    JohnRed Tivo advertising and error V117

    Mar 19, 2017


    For the past few months, when I play a recorded show, the Roamio plays advertising before the show. It's usually the same annoying ad inserted by Tivo, and not part of the recorded show. At the same time I started getting error V117, and need to reboot sometimes to clear it.
    Very frustrating to pay top dollar for a premium.DVR, then taken advantage of by Tivo advertising.

    The same with me. I wrote them a complaint email and they responded that they are going to take off the ads. We will see o guess.

    Agreed, very frustrating. If you don't get the V117 error, you can press the forward scan button and your show will start.

    What's so annoying, is that you pay good money to get ride of commercials. Then Tivo puts the commercials back in. Let's see, buggie software and streaming (BTW, my Roku has worked flawlessly), this could be Tivo's last gasps.
