Channels misaligned in Brighthouse Cable Florida

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 08/21/2014 - 18:20
I woke up today noticing that all channels shifted one position on the lineup. I called TiVo support and they say brighthouse announced the shift but did not do it. Then I called brighthouse and they told me is a known issue and that it was reported to the engineering department. I am a Orange County (Orlando) customer.
If you have this issue please call and report the issue. It's posted on their knowledge base.

Is HOCKEY not a sport according to Tivo?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 08/21/2014 - 17:49
Why is Hockey not on the extensive list of sports when browsing categories to watch? It lists table tennis and skeleton, but not HOCKEY!!! What's up with that?

Track your favorite team also seems to only be football oriented. Ignoring the hockey issue, I also can't track basketball.

FYI: I'm speaking of the "Browse" tab on the iPad app. Not sure yet if hockey items will show up on Tivo Central under "What to watch now" area. I'm guessing it will, but haven't used this feature much being OTA for quite some time till now (Cox cable).

TiVo To Drop Mini Service Fees?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 08/21/2014 - 17:23
Zatz Not Funny who has been a reliable source of TiVo info before TiVo annouces it, is stating that TiVo may drop the fee requirement for the mini or at the least, lower it drastically. Now I have always had a fundamental issue with TiVo charging a service fee for a product that only functions when used with another TiVo device that requires a service fee. Perhaps they have seen the light! IMO - Tivo needs to kick their marketing department into overdrive and be more aggressive.

Only issue is that pure speculation is that if the do this, they will increase the purchase price of the Mini itself. We shall just have to wait and see if this really happens!

Feasibility of an AT&T U-Verse TiVo?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 08/21/2014 - 13:44
How feasible is the possibility of a TiVo that would work with AT&T U-Verse?

I realize that there are any number of problems, probably the biggest being the limit of 4 incoming feeds (that's a limit for the house, not per set-top box), but even a non-recording box with the TiVo interface (well, it would be recording, but only what was currently being watched on that particular STB) would be better than what exists now - there's no provision for frame-by-frame or slow motion. Even a one-tuner box (that mimics the STB - and only what was being watched could be recorded) would be better than nothing.

Network Roamio -- Same Cat5 for Tivo and internet access for computer

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 08/21/2014 - 12:37
I have what seems like a simple question but so far haven't found an answer.

I'm networking a new house (new to me, old house), and I want to run ethernet cable (Cat5) from a single Roamio to several rooms throughout the house. The reason I choose ethernet over MoCA is that I want to have internet access for computers in those rooms also. (And smart TV's, and other smart devices like PS4).

Can it all be one ethernet cable to each room? Or should I go ahead and run 2 -- one from the router, and one from the back of the Roamio for streaming content?

Thanks for any replies. I was thinking that perhaps the Roamio, if plugged into the back of the router (it will be co-located) might just talk to all the rooms, and I would perhaps use a switch box at the other end to enable two or more devices (such as a bedroom that has a computer and a TV with a Tivo Mini or Smart TV functions).

Seems like this would have already been asked and answered 1,000 times.

'Intruders' - BBC America

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 08/21/2014 - 10:32
New series starts August 23.

Quote: From writer and executive producer Glen Morgan (The X-Files), Intruders is about a secret society devoted to chasing immortality by seeking refuge in the bodies of others. A contemporary, chilling, paranormal tale set in the moody Pacific Northwest, the eight part series spins a fascinating and complex web of drama. As strange, apparently unrelated events start happening, multiple story-lines – a missing wife, an assassin covering his crimes, a child on the run – begin to intertwine to reveal a conspiracy that will forever change our understanding of human nature. Produced by BBC Worldwide Productions, the series is based on British novelist Michael Marshall Smith’s ‘The Intruders’. Stars John Simm and Mira Sorvino.

Welcome to Sweden airing double episodes, starting tonight

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 08/21/2014 - 10:27
A heads up on Welcome to Sweden programming.

"Working the Engels", the show following WtS, has been cancelled, and NBC is yanking it from the schedule immediately. WtS will be pulling double duty, airing a (new) 2nd episode in the WtE timeslot.

Your guide may not get this update in time (it's effective tonight!), so you may need to set a manual recording.

BTW, Welcome to Sweden has been renewed for a second season.

