    I'm controlling my Roamio as I have my other tivo's through IP control.

    After several commands, ie 3-4 downs, it freezes and I have to wait several seconds before it will take another command.

    Any ideas? How do I log it as a bug with tivo?

    Assuming you're talking about the older protocol: You need to pause after each command, or you can lock up any of the TiVos that support the network remote protocol (and even potentially make them reboot). This is contrary to the official spec, but it's true by experience. You just want to avoid the perception of lag for the user, while also avoiding locking up the TiVo; I found that a tenth of a second pause worked for that.

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    I'm using the same driver I used with the Series 3 and also the premier with no issues.
