    I just tried Netflix on both of my Minis. For some reason it is scaling the content to 1080P24. In the example short, even when it was at DVD resolution, the Mini was outputting 1080P24.
    Then when I tried to exit out of Netflix, the Mini rebooted. I had the same result with both of my Minis. I'm waiting for them to finish booting to try it again.

    EDIT: well this is weird. I checked the resolution output screen and it does show 1080P24, but ti doesn't say "pass through" like it doe son the Elites. So if 1080P24 is checked, then the Mini will scale to 1080P24 in Netflix. It was not scaling my TV viewing to 1080P24.

    I guess I need to try some Netflix video content to make sure it will output that in 1080i and not 1080P24.

    It appears that it will scale all content from Netflix to 1080p24. The reboot only happens when I exit the app. I haven't been able to make it reboot while playing an actual stream.

    Yes teh same here. It is playing the stream fine but it rebooted when I exited out of Netflix. I've only exited out of Netflix once though with each Mini. RIght now I'm playing back a couple of streams. RIght now I have 1080i and 1080p24 checked for resolution outputs. When in the Netflix menu it is sending 1080i and when I stream a title it is scaling to 1080P24.
    I still need to find some video content to see if it it will scale that to 1080P24, which you would not want.

    EDIT: OK as soon as I tried to exit out of the stream, that was playing this mini rebooted. Let me try to back out with the other Mini.

    EDIT: The second Mini also rebooted.

    i'll uncheck 1080P24 output this time to see if that makes a difference like before.

    Yes. With 1080P24 unchecked neither of my Minis are rebooting.

    So I guess TiVo still needs to get this figured out so 1080P24 output can be enabled.

    Guess I didn't notice since my bedroom plasma is 720p.

    I sent an email to @tivodesign. She responded that they believe they have a fix for this issue and expect to release a minor update in mid-September to address it.

    I'm getting the same error. Connecting and restarting didn't fix it. Maybe a few more days...

    It was working last night for me. I unchecked 1080p24 output and didn't have any more issues.

    I also get this error and I am not sure what needs to be done to correct this?

    Anyone have any ideas to try?

    Same V301 error for me too. Tried a restart, which is about the only thing you can do on a Mini, but it didn't fix it.

    Netflix V301 error on a Mini. Is there common setup we have, such as using MoCA connection to P4 as network bridge? I'm tempted to try hard wired Ethernet.

    I'm MOCA to an Actiontec bridge (attached to my router) and a Roamio Plus.

    I'm guessing that you'll need to contact TiVo. Its probably a back-end server configuration issue.

    I'm getting an odd error now, watching a video, the resolution output is changing back and forth every 2-3 minutes from 1080i to 720p and back again.. Not sure what the best thing to resolve it is,

    Netflix does that based on bandwidth. Th easiest way to avoid it is to set the TiVo to output a single resolution. That way if Netflix does change the resolution the TiVo will simply scale it to that one resolution and your TV wont keep freaking out trying to switch back and forth.
