    From the modem (or router/modem combo if you have one). The Netflix app is very susceptible to fluctuations in the internet.

    Yes, and all 3 seasons are available on Netflix via streaming and/or discs.

    I started watching season 3 on TV and it was awesome. So now going back to watch 1st 2 seasons via Netflix. I did hear season 2 was not as good but season 3 returned to greatness. BTW the quality of the streams on Netflix are better than AMCHD channel delivered by Cox here, so I actually prefer watching via Netflix, especially as well since there are no commercials to skip.

    Season 2 was actually like a second half of S1. The show is patterned after Forbrydelsen, a Danish crime drama which ran 3 series over about 5 years. Forbrydelsen's first series ran in two 10 episode segments airing about 6 months apart. The Danish series ran 3 separate storyline in the 3 Series while the US version was only 2 stories over 3 seasons.

    AMC can have a very wide variation of their picture quality, The Walking Dead can look like a VHS tape at times while Hell On Wheels had some of the very best PQ I've ever seen on TV. The shooting of The Killing in Vancouver as subbing for Seattle didn't help much either with all that overcast and rain.

    It is the opinion of many, including me, that the Danish series far surpasses the US version in quality of writing and acting. Hopefully Netflix will get the streaming rights to Forbrydelsen some day. With a DNS redirection service such UnBlock Us you can access the Scandanavian Netflix sites to view content not available in the US. I'm not positive that Forbrydelsen is there as I've never looked but I'd be surprised if it wasn't.

    Dumb question. Is there a way to drop back to the TiVo menu when done with a movie? Pressing the TiVo button takes me all the way back to the TiVo menu.

    I think the button labeled "Back" will do this. The Up arrow key works too... that's what I usually use I think.

    You seem to have asked and answered the question. The TiVo button takes you back to the main menu like it would any other time. The List button (or TiVo TiVo) will take you to the My Shows dialog. The Live TV button will take you to Live TV. The new Back button will back out to wherever you entered Netflix from (I believe--I've never bothered setting up the new remote since I use a Harmony One; if there's an IR code for Back it's not in the Harmony device definitions).

    From what context? From streaming video playback UP gets you back to where you started (the title's menu or the browser). From the title's menu it does nothing. From the the browser it moves up and down through the list of genres; UP from My List is the "Search" and "Netflix Kids" buttons, UP from there is the last Genre in the list--it's a circular scroll.

    More options:
    Left will return you to whatever you were last doing. So if you are watching a recording, left will take you back to the menu but already drilled down to the show you are watching. This works for any menu location, not just shows.

    If you exited an app, left will start it up again.

    Right is another way to see info. Left hides it again.

    It sounded like he was looking for a way to avoid getting dumped all the way back out to TiVo Central when streaming Netflix titles. Up may not take him back out to the Netflix artwork tile list in one step but its much quicker than his current method.

    The up arrow was what I was looking for! Thank you.

    Are profiles supposed to be working now? Any settings for this, because my Netflix account has two profiles but I am not getting prompted for them when I start Netflix on my Roamio.

    They enabled profile support for only a few days before they pulled it. Apparently it was not quite ready. I hope it comes back soon as it was quite useful.

    Ah, that explains it. I was wondering why I had seen people referring to it and not seen it working for myself.

    Tivo is currently working with Netflix to come up with a fix for random rebooting issues experienced by a not insignificant amount of subscribers. An earlier fix for rebooting issues resolved issues for many but created new ones for others. Hopefully this fix will also restore profiles. The plan is to issue an update this month.

    On another note, my son got a Netflix update today on his PS3 and it toasted any ability to use Netflix at all. He had to head off to work before we could sort it out but will jump when he gets back.

    Ah, technology....how it makes life some much less complicated:rolleyes:

    How are you guys getting LEFT and UP to do these thing? They don't for me and shouldn't. As I stated, from the browser UP scrolls circularly through the genre rows and LEFT scrolls circularly through the titles in the currently selected row. From stream playback LEFT pauses and lets your skip back by poster thumbs, about 15 seconds apart in the title that I tried. In the title's menu it backs out into the browser grid.

    While streaming a show.

    *Just* Up. Not Left then Up. If you are very close to the end of the show (time-wise) I think Up will take you to the Play Next/Back to Browse window though.

    I think that I just misunderstood and the guy was trying to get back to the Netflix browser, in which case UP is what you hit.

    I found one "problem" with the Netflix player. If you use a "VPN" sort of service to access Netflix libraries in other geographical areas (Brazil, Mexico, UK, Ireland, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Denmark), TiVo's Netflix will not work, at least not with UnblockUS. The other devices that I own with Netflix players all work with this (Roku 2 XS, Roku 3, 2 Panasonic BDPs, 1 Sony BDP, PS3, Xbox 360 and this PC--I can't remember whether my Premiere did, but I think so). The problem is that it uses the router as primary DNS address, which is cool, but it then uses one of my provider's DNS servers as secondary DNS, which won't work. It populates the browser with the right titles (and no My List) and you can search and find stuff not in the US catalog but it can't play anything, dying a few seconds into loading.

    Of course, doing this is not entirely kosher so it can't really be considered a bug :D.
