Big Brother 8/6/2014

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 08/07/2014 - 07:38
So the plan to backdoor Frankie is gone. I still wasn't positive she'd actually go through with it, but it looks like she was going to. Another alliance gone (Christine and Nicole), another on the ropes (the Detonators). I do wonder, if Derrick will look at the numbers and realize it might not be such a good idea to push to get rid of Zack. While he's a cuckoo bird, he's THEIR cuckoo bird and it might be better if Derrick pushes for Jocasta to go. This also gives him credibility in both his old and new alliance if he can push Nicole to get rid of "floater" Jocasta. The obvious reasoning will be that if Zack is still around at the end, he wouldn't get enough votes to win and Jocasta has a lot of "friends" in the house and she might garner a sympathy vote or two.

Caleb and Victoria....now that was really funny. It was interesting that by the end of the 48 hours, Victoria had very few leaves left on the bottom half of her costume. :)

Specific Steps for Comcast On Demand?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Thu, 08/07/2014 - 00:36
Does the Mini have a special setup to access the on demand or does Comcast need to have a specific code for the Mini to access on demand? On Demand seems to work fine on the Pro and Plus, the Mini pulls its stuff from the Pro. However, when I try to access On Demand from the Mini, I can't. So I'm here hoping to find out what specific steps I need to take or make sure I have to get it working. =)

Pretty sad to Holder losing it. Linden seems to be making a lot of basic mistakes.

Another strong episode.

Is this a cosmetic defect on the front panel?

I got my Roamio Plus almost two months ago. Today, I noticed this slant vertical "line" (picture attached) on the front right of the unit. I don't remember it being there before. I thought it may be a scratch on the outside but the surface is smooth. Is it on anyone else's unit? :confused:

Pioneer DVR and HD Channels

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 08/06/2014 - 20:23
Does the Pioneer Elite DVR-57H DVD receive and record HD channels and video. I was originally looking at DVRs for simply copy VHS to Digital. When I came across the DVR-810 in a forum it sounded awesome. It had a DVD burner, and a tuner and the TiVo lifetime basic service. Later I found out the tuner did not receive HD channels and it did not record in HD. I don't know if this is a factor when recording VHS tapes but it is with over the air or cable HD. I have heard really good things about the Pioneers so I was wondering which other ones come with the TiVO service and HD support.
Also on the TiVo lifetime, is that built into all of the DVR-57H and DVR-810s or was that an option.

Hi. I am looking to buy the roamio plus, mini and life time subscriptions. Does TiVo have any specials to bundle or save money? Thanks

DOWNLOADING guide data?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 08/06/2014 - 18:51
When my Roamio says it's really downloading guide data, is it? If it is, is it purging it after or something? Why does the Roamio require internet access to access something that's stored locally? I don't have internet at home, and rely on my cell phone's tethering to get data to the Tivo. Most of the time, I don't have this on because it slows the phone down and drains the battery. Yet everytime I want to search for a show, I have to turn it on and then off again, in order to access something stored locally.

Partners - FX show with Kelsey Grammer and Martin Lawrence

I watched both premiere episodes of this, so you don't have to.

Terrible! I won't be back.

The premise of each episode was ridiculous, and an overly exaggerated laugh-track, worse than a Disney XD show, in 2014 is inexcusable.

It's a shameful waste of two comedic geniuses. It's really that bad.

'Legends' - Drama starring Sean Bean (GoT)

Quote: Based on the award-winning book by master spy novelist Robert Littell, Legends stars Sean Bean (Game of Thrones, The Lord of the Rings) as Martin Odum, a FBI agent with the ability to transform himself into a different person for each job. Quote: But his own identity comes into question when a mysterious stranger suggests that Martin isn't who he thinks he is. Looking forward to seeing 'Ned' again. :)

The first episode will air on TNT August 13. The first episode can be watched on the TNT website.

It's also available via magical means.

Standalone Remote Finder?

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 08/06/2014 - 14:48
No responses in "TiVo Help Center" after over 100 views.......maybe someone frequenting THIS section will know?

