Series 3 owner thinking about upgrade - any whispers on Roamio replacement?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 03/18/2015 - 22:12
Hi all,

Just got the Amazon e-mail about the service change over. Not really bothered as I don't have more than a couple of purchased shows, but am tempted with a shiny new toy...

Currently I've got a HD XL from late 2008.

The Roamio has been out since August 2013, presumably a refresh is due this year? Not sure I want to buy one now if it's going to be replaced in 6 months. Anyone heard anything?

Apart from the usual glitches with the tuning adapter and the occasional need to reboot, the XL has been pretty good.

Add Stray Movie To Folder

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 03/18/2015 - 21:46
Hi there -

I have a folder, called a Group by Tivo, set up to record all of Francis Ford Copola's movies via Wish List. There is one that didn't land in the folder with the others - Rumble Fish. It's driving my OCD crazy to have Rumble Fish floating the pile of other recordings when all the other Coppola movies share a folder.

Can I manually or in some other way add Rumble Fish to the folder that has all the other Copolla films ?

Thanks !

Although I may have burned out on Community, Yahoo has banked on it. And I know many of you have been eagerly anticipating its triumphant (over-the-top) return. Well, fear not TiVo lovers, as VP Margret Schmidt has surprised us with news that Yahoo Screen will be available to Roamio, Premiere, and Mini owners this week. Yahoo Screen on […]

Can't delete 2 Cnet recordings...

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 03/18/2015 - 14:47
On 2/27 my Tivo Roamio Basic recorded 2 blank Cnet recordings. I click delete but they won't go away. Never had this problem in the 10 years I've had Tivo. I called Tivo Support and they asked me if I had the new software update. At the time I had it for around a week or so. He said, yep, that's a problem, just be glad that's all the problems you've had. Offered no help, just said they will go away eventually...it's been over 4 weeks now and I still can't delete them. Any ideas on how to get them to go away???

Sony announces their TV service -- Playstation Vue

Interesting approach. Instead of the cheap, barebones service that Dish is going for with SlingTV, Sony is creating essentially another normal cable or satellite package with Plastation Vue. It even has somewhat of a DVR function ("recordings" can be kept for 28 days and commercials can be fast forward).

No one is going to save any money with this, but when it launches the idea of only choosing between cable and satellite will be gone. Internet TV will be a legit third option. I will be glad when this is in my back pocket for my next fight with TWC.

I wonder what Apple will do. I cannot see there being three long term viable internet TV providers, but we will see I suppose.

TiVo Series 3 To Lose Amazon Instant

Zatz Not Funny! - Wed, 03/18/2015 - 12:12

Dreading tax day? Well, I’ve got more bad news for you. Come April 15th, TiVo Series 3 owners unceremoniously lose access to Amazon Instant. Launched on TiVo way back in 2006 as Amazon Unbox (going HD in 2008), before we called these things “apps”, the video download service has been superseded by a streaming-centric approach that older TiVo hardware […]

Tivo Series 3 no longer working with Amazon Prime

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 03/18/2015 - 11:40
Just got an email from Amazon offering $100 discount on an upgrade to a Roamio as it seems Prime will no longer work with Series 3 after April 15.
Don't see anything about this elsewhere in here, anyone know if this is Tivo refusing to upgrade software - making Tivo HD obsolete or Amazon making a change which genuinely cannot be ported back?

BAtesd Motel - Season 3 (Spoilers up to current show)

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 03/18/2015 - 09:46
Anyone watching or just not enough interest for threads???

My wife and I liked the first two seasons enough to stick with it. But going into season three we realized we couldn't really recall how the last season left off. It seems like they took an unusually long break in between. Oh well.

So, was the body floating in the lake supposed to be the porche driver (I forget her name)? They kept showing commercials for another show that airs right after (The Return??) and our recording cut off so I couldn't tell if that scene was part of BM or the other show.

Norman is one messed up kid. It was weird that he seemed into Emma but when they were talking on their date, I had moments where I thought he was going into his weird state and maybe killing her. :eek:

Marvel's Agents of Shield "One Of Us" 3/17/2015

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 03/18/2015 - 09:24
Interesting episode - I think the Inhumans reveal is taking too long, along with showing Skye's father actually doing his thing, rather than hinting at it and only showing the aftermath. They already showed the blind guy teleporting, and now they showed where he went. Will we next see what he eats for breakfast along with a hint about who cooked it?

I have a feeling that, and this is pure speculation but I will tag it anyway:

Spoiler: Skye's mother is, if fact, not dead, and that's why the reveal is taking so long. Why else would he take her father, who is not "one of them?"

I don't understand why coma-voice-man had to have his mouth open up that much, other than the cool effect.

I also don't understand why a woman with razor blades grafted onto her fingernails constitutes a SHIELD level threat. Regardless, why did they put those things on her hands, when they could have just removed the blades?

Since they are such low level characters, I doubt we'll get much explanation.

Tivo adds Yahoo Screen?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 03/18/2015 - 07:41
This morning, my daughter was getting ready to launch Amazon Prime and pick something to watch and commented that there's a "new Amazon". I went over to look and noticed Yahoo! Screen was now available as a streaming video provider on my Roamio box. I didn't have a chance to launch it, but thought I'd mention it for others who might be interested.

This came out of the blue; I don't recall hearing any rumors on this. Who knows what else is in the pipeline.

Win 10 Pro to include WMC

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 03/18/2015 - 07:24
Just saw this article linked over at the AVS Forums:

http://news.softpedia.com/news/Windo...s-475967.shtml

It's hard to see, but if you click on the magnifying glass to see the complete image you'll notice the ProfessionalWMC version listed at the bottom of the screen.

I'm not sure if WMC is only available in a specific edition of Win 10 Pro or whether it will be available as an add-on like Windows 8/8.1. In any case, this is the first definitive news about WMC being available in Windows 10. However, it will likely be unchanged from any previous version available in either Win 7 or 8/8.1 Pro.
