The Disney App is not coming and never was
Middle of Feb. and still have the non-responsive issue requiring to play a recorded show, then pause, skip and the rest all work again.
I'm dying for an update on this. Fix the issues so I can feel comfortable buying one...this is getting real, real obnoxious.
Sorry if this has been addressed in an earlier post From what I have heard there is still no way to transfer video recordings from Tivo Edge to PC via Tivo Desktop or pyTivo software. So my question is can the Edge Tivo communicate with an older Premiere model? If so if I was thinking of buying an Edge Tivo and retain my Premiere Tivo if I would be able to transfer files from Edge to Premiere unit and then premiere to PC? Just thinking of possible workarounds?
I am now on my second Edge box. The first one, which I purchased on Amazon, suddenly stopped pairing the Lux remote in RF mode. Really strange. TiVo sent me a replacement box, and it is RF pairing with the Lux remote fine. Still can't get the Slide Pro paired though.
Interesting things of note, between the Amazon Edge and the Tivo replacement Edge:
The box has a sticker printed with, amongst other things, the TSN, serial number, etc... There is a label "ARRIS F/G: 613868-002-00" on the Amazon Tivo, it reads "ARRIS F/G: 613868-001-00" on the box Tivo supplied me.
The UPC of the Amazon Tivo box is "8 51342 00035 3" and the UPC of the replacement box Tivo sent me is "8 51342 00059 9"
Also, the fan is significantly quieter. It wasn't obnoxiously loud on the Amazon unit, but could be heard if the room was completely silent. The replacement box, very quiet, you need to be right next to it to hear the fan.
I straight up asked Tivo if they were still supporting/updating the Edge product and they wouldn't respond to me. Simply went quiet.
Well they seem to have a large base of cable companies using customized MSO boxes, and the software likely has a lot that can cross over to their Edge product. I'd think that issues such as trickplay bugs that get fixed on a MSO box would also fix it on the Edge, Bolt, Roamio, etc..
Trying to talk to an agent there, whether it is tech support or billing, that is so much overseas agents with scripts, that is pretty disappointing.
Tivo to Go strategy, I plan on buying a Tivo edge as my main unit but also retaining my Tivo Premiere and using the Tivo online function to transfer files from the Edge to Premiere and using the premiere tivo desktop or similar software to retain the option to moving Tivo files to my desktop. For those using the Edge does this make sense?
Seems like a lot of extra effort to use a $400 product that should have have the functionality that older boxes had built in.
I have been having this issue with Netflix, let’s say I finish watching Netflix and I go to live tv, when I go back to Netflix it gives an error. I have to reload and exit Netflix numerous times for it to work..since my boxes got the latest software it’s being doing this issue. Help! If anyone knows how to fix it.
Well, I finally bought the Tivo Edge and it works as expected and I am using my older Tivo Premiere as a conduit to be able to continue to used Tivo to Go. I was able to purchase it for $249 via Amazon so I am happy with the price. Now still playing around and learning
I would love to see someone do a TiVo Edge customization, taking the internals and installing them into a bigger custom case allowing for bigger and better hard drives.
I would just love for TiVo themselves to fix all the darn bugs in the Edge!
They kept extending my 30 day return period while I waited and waited. I finally got sick of waiting and returned the POS yesterday!
Can anyone summarize the main issues with the edge, I have been interested in getting one.
From what I've seen on this board TIVO isn't supporting the Edge anymore. I'd think about purchasing one if they fixed the many issues with the box.
Until the MG3 hits cable partners it is going to be quiet
Just read this thread.
The “Edge” is a byproduct of the Arris MG3. Remember retail is nothing to TiVo. Cable companies are everything. So until the MG3 hits cable companies TiVo isn’t going to do squat
I understand that, but your sentence didn’t make any sense when I read it. Now reading it again today, I believe the word “his” was supposed to be “has”.
Is that correct?
