
This one I will have to watch a few episodes, being that the whole season is 1 night at a bar, and 10 stories to tell, but I see that they are already getting around that with lots of flash backs.
Ratings were not great, ok they were lousy, especially following "Modern Family".
Just might be an early night.
