Why doesn't TiVo support the features they offer?

    During a recent chat with TiVo support, I was told to "contact YouTube" about a YouTube stuttering issue. Netflix seems to work fine.

    1, I pay TiVo for the services they offer, not YouTube, Netflix, AOL, or anyone else. If TiVo decided to settle on a crappy app and then offer it as a feature, actually supporting it isn't too much to ask for.

    2, Being directed to contact YouTube/Google about this issue is absolutely pointless. I'd have better luck contacting life on Mars. The rep directed me to http://support.google.com/youtube ...

    Normally TiVo support has been great, but when it comes to the extra services they offer, I'm quickly finding out it's a complete waste of time.

    Do you contact apple with an angry birds problem? Not saying tivo is the best app platform, just saying they cannot fix issues with apps that other companies write. I'm not making any kind of statement about your issue at all.

    YouTube is a notorious mess. I wouldn't blame TiVo. Use one of the other boxes you probably have under your TV that also does YouTube. YouTube on an iPad with AirPlay to an Apple TV is really amazing.

    This is a YouTube issue, not a TiVo issue. typing in YouTube/activiate in your browser doesn't work. I found this thread and got to the proper activate place via the Google answer here .... but I can't post the link yet .... as I haven't posted enough. I'll post some messages and come back with the link.

    Aaaaaand ... here it is: http://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/youtube/sPe5FtaerKo

    BTW: LOVE YouTube/TiVo .... really great.
