    How was that "determined" :rolleyes:? From this TiVo.com support page:
    (Emphasis added). I've been told by a friend who works at TiVo on Opera SDK-based apps that they dumped Adobe AIR because Adobe stopped developing it shortly after TiVo adopted it for Premiere.

    Someone around here saw a config file that showed the YouTube app to use HTML5 terminology (I don't remember the exact technical verbiage: "app engine" or "container object" maybe) while the Netflix app was still showing up as Flash.

    This review from The Verge (though it depends on how you interpret it) seems to indicate only YouTube is HTML5 right now. http://www.theverge.com/2013/8/20/4638390/tivo-roamio-pro-review

    But if TiVo's support page indicates HTML5...

    From that article:

    Netflix's latest platform is most definitely HTML5 for Webkit. It now has all of the features of the other HTML5 Netflix players that the old Flash one never got: scroll-by-three with FF and REW, People Search and Netflix Kids. Its debug info is multi-page like the PS3's (UP UP DOWN DOWN LEFT RIGHT LEFT RIGHT UP UP UP UP, an homage to the ancient "Konami cheat code") and the version information displayed there is similar to that displayed on other devices. They popped that banner content ad and profiles in and out without any sort of discernible update operation.

    Well, as of this very moment Netflix has not caused its daily reboot. I've been subjecting it to some serious mega viewing to see if it will. I still do not have profiles or banner ads. The Netflix and Kids choices still greet me when tune in so there's that. I didn't get any Tivo updates other than standard service connections. They DID fix a wacky guide glitch that had AMCHD and AMCHDP both occupying the same space at the same time.

    As long as Netflix doesn't reboot regularly (especially while recording multiple shows) I can live with the lack of profiles until they can sort it all out. Fortunately it's locked on MY profile so the wife and kiddies have to use one of the other platforms we own to access their shows. This could be a good thing :D "Sorry honey, we just can't watch (insert syrupy romance show here) right now...how bout "Expendables 2".....again?

    On other devices that disappears after you choose the same one several times in a row; if you want the other one you can always get it after the player starts.

    Sometimes after the app updates you will get the prompt for a few days as well. But it does figure it out eventually like you said.

    It has now stopped asking me whether I want Netflix Kids.

    We were just discussing it in the past few posts. It's usually more than a couple of times; I'd estimate that it was at least 5, but it always stops after a while.

    Mine asks if I want Netflix for kids, but it doesn't ask what profile, and it is locked on my son's profile, and I don't know how to get to mine. :|

    Try going to netflix.com and choosing your profile there.

    For now it will always use the main profile. For some reason we got access to the profile enabled version but for only a few days before it was pulled. Considering it seemed to work well, I would imagine we will see it back before too long.

    I second what others have said. When profile support was rolled out I selected a secondary profile to try it out. When profile support disappeared I remained stuck on that profile and have no way to switch back to the main. As such all of our queue and viewing history, which is on the main profile, is unavailable to us. Hopefully they'll get full profile support rolled back out soon, or at least allow switching in some way.

    Can you log out of the app and then log back in again on your TiVo?

    You're talking about going to the debug menu (UP UP DOWN DOWN LEFT RIGHT LEFT RIGHT UP UP UP UP) and selecting "Sign out" then running the app and signing into your account again?

    Yes. I'm thinking that might reset what profile is being used to be the main profile for the account.

    I deactivated the app in the TiVo menu, and logged in again and it went to my main profile.

    Deactivating in the TiVo "Account and System Information" menu is no doubt exactly the same operation as logging off in the Netflix app's debug menu. Use of that debug menu in other devices is the only way to deactivate that specific device; the option in TiVo's A&SI menu is unique.
