    If you are seeing C133 errors on a regular basis, then you have problems with your network hardware (which might include network hardware within the TiVo, but probably not since those problems are easy to see). I'm not sure why you blame TiVo for not debugging your network.

    Perhaps it would be better if you went with some other solution besides Tivo...

    Tivo is a great solution. You just have to find the fixes and all will work well after that!

    I'm getting blue spinning circles on my TiVos currently and the iOS app is complaining of network errors (tried Wifi and LTE).

    Tivo's status page says everything is up and running, but that doesn't appear to be the case.

    Edit: The Tivos seem to be working now, still getting blue circles, but they go away in about 5 seconds. iOS app still fails to log in though.

    Edit 2: and the box won't load program info now so, for example, selecting an item in the To Do list shows a spinning blue circle and goes back to the To Do list.

    Also seeing the spinning blue circles on my Roamio and Premeire. As mentioned earlier in this thread, they clear after about 5 seconds.

    Same issues here. Syracuse, NY, Roamio Pro on Fios. Blue circles and app trouble...

    I also sometimes get at C501 when using the what to watch now feature tonight.

    Seems to be working intermittently, so I agree it's server problems, which makes me wonder why http://status.tivo.com is showing everything is operational.

    Yeah that's weird. The app keeps telling me I have incorrect user name or password, but I know they're right. Oddly, I can sign into my account at tivo.com no problem.

    Seeing the blue circles as well, and kmttg is not functioning properly either although I'm unsure if it's related.

    That's exactly what's happening to me! Apps on my two tablets are behaving the same! I hope all my scheduled recordings will be OK.... This is the start of the new season!!!

    Made it through to TiVo phone support and they told me one of their servers decided to run an update about an hour ago instead of earlier in the day like they normall do. That is slowing things down so anyone on that server will experience intermittent issues as the box is slow to respond.

    He also told me he doesn't know why they bother having a status.tivo.com site since it's rarely accurate.

    Anyway, I managed to log in to the Tivo app, though it took a lot of tries. I'm assuming that whenever their servers finish doing whatever it is they are doing, things will return to normal.

    Same for me in Michigan. I have both the iOS and Android TiVo apps, and I am intermittently able to connect with my two TiVo boxes, but each time I do, eventually I get the "box not responding" message and then the "invalid password" notice.

    Existing season passes and recordings should be fine. If you are trying to schedule one now though, you'll likely run into issues.

    Trying to set up SP for the new shows on AntennaTV that start tomorrow :)

    When I tried to connect to do an update it gave me a "unexplained error" as to why it failed. Now I know :)

    Recently, like others, I've gotten blue circles when trying to access a show's info page (and subsequently playing it). When that happened I just hit the Play button from My Shows to skip the page entirely.

    Tonight I can't play my recordings at all. Even hitting Play from My Shows causes blue circles for a while, then times out. Nothing happens.

    Yay. This perpetual cloud integration works swimmingly. :thumbsdown:

    Just completed watching a show and chose to delete, now I'm stuck staring at a black screen.... I think I'm going to disconnect my box from the internet, which hopefully will have less issues than this....
