I have my tivo premiere hooked up via a netgear wn2500rp wireless bridge to a netgear wndr3700 wireless router. The signal strength is excellent. The tivo premiere feeds into a pioner vsx-1121 receiver which then goes to my pioneer tv. The connection seems very fast- when I transfer from that tivo to my other premiere (which has a wired ethernet connection) it is very fast- 1 hour HD shows in 5-10 minutes total max.
1)But when I'm watching netflix the screen goes out (not just like its paused, but almost like the receiver is switching input modes or something- it goes completely off and the recevier flashes) and then it goes back on- takes a few seconds.
2)Also, sometimes during show streams (not transfers) to the other tivo premiere it will say the connection failed or somethign like that and I have to hit retry and it will continue.
It sounds like its overall some sort of network issue- but what? I've assigned static ip addresses and that hasn't fixed the netflix issue (haven't tested tivo to tivo streaming again)? I should run a ethernet cable to see if that fixes the tivo but with a great wireless signal what could be doing that? Also, if it was just a network issue why does the receiver flash and the tv go comletely off- almost like its changing inputs or something?
