  1. TiVo Edge
    During the summer a dozen or two of the channels I receive as part of my cable service stopped working, showing a "not authorized" message. After more than one support person visit someone came out with new cable cards, telling me that the old cards had "expired." I didn't know that was...
  2. TiVo Edge
    I have been working with tech support to resolve a issue with my Edge. When I go to either Netflix or Amazon Prime, I will often get a error message that it is unable to play a movie. When I reboot the Tivo it will go back to working. This is a issue on my first Edge purchased new in Sept. 2021...

    Just got a new in box Roamio and wondered if it's best to activate and connect to TiVo first, then add the cable card... or put the cable card in before powering up? I'm kind of terrified of doing something massively wrong and somehow screwing up one or the other (or both). When I got my TiVo...
  4. TiVo Coffee House - TiVo Discussion
    About a month ago my cable channels all.became unavailable overnight. I'd been dreading making the call and wading thru Holds and transfers till I got someone with A brain. BOY WAS I SHOCKED! Total time on phone ten minutes, FIRST AGENT. KNEW TIVO and wasn't spouting script. and.... Wait for...
  5. TiVo Coffee House - TiVo Discussion
    Apologies, but I'm not sure exactly where to post this, but thought I'd try here and see if I have better luck. My TiVo Bolt's HD died *again*, and rather than order another 3TB HD from Weaknees and replace it myself as I did last time, I decided to order a Weaknees Refurb 1TB (with a new...
  6. TiVo Bolt DVR/Streamer
    This is frustrating... My TiVo Bolt's HD died _again_, and rather than order another 3TB HD from Weaknees and replace it myself as I did last time, I decided to order a Weaknees Refurb 1TB (with a new Lifetime subscription) unit from Amazon since it would arrive in one day (free shipping...
  7. TiVo Bolt DVR/Streamer
    I have a pair of 3TB Bolt+ units (long story). One is in normal use and one is emergency spare. The main unit failed and I will be ordering an external 3TB Tivo-formatted drive from Weakknees. I want that unit to return to being the primary unit so that the stupid 2.5" HDD in the backup unit...
  8. TiVo Coffee House - TiVo Discussion
    I am in the Atlanta area & have a Roamio with a Comcast cable card. All works good. I am reading a lot here how Xfinity is slowly moving some channels to IPTV and they then won't work with TiVO. My Xfinity TV package is a basic digital lineup, but I honestly only use my TiVo these days to...
  9. TiVo Help Center
    My tuning adapter started the stupid blinking yellow light a few days ago and rebooting it didn't help. So I can only get non-SDV channels. I contacted Cox yesterday, asked for cable card support, and was led through the standard waste-of-time reboot this and that crap. A service tech came to...
  10. TiVo Bolt DVR/Streamer
    My Bolt is has been happily acting as my Verizon FiOS set top box for years, and at the moment has over tons of recordings stored. Recently we started seeing pixelation on certain live TV channels (oddly on only about a dozen channels -- most are fine). The Verizon tech said that if the coax...

    Question: If I put one of my Roamios onto a new TiVo account, thereby getting a new Media Access Key, will my Cable Card pairing get wiped? :eek::fearscream: In other words, does the MAK have anything to do with generating Data or Host ID numbers?
  12. TiVo Roamio DVRs
    Anyone having problems with their tuning adapters with the Roamio Pro? Daily, I'm missing more than a few channels. When I reboot the tuning adapter and the Roamio it fixes the problem for a day or so then it goes right back to missing channel. Assuming it was the cable card or the tuning...
  13. TiVo Bolt DVR/Streamer
    I need some help with a new TIVO Bolt setup using FIOS with a Cable Card. I am currently using a Tivo Bolt and two mini boxes I have FIOS for internet only. Out of the ONT (optical network terminal) I have an Ethernet cable going to the WAN port on my router. Then a Ethernet cable from my...
  14. TiVo Bolt DVR/Streamer
    I have been having pixelation and audio skips/freezes on one channel. 747 MSNBC through spectrum charter cable. It’s been going on for weeks. The spectrum cable man came out today and checked our connections and signal strength. Everything looked great. He suggested that the issue lies with the...
  15. TiVo Bolt DVR/Streamer
    I have a 4-tuner TiVo Bolt, 1TB capacity. Currently I have it connected to digital cable with a Cable Card, but if I were to cut the cord, would I be able to use that TiVo to record from an antenna? I've searched Google, and this forum, but every time I enter "antenna" or "OTA" into the...
  16. TiVo Roamio DVRs
    I purchased a Tivo Roamio Plus on ebay recently. I successfully upgraded it to 8TB, thanks to the TivoCommunity forums! All seems well except that I can't seem to get Verizon to successfully pair a cablecard to this device. When I purchased the Roamio on ebay, it came with a cable card in the...

    I just purchased a Bolt and a Bridge to create a MoCa network so I can still use my Roamio plus. The TiVo product page for the Bridge says: "Do you have multiple TiVo devices? Want to network them all together seamlessly? Simply connect the TiVo-renewed Bridge to your home’s existing coax wiring...

Device: Tivo Bolt and Romaio with Cable cards and Cisco Tuning adapters Problem: Beginning in mid Dec 2019 thru Jan 2020, both Tivo boxes would connect on ANY channel for 3-10min, loose...

    I have a Tivo Bolt and Tivo Premiere, each with Spectrum. Each has tuning adapter Cisco STA 1520 and Cable Card Cisco PKM 802. They've been working without issue for years. Then last Thursday at 2 pm, my Tivo flashed "No tuning adapter." I checked. They both went out at same time. I...
  20. TiVo Edge
    We just got a new Edge - 2TB, upgraded to be a 3TB by weaKnees - and we hooked it up to our tv and everything connected and started up and was working fine and then it got to the cable card part of the set up and we realized we hadn't put that in. So we unplug the Tivo, put the cable card in...
