    Hey, what do you know? That did the trick. I think. It now works like a charm!

    (I didn't try Rhapsody before rebooting last night, so it may have been fixed before the reboot, but I guess I'll never know.)

    Thanks!

    I subscribed with Bestbuy when I got my Sansa R about 2 weeks ago and was able to log in on the TiVo with no issues.

    I might be since it was a new account vs someone who has had a subscription to the bestbuy rhapsody for a while.

    Device trials are always tied directly to the device that they're on. I know that it doesn't give you the full Rhapsody "Your music everywhere!" experience, but it was a business decision. So basically, you're not going to be able to do this. Sorry.

    I tried Rhapsody for the first time last night, and I'm pretty impressed. The UI was slow, and sometimes locked up; but on the positive side, it never missed a note, even when the UI seemed dead.

    I have a Series 2 DT and tried demo for the first time last night. Irritating, as I really like the streaming stations, and live 365 sound quality is poor and galleon streaming is buggy - but this was a nightmare. It worked for a bit, but if I navigated around, it would hang at "loading..." then kick me out to menu. I'd find at that time that my (wired) net connection was down, no online apps were active, and only a reboot would cure the problem. The tivo would fail to find the gateway til a reboot. Anybody have any ideas, or is this just the way it works (or doesn't)?

    >>I'd suggest rebooting the DVR, that may clear things up for you. Let us know.

    Solved my problem of track not loading. Thanks.

    The more I use the Rhapsody/Tivo interface, the more I like it. I'm looking forward to more of the bugs being fixed and some fine tuning of the interface.

    I have 9.2j - and was wanting to check out the service.

    I followed this ..

    1. Select the Music, Photos, Products, & More menu from TiVo Central
    2. Click on Rhapsody Music Service
    3. Accept the 30-day free trial

    can't get past step #2 it's not on the list. YES the APPs are enabled. I have a bunch of OTHER services Yahoo, Live 365 , movie Tickets, etc... no Rhapsody.

    what am I missing?

    You need to sign up on the Priority page to get the app sooner. The app is being rolled out to everyone over a number of weeks. Just because you have the 9.2 client code on your Tivo, does not mean you have the Rhapsody App mapped.

    Has any one had this happen?

    1. Select the Music, Photos, Products, & More
    2. Select the Rhapsody Music Service
    3. Repeat many times until getting something other than "Please Wait"
    3. NOT accept the 30-day free trial, yet.
    4. Come back seven days later
    5. Accept the 30-day free trial
    6. See that you only have 23 days left in their free trial.

    OK ... I clicked on that page and it appeared to be the SAME priority page I submitted to get the 9.2j - so I never submitted!

    ok.. I'll try that, can't hurt to submit again I suppose, even if it is the SAME page.

    EDIT: It worked! THANKS ...

    I have used Rhapsody on my 2 Tivos for about a week now. And each day, it has gotten better. Last night, my parents were over, and we spent 3 hours browsing songs. They thought it was the greatest thing ever. I bought the Sansa e260 player and signed up for the Rhapsody to go plan. I flat out love Rhapsody. Getting it on my Tivo is what really puts it over the top for me.

    For me, this is the best app yet for Tivo. Keep working on improving the performance and the UI, and I think Tivo and Real have a hit.

    I appreciate it that people are continuing to use the service after the initial bumpiness. We're all fighting mightily to iron out the issues that we're seeing, and so it's good to hear that you're seeing improvements day to day.

    (Some of the issues you might see now, btw, are actually related to us fixing things ... new server software gets released, which causes hiccups down the chain, etc.)

    For the first time in the 7 days I've had Rhapsody on Tivo, it worked smoothly and flawlessly last night. No "please wait", "loading" that never loaded, dumping out of Rhapsody, etc. Like others I was REALLY frustrated, and about done with it on Tuesday.

    I used plenty of the features in Rhapsody last night (Wed 10/24) and had NO trouble with any of it. I was on Rhapsody continually for 4 hours.

    I LOVE this feature on Tivo!

    I use at everyday when I get home from work. Get Rhapsody started and crank up the volume. Also using it at the gym with the Sansa E260R and the channels. LOVE THE CHANNELS.

    Great App. Keep up the good work.

    Is there a way to turn of the screen saver in the Rhapsody app?

    Also, is there a way to get directly to the Now Playing screen without waiting for the app to time out?

    I don't think there currently is a way to do either. Maybe in later releases?

    You can go back to TiVo Central at any time by pressing the TiVo button. Is that what you are asking for?

    I signed up for the free 30 day trial last night and it proceeded to crash three times in the 45 minutes or so that I used it. Between that and the mediocre sound quality, I wasn't too impressed. I'll try it some more before my trial runs out, but I can't see myself paying for this service.

    I meant the Now Playing of the Rhapsody app, where it displays the album artwork etc.
