make 1 Tivo not seen.

How do I prevent 3 of My Tivo's from playing back 1 Tivo Roamio Pro contents?

I have 4 Tivo's and I don't want the other 3 from playing back recordings from 1 of them.

I changed the settings on Tivo.com. I even disabled Video sharing on ALL the boxes and they all still share. Its been almost a week since I changed the settings. I even rechecked and unclicked again.

I also had all the Tivo's connect to the server a few times and I restarted all the boxes.

Still they ALL share no matter what I do.

My Tivos are:

Tivo 3 (wireless G)
Tivo XL4 (wireless N)
Roamio Pro (Ethernet)
Roamio basic (Internal Wifi)

Thanks for any help you can provide.

There maybe some easy way I don't know about but there are 2 for sure ways to do it. One is to setup another TiVo account and move the 1 Tivo into it - which will change the MAC number. The other way is to setup a subnet in your home for the 1 TIVo (you will need a second router).

But is this not what the Video sharing option should do?

"Checking this setting allows you to share videos you've recorded or downloaded to this DVR with other TiVo boxes on your local network registered in your account."

I don't get what is going wrong.

Ps. We talking about R rated content here not M. lol

Go to TiVo.com and disable the TiVoToGo features on the parental TiVo.

You may have to force a couple of connections to TiVo.com by the DVR in questions for the changes to propagate,

Have you tried simply enabling the Parental Controls?

Yeah that how it is now. But I thought the point of the options on TiVo.com was to be able to block this. I guess ill keep messing with it.

It should work. Those settings can sometimes take a while to propagate, but you said it's been a week so that should be plenty of time. Honestly it's been a long time since I've actually tried them to confirm that they actually work. Maybe they're broken and TiVo doesn't realize it. I have a problem with my account where it somehow reverted to listing an address I haven't live at for almost 10 years. If I change it it appears to work, but as soon as I log out and then back in it reverts to the old address again. So they seem to be having some trouble with their system