Big Brother - 8/20/14

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 08/21/2014 - 08:54
It's interesting how the Team America prank ended up royally screwing Zach. I give credit to Frankie for seeing that the house was turning against Zach, and seizing the opportunity. The next episode should be interesting. I assume Zach will have a global meltdown, and it will be fun to watch. They are also bringing someone back into the game from the jury. How funny would it be if Zach came right back into the game after getting backdoored? :)

This episode marked the first time I can recall where players openly acknowledged that Derrick is running the show, and that he will win if he makes it to the end. The season has sucked so far, but it should at least be a bit more interesting from this point forward.

How to sign in to YouTube on Series III?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 08/21/2014 - 07:45
I'm trying to access my list on YouTube. Google blocks me (although my name and password are correct) then sends pithy messages to my email account, saying, in essence, they had blocked me. There are some things they suggest, including clicking to a site that says "allow" the site (they don't say _what_ site or if they're talking about my TiVo) access, but that doesn't work.

I can't find any solution on Google/YouTube help or help forums, although several have the same problem.

Do you know how to fix this?

Amazon Launches Ad Network

As a for (gadget) profit entity, we’re often on the lookout for new methods of delivering relevant yet minimally intrusive advertising. And, one effective tool has been Amazon Associates. As Amazon sells just about everything, we can hopefully maintain a certain level of editorial neutrality by spiking the occasional post or tweet with an affiliate link to whatever […]

Any one else have strange Record activity?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 08/21/2014 - 04:17
Since the Summer update, my Roamio occasionally pretends to record shows. I say pretends because it turns on the red record light, and if I check my four tuners, I will find one that shows the record icon, and if I check the Guide for the channel to which the tuner is tuned, it will show that the program is being recorded. But nothing appears in "My Shows" or "To Do List" before, during, or after the record light activity.

I've checked my Season Passes, Wishlists and Manual Recordings and nothing matches the show that is seemingly being recorded. I've checked the History, and nothing appears for the program that the Tivo pretended to record. Anyone else see this kind of behavior? Or have suggestions for what else I should check?

CSpire Fiber??

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 08/21/2014 - 03:59
I currently own a Roamio Plus and a Mini and am thinking about getting another Roamio Plus. A place where I own property is getting CSpire Fiber(think Google Fiber) with 1 Gb download speeds. The information on the Roamio say it doesn't work with Google Fiber, but is that Google Fiber TV or Internet?

I'm thinking if I get CSpire internet and then get Comcast TV, I will still be able to use all the Roamios at the new house. Is that correct?

Seven Deadly Sins

TiVo Blog - Thu, 08/21/2014 - 02:08
Showtime recently premiered a new series about the seven deadly sins. For those of you not in the know, these include lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy, and pride. As evidenced by the show’s first episode on gluttony, these sins can get pretty heavy (pun intended). And I for one do not have it in me to worry about one more serious issue. So I’ve decided that when it comes to this whole eternal damnation thing, I’ll just keep a positive attitude. As David Bowie sings in Labyrinth…“It’s only forever, not Continue Reading

Extant "More in Heaven and Earth" (8/20/14) [Spoilers, sure]

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 08/20/2014 - 23:10
What is it with humans when they make contact with an extraterrestrial entity? Have none of these goobers ever seen Alien? Independence Day? Falling Skies? It almost always turns out bad for the locals. And you can never contain it.

Two questions - What year is this supposed to be?

Is this a one season show or do we know yet?

ETA: Yes, I forgot to add the title of the second ep. It's "Incursion."

Another Conflicts Issue

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 08/20/2014 - 22:29
I have the Premiere XL with the latest (within the past couple weeks) update and am having a conflicts issue. I've read dozens of threads on conflicts and still can't understand what is happening.

I had two shows that were flagged with the red X as conflicts. I deleted the conflicting shows. Normally, I would check the next day and the conflicting show would then be set to record. In this case, those two still show as conflicts. When I highlight the show in the ToDo list, the explanation is that there are 4 conflicting shows. For one of these examples, there is just one other show recording at the same time, but for the other example, there's not even ONE conflicting show!, and yet they still show as conflicts. Its now been at least 4-5 days.

Is there something I'm missing, or some way to tell the TiVo to refresh the schedule?

Wilfred - Series finale

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 08/20/2014 - 22:05
So Ryan is bat**** crazy, Jenna is a bitch, and the poor dog died (except for Ryan's imagination).

I thought it was pretty depressing for Ryan...
  • The man he thought was his father wasn't. But really truely loved him despite Ryan hating him for years.
  • Both Ryan's biological parents are crazy as ****.. He drew the short stick of the gene pool.
  • The dog dies.
  • Jenna leads Ryan on then gets back with Drew.


I was fooled at first, I thought the suicide attempt was a flashback of the pilot.

Anyone else see it???
