    I just got a Roamio OTA. IT is set up and working, but I find that it needs an internet connection just to delete a recorded show.
    The show is on the hard drive, it certainly doesn't need to phone home to delete that.

    Has anyone found a way to make the Roamio work without internet at all times?
    I turn off my internet connection when not in use.

    thanks

    Why do you turn off your Internet when not in use? You don't have any smart phones or tablets devices then? Seems like saying, " I turn off the power to the house when not in use. "

    When I'm not using any devices, or sleeping I don't need internet.
    Don't need it, so why pay electricity to run it?

    If that's true, I think it's something new.

    This question is in the wrong forum; it belongs it the main Roamio forum.

    See new thread.

    Using Internet doesn't use any more electricity than a lamp.
