    I don't know if this problem existed before I moved from AT&T DSL to Cox Cable Modem or not but when I ran diagnostics it said that Port configuration failed and it said TCP 8080 needs to be open. How do I open it?

    My router is a D-Link 615.

    We have 2 Series 3 TiVo XL boxes.

    We have been having problems with Pandora going on 3 or 4 weeks now. Songs get stuck and the same note repeats over and over, sometimes for just a few seconds and sometimes for a minute or more.

    So I headed over the Network Diagnostics and sure enough, I am getting the same port configuration error on both TiVo boxes which are connecting via the WiFi:

    The port(s) listed below need to be opened on your router. For more information, review your router manual or contact your ISP.

    TCP port 8080

    I called Verizon Fios and (no surprise) they wouldn't help me. I am using the Verizon supplied Actiontec router because my Internet comes over coaxial cable.

    We stream Netflix on our TiVo and have no problems with that, just Pandora.

    I have tried setting up the port forwarding on the router per this article support. tivo. com/ app/ answers/ detail/ a_id/ 402/ kw/ ports and this did not help.

    I have noticed when I use another box to stream Pandora that sometimes that box needs to buffer the stream. I wonder if this is the problem and the TiVo XL just doesn't do a very good job handling that?

    But that still doesn't explain why this has only been a problem for the last several week...or why we are getting this port error now.

    Port 8080 failures are a red herring, they're not the issue.
