    Anyone else seeing this tonight?
    It's not a local network thing, AFAIK. Last successful update was at 5:34 pm CST, and nothing's changed at all since then, yet both Tivos are now reporting 'failed while negotiating', 'unrecoverable error' when trying to connect to the Tivo Service?

    I believe Tivo servers are down. Other threads about this issue tonight.

    Well, that would explain why my 240 can see the rest of the network and vice-versa, but can't connect with the mothership.

    Wrote the above a few hours ago, but didn't post it. Problem seems to have been solved on their end since then.

    The problem is, on a series 5 Roamio (I did not try this on the Series 4) you can't manually stop a recording if the TiVo network is down, bummer, and you can't use OD, Netflix, or program your TiVo, except for you in home network your TiVo is like one without any service. This means if TiVo someday went away, to keep using your TiVo would require more than just a program guide hack, the TiVo is now tethered very closely to the TiVo servers.
