Why am i getting a Temporary Service Connection error message?


Did you go into Settings, Phone and Network, Change network settings, and inform the TiVo of the changes, especially to the SSID (which you should not be broadcasting)?

I'm pretty sure the TiVo doesn't need to know the router's password, if you mean the password you have to enter to access your router via a web browser for purposes of changing settings on it, although if you're running any kind of wireless encryption on that router the TiVo will need to know whatever password is associated with that.

And while you're at it, consider giving everything on your home network that doesn't leave the house a fixed IP address that lies outside of your router's DHCP address pool, and making that address pool only a little bit bigger than the number of devices you anticipate needing an IP address assigned via DHCP once you've handed out fixed addresses to everything that doesn't travel.

Do you have a Tivo Premier and are you experiencing wireless communication...


Recenty, I discovered that devices were dropping off of my wireless network (Netgear N300 wireless N with DSL modem). After trial and error, the solution to the wireless communication problems was to create a wireless N bridge using the Tivo Wireless N adapters.

To use this feature, you will need two Tivo wireless N adapters. One wireless N adapter should be set to bridge and plugged into an available ethernet port into your router. The second adapter should be set to client and plugged into the ethernet port in the back of the Tivo Premier. Once the power has been applied to both wireless adapters and the Wireless adapter (connected to the router) has connected to an available address on your router, press and hold the button (on top of each adapter) to establish a secure wireless connection between both adapters.

Once each adapter has established communication, you will have a separate 5Ghz Wi Fi signal (as well as a channel )dedicated to you Tivo devices throughout the house. Each Tivo Premier added to the house should have the wireless N adapter and connected using the secure connection to the wireless bridge by pressing the button on each adapter (the one on the router as well as the one on the Tivo to install).

If sucessfully installed, you should be able to connect to all Tivos on the network for management as well as streaming. If communication between the Tivos isn't successful, you will have to restart each Tivo and establish a new connection to the Tivo service.

Another suggestion when using the wireless N adapters is to setup a static IP address on each Tivo that is higher than the IP address assigned to the wireless adapter. Each Tivo utilized two IP addresses for each device (one for the adapter and one for the Tivo). You may have to check the router administration screen to determine the IP addresses used for the wireless adapters before establishing a static IP address for the Tivos. If you assign static IP addresses to each Tivo, you will have to restart each Tivo and reconnect them to the Tivo service to establish proper network mapping.

With this wireless network configuration, you will ensure that your Tivos are connected to the service using high speed, dedicated wireless N communication for streaming purposes between the services offered while not impacting other computers, servers, video game machines, and tablets that are connected into your house.

Since the Roamio uses a built in wireless adapter, you may not have success in adding a Roamio to the wireless bridge created on your router unless you disable the built in wireless adapter and purchase the external wireless N model from Tivo.

Tivo Premier xl4 won't work right with Charter Cable tuning adapter


You need to have a cable card from Charter inserted into the TiVo, and it'll have to be "paired" with the equipment at the cable company's head end, and on top of that, if they do what's called Switched Digital Video, where some channels have to be specifically asked for every so often to get put on the cable at "some carrier frequency", you need what's called a tuning adapter which is a separate box that connects to the TiVo via a USB cable, and which also connects to the cable company cable (best way is with cable splitter so that one leg "dead ends" at tuning adapter).

First you need to take the tuning adapter out of the system entirely and make sure the cable card is working. Then you can add it back into the mix.

And you may need to harass Charter's customer service department a lot to get this stuff to actually work.

A good place to ask further questions about this is the TiVo Community Forum (which is not an official TiVo, Inc. site), which is where lots and lots of knowledgeable TiVo users hang out and help each other.

You don't need a driver for the Tivo AG0100... you plug it into one of the USB ports of a TiVo DVR and configure it from the Settings & Messages -> Settings -> Network -> Change network settings menu in the TiVo DVR.

We have lost the original disc that came with the TIVO and I need to get the Tivo wireless network adaptor set up on our wireless network. How can I do that without the disc, is thee anyway around that ?


The disk us usually not necessary. If you are using a series 2 TiVo you just plug this in to the back of the TiVo and it will recognize it. In the TiVo menu find Network Settings. If you select change network settings it will ask you to select your wireless router and ask for the password to your router if you are using one.

Trying to configure my wireless n adapter from tivo i have connected my adapter to my desktop with the ethernet cable but cannot get the website i was instructed to go to for the setup wizard the sie is...


I hate it when manuals do that, its not always that address.
Ok, (I am assuming you run windows here)
In the start menu, open "run" (or hit windows key + R)
in the run box type "cmd" and hit enter
in the black window that pops up type "ipconfig" and hit enter
now providing you are connected to the router, the address listed as "default gateway" is the one you will need to put into the browser to access its configuration.