Originally posted "over there":

This may have been discussed previously, but I couldn't find it. I just bought a new Roamio "Basic" and my understanding is that it shares the exact same remote that's included with the "Plus" and the "Pro". If so, does anyone know of a standalone transmitter that can be used to activate the "remote finder" feature that's included in the Plus & Pro base units?

In another thread, I read the following post: "I believe that the dongle included with the TiVo Slide Pro Remote has a remote finder button". Does that mean that the dongle itself has the button......and, if so, could it be purchased separately and powered by a small plug-in USB power adapter to serve as a standalone "remote finder"? TIA!

Neither I nor my wife lose the remote very often, but if I/we should have a sudden attack of senility (we're old) or a lapse in memory.....the "remote finder" would be a cool feature to have. :)

Using MoCA with Airport Extreme

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 08/06/2014 - 14:02
Pertinent Details:

I just got a Roamio Plus. I have an existing Premiere. They are both on the first floor of my house. My Modem & Router are on the second floor of the house and too far away from either Tivo to connect directly with Ethernet. The router is an Airport Extreme. My cable provider is Comcast Xfinity.

Currently both boxes are set up using Wifi with G Adapters and each is in close proximity to an Airport Express set up to extend/boost the network. The signal on both boxes is 100%. Here's the thing though...I need to be able to stream from one Tivo to the other and it's my understanding that to do so I need to set up a MoCA network, that my Wifi network is not fast enough.

I've checked on the Internet, on Apple's Support forums and on the Tivo forum and nowhere can I find a direct answer to my question whether my Airport Extreme is compatible with a MoCA network. Most of the questions and answers have to do with Verizon's FIOS and since I have Xfinity they don't apply to me.

From some of what I've read I'm getting the impression that if I hook a MoCA adapter up to my Airport Extreme box and a second MoCA adapter up to my Tivo Premiere I should be good to go. However I'd sure appreciate someone who knows a lot more about this than I do confirming whether I'm correct.

Thanks for any help you can give.

Audio/video sync issue

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 08/06/2014 - 13:32
Recently it seems both of my Premieres are experiencing an issue of the audio and the video getting out of symc. I can correct it by hitting pause and then resuming but it seems to happen frequently. It is most noticeable when someone is speaking. Anyone else seeing this?

The Leftovers S1E6 "Guest" 8/03/14

Question No. 121: “In your opinion, do you believe the departed is in a better place?”

Were peeps too depressed to make an episode thread?

I rather liked that this focused on Nora's journey from her ritual shopping to meeting Holy Wayne. He's like the Dr. Phil of Leftovers "If pain starts to slip away, you seek it out, don’t you?” which explains why she sought out getting shot by the call girl.

Release the Android TiVo Stream update already

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 08/06/2014 - 09:53
I would love a reason to spend a little money i.e. buy a TiVo Stream. Not on iOS overpriced for what it is trash. My phone and my tablet is Android. I get it TiVo launched on the devices for simple people first, geeks are however invested in android and we have awaited patiently. Impatience is growing beyond disappointment becoming anger.

Black Screen when changing channels/tuners

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Wed, 08/06/2014 - 09:27
I've done some searching but can't quite find a thread the describes the behavior I'm seeing: I have a brand new Romaio Plus. I'm using Charter Cable with a tuning adapter. For the most part, all is well, with all 6 tuners allowing viewing/recording.

However some times when I flip between the tuners, I see only a black screen/no audio. Pressing Play doesn't make it go away, so it's not just paused. I thought at first maybe this was a slow tuning adapter/cable card issue, however I've noticed that the 30 minute buffer is intact. And in fact if I play with the Rew/FF/Advance buttons, I can get it to play. Then it continues to work fine after I'm caught up to live. It's just when I first switch to the tuner I get the problem. Additionally I sometimes see a similar issue when I change channels (using the same tuner I'm already on). The initial screen will be black, and only after 8-10 seconds do I get picture/sound. Sometimes it comes up without user intervention, sometimes I have to monkey with the ff/rew before it will.

Any thoughts on how to troubleshoot this?

Note neither of the above problems occurs ALL time - just often enough to be bothersome. From what I can tell so far, I've had NO problems with scheduled recordings getting done properly. (Although since it's summer I don't have a lot of those going on currently)
