i'm getting some freezing of the picture, perhaps 3-4 times a week. would cloning the drive onto a new 1 likely solve this?

is the hard drive type just a PC SATA III internal hard drive?

TiVo blog post mentions "cloud-based architecture"

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 11/19/2014 - 13:38
I know there has been much discussion about cloud-based DVRs. On the official TiVi blog http://blog.tivo.com/, there is a new post that mentions "cloud-based architecture". Here is the relevant part:
Quote: We at TiVo Research and Analytics are developing some very innovative measurement solutions that we would like to share with you:

* Moving our current system to a cloud-based architecture will allow us to grow our STB data footprint to over three million households. Here is a link to the full post:

It appears they are referring to "measurement solutions" only, but the phrase "moving our current system" certainly leaves much to be interpreted. I have little concern that they are moving to a cloud storage for recordings, nonetheless this post creates food for thought. For example, Roamio users are already having issues when TiVo's site is down creating limited DVR functionality (or when one's Internet is unavailable). While one hopes that TPTB and their programmers have learned to be very careful in this area, there could be a real danger if instead they move even further into this arena.

I would love to hear more from TiVo on this subject.

Game of Ratings

TiVo Blog - Wed, 11/19/2014 - 12:47
The following blog contains over seven Game of Thrones quotes. Can you spot them all? The headlines continue to permeate the media landscape on virtually a daily basis: Nielsen Seven Month Glitch… NBC Wants a Do-over… Nielsen Says Rentrak Doesn’t Let Facts Get in the Way… Rentrak Fires Back… Hodor! Hodor! As we all know, words are wind, but sometimes that wind can be very biting. “…We’re still doing TV ratings on something more analogous to political polling,” says Time Magazine columnist James Poniewozik in a recent Public Radio International Continue Reading

Mini can't see Roamio over Moca

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 11/19/2014 - 11:04
when non-Moca router is down.

Why is this? I would think the Mini could see and play back recordings from a Roamio even if I take my router down for an hour since there is a direct Moca connection between the two.

Did I set this up to let the router determine the DHCP address or was that even an option or is that just how it works? I forget.

Just curious.

Want To Buy: USB RF dongle for TiVo Mini

I'd like to purchase one or two USB RF dongles so I can use the TiVo Roamio RF remote with my TiVo Mini.

Thanks :)

Tuner quits until reboot when certain channel is tuned in

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 11/19/2014 - 10:12
I just got a Roamio OTA and finished aiming the antenna. I was testing signal strengths and once I aimed the antenna optimally, I tested the strength again and got a couple weak stations that weren't coming in before.

One of them in particular (Channel 21.1, KUNU-LD out of Victoria, real RF channel 28, though my antenna is aimed to San Antonio) comes in with a signal strength of about 40. But the worst part is, when I tune to that channel, the tuner stops working, apparently until reboot. This happened three times in a row. No other channels will come in; no other signals are picked up. (It's not happening when I tune to any other station.) Rebooting the box "fixes" it but that's an unacceptable solution. This isn't a station I ever plan to watch but I could accidentally wind up tuning it at some point and causing it to stop working.

Has anyone else experienced anything like this? I suppose it could be a defective tuner, but I'm not sure if it's that or maybe some system software glitch. And if so, has anyone found a workaround to prevent themselves from ever tuning to such a station, especially one they don't care about anyway?

Mini doesn't resume recording from host

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 11/19/2014 - 09:18
I've recently noticed that sometimes when watching a recording on my Roamio Pro and then trying to resume the same recording on my Mini, there is no option to resume where I left off but rather only to play from the beginning. This doesn't happen on every recording, I would say approximately 50% of the time.

Has anyone else noticed this?

Atlantic Broadband Launches Streaming TiVo Portal

Zatz Not Funny! - Wed, 11/19/2014 - 06:46
Nearly a year after RCN and perhaps behind schedule, Atlantic Broadband has launched their iteration of the streaming TiVo web portal, proving once again that TiVo is something more than a DVR manufacturer – providing a variety of software and integration services to cable providers both here and abroad. Indeed, Atlantic Broadband is a subsidiary of relatively new TiVo licensee Cogeco and […]

Tivo Roamio>HTPC TV Tuner Connection

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 11/19/2014 - 04:20
Has anyone connected their Tivo Roamio directly to their HTPC TV tuner? I want to use the Tivo for the cableCard since it is far cheaper than an actual cableCard adapter. I want to use Windows Media Center as my media interface along with XBMC (soon to be Kodi). What additional equipment will I need (if any)? Or did you find a workaround? I know I'll need splitters but can't wrap my head around the configuration without losing my internet connection. I am currently using Comcast Internet and TV service.

Software tuning adapter?

Could this be the first signs of the software tuning adapter that we heard about from TiVo? I don't recall seeing this information in the DVR diagnostics screen before. Has anyone else?

Great, great episode that actually advanced the plot. :) The Peter Weller directed episodes have been the better ones this season.

So now everything is on the table, and we have 2 more episodes to see how everything winds up.

Juice is the new Otto I guess. I wonder if Jax will get meet Mr Mayhem?

Amazon Prime Login Bug on 20.4.5

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 11/18/2014 - 22:37
I am a Tivo reseller and have our demo units upgraded to the new OS 20.4.5. I also added a client's boxes to the priority update queue and they received the update today. All boxes have the new Amazon and Vudu apps.

Now for the Bug:
On our demo Roamio plus I entered our Amazon Prime information and the app works great (aside from the terribly slow keyboard interface with no shortcut options like the Vudu login keyboard). Then I moved to the Tivo Mini. After entering the same information with no errors typed in the user name and password, an error message appears telling me that I have entered incorrect login credentials. I tried reentering the information various times, but the login never goes through.

At the clients house, this time I entered the clients amazon info in their Tivo Mini first and the account setup without any issues. I then entered the info in the Tivo Roamio Pro and receive the same error message for incorrect login.

So it seems like that you can only run Prime on one of your boxes, not all of them. This issue needs to be resolved before the major roll out.

If you want to move the account info to a different box you need to deregister it from the current one. This is done by press yellow for help in the app and selecting deregister from the app menu

Community please chime in if you are experiencing this problem or have a solution. Thanks for reading.

Slide Remote Problem

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 11/18/2014 - 22:23
I have the old style slide remote. It no longer responds to key presses like it used to. For example if I held the volume up button, the volume would go up as long as I held the button. Now it will only go up one notch no matter how long I press it. also other long presses (right/left) no longer worked like they used to.

Any suggestions other than changing the batteries?
