Chromecast and TiVo - Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 04/14/2015 - 22:56
I've never been able to cast the TiVo screen from my Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 or my Samsung Galaxy S6, both with KitKat 4.4.2 i could get sound but no watchable video.

No longer a problem the new Galaxy S6 Edge can indeed cast the TiVo Stream video and audio very well I might add.

Shows in Tivo Desktop not appearing on TiVo

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 04/14/2015 - 21:44
I'm using Tivo Desktop Plus 2.8.2 on a Windows 7-64 computer with a Series 3 HD TiVo. I have a bunch of recordings on the PC, and haven't used the software much lately, but when I look in the "Now playing on (computername)" folder on the TiVo, there are no shows at all -- the folder is empty.

The computer can see the TiVo just fine, and I just started some program transfers from the TiVo to the PC and they're proceeding perfectly.

Why are no shows appearing in the TiVo folder?

I'm trying to troubleshoot this; does anyone have a troubleshooting procedure for this?

I'm thinking it could be something like the computer's firewall blocking a critical port -- I'll try turning that off and see if it makes any difference.

Thanks in advance

TiVo mini stuttering

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 04/14/2015 - 20:58

I'm curious if anyone else has had 'stuttering' issues with their TiVo mini.

Here's my setup:

- TiVo Premiere 4 with MoCa enabled
- One TiVo mini that's hooked up to my old 13" CRT TV in a laundry room.

Because the Mini was stuttering -- usually only on certain channels -- I thought maybe it was the cable company. But the stuttering does not happen on the Premiere 4. I did have the cable company come out to check, and they gave me some new wires, but nothing helped.

Thinking the Mini was probably bad, I just bought a new one (especially since they came with the lifetime subscriptions this month) to replace the old one -- but it's having the exact same trouble!

As far as the channels I generally have trouble with, they're local broadcast stations, I believe in HD. The Mini is set to display at 4:3 ratio, in any resolution (480, 720, 1080) because it 'tested' good with all those displays. (I tried setting it to only 480i/p, but then the picture didn't look quite right on other stations.)

For some odd reason, the Mini can't be set for the older SD menus, but that's a complaint for a different topic.

What else can I check?

Video Providers on Mini

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 04/14/2015 - 19:58
Why won't TiVo fix the bug with Video Providers on the Mini? I have unchecked AOL On (and now Yahoo) on my Roamio, but they still appear on the Mini.

It's annoying to see Video Providers that I don't want to see on the Mini.

iOS app stopped working with Roamio Plus

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 04/14/2015 - 19:05
It's been working for a year and a half and has suddenly stopped accessing my Roamio Plus on both iPad and iPhone. It just does not see it. If I tap to change devices, it just shows the Mini that is on the network, not the Roamio. I reset routers, restarted the Roamio, deleted and reinstalled the app, changed network from Moca to wifi and back, all to no effect. I can, however, access the Romaio from my Mac with kmttg. TiVo support has been no help. Suggestions will be appreciated.

S# Front panel all lights and Gray video

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 04/14/2015 - 15:57
After about 10 years of service and getting 'her' 3rd HDD last summer, my (now backup) Series 3 is doing this odd thing.

Out of the blue while in stand by mode, the front panel lights all come on (as if booting) and when the TV is powered on, it is a solid gray screen unresponsive to inputs. I power cycle it with a 10 second pause between off and on, and it boots and seems to behave normally. At some random time later, it has this happen again. It did this last night and the bright display woke me up... I left her unplugged.

Suggestions? Is she jealous of my Roamio that pushed her out of the living room? :confused:

Bates Motel 306 - "Norma Louise" (Apr. 13,2015)

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 04/14/2015 - 15:19
:eek: Best episode of the series so far!!

All I can say (again) about Freddie Highmore and Vera Farmiga is that their acting abilities as far as emotional highs and lows and psychotic behavior is amazingly believable!

Norman has crossed another major line towards his transformation into Tony Perkins' (Hitchcock's) original (and definitive) portrayal of Norman Bates.

I freakin' LOVE this show! :up::up:

I can't understand why there aren't regular threads discussing each episode. :confused: I can't be the only fan of "Bates Motel" on TCF, can I?

Younger - Full Season - *SPOILERS*

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 04/14/2015 - 15:01
I'm just getting caught up with this and am enjoying it. It's not the best, but it's miles ahead of shows like The Odd Couple and One Big Happy where I canceled the 1P within the first or second episode. I've never been a big fan of Debi Mazar but so far she's okay.

It has a tiny Selfie-ish feel to it (which I liked) which means it's likely not long for this world.

Of course she won't be able to keep up the charade forever--especially if her daughter comes back and she keeps running into people from her "old" life--but I'm interested in how they handle it all.

Anyone else watching?

