DIRECTV R10 Units Rebooting

Posted on June 12th, 2015, by Jeff

For the past month or two, many DIRECTV TiVo R10 users have found their TiVos rebooting and freezing randomly. We have notified DIRECTV about the problem and they tell us that TiVo is working on the issue. Based on feedback from some very astute customers, we have come to learn that BBC America (channel 264) will cause your R10 to freeze or reboot very quickly, so you might want to cancel your BBCA season passes (sorry, Orphan Black fans) until the problem is resolved.

UPDATE, 7/15: Discovery Channel and possibly History Channel are also being impacted by this problem. DIRECTV engineers have verified the problem and are pushing TiVo engineers to help get the issue resolved. We are cautiously optimistic.

Buying a Roamio? Get a Slide Pro for $30

Posted on May 12th, 2015, by Michael

If you’re in the market for a new TiVo Roamio, and you’d prefer to get a TiVo Slide Pro remote with it, we’ve got a deal for you. For an additional $30, we’ll swap the regular remote that comes with your Roamio for the Slide Pro remote.

The only catch? You have to call. It’s a phone-only special!

Give us a ring at 888-932-5633 (that would be 888 WEAKNEES if you could dial it on your Slide Remote) and we’ll hook you up.

Obviously, this offer is limited to the number of Roamios your are purchasing in the same order.

Note: this will work with any TiVo Roamio version including the OTA version, and any size, stock or upgraded model.

Instead of buying the two items separately, and leaving you with a second remote, we’ve created a bundle. We swap out the Mini’s regular remote with the Slide Pro, and we pass the savings on to you.

So, for an additional $30, you can upgrade your new Mini from the regular remote to the Slide Pro remote. The package – which still include lifetime TiVo service for the Mini – is $189.99.
