    That's good to know. All my errors are V68 errors. That said, however, it has gotten considerably better since right after the last update. For a while, right after the update, I was having it happen up to a few times per program. Now I have it happen about once every other show I'm streaming.

    Are others having less of a problem with this? BTW, I'm home network wireless/Tivo adapters.

    I have have had trouble streaming with both the old software and the new software,i have 2 tivo premiere XL hooked up by ethernert cable with cisco linksys powerline adapters. in my case wether i transfer a program or just try to watch a program from the bedroom to living room or vice versa,when i pause or fastforward the show the picture and sound stutter real bad making the show unberable to watchj! I called tivo and they suggested i get the tivo N adapters. are any of you guys with mrs problem using the tivo N adapters? or do you think that would help solve the problem? i'm not sure i want to spend another $170.00 fo2 tivo N adapters just to use streaming.

    I mostly think that they just like to sell the Tivo branded adapters. I could be wrong, but that's the vibe I get. BTW, should you decide to try them, they have reconditioned ones for $30 less per. That makes a pretty good difference price-wise. Also, if you are already a customer, they tend to offer you a better deal on the phone.

    When I got my two Premieres I kind of balked at the $90 each for the adapters and then he offered me a BOGOF for them. If that weren't good enough, then he noticed he had the reconditioned ones for $59 so I said I was cool with that. Then I asked if I still got the BOGOF and he said, of course. Oddly, what he did was charge me for one refurb at $59 and then ordered me a NEW one as the free one. So I ended up paying just $59 for the both of them. Haven't had any problem with the one that is a refurb (so far, anyway - it's only been just under 3 months).

    So far the only time I've seen the V68 error was when I was testing the Multi-Room streaming and had three streams going out of an Elite to my other three Premieres and had a stream coming in to the Elite as well from one of the other Premieres. It would work for a while and then the V68 error would pop up and sometimes one or two of the streams would stop and sometimes they would all stop. But as long as I eliminated one of those four streams, and kept it down to three streams, it was fine.

    Same here, just tried MRS for the first time last night and getting the V68 error message after about 1-2 minutes into transferring 2 different programs on 2 different nights. It starts sounding like a skipping record every couple of seconds then the v68 message pops up. I hope fix is coming soon because this sucks.

    Still having the problem off and on. I'm pretty sure it's not my network, rather Tivo's problem. The error message gives a URL to go to on the Tivo site, that doesn't even exist.

    Hopefully they are making some headway with this.

    Tweeted with Tivo Margret this morning. A software update is coming this week to address this issue. If you want priority updating of your box - submit your TSN here:

    http://www.tivo.com/mytivo/software-priority-request/

    You should get the update within 3 days. Make sure both your Tivos have the update before testing MRS.

    Again, no where has anyone from Tivo posted that the update will be available in 3 days. You should read the entire message you get upon submitting your TSN. It says you will receive the update within 3 days of it becoming available.

    I went ahead to register mine for the latest. Oddly, the first one took and the second one said I was already registered. No worries. I hope it's the fixer-upper. :)

    Fortunately, the last few days I've had flawless MRS viewing. (whispering - yay)

    My mom always said "it's not what you say, it's how you say it". No need to be condescending. You are correct, and I didn't read it carefully enough, but you sound as if you're tired of correcting people or rolling your eyes.

    Relax.....take a breath.....and sometimes saying it just a little nicer is better....
