    N33 here also in Wisconsin; glad to hear it's not on my end.

    Thankfully this is already result #3 on Google for "tivo N33 error", so expect this to be a highly-trafficed thread tonight.

    Uh oh...Someone accidentally ran windows update on production servers during primetime. Next time click postpone rather than reboot. ;)

    It happened to my premiere elite at 7:30 central time. Nothing seems to get it to work properly. I have rebooted the TiVo, reset the router and even checked with the cable company for any Internet issues. It has to be TiVo servers. The TiVo is kinda useless until this is fixed

    Thank goodness for TiVo Community.

    Imagine how I felt, having just gone through guided setup on a brand new Priemere Elite and Cablecard pairing without a hitch, only to get to the pretty new HD menu with an N33 Error.

    When I select a program from My Shows, before I hit play, I hear the TiVo bonk, the screen goes black for about a minute, then comes back to the main TiVo menu.

    Time to go to sleep, let this puppy continue indexing, then force a connection or two in the AM.

    My Premieres are back up and working as of 11:50 PM.
    So I guess they finished the update.

    Both of my Premieres are up and running again and no N33 message. The one just needed a force connect. The other I did the force connect and it still wouldn't get rid of the N33 message until I forced a restart on it. Now both Premieres are without the N33. If you still have the N33 message try the force connect first if that doesn't work might have to force the tivo into a restart. To force a restart you need to go to settings & messages, then Help, then Restart or Reset System, then select Restart the Tivo Box.

    You shouldn't need to force a reconnect. Worst case scenario, just pull the ethernet and re-set it. All of mine came back automatically without any connections.

    When others were coming back up I actually did pull both wireless adapters and reconnected them. That didn't work, I still had the N33 on both. So I forced both to reconnect the one came back fine the N33 disappeared the other still had the N33 error I ended up restarting the one completed and now both have no N33 error. Just stating if anyone has the issue I did you might have to force a reconnect and worst case scenario even force a restart.

    I would hope they have a high-availability configuration :)

    Since I use SDUI I never even noticed the outage. This kind of event clearly points out the giant flaw that is the HDUI.

    I got the same error abt 9:30MST, first time seeing N33. I followed the instructions Tivo has posted for network error messages. They didn't solve the problem but did change the error message to another new one, N30. It finally resolved itself abt an hour or so later.

    I got the latest update, 20.2, on my Premiere abt 2 weeks ago. I've already had 3 freezes, have seen the return of old annoying software bugs and now the new error messages. I'd like the choice to NOT upgrade. I was finally enjoying my Premiere box as it was...I've had a lot of problems with it the past ~17 months. :thumbsdown: :thumbsdown: :thumbsdown:

    I never had any issues and I use the HDUI. Obviously the bar at the top showed the message and networking apps were disabled. But my recordings played fine. I'm not sure why others had different results.

    Ditto. And new programs recorded as expected. What was surprising is that a Netflix stream-in-progress died. I expected that once a stream was started it would just be a conversation between my device and Netflix. I wonder if that's an intended or unintended side effect.

    If you try and push into program details in HDUI there is a pretty long delay normally when network is working (a few seconds), and when network is not working it's several more seconds. It used to be prior to 20.2 you couldn't get into program details at all without a working network and for those that don't know to press "Play" from My Shows they were stuck not being able to start playback of a show at all.
    EDIT: Plus I believe search doesn't work properly in HDUI when networking is down since it relies on network data rather than local guide data for some operations.

    Seriously?

    I had -zero- problems. I was aware of the N33 error, but only because of this forum. My shows recorded without a hitch, and I was able to watch any show I had recorded without a hitch.

    Useless?

    [Yes, I am aware certain functions did not operate, and this is not to downplay the fact that a situation like this really shouldn't occur. But to state that your TiVo is useless?]

    I was going to say something very similar. I don't care if the discovery bar disappears (I wish it would go away forever), but preventing people from using Netflix, Android/iOS app, streaming, etc, is just not acceptable.

    I was in the HDUI at the time. Thankfully, it did not interfere with local playback or recording... so at least the base functionality of a DVR was still intact.

    Can anyone else confirm this? If so, I need to add it as a positive in the changelog...
