    I agree, but he said he has tried troubleshooting his network and hasn't been able to resolve the issue.

    Although we have only being using Netflix briefly since we are mostly HuluPlus users I can understand the frustration of it locking up and spitting out to the main screen when it wanted to. So this refresh is sweet. Just have to remind my kids.. Hey kids only click on the right that says "KIDS" and will be just fine..

    I know this isn't what you want to hear, but the new update has improved my transferring of shows between my two S4 boxes. I would frequently lose connectivity between them. A few days before the update, I couldn't even browse the Now Playing list on the remote box. This happened from both S4 boxes. I could also connect to the TiVo service with no problems when the connection error, between boxes, happened.

    I haven't had an error since the update. Maybe the "fix" broke something on your setup.

    I think I only see this when streaming from another TiVo.

    It happens if you delete the show or not.

    I wonder if this could be the result of TiVo trying to load an ad and failing. Thoughts?

    The Netflix causes my Roamio to reboot after about an hour of watching it.

    Cox Cable...
    It sure did on mine. It gave me the problem it was supposed to fix with channels not tuning, which I did not have before. I was afraid exactly that would happen.

    Are you sure you don't just have a bad tuning adapter. You mentioned in another thread that your cable company just started moving channels over to SDV. Maybe the channels you actually watch just happened to be moved around the time of the software update and you're only just noticing the problem.

    Could also be a network related issue. I noticed something really weird the other night. My internet connection was down. While it was down I was surfing through the channels, one by one, just to check out all the new HD channels I get. Some of the channels would cause my TiVo to "lock up" and not respond to the remote for a good 10-15 seconds. The channels would still play, but I could not get the Roamio to respond to the remote for at least 10-15 seconds every time I tuned one of these channels. This was repeatable on these specific channels if I tuned away and then came back. (about 10 I saw) As soon as I got the internet working again (turned out to be a router problem) I tried these channels again and they all worked fine and did not lock up the TiVo. So it seems that having a live internet connect can somehow effect certain channels. During this time I tried disconnecting the TA and none of the suspect channels were SDV, so I'm not sure why not having an internet connection had any effect.

    Cox Cable...
    Unless I have 6 bad TAs (I had 6 in use on Premiere 2-tuner models, now only need three), that's not it. Same situation with cablecards. I have three extra ones of those as well now, which makes swapping cablecards and TAs as easy as it can be (meaning as easy as getting a good Cox rep on the phone).

    I'm also having major issues with H.264 channels that operate in the mid to high 900Mhz range, which were rock solid before the update. Now it is nearly always impossible to get them to work.

    Also, Cox has halted, for now, changing channels to SDV and reassigning frequencies. They stopped ~1 month ago. It was only a rough ride in the beginning, when they'd change frequencies, but fail to re-map the cablecards/TAs to tune to the new ones. that's old-news now.

    I didn't even have any Roamios when Cox was changing things around. I made sure not to post anything about issues, that could even remotely be related.

    Since a buyer of one of my Premieres has paid, but let me defer shipping for a while, I keep that one operable, to offload my content, also giving me a chance to compare platforms for a while.

    This update borked both platforms, introducing the very issues that it was supposed to resolve, plus adding issues to H.264 channels, which have worked fine before, during, and after Cox's SDV mapping and related changes.

    My internet is all hard-wired, and has been more reliable than it has been in years. I don't have to reboot the CM and/or router, on a schedule, like I used to. I have tried doing so, and rebooting everything, as well as power-cycling all networking switches, etc.

    Thanks for the input, but it just seems N/A. It's still appreciated, though.

    I didn't watch long enough to see if that happens on mine. I'll have to test it.

    New Netflix is nice with 1080p24. It fixes the output to 1080p24 then adjust the quality without changing it.

    I have discovered an issue that has appeared a couple of times since the update. If you are watching a recorded program and get out of it before it is finished, in my case about 1/2 through, it doesn't save the place you were at. It doesn't show "Resume" you have to select "Play" and fast forward to where you left off. This has happened twice so far. Once when I tried to resume a program on the same Tivo I originally was using and another time when I tried (different program) to continue a recorded show from my Mini. Not sure if this has been mentioned yet..

    We only have a premiere XL with no Stream or NAS drive attached. Perhaps because we are not using extra add-ins to the port the software is reacting differently. Are you playing from Groups of videos or one individual.

    My daughter has been playing a Group of Team Umizoomi videos 1 of 7 and the group player is fine. I ran a video this morning that I started watching last night and it continued where it was. Have you tried to reboot since the update perhaps a hiccup in the system?

    This has been mentioned before, so either it was never fixed, or the recent update broke it again.
    Try to remember to hit the pause button before you back out of the program. That seems to force the Tivo into applying the resume bookmark.

    Our Premiere 4 that got 20.3.8 has been having issues holding onto channels since the update. Things that were rock-solid before no longer are. I *believe* it's isolated to SDV channels. I've rebooted our TA on that TiVo twice, and each time it connects up and things are fine for a bit but then degrade later. I'm getting 37db on all tuners and signal readings in the low to mid 90s.

    Thanks for taking the time to post this, and letting me know I'm not alone in having something that worked rock-solid pre-update, and now doesn't post-update.
