Broken Ethernet on your TiVo? We Have an Adapter . . .

Posted on August 17th, 2016, by Michael

We’ve been getting a lot of calls and emails from customers who have failing ethernet ports on their TiVo DVRs. Most of these problems seem to stem from a lightning strike at the customer’s house. After the lightning, the ethernet/network port is just totally dead.

While we are unable to replace the port and solve the problem, we do offer an ethernet adapter that plugs into the TiVo’s USB port. That gets these boxes on a working wired network again. In some cases, customers move to Wifi, but for the best speed and stability, a wired network is king.

TiVo Roamio and Roamio OTA Fan Noise

Posted on July 1st, 2016, by Michael

We’ve been getting a lot of inquiries about fans for the TiVo Roamio and the TiVo Roamio OTA DVRs – models that start with TCD846. The fans in these units are small and can get pretty loud over time.

Until now, we didn’t have a ready source of these, and we didn’t have instructions of replacing them. We now have both.

You can buy the fan here:

TiVo Roamio and Roamio OTA Fan and Tools

and you can watch a video on how to install it here:

At the moment, we are only selling the fans with the Torx tools you need (three sizes: 8, 10, and 15).

TiVo BOLT Price Drop. Now $199.99 (500GB) and $299.99 (1TB)…with a catch.

Posted on May 3rd, 2016, by Jeff

Prices just dropped on the TiVo BOLT, down $100 to $199.99 for a 500gb and down $100 to $299.99 for a 1TB.

However, the new version of the TiVo BOLT does *not* include a year of TiVo service (valued at $149).

For a limited time, we have both version of the BOLT available, one version of the TiVo BOLT with a year of service, one version of the TiVo BOLT with no service included. Once we run out of the BOLTs with the year of service, we will no longer sell them.

The new version (V2) of the BOLT should ship out later this week; we currently estimate them arriving on or about 5/6.

The *only *difference between BOLT v1 and BOLT v2 is the inclusion (v1) or exclusion (v2) of a year of service.

The upshot: If you plan to pay for All-In pricing ($599), then get V2. Otherwise, get V1 while they last.
