    Well, the wait is finally over, Netflix showed up on my Mini Saturday afternoon, I love it! The Netflix for kids is a great addition, I know this feature isn't exactly new, but new to Tivo owners.

    The app launches fast ,and is much more usable than on the Premiere, now I cant wait until my Roamio gets here, good bye premiere units!

    Try it with 1080P24 output? It will reboot when exiting Netflix. Although TiVo is supposed to have an update to fix it shortly.

    I have read some people are experiencing issues with that setting, I haven't tested it myself, I will attempt this evening and report back.

    Finally, and it's FAST too... much better experience than on the P4XL, or the Samsung TV they are connected too.

    Anyone else getting the V301 error on the Mini for Netflix? Any ideas on how to fix this?

    I noticed if you press the info button while playing a Netflix title, you will get the bitrate info on the upper left. Plus it shows you when it's playing a SuperHD stream or a regular 1080P stream there also.

    A reboot usually fixes the 301 error

    Renewing DHCP or Thumbs Down, Thumbs Up, Play, Play to reset the HDUI can also fix the problem which can be less drastic alternatives.

    Netflix is now working on my Mini following a V301 error. Not sure if Tivo fixed this or it was something I did. In addition to a reset (which did not seem to help), I reset all devices at netflix.com and connected to the Tivo service from the Mini.

    I've had no issues with Netflix the last couple of nights on my Minis. Of course 1080p24 output wasn't checked either.

    For most people there is no advantage because their TV is just going to convert to 60fps. Some 120Hz or 240Hz TVs can display 1080p24 natively and there may then be some advantage.

    Movies are shot at 24fps. The conversion to 60fps is not exact and can cause some stuttering. It's usually most noticeable in long panning shots. If you have a TV capable of displaying 24fps then it doesn't need the conversion and you'll see the movie exactly as the director intended.

    1080p24 is the only 1080P option for the TiVo Mini. There is no 1080P60 option like you have with the vast majority of other devices.
