    It's back again. Seems like this is becoming a weekly event now where most of the functions of the TiVo get disabled. What exactly are we paying for if the service is broken this much. Seems that someone made a major architectural mistake with this new software and didn't have the infrastructure ready to support it.

    I was an original TiVo owner back in 1999 but went away along they way due to DirecTV. I just came back to TiVo with the Roamio but this is not encouraging when seemingly once a week, many of the functions of the box are unavailable. But I still have to pay for services that are not working.

    Such a PIA!
    It has a problem with the service when I want something, but has no problem putting up ads when I pause something.

    Seems to be working OK for me. I even did a search. Although it did seem a bit slow.

    I wonder if this is an east coast only problem?

    I'm in NY area getting error. Also Netflix doesnt work. Would that be affected by the TiVo service outage?

    It's down for me as well in NJ. The C133 error goes away and the menus re-enable periodically, but trying to use any feature causes the C133 error come back. That or I get a C501 error.

    Montgomery, Al is having the problem also. I did a system reboot before checking other Tivo's.

    I'm having a fruitless chat conversion with TiVo support and while they acknowledge the problem, I'm being told we should expect it to last a few more hours tonight.

    I'm also being told that there is no commitment on when a software update intended to fix the problem will be released.

    Really starting to regret my decision to re-invest in the TiVo platform

    Oh boy, here we go again. Out in Miami, Florida as well. I called customer service and they said that they were seeing at high amount of calls with the C133 message. This is been such a big problem over the past two months and I figure I give them a call. Hopefully the squeaky wheel gets the oil. Maybe if the reps spend most of their time with customers trying to resolve this problem they might eventually get it fixed.
