TiVo Roamio DVR

I have the TiVo Roamio DVR Model: TCD846500. I called twc to get the sports package with nba tv and nfl network. The said it wouldn't work with TiVo and I needed to get there box. Talking to TiVo they said it should work with no issue. What could be the issue? Thanks

Do you have a tuning adapter and cablecard?

NFLNetwork doesn't come in on the DTAs.

So there is no way to get the sports package to work.

OK, without the tuning adapter it can't request any programming it is a cable modem that goes in the incoming cable line and connects to the usb port. You're missing some to a lot of channels

Yes with Tuning adapter sports package will work, the only things that do NOT work with TWC and Tivo, are Look Back, Start Over, Any On Demand, Pay-Per-View.

Thanks for the confirmation, The call center blows it again....  May also need a different cablecard "married " to the TA...It shouldn't matter but, twc does a lot that makes little sense.

 

It's a shame Tivo's and Cetons don't have  internal modems to act as a TA.

Or that the internet connection can't act as a TA (that's TWC's doing as they shoved the OOB up/ downstream on different rf channels and server than the cable modem CMTS
