Welcome. Where did you buy the Roamio? TiVo+ is TE4 only. My signature has a link to abbreviations. Do yourself a favor and read some of the thread titles, going back two or three pages. Start with the Coffehouse forum.Hi
I'm new to this forum, just joined so I could ask a question or two.
Have a Roamio with lifetime program info. Missing the TiVo+ info. Is that normal ?
Make a few consecutive service connections. Sometimes that causes updates. I don't think anyone here explicitly asked for TiVo+. Many have asked to have it removed.Thanks for your reply.
Bought from Amazon.com in November 2017.....
Tivo button = TiVo Home (TE4) not TiVo Central (TE3), so I should be getting TiVo+
Someone is asking TiVo for those additions. Channels that are added, cable or OTA, are sometime checked but never favorites. I go through my channel settings/Favorite Channels and make the channels I watch Favorites. Then I set the guide ("A" option) to just display Favorites. Channels may be added, but I won't see them. I never use channel numbers. Only checked channels are used for the Search also.OK thanks : Second question, Can the automatic channel list updates/additions be turned off ?
Keeps adding channels from outside my viewing area. Its very annoying.
Some people report that, even on TE4, they've been spared the joy in life that is known as TiVo+. I refer to those TiVo machines as Golden Ticket boxes.Have a Roamio with lifetime program info. Missing the TiVo+ info. Is that normal ?
I have TiVo+ but no other ads/channels. I never accepted the TOS.Some people report that, even on TE4, they've been spared the joy in life that is known as TiVo+. I refer to those TiVo machines as Golden Ticket boxes.
I wonder if "series 5" is a typo on that blog post. Otherwise, why not just mention Roamio by name like they did for Bolt and Edge?That link says, in part:
It's available on TiVo EDGE™ and TiVo BOLT™ (a "series 5" or "series 6" device) with the latest software update ("Experience 4").
It also comes on Roamio (Series 5) platforms. Bolt is Series 6. EDGE is probably Series 7. A second opinion helps.
On my TE4 Roamio, the guide ads sometimes take a week off. But there is always a TiVo+ box on the Suggestions line.
People on here have said they are getting it for the Roamio/Series 5. My initial understanding that the Roamio was not going to get the ads/TiVo+ only to be quickly corrected by people on this forum (after discussing it on nationally syndicated radio). So now I am confused as to whether or not Roamio Pro users like myself are going to get it or not. I know what I am "missing" since I have it on the Vox. My TiVo Mini Vox works just fine with the Roamio.I wonder if "series 5" is a typo on that blog post.
I was originally told this was not the case and as such said so on Leo Laporte's radio show. After I posted the video, I was immediately corrected stating that it is going to be on the Roamio boxes with Hydra (TE4). It has been a few months since all of this happened and I have yet to see it on my Roamio Pro with TE4. So someone is wrong, just unsure who that would be.I was under the impression that ads, etc. would come to the Roamio boxes on TE4.
And in reading through the old thread, I now recall that you saw/listened to my call. So at this point, all I can say is ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. Who the heck knows? TiVo_Ted seemed to have gotten scared off (can you blame him?) but for now, I'm going to say it's not coming to the Roamio Pro with TE4.I was under the impression that ads, etc. would come to the Roamio boxes on TE4.
Very true. Let's put it this way, if someone asks me if the Roamio is going to get TiVo+ and pre-roll ads, I'm just going to say no...until someone replies to my response and says, "I have a Roamio Pro and I have TiVo+ and pre-roll ads." ¯\_(ツ)_/¯Well, no one ever said that TiVo is a master of consistency. How many people still have older, operating Lifetime TiVo boxes after having responded to and taken advantage of a TiVo promotion to transfer the Lifetime to a newly-purchased Bolt box for $99?
