What deal was that? I must've missed it.
Apparently only went on for a couple of hours yesterday morning. I missed it too. Not that I need another...
Oh cool thanks Fofer. I didn't need this deal anymore anyway. TiVo FINALLY made good on their promise to me from over a year ago and sent me two slide pros free, and the dongles!
Perhaps you didn't read my prior posts, I got the slide pro remote for free after spending 20 minutes explaining to the TiVo rep that we would both be better off if I didn't return the v1 mini I had purchased less than 30 days earlier. He also told me that they didn't have any dongles.
I wasn't going to argue more over $15 when I was getting a $50 remote for free.
I read it and understood. I'm only saying to call back to get the dongle simply because they include it free if you tell them it's for a mini or premiere. I didn't look at it like I'm asking for more after they were so generous by giving me the remotes free, because the dongles aren't any real extra cost or revenue for them anyway apparently.
I certainly get your point though. I felt the same way for a couple days before I finally decided to call back anyway, due to the reasons stated above.
There was no ambiguity as to which TiVo I needed the remote for and $15 wasn't worth another long call. I had the dongle ordered within an hour of my original call.
Good deal then, no skin off my back, happy for you. Enjoy your Slide Pro!
Curious, when you say upsample are you talking about taking content other than 1080p/60 (720p, 480p, 480i) and converting that to 1080p/60 to output to the TV? If so why not just let the TV do that? Both my primary TVs produce a better picture when I output native from the TiVO and let the TV handle the conversion to 1080p/60.
A lot of people don't like the delay when switching resolutions when using native from the TiVo. That's why they like doing all the scaling in the tivo.
Does that delay manifest itself when simply switching between channels? Because I am experiencing that delay (along flashes of black/green) and I didn't know if it was the fault of my new AV Receiver (with HDMI,) my new Roamio, or my TV.
Where do I go to fix it?
Only if they're different resolutions and refresh rates. If it's the same it won't delay until it locks in.
I wouldn't say it's a "fault". It's just based on how fast whatever device you're using after the TiVo takes to scale/deinterlace (AV receiver, Video Processsor, TV, etc) the new signal.
To "fix" it, the best thing to do is set the TiVo to output one resolution, preferably 1080p60 (for TV broadcasts, 1080p24 for streaming/movies) if available, or 1080i if not or 720p if that happens to be the native rez of your display.
Have both your Roamio and Mini received the "OnePass" update? My new Roamio received the update seemingly immediately, but I have several newly-purchased and installed Minis still sporting the old "SeasonPass" software -- at a little over 24 hours and counting. (A short of satisfying experience.)
The Minis are updating on their own schedule, apparently. My Roamio got it but my Mini has not, and it's been almost a week.
My Mini has not received the update and still shows 20.4.5c.
I've received the One Pass update on my Roamio. Looking forward to the Mini updates next.
When will next mini come out????? I'm thinking about buying mini v2 but I don't watch enough tv in the other room but it would be nice being able to watch live tv in two rooms.
If I did buy tivo mini for another room I would only use it 6-7hrs or less PER month. I could wait 6-8months if new tivo mini is coming out. DECISION DECISION
Version 1 of the Mini came out two years ago.Version 2 was only released last month.
The original Mini was released in 2012. The current Mini was just released in February 2015. We won't be getting another Mini refresh before 2017 or 2018.
Picked up a Mini 2 at my local Best Buy today. Just happened to look, not expecting it to be the 93000, but it was. Haven't activated it yet...