Question about Transferring Shows

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 04/14/2015 - 13:01
I just ordered 2 Roamio Plus's to Replace my Series 3 HD and Premier. I know that on those units, you can transfer shows back and forth if the show permits it. My Question, how does the Roamio Plus handle that? Does it do the same? and also, can you Stream from one Tivo to the other instead of having to transfer? I know that the Mini Streams.. Just not sure how it works between 2 Roamio Tivo's

Thanks, Connor

Mini and Series 3 HD same room, Remote conflicts

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 04/14/2015 - 12:29
Is there any way to have a Mini and S3-HD in the same cabinet. The mini (a newer model) set for RF. But the RF remote must still send IR as the Series 3 HD unit responds to it's buttons. And secondly the Mini will also respond to certain buttons on the HD remote. If I hide the mini then it does not respond to the HD remote, but unfortunatly the HD will still respond to the Mini remote. Guess it's time to start trimming down on some equipment

Tivos stopped internet data download

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 04/14/2015 - 12:25
Yep both stopped downloading data on the same day. First off some things happened to make it tricky to figure out what is going on.

1. Tivo launched the replacement of their season pass manager with something new. To be fair the "succeeded" under downloads was OK for earlier the same day of the failure.

2. My router decided to warn me the firmware was due for upgrade.
Asus RT-AC87u
3. Can not see either Tivo on my LAN yet everything else is functioning meaning PCs MACs and assorted wireless tablets.

Now after resetting every item on my network, router, modem, Tivos and computers with no sight of the tivos on my network I moved on to the last thing I could think of the Firewall.

Searched for the definitive Firewall settings required by Tivo and to my surprise this was not as easy as first thought. Also I was told if UP &P should eliminate the need for any setting as far as the firewall was concerned.
This is what I set the it up for:
homeip.netport 8080 - wan [router] lan - 80 [tivo 1]
homeip.netport 8443 - wan [router] lan - 443 [tivo 1]
homeip.netport 9080 - wan [router] lan - 80 [tivo 2]
homeip.netport 9443 - wan [router] lan - 443 [tivo 2]

Not sure what all the above means so my entries could have been misconstrued.

So as a test I turned off the firewall on my router (Asus RT-AC87u) to eliminate this part of the problem meaning now all ports should be readily available but that did not fix the problem.

I am using Advanced IP Scanner to check the presence of the Tivos as well as going to them physically and attempting to setup correctly.

Finally this was all functioning up until yesterday.


Gotham S01E19 "Beasts of Prey"

A snipped finger falling on the floor is good, but a snipped finger wearing a ring falling on the floor is better. :)

I like how Loeb struck back... very sneaky. Kinda hard to believe that the story wouldn't have leaked out with as much corruption as there is in GCPD. The whole affair draws an even deeper line in the sand between Gordon and Loeb, but now Gordon has some power.

It's a shame Nygma is going to turn. Gordon always gets results out of him because (unlike Harvey) he's always polite to Edward, and sorta respects him.

Avoid the "coming next week" trailer during the credits if you don't want a huge annoying spoiler. EDIT: Now that I look at IMDb, there are photos all over next weeks episode that spoil it. It will probably be in a commercial too. Spoiler: It isn't Leslie that is targeted by The Ogre because of Gordon's actions, it's Barbara.

Netflix and YouTube Apps GONE

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 04/14/2015 - 09:58
I have a brand new Roamio Plus (T6 actually) and two Tivo minis connected via MoCA. They are rented from my local (Canadian) cable provider. They worked flawlessly for 6 weeks after installation. Last week the Netflix and YouTube apps disappeared from the 'Find Movies' menu. They disappeared on the Roamio and ONE of the minis. By the next morning, the apps were gone from all three devices. I have rebooted and reconnected all the devices multiple times. I have searched endlessly for solutions. These apps do not even appear on the list of video providers. I have called my providers support, they had me do the things I had already tried, they do not have a solution. They are sending someone out later this week, and I suspect the installer is just going to take the easy route and swap out the boxes. I just don't think this feels like a hardware issue. Any ideas or suggestions? The software version is not the latest (20.4.5c I think), and it does not appear to have been updated recently. Nothing in the TiVo or router configuration was changed. The app literally disappeared within two hours of using it.

I had reboot loop to GSOD twice Sept 2014 and Nov 2014 I did ran WD diagnosis and KS 54 on Nov that did passed no issue. not making any sense WD diagnosis already passed I suspect about Tivo software release cause this issue ? i’m might be wrong. Now My 2 TB drive is under 3 warranty i haven’t got chance to call WD support for replacement I decide to get 2TB WD20EURX i hope i got this write would be waste of time. would apprentice anyone opinion what to make of this issue
1 thing i want to point out while it was GSOD i had unplug power and replug it then i got 4 lights blinking and I shut off. I turn off power for 15 mins later work normal then swap back original drive work fine.
it is TCD746320 I was gonna let’s 320GB run for few months to see what happen I didn’t want to take chance to lose original drive

Issues with episode names on push to TIVO with pyTivo

TiVoCommunity Forum Recent Threads - Tue, 04/14/2015 - 05:34
I have a T6, and am having an issue with episode names. I am using Metagenerator to generate metadata files. I can see the individual metadata .txt files are correct, and they list the proper episode name. When I push them to my T6, all episodes show up with the same episode name. It doesn't matter if I send them in groups, or one at a time...they still all have the same episode name.

Thanks for any help you can provide, and if anyone thinks there may be a better place to get help with this, please let me know!
