Advertisements First post here - been a Tivo user since 2004. In the process of cutting the cable (fully disconnected just last week) I've picked up 2 Roamios with Lifetime service included via eBay. Overall I am extremely happy with both but do have an oddity with one of them. Ideas? I transferred service and have been using a Roamio OTA 1TB for 4 months. Other than the fact that it had the newer UI I was happy and still am. Trying to finish my household Tivo setup I went to reconfigure my Mini to use this device. It sees it, but once I choose it, it works for 30-40 seconds then starts into this terrible "internet problem" issue. Tivo support was ... well, not effective. This isn't the problem I wish to solve necessarily. The Mini connects fine to my other Tivo OTA 500GB and that works for now. PyTivo saw this box as did Tivo Online. Yet transfers FROM this box to my PC or other Tivos don't finish. Can I post an image? Well, when I go to tivo and look at my device settings, this particular device has N/A listed under Video Sharing AND Enable Video Downloads. Why? I can't find any limitations like this listed for this particular model and I don't see a setting that would deny it. This again was transferred from a previous owner, but so was the other Roamio and it has checkboxes under these settings. Part 2 - Thanks to these forums (I've been a lurker forever) I found the instructions for installing the older UI. I did that this morning and I will be SO MUCH MORE HAPPY with the older menus that all my other devices have (and the return of the back button). Anyway, I thought this might help me but I think it's worse as something I tried things my machine is a pre-Series-4 machine and too old to do transfers. Do I just lose this with the old UI? Is it just a fact of Tivo Life? PyTivo no longers sees this machine. I will try connecting the older Mini again to see if it somehow now works. I want to acquire another one to complete my Tivo network ... but not if I cannot connect to this particular machine. OR ... I shop for a different Roamio OTA. My plan was also to freely transfer recordings to my PC or other Tivos but that is the main problem here. Again, any ideas? Or did I simply miss an obvious limitation? What is w/o acc. below and if I shop for a new machine, what indicates any limitations? Thanks in advance.
