    Tried to watch a Netflix movie last night for the first time since the 20.2 update. The App crashed twice and on the third crash caused the tivo premier to reboot. Nice little 5 minute intermission. Is this the new norm, watch till it crashes; restart; watch; restart; watch; reboot; take a break. Oh almost forgot, finish movie.

    Interesting. I had the same thing happen the day after I got 20.2. Since then I have watched about a dozen Netflix shows and it has been stable never missing a beat.

    We haven't had any issues with Netflix since the upgrade. We use it quite a bit playing shows that my grandson likes. :)

    That happened to me a couple nights ago. I was watching a NetFlix stream and then the TiVo rebooted.

    I wonder if I put the Roku in the garage too soon...

    Netflix has been rock solid for me since the update. Only flakiness I had was with my usb wireless connection, which I just hardwired. Now, I always get full HD, every time, where prior I would get it about 60% of the time.

    Same here. Rock solid before 20.2 and now it has crashed twice in a month when streaming

    I think it has a lot to do with what you are watching. I've come across certain content that will cause a crash/reboot every time while other content plays just fine. Right now I cant watch any episode of Rescue Me season 5 without getting a crash/reboot within 10 minutes but other stuff plays just fine.

    Content should not be able to cause a crash/reboot, of course. Please tell TiVo all about it, including details of exactly which show and how far in.

    Similar things happen to my Dad, streaming through his Sony DVD player. Certain episodes of a TV show he watches have sound but no video.

    I thought about this last night, and I could be way off base.

    Wondering if hte netflxi crash has anything to do with upconverting the signal to 1080P 24P. I have that on my settings.

    Just throwing it out there, could be wrong but crazier things can happen.

    For me, I have it set to 1080P 24. I'll set it down to 1080i and see if it becomes stables.

    Why would that cause an issue? All my content is scaled to 1080P60. Whether I scale it to 1080P60, 1080P24, 720P60, or even 480P60, it should not make a difference.

    Since you say you are scaling it to 1080P24 I assume you are talking about an external scaler since the TiVo cannot scale anything to 1080P24, it only has pass-thru 1080P24 capability.

    Again just throwing it out there. Could be totally off base.

    It seems unlikely, but try it for a while and see if it makes a difference. I don't think you'll suffer too much from having to watch 1080i.
