Same error & problems with Pandora too
We have 2 Series 3 TiVo XL boxes.
We have been having problems with Pandora going on 3 or 4 weeks now. Songs get stuck and the same note repeats over and over, sometimes for just a few seconds and sometimes for a minute or more.
So I headed over the Network Diagnostics and sure enough, I am getting the same port configuration error on both TiVo boxes which are connecting via the WiFi:
The port(s) listed below need to be opened on your router. For more information, review your router manual or contact your ISP.
TCP port 8080
I called Verizon Fios and (no surprise) they wouldn't help me. I am using the Verizon supplied Actiontec router because my Internet comes over coaxial cable.
We stream Netflix on our TiVo and have no problems with that, just Pandora.
I have tried setting up the port forwarding on the router per this article support. tivo. com/ app/ answers/ detail/ a_id/ 402/ kw/ ports and this did not help.
I have noticed when I use another box to stream Pandora that sometimes that box needs to buffer the stream. I wonder if this is the problem and the TiVo XL just doesn't do a very good job handling that?
But that still doesn't explain why this has only been a problem for the last several week...or why we are getting this port error now.
