    I'm running wireless. If it is indeed a network blip that causes the reboot that's a pretty big bug. Kick me out of Netflix and tell me there was a network error. And I'm ok with that. Don't reboot the whole machine.

    I'm running with wired Ethernet so a network blip is less likely. But I agree, if a network blip can cause a reboot, that is a very serious bug and should never happen.

    I am wired also and I was talking about a blip from outside your home (including the C133 error), something you may have never noticed using most internet apps.

    It still should not cause a system reboot.

    Nobody would or should disagree with that statement

    Careful, someone might interpret that as a challenge. :D

    I had another Netflix reboot on my Roamio last night. It seems that every time I exit the Netflix app by pressing the live TV button (or maybe it's the Tivo button), I get a reboot.

    Also, the sound was really terrible watching a show on Netflix. That same show on Netflix through my Apple TV sounded fine.

    Netflix rebooted my TiVo last night. I have not had the TiVo reboot due to Netflix before that. My internet connection was intermittent yesterday so that goes along with the theory that Netflix crashes when the internet connection has a problem.

    THIS! Thank you for posting this. I can't believe they removed such a basic piece of functionality.

    Our family used Netflix so much this month since getting new Netflix that I actually got a warning email from Cox saying our data limit (250GB/month) has been greatly exceeded (275GB so far). 1st time we've been over that much. I'm hoping this is not a common concurrence requiring next Internet tier. 250 GB limit is pretty ridiculously low IMO, and next tier up which is $12/month more is still only a 300GB max limit.

    Just last night I had to re-sign into Netflix on my Roamio +, the first time sign is needed, and when TiVo/Netflix changes the interface maybe a new sign in is needed, but nothing happened Sunday that I would think needed another full sign in, nobody beside myself uses the Roamio I am referring to, do other have to re-sign in at random times also ?? (this has been the 3rd random sign in on this Roamio I have had in the last 3 months) OR does Netflix have a once a month sign-in policy per unit ??

    I also had to sign in again yesterday on my Roamio.

    Quite annoying is sit down all ready to watch a movie and have to go grab phone to lookup password and enter it.

    OK so TiVo/Netflix is not just picking on me, does anyone know why the repeating sign in, is it a Netflix requirement or a hardware/software bug ?? I have never had to repeat a Netflix sign in on my PC, and it has been years. (Same PC)

    I'd have to imagine it's a Tivo thing/bug. I never have to re-sign into Netflix on my ATV.

    A hardware bug? TiVo uses off the shelf hardware (Pace makes the boxes for TiVo) so let's just rule this one out. If you google "netflix not retaining login information" you will see every platform mentioned so this is not a TiVo bug.

    When a major update to the Netflix client is installed you sometimes have to re-enter login information again. I've had to do that on my PS3 and Roku many times over the years. I've had HBOGo do the same.

    Thus is where the slide remote comes in handy. With it you can quickly enter login info.

    My problem is remembering the random password generated for my Netflix....so I always have to grab my iPhone/iPad to look that up first.

    Sign in over the years, that would no be any problem, I am talking about a sign in every month or two, last Sunday (for example) I don't think any Netflix/TiVo upgrade was installed, so why did I have to re-sign in ?

    I finally got the new Netflix player on Premiere today. It's interesting that profiles work for it but not on Roamio.

    Your first update to Netflix a couple of months ago was to the HTML5 Netflix client and the recent update was to the all new native client Netflix. Previously Netflix hadn't been updated on TiVo in over a year.

    Just today both Netflix & HBOGo on my Samsung TV prompted me for login info.

    I've also noticed if I haven't logged in on a certain platform in awhile it will prompt you. I guess in case you were over someone's house and logged in with your credentials that they don't get a free ride forever.
