    If they ever get 1080P24 output working on the Mini then you can just check that along with the other outputs and the Mini will scale the netflix streams to 1080P24 avoiding any blanking screens from resolution changes.

    So... I contacted Tivo Support (live chat) about the V301 error launching Netflix.

    Their response:

    Kevin Martin: My tivo mini just got an update and announced Netflix was added. I always get a V301 error... contact Customer Support

    Janee: I apologize for the confusion - we're not officially supporting Netflix on the Mini at this time. There is a good chance the Netflix icon will no longer be available within the next 24 hours. It is coming soon, but hasn't been launched officially yet.

    Kevin Martin: That doesn't make any sense. The message popped up on the screen today saying my software had updated, and Netflix was now available.

    Kevin Martin: Several people on TivoCommunity say it is working for them.

    Janee: I can certainly check and see if there is anything we can do to help you get it working now, but we have no officially released Netflix support for the Mini.

    Janee: It will be just a moment while I take a look and see what we can do to help!

    Kevin Martin: I would appreciate the help. Thanks!

    So they had no idea a message was sent saying that Netflix is now available?

    Nope:

    Janee: Okay, thank you for your patience! So, what I've gathered is we are indeed updating software on the TiVo Mini boxes, which is intended to begin the process of enabling Netflix for the Mini boxes - at this time, Netflix is not entirely stable and we'll be officially launching the Netflix support on the Mini boxes within the next week, via a patch the Mini will download for you.

    Janee: As it stands, I can try to help you get it working - but there is a chance that we'll need to wait for that update before you can properly use Netflix.

    Kevin Martin: You sure know how to confuse your customers with those on screen messages!

    Kevin Martin: I'd be willing to try to get it working if you are.

    Is the Mini connecting via MoCa or Ethernet? What about the Premiere? Maybe the Premiere has a better internet connection? Or maybe the Premiere is already set to only output one resolution>

    the mini is using MoCa, and both access the same network AP..but the TV screen refresh from the mini, only when running the netflix app from the mini is what is odd..

    I don't know. The TV I have my Mini connected to is only 720p so I have it set to always output 720p. I've only seen the flashing on my Elite which is connected to a nicer TV and where I have all the resolution options selected.

    Is anyone currently having the Netflix V301 problem?

    I set up a TiVo Mini a couple of weeks ago, and initially Netflix worked fine. I have it connected to my router via MoCA using the Actiontec bridge. I also have a P4 on the network (Wireless-N adapter) that has no problems accessing Netflix.

    It started happening on Saturday the 19th. Could it have been due to this update?

    Thanks,

    Not only is it working fine, but it looks like Netflix user profiles are now on Tivo

    Netflix on the mini works about a million times better in terms of speed & responsiveness than it does on our Premiere4.

    This may be answered somewhere on the web site and I've just overlooked it. I'm curious about the Tivo mini's ability to stream Netflix content. I know when I setup Netflix on my main Tivo unit, that takes up one of the five devices I'm allowed from my Netflix account. If I set it up on my mini, does it stream through the main unit and therefore not take up another device slot, or does the mini count as another of my five allowed devices? Just curious.

    Thanks to anyone that may be able to answer.

    What plan do you have that currently has 5 allowed devices? Netflix dropped signup device limits on my plan years ago in favor of limits on the number of devices that can simultaneously stream. I've probably signed up 20 devices over the past few years.

    I guess I must not have been paying attention to the changes and missed that change. That's good news. It looks like I won't need to worry about it. I humbly retract my question.

    Thanks for the info!
