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.

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.

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.

Convert FIFA World Cup Games TiVo to MPEG for NAS Sharing Starting from June 11...


Convert FIFA World Cup Games TiVo to MPEG for NAS Sharing
fifa-world-cup-tivo-nas.jpg
Starting from June 11 to July 11, there are 64 games for the FIFA World Cup, which is held in South Africa this year. Even though most of us could not go to the 10 stadiums in 9 cities of South Africa, we can stay in front of the HD TV, and watch the favorite teams to goal. We can use the sports collections of TiVo to get the events and web content, and even record with TiVo Premiere.
After recording the first half of the game between Brazil and Democratic People Republic of Korea (DPRK) for the World Cup, I would like to put the first half to my Network Attached Storage (NAS) so as to continue recording the second half. However, the first half does not work on my TV in the bedroom. My friend recommended me to convert TiVo to MPEG for home network devices with Aunsoft Video Converter. I think it is the perfect tool for TiVo videos, as it exports MPEG files within a blink. Thus, I want to share with you my experiences.
I first use TiVo desktop software named TiVoToGo to transfer the TiVo videos to my computer, and run the TiVo to MPEG converter to rip TiVo for my NAS. You can download the TiVo desktop software. To rip the transferred TiVo to MPEG, just follow the steps below.
Step 1. Load TiVo videos to Aunsoft Video Converter.
Click the Add button to load FIFA World Cup TiVo videos. While we have enter the Media Access Key (MAK) for TiVo video when using the TiVoToGo, the program does not ask me for the MAK again from the same TiVo Premiere. However, if the TiVo video is from different TiVo Premiere, the program will pop up a window for you to enter the MAK.
Step 2. Choose directly copy TiVo videos on the program.
Click the "Format" option and find the "Copy" group. There is only one option Directly Copy under the group. Just choose "Directly Copy" and the program will convert World Cup TiVo videos to MPEG fleetly.

Step 3. Convert TiVo to MPEG
Click the convert button under the preview window and the conversion from TiVo to MPEG starts immediately.
Step 4. Transfer MPEG videos to NAS.
Use the wired or wireless network and transfer the output videos to NAS. It is very easy to make the TiVo videos
Tips:
With the directly copy function of the TiVo to MPEG converter, you do not need to change the bit rate and frame rate settings, as the program will use the original settings of the TiVo video. If you want to convert TiVo video to portable devices like iPad, iPhone 4G, iPhone 3G, Zune, you can choose from the format and change the bit rate and resolution for output videos.

TiVo will not connect


The "Almost There" screen can take up to 10 minutes, sometimes.

If you let it sit, does it eventually work?

If not, you may need to call Tivo to have it swapped out, assuming you're still under warranty.

I cannot figure how to set up to cable internet


You need a TIVO wireless adaptor or a USB ethernet adaptor to connect to the internet on some models unless your model have an ethernet adaptor attached to it

From your Tivo go into the setting menu and look for network setup. Tivo will connect to the network and download the schedule.

Once you get that hooked up download Tivo Desktop from Tivo.com. There is a free version of the program. Give the software your IP address on the network for your computer if you know it and see if the software detects it on your network.
