    i have severe internet issues which are unresolved. everytime dsl goes down the tivo locks up. is this normal behavior? takes about 2 or 3 minutes for it to unlock then it's fun to watch it 'catch up' with all the button presses:eek:

    Well, normal implies that is the way its supposed to work. I'm sure tivo did not have that as a feature on their requirements docs, but its not an unheard of situation.

    If you use SDUI instead you won't get any lockups due to internet related issues.

    ive been doign this for 2 months now...definitely a huge difference. i just wish there was a space bar somewhere on the screen, have to turn back sometimes to see how much space is left and could take a few min until it turns back

    No it isn't normal. When I release my IP on my router, my TiVos only come up with a message saying the connection is lost. The don't lock up on me. I can still use it fine to access my shows, the guide, and Season passes.
