TiVo Stream is Back In Stock! (Limited Quantities)

Posted on May 29th, 2018, by Michael

We’re very, very happy to say that we have limited stock of the TiVo Stream at the moment.

These units are refurbished.

 

 

The TiVo Stream is the ONLY way to get shows to stream to an iOS or Android device from a TiVo Premiere (any model Premiere) or from a TiVo Roamio and Roamio OTA (Plus and Pro models do not need the TiVo Stream).

If you have a Roamio OTA, for example, and you want to copy shows to your iPad for a trip, this is really the perfect solution. You just plug it into the same wired network that your Roamio or Premiere is on, add it to your TiVo.com account, and then you can either watch shows via the TiVo app, or even copy them to the app if you are on the same Wifi network.

See the TiVo Stream page on our website! And act fast – quantities here are most definitely limited.

TiVo Roamio Fan Replacement Kits – Roamio, Roamio OTA, and Roamio VOX OTA

Posted on May 10th, 2018, by Michael

We’ve been getting many, many reports of loud fans in the base Roamio units – the ones that look like this:

As best we can tell, TiVo has used two or more suppliers for the fans in these units, and possibly more than one model from some of these suppliers.

In order to figure out the best replacement option, we contacted several suppliers and tested many fans, and we now how what we think is the best possible replacement. This same model seems to be what TiVo is using in the current Roamio OTA Vox units.

We sell this fan as a kit with three torx tools, which are all necessary for installation:

We also have a video on that page that walks you through the installation, step by step.

This is compatible with model numbers TCD846500, TCD846510 and TCD846000.

Please note that this will NOT work with the Roamio Plus and Pro. We have that fan kit here.

Those TiVo BOLTs and DIRECTV HR54 Genies can both record in 4K, so you might end up needing all of this space sooner than you think!
